Trivia

This episode is a special tribute to Steven Spielberg's blockbuster ET, only this time the roles are reversed: Crichton who is a human is now an alien stranded on the unknown planet where the indigenous child with his mother become his new best friends. See more »

Goofs

While Crichton should be able to understand the unnamed inhabitants of the planet well enough because of the translator microbes, they do not have them and so should not understand Crichton. See more »

Hey for those new to the series, the science fiction channel whom aired Farscape accidentally released this episode IN THE WRONG ORDER. It is in fact supposed to be the second episode!! I, E.T. makes a lot more sense there, doesn't it? :)
