Series: The Expanse #0.2
Publisher: Orbit Books
Released: November 27, 2012
The Expanse, premiering in December 2015 on Syfy, is based on The New York Times best selling book series by James S.A. Corey. Set two hundred years in the future, where man has colonized the outer asteroid belt, The Expanse follows the case of a missing girl that brings together a hardened detective and a rogue ship captain in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history. "Drive" highlights a key moment in The Expanse universe whose ramifications set the foundation for the show.
Another entertaining little short story, though this one almost seems too short to justify its own Goodreads-entry.
It’s an origin story of the piece of technology making it possible to efficiently travel between planets, which is kind of a pre-requisite for the rest of the story taking place. It’s interesting as an addendum to the story, and well-written, but even for a short story it just seems a little too. It has the feeling of there being a little more to the story that could also have been told.
