Those of you who use social media will have probably seen this already, but for those who don't...

A big roll call of some sweet sci-fi characters in the Expanse's finale.

 Lovely. Is that a nod to Commander Shepard too? The Expanse is the cloest thing we have to a Mass Effect series.

Is that Blade Runner's R. Deckard ? Or Starship Troopers' J. Rico ? Or Terminator's S. Connor ? Oooor Star Trek's W. Riker ? Every name is probably some sci-fi reference  :D

This is really neat. I'm definitely going to have to watch this show at some point, been curious for a while and it should be more digestible now that it is actually over.

If The Expanse had alien races it basically would be Mass Effect.
