Continuing...

Kyle:
Summoned by a distress signal, a group of Autobots travelled to Kyle, SD to rescue a refugee from Cybertron and recover data tracks and the pod which the transformer arrived in. Little did they know that it was a Decepticon trap, and the trap was subsequently sprung.

Antarctica: Metrotitan
The Wreckers seek to damage and perhaps destroy the Decepticon citybot.

Quebec:
Camshaft and a team of Autobots have gone to Canada to try and determine the extent of Breastforce's activity and to try to make ammends with the Prime Minister.

Kyle, field
Guzzle was being hoisted by his turret by the fircon, Cindersaur: where he to transform, he'd be in a worse position: he tried a rather poor escape by revving his treads into reverse, knowing full well that if he escaped he'd hit Sledge who was still behind him.

Quebec
Sizzle continued to follow Crosscut and Wreckgar as they organised stuff... Sizzle was starting to realise how select and rare jobs for interceptors were in the Autobot army.

Sledge had leapt out of the way as the gout of flame surged his way his left arm was singed. He grabbed grit and started hauling him away while Guzzle was distracted.

~*~

Wingspan rallied his troops as he anxiously eyed Devcons and Stonecrusher's battle glad that the micromaster had saved him from capture but ready to intervene if necessary.

"Decepticons d-d-d-d-d-d-destroy that pod don't let them take it intact."

He yelled loudly.

"S-someone grab t-that m-mech that c-came w-with the p-pod if w-we can't have the pod w-we'll take him, b-be careful looks like he booby trapped his s-s-ship , could be full of suprises."

Groundshaker buzzed around the area, taking potshots wherever he could, but it was quickly getting out of control.

He noticed Guzzle in trouble, and directed a blast at Sledge in order to catch him off guard.

Cindersaur managed to hold on to Guzzle as the autobot reversed, the Firecons feet draging through the earth, after heaing Wingspan's orders he looked over his shoulder at the burning wreck that was the pod.

Ur, destroy the pod, check, grab Ragnarok, doing.

Cindersaur withdrew his flametrower rifle fron subspace and jammed into Guzzle's cannon.

"Ha, shoot me now Autobot."

The firecon then ran off toward Ragnarok.

He heard Bumblebee banging on the escape door.
Trailbreaker groaned quietly as he stretched for the banging on the hatch.
Must've... swung shut again. They've gotta listen.

The defensive strategist knew that in seconds the heat would ignite the explosive remainder of the fuel. Even with mostly drained tanks, the blast would flatten the cornstalks for miles. Anything caught in the surge would be thrown to the ground, impaled by flying debris or worse.

Trailbreaker radioed desperately. "No- Get away! The oxygen will cause it to explode again!"

But from Bumblebee's pulling, the hatch gave way under his fingers, letting out a new flood of smoke briefly. Instantly, the smoke flooded back in along with clean air- and Trailbreaker pulled himself forward to try to shield the Pretender from the imminent blast.

Roadbuster: -wincing as the bolts burn into his left arm pauldron and bracer armor, not moving to the right but charging forward, spraying armor piercing explosive bullets, ion bolts and exploding shrapnel at Krunix- "I'm Roadbuster. And they tried sending me to the Pit once. The Pit didn't want me. Afraid I'll take over."

Krunix likewise charged forward, neither trying to dodge Roadbuster's weaponsfire, nor showing any reaction to it aside from small flakes of armour being chipped off of his shoulders and chest.

"Then we'll try the Inferno. Or any other imaginary pit of the damned that you might prefer. I'm not picky at all."

Once he had closed range with the Autobot, he swung his right arm around, trying to smash the butt of his appropriated Metrodrone rifle into his mouthy opponant's jaw.

Guzzle fell to the ground and screeched backwards uncontrollably. He pulled around and braked, finding himself facing a battered Sledge: he transforme and pulled Cindersaurs flametrower rifle out of his turret and grinned.

Brawn had little trouble getting out of the way of Metrodash's shot. Had the Decepticon negated his surprise attack by announcing it. Brawn scrambled back up and slowly moved towards the Decepticon. That was close Brawn thought as he pulled a small object off his belt.

"Who has who, Decepti-crumb!?" Brawn yelled as he lobbed a fragmentation grenade behind whatever debris the Decepticon was hiding behind.

Metrodash scrambled around the corner, shrapnel peppering his legs, the concussion sending him flying, somehow managing to hold onto the bazooka as he tumbles to a stop at the base of a wall.

Nebulon: -blown forward, sent flying, skids to a stop at Stepper's feet, bleeps weakly-

Stepper: -looks down at the battered droid, drops to one knee- "You okay?"

