By the time Readis appears, the relationship between man and dolphin has been lost -- mostly because the humans involved have died through old age, accident or been killed by "thread". The dolphins maintained the tradition and the most intelligent of them held the position of "Tillek" a dolphin teacher whose position was named after a human, space navy Capt Tillek, who had been greatly involved with the dolphins in the early years.
Readis and his uncle were rescued by shipfish dolphins after being caught in a sudden squall. They suddenly realize that the dolphins are making intelligent sounds.
While his uncle had heard of this, he had never believed it, but it turns out that the dolphins do not only talk but also prove highly intelligent. Using their sonar, they even help the medical experts of the planet since xray and similar equipment has been lost as well as the technical knowledge to create them.

The story also discusses various other aspects of the planet, its society and history as well as describes a number of important events in the life of Pern.
