  • Earth reacts to the discovery that extraterrestrials may have “seeded” human life by sending a group of scientists and astronauts on a one-way trip aboard the Damocles to discover their “kin.”

    When a ship malfunction forces a landing on the planet Didet, a world of multiple suns and perpetual days, linguist Meg Dupris encounters a race of humanoids that differs in appearance and language but has an eerily similar lifestyle to the people of Earth. As Meg and Loul Pell, a Dideto scientist who had predicted the existence of other races similar to humans, search for common ground in order to communicate, circumstances lead to the possibility of open war between the two groups—and both Meg and Loul must examine their loyalties and priorities. VERDICT Redling (Flowertown) demonstrates an acute sensitivity to the nuances of language and the importance of communication as she tells the story of two people caught in the center of a momentous discovery that could change the universe forever. Narrated from the points of view of both Meg and Loul, the often humorous, always serious interplay of first contact exposes the fundamental qualities common throughout the human race.
