Rocinante from "The Expanse" (2015-Present)

I haven't seen the Syfy Series 'the expanse' (yet), but I am a few books into the original novels and am liking them... In case your wondering the two schemes do follow the narrative of the books, with regard to its original Martian Navy ownership, before it is 'salvaged' and refitted by the Outer Planets Alliance....
