Thanks to everyone who voted in our last poll! The Rocinante from the Expanse landed the number one spot by a comfortable margin this month.

Originally named the Tachi, the Rocinante (aka "Roci") is a Corvette-class fast-attack-frigate built by the Martian Congressional Republic Navy (MCRN). Protagonists James Holden and his crew acquire the ship early on in the series and use it to complete their mission.

The Expanse franchise began with a series written works by author James S. A. Corey, a pen name of the authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, made up of seven novels and six shorter works. A television series based on the novels began airing in late 2015.  The popular TV show will begin its fourth season in 2019.

Coincidentally, Cas Anvar, who plays Alex Kamal in The Expanse TV series, is the pilot of the Rocinante and appeared at Escape Velocity back in 2017.

Actor Cas Anvar, who plays Alex Kamal, the Martian pilot of the  Rocinante , spoke at Escape Velocity in 2017.
