Farscape: Everything You Need To Know About The Comics Before The Movie

SunAeryn Sun Became Commandant of the Peacekeepers
As the comics began, Aeryn was having trouble settling into the role of a new mother. After all, she may have been conceived by parents who were in love — a rare exception among the Peacekeepers — but other than that they played almost no role in her upbringing. In a way, the quest to learn about Deke’s powers is exactly what Aeryn needs: a distraction, something to do to distract her from the fact that she’s got no clue how to bond with a crying infant.

During her search, Aeryn discovers she is a Jaal-Sebacean, the purest of the Peacekeeper bloodlines, and reconnects with the teachings of Yemahl, an ancient and peaceful religion shunned and mocked by most modern Peacekeepers. Skeptical at first, Aeryn eventually finds guidance and purpose in the vision of the Peacekeepers as a force for good, rather than just a pack of thugs for hire. The Peacekeepers were already in bad shape after the events of The Peacekeeper Wars, with many concluding that Commandant Grayza is no longer fit to lead them. That leaves Aeryn perfectly positioned to take up another job she doesn’t particularly want but is unquestionably suited for: Commandant of the Peacekeeper forces on the eve of a war of unprecedented scope and destruction.

    Seriously this is getting a feature film? I’m sorry and I know it’s got a cult fanbase but so many other cancelled shows should get a film. For starters Stargate Universe while not a favourite for most it’s worth giving us an ending for closure, or Quantum Leap, or hell Im not gonna name them all but oh and Dark skies would love that to be remade or continued. Anyway my point is and yes I’m a fan of the show but really there are so many other shows that could have gotten this film over Farscape.

      You’re acting like some exec had a list of shows to green light a movie for and he picked your least favorite. Something a lot of people like, including you apparently, is getting a movie and you feel the need to complain that it wasn’t the highest one on your personal list?

    • JT says:

      Farscape was better than everything you listed. By a lot.

      I love Quantum Leap, I even like Stargate Universe and wish they hadn’t cancelled it, but seriously, Farscape is one of the best shows in the history of television. It really is. And it never really got its due. A smart studio exec might see unmined potential in that.
