Pat Fieser – Norway
“I’m not used to working under these conditions. … I mean, being under physical attack. Deadly infections are pretty normal.”
Doctor Fieser’s work with xenomicrobiology is particularly vital to exploring new worlds. While the chance of infection from diseases outside of one’s home biome is slim, a one-in-a-million disease could begin a plague of galactic proportions, much as the common Terran flu did to the poor inhabitants of Trappist-C. The seeming ‘infected’ nature of the invading xenos on PK-L7 fascinates Doctor Fieser, who plans many, many papers on the ‘mold’ all the infected have in common, assuming anyone ever makes it out alive.
