Shuttlebay, Steelhaven

Pinpointer would have shrugged, if he wasn't wedged half-way inside an engine cowling.

"Not looking good," he told Fizzle. "When Backstreet told us this thing was wrecked, he wasn't kidding. Unless you've got a full drone crew to work on repairs, it's not going to be any good as anything other than an unpowered lifepod."

Bridge, Warworld

Astrotrain frowned as he saw another large silouette appear on the ship's sensors, but he quickly loosened up as the object's shape grew more distinct.

The admiral smiled.

"Clear Scorponok for landing," he told the nearest drone. "And have one of your units convey my greetings."

The drone nodded curtly and moved off.

Warworld: Medbay

There had been time to spare, and as per his design specifications, the expansive medbay had been constructed with a well-provided officers' section closed off from the remainder of the repair bay. Gigatron had retired there, knowing he would not be needed for some time. The downtime would do him good... The warm, dim chamber was quiet, its only occupant the Decepticon leader chest-deep in his energon pool. He puffed slowly and thoughtfully on an energon vaporator, allowing the liquid around him to seep into his circuits in due time.

" Umph... er thanks Pinpointer ", replied Fizzle. " Wonderfull, just wondefull! With the Warworld aproaching and without a shuttle in this big pile of junk! " thought Fizzle, hammering a nearby monitor.

" Backstreet " said the Sparkabot, opening a comm-link, " where's now the Warworld? "

Steelhaven Bridge

Backstreet sighed and left his Moon contemplations, stepping to the tactical station.

" Roger, Fizzle " he said, while looking at his sensor monitor. " The Warworld is aproaching fast, and for the look of things it seems an enemy citybot has docked inside ".

" Uh-oh " said Fizzle, looking again at the battlebridge weapons control.

Nightracer quietly sat in her seat, listening to the conversations going on around her.

Breakdown almost let out a sigh of relief.While he didn't want to get his hope up. So far, no one was looking at him and the Firestorm was moving. It also helped that the seat next to him was still empty .

" Glad I could help" Carnivac said to StarBlade. Then, Carnivac turned back to Gnaw and asked " Was there some reason you came down here or were you just lurking?"

As the pretender waited for an answer, he couldn't help but wonder if it was wise to let the sharkticon run around lose on WarWorld.

Warworld: Medbay

Gigatron emerged from his bath finally once his systems were properly charged, allowing the liquid to drip from his form while the pool drained and slowly refilled a fresh batch. Gigatron climbed out promptly and nodded down at Skystalker as he passed.

"Astrotrain will be your commander for this mission. He will inform you of your assignments when he deigns to brief you. Report to him after your maintenance is seen to."

Gigatron stepped past with no notion of finality. He had plenty to do. As he stepped through the enormous medbay doors into the corridors beyond, he stopped at a computer terminal to look up a particular Decepticon's frequency. Having found it, he raised his wrist-shield to his face and activated the communicator in it.

"Afterburner, this is Gigatron. I demand your presence post-haste. Meet me at the engine room in a breem."

Hatemonger watched as the Warworld neared.

"Hmm, someone must be asleep at the com." He grumbled tapping his hand on the chair he was sitting in as the hailed Warworld again.

"This is General Hatemonger bringing the Decepticon legions to Warworld. What docking bay should we use?" He asked his voice a bit sterner than it was the first time.

Tracer continued to stand around the bridge, just watching the information on the various screens and stations, waiting either for someone to give him orders or for some kind of incident to present itself that he could busy himself with. He never really did enjoy these long 'rest' periods, but at least it made the battles more memorable when they did occur...

"Of course. Citybots. This gets better and better."
And even if we win this war, the decepticons will still have the warworld back... who's to say they'll let us on Cybertron at all? Whats to stop them using that thing against us?!

Slicer stepped back, and surveyed his work.
The Tyrant looked amazing. The colours were vibrant, the Orage background contrasting the Black and yellow speed lines, and the Wolf decals practically breathed. He still wanted to find the 5 mile spoiler for the rear, and felt he should put some oak panelling in the main cock pit... but for the most, he was satisfied.
He saw the Firestorm and the Annihlator land, and actually felt something strange... He'd thought Fresh canvass as they landed.
"Weirdwolf, how'd you like your ship now?"

Warworld: Bridge

Having been distracted by the exchange between Deathsaurus and Leozak, Spinister hadn't noticed the continual beeping of the transmission beacon. But finally it grabbed his attention, and he reached in to answer it in the absence of anyone else volunteering.

"Hatemonger, this is Warworld Control. Copy. Board at docks 151 and 152."

Having satisfactorily finished his tour with Afterburner, Gigatron returned to the bridge and assumed the command chair Astrotrain had vacated. He had no orders to give yet, but he was busy assimilating his surroundings and the readings.

Hatemonger nodded as Spinster sent him landing coordinates and began to guide the shuttle to dock 151 as he quickly beamed the data to Bludgeon to dock the Firestorm at dock 152.

He watched as the massive base closed in opening it's doors the Annilator travelled down a long cooridor setting in a landing bay.

"Welcome to Warworld." Hatemonger said to the Decepticons on board as the shuttles bay doors opened and the legion of drones that were in the Nemesis exited and were already starting to download data to figure out their tasks at the new Decepticon and for now Autobot base.

Hatemonger stood up and waited for everyone else to leave scanning a skimatic of the base he found a suitable office to set himself in for the time being and waited for everyone to leave before he would make his exit.

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

"Sweet!" Rampage jumped out of his seat and took off nearly stepping on a few drones in the process.

