StarBlade looked at Ramjet, chuckled, then said, "I'm being serious. Weaponry is my secondary programming, so I tend to really like examining other's weapons, and finding out just how much damage they do."

Another look at the laser rifles, and the assassin nodded once. "I don't doubt they could blast the head off of someone, but only if they were either tweeked, or over-charged. I've experience with laser rifles, as I carry two that I convert into a sniper rifle for sniping missions."

Ramjet shrugged and continued the little game. "You gotta keep in mind those things are wired into my power systems, StarBlade. They don't get their energy from a battery pack like most weapons. I can run a lot more power through 'em than you can with a regular rifle."

Shockwave scrutinised Double Punch for half a second
Illogical by this 'Double Punch'. Too eager to introduce himself. Yet, an infusion of enthusiasm will bolster the morale.

Double Punch you will await your turn. Now, Hun-Grr, you may proceed with the extraction of our comrade. Go as Abominus, and report to me once you have arrived back. Ypu are dissmissed.

Now, Double Punch. I would like a full explanation of your arrival, as there is no record of you that I can find."

Hun-grrr nodded. "Nnnn. As you wish."

He spun on his heel and walked out the door, grabbing Cutthroat by the shoulder as he did so. "Follow," he ordered. He pulled the avian along, then opened a comm channel.

"Grrr. Sinnertwin, Blot and Rippersnapper, meet me at the entrance ramp immediately."

Rippersnapper shrugged. "Let's get moving."

"Sure," Blot nodded enthusiastically. He spun around and sauntered off.

"Blot," Rippersnapper said with exhasperation, "the ramp's this way!"

"I knew that," Blot said lamely as he turned to follow.

Sinnertwin listened to Hun-grrr's orders, then looked apraisingly at his wounded flank. Deciding it would heal well enough on it's own, he turned towards Scorponok.

"I'll see you guys later," he told Cyclonus and Tracer as he charged off.

That statement made StarBlade pause. Wired right into his power source? Cripes! Now I know I'd hate to be on the recieving end of those!

"Well then, I guess they could easily blast the head off a 'Bot. Or a 'Con, depending on who it was..." That last was aimed at herself, since she knew Ramjet did not like her, nor did he trust her as far as he could throw her. "I'd like to see those in action one day, preferably aimed towards our enemies."

"Maybe ya will," Ramjet told StarBlade. "But the way things are goin', the only place you'll see 'em in action any time soon is at the practice range. Unless you know someone who'd like to volunteer for target duty, anyways..."

Hatemonger returned to the science bays to admire the new probe.

"This certainly is a piece of work." He told Cryotek.

"You bet your fuel capcator on that." He laughed testing the probe's weapons systems on a few targets.

AngelOfDeath124
2004-07-18, 08:06 PM
The assassin nodded, then smirked.

"Well, off the top of my head, no one comes to mind who would likely volunteer... But you're right. Things have slowed down a lot lately. Though, the humans on this rock have a saying about such quiet times, that they are the calm before the storm. Maybe our storm is building, and will break soon."

Double Punch just smiled. The cold, logical voice of Shockwave almost made him laugh.

"I am a new Decepticon warrior. What more do you need to know? I came to this planet for a purpose, and now, I am here to fulfill that purpose. I am here to win Honour and Glory for the Decepticon army. To destroy it's enemies and see them ground under our feet. All for our Glorious Cause!"

He was laughing with in his mental circuts
I care nothing about glorious causes. I will use these beings for my own purpose. But, if I must wait, play their little lap dog for the time being, I will.

"Now, ....Commander..... Shockwave. What can I do to serve the Decepticon army?"

Lord Zarak
2004-07-18, 11:14 PM
"New warriors only come online if a spark has been granted by the Creation Matrix. As far as I know, Optimus Prime has not tried creating new soldiers for his Autobot Army. Therefore, until now, you were a...hostless spark. That much is logical. As for glorious causes, I am about to commence on a series of actions that will result in a united Decepticon-Autobot campaign to rid Cybertron of the Quintessons. Perhaps you would like to be involved from the start?"

Brave Maximus
2004-07-18, 11:20 PM
A smirk graced Double Punch's face.

