I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I'm finished with Ambulance Ship, the first of the three works in this omnibus. It was composed of several different stories/episodes, and I'm extremely conflicted about the last one. I'm putting this in spoiler tags, because I'll basically be giving away the story's major twist, but it touches on disability issues (sort of - does it count as a disability if it's a sense your species doesn't even have and can barely comprehend?).
So, the Sector General folks find a ship with several dead aliens and two barely alive ones. They can reach the dead aliens, but not the survivors, so they spend some time trying to understand what they'll be dealing with while they try to reach the beings in need of medical attention.
As it turns out,(show spoiler)
