Re: The Defiance Thread - News about the Show and Game

All I kept thinking was...if they put this cool backstory in front of a David Brin, Greg Bear, etc they might have a really cool show, but they didn't quite succeed yet.

Unlike Farscape, I actually like these actors, so I'll probably stick around longer. It's the only real lasting impression of the show except for the brief prologue. I might need to rewatch it.

Why would there be 5 different terraforming machines? The aliens were going to share the planet not fight for the winning terraforming ecosystem.

There's no way a group of advanced aliens like this coming to Earth would ever result in a stalemate or victory for Earth. Yes I understand the Ark's were destroyed, but apparently battle was at a stalemate before that.

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
