    The Science of The Expanse

    What do you think of the physics and other sciences in the world of The Expanse? How realistic is it?

    I like the rear mounted weapons on ships. That is kind of realistic, if not counter intuitive.

    I'm kind of surprised they haven't turned that one on it's head and showed that a ship pointing it's nose at you isn't a bigger and more existential threat, a la that wacky moment in one of the recent Star Wars films.

    We did discuss that in the main Expanse thread.

    More realism than a typical Sci-Fi show but less than, say, real life. Especially beyond the first season. It has some trappings of hard SF but not the substance.
