Originated Under Twin Suns tells the story of what happened when aliens find wisdom and guidance in the Voyager space probe's iconic information
plaque (launched in 1977) that literally falls into their possession.
Frobs, a species of sentient rocks, are struggling to stabilize their society—
with less than encouraging results—when the Voyager plaque
unceremoniously lands on their planet, mounted as the heat shield on an
invasive spacecraft. Once the splattered invader pilot has been properly
crated up, Frob researchers, with the assistance of some sleazy interstellar
consultants, attempt to extract information from the vandalized disk.
The two factions of planet Frobzb's ruling body argue mightily about
everything: why their society is failing, what actions to take, the identity and
intentions of the invader, what nutritives to suck up their pucker and, of
course, what to do about one uniquely troublesome Frob named Gerfnit. In
desperation, they launch a mission to Urrth, a planet of peace and harmony,
the role model they hope will provide the answer to their fatal societal
problems. Who will they assign to lead the mission? Who else but Gerfnit,
quick learner who remembers everything and the only Frob with seven
Readers of all ages love unusual heroes. Originated Under Twin Suns is an
epic social, political and sexual satire, the story of the origin of the reluctant
but brilliant Frob who becomes Earth’s defender.
