Is that Star Castle in The Expanse on Netflix?

A few days ago I started watching the excellent new series, The Expanse, on Netflix. They claim it as a Netflix Original, but both IMDB and Wikipedia claim it’s an Alcon Entertainment and Sean Daniel Company production, originally for SyFy, so I don’t know.

Anyway, I don’t want to say too much about it for fear of revealing spoilers. Suffice to say back in the day I was a big fan of series like Cowboy Bebop, Firefly (and, of course, Serenity), and Battlestar Galactica, and The Expanse goes some way toward scratching that itch in a way that hasn’t really happened since BSG ended. If you’re a fan of sci-fi or space opera with a bit of an edge to it I’d highly recommend you check it out.

Anyway, I’ve been watching this in the evenings for a few days, and towards the end of episode 8 I spotted something interesting on a holo-display. Here’s the shot with enough of the dialogue to set the scene:

Do we think this officer is actually playing Star Castle in The Expanse and not, as she claims, analysing a space battle involving the Donnager? Hmm.

Oh, really?

Well, you can call it whatever you like but it looks to me like your boss just busted you enjoying a good old fashioned game of Star Castle when you should have been working.

Still, it was probably worth it, don’t you think? And if you fancy a game yourself just click here.
