This is the infamous chat where the fans heard the bad news for the first time

<DK> I'm also not the most computer literate guy, as Ricky and Ben will tell you, so I beg forgiveness for mistakes. Each and every year, at the end of the season we have a chat with you, our slightly bent cohorts in this wonderful adventure, and we wanted this year to be no different.

<DK> However, despite our best efforts, this year is a bit different from all the rest.

<DK> In the past 24 hours, I have been

<DK> inundated with emails and calls

<DK> regarding rumors that are circulating

<DK> regarding our joint passion.

<DK> Where do we stand?

<DK> We are two days away from shooting the last scenes

<DK> of season 4.

<DK> As you know, Sci Fi has picked us up

<DK> for 4th and 5th seasons.

<DK> However, as with everything done at a

<DK> corporate level,

<DK> there was an out clause built into Sci Fi's

<DK> pickup schedule.

<DK> As of yesterday, we were informed --

<DK> after massive efforts by everyone at Henson

<DK> and working on the show --

<DK> most importantly Brian Henson

<DK> and the 3 gentlemen

<DK> here

<DK> The rumors that everyone has been calling me

<DK> that Sci Fi was not going to exercise it's

<DK> option to pick up the 5th season of Farscape.

<DK> very sadly true.

<DK> Tuesday will be the last time Ben dons the uniform

<DK> of Commander John Crichton.

<DK> We are all hugely sad.

<DK> I am shaking as I write this.

<DK> Yesterday, we all cried on the set.

<DK> Yet, as we are, at the end of the line

<DK> so to speak

<DK> being just the people who make the show

<DK> and not the corporate entities that fund and air it

<DK> we are as helpless as anyone.

<DK> And we are sad

<DK> And we are shattered.

<DK> And we are sorry.

<DK> And we wanted to come online

<DK> and talk to YOU,

<DK> our core fans who have stood

<DK> beside us for such a long and great journey.

<DK> I turn it over to Ricky and Ben for their comments.

<Ben Browder> Ricky?...

<FrooniumRicky> Ben?...

<DK> Alright.

<FrooniumRicky> DK speaks the truth; we are shattered

<Ben Browder> Ok...

<FrooniumRicky> speechless

<DK> I know what they're feeling.

<DK> We all believed

<Ben Browder> I really should have prepared something...

<DK> as late as 36 hours ago,

<DK> that we were going to 5th season.

<DK> But Sci Fi has not picked us up,

5th season.

<DK> so, as all the rumors have suggested,

<DK> we have no way to make the show.

<DK> Believe me, Brian and everyone involved

<DK> have gone LITERALLY to the ends of the earth

<DK> to make this happen,

<DK> but there does not seem to be a way around this moat

DK> placed before us.

<DK> Ben, Ricky - should we just have the Moderator start

<DK> filtering through questions?

<FrooniumRicky> I wish we had answers, but... sure

<Barbarella> Well I'm gonna type this up with no name since many people are asking this....Are there any plans of trying to go to other networks? And Is there anything the fans themselves can do to try to keep Farscape on the air?

<Ben Browder> Yep

<DK> At the moment, the whole deal hinges on what to do with the

<DK> first 88 eps.

<DK> Perhaps a network would be interested in running

<DK> a 5th and 6th year of Farscape --

<DK> and you should know

<DK> we have the 5th season already plotted out –

<DK> however, without the right to air the first 88

eps, they'd be hard pressed to provide financing and see no return

<DK> for years because Sci Fi has the rights to the first 88.

<DK> What can you do? I think, just what fans everywhere have

<DK> always been able to do.

<DK> Support the show.

<DK> Watch it.

<DK> When all else fails,

<DK> let everyone know how you feel.

<FrooniumRicky> ga

<DK> Let's go.

<Barbarella> And another no name question everyone is curious is there plans for a Farscape movie possibly?...often its been hinted at and they'd love to see one

<DK> Rock and I talked about it this morning.

<DK> Despite this setback,

<DK> we still have plans to finish the script.

<DK> As you can imagine,

<DK> we're all out of work on Wednesday,

<DK> and no one is eager to let this go yet.

<DK> It all happened

<DK> and no one is eager to let this go yet.

<DK> It all happened

<DK> too suddenly.

<DK> Ricky, Ben, myself

<DK> and everyone

<DK> is still in a state of shock.

<DK> Ben and must've talked on the phone 10-12 time since yesterday morning,

<DK> and we still can't absorb/believe it.