Nebulon: -sits up, shaking head, bleeps affirmative, gets dizzily to feet, staggers slightly, jumps, clambering up onto Steper's shoulder, activates magnetic plates on his feet, affixing himself to the hardpoint mount on Stepper's back just behind his right shoulder-

Aero Blade
2006-05-23, 03:09 AM
It was several minutes before Aero Blade finally heaved a sigh, stepping back and putting his tools away as he looked towards Getaway.

"I've done all I'm able to," he said, looking very exhausted. It seemed more like mental stress than it did physical strain, though.

If Krunix even realized that he'd just been shot in the face and gut, the Decepticon security officer didn't show it. Whether he actually didn't feel any pain as the shrapnel cut a thousand tiny scratches into his head, or whether (as many of his comrades theorized) he simply didn't have enough of a personality to know how to react to it, the Decepticon didn't miss a beat.

"Then I strongly suggest you start feeling surprised," he told the Autobot. "While you still have time to feel anything at all."

With the arm that held the Metrodrone rifle, Krunix jabbed his elbow at Roadbuster's face. One he judged that his strike had his foe's full attention, he took aim with his left arm, pointed it at the Autobot's ankle, and fired a concussion blast at the joint. He followed that up by kneeing at the Autobot's midsection (or rather, where it had been moments ago), in the hopes that at least one of his previous strikes would have hit home and startled the enemy into a moment of deadly inaction.

Getaway looked down at Aero Blade, and spared a smile for the technician.

"You did well," he said. "It looks like we can slide in the new laser core without any trouble at all, now."

In actual fact, Getaway had no idea what it looked like; Transformer internal structures weren't something he was very familiar with. But he said it anyway, in an attempt to abate some of his obviously-stressed teammate's strain.

Pulling the core out of subspace, he held it gingerly in one hand. "Do you want to do the honours, or should I?"

Excavator watched helpless as Sledge burned to death wreathed in flames.

He shook himself snapping back to reality and away from the horrible image his imagination had produced.

He aimed his rifle at Guzzle and fired .


"Duck Sledge Duck."

Sledge activated his flight boosters and shot into the air avoiding the full force of Guzzle's shot. His right foot was severely charred however.

Guzzle took the blast from Excavator in the chest, and fel clumsily to the ground. He cursed himself, knowing that hehad gotten over eager and shouldn't have let himself get surprised like that!
Guzzle tried to transform, but his Cog functions were overheated from the constant shifting he had gone through: he fired a wide spray of flame at Excavators vague postion whilst he staggered up.

Krunix pushed off of Roadbuster's torso, spinning out of the Autobot's line of fire. He felt several blasts singe his cheek, irritating the wounds caused by the shrapnel blast.

"What? All out of snappy comebacks?"

Using the momentum of his spin to his advantage, he dropped low, then attempted to sweep his opponent's legs out from under him with a knee-level arcing kick.

Aero Blade nodded to Getaway as he spoke, as to confirm what he was saying. When meantion of changing the laser core came up, though, Aero seemed to become a bit distant. Partly, it was that doing such would make Aero feel like he'd completely crossed the line into something he'd rather not do, but mostly it was because he'd just been hit by another dizzy spell.

Aero backed up into the nearest wall and leaned on it to give himself a bit of stability, managing to simply look exhausted and uneased. "It would probably be better if you did it, until I've had a moment to recover.."

Seeing Roadbuster jump, Krunix pulled his leg back towards his body and threw himself forward. His hands hit the decking a short distance away, to the left of and slightly behind the Autobot. The change of position proved to be useful, as a rain of fire started to blast into the ground he had occupied only moments ago.

"I understand more than you ever will," he said coldly to the Wrecker. "For one thing, I understand how to fight at close range."

As the rest of the Decepticon joined his hands at his new location, he rolled forwards, coming to a standing position half a body-length away from his foe. Hoping to catch the Autobot off-guard, he mule-kicked at the small of Roadbuster's back.

"You, however, obviously do not."

Whirl finished cutting out the section of decking, and slammed one of his skids down on it. The triangular sheet of metal clattered down to the floor of the next deck.

"Looks like it just did."

Without bothering to look down first, the blue Wrecker dove skis-first into the hole.

Getaway took note of how Aero Blade retreated to the wall like it was his only friend in the world.

When we get back, he told himself, that boy's seeing a medic. Something's not right with him.

"Sure thing," was all the Powermaster said aloud, though. Dropping to his knees beside Metroshot, he carefully set about sliding the laser core into place (relying on instructions from Rev to avoid damaging anything important along the way).

