Syfy’s best current show returns for another 13-episode gig.
Episode 3.1: Fight or Flight
Overview: Picking up immediately after the season 2 finale, Earth and Mars are at war, with each entity vying for control. Now more than ever, the mission to unlock the secret of the protomolecule reaches a point where every decision made could jeopardize the very survival of the solar system.
The crew of a Martian Congressional Republic Navy (MCRN) ship, the Rocinante deals with the fallout over Naomi Nagata, XO of the Roci, telling Fred Johnson (de facto leader of the Outer Planets Alliance’s moderate arm) where to find a protomolecule sample. Also, Chrisjen Avasarala, UN Deputy Undersecretary of Executive Administration, and gunnery sergeant Bobbie Draper of the 2nd Martian Marine Expeditionary Force hatch an escape plan.
Episode 3.2: IFF
The renamed Pinus Contorta, formerly the Rocinante, answers an unexpected distress signal as Bobbie and Avasarala are hunted by a mystery assassin. UN Secretary-General Esteban Sorrento-Gillis consults with a colleague from his past as the Earth-Mars war rages.
