Defiance: A New SyFy Series

It has been a long time since I've been excited over a Sci-Fi series, but after seeing the trailer for Defiance I knew I had to mark my calender and ask siri to remind me to watch it. What blew me away about the trailer was the design and the computer graphics, they put so much detail in the series.  I know what your thinking, it's the same old story aliens trying to take over the world and enslave humans, but the concept for defiance are different we actually get to see the clash of mankind against the thing they fear the most the unknown creatures from space, I wonder who will win the courage and spirit of humans or the strength and technology. I've yet to see any footage of the game, but it's a pretty cool idea produce a show and a game to work together.

IMDB BIO: The series is set in the near future, where aliens known collectively as Votans have come to Earth seeking a new home after their solar system was destroyed. However, when they reached Earth, they discovered despite a prolonged negotiation with the government on Earth, they were not welcome. Rather than turn away, they began a war with the humans as they are determined to make Earth their new home. During the war, the Votans drop terraformers on the planet and transform the surface of the planet; scorching the earth, opening chasms in the ground and covering the surface of the planet in dust and debris. After decades of war, a ceasefire is declared when both sides realise they must focus on survival on this new almost alien planet. The series largely revolves around the character of Jeb Nolan. Jeb was only ten years old when the Votans arrived and he served in the military during the war. With the war now over, he returns to his hometown of St Louis to find it's is no longer the city he left; it is little more than refugee camp. Deciding his services are needed, Jeb takes up a position as the Chief Lawkeeper in Defiance, so he can protect the town from dangerous clashes between humans, aliens, military scavengers and other dangerous visitors who occasionally enter the town
