|1||1||"Dulcinea"||Terry McDonough||Mark Fergus & Hawk Ostby||December 14, 2015[a]||1.19|
|The series opens with Julie Mao alone aboard the spaceship Scopuli in a spacesuit. On the dwarf planet Ceres, Detective Miller is assigned to find Mao and return her to her rich parents on Luna. In New York, UN executive Chrisjen Avasarala interrogates a captured operative of the Outer Planets Alliance (OPA), a militant Belter group, about contraband stealth technology. On its way to Ceres, the ice hauler Canterbury receives a distress signal from the freighter Scopuli, and acting Executive Officer Jim Holden is ordered to lead a rescue mission with the ship's engineer Naomi Nagata, the mechanic Amos Burton, the pilot Alex Kamal, and the medic Shed Garvey. They find the ship empty but for a distress transmitter, but as their shuttle heads back to the Canterbury, a stealth ship destroys the ice carrier with nuclear torpedoes.|
|2||2||"The Big Empty"||Terry McDonough||Mark Fergus & Hawk Ostby||December 15, 2015||0.854|
|On Ceres, Miller investigates the theft of water, now severely rationed due to the Canterbury's failure to arrive. In Julie Mao's apartment, he finds clues placing her aboard the Scopuli. On Earth, Avasarala sends the suspected OPA captive to Luna after her superior, Undersecretary Sadavir Errinwright, disapproves of "gravity torture", but the captive commits suicide. In the asteroid belt, the Canterbury's shuttle is damaged by debris from the ice hauler's destruction. Using the last of their air, the survivors build an improvised antenna to place a distress call, which is responded to by the Martian navy flagship, the MCRN Donnager. After Nagata identifies the distress transponder aboard the Scopuli as using Martian military technology, Holden broadcasts a message to that effect to the Solar System, as insurance against being killed as inconvenient witnesses.|
|3||3||"Remember the Cant"||Jeff Woolnough||Robin Veith||December 22, 2015[b]||0.676|
|Holden's broadcast triggers protests on Ceres, with the OPA blaming Mars for the destruction of the Canterbury. In the course of violent riots, Miller's partner Havelock is attacked, almost fatally, and a man with the handle "Nightbandit31", with whom Mao was in contact, is killed. On Earth, Avasarala tests her theory that Mars was behind the attack by leaking to Mars information about the transfer of Martian stealth technology to the OPA. She deduces from the panicked Martian reaction that Mars was not responsible – but that somebody else wants to start a war. Aboard the Martian warship Donnager, the Canterbury's survivors are detained and questioned, with Nagata in particular being suspected of being part of an OPA sleeper cell. Complicating matters further, an unidentified ship flies towards the Donnager, ignoring all requests to divert or identify itself.|
|4||4||"CQB"||Jeff Woolnough||Naren Shankar||December 29, 2015[b]||0.633|
|On Ceres, Miller identifies the dead "Nightbandit31" as Bizi Betiko, a data broker with an implanted, encrypted memory storage device, only to discover the real Betiko is still alive. In the asteroid belt, the Donnager's pursuers reveal themselves as six ships of the type that had attacked the Canterbury, and begin firing torpedoes. Unexpectedly at a technological disadvantage, the Martian ship takes heavy damage, and Shed Garvey is killed by a railgun shot. As the Donnager is being boarded, the surviving Canterbury crew are evacuated on the Martian captain's orders, narrowly escaping aboard a frigate from Donnager's bay immediately before the Donnager self-destructs to avoid capture. Far from the battle, at Tycho Station, where a massive generation ship, the Nauvoo, is being built at the behest of the Mormon Church, station manager, and leader of the OPA, Fred Johnson turns the Nauvoo's sensors towards the battle.|

