At the end of Isaac Asimov's time travel story, "The End of Eternity", he wrote about the "the beginning of Infinity" in terms of the spread of humans off of Earth to other worlds of the galaxy. From 1943 to 1993 Asimov wrote and published his great saga of human colonization of the galaxy and humanity's spread to 25,000,000 Earth-like planets: the Foundation Series. In the 20,000 year history of the Galactic Empire, as depicted by Asimov, there was no mention of intelligent, human-like beings from other worlds. Then, in the last pages of the Foundation Series, Asimov raised the specter of alien beings from beyond our own galaxy.
