PKWars - Part One
« on: February 17, 2012, 10:19:11 AM »


Some people like Peacekeeper Wars, some don’t.  I am one of the people that do; in fact I absolutely adore it and would be embarrassed to tell just how many times I have watched it over the years   :-[   I will be forever grateful to the wonderful scapers that worked a miracle and managed to get some closure for the Farscape series.  Thank you!!   :bow1:

~~

The miniseries opens with the worrying sight of John lying comatose with the chilly voice over of Aeryn   :worried:

So much happens during the miniseries as we begin with the amazing CGI that continues throughout this action packed story of love, betrayal and heartache.

The series ended with John and Aeryn crystallised but the Moyans did not give up on them and send Rygel to collect our beloved couple’s pieces from the bottom of the Qujagan Sea in the hope that the diagnosan that Chiana, Stark and Grunchlk arrive with can help.

John and Aeryn are indeed put back together and during this first part, attempt to get married not once but twice ... both without success. Aeryn is found not to be pregnant by the diagnosan   :o   However poor Rygel is now reluctantly the carrier of the couple’s child with the possibility of transfer not advisable at such an early stage in the baby’s development. Hearing from his cousin Bishan does not help this situation either.

Upon learning John is indeed alive Scorpius abandons his command and arrives with Sikozu, forcing everyone to go into hiding where Noranti recognises the Eidelons and D’Árgo informs them about Arneesk.

Of course Scorpius isn’t the only villain the Moyans have to deal with.  It seems Grayza has her sights set on command again and will stop at nothing to obtain it, even poisoning her lover Grand Chancellor Maryk   :rolleyes:

The journey to Arneesk is interrupted by Tragans boarding Moya and attempting to take control.  After much gunfire and the loss of Caa’ta the crew manage to take back control and make their way to the water planet, to be reunited with Jool and leave Pikal with his own people to learn how to use his long lost peacemaking abilities.
 
Of course the Scarrens are not going to give up the fight and fire on the Arneesk Temple killing everyone there including Jool   :sosad:  Their attention is then focused on the crew who are ordered to abandon Moya in order to save her.  Once onboard the Scarren decimator, Rygel is taken away and threatened with torture unless John cooperates.  To protect his child, John has no choice but to take Staleek through a wormhole to see Einstein who confirms that John cannot make a wormhole weapon and that indeed no one should have that power.

While John is away Aeryn learns the origins of peacekeepers proving that Sebaceans are the product of genetically enhanced humans. Ahkna attempts to kill Rygel and also discovers Lo’La, ordering it to be fired upon leaving both D’Argo and Chiana floating helplessly in space   :worried:  Thankfully Jothee is close by and brings about their rescue.

Yondalao now discovers just how brutal the Scarren race can be and even after asking Stark for help realises bringing about peace may be a difficult task even for him.  His efforts do seem to work for a short time though and peace is assured until Ahkna interferes and kills the Eidelon. Stark is then forced to take his knowledge in an effort to safeguard it.

Part one ends with the crew waist deep in a paralytic embalming gas and Rygel in desperate need of the baby’s removal.

Will they all survive???   :nails:

That sucks.  There are some almost-good reasons to miss a rewatch.  Getting stuck at work late is not one of them.