Over the comlink, he replied to Overdrive. "I read you." Stopping his work, he looked over his shoulder at Aero and Jazz. Brace yourselves, you two. This might shake a little."

One of Warpath's shots caught Cindersaur in the back, although it hurt like slag he gritted his teeth, grumbled and continued on his way towards Wingspan.

Once the Firecon reached the Clone he dumped Ragnorok on to the ground in front of him with a thud not caring about his injuries despite his complaining.

Cindersaur looked at Wingspan "Can we go home now".

Aero Blade
2006-05-25, 06:28 PM
Aero Blade nodded to Getaway, keeping against the wall but being sure to situate himself better for whatever was about to happen. He was greatful for the slight reprieve, as it'd give him a chance to get over his dizzy spell.

While they were there, Aero absently look around for a moment. It'd been awhile since he'd seen Stratus, but he knew the minicon was likely hanging around somewhere nearby, just out of sight of his partner. He always did this when he was waiting for someone to take Aero to a medic, so he could keep himself out of the matter. Aero sighed, shaking his head to himself a bit. He knew Stratus would pop up the moment he needed him, but he really wished he'd quit dissapearing on him.

Krunix came back down on both feet a fraction of a second before Roadbuster opened fire, and triggered his transformation sequence. The Autobot's onslaught raked across his formost sections as he transformed, then cut through the air above him. However, due to the rapid movements involved in the transformation, the end result was a lot superficial damage to a lot of his body, rather than critical damage to one part of it.

"Maybe. But you and your men will die right along with us."

Even before his support struts hit the ground, the muzzle of the Decepticon's cannon erupted, sending a deadly burst of charged particles towards the Autobot's center of mass.

Metrodash knew that his odds of getting out of this in one piece were dwindling rapidly. His odds of getting out of this alive were even less. However, if he could stop these two, they could at least download his personality out of Metrotitan's central computer and into a new body. Which, he mused to himself, was a pity. He rather liked this body...... There was one sure way out of this. He had an idea, but he wanted to clear it with whoever would have to clean up the mess afterward. Activating his internal commlink, he managed to keep his voice steady. "Metrobomb, this is Metrodash. There's a couple of Autobots down here...... and I can't take them out.

Angrily slapping the intercom button, he yelled, "Blow up the armory? Are you INSANE?!?!?!?" Then he heard the weary, pained sigh on the other end of the signal.

"Metrobomb, This body's dead anyway. I've got no chance of taking them both out. This is the only hope I have of getting them both."

Metrobomb's optics darkened, internal shutters closing in sadness. "But... you can't! Don't leave me alone with Krunix! He's got all the personality of a dead fish!"

Krunix didn't have time to react to the Metrodrone carcass swinging towards him when he felt an explosion rattle the city several decks down. The decking pitched steeply under his feet, throwing the large Decepticon backwards into yet another pile of Metrodrone parts. A discocerting creak filled the atrium for several seconds, as the strain of the explosion was absorbed by the room's damaged structural supports.

Pushing himself out of the heap of debris, he activated his comlink and shouted, "What the hell is going on, Metrobomb?"

As he was shouting at the city-commanding dwarf, he grabbed a Metrodrone torso from the pile and tossed it at Roadbuster.

Krunix was about to snap off a venomous retort to Metrobomb when the decking rocked for the second time in as many minutes. The structural supports creaked again, and bits of debris began to rain down from above. When Roadbuster's weaponsfire tore into the cieling, the large Decepticon bit back an ancient Cybertronian curse.

Chunks of debris started to rain down on both combatants, as ceiling tiles, ductwork, electrical wiring and structural supports fell from the sky. One of the latter slammed directly into Krunix's shoulder, pinning him as a deep pile of debris built up above him.

Metrobomb's panicked exclamation was answered only by dead air.

The Wrecker glanced around the room that he found himself in, confused. There were odd devices on the ceiling, the walls looked strangely false, and the floor...

The floor was a giant heating grille.

When I heard the explosion I thought Id be facing some colossal waves but by the looks of this techno babble the only thing I'll be facing down here is some mildly loud WAVs", chuckled the ever positive Autobot.

Seaspray paused for a moment, realising that he was perhaps appearing foolish, which reminded him of his previous misadventures.

"I don't we have time for me to explain how I ended up in Antarctica but rest assured anything that the "imaginative" Astra says isn't true. Why that mischievous maiden will probably say that I have been frozen in a iceberg or something...I mean imagine that"

The Powermaster reached into Metroshot's chest and twisted a pair of wires together, "...we just got ourselves a new spy."

