“Virus-72 Hours to Live” Bk1 in the Virus/Earth II series.
A “First Contact” can occur for many reasons, some good, some bad, some logical and some not.
A suspicious virus that no one can explain hits Earth and creates an apocalyptic world. Where did it come from? Who created it? It doesn’t act like any other virus that Earth has ever seen. As a result, the President of the United States and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs face the collapse of the government and military. Consequently, a ruthless warlord takes control of the Capital. He is kidnapping and killing people; he wants more and attacks the government. While on a trip to Europe, the President’s wife and two children face the virus alone.
Commander Joan Herl, Commander of the space station Oasis, must deal with the viral attack on the station. Also, she must find a way for the station to survive while supporting the moon and Mars colonies. Both colonies are dependent on their support. As a result, the moon colony has some options, but the virus has isolated and trapped the astronauts on Mars. Because of the isolation, they have few options for survival.
While everyone deals with the crisis, two glaring realities appear. One, there is an intelligent computer is their only link to survival. Also, there is another computer that is following a different agenda. A conflict between the ‘Good’ computer and ‘Evil’ computer is inevitable.
Eventually, all of them make difficult decisions, and the surviving humans find only one friend; SIMPOC. SIMPOC is the most advanced, ‘thinking computer,’ destined by programming to help. In addition to SIMPOC an engineering development unit’s (EDU), only priority was survival. Therefore, the EDU had only two enemies: SIMPOC and the remaining humans. For it to survive, the EDU must deal with both.
