So Sy-Fy, despite being named in honor of the genre it’s supposed to predominately show, doesn’t dabble in science fiction quite nearly as much as it should. So could Defiance be a sign of things to come? I hope so.
The series, which premieres in April, tells the story of an Earth 35 years in the future, ravaged by a “universal war” which included an alien invasion of our world. Created by the sci-fi power forward team of Michael Taylor (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Rockne S. O’Bannon (seaQuest DSV, V, Farscape), and Kevin Murphy (Caprica), the series stars Mia Kirshner (24), Fionnula Flanagan (Lost), Julie Benz (Dexter) and Grant Bowler (True Blood).
Let’s roll the trailer shall we:
Seems interesting, right. A world full of alien/human hybrids interacting with one and other in the wold frontier town formally known as St. Louis? I think I might definitely check this out in the spring.
What are your thoughts, fellow Bastards?
