Hello World!

For those of you who haven't heard yet, the Sci-Fi Channel has cancelled Farscape. Not only was it a well-written and engaging sci-fi series, but it also showcased some great Australian talent, both on and off-camera.

An extensive list of people to write to in order to help save the show is up at Farscape World. The site has also posted a message from series creator Rockne O'Bannon about who to contact.