"Guess he's glad to be here." Headstrong shrugged looking over to Divebomb and Tantrum as Razorclaw sandered behind the group.

"Who can blame him soon we will be slagging Quints." Tantrum smiled as the Predacons exited the shuttle and looked around the massive bay their first look at the inside of Warworld.

Cryotek stood up stretched and looked for a suitable science lab on the Warworld to set up shop himself. He smiled evilly as he saw the lab he wanted and began a beeline for it.

On the Firestorm

Nightracer waited for the shuttle she was on to land. While a part of her found the thought of being at WarWorld exciting, Nightracer was also annoyed. She was more then certain that a part of that annoyence was from Sunstreaker managing to escape. Nightracer hoped that exterminating Cybertron's infestation would help her work out her leftover frustrations. At least until this latest truce with the Autobots was over and she was free to put a bullet into Sunstreaker's lasercore.

" For the last time, Dead End. We ain't gonna die" Wildrider said " We'll probably be back on Earth having a demolition derby before ya know it."

" Surviving wars are not something one can be certain about" Dead End said " Death on the other hand, is."

" Do you two have to have this conbersatishion...confersattion...talk every time we go into battle" Breakdown said.

" The word is conversation" Dead End said calmly.

" And the answer is slaggin' yes" Wildrider said, slightly raising his voice at the last word.

The Constructors waited patiently for the landing procedures to finish as well. Excavator and Stonecruncher stared out the windows they were seated at, the former admiring the majestic stars, the latter bedazzled by how slaggin' big this thing was. It looked smaller in pictures...

Warworld: Dock 151

With the flight finished, Reflector dutifully unstrapped their seat maglocks, stood, and joined the column of Decepticons bustling off the shuttle. Once inside the great dock, they followed the stream of others to the large elevator that would take them into the battlestation proper.

Warworld: Bridge

Spinister watched the docking report come in. He didn't much care for these sorts of tasks, but it would be irresponsible not to follow through.

"The Annihilator has landed at dock 151, sir," he reported to Gigatron with his usual grim flatness. "Drones have visual confirmation; Decepticons are disembarking and disseminating into the Warworld. Firestorm is still en route to dock 152. Scorponok has also successfully landed at dock 308 and is conducting maintenance."

Gigatron nodded solemnly. All were accounted for... except Metrotitan. Damn the Autobots.

If not for that foul incident, Gigatron pondered, perhaps we could manage this endeavour ourselves. No matter.

"Very good," Gigatron answered. "Tracer, do you read any sign of the Autobot transports? I grow impatient."

Nautilus laid his head back, and sighed dramatically.
"Guys and girl, unless one of you has to stay as a Guard, then I suggest you make tracks back to the main assembly areas. I wouldn't wan't you to be late for the party, even if I have to miss it."
Nautilus waited for any reaction.

Roughstuff and Flattop joined the procession off the ship; flattop was looking particularly tense, wondering how his transport had fared on the journey.

Fizzles patience slowly faded.
"Backstreet, I don't suppose we have an ETA on the rest of the Autobots? I know about the Truce, but the planet sized engine of death being stocked with multiple Citbots and shuttles full of troops is giving me cause for concern."
The fact that these feelings contradicted his earlier statements was lost on Fizzle. the remains of the Rat beetle fell to the ground without grace.

" Uh? An ETA? " replied Backstreet to Fizzle. " Well, Prowl said in his last transmision that the rendezvous time would be 1:30 earth hours, more or less. I guess they are suffering some delays with the citybots take-offs. Anyway, our sensors are still in pretty bad shape, so I can't read any aproaching friendly signature yet. "

Hatemonger was walking to his new officespace. He opened the double doors and peered in. The space had a great view of outer space from the window as he sat down at his chair on his desk and brought up a holo-vid of some of the footage from Cybertron.

"Lord Gigatron, as I am sure you realise the Decepticon shuttles have arrived. I am also beaming to you data from the Cybertron recorder to examine yourself. I know Shockwave and Cryotek were attempting to decide a suitable strategy for the plan of attack on Cybertron." He explained.

"I have found a suitable office space for myself to plan and and examine data. If you need me just call." He said looking over data trying to get numbers on Quint troop numbers and technology.

Gigatron frowned at Tracer's assessment. Dawdling imbeciles. He wondered if they were worth the wait...

"If they do not appear on a long-range sweep, find some way to hail them. I tire of their insolence."

It was then that Hatemonger's transmission came in, lightening the commander's mood some.

"Acknowledged, Hatemonger. Scan the data for pertinent information and assemble an executive report. We will have a command strategy meeting in the war room once we have reached hyperspeed."

Gigatron spun his elevated command chair at the sound of a familiar voice, and he found himself looking down on Leozak. His optics narrowed slightly. He still didn't trust this one much, but his performance coupled with the fact he'd bothered to return with Trypticon put that aside for now.

"Indeed. Tell me, how is my city?"

At the front consoles, Spinister finished following through with his sweep before acknowledging Deathsaurus.

"Firestorm has landed successfully at dock 152, sir. Drones have visual confirmation of Decepticons disembarking."

With that finality settled, Spinister turned from his station and stared at Deathsaurus neutrally. His optics were locked on the other's, and he seemd to harbor no remorse in not shaking the other-dimensional's hand.

"We are warriors," he answered coldly. "For us, nothing is permanent. We will meet again on the front lines."

From Spinister's shoulder, Hairsplitter gave his master a peculiar look. One who knew Spinister could tell that was a surprisingly emotional speech in spite of its aesthetic blankness.

