That’s right – Syfy’s highly anticipated new show has a trailer and I have it right here for ya! Check it out!
Defiance is a science fiction TV show which is being developed by Farscape creator Rockne S. O’Bannon.
The show is set in the near future where Aliens known as the Votans come to Earth seeking refuge after their home star system is destroyed. Naturally, when they arrive they are not welcomed by Humans with open arms. Instead, they orbit Earth for 6 years whilst negotiating with Earth Governments for settlement on our planet, but when supplies on their ships run low, they turn to war out of desperation to try to force the issue.
During the war, Votan ships containing terraforming techonology are shot down and change the planets surface so that it’s dangerous to both Humans and aliens alike.
After decades of fighting, both sides are exhausted by war and a ceasefire was declared, leaving a war torn planet and highly factionalised governments. On both sides, militia’s joined together realising they were stronger together than apart.
The series picks up at this point and revolves around the main character Jeb Nolan who returns to his home town of St Louis to find a refugee camp called “Defiance”. He quickly becomes the camp’s lawman and strives to protect the camp from clashes between humans and aliens, military scavengers and other threats.
Sounds cool, right?
I loved Farscape. It is my all time favourite sci-fi show and knowing this show isn’t that and won’t be similar to that, I’m still excited to see what this show will entail.
Interested? Check out the trailer below!
The show is set to premiere on the Syfy channel on April 15th.
