The epic, immersive universe of THE EXPANSE has captured the imaginations of science fiction fans around the globe for over a decade – first in the Hugo and Dragon Award winning novel series and then in a critically acclaimed, Hugo and Saturn Award winning television series (now streaming on Amazon Prime) – instantly entering the highest echelon of genre-defining sci-fi. But there is one chapter of THE EXPANSE saga that has never been chronicled or revealed… until now!
