Details on the inhabitants of the planet vary from novel to novel. In Slaughterhouse-Five, they are beings who exist in all times simultaneously, and are thus privy to knowledge of future events, including the destruction of the universe at the hands of a Tralfamadorian test pilot. They kidnap Billy Pilgrim, the hero of the novel, and place him in a zoo on Tralfamadore with Montana Wildhack, an actress in pornographic films.
In The Sirens of Titan, Tralfamadore is the home of a civilization of machines, which dispatches Salo to a distant galaxy with a message for its inhabitants. After a part in his ship breaks, however, Salo is forced to land on Titan, a moon of Saturn, where he befriends Winston Niles Rumfoord. Rumfoord exists in much the same way as the Tralfamadorians of Slaughterhouse Five, while Salo appears to move in a linear fashion.
