While the primary Decepticon force lashed out against the Autobot City, a scant crew remained with Metrotitan and Trypticon in Carbombya. Leozak and his men have toppled Abdul Fakkadi's government in the country and installed a subordinate democratic regime, presenting themselves as human-friendly to the populace.

With Scorponok's return, the Decepticons hurt in the battle are having their wounds tended in its medbay. Gigatron has ordered the Decepticons to gather their belongings and prepare for relocation to the Nemesis. Technical units have been ordered to install on Metrotitan the parts stolen from Metroplex during the battle to ready the city for transport.

Wheels, the ground-based portion of Duocon Flywheels, has fallen into Autobot custody during the battle. His partner Fly, as well as Windrazor and several other Decepticons, embark on a mission to Autobase to rescue him. Having received a peculiar distress signal from the desert of Australia, a team led by Scorponok has been dispatched to investigate...

Quake arrived at the shuttle bay a bit faster than he really probably should have. But then again soon he would get to hopefully blow something to slag so he waited for Scorpnok and the rest of the team Tiptop and Heater leaned on the wall waiting as well.

After picking up Dragstrip from the CR chamber room, the Stunticons started heading towards Scorponok's exit.
----------

Nightracer entered the shuttle bay, and scanned the area before finding another wall to lean against. As she waited, Nightracer started mentally looking for what would be the best place to shoot Quake and his squishies from.

Somewhere Near Scorponok's exit.

Barricade and Roller Force came towards The Stunticons "What's up?" Barricade asked.

Med-Bay

Ground Hog looked around. Most of the fellow were gone. He thought that he'd be heading out too. Seeing if his comlink would work again he tried to radio Barricade.

The Stunticons stopped and looked down. Dragstrip's look said ' oh look the small inferiors are talking to us', while Breakdown's clearly said ' quit looking at me or I'll step on you', Deadend looked calm and answered Barricade by saying " Nothing worth mentioning."

Wildrider grinned and said "The sky!"

Motormaster glared down at the two Micromasters and said " What the slag do you want."

"Barricade clearly saw the looks in their high faces. "Well-" The Micromaster started but was cut off.
"Ground Hog reporting in."
"Call back later."
"Ok."

Now,Where was he? Oh,yes. Just then,Motorhead came over.
"Hello sir."
"Can I" say one word without being interupted?"
"No." Roller Force chucled.
"Can it, Small One." Oh,great. He was acting as big as the others again.

2005-03-08, 05:53 AM
Less then pleased that the Micromaster hadn't gotten to to the point already, Motormaster crossed his arms and said to Barricade " I'm waitin'."

The glare Motormaster gave to the other two Micromaster promised pain if they interupted Barricade again with anything that wasn't important. The other Stunticons caught the look Motormaster was giving the Micromasters, and were mostly glad it wasn't dirrected at them for once.

Shuttlebay, Scorponok

Scorponok strode into his shuttlebay, amused by the curious stares he had attracted all the way there. He expected all sorts of bizarre rumours were now spreading, but couldn't care less. Now that his moment of vulnerability was past, the troops were welcome to amuse themselves with guesses and stories.

He favoured Nightracer with an amused glance, seeing the way she was sizing Quake up as a target.

Not even at ease among her own kind...I like this one.

The city commander stood in the doorway, arms crossed, expecting the troops to make some sort of cunfused remarks; he'd entertain himself for the moment, until Weirdwolf arrived.

(OOC: For those of you who are wondering, Scorponok's new form resembles his comic incarnation. There's one small difference, though; instead of having a battlestation for his third mode, this Scorpy turns into the head of the bigger Scorponok city. He is identical to comic Scorponok in robot and scorpion modes, though.)

Nightracer shifted her glaze to look over at the 'Con who came into the shuttle bay, noting that he seemed amused by her 'waiting activities'. Nightracer didn't care what the other Decepticons thought about her, but the new arrival gave her another target to come up with ways to take him out. After sizing Scorponok up, Nightracer realized who he was and came to the conclution that he would be harder to take out then Quake would be.

Weirdwolf transformed into wolf mode and bounded off bidding farewell to Carnivac :

"Swindle's quarters we will explore yes , after from mission back I come. Until we meet again teammate".

He arrived in the shuttle bay and looked around

There was that braggart Quake and Nightracer interesting , definitely the greater threat.

Then he spotted Scorponok

Ahh our City Commander has decided to have something more mobile developed , interesting

Weirdwolf moved to stand by the Wall near Nightracer so as to be near the greatest threat .

Our Commander's reflexes will be slow in his new form , so Nightracer is the one to take out first

Weirdwolf reported in :

" ready and waiting for duty am I."

Monzo popped open the hatch to his cockpit and jumped down down to the ground. He strolled over to talk to Heater


"whats ya been up to , didja have a good battle ?"


Weirdwolf's eyes tracked the Nebulan across the room one day i will find a way to reverse the process then my friend your days will be numbered."

" Good hunting..." Carnivac said as Weirdwolf left.
----------

Even as the Headmaster walked in to the shuttle bay, Nightracer was sizing him up and she could tell he was doing the same to her. Besides his shoulder missiles, Nightracer figure Weirdwolf was mostly close combat. Nightracer knew she figured right when Weirdwolf came to stand near her. Now the question was could he kill her before she killed him.

Heater smiled.

"Quite, don't know if I got any kills but put quite a few holes into Kup and Ironhide." He smiled replying to Mozno.

Hatemonger nodded and went back to watching the radar.

Quake could tell he was the burnt of some joke with Nightracer and didn't really care. She could just as easily be in front of his guns as any Autobot he thought to himself.

The monstrous guards stepped aside naturally, each delivering a firm salute, and the one nearest the control panel activated the door. A heavy clank of the unlocking preceded the long and slow whir of the motors pulling the doors apart. An ominous, hulking silhouette filled the doorway before the lights inside the brig picked up: Gigatron glared in.

