With the majority of the Decepticon forces deployed on assignments, the Nemesis is a ghost town. Only Gigatron, Scorponok, Soundwave, Nightracer and a few others remain onboard, whilst Hatemonger and Astrotrain have led forays to advance Gigatron's master plan. Knowing that the Warworld is nearly complete, the Decepticon leadership believe that they are standing on the cusp of victory.

Aboardship, Sunstreaker has managed to sneak onboard, and is attempting to trade secrets to Gigatron in exchange for a shuttle that can take him to Cybertron. An Autobot team that includes his brother Sideswipe has been dispatched to bring the traitor in...or bring him down.

The vocal pattern scan which Soundwave was running was returning anomalous results. The Autobot claimed he had turned traitor, but the inflections of pitch and tone told Soundwave otherwise - there was an underlying motive - something the traitor was carefully trying to hide...

"I have an exact lay out of the command structure. Who and what to hit to make the entire force fall apart. And no, it isn't as easy as Kill Prime. He has very little to do with the actual command during battle." Sunstreaker started with something small and that was pretty much well-known, but it atleast showed he wasn't kidding.

"Indeed," Gigatron said noncomittally. The Autobot hadn't said anything he didn't already know...killing Prime had always been more of a personal battle of wills than an attempt to decapitate the Autobot command structure.

Still, a start was a start. If Sunstreaker was lying, he was at least fairly good at it.

"If Optimus isn't that deeply involved in tactical details, then who is? Who would be the prime targets for my assassins?"

Hearing the knocks at the door, Gigatron cast a glance over his shoulder.

"Nightracer," he said to the femme, an edge in his voice, "do see what our visitors want."

He didn't add it had better be good, for their sake, but everyone in the room surely knew it was implied.

Pipes leaned over the seat in front of him, to look at the navigation panels. "So whats our status? Can I dive out and hit things yet?"

Powerglide, who would usually agree, looked at the screens. "Um....is that the Nemesis we're coming up on? I thought we were going to Russia...."

Glyph was still a fish out of water, and had no idea what any of these terms meant. "The Nemesis? That sounds bad.......is that bad?"

After giving Gigatron a brief nod, she slipped Sunstreaker's gun into her subspace compartment. Nightracer kept her rifle in hand ( but pointed it at the floor) and walked over to the interrogation room door. When she got to it, Nightracer carefully openned the door (while making sure she wasn't dirrectly in the path of gunfire (should any guns be shot).

" Do you have a reason for this interruption?" Nightracer calmly asked the Constructicons.

Sunstreaker took note that his gun was now in sub-space and watched the door. He waited to see what the Constructicons wanted with Gigatron before he continued.

This also gave him a chance to formulate an answer. Truth be told, there were some Autobots he still wanted to keep out of harms way.

"No in-flight movie Sky?" Hound chuckled in response as he continued scanning the area.
However, the smile faded as he looked up. "Screen's showing a corruption on Sunstreaker's energy sig - 40 miles southwest by 2 south- approximately 2,103 feet below the surface of the water- give or take a couple dozen.

Many responses to Hook's statement went through her mind, but eventually Nightracer settled on what she hoped was the politest (but also to the point). It never was a good idea to upset those who are in charge of the medbay.

"The computers have lists on who is activilly on a mission or not," Nightracer said to Hook.

(OOC: Sociopathic Autobot is right. Scrapper is supposed Constructicon leader; he's got the highest rank out of the six. I've seen Scrapper, Hook, Bonecrusher and even Scavenger in charge of the team at different times, though, depending on what they were doing and who happened to be writing them. In general, Hook usually seems to be in charge when they're repairing someone, and Scrapper is usually in charge when they're fighting or building a new machine. :))

Gigatron glared over his shoulder at the interruption, but said nothing to the Constructicons or any of his other minions.

"I do have a question, actually." Pipes said to Sky Lynx. "What the Primus is going on? We were told Yellowstreaker was in a remote area of Russia and that we were going to pound his face. Nobody said anything about the bleeding decepticon Headquarters."

Pipes paused a moment, something clicked mentally.

"We're going to the decepticon headquarters? That's fantastic!!!"

Soundwave felt that this was his chance to talk to Gigatron.
He approached Gigatron and said:

"Gigatron. I have been conducting frequency and voice analysis on the speech pattersn from this..." he gestured towards Sunstreaker with his right arm "...Autobot. The results show that much of what he says may be untrue or contain distortions of truth."

He paused waiting for Gigatron's response.

With the search complete, Shockwave began to study the information in front of him regarding Joseph Stalin.

As he did so, he began to see similarites between the two. Both of them were, so to speak, physically weak. They both depended upon others to do the dirty work, yet by some strange twist of fate, this allowed their stature to grow. By being seen as in control, but without hands on dirtyness, the image they cultivated was of style, substance, and, in the case of Stalin thugh not yet Gigatron, love for him.

"Maybe the show trials worked after all" mused Shockwave to himself.

"Well, his signal's coming from down there. Of course, it might be a trick, but I think it's unlikely." Hound paused, darkly remembering his own signal corruption from overlaid programming codes.

"Lynx, there's a large underwater reef outcropping 2 miles from here, and a series of barrier sand-islands that're uninhabited, where you could land."

