Did You Know?


The Holden crew fly to a certain set of coordinates. At these coordinates they find an asteroid. Asteroids however are not fixed points in space but are circling the sun, just like planets do. The crew would likely have found only empty space at a fixed set of coordinates. See more »

Best Episode Yet
20 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

8th episode of "The Expanse" - "Salvage" was the most involving episode yet on this show. I really like this show overall because of very deep and rich sci-fi story. I love sci-fi stories and "The Expanse" has a great one.

So finally the dots started to connect more and more in episode 8th. Now there some new interesting questions and i will definitely will check out the remaining 2 episodes of season 1.

Overall, i was glued to the screen during this episode, which is i think was the most involving one. Some of the stories have finally connected and hopefully this show will deliver more.