"Recieved" replied Shockwave. As he turned a corner, he saw a sight to behold. Leaning against a wall, nonchalantly, was Cyclonus.

"Greetings, Shockwave. I trust your flight was...pleasant for you"

"The flight was adequate. As you nkow doubt need not reminding, I find nothing pleasing. Now, what are you doing here? This is the way to the bridge. According to the latest duty roster, you are...nothing but a common soldier."

"Ah, but when one traverses space, one is always needed to lend a hand to those less fortunate than ones' self. Take yourself for instance. Unlike myself, you cannot travel vast interstellar distances. I'm sure you catch my drift"

"I may be emotionless Cyclonus, but I am not an idiot. But if you think you are getting on the bridge with me, you are mistaken. Now, you have delayed me enough."

"I dont think that I have. Seeing as our glorious leader is returned to us, I must make myself...available. The only place I can do that, is on the bridge of this might vessel. Now, please. After you."

"I think not. After you, Cyclonus."

After taking enough time to get a map from a computer, the Stunticons left the hanger. While the Stunticons walked down the hallways, they continued to look around WarWorld.

" Ya think there's any truth to the rumors of Starscream possesin' this place" Wildrider asked Deadend.

" You know as well as I do" Deadend said with out looking over at Wildrider " That even of the rumors were true, nothing last forever."

" E-e-expecaully for S-s-starscream" Breakdown said as he nervously looked around him. The paranoid Stunticon had heard the same rumors and couldn't help but wonder if WarWorld had sensors, cameras or some other way to monitor the hallways.

Snapdragon heard all the disturbances in the shuttle bays, and decided he'd stood guard long enough in the bowels of the ship that he could venture a shielded hello to some fellow 'cons.

Wildrider had taken over as bartender and after serving the other Stunticon's drinks, was playing 'chemist'. Deadend was making sure Wildrider didn't mix the more dangerous liquids and energon together.

Breakdown sat at a table in a shaded corner, drinking his plain energon and reading from a data pad.

Motormaster was cleaning his gun. His energon was dark purple in color and probably had a bit of gas in it.

Having been dared to drink what ever Wildrider came up with, Dragstrip sat at the bar.

Snapdragon ambled ahead, unaware and/or uncaring of the trail of grease pooling behind his tail everytime he stopped to sniff the stale warworld air.

at least the fresh air of the newly arriving decepticons could open his olfactory sensors a bit.

there was always the promise of autobots suffering "accidents" if they were to wander a little too far......

Snapdragon licked his lips and pondered the future, constantly scooting his substantial bulk forward through the massive death-bringer

Warworld: Corridors

Stonecruncher, Sledge, and Excavator ambled along the way to try to locate the mess hall they hoped someone had bothered to include in the fortress plans. The former two were engaged in raucous conversation, trading ill-spirited jokes and stories of conquest or especially mean pranks; Excavator was trailing quietly, shrugging off Stonecruncher's attempts to get him into the discussion. Rounding a corner, they found themselves walking toward Snapdragon, and Stonecruncher shot the Headmaster a nod.

"Howya doin', mech?"

Warworld: Dock 152

Hammer listened to Roughstuff with a grin behind his faceplate. As much as he tended to follow the rules and try to fit into normal Decepticon society, he was a Micromaster, and there was a certain bond they all shared. He knew he'd be in trouble if anyone found out about the transactions he was engaging in, but he trusted Roughstuff in a cousinly way. With a glance around the emptying hangar, Hammer pulled a datacube from his bed.

"These are some blueprints I've been working on." Hammer activated the datacube, bringing up a hologram of three transport trucks that separated and transformed into mobile artillery stations for each member of his crew. "Command won't sanction me to build them, but I don't care. We're combat engineers. We gotta be able to work on the battlefield, and I need these to keep my Micros safe."

Hammer tapped a button on the datacube. It ejected a circuitcard, which Hammer handed over to Roughstuff while pocketing the cube.

"Bill of materials. It's nothing too extravagant. So what's your price?"

Snapdragon looked down at the small yellow and orange members of the constructor squad, with Excavator trailing behind.

He stood for a moment, towering over them, before replying.

"alright, considering. I heard all the ruckus and wanted to make myself available, ya know? In case they are gonna need flankers, cause I don't think you guys are gonna be much good out in space, are ya?

"Ragnorok. I would not have anticipated your presence here. Much has changed since last we have met. Where have you been?"

Lazerbeak had located a room suitable for their purpose. It was several levels above the spaceport in which they had landed, however it was ideally placed. He transmitted a message back to the master...

Soundwave allowed himself a wry smile. Ragnarok was an old sparing partner and one of a very small group of Decepticons that Soundwave entrusted with both his confidence and his security.

"I have been inactive in an offline state for a long-time..." He paused, releasing that Ragnarok would not even bat an eyelid if he knew of Soundwave's failed scheme to take control. "...difficulties with figures of central command..." he would leave it at that.

"These problems with the Quintessons are troublesome, would you not say...?"

In the course of this conversation, Soundwave was also receiving a transmission of confirmation from Lazerbeak.

Striding into the room, Sixshot glanced around the room, taking in each of the Stunticons, then he shrugged and moved to make his own drink, not trusting the ones that Wildrider was making.

Wildrider turned his attention from his 'experiments' to Sixshot and noticed the sixchanger was making his own drink. Wildrider waved at the energon (and chemicals) he hadn't put in the questionable drinks before him. They were located on the side of the bar Sixshot wasn't on. As he did the wave, Wildrider asked " Do ya have every thing ya need over there?"

