** The Biomen are Expys of [[HeavyGear GREL]]: Bald, muscular humanoids with a distinctly inhuman skintone (blue instead of purple), with individuals tending to be named after their series designation (Presidential first names instead of Arthurian or Roman-themed names).

'''''Defiance''''' (2013--15) is set on 2046 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 Pale Wars 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 series takes place 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.

** [[spoiler: ...that [[MagnificentBastard Stahma]] [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Tarr]] was really in love with Kenya and finding solace with her from her own [[InLoveWithYourCarnage abusive marriage]]? It does seem like she had feelings for Kenya but not in the way a human would define "feelings".]]

* GenreSavvy:
** The Volge in the pilot get points for recognizing that a tower with something glowing on top placed directly in their path is probably bad, and ordering it shot down. However, they lose points for not trying hard enough (they shot at it once then ignored it), allowing it to go off and destroy them. Although they did have an excuse: their leader was the one who recognized the danger, and he was killed.
** Stahma is the real brains of the Tarr family (although Datak isn't exactly an idiot, he is brash and impulsive) and seems to always know how to leverage a situation for maximum advantage. She is also more perceptive and culturally-aware than Datak.

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Averted. It is taken very seriously when [[spoiler: Nolan is raped by Kindzi. She's a 'she,' and she's pretty, but she's also much stronger than a human, a murderer dozens of times over, armed, and she sets new records in AxCrazy. When she took Nolan from the VC caravan by slaughtering them, restrained him, [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty described her intentions to make him her 'pet,']] and then forced herself on him, no part of the situation was treated as a minor thing due to Nolan being male]], though only time will tell if the subject is taken up again once the immediate crisis is over.
* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: Also averted. Pottinger's RapeAsBackstory by VC soldiers is taken just as seriously as Amanda's by some random assailant[[spoiler: (who turned out to not have been random at all, but actually Pottinger, who became obsessed with Amanda after Connor had [[BiTheWay left him for her]], stalked and later raped her)]].
