This books picks up from the end of the famed Foundation Trilogy, namely, Second Foundation where the First Foundationers supposedly eliminated the "threat" of the Psychohistorians when the Psychohistorians had truly eliminated the threat of the First Foundationers. But the very perfection with which both Foundations supposedly quelled their respective anatagonists leaves the Foundationers in a blanket of false security. Two people, namely Golan Trevize of the First and Stor Gendibal, of the Second, defy their superiors in firmly believing that both Foundations have not succeeded and an "alien" force is guiding the universe to it's own ends..and their ominous doom. This incredible galaxy-hopping book (in which many secrets of the Psychohistorians are revealed) describes the separate and ultimately intersecting path of Trevize, his companion, Pelorat and Stor Gendibal, towards an unknown part of the Galaxy and towards an encounter which will change the future of the Galaxy forever.
