2015 Publishing Retrospective: Talyn’s Heroic Journey in Farscape

The second essay I published on Kindle in 2015 was Talyn’s Heroic Journey in Farscape. It was at that point that I decided to have simple covers in the same style for all those essays to be released independently in digital format.

Created in 1999 by Rockne S. O’Bannon, the Science Fiction television series Farscape focuses on the eclectic crew of a living ship called Moya. One of the supporting characters, Talyn, is Moya’s hybrid offspring, is born at the end of the first season and also experiences his own heroic journey.

Since the show belongs to the Science Fiction genre, it is interesting to study how a non-human character that isn’t even humanoid might become a hero. While cyborg and alien heroes have existed in Science Fiction narratives of many kinds, it remains rather rare that a space ship, even alive and sentient, is given significant character development.

Three elements are of particular significance in the analysis of hybrid’s heroic journey: Talyn’s origins and likeness to a Chosen One character type, his two mentor figures – Aeryn Sun and Bialar Crais, and the darker times Talyn faces before finding redemption upon his death.

The essay is available on Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, Amazon Australia. It also has its Goodreads page.
