What's on your mind?
Did Naomi inject herself with Proto-molecule to survive her air lock to air lock jump?
Calling the Razorback Screaming Firehawks confused me. Is that an in-joke one should not correct? Or am I missing something completely?
Hey Expanse Community!
What are your thoughts on the premiere episode? And with the sixth season being the final season, with four books left to adapt, what do you hope to see adapted later in the season? Let us know in the comments!
Season 5 synopsis:
Season five of the series picks up as multitudes of humans leave the solar system in search of new homes and vast fortunes on the earth-like worlds beyond the alien Ring, and a heavy price for centuries of exploitation of the Belt finally comes due and a reckoning is at hand. For the crew of the Rocinante and the leaders of the Inner Planets and the Belt, the past and present converge, bringing forth personal challenges that have wide-reaching repercussions throughout the Solar System.
The NY Times posted a review of the series: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/15/arts/television/review-the-expanse.html?action=click&module=Features&pgtype=Homepage
My reaction: I have a mixed reaction to this mixed review. Full disclosure: I'm a rabid "The Expanse" fan and have been bemoaning its neglect among the media for the longest time. So, I'm glad the show gets some mention here, although I don't agree with a number of the opinions given by Mr. Hale. It is interesting to read something from someone who is not so wrapped up in the series as I've been, but I still think some of the criticisms are unfair and inaccurate. Omission by dismissal of Dominique Tipper's outstanding performance as Naomi Nagata is particularly egregious to me. Actually, it's very difficult to choose a favorite between all of the great actors, with their interpretation through great writing and directing. No-one being perfect is one of the best things about the writing, with even its anti-villains as well as anti-heroes. After watching all the previous seasons twice (and some episodes more than once--particularly my favorite, "Immolation"), yesterday I watched the first three of latest. It seemed a little off, being somewhat fragmented because of having separated the great interaction between some major characters. But I've already read all of the books published so far, so I keep some things of entertainment value in mind as I go along. I also still realize that the plot structure is ultimately so enjoyable to me because it's like being given pieces of a puzzle that continue to get put together and eventually form a very great picture.
Regarding the use of the picture of Cas Anvar as part of headlining the article: It seems that the person responsible for the image was unaware of the trouble, especially as there was no mention of it in the body of the review. The whole thing has been unfortunate and even sad about that actor and the implications for the character. (See my previous comment in Fandom.)
I'm very, very behind when it comes to some news. I've seen good/bad news in several ways that likely other fans have already experienced. The good news is that "The Expanse" is renewed for a sixth season. The bad news is double: It will be the last season, and Cas Anvar won't be in it. On top of that, I just learned (late Nov. 2020) about the trouble that Anvar had gotten into--that was reported last summer! I think it was very appropriately handled, though I'm stunned about the impact on the character. What I've very much appreciated about the series is that the bond (no pun intended) between the characters seemed to be strengthened by the bond between the actors who play them. Also, Anvar, as is well known to fans, was so helpful in the drive to save the series. The news about him has left me shaken, so I'll just have to separate the character from the person. Also, I just hope that, yet again, the brilliant writers will find some wonderfully imaginative way to handle it in the sixth season. I've read all the books, and from how things go in the latest one, I'm thinking of how the Kamal character might be managed. That book kept me wondering and even concerned while reading it, but then it came through in a fantastically creative way, totally consistent with the arc of the story line and its characters.

I haven't found a browser where it works correctly... something major is always broken.
Please reply to this thread if you see any problems that are new, since UCP could be the culprit.
Saying "new" implies we had some before, but we didn't so they are the only ones as well...
Some of the things you can bug them to do:
Undelete a pages
Delete article comments
Change protection levels and edit protected pages
Overwrite existing files (reupload)
Not create redirects from source pages when moving/renaming pages
View deleted history entries, without their associated text
View deleted text and changes between deleted revisions
They also now have the unfortunate responsibility of helping fix all the problems after the UCP conversion, but I'm sure they'll have fixes, I didn't think about.
So for issues above, bug them and not me!
Hello Expanse Wiki community! I'm Marcus, the Wiki Manager from the TV/Movies vertical. I'd like to update this community on a change that will affect all communities.
As many of you may know, Fandom has been migrating communities to the new Unified Community Platform (UCP for short). This wiki is scheduled to be ported over in the coming weeks. For those unfamiliar with UCP, please read this blog.
If you have further questions about the change, please leave a comment below. I'll do my best to get them answered. I'll check back in once the community has been ported over to make sure everything is fine!
