From the cover:

American astronaut John Crichton is having a bad day... He's suddenly at the other end of the universe. A complete stranger has a personal vendetta against him. His new best friends are escaped alien convicts. Things can't get much worse -- right? Wrong...

With its amazing cast of characters, dazzling scripts, state-of-the-art CGI and cutting-edge special effects from the Academy Award-winning team at the Jim Henson Creature Shop, Farscape is simply the hottest new sci-fi show around.

Farscape: The Illustrated Companion is the only fully authorised guide to the series, packed with exclusive cast and crew interviews, photos and design art, an in-depth look at the special effects wizardry of the Creature Shop and a comprehensive season one episode guide.

Comments from Author/Publisher

From Paul Simpson:

"David Hughes and I were approached for the first book on Valentine's Day, 2000 with a view to delivery very soon afterwards. With the exception of Rockne S. O'Bannon and David Kemper, who I interviewed in Los Angeles, everything else was done by phone."
