Full Episode Summary

In a world 30 years after the Votans have invaded and terraformed large portions of Earth, scavengers Joshua Nolan and his adopted alien daughter Irisa make their way through the wastelands. A quirk of fate brings them to the town of Defiance, where St. Louis once stood and where Humans and Votans now live in peace. Father and daughter soon become embroiled in a feud between two families and a murder, all of which is a prelude to an invasion.

I'm generally sympathetic to the negative reviews and comments about this episode and this show. One thing I would add - Creating a mediocre and completely redundant game on a platform (XBOX) that will be replaced in a matter of months by the next generation of gaming consoles (XBOX 720) just seems plain dumb, from a business perspective.

i am a far scape nut..so i see o'bannon as the creator and i'm excited....now, there is sci fi and there is sci fi .i also know not to compare in any big way..what i am worried about is how formula it is..the lost,lonely hero bound to become our new marshall dillon with an edge,who can fight and beat anyone..the offbeat daughter alien he has raised(as in the native american)..we have a western with really cool make up..but wait lets get a bit more formula and add the romeo and juliet story as well..so now we have three forumal stories we have all seen many times, that are hidding in a sci fi drama..when have i seen this b/4..post apocalyptic with mad max like motor cycle gangs..a selfless hero that is a rebel and a fighter,soldier..a town named "Defiance",right out of a western with all the trappings..teen love,two rich families one bad,the other only mostly good or mostly bad?..and a town full and ripe with racism..all struggling to make a new life...we have no ships rushing thru space with all those incrediable views..no new worlds of people,some who know we are out there,others that don't. no really new untouched cultures because they are all here living in defiance30+ yrs, maybe not happily with each other,but chooseing to be together kinda..firefly (a western-like SPACE adventure),far scape,another space adventure...what can you say,living ships and symbiotic pilots villians the likes of which we have never imagined,prisoners of an imperialistic nation/planet who are "peace keepers" for the universe,but are really wa-mongers(sound like anything you may know of),a protaganist who is handsome and sexy but not in this uni..and relates everything tongue in cheek and with pop culture refrences galore..scary,really scary villians who have no boundries for anything except selfish motives and cunning alot of cunning...and i said i would not compare...(if you have not treated yourself do) and maybe this will be more than what i am seeing..i hope so.

It should last quite a few seasons just simply based off the game since the show will influence what happens in the game, gamers will wanna watch and tv fans will probably get the game

should I wait till we know for sure if this show will last at least a couple of seasons?? I've been defrauded by the cancellations of shows (recent ones) such as Alphas, Alcatraz, V.

I have the Xbox 360 game pre-ordered and I'm looking forward to watching this show. Trion Worlds has a great concept here and the Defiance world should be a great one with many different stories going on at the same time. If this goes right this could be a multi-platform success and also go into books and comics. The whole Defiance team seems to have created a huge back-story and the world looks like it will be highly entertaining. Can't wait!!
