I wonder what moon inhabitants like Prax fall under in the wellwallah/beltalowda scale. You'd think they'd be somewhere in the middle, living in 0 < x < 1 gravity. Why don't they get cover songs.

this makes me very sad, although I assume that the books eventually include other ways that depict what the protomolecule is actively doing

a small pile of blue goo under the floorboards of your ship manipulating your brain at a distance to investigate why nobody is answering their calls is pretty cool and crazy


Also completely unrelated I'm wondering if the ring station and the thousands of systems connected within was the extent of the ring builder civilization, just one of many, or was built by autonomous protomolecule in the millions of years after to replace one that might've been destroyed during the war. I had assumed the latter this whole time but given that new Terra was clearly actively used by their civilization it sounds like the first choice? It's all very fun to think about.

Nothing says the protomolecule can't have plans after the ring gate's built to convert a planet. If it can build wormholes it can probably manage whatever the gently caress that planet was for.

I'm pretty certain whatever glass material they use for their Future Phones is pretty drat durable compared to today. I remember the phone that got smashed to bits by the robot arm in the Navoo looked fragile but at the same time it got crushed by a robotic arm

the gently caress happened to miller's then? did he get a bible-caught-bullet out of it?

2/4 of the leads (who tend to eat Alex's screentime imo #morealex) are burly white dudes from Baltimore and Missouri respectively. It can be good, but I want better, or improvement in other ways. Let's get some gay kisses or a single trans character, or even a shout out that trans people exist and we have epstein drive penises for trans dudes or something.

I've been doing a rewatch of this show and I forgot how completely breakneck season 3 is. This show is *even better* on a rewatch because there's so many little details everywhere, I'm completely in love with it. It's probably my favourite show since The Wire, and I want seasons 5-8 to launch tomorrow please

Realistically all the MCs died like three books ago given the sheer amount of abuse their bodies have healed from and exciting fight scenes where no bullets hit anyone important, Holden should be in a hospital bed slowly and painfully melting into a radiation puddle.

German and Russian show up in the book version frequently.


The books cover a wide timeframe. I'm saying 40 is bare minimum Alex age for Leviathan Wakes, but it's not specified anywhere I've found.

I'm working through Book 5 and I have to ask, and this can be a one-letter reply, but Alex and Bobby never gently caress, right? Because < 40 + 20(?) =

The only real hard science fiction ever written was done by Greg Egan, a man who regularly makes his readers look at formulas to understand what the main character looks like, does, and values. Everyone else is as soft as Jeff Epstein after meeting Amos.

I just realized that basically nobody enjoys good food in the expanse. Belters eat literal kibble, everyone on basic is getting food bars, fascists aren't known for good food either, so Mars is probably serving up soylent green at this point.

I am sick of there not being a single loving place left on the internet you can escape these single track minded bores.

I'm sorry that reality still exists? Go read CSPAM and learn how to make us happy*, all you need is to do full communism and end fascism.

Also you're basically going "why can't I enjoy this lovely apolitical movie starship troopers," you know that right? Fascism is the aesthetic applied to imperial politics, cool looking coffee mugs are a part of this. You're not supposed to want to live on mars, although tbh I'd probably pick Mars over TE Earth if I had to live somewhere.
