the show has 3 non euro women as lead characters. I wouldn't sweat the loss of one character who disappears almost immediately.

edit: thinking back to the post I made where I said that Frankie Adams wasn't large enough. lol

might be a good idea. there's one little twist that we're probably going to see this season that I'm really looking forward to, wanna see the thread's reaction and it would be a shame if it were spoiled.

they smuggled her armor onto the ship she and Avasarala were on and she used it to beat up JP Mao's goons.

yeah, the armor has to be compact enough that it can be used in ship to ship actions. I seem to remember a larger armor suit from the book (which gets owned by protoman) but it's not in the show, for budget reasons I suppose.

Is there an article somewhere which explains how they manage to do all the zero-g scenes?

I don't have an in depth explanation but you can see some of it in this video, lots of wirework and cg.

that ep 1 scene with Julie Mao, they had her with her hair covered up and replaced with cg hair later.

I read the season 3 and 4 filmed together thing somewhere but recently I've seen talk from people working on the show which seemed to contradict that... so I dunno.

yeah, unmanned drone swarms are more useful than manned star wars style fighter ships. easier to throw a hundred unmanned potentially dangerous drones at them than same number of manned vessels containing people who have to be trained.

There is a space manoeuvre in the Startide Rising, where the dolphins dump a load of water in their wake for a flotilla of chasing galactic fanatics to run into at near c.

I really enjoyed 5 of the uplift books, The Uplift War is as good an example of Planetary Romance that you will find. Brightness Reef (is it just the first half?) is as bad as TUW is good but it is worth slogging through as the two after that are A grade for multiple galaxy spanning grand space opera. I must dig out my copies for a reread...

I wish he'd write another one of those. lots of stuff hinted at in the later books that never got resolved.

Every time I look at the episode list and see the final episode of the season "It reaches out" I get super geeked because I know what's coming and I'm excited to see how it translates to the screen.

Is there a good place in the books to pick up from where we're leaving?

we still don't know for sure where they will stop. the last episode is named after the third book though. and the fourth book, to honest, I kind of doubt they would have really covered it in depth at all.

yeah, there are a lot of distinctive groups which comprise the OPA and they don't necessarily all get along or agree about politics. the show sort of glosses over that fact. the main thing uniting them is that they all think the Inners treat Belters like poo poo.

Speaking with that accent is lower class. Miller thinks he's better than he is and speaks with an educated accent, like an Earther. Miller speaks like a Belter now and then when trying to build rapport. Prax does it once too in the show.

why would Julie Mao tele-incept Miller? Didn't she not know him at all, and he was just some cop on Ceres who was tangentially related to her? Even if the protomolecule has some ulterior, not-just-eat-everything motive, why would it give a poo poo about a corrupt cop on a backwater asteroid?


I always assumed that was just a case of a PI becoming obsessed with the person he was investigating. seeing someone who isn't really there because he was spending all his time thinking about her.

Elias Toufexis is a Canadian actor.
He is most recognized for his voice-acting in the Deus Ex video game series.
The actor is a friend of Cas Anvar and he recommended to do motion capture when the need arose. It was an easy sell keeping Elias "in the family" since he had motion capture experience and he performed the earlier role of Kenzo, the spy for Davila Aerospatiale

Holy poo poo he actually didn't ask for this, and I'm glad he's still connected to the show.

Bobbie is not in this book, but she was with the fleet in the last episode so presumably they're rolling her into the story somehow because it works better for TV. Avasarala also is not in the third book but again, I'm sure they'll fit her in somehow.

yeah, the books have long stretches where some characters don't show up at all, but since characters like Bobbie and Ava are such fan favorites, I can't imagine that they will leave them out for too long.
