Re: Do ships in the Farscape universe have FTL?

What I mean is, if they had a story where someone took over the ship's transporters and were using them to teleport the crew off the ship and we had this;

Captain: Cut the power to the transporters!

Officer: I can't! (Beamed away)

Then it would probably be considered bad writing that they just "can't".

Actually, that would make a good dramatic beat.

Seriously, that's why on TNG, Q episodes are some of the best. He's presented as an omnipotent being who can do whatever he wants, and the viewer just accepts it.

I'm Q, if i snap my fingers, I can create a magic space fence. If I snap my fingers again, I can summon a mariachi band.