|For lack of options, the Canterbury's survivors accept a proposal by OPA leader Fred Johnson to join him at Tycho Station, and with his help they modify the ship's transponder, renaming their salvaged ship the Rocinante, to hide the fact it's a Martian warship. A flashback shows how Johnson became "The Butcher of Anderson Station" eleven years ago: as a UN Marine colonel, he led an assault on a station occupied by protesting miners, killing all despite their attempts at surrender. On Ceres, Miller finds evidence linking Julie Mao to the OPA, who try to recruit him through their local agent Anderson Dawes. While leaving Julie's apartment with the data chip, Miller is abducted by unknown people.|

|On Ceres, Miller is interrogated and tortured by Dawes, demanding to know what he has learned about Julie. Miller escapes, with fellow officer Octavia Muss, and discovers revealing information on a hidden data cube, a major secret. Upon revealing his discovery to his boss, she fires Miller and takes all information regarding the case. Avasarala wants a spy on Tycho Station, and resorts to extortion to get her way. Holden and crew arrive at Tycho Station, with Fred Johnson planning to leverage Holden's testimony for legitimacy with the UN. Holden makes an uneasy alliance, sharing everything he knows about the destruction of the Canterbury and the MCRN Donnager. Johnson seems fairly convinced neither Earth nor Mars was behind the attacks. After disguising the Rocinante as a simple gas hauler, they set out for Eros to pick up a potential survivor of the Scopuli.|

|During a visit to Holden's co-op parents' house in Montana, Avasarala learns of Holden's troubled childhood and gains some insight into his recent decisions. On their way to Eros, the crew of the Rocinante realize too late that Kenzo, a spy from Tycho station is on board and has inadvertently gotten the attention of a Martian patrol. Kenzo helps obtain the MCRN codebook from the ship's safe, and with a few code words the patrol backs off, believing the Rocinante to be a Martian black ops ship. Miller departs Ceres for Eros, with a new piece to the mysterious puzzle surrounding Julie Mao.|

|The Rocinante arrives at their true destination, an asteroid at coordinates given by Fred Johnson and discovers the Anubis, the stealth ship that had destroyed the Canterbury. It is empty except for a mysterious, spreading, organic substance that covers the ship's reactor. They scuttle the stealth ship, then head to Eros to find a survivor of the Scopuli code-named Lionel Polanski, who escaped the Anubis on its shuttle. Miller is also tracking down Polanski, identifying her as Julie Mao. Arriving at Eros, Holden and his team are ambushed at the hotel where Polanski is staying by a UN black ops team (signaled by Kenzo, and authorized by Errinwright), but are saved by Miller. After joining up, Holden's team and Miller go to meet Julie Mao only to find her already dead, infected by the same substance from the Anubis.|

|The events leading up to Julie Mao's infection by the unknown bio-hazard on the Anubis and gruesome death in her hotel room on Eros are revealed in a flashback. Fred Johnson broadcasts evidence that the stealth ships were built on Earth. After Miller and the Rocinante crew flee the hotel, Julie's body is found and studied by Dresden, a scientist working for Julie's father Jules-Pierre Mao, who harvests her infected blood. Under the guise of a ship explosion and radiation leak, mercenaries loyal to Julie's father and Dresden place Eros into lockdown and seal the poverty-stricken citizens into radiation shelters after infecting them with Julie's blood. Most of the Rocinante crew head back to the ship, while Miller and Holden go to investigate the shelters. Discovering their true purpose as incubators for the infection, with everyone inside dead or dying, they also receive a lethal dose of radiation.|

|The Rocinante crew, Miller and Holden (suffering from radiation sickness), make their separate ways through the increasingly horrific situation on Eros towards the ship. They theorize that the conspirators behind the stealth ships are using the population as food for the "protomolecule" infection. Miller begins to see hallucinations of Julie Mao. Amos kills Miller's friend, Inspector Sematimba, after he holds Nagata at gunpoint when she refuses to launch the Rocinante without Holden. Miller and Holden make it to the ship, which escapes, and are treated for radiation sickness. On Earth, Avasarala's investigation is stopped by Errinwright, who is part of the Mao conspiracy. On Eros, the UN spy Kenzo is left to be consumed by the rapidly advancing Protomolecule infesting the colony.|

