It is the scene from ACN, edited from the BBC broadcast, where John and Rygel say "Bitchin!" We are having another Texas Area Scaper Meet! Click here to join us.


 

November 21, 2000 - The .AVI (Windows Media Player) video downloads have now been upgraded. The "teeny-weeny" videos have been replaced by larger, clearer, and in some cases, longer versions. They take a little longer to download, but at least you won't go blind watching them. QuickTime videos for season two will be posted in a few days.


November 15, 2000 - LeatherGirl has added the second part to her "Frell with your minds" fan fic series. Click Here for Illusions. The Download Theater is in the process of being completely remodeled. All the "teeny-weeny"videos are being replaced by larger ones. Most of the scenes are a little longer than the old ones and take longer to download, but they are easier to watch. Quicktime versions of the videos are also being added. The Theater should be complete by December 1, 2000. Enjoy!


November 1, 2000 - Ann Harrington (aka Annigmatic) has added the conclusion of her fan fiction series, Return to Sender. Added a scene to the Download Theater from TWWW, requested by a scaper, which features John and Aeryn in a shoot-out with Pilot. I'm in the process of replacing all the small video downloads with larger-view versions.


October 27, 2000 - The Jim Henson Company requested that I remove the full-length episodes from this site. They said it undercuts their ability to sell the show to broadcasters. Farscape Fantasy is built to celebrate and promote Farscape, not compete with it. I certainly don't want to do something that hurts Farscape, financially or otherwise. Regretfully, I removed the full-length videos. Fortunately, the video clips seem to be okay with Henson, so they can stay.

Now for the good stuff. Ann Harrington (aka Annigmatic) has added parts 5 and 6 of her fan fiction series, Return to Sender. Also added 15 more video clips to the Download Theater. Finally fixed my tape of I,ET and TTLG, so they have been added to the theater. Also added scenes from ABL, CDM, and OOTM. Enjoy!


October 20, 2000 - You can now download That Old Black Magic, the entire episode, from the Download Theater. Ann Harrington (aka Annigmatic) has added parts 3 and 4 to her Fan Fiction series, Return to Sender.


October 19, 2000 - You can now download full-length episodes from The Download Theater. Exodus From Genesis and The Flax are there now with more to come. Also added two more requested scenes from BOD to the Download Theater: John and Aeryn talking about the Vorc; John telling Aeryn about his visions of Scorpy.


October 13, 2000 - Just added a new fanfic called Return To Sender. Also added a couple of shippy scenes, requested by scapers, to the Download Theater. John and Aeryn talking about Talyn at the end of MTB and John and Aeryn remembering something at the end of TL.


September 29, 2000 - Just added 28 photos and 5 video downloads from Ben's appearance on ABC's Politically Correct. Enjoy!

Aeryn revealing to John she is dying in Nerve, John and Aeryn talking about their parents in FT, John telling his Peacekeeper captor to "shoot, kill my sex life!" in LATP2, and the vorc dying in Aeryn's arms from BOD. Enjoy!


September 17, 2000 - Added ACN to the Download Theater. Also added three requested video clips: John blowing up Aeryn's pulse riffle in TFAL, John and Aeryn saying "Sorry for the mess" in BOD, and John being tormented by his mother in WGFA. Enjoy!


September 16, 2000 - The A Clockwork Nebari photo gallery is now open.


September 13, 2000 - I am happy to announce the addition of a new fan fiction to this site. It is called Home For Christmas. The story is written by 3Dbud and it is very good. Click here to enter the Fiction Page.

August 26, 2000 - The Locket Episode Gallery is now open!


August 20, 2000 - Just added Wont Get Fooled Again to the Download Theater. Enjoy!


August 19, 2000 - Won't Get Fooled Again is an episode filled with a great many interesting visuals. Keeping the number of photos down to the usual 50 or 60 required focus, strength, and judicious editorial intellect.

Too bad I am not up to the task. The WGFA gallery - containing 105 stills - is now open!


August 14, 2000 - Just reopened the Download Theater. It seems my first attempt at internet video didn't quite work(compression issues). I've tested the the versions on a Mac(Quicktime) and PCs using a variety of MP players and the videos work now.


August 12, 2000 - Added Beware of Dog to the video still photo gallery. Also built a video download center called "Download Theater." It contains about 40 of my favorite scenes from season two. Windows Media Player required.


August 10, 2000 - Just updated the Growing List of Crichtonisms. In addition to the quotes added, I included 4 video downloads. The 4 download scenes represents my introduction of internet video to this site. They will not be the last, unless I get sued by Henson, or somebody. Site just passed 4000 unique visitors and 5300 total hits.

August 5, 2000 - Just added 64 photos to the Look At The Princess part 3 gallery. Just realized I have been misspelling "princess" throughout the site. I'll fix it as I get the chance.


July 29, 2000 - added 64 photos to the Look At The Princess part2 gallery.


July 22, 2000 - Just added 64 video still photos to the Look At The Princess part 1 gallery. Site just surpassed 3000 unique visitors and 4000 total hits.


