When the scene switches back to the real world, the producer Willie Garson replies that he has "no idea what that is", likely referring to Farscape's relative obscurity.

While there are times when shows are broadcast in a different order than what was intended and they then try to correct many years later for the sake of building up stories and characters, but for continuity, it would seem that the DVD releases are proper as opposed to Netflix.

But unlike Spielberg's Close Encounters where the aliens were gentle and benign and come in peace, the life forms that Crichton encounters are anything but these things. Over the course of the four years of the television series, Crichton faced down a rogues gallery of the most extreme, deadly, scheming, strange creatures the Jim Henson Creature Shop could build.
