* 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.]]

* 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.

* 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.]]

Moving to Trivia.
* 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".

** 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.

** In "Bone to be Wild", when M'Lee's eyes and her blue head bulbs turn red, it's time to run away. Very quickly.

** Stark. He can potentially survive death and has empathic abilities. Unfortunately, if he helps someone crossover to death, darkness in their soul latches onto him.This keeps people at a distance and has damaged his mind. It also makes him a target for people like Scorpius, and in ''Prayer'', [[spoiler: Sikozu-Stark sees her friend/lover murdered because people want to use her power.]]

** John mentions at one point that he lost his virginity to Karen Shaw in the back of a pickup truck, and it was mentioned by Maldis-in-disguise even earlier in "That Old Black Magic". In "Kansas" the Moya crew is transported back to 1985 Earth, and we get to see a teenaged John Crichton meet "Karen Shaw," whose name he mishears: her actual name is [[spoiler: Chiana]] ** Actually, he only mishears [[spoiler: "Chiana"]] as "Karen". The reason he thinks her last name is "Shaw" is how [[spoiler: Chiana]] keeps saying "sheeya", so he thinks she's saying "Shaw".

**Notably, [[TheEmpire the Peacekeepers]] were the black to our heroes' gray in the first two seasons, as some of the Moya crew were violent criminals in their own right but were nevertheless oppressed by a totalitarian regime. In the next two seasons, the Peacekeepers had their own morality turn grayer when it was revealed that their authoritarian actions were a part of being locked in an arms race with [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent the Scarrans]], a species who could devastate many of their planets if war broke out.
