** Many of the same people that worked on the re-imagined ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' are involved in writing and producing ''Defiance'' and have commented on the scripts being just as tight. Music/BearMcCreary is even doing the music. The frontier aspect has also engendered comparisons to ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' and ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. The show was developed by Rockne O'Bannon, who also created ''Farscape''.

* GunSafety: Nolan is pretty good with this compared to many other shows. In "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", when he gets his gun back from Rafe (who's had it overnight), he promptly checks the chamber and unloads the clip. Justified since he's a former soldier, plus the gun is special to him. He and the lawkeeper in the video game (both members of the Defiant Few) have the same gun.

* RegionalRedecoration: During the Pale Wars between humans and Votans, the alien ships were mysteriously destroyed, causing their terraforming technology to rain down on Earth and begin affecting the planet. [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BWy4gSRCUAA5cNr.jpg Geography, geology, and even the biosphere were radically changed]]; the planet is covered by dust and debris, the atmosphere is saturated by electromagnetic radiation and dangerous hybrids of earth and alien life run rampant. Perhaps no better example is [[http://www.blastr.com/sites/blastr/files/styles/width_1280/public/5-6%20monumentsgatewayarch.jpg?itok=5pHiRZO8 the establishing shot of the St. Louis Gateway arch.]]

The show has a rather novel approach in that it was developed alongside a MassivelyMultiplayer Online Game, also called ''VideoGame/{{Defiance}}''. While the game is set in the San Francisco Bay area (at least currently) in California and the show is set in the remains of St. Louis, Missouri[[note]]about 2000 miles apart[[/note]], they can and do affect each other occasionally.

* The trailer for Season 2 made it look like Nolan and Stahma were kissing. In truth, she just gave him a chaste peck for saving her life from a roller bomb.

* TheAce: Joshua Nolan, through and through. Accomplished fighter, war hero, scavenger, survivor, marksman, and leader. He's completely unflappable, never once panicking even when surrounded by giant mutant bug-wolf-things while out of ammo. And as if all that's not enough, he's also a loving father and role model. [[AntiHero But he's not a good guy. Just a decent one.]]

** Sukar is similar. When Rynn (his adoptive daughter) shoots and wounds him, he's more disappointed by her apparent poor aim than the fact that she shot him in the first place.
