This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the TV Show
   Hyperspace jump technology was developed and in universal use among all populated worlds long before the Empire was established. Hyperspace jump technology is an Imperial secret.
   Hardin never sleeps in stasis while traveling and never goes to Dornicks home planet. Selvor Hardin leaves Terminus. Gaal Dornick awakens after her 138 year trip to Synaxx and finds Salvor Hardin on the planet.
   Humans (the only intelligent species in the galaxy) all speak Galactic Standard, with regional accents. Some people seem to speak different languages.
   Starships typically land at spaceports on the planet surface; sometimes checking in with orbiting entry stations first. Starships dock with the Starbridge, a space elevator that takes passengers to Trantor's surface. The trip down takes 14 hours. Suicide bombers destroy the space elevator connecting the planet surface to space.
   Only the Foundation scientists have the capability to produce miniaturized nuclear generators and personal shields. The Emperor wears a personal shield that protects him from all but the lightest touch. Some of the Imperial staff have clocking devices to keep them invisible.
