Among those collectibles are the ever-so-precious Data Logs, filled to the brim with juicy lore and backstory for die-hard fans of the TV show and books. Fear not, intrepid gamers, for this guide will lead you straight to the Data Logs hidden within Episode 1 of The Expanse.

The Artemis Data Logs


Your journey begins aboard the Artemis, with an engaging conversation between Captain Cox and our protagonist, the one and only Camina Drummer. Once the scene concludes, it’s time to unleash your inner detective and start hunting for those precious Data Logs.

Artemis Diagnostics

Ready to get your hands dirty? After chatting it up with Captain Cox, Drummer must navigate her way to the cockpit and have a little heart-to-heart with the ship’s pilot, Khan. Once that’s done, follow these steps to obtain the Artemis Diagnostics log:

  1. Head over to the Command Console and give it a little tap.
  2. Camina will receive an update on the mission briefing.
  3. Walk towards the first computer console on the right side of the room, and press and hold that scan button to obtain the ship’s diagnostics.

Airlock Prep Log


With the diagnostics successfully in your grasp, it’s time to move on to the next Data Log. Follow these steps:

  1. Leave the cockpit like a seasoned space explorer and make your way down the ladder to the Officer’s Deck.
  2. Take a sharp left turn and proceed straight until you reach the second ladder. Prepare to descend into the Crew Deck.
  3. In the dark depths of the Crew Deck, the Airlock Prep Log screen awaits you on the right side of the corridor. Activate that scan button and claim your prize.

The Refrigerator


Ah, the quest for knowledge takes a chillier turn. Before obtaining the refrigerator log, Camina must pay a visit to Virgil in the Medical Bay. It seems that a laser crystal has gone kaput, and our brave protagonist needs to find a replacement. Don’t worry, you can retrieve the crystal later in the episode. But for now, focus on finding that juicy log.

  1. Engage in some delightful banter with the Twins after following the marker to Brief them.
  2. Camina stumbles upon Arlen pushing his twin Rayen around. Quite the sight, don’t you think?
  3. Prepare yourself for a choice-based dilemma, and once that’s settled, turn around and give that refrigerator a good scan. The Data Log should be nestled inside, waiting to be discovered.

Urshanabi Data Logs


After your encounter with the Twins, it’s time to suit up and head to your room to prepare for your scavenger mission at the Urshanabi wreckage. But before you embark on that adventure, take a breath and explore the ship. There’s nothing like a sprinkle of lore to get your gaming senses tingling. Upon arrival at the wreckage, you’ll soon discover that the Urshanabi UNN crew has met an unfortunate fate at the hands of some pesky pirates. Can you uncover their secrets?

Drive Analysis

  1. After the harrowing cutscene, glide through the floating heads (no, it’s not your imagination) and descend the ramp.
  2. Spot the console on the wall and give it a good scan. Congratulations, you’ve just obtained the Drive Analysis log.

Temperature Log


The adventure continues, and the yellow mission marker will guide you through the wreckage. But wait, there’s more treasure to be found! Here’s how to obtain the final Data Log in this thrilling escapade:

  1. Embrace the wonders of Zero Gravity and float your way to the upper corridor of the wreckage labeled as “46.”
  2. Keep following that mission marker like a faithful sidekick.
  3. Take a glorious left turn at the Officer’s Ward (you’ll recognize it by the fancy hand panel) and venture into the Crew’s Quarters.
  4. The holy grail of Data Logs, the Temperature Log, can be found on the lower bunk bed, neatly tucked away just opposite the entrance. Scan away, brave adventurer!

And there you have it, all the Data Logs hiding within the intricate universe of Telltale’s The Expanse. Reveal all these hidden treasures, and honor shall be bestowed upon you in the form of the prestigious Data Logger Trophy/Achievement. When the credits roll on the first episode, you’ll stand tall, knowing you’ve unlocked the secrets of this captivating game.
