    I liked episode 3. But they seem to be running to many story lines to do any of them justice

    The new food tech could go somewhere?

    And can I have a spin off series of space Pirate Drummer?

    And could we please not just have 6 episodes? The "filler " xray Bonus Material is so cool. I could watch it for hours.

    8-10 episodes should have been the minimum for season 6. And please just wait 5 years and do books 7-9.*fanboy*
    I mean 10 years would be really cool time jump and make up wise for the story, but I need more seasons.

    Strange dogs novella. Explains future books and duerte's insanity/striving for immortality.
    They repair "things" (everything) and make it better.
    The kids appear in book 7 as prisoners/ Experiments and haven't aged a day.
    See my spoiler end to book 9 further upthread

    The dogs are protomolecule repair "robots" and live in the caves. No one realizes that they can make everything immortal/repaired.(not actually them, but they carry things to the repair pools) the kids die and return changed and are imprisoned by the government while duerte is building the laconia empire built on proto molecule tech and superior space craft.

    The story takes place on the planet of the martian renegades.

    OK, wow
    How the fuck are they going to cover that appropriately in the remaining episodes?

    Not at all, I guess. I think they'll just give us the foundations of the rise of laconia and the proto molecule meddling through that perspective and we meet the MAD scientist Cortez again when he gets the kids? They won't do the time jump to book 7 in the series. Or maybe at the end as a teaser because why would they show us the massive ring station rail guns otherwise?

    Edit: And we don't see the rise of the empire in the books either. They just show up through their ring gate 30 years later (in book 7) and conquer the galaxy.

    Holden needs a sandwich or two. Guy is looking wraith-like.

    The actor did that for the role to Show how stressed holden is. That's commitment.

    And nice Comeback for her scared crewmember.

    Telltale is making a game which might be exactly that.

    For the second to last episode they sure spent a lot of time on people’s feelings. Way too much to resolve in the last episode

    Yeah; methinks they're actually setting us up to demand that they come up with a 7th and final season, which, surprise, surprise - they just happen to have already started making!!

    The presentation of the Loconia situation alone is impossible to resolve cleanly in one episode and screams for further development. Marcos, on the other hand .......

    Got to give them credit. I’m not satisfied and want more

    Or maybe I get pissed and stop watching.

    I'm starting to think Camina Drummer is the star of the show.

    Caught up just in time for the finale!

    The show's been great but I think it peaked in Season 3. I too agree that there's no way they can wrap this up neatly. It won't be the Lost finale, I hope, but there's going to be a lot of loose ends. I'm mostly just hoping that disarming that torpedo serves a purpose in the end, like how not killing Gollum ultimately saved everything in LOTR.

    I suspect that they won't even try to tie it up. I suspect that they're hoping that at least another season gets the green light.

    I miss Ashford, that guy was great. I want to see Marco die just for his sake.

    That’s one way to end it.
    Bummed there won’t be a season 7, too many questions left unanswered.
    Definitely one of the more captivating sci-fi series and probably in my top 3 overall series.

    The ongoing bombardment bugged me, too. Also, the damage from the the initial stealth rocks seemed pretty disproportionate to the stated yields, which were in the 1-10 MT range. Definitely destructive, but nothing that would create a tsunami that devastates the east coast or a shockwave that levels the prison.

    It bugged me, but we never actually saw her take the full tour from the safe space with air. They can't be that forgetful...
    There has to be two airlocks, one from space into the command deck and another from the command deck to the rest of the hull that's unpressurised.

    I laughed so hard at that, it was awesome. Back in season 1 there was a scene where the detonators for mining charges were camping lanterns.

    I just finished watching the season 6 finally

    It was well done

    Will there be a season 7?

    I’m not currently that interested in alien’s that bring things back to life.

    And whoever said it. Holden looks like he has an eating disorder or terminal disease. - vibes to the actor
