The Capture of Chancellor Palpatine

While the battle raged far from his quarters, the Chancellor was ordered to evacuate his apartment and follow an escort led by several Jedi to an underground bunker.


Before they could leave, Grievous crashed though the apartment window, intent on grabbing the Chancellor right in the midst of his security force.

As the chase progressed through Coruscant, Grievous was joined by a squad of his elite IG-100 MagnaGuards. Palpatine's defenders boarded a mag-lev train, using it to reach Palpatine's fortified bunker. Shaak Ti was soon joined by Mace Windu - fresh from an aerial battle with droid starfighters - and Kit Fisto. Battle droids were soon deployed on the train, followed by Grievous himself. Fisto took on the General's bodyguards while Mace dueled Grievous himself atop the train.

The Jedi were able to enter the Cruiser's hangar bay and with the help of R2-D2, find the location of Palpatine, who was alone in a viewing tower on the ship.

What Anakin didn't realize what that the duel was a trap. Count Dooku and Palpatine, secretly the Sith master Darth Sidious, had conspired to turn Anakin to the dark side. Taunted by Dooku and egged on by Palpatine, Anakin used his anger to defeat Dooku, first by cutting off both of his hands and then hold two lightsabers (his own as well as Dooku's) at his throat. Impressed, Palpatine commanded Anakin to execute Dooku, much to the Count's surprise. Palpatine had previously agreed to intervene and spare Dooku, and only then did Dooku realize that he had no intention of doing so. On Palpatine's command, Anakin executed Count Dooku.

Taking an unconscious Obi-Wan with them (despite Palpatine's protests that he would only hold them back), Anakin and Palpatine proceeded to leave.


Unfortunately, the Invisible Hand was fired upon by the Venator-class Star Destroyer Guarlara, heavily damaging the ship and making it difficult for the Jedi and Palpatine to escape easily. As the pilots stabilize the ship, Skywalker, the awakened Kenobi, and Palpatine are all captured and taken to the bridge, where General Grievous meets and taunts them. R2-D2 provided a distraction, allowing the Jedi to fight off the security forces on the bridge and confront Grievous. Before he could be captured or killed, Grievous broke through a window and allowed himself to be sucked out of the bridge (an automatic panel soon covered the gaping hole). With the help of a grappling hook, Grievous made it back onto another portion of the ship and fled in an escape pod, sending out all the other escape pods to spite the Jedi and strand them on the damaged ship. A squadron of massive, mile-long Imperial Star Destroyers cruise in formation with an immense Executor-class Star Dreadnaught - a battleship the size of Manhattan Island. ...


As the ship began to break apart, Anakin took the controls and safely landed what was left of the Invisible Hand on Coruscant, while General Grievous ordered his forces to retreat. With the death of Count Dooku, the Republic hoped that the war would soon end, but Palpatine felt that with General Grievous at large, they were still in danger. This quickly led to the Battle of Utapau. The Battle of Utapau is a fictional conflict that took place in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. ...