Sunstreaker just stared at Soundwave. He said it blatantly and infront of him.

"You know, for being the 'peak' of cold-hard logic and cunning, you can't interrogate for slag." Sunstreaker snapped at the darker blue decepticon, rising from his seat.

"Your brain scans are inaccurate. Even Gigatron knows what I said is more than likely true." He was resisting the urge to dismantle Soundwave on the spot. It was bad for negotiations... and interrogations for the one being interrogated.

Gigatron cast an enigmatic look at Soundwave. He still didn't fully trust the results of the former traitor's brain scans, a thought that he kept tucked away in the back of his mind just in case the cassette-master was actually scanning him.

"That comes as no surprise," he told Soundwave in a clinical tone, as if the two of them were alone in the room, discussing the results of an interrogation that was completed weeks ago. His voice did not betray the fact that he gave Soundwave's word only marginally more weight than that of the interrogatee.

"This Autobot...or former Autobot, I suppose," he said with a placating nod towards Sunstreaker, "may have forsaken his allegiance...but he still has friendly feelings for some of the Autobots, I'd wager."

The Decepticon commander's gaze shifted to take in the defector. "But understanding your reluctance doesn't mean I accept it. If you want one of my shuttles, you are going to put your feelings aside. I asked you a question, and despite the bevy of distractions, I expect an answer. Who-"

His questioning was interrupted the Constructicon's comm call. "One moment," he told Sunstreaker before shifting to a silent, internal comm channel (which he fully expected Soundwave would listen in on, but there were some things which simply couldn't be avoided).

"What has he found, Hook?"

Gigatron sighed. "Find Scorponok and tell him what you found," he instructed Hook. "He can deal with any intruders. Don't interrupt me again unless it's urgent."

Cutting the comlink, he turned back to Sunstreaker.

"No more delays," he told the traitorous Autobot. "Who, aside from Prime, is an important figure in Autobot decision-making?"

(OOC: The idea of the reef was that it was outside of Decepticon scanning distance, atleast that was my interpretation.)

Sunstreaker nodded and sat back down. He stopped and then pointed to Soundwave

"You don't need him here, and I get the feeling it doesn't matter what I say, ol' mono-tone there will say I'm lying."

He paused and then grinned. "First on your list is Prowl." He's the one that put Sunstreaker in this position in the first place, so it served him a slight bit of revenge, but he did say the name with a small amount of remorse. Truth was it was actually some what hard for Sunstreaker to do this, but if it ended the war and brought the transformers under one banner, in the end it needed to be done.

Soundwave registered Gigatron's response. Naturally, Gigatron had to be seen to be asserting his authority in front of the traitor. Soundwave had performed his function here - he had provided an accurate analysis of the intruder - the probabilty of his allegience to Gigatron was registering very low on Soundwave's readings.

Soundwave was more than ready for whatever Sunstreaker felt he had up his sleeve. A command would unleash all of his cassetticons unpon the instruder. Soundwave placed his trust in logic and probabilities - if Gigatron choose to ignore these outcomes, it was through no failings of Soundwave...

Gigatron ignored Sunstreaker's jab at Soundwave, neither refuting it nor supporting it. He merely motioned subtly for the communications officer to stay where he was and continue monitoring. If nothing else, Soundwave's presence seemed to annoy the traitor, and enough annoyance could conceivably make him let slip a fact he wanted to keep secret.

"Prowl, you say? Little surprise there. He has been part and parcel of Prime's inner circle since the dawn of time, give or take a few brief periods of death. Who else?"

The hangar bay was dimly lit except for one corner, where two Decepticons were working on an aircraft. The air was filled with the smoke of their labours and their foul curse words of faliure.

Roughstuff stood up and wiped grease off his brow. He and his partner Flattop were Micromasters and the aircraft they were working on was about the same size as a Humans F-15 fighter jet. The space which they had cleared around it was huge though. Flattop pulled himself from underneath it and stood up, called to Roughstuff.
"Mass Shifter is installed in the Cog. Lets test it."
The pair retreated back to a safe distance. Flattop pulled out a bulky remote device and pressed the large red button.
The Aircraft transformed into an Aircraft carrier, taking th space they had cleared and more: it's control tower had dented the roof. Flattop and Roughstuff cheered for a brief second before noticing the damage and hurriedly pressing the large red button and reverting it back a more manageable form and size.
Flattop turned to Roughstuff.
"Fantastic: all we need to do is install this remote into my comm links, do the same for yours-"
here he indicated a complex and aggresive looking Trailer
"- and the Decepticon Micromaster Transports are in business!"

Roughstuff looked to his trailer. "I'm gonna be transporting nothing in that, can we change the name?"

Flattop sighed.

ooc: Yes, the reef is beyond scanning range. Staff is talking over acceptable scanning ranges for the cities, but it will be beyond for this field.

Aboard Sky Lynx
Hound tilted his head sideways slightly as he thought and Sky Lynx headed for the reef. The questions were good ones, and understandable.

The scout didn't have any answers though, or at least, not ones that he'd voice to a very worried Sideswipe.
"It might not be him Sideswipe. It's only his energy signature that I'm tracking on, and it's distorted to an extent. That could be from the city fields or any number of causes. I don't know."
He shot the warrior an easy smile.
"What I do know is that if it is him, we - or rather you- have to at least try to bring him back. He's maybe not cut from the same mould as the rest of us, but he's still one of the family."

