Watch first 14 mins of new Sci-Fi Show Defiance

Defiance-season-1-2013-Syfy-poster

An awesome new science fiction show by the name of Defiance is almost ready air – watch the first 14 minutes right here!

The new show is set to air on the Syfy channel starting on 15th April and comes from the same creator as my favourite sci-fi show of all time: Farscape.

I previously revealed back in January the show will be about:

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? Want to watch the first 14 minutes of the first episode? Check it out below!

    The show’s production quality is beautiful and the plot is very Eureka in a good way. Overall, I think as long as the plots are tight and rich like many of the other good show on TV this will be a staple for me. I’ll be there for the premiere,(DVR me) because this looks like real fun.

    Sounds like a show about intolerance, racism, war, mass-murder, and other values held high in American society.

    > Naturally, when they arrive they are not welcomed by Humans with open arms.

    Typial American mindset.

    That is not natual. That is sick and perverse.

    Finally, some decent SciFi! I really missed BSG on SyFy as it was some of the most original storylines to come along in quite a while. With Defiance, the writers along with Rockne S. O’Bannon (Farscape) will most definitely create a whole new universe with this one. Can’t wait!

    It looks really interesting, I hope people watch it.

    I do too – loved Farscape and I can only hope this is as good.

    I liked BSG sure enough, but it isn’t on my list of all time favourites. Farscape is though!

  7. admin says:

    hmmm. Those values aren’t held high in US culture at all.

    Could never get into Eureka, I think I should give it another chance.

    I do like the looks of this one though.
