As ‘The Expanse’ Owners Talk With Amazon, Fans Ready a Roci Model for Space Travel

Owners of The Expanse are in talks with Amazon about the show’s future Variety reports. SyFy declined to renew The Expanse for a fourth season ten days ago. The series is currently midway through its third season.

While Alcon TV meets with Amazon, fans are gearing up to launch a model of The Rocinante, a ship from the series, to the literal edge of space. The GoFundMe page sponsoring the trip surpassed its goal of $4,000 in less than 24 hours. You can thank redditor hOrrain for donating his Roci model for the cause and expect proof in the form of a video from SentIntoSpace.com, who as fans of the Expanse, are offering the organizers a discount.

This will be the second #SaveTheExpanse flight organized by fans. The first fundraiser sponsored a flyby over Amazon Studios, with a “Save The Expanse ” banner. The idea was scaled down from a hot air balloon, but at this point, it looks like the fans are ready to go big or go home. “We're really a bunch of lunatics! By this time next week we should have our Roci from Space footage,” said organizer Murilo Silva in the latest update to the fundraiser. You can get a taste for the insanity that’s about to go down in the video below.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter Bezos is indeed a big fan of The Expanse canon, one of the reasons fans targeted the Amazon founder specifically in their campaign. “He was livid that the TV series went to NBCUniversal-owned Syfy. The move is said to have ignited Bezos' demand that Amazon Studios brass find the company's version of Game of Thrones.
