Five years ago, astronaut John Crichton attempted to use the Earth's atmosphere to propel his ship, Farscape 1, at great speeds across the solar system. He was sucked down a wormhole to a distant part of the galaxy and into the middle of a battle. He was rescued by a group of escaping prisoners and taken aboard their ship, a living ship.

Character Bio

Ka D'Argo photo
Ka D'Argo (called simply D'Argo), played by Anthony Simcoe, is a Luxan warrior who was imprisoned aboard the Leviathan Moya by the Peacekeepers after being convicted (falsely) of killing his Sebacean wife Lo'Laan in a fit of Luxan Hyper-Rage. During his time as a prisoner, the Peacekeepers shackled D'Argo in his cell with heavy chains attached to a pair of metal hooks surgically implanted around his collar bones to keep the powerful Luxan under control. He later escaped (along with Rygel and Zhaan). As a Luxan warrior, D'Argo carries a weapon known as a Qualta Blade, a heavy broadsword that can transform into a Qualta Rifle. Though he is initially ill-tempered and distrustful during the early episodes of the show, he is later elected Captain of Moya by the crew. He also has a powerful tongue that he can shoot out at a high velocity, similar to that of a frog or chameleon. The tip can inject an "adaptive" venom which renders the target unconscious without killing them.

Throughout the first half of the series, finding the son he had with Lo'Laan, Jothee, was D'Argo's consuming desire. After Jothee was found, his plans to settle down with his son and Chiana scared the Nebari girl, resulting in her betraying him. D'Argo and Jothee part in bad terms "Suns and Lovers", but they are later reunited and somewhat reconciled in the miniseries. After being mortally wounded in The Peacekeeper Wars, D'Argo covers the escape of his comrades off of Qujaga, which was then destroyed by Crichton's wormhole weapon. John Crichton and Aeryn Sun then name their son, born during the battle, D'Argo, in his memory.

The character made appearances in other mediums. In Horizons, a story by creator Rockne S O'Bannon that takes place far in the future, and that was written before Peacekeeper War, D'Argo is still alive. However, he did lose his arm, which is now a clear prosthetic. D'Argo was also parodied by the character Teal'c in the Stargate SG-1 episode "200."
