Farscape Fans Protest

Fans of the SCI FI Channel's original series Farscape have organized rapidly to protest the network's decision not to renew the series for a fifth season. In addition to a number of online petitions, fans—some of whom call themselves "Scapers"—have created Web sites devoted to the "Save Farscape" campaign and inundated SCI FI offices with e-mails, faxes and telephone calls. Fans of Farscape star Ben Browder started collecting money to take out a $2,000 ad in Variety, the Hollywood trade paper, in support of the show.

Some fans have taken to sending in boxes of crackers or empty cracker boxes as part of a campaign strategy, with the slogan "Crackers DO Matter," a reference to an episode entitled "Crackers Don't Matter." The strategy is borrowed from that employed by fans of Roswell, who swamped the offices of The WB and, later, UPN with tiny bottles of Tabasco sauce in an effort to get that show renewed. (The ploy had mixed success.) A planned Sept. 9 protest in front of SCI FI's New York offices was rescheduled for Sept. 12.

The remaining new episodes of Farscape's fourth season will return, beginning January 2003.
