Centuries ago, humans colonised a planet called Pern. In these centuries genetically-engineered creatures called Dragons (due to their similarity to the mythical creatures of earth) were developed to combat an unthinking but deadly enemy called Thread, which fell towards Pern from a nearby planet termed the "Red Star" every 200 years or so.

In the first (DragonFlight), Weyrleader F'Lar and his partner Lessa had to resort to bringing Dragonriders forward in time to save Pern from the Threadfall. ...

Basically there are a group of dissenters who resent the perceived destruction of their way of life. They blame society's ills and even a natural disaster of Aivas and the dragonriders. McCaffrey weaves the tail of the dissenters with that of the natural disaster that strikes the planet. Amongst all this is the background of what the dragonriders are now going to do since Thread is no ...