|The season opens with Martian Marine gunnery sergeant Bobbie Draper and her team undergoing combat training on Mars. They are deployed to Phoebe Research Station, which had been reported as being attacked. The United Nations debates blockading MCRN fleet deployments; Avasarala backs the measure but privately believes that she is being prepared by Errinwright as a scapegoat, and hires private security. An MCRN vessel fires on a UNN vessel; the UN elects not to fire back, figuring that the Martian missiles were saber-rattling. The missiles pass the UNN vessel and destroy Phoebe Station. Draper believes that war with Earth is good; her commanding officer, Sutton, believes war must be avoided. Holden and Miller recover from radiation sickness; Miller and Amos have a violent disagreement that is broken up by Naomi. The Rocinante crew finds a protomolecule sample in a cryogenic safe recovered from the Anubis and decide to hide it in a debris field. Naomi and Holden perform repairs to the Rocinante and their personal relationship deepens. Alex cooks lasagna for the crew of the Rocinante, and over dinner tensions are eased.|

|Avasarala hires freelance spy Cotyar Ghazi. The Rocinante crew's arrival at Tycho Station is tense, but the situation is defused by explaining what is happening on Eros and where the data is going. Fred Johnson pulls together a strike team from rival Outer Planets Alliance factions, killing one of their leaders in the process. Rocinante is assigned as the mission's muscle in the assault on Thoth Station, engaging the station's defenses and clearing a path for the boarding party. The station is not prepared to defend itself, and falls easily to the team. Capturing the lead scientist on the project, Dresden, and an underling, Cortazar; Dresden is uninterested in who he answers to as long as he can continue his work. Dresden explains the source, dangers, and possibilities of the protomolecule and tries to convince Holden and Johnson to let him continue the project, but Miller shoots him in the head.|
|13||3||"Static"||Jeff Woolnough||Robin Veith||February 8, 2017||0.587|
|Earth destroys Mars's moon Deimos in response to the MCRN's nuking of Phoebe. This creates tensions in Bobbie Draper's squad. Holden and his crew return to Tycho Station, angry at Miller for killing Dresden, the lead scientist on the protomolecule project. Fred Johnson offers Miller safe passage off Tycho, but Miller's investigations show that action must be taken against Eros. Johnson and Holden reach the same conclusion when Amos figures out how to get the captured scientist Cortazar to talk. Miller realizes that Eros must be destroyed, and that Fred Johnson has the equipment necessary to do so: the Nauvoo.|
|14||4||"Godspeed"||Jeff Woolnough||Dan Nowak||February 15, 2017||0.534|
|Avasarala gathers information linking the protomolecule to Jules-Pierre Mao, Julie's father. Miller's plan is put into action. After assembling a demolition team and procuring the Rocinante's services for cover, the Nauvoo is evacuated of its people, commandeered, and set on a collision course to knock Eros into the Sun. After flying to Eros, Rocinante drops its cargo of bombs and the demolition team spacewalks to them for precise placement in order to seal the surface of the asteroid. A complication arises when a group of humanitarian doctors is found who will not follow Holden's orders, so he destroys their ship to prevent spreading the protomolecule infection. The debris damages one of Miller's bombs, and he chooses to stay with it on Eros, watching the Nauvoo approach, but no collision takes place. Holden and crew confirm that the Nauvoo did not miss – despite having no human-built propulsion system capable of doing so, Eros maneuvered to avoid the impact.|
|15||5||"Home"||David Grossman||Mark Fergus & Hawk Ostby||February 22, 2017||0.600|
|Eros is speeding on collision course for Earth. Miller and the crew decide that Miller will bring the bomb into the heart of Eros to destroy it and then escape back to the Rocinante. On Earth, the United Nations decides to fire its planetary defence nuclear missiles at the incoming Eros, but the asteroid evades them by 'going stealth', ceasing to reflect radar. The Rocinante crew use their proximity to the asteroid to provide a target lock to Fred Johnson, who will guide the missiles to Eros. Eros reacts to this by accelerating still faster; to maintain visual contact, the Rocinante accelerates at the limits of human endurance and finally gives up the chase. Miller arrives with the bomb at the heart of Eros and discovers a transformed Julie Mao. While the protomolecule has infected her and Eros, she has in some way infected it back, and can influence Eros's trajectory. With a combination of words and affection, and after removing his protective spacesuit, Miller convinces her to redirect Eros away from Earth toward Venus, where it crashes in a planetary-scale event.|

