Is that Lucky Starr from the Isaac Asimov YA novels?

For me the last season ends in a satisfactory way the main storyline at least has been completed with some nice possibilities kept open for a spin-off (or two)

Agreed.

Although I should feel more satisfied that the favorable outcome was achieved without any loss for The Rocinante crew. That was genuinely unexpected.
Come to think of it, the only major character to kick the bucket in the finale was 'ol Space Bin Laden.


Surely there's the possibility that The Expanse could be revived a few years down the line - if those aul wans from Sex and the City can successfully stage a comeback after 20 years, then anything's possible.

Anyway - great series, fantastic characters and a complete, solid story. A rare gem.

Is there any reason for the name drop for "Aliens" just before the drop or just paying homage the writers fav film?

The screen showing the assault team's names was full of references, not just to Aliens:



Good spot it was only the Aliens ones that stood out for me. Now I’m trying to name the films the characters are in (without google) it will while away the morning 😁

Too late, someone on another forum had already beaten you to the punch and wrote them all down.

I’ll soldier on the without looking for 24 hours then I’ll search for the answers - so far pick out 6 films but struggling now - I sooo want “Rico J” to be Judge Rico 😁 when it’s confirmed.

Thanks for posting that list Batman’s superior Cousin.

I only got up to 8 and wouldn’t have got the others in a million years. It was fun racking my brain for a few hours- without google
