Geo – Galactic Exploratory Organization, is the richest, most powerful company on Earth and the government wants control. Claiming that anyone who has been through the Geo teleporters, is a copy – a clone. Using this, they do their best to rob the owners, Bob Russell and Will Sutherland, of their rights. Once that’s accomplished, the government controls not only the company, but their assets.
Jubal, Gloria, Nadine and Chris work for Geo on another plant. They have traveled teleporters many times. Because of this, they are targets of the governments scheme. They return to the planet they’ve been working on, for safety, only to abandon it in an emergency. They must face government prejudice and unfair laws.
“Orange Rock” is a moderately paced sc-fi novella. It deals with the question—are clones real people who have rights? It reflects current society’s attitude toward anyone deemed different and therefor ‘less’. “Orange Rock” is an interesting social commentary in a sci-fi setting.