His steps were slow, heavy, and thunderous. His optics scanned each cell thoroughly and contemptuously, though most were empty. One, however, was not. Gigatron stopped before it, planting his feet firmly into the floor and placing his hands onto his hips.

"Still not talking, Soundwave? Don't think you can hide from me in there..."

The skies over Australia

Greatshot swept in low to the ground, closing fast on the source of the distress signal. Finally arriving, he transformed and landed.

"Okay," he said, looking around. "Where are you?"

Atlas transformed out of the sand and pointed his blaster out, and fired a warning shot past the newcoming transformed. "Autobot or Decepticon?" He demanded as the hatches on his shoulders popped up to reveal the deadly missile payload.

Moving away from the wall, Nightracer took one last look around, before she entered the shuttle. Upon entering, Nightracer found a seat and sat down.

"Autobot," Atlas repeated and his boosters filled over his shoulders, pointing at his foe. The boosters were derived from his cannons, and where still loaded with his artillery shells.

"I am Atlas Omega, and I will crush you, and your filthy weak kind," With that, his cannons opened fire, the found booming as the heavy shells fired, following with the two sets of 5 pack missiles, the wave of spiraling explosives flying up before shoot down at their target.

As this happened he started to open fire with his rifle.

(The mssiles and Artillery shells are the strongest weapons on his body, that is why there are such a limited number of them)

Greatshot attempted to dive out of the way, and that was probably the only thing that saved him from the scrapheap. As it was, he could feel the ordinance ripping into the armor of his legs. Greatshot scrambled for cover and opened up his comm link.

"Skyfall, come in! This is Greatshot. I'm in trouble down here."

Drathal
2005-03-08, 10:39 PM
"Trouble? No, your not in trouble, you are in a scrap heap," Atlas said as he stepped forwad.

He pointed his arm at the cover he had hidden behind, a hatch on his left arm opened, and his armor piercing rocket slid out and fired into the cover as he continued to spray the area with his laser fire.

Leokaiser: -ears prick up on his leonine head- "Pardon me, Hans. I will be back shortly. Somebody off the coast has just launched a nuclear missile." -pauses for a moment- "My, my. Your race is quite inventive. 150 megatons, and highly radioactive. Tut, tut." -kicks in boosters, takes off, arcing up towards the missile as it climbs, pushes his boosters a little harder, pulls bo staff, twirls it, cutting the warhead package off of the missile- "CCCP, huh. If it wasn't so dangerous, I'd donate it to a museum." -grips warhead casing, flings it with all his might out into space towards the sun, flys back down, grabbing the tumbling missile body, crushes the engine section, land in front of Hans and the cameraman, stabs the missile body into the sand next to him- "My only question is, why would they launch a missile like this at us? Why are they so willing to kill everybody in this country just to get rid of us? Do they fear us as demons, or are they tyrants who know that we are coming for them?" -shrugs- "If the latter, then they have much to fear." -twirls bo staff, rests it across his shoulders, a picture of the ultimate in Destron combiner technology-

2005-03-08, 11:09 PM
Greatshot reeled from the onslaught, as what little cover he had was whittled away. Ducking as a large chunk of rock flew past his head, he replied, "Understood. I'll be out of here as soon as I can."

Greatshot closed the comm and readied one of his blaster rifles. Choosing an opportune moment, he peered over the rock and fired off several shots at Atlas.

Metrotitan: Medbay

When the pretender shell was ready the cylinder openned and it stepped out. Sitting up, Carnivac walked around it, scanning it from every angle. When he was done, Carnivac nodded and had the metrodrone bring him copy the shell's blueprints (and medical files) on a datapad. Carnivac put the datapad into subspace and then transformed into his wolf alt-mode.

The pretender shell openned and Carnivac stepped into it, then it closed. Carnivac grinned, stretched, and then used a back paw to scratch behind his shell's ear...being mindfull of his claws.

After a while, Carnivac left the medbay and started heading toward his room.

Greatshot watched the blast approach as if in slow motion. Realizing that he was about to be turned to scrap, he turned and ran.

Suddenly, the world was spinning. Greatshot felt the armor on his back melt, rend, and tear. As he came to a stop, he realized that there was no other option; it was time to run.

"This isn't over," he spit at his opponent as he got to his feet. With that, he transformed and sped away.

Drathal
2005-03-09, 02:20 AM
Atlas's optics narrowed as he transformed once again.

"Weakling Autobot, just as I expected," He said. "Always running away, always proving their weakness," He mused to himself before turning back towards his ruined ship.

He examined the damage on his chest and decided it was managable for now.

Scorponok:Exit

Barricade looked back and forth from his men to the Stunticons "Ummm. Never mind. Roller Force,Motorhead..."

"Yes?" Motorhead asked,half puzzled,half annoyed to see if there was any action around. "What?"

"Let's go. Come with me." Barricade said, Waving his hand in the direction of the inside.

As they walked off, Roller Force looked back at the Stunticons and murmered louder than he should've. "Stupid Guzzlers."

"Higher... No, higher! I'm trying to work here!"

Sledge muttered profanely under his breath and hoisted Grit much higher, taking him higher than the port and causing him to nearly drop the transductor. Grit hissed at the Micromaster holding up his feet, but he decided to get back to work before taking his vengeance.

"Hey, c'mon you two! Let's get this job done!" Stonecruncher cried over the wail of his turbo ratchet.

Grit glared at Sledge, hopped down to the catwalk, and transformed.

"I am finished."

Stonecruncher moved the ratchet to two more spots, worked the bolts, and withdrew to look over his work. He nodded in satisfaction.

"Yeah, same here. Looks good ta me."

Hammer had remained in truck mode, still holding the parts to be installed.

"All right, let's roll! We got another stop to hit!"

The remaining members of the squad transformed, combined, and chugged off for the city hub.