The Decepticon drone didn't respond for a few seconds, then his optics started to flash. The flashing quickly became asynchronous, which worried the Powermaster.

"Virus detected," a flat, mechanical voice said from within the drone's chest. As it spoke, Metroshot's seperated limbs clattered across the floor as if drawn by a magnetic pull, and re-connected to his shoulders and hips. "Initiating countermeasures."

Cosmms clambered up the rocks partially blocking the entrance and made his way inside. The darkness made no difference to his sight, but it did make him uncomfortable: he thought briefly about caling this in to HQ and getting a proper tem to excavate the sight. however, a desperate need to do something himself took over, and he resolved that if he did get stuck in the cave... well, he just would make sure he didn't get stuck.

“Hey I was right about the WAVs wasn’t I…still…” said the weary Seaspary, trying desperately to sound upbeat. He looked around. After staring at Getaway it would seem that his name alone and what it entails jogged the sailor’s basic instincts, bringing him out of his trance like state.

“Ahem, I don’t know much about this stuff but but judging from that sound alone I think it best we abandon ship!” shouted Seaspray as the Minibot ran cover in his patented awkward fashion.

The Powermaster raised an optic ridge at that.

"You don't say?"

"Oh, can the slag," the drone leaned up and snapped with wearied anger. Then, as if the action had sapped his last reserves of energy, he slumped back to the floor. "I know...I know exactly what you were doing. You messed up...something."

"How?" the veteran warrior demanded.

"You put me in here, but you didn't take him out!" Metroshot (or was it Scamper...or both?) would have been screaming if his voice could rise above a whisper in his current state.

For his part, Metroshot's attention was focussed on Aero Blade. Finally managing to lever himself into a sitting position, he nodded.

"Personality, memories, hopes, dreams...everything! If we hadn't been...based on the same basic coding, I'd prob'ly be...stuck in the nuthouse drooling oil for the rest of my life."

The apprehensive sailor monitored Metroshot.

"I think it best we wait for the mission to end and see what we can do back at base...I also think the lad is getting too close for his comfort and my own...If that...thing starts acting up, I'm not going to hesitate" said the minibot as he armed his lasers.

Admittedly, being a micromaster meant that just about everybody he'd ever met, worked with, been chased by, or been ordered around by was by definition bigger than he was, but the Autobot that was approaching the bridge level was big. It was also battered and dinged, and he knew the pod behind it's left shoulder was gone, but this..... this level of.... of brutality...... "If only he was under my command. I could take over the Decepticons......" Then he took a step back as the Autobot looked up at one of the hallway cameras, the emerald green optic band blazing with enough fury to almost wash out the rest of the picture.

Roadbuster: -over the speaker panel- "I'm coming for you, Decepticon. And your death..... well, I know I'm going to enjoy sending footage of your tortured screams to that wimp, Gigatron." -raises linear blaster cannon, pulls trigger-

Metrobomb winced as the screen flared and went blank, then went back to typing frantically at the panel he'd been working at. "Hate to do this, Metrodash, but I need a brain in this thing......"

-------------------

Optics flickered to life in a darkened bay, glowing bright red as they blinked a couple of times. Metrodash groaned. "Wow.... that wasn't any fun...." His body felt heavy. But, since he'd blown his last one up, he figured this was just a side effect. He lurched to his feet, vertigo causing him to sway..... "Dizzy.... why's the deck so... far..... What the...."

Metrobomb's voice crackled to life over the intercom. "Sorry, Metrodash, but Krunix is probably dead, I'm kind of detecting Metroshot, and the Metrodrones aren't slowing this one Autobot down any. I had to put you in.... it."

Metrodash's optics widened. "But this thing's experimental!"

Metrobomb sounded sympathetic. "It also needs a brain."

Metrodash's optics narrowed angrily. "If I survive this, Metrobomb, I'm gonna kill you."

"If we survive this, you're more than welcome to."

Getaway glanced once more at Metroshot before answering Seaspray.

"Not an option," he said just as quietly. "He's tied into Metrotitan's citybanks, just like Sixgun is tied to Metroplex. Even assuming he managed not to die outright after we dragged him half way around the world, he'd never be anything more than a vegatible."

The Powermaster shook his head.

"No. If we're going to do something, we're going to have to do it here and now." His optics darkened. "I'm the one who dragged you guys into this...it's my responsability."

The escape artist's grip tightened around the handle of his shotgun. He pumped the handle once and strode purposefully towards Metroshot.

Metroshot glowered at Aero Blade.

"I..." He seemed to be at a momentary loss for words. "No...and yes!"

The drone clambered to his feet and stared directly into the Autobot's optics.

