Mirage looked at the chip with a puzzled expression for a moment and the grinned as Jazz launched into an explanation, but when the topics of the movies and hidden cargo came up, he burst out with hearty laughter. In his travels around the citybot, the spy had seen more of Earth culture hidden and stashed than he would've ever told anyone. He shot Jazz a million-dollar grin.

"Should've known you wouldn't be going back home without souveiniers! You and a lot of others." Mirage got a softer smile to take note of Jazz's fondness to the Earth.
As nice as it'll be to get home, I guess this planet wasn't too bad. Movies sound pretty good. The humans sure have some good actors."

He was about to add more about learning from them, but he stopped to give pleasantries to the Motorvators, nodding politely to their entrance.

He answered to the introduction, "Hello Lightspeed," then listened to the rant.

Spike looked around at the changes with an impressed look.
"Hey thanks! Feels different Wheeljack, but it's comfortable- looks good too. I think that trying it out would be a good idea, but I'm not sure where Hound is at the moment. I heard something about Cuba. We'll try it as soon as we can."

Tracks' Quarters, Fort Max:


Tracks: -walks in, smiling as he sees all the delivered crates, starts checking the packing slips against the contents of the boxes- "Body panels, doors, glass, suspension and engine parts.... it's all here. Now, if I need parts, I can replicate them using these as the base, possibly toughen them up a little as well. Modern technology is a wonderful thing......"

Outside/Fort Max Corridors:


Nebulon: -makes a final, desperate leap, manages to grab onto the back of the skiff, pulls himself up, looking at Stepper, whistling in relief-

Security Briefing Room, Fort Max:


Prime: -looking at the details of both plans, optics revealing nothing of the inner struggle he goes through every time a decision like this comes along, nods- "The second plan, Prowl. The ones there are low profile enough that we can slip them aboard without too much trouble."

Ironhide: -nods- "Awlrahght, Scattershot, get back ta yer team. We're gonna need Jetwave back onlahne soon's we c'n get him."

Roadbuster: -guiding the damaged Aero Blade through the doorway- "Hey, Ratchet, got somebody who needs to see you."

***********************
Bridge, Fort Max:


Fortress: -closing the external hatches(after Astra boards with the skiff)bringing the anti-grav engines from standby to full power, activates commlink- "Omega Supreme, Countdown, this is Fortress. We are lifting off. Meet us in orbit. Out."

Grimlock: -checking controls and readings- "Look good so far."

Fortress: -setting the course in- "One pass around the Earth, sensors at full."

Grimlock: "Part of me hope they try to pull fast one."

Fortress: -nods- "You and me both."

Omega Supreme retracted his tank, track, and launched, rising into the air on a pillar of fire, angling straight up towards the edge of the atmosphere as the Maximus headed East, slowly gaining altitude as it went.

ooc: NPCing Ratchet
Ratchet nodded to Overdrive as he left medbay, but then heard his name called.
"Be right with you."
He turned to see who it was and saw Roadbuster coming in with Aero Blade.

Security Briefing Room

"Yes Sir. We'll send them while we're in discussions on the Moon." Prowl replied to Optimus. "Now for ground troops, we'll have a much wider opening to get them in once the first team hits the ground. We get them through here and here, *pointing respectively* when the shields are dropped for the first entry. As WW attacks and widens the breach, we have the undercover group attack and then our fastest carriers can work to extract them while the rest of the units are entering. With a bit of slick coating to repel scanning equipment, they likely won't even notice the small team is there and picking up the infiltrators."

Once he was finished outlining the rest of the strategy, he looked to Optimus again.

Aero Blade
2006-09-18, 05:25 AM
Aero Blade didn't give the Wrecker any trouble leading him in, seemingly exhausted from the previous events, but a moment later and another change occured. Roadbuster would be able to feel Aero change from from being pretty much a limp rag to absolutely rigged from the moment he spotted Ratchet. He made no movements after that, simply standing stock still, optics seemingly glued on the medic.