Shuttle, Enroute to Australia

Scorponok piloted the shuttle out of his hold, set a course, and headed towards the distress signal. Activating the autopilot, he turned to face his troops.

"We are heading out to investigate a strange Autobot distress call. When we land, Nightracer will find high ground and cover us. If no contacts are in sight when we arrive, Weirdwolf will track anyone who left the shuttle. Quake and I will accompany him."

He broke into a slight, cruel grin.

"If there are Autobot survivors, kill them on sight. Otherwise, give survivors an opportunity to explain themselves. If I don't like what they say, we'll kill them anyway."

Wildrider and Dragstrip bursted out laughing. Motormaster hmmmed, Breakdown did the transformer aquivilent of rolling his eyes, and Deadend just looked bored. Motormaster continued towards Metrotitan as the other Stunticons got into a conversation.

" His leader waste our time for nothing and we're the stupid guzzlers?" Breakdown said mostly to himself. " What is their malfuntion?"

" Do we really want to find out?" Deadend said, clearly wanting to be some where else...like in his room so that he could touch up his paint job.

" Not likely," Dragstrip said " it would be pointless since its clear that their malfuntion is that their suicidal little lump and slabs."

" Heh... I give his insult a three if anythin'." Wildrider said between laughs.

" More like a negative one." Dragstrip said as he looked at the paint on his fingers. " I've heard Autobots who knew better insults."

"We've heard you give better insults, Draggy." Wildrider said, before Dragstrip started trying to strangle him while yelling " DON'T CALL ME DRAGGY, MANIFOLD MOUTH!!!"

" Now that is pointless." Deadend said, shaking his head.

Breakdown shrugged, then said " I've stopped giving a flyin' interface a long time ago."

"Don't worry if there are any Bots down there I will fill them so full of holes that we can use them as a large pencil holder!" Quake said ready to go.


*********************************

Cryotek smiled as Mixmaster whistled along with him. He then paused and went serious for a bit.

"Constructicons. I have completed the rewiring and repairs of Metrotitan's optics. I am looking at the damage optic I removed and I do believe I can fix it up so that we have some spare parts on reserve. Replaced some fried circuit boards and the like. How is everything looking on your end?" He commented.

"Hmm nothing to exciting going on today." He said to Spinster still keeping his optics and audio sensors on the systems.

Atlas walked over to his shuttle and glanced at his former hiding place. Internally cursing himself, he walked in for the remaining scraps of energon onboard. He walked outside, doing what little repairs he could.

Transforming back into his hovering artillery mode, he sifted over the sand and turned his sensors to the world around him, canning as much as he could, trying to anticipate anything.

He then detecting something at distance and closing...

Roller Force turned at the insulting laughs.

"Don't even."Barricade began. "They're to busy to even keep the thought in their hollow heads."

Roller Force didn't care. He lunged,about to charge.

Motorhead grabbed him,but was thrown back. "Hey,What's gotten into you?"

Roller Force said nothing.

"Halt. You're not stronge enough."Barricade said turning his head to the Stunticons "Nor smart enough. Let's go."

"What?" Roller Force asked. "Huh?" His teeth grit. He found the nearest thing and punched it.

"Before there's a fight. Let's get going." Barricade signaled.

"If I were in charge things would be diffrent." Roller Force muemered.

Medbay, Scorponok:


Bludgeon: -meditating, katana hovering in the air before him, sliding deeper into his meditative state-

-*-*-*-*-

Bludgeon stood, the windswept plain before him littered with the bodies of the dead, many killed by his own hand, many others killed by his bretheren in the life-path of Metallikato.

He sees his Master, fighting away with the rest of the students, first taking on all comers, and then..... as has always been the case, down through the endless tracts of time, since the precepts of Metallikato were laid down by the Ultimate Warrior..... then the best of the best did as they'd always done.

They turned on each other.

He can see himself now, younger, minus his Pretender shell, slashing his way through his fellow students, effortlessly slashing his way through the younger students, culling the weak.

Events speed up now, time flashing forward..... the achievement of the Pretender shell, the forging of his katana by the weaponsmith, Goth.... More challenges, more duels, more students of Metallikato facing each other when no other challenge presented itself.

Until all that were left were Bludgeon and his Master.

The fight was a surprisingly short one, the Master all too soon lying in a slowly spreading puddle of his own fluids, flickering optics locked onto the empty sockets of Bludgeon's shell, and the old martial artist smiled. With his last flicker of life, he said, "Truly, you are the greatest of us all, Bludgeon...... Truly, you are Death Incarnate....... Go forth, bring what the Ultimate Warrior has taught us to the unworthy......"

Then everything is gone, the bodies, the stentch of death, the devistation..... and Bludgeon is left facing himself.

The younger glared at the elder. "What do you think you are doing?"

The elder gazed back at the younger. "I serve Gigatron, now."

The younger spat. "'Serve'? 'SERVE'!!!! We are the best of the Way of the Ultimate Warrior! I, as I was then-"

The elder scowled at the younger. "-and I as I am now. But I have the one thing that you do not. Experience." The scowl changed, the skull's smile becoming more evil, more of a beckon to Death's cold embrace. "We shall do as we have always done. We shall bring death to those who are unable to stand before us."

The younger gave the impression of a cocked eyebrow. "Really. And this also means that you'll be an obedient dog to that milti-changer?"

The elder's scowl deepens. "No. But he did defeat us in fair combat. That earns him some respect." The elder took a step forward towards his younger self, grin widening as he saw his younger self take an instinctive step backwards. "And I truly see you for what you are. You are simply a manifestation of my fears. And I have no further use for you."

In a flash, it was over, the elder returning his katana to it's sheath, as his younger self's body fell to the ground, the head rolling off to the side. The elder looked to the heavens, calling out: "HEAR ME, ULTIMATE WARRIOR! I AM THE GREATEST OF YOUR STUDENTS! I AM AS YOU CREATED ME TO BE- DEATH INCARNATE!!!!!!!!" Then the elder lowered his voice. "And woe be to those who stand in my way, for I shall surely kill them all."

