Were you looking for the term, Salvage?

Salvage is the eighth episode in the first season of The Expanse. It premiered on January 26, 2016 on Syfy.

SynopsisEdit

The crew of the Rocinante discovers a derelict vessel holding a secret that may destroy humankind. Holden and crew are led to Eros, where they finally cross paths with Miller, only to make a horrifying discovery. On Earth, Avasarala receives devastating news.

Recap Edit

Things are getting tense at the U.N., as Errinwright has sent a black ops team to Tycho Station to investigate Fred Johnson's alleged stealth tech program … and plans to take out Holden via "random street violence" at Eros Station. As if that isn't enough to deal with, Chrisjen receives word that her friend and colleague, Franklin DeGraaf, the former Ambassador to Mars, took his own life.

Meanwhile, Miller's on the flight to Eros, where his uneasiness over his first time in outer space is noticed by a Mormon gentleman who is set to be a passenger on the Nauvoo. Miller wonders how he can embark on a 100-year journey to a destination that might not be all that he'd hoped for, to which the Mormon replies, "True faith is a great risk." Miller realizes his own journey to Eros to find Julie Mao is based on faith … and thinks, with all of the ever-increasing unrest between Mars, Earth and the Belt, the Mormons might be getting out at just the right time.

Miller arrives at Eros Station, where he discovers that the Anubis 1A is registered to a "Lionel Polanski" (remember, "Lionel Polanski" is the survivor of the Scopuli that Holden and crew were sent by Fred Johnson to retrieve). Unfortunately, Miller's aggressive persuasion tactics utilized to get this information from the dock master lands him in the slammer, from which he's bailed out by his old friend and colleague, Inspector Sematimba. After 'Semy' sees just how dedicated Miller is to his dangerous cause, he gives him some new information: "Lionel Polanski" is the name Julie Mao used when she registered the Anubis 1A, and she's currently a guest at the Blue Falcon Hotel. Miller thanks his friend and is off …

Meanwhile, the Rocinante has arrived at Chartered Belt Asteroid BA-834024112, where the crew finds an abandoned stealth ship … one that looks a lot like the one that "killed the Cant." Upon exploring the vessel, Holden and the gang discover that this is the Anubis, which, according to the navs, was headed for Eros … from Phoebe Station, where Lopez had found everyone dead.

And, per the blood on the airlock door, it's the ship on which we saw Julie Mao before we met any one else.

Speaking of earlier … remember that glowing blue electrical spore-thing that Julie found in Engineering? Yeah, it's still here, though in a semi-dormant state thanks to the ship's power being turned off. When Amos turns on the juice, it starts getting aggressive, prompting a quick return to the Rocinante … and destroying the Anubis via torpedoes. "Remember the Cant," Holden says as he watches the mighty ship go up in a nuclear fireball.

The next stop for the Rocinante? Eros, where Holden figures they'll find this "Lionel Polanski." Worlds collide in the lobby of the Blue Falcon Hotel, where Holden and the gang are ambushed by thugs (the Black Ops team that Errinwright dispatched) … and are rescued by Miller!

Miller, Holden, Amos, Naomi and Alex go up to Room 22, where they're greeted with a horrible stench … and blue-brown fungus-like tendrils in the bathroom. Upon investigating the shower stall, they find the body of a young woman. Coils of fungal growth spill from her mouth, her ribs and spine have grown spurs like knives, and spiky structures stretch from her back and throat, climbing the wall behind her.

"Julie," whispers a heartbroken Miller.