Turbolift:

"Thanks, Ironhide!" - Scattershot replied, glad that Ironhide hadn't enquired further into the incident. "We won't fail!"

Stepping out of the turbolift, he activated the comm link.

"Afterburner, had Lightspeed arrived with Jetwave?"

"Not yet."

"I'm going to medbay to hurry him up. Ironhide says that we would require functional Jetwave as soon as we can."

"Roger that, captain."

Putting back the comm link, Scattershot transformed into his jet mode and sped to med bay...

Entering the med bay, he spotted Lightspeed standing aside and came to him.

"Had Wheeljack finished his work?"

"What?.." - Lightspeed asked absentmindedly, as if engrossed in some thought. - "Oh, yes. I was about to come and ask him about Jetwave".

"I'll do it myself", - and Scattershot pushed through the croud of Autobots, coming closer to Spike and Wheeljack.

"Congratulations with the operation, both of you! Now I need to borrow you, Wheeljack, for a while - we've finished manufacturing the replacement parts for Jetwave, according to blueprints, and now it is time for you to assemble them and make the reformat..."

Jazz shuddered a bit when the city lifted off, but it was designed cleverly enough to minimize turbulence for the passengers. He turned to answer Mirage, but stopped himself at Lightspeed's arrival. He smiled along and held up his hands defensively at the mention of the Technobot.

"Hey man, it's cool. We're all friends here, right? Th'other Lightspeed's a good dude. I'm Jazz, bro. This cowboy's Mirage."

Jazz nodded Sizzle toward an empty seat with a grin.

"Hey, good ta see ya mac. Have a seat, get comfy."

Dogfight was satisfied. He had found a pair of clips for his machine gun, a new load of mini missiles for his shoulder- mounted launcher, four new missiles and his recent stay on a CR chamber had repaired his pair of fusion blowtorch blasters.

Grinning, he aproached the door of the Practice bay and looked inside.

" Hey Guzzle, how are you doing? "

Skids was too busy with the Quintesson husk he didn't notice the citybot's takeoff. He already had finished the analysis of the Quintesson husk metal composition and started an intensive study of it's characteristics.

Ratchet looked Aero Blade up and down once with an assessing expression and then frowned at Roadbuster.

He didn't say anything directly, but the doc was quite certain that Aero's external damage hadn't come from a battlefield.

He grumbled to himself as he glanced around for an empty table. "More work."

He sighed and spoke up so the two could hear him.
"Right. Aero Blade, up on the table. Roadbuster, go - take a break. This place is busier than Iacon hub at rushhour."

Aero Blade
2006-09-19, 01:06 PM
Aero Blade for the moment remained stock still, enough to make any observer wonder if he'd even heard Ratchet speak up. Though his outside appearance made it seem he'd frozen up, inside Aero's processor was going full tilt.

He knew exactly what he was looking at, it was unmistakable - the expressions, the voice tones, the movements and stances - this wasn't just any old medic, it was the senior doctor, and more often than not, the worst of the lot...

No, Aero wasn't about to respond, not to this guy. He just stayed as he was, his processor ablaze trying to figure out how to get him out of this situation, praying Ratchet didn't decide to approach him.

Bluestreak sighed and barely moved as he felt the city lift off. Guess they were going somewhere, for all the good he'd do.

"Whoa" Catilla replied, staggering a bit as the base took off, then he looked up at Seaspray with a smirk, adding "Looks like we're off then"

* * * * *

Corridors, Fort Max

Having followed Roadbuster to the med-bay, Sandstorm leant against the wall outside, it'd be best not to grace Ratchet with his presence, considering how many times the medic had to patch him up.

Having finished with what he was doing in the corridors, Devcon strode into the room and got a drink, then took a seat in a corner, silently watching the others, his attention on Jazz and Mirage in particular.

Medbay, Fort Max

Entering the room, Astra looked around at the activity, then moved to look for an empty C.R Chamber to put Stepper in, the skiff following her.

