* BadGuysDoTheDiryWork: In the episode "Prayer", it's ambiguous whether or not John knew Scorpius was going to [[spoiler:kill the merged Chiana-Aeryn]] when he brought him along to the alternate universe, but it's what had to be done.

* AlienCatnip: In the episode "Kansas", Rygel starts stealing candy from trick-or-treating children. High on the candy, he asks John, "How illegal is this dren? You've gotta get me more! I don't care what it costs!" Later, in "A Constellation Of Doubt," he points out that most species consider refined sucrose to be an addictive poison. As Earth isn't that [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad politically correct]] ''[[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1290118/Hospitals-ban-sugar-tea-machines-poses-health-risk.html quite]]'' '''[[http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,485504,00.html yet]]''', it's available everywhere, and Rygel is indulging himself.

High on the candy, he asks John, "How illegal is this dren? You've gotta get me more! I don't care what it costs!" Later, in "A Constellation Of Doubt," he points out that most species consider refined sucrose to be an addictive poison. In a later episode ("A Constellation of Doubt"), Rygel even comments that most species consider refined sucrose to be an addictive poison. So it's existence wasn't unknown to him, but he was unprepared for the abundance.

To humans, it’s a cheap high. To aliens who are not used to being able to pick up hundreds of calories in the palm of their hand? Alien Catnip.

Added DiffLines:

* CloseEnoughTimeline: Played very darkly in ''...Different Destinations''. The original timeline had a battle end in an honorable surrender that ended the war. The final timeline had the battle end in a crazed massacre of civilians that so horrified both sides the war was ended. This was the best they could do; in all the other versions we see the planet was depopulated (or sterilized... or totally destroyed) in a much longer and nastier war.

Added DiffLines:

* BioData: The Ancients inscribed knowledge of wormholes into John Crichton's brain and his DNA. [[spoiler: Eventually he unlocked and understood it. Although the Ancients removed it from his head after he used it, his son was implied to inherit it. The Scarrans even tried to extract it from the DNA of Aeryn's unborn child.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AlienAbduction: Not quite the standard way, but when John Crichton emerges from the wormhole in "Premiere", Moya pulls Farscape One in with her [[TractorBeam Docking Web]] and brings him to the bridge. Unlike other alien abductions, he is freely capable of moving, and the aliens aren't scientists but escaped prisoners who have captured his ship thinking that he can help them escape quickly. He is, however, incapacitated later, and examined while unconscious.

to:

* CripplingOverspecialization: The physiology of Pilot's species is largely geared towards maintaining ship systems, at the expense of personal mobility. While bonded with a Leviathan, a Pilot lives exclusively in the Pilot's Den, unable to run, hide, or defend itself from a threat without the use of ship systems or [=DRDs=]. This is quite evident in "DNA Mad Scientist", "The Way We Weren't", and "Eat Me", when [[spoiler: Pilot's arm gets cut off.]], [[spoiler: Moya's first Pilot was executed in her Den]], and [[spoiler: Rovhu's Pilot's arms are regularly eaten off.]]

* TheCastShowoff: In "Won't Get Fooled Again," the Scorpius analogue is a drummer - a skill Wayne Pygram possesses and has put to good use.
** In "Scratch 'N' Sniff", Chiana does some fire-twirling to wow a crowd of onlookers. Gigi Edgley possesses this skill in real life.
** Does Creator/ClaudiaBlack's lizard-like [[FetishFuel tongue trick]] count as a skill?
*** I suspect her husband would say yes.



* ContractualImmortality: Usually avoided, but occasionally pretty obvious, as with each of Rygel's "deaths".

Added DiffLines:

** Played with in how Scorpius spent so much time talking of how brilliant a tactician Crichton was and considered him a truly worthy opponent. When working with the crew, he was thus rocked to realize Crichton had no idea what he was doing and all his "victories" were mainly luck.
