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.

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.

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.

Out of Their Minds - S2-E9

Visible crew/equipment: After Zhaan has taken control of the Halosian ship, when Zhaan's transmission appears on Moya's clamshell viewer, in the shots facing Rygel, John, and Aeryn (in each others' bodies) we can see the puppeteer, who's wearing a headset, with his right arm up in Rygel's sleeve. Fun to watch.

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.

Visible crew/equipment: After Meelak opens the door to Rygel's quarters and asks Crichton why he wants the Hynerian's help, Rygel betrays Chrichton and says, "I don't think the mind cleansing is working," and when John punches Rygel's face, in the close-up we can see the puppeteer's fingers beside Rygel, behind the table.

Jeremiah Crichton - S1-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After the pod has landed on the planet, when D'Argo and Rygel experience power loss, the hoverchair looses power and Rygel's thrown into the dirt. Then as Rygel shouts, "D'Argo? Where are you going?" the head of the puppeteer, who's wearing a knit cap, can be seen at the right side of the screen.

...Different Destinations - S3-E5

Trivia: While they're waiting for the Venek Horde to attack again, when John's chained to the statue Scorpius/Harvey's playing the harmonica with his feet up on John's lap. Notice that both soles of Scorpius/Harvey's red boots have the name "Andy" written on them. In "Toy Story" Woody's boot has "Andy" written on its sole, and here in John's mind it's to signify John's ownership of the neural clone.

Beware of Dog - S2-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After John acts out what the word "shoot" means before he and Aeryn release the vorc, it cuts to the wiggly-eared vorc moving down a corridor while Aeryn and John follow behind him, and we can see a crew member's arm holding cables for the moving animatronic vorc, at the left side of the screen.

My Three Crichtons - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When they listen to the sphere's signal to analyze it, in the shots of Rygel, D'Argo, and John, particularly when John asks, "What stopped?" just before the message that only the three Johns hear, we can see the brunette puppeteer with his arm up Rygel's sleeve, at the right side of the screen.

Premiere - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After John successfully instructs Aeryn on how to maneuver and slingshot Moya away from the PK's Command Carrier, Zhaan gives John a very special thank you. When it cuts to the DRD scooting across the floor in Moya's empty Command, a crew member wearing shorts can be seen at the right side of the screen, as he's looking in the direction of the DRD, and is presumably controlling the DRD's remote control.

Visible crew/equipment: After the transport pod successfully ignites the moon, D'Argo and John are floating in space while Aeryn's in her Prowler, and just as we hear Pilot start to say, "The offspring Leviathan, Talyn, has broken from Moya's side," we can see the face of Rygel's puppeteer under the table, at the bottom right of the screen.

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.