Deadend knew that Sixshot was standing right next to him, but he descided to keep watch on Wildrider's 'experiments'. He was sure that no Transformer would survive drinking some of them.

Breakdown looked up from his datapad; but seeing that Sixshot wasn't staring at him, returned to his reading.

Motormaster didn't look up from where he was cleaning his weapons and Dragstrip was sizing Sixshot up.

Roughstuff looked over the order, and made some calculating expressions.
"You're a first time customer Hammer, so I wantto start off our business well, do you the standard first time discount. Like I said though, we're on the warworld: securitys high, and my contacts don't like deathstars much.
We're talking at least 20'000 shanix worth of goods here, situation as it is. If you're good for it, I'll make the orders and get this under way. If you try to stiff me, we don't do business again, not for snax or energon chips."
Rough stuff held the chip in his palm subtlely, but so Hammer could take it back if he wanted to.
"Are we in business?"

Across the Hangar...

Flattop looked up at Sunstorm and shrugged his shoulders.
"Yes, he is. Still, at least it keeps him busy. You wanna hit the bar?"

The Trans-warp drive spat them out a little too close to Titan for anyone's comfort. Normally, it wouldn't be an issue, but two of the five secondary thrusters were destroyed, as well as over half of the manuvering thrusters, so it became a massive feat to safely move the massive vessal out of the way of Saturn's largest moon.

Once that was over, they set a clear course for the third planet's only natural sattlite: Luna.

Fort Max Rec Room

Punch takes the offer of a drink from Silverbolt. He sits there, sipping the drink, thinking about what had been said. Cybertron had been invaded, the Autobots and Decepticoncs cast out, forced to make a truce in the vain hope of recovering their home world. Prime was insane to enter in to a truce, he truly believed that... But he also believed his leader had thought of eery eventuality.

He looks to Jazz and Silverbolt "So where are we going now? Are we on indefinite leave or do we have orders?"

Corridors beyond the mess hall

Snaptrap & Overbite were lucky, at least they would be if they believed in such trivial notions. They were the only two of the six Seacons to make it off Cybertron before the Quintessons took over. They'd spent their time in Earth's oceans repairing themselves & being solely responsible for several un-explained holiday photographs appearing in American newspapers.

"I hope Gigatron knows what he's doing," began Overbite.

"I just want to know when we get back to Cybertron & start tearing apart those insipid Quintessons," Snaptrap replied.

"Not nearly soon enough for my tastes" and the sooner to get away from you. Overbite had spent too long for his own liking with Snaptrap- notorious for having low tolerance levels, even of his own squad.

They continued down the hallway until Snaptrap & Overbite both barrelled through the doors and into the mess hall. They were caught up in conversation on the best way to strip an Autobot's carcass and leave the least scrap- just to annoy Swindle -when Overbite caught sight of Dragstrip.

"I don't recommend it pal, Sixshot's got a meaner temper than our leader," he hissed as he walked past.

"Though he's still not mech enough to prove it" SnapTrap added as he walked into Dragstrip with his shoulder.

"So, Flattop, what kind of drink do you like?"

Deathsaurus stepped through the doors into the bar, narrowly avoided a collision with Sunstorm as he did so.
"Hey! Watch where you're going! Sunstorm? Is that you?

"Yes, I am Sunstorm. But you'll have to tell me which Deathsaurus you are for me to decide if I know you."

"I'm the one that you helped battle against Star Sabre."

"Deathsaurus! Friend, so good to see you again! How did you get here?"

The Predacons wandered into the mess area of Warworld and found seating. Razorclaw transformed into lion mode and clawed his way up a wall finding a seat in one of the rafters avoid.

"OK that was odd." Headstrong grunted of his leader's places of relaxation.

"Never know he could be getting ready to pounce on you." Divebomb snipped.

"No, no he wouldn't do that... I hope." Headstrong said as Tantrum and Rampage brought over energon drinks for the group.

After hearing Overbite's warning, Dragstrip looked over at the Seacon with the transformer version of a raised eyebrow. The look soon narrowed and focused on the Seacon who just ran into Dragstrip's shoulder.

" Watch where your going" Dragstrip said to Snaptrap.

Motormaster finished cleaning his gun and put it back into subspace. The Stunticon leader watched the scene in front of him as he took a sip of his drink.

Not getting an answer out of Sixshot, Wildrider put some of his drink creations in front of Dragstrip. Then Wildrider looked at the two Seacons and asked " Ya want somethin' from the bar?"

" Giving warnings tend to be a waste of time when it comes Dragstrip" said Deadend to the two Seacons.

Inside Fort Max - Stasis Bay 12, near Medbay:

Technobots were busy helping Wheeljack, who was now inside the stasis pod completely and from time to time shoved a hand out to grasp a detail or some tool. The insides of the stasis pod containing Jetwave's body were dimmed, and the Technobots, though curious, couldn't get a peak of what was emerging from under Wheeljack's capable hands.

Though being busy, Technobots overheared the commotion in the ajacent Med Bay nevertheless. Shouts, noises of metal hitting metal and hissing of some gas being released from its confinement took their attention.

"I'll look and see!" - and, before Scattershot could react, Afterburner was through the doors to medbay. The Technobots commander could only order to Nosecone:

"Follow him... and restrain if needed."

"You bet on it", - the drill-wielder grumbled, and followed Afterburner into medbay.


Inside, they were astounded to see the cloud of dense smoke obscuring more than half of the room.

"What happened? Is that some kind of Smokescreen's sick joke?" - Afterburner asked, irritated.

