Production

In the fourth and final season of 24 episodes, debuting in the USA on July 13, 2001 on the American Sci-Fi Channel, the Lexx arrives at Earth in the early 21st century, only to find that Prince, now named Isambard Prince, and somehow head of the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms), which more or less runs the United States and several other old adversaries have also arrived there. Between them, Prince and the Lexx manage to demolish large chunks of the Earth Orlando, Florida; Ottawa (a Canadian metonymical in-joke);Tokyo, the Amazon Rainforest, and Holland, which the Lexx eats — before the climactic final episode, televised on 26 April 2002.
The "Lexx" is responsible for the destruction of Fire, Water, Pluto, Mars, Venus, and lastly Earth. Also, Priest, the President of the United States, manages to destroy Cuba, Newfoundland, and Vietnam via thermonuclear bombs. (Salter Street Films. LEXX Season IV - Synopsis)

Short Summary: Dr Longbore selects his crew of schoolgirls to go onto Noah with him. But just before he boards, Priest and Bunny take his ride, and he is fried during blastoff. Out of spite, Longbore has left a Higgs boson accelerator to destroy everything. The aliens start tearing into Earth using moon-sized tentacled asteroids. Kai starts towing the accelerator to use it against the aliens, but after Xev, Stan and he leave Earth, 790 destroys it using senile Lexx. Prince grants Kai his mortality, as he tows the accelerator into the main alien asteroid, and collapses it. Kai crashes into the core in almost a shot for shot duplicate of the first time he died and laughs from the irony as the accelerator's Higgs Boson value is determined as 131313... and explodes. Prince appears on the Noah, rejoicing, with Priest kissing his hand in submission. Lexx disintegrates due to extreme old age, and spawns a baby Lexx. Stan and Xev enter the new Lexx, and Stan becomes the new captain. Stan dubs the new Lexx as "Little Lexx", and orders him to find them all a new home. Little Lexx sucks up a floating 790, as they fly away into the unknown galaxy.
