Lee Tergesen plays General Rahm Tak in the third season of Syfy's
"Defiance," a dystopian alien drama set on Earth in the mid-21st
Syfy stated in a press release on Feb. 2, 2015, that production has
started in Toronto for the 13-episode third season, which will air
in summer 2015.
General Rahm Tak is ruthless leader in the Votanis Collective. He is
a well-read, brilliant strategist who imposes his army upon the town
of Defiance with decisive force in his pursuit of power.
The Votanis Collective is the main governing body of the Votans, a
collective term for eight different alien species.
Following the events of the season two cliffhanger finale, the third
season of "Defiance" will opens on the eve of an impending military
siege upon a town facing hard times after the collapse of lucrative
mines. The townspeople face an added threat with the surprise
arrival of the nearly extinct Omec, an alien race of warriors marked
by the decades of subjugation they imposed upon the galaxy in the
years preceding the Pale Wars.
