Episode Notes
Ricky Manning suggested an alternative title for this episode - "Fetus, Don't Fail Me Now."

At this point in the season, puppeteer Fiona Gentile was in charge of Rygel, so the actors had to get used to a female voice coming from Rygel during filming.

It was post production supervisor Deb Peart's idea to treat the footage of the resurrected Harvey with a scratchy black and white film look.

Originally, the scenes with Harvey's resurrection featured about 150 flickering candles around the set, but once they were lit, the crew started to asphyxiate and the idea had to be abandoned!

In the UK, the BBC would not allow the trilogy title "We're So Screwed," so for the BBC broadcast, each episode was simply known by its subtitle.

The trilogy's title refers to the fight between Crichton and Braca in Season 2's "Look at the Princess" trilogy when Crichton pretends to go mad and screams "We're so screwed!"

Horror film star and techno-thriller author Shane Briant returns to Farscape as Trayso in this episode, after memorably portraying Kaarvok in Season 3's "Eat Me."

Listen carefully to the sounds in the background of the space station. The Sound Department worked very carefully to make it sound like thousands of people lived and worked on board.

Deb Peart suggested that in honor of his resurrection after twelve episodes' absence, this episode should be called "Poison Harvey."

Rygel's vomit was created from lots of gelatin dyed red, pink and blue. According to Fiona Gentile, it completely obliterated the set, and everyone was sliding around trying to get out of the way.
