Re: Farscape Timeline / Chronology

Postby DIrishB on Wed Feb 16, 2011 12:07 am

So this is a Farscape timeline I've been working on for years. I recently bought all 4 seasons on DVD and re-watched them all to help pin down some more exact placements for the Farscape timeline.

First things first.

This timeline includes everything Farscape, the episodes, the novels, the comics, the short stories, and even the crappy PC game. The purpose of this timeline was an attempt to make all the disparate fictional elements work together as one long, flowing narrative, and I think for the most part it works.

How to read it:

First, the episode, comic, novel, short story or game is listed. Episodes are bolded and colored black, comics are italicized and colored green, novels are italicized and colored blue, and the short stories from the Farscape Magazine and RPG are colored red, and the game is bolded and in gray. The different colors are used to help differentiate between the different media formats.

Secondly, the proposed date/month/year that episode takes place in is listed next and underlined. If a date is in parentheses, this indicates a flashback in the episode to an earlier year or month.

Finally, a description of what that entry is is listed at the end: episodes available on DVD, comics available in TPBs, short stories from a specific issue of Farscape Magazine, etc.



Lastly, to the nitty gritty: The dates.

I know many fans will right away take issue with the fact I placed the beginning of the show in March, 2000, as opposed to March, 1999 as most Farscape timelines do, but there's a reason for it and it draws directly from the show itself, Season 4.

In Season 4, when Crichton and the crew come to Earth, its established concretely that the year is 2003, and apparently towards the end of 2003 since the episode occurs around Christmas. A Constellation of Doubt is specifically said to occur a couple months after they leave Earth, so probably the end of February or beginning of March, 2004. Then, in the final episode (Bad Timing) and in Peacekeeper Wars (which picks up 2 months after Bad Timing), Crichton specifically states he came through the wormhole 4 years ago. This alone indicates he came through the wormhole in March, 2000, not 1999.

Granted, it could be argued he was grossly under-estimating the time he was in the Uncharted Territories, but thats unlikely and less logical.


Otherwise, most month placements are derived from mentions in the show (there are a surprising amount of time markers in the show which help derive the dates).

I haven't read the new Boom studios comics yet so their placements are tentative.

Otherwise, what do you think? Any adjustments you think are needed? Please let me know!
