It was as if Timothy Leary had come back from the dead and orchestrated a "trip" ..


I suppose, now that you've mentioned this, maybe that's another clue to the show being over .. no one they knew on Earth could still possibly be alive ..

They're also conveniently ignoring the fact that Earth is the only habitable planet anywhere nearby, which is why the Omec ship was searching for the Votans for so long before locking in on radio transmissions from Earth. Nolan is effectively on a suicide mission.

Based on what? It looked like it created some sort of wormholes and went through them. Which is why it left rings behind and at the start it moved out of the solar system in progressively larger jumps.

It is science fiction after all.

Not sure that will turn out to be the case.

I agree ...
While watching I was reminded of the Movie ' Contact" where Jodie Foster is in the "ship", & it made frequent similar "stops", just long enough for her to "see" another solar system or whatever, & then "jumped" to the next location ....

Both Dark Matter and Killjoys got their renewals, which doesn't bode well for Defiance. Considering how the season finale ended it looks like it's finished.

Stick a fork in it. Like I said in a post above, that's a series finale if I ever saw one. Good time to step away, or next season might resemble this year's 'Falling Skies' or DOME! And nobody wants that.

Plus wasn't Defiance an expensive show? I liked it. Especially Season 3, but I was surprised it made it past two seasons.

Reminds me of this family photo (I trust your dad eventually quit smoking?). After I saw this episode of 'The Twilight Zone', I was in therapy for years...
