In literary science fiction, depictions of galactic empires are common. The trend was kicked off in the 1940s by legendary science fiction writer Isaac Asimov, in his Foundation series. The foundation series focused on the fall of an old galactic empire and the rise of a new one. The foundation books paved the way for other authors to create new fictionalized empires among the stars. In this video, I will be comparing the Galactic Empires, of the Foundation universe, The Dune Universe, from Frank Herbert's series, and the Hyperion Universe, from the science fiction series by Dan Simmons which was published from 1989 to 1997.
