Does anyone watch or play Defiance?

I really want to like the show. I'm on the third episode, but the characters are not very interesting. I've seen them all before, and it didn't work then, either. The formula is a lot like Terra Nova's, and the only likable character in Terra Nova was the dictator. Everyone else just made it a family drama.

I suppose the lack of a family being the main characters will ultimately be the show's redemption, because it will allow the characters more wiggle room than Terra Nova had.

It seems to be trying to be Terra Nova, Babylon 5, and Eureka all at the same time. It needs to be more like the second, and less like the former and latter, to really be successful.

Starting off with a conspiracy storyline doesn't usually work. Having a strong, consistent villain worked for Star Trek, whether it was Q or Gul Dukat. Seriously, GOOD VILLAINS MAKE GOOD TV. It's never the heroes! This show doesn't have any from what I have seen so far.

Also, the religious allegories in the aliens is bum. Make them more interesting than frickin right wing religious nuts! Or if you do, make them villains! Anti-vaccination kills!

Am I wrong? Does it get better?

The year is 2545, and mankind's reach into the galaxy has netted it thousands of worlds. Two ideas have taken root that have driven humans to extreme lengths to expand our species' power in the Galaxy, and against each other.

Woah.

I've been posting that thing too much today. I need a break.

I'm MIdas. I'm hoping to have something published someday. I'm going to school to study Game Design, so there's that.

The year is 2545, and mankind's reach into the galaxy has netted it thousands of worlds. Two ideas have taken root that have driven humans to extreme lengths to expand our species' power in the Galaxy, and against each other.

The first, introduced by the Invaders in the mid 21st century, was that Mankind is destined to become the next Galactic superpower, and reign for thousands of years as the dominant force. Mankind will hold the Crown of the Galaxy. Two nations rose, driven by this idea: The Concord, affirming that Mankind must achieve this through any means necessary, seeks to make all humans, regardless of their capabilities or history, equal in sharing and leading in this destiny; and the Theocracy, driving billions with the fervor in the faith that Mankind is divine, and all humans are the Chosen people in the galaxy.

The second, an idea first decided by the first colonists, is Earthright: Whichever nation Earth is a member of holds great power and legitimacy among all humans. Currently, that nation is the Commonwealth, dedicated to the perpetuation of its member states. The Commonwealth seeks to bring order and peace to Human space, even if that means tempering mankind's dreams.

As the three nations bicker and ready for war, profiteers and scoundrels seek to make their fortunes. Pirates from all walks of life have their targets picked out, and are ready to strike. But something-or someone-is leading the pirates, coordinating them. What glory awaits these swashbucklers of the stars?

These powers are to see their enemies crushed before them. But they need officers, leaders of skill and vision, to command their starships and armies; Engineers, people of science and imagination, to design their engines of war, trade, science, and exploration; Politicians, planners of foresight and guile, to create paths for the future and through these dark times; and students, pupils of these great men and women, to be the best and brightest, and claim their destiny!

How will you play?

We are currently testing our mechanics. Testers will have access to more gameplay options as the game comes to full playability, so join now!