"I certianly was not called by any 'Prime'. I came of my own volition. And, though I do not know what a 'Quintesson' is, the conquoring of a planet deffinatly is something I would like to do. I assume that we will.... dispose of the Autobots after we take the planet?"

Lord Zarak
2004-07-18, 11:28 PM
"That has yet to be decided. But, they could indeed outlive their purposes. Now, moving onto present matters, I would like to introduce you to one of your superiors. He has a mission, and I think it would be a good proving ground for you."

Shockwave opened a channel:
"Commander Hatemonger, I would like you to report to my office immediately. Shockwave out."

Cyclonus slowly walked up. Sparks still flew out of him and his vocalisers were still offline but at least he could walk.

He walked into Metrotitan hoping to get everything fixed and eventually be back on the field again or find himself some other work that may not get him damaged as much.

Training Suite, Metrotitan:


Bludgeon: -enters suite, moves to panel on wall, types in a few commands, ends by typing in a code sequence, hits the 'Commit key, moves to middle of the room, seperates from his shell(which clicks shut behind him), moves ten paces away, turns, kneels-

Bludgeon's shell: -kneels, drawing katana and placing it on the floor-

Bludgeon: -pulls energo-katana from his forarm sheath, activates it, places it on the ground before him, straightens, shell mirroring his every movement, smirks slightly- "If nothing else, I have a truly worthy opponent."

Bludgeon's shell: -says nothing-

Bludgeon: -nods, selecting one sword form for himself and sending another to his shell- "Begin."

Voice from panel: "Commencing training program B-1 Alpha, safety protocols disengaged." -mechanical arms tipped with everything from sawblades to cutting torches come out of the walls, angling towards Bludgeon and his shell-

Bludgeon: -leaps straight upwards, grabbing onto one of the arm control servo relays as arms crash down where he was kneeling, flings his hand out, catches his energo-katana as it flies from the floor into his outstretched palm-

Bludgoen's shell: -rolls forward, and then strikes backwards at the arms, not reacting at all as the katana slices cleanly through the arms-

Bludgeon: -slashes his way cleanly and efficiently through the arms, springs from his perch, energo-katana striking at his shell-

Shell: -parries the strike with it's katana, lashes back with a snap kick, blade snapping out from the shell's heel as it kicks at Bludgeon's head-

Bludgeon: -blocks with his forearm, kicking at the shell's supporting leg-

Ramjet made an agreeable noise. "The worst is knowin' that some of my buddies are out there blowin' stuff up right now, and I have a job that keeps me cooped up here. I swear, if I'da known what I was signin' on for when I took the job, I would've let A-Train have me reprogrammed instead." He frowned. "Well, not really. But you get the point."

Hun-grrr scowled at Blot and Rippersnapper as they walked down the ramp. "Nnnn. You're late."

"Sinnertwin isn't here yet," Rippersnapper pointed out.

"Yes, I am." Sinnertwin came into view, having approached from the general direction of Metrotitan.

Hun-grrr held up his hand, cutting off Rippersnapper's witty reply.

"Drrr. We have a mission. Unite."

His steely gaze told his troops that there would be no argument. Componants shifted, meshed, merged. Where five stood only moments ago, there was one.

With a terrifying roar laden with equal parts hatred and fury, Abominus took to the skies.

"The situation is this. A...new warrior has been found" he looked at Double Punch.
"His name is Double Punch. I think he may be useful on this mission. Remove Monstructor, replace him with Double Punch. Take him, and gather the rest of the team. I am about to communicate with Optimus Prime in getting the Autobots help in getting the probe to Cybertron. Are there any questions?"

2004-07-21, 12:51 PM
Hatemonger looked at Shockwave and nodded.

"So how do we plain on getting the probe on Cybertron? Are we going to launch one attack and have another team plain the probe? As I feel one team bring the probe in would be far too easy to spot and track." Hatemonger asked.

Tracer followed along with Cyclonis, even though the other con seemed to have recovered enough to be well on his own. After all, Tracer needed repairs of his own, and it wasn't like he had anything better to do for the moment, now that the Autobots had gotten away. He once again made a mental note to hunt down Blaster for the problem his cassets caused.