Turning his attention back to the ocean and the Nemesis and getting a darker expression, Hound conjured up a hologram of the Nemesis, detailed from image recordings that Soundwave had instilled in his memory.

"The security codes will have changed by now. But if you remain on the reef, and follow it underwater, you will likely not be detected. Underneath - is metal of some variety." The scout frowned at the loss of data and missing information in his data banks, then continued.
"I don't know what from, but it is there, and enough to disguise your readings from scanners. You will be able to follow it underwater to get near to the base's undersea location. The best thing to do after that is wait until they raise the platform for their aerial recon members and slip aboard that way. Getting out may be harder, but there are several energy intake valves on each floor- here, here and here. *pointing*
Those are large enough for you to force open and slip out from The hatches are meant for fuel storage in space- so firing weapons inside may be very dangerous. There could still be vapors or remnants of fuel in there."

"Hmmm...a reef. I've been in a few situations like this." Glyph mused. He took out his twin energon hilts. Usually meant as adaptable weapons, they could also have other functions. He set them to a configuration as wide, relatively short blades, and attached them to his feet as flippers.

Pipes and Powerglide walked over to the exit hatch, ready to get going, while Glyph waddled behind them. "Yeah," Powerglide muttered, arming his machine guns and cluster bombs, "we'll bring him back all right." Sunstreaker had nearly killed him the last time they met, and he hadn't forgotten.

"RedAlert"was the next name out of Sunstreaker's mouth. He took great pleasure in listing him. "He knows the security system better than everyone else. Killing him cripples almost any internal counter-attack they'll be able to muster." He said, glancing at Soundwave from the corner of his optic, before focusing on Gigatron again.

After he finished looking through his research, Shockwave began writing his report. It was a task that took its time, mainly due to Shockwave's logical outlook. Once it was prepared, he opened a comm channel to Gigatron.

"Shockwave to Gigatron. I have finished the task you set for me, and am ready to report my findings at your convenience. Shockwave out."


After he finished this, he spoke to the computer:

"Computer, locate and identify Decepticon micromasters within the Nemesis. List them in alphabetical order, and alert me when finished."

Gigatron nodded to Sunstreaker, not particularly surprised. The Autobots' paranoid security officer was well-known in Decepticons circles, after all.

"Indeed? And do I detect a note of pleasure in your voice? Has the dear security director done something to earn your ire?"

Before he could add on another haughty remark, Shockwave's communication came over the airwaves. "Ah. Excellent," he said in a tone that wouldn't divulge anything to the seemingly pliant Autobot prisoner. "Meet me in the observation room adjacent to interrogation room one and we can discuss your findings. Gigatron out."

Turning to the Autobot, he said, "I'm afraid I have to step out for a moment. Soundwave and Nightracer will keep you company until I get back."

Turning towards the communications officer, he said, "Continue the questioning."

Striding towards the large mirror that made up most of one wall of the room, he walked through the small door, entered the observation room, and watched the group through the one-way mirror.

Scorponok stood over the command console, glaring at the team of tech drones who were busily installing a larger command chair that would fit his massive frame. As he heard the turbolift doors opening, he turned his glower on the diminutive new arrivals.

"What do you want?" he demanded of Roughstuff and Flattop in his usual brusque manner.

The ship's computer gave an affirmative beep, and a list of Micromasters blinked into existence on the cyclopian Decepticon's monitor.

"As expected," Gigatron told Shockwave, still facing the mirror. "He tells us things that we already know, and gives up information on Autobots he doesn't like." The sixchanging leader shrugged. "We'll gain some insight into inter-Autobot dynamics from him, if nothing else."

Turning to face his most logical officer, the winged Decepticon affected an ever-so-slight frown of concentration.

Flattop looked up at the overbearing Headmaster Chief and tilted his head to the left.
"We're looking for work: got any?"

"Excuse my partner Lord, he's merely eager."

Glyph, Pipes, and Powerglide disembarked from Sky Lynx.

"Thanks for the ride, Big Bird." Pipes said as he walked out.

Glyph took his bearings from the navigation screens he had seen durnig the ride, and waded into the water. Pipes ran after him and dove in with a cannonball, making a big splash.

Powerglide stood on the edge of the shore for a moment looking around, his hands on his hips. "Who was the genius that wanted Pipes for a covert mission, and me for an underwater one, and both at the same time?" He shook his head as he walked into the water, not sure if it amused or annoyed him.

Scorponok's glower intensified somewhat; he had little choice, really, after Roughstuff addressed him as 'Lord'. He suspected Gigatron had spy devices scattered all over the ship, and he didn't want the sixchanging tyrant to think he had designs on his command. Not yet, anyway.

"If there was work," the large Decepticon rumbled, "I wouldn't be here watching drones install a chair. If you're bored, you can monitor one of the bridge consoles."

Assuming you don't need booster seats, he thought after another look at the Micromasters.

In one corner of the Bridge two feet could be seen protruding from under a console , a semi circle of parts, wiring and boards arrayed round it.