"Don't think so", - Nosecone grumbled, moving carefully trough the smoke cloud to its center, hands outstretched. "Perhaps he's not the only one that likes sick jokes..."

"What do you mean by that?" - Afterburner enquired, offended by what he saw as an attack in his address. "I... oops!" Taking a step after Nosecone into the cloud, Afterburner connected with someone and grabbed him - more instinctively, than consciously. "I've got somebody!" - the Technobot exclaimed.

Inside Metroplex - Empty Shuttle bay:

-OOC: first action inside Metroplex moves to Moon Tread!

Appaled by Red Alert's lack of reaction, Kickback decided he'd got too far and tried to sweeten the deal:

"All right, I understand the price was a bit too big just for the three of us. Let's say we receive first box of energon as a pre-payment and the second one right after we help your cause in the battle for Cybertron. What about it?"

This probably means we'll never get the second box - but half of the profit is better than nothing, I'd say - he reflected.

Meanwhile, Bombshell and Shrapnel were exchanging worried glances with Six Gun.

"This Autobot looks-looks at me. He's not-not friendly!" - Shrapnel voiced the obvious. "Shrapnel's hungry-hungry, want energon now-now! Where is energon boxes-boxes?"

"You better wait for them... Or I'll make you do that, implanting a control chip in your processor once again!" - Bombshell treatened. "Be quiet, and you'll get what you want." He sounded doubtful, though.

"Shrapnel is quiet-quiet, but where is what I want-want?" - the stupid Insecticon persisted...

The Omega Shuttle followed Metroplex up, and it was only a few moments before it's sensors locked onto the massive battleship in orbit near Luna. If Skyfall had human skin, it would be crawlling with goosebumps....

I don't like the looks of this. If this thing survives, they're going to turn it on the Autobots as soon as they can....

With that warm thought in his head, Skyfall looked for a landing bay.

"i'm picking up an unidentified blip in close proximity to Mars."

Aero Blade
2006-10-04, 11:39 PM
Aero Blade knew the smokescreen he'd release would last only a few precious seconds, it not being meant for anything more than quick escape, so he did not linger long on the hallways before he sought some kind of cover away from the main corridor. He wasn't sure where he had ducked into with his disorientation, but after nearly stumbling over what seemed to be a crate of sorts, he was able to guess he'd found a storage area of some kind. He could only hope they didn't come looking into this area, or thought that he had gone much further away from the medbay than he had.

Aero moved towards the back of the storage area, using the piles of boxes for stability as he moved, eventually heading to an area he was pretty sure wasn't in view of the door. He gave a sigh, leaning his back against something stable and letting himself slide down into a sitting possition on the floor, trying to catch his breath and calm down.

He didn't feel so good. Not from physical exhaustion, or the disorientation, but from his processor finally catching up with him about what happened. He'd actually lashed out at a medic... It was partly the medics fault for having scared him into doing that, but the unfamiliar medic couldn't have known about how Aero's systems were set up - he was probably trying to sedate him like all the others did, knocking Aero out before he got the chance to do anything - unfortunately, the medic had made a bad choice of method and put them both in a situation they'd rather have not been in...

Aero gave another sigh, closing his optics for a moment. Someone was going to find him eventually, and that medic would likely want to know why Aero had retaliated, and that would likely mean sharing some information he didn't want to, that which he'd only shared with a rare few. More over than that, he really didn't know what was going to happen, and that frightened him even more than the medic...

The smoke in the medbay was starting to dissipate...

"Don't fight - just hold him down", - Nosecone suggested to Afterburner. - "I'm coming to you."

"No need - it's Roadbuster", - Afterburner said, letting the 'bot go. "What's happened? Was it Smokescreen?"

Meanwhile, in the stasis bay 12 the three remaining Technobots were exchanging worried glances. For a while, Wheeljack - who was still inside stasis pod, busy repairing Jetwave - hadn't gave out any signs of his presence.

"Hey, Wheeljack! Is everything all right?"

No answer.

"Had you die in there?" - Strafe tried to joke, but got a reproachful glance from Lightspeed.

"Don't mess with him, guys. He'll say when it be ready. Don't you know it's rude to speak when somebody's busy with delicate work?"

"Well, if you say so..." - Scattershot wasn't convinced, but decided to take a step back from the pod.

Sizzle looked at the long range scanners available on his bridge and noted the approach of Autobot city bots.
Finally some support: of course, against the war world, we'd still be best off just not being here...
Sizzle continued to worry at the last of the upholstery on the chair as he plotted escape courses, defence tactics and battle plans should the decepticons truce be nothing but lies. All his proccesors could conclude was that being here was a bad idea in the event of betrayal.

Fort Max Armoury, Practice area:
Guzzle nearly leaped for joy at Dogfights suggestion.
"Heck yeah I'm up for that! I'll just refuel this thing: it makes for a great weapon, but it's sucking up flamer fuel like it's going out of fasholn. Damn deceps can't make a weapon with longevity, but they can do great explosions!"

Sizzle leaned back and enjoyed his beverage.
"Hey Jazz: if this race the loud mouth is talking about ever happens," he said indicating Lighspeed, "You want in?"

Tyrant Shuttle Bay, in the Warworld hangar bay...
Slicer was starting work on the first of the complimentary shuttles in the Tyrant: he had opted for complimentary themed colour schemes: with the 70's colours on the exterior, he decided to do an electric disco them on the first shuttle, and on the second an Emo style paint job with full moon and storms to compliment the wolf.
I hope everyone appreciates this hard work.

