I have to admit, I’m pretty excited for this Defiance to start. I love science fiction. And this looks pretty cool so far. I’m also happy to see sci-fi return to the channel that made its name on it, the Syfy channel. Defiance is set in the near future, in a world where aliens called the Votans have come to Earth looking for a new home after theirs was destroyed. The Votans arrive in the year 2013 thinking Earth was uninhabited, but soon learn they were wrong. Now 33 years into the future, after a war ravages the planet and then eventually terraformed, we find Earth has changed and now humans and aliens are co-inhabiting the planet, but it is now a strange place. Defiance is a revolutionary entertainment experience set on future earth and it premieres tonight, Monday April 15th at 9pm EST on the Syfy channel.