The doors banged open and Knock Out strode in 2 Energon beakers in one hand and a tool box in the other

"Simply, that you should follow the example of a former Statesman. A Soviet Russian named Iosef Stalin. Stalin translates to "man of steel", which captured his personality almost perfectly.

"Whilst physically not stong, he cultivated a personality of non-physical power. Extremely intelligent, on one hand he was a ruthless politician driven by a paranoia developed after the death of the revolutionary leader and first leader of the U.S.S.R., Vladimir Lenin. Show trials were a method used to uncover and discipline suspected dissidents to enforce his control. Secret police and a network of informants were used to spy on the citizens of the U.S.S.R. However, his paranoia was a contributing factor to his eventual decline in stature both prior to, and after his death due to ill health.

"On the other, he was seen as a paternal figure, consumed with love for his nation and his people. Cermeonies involving school children showing their love for their 'grandfather' were used by Stalin to further secure his position, and make himself approachable to his people.


"A great war leader, he used his cunning to gain an advantage in Western Europe for ideological gains. He devloped the U.S.S.R. into the second superpower of Earth during the middle and latter years of the previous century.

"I have concluded that you, as leader of the Decepticons, in light of defections and capture of valuable soldiers, need to improve your image as the undisputed leader of the Decepticon Army, and Supreme Emperor.

"Public displays of, perhaps, clemency will demonstrate to your troops that you love them. By showing mercy, you would be seen as a fair and just leader. A consequence of this would be that their trust in you would grow, as would their devotion, if not love.

"Conversely, condemning those deemed suprlus to your own requierments to death would demonstrate that you are a strong willed, determined leader who will broke no dissent or treachary. Again, the devotion of the troops, their trust in you would grow.

"I have also concluded that you must develop your own internal secret police, and with it, a network of spies. Utilising them would create a ream of private intelligence of your troops and thier own feelings that would not be accessible under nominal means. By using the intelligence effectively, you would be able to alter your own image accordingly. If they hunger for a show of discipline then you would take the action that would satisfy them- by ordering a trial of traitors for example.

"You must not underestimate the value of public image. Your troops follow you, and if you are not up to the task, they will want someone they want themselves to be. Strong, determined, disciplined, and above all, victors."

Gigatron listened mutely to Shockwave's report, although the idea of modelling himself after a human tyrant made the sixchanger feel...dirty somehow.

After the one-eyed officer had finished his dictation, Gigatron nodded his approval.

"Your suggestions are most ingenious," he said an a tone that was, for once, free of contempt. "If we had information on the feelings of our underclass, we could defuse any potential uprisings before they happened, instead of falling back on the threat of deadly force like my predecessors did in those situations. And by improving my image in the optics of the troops, we will make a serious uprising that much more unlikely to begin with.

"But our forces on this planet are still operating on afairly small scale. I have no doubt I can get many of the troops to inform on their fellow Decepticons, but I think they would discover fairly quickly which of their comrades have become informants, and most likely kill them."

The leader frowned for a moment, then smiled slightly.

"Perhaps," he said slowly, "we could gather the intelligence without involving the troops at all. Technical and cleaning drones are everywhere on the ship, after all. Most of the troops see them as nothing more than part of the scenery; no one will stop talking because a mere drone rolled around the corner. If we could equip them to gather the information we need, we could go about improving my 'image', as you call it, without any outside help."

This was Soundwave's chance.

"Sunstreaker." he said in his usual clipped voice - "Gigatron has left me in charge of gathering information. As I have already registered, you speech pattern analysis indicates elements of untruthfullness in your responses. I will test this truthfullness."

He paused for a second before continuing.

"Advise me on the location and magnitude of weapons installations surrounding and within the Autobot base..." he began

The Micromasters Roughstuff and Flattop shrugged, walked past Scorponok towards the moniotr consoles.
"hardly a good use of our talent..." muttered Flattop.

"Indeed" nodded Shockwave before he carried on. "All that needs to be done is to design and install a spying program to be introduced when the drones enter maintenance. Once enhanced and released, the information would begin to emerge. Once it reaches a sufficient amount, it can then be analysed and acted upon accordingly.

"As you have recently given me the Propaganda portfolio, I conclude that it would be me that would analyse the data and inform you of its content?"

Shockwave looked directly at his leader.

The CR chamber finished its resuscitation program. The occupant awoke to find himself inside a transparant chamber just emptying itself of liquid.

As it empied, the chamber opened, and the occupant stepped out. Small, orange and purple, he looked around his settings.

"Typical. Can't anyone do anything right?" he asked to himself. He looked around and saw a winking light. He moved towards it, and a voice said:

"External identification complete. Vocal identification requiered to cancel automatic warning. Enter identification after the beep"

With a sigh and a shake of the head he spoke his name: "Skystalker"

"Identification complete. Present yourself to Lord Gigatron. Current location: Observation Room 1"

Skystalker left the CR chambers behind as he walked towards the obs. room.

Gigatron nodded slowly.

"You conclude correctly," he told his logical lieutenant. "Can I assume you are capable of coordinating the design and installation of the spy software we'll require?"

The Decepticon leader turned to look at his subordinate once more.

"After all, it would be illogical to involve more Decepticons than necessary in these preparations. A fact I'm sure you appreciate."

Sunstreaker grinned. It was just Soundwave now. He could take Soundwave.

