Braca: Sir…permission to speak freely?

Scorpius: Of course Lieutenant, if you were not free to, I would not have you here.

Braca: …If you suspected the Captain might not return of his own volition, why did you let him go?

Scorpius: We all have windows of usefulness. If we don’t take advantage of them, our careers may fade. For example, my instincts tell me that your career may well be on the rise.

Miklo Braca (David Franklin) - Farscape

.

"We used to call him sometimes ‘The Reaction Machine’. You could play the whole scene on David’s face and understand perfectly what was going on."

"David had complete control over the muscles and could convey emotion with the twitch of an eyebrow."

- Andrew Prowse and David Kemper, audio commentary for Mind the Baby (2.01)

Prowse and Kemper’s praise for David Franklin’s performance should not be considered hyperbolic - it was by virtue of that magnificent face that he parlayed his way from a three episode arc into a recurring role, after all. Braca is in many ways the ‘consummate Peacekeeper’ he is accused of being: a perfect soldier, filled with single-minded hostility and ruthless ambition, rigid and judgmental and coldly emotionless. But as hard as Peacekeepers try to repress their feelings and violently shame one another for expressing them, the emotions are there just the same, and Braca is full-to-bursting with them, even if he resolutely denies showing it and absolutely refuses to speak it aloud. He maintains outward composure even as minute changes in expression, bearing, and tone betray an immense range of feeling down to the last detail, and it is fascinating to watch (I’ve giffed some of the more expressive examples, and one should never doubt the ability of an aforementioned eyebrow twitch to speak volumes in context, volumes God it hurts my soul!). 

Braca as he first appears is, yes, that consummate Peacekeeper, serving, advancing, parroting the same vicious bigotry as those around him and shunning the evils of personal thought. But then, Scorpius occurs: someone whose very existence is considered abhorrent to Peacekeepers even as his position within the hierarchy demands their respect, a representation of everything Braca’s heavily ingrained Peacekeeper indoctrination has taught him to hate. Braca is both horrified and enchanted by the enigma of Scorpius, and over time, his sycophantic praise is traded for genuine admiration, his dutiful service becomes loyal devotion, and his discomfort and disgust melts away as Scorpius encourages him to betray his Peacekeeper teachings in the most insidious of ways: by asking questions, making critical judgments, and self-actualising. While all the other regular Peacekeeper characters who go through the process of individualisation had to do so by leaving Peacekeeper service behind, Braca is able to remain, successfully integrating self-discovery with the positive idealism of Peacekeepers and letting go of the narrow-minded hatefulness so prevalent among his peers. He is still a proud Peacekeeper, but he is also self-aware and capable of choosing his allegiances beyond what service dictates. Concurrently he is able to navigate and thrive in the political quagmire around him, to press his ambition and play his cards in a manner that an unquestioning Peacekeeper grunt could not. His journey is suitably understated and largely unspoken - but it’s all there beneath the stoically controlled surface, if you care to look. Volumes, I say. 

I have decided to rename Farscape

whitlockienterprisespresents:

'Meeklo Braca Makes Questionable Life Choices'

and assign more appropriate titles to all Braca episodes.

Because clearly he’s the unsung hero of the whole show. C’mon.

I don’t regret this even a little bit.
