In "The Expanse" an alien race had set up a network of gates/wormholes 
that link 1.300 stellar system through a hub which likely is an 
extrauniversal bubble of space. Later during the unfolding story, humans 
gained access to this network.

This scene shows a ship after passing a ring gate, entering the ring space.

Very nice!

It looks just like the show.

So.... what is the light source in ring space? ;-)

I wondered that too. When I read the books I imagined that area of space 
being dark too. I don't recall there being a glowing nebula.

Maybe it's the background radiation, just like our microwave background, 
but still in the visible range.

In the show the "walls" of the ring zone glow in blue and yellow and 
illuminate the ships inside.

But I added an extra light source to give the ship more contrast. 
Attached is a new version with only diffuse light from the walls.

Aaaah! Much better! Like in the example, you can vary the diffused light 
over ring space (I would suggest a hdri map *) and add a few lights 
on/in the ship itself.

* easy to make: just draw an appropriate image map and save it in hdr 
format. There are several paint or converting programs that can do that.

Or make one in POV-Ray and save directly as .HDR or .EXR.

In this case, a cylindrical mapping looks like it's the way to go. Just 
map on a vertical cylinder cantered around the Y axis, then, rotate it 
as needed.

Updates, updates ... camera position, different light setup. I like this 
one quite a bit better now.

Agree, this one my favorite of those posted.

Is the blue inside the ring intended or due pattern/media clipping of 
some sort?

Season 5 finale this coming Wednesday! :-)
