Zhaan: Hear me! I could rip you apart. Kahalaan help me, I’d enjoy it. But you know why I don’t? Because we’re not enemies.

Zotoh Zhaan (Virginia Hey) - Farscape


Zhaan is a priest, a beacon of peace and control in a chaotic environment. She is also guilty of the crime for which she was imprisoned - she is a murderer, and formerly, an anarchist. Her religious reformation is a means of personal redemption, that she might honour the gift of life by ministering the souls of others. She is gentle and patient and ineffably good, and yet just beyond the veil lies an immense, terrifying capacity for cold, dark violence, executed with body and mind. Zhaan is painfully aware of how easily she might slip back into old ways, and how difficult it is to climb back out of that place, and she is determined to stay her right path. She claims a responsibility for Moya and her crew, as their mother, healer, confidante and conscience, and finds her own fulfillment in the selfless service of her Goddess.

And just LOOK. AT. HER. She’s so incredibly beautiful it makes my heart ache. That is an amazing make up achievement, right there. Whoever decided that what this show needed was a sensual, statuesque, hairless blue woman deserves a hug (or perhaps some unity…)

stephen hawking is a genius alright, but john is… more toward that end of the spectrum than the rest of us.


Zhaan: For me, you must remain here and minister these souls. I am relying on it.

Stark: But I love you.

Zhaan: If I did not feel the same and more, could I ask this sacrifice of you?

Stark and Zhaan - Farscape


I did impose a ‘one entry per show for each category’ rule when putting together this meme, but I couldn’t possibly write about Braca and Braca/Scorpy without ever talking Stark or Stark/Zhaan. That’s like blasphemy or something, that is. 

What I really, really love about Stark/Zhaan is that there’s no pretense, no set up, no slow lead-in. They just kinda know. They just click. In the first episode in which they interact onscreen, Zhaan is ecstatic over Stark’s presence, he trusts her judgment above all others, and the two share unity so powerful they can sense the space-time continuum. Clearly, they get along like a house on fire (or a ship deliberately set alight…ahem). They are both spiritual beings, after all - Zhaan, more directly religious, while Stark is a semi-incorporeal conveyor of souls bridging planes of existence. Both possess immense mental abilities, and a great capacity for darkness. Zhaan is the only character on the entire show who understands Stark’s suffering and actively helps him to find equilibrium and control, while Stark dotes on her in turn and helps carry her emotional burdens, the balm for her tired soul that she has been for everyone else. They are also both very touchy-feely characters, independently, and consequently, together, they can hardly keep their hands off each other. Which is lovely and deeply gratifying for the adoring audience. The two never share a single kiss on the lips, but the image of Zhaan reclining in Stark’s arms, he caressing her scalp, she stroking his neck, free hands clasped together…it’s worth a thousand lip-locks. Excuse me while I cry.

Miklo Braca (David Franklin) - Farscape


“We used to call him sometimes ‘The Reaction Machine’. You could play the whole scene on David’s face and understand perfectly what was going on.”

“David had complete control over the muscles and could convey emotion with the twitch of an eyebrow.”

- Andrew Prowse and David Kemper, audio commentary for Mind the Baby (2.01)

Prowse and Kemper’s praise for David Franklin’s performance should not be considered hyperbolic - it was by virtue of that magnificent face that he parlayed his way from a three episode arc into a recurring role, after all. Braca is in many ways the 'consummate Peacekeeper’ he is accused of being: a perfect soldier, filled with single-minded hostility and ruthless ambition, rigid and judgmental and coldly emotionless. But as hard as Peacekeepers try to repress their feelings and violently shame one another for expressing them, the emotions are there just the same, and Braca is full-to-bursting with them, even if he resolutely denies showing it and absolutely refuses to speak it aloud. He maintains outward composure even as minute changes in expression, bearing, and tone betray an immense range of feeling down to the last detail, and it is fascinating to watch (I’ve giffed some of the more expressive examples, and one should never doubt the ability of an aforementioned eyebrow twitch to speak volumes in context, volumes God it hurts my soul!). 

Braca as he first appears is, yes, that consummate Peacekeeper, serving, advancing, parroting the same vicious bigotry as those around him and shunning the evils of personal thought. But then, Scorpius occurs: someone whose very existence is considered abhorrent to Peacekeepers even as his position within the hierarchy demands their respect, a representation of everything Braca’s heavily ingrained Peacekeeper indoctrination has taught him to hate. Braca is both horrified and enchanted by the enigma of Scorpius, and over time, his sycophantic praise is traded for genuine admiration, his dutiful service becomes loyal devotion, and his discomfort and disgust melts away as Scorpius encourages him to betray his Peacekeeper teachings in the most insidious of ways: by asking questions, making critical judgments, and self-actualising. While all the other regular Peacekeeper characters who go through the process of individualisation had to do so by leaving Peacekeeper service behind, Braca is able to remain, successfully integrating self-discovery with the positive idealism of Peacekeepers and letting go of the narrow-minded hatefulness so prevalent among his peers. He is still a proud Peacekeeper, but he is also self-aware and capable of choosing his allegiances beyond what service dictates. Concurrently he is able to navigate and thrive in the political quagmire around him, to press his ambition and play his cards in a manner that an unquestioning Peacekeeper grunt could not. His journey is suitably understated and largely unspoken - but it’s all there beneath the stoically controlled surface, if you care to look. Volumes, I say.
