    Summary

    Yusuf translates medical texts for Niccolò from Greek and Persian into Arabic, and Niccolò spots the substratum of the ideas of the classical authors that he had once believed the basis of his own civilisation that he would go to the sword to defend, translated and passed down and sewn into a no longer foreign script. There are words Yusuf does not know how to translate. They will never, ever know all of the words. The prospect is thrilling.
    ---
    It takes Niccolò lifetimes to learn Arabic.

    Summary

    Shampoo, he thinks. Conditioner.

    The kind of hair that’s nice to touch, he hears Sam say again, and reaches for one of the bottles.

    It’s different than soap. Smells nice, like fruit and flowers. The shampoo lathers up soft as clouds, washes away easy. Conditioner’s worse; he can’t tell when it’s fucking rinsed out, his hair feels weird. But he grabs the plastic comb - yes, thank you, Wilson, he does know what a goddamn comb is, he’s not a barbarian - and it slides through without catching, like all the knots are just gone. There could be benefits, he’s willing to admit.

    Summary

    Chris knew it was bad when he started shaking from the blood loss.

    The away mission was a no-brainer, the simplest way to find out what the Red Angel was doing on this uninhabited planet so long ago. Getting separated from the others, lost in the rocky ravines with Michael, that was mildly concerning, but at this point he was convinced you could drop him in the Klondike winter with Michael and a nail file and they'd be just fine.

    The earthquake? That was when it started to feel like someone was messing with them.