<DK> Hang on a second--

<DK> I just saw someone log on as Bonnie Hammer must die.

bonniehammermustdie has left #farscape

<DK> You should be ashamed of yourself and change that

<DK> nick instantly.

<DK> That kind of reaction

<DK> without knowing who and how it went

<DK> down is totally wrong.

<Barbarella> yes please guys do try to keep the anger to a minimum since we don't know the whole story

<DK> You are attacking the wrong people.

<DK> I am the most savaged and angry person about this you know.

<DK> Brian started on this project with Rockne in 1993.

<DK> I was brought in in 1994.

<DK> It has been essentially my life since then.

<DK> If I am not angry at Bonnie, then you have no right to be.

To answer the log on--

<DK> Bonnie is the President of Sci Fi,

<DK> and has always been a fan of Farscape.

<DK> Question?

<Barbarella> *n107* Will you have time to make season 4 wrap up all the plots? If not how many letters will it take to force Sci Fi to do the right thing for once in their history and keep the show running?

DK> We got a 1.5 rating

<DK> for Unrealized Reality.

<DK> If every one of those people wrote a letter,

<DK> we might end up filming season 9.

<DK> Q?

<Ben Browder> The story is not finished... n107

<Ben Browder> We found out after shooting 422

<FrooniumRicky> And we mistakenly left a few people alive at the end of 422

<FrooniumRicky> Who knew?

*Mukaikubo* "For DK: When the final episode- I can't believe I said that- airs, will you let us know what The Master Plan for Season V was?"

<DK> Sure.

<DK> If there is no way for Farscape to continue,

<DK> we'll get the story out somehow.

<DK> Perhaps

<FrooniumRicky> Mime, perhaps

<DK> 2 unemployed writers and one unemployed

<Ben Browder> we should write a book

<DK> actor/writer will

<DK> write you something.

<FrooniumRicky> Hey, we can act it out on street corners

<DK> Q?

<Barbarella> *SciFiChick66* when it was decided that Crais and Talyn would "die", did you know yet that the show would be renewed for 2 more seasons? Now that it has, will you bring them back and/or resolve the dangling plotlines concerning their characters? For instance, what did Stark "know" about them that was important enough for Crais to threaten Stark w/ a knife?

TrueBlueZhaanFhaan has joined #Farscape

<FrooniumRicky> with an open laptop case for people to throw coins into

<Ben Browder> LOL

<FrooniumRicky> dangling?

<DK> That last question

<DK> Oops,

<DK> operator error

<Barbarella> you want a repeat?

<DK> Question seems to have missed the point.

Guest5 has joined #Farscape

<DK> We have been cancelled.

<Barbarella> ahhh

<Barbarella> yes

<DK> There are no more Farscape's planned.

<DK> We can't resolve anything beyond what we've done for season 4.

<Barbarella> well a statement I am getting lots of people expressing their sadness for the loss of the show as well as their admiration of the job you guys have done and I also feel that way

<FrooniumRicky> Quit leaving; we're hoping to hit 400 people

<Barbarella> many wished you guys to know that

<FrooniumRicky> We appreciate it

FrooniumRicky> Farscape fans are the best

<FrooniumRicky> The looniest, but the best

<Ben Browder> Just wanted you guys to hear it from us

Ben Browder> Just wanted you guys to hear it from us

<Ben Browder> the shock and sadness here in Australia is profound

<FrooniumRicky> As you can imagine, it wasn't a happy set on Friday

<FrooniumRicky> This is a family

en Browder> half of my phone calls in the last day have ended in tears

<FrooniumRicky> especially after four years

<Barbarella> Many people are also asking do you have plans for spin off series or totally new and unique ideas for a new series?

<DK> If there are no more questions, then we should leave everyone to absorb the sad news that way that we are having to do so.

<FrooniumRicky> Certainly the most fun I've ever had on a series

<Ben Browder> And the Fans... you guys in particular

K> Ben's point is exactly why we're here.

<DK> We've always been close to the fans.

<Barbarella> also they'd like an address to write to to try to Save Farscape

<FrooniumRicky> We have ideas and stuff, sure, but right now we're still dealing with grief and shock

<DK> Even from 8000 miles away, in many cases.

<FrooniumRicky> This was our baby

<Ben Browder> and yours

<DK> We just wanted to set the rumor mill straight and make

<DK> sure everyone knew the truth so they could deal with it.

<Ben Browder> damn... this sucks

<Ben Browder> I feel like a cop at the door

<Ben Browder> 24 hours after hearing it... it's no easier

<DK> I shudder to think what is going to happen when this is opened up to all deserving voices.