"You're welcome" Wheeljack nodded at Spike, then turned his attention to Scattershot as the Technobot came over, nodding again and remembering the other patient that he had to repair, his tone sober as he replied Yes, yes. Of course, lead the way"

Ironhide: "Where's our power reserves at?"

Fortress: "Thanks to the generator Metalhawk provided, we've got enough for the battle. Still making me a little uneasy, though. Simulation's all well and good, but it hasn't been tested in battle yet."

Ironhide: "Have a lil' faith, Fortress. Things're gonna work out fahne, an' we're gonna take our planet back."

"I don't want to get all sea- rious, but there’s something I have to get off my chest…y’know… before we…err… brave the storm. Y’see…I…no…When this is all over, and I mean "over", I want to live on Earth. Not Permanently of coarse - you have no idea how much I’ve missed you all. Seeing old friends and making new ones fills my “heart” with joy - but there’s another part of me that…that… calls out to the sea…I want to become one with the ocean. I love…I love its waves. I love how wonderfully blue it is. I love the hearth-breaking breeze, which I cannot touch or feel. Most of all… I love the feeling. It's...it's…it's freedom. Tell me Sea Lion, when was the last time you genuinely felt free? I know I can't remember", said Seaspray. The Minibot stared at the ground - the humour was gone, the jokes buried by reality, and the idea of a "jolly good battle" no longer made sense.

"Anyway, I don't know what's going to happen, I may not even have a part to play… I’ve certainly seen better days. Hmmmmm…I probably sound like the crusty old sailor that I am, but I felt someone should know. I just want every single Autobot to feel the way I feel when I dance with the sea. I want...I…I just want us all to be free...for once" said a melancholic Seaspray, too embarrassed to even look at Catilla.

Ratchet swept up a toolkit and turned with a puzzled expression.

"A hard time? Let's have a look there then. Are your movement and motion controllers malfunctioning Aero Blade?" Ratchet asked with a calm expression as he began heading towards Roadbuster and the seemingly-stricken Aero Blade.

Smokescreen wandered up toward the bridge, stopping now and again to check various incoming messages from the human radio and television. Even though they were leaving Earth, he still enjoyed listening to the things going on.

Having finished up in the little room as best he could, Daniel stepped out of the room and looked around med-bay. It still seemed to be in massive chaos, so he took it upon himself to help Ratchet out:

"Any Autobots who need minor medical attention, please step into my office."

Elcor
2006-09-20, 12:11 PM
"Thanks, buddy", - Scattershot replied, as he, Wheeljack and Lightspeed walked to the Stasis Pod 12 where Jetwave's body was.

"I've told you already that we've got all the parts nesessary in the Enginee... Oh, damn. And Jetwave's here. Do you wish him to be brought into Enineering or the parts to be delivered here? We could do it either way... But for transporting Jetwave we'd have to merge into Computron, though."

Aero Blade
2006-09-20, 12:53 PM
Uh oh, the tools.....

Aero Blade hadn't responded much to Roadbuster's nudge, aside from being pushed slightly but not enough to move him, but when Ratchet started towards him, Aero responded immediately, backing away. This, of course, caused him to back into Roadbuster, upon which he made a startled jump away, turning sharply to see what he'd connected with. A split moment later and his attention was back on Ratchet again, realizing he'd just moved himself closer to the medic.

Seemingly hemmed in, Aero was begining to show signs of panic, as well as adopting a defensive and somewhat agressive stance. He started to creep away to the side, trying to move into a possition where he could more easily keep an eye on the both of them, but to find some way of escape...

Jazz nodded to Mirage as he left with his usual grin.

"Hakuna matata, buddy. Gimme a holler next time ya got a free minute. If not - heh - see ya at Iacon!"

Jazz took a moment to note that his trendsetting habit had followed him again; the recently-empty chamber was becoming rather full. Personally, Jazz liked it that way. He waved to Silverbolt in response to the nod, then shook his head at Sizzle.