Even thought Motormaster didn't outwardly show it, he had been listening in on the Mircomaster's conversation. By the end, Motormaster thought slightly more of Barricade then he did of the other two. At least he's not a complete slagging idiot, Motormaster thought.

Shuttle, Enroute to Australia

After flying several minutes in silence, Scorponok guided his shuttle down towards the desert.

"Prepare yourselves, troops. We don't know what we'll find when we get there."

Setting the vaguely insectoid shuttle down a safe distance from the source of the signal, Scorponok locked down the systems and lowered the entrance ramp.

"See to your assignments."

He strode down the ramp, optic band narrowed as he tried to see through the blowing sand and sunlight glarind off the ground. An electric charge build on the tip of his tail. His claws flexed in what looked like an involuntary tic, but was really a carefully-calculated display of power.

Bugly's Quarters, Scorponok

As Bludgeon ended his meditation, a ripple of energy crossed Bugly's spark. The Circuit-su master's optics flickered to life, and he stood smoothly. A quick glance at the Pretender shell in the corner of the room showed that it had repaired itself fully. The strategist's spark energy was likewise replenished.

Banishing his shell to subspace, Bugly walked out into the hall.

The shuttle flew overhead and Atlas looked up, seeing the large decepticon signature. He saw it land in the distance out of site and growled.

He hovered for a moment before transforming and hit his boosters, blasting across the sand as it blasted behind him in a wave.

His boosters gave out just as he slid to the side of the shuttle.

"Decepticons I presume?" He asked in his deep robotic tone.

He had no idea Decepticons where on this miserable little mudball, this could most definately work to his advantage...

"So are we all agreed?" Laser demanded of the two pairs of eyes which were squarely focused on him. "We find the master and then we reactivate him!"

Laserbeak had taken charge. Ravage was cunning, but an uneffective teamleader - he needed guidance and control - like a rabid dog. Slugfest was stupid - he had enough brains to follow orders and that was it - it was a miracle he'd come this far by himself!

The trio climbed from the chamber and, following laserbeak's lead, selected a shaft to climb into and follow. Slugfest grunted to himself, the condor always knew what he was talking about, so best to follow him and smash everything were needed...

"There is no point in conquest, their is only purging of those who cannot defend themselves. The strong rule, they have no use for conquering, as the strong already own anything they want, the weak merely think it belongs to them," Atlas pointed out.

As far as he was concerned, if you where stronger, whatever you wanted was rightfully yours, regardless of who had it first. So in his eyes, the decepticons weren't conquering anything if they where stronger then their enemies.

Revenge is what was on his plate right now though, he'd worry about the Decepticons later.

Just what the Decepticon army needs, a lunatic that hunts his own kind, Nightracer thought as she narrowed her optics. That kind of mech couldn't be trusted, and sure there were some Decepticons who could be discribed that way, but they had started off as Decepticons...not Autobots.A person would have be a fool to trust a Decepticon or a mech willing to turn his back on his faction. That kind of transformer would be willing to do so again on his suppose allies. Nightracer sat down in a seat where she could watch Atlas. If the ex-Autobot even looked like he was going to use his missiles, Nightracer was going to see to it that was the last mistake he ever made.

Damn his own kind for causing their demise, without his men, those under his command, he felt a piece of himself gone. Conquest had been the last to die...

Now here he was, alone, well, he felt alone, he obviously wasn't alone.

Breakdown was the first Stunticon to finish packing, mostly because his programming wouldn't allow him to keep much stuff. In Breakdown's mind, rooms were suppose to be a place he could feel safe in and other beings were untrust worthy...meaning having nothing in it that would watch him or mostly keeping what you had in subspace always.

Breakdown looked around the room, making sure he didn't forget anything. Then the paranoid Stunticon looked over at the recharging bed in his room and said to it " Nothing personal."

With that Breakdown stepped out of his room and closed the door, activated the detinator he had been holding in one of his hands and listened as the bombs he set up on the bed exploded.

The explosion caused the other Stunticons to take a look outside their rooms. Motormaster was the first to go back to his packing while mumbling about paranoid miss-clocks and his need to blow things up every time they moved. Dragstrip wondered if he would ever be rid of these idiots. Deadend discided it wasn't worth getting involved. Wildrider walked over, ignored Breakdown, openned the door and looked in.

The Battlechargers had found little to do since returning to Carbombya. That was mainly due to the fact that the place was so boring.

"Maybe we should ask the big cheeses if we can get some time off to go blow stuff up for fun," Runamuck said.

"I dunno," Runabout muttered. "Don't think they'd like to get any deserters."

"Screw that!" Runamuck shouted. "I'm bored. I'm gonna go find something to do!" And with that, he transformed and sped off.

Runabout sighed, and followed, thinking, "I got a bad feeling about this."

Scorponok: Mess Hall

Nightracer entered the mess hall and looked around before walking over to the bar. Judging by the look the Bartender gave her, he still remembered her last visit and was less then thrilled to see her back so soon. Nightracer discided to try to ignore the look and turned to face Atlas.

" As you may have guessed, this is the mess hall...also called the cafeteria, bar, and the 'other' morgue." Nightracer said to Atlas, using one hand to briefly point at the Bartender (and the list of energon/fuels/other things transformers consumed behind him) " Give him your drink order when you chose it...I suggest you don't order any of the 'specials'."

Hatemonger looked at Scorpnok.

"None as of yet. Thought Trypticon is having some dealing with the humans. But I was told we are not to assist. Apperently, we are finally taking the mental warfare to the humans." He said addressing the citycons robot form with an equal amount of respect.

He then turned on a screen set to Earthling TV signals.

"There." He pointed at the EDC fighting Trypticon and the Breastforce.

