Farscape (1999 - 2003)

Farscape was an Australian-produced science fiction television series that follows American astronaut John Crichton and the crew of the prison starship Moya as they explored new worlds throughout the galaxy while on the run from the Peacekeeper authorities. The series only ran for four seasons from 1999-2003. After the show was canceled, a fan campaign to save the show became the biggest fan campaign to date and spawned a miniseries which concluded the plot of the original series. While the crew mostly used futuristic "phaser" weapons, they did visit Earth and the producers used real firearms in several episodes.

The following weapons were used in the television series Farscape:


Desert Eagle Mark I

Cobb (Richard Sydenham) has a Desert Eagle Mark I with a two tone finish as his personal sidearm in Ep. 1.16 "A Human Reaction".