July 13, 2000 - Hopefully, I have solved the accessibility issue visitors using Netscape have experienced. If you enter a page that looks very strange (stranger than usual) or is just HTML script, please let me know - I'll fix it ASAP.

Farscape Fantasy now contains more than 135 web pages and is growing rapidly. To aid in the navigation of this site, I just added a Site List page. It contains a link to every page in Farscape Fantasy.


July 12, 2000 - Just added a little surprise for you to this site. Click ???? from the Features page to see it. :)


July 9, 2000 - Completed the season one photo gallery with the additions of episodes 17 - 22.

This site isn't even two months old, yet it contains 100+ web pages of original content and 1600+ photos. I realize there are larger fan sites out there--I'm not in a contest for most bloated site--but Farscape Fantasy is larger at this point in its development than I would have imagined. Site just surpassed 3000 total hits.


July 8, 2000 - Just added "Out Of Their Minds" to the season two photo gallery. The season one photo gallery should be complete by Sunday July 9, 2000


July 5, 2000 - Just added episodes 7 through 16 to the photo gallery. Enjoy!


July 3, 2000 - I wasn't planning to add a season one photo gallery - there are already a number of excellent sites out there with plenty of photos from last season. However, some of those sites are having problems and I've gotten a number of e-mails from visitors wondering when a S1 gallery is coming to this site. Who am I to deny Scapers the chance for more photos? Besides, this video still capture thing is rather fun and I've gotten good at it. So, what the hell...

Just opened a photo gallery for the first six episodes and should have them all open by July 14, 2000. Enjoy!


June 25, 2000 - Added "Crackers Don't Matter" to the Poster Gallery (with many more to come) and completely redesigned the Crew Bios section. Added a new gallery called--very original title here--the "Funny Gallery."


June 24, 2000 - Just added Dream A Little Dream to the video still gallery. Enjoy!


June 20, 2000 - Added Mind The Baby, Vitas Mortis, and Taking the Stone to the video still gallery.


June 19, 2000 - Just added Crackers Don't Matter, Picture If You Will, and The Way We Weren't to the video still gallery. Also, updated Before They Were Stars - John. Enjoy!


June 17, 2000 - Just added my first video still capture gallery - Home on the Remains. Yesterday was the one month anniversary of the launch of this site and it already has 2,000 total hits! Granted, those aren't quite Yahoo! numbers, but I am gratified nonetheless. Thank you.


June 12, 2000 - Just updated the new Features page, Galleries page, Texas Area Scapers page and a Credits page.


June 10, 2000 - Just added Aeryn, D'Argo, Zhaan, Crais and updated Scorpius to the "Before They Were Stars" feature. Enjoy!


May 31, 2000-Well, my plans of having phase one of this site completely finished by June 1 won't be happening. It turns out I spent the Memorial Day weekend at the Texas Scapers Meet and had too much fun with them. I didn't have time to work on the site as thought I would have. However, I am hard at work on the site now and will have it up within the week or so. You're going to love the additions to "Before They Were Stars."

Would like to add that even though I have only downloaded photos from sites that have given their permission, I got tired of feeling like a thief in the night. Bought a video capture/editing card for my lowly PC and will be adding my own photos to the site from now on. The only drawback to this arrangement is I now must use the PC for something - I use my Mac for everything else. :)


May 18, 2000-I did it again! I knew a Chrichton in school and keep spelling John's name the same way. Just when I thought I had broken the habit, I build a site with his name misspelled about a hundred times! Thank God for site management software that will fix the problem quickly. I hope. A special thanks to the observant-and diplomatic-visitor who pointed out my error.


May 12, 2000-The official launch date of June 1 will be beaten with ease. I'll probably start publicizing the site in a week or so. With most of the site up and running, I'm inviting a few scapers in to take a preview look. Not sure what their reaction will be - hopefully they wont pan the site too harshly...


May 10, 2000-This site is coming together nicely. Just competed the Crew BIOS, which leaves the episode guide as the only feature left to complete. I've got two episode pages done-that leaves 26 more to go. Should have started this site a year ago when there were only 6 or 7 episodes. Oh well...


May 5, 2000-Just showed a friend the picture of "Boy Scorpy." Even though he finds my interest in Farscape bizarre, he literally fell to the floor with laughter at the sight of Scorpius dressed like Boy George. I'm thinking an entire feature could be built around this sort of thing. Going to call it "Before They Were Stars."


May 3, 2000-Building this site is more exhausting than I had thought. Fortunately, most of the graphics are up and the layout is set. I am biased, but I happen to think it looks good for a first generation site. Now, if I could just figure what kind of content I'm going to put here...


May 2, 2000-Just got farscapefantasy.com registered-almost misspelled "fantasy" on the registration form. I've done this many times before, but it still amazes me the first time I enter a domain name in the url and my own site comes up.


April 24, 2000-Farscape just couldn't survive without another fan site, so I decided to build one. Target launch date is June 1, 2000
