A TV series premiering on April 15, 2013, and [[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMO]] {{TPS}} videogame released on April 2, 2013, ''Defiance'' is set on 2072 Earth, badly damaged from a war with alien colonists called Votans and continued bombardment by the wreckage of their ships. The Votans are a loose alliance of seven species from multiple planets in the Votan solar system, whose sun has gone nova. The war started when they arrived at Earth seeking shelter and were refused, and ended when soldiers on both sides gave up fighting out of disgust at the pointlessness of it, and set about rescuing the civilians caught in the cross-fire. The game takes place around San Francisco, the series in a settlement named Defiance built on what used to be St. Louis. The town of Defiance is inhabited by both humans and Votans, in a tenuous state of coexistence. Planet Earth's environment has been drastically altered and filled with alien flora and fauna by the terraforming equipment that crashed when the Votan spaceships were mysteriously destroyed during the war.

The TV series stars Grant Bowler as Chief Lawkeeper Jeb Nolan, JulieBenz as Mayor Amanda Rosewater, Tony Curran as Castithan community/underworld leader Datak Tarr, Jaime Murray as Stahma Tarr, StephanieLeonidas as Deputy Lawkeeper Irisa Nyira, Mia Kirshner as town madam Kenya Rosewater, and Graham Greene as industrialist Rafe [=McCawley=].

!!''Defiance'' provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Irisa, as is typical for an Irathient.
* AfterTheEnd: Most nations have fallen after the war and the changes caused by the terraforming machines. It's a brand new world.
* TheAlliance: The Votans are a loose coalition of seven alien species.
* AlienInvasion: Subverted. The Votans aren't so much invaders as desperate refugees trying to find a new home.
* ConLang: Linguist David J. Peterson, who created the Dothraki language for ''GameOfThrones'', has created full languages for the Castithans and Irathients, as well as outlines of languages for other Votans.
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: It appears that Rafe [=McCawley=] does not approve of his daughter Christie's relationship with Datak and Stahma's son Alak. It's not clear if that's because he's Votan or because his father's something of a mafioso.
* DeathWorld
* HappilyAdopted: Irisa, by Nolan, though their relationship has some ups and downs.
* LadyMacbeth: Stahma Tarr.
* OneWorldOrder: The Earth Republic seems to see itself as this for humanity, many of the world's nations having collapsed during the wars.
* PlanetOfHats: Each of the seven Votan races has its own theme. Irathients are warrior types, Castithans are more classy, Indogenes are scientists, Liberata are usually servants, etc. However, individuals can stand out from these generalizations.
* ProudScholarRace: Indogenes, of the more scientifically-oriented variety.
* ProudWarriorRace: Irathients
* RecycledINSPACE: As the writers have fully acknowledged, it's an immigrant story WITH ALIENS!!! (real ones)
* SceneryPorn
* SpaceElves: Castithans have the aesthetic.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To the re-imagined ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]''. Many of the same people are involved in producing it and have commented on how it has a similar feel. BearMcCreary is even doing the music. The frontier aspect has also engendered comparisons to ''{{Firefly}}'' and ''{{Series/Farscape}}''.
* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy / WhiteHairedPrettyGirl: The Castithans, an albino race who are the most human-looking and attractive of the Votans. The males even [[LongHairedPrettyBoy wear their hair long]].
