What Time am I In?
Chapter 1: Escape Incident
It was another dark and dreary day on the planet of Kamino. The thunderclaps resonated through the storming skies like a small nuke being set off. Lightening struck the tall steel spires of the cloning facilities as if the spires were oversized lightening rods just begging to be struck. Darth Vader's Tie Advanced was being pelted with continuous rainfall and ravaged by the unforgiving gusts of wind as he was attempting to land. The moment Lord Vader stepped out of the cockpit of the fighter, three platoons of storm troopers had lined the halls and snapped to attention. Darth Vader walked past the troopers as if they were not there to an open elevator at the end of the corridor. Waiting for him in the elevator was a young Kaminoan.
Kaminoan: Lord Vader, I believe that this specimen might just be our best attempt to clone a dead Jedi.
Vader: Yes, perhaps. Today we shall see if you are right about this one, or if it is to be discarded just as we did with the other rejects.
Kaminoan: Hmm, what might you have in mind then?
Vader reached behind his cape and brandished a black rectangular box. He held it out to the Kaminoan, who by now was very intrigued by what he was being shown.
Vader: I think he may be ready to wield these.
The Kaminoan opened the box and his eyes grew wide with astonishment. The box contained a twin pair of light sabers. He realized that Vader was going to give the subject his own two light sabers.
Kaminoan; Sir, you cant be serious! There is no way that he is ready to wield a weapon even close to a pistol, and yet you'll provide him with a lightsab…
The Kaminoan was lifted off the ground by the force. He felt the cold invisible hand of the force tighten an unbreakable grip around his neck.
Vader: You will never question my methods again! I will make certain of this.
The Kaminoan gasped with what air he had left as he felt the invisible grip grow even tighter around his neck until a snap was heard in the elevator. Vader released his grip. The Kaminoan fell to the floor completely lifeless. Vader stepped out of the elevator and entered a circular room. The room was dark and dimly lit. Dim red lights lined the perimeter of the room, and one large white light hung over a set of circular bars in the floor. Vader approached it slowly. Fifteen feet below him was a dark figure sitting on his knees with his eyes closed. The bars retracted and the figure was lifted from the ground and into the light.
Vader: Subject 47?
Subject 47: How long this time?
Vader: Twenty-seven days in solitary confinement. Very Impressive.
Subject 47: The force gives me…
Vader: The Force?
Subject 47: The Dark Side…my master.
There was the slightest hint of pain whenever he said those last two words. As if he felt like he were betraying someone. Then inside his head subject 47 hears a woman's voice.
Voice: Your still loyal to Vader!
Subject 47: What is this?
Voice: Even after he branded me a traitor and tried to kill you, your still just his slave!
Subject 47: Who are you?
Voice: Please, don't make me leave another life behind.
Subject 47: Get out of my head!
Then he sensed something behind him. The light sabers flew from the black box, and upon contact with his hand the crimson blades roared to life. He wheeled around to kill whatever was behind him. What he saw was a woman. She spoke just before he struck her.
Subject 47: Juno?
His breathing was now heavy and very scared. He'd never seen this woman before, but yet he knew her name.
Woman: Yes! Galen its me, Juno!
Vader: Strike her down!
Trying with all his strength he attempted to strike her. He could never gain the strength to do it.
Subject 47: I cant!
Vader holding out a package to Subject 47. He took it and opened it to find ragged training robes inside the box.
Vader: What have I just handed you?
Subject 47: My old training gear.
Vader: Then it is as I feared. The cloning process is a little too perfect. The other clones all went mad within a matter of days. I had believed you would be the first success. But it now seems the you are to share the same fate. Galen sensed that something was about to happen. Without Vader noticing, Galen packed an empty backpack with the training robes, the light sabers in their box, and a bag that held inside twelve Jedi holocrons. Once they were all packed he sealed the backpack and used the force to place it by the window. Vader had noticed Galen moving the bag, but he never thought it strange to put an empty bag next to a solid wall. Vader then appeared behind Galen.
Galen: What will you do with me?
Galen then had a vision of Vader plunging his saber through Starkiller's chest. His fury rose and as he spun to catch Vader off guard, a torrent of red force lightening flowed from Galen's hands pinning Vader against the opposite wall. Galen then ripped the wall open and put on the backpack. He turned to give Vader one last menacing look, then he jumped.
Galen: Damn it! So much for planning ahead!
He was rapidly freefalling. Catwalks, platforms, and guard towers were all very dangerous obstacles faced by Galen during his descent. Suddenly he was struck by a bolt of green lightening. To his amazement, instead of being vaporized his body was flowing away like sand being blown away in the wind.
Galen: What is this!? What's happening to me!?
After this he blacked out. When he regained consciousness he was shocked. Instead of rain and metal, he was hot, dry, and covered in sand. He observed his surroundings as he staggered to get up.
Galen: Red sand? Tall spire like structures? Unbearably hot climate? What is going on here? This has to be a dream.
Galen opened the pack and changed into the training gear and fastened the light sabers to his belt. He took a long flowing sand colored piece of cloth off the gear and covered his nose and mouth, then made it into a hood. He put the rest of the items back in the bag, and the bag on his back.
Galen: Now I've got to find somebody who can tell me where I am at.
Just as he started to walk an LAAT Gunship flew past him going the opposite direction. This gave him an idea.
Galen: Better than nothing. I think I'll follow it. Where there are ships, there are people too.
That's chapter one guys. Please review. I want to know what you all think of the first story I've written in three years.
