Aliens & Artists, Michael Crichton and the X-Files?

Scenes from the X-Files episode 'Emily'
Emily (given name)

I recently watched the second episode of a two part episode of the 1997 aired X-Files TV show titled 'Emily' about a hybrid alien/human girl named Emily.
In that episode was a line about the author Michael Crichton that caught my attention, as I had just written a post about Crichton, who was mentioned in an 'Aliens & Artist' podcast I had listened to -
Michael Crichton is probably best known for his dinosaur novels, but around the time of that X-Files show mentioning his name a movie called 'Sphere' was a couple of months away from being released onto cinema screens in 1998.
"Sphere is a 1998 American science fiction psychological thriller film directed and produced by Barry Levinson, and starring
Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, and Samuel L. Jackson
Sphere is based on the 1987 novel of the same name by
The film was released in the United States on February 13, 1998."
I find it interesting that Crichton's novel 'Sphere' came out in 1987, the same year another more infamous alien novel came out.
I've not read any of Michael Crichton's novels, or seen the movie 'Sphere' yet, but I noticed that Peter Coyote plays Capt. Harold C. Barnes in the movie 'Sphere' and that Peter is also in the movie
'The Phenomenon' which I just wrote about -
The Fox/UFO Phenomenon?
Huey Lewis plays a Helicopter pilot in the movie 'Sphere' as well:-)
The E.T. Reunion (2002)
ET and Emily Trim?-)
I might have to give the movie 'Emma' a watch now, since the name Emma seems to be a derivative of the name Emily.
Or maybe it's a mutant form of the name?-)
'Fault in Our Stars' and 'The New Mutants' Director Josh Boone Interviews Whitley Strieber About Whitley's New Book 'A New World'?
Oh, and
Michael Crichton passed away 12 years ago in 2008, which was the last Year of the Rat, and when a TV series came out based on one of his novels.
