''Disquiet'' is a novel by the Creator/StrugatskyBrothers set in the Franchise/NoonUniverse. Although originally written in 1965, the authors considered it a failure and reworked it into the standalone novel ''Snail on the Slope'', which was published chapter by chapter between 1966 and 1968. The original draft was first published in 1990, establishing the story as part of the Noon Universe (to which the ''Snail'' edition lacked any connection).

The story of ''Disquiet'' initially follows the famous pilot and recurring Franchise/NoonUniverse character Leonid Gorbovsky during his visit to Pandora, a planet known for its vast, mostly unexplored jungles. Said jungles stretch over almost all of its landmass, and, thanks to their exotic flora and fauna, are considered a sort of wildlife reserve and a popular vacation spot. When a helicopter crashes in the jungles, both Gorbovsky and the director of the Terran observation base embark on a rescue mission.

!!Tropes found in the Novel:

* AmazonBrigade: [[spoiler: The "Female friends" in a scary, dogmatic sort of way. They control the forest, the "Deadmen", and the purple clouds, which may be nanobots. According to them, men have lost all usefullness on Pandora. Even scarier: they may be right.]]
* [[spoiler:AssimilationPlot: The "Female friends" plan to induct all the women on their world into their ranks, and drown the remaining, now male-only villages. Athos Sidorov is conflicted wether this counts as social or evolutional progress.]]
* DeathWorld: The Pandora, even though the emphasis in the book is less on how deadly it is, and more how really, really weird its fauna and flora are. Still, a name like "Armeater" won't come out of nowhere.
* GardenOfEvil: The Pandoran wildlife that isn't actively dangerous to humans is rather incomprehensible. Apart from the usual wild beasts you've got insects which seem to be very uncomfortable to come into contact with, and (possibly plant) tentacles that burrow into your skin. On the incomprehensible side, you have , for example, a mile high pillar of slime, which at its base has a pool that devours anything that falls into it.
* HumanAliens: The people of the forest, even though their civilization and society are pretty alien.
* MotorMouth: Every villager Athos talks to. They also tend to repeat themselves. [[spoiler: Athos suspects that they aren't stupid, they are afraid of talking about subjects like death or the doom of their village]]
* OrganicTechnology: The Pandorans [[PlanetOfHats hat]]. Even though they only have a feudal society at best, they use animals and plants like we use tools. [[spoiler: Taken even further with the "Deadmen", which are biological robots.]]
