The first trailer for Defiance, Rockne S. O’Bannon’s upcoming post-apocalyptic science fiction series for SyFy, has emerged online. The series is set 35 years in the future in the former city of St. Louis, Missouri (now named Defiance), following a devastating war with an alien race that transformed much of the Earth’s surface.

Defiance stars Grant Bowler (True Blood) and Julie Benz (Dexter), and will debut in April 2013 along with the release of a tie-in MMO video game to the series from Trion Games.

    Can not wait for this! Especially since it’s set in my hometown! Too bad they completely ruined what St. Louis looks like, there’s no mountains or large hills around the arch 😉

    I think they explained the change in terrain as being due to the aliens’ attempts to terraform the earth for their own purposes.

    In any case, it looks intriguing! I hope they don’t compromise the plot of the TV show by trying to make the video game compatible, though.
