Pretty sure this first season is gonna be about WY conspiracy stuff.. and.. that's fine... as a one-off.
After that, if the 2nd season doesn't go somewhere out into space and explores some actual cosmic horror mystery (a big part of the appeal of the first alien movie...) then it'll be a gigantic waste of imagination.
I would like to learn more about human civilization in the Alien
future. Sometimes that can make the Alien even more alien imo, if it is handled in a smart way. I'm a fan of The Expanse
by the way.
But I must admit that I am more interested in the alien mysteries that might be there in the dark corners of space as well.
that new book is 100% gonna feel like "licensed Alex White fan fic"