"How would you feel if someone did something like this to your head without permission? You wouldn't like it very much, would you?"

Aero Blade didn't once break optics with Metroshot, nor did his expression change. His voice tone was low, so that no-one else would hear, but the words would be very clear to Metroshot.

"Be glad that it is only your mind, not your body and spark as well. You may have mixed memories, but consider them a gift. Mine were completely taken from me. I have no idea who I once was, or who I might have become. Take joy in the fact that you can still see your way, and are not blind like I..."

Cosmos had found his way into the cramped "quarters" section of the ship. He felt like crying.
On three seperate Bunks lay the cold empty bodies of three autobots. They were clearly offline, permanantly. He clicked on radio, wanting to call in the sad news, when he noticed three small CR Chambers, each at the foot of a bunk.
He stepped into the dank dark room, and fumbled at the middle chamber.
Online? Something this small must be a Micromaster...
Cosmos started the opening sequnces for all three chambers, stepped back to the door to flick on the lights and waited for the occupants to come out...

Bumblebee watched as the fluid leaked out of Trailbreaker and grimmaced behind his helmets faceplace. He extended a cable from his armour and connected it to the other Autobot's systems.

He turned to Warpath and Guzzle:

"Breaker's not doing to good - I can stablize him, but we need to get him medical attention as fast as possible."

The human-sized Pretender pulled out his tool kit and started trying to stablize the big, black, Autobot:

"Breaker - I need you to power-down any non-essential systems. The more you do - the harder you're going to make it on me to keep you going. I've been out of this for a long time - so I'm a little rusty...."

While he started repairs, he turned back to the other two:

Getaway replied to Overdrive over the comm. "I'm in auxiliary energon storage with Aero Blade, Jazz, Seaspray...and Metroshot," he said. "We've secured the area...but we could use an extra brain or two right about now, if you've got nowhere else to be."

The Powermaster came to a stop just behind Aero and whispered to the other Autobot. "Do you think he's...salvagable?"

Aero Blade's previously saddden mood was begining to dissapear and be replaced by irritation as he contined to interact with Metroshot.

"You may not believe it right now, but you are, though I'm not going to argue with you on it. If you're any more like me, then I know you're not gonna change your mind, even in the pressence of overwelming proof otherwise, so I won't waste my time, especially if you're going to be aggressive..."

As Getaway approached, Aero awarded him with an agrivated expression at his choice of words, nor did he bother to be descrete with his own tone, letting it be at a normal volume level.

"Save 'salvagable' for inatimate objects. If you want to know if he can be reprogramed again, I'm not doing it anymore," He said firmly. "If you want to know if he'll be able to work with us, you'll have to ask him that..."

Metroshot scowled at Aero Blade's comment, and seriously contemplated beating the hell out of the Autobot. The sight of the shotgun-toting Getaway, however, convinced him to restrain himself.

Getaway, for his part, was equally irritated with Aero, although he knew this was neither the time nor the place to reprimand the junior Autobot for his attitude.

"If I thought he could give me an answer, I wouldn't have asked you," he told Aero, before turning away from the other and taking a few more steps towards Metroshot.

"I don't care who you used to be, or what you were supposed to be," he told the prickly drone plainly. "I don't care what grevences you have, and I don't care which faction you want to side with. Frankly, I don't think you even know any of that yet. I only care about one thing. Right here, right now...are you going to attack my fellow Autobots?"

At that point Aero turned to face away from all of them. His own agression seemed to be calming down to mute irritation, but generally his body language seemed to read like someone who'd had a nerve struck, and would still have it agitated for awhile.

Metroshot, for his part, still wasn't sure how to answer the Autobot's question. His first inclination was to answer 'no', but a big part of him was practically shouting at him to slay the intruders where they stood.

"Listen “child” this is a pretty sticky situation, the last thing we need is a fight" whispered Seaspray to Aeroblade.

Seaspray squinted a little at Getaway and lowered the volume oif his whisper yet again

"You need to show respect, continue this way and you two will be on the floor, seeing who can dent who's armour the most and no matter how much I’d love to see that believe me no matter how much you damage his ego, it won't compare to the damage he’ll do to you", said the Minibot, in an attempt to scaremonger Aero.

I betrayed him and myself with no resistance..."

Aero Blade closed his optics for a moment, as though gathering his thoughts. "But I do care about him... It's part my fault that he's like this now. I'm obligated to do something.."

For the moment at least, Aero seemed to manage to simply discard his emotions and keeping an normal expression, walking back over towards Metroshot, though seeming to be ignoring Getaway for the moment. He stopped a short distance away, giving time and room for the drone to protest if he chose to.

