Publisher's Summary

TV’s Sci Fi masterpiece FARSCAPE returns! Farscape creator Rockne O’Bannon continues his creation in comic book form right where the Peacekeeper Wars left off! Find out what’s in store for John Crichton, Aeryn Sun, Rygel, Chiana, and the rest of the Moya crew! Do the comics tie into Sci-Fi Channel’s upcoming webisodes? You know it, ‘Scapers! Don’t frelling miss this!


Shortly after The Peacekeeper Wars, Moya is en route to Hyneria when Rygel learns that his cousin Dominar Bishan has placed a bounty on his head. John Crichton and Aeryn Sun adjust to their lives as parents as Crichton searches for a planet to settle down. Chiana, meanwhile, copes with her grief at Ka D'Argo's death by constantly having sex with Jothee. No one notices a dark, mysterious craft tailing Moya.

Moya reaches Hynerian space and Rygel plans to meet with a group of supporters on Hyneria's fourth moon. Rygel, Chiana, and Jothee take a transport pod to meet with Rygel's people while John and Aeryn stay aboard Moya to take care of baby D'Argo, whom Crichton has nicknamed "Deke". The rendezvous with Rygel's "supporters" turns out to be a trap and Bishan's men capture Rygel, Chiana, and Jothee.