|Flashbacks to 137 years prior show Solomon Epstein, a Martian colonist, envisaging a future where Mars has broken free from Earth's control based on his invention. In the present, Avasarala demands Errinwright bring Mao out of hiding by threatening Mao's family and business empire. On Tycho, Fred Johnson's idea to use the thirty missing nukes as a bargaining chip against Earth and Mars angers Holden. The crew on the Rocinante commiserate over Miller's death and agree to launch the protomolecule sample into the sun, believing it is too dangerous to keep. But Naomi fakes the launch leading the others to believe there is now no sample left. On Ganymede, Bobbie Draper and her marines are sent to patrol the agricultural farms and they see UN marines running towards them, firing, as their comms are jammed. The UNN and MCRN fleets in orbit each assume the jamming is part of an attack by the other side, and a full scale battle breaks out in orbit – destroying several of the giant orbital mirrors in the crossfire, whose crashing wreckage devastates the colony on the surface. The Scirocco comes under fire and Sutton is killed. After the battle, an injured Bobbie awakes to find her entire team massacred, and an inhuman figure standing over her.|

|After the Ganymede battle, Bobbie is rescued by the MCRN and asked to report the events, which some of her superiors do not believe. On Earth, Avasarala demands a peace summit between Earth and Mars to prevent further escalation of the tension, in which both planets believed the other fired first on Ganymede. Over three thousand people were killed in the Ganymede Incident, and the massive damage to the colony destroyed the agricultural domes that the Belt depends on – leading to a starvation and refugee crisis. On Tycho Station, a recently arrived Anderson Dawes is asked to represent the Belt in negotiations for peace with Earth and Mars, but Dawes convinces the Belters that Earth and Mars will never respect the Belt. Bobbie is ordered to Earth to the peace summit, and to tell Earth that Mars fired first accidentally, despite Bobbie remembering the presence of an alien figure the UN marines were fleeing from. On Tycho, Dawes becomes aware of Cortazar's presence and knowledge. Cortazar is later found to be missing from his cell, leading Alex and Naomi to chase after an escaping ship, only to find Diogo aboard and Dawes and Cortazar gone.|

The ship's crew throws refugees from the inner planets out of the airlock, reflecting the rising tension between the Belters and the Inners. Prax's ship later arrives at Tycho Station, which is inundated with thousands of refugees from Ganymede. Meanwhile, Fred Johnson receives a message from Dawes, who tells him that he's giving back the weapon (Cortazar's protomolecule information) to the Belt. This earns support amongst the Belters on Tycho, who storm the hangar and take Fred and Drummer hostage, wanting to launch the missiles back to Earth in order to provoke a fight, but are unsuccessful when the Rocinante crew intervenes. The crew discovers that a protomolecule 'shout' (signal) came from Ganymede at the time of the battle and discover a paediatrician, Dr. Strickland, who used to work for Protogen, was also on Ganymede. Prax reveals that his daughter Mei was a patient of Strickland's and footage shows Strickland leaving the paediatric clinic with Mei one hour before the battle.