"Well my little humanoids"Scalple said to his captives, "it seems that bringing you with me alive is no longer nessessary."

"Yep, I been dead. Unicron's internal defence systems tore me up." Ramjet was mildly amused that he'd managed to get such a reaction out of StarBlade. "Luckily, I got put back t'gether again. Unluckily, that slagheap Thunderwing was the one who did it."

Abominus had to struggle against his baser instincts, all of which were telling him to land and start randomly smashing the icy cliffs. He headed towards the coordinates that Hun-grrr had been given, unclear as to what exactly he was supposed to do when he got there. He knew it didn't involve smashing, though, and that meant his componants would handle it better seperately.

"No, the Autobots need not know anything about the operation of the probe. They are there for one purpose, and one purpose only. It would be illogical for them to know anything about it, and would jeopordise the mission.

You may proceed with gathering the task force whilst I contact Prime. Be ready Hatemonger. I will accpet no incompetance."

Brave Maximus

Double Punch just sat back and watched the interaction between Hatemonger and Shockwave. He remained almost perfectly still, not wanting to bring notice to himself:

Hummm, perhaps this will provide an oportunity. Helping Hatemonger save face will garner me his favor and a debt. Or, should the chance present it's self, allow Hatemonger to stumble, if he is prone to it, and finish the operation itself. Only time will tell, and I can be patient, if I have to

Hatemonger nodded.

"Good enough then." He stood up and did a salute and moved outside of the door.

He then got onto his com-link.

"Monstructor, for the mission to Cybertron you have been removed. Double Punch, you have been added. Bludgeon, Leozak and your men. Please assemble at Trypticon, we will await Shockwave's return from the Autobot camp and luanch with the probe to Cybertron. Hatemonger out."

Hatemonger decided that it would be better to have Doubledealer on the mission. Besides, even with the Breastforce that was only four warriors unless he counted himself.

"Doubledealer, I am granting you permission on this operation. Meet at Trypticon."

Hatemonger was actually in one of his very rare happy moods. Finally, the Decepticons would begin the steps to retake Cybertron. While of course for the most part the Autobots would hide and do nothing. And he was happy with the fact he would be able to slag some of the Quintessians too.

“Just one reason hmm, how while I also like to give a little extra to a paying customer so how about five reasons?” Doubledealer asked nonchalantly. With that Knok jumped up and transformed into his engine mode and connected with the light blaster on Doubledealer’s back. “First me and the boys make quit the team, which leads me to point two, with Knok powering my light blaster am more than whiling to bet that it could blast through you easily. Three your boss hired me which means that for whatever reason wither it be my track record or simply to boost the body count on the mission he wants me here and he might not be happy IF you kill me. Four, I can FLY doesn’t matter how high you jump I can always be just out of reach!” Just to demonstrate his point with a flap of his large wings he hoped up a couple of inches in the air. “And Five,” he said as a loud click indicated that the missile under him was changing the direction it was facing. “I did my home work and my missile is now facing Scorponok, and with a rang of 30,000 kilometers I think it’s a safe bet to say that it will reach him. And though it won’t take down that over grown bug it would case a lot of damage, confusion, and who knows maybe it’ll take down a con or two, Like I said ranged weapons buddy! So how about it willing to bet that you can kill me before I slag both you and maybe some of your co-workers, then go ahead, and as the humans say make my day.”

As Hatemonger brakes up the fight Doubledealer simply shrugs his wings and looks at Hatemonger. “Hey you’re my boss for now, Knok?” with that Knok and Skar jump out of him and he combines with Knok to from his robot mode. And Skar lands on his right shoulder. “So which one of you dumb-o droids will be showing us to our room?” Skar growls out. “You’ll have to excuse Skar here,” Doubledealer says shaking his head. “He gets grumpy easily.” With that he pulls a pack of lead pipes out of sub-space, and takes a bite out of one letting the presser he puts on it in his moth increase until became a gas which he puffed out, he want to take another bite but stopped. “Oh excuse my manners I didn’t offer any of you some!” he says waving out the pack he than turns it towards Bludgeon “How about you katana droid your little cult allow it?

