Fans are going to dive into a deep alien world when Syfy’s Defiance debuts next month, but lucky for us a new clip breaks down all the alien races occupying post-invasion Earth.

The series, which takes place after an alien colonization, finds humans living alongside seven alien races that sought refuge in our solar system. In a new behind-the-scenes featurette, the cast and crew break down the differences between the races and show off a ton of intriguing new footage.

It looks like a dense sci-fi world, not unlike the universe producer Rockne S. O’Bannon put together on his previous series Farscape. It seems to be loaded with action, intrigue and a fair dose of sexiness, as well. The expansive cast includes sci-fi alums such as Julie Benz (Angel), Grant Bowler (True Blood) and Jaime Murray (Warehouse 13), along with several others.

In addition to the new series, the universe will also play out in multi-platform videogame, which is available for pre-order now. Events on the show, and in the game, will have lasting effects to both media. 

The series premieres April 15, and the game hits shelves April 2.
