The third season of FARSCAPE explores the wonders, possibilities and dangers of the wormhole phenomenon more completely than ever before. Through more ominous, adult-themed tales, the series also peeks into the darker corners of the minds of Moya's crew. In particular, FARSCAPE SEASON THREE shows the dichotomy of John Crichton: From his volatile, passionate bond with Aeryn to his ability to at once unite and divide the loyalties of the crew. As crew members embark on personal missions to deal with individual agendas, the stories showcase smaller ensembles, allowing each character and relationship more room to grow. Before the company reunites, lovers and friends are betrayed and family ties are ripped asunder. Old enemies become allies and dear friends are lost forever. Some critics have called Season 3 the year FARSCAPE matured into a "grown-up show." Others see it as the year it's creators' brilliance was thrown into overdrive.
