Wow, this is cool! A video has been released showing the production of Syfy’s upcoming drama, Defiance and the attached MMO that will run along side the show, being made by Trion Worlds. Created by Rockne S. O’Bannon (creator of Farscape) and starring Julie Benz (she played Rita in season 1-4 of Dexter, just before it became garbage), it is set 35 years in the future after an alien ship crashes on earth, terra-forming the planet.
Honestly before this video I wasn’t very excited for this show (except for seeing Julie Benz on TV again, she’s great) but now that I have a clearer idea of the vision and scope of this project, I am now very much looking forward to this. It is really neat that they are tying the game and show together in a way that they will actually affect each other! Let’s just hope Syfy doesn’t screw this up. Defiance should air sometime early next year.
Random question of the day! With Prometheus less than a month away and several great looks at the ship, I’m wondering how the Prometheus matches up against our other great ships.
So, what is your favourite looking spaceship?
For me, it is a toss-up between “Serenity” from Joss Whedon’s Firefly and “Destiny” from Stargate: Universe but they are all pretty awesome in their own ways.
Here are pictures of each ship listed to help you decide (I tried to keep it to the most well-known ship from each franchise so there wouldn’t be a billion options in the poll). The Poll is below all of them.
SSV Normandy SR-1:
Planet Express Ship (why not):
TARDIS (yes it is a spaceship, not just a time machine):
I tried to add as many of the best ships that I could think of. If you have a different answer, vote as other and comment below why you chose that.