"Ain't no problem," he answered, grinning to Lightspeed. "Jus' chattin'. Ain't that right, big guy?"

Skyfire had only just settled in and got a chance to start browsing through the journals logged since he'd last been in the lab when he received Prowl's call. It was only because he was so close to indulging himself in his most enjoyed work that he sighed, but he was quick to answer.

"Roger, Prowl. Skyfire here and willing. Awaiting further instruction."

Fort Max Shuttle bay.

Sunstreaker stumbled backwards and Sideswipe kept coming forward, swinging at his mold brother's head. Sunstreaker ducked the next swing, dropping foward and wrapping his arm around Sideswipe's and jerking him backwards hard landing the red Autobot on his back.

Sideswipe was cringed as he felt the servo's in his arm pop from the hard jerking motion. Sunstreaker had never managed that type of damage from a tug before. New body upgrades. Sideswipe's thoughts were broken up by a knee landing on his face dazing him even further.

Suntreaker got back to standing and hauled Sideswipe to his feet. Sideswipe struggled to keep his equilibrium, his left arm hanging a little bit lower from the shoulder joint, sparks flying from the socket. Sunstreaker didn't relent landing a heavy punch to the stomach of Sideswipe, causing him to hunch over, Sunstreaker then lept up giving a knee to the face of his mechternal sibling, knocking him hard to his back, oil and fluid draining from his arm and face.

"You done? Or do I have to dissect you sum'more?" Sunstreaker asked, leaning over Sideswipe.

"hzzztI'm not thr-zzt-ough with yo-o-o-ou," the vocordor suttered with the damage it had just received from the knee to the face.

"Sure thing, Wheeljack - they'll be here in a nanobreem!" - Scattershot replied, then turned to unusually quiet Lightspeed:

"You go to the Engineering, help our guys to bring the new parts here. Move it!"

Lightspeed complied, still not saying a word. Scattershot followed him with a troubled gaze, then activated his comm link and contacted Afterburner.

"Guys, we be assembling Jetwave here. Bring the parts to Stasis Bay 12; I've sent Lightspeed to help with the transportation."

"Roger. Afterburner out" - sounded from the comm link.

Turning around, Scattershot stared once again in wonder and horror at Jetwave's remains under the pod's fiberglass surface.

"What do you say, Wheeljack - is it safe to take him out of the pod? Or you'll operate him inside? I'm curious, I've never seen a reformat before..."

Lightspeed glared around at the room, particularly at Jazz. No one was taking him seriously! This was his name he was talking about!
"It'll all be settled soon: me and the faker are gonna race for it, soon as his team finish what ever they're doing. I say race: it's already won if I'm taking part!"

Gripper looked over at the junior member of the team, and groaned.
"Little punk," he said to Flame,"Why's he always stirring up trouble?"
"Should we go and support the scout, sir? And by support, I mean get him to calm down."
Gripper considered his troubleshooters advice.
"Maybe; we'll see if the others start giving him a hard time."

Having his changes completed, Spike hopped back up on a hand that Swoop offered.

"Spike look different.
Not headmaster anymore?"

"Ah, I don't know Swoop. For right now, Fortress doesn't need me as much as I'm needed for an accessory piece to Hound's hologun."

The dinobot studied the human and shook his head.
"Spike is not an accessory. You friend."

"Haha! I hope so Swoop. I feel the same way about you guys."

The dinobot started heading out of medbay while still talking. "You not mind leaving Earth Spike?"

"Eh, I'd rather not Swoop. After the last time the Autobots left, a lot of really bad things happened. But we gotta get Cybertron back so you guys have a home to go back to."

Mirage walked out of the rec room and picked up his pace to a jog, heading for the security briefing room.

----------
Security Briefing Room, Fort Max:
Prowl nodded to Optimus.
"I'll be there shortly Sir."

