Self Inflicted Wounds Part One:
Could'A, Should'A, Would'A

A collision with a strange craft causes conflict on Moya.

StarkWritten by David Kemper
Directed by Tony Tilse

The gang are being very calm about the alien ship in their hold but that’s just adding to the tension around the alien ship that’s punctured its way through Moya.

This was easily the best of the season’s three episodes so far and possibly because it’s an early return to the multi-part story that has worked well before. Sometimes Farscape’s single-episode stories can be rushed and the series is good at creating cliffhangers.

Stark is proving to be a problem of his own, though, as his scenes jar with the rest of the show: he’s so melodramatically ponderous that it slows the show down.

But forget him, Zhaan, Moya and the rest, why did Crichton see the Three Stooges through the wormhole? Is that telling him this is a way home or that the alien device is a DVD player?
