The Expanse is an American science fiction television series developed by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, based on the series of novels of the same name by James S.A. Corey.
The series is set in a future where humanity has colonised the Solar System. It follows a disparate band of antiheroes – United Nations Security Council member Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), police detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), ship’s officer James Holden (Steven Strait) and his crew – as they unwittingly unravel and place themselves at the centre of a conspiracy which threatens the system’s fragile state of Cold War.
A Belter faction attacks a science vessel near Venus, killing all aboard. The Rocinante is at Tycho for long-term repairs. Naomi gets word that her son is on the asteroid Pallas and makes plans to go alone. Holden is contacted by Monica Stuart about protomolecule research she’s heard about. Amos is going to Earth to investigate the death of an old friend, and Alex is headed to Mars to try and make amends with his family. Bobbie works with Avasarala to investigate Martian weapons trafficking.
