So... they didn't really do anything with the Mormon ship did they. I guess that's set-up for events in later seasons?
That's my guess.
Also what was the little pill that Lopez (the Martian guy on the Donnagher) was taking when he was interrogating people? I guess it was some kind of intelligence enhancer or something to make him sharper?
And in the end, were the mystery stealth ships actually OPA?
No one knows.
I recently started reading Leviathan Wakes
, which is the first book in the series. While I'm only 15% of the way in (It's 561 pages!), all of the chapter titles deal with Holden and Miller. Chrisjen, the somewhat ruthless UN woman, isn't listed at all. Apparently she doesn't enter the books until Caliban's War
, book 2. I believe that they're running all of the storylines as they happen. That's why we're also seeing the Mormon ship.
So far, the book, Leviathan Wakes
anyway, and TV show are in sync, but the characters are slightly different. In the book, Miller seems a tad bit more sober and a little less...odd. Holden seems to have more respect from Naomi and Amos.
Season 2 starts Wednesday, Feb 1st.