(OOC: I in no way indorse smoking, tabcoo etc it just seemed like something a jerky fellow like Doubledealer would do.)

Hatemonger looked over at Leozak.

"Has the probe been loaded yet?" he asked.

He then turned to Doubledealer.

"Regardless of your problems with Bludgeon I would recommend you both put aside your differences, for your own survival as well as your teams. Watch each other's backs for now. When we return if you still wish to beat each other to a plup I am sure we can find an arena for you to settle your problems." He then looked at everyone.

"I recommend you wait and make sure you have what you need. Carry lots of ammo, we may not be starting the full stike on Cybertron, but let's send as many Quint scum to the Inferno as possible." He then wanted to walk with Leozak to learn more about Trypticon.

Leozak: -looks over at Drillhorn- "Make sure the probe is secured."

Drillhorn: -nods- "Aye, Captain." -goes to make sure that the probe is properly loaded and secured-

Leozak: "Gaihawk, show our guests to their quarters." -looks over at Doubledealer- "No smoking aboard ship. We do have a designated smoking section, though. Trypticon's mouth. He wants to try out his new, extra sharp teeth."

Gaihawk: "Come on, you guys." -heads into the ship-

Bludgeon: -sheathes katana, follows-

Leozak: "All systems are go, Hatemonger. Forcefields and deflector shields are at full operating level, the massed batteries of particle cannons, the main anti-proton cannon is ready, all secondary ion cannons and infinite repeaters are ready." -chuckles- "This battle fortress is probably the most heavily armed thing on this mudball right now."

"Excellent, excellent. Right now we need all the firepower we can get to survive this mission." he paused and waited until the group was out of audio range. Then looked back at Leozak.

Gigatron turned his attention to the interrupting Hatemonger, and his optics lit up vaguely. He could speculate quite a bit about the general's intentions with the query, but his mannerisms certainly seemed to indicate sincerity.

"Unfortunately not. Galvatron has departed Earth to pursue information about our recent enemies, leaving me in charge of the Decepticons while he is gone. I'm afraid I must remain here to direct our war efforts against the Autobots."

Maybe sometime in the future, but not now. There are other targets we can go after, after all...ones with a much lower probability of successful Autobot intervention.”

You may consider yourselves off-duty until you receive your next assignments.” The unsettling smile returned. “All things considered, the mission was a modest success. I’ll make a note to that effect in your personnel records.”

I'm not taking the fallout from his botching this time. Hmpf. The individuals in our ranks do more to foil our own interests than the Autobots do. I don't see why Galvatron tolerates....

Blitzwing snarled and then smirked- coldly.
"You're right Ramjet."
He turned his shoulder towards the seeker as if he were going to leave.

Blitzwing spun as he heard Ramjet lunge at him. He let the fist connect with his midsection and leaned sideways with a successful dodge of the facial shot. Blitzwing returned fire with a left elbow directed straight at the seeker's head and a knee up towards Ramjet's gut.

Ramjet sidestepped, avoiding the knee but taking a glancing blow off his cone from the elbow. He let the impact of the elbow drive him farther to the side, while his foreward momentum carried him past Blitzwing. He swung his arm at the base of the Triplechanger's neck, leading with the butt of his laser rifle.

Blitzwing felt the sharp jab of the butt of the rifle on his neck, but it only made him more irritable. He roared an angry yell and scowled as he spun around to face Ramjet.
"Standing around, you must enjoy being a wall flower... let's put you there."

He clentched both fists and drove them straight for the annoying seeker's wings in an attempt to pin him forcefully against the wall.

Ramjet was taken aback by Blitzwing's attack, finding himself pinned against the bulkhead. His wings hurt, and he assumed they'd been crumpled somewhat by the impact.

Not that that stopped him. Whereas pain would stop or slow down most of his comrades, it fueled Ramjet; it made him stronger. Before now, he'd just been playing, enjoying a little scrum with a comrade. Now, he was really angry.

Now he wanted to put Blitzwing's head on his mantle.

He grabbed the Triplechanger's arms, then drove his cone-shaped head towards Blitzwing's face in a vicious headbutt.

