About this Series
In James White’s beloved science fiction medical dramas, an intergalactic hospital promotes peaceful first contact by addressing alien illnesses.
Sector General: A massive deep-space hospital station on the Galactic Rim, where human and alien medicine meet. Its 384 levels and thousands of staff members are supposedly able to meet the needs of any conceivable alien patient–though that capacity is always being strained as more (and stranger) alien races turn up to join the galactic community. Sentient viruses, interspecies romances, undreamed-of institutional catering problems–it all lands on Sector General’s doorstep. And the only thing weirder than a hitherto unknown alien species is having a member of that species turn up in your Emergency Room.
Notable for its wide array of believable alien life forms, Sector General’s multi-species medical stories and pacifist philosophy make this one of science fiction’s most beloved space opera series.
