Won’t Get Fooled Again

FarscapeCrichton wakes up in a hospital with his father by his side, telling him that the Farscape One mission was aborted when the energy wave hit the module and Crichton crash-landed before blacking out. Convinced that the wormhole aliens have placed him into another illusion, Crichton rebels, trying to catch them once again in a misplaced detail. He has no luck, and he soon encounters his crewmates from Moya, with their usual alien appearance, claiming to be regular humans; Aeryn is a nurse, Rygel an administrator, D’Argo another astronaut, Zhaan a therapist, Crais a cop, and Scorpius the members of a bar band. The situations in which Crichton meets these doppelgangers become increasingly surreal, as Crichton begins to wonder how anyone thinks he’ll be fooled by any of it. Another Scorpius shows up to explain that fooling him is not the goal; Crichton has been captured by Scarrans, who are trying to drive him mad as an interrogation technique. What the Scarrans and Crichton didn’t know is that Scorpius has implanted a neural clone of himself in Crichton’s brain, to discover the wormhole secrets that the aliens placed there. But first, the Scorpius clone has to get Crichton out of danger, or both of them will perish.

Notes: The Farscape One mission is how Crichton got blasted to the Uncharted Territories in Premiere. The wormhole aliens fooled Crichton into thinking he had returned home in A Human Reaction. Scorpius placed the neural clone in Crichton while interrogating him in the Nerve/Hidden Memory two-parter.