It took him an extra few seconds to figure out what squid Blaster was referring to. Then Prowl tested the encryption tags, and once satisfied, he replied to Blaster and Skyfire.

"Blaster, when we reach the Moon, remain in the Crow's Nest. You will be assisting in taking out something far more destructive and dangerous than Quintessons, should you and your team accept. The Decepticons have created a smaller tool that functions similarly to Unicron. It is called a War World. It is the intention of command to utilize an opening, in which to sneak an infiltration unit within. The unit must pentrate to the control core of the war world, nullify its internal defenses and set explosives. Then they must withdraw within a very small time window. It is my expectation that Mirage will be able to carry yourself and the cassettes aboard. Your jamming techniques would serve to kill the defenses while he sets the explosives. The cassettes will provide an extra measure of guard. As you withdraw, Skyfire, if you accept, you will be lingering behind the other forces going for ground assault. With your speed, you're the one most capable of retrieving the penetration unit and distancing the team from the explosion that will occur afterward.
There will be no other opportunity that we can foresee to destroy this mechanization, and it will be needed to open the defenses of Cybertron. Therefore, our timing must be exact. It is extremely dangerous. The detonation and escape time window is very limited. The chance of running into a Decepticon guard could swing that balance against escape, and the creation must be destroyed. Additionally, the size and velocity of the explosion when it does result gives way to a lot of destruction power from the debris. These are factors which may result in termination of the individuals involved. If you do not wish to take part, it is understandable and will not be held against you. The ground forces will also need as many individuals as possible, and air support is invaluable."

Aero Blade
2006-09-22, 12:44 PM
Ratchet wouldn't recieve a response from Aero, he was too busy keeping a fearful watch on where the medic was, and slowly inching away hopefully to escape...

So far, no-one had tried to stop him yet, and though Aero found it a tad strange, it was an apportunity he was taking none the less. He just had to get himself to a good enough possition before he'd be able to bolt...

Dogfight smiled excitedly and grabbed the flamethrower. He grinned at Guzzle like a human child with a new toy and headed towards the line of fire.

In front of him, a pair of scorched decepti-dummies where standing. Despite all the damage inflicted by Guzzle's last try, the decepti-dummies faces were still clearly recognizables.

" Ha. Wildrider and Dragstrip. Nice touch. "

Chuckling, he aimed the flammer and pressed the trigger. A yellow-orange tongue of fire engulfed the practice dummies, melting them and causing a thick cloud of black smoke.

" Hahahaha!!! " laughed Dogfight frantic, passing the flammer again to Guzzle. " Incredible! What do you think we could scorch now? " asked the triggerbot eagerly.

Ratchet stopped halfway to the door and looked back at Roadbuster and Aero Blade. He was aware of nervous patients, but those that had volunteered for the Autobot special detail had been carefully screened and selected to be cooperative and accept standard upkeep. The unexpected and reluctant behavior frustrated him.

With one hand curled in a backwards fist on his waist, he pushed open the door.

"Well, either come or not. I have other patients that need to be attended to."

Finally repaired, Trailbreaker regained consciousness again in the CR chamber. The big black autobot frowned slightly as he recalled what had happened, and then folded his arms.

I ought to just stay in here. Causes a lot less work for everybody and a lot less damage for them too.

Skyfire paused a long time before answering. The thought was daunting - he had had a hard enough time adapting to the life of a warrior, but an infiltrator? His big awkward self? There were so many ways it could go wrong, and he dreaded the thought of the impending failure being all his fault. Nevertheless, he was never one to turn down a mission; the thought of failure was much less daunting than that of disappointing a senior officer.

"Count me in, Prowl. We'll take that thing down."

Jazz grinned at Gripper and made a note to have a chat with this one (he liked helping newcomers get oriented) before turning to Tracer at hearing his name.

"White Russian, eh? Good call. That's one a' my favorite Earthen drinks."

