It was based on an idea—the Battle Room—that came to me when I was sixteen years old. What would the future be like? How would things change?
What would remain the same? The premise of Foundation seemed to be that even though you might change the props and the actors, the play of human history is always the same. It was an idea that rang true with me, perhaps in part because of my Mormon upbringing and beliefs: Human beings may be miserable specimens, in the main, but we can learn, and, through learning, become decent people.

Those were some of the ideas that played through my mind as I read Foundation, curled on my bed—a thin mattress on a slab of plywood, a bed my father had made for me—in my basement bedroom in our little rambler on East in Orem, Utah. In other genres, that desire is usually expressed by producing thinly veiled rewrites of the great work: In science fiction, however, the whole point is that the ideas are fresh and startling and intriguing; you imitate the great ones, not by rewriting their stories, but.
But new in what way?
Asimov was a scientist, and approached every field of human knowledge in a scientific manner—assimilating data, combining it in new and startling ways, thinking through the implications of each new idea. I was no scientist, and unlikely ever to be one, at least not a real scientist—not a physicist, not a chemist, not a biologist, not even an engineer.
I had no gift for mathematics and no great love for it, either. Though I relished the study of logic and languages, and virtually inhaled histories and biographies, it never occurred to me at the time that these were just as valid sources of science fiction stories as astronomy or quantum mechanics.
How, then, could I possibly conic up with a science fiction idea? At that time my older brother Bill was in the army, stationed at Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City; he was nursing a hip-to-heel cast from a bike-riding accident, however, and came home on weekends.
It was then that he had met his future wife, Laura Dene Low, while attending a church meeting on the BYU campus; and it was Laura who gave me Foundation to read.
Perhaps, then, it was natural for my thoughts to turn to things military. I found meanings of my own in that history. Hi, there: Valentine, despite not trusting Peter, agrees to publish alongside him as " Demosthenes ". Their essays are soon taken seriously by the government.
Though Graff is told their true identities, he recommends that it be kept a secret, because their writings are politically useful.
Ender, now ten years old, is promoted to Command School on Eros after a brief respite on Earth. After some preliminary battles in the simulator, he is introduced to a former war hero, Mazer Rackham. From now on, Ender participates in simulations created and controlled by Mazer.
As the skirmishes become harder, he is joined by some of his friends from the Battle School as sub-commanders. Despite this, Ender becomes depressed by the battles, his isolation, and by the way Mazer treats him.
When told that he is facing his final test, Ender finds his fleet far outnumbered by the buggers surrounding their queens' home world.
Hoping to earn himself expulsion from the school for his ruthlessness, he sacrifices his entire fleet to fire a Molecular Detachment Device at the buggers' home world.
The Device destroys the planet and the surrounding bugger fleet.
Mazer informs Ender that the "simulations" he has been fighting were real battles, directing human spacecraft against bugger fleets via an ansible , and that Ender has won the war. Ender becomes more depressed on learning this, realizing that he has committed genocide. When he recovers, he learns that, at the end of the bugger war, Earth's powers fought among themselves.
He stays on Eros as his friends return home and colonists venture to other worlds, using Eros as a way station.
Among the first colonists is Valentine, who apologizes that Ender can never return to Earth, where he would be exploited by Peter and other politicians to fulfill their own purposes. Instead, Ender joins the colony program to populate one of the buggers' former worlds. There, he discovers the dormant egg of a bugger queen, who reveals that the buggers had initially assumed humans were a non-sentient race, for want of collective consciousness , but realized their mistake too late, and requests that Ender take the egg to a new planet to colonize.
Ender takes the egg and, with information from the Queen, writes The Hive Queen under the alias "Speaker for the Dead". Peter, now the leader of Earth and seventy-seven with a failing heart, recognises Ender as the author of The Hive Queen. He requests Ender to write a book about him, which Ender titles The Hegemon.
The combined works create a new type of funeral, in which the Speaker for the Dead tells the whole and unapologetic story of the deceased, adopted by many on Earth and its colonies. In the end, Ender and Valentine board a series of near-lightspeed starships and visit many worlds , looking for a safe place to establish the unborn Hive Queen.In the end, Ender and Valentine board a series of near-lightspeed starships and visit many worlds , looking for a safe place to establish the unborn Hive Queen.