"Already have," the drone said sharply, gesturing pointedly to a nearby computer terminal. "Short version is, there's a half-dozen Metrodrones wandering around there."

Getaway peered at the schematic for a minute, picking out potential entrances and escape routes, then nodded.

"We can do this," he told Overdrive.

"Thanks Sky Lynx."
Hound transformed responsively to jeep mode and put up holograms of humans walking around inside Sky Lynx and of Spike in the driver's seat as a couple of airport employees wheeled unloading ramps over.

One employee grinned and called up with a thick accent, "Only one vehicle? You guys be takin' too many breaks!"
The second employee stared at the old Willys. "Why don't they send newer cars?"

Hound chuckled as he drove past. "Last delivery- it's going to a collection."
Data collection, that is.

As he reached the bottom of the ramp, he heard the employees talking about how collectors will keep anything.
Maybe I am a bit outdated. Hmmm. Eh- mind on the task at hand. Port 4... cargo deck.

Driving down the transit lines drawn on the airfield grounds, Hound quickly reached the ships. He slowed and stopped for a moment as he spotted a garbage scow, seemingly in the docking spot where he was supposed to be heading.

Prowl wouldn't.

It puzzled Hound briefly, until he realized the ship had begun pulling away. Sky Lynx had made better time than expected, and the cargo hauler was just about to pull in, laden with older cars and a sparse couple of newer ones. In the mix happened to be an older CJ and a restored Willys- done up in a cadet blue rather than green.

Looks like I'll fit right in down here after all.

" Totally agree, monsieur " conceded Crosscut at the Prime Minister's reproach, " but if we decided to use an unusual aproach to you it's only because we didn't want to take any risk of Decepticon intrusion on this peacefull diplomatic mission. Is for that reaseon I apologize to you and your people again. "

Crosscut graciously dropped to one knee to let the Prime Minister eyes to take a better ( and nearest) look on his semi-hidden face and optics.

" And we don't have any intention of cause any kind of damage to Quebec or you, of course. You have my word. "

Override was having a good time driving through some human road, but he began to be worry himself.

"Offhand, I'd say you're doing better than me," Aero said in an edged tone, but it was low enough that only Metroshot would hear. "I'll spare you the arguement only because you're occupied right now..."

After that, Aero went quiet for awhile, keeping himself in check. He was trying to help, but Metroshot didn't seem to want to give any chance for that.Maybe later on he'd settle down a bit.

Bridge, Metrotitan:


Metrobomb kept one optic on the monitors, and the other on the corridor defense weapons, watching as the weapons function indicator lights blink out one by one.......... "We're doomed."

Metrotitan's voice echoed again over the speakers. "You keep saying that. If it is our fate to die, then so be it. I knew it was going to happen when the armory and engineering went. Face death with dignity."

Metrobomb opened his mouth to reply, but was interrupted by the bridge doors being blown open, narrowly missing being decapitated by a flying door section, staring in shock at the battered, scored, and soot-covered Autobot standing in the doorway.

Roadbuster: -gouges burned in his torso and arms by lasers, dents in his bracers, shoulder pauldrons, torso and legs, covered lightly with soot, stalks onto the bridge, fixing Metrobomb with an emerald glare- "Last one, huh."

Metrobomb simply nodded, then leaped for a button on the console.

Roadbuster: -fires linear blaster cannon, blowing Metrobomb's left arm off at the elbow, knocking the micromaster in another direction-

Metrobomb slammed into the base of the main console, looking in dazed shock at the stump of his ruined arm. Then he looked dazedly up at Roadbuster, or, more importantly, the weapon barrels pointing at him. Pulling a small pistol out of subspace, he said, "I am a Decepticon. I shall die-"

Roadbuster: -growls- "Like the piece of filth that you are." -fires again, destroying Metrobomb's arm at the right elbow-

Metrobomb howled, his right arm disintegrating from the blast, looks up at the Autobot's face(or lack thereof). "You.... you're an Autobot.... grant me mercy....."

Roadbuster: -snorts- "I'm not that kind of Autobot." -jams barrel of linear blaster cannon against Metrobomb's neck and upper torso, pulls trigger, the blast obliterating the micromaster's laser core and most of the upper torso, his head rocketing up, bouncing off the ceiling, and landing in the bottom of Roadbuster's blown out ammo pod- "That trick never gets old."

Metrotitan sighed. "You are a savage."

