Will Harris interviews Brian Henson for Bullz-Eye. Here’s an excerpt.
On the idea of “Farscape” having living starships: “That allowed us to go, ‘You know, this is pretty good, because we don’t need populations that know how to work their laser guns and know how to fly through space. We can populate this with characters that are not that intelligent.’ That allowed us to start to develop this very wild tone, where the characters are emotional and unpredictable and sometimes quite stupid, and they do things you don’t expect. It allows the stories to get a lot richer, and it allows the show to get much more passionate and primal and unpredictable than ‘Star Trek.’”
