The Rocinante finally gets a proper space battle

The Rocinante finally gets a proper space battle! Season 2 of The Expanse started off with a big bang! The crew puts together a raiding party and boards a space station.. after fighting tooth and nail against a big bad stealth ship!

Here are some highlights:

The amount of thought the production team put into the space battles is staggering..

case in point -
Even in the future armor plating is still too heavy to have on a space craft.. so when going into battle, depressiorise and store your air in tanks.. and cross your fingers as bullets swiss cheese the ship

We finally get to see the full maneuverability and gun capabilities of the Rocinante(and crew)


The rag tag team of belters had to patch together these DIY Boarding Pods.. and they worked pretty well! Complete with cable anchor system and blasting door 

Oh and I just discovered that #Syfy has an official #Thingiverse page with downloadable print files for stuff from their shows - #expanse wow!!