Roadbuster: -flipping switches on consoles, destroying the comm console, priming the base's scuttling charges- "I am what I was built to be." -pulls out a data padd, activates commlink- "Wreckers, this is Roadbuster. Scuttling charges are set. You have five minutes to clear out of this city before it explodes." -deactivates commlink- "Good bye, Metrotitan. And this isn't your fault. Blame those who stole Metroplex's body and put you in it." -runs off the bridge-

Metroshot simply grunted and picked up his pace a bit, leaving Aero Blade a few paces behind. He knew the Autobot was trying to help, but the idea of accepting help from an Autobot was anathema to half of him.

Hound drove up and aboard the ferry, parking near the front and by a railing. It was a short matter of time before the transport began heading down the coastline of the islands. It wasn't long before the ferry reached the main port in Matanzas, but he had thouroughly enjoyed the scenic trip.

After disembarking, Hound drove slowly through the small towns and out towards the heavier tropic jungle growth of the less-populated areas where he would begin his scans.

Trailbreaker was becoming dimly aware that other transformers had arrived, but without the necessary amounts of fluids to continue cooling processes and proper functioning of his repair systems, his engine was starting to overheat.

"We could do that, yeah," Whirl conceded to Hardhead. "It'd be a lot easier to just use the door a few feet up ahead, though..."

The tall Wrecker kicked the hatch open with one of his skids, then jumped out of the city, transforming into helicopter mode as he did so. Spinning in the air, he offered one of his skis to the Headmaster.

"Grab hold. It's a long way down for poor, flight-challenged mechs like you."

Metroshot scowled. "No. I've been having problems with my system interlink. Probably because of that Autobot you people put inside my head."

He keyed the door pad and a ramp whirred out of the ships side.


striding up the ramp he turned and surveyed the shuttle bay

He opened a com link


"all aboard everyone we need a pilot for the Spectre, how about it Sandstorm show everyone else how an expert does it, anyone else with piloting skills grab one of the smaller shuttles "

he gestured round the cavernous bay , there were several shuttles docked there with names such as Spook, Phantom and Shade amongst others

"Strap in, chief. I can't promise this'll be an easy ride if the 'Cons decide to take a shot at us."

With that, he jammed the shuttle's throttle forward, and the Ghoul blazed forward, riding a tail of fire out into the Antarctic hinterland.

Aero Blade had been strapped into his chosen seat and ready for takeoff, but he'd not quite been expecting a volitile takeoff like that. When the shuttle blasted forward, Aero's head snapped back, luckily smacking into the headrest that was for such purposes.

It did little to improve his already existing condition, however, as he put his hands to the back of his head, which was suffering from having triggered yet another dizzzy spell along with some intense nausea. To any outside observer, though, it just looked like he was seething over a headache caused by the unexpected impact.

Hound parked himself in the wild foliage and began scanning. Topography levelled to a thermal scan and he paused as he read heat signatures radiating from the island.

The scout paused in confusion, then restarted his thermal scan. Hearing noises, he adjusted his mirrors and noticed several flocks of birds flying out towards the ocean. Puzzled again, he transformed to robot mode to gain height and moved through the bushes to a different spot.

From his higher vantage he began a third scan and frowned as temperature readings showed themselves to be increasing beyond dangerous levels. He looked around, and saw the beachline empty with white foam decorating the slowly-rolling waves, but his olfactory sensors picked up what he instantly recognized as a sulphuric smell. A closer look revealed that the foam was actually dead fish and the plants were withering and dying.

As the results of his observations and scans came back, Hound instantly knew that the island's volcanic activity must be responsible.

The small ship was rocked repeatedly by the explosions, but Getaway kept a firm hand on the control stick as debris from Metrotitan slammed into them. Behind the Ghoul several of the slave-rigged shuttles exploded, their hulls not tough enough to endure the heat and impacts.

A particularly large piece of debris hit them just aft of the main viewport, slamming the ship downwards. There was an unnerving rip sound from the belly of the shuttle as they hit the frozen ground, bounced, then hit again.

"Hold on, folks..."

There was a faint retching sound from inside Getaway's chest compartment, but he chose to ignore it for the moment.

Pulling up on the control stick, he managed to get the Ghoul to rise shakily. A few seconds later, they cleared the last of the fire and debris.

"That was fun," he sighed. "Now if one of you guy could find me a Shop-Vac..."

His scanners continued to radiate information on the increasing danger, but the scout's other senses alerted him to the more looming and immediate threat before his scanners did.

The noise of the distant thrust of the Decepticon jets was unmistakeable, but they weren't heading for him- the course of the distant vapor trails was set toward the human cities.
No...
"No... No!" Realizing instantly what the cryptic message included, he transformed back to his jeep mode and began speeding down toward the settlements.

City, Cuba

Skyquake transformed and starred coldly at the horrified humans.

