Defiance is the latest television series from Farscape creator Rockne S. O’bannon. The Syfy original series is centered around a conflict between between two opposing factions made up of both humans and Votans, an alien race that was once at war with mankind. The real draw to the show is the incorporation of a full-feature MMO shooter that will have a direct impact on the story week-to-week.
