Feedback requested about possible announcement on proposed EU law

I would like community feedback on whether it would be okay to create a wiki-wide announcement urging EU users to petition their representatives to stop passage of an onerous copyright law.

If you would like to read more about it, search for "European Copyright Directive Article 13" although "Article 11" is pretty bad too.

Everything is so realistic BUT these sounds.. 😞

Expanse Series: iTunes vs Amazon

SYFY Channel cancels another great series. ;-(
Good news is Amazon picks it up for S4. But does that mean no downloadable format will be offered ... such as iTunes? Amazon currently allows no downloadable subscriptions or purchase for film content.

Gas cloud

How does the gas cloud look in relation to the gate the shows depiction is very confusing.

Some history on The Expanse

I noticed there is no "About The Expanse" page, so this information doesn't really fit anywhere else and I wanted to put it here. There is this great article on Barnes and Nobles that was written around the time "The Expanse" was being developed for television and "Cibola Burn" had been released. Its an in-depth article about the history of the series from its humble beginnings in Ty Franck's mind, how it evolved into an online forum-based game, grabbed the attention of Daniel Abraham and became a collaboration and instant hit for the two.

It would be nice if we could incorporate the information directly into the wiki somewhere as a page of information in case the article ever gets taken down, but right now it doesn't fit anywhere on the nav.

Be aware there are spoilers within the article about the books written at the time (and "Cibola Burn" was being released), but it is a fascinating read.

Who is the Captain on the Behemouth?

Who is the Captain on the Behemouth? Why is she called Camina by two people: 1 male, 1 female? I think it's like a nickname?

Face in the sky?

So glad it looks like The Expanse may be saved by Amazon. I have a question that I thought people here could answer. In Episode 6 Series 3 when Bobby and the Hybrid have fallen after their chase, why does the hybrids face appear above Io in the sky (or is it me seeing things)? Just curious.

I really hope another network picks it up... Netflix would be perfect. SyFy is as much to blame for the poor ratings as anyone. They did a sh!t job of promoting the show... it was all The Magicians, Twelve Monkeys, some-other-not-really-sci-fi show, etc. They really should change their network name to NotReallySyFy.

Bad news...

Looks like SyFy has cancelled the TV show after season 3... at least there is a chance another network could pick it up.

Regarding the UNN Escort Ship in the Episode IFF

Is the ship the same vessel as the Nathan Hale from season 2? It has the same hull number marking (307) as the Hale but a different paint scheme.

Naming convention for the Ring Builders

The Ring Builders have quite a few names (Ring Builders, alien civilization, hive-minded aliens, Gate makers, Creators, etc.), which, I believe, requires that we set up a naming convention. How about we call them the Precursors from now on? I only see it fitting since they were the precursor civilization to humanity and colonized an area 1,000-ly wide long before Earth developed what is to be considered complex life.

Just finished Persepolis, and there is a line at the end I'm trying to make sense of. Naomi, talking to Alex, says:

"Or on Marais, when he went into the cliffs so we wouldn't run out of water?"

But for the life of me I don't know what she is talking about. I don't think it's from a Novella. Anyone care to enlighten me?

Caliban's War: The Characters

Season 3 is due to arrive soon.  While no premiere date is known yet,  We do know that coverage of Caliban's War will be completed, likely the conclusion will coincide with episode 6.  As I recently did for Persepolis Rising, I want to piece together all the potential wiki pages that need to be included on this wiki.  It'll serve to publicize not just what missing but also serve as an index to other information introduced from Caliban's War.

This will be considered the fourth in a series of lists on topics which need articles from Caliban's War. This is a list of articles in the "Characters" category.  The full list of categories for Persepolis Rising can be found here.

If you want to help our The Expanse fan community, check this list and add content to these articles.  If the article doesn't exist yet, please create it.

If you have questions on naming conventions or formats, please refer to the manual of style, compare with existing articles, and ask here.

Below, you will see the list of characters.  Where possible, describe the physical characteristics, the allegiances, the full name, the title, the position/role, the relationships, backstory, and incidents which the character impacted another character or event.

Reference to "missing ships" at end of Persepolis Rising? (SPOILERS)

In the final conversation between Duarte and Holden in Persepolis Rising, Duarte suggests that the weird alien ball thing is related to the "missing ships".  By "missing ships" does he mean the ships that disappear when traveling through the rings if too much/mass and energy is/has gone through them?

I was under the impression that the overload of the rings that causes ships to disappear was a natural consequence of ring gate usage, not some kind of alien sabotage.

Persepolis Rising: Technology & Devices

Persepolis Rising is here with lots of new information.

This is the sixth in a series of lists on topics that need articles. This is a list of articles in the "Technology" or "Devices" category.  The full list of categories for Persepolis Rising can be found here.

Want to help update the articles? Great!

In the category of technology, there was

  • Laconian Power Armor
  • USM field projector also described as ultra high magnetic field projector
  • Laconian wrist monitor
  • Laconian orbital platforms
  • protomolecule stem cell grafts used to immortalize Duarte

Is there something missing? Is there a more precise and accurate name/description?