In the low lighting, it was almost difficult to see the shadowy figure emerging from the floor in the hall. The arms crossed easily over the chest, though it was difficult to tell through the silhouette covering him. Two crimson slashes darted through the darkness, leading the way for Gigatron to step into the room. He easily spotted a large and unfamiliar form and watched his motions for a moment. Finally, he nodded toward Nightracer casually.

"This would be our new arrival, then?"

" How was the mission?" Carnivac asked Weirdwolf, as he went to open Swindle's door.Carnivac hoped that since the Combaticons were no longer with the Decepticon army and Metrotitan knew that, their doors wouldn't be locked. It was the easiest way in and if that didn't work, Carnivac would then resort to other means. Sure there was a chance someone had already claimed them, but Carnivac perfered to worry about what other sercurity systems Swindle might have put up.

Unless there has been another arrival while I was gone, Nightracer thought as shifted her optics from Atlas to Gigatron. " Yes." She calmly said to him.

Scorponok nodded gravely.

"Good. We've underestimated the fleshlings for far too long already, even after they've caused so much trouble."

He scoffed as Hatemonger activated the viewscreen, though he felt little mirth in reality.

"They're keeping two groups of humans from killing eachother, apparently. The humans won't know what to think."

He nodded in approval.

Gigatron took a few slow, calculated, yet casual steps toward Atlas Omega. He sized up the arrival with divided interest. Though the newcomer was significantly larger than the Decepticon commander, Gigatron showed no intimidation.

"Autobot indeed," he mused as he circled Atlas slowly. "I find it peculiar that you would leave the cowards to join the conquerors. Their brainwashing seems rather difficult to break..."

Gigatron stopped before Atlas and looked up to his optics. His arms remained folded over his chest; a nearly imperceptible smirk showed on his face.

"To be frank, you'll explain why I should think you're more than a spy, or you'll be slain. We Decepticons do endorse freedom of choice."

"Because they are weak close minded fools," Atlas answered in a dark tone to Gigatron. "They did not appreciate my tactics, they had me doing lowely duties, like protecting the weak as they fled," He explained. "I hate the weak, they are what caused the death of my unit. Because we did real battle with your kind, and not just holding you off, we were considered criminals, merely because a few pathetic weaklings got caught in the crossfire,"

"I am the last of my men. I am not betraying the Autobots, they have betrayed me, and themselves," He informed. "I want to see their remains scattered by the wayside,"

"I can't believe my men and I were so blind as to trust them, even at the moment of our construction,"

" You have to agree that we use to shot what side changers we had, more often back then." Carnivac said as he fired his optic beams at one of the three spots. As it was destroyed, Carnivac looked at another spot and fired.
---------

If Atlas Omega's tale was true, Nightracer could agree with his need for revenge and that he was a fool...in more ways then one. There was more then a chance that the story was false, after all a spy would give a simuliar story and probably had in the past. Even she knew that if the higher ups believed his story (or even if they didn't believe it) and didn't kill him, then they would threat him like they did the weak... be used for what ever he was worth, then left to his fate.

Gigatron kept his optics locked on Atlas Omega's as the giant spoke his tale. He knew that the optics were more likely to betray the truth than the vocoder. However, there was a particular passion in the way he spoke. If he was an infiltrator now, he must have been a skilled actor before the war.

"Very well," Gigatron shrugged as he turned back for the door. "We will be relocating shortly. Nightracer, see that our friend finds his way."

(Though he was not foolish enough to trust words without actions, Gigatron decided he could allow such test to wait. There was little a spy could gain from Scorponok now, and when they reached the Nemesis, there would be too little room for Atlas to get far unseen. And if Nightracer's last-rites beacon signaled, he'd have his answer...)

Once in the hall, Gigatron transformed again to racer mode and clicked on his comlink while he sped off.

"Scorponok, if you're ready to depart, prime the city's thrusters and order your constituents to relocate in the desert."

Scorponok nodded, grunting agreeably. Whether this was in response to Hatemonger's comment or Gigatron's order wasn't immediately clear.

"All hands, pack your belongings and make your way towards the exits. You will be departing for the Nemesis shortly."

Without any visible signal on Scorponok's part, the city's engines began their warmup sequence. Finally, he gave Hatemonger a nod.

"Another time, General."

When the last spot had been destroyed, Carnivac followed after Weirdwolf. Stepping into Swindle's room was more like stepping into a warehouse then a room. Carnivac didn't know how Swindle had been able to get so much stuff in such a limited space, and still have it all (more or less) in order. True; the recharging bed that usually came with the room was missing, but Carnivac was sure the beds didn't take up that much room.

Looking around at the stuff in the room, Carnivac noted that some things were easy to identify. Those things were storage cylinders, foot lockers, shelves, a work bench, minature lap, and what looked to be the start of a small armoury. Yet, other things in the room were unknown to Carnivac and he was pretty sure he didn't want to know what they did.

Weirdwolf wondered what the others of the teams rooms were like he would sure like to get a look at some of Onslaughts books and data files, his strategic and tactical library was quite comprehensive or so he'd heard it might even a copy of " Epicentre's Strategies and Battle tactics for Small Unit combat Situations "

Nightracer turned and started to head out side the mess hall. When she got to the door, she looked back at Atlas and said " And I never said you had to help me pack."

Continueing to look around, Carnivac wondered how much of this stuff Swindle had booby trapped. Then sighing and hoping it didn't explode, Carnivac opened one of the footlockers.

Scorponok snorted with amusement, then replied to Hatemonger's comm.

"I have a feeling that the Autobots would get suspicious if their sattellites pick up my city hovering over the Nemesis disgorging waves of troops. For those of us that can't fly on our own, a shuttle would be the best bet."

As he spoke, the city commander mentally ran through the list of ships berthed in his docking bays.

"Ah, yes. There's a small cruiser-carrier in bay four that should be big enough to accomodate most of my inhabitants, though they won't be all that comfortable. The Flamberge, it's called. I suspect you're familiar with it, since I found it parked in the desert outside the base you established during your tenure as commander of our forces on Earth."

