Best show ever, IMO. At the very least, best scifi show ever. The Story: An earth scientist, while conducting an experiment, gets sucked through a wormhole and appears on the other side of the galaxy. He gets mixed up in a prison escape, and joins the prisoners because he is believed to have killed a peacekeeper. The main plot centers on the wormhole technology John Crichton is believed to have, and the powers fighting over it and him. The Setting: Aboard the captured prison ship in a remote part of the galaxy. The Races: Humans Sebaceans - A race nearly identical to humans except for an intolerance for high temperatures. Most are entirely committed to the Peacekeepers - A galactic empire acting as police for most of the known galaxy. Ruled by a military dictatorship. Luxans - A warrior race. Humanoid, but with tentacles on and near the face and a venomous tongue. Delvians - Sentient carnivorous plants. Humanoid in appearance, but blue. Nebari - Grey humanoids, ruled by a centralized government that does not tolerate nonconformity. Hynerian - A small aquatic race, somewhat lizard-like in appearance. Ruled by a monarch called "Dominar". Scarrans - A hot-blooded reptilian race. They are extremely powerful, impervious to most typical handheld weapons, and have a "heat ray" useful as a short range weapon. Also with some telepathic abilities. Banik - A people enslaved by the Peacekeepers. Some of them (Stykera) have strange spiritual powers. Kalish - Another humanoid race, but with a few drastic differences: They can "shift gravity" to stand on walls or ceilings, and severed limbs can be reattached almost instantly. Many Kalish are slaves in the Scarran empire. Interions - Humanoids. Can melt metal by screaming. Leviathans - A living ship capable of faster than light jumps called Starbursts. Each one lives in a permanent, symbiotic relationship with its pilot. Many Leviathans have been captured and pressed into service by the Peacekeepers as cargo and prison ships. Obedience is forced through the use of a "control collar". Pilots - A race that is bonded (physically and mentally) to Leviathan ships. The Main characters: The Prisoners: John Crichton (Human) - Buck Rogers, a fish out of water. The main character. Aeryn Sun (Sebacean) - Peacekeeper. Exiled aboard Moya because she was "irreversibly contaminated" by her contact with the aliens. Dominar Rygel XVI (Hynerian) - Sovereign of the Hynerian empire. A ruler in exile, imprisoned for 130 years prior to the mutiny. Ka D'Argo (Luxan) - A soldier. Imprisoned aboard Moya for the murder of his Sebacean wife. Pa'U Zotoh Zhaan (Delvian) - Priestess. Imprisoned for killing another Delvian who was collaborating with the Peacekeepers. Chiana (Nebari) - Dirty slut. Prisoner. Escaped onto Moya while being transported back to her homeworld for "reprogramming". Jool (Interion) - Reanimated by Moya's crew after being stored for "parts" in a medical lab for decades. Sikozu (Kalish) - A Leviathan hunter. She is the guide for a team that "harvests" material from Leviathan transports, killing them in the process. Stark (Stykera) - Escaped from Scorpius's Gammak Base when Crichton and crew destroyed it. Has spiritual powers, and is sensitive to death. Pilot (Pilot) - Moya's second pilot. Moya (Leviathan) - More than just the ship. She's a person; an actual character in the show. The Peacekeepers: Captain Bilar Crais - Sebacean Scorpius - half Sebacean, half Scarran Commandant Mele-on Grayza - Sebacean Captain Meeklo Braca - Sebacean The Scarrans: Emperor Staleek War Minister Akhna Other Harvey. A neural clone of Scorpius in Crichton's head. His sole purpose is to secure the wormhole technology from Crichton. Any questions and discussion are welcome. edit: Added character info and characters that I had left out.