$. [02:23.14]: First time?
$. [02:24.22]: First time what?
$. [02:25.93]: First time in space?
$. [02:27.23]: Oh, lam.
Ah.
$. [02:30.23]: Ceres born
and raised then?
$. [02:32.23]: Yup.
$. [02:34.11]: They say if you
grew up on a station,
$. [02:35.61]: you develop
a natural agoraphobia.
$. [02:38.15]: From living underground.
In the tunnels.
$. [02:39.74]: You're not used to
the wide open spaces.
$. [02:43.41]: I'm used to this guy.
$. [02:45.45]: He spends a lot more time working
underneath things than he does on top.
$. [02:50.33]: He could worry a little more
about his ear hygiene, too.
$. [02:54.88]: You just looked a little
nervous, that's all.
$. [02:58.26]: You know, if you identify the
fear, you can get past it.
$. [03:03.10]: And then you get
used to it.
$. [03:04.93]: I've been flying once a month
for the past year and a half.
$. [03:08.06]: Salesman?
No, I'm, uh...
$. [03:10.48]: I'm preparing myself
for the Nauvoo.
$. [03:12.61]: The Nauvoo.
$. [03:14.27]: Hmm.
$. [03:16.65]: Mormon?
$. [03:17.78]: Yes.
$. [03:20.03]: A different kind of
salesman. (CHUCKLES)
$. [03:22.49]: But don't hold
that against me.
$. [03:24.58]: Well, there was a
time when I would've.
$. [03:28.95]: But not anymore?
$. [03:35.25]: Uh. Forgive me
for saying so,
$. [03:37.71]: but I don't get the
impression you're a man
$. [03:39.22]: who's accepted Jesus
Christ into his heart.
$. [03:41.30]: I guess I'm just
not that desperate.
$. [03:43.64]: We all are.
$. [03:44.72]: If we're being honest
with ourselves.
$. [03:46.35]: (INHALES)
$. [03:48.39]: Let me ask you something.
$. [03:52.14]: You guys are gonna
get on this big ship,
$. [03:54.98]: you're gonna ride out
into the great beyond
$. [03:58.82]: for 100 years.
$. [04:01.45]: What happens when
you get out there...
$. [04:04.41]: (CLICKS TONGUE)
And there's nothing.
$. [04:07.58]: That big planet you got picked
out, it ain't worth a damn.
$. [04:11.46]: I mean, nobody really
knows what's out there.
$. [04:15.96]: You can't come back.
$. [04:18.34]: Well, you're right
about not coming back.
$. [04:22.38]: But if that is the case,
$. [04:25.68]: God has just
revealed to us
$. [04:27.22]: that we haven't finished
our search yet.
$. [04:30.85]: (WHISPERING) Doesn't that
scare the shit out of you?
$. [04:33.48]: Yeah, of course it does.
$. [04:36.48]: But I put myself
in the hands of God.
$. [04:39.98]: True faith is a risk.
$. [04:42.15]: You know, and with
great risk comes...
$. [04:43.78]: Yeah, yeah, I
know the rest.
$. [04:47.03]: (WHISPERING) Yeah.
$. [04:53.66]: Ah, who knows.
$. [04:55.75]: You guys might be getting
out at just the right time.
$. [05:18.19]: Only thing we got here is the
lovely charted belt asteroid
$. [05:21.69]: Bravo-Alpha 834024112.
$. [05:25.20]: No life pod, no emergency
habitat, nothing.
$. [05:29.12]: These were the coordinates
we were given.
$. [05:32.29]: ALEX: It's just a rock.
$. [05:34.91]: Alex, take her around,
let's have a look-see.
$. [05:38.21]: You got it, Chief.
$. [05:40.29]: (THRUSTERS FIRING)
$. [05:56.69]: Alex, hold up.
$. [05:58.44]: Swing back.
$. [06:12.95]: Right there.
$. [06:14.45]: Inside that crevasse.
$. [06:27.47]: (WHISTLES)
$. [06:28.59]: That is some
sweet parking job.
$. [06:31.14]: It's barely registering
on the scopes.
$. [06:33.06]: It's a stealth ship.
$. [06:36.31]: Just like the ones that
killed the Donnager.
$. [06:39.73]: And the Cant.
$. [06:41.86]: I kinda want to blast it.
$. [06:43.57]: Easy there, partner.
$. [06:45.99]: These things
tend to shoot back.
$. [07:33.91]: This is as far
as you've got?
$. [07:36.08]: It's level four
MCRN encryption.
$. [07:38.33]: If I poke the wrong node,
I'll wipe out all the data.
$. [07:40.96]: A lot of Martian
soldiers gave their lives
$. [07:42.88]: for this information.
$. [07:44.71]: I need to know why.
$. [08:06.23]: I need you to
look at something.
$. [08:07.94]: Kinda busy.
$. [08:17.87]: (STATIC CRACKLING)
$. [08:22.37]: What the hell is that?
$. [08:23.87]: HOLDEN: I was hoping
you could tell us.
$. [08:26.84]: Looks dead.
$. [08:28.88]: Oh, yeah,
you're a great help.
$. [08:32.55]: EMF reflection, practically
zero across all main bands.
$. [08:36.76]: It's nice
stealth tech.
$. [08:39.01]: We already
figured that out.
$. [08:40.39]: Who has
ships like that?
$. [08:42.69]: Mars, of course.
$. [08:44.90]: But this is not a design
I've seen before,
$. [08:46.61]: must be one of the newer.
It's not Martian.
$. [08:48.73]: No one else builds stealth,
no one else can afford to.
$. [08:58.70]: This is what Fred Johnson
sent you out here to find.
$. [09:00.83]: I don't think he knew it was out here.
Bullshit.
$. [09:05.42]: A dead stealth ship
sitting next to a rock
$. [09:07.54]: looks just like a rock,
$. [09:08.79]: unless you know
exactly where to look.
$. [09:12.05]: You guys are out here
to salvage this.
$. [09:14.68]: We're not on a
salvage mission.
$. [09:16.43]: Fred Johnson is a
terrorist, you can't...
$. [09:19.30]: We're not on a
salvage mission!