"Stalker amplify this...I want this...to be heard", said Skyquake in his cold, whispery voice.

Stalker adjusted his amplifiers to Skyquake's voice. His amplifier blasted Skyquake's speech at full volume, causing the ground to shake.

"Hmmm...Humans of Cuba...the Autobots have interfered...so now...we...must act...you must face you're own mortality...I will see to that...unfair I know...why should a being of my grandeur waste my...miserable time...on the likes of you...you are nothing to me...nothing...this is barely constitutes as …the beginning of… what’s to come…a new era…is on the horizon…where the sun never sets…blocked out by the darkness…blocked out by…the blanket of evil the likes of you humans strive…to create…but are too weak to achieve…or admit you even tried create it in the first place…".

Skyquake raised his rocket launcher

"...The sky itself will quake…hmm…you are nothing to me and so I will not waste any more of my words on your redundant ears…neither good nor evil…you are nothing…this is nothing… Talon, Stalker... transform...time to rid ourselves of this menial task...hmmm..."

Talon, midair, transformed and raised his own rocket launcher. Stalker transformed into to his massive robot mode, casting his grim shadow over the streets, covering the last ounce of hope.

"This does not please me...this does not sadden me...no those are not the traits of a being...of...100%...evil...but it’s doing its best to annoy me"

"Sir...permission to crush the fleshlings" shouted the overenthusiastic Talon

"You are a walking cliché...a symbol of what the Deceptcion army has become...perhaps what its always been…you do not understand nor will you ever...indulge yourself...blow things up...get your jollies...have your pathetic fun...fun is not a trait of a true… e...erg...hmmm…my words are wasted on the likes of you...crush the fleshlings as you so "aptly" put”

"We're on our way Hound. Use extreme caution, we'll be there as soon as possible."

Thinking quickly, Hound saw the three Decepticons gathering and preparing.
The really long speech gave him time to close the gap, and he transformed, bringing his missile launcher up to his shoulder and holding his rifle in his right hand. He broke over the Decepticon radio frequency in the local zone.

He stood sideways to the trio, roughly 500 feet away, aiming his weaponry at the city. Hound growled a deepened, fierce sounding command into the radio. His former reprogramming still haunted him, and he knew the effects of it had corrupted his energy signature enough that it might allow him to pass a very temporary distraction.

"Fellow Decepticons, hold your fire! By the direction of Soundwave and our mighty Lord Gigatron, I have been programmed and sent to strike the first blows for the glory of the Decepticon empire while the Earthlings' cameras bear witness, thereby reducing the Autobot reputation to dust in the eyes of the rest of this planet's flesh creatures."

OOC: Sorry about the absence, been kinda busy with life and stuff, will try to post more, promise. Going to work right now though

Seaspray ran after Sandstorm

"You heard the 'Bot, you need someone to man the weapons..and the er... coms, how about Sandy, wanna give this crusty old sailor something to do?" chuckled the Minibot as he proceeded to enter the Spectre.

"Sure, that would help" Sandstorm nodded back at the minibot with a smile as he ran pre-flight checks to make this Decepticon vessel was in working order "Check how the others are doing in their shuttles first, ok"

Override followed the directions given by Cosmos. Well, followed: there was a lot of interpretation as to what the best route was, and when the scout arrived at the destination, things were a little heated.
Cosmos landed in a huff. "You could have been here hours ago if you'd just-" he was interrupted by Override.
"Are you a scout? Or even a ground vehicle? I can't fly dimwit. I need to the "The Long Way Round!" "
Cosmos turned away: already his good deed was turning into a pain.
"Look, you're here now. Take these three back asap, from waht I here we need soldiers. Tell Hq I'm taking to the Atmosphere, see if there's anything worth looking at."
With that, the Green Minibot transformed back into his UFO mode and took off into the distance.

Dogfight watched as Fxit worked on the wounded. Instinctively, he went to the nearest flyer for an update.
"Hey, Devcon, what happened? Thought this was a pick up mission? How many were there?"

Seaspray poked his head outside the left hatch.

“Woah! Sandy they’ve already begun their voyages matey” said the seafaring Minibot as he slid back into his seat,

“Eh and by that I mean they’re already leaving cap'n, so how about we begin our own voyage and set sail!”

"Turned into an ambush" Devcon replied neutrally, his stance calm as he glanced at Dogfight "And I didn't count them, too busy fighting them off to do that"

"So are we" Sandstorm called back as the shuttle lifted off "Just checking this bucket of bolts wasn't booby-trapped or needed an access code to fly. Now sit down and strap yourself, 'spray, coz here we go"