Alongside Metroplex...
Cosmos was flying alongside the massive citybot in his spaceship form, on the opposit side from Skyfalls Omega Shuttle; he too had noticed the Warworld, and was fighting his natural urges to turn around and get away from the hundred foot high Decepticon Symbol on the front of the battle station.

"Warning? Dragstrip should think himself lucky 'The Butcher' didn't extinguish his spark on peace." Overbite walked to the table that Snaptrap placed himself at.

Since the Seacons hadn't answered Wildrider's question, he went and got Flattop's drink. The insane Stunticon then handed it over to Flattop and turned to look over at the Seacons. If there was going to be a fight, it would be fun to watch or join in.

Deadend wondered why the Seacons thought that the other Stunticons gave a slag about what happened to Dragstrip or what their leader's reputation was.

Breakdown hadn't turned his attention from his book. Fighting for the amusement of other beings wasn't his thing.

Dragstrip gave Snaptrap a look that said the Seacon could try to carry out his threat, then smirked when Overbite mistaken them for the Constructicons ( their the gestalt with six members, the Stunticons have five).

" And here I could have swore some one mentioned that our leader had a terrible temper" Dragstrip said to no one in particular " it's really sad when people seem to forget part of their own advice."

Feeling mostly amuse by that event, Motormaster put his drink down. Then brought his sword out of subspace and started to clean it. If the other gestalt wanted a fight with the Stunticons, they would have to do better then to threaten Dragstrip.

"Aero? Who's Aero?" - Afterburner said, puzzled.

"The 'bot who knocked some stuff from your hands, you dumb", - Nosecone answered.

"Oh! That Aero! Well, I can teach him a lesson or two about how to treat fellow Autobots... and how to keep our air clean, too! Wait, Stepper - can I go with you and teach that punk some manners?"

"You're not going anywhere", - Nosecone interrupted.

"What?"

"At least, you're not going anywhere alone. Don't you remember the incident with Dirge? Believe me, others will remember it too..."

"But what can be done about that? And anyway, what does it matter now?"

"It does matter. I'd ask Ratchet if he needs help securing the patient... and somehow I feel he got some enforcer 'bots more suited for that mission. Like, say, Dinos."

"Oh, Dinos..." - Afterburner mused, remembering how they were guarded by Snarl. Anyway, he decided to ask Ratchet - perhaps the medic would like him to act as enforcer for a while...

"Hey, Ratchet - are you OK? Do you need help getting that buster back here, or what?"


Meanwhile, in the Stasis Bay 12, the three remaining Technobots were taking turns looking inside the pod.

"Whoa! Great job, Wheeljack!" - Scattershot commented, taking a step back and letting Strafe get a peek. Jetwave's body, once a twisted heap of metal, was now stripped of its damaged parts and encased in a mesh of durasteel framework.

"Am I seeing things or did he got bigger?" - Strafe asked, puzzled.

"Of course he did! I told you - his size will increase, giving him more internal room! And the launchers shall be remodelled, to act as mortars too, since he's lost his primary guns... Hadn't you seen the blueprints?" - Lightspeed asked angrily.

"Not all of us are such suited with console as you are" - Strafe answered, offended. "Better take the broken parts out, make more room for Wheeljack", - and he took a mangled piece of armor and passed it to Scattershot. They formed a line which transferred the broken parts from inside the pod to the corner of the room.

It was only recently a sense of time had returned to him; he had spent so long forced into a cell in his own subconscious by the psychic intruders, he had lost a sense of nearly everything. Now, he was back; he was in control, his pride and need for vengence and power a force to be reckoned with.
Hah. Even I cannot fool myself with thoughts such as these. He stood, and raised a clenched fist to his chest.
Once, maybe, i was someone to respect; no, some one to FEAR. Now, I rot in this cell, waiting for judgement.
His hand fell to his side, limp and lifeless.
This must change; it has to, I AM meant for greater things than to dwell in a fetid corner, waiting for my lessers and extradimensional warlords to decide my fate. I AM THE MASTER OF MY FATE. NO ONE ELSE.
Thunderwing raised his head, his expression of despair replaced with desperate rage.
Once I get out of here, it'll all be as it should be. And any who stand in my way...

"Starlight, you and the boys better come out with me on this one."

Deathsaurus almost hugged Sunstorm, "How have you been?"

"I've been good."

"That's good. Now let me get you and your friend a drink, Sunstorm.", Deathsaurus said, turning to Wildrider, "I'll have charmagnum, and Sunstorm?"

"I'll have a shot, straight energon."

Sunstorm turned to Flattop, "A few years ago, I ended up in Deathsaurus' dimension, and helped him in a war with Star Sabre. Somehow, they got me back here, and I ended up on the Nemesis shortly before I crashed and we met."

" Ain't got a clue what their malfunction is" Wildrider said to Flattop with almost a shrug. Wildrider didn't remember a past fight with the Seacons. He wasn't even quite sure when the last time both gestalt teams had been in the same bar together.

When Wildrider heard Deathsaurus' orders, he stopped his seacon line of thought and went to get the drinks. A while later, the Stunticon handed Deathsaurus the charmagnum and Sunstorm his shot of straight energon.

"Be cautious." Ratchet grumbled to the others as he washed his optics. "And he's not coming back in here. I'm not putting the medbay in danger with him again. Find out how he'd like the repairs to be done, by who, and where. If I go to him, he'll panic - again."

A dull, barely-noticeable tremor ran through the floor signalling the landing of the citybot on the moon.

