"My name is John Crichton, an astronaut. A radiation wave hit and I got shot through a wormhole. Now I'm lost in some distant part of the universe on a ship, a living ship, full of strange alien life forms. Help me. Listen, please. Is there anybody out there who can hear me? I'm being hunted by an insane military commander. Doing everything I can. I'm just looking for a way home."

Farscape was a science-fiction television series produced jointly between Australian and American production companies. Created by Rockne S. O'Bannon, the series was produced by Hallmark Entertainment and Jim Henson Productions. Farscape aired for four seasons from 1999 to 2003 on the Nine Network in Australia and on the Sci-Fi Channel in the United States. A sequel film, Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars was produced in 2004, which resolved many of the dangling subplots and unanswered questions left behind from the series. The franchise spawned several comic book projects beginning with the 2002 two-issue limited series Farscape: War Torn, published under the WildStorm Productions imprint of DC Comics. In 2009, Boom! Studios acquired the license to publish comic books set in the Farscape universe and produced several limited series such as Farscape: Gone and Back, Farscape: Strange Detractors and Farscape: D'Argo's Lament. In 2002, Jim Henson Productions and Simon & Schuster Interactive released the Farscape computer roleplaying video game for Windows/PC.
