Trivia: Lexx
  • Dueling Shows: Farscape.
  • Fake American:
    • Many of the American characters in Season 4 are portrayed by Canadian actors.
    • Rolf Kanies plays the American President Priest in S4, complete with his own German accent.
    • English actors Craig Charles and Hattie Hayridge of Red Dwarf fame play Texans in P4X. Hayridge (badly) attempts a Texas drawl, while Charles doesn't bother.
    • English Josh Hartnett lookalike Rupert Evans plays Midwestern boy Cleasby in Prime Ridge.
  • Fan Nickname: "Supreme Beans," or just "the Beans," for the people behind the show, after a fan misspelled "beings" on a forum when referring to them.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Prince is a vampire, Yottskry is Alex and Admiral Tolwyn, Poetman is Dr. Frank N. Furter. Rolf Kanies' roll as President Priest becomes Hilarious in Hindsight after his more recent role as Hans Krebs in Downfall; he's even in the infamous Memetic Mutation scene.
  • Screwed by the Network: Not to a Fox level, but the Sci-Fi channel's commercials - and airing of episodes wildly out of order, showing all the raunchy ones back to back though they did show them in order eventually - would lead you to believe that it's porn dressed up as Space Opera.
    • To be fair to the network, they did give us the fourth season out of fan demand when word got out it wasn't going to happen, which is more than they did for Farscape. Also, when the September 11th attacks happened during the middle of season four and a new episode was preempted for a network-spanning broadcast about it, many fans found the tribute show ultimately depressing instead of uplifting and stayed up in the hopes that the late-night encore would be the new episode; it wasn't, but instead of just re-running the previous week's show, they had the thought to re-run fan-favorite Brigadoom.
  • What Could Have Been: Eva Habermann could've been Zev for the entire run; she left because news about season two was taking so long that she had to choose between taking other work or banking on the show getting picked up.
    • On a smaller scale, the original plan for Lyekka Vs Japan was to have Wist from Eating Pattern come back, but the actress was unavailable.
    • "Midsummer Nightmare" was intended to be filmed at Stonehenge, but the location was unavailable due to restrictions imposed during the 2001 outbreak of foot and mouth disease in the UK (lampshaded in the show), so they had to settle for the decommissioned Battersea Power Station instead.