$. [09:24.27]: We're here looking
for survivors.
$. [09:26.81]: And some answers,
if we're lucky.
$. [09:28.90]: Main airlock's open
$. [09:30.65]: but the hull seems
to be intact.
$. [09:32.82]: There could still
be air inside.
$. [09:37.82]: All right, then.
$. [09:39.83]: We're going in.
$. [09:41.20]: Remember what happened the last
time we went into one of these?
$. [09:44.00]: Yeah, well, this time
we got guns of our own.
$. [09:49.84]: Suit up. You're
coming with us.
$. [09:52.42]: Me? What? Why? And meet
your new bodyguard.
$. [10:02.22]: He so much as
breaks a toenail,
$. [10:04.77]: you're hitch-hiking home
from this rock.
$. [10:09.19]: Sure thing, skipper.
$. [10:12.69]: NAOMI: Move.
$. [10:40.76]: HOLDEN: (OVER <i>RADIO)
You seeing our suit-cams?
$. [10:46.14]: ALEX: (OVER RADIO) Yup. All
video feeds are lookin' good.
$. [10:50.06]: This is bullshit.
$. [10:51.98]: You can't just treat me like some...
"Canary in a coal mine?"
$. [10:55.98]: ALEX: (OVER RADIO) All right, people.
Hold on to your helmets.
$. [10:58.45]: Docking tunnel is engaged.
$. [11:00.91]: Connection...
ls good.
$. [11:07.96]: After you.
$. [11:44.32]: Looks like somebody
got spaced.
$. [11:47.12]: Your kind of ship.
$. [12:30.00]: NAOMI: (OVER RADIO) The latch
is broken from the inside.
$. [12:33.37]: Someone forced
their way out of this.
$. [12:45.34]: (DEEP BREATHING)
$. [13:02.36]: This is a Belter suit.
$. [13:05.11]: This is definitely
not a Belter ship.
$. [13:20.09]: AMOS: (OVER RADIO)
Guess that explains
$. [13:21.55]: what happened to the
crew of the Scopuli.
$. [13:28.30]: This is the ship.
$. [13:31.26]: The one that
killed the Cant.
$. [13:36.44]: It has to be.
$. [13:46.41]: I'm going to
check Engineering.
$. [13:48.24]: See what shape
the reactor's in.
$. [13:50.33]: I'll go with you. Hey, Amos,
take the flight deck.
$. [13:53.41]: We need to check the
ship's systems and logs.
$. [13:55.66]: Take him with you.
$. [13:56.83]: He'll be useful.
$. [14:04.46]: Come along,
tweety bird.
$. [14:08.34]: AMOS: Flight deck's
gotta be upstairs.
$. [14:10.10]: After you.
$. [14:13.43]: ALEX: (OVER RADIO) You guys
need more eyes over there.
$. [14:15.18]: Let me see what
I can give you.
$. [14:19.10]: All right, sweetheart,
what do you got for me?
$. [14:26.45]: I think that'll
do just fine.
$. [14:28.61]: (HATCH OPENING)
$. [14:54.43]: HOLDEN: You ever think about them?
NAOMI: Who?
$. [14:57.02]: McDowell.
$. [14:58.10]: Byers, Paj, Ade.
$. [15:02.40]: I suppose I've been
trying not to.
$. [15:05.53]: Didn't know any
of them that well.
$. [15:08.86]: I didn't exactly sign onto
the Cant to make friends.
$. [15:12.53]: Why did you
sign on to the Cant'?
$. [15:16.08]: So I wouldn't have to have
conversations like this one.
$. [15:20.83]: You've picked a
strange time to be chatty.
$. [15:24.17]: We live in strange times.
$. [15:27.84]: (CHUCKLING)
$. [15:29.55]: What?
$. [15:32.18]: Remember McDowell's
glass cats?
$. [15:35.68]: Those figurines
in his office.
$. [15:37.68]: Yeah.
$. [15:39.39]: NIXON“: One time, late shift,
$. [15:41.52]: I caught him, like,
petting them.
$. [15:43.11]: (CHUCKLING)
$. [15:44.90]: He said he was cleaning them, and that
they were investment grade antiques.
$. [15:49.07]: I really wish I'd
gotten that story.
$. [16:06.34]: All the airlocks
are open.
$. [16:09.63]: No doubt about it, this
ship was vented on purpose.
$. [16:15.76]: Hangar bay's empty, too.
$. [16:17.76]: Should be a short-range shuttle
parked there. But it ain't.
$. [16:24.06]: Folks, I do believe
somebody got away.
$. [16:37.24]: Flight deck is clear.
$. [16:58.10]: Looks like we got a safe.
$. [17:05.77]: With something in it.
$. [17:06.98]: Great. Another
goddamn safe.
$. [17:11.78]: Naomi, there's battery backup
on the control panel.
$. [17:16.53]: All systems green. Do you want
me to fire up the reactor?
$. [17:18.78]: AMOS: This'll go quicker
if we have some lights.
$. [17:22.45]: NAOMI: (OVER RADIO)
Yeah, just warm it up.
$. [17:26.63]: (POWERING UP)
$. [17:43.81]: NAOMI: Someone cut
through the hatch.
$. [18:04.04]: The reactor was
shut down properly.
$. [18:07.21]: So why did someone
need to break in to do it?
$. [18:11.34]: HOLDEN: Uh...
$. [18:14.38]: Naomi.
$. [18:28.60]: What the hell is that?
$. [18:43.70]: Tycho Station pinged the Nathan
Hale approximately four hours ago.
$. [18:47.83]: They wanted to know why a UNN battleship
was headed straight for them.
$. [18:50.88]: What were they told?
$. [18:52.42]: SOUTHER: A plausible story
about reactor malfunctions
$. [18:55.13]: and an urgent need
for temporary dock.
$. [18:58.05]: We don't think
they bought it.
$. [19:00.05]: Doesn't matter.
$. [19:01.22]: We'll be on their
doorstep in three days
$. [19:02.76]: and that's not enough
time for Fred Johnson
$. [19:04.60]: to dismantle and hide an entire
stealth tech program, is it?
$. [19:07.81]: Yeah, that's assuming that they
had it in the first place.
$. [19:10.73]: We'll find something.
Sir,
$. [19:12.61]: if we board and
