OMG THEY CHOPPED PILOTS ARM OFF!
That moment really says a lot about the show to me. Even one of the show's most stable characters, Zhaan, goes right for the arm and is obsessed about the data for the rest of the episode. When the chips are down, this is basically a motley group of ex-cons who are united mostly by having a common nemesis, a broadly similar goal, and the conveinence of hanging out on a spaceborne leviathan as opposed to trying to eek it out on one of the worlds they encounter in Uncharted Territories.

That is, it can be a pretty fragile social compact when you come down to it, and coming down to it can include severing the arm of the sweetest and most selfless character on the entire show.

I guess I am focusing on in all the oddball kink in Farscape,
Trust me, that is the right attitude to have. If the devil is in the details, then Farscape is lost in its oddball kinkery.

Also I must add that Crichton has to be the MOST unique SF hero ever.
I've grown to love Crichton terribly, and it's hard not to, really.