The Mars delegation arrives on Earth for peace negotiations, and Bobbie Draper gives testimony that makes it look like Mars started the battle of Ganymede by accident. Alex takes the Rocinante to hide behind a Jovian moon, awaiting a call from the crew for pickup or rescue, and Prax is unimpressed with the crew's planning abilities. Upon arrival, Holden and Amos realize something is wrong on the Somnambulist and, while attempting to intervene, one of the Somnambulist's crew is killed. A research vessel in orbit around Venus, the Arboghast, discovers that the Eros impact zone is teeming with unexplained activity, information that Avasarala matches with Bobbie Draper's additional testimony to realize that the solar system is still in danger.|

Errinwright confesses to Avasarala his role in helping Jules-Pierre Mao with the Eros incident. Avasarala approaches Bobbie with images of the inhuman figure from Ganymede, now believing Mao created it as a weapon which could wind up in Mars' possession. On Ganymede, Amos beats an information dealer for footage of Dr. Strickland taking Mei to the oldest part of Ganymede station. Prax realizes too much damage has been done to Ganymede's ecosystem to ever repair it. Alone on the Rocinante, Alex receives the MCRN alert declaring Ganymede a no-fly zone.|

|With nothing left to lose, Bobbie assaults Captain Martens, forcing him to reveal "Project Caliban", the protomolecule technology developed by Jules-Pierre Mao, a demonstration of which was behind the Ganymede Incident that triggered the battle in orbit above. The technology is up for sale and was pitched to Mars. Bobbie forcibly takes the relevant information from Captain Martens and subsequently claims political asylum at the UN with Avasarala. Jules-Pierre Mao contacts Avasarala, offering to explain everything if she meets with him somewhere outside of UN control, and she accepts, notwithstanding Cotyar's objections. The research team aboard the UNS Arboghast lands a probe on Venus, seeing a massive protomolecule structure before the feed cuts out. Alex uses the Jovian moons as a Gravity slingshot to sneak the Rocinante past the MCRN blockade of Ganymede. Holden and crew explore the old part of the station, coming across guards and scientists having a pizza party. After Prax starts a gun fight, the survivors barricade themselves in the back room. Holden and Prax realize that the weapon is inhuman monsters that are actually Belter children with genetic peculiarities and purposely infected with protomolecule; the fate of Mei is unclear. After Amos tosses a grenade back at them, the enemy is killed by a protomolecule monster; however, a dying scientist says there are plenty more out there. Naomi and Amos split from the party to evacuate people off Ganymede, while Holden, Prax, and Alex go to hunt the protomolecule monster on the moon's surface.|

|Errinwright expresses remorse to Avasarala as she departs to Mao's ship with Bobbie and Cotyar. Mao claims he will give both Earth and Mars access to the protomolecule while he sits comfortably in the middle, preventing war. Errinwright meets with Martian Defense Minister Korshunov, poisoning him with a banned toxin for Martians that makes it look as if he died from a heart attack while also ordering the destruction of the Martian black-ops ship MCRN Karakum that was dispatched to collect the protomolecule monster on Ganymede. Errinwright subtly orders Mao to kill Avasarala and tie up loose ends. Holden becomes increasingly aggressive while hunting the protomolecule monster. Naomi and Amos repair the Somnambulist but it carries only enough air for 52 people, while over 300 refugees riot at the door. Naomi, with the help of a Belter who gives up his spot to her, manages to evacuate all the children and some young adults. When the Somnambulist is fired upon for violating the MCRN blockade, Alex convinces Holden to save them, threatening the MCRN ships with the Rocinante's arsenal.

|The protomolecule monster is discovered in the cargo bay of the Rocinante. It attacks and throws a magnetic crate at Holden, crushing his leg and pinning him to the wall. It begins tearing panels to get to the ship's reactor core for its radiation. Amos says the only way to get rid of it is to take the extra air on the ship into a pressurized blast to force the monster out into space, which would also kill Holden. Prax sees the monster as a biological creature craving radiation as a nutrient and realizes the nuclear core in the ship's missiles could lure it out. Naomi and Prax expose a core; Prax throws it at the last second, causing the monster to jump after it and be incinerated by the main engine's exhaust. Cotyar is wounded in a shootout with Mao's men but Bobbie manages to sneak away to get her power armor and saves him and Avasarala at the last moment. As the science team aboard the Arboghast begins to descend towards the surface of Venus for a closer look at the protomolecule structure, the ship is completely stopped and then disassembled in an increasing spherical pattern, the fate of its crew unknown. Naomi confesses to Holden that she never destroyed their protomolecule sample; with Earth and Mars already fighting over it, the Belt needed it too, so she gave it to Fred Johnson. On Io, Mei is shown to be alive and kept in stasis with several other children by Dr. Strickland.|