search that station...
$. [19:14.40]: Tycho is an Earth corp,
we have jurisdiction.
$. [19:16.90]: SOUTHER: The Belters
won't see it that way.
$. [19:18.70]: They'll think we're lying and
the OPA will make sure of it.
$. [19:21.03]: It's done. Moving on.
$. [19:25.24]: James Holden.
$. [19:26.49]: We learn nothing
from a dead man.
$. [19:28.08]: Secretary-General's orders.
$. [19:29.41]: You'll turn him
into a martyr.
$. [19:30.87]: James Holden will be killed in
random street violence on Eros.
$. [19:33.79]: The murder capital of the Belt.
(COMMS BEEPING)
$. [19:35.42]: Wrong place
and wrong time.
$. [19:43.43]: Avasarala: What now?
$. [19:46.43]: Frank DeGraaf was found dead
in his home this morning.
$. [19:52.06]: He took his own life.
$. [19:55.19]: Jesus.
$. [19:59.36]: Errinwright: I'm so sorry.
$. [20:02.41]: We can finish later.
$. [20:04.12]: We can finish now.
$. [20:19.46]: We're going in
for a closer look.
$. [20:21.72]: Alex, did your drone
turn anything up?
$. [20:24.26]: ALEX: (OVER RADIO) Negative.
$. [20:25.30]: There's not another
soul on board.
$. [20:27.76]: No bodies,
no people. Nothing.
$. [20:47.95]: (SOFT SNARLING)
$. [21:01.46]: I could check
the logs for you.
$. [21:04.22]: I'll check the logs.
$. [21:07.39]: Can't have you sneakin' into comms
and calling someone you shouldn't.
$. [21:11.85]: Feel free to try, though.
$. [21:15.48]: (SIGHS)
$. [21:49.39]: Have you ever seen
anything like this before?
$. [21:53.35]: Nothing even close.
$. [21:56.73]: Maybe it's
stealth-tech stuff.
$. [21:59.56]: A nano-fluid spill
$. [22:00.90]: that froze when the
ship was vented.
$. [22:18.58]: The ship's called
the "Ann-you-bis."
$. [22:22.59]: "Ann-you-bis"?
$. [22:24.09]: Spelled A-N-U-B-I-S?
$. [22:26.42]: AMOS: Uh-huh.
$. [22:30.43]: It's pronounced
"Anoobis."
$. [22:32.51]: Egyptian God of the dead.
$. [22:37.98]: (SIGHS)
$. [22:39.23]: "Ann-you-bis"
works too.
$. [22:45.44]: ALEX: (OVER RADIO)
Okay, people, let's review.
$. [22:46.86]: Right, so the crew of this
bad-ass ship boards the Scopuli,
$. [22:50.74]: uses it as bait
to nuke the Cant,
$. [22:53.62]: then spaces the crew except for Lionel
Polanski, who somehow survives.
$. [22:59.04]: Gets control, and then
$. [23:01.13]: he powers down,
vents the ship
$. [23:04.17]: and then leaves a nuclear
missile-ed, state-of-the-art
$. [23:06.80]: stealth fighter
tied to a rock.
$. [23:10.80]: That make sense
to anybody?
$. [23:12.39]: The ship's in perfect condition,
why would he just leave?
$. [23:15.35]: We're missing something here.
$. [23:17.18]: Hey, guys-.
$. [23:18.98]: I just accessed
the navs.
$. [23:20.81]: Whoever was on this ship
was headed to Eros from...
$. [23:23.77]: ...Phoebe Station.
$. [23:25.44]: Phoebe?
$. [23:28.61]: Lopez said they found
everyone on Phoebe dead.
$. [23:30.95]: Some toxic spill
or something.
$. [23:32.74]: Maybe this is what
he was talking about.
$. [23:37.00]: I'm getting a real
bad feeling about this.
$. [23:40.92]: (POWERING UP)
$. [23:42.50]: Holden, behind you!
$. [23:44.50]: (SNARLING)
$. [23:46.00]: Jesus!
Back off!
$. [23:49.88]: We're coming in.
$. [23:56.85]: AMOS: Naomi, what's going on?
$. [24:02.15]: I think it's absorbing
energy from the reactor.
$. [24:04.23]: I'm shutting
everything down.
$. [24:08.15]: (POWERS DOWN)
$. [24:11.11]: What happened?
$. [24:12.49]: NAOMI: (OVER RADIO) We have
to kill the power. Stand by.
$. [24:14.07]: (POWERING DOWN)
$. [24:20.87]: (BREATHING HEAVILY) For a second,
it felt like that thing was...
$. [24:24.38]: It was alive.
Yeah.
$. [24:27.71]: Amos,
$. [24:29.21]: cut out the computer cores.
It's time to leave.
$. [24:36.05]: Alex. We've encountered
a possible biohazard,
$. [24:39.14]: we need full
decontamination.
$. [24:40.64]: Wasn't gonna let y'all
back aboard without it.
$. [24:43.56]: NAOMI: We should
stow these in the cargo bay,
$. [24:45.27]: in case we need
to jettison them quick.
$. [24:51.32]: Get us out of here.
$. [25:10.88]: Kenzo: You're going
to Eros, aren't you?
$. [25:13.22]: Aren't you?
$. [25:15.01]: If this "Lionel Polanski" is going
to be anywhere, it's gonna be there.
$. [25:18.55]: I know that place.
$. [25:21.27]: I got hooks in systems
all over Eros.
$. [25:24.64]: Let me help you find him.
$. [25:27.48]: And if I do,
you let me walk.
$. [25:29.40]: HOLDEN: Okay.
$. [25:30.94]: When we find Polanski.
$. [25:33.15]: Not before.
$. [25:40.28]: Anybody object to us
turning that ship into scrap?
$. [25:42.66]: Hell no.
Well, l...
$. [25:43.96]: Anybody except you.
$. [25:45.79]: Do it.
$. [25:48.13]: Look,you
control that ship.
$. [25:50.42]: You have a bargaining chip. Why would
you destroy something you control?
$. [25:53.80]: Because that ship
is a weapon,
$. [25:55.84]: and that thing on it
felt like a weapon, too.
$. [25:57.64]: And I don't think Fred Johnson, or Earth,
or Mars, or anybody should have it.
$. [26:01.93]: (COMPUTER BEEPING)
Torpedoes armed and ready.
$. [26:07.98]: Fire.
$. [26:10.65]: (BUTTON BEEPS)

