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

The basic nature of the alien designs is understandable given how many of them there have to be per episode. The more elaborate the makeup, the more time and money it takes to apply it, so SFTV aliens who need to appear in large numbers tend to be given fairly simple makeups. Since Castithans are the most common aliens in Defiance itself (although second to Irathients elsewhere), they have the most basic makeup, followed by Irathients, and the makeups get more elaborate as the species get less numerous.
