Are you ready to take a trip to Defiance?

Syfy has released the first trailer for the upcoming series, which is set in the near future after aliens known as Votans come to Earth and start a war with humans.

"Nine years after their arrival, when the destruction finally ran its course, it wasn't exactly Earth anymore," the trailer warns. "Something new had been created."