When Blitzwing walked up and interrupted what was a good, and surprisingly civil, conversation between herself and Ramjet, StarBlade was annoyed. Then, when the scuffle started, the assassin simply moved out of the way, so as not be in the way, and to not get injured or pulled in. She watched quietly, till the triple changer managed to injure the Seeker, but before she could do anything, Ramjet, looking extremely pissed, retaliated with a headbutt.

Oooh, this could be bad... but I'm not about to leave, since Ramjet and I were actually getting along. If he needs help, I'm gonna give it. StarBlade took two more steps back, to avoid the fight, but also to put herself into position to offer assistance to Ramjet should he need it.

As the white cone smashed into his face, Blitzwing staggered backwards in pain - his mouth orifice split and began to leak fluid.

A sickening crack echoed in the hallway as Ramjet's foot connected to the side of Blitzwing's knee. The big purple Decepticon's optics flared in a mix of pain and absolute anger.

He wasn't playing at a scuffle anymore. He had been ready to relieve the seeker who had obviously been too bored to stand properly at his post, but the conehead didn't seem bright enough to take the hint.

Denied of the opportunity to send the jet flying down the hall and having his knee joints either cracked or broken, the stakes raised. The triple-changer heaved Ramjet forcefully sideways toward a wall, intending on following the white jet's probable hit with a pummeling fist blow.

Ramjet chuckled as he heard the crack of Blitzwing's knee, but his amusement faded somewhat when his right shoulder slammed hard into the wall. He swung his left arm out blindly at chest level, moments before the Triplechanger's follow-up punch crunched painfully into his midsection.

He met the pain with a grin, as always.

Astrotrain fidgeted with his latest report, trying to drone out the mindless shouting and hitting coming outside his office.

Rumblings indicate many of the front line troops are unsatisfied with current leadership concerns...

Galvatron is withdrawn and reclusive, Gigatron as well. Conclusion? Little faith in current command, justified or otherwise.

Efficiency is down in all sectors. No report as yet of human contractors willing to build War Fleet. Forced conscription possibility?

Hound has been recovered by the Autobots. Consider project an overwhelming failure-

"Failure is something I am familiar with," Astrotrain spat. Lubricant coursed down his brow. And again with that damned SCREAMING!

Prognosis is difficult to ascertain as yet, but communications between other City Commanders has been sporadic, if not nonexistent. Two plots have been detected against you just today.

It is as I have long suspected. Efficiency falls to the wayside when petty ambition becomes the goal of most of the faction. Suggest stepping away from City Commander position, as you will not receive the results you wish for, since many of the others will not permit it. You have done an admirable job, Fleet Admiral, and Megatron would have pleased with your dedication.

Suggest repositioning yourself among more familiar units, but retain an advisory position with Gigatron. You have been chained to a desk to long, and your work woefully unappreciated.

But what did you expect? You know as well as I this is why we're never going to win this 'great war'.

Regards-

Astrotrain rose from his desk and practically flung the door open.

"ENOUGH!" The Triple Changer snapped. "I am tired of this ceaseless jabbering outside my office! Remove yourselves from my presence, or give me your concerns which will properly be addressed-"

He blinked, seeing Ramjet and Star Blade

"I buried your vaporized ashes three years ago, Blitzwing. Explain to me why you stand in front of me now!"

Astrotrain stiffened at this unexpected sight.

Cryotek was amused when he saw Gigatron.

"Another beast warrior. We should talk sometime." He smiled.

"But anyway way down to business. Where the Breastforce rebuild Trips with the Constructicons help I built the probe with my own hands and Mixmaster making the stealth paint I needed for it. I will save you the details but this has top of the line equipment for spying on the Quints coupled with a decent about of firepower and a low yield nuke for that added help if needed.

Man, this place is huge! They sure done a lot around here...

Octane's spectral aura whisked through the halls of the gargantuan city, impossible to detect by any conventional sensors. He'd been searching for Galvatron's lair (or at least one of his brothers') for some time, but it was his first affair in Metrotitan - he was only familiar by his very brief stay in Metroplex twelve years prior. Though he moved with significant speed, he had difficulty covering all sectors of--

Huh?

