Encyclopedia > Water (Lexx)

In the television series LEXX, the fictional planet "Water" is the afterlife for all good souls, and the location for much of Season 3. It shares an atmosphere and a tight mutual orbit with Planet Fire, which is the afterlife for all evil souls. Like its counterpart Planet Fire, the souls on Water have no memory of how they arrived there; they simply "woke up" there one day. The nature and names of "Fire" and "Water" may be a nod to Philip José Farmer's Riverworld. A television program is the content of television broadcasting. ...

The planet Water consists almost entirely of water (presumably fresh water, because it is often referred to as being drinkable). It may not even have a solid core; in one episode Kai sinks to the bottom of the ocean of Water, but never reaches a solid floor. Instead, when he reaches the center of the planet he rematerializes on the surface, in the settlement of Gametown. On the way down, Kai passes many souls of the good, presumably sinking through the ocean while waiting for room to reincarnate on the surface of the planet. This article or section is not written in the formal tone expected of an encyclopedia article. ...


The inhabitants of Water live in several large floating settlements, each of which seems to be centered around some particular pastime. During their stay on Water, the crew of the Lexx visit the settlements of Gametown, for those who like sports; Boomtown, for those who like sex; and Garden, for those who like gardening. Life on Water seems to have been meant to be full of unmarred beauty and contentment, but this is shattered by frequent war parties from Fire, which arrive via hot air balloons through the planets' shared atmosphere.

Prince (played by Nigel Bennett) is the cruel ruler of the Planet Fire in the third season of the science fiction television show LEXX. In the fourth season of the same show, he reappears as Isambard Prince, head of the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and secret...

Water is destroyed at the end of Season 3. After Xev commands the Lexx to destroy Fire, Prince is freed from his body. His spirit possesses the Lexx and destroys Water, finally ending the war between Fire and Water.
