While contacting Sci Fi is great and we must keep it up, I want to remind people that contacting other networks is also a high priority. As a source from the show puts it:
"Yes, [the cause of the cancellation] was a change of regimes at the network [Sci Fi], the new guys don't get the show, and don't like it...
...[however] UPN is looking for a companion to Enterprise
, TNT has expressed some initial interest in the show
, and a flood of fan passion aimed at them might help them see the merits of bringing over an award-winning series with a built-in audience. And Showtime is obviously very good about putting on sf television
Please pass it on to fans that they should express their passion (write/fax/etc) about the series to Sci-Fi Channel, but also to UPN, TNT, and Showtime."
We have the contact information for all those networks on our Help Save Farscape
page. Please remember that the best idea is faxes and letters. Do not flood their phone lines, as we do not want to annoy and frustrate them!
Also remember that Sci Fi do own the exclusive rights to air seasons 1 to 4 of the show (eps 1 through 88), both first run and a number of reruns. Persuading them to sell these rights is a definite uphill task considering how the network hangs on to these things, but it is possible, so let them know that if they have no intention of continuing the show, you'd like to see them sell the rights so another network could.
