Get a behind-the-scenes look at the sets and FX of Defiance

We're creeping closer to the April 2013 debut of Defiance, which will be both a dramatic TV series from Syfy and an immersive MMO designed by Trion Worlds. To get a better idea of the look and feel of Defiance, take a behind-the-scenes tour of the sets—both real and virtual—and learn how its otherworldly look will be achieved.

From the mind of Farscape creator Rockne S. O'Bannon, and with a cast that includes the likes of Mia Kirshner (24), Jaime Murray (Dexter), Tony Curran (The Pillars of the Earth), Stephanie Leonidas (MirrorMask), Julie Benz (Angel) and Grant Bowler (True Blood), Defiance will chronicle the world-changing events on Earth as seven alien races begin to move in on the planet, and the war that ensues when negotiations don't go so well.

But because Defiance is an interactive experience, viewers will be able to go inside the universe to make their own choices, blending videogame action with dramatic television.

Check out the video below for an insider's look at the world of Defiance.
