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.
As Rocinante finds itself surrounded by Free Navy ships, Drummer moves against Karal to save it from destruction; she loses members of her crew in protest, and Inaros executes Drummer’s associate in retaliation. On Chetzemoka, Naomi breaks a pressure valve, putting the ship into a spin to prevent docking. As Alex attempts a docking manoeuvre with the Razorback anyway, Naomi flees Chetzemoka in her suit and attempts to warn them off; Bobbie rescues Naomi before her life support gives out, but Alex dies from a stroke during the high-g encounter. Rocinante’s crew reunites on Luna, where Amos tricks Holden into giving Clarissa safe refuge and Bobbie joins newly-elected Avasarala’s team, as Chrisjen signals she intends to use the Rocinante’s crew as a role model for winning the war against Inaros. Free Navy ships, aided by Medina Station and rogue Martian warships commanded by Admiral Sauveterre attack and destroy the joint Earth and Mars garrison at the Ring. As the MCRN Barkeith transits the second gate en route to Laconia, a world beyond one of the gates, the entities that destroyed the Ring Builders begin to awaken and devour the ship, while an alien superstructure orbiting Laconia suddenly blooms with the protomolecule.