<Barbarella> yes it does truelly....I must say the show was one of the few I watched in particular...and actually followed...and I really am saddened by all this as are all of the scapers

<DK> Did someone ask for an address?

<Barbarella> yes a name and address to write to

<Barbarella> to try to save Farscape

<DK> I would simply say, call and/or lookup

Crimson has quit IRC ((signed off))

<DK> Sci Fi in NY.

<DK> In this case, speed is our friend.

<DK> Believe it or not, the sets are scheduled to be torn

<DK> down forever at the end of next week.

en Browder> david means... if you want to do something...

<DK> I used to work at CBS for

<DK> over 10 years, and I know that

<Ben Browder> do it before they take the chainsaws to moya

<DK> calls and telegrams always used to get our attention.

<Barbarella> I think that can be arranged

<FrooniumRicky> did emails?  I always heard real letters were much more effective than emails

<DK> Volume and speed.  Disappointment is better than anger.

<DK> Remember that furious people

<DK> are "nuts."

 <DK> Angry, but civil and controlled

<DK> people are "fans."

<DK> Networks listen to "fans."

<FrooniumRicky> no misspellings, no obscenities

Ben Browder> correct grammer??? Cain't do that.

<DK> Cain't is southern, I believe.

<Barbarella> and your point?

<Ben Browder> correctly spelled

Barbarella smiles a wide Texan grin

<Ben Browder> be civilized

<Ben Browder> and free refills on tea

<DK> No point.  I didn't view it as a mispelling.

<FrooniumRicky> civiliZed, you Aussie

<DK> I make up words, as Ricky will tell you.

<DK> How did words get made up in the first place?  :-)

<Barbarella> grunts and growls

<Barbarella> only make it so far

<Ben Browder> Hey folks... we're really sorry...

<DK> Spread the word.  Have a wake.

DK> Watch Farscape.

<FrooniumRicky> Have a bee-ah.

<Barbarella> ok you guys ready to unmoderate?...or do you have anything else you want to say? or statements you'd like to make?

<DK> I will tell you something interesting—

<DK> The last half of season 4

<Barbarella> I think most in here have the DVD's

<DK> has tons of material that we have

<Ben Browder> RICKY!

<DK>  shot that won't make it on the air.

shot that won't make it on the air.

<FrooniumRicky> BEN!

<DK> Way to many scenes.

<DK> Gonna be a DVD fest, folks.

<Ben Browder> I'd like to say something

FrooniumRicky runs to Ben in slow motion

<Ben Browder> ...

<Ben Browder> You guys... get it

<Ben Browder> you get the show and what we do

DK would like to nod his head in extreme gratitude to the fans, and then step back. Thank you all so much. See you on the next series.

<Ben Browder> Who'd have ever thought we'd be here...

<Ben Browder> Not me.

<Ben Browder> And

<Ben Browder> I will forever be grateful.

<Ben Browder> Thak you guys

<Barbarella> and we won it as far as I can see....although I must say...I am a little upset by some of your behavior while it was goin on...all that cussing and insulting is not the way Scapers do things...so next time

<Barbarella> if there is a next time

<Barbarella> please remain calm and intelligent arguement

<Barbarella> but....

<Barbarella> I am so proud of you as well

<Barbarella> you guys stood behind me while that was going on and I can not tell you how much I appreciated it

<DK> Yes,  Sci-Fi had no idea it would be like this

<Ben Browder> Hell... we didn't know it would be like this

<Barbarella> believe me I had a suspicion

<Ben Browder> Is SCIFI treating you guys okay?

<Ben Browder> Is the BB working again yet?

<Ben Browder> Some of the cast and crew would like to express their appreciation for  you support<

<Ben Browder> Hopefully there will be an outlet for that soon.

<DK> We are very proud of all the fans and the had decication you have put forward.

<Ben Browder> And for being well mannered

<Ben Browder> it does make a difference

<Barbarella> thank you I have really pushed manners here in this campaign

<Ben Browder> it makes it much harder to ignore you all

<DK> So Ben,  Did you want to start off the Chat?

<Ben Browder> Sup to you man...

<Ben Browder> I can't stay that long

<Ben Browder> But... rather that riffing in the wind

<Ben Browder> oh... one more lesson in geekdom for me today

  <Ben Browder> oh... one more lesson in geekdom for me today

<Foolsworld> Why is it that when something good comes along, somebody always has to take it away? I mean, this is stupid and idiotic. Farscape is by far the greatest show of all time.

