Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012 Oh no, Defiance is post-apocalyptic? How cliche. I had higher hopes when the earlier releases talked about a "terraformed" Earth (although that would be using the word incorrectly, since that means making a planet more Earthlike). I'd imagined something where alien settlement led to the deliberate transformation of the planet (maybe as a way of restoring the ecosystem we ruined?).
