Emperor Palpatine was upset.
Is it really so hard to keep a shuttlecraft on-time?
Maybe I need to encourage the air boss again.
Palpatine relished thinking about the ways someone could be persuaded to keep his shuttle on-time.
He watched as the shuttle sat down with a quiet whine.
About time, I need to get to Alderaan before those politicians get any more ideas.
Boarding the shuttle was slow, Sidious couldn't move as fast as he used to. The Dark Side and corrupted most of his body, but his mind was still perfectly sharp.
"Emperor, the latest status update is ready for your review." said the flight attendant.
Poor woman, a shame she is secretly working for the rebellion. Such a quick and diligent person.
"Excellent. Is there anything requiring my immediate attention?" replied Palpatine.
"There is one thing; scientists believe that there is a sort of wormhole in space. They think that is the source of the disappearance of some of the freighters moving through Coruscant space."
"Fools. There is no such thing as a wormhole, ideas like that were obsolete for centuries! Explain to the scientists that they are being moved to weapons production. I will not tolerate any more myths from those fools."
"Yes, Lord Sidious, I will relay the message right away.
"Good, good. Now, leave me. I must meditate before we reach Alderaan."
"At once, my lord."
The flight attendant rose, and moved toward the cockpit of the shuttle.
Palpatine leaned back in his chair, and closed his eyes. He finally had a chance to relax.
Ahh, peace and quiet at last. There are times I truly hate running an empire.
What? What's happening?
Sidious sat up with a start, trying to figure out why there was so much turbulence in the shuttle.
Is it really that hard to enter hyperspace? I guess it's time for a new pilot.
The shuttle rocked harder, almost as if it was caught between two tractor beams. Palpatine was worried that the shuttle might rock itself apart.
Suddenly, all became quiet. Far too quiet, the engines had stopped.
Oh come on. Engine failure again? I had this shuttle replaced last week!
Sidious moved toward the back, where a custom escape pod was stored. As he moved back, he looked out the viewport of the shuttle.
That is most definitely not Coruscant.
The planet he saw below him was mostly green, with a sea extending beyond the horizon. The one city he did see was small, by Coruscant standards.
"Time to abandon ship." He muttered.
The escape pod disconnected with a soft clank, a muffled roar was heard as the engines kicked on.
What would be a good place to land? Scanners show a cave with an entrance above it. I sense only one life form, he should be easily dispatched.
Palpatine skillfully navigated the pod towards the cave on the outskirts of the city. His sensors showed primitive forms of laser weapons surrounding the perimeter.
And what is that… robots? I haven't seen a robot army since…
Sidious ignored the sudden flashback. He concentrated on landing the pod inside the cave.
Hmm, it seems that this life form is here to meet me. This should be a simple affair.
Palpatine slowly stepped out of his escape pod.
"What are you doing in my hideout?" asked the stranger.
Impudent fool, this is no longer "his" hideout.
"Your so-called 'hideout' has been commandeered for the good of the empire." explained Palpatine.
"I do not recognize your empire, and if you wish to take this cave, it will be by force."
"So be it, fool."
Palpatine unleashed a barrage of force lightning directly at the stranger.
The masked man extended a staff, and deflected the lightning away from him.
"I do not sense the force from you, how did you deflect my attack?" asked Sidious.
"What is this 'force' you speak of? My armor is designed to withstand electrical attacks. You will have to do better than that if you wish to dislodge Slade from his hideout." stated the stranger.
Ahh. So that is the fellows name, sounds like a Zabrak name to me.
Palpatine used the force to rip the staff from Slade's hands. Slade was shocked, but quickly pulled out a revolver and fires at the dark stranger 3 times.
Sidious uses the force to stop the bullets before they can hit him.
"Bullets? What miserable backwater world am I on that my adversary uses bullets?" asked Palpatine.
"Just where are you from stranger? Here in this reality humans have not conquered the stars yet." replied Slade.
"I am Emperor Palpatine. Dark Lord of the Sith, and ruler of the known universe." bragged Palpatine.
"So that was what that anomaly was…" muttered Slade. "You are on the world known as earth, I think you have traveled between dimensions. A most valuable asset if it can be repeated." He said as he put away his gun.
"My shuttle was caught in some sort of wormhole as I left Coruscant." explained Palpatine. "It appears I am trapped in this primitive reality until I find a way out.
"If you are going to stay here, you will need to earn your keep. I am sure your shuttle crash has attracted the attention of the Teen Titans."
"Who are these Titans you speak of? And what city is this?
"This is Jump City, and the Titans are the heroes that protect it. Here in this reality there are some with extraordinary powers, 'super' heroes and villains. You mentioned the Sith. Are there any meta-humans in your reality?"
"Where I come from a meta-human is one who can control the Force. Those who choose to protect the weak are called 'Jedi'. But the Sith have no such limitations, we exploit the weak, and conquer instead of protect."
"Are you up for a battle against the protectors of this dimension?" asked Slade.
"I conquered a galaxy before, a world should be no trouble." bragged Palpatine.
"Yo Robin, sensors picked up a crashed alien ship in Central Park"
"We should check it out, make sure no one got hurt. Titans Go!"
Ok, this is my first fanfic. I was reading in the star wars section when I got the idea, what if a Sith came to Jump City? I tried to write Palpatine and Slade accurately. If I got something wrong, let me know.
