Foundation (2021): S01E03 – The Mathematician’s Ghost


Introduction

Foundation is an American science fiction streaming television series created by David S. Goyer and Josh Friedman for Apple TV+, based on the Foundation series of stories by Isaac Asimov.

Outline

Nineteen years after the Starbridge attack (12,086 E.I.), the genetic dynasty of Cleon I undertakes its traditional transfer of power: Cleon XIV is born as the new Brother Dawn, Cleon XIII is elevated as Brother Day, Cleon XII retires as Brother Dusk, and Cleon XI assumes the mantle of Brother Darkness before being euthanized. In 12,072 E.I., Seldon’s followers arrive at Terminus and discover the Vault, an enigmatic artifact guarded by a “null field” that repels all life. In the present day (12,102 E.I.), the Foundation is well-established and Salvor Hardin, a second-generation colonist, serves as Warden of Terminus. Hardin is troubled by the sudden expansion of the Vault’s null field, but a larger crisis looms as corvettes from Anacreon appear in Terminus’s skies in open violation of Imperial sanctions. In the hours before the ships’ arrival, Hardin chases a child into the scuttled Deliverance and finds herself surrounded by an Anacreon landing party.