Octane stopped moving abruptly. Something felt different here. Something... familiar. Something wrong. His omnidirectional viewing field narrowed on a door just ahead and to his left. He floated up to it and read the placard:

Thunderwing... But you ain't the only one in there, are ya buddy?

Octane transposed himself through the door and eyed up the Pretender carefully. Something was definitely wrong with him, and Octane knew just what.

"Pssssst," he whispered as his twinkle slowly began to propogate something visible in the air...

"Okay," he said warily, fighting a smile, lowering his hands. "Let's say I accept this little jaunt. Tell me you have a plan."

Octane would have noticed that Thunderwing's room was most definitely not in order.

The two body forms turned to face him.

Double Punch watched as his oppoent flipped over him and his lunge was missplaced. He tucked in and rolled forward, using his own momentum to roll forward.

Runabout and Runamuck had paced outside the massive mobile command base, bored to termination about how little action they have seen ever since that Autobot attack.

"You think that they would have found something for us to do," Runamuck grumbled.

"Yeah," Runabout replied. "I mean, like, the Autobums invaded us, so shouldn't we be leading an invasion into their territory or something?"

"Well, in any case," Runamuck groaned, kicking a nearby rock and sending it sailing down the way. "We should be doing something."

Darkwing and Dreadwind groaned, seeing that they were thousands of feet in the air, but not under their own power. They then looked at their saviors.

"Probably not," Darkwing replied. "Especially since Screamer here is likely to make us his personal whipping boys as payment or something."

"A few minutes," she repsonded. She then turned her attention back to the fight.

The fight was just getting to be really interesting when Blitzwing took up Ramjet's position as guard. Then, Ramjet turned to her and asked, "I'm gonna to go find somethin' to kill. Wanna come?" The assassin grinned evilly.

(OOC: Note, the italicised conversation is Wingspan and Pounce communicating through internal radio. It's not audible to anyone else.)

The sleek puma form slunk behind a rock, within a stone's throw of Trypticon. Truth be told, he didn't care for the company of the other Decepticons. Nor did he like them knowing where he was. It was more fun that way. His mastery of the night allowed him to slip into any of the Decepticon cities at will.

"Where are you?" an impatient voice echoed in his head. "Gigatron is going to Trypticon's command centre."

"With Leozak, right?" Pounce replied, a touch of a smirk creeping into his voice. "Two of the Breastforce are sitting around out here with Runabout and Runamuck, looking bored."

"Yes well, Gigatron is planning some sort of mission. I think we should be on it."

"Why?"

"Because I'm bored. My skills are going to waste here. And so are yours, Pounce."

Pounce sighed. His brother was right. He missed the thrill of the hunt. And he wasn't bored enough to start hunting Decepticons. Not yet, anyway.

"Alright," Pounce agreed. "Find out more about this mission."

The puma sat on his haunches, and waited for his clone brother to find out more. Wingspan meanwhile, was casually heading for Trypticon's command centre, to do as Pounce asked.

He was more interested, however, in the singular life sign that was likewise heading towards the bridge; the one that he didn't recognise (OOC:Wingspan). The Targetmaster stepped away from his console and moved towards the entrance, timing himself so that he would arrive at the doorway at the exact time that the unknown signal would.

He stepped through the door, recognised the form as that of one of the Decepticon clones, and said, "State your business."

The reply would let him determine which of the clones he was dealing with, he assumed.

Pounce gave a feral smile, as he vanished behind the rocks. In moving forwards, he had given the Decepticons at the bottom of Trypticon's ramp a chance to spot him, and Jalgar was the one who did it. This told him that Jalgar was not unskilled in the ways of stealth and subterfuge either. In a way then, he was a sort of kindred spirit. Except Pounce didn't have any kindred spirits. It did mean that he'd have to be doubly careful around this 'Con.

He slunk away, and made his way around the base of Trypticon's city mode, away from the assembled Decepticons. Above his head was a plasma vent, which he knew was only ever used when Trypticon changed into his dinosaur form.

Bunching his legs beneath him, Pounce leapt nimbly up and into the vent. A few moments later, he'd dropped down into an empty side corridor, and transformed into robot mode.

A sigh escaped him as Decepticon City came into view. After a brief volley with communications for landing clearance, Starscream set down shakily on one of Metrotitan's runways. He looked around briefly, then strode over to a cargo cart and set Dreadwind down.

