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

Pilot photo
Pilot is a member of a race known to viewers simply as Pilots or "Surfacers". He is introduced in the "Premiere" and plays a significant role in the resolution of The Peacekeeper Wars. Pilot was one of two regular animatronic puppet characters in Farscape. He is operated by Sean Masterson, Tim Mieville, Matt McCoy, Mario Halouvas and Fiona Gentle. His voice is provided by Lani Tupu (who also plays the character Captain Bialar Crais on Farscape).

Moya's pilot is only known by his species' name, which also doubles as a description of his role on the ship. His real name, if he has one, is unknown. Pilots bond with organic Leviathan spacecraft and become their navigator, companion, and liaison to passengers. Once bonded, Pilots can survive only a brief period of time of separation from their Leviathans, and only when travelling in something made of a Leviathan's components (as in a transport pod). Pilot is the second Pilot that Moya has had. Pilot was initially artificially bonded, which caused him great pain until, during the series, he was separated from Moya out of grief for his involvement in the death of the first Pilot. After he came to terms with it, Pilot and Moya began a long and difficult natural bonding process.
