    Just a "grassy" field IIRC. But yeah, no canyons. Also I'm not on board yet with changing the story so Naomi suddenly starts walking around on a planet with 1.1g.

    They've pretty much ignored the "belters can't function in high gravity" thing, it seems. They started out caring about it, but then sort of forgot somewhere around the middle of Leviathan Wakes.

    They seem to be fairly consistent for Martians, though.

    tbh she's been crew on a human/martian ship for years.
    They have probably burned harder than whats normal on belter ships.

    The books are pretty explicit on this. Belters have a really rough time on a full G or more while not on the juice. Naomi refuses to ever go down to earth to meet James's parents for this reason. She is in the ship when it lands on Ilus but urges Alex to get back up as soon as possible.

    Once they gave up casting 6' plus stick figures in every belter role, it's kinda hard to justify making a big deal about their reaction to gravity.

    I actually think they are trying to make a point about how difficult it is for belters to live on planets by having Naomi walk around, so we can actually see the struggle. It's an important point that sets the stage for later conflicts in the series. Plus I don't mind them changing the story a bit and have the full crew on Illus instead of just Amos and Holden. Naomi and Alex don't get that much to do otherwise, until the end.

    I kinda hoped Bobby would be on Illus too, but it looks like she will be with Aversarala this season.

    I suppose 5 more months isn't that long to wait considering that we get it all at once.

    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    The trailer has Naomi doing a lot of excercises... the books imply that the belters who are on the way to the planet spend a lot of time taking drugs and working out.

    Oh it's certainly possible for belters, the original settlers of Ilus are mostly belter refugees of Ganymede. But book Naomi most certainly did not want to do that.

    Trailer shows the medical screen behind her that shows the extra bone and muscle and heart mass she has added.

    Oh, cool. I'm already rocking Steven Strait's facial hair. Maybe I'll dress up as him for Halloween instead of Ron Burgundy.

    Too many beards.

    But I’ve always thought Strait was a bit young to play Holden. Helps with that, a bit.