Bugly placed his right hand on the Mayhems' shuttle, allowing small currents of dark energy to flow out of him. The energy probed the shuttle's systems, running through circuits and systems. The Pretender's face went blank as he concentrated on evaluating the ship's systems. Finally, he recalled the energy and nodded.

"The shuttle will fly," he pronounced with a slight sigh of fatigue. "Provided we secure a new hatch, of course."

Octopunch (now clad in his shell, which he had recalled from the training deck) snorted derisively. "Yeah, if your lightning show didn't blow any fuses. Next time try using the diagnostic computer, you freak."

Hook packed some art that was more...classy, as well as his favourite set of surgical tools.

Scavenger filled his subspace pocket with the miscelanious junk that he'd accumulated over the years. He vaguely wondered why he kept collecting the stuff when Swindle wasn't around anymore to sell it to, but shook his head to dismiss that thought.

Mixmaster carefully subspaced several vials of dangerous chemicals, as well as his chemical testing equipment.

Long Haul took his kit of repair tools, though he wasn't quite sure why. It's not like his teammates actually let him fix anything...

The Stunticon reaction to the Constructicons could best be discribed as mixed. Deadend stared for a while, shrugging before finding a seat. Dragstrip sneered in disgust before walking away. Wildrider giggled while remembering when he found the place where Metrotitan stored he's paint supply. Breakdown started figiting and looking for a place to hide. Motormaster narrowed his optics, but returned Scrapper's nod.

Hatemonger and the Predacons were nearing the Brig.

Hatemonger turned and looked at Razorclaw.

"Have your weapons ready. If they do anything feel free to subdue them. However try to leave them operational. I concur with Scorpnok that more troops would be most useful. However, if one or two should perish due to their own lack of intellgence I probably won't punish any of you." Hatemonger said a cruel smile on his face.

Major Bryan Trent, commander of the spectacularly unsucessful EDC sortie, turned to look at his comms officer.

"Yes, Lieutenant?"

"We're getting new orders from Headquarters, sir." He frowned. "General Samson wants us to return to Tripoli base immediately."

"About bloody time," the Major replied. "Relay the orders to the rest of the column, Lieutenant. Corporal Dyer, turn us around and head back to base. Guns, keep firing until we're out of range."

Razorclaw turned back to his men and told them what Hatemonger told him. He withdrew his sword as did the other Predacons.

"It is sad that the first thing we get to kill is a Decepticon, however a traitor is different."

Ravage
2005-03-30, 01:27 PM
Hatemonger overheard Razorclaw and nodded in agreement. During his time with the Decepticons even he himself certainly had his share of grudes with Decepticon leadership. But he always had the spark to bring those arguements up and face leadership in the proper arena.

It was fairly rare that he lost. With the events with Teratron being the only time anyone under his command decided to try to chage the odds themselves. Soundwave and his minions were weak and there attempt at taking leadership cost the Decepticons a major advantage with Metrotitan.

Hatemonger got onto a com-link with Scorpnok.

"We are nearing the brig. Can you seal off the air ducts Z90 and X27 which are the only two near the brig? I want to try to prevent the cassettes from being able to escape." He asked getting ready to move in.

Razorclaw heard Hatemonger give his orders and had a thought.

"If they hear the ducts closing off, they'll know their escape route is cut off. Which means they'll either accept their fate or start firing off rounds. In both causes, it isn't going to bo good. For us or them."

After he was done with his brief nod, Motormaster went and leaned up against a wall. Still in talking distance, the Stunticon leader waited to see if the nod was all Scrapper wanted (it probably was). If for some reason Scrapper wanted to have a conversation. Then Motormaster was planning on using it to kill some time while waiting for the Flamberge to lift off. After all, Motormaster didn't have a reason to hate the Constructicons...yet.

Hatemonger listened as he heard the air ducts shut down.

He saw the Predacons were ready and pressed the buttons on the sliding doors to enter the brig and nodded to the Predacons before entering the doorway first.

He readied his weapons and spoke loudly and in a very serious tone.

"Decepticon tapes, surrender now or face dire consequences." Hatemonger readied his fusion cannons at their lowest power levels. More than enough to seriously damage any of the cassettes stupid enough to attempt to fight, yet hopefully reducing any major damage to the brig. Plus, he knew all of his possible attackers capablities so he readied himself in case Rumble or Frenzy tried to shake up the place.

Even thought part of him didn't understand what was so exciting about a library, Carnivac looked over at Weirdwolf in amusement and soon wished he hadn't. The look on Weirdwolf's face was funny, but Carnivac reminded himself that Weirdwolf hadn't laughed at him when he had howled.

" Remember I did do it first," Carnivac said while cocking his head to the side " Beside you only have to worry if you start howling at the moon."

Without waiting for Weirdwolf's answer, Carnivac's pretender shell opened and Carnivac stepped out, transforming into his robot mode. If he was going to search throw a library, then his claws would only get in the way and might damage something. The pretender shell closed up, sat down, and made a snorting sound.

Laserbeak and the other cassetticons had registered that the airducts had slammed shut. The damage to overkill had been severe, he and the other cassetticons were not trained enough to be able to adequately fixed him.

As the doors slid open and hatemonger had enter the room, fusion cannons outstreched, Laserbeak had darted up to the ceiling of the room - his usual spot for being out of reach.
Slugfest, was off to one side of the room - he braced himself to pounce on the intruder. Frenzy readied pile drivers to shake things up - although his repairs were shakey at best - there was no guarantee he'd even function properly if he tried.

Ravage was no where to be seen...

From his bird's eye view, Laserbeak watched Slugfest rear up and dive at Hatemonger...

He quickly brought left arm up to protect him from the tape dinosaur and with his right hand in a swift movment brought his energon saber online.

