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.

Suns and Lovers - S3-E2

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.

Season of Death (2) - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After Chiana and Jothee lie to Rygel about a pot that exploded which caused the mess, it cuts to the room where Scorpius and his men are holed up while looking at a hologram map of the clinic, and in the first shot facing Grunchlk and Kobrin the boom mic dips into view at the top of the screen.

Relativity - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When they are suggesting decoys to lure the Retrieval Squad, Stark questions the idea and Crichton says "Stark, if you have any other ideas we'll be thrilled to hear them before we go out". At the same time they are walking down a passage way with the camera following. As they turn the corner the camera's shadow can be seen on the wall to the left.

Green Eyed Monster - S3-E8

Visible crew/equipment: After Crais asks if Aeryn have seen the surveillance logs, it cuts to a close-up shot of Crichton. If you look closely up in the left corner of the screen you can see the boom mike pop into view.

Season of Death (2) - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Aeryn fires D'Argo's Qualta blade at Plonek, it hits the Scarran multiple times on his left side creating a large bloody wound on his chest, and then John shoves the icicle into the right side of Plonek's chest. However, after Plonek pushes John to the ground, in the close-up the icicle is on Plonek's left side with no wound on his right, but when Plonek collapses the icicle is back on his right, and still the bloody wound is gone.

Meltdown - S3-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Stark and Sierjna go to Talyn's rudimentary pilot's den, notice that Stark's vest has suddenly developed five randomly placed grommet openings, which will be where Talyn's wiring will attach when Talyn bonds with Stark. And when Stark-Pilot says, "Talyn you will turn away, you must turn away," there's boom movement at the right and left of the screen. Also, later when Stark-Pilot flies Talyn closer to the sun to rescue Sierjna, and once she reappears, there's a shot from behind Stark-Pilot and we can see the long rod (not Talyn's wiring) that's behind his right leg attached to his pants, which is part of the support equipment to have Stark-Pilot hover.

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.
