For a show that won't even be out for another six months, Syfy's Defiance has been promoted at an awful lot of conventions, with "making of" trailers and plenty of hype. But until now, we hadn't seen much of the series. That's no longer the case thanks to this new trailer, and now we can say in earnest, let the anticipation begin!
Defiance is attempting to do what hasn't quite worked before: melding the world of television and video games. A massively multiplayer online game of the same name is being produced by Trion Worlds (Rift) and will tie in to the series. Both are scheduled for release in April 2013.
But let's focus on the TV portion here, a future-set tale of aliens and Earthlings aiming to share the same crowded real estate. After their solar system is destroyed, a group of multi-species aliens looks to crash on our couch, much to the chagrin of humans. War starts, harmful technology is released, and now the planet is a dump. Thanks a lot, aliens!