"Fools, we off you a chance to avoid being sent to the pit and do you take it?" Hatemonger growled and slashed at the dinosaur.

Hatemonger paused and glanced up scanning the ceiling he saw Laserbeak was probably just recording the situation but got ready in case there was a combined strike.

"Rejoin us and I will see to it your comrades are repaired. The ball is in your court." Hatemonger said and awaited a reply.

Ravage shifted uneasily where he stood. He was a creature of the shadows and hated being placed on the spot like this.

Laserbeak considered the proposal - it didn't take long to decide what was the best thing to say - they were in a weak position at the moment and it made no sense to be renegades.

"We accept - but you must repair Soundwave and all of the other cassetticons!"

Hatemonger nodded.

"Right now I know Gigatron has Soundwave. Considering his actions he is lucky to be alive much less in one whole piece. I cannot promise whether or not he is still online or not. However." With that Hatemonger sheathed his energon saber and walked into the brig, a quicky eye back to the Predacons telling them to shoot any Cassette that tried anything stupid.

"I did promise repairs to your comrades that I intend to keep." Hatemonger said picking up Frenzy and Slugfest rather gently considering Hatemonger's size.

Hatemonger got onto a com-link to Gigatron and Scorpnok.

"The cassettes have decided to rejoin our cause. I promised repairs to their damaged comrades and I intent on keeping that pledge. Permission to stay onboard Scorpnok until the cassettes repairs are complete? I will stay with Cryotek and have him fix the cassettcons. Advise?" He asked waiting for a response.

He activated the speakers in Onslaught's old quarters.

"Carnivac, Weirdwolf, stop stealing from the dead and get to the ship! The Flamberge leaves in fifteen minutes, and anyone staying in my city without permission will suffer greatly!"

When Weirdwolf took off his head, Carnivac's pretender shell turned it's attention to Monzo. The shell looked over at Carnivac and Weirdwolf for a few moments, then started to sneak up behind the Nebulon.

" I hate to say it, but before the war I worked on a law enforcement team," Carnivac said while wondering how Scorponok was expecting Weirdwolf and him to be on the Flamberge in fifteen minutes when they were on a moving Metrotitan (and when had Metrotitan became Scorponok's city anyway?).

Just to be on the safe side, Carnivac made a mental note to avoid Scorponok in the future as he added " The hunts were one of the cases my partner and I investigated. Still it turned out to be one of the more interesting ones."

The pretender shell laid down when it noticed Weirdwolf glaring at the Nebulon, hoping that Carnivac would be able to regain the headmaster's attention.

" Anyway, it turned out that a group of Cybertronians discided that drones were to boring to hunt...so they put the lasercores of enemies, annoyaces, or even empties into the drones' bodies and hunted them. Some of the group worked in the smelting pits, so they got rid of the left over body and no one really cared about what they thought were drones." Carnivac said " Razorsharp did almost the same thing, except he skipped the drone past."

" The shell developing a personality is on the possible side effects list." Carnivac admited.

Hearing his name called, Carnivac looked over at Monzo. So that's why the shell has been up too, Carnivac thought before debating weither or not he should stop the shell from eating the squishy.

Still don't want me to eat him, the shell thought even as Carnivac said "Is he usually this stupid?"

Monzo glares and shuts up

Weirdwolf intently studies a blueprint pinned to one wall , half of him mentally willing Monzo to continue with the taunting

" After all, a smart Nebulon would realize where he was before he started taunting." Carnivac said calmly.

Command Deck, Scorponok

Scorponok activated the city-wide comm one more time.

"All Decepticons still onboard, depart for the Nemesis immediately. This is your last warning. If you need transport, report to the Flamberge in bay four. It will be leaving in five minutes.

"General Hatemonger's group is exempt. All other Decepticons, depart immediately."

He recorded the message, then set it to playback mode.
___________________________

Flamberge

A small Decepticon walked into the ship; barely the size of a Micromaster, coloured dark pink and blue, he was hardly an impressive figure. If one could see his back, the reason would be perfectly evident. He was an orphaned Headmaster, a Nebulan who's Transformer partner was no longer among the living.

Well, that's how it was supposed to have gone, anyway. But in practice, it hadn't turned out that way; when the Transformer had died, his spark had taken up residence within the Nebulan's cerebral cortex. The result was that they were both now occupying the Nebulan body; humbling for the Transformer, but positively infuriating for the Nebulan.

Lokos hopped up onto a seat not far from where the area that the Constructicons had occupied, and watched the technical team...which seemed to be engrossed in painting itself orange for some reason.

In the Medical bays - the repairs hard been completed to the cassetticons - they were all now operating at an optyimum level of performance.

"Do you hear that alarm?!" Frenzy spoke. "We gotta get back to the Nemesis."

"We cannot leave without Soundwave" Laserbeak replied.

"He's probably off of here already and going back to the Nemesis" Rumble chipped in. "We need to get back to the Nemesis and find him there."

Frenzy turned on his heel and headed for the door.
Rumble followed him.
Ravage followed him,
Slugfest and Overkill followed him.

Laserbeak shifted uncomfortably and then reluctantly followed.

They headed for bay four.

Monzo replied :

" you calling me stupid you empty you and ya , flea ridden organic excuse for a wolf ."


Weirdwolf grimaced and wondered what to do next

Infecticon
2005-04-06, 08:01 PM
Carnivac glared at the Nebulon for a while then turned and said to Weirdwolf " Unless this squishy can become your head again, I suggest we ransack Brawl's and Blast-off's rooms some other time. There is no way I'm carring this manifold mouth while searching and if I put him down my shell will try eatting him again. Besides Gigatron would probably put us on a broken wing if the Metrodrones report us here."

Then Carnivac turned and said to Monzo " You insult like an Autobot. Not only is your primary stupitidy, but your also a miss-clock, lump and slab burnout with suicidal tendencies...if you can't understand what I just said, then I'll be happy to explain there meaning to you using simple words."

