In the books it details the length of time it takes for ships to travel between places. Events that look like they happen within days really happen over months and years. The events of the first 6 books happen over a 10-12 year period. Books 7 jumps 30 years into the future, 8 and 9 a few years after that. The Rossi took Clarissa back to earth for trial, during that time, due to her actions on the Behemoth in helping Holden and the crew, she was not "locked away", but worked alongside Amos as an Engineer caring for and looking after the Rossi systems. (That is something that is glossed over in the series, a ship needs constant maintence.) They develop a close friendship, not a sexual relationship, but a type of marriage/family one. Both are what you call "damaged" by their life experiences so have a connection. Same can be said for the relationship between Bobbie and Alex.What does the book say about their relationship and Amos reason?
I honestly think you should read the books, they are superb, and knowing the story hasn't affected my enjoyment of the series, as the merging of characters, slimming down of events etc has been well done and does not alter the main story at all.
They made a point of saying that as Martians they could withstand a greater acceleration than the Belters, but he was aware that the Belters would know that too. I assumed that the ship is capable of greater acceleration, except that they would black-out. A missile, having no human component and being lighter in mass, has no such limits.What I don't get is how that torpedo was able to accelerate so fast?
Likewise. A terrific character.Drummer is my favourite character in the series and she deserves more screen time.
