[[folder: How does the time travel in "Kansas" Work?]]
* If Chiana was Karen Shaw, doesn't that suggest that they're in a stable time loop and that these events must have happened in John's personal history before? However, if it's a stable time loop wouldn't John remember that his father was going to go on the ''Challenger'' but then didn't? If history was different when they went back (as it appeared to be and as indicated by "Unrealised Realities" would happen) then was there just a completely different Karen Shaw that John originally lost his virginity to and Chiana taking that name was a complete coincidence? Following on from that logic, is it therefore possible that young John slept with both the actual Karen Shaw and Chiana? Did he assume that Karen Shaw was actually just Chiana out of her Halloween costume and never know they were separate people (causing the actual Karen confusion when he mentioned "last time")?

** Alternatively, the blood becoming toxic may not be an advantage but the way of dealing with it may be. Humans can get infected through an open wound. There's no evolutionary advantage to that and we have nothing to do about it. If a Luxan is particularly vulnerable to infection/toxicity in injured areas, their body may automatically redirect anti-infection agents to those areas when they detect the injury. They may detect injury based around pain level. When the pain level increases, more anti-toxicity agents are sent to that area. So a Luxan who causes themselves pain, can actually reduce their toxicity. The blood changing colour is then just a handy visual clue to them.

[[folder: How did the John on Talyn know that Scorpius was still alive?]]
* In "Incubator" the John on Moya was surprised (though not that surprised) to learn that Scorpius was still alive since he'd earlier thought he was dead (since "Season of Death", before they split). Yet in "Infinite Possibilities: Daedalus Demands" John and Aeryn (on Talyn) speculate that the trap may be a Scorpius trap and Harvey mentions that he doesn't care whether Scorpius knows how to use the wormhole knowledge. They don't just speculate that Scorpius may be alive, no one even seems to consider the possibility that he's dead. When did the Talyn crew learn that Scorpius was alive?

**There definitely seems to be a limit to the distance travelled (since they always ended up in the Uncharted Territories) so it's not a completely random point in space and does somehow relate to your initial position upon entering starburst. Pilot mentioned in "Through the Looking Glass" that, "Starburst is technically the seam between space-time dimensions. Moya’s power cells allow us access and we simply ride out the energy stream until we're pushed out. At random." So presumably the direction could be chosen but you have no idea where you'll be pushed out (whether before or after your intended destination). An extended starburst could potentially just mean you guarantee it will be longer before you get pushed out, though still don't know for sure where you will end up.

** Scarrans have the technology to transfer foetuses (foeti?) between women. It is entirely plausible that with sufficiently advanced technology and the canonical fact that there was a massive failure rate indicating that they tried this a lot of times, they could manage it once (and even then, the mother died in the process).

** In all likelihood, because nobody figured out where Velorek's sabotage had taken place and Moya failed to concieve a child, the Peacekeepers probably gave up on Moya and returned her to the field; in the meantime, they either tried the same thing with a different Leviathan, or scrapped the project altogether.

** It would mostly just be expensive. All of the technology to fly to the moon exists, and NASA (among other space agencies) has the knowhow to fly such a mission. Given a compelling enough reason (such as John's notes) to fly to the moon, we could do it given enough cash.

** She was mentioned as being sent back to the base. We don't know which base specifically, but we do know of one, and that ended up being nuked by John and Company at the end of Season 1.

** In addition to that, Scorpius injected the neural chip into Crichton's brain while he was a prisoner on the base. Scorpius may have planned on injecting the chip, waiting for it to remove the information and then him remove it all the while at the base all within the timeframe of a few days. He didn't expect a rescue mission by the Moya crew and a subsequent nuking of the base.



** T'raltixx's species seems to feed on light somehow. And just before being defeated he says there are thousands more of his species out there who will find another leviathan and use it to "spread across the galaxy like a plague". So his goal was to take over the world.

** Actually, Aeryn was learning how to speak English prior to him getting pulled down the wormhole in "Unrealized Reality." She was seen learning more in 1985 due to Sesame Street and Wheel of Fortune enough to be able to speak. D'argo, however, only knew four words, which Chiana taught him, which were "yes, no, bite me." And, also, keep in mind, they've been hanging around John Crichton for a couple of years. They're bound to pick up some English from him.

** In the Boom!Studio comics, which are an official continuation of the show and even written by some of the writers of the show, Rygel does eventually leave Moya to reclaim his throne (in fact, the short story "Horizons", which is considered non-canon, even has Rygel retaking his throne with the help of the Moya crew in a similar way as seen in the comics). So, after the events of The Peacekeeper Wars, which also mentions that he'll be leaving for Hyernia, he does.
