2. Before the Emperor by Promus-Kaa 2. Before the Emperor by Promus-Kaa
A while ago I did a photomanipulation of Captain Kirk meeting Darth Vader ( [link] ) so I guess you can think of this as a follow-up!

Kirk and his people go up against super-powerful beings all the time - pretty much every episode. The Emperor and his magic tricks are nothing new! How will Kirk talk his way out of this one?

Oh, and this has a follow-up, too! See it here: [link]

So, the Enterprise has been captured by the Executor and brought to the second Death Star. Captain Kirk and First Officer Spock have been brought to the Emperor himself.

Ensuing dialogue

"Welcome, Captain Kirk. I have been expecting you. You no longer need those." (Motions his hand, the cuffs on Kirk's hands come off via the Force) (Emperor)
"Guards, leave us." (The Royal Guards leave, Kirk looks into the Emperor's yellow eyes) (Emperor)
"I'm looking forward to obtaining the knowledge of this United Federation of Planets. In time, they shall be brought into the Empire, and you shall call me Master." (Emperor)
"You must be mad to think the Federation would fall to the tyranny of such a despot. You are sorely mistaken, and you won't force me to hand over all the information." (Kirk)
"Oh no, my young captain. You will find that it is you who are mistaken about a great many things." (Emperor)
"His phaser." (Vader)
"Ah yes, a Starfleet-issue weapon. Much like your father's. (referring to Kirk's dad, not Vader) By now you know you cannot escape the allure of the dark side. So shall it be with your friend (he nods to Spock, who just lifts his eyebrow).
"You are wrong. I would rather die than serve you, and perhaps I'll take you with me." (Kirk)
(Emperor chuckles evilly)
"Perhaps you are referring to the location of your Starfleet, coming to rescue you. Yes, I assure you, we are quite safe from your friends here." (Emperor)
"You are an overconfident fool, and it's your main weakness." (Kirk)
"Your faith in your Starfleet comrades is yours." (Emperor, walks away to throne)
"It is pointless to resist, Captain." (Vader)
"Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends, aboard your Starfleet ships, are walking into a trap, as is the rest of your fleet. It was I who allowed your Starfleet to know the exact location of the shield generator. It is quite safe from your pitiful little fleet. An entire legion of my best troops and the finest ships of the Imperial fleet await them. Oh, I'm afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive." (Emperor)
(Kirk looks in helplessness as the Emperor just smiles; Spock remains impassive)

Thanks for comment, and I felt to add another cool dialogue.

And the Death Star vaporizes the Federation ships as they get within range, but then they decide to fight the TIE's instead (but can't, due to the large amount of TIE's from each ISD!) And they are overwhelmed by them, especially the TIE bombers...

Imagine the vision of a person being devoured by ants, or by piranha fish-that will be the Federation Starfleet in a nutshell. Even worse will be the IDS's themselves...

Love the pictures still.
