[size=200]The Foundation Crisis:[/size]
When one thinks of pushing things too far, many factions of the Gratuitous War may spring to mind, but none compare to that of the Foundation. Pushing the very barriers of the universe, at its height it possessed the power to bring the entire galaxy to its knees with virtually no opposition. Though it supremacy was extremely short-lived, the event is universally remembered as the “The Foundation Crisis”. Had it not been for the Foundation’s accidental discovery the galaxy would would have already fallen into ruin. They are a mysterious galactic power; due to the intentional destruction of so many of their records once defeat was near, even today many details of the Foundation’s origins remain shrouded in secrecy. The little that is known comes from the capture of Dr. Harvey Sheldon during the Battle of Terminus I.
The Foundation entered the galactic stage in an instant, and declined nearly as fast. As further research continues into Sheldon’s plan, questions have arisen about whether the Foundation’s discovery, and resulting decline, was truly accidental, or if it is all part of a greater ongoing scheme…
[size=200]The Divisions of the Foundation[/size]
The Foundation is driven by a pursuit of technology, and they are successful at it. Their ships are highly advanced, but come at an increased cost. (Considering how many millions in funding they “borrowed” from the Great Powers, it’s not surprising.) Their dedication to psychohistory Harvey Sheldon’s Plan reaches level of religion rivaling the order. They are believed to control a region between the Himalaya Wall and Stygian Abyss, but this is unconfirmed.
Not much is known about this secondary division of the Foundation, however they appear to use standard and modified hulls from the Empire and Rebellion. Until recently they were the only part encountered, and are currently believed to be a front for the true Foundation.
The first part of the mod will be released in 3 phases, with each adding a new set of hulls, modules and a new scenario of the 3-part Foundation Conspiracy. Afterwards it will receive additional add-on sets.
