Summary[edit | edit source]

In the Emperor's Palace, the Emperor makes a speech to the Imperial Planets about their dominance over their enemies and pledges that their empire will remain unchanged and eternal. In the streets, the Legion of Super-Heroes engage the unruly mob before Brainiac manages to repair their flight rings and they retreat to atop a building. Pondering the oddity of the people not recognizing flight rings while recognizing shadow casters, Brainiac reveals the readings of the chronometer indicate they are in the wrong universe. On the other side of the continent, the Enterprise crew find themselves pinned down in their firefight against imperial troops before Spock is able to hack into a shuttle. Though the layout is unfamiliar, Sulu manages to start the vehicle allowing the crew to escape. Accessing the ship's computer, Spock begins to study the history of this Earth.

An Imperial squadron picks apart the remains of the time bubble. Identifying it as having been a time machine, they inform Castellan Kajz Dox.

The Legionaries streak through the sky following the signal of Brainiac 5's chronometer. Airborne reconnaissance reveals however that there exist two signals of temporal disturbance. Cosmic Boy decides they will track the closer one and see if they are behind the damage to the time stream.

The hijacked shuttle lands in a mountainous region where Spock reveals what he has learned. The current reality diverged from the primary universe when a different empire rose up in place of the Roman Empire but unlike the Romans, this empire managed to last until the 23rd century. As a result of this, technological development progressed at a faster rate than in the main universe with lunar missions taking place during the Age of Exploration with humanity eventually building faster-than-light starships with the intent of conquering other planets before glumly revealing that he does not believe it possible to return to their home universe. Before an argument can break out, Uhura detects a signal coming from the air.

As the Legionaries touch down, Saturn Girl tackles Brainiac down just as a phaser blast streak through the air.
