Family Ties - S1-E22

Visible crew/equipment: After Rygel's transport pod returns to Moya, as the docking bay door slides open, in the shot facing everyone while they have their weapons drawn we can see the bare floor. However, when Aeryn checks Crais for hidden weapons and then as D'Argo approaches him, there's a blue crash mat on the floor. Then it vanishes again.

Relativity - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When Stark and Aeryn are back aboard Talyn with Xhalax, who is tied up, when Stark says, "As far as I can tell, Talyn's systems are almost back to normal," we can see the puppeteer's face (wearing a weird black mask) and hands under Rygel's hoverchair.

...Different Destinations - S3-E5

Other mistake: While in the past on the Jocacean Memorial Planet, after Dacon is sent up on the wall by his commander, when the Venek Horde are coming over the wall Aeryn pulls one down and throws him to the ground, and we can see one of the armor pieces lying on the ground with the actor name "Dacon" written on the inside in English.

Throne for a Loss - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: After Rygel realizes that he can loosen the soil with the dumped gruel, it cuts to John and Aeryn as they approach the Tavlek camp, and when Aeryn tells John, "I am going to take out every last Tavlek. No survivors. No mercy. Now give me the oculars," John holds up the syringe (with Zhaan's sleep mist) that Aeryn had given him earlier, and we can see "DG-4" engraved on the side of the gun, revealing that the prop dept used the model DG-4 aluminum air blow dust gun to play the part of the syringe.

They've Got a Secret - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: After D'Argo finds the Peacekeeper control panel and rips out the wire, he's thrown back and slides down a shaft. When he stops sliding we can see the safety cable behind him just before he finds the Peacekeeper shield, and then when he continues to slide down the shaft we can see the safety cable once again.

Visible crew/equipment: When Zhaan and Stark are at the bar, after Stark says, "That's just about the last of the DRDs. If Crichton's correct, they should give us some indication of where the signal's coming from," the boom mic dips into view at the top of the screen.

Mind the Baby - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After Crais "humbly" accepts Talyn's offer of the Hand of Friendship, just as the metal tentacle rises up from below the floor before the neural transponder is embedded in Crais, we can see a crew member's hand holding the tentacle at the bottom of the screen.

I, E.T. - S1-E7

Other mistake: In this episode the family that John and the gang encounter are able to understand him. Yet if the planet has never experienced encounters with alien life forms, this is impossible without translator microbes.

Kansas (2) - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: After Scorpius tells Braca that the future of Peacekeeper survival depends on him, it cuts back to Earth and when the Sheriff says, "I got the warrant. Let's go search that house," as the car pulls away we can see a nice reflection of a crew member and the reflector screen.

More quotes from Farscape

Trivia: Over the course of the four seasons, D'Argo's face mask / make-up changes considerably. First season, his face was a dark beige colour, and his nose was very obviously just stuck on. Three seasons later, his face is brown with a reddish tint, with much rounder features.

Show generally

Question: Why is John's Farscape-1 module able to navigate wormholes where some other, more sophisticated craft, notably Peacekeeper Prowlers, cannot without liquifying passengers?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: It's never explained. John mentions a theory that his less technologically developed craft simply interferes with the wormhole less than the "superior" Vipers, but they never make a concrete determination on that point. But we also have to take into account the fact that Moya traverses wormholes with no ill effect as well.
