Two hundred years in the future, in a fully colonized solar system, police detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), who was born in the asteroid belt, is given the assignment to find a missing young woman; Julie Mao (Florence Faivre).

As news of the attack spreads throughout the system, the incident's flow-on threatens to destabilize already tenuous relations between Earth, Mars and The Belt. Far away from the struggles in deep space, on Earth, Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), a powerful United Nations executive and diplomat, works to prevent war between Earth and Mars by any means. Soon, the 3 find out the missing woman and the ice freighter's fate are part of a vast covert conspiracy which threatens all humanity. Written by nano_tech

Solid, very solid.
14 December 2015 | by (Salt Lake City, UT) – See all my reviews

I'm a first-degree Atari-generation black belt, with advanced studies in impressionable dialogue, good character dev, and I'm always a sucker for a good story. I don't watch TV, with the exception of the occasional good series, typically at least a couple of years into the reviews; I give this a great, positive review...reviews ftw, yeah I trust you people.

Obviously this is a first impression of brand-new series I wouldn't even have normally watched, but YouTube started playing it in my browser (1st episode is available online legit) and by way of my laptop, this good story literally fell into my lap. The characters quickly develop with likability, and also some antagonistically Achilles' heals. The story appears sound and keeps one's interests and gives a more believable context to future space than many hit SciFi movies (i.e the likes of Total Recall, Elysium...) I've never been a SciFi devout, but I anxiously await what comes next from this little gem of a find.
