The Ugly: The Message
So basically this is Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. A town at the edge of frontier surrounded by wilderness and its horrors and a heroic woman who is not afraid to take charge of the diverse community of humans and aliens. What's ugly in that? Well, nothing in itself, but once you start to think: the Votans a conglomerate of alien races arrived to Earth 30+ years ago to find a new home. Probably they were not expecting this but Earth was already populated at this time. Guess by whom? Yep, correct, by us. They landed and started to Terra-form the Earth (do you see the irony of this?). Naturally the war unleashed. During the course of the war the mighty alien fleet was defeated and still dead ships circle around Earth orbit, from time to time plunging down to surface and posing a major temptation to united human/alien scavengers. So imagine, the Earth and its civilization is in ruins, the war is raging and among all this horror a Defiant Few emerge: those who refuse to fight aliens who took away our home and rather inclined to make a pact with them. So the pact is made, Earth from now on is a home to a multitude of alien races and lost all its original touch and appeal. Well, one of these filthy traitors is actually a protagonist in this multi-culti soap opera. And of course there is a Shadow Council of humans which understandably defy this alien inflicted "utopia" which consists of very Zionist looking man and a very Angela Merkel looking woman (former Defiance town mayor) which strive to make a difference. So all my heart goes to them and I wonder what's in store for them on their noble quest. Well, I know I am being vile but you just got to put your glasses like in They Live to understand what you're up against. Though I love the acting, I cannot deny the ugliness of message. As for me I am sick and tired of all this multi-culti bullshit being shoveled down our throats. The most important thing a book, a movie or a TV-series needs to do to be successful and appreciated is to engage the audience in a way so that they feel that the story is plausible and that they can identify with the characters.
There are several ways to do that, and unfortunately Defiance fail on all fronts. - The background story of the whole situation is very vague, we hardly get any information about how all the characters ended up where they are and what motivates them. - There are hardly no character development, what you see the first time you encounter them let's you know exactly how they will act in the future. - The characters (including both humans and aliens) are total clich辿s and act so different from normal human beings that you can't identify with anyone no matter how hard you try.
I have one question to the production team: In the future, can you please state what age group your work is aimed at here at IMDb? That way I could have skipped this right away since it's apparently aimed at kids between 10 and 12 years of age. The Votanis Collective, or Votans, originate from a binary star system in the Perseus Veil (or Perseus Arm). The Votans were forced to flee their system after a galactic cataclysm. The Sol System became a very appealing new home: Jupiter alone had 65 moons that could be reformatted with their Terramorph technology, there were ample mining opportunities in the asteroid belt, and, perhaps most importantly, they believed Earth void of intelligent life due to the absence of spaceflight technology. When negotiations for colony rights broke down, the Votans declared war on humanity, which culminated with the Arkfall, when several of their ships crashed onto the planet's surface, inadvertently unleashing the Terramorph technology and irrevocably altering Earth's biosphere. The Collective is comprised of the following species:
Castithan A humanoid race with pale skin and white hair, Castithans bear the strongest physical resemblance to humans, and from a political standpoint, are the Collective's dominant species. A highly spiritual race with a rigid caste system, most of the Casthithan refugees are from their ruling class.
Indogene The most technically advanced Votan species, Indogene are congenitally hairless humanoids with a wiry build and pale skin, which has runes and tattoos to denote individual identity. As the physically weakest Collective species, they tend to undergo various forms of genetic or cybernetic modifications, specific to their chosen professions.
Irathient The most physically robust Votan species, the Irathients have been the most successful in adapting to life on Earth. They bear a strong resemblence to humans, but have prominent ridges similar to Neanderthals.
Liberata A race of short, squat humanoids with porcine features, Liberata held the economic power among the Votan races until their greed led to their downfall. They have since become the servant caste in Votan society. Despite their social status, most Liberata have a strong sense of humility, viewing their current predicament as punishment for crimes of their ancestors.
Sensoth An ape-like species from the Irathient homeworld, the Sensoth have a lifespan of approximately 200 years. As a result of this longevity, Sensoth tend to be deliberate and conservative in nature, preferring long-term plans over abrupt action.
Gulanee An energy based species that require containment suits to interact with their surroundings; the rarest Collective race encountered.
Volge A race of automatons, disliked by all of the other Votan races, and the closest thing to a straightforward "villain" race. They stand over eight feet tall, are covered in dense armor, and possess integrated internal weapons. Not intended to be part of the Exodus, they were smuggled onto the Arks via unknown means.
Not every creature is alien, however, as the Votan Terramorph technology inadvertently created several mutants. The series takes place in what used to be St. Louis, Missouri, now called Defiance, while the game takes place in the California Bay Area, formerly San Francisco.
The show focuses mainly on life in Defiance, and the power struggle between its most powerful families. Comparisons to Deadwood (2004) and Game of Thrones (2011) have been made. Conversely, the game focuses on the Bay Area Expedition, where Ark Hunters are seeking to recover salvage from crashed Votan ships at the behest of Machiavellian industrialist Karl von Bach. Some major characters in one will have cameos in the other. Series protagonists Nolan and Irisa appear in some of the game's early campaign missions, where they engage in morally questionable activities such as theft and piracy. In the series, Nolan is seeking redemption for these actions. Also, it is highly likely that von Bach is involved the show's conspiracy arc.