"Take these two imbeciles to medbay," he addressed Thrust. "I need to talk to Gigatron about this... debacle!"

"I got a name!" the specter fumed. "An' it's Octane!"

The tantrum ended as quickly as it had begun. Octane remembered that Mindwipe was in the same boat he was, and he needed the help.

"Anyway, listen. I got a problem, and I figger maybe you can help out. See, I need a body, but I'm no good with all the technical stuff involved. I possessed an engineer, but it don't help that I don't know what all the stuff in his head means! And I know you're good at this ghost stuff..."

"Yes. Eloquence never was your strong point."

Wingspan stayed seated as Gigatron entered. Rushing up to someone as soon as they walk into a room is not the way to get what you want. He'd wait 'til the Decepticon general had had a chance to do whatever it was he wanted to.

Pounce meanwhile, approached Gigatron's back as he stood in the doorway to the command centre, but he turned away, and paced up the corridor. Wingspan was right, he might have been quite an excellent infiltrator and assassin, but he was no diplomat.

It took him a moment, but he found one deep in the back. Longer and more slender than Bludgeon's Katana. It was a mono-molecular blade, like Double Punches claws. It was long, only 10' Shorter than the Action Master elite robot (so about 30' in length), slightly curved, and a very delecate point. Only one side was sharp, and it had a very destinctive crosshatch. One side going up, the other down. The handle was long enough to hold with two hands, if need be.

After testing it's balance and sharpness (on a near by counter-top, slicing the corner off quite easily), he turned to Bludgeon:

Except my pride when they escape.” Adding the last part after a quick moment of thought. “But I might see about getting a room, could you tell me who’s in charge of that around here?” He than chucked and added. “And if its Ratbat does he charge rent?”

Ramjet's optic sensors honed in on Cyclonus, who was flying seemingly aimlessly around the city.

"Hey Cyc!" he transmitted. "Wanna come with us? We're gonna go stir up a fight with the 'Bots!"

"Astrotrain's in charge, but you wouldn't go to him to get a room." Ransack shrugged. "You can just move your stuff into one of the empty rooms. Just make sure to record it in the city computer." He stepped through the door. "See you around, Roadblock."

Triggerhappy stared wided eyed at Blugeon " well what do you want from me, I doubt you want an apology and I am no match for you, so i don't think you will find your honour there."

he then noticed that blowpipe had arrived

" Blowpipe, enter this requisition into the system " he said pointing at the datapad

Astrotrain typed off a short decleartion of intent from the communication center. He skimmed through it.

"My Lord, if you wish to actually expect this rag-tag faction to achieve results, you must quell all aspects of infighting...Autobot leadership as divided as ever...regretfully, I must step away from this post...tired of inane plots...concerning a possible replacement, recommend one who otherwise would mechinate...the following should suffice..."

He paused, adding a few last minute corrections.

"Considering the tenous status of leadership, we have done as well as expected...I retain my Fleet Admiralship in the hope that...I may still be of some service, should we ever decide to reclaim Cybertron...for now, I intend to rove, and do what I can to see we do not lose all that we gained...remain, Astrotrain."

He finished the message, and walked away.

"They'll be bickering within five astroseconds," he mused, and left the center without another word.

"You obviously didn't do a good job," Dreadwind groaned at Thrust. "They managed to frag us pretty well."

StarBlade quickly caught up with Ramjet, who was inviting Cyclonus to join their little group. The assassin chuckled.

"Think that's wise? I've heard that he's a little... Batty."

“Bye and thanks for the help Ransack.” Roadblock said to the departing Con as he put down the last Cube from his vehicle shell and also left the cargo bay. He than made his way to the nearest computer terminal. “Computer list all unclaimed living quarters.” After a second of scanning the list Roadblock spoke up. “Decepticon Ultra Pretender Roadblock ID 13579 will now be claming room E-6094 is this confirmed?”

“Yes” came the emotionless reply.

“Good!” with that he slipped into his vehicle shell and took off towards his new room.

Double Punch scheathed the sword over his shoulder and stood to the side of his new teacher and a little behind. Folding his arms in front of his chest and flexed his claws a little, smiling at Triggerhappy.