$. [28:14.06]: And I'm just trying
to make sure, you know,
$. [28:15.86]: did she fly it here, or
did she maybe exchange it
$. [28:19.24]: you know, for some other
goods, maybe to some low life.
$. [28:25.20]: We don't give
out that info.

$. [29:38.19]: That's the biggest
surprise of the night.
$. [29:39.94]: Oh, I was chasing
down a lead.
$. [29:42.03]: Judging by the footprint
on that dock master's chest,
$. [29:44.36]: I'd say you were
stomping on a lead.
$. [29:47.32]: Why are you on Eros?

$. [31:09.57]: Anyway, I told you,
this ain't the old days.
$. [31:12.24]: This new security contract.
$. [31:14.70]: These CPM guys are a pack
of criminals with badges.
$. [31:18.29]: They shut down access
to all the public cameras
$. [31:20.08]: while they
revamp the system.
$. [31:22.42]: They're just setting up their shakedown
network while nobody's watching.
$. [31:26.55]: (SIGHS) Anyway, what
do you know about this kid?
$. [31:29.01]: Why she's on Eros?
$. [31:30.51]: Trust your gut before your
head gets in the way.
$. [31:33.55]: (CHUCKLES) Yeah, yeah,
I used to spout off
$. [31:36.18]: all kinds of bullshit
back in the day.
$. [31:38.18]: Like how the road to hell
is paved with good intentions.
$. [31:43.48]: Look, when I got kicked off the
force, I gave you that hat
$. [31:45.40]: so you'd keep your head, not
make the same mistakes I did.
$. [31:49.49]: Oh, I must have forgot
it back on Ceres.
$. [31:52.99]: Yeah, you forgot
it back on Ceres.
$. [31:54.53]: And now you're
following this girl
$. [31:55.62]: out to the ass-crack of the solar
system, huh? Get yourself fired.
$. [32:00.16]: Yeah, what in your head
even tells you
$. [32:01.50]: that this girl's
lookin' to get rescued?
$. [32:03.33]: She could be
hard-core OPA,
$. [32:05.80]: who helped bomb those ships
to start our goddamn war.
$. [32:08.51]: Who'll put a bullet in your head
the minute you knock on her door.
$. [32:11.43]: Yeah. Yeah, she might.
$. [32:15.68]: But you're still gonna pull
on that thread, aren't you?
$. [32:19.18]: No matter what I say,
$. [32:22.02]: no matter what you unravel?
$. [32:31.53]: I believe in her.
$. [32:37.28]: That's all I got.

