The Expanse is the kind of exciting sci-fi series that gives fans of space stories a chance to ponder what life would be like for us hundreds of years in the future when the human race has spread out across the solar system.
The Expanse begins a new chapter in season four when the crew of the Rocinante begin a mission from the UN to explore new worlds beyond the Ring Gate.
Humanity has been given access to thousands of Earth-like planets, which creates a land rush as a result. The fight over land creates even more tension between the opposing nations of Earth, Mars and the Belt.
Ilus is the first of these new planets that happens to be rich with natural resources. But while this planet may seem desirable for a homestead, it also has the ruins of a long dead alien civilization with no indicators of what happened to the previous settlers.
Earthers, Martians and Belters try to colonize Ilus first but have no idea of the larger dangers that may await them.