Jazz leaned in at the bardroid and instructed it slowly on how to mix the drink.

"Shot a' vodka, shot a' Kahlua, dash a' milk on top. Ah - make it soy. Reg'lar gonna be spoiled by now."

The bardroid buzzed a moment and began assembling the cocktail in an Autobot-sized tumbler, but it stopped in a recursive loop trying to discern how to dash milk. Jazz waved a hand at the droid disapprovingly.

"Nah nah nah. Gimme those and a Micromaster shooter."

The droid did as told, and with the expertise of a seasoned bartender, Jazz had the drink mixed in a flash. He slid the canister down to Tracer and returned the bottles to the bardroid.

"Hope ya like. It's been a while since I played barmaid."

Crosscut finished his fuel recharge and, slowly, stepped towards his room viewpoint. Watching the clouds and the aproaching stars, Crosscut's mind expanded and started to meditate about possibilites.

" Truce ", he thought. " A truce between the Decepticons and ourselves. Temporary, of course, but a truce anyway. "

Truce, the diplomat's dream. With a sigh, Crosscut waved at Clench - his bike drone stationed in a room's corner- and stepped off the room. He walked the corridor towards the bridge, with hope to find a commander. Growing impatient, he raised his comlink.

" Prowl, here Crosscut. As the Autobot oficial Ambassador, if I can help in any way in the truce affair, count on me. I'm going to the bridge for if I am needed. "

The Aerialbots where seated in a separate table, but the global good mood filling the room cheered up the flyers to interactuate with his fellow Autobots comrades.

Fireflight, fascinated by Lightspeed's possible race, aproached the Motorvator's table. The Aerialbot leader followed Fireflight, but aproached to Jazz instead of Lightspeed.

" Good to see you online, Jazz. Any trouble with your last mission? " Silverbolt asked politely when Jazz finished his coktail.

For his part, Skydive stayed on his chair reading a book about human WWII plane schematics.

" Hawker Hurricane... cool! " was thinking the strategist.

Air Raid, after getting tired of listening Slingosht's boasts, left his chair and headed towards the rec area exit with a pensive look on his optics.

" Dirge, do you copy? " asked Air Raid through his commlink.

And finally, poor Slingshot, hated by all of his comrades, remained in the table trying to torturate an absent Skydive.

The door to the CR Chamber buzzed and slid open, steam pouring from the entrance. Punch's optics blink as he comes back online , he stumbles from the chamber and walks through the medbay and out in to the halls. He walks bewildered through the innards of Fortress Maximus, Autobots he had never seen before walking part him. He made up his mind, the first 'Bot he found that he recognised he would approach, alot had changed, he felt.

Rec Room, Fort Max

He entered the Rec Room, there he saw half a dozen 'Bots he recognised and thought 'Time for some answers'

"Music Pause, Autobot Approval Punch designation 3321"

With that the music playing in the main room paused, he knew only a small number of those present would care the music had stopped, but most would notice it.

A number of those present turned and looked.

"I feel like I've been out so long my servos are rusting, the identity of half of my fellow Autobots are a mystery to me, I have never encountered them, and I am adament I saw a Decepticon, what... Is going on here?"

Medbay, Fort Max

Aero Blade was focused mostly on Ratchet's movements, so he had little spared towards Roadbuster's activities, and was consequently siezed before he could do anything to prevent it.

"No! Let go!" Aero protested. He planted his feet on the ground, which just skidded uselessly against the force of the larger bot, but it did create quite a bit of noise as he did his best to anchor himself. The closer he got to Ratchet, though, the more frightened he became.


Dirge's Quarters, Fort Max

The seeker had just been content for now to mill about his room, finding ways to pass time while pondering when it would be safe for him to go out again. He didn't want another run-in with the crazed technobot, but since the city bot had taken off, he knew it wouldn't be forever before there was another battle, and he needed to get prepared...

