Did the first season explain how the proto molecule made
it into our solar system? Can't remember.

I just saw the last episode of the 3rd season a few days
ago. I think this show has a problem in that it would
suffer if they introduce Star Trek like aliens out
there. Could jump the shark if they don't step
carefully.

Looking forward to what they may find.

Not really.   Just that it originated on Phoebe.   It's discussed that it's extrasolar in origin but not in any great detail.   S1 mostly set up the game pieces and the sociopolitical status of Earth/Mars/The Belt.

Late to the game on this show just finished S3.  I wasn't fond of the second half of the 3rd Season... the weird time jump forward around ep 7 was off putting ...did  I miss something or did they just jump ahead without any explanation? 

But those first 2 seasons some of the best tv I had seen in a long time.

So glad to see Bobby on Rociante and part of the crew.

The time jump was for a couple reasons, primarily because it's the dividing line between the second and third novels.  Stuff happens off-camera between the books, just like in the show.  They also weren't sure that the show would continue and those last few hectic episodes pretty much cover all of the third novel. 

It will be interesting to see how they deal with Book 4, since it's more planet-bound.  There are some important beats for the meta-plot but it's the most debated novel among fans.  Some love it, some hate it, some think it's good, but still the weakest of the series...etc.

I figured as much with the hectic quickness but when jump ahead and there's so much change between episodes I mean all of sudden theres a camera crew on the Rociante.  Between seasons sure between episodes you need some sort of title card for the viewer.... 6 months later on the Rociante 

I have been trying to figure out which Marvel character Frankie Adams (Bobbie) looks like cuz she has superhero written all over her.

Frankie was a great discovery by the producers.  I wonder if they will incorporate her novella into the TV series just so she'll still have something to do this season.  The stuff her in novella sets up the next big plot arc.
