The Expanse is a departure from the silliness of Star Wars, taming its more omnipotent forces in a way that keeps them realistic enough that it plays by some of daily life’s actual rules. So, it’s more in tune with Mass Effect, dancing between space magic and science instead of fully embracing one or the other.

Why do the ships on The Expanse fly backwards?
There are no brakes in space. If you accelerate and eventually want to slow down, you have to decelerate by accelerating in the opposite direction. Whenever a ship is traveling to a certain destination, it has to cut thrust and flip around halfway through the trip.
Why are there no fighters in The Expanse?
They’re more like a modern coastal patrol craft, and probably have smaller armament and no quarters/arsenal for a complement of marines. In almost all sci-fi, fighters exist more because they are cool than because they would actually make sense. And since The Expanse tries to be realistic, it therefore has no fighters.