Max: Storage room
Blitzwing had been sitting in jet mode while his repair systems continued to work. Inside the storage room had been quiet, until the strange behavior of the Technobots caused a disturbance. Then it had been remotely quiet for a while until a terrorized autobot ran in and propped himself up against the triple-changer's cargo door.

Blitzwing found the arrival somewhat amusing. He could tell the autobot had come from medbay's direction, so he took a bit of liberty at the medic's expense.

"Way the bots around here act, the medical staff must be worse than the Constructicons."

Aero Blade had been quietly trying to get a hold of himself and calm down when the unexpected and unfamiliar voice came out of no-where, startling the tech and causing him to jump. Consequently, with his disorientation and the area that he was in, Aero wound up taking a tumble into some crates where he layed for a moment, almost exasperated before he finally began to get up again and look around. He didn't immediately see anyone in the storage area, but if they were hiding he'd have not been able to easily find them. Nervoulsy he looked around to area, seemingly not able to recognize Blitzwing's unmoving form as the source of the voice.

Hearing that Ratchet wants the patient to be examined and worked with (rather than brought to the justice harshly), Afterburner quickly decided he didn't wanted the job.

"Let Stepper take care of it" - he told Ratchet, going back to the Stasis Bay 12. "I'm not sure if I'd be gentle with that Aero - after what he'd done".

Nosecone followed, wordlessly thanking Primus that he hadn't to restrict the hothead teammate from doing something he'd regret later... or, rather, they all would regret later.

"No new guns, please", - Lightspeed answered. "I'm not sure how he'll react when he gets to know I've reformatted his launchers to be universal - I mean, to act as mortars too. He told us once that he has no need for energy weapons... Let him be content with what he'd got."

The shuttle bay as in ruins. Dents, scorch marks, parts and spare parts. Sideswipe lay slumped against a wall Sunstreaker had just introduced him too and tried to get up, one arm looking like it was ready to fall off. "Th-th-th-this izzzn't over." He got out from the damanged vocalizer. Sideswipe moved from the wall and collasped forward. His energy spent.

The bottom of a particular wide and long street showed some hustle, as if some cars were aproaching at full speed clashing and taking away the stopped cars.

A big, black and grey truck was messing through the traffic jamm, shortly followed by three nice-looking cars and even a yellow six-wheleed racing car. They all wore decepticon badges on their alt modes.

"They're about to search for that punk, he's escaped, you know... But what Nose-fellow here said is true, they say it's their own Wreckers' business and we're not wanted in it."

If Jetwave needs some more weaponry - hardly any, in my opinion - he'd ask for that himself later, Strafe! And you, Lightspeed - you had forgotten completely about his swords! He'd lost 'em too, and now they must be replaced... And, I'm afraid, the replacement isn't in the blueprints.

"Three premiums," Sledge ordered the bartender, sitting next to Stonecruncher.

Warworld: Dock 152

Hammer's interest was thoroughly raised by Wingspan's revelation, and it was evident on his usually hard-to-read face. Perfecting such a technology would earn him terrific notoriety in the technical circles, and if he could combine it with the machine that had revived Octane, he may be personally responsible for implementing the invulnerability of Decepticon warriors! This opportunity was too much to pass up.

"Can you show me these papers?" Hammer asked the Clone with restrained giddiness.

Warworld: Bridge

Gigatron tapped his armrest one last time.

"About time," Gigatron answered Tracer. "Track their movements, and prepare for boarding procedures should they approach the Warworld."

At that, the Decepticon leader spun his chair and looked down on the newcomers.

"If not for the Autobots' dawdling," Gigatron answered Shockwave. "But no matter. You are required to begin tactical analysis of Autobot and Decepticon combined offensive abilities and to synthesize battle plans for the invasion. Consult Hatemonger to learn the Cybertron probe's information of Quintesson defensive capacities. I will expect a finished draft plan by the time the Autobot officers arrive to talk strategy. I want this to be a briefing on our terms, not a discussion."

Gigatron glanced over Shockwave's shoulder at Cyclonus. "Ah, the warrior has returned. Tell me Cyclonus, are you ready to battle the Quintessons?"

It was a vague enough question to see where Cyclonus' loyalties and priorities lay. This one had many times been one of Gigatron's most vocal dissenters, and though he could be invaluable, it would require a test first.

Ultra Magnus was stopped infront the docking tune hatch, waiting for the moment to open the door and walking inside.

Override, following the Sparkabot, entered the holo-deck.

Snapdragon had managed to get inside the tavern without drawing much attention, so he saddled up to an empty seat near the end of the bar and threw an order at Wildrider.
"Hey buddy, how 'bout a double shot of energon with a tall glass of 40 weight. Something to get the fluids circulating, ya know?"

Having ordered, Snapdragon peered about the room and saw quite a few Cons, most of which he respected...
still no Autobots to eye up, much to his displeasure.

The Omega shuttle and the Minicons drifted up beside Dai Atlas, the shuttle activating it's external flood-lights.

On the main bridge, Skyfall stood up in his chair. He'd grown quite a bit, spent centuries with the greatest Autobot warriors and their decendants. He'd fought hordes of Decepticons and the minions of Unicron. But, in that instant, he was just a youngling, seeing his hero for the first time. His optics were wide open and the awe was blatant on his face. That is, until he got a good look at his hero.


The damage to the Powered Master was extensive. At a quick glance, it seemed as if there was no undamaged part of his hull. The main troop compartment was open to space and he was scorched from one end to the other.

"Starlight, you and the boys begin emmidate repair work. Make Spark-support functions the top priority. I want him to be stable enough to tow back to Metroplex."