"Before I left, you mean? My information on that department isn't that much better than yours, I'm sure." He leaned back in his chair, putting his arms behind his head, starting to relax. "Besides, your ships aren't worth that kind of information."

Lord Zarak
2006-06-14, 01:55 PM
"That is a fact I do of course find logical. There is no place for 'appreciation' when concerned with logic" replied Shockwave.
"

"It is logical for me to proceed with the design and manufacture of the new program. However, if I was to install as well, then suspicions might be aroused if I were arbitrarily placed upon the manintenance team. As the maintenance team have no need to know the content of any modification via programming, all that would be necessary would be to present the spying program as a non-desrcipt piece of software to improve the efficiency of the drones."

Shockwave looked again at his leader and waited for Gigatron's decision.

dai-atlas2000
2006-06-14, 06:19 PM
Soundwave considered. Sunstreaker was being deliberately selective with the information he handed out. It was to be expected. Soundwave regarded Sunstreaker as nothing more than an Autobot traitor and potential spy/security risk.

The traitor was clever off course, he wasn't going to betray colleagues and "friends" lightly. Soundwave must play him at his own game...

"What information will be given to us?" He requested. "If you need a ship so badly, then it must be of grave importance to have defected from your morals. We will require information of great value in order to initiate any sort of transfer..."

Warcry

Gigatron took a moment to watch Soundwave and Sunstreaker through the one-way mirror before replying.

"As always," he finally told Shockwave, "your reasoning is sound. Once the new software is complete, you can coordinate with the technical department on installation. Even if they don't know the content of the modifications, though, it would be wise to limit the number of techs who are aware of it...we wouldn't want someone to decompile the code and see what we're up to, after all. I suggest you coordinate directly with Hammer and use his team exclusively for installation when the time comes."

Lord Zarak
2006-06-16, 02:14 PM
"Of course. I shall proceed right away." He nodded and exited the room. As he did so, he nearly kicked over Skystalker.

"Hey, watch it! You not got two....Ah" he froze as he saw who it was.
"Course y'dont, do you Shockwave?" he asked, rather nervously.

"It would not be prudent to answer a rhetorical question, Skystalker. Gigatron will be...pleased to see another soldier has re-awakened. Wait here, and I will see if he will see you.

Shockwave re-entered the obs. room once more.

"Forgive the intrusion, Gigatron, but one of our micromasters has been re-awakened from the CR Chamber. Do you wish to see him now?"

Warcry

Gigatron turned back to Shockwave, frowning.

"Oh, very well. Send him in."

The sixchanger's frown deepened slightly as he remembered where he was. Whoever had awakened, it obviously wasn't someone on his list of trusted underlings, so it wouldn't be wise to allow him to watch the interrogation.

"On second thought, don't. I'll see him in my throne room."

With that, the sixchanger headed for the door.

"As you wish" replied as Gigatron walked out of the room past both Skystalker and Shockwave.

Shockwave too left the room, but in Gigatron's wake. He looked down at the micromaster and spoke:

"Gigatron will see you in his throne room. I suggest you take a moment to yourself to allow Gigatron time to prepare to see you. Will there be anything else?"

"Nah" replied Skystalker, who by now was beginning to regain his composure. "I'll just hang around here for a moment, like you said..."

Shockwave shut the observation room door.

"...Or maybe not. I'm sure I can just amble along to the throne room, keeping myself to myself." A wicked smile worked its way across his face.

"See you later Shockwave, can't keep the boss man waiting now, can we?"

He turned and left, leaving Shockwave stood by himself. However, he kept watching the micromaster, even as Skystalker looked back and waved.

As Skystalker turned a corner, Shockwave left where he was standing in the direction of his office.

Gigatron had left Shockwave and Skystalker (he thought that was who he had seen, anyway) to discuss whatever they had to discuss, and had headed to his throne room to prepare for the Micromaster's visit. Upon arrival, he seated himself on his throne and schooled his features into a suitably imperious expression.

While he waited for Skystalker, he took a moment to review the Decepticon's service record. With careful precision, he noted that the Micromaster had seemingly been dead for all of his previous reign.

(OOC: I'm assuming, because Rav deaded him in the Unicron war and I can't remember him doing anything between that and getting revived just now. Lemme know if that doesn't jive with something. :))

"Anyone can point a gun," Cutthroat said coldly. "A shiny toy doesn't cancel out your weakness. It just underlines it."

Rippersnapper converted to beast mode. "I'll give you weakness!" he bellowed, launching himself at his fellow Terrorcon.

Skystalker nodded at Scorponok's reply, and moved in the direction that his claw pointed at. He tapped into it, and began absorbing the information on the database.


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

Shockwave moved away from his screen. Displayed on it was the finalised product- the spy-ware which would unwittingly pry upon the movements and actions of all Decepticon warriors stationed upon the Nemesis.

It's design was simple, and therefore easily installed, but easily missed. All it did was simultaneously transmit the information from each drone on a frequency so low that only those who knew what to look for knew it was there, at the same time as each individual drone transmitted its location to the central computer of the Nemesis. The information would be stored on Shockwave's computer.

All that needed to be done now, was for it to be installed.

Shockwave opened a comm channel to Hammer, as directed by Gigatron.

