Defiance, the television half of an ambitious transmedia project between Syfy Network and MMO maker Trion Worlds, made its TV premiere last night.
Set in a ruined St. Louis, Missouri several decades after aliens encounter Earth in 2013, Defiance portrays an uneasy truce between humans and aliens eking out a struggle in an environment rendered significantly harsher by war. The first episode is embedded above with Hulu; non-US viewers can check out the first 14 minutes via the SyFy website.
The MMO half of Defiance launched on Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC earlier this month. Polygon previously took a look behind the scenes of both parts of Defiance last November.
