Defiance

Series Summary
It's the middle of the 21st century and there are new rules and a completely altered landscape on Earth after three decades of alien races arriving on the planet. Mysterious Nolan and his charge, Irisa, come to the town of Defiance, located atop the ruins of what was St. Louis, in an attempt to keep things in order as humans and aliens try to coexist. Events occur that threaten to disrupt the peace the town has fought to establish. In what Syfy is calling a first-ever convergence of TV and online gaming, each happening -- both in the show and in the companion video game -- affects what happens in the other medium, and the two evolve together as one story.

Critic Reviews ( 3 )
  • Defiance is not just a smart, well-crafted TV show with a good cast and an adventurous flavor, it's also indisputably science fiction, which is a relief. Show More

  • Moments in the first episode suggest Defiance could be filled with the kind of minutiae "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" fans love. But its plot is so thin it could float away. Show More

  • The visionary environments are without blemish, and the sound design is on the level of some of Hollywood's heavy-hitters. Yet the stodgy inaction between each explosive set piece is so often bereft of substance that to endure Defiance is to lamentably scour its orbit for any exiguous points of engrossment. Show More
