In #Contagion TNG epi 3.11 we learn Picard is an archeologist, Iconians could cross light-years as easily as we cross a room, computer viruses are bad, and Starfleet doesn‘t practice network prophylactics. Also featuring Toronto‘s City Hall.
As such, the only Michael Crichton book I like is The Andromeda Strain. Again, as with all his books, the film is better (the 1st film, 1971; the 2008 film is baaaaaaad).
This talks about the search to find a drug to combat bacterial #Contagion. It has a wonderful historical overview of the #LittlestThings that have caused major problems in history. I‘m going to recommend two other books about bacteria and drugs in the comments. All three are great #audiobooks, too. I highly recommend these books for pharm/science/history nerds!
I shall also be starting this sci-fi, horror novel. I think it‘s also YA. I don‘t know much about it other than it involves some spooky virus thingymajig. I figured the less that I know, the more receptive I‘ll be to the twists and horror elements (hopefully).
