When are we going to see the Ark Hunter in the TV show as per the contest (http://www.tentonhammer.com/defiance/news/defiance-contest-will-bring-one-players-character-to-the-show) a while back? Or did I miss something?

They already did in season 2. They didn't bring a specific character from the game, but rather looked at a bunch of race/outfit combinations and picked one of them.

The character was Alethea. Seen here (http://en.defiance-wiki.com/wiki/images/3/37/Alethea.jpg) wearing the corporate operative (http://www.defiancedata.com/model.php?id=67;6025;6022) outfit.

Thanks. I have no memory at all of her in the show. Going to rewatch her episodes ASAP.

Season 2, Episode 10
Season 2, Episode 11
Season 2, Episode 13

According to IMDB.

The impression we got at the time was that they'd use one of our characters.
I don't know if that would of lead to a royalties issue but it's a shame it didn't happen as we expected it to.

Watched episode 10, skimmed through 11... just another henchman. How utterly disappointing. No wonder I couldn't remember. I thought we'd get to see some of the abilities that are in the game and a bit of a story arc.

The great interaction between show and game we were promised prior to the launch of the Defiance franchise has all but vaporized. What is left is limited some sort of messages in bottles between game and show. Not how I had pictured this relationship between the two media.

Yeah, if I'm not mistaken wasn't she just basically a carbon copy of the female ark hunter shown in all the trailers for the game running around with cooper in the Defiant Few Black car.

Yep it could've been something great, something pivotal. Instead of stepping up to the plate and swinging for the fences they just bunted. They could've had a grand slam but chose to hit a double. A double is still respectable, but it's no grand slam.

I thought she should have been the one to take out the Gulanee. Especially since the title of that episode was something like "A Woman's Work". She should have showed up and saved Nolan and Pottinger.

I remember this contest. I also thought they were going to use an actual character. The team has a unique way I misleading when they announce things.