Holden and crew have become famous throughout the system for their actions and are escorting the OPA fleet to the ring. Mars is suing the Roci crew over their ship and Monica and her cameraman are allowed onboard to film a documentary in exchange for paying the crew's legal fees. Naomi and Drummer command the OPA flagship Behemoth (formerly Nauvoo). Dawes' representative and former pirate Klaes Ashford arrives to be Drummer's first officer, joined by Diogo, now a member of the OPA Navy. Ashford undermines Drummer by preventing her from publicly spacing a drug dealer. A UNN tech crew is deployed to a support ship in the earth fleet. Crew member Melba Koh places a bomb on the ship, and uses superhuman strength to kill a coworker who discovers it. As a Belter racing ship slingshots through The Ring it instantly decelerates to a near complete stop, killing the pilot before disappearing through the ring. Alone in his quarters on the Rocinante, Holden sees a vision of Miller sitting on his bed.|

|Melba hides the body and transfers to the Thomas Prince, feeling remorse for the murder and briefly meeting Anna. On the Rocinante Holden keeps scanning himself for brain defects and protomolecule, finding nothing wrong. Miller only shows up when he is alone, speaking gibberish, alarming Amos and Alex that Holden seems to be talking to himself. Holden uses timestamps from Monica's footage to realize Miller first appeared when the racer activated the Ring. The cameraman swaps out a circuit on the Rocinante. Miller is able to say he is an Investigator, he and Holden are both tools for "it" to get to The Ring. Melba destroys the Seung Un and a message plays of Holden claiming responsibility, stating The Ring belongs to the OPA. The Rocinante is unable to communicate outwards. On the Behemoth Ashford demands they fire on Holden to prove the OPA is not with him. Despite Naomi's protests Drummer gives the order and the ship malfunctions but eventually fires. Holden is able to get Amos to give him a minute alone. The protomolecule Miller says that they are moving too fast. Holden is able to convince Alex to slow down and head for the Ring; the deceleration hurting everyone on board. Holden wakes up to find time on the ship slowed to almost a complete stop, the missile just behind them as the ship starts to enter The Ring.|

|The missile has been stopped and redirected by The Ring but the Rocinante is unable to communicate or access any weapons. A Martian ship follows them inside; a probe touches the edge of the Ring and vanishes. Cohen the cameraman admits to sabotaging the ship but says he only wanted information and never met the person who contacted him to do this. Amos sends him and Monica out of the ship to be picked up by the Martians to explain Holden's innocence. Unable to repair the ship without Naomi, Holden believes their only option is to surrender to the Martians. On the Behemoth Ashford's talks with Naomi make her realize her heart is still with the Rocinante. Drummer rallies the Belters to enter The Ring but lets Naomi take a shuttle back to her old crew once inside. Flashbacks reveal Melba is the other daughter of Pierre Mao who could never get his approval as he preferred Julie. Melba intends to destroy Holden for her father. Earth's civilians are evacuated away from The Ring but Anna is able to stay. Miller has Holden investigate the center of the pocket dimension The Ring connects to. Holden detaches himself from the ship and goes towards a structure in the center.|

