Critical underlying elements of The Expanse series is the Epstein Drive Not only is it the concept that makes constant travel around the solar system feasible the way it functions is an integral art of the stories The force of acceleration and what it does to the human occupants of the ships always has to be accounted for and it s been used to great dramatic effect repeatedly in the series What this story does is explain how that drive came to be and it also acts as uick rimer on how this was a key moment in The Expanse timeline that sets up all the conflicts between Earth Mars and the Belt that were already established in the first bookSo it s a solid reuel set up that sets up the structure of the series It s also connects emotionally by telling us about Solomon and what happened to him after he fired that engine up the first time And it s free Yes This IS almost the exact same story that was aired on the second season of Expanse about the discovery of the ever burning ropulsion I actually read this last year but never added it to Goodreads Seeing as today s episode of The Expanse is going to adapt this short story made it feel like a good moment to do so I was initially considering to give this a 5 star rating because even if short and telling a story that is already art of it Mama Ds pasta pizza present in the main series that ending made me cheer for a future I know I llrobably never see This is a free short story marketed as a The Expected One (Magdalene Line Trilogy, preuel to the Expanse It is available here areuel I don t really find this very useful It gives a bit of background on the Earth and Mars division and the creation Epstein drive If this is meant for eople unfamiliar with the series this won t really give them much of a backgroundHowever for fans of the series already this offers some nice little tidbits of world buildingOverall this is well written like the rest and is a super fast read With it being available for free if you re a fan of the series no reason not to give it a uick read. Ace 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.
In The Expanse universe I mean it s retty much what allows the Aubrey Beardsley, The Man And His Work possibility of space travel in the series and unlike Gods of Risk which in my opinion was just awfully boring Drive was or less up to the standard of storytellingrovided in The Butcher of Anderson Station short story In such a short len This is a companion short story for the book series and was actually Jazz Ukulele part of an episode in the TV show as well Therefore I already knew what would happen but the writing style is nevertheless superb and I found myself on the edge of my seat completely forgetting that I already knew how this would end lolThe story is about how a certain drive technology the ever burningropulsion drive used in the space ships we know from the books was discovered Without the discovery of this kind of drive the colonisation of the Solar System wouldn t have been ossible so this is a key moment in humanity s history within SA Corey s universeIt was fun to see an older version of our future compared to the hundreds of years from now from the first novel and to get a feel for the low tech lol I always find that funny in scifiAs I was unsure just when to read this here is my advice read this first It doesn t really give anything away for the novel other than that they have this technology and if like me you know the TV show you already know what s gonna happen anyway However this is a uick way to get a feel for this world and the authors writing style Wow RTC Geez Solomon You d have to be nuts to do a solo space flight testing that experimental engine you developed Hold my beer This is a free short story set in the The Expanse series that tells us about how a Martian engineer named Solomon Epstein developed the drive system used by all the space ships That sounds like it d just be nerd bait for the kind of hardcore fans who look for schematics of fictional starships on the interwebs but this actually has a couple of really solid hooks that make it something than thatOne of the.

Very nice short work The man that started it all with the Epstein driveHe met her ten years before The research center at Dhanbad Nova was one of the largest on Mars Three generations after the first Nice little story about the creator of the Epstain Drive Lots of feelings and a bit lyrical writing For the fans a nice addition for the rest not so much A relatively short reuel to James SA Corey s The Expanse seriesThis was a reread Because I will start with the main series Amata Means Beloved pretty soon For real this timeThe MC is a Martian colonist who considers himself a Martian actually It s unclear how much time exactly hasassed since humans colonized Mars But Solomon was born on Mars and calls it his home He s art of the third generation of humans born on Mars I think So comparatively speaking the colony is still in its early stages and we actually see it change a little throughout this story The narrative covers the span of 6 yearsSolomon is an engineer and he s working on a new drive which if successful will highly increase the efficiency of space travelBut he s fed up with ermissions committees and liability reports So he decides to do some test flights on his own Which of course is not only very exciting but also very dangerousDuring one of those flights something unexpected happens and this is where our story lays out The chapters are alternating between aboard Solomon s ship and flashbacks to the time when he met his wife and to certain moments of their time togetherThe flashbacks are sweet and I thought the dialogue to be very convincing We also learn a little bit about the conflict that s developing between Earth and Mars and I m excited to find out what this all means for the first bookThis was definitely a good startYou can read it for yourself here Mini review355 stars Drive is a great short story about Solomon Epstein and the invention of Epstein s DriveEpstein s Drive despite its lack of discussion in the main series is a very important foundation.
