OMAHA, NE – Farscape was an ambitious creation for the SyFy Channel. The SyFy Channel was known for just rerunning older scifi material and they wanted make their mark, they wanted to push the envelope and that was what we fans saw in Farscape. The production was quite ambitious as far as production values, special effect, make up, sets, talented actors and crew. Farscape actress Claudia Black remarked that Farscape was probably the most ambitious project Australia had ever seen at that point. Producing the show in Australia saved lots of money and allowed that money to be put into things that you could see directly in the show, the sci-fi sets and makeup, the alien looks, as well as Farscape’s signature puppets from the Henson company.
One of the most ambitious things about Farscape is the writing, and fans of Farscape got to know a loveable show rich in great acting, compelling stories, exquisite plots with some of the most memorable characters, heroes, villians and aliens science fiction every saw on original television programming. Who can forget such wonderful creations as Rygel, D’Argo, Chiana and Zhaan as well as the DRD’s, Moya, and Pilot? Farscape also had a quirky sense of humor. Farscape has been over for a number of years, but it will live on! 😀

Welcome to The Sci-Fi Dominion! This blog will cover a broad genre, science fiction as well as fantasy and horror. It will attempt to keep up with current science fiction in tv and movies while reminiscing on wonderful shows from the past. A few years ago I ran my own website, it was niche search engine for science fiction that had over 1600 websites in its directory, making it the 3rd largest scifi directory in existence at the time. Google was also getting into its groove at the time and my sci-fi directory was ranked #1 in its category. I was very proud of it, but couldn’t keep up with all the work needed to maintain it. It was huge undertaking for something that was supposed to be just a hobby so I had to let it go. I have always wanted to get back into it though and I think this blog will be a nice, workable way of doing that. 😀 Especially with so much going in science fiction right now, the Star Trek reboot, Star Wars is about do another set of movies. I wish this blog had been around for Farscape, Babylon 5 and the re-imagined BattleStar Galactica, too! Well, it will be around for the next big things to come up!!
