In that case, find a member species/subject race/faction that has an immunity...

In the SFB scenario "Quarantine" (which sounds a lot like this one, except it's a Klingon penal ship instead of Kzintis) the Klingons can't do hit-and-run raids for the very reason they might get infected. That's just the thing: Nobody's sure what the plague is, so no telling who might be able to get it.

There would still be certain species, like Hydrans (who have to wear sealed suits on oxy-nitrogen worlds or die anyway) and Tholians (who are a silicon-based life form, and also have to wear sealed suits or die) who could be in a somewhat different situation.


Ditto for certain non-Alpha factions, like the silicoid Trobrin - or, indeed, for the likes of Drex or Andromedan robot boarding parties.

Did you not read or see Michael Crichton's Andromeda Strain?

Perhaps it's an organism that has evolved the ability to eat/burrow/dig/slash/burn/transport through an enviro-suit?

The Andromeda Strain is one of my all-time favorite books! When I was a teenager, I checked that book out of the library about a dozen times and read it, then on a school field trip to Miss. State, bought a paperback copy in the bookstore there.

I loved the 1970's movie. Scared the bejusus out of me.

The recent TV-miniseries was so bad I quit watching after 15 minutes.

That is a good movie; directed by Robert Wise, who went on to do ST:TMP.

Didn't see it, but from what I'd read, they'd changed it up so much I didn't think it'd be very good.

Yup. I think it is easily one of Robert Wise's best. Very taught and surprisingly fast-paced, considering the times.