"Hammer, this is Shockwave. Please meet me in Maintenance. Bring your team. That is all. Shockwave out"

Overlord went to find his CR Chamber. Once he did so, he entered, and began the healing process.

Gigatron watched Hatemonger with a menacing glare on his face for several seconds before saying anything. He didn't expect the act to scare his ground forces commander, but one needed to keep up appearences.

Soundwave wasn't impressed by Sunstreaker's cockiness. Presumably the traitorous Autobot considered him a soft touch.

Soundwave slammed both fists down on the table in front of him.

"You keep requesting that we provide you with a ship for your own use, but have offered nothing in return. What value is there in continuing this one sided negotiation?"

Soundwave paused.

"In fact, my scans are proving conclusively that this is nothing more than a ruse to stall for time or to provide a disruption to our forces. You are a dangerous element here, one which logically should be confined or destroyed..."

Soundwave reached to unholster his fusion gun...

Hatemonger nodded and spoke unnerved by Gigatron's tone and presence.

"The mission was a success, we were able to recover Spectro, caused considerable turmoil and destruction to the two Autobot bases and most important we." He looked over at Bludgeon. "Terminated Squeezeplay, in which in his honor he did die like a Decepticon and I myself dealed considerable damage to Blitzwing. Overall I would say our mission was more than a sucess and should have gave Astrotrain the time he needed to complete his actions." Hatemonger explained.

He then waited for Gigatron to respond or Bludgeon to add to his explaination.

Flywheel and Ruckus both exited the Annilator and headed off for the CR chambers.

Spectro looked over at Spyglass and Viewfinder.

"I do have to say the Autobots sure are stupid." Spectro said to his brothern.

"Why is that?" Spyglass asked.

"Simple, no torture no nothing, in fact they fixed me up." He laughed.

"No matter we are going to bring you to the med-bay just to make sure the Autobots didn't do anything to your systems." Viewfinder said as the trio walked to the med-bays.

Hatemonger smiled slyly knowing Gigatron was going to ask that question.

"None, usual battle bumps and bruises and some will need a little while in the med bays and the CR Chambers but no damage was sustained to our ships and all men returned in operational order. Furthermore I would like to add several Decepticons we earmarked for this mission did not show. So I am more than impressed by the preformance of all the Decepticons in this battle." He added.

He was interrupted as Scorponok's voice cut over the intercom. "Metrotitan has been destroyed."

"Nnnn." Gigatron was silent for a moment, then asked, "And you know this how?"

"My city transector is parked nearby. The impressions I'm getting from my drones are fairly clear."

"I see. Tell them to salvage what they can, and to send a full report as soon as possible. Gigatron out."

"Hatemonger," he said, "go to the bridge and contact Astrotrain. Tell him that we need the Warworld to go active ahead of schedule."

"Settle down, I am not going to offer something if I am not getting something as nice as my paint job in return."

Sunstreaker tightened his grip on the chair watching the gun.

"Listen, how about you wait here and I look." In one fluid motion he tugged the chair close and then whipped it up off the ground catching Nightracer across the face and dropping her to the ground.

Soundwave went to react by drawing the gun but Sunstreaker quickly shoved the table into the Decepticon communication officer and jarring the gun out of his hand. Sunstreaker gave a strong right hook to the side of his head and shoulder-barged through the door. He stopped quickly and went back, hacking into Nightracer's subspace bubble and taking his gun back and then running down the corridor, he hoped the old maps the Autobots had were accurate.

As it was Nightracer wasn't sure which surprised her more, the fact that the Autobot had hit her with a chair or the fact that the Autobot hacked into her subspace compartment (OOC: Is that even possible?).

Either way; the Autobot had did both those facts to her in front of another Decepticon, which was unexceptable. Thus the only conculsion was that Nightracer didn't stay down long.

Taking note of what Sunstreaker did to hack into her subspace compartment and doing her best to fix it, Nightracer got back to her feet. Then Nightracer took aim and fired her rifle at Sunstreaker's back.

Gigatron shook his head.

"No, Skystalker. That will be all. You heard the general, so you know our destination. Go ready your shuttle. We'll be departing presently."

Pressing the comm switch, he answered Hatemonger. "Excellent work," he said smugly. The idea of having to negotiate with Hatemonger only hours after the general had led a successful assault on their headquarters must have galled Prime.

The Decepticon leader stroked his chin thoughtfully. It wasn't much of a surprise that the Autobots had found out about the Warworld; too many Decepticons knew about it, and his mechs weren't very good at keeping secrets. At this point, though, there was little the Autobots could do to effect the project one way or another.

"It's a shame Prime is such a fool," he told Hatemonger. "If we had had Autobot assistance we could have finished the battlestation more quickly, but the laughable Autobot moral code wouldn't let them work on a superweapon no matter who the target was."

Rising from his throne, he started to move towards the exit.

"Alert Scorponok and have him ready his city transector for liftoff," he continued to dictate over the comm. "Likewise, tell Trypticon to prepare for departure. Ask Shockwave to start downloading and analyzing data from the probe your team planted on Cybertron as soon as his current project leaves him free time. For your part, General, start preparing the troops for departure. As soon as the Warworld makes orbit, I want every Decepticon and drone in this base to decamp and move into the battlestation. Obviously, you'll have to activate our security protocols to keep out unwelcome vistors until we can return. Once this business with Prime is done, we're going home."

