    Did the TV series finish their storyline?

    My major annoyance in regards to sci-fi shows is that they get cruelly axed before they finish their storyline.

    When I learned Defiance has received this treatment, I thought I should check on how much of the story they finished before being pushed onto the chopping block.

    Did they manage to finish the plots (major or otherwise) before the final episode of season 3 ended?

    Sort of. The VC death squad was wiped out, the Omec are gone from Earth, Irisa found some form of closure for what the Kaziri made her do, Datak and Stahma reconciled with Alak, Stahma and Amanda reconciled, Defiance is safe.

    Really the only open ended story was Nolan and Yewll being sent off into space.

    Unless they plan to start a new series with just Nolan, Yewll, and the omec that part is wrapped up too. The ship was implied to be sublight just like the Arks so Nolan and company are years down the timeline in the last scene. It is not as if they could simply turn around and head back to earth to take up where they left off.

    I kind of got the feeling like they knew it was going to be cancelled because they attempted to wrap things up. The minute the main characters starting being killed off I got kind of suspicious. They did wrap it up, but if felt in haste. I suppose I was looking for more time with it, but it was just enough I guess.

    I'm not even sure how they would incorporate a spin off, or another show in the same setting universe but I can't see that happening either. Was always looking for the connections with the show to the game and always expecting ark hunters to be more abundant, so that the players felt more immersed in the show as well. I never got that feeling though. *shrug*

    Considering the ship jumped from Earth to Mars to Jupiter and to Saturn in a matter of minutes, I'd say that the ship is capable of faster than light travel. The ship took 70 years to travel 19.6 light years from Gliese 783 but as we know it arrived at Earth underpowered so with a fuel tank maybe it can travel very fast.

    SyFy could sell the TV show rights for some Comics publisher. It could be great if Defiance was game + comic books, to complete the story and close plot holes.

    You just revived a 2 year old thread just to post something that has nothing to do with the original post? Did you know that we have an option to create new threads and that anyone can use that option?

    I didn't say I don't like them, you clearly misunderstood my post and came to the conclusion yourself. I actually like them. Some of them give me a good chuckle.

    No the TV show did not finish the story line. It rewrote major parts of the story in bring in the Omec to fast forward to an ending that never existed in the original lore of the game. They tied up loose ends that thankfully wouldn't have much of an impact on the Bay area, but I hope they redact as much of it as possible if they plan on adding the Mag Lev so we can go to Defiance and see those locations in game too.

    We still keep in touch with the original Lore guy from Defiance. He's likely to come around and help us out at K-TAM with our story lines to keep as close to the original game lore as possible. Be good to see what 2050 will bring in new stories. I hope they get back on track and don't follow Syfy. Be nice to see Grant and Irisa still visiting the bay area from time to time.