$. [32:45.71]: (CHUCKLES SOFTLY)
$. [32:47.71]: (SIGHS)
$. [32:49.71]: Think I'm crazy?
$. [32:55.72]: (SIGHS)
$. [32:58.14]: It's probably gonna be my ass
when they check the logs.
$. [33:01.02]: I knew you wouldn't
take "no" for an answer.
$. [33:06.94]: "Lionel Polanski."
That's the name she used
$. [33:08.69]: when she registered
the shuttle.
$. [33:10.44]: Someone with that name is
registered at the Blue Falcon.
$. [33:12.40]: What's that?
Where is it?
$. [33:13.57]: It's a flophouse
core-side.
$. [33:14.95]: But it's not
a good place.
$. [33:16.24]: I'll talk to you
later, buddy.
$. [33:18.66]: (SIGHS)
$. [33:26.79]: MAN: (OVER RADIO) Sir, the
Nathan Hale has just flipped
$. [33:28.79]: and is decelerating
towards us at full burn.
$. [33:32.30]: They've repeated their
request to dock for repairs,
$. [33:34.43]: claiming a reactor
malfunction.
$. [33:36.05]: But we believe they're deliberately
altering their drive signature.
$. [33:39.51]: What's their ETA?
$. [33:41.27]: Roughly two days, sir.
$. [33:43.81]: Keep me posted.
$. [33:47.31]: FRED: You said you cracked it.
$. [33:48.44]: Hope it's not a letter to a wife.
It's not.