"Yes sir it shall be done." He said activating the com-link. He knew Scorponok and Shockwave were on the Nemesis so he radioed them first.

"Scroponok, Gigatron has requested you get your City ready for flight. We will be going to War World as soon as Gigatron is ready." He then clicked the com over to Shockwave along with Cryotek.

"Shockwave, I am sending you Cryotek so as he already knows the secrity systems for the probe on Cybertron he will help you to anylaze the data and ready a plan as soon as you have finished your current project." He said.

He then activated his com-link and radioed Trypticon knowing how to describe things to get the massive Citycon ready for battle.

"Trypticon, prepare yourself for space flight with any Decepticons you have in your area. We are going home to slaughter the Quints." He figured the idea of pure slaughter should have made the Citycon more than happy to comply.

Finally he set his com to the Decepticon frequency on the Nemesis.

"All active Decepticons and drones, ready yourselves for battle upon the return of Gigatron we go to destroy those who have invaded our planet. In other words my fellow warriors, soilders and comrades we are going home. All Decepicons meet in the main assembly hall Drones wait in the shuttle area[/b]" He said looking at the terminal in front of him he quickly ran his hands over the terminal activating all of the Nemesis's defensive systems as the weapons Octopunch and the Undersea Drones had activated whirred to lift and the jewel of the Decepticons armada readied herself for her crew to fight to save her homeland.

He set that message to play a few times over the next couple of minutes then stood up knowing he needed to ready the troops to leave. Soon he would have another crack at the Quints and he couldn't wait. He thought to himself as he exited the command area as it locked down behind him only accessable to other Decepticons due to the security activations.

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

"Sweet!" Rampage said hearing the announcemnet he already had his lighting rilfes out and was ready to go.

"Well I guess we are still ready for a fight." Razorclaw smiled seeing the optics of his fellow Predacons light up with the fury of battle which shown even brighter as they would reclaming their home.

"Yes sir." The other four Predacons said in a rare state of unity well at least for them in their seperate forms.

"To the assembly hall then." He said leading his men to the assembly hall.

"Well looks like we will be going home soon after all." Viewfinder said as the drones looked over Spectro reporting the Autobots had not planted anything on the spy.

"Well lets go." Spectro said looking at Spyglass and Viewfinder the three Decepticons went to the assembly hall to await Gigatron return and the chance to go home.

Hatemonger thought to himself as he walked to the assembly area after hearing the transmission from Jalgar.

"Excellent see you there." He said he then wondered how Gigatron was going to approach the Autobots all things considered he knew the Autobots would be most useful in retaking Cybertron. In chess you use your pawns first. Either way Cybertron would be theirs again soon. Suddenly he recieved an alert from the Nemesis radar.

Hmm. He thought to himself radioing Gigatron "It seems we have some Autobots in our water. Shame the Seacons seem to be lost in the shuttle. Maybe Octopunch could take some underwater drones and pay them a visit?" He asked.

Striding out of the room, he headed to the main assembly hall to make his presence known, then leave again.

Much as he hated leaving Marmalade behind, he was reluctant to take his new pet into a war against the Quintessons so that meant taking it back to the mainland. Maybe its keeper would look after it.

The explosion rocked throughout the Nemesis ship. Ravage andOverkill both felt the blast. The vibrations threw Ravage to the hard metal floor. Overkill stood firm and held his ground. Slugfest's lumbering bulk prevented him from falling.

Ravage sprang to his feet and he and Overkill rounded the corner from where the blast had come to find the ceiling merged with the floor. Overkill roared with disapproval and anger at the mess which was blocking them from Sunstreaker.

"We must bash through!" He cried.

Slugfest, ever the slow one of the group trudged up behind them.

"Me SMASHHH!" He bawled.

Slugfest lowered his head and charged at the mass of debris. It was something akin to a tank rolling towards a brick wall...

"He's merely stunned by your generosity, lord Sunstorm; He doesn't meet Gods every day you know."
He gave a cheery wave as he folded Flattop into a Micromaster seat on the edge of the Hall.
"Honestly brother, if you don't pull your act together... Hey, nice Gun!" he added distractedly as he sat next to the paraletic transformer.

There was a rumbling noise that was building in intensity...Soundwave's audio receptors were detecting it quite a few seconds before it became audible enough to noticably register. The sound of water... The hull must be breached he concluded.

Soundwave knew that the cassetticons he was missing had not gone far. His walk had broken into a run as he moved down a metal corridor in search of them.

Ravage picked himself up off the floor. Slugfest lay beside him - damaged. His frustration had provided one solution and created a new problem. The bombs had cleared a hole in the block-in, but now, the rush of water that was surging down the corridor towards that hole...and them was growing noticably more visible.

"Overkill say we run!" Overkill stated bluntly. Primitives were smart enough when they needed to be.

"Slugfest need help to run!" Slugfest cried from where he'd fallen. fragments from the roof had collapsed across his legs.

Ravage turned heal and ran. He was not waiting to be drowned in the oncoming surge.