Triggerhappy reached back and pressed a button on his console, activating the weapons systems of the armoury... all of them locking onto Blugeon and Double punch then caught Blowpipe as the Nebulan transformed.

" If thats the way it is, I am sorry for the insult" he said
" NOW GET THE SLAG OUT OF MY ARMOURY " he yelled.

Ramjet wobbled from side to side slightly, the aerial equivilent of a shrug.

"More than a little, StarBlade. But he's good in a fight."

Ratbat's Office

As he was shuffling through some fuel consumption reports, one of the buttons on the fuel auditor's desk began to flash.

What's this, then? Ratbat frowned at the message that appeared on his console when he pressed the button. I wonder what happened to them...I don't recall any mention of them being lost in the invasion.

His frown flattened slightly. It doesn't matter what happened to them. They can be reactivated now, and they can be useful.

He pressed a few buttons, sending commands to the computers down in the stasis facility. The computers then opened the pods that held the now-repaired Predacons.

After allowing them a few moments to orient themselves, Ratbat opened a comm channel to their leader.

"Razorclaw, this is Ratbat. Is your team fully functional?"

Medbay, Metrotitan

Ransack walked down the halls until he reached the Medbay, then entered and sat down. As the Metrodrones set to work repairing his shoulder, he noted that drones were working on a whole swath of other Decepticons as well. Several of them, he realized, weren't from his team.

He glanced casually at Darkwing, Dreadwind and Thrust.

I wonder if their mission failed any worse than ours...

Sunstorm smiled sickly.

"Heh. Some "risking your life" Thrust... more like trying to commit suicide"

He decided to keep what happened in the mission to himself.

Megaplex glanced over at Ransack and then turned back round still contemplating.

"Indeed I will Ramjet. I need something to occupy my

Cyclonus began to follow Ramjet.

Razorclaw steps out of his repair pod a little bit confused, then walks it off. The rest of the Predacons do the same. All of them Transform into their respected forms, and change back to robot mode.

Razorclaw: - Stands infront of his troops - "Fall in". The Predacons fall into line. "Sound off".

Divebomb: D-Bomb reporting for duty, sir.

Tantrum: Ready to smash some 'bots.

Rampage: Ready to strike.

Headstrong: Enough of this already.

Razorclaw: - Opens comlink "Predacons are fully operational and wating for orders commander Ratbat".

Pounce shrugged. He'd decided that waiting around outside the command centre was boring. Wingspan would get in touch with him, once they'd gotten their assignment from Gigatron anyway.

He transformed into puma mode, and stalked off down the corridor.

Meanwhile, in the command centre, Wingspan approached Gigatron

"Commander," he spoke. "Do you have an assignment for Pounce and myself?"

With another combiner unit active, the next fuel raid will be simpler than basic accounting.

Ratbat nodded. “Excellent, Razorclaw. Lead your team to the main briefing room. I will join you there shortly.”

As he flew out the door of his office and into the command corridor of Metrotitan, Ratbat switched channels. “Snap Trap, Icepick and Hun-grrr, are your teams available for a mission?”

Hun-grrr looked away from his console and replied to Ratbat. “Nnnn. Perhaps.”

Snaptrap heard Ratbat's message.

"Yes sir, we will be on our way." he said back into his com-link and gathered the rest of the Seacons.

"Come on you lazy bums time to get moving." He laughed as the six robots filed out towards the meeting area.

Hatemonger was doing pre-launch checks.

Cryotek decided to play around in the labs and see what he could come up with.

"Plenty of stuff to fool around with in here, I wonder what I can make?" He smiled evilly and got to work.

Razorclaw: "Alright Predacons, looks like we have some work to do now."

Headstrong: "Hmph, better be something good, I need to stretch my legs."

Razorclaw: "You'll do as your told ... for now, alright. Follow me, we're heading to a 'briefing' room.

Rampage: "Bah, these decepticons better still have the spirit that they once had."

Divebomb: "Yeah, who knows how long we've been away."

After all the bickering between the Predacons, Razorclaw finally lead them away from the repair pods and to the main briefing room.