record of the Donnager battle,

$. [33:54.95]: with full sensor
logs and analysis.
$. [33:57.11]: This must've come
directly from the CIC.
$. [33:59.70]: They also got hi-res images
of the attacking ships.
$. [34:02.87]: Were they able
to identify them?
$. [34:04.58]: Not from what
I can see here.
$. [34:06.33]: But they were able to collect
highly detailed drive signatures.
$. [34:10.54]: Well, they did fly closer to those
ships than anyone else in the system.
$. [34:15.63]: Unfortunately, for them.
$. [34:18.80]: You're going to want
to see this for yourself.
$. [34:25.64]: So what are you
going to do now?
$. [34:28.27]: (SIGHS)
$. [34:30.61]: This place used to be
the jewel of the Belt.
$. [34:33.15]: I wish I could've
seen it in its heyday.
$. [34:35.32]: It's not a bad
district, though.
$. [34:36.57]: I'm tellin' you, if you guys like
okra-infused tank-grown ribs,
$. [34:39.82]: there's this place on
Level Six that's pretty...

your word hole.

$. [36:55.21]: Call up for you?
No.
$. [36:56.54]: No, it's a surprise thing.
Thank you.
$. [37:17.48]: Maybe I should go up on my own.
Not freak the guy out.

NotesEdit

  • The episode title was revealed on the show's IMDB page in November or December 2014.
  • The title refers to the act of salvage.
  • The Law of Salvage is a concept in maritime law which states that a person who recovers another person's ship or cargo after peril or loss at sea is entitled to a reward commensurate with the value of the property so saved.
  • The film crew were hit with a flu virus that also infected dozens of cast and crew members during filming of the return to the Roci on a Friday night. The illness was so nasty, some of them were hospitalized.[1]
  • Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham, who both wrote The Expanse book series, made cameo appearances in this episode.[2]
  • 'CPM' in CPM Security in the novel, stands for "carne por la machina" – meat for the machine.[1]
  • After he was affected by another flu in a month while filming the Blue Falcon lobby shootout, Steven Strait refused to delay production by working through the illness on one of the most challenging days of the season.[1]
  • On the "Berth Assignments" board that Miller looks over when he arrives on Eros, why are so many of the "arriving flights" (including Anubis 1A) listed as originating from Eros? Is this an error? Since he is on Eros, it doesn't seem to make sense that so many flights arriving on Eros are also originating from Eros ...