Overkill walked to Slugfest and smashed viciously at the beams which were crushing his legs. He made light work of it. Slugfest's right leg was bent into an awkward shape. Overkill bashed Slugfest with his tail.

"Get on feet!" he shouted, before turning and following Ravage's lead.

Coming up on the Cassetticons, the first thing Nightracer noticed was that they were running. It didn't take her long to figure to notice the surge of water.

Overlord was overcome by incredulity.

"Me? Insignificant?!" He walked behind where Bugly arrogantly sat, and gripped the top of his head, applying some pressure.

"I know I get my power from these 'flesh things', and no supernatural power would stop me from from crushing your head right now."

He chuckled to himself as he minutley applied more and more pressure to Bugly's head.

"Indeed. We must therefore assume that the Quintesson's have a vastly lasrger force that has been kept at bay by the resistance movement, which has engaged in a guerilla style war effort.

We must plan around this, as a large increase in the resistance effort may actually work against us."

Not far behind, Overkill was similarly spriting to escape.

Slugfeststruggled shakily to his feet. He shook his head a couple of times in an attempt to get himself going. He tried to run, the damaged leg refused to co-operate...he collapsed to the floor and howled loudly.

Realising that there was no point in trying to run, he started to crawl and drag his body down the corridor. The water surged through the hole in the fallen debris behind him and instantly picked him up of the floor and smashed his body into the wall...

Sideswipe dropped down below the extended arm of Bludgeon.

"I'll believe it when Prime tells me." He let a full blast from the flare gun go point blank at the rib area of the pretender shell. With his arm up and leg out, this was the softest spot on the metallikato master.

"Brother? So they just didn't give up," Sunstreaker shrugged. "I'm here to get a shuttle Soundwave said I could take it. Why not just tell them to all go home."

Without answering Soundwave's nod, Nightracer quickly followed after him.

Corridors, Nemesis:


Fangry: -shrugs at Sunstreaker- "Might as well take them with you. I don't think any of them turn into anything big enough to transport them all." -starts heading towards the corridor section that Bludgeon and the Autobots are in- "Come on. It's on the way to the shuttle bay."

Stranglehold: --motioning for Sunstreaker to follow-

Flooding corridor:


Bludgeon: -knocked off balance by the flare exploding across his torso armor, turning his stagger into a leap, flipping through the air and landing, torso armor still covered with flaming flare gel, fists clenching(the sound of myomer bundles creaking audible over the rushing water and crackle of flame, drops into a fighting stance, right fist opening up, waving any Autobots who want to attack him on, flamelight lending a hellish cast to his skull-face-

Pipes absorbed the blow with minor damage, laughed at Bludgeon's taunt and charged again.

Powerglide, more or less useless in confined quarters stuck in robot mode, tried to find a position to fire from.

Glyph moved sideways in an attempt to cut off Bludgeon's avenue of escape.

Bugly barely seemed to notice the pressure Overlord was applying to his skull...probably because he was using his dark powers to telekinetically reinforce his head so the much larger Decepticon couldn't crush it like an egg. The only external sign of his exertion, though, was a slight darkening of his optics.

"If you are quite done," he said at last, "sit down and wait for the general's speech."

Small bolts of unnatural lightning started to arc between the fingers of the Pretender's left hand, growing stronger and brighter with each rebound, a silent warning of what would come if his suggestion went unheeded.

Flooding Corridor:


Bludgeon: -seeming to ignore Glyph for the moment, left arm snaps up, electropulse cannon roaring as it fires at Powerglide, right leg snapping up, blade snapping out of heel as he performs a vicious crescent kick at the charging Pipes, attempting to slash the minibot's torso open-

Overlord saw the lightning and laughed.

"Scared, little insect?"

He released the pressure on Bugly's head, but remained stood behind him.

Bugly didn't even bother to turn around as he addressed Overlord.

"I've looked into the face of the greatest evil ever to walk on our homeworld. If I didn't quail in the face of a demigod, I certainly won't be frightened by you."

The room started to grow a bit dimmer as Bugly subtly drew power from the lighting systems, adding it to the ball of dark energy forming in his palm.

Pipes took the crescent kick full on, the blade digging into his torso as he attempted to wrap his arms around Bludgeon.


Glyph edged around, looking for a chance to pounce.

Bludgeon: -fists crackling with electricity as Pipes struggles forward, steps forward to meet him, unleashing a devastating series of punches at the minibot's torso-

Sunstorm turned towards Bugly, "Face to face with a Demi-god? but we've never met." he stated before chuckling a bit, "I'm joking of course, I'm one hundred percent deity" he said, dead serious.

"So, Flattop," he said turning to his small companion, "how do you like the gun?"

After leaving the CR chambers and collecting the other three members of the team in the mess hall, the Stunticons quickly paid a visit to the armoury. They spent a few moments to collect extra amo, before heading to the assembly hall.

"This time I get your head!" He lunged at the hunched over pretender, his arm transforming into a pile-driver as he attempted to flatten the head of the pretender shell, and the transformer inside it.

Sunstreaker shrugged. "I'd really prefer if I didn't have to fly back to their home. All they will do is tell me I've been a bad bot and throw me in the brig chaning nothing important. How about you give them their own ship and me mine?" He knew the answer, but Stranglehold and Fangry were being slightly too accomodating.
