TV Preview: Defiance

January 9th, 2013

I had heard about Defiance a while ago, but this is the first proper trailer I’ve seen of it. The idea is interesting: it’s an upcoming scifi TV show on Syfy AND an upcoming MMO video game which was created alongside the TV show. I’m super excited to see how that turns out!

Here’s the first full length trailer:

I like the look of this! The acting doesn’t look fantastic, but the style and world look quite interesting. The series is set in the near future after Earth has declared ceasefire with the Votan, a collection of seven alien species seeking a new home after their solar system was destroyed. The Wikipedia page goes into more detail of the different alien species (well, 5 out of the seven at the time of writing this), each with their own unique facial/body features and even their own language (they’ve got the linguist that created the Dothraki language for Game of Thrones).

What do you think of the trailer? Something you’ll end up watching? Defiance is set to premiere on the Syfy channel on Monday April 15th.
