The Empire Chronicles: Rise of The Empire

Exiled by his own people for fear of him becoming a dictator (even though he was nothing but kind and essentially created their utopia) as his future self began terrorizing them and his wife nearly killed him all because he spends more time trying to help his people and prove his innocence rather than be with her and their children. Now, begins his revenge.

The ship came out of warp and approached a grey, dead like planet while on the bridge the helm officer said, “We achieved standard orbit sir.” Michael pressed a button on his right armrest and stated over the intercom, “All personnel, don radiation suits now.” He then waited a few minutes till a clone on his right turned to him and said, “Sir all personnel are in their radiation suits.” Michael replied, “Confirmed Lt.  Helm, begin landing procedures.” The helm officer replied, “Yes sir.” And began pressing various buttons. The ship then began its decent to the planet below, first passing a large fog as the helm officer concentrated on her console as she looked ahead through the infer-red till suddenly tall, pillar shaped skyscrapers appeared all around them.  Michael said, “Congratulations helm on navigating through the fog.  The last time I have been here I almost slammed my ship headfirst into one of those buildings.” The helm officer replied, “Thank You sir.  Where do you want us to land?” Michael pointed at a series of factories and smoke stacks and replied, “The nearest available clearing at those factories.” The helm officer said, “Yes sir.” The large pen shaped ship flew past the abandoned large city and into an endless field of factories, smoke stacks and warehouses and landed right before them. 


    A few moments later, the side ramp opened and the clones emerged in radiation suits carrying their piped rifles and spread out and secured the front of the ramp before Michael walked down to the ramp’s edge (in his radiation suit), made one look before him and then walked out (with a dull thud sound in his wake as his boots stomped onto the ground before him).  Miranda’s clone stood at attention as Michael approached her (with an expressionless face) and said, “Report MR-121.” MR-121 replied, “Sir, area is secured.” Behind Michael, Miranda and Gala (looking around curiously as she crouched and followed Miranda as they both wore radiation suits) appeared behind him with Miranda carrying a larger version of one of their piped rifles and asked, “Sir, do you want us to inspect the nearby facilities?” Michael turned his head to his right shoulder and said, “Yes Ms. Cruz.  Have all troops inspect and search the surrounding facilities after you unload the food rations and supplies.  Ms. Gala will be needing the ship to return to her home.” The clones showed no sign of puzzlement or shock except Gala while Miranda looked at Michael with a puzzled expression and asked, “Excuse me sir?” Michael looked at Miranda with a serious/scary expression and Miranda stood at attention and replied, “Yes sir.” She turned and spoke to one of the clones as Michael turned to Gala, as she still looked shocked, and she said, “Michael, why?” Michael grabbed her hands and held them with comfort as he stood close facing her and replied, “I need you to go back home.  Tell whoever leads your people about us and that we require their assistance if they can provide.” Gala looked sad and said, “I don’t want to leave you.” Michael stroke her right cheek with his left hand and said, “I will come get you when we are ready.  We will be together again.” They both kissed passionately till Miranda called out, “Sir, its ready.” Gala looked down as she tried to hide away her tears but was unsuccessful as Michael took his left forefinger and touched the single teardrop running down her right cheek and whipped it away.  Michael kissed her on the forehead before she started walking up the ramp before the ramp began closing behind her and she and Michael looked at each other, both with smiles on their faces (except Gala was crying and still looked sadden) before the ramp cut off her view of Michael and closed.


    The ship lifted off and Michael watched where the bridge is (even though he can’t see Gala) and watched the ship fly away till it disappeared in the foggy atmosphere and Miranda approached Michael from behind and said, “Sir, one of our patrols have encountered something that you should see.” He then turned to Miranda’s direction with a serious expression and approached her and said, “Show me.” And Miranda walked away with Michael following her.
