Defiance From the creator of Farscape and Seaquest DSV, Defiance is the first original TV series to air on the SyFy Channel since Battlestar Galatica. An epic fantasy drama combining the scope of a sci-fi blockbuster with the intimacy of a small-town drama, Defiance is set in the near future, on a completely transformed planet Earth, inhabited by the survivors of a universal war.
