One of Crichton’s habits is to give people nicknames. Especially for Rygel. Crichton has a clear favorite nickname for his Hynerian friend, but there are others. Here are the numbers on Rygel’s nicknames from Crichton, and how frequently Crichton used them. Let me know if I missed any.
Crichton uses “Sparky” the most frequently, but he only first used it 14 episodes in. (“Jeremiah Crichton,” 1.14)
“Fluffy” is the first nickname that Crichton uses for Rygel, in the fourth episode. (Thrown For a Loss,” 1.4) “Li’l camper” is his second, (“Back and Back and Back to the Future,” 1.05) but that one didn’t stick. Then Crichton came up with “Spanky,” (Thank God It’s Friday, Again,” 1.06) His regular use of nicknames for the Dominar did not start until the 16th episode, (“A Human Reaction,” 1.16) after which he used one of Rygel’s nicknames constantly.
Because FarscapeContinues.space believes in fairness and equal time, we invite Rygel the Sixteenth a chance for rebuttal. (Hey, any excuse to use this photo.)
Ain’t Spanky cute?