Monzo groaned as he tried to get up and his leg failed him

"oy Wolfy we're supposed to be a team just don't stand there help me , dont let the dried up failed police bot yank my chain . "


Weirdwolf sighed and reopened Monzo's voice frequency in his auditory senors , as he noticed Monzos lips moving as Monzo looked at him.

He opened a private frequency with Carnivac

"my apologies my partner for , i think we i think we need medical attention for him to seek , will you lend me a hand and him lower into my back compartment , but if shell can that much control feel free to him a scare give before do so you do "

out loud he said


" a good idea that sound think i "

" Ahhh...the poseurs is still trying to catch a nova." Carnivac said mockingly to Monzo, while using his control link with his shell to talk to it. It didn't take long for the shell to grin evilly and agree with the plan. Satified, Carnivac moved to do what Weirdwolf had asked.

As Carnivac was about to put the Nebulon into the compartment, the shell surge forward with an open mouth. As it was, Monzo in Carnivac's hand got a very close up view of the shell's fangs and mouth, before that mouth snapped shut only a few inches or so from the Nebulon.

Monzo fainted dead away as white as a sheet

Weirdwolf grimaced at Carnivac and then popped open his hatch cover.

least quiet now is he yes ?"

Infecticon
2005-04-07, 12:01 AM
When Monzo fainted, both Carnivac and the pretender shell burst out laughing. As the shell continued it's silent laugh, Carnivac noticed Weirdwolf's grimace as he put the Nebulon in the compartment and said " You mean that's not what you had in mind when you said I could scare him?"

Hatemonger smiled as the cassettecons walked off.

He then turned and looked at Cryotek.

"Well it looks like the repairs went just a bit faster than we thought." He laughed as Cryotek nodded.

"Well shall we head to the shuttle?" Cryotek asked.

"May as well." Hatemonger said and got back onto his com-link to Scorpnok.

"Repairs on the cassettecons are finished. Your Scorpion drones worked extremely well as if there was any doubt. We are headed to the shuttle." He said as him and Cryotek headed for bay four.

Hellbat: -standing next to the doors-

Leozak and LioBreast: -escorting Nick and Browning-

Leozak: "My name is Leozak, human. Not 'Leodude'. -looks over at Hellbat-

Hellbat: "The room is ready for them, Leozak."

Leozak: "Excellent." -holds hand out-

LioBreast: -leaps into the air, transforms to gun mode, lands, grip first, in Leozak's hand-

Leozak: -touches a control on the wall next to the door, door hisses open- "There will be someone sharing the room with you. We aren't used to having so many of your kind aboard."

Fakkadi: -still in his cage, sees Nick and Browning- "GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!"

Leozak: -aims at Nick and Browning-

Hellbat: -breastplate transforms to gun mode, lands grip first in his hand, aims at Nick and Browning-

Leozak: "I hope you enjoy your stay. There is no working computer terminal, we had them removed. There is nothing for you to tap into. You will remain here until Gigatron lets us know what to do with you. Now get in the room."

Leozak: -sighs- "I should have just let you hypnotize them......"

*Turns around holding Browning*

Nick: Stop Leozak we are here following a destredd call from Starscream from 2005 if you allow me to play the message and explane why im here i think we both and lessen ourselvs a little stress.

*stares at the Transformers with Fakkadi*

Nick: ok first of all I am not fighting for the autobot cause although i did help in the construction of Autobot City *brings out lab top* this is the message i recieved from Starscream

*message starts playing but sounds like Megatrons voice*

This *static* Deciptcon leader *static* Starscream *static* take command *static* Megatron *static* must revive the rightful *static* Prime wont stand *static Deciptcons forever.

*message ends*

Nick: thats why we are here folloying this message from Starscream. I don't want to fight, I think i can help you guys get into the Autobot baces as long as you dont kill me. I can also repare the wall i blew open. But explane this to me where can i find Megatron to revive Starscream?

Carnivac nodded his understanding, then started moving towards Metrotitan's shuttle bay. His pretender shell went ahead to make sure they avoided being spotted by a metrodrone.

Leozak: "There are a few things you need to understand, human. First, we are not Decepticons. We are Destrons. Second, Megatron is dead. Completely and irrepairabily. Third, we have liberated this country from the rule of this Decepticon-backed dictator-" -points at Fakkadi- "- and your attempt to free him proves who you stand with. You will be held for trial and likely repatriated to the Decepticons afterwards." -moves aside as a set of scupper-drones roll into the room with a patch plate and repair the hole in the wall and the damage to the cage, then moving again as the leave, finally tossing Fakkadi back into the cage and relocking it- "Do you have any questions?"

Landing Bay Four, Scorponok

A scorpion drone walked up towards the cassettes.

"Over there."

It gestured with one claw, pointing towards the large black vessel that took up most of the right side of the bay.

"Hurry," it told the other late arrivals. "Only a few seconds before liftoff."

The ship's engines started their powerup sequence, underlining the drone's statement.

(OOC: Rav is gone for a few days, but in keeping with his wishes we'll assume that Hatemonger and the rest of his guys have boarded the ship.

Same goes for anyone else who's not onboard when the ship lifts off [within 24 hours, real-time], I guess.)

Leozak: -mutters something about flash cards under his breath- "We are renegades. We have left the Decepticon forces. You will be returned to the Decepticons after the trial."

Hellbat: "No death sentence?"

Leozak: "No."

Hellbat: -makes a mental note to call the Ronco Grill Company and tell them to cancel the commercial-

Leozak: "Now, please, enter the room. You won't have long to wait."

" It's a slag more complexed then that" Carnivac said a bit angrily, he hated thinking about his past since it only made him remember. Trying to calm down , Carnivac started to explain " I wasn't lieing when I said I was a different Cybertronian before my accident. That was who my old partner was friends with. Personally, I doubt he even recognizes me anymore."
