Watch: “The Expanse”

Standard

I love “The Expanse” on SyFy. It’s a movie quality production, featuring researched science fx within an action-thriller plotted into a tight serial with plenty of suspense and a rich multi-world backdrop. There are strong performances from a cast that is diverse in gender and race. Among many strong performances, DOMINIQUE TIPPER stands out as a real no nonsense gangsta space engineer…

14. Naomi Nagata from the Expanse: I’m so happy that this character exists; she is everything! I just finished the first season of the show and I’m not ashamed to say that I’m probably Naomi’s number one fan. She’s a Belter (born and raised amongst the asteroids of our solar system), has multiple degrees, and is a spaceship engineer.  In other words, she’s the brains of the show, using her skills to get her comrades out of sticky situations. She also has an authoritative quality to her; what she says goes. Naomi is highly logical, and is the voice of reason in a group comprised of an idealistic captain, a self-doubting pilot, and a trigger-happy sociopath. I can’t wait to see more of this Mohawk rocking, spacefaring maven as she continues to kick ass intellectually.