|The Thomas Prince enters The Ring. Anna and the others are fascinated by it isolating foreign objects theorizing it's trying to isolate potential threats. Tensions rise between Drummer and Ashford. Anna ignores a Methodist crew member frightened of The Ring. After he kills himself, Anna encourages everyone to reach out and support each other. Her friend Tilly recognizes Melba as Clarissa Mao. Clarissa looks for a way to get to the Rocinante before the Martians do. As Holden goes towards the station at the center of the pocket dimension, the Investigator admits he isn't really Miller. It's just a construct in Holden's brain to fulfill the protomolecule's mission of finding out what happened to an old civilization. In the center Holden is instructed to touch a circuit, revealing Miller's last thoughts to get Holden to comply. Believing Holden to be insane, a Martian team including Bobbie follow him. They fire at Holden when he won't stop. The bullets are stopped in mid-air and the Martian lieutenant is disassembled and absorbed by the station when he throws a grenade. The station forces every ship to slow down more, interrupting Clarissa's attack on Tilly. Holden touches the circuit, seeing events from the protomolecule's point of view; planets exploding and a connection to farther away in space. Holden passes out.|

|The mass deceleration caused fatalities and severe wounds among all the ships; without gravity internal wounds cannot drain, meaning many more will die. Naomi returns to the Rocinante treating a wounded Amos and Alex. On the Behemoth, Drummer and Ashford are pinned on opposite sides of a large piece of equipment, working together to try to free themselves and learning about each other. Drummer allows it to roll forward, crushing her further to give the ship a captain in Ashford. Once free, to treat Drummer and the others, Ashford commands the ship's drum to create spin gravity, opening the ship to everyone's wounded. Leaving Tilly for dead, Clarissa realizes with all ships being drawn to the center, she can board the Rocinante. However, Tilly survives just long enough to tell Anna the truth. Clarissa boards the ship and attacks Naomi, seeking Holden, but Anna followed and tasers her from behind. On Bobbie's skiff, Holden wakes up and tells her he saw a vision detailing the end of everything.|

|Everyone boards the Behemoth with all weapons seized by the OPA. Holden is believed to be insane and Clarissa wears an injection system to impair her abilities. She is locked across from Holden without him knowing who she is. Anna tells her all she can hope for now is forgiveness. Holden tells Ashford the beings that created The Rings and protomolecule were somehow killed and used Rings to destroy solar systems, attempting to save themselves. Drummer builds herself mechanical legs with help from Naomi, whom she later reunites with Holden. Clarissa can hear Holden's torment as he tries to get Miller to tell him what to do next. Amos takes a liking to Anna. A tech from Earth has the idea to send a damaged skiff with a nuclear missile to try and weaken the field blocking immobilizing ships and blocking the laser communication to the outside world. In response, the station begins charging energy. Ashford realizes the station intends to destroy the entire solar system and convinces the leaders of Earth and Mars to destroy The Ring with the laser, saving humanity at the cost of marooning everyone inside The Ring.|

|Holden finally has a conversation with Miller and tells everyone else they must power down all the ships. The station is trying to decide if humans are a threat and Ashford's laser will cause it to destroy the solar system. As Holden, Naomi and Drummer storm the Behemoth's reactor room, Amos and Alex recruit Anna and Monica to broadcast to the other ships asking them to power down. Clarissa is freed to work on the electrical system for the laser. Anna's message causes panic and Bobbie's squad is sent to stop the broadcast. She turns on and kills the other Marines for Alex but is wounded. Diogo attacks the reactor room in Martian power armor, Drummer stays behind to deal with him but Naomi crushes him with an elevator to save Drummer. Anna's message convinces the other ships to power down. Ashford orders Naomi and Holden killed, but Clarissa saves them and takes a bullet to shut down the Behemoth. The station releases all the ships as it reactivates the remaining Rings to 1300 habitable solar systems. Ashford, Clarissa and Bobbie all survive. Bobbie joins Rocinante's crew as a gunner. Holden tells The Investigator it wanted The Ring open all along, to find out what killed its creators, and has just given humanity something to explore as part of its plan. The Rocinante passes through a ring, presumably to one of the new solar systems.|
