    The only thing I find annoying about the story is how the Solonians are ignorant of their own evolutionary cycle, and need the White Fathers (The Doc and Sondergaard) to figure it out for them…

    That's very true. That is a flaw. Of course, it is implied that part of the problem for the Solonians is that Overload encroachment has decimated their culture, and therefore their knowledge of their own past. All the same, I agree with you. They need outsiders, including a member of the people that have subjugated them, to teach them their own nature. Sondergaard is at least depicted as a dissident.