Dirge had been lying on his back on the rest platform in is quarters, staring up at the ceiling when the transmittion came through. He sat up, turning on his com to reply to Air Raid. "Dirge here, I copy."

The doors to med bay opened, and a group of heavy-loaded Technobots entered. Afterburner and Strafe, in robot form, their hands full of small parts and details, led the advance; Lightspeed and Nosecone were beside them in vehicle forms, carrying the larger and heavier parts. Those were the details for the reformat of Jetwave, of course, which were brought here from Engineering section.

"Ah, here we are with the parts, Wheeljack", - Scattershot commented to Autobot chief engineer.

Afterburner was making his way to the Stasis Bay where Wheeljack and Scattershot waited, other Technobots on the follow. Unfortunately, he stepped too close to struggling Aero Blade on his way. Frightened Autobot's hand pushed him rather hard, and several items of Technobot's cargo fell to the floor.

Afterburner exploded... literally.

"Look what you've done, you rustbucket fool! Can't you see where you're..."

"Enough, Afterburner!" - Scattershot snapped.

"But captain, look..."

"That's not the time nor the matter! Here, let me gather these", - Scattershot approached and scooped up the fallen items. "Wheeljack is waiting for us, and Jetwave's reformat awaits; we must hurry."

Afterburner followed, but his facial expression was far from friendly.

"I'll get you later, you restless punk", - he whispered to Aero Blade, passing by.

Jazz trailed off when he noticed someone had abruptly cut off Seal's Kiss from a Rose, and he turned to see Punch standing not far from the bar. He knew he'd need to handle this before one of the more rowdy locals did - Punch was one of Jazz' men, and he had a tendency to be... unstable.

Punch gets up and looks around

Punch - But now my friends, I need to file a report alerting Prime to my return to active duty. I'll return shortly

Punch Turns to leave the Rec room as the bardroid arrives too late, and walks through the halls, finding a communal quarters that was empty. He entered the room and closed the door.

Punch - Computer initiate report transferrence to Prime, Optimus. Subject - Reactivation. Codename - Punch. Body - This is Punch alerting you to my completion of extensive repairs and subsequent reactivation, and return to active duty. Computer END, TRANSFER

He exits the room, slowly walking back towards the Rec Room, wondering how long he had been out. He entered the Rec Room again and walked towards an empty part of the bar, away from Jazz, Siren and Hosehead he once again calls for the bardroid, which arrives there quickly.

Punch - Bartender, get me an Electro-Magnetic Screwdriver

Bartender - But Sir, that drink is contraband, It would be wrong for me to serve you that drink.

Punch - Do I care if it is contraband? If there is any backlash to me requesting one I shall take full blame, you need not worry.

Bartender - If I must....

The bartender begins to scuttle off to make the drink

Punch - Oh and get me a glass of Energon, dont cut back on the static.

The bartender returned with the two drinks, Punch disposed of the EMS quickly, grabbing the glass of energon he walked back towards Jazz Siren and Hosehead as they continued sipping their drinks.

With his lust for fire partially calmed down, Dogfight returned the flammer to his friend.

Ratchet's manuver was right on the mark, but it would still however have little effect on the situation. The moment Aero Blade's systems registered an increase in foreign electric energy, his surge protections systems kicked in to protect him from what was possibly power surge from a repair job gone wrong. Aero was still jolted enough to feel the initial surge, but the effects were reduced almost none at all.

However, what it did do was startle the already frieghtened tech even further. He yanked his arm out of Ratchet's light grip, causing him to also shove Roadbuster who was still on his other side. With all that was going on, and the tech paniced to his limit, within a split second of the shove Aero clicked his visor over his optics and released a smokescreen, the concoction of chemicals and substances that it contained able to cause a disruptive, painful sensation to the optics when it came in contact.

Once the smokescreen was released, Aero immediately yanked away from Roadbuster lanced out an elbow strike at Ratchet almost reflexively against the medic trying to do anything to subdue Aero, then bolted away from both of them before the smokescreen cleared.