*** Barbarella sets mode: +o DK

<Barbarella> you have the floor

<DK> Hey Guys.

<DK> Thought I'd check in.

<DK> Ben called this morning to say someone was in here blabbing

<DK> about this and that.  Wasn't me.  I was at the chiropractor, trying to unkink from the wrap party last night

<DK> Anyway.  Point is--

<DK> and you may be highly interested in both.

<DK> 1) When someone purports to be

<DK> me or Ben, there is a way to check.

<DK> Barb and I have a secret password.

<DK> She PMs the guy nicked as "DK"

<DK> If he has the password

<Barbarella> OH ya put me in the hot seat...that's ok

<Barbarella> :)

<DK> He's me.

<DK> If he doesn't

<DK> She'll let you know.

<DK> Anyone in the whole wide world can log

<DK> on as me and say things that aren't true.

<DK> Don't believe it.

<DK> This IS me.  I can tell you a few things.

<DK> Ben and Claudia and Lil and Andrew and Deb and Baba and I ended the

<DK> wrap party in my office and talked and cried the night away.

<DK> I got home very late/early

<DK> and my phone was ringing.

<DK> and my phone was ringing.

<DK> The pressure you incredible people are applying

<DK> through civil and concerned means

<DK> is

<DK> unbelievably as you may find it

<DK> actually having an effect.

<DK> There are no promises.

<DK> There is no anything.

<DK> But people who were once not talking

<DK> are now talking again.

<DK> are now talking again.

<DK> My phone rings.

<DK> There is calm and there is conversation.

<DK> While people are decent and sensible

<DK> and interacting in a positive and productive

<DK> way, things ALWAYS have a chance to get done.

<DK> I am the most optimistic person you've

<DK> ever heard about.  It's what I do.

<DK> I am hopeful.

<DK> I am seriously hopeful.

<DK> It is because of you.

<DK> But it is nowhere near being done.

<DK> That said,

<DK> I am hopeful.

<DK> Now....

<DK> What to do?

<Barbarella> have you seen the operation big push email?

<DK> First -- do not listen to DK this and DK that.

<Barbarella> I put together for this campaign?

<DK> If Barb hasn't given him protective status

<DK> he ain't me.

<DK> Once again,

<DK> this IS me.

<DK> I am hopeful.

<DK> Frankly, I'm so thrilled

<DK> by all of your support.

<DK> It's all the cast and crew

<DK> talked about

<DK> on a difficult last day.

<DK> I read Matt Roush's

<DK> fabulous on-line obit for us

<DK> fabulous on-line obit for us

<DK> everyone on wrap.

<DK> We all cried.

<DK> 200 plus people.  I swear to you.  We ALL cried.

<DK> Together.

<DK> You fans are great.

<DK> Keep it up.

<DK> Keep it up.

<DK> Keep letting the world know you want to see

<DK> more Farscape.

<DK> It's like pre-booking

<DK> your seat at a movie.

<DK> If they know you will watch

<DK> they will make the product for you.

 Keep letting the world know you want to see

<DK> more Farscape.

<DK> It's like pre-booking

<DK> your seat at a movie.

<DK> If they know you will watch

<DK> they will make the product for you.

<DK> "Hope" is a word

<DK> you will find in all of my scripts.

<DK> I give it to Crichton whenever I can.

<DK> I always have hope.

<DK> Yesterday I had less hope.

<DK> Today I had more.

<DK> You get the idea.

<DK> Specifics don't matter.

<DK> We're taking a breather today.

<DK> Nothing to write for Farscape for the first time

<DK> since Oct 17, 1997.

<DK> First night I went to be without a story or an arc

<DK> or a new character in my head.

<DK> A peaceful night's sleep.


<DK> Keep it up.

<DK> I'll get back to you

<DK> HERE, in this room

<DK> with Barb,

<DK> If and when things progress or die down.

<DK> In the meantime

<DK> Please understand how important you are to us.

<DK> Spread the word that calm

<DK> reasoned

<DK> rational


<DK> expressions

<DK> of dismay are appropriate.

<DK> They are helpful.

<DK> They work.

<DK> I'm done, Barb.

<DK> Just wanted to set the

<Barbarella> kewl you want me to open the floor?

<DK> record straight re: the imposter today.

<Barbarella> and yes its important to remember we need to act like scapers no matter what the circumstances are...especially when dealing with scifi

<Barbarella> especially after today

<Barbarella> ok guys I'm gonna open the floor
