As predicted by Hari Seldon in The Foundation novel, the empire is slowly crumbling. The Foundation itself has developed and grown into merchants, traders and advanced physical scientists. They have an incredible hold on technology and political savvy as they exist on a small planet on the periphery of the galaxy. While staving off barbaric planets and systems, they must also content with the weakened tentacle of the Empire. While it has crumbled and is considerably antiquated in technology, the Empire still has a loyal navy and army that is bent on taking back some rogue planets, including the Foundation. And then, just as one crisis is averted, the Mule appears. A mutant who literally seems to come out of nowhere and present a catastrophic crisis to the Foundation. As before, the Foundation turns to the wisdom of Hari Seldon's projections and hope his psychohistorical predictions will help them through this difficult time as the Mule's forces conquer the galaxy. And then someone remembers, there is a second foundation.
