    Seems like a strange move looking at the ending.
    In the last books, there are huge time jumps.
    Difficult to do with current actors as everyone are getting old. 50-60ish.
    Yeh i read all the books and sub-books. I know.
    The entire Expanse universe has huge potential for more sci-fi especially now that the soap opera Marco show is over (huge mistake in my opinion focusing so much on that).

    The TV Show failed to highlight how this entire rebellion was just a distraction by Duarte to throw focus away from their little power grab.
    The whole reason they actually broke away from Mars was when a solar system was found with something that could be Shipyards.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    And they failed to portray Marco as in any way competent or charismatic leader, as shown I doubt anyone would have followed him.

    The books do a much better job of getting into the frictions within the Free Navy / belters that slowly happen. But that would have meant to cast yet another bulk of actors to portray these 'lil scenes so I guess instead they tried to (and failed, IMHO) to put it all into that Marco relations storyline.

    Given what the outcome of the Laconia / Duarte storyline is, the belter revolution pales in comparison in the grand scheme of things. To me, that has been the more interesting story.

    I think that they never managed to make the Marcos Inaros story line work, and they didn't have a dual storyline (e.g. a proto molecule story) to fall back on to lessen the impact of that. Season 6 also seemed constrained to me in terms of shooting locations (and obviously number of episodes), might have been lower budget, covid measures or both? If it was budget then that would make follow-up movies less likely.

    Not a great end to the series, but I still quite enjoyed the show overall.
