Complete storyline and information about Foundation
The Galactic Empire, which spans the entire Milky Way, is on the verge of collapse. Mathematician Hari Seldon (Jared Harris) calculates this through his research in mathematical sociology and predicts a dark age lasting 30,000 years before a new empire can form.
To purposefully manipulate the trend and drastically shorten the age between empires, Seldon establishes the Foundations. These are two groups of scientists and engineers who are supposed to ensure that a new galactic empire can emerge as quickly as possible after the fall of the current one.