Fizzle was slumped over in his chair, temporarily off line when backstreets communication came through. Fizzle shot up rather shakily to his feet, pieces of upholstery falling to the ground from his lap.
"I'm Up! I'm awake, coiled spring always ready..."
He looked at the controls with bleary eyes.
"Primus, I'm tired. Backstreet," he said, flipping on the rply switch of the radio, "Could you call either of the citybots and ask them what the hold up is? The sooner we get on the yellow deathstar to get this ship repaired the better, but we can't board till we have more of an autobot presence after all..."
Fizzle was exhausted from his panicking, and settled back down into his seat shakily. He was eager to relieve command to someone and get back to being an advisor.

Holodeck,
Guzzle drove forward slowly, incrediblt wary of the traffic around him.
How do I clear the area safely? he wondered: he was trying not to panic, as this was just a simulation; however, Guzzle had depended on his teammates for battle strategy in the past, and he wasn't sure if Dogfight could divide his attention whislt distracting the Stunticons...
Guzzle raised his cannon and fired a shell into the air; it was a timed explosive that ignited at the height of its arc, away from anything to do any damage. he transformed quickly and bellowed at the top of his audio speakers
"EVERYBODY MOVE! GET OUT OF HERE, MOVE!"

Space
Cosmos finished his scan of Dai:
"You're not looking good soldier" he muttered to himself, as he broadcasted his findings to the Skyfall Omega shuttle. He opened communications again:
"Speeder, looks like the shuttle crew are gonna take care of your partner: do you want to disembark and come with me to Fort max? I think Ultra Magnus might appreciate a report as soon as possible."

"Of course" replied Shockwave. He walked away to a strategy room just off the bridge.

Cyclonus looked up to Gigatron. Calmly and steadyily he replied

"Of course, Gigatron. The more Quintesson's I kill, the quicker Cybertron will be ours. It is a testing time for all of us, and if we can...bury our own misgivings for the greaster good of the Decepticon Empire, then we should have no trouble in removing the vile scum from our planet."

Shockwave entered the room, and quickly began making preparations. He turned on computers and the display systems, amplification systems, and dimmed the lighting. Once the room was ready, he sent a call to two particular Decepticons: Cryotek, and Hatemonger

"This is Shockwave; meet me in the Strategy Room which has direct access to the bridge. Bring all information relevant to the Quintessons and their defences. I have been tasked with proucing a battle plan for the combined forces of the Autobots and Decepticons, which is to be ready before the Autobots set foot on this Warworld.

Cryotek didn't say much of anything as he got up and transformed into his dragon mode and streaked too the strategy room.

The Predacons continued their ramblings in the mess hall.

"Come on, we all know Predaking is the mightiest gestalt period, forget our comrades or the Autobots we are the best their is." Tantrum roared just a bit happy off too much energon.

"Oh we know that but we don't need to continue to accounce that to all of Warworld!" Divebomb yelled back as the well four of the Predacons made a scene. Razorclaw stretched lazely up in the ceiling watching the happening below with a scene of amusment.

The holo-humans, trully frightened by Guzzle's sudden apparition, shot and amplified cries, started to flee and run scattering in all the possible directions.

Meanwhile, on the air, Dogfight maneuvered between the high skyscrappers and laughed at the apparently inattentive Holo-Stunticons. He loaded his weapons, unconcerned about the holo-humans safety.

Override, staring at the ongoing battle from the holo-deck entrance, made his decision and started to run towards Guzzle.

" Hello there pal! " he yelled. " I'm gonna help you with the civilians! " he said to the Sparkabot, while trying to lead the humans out of the combat area.

" OVER HERE! ", was saying Override to the humans, while pointing to the clear streets from where the humans could retreat.

As the Autobots moved to clear the holo-humens from the area, the 'fake' Stunticons sprung into action. Motormaster was the first to transform and take his atom smasher cannon out of subspace. The Stunticon leader fired it at Guzzle.

Dragstrip moved after the humans, not careing whether he ran them over or not.

Wildrider, Breakdown, and Deadend moved deeper into the city. When they got in deep enough , they transformed and brought their guns out of subspace.

Both Deadend and Wildrider fired their guns at Dogfight, while Breakdown focused his gunfire on Override.

Metroplex retractable docking tube docked with Fortess Maximus Main Airlock. In the voidness of cold space, no noise was made.

But inside the citybot, Ultra Magnus heard the docking noises echoing in the deck. Glancing at the hatch panel, he cheked the pressure readings - all lights green-, and opened the tube hatch. Bending, he stepped inside the tube and made his way as quickly he could towards Fort Max.

" I don't like this corridor; too narrow for a 'bot like me ", Ultra magnus thought.

Dogfight dived, dodging holo-Dead End's fire but taking a glancing hit on his right wing from holo-Wildrider attack.

" Ha! Is that what you Stunticons call 'combined attack'? "

The flying triggerbot fired a pair of missiles towards the two Stunticons. " Guzzle, I told you! This is not for weaksparked 'bots! " he told the Sparkabot. " But it's funny, isn't it? "

Near, Override watched Breakdown aproaching, and triggering his guns, he readied himself to return fire. But the Stunticon was faster and fired first, and the triggerbot was hit on his left shoulder.

" Blast you! I pulished my steel skin just before entering the deck! " yelled Override, transforming into attack bike mode and rolling towards Breakdown, firing his weapons.

" Wait a sec, dumbot; this is a simulation, your scratch is not real! " he said to himself.

" Understood sir ", replied Crosscut at Prime's request. " I believe a mixture between Autobot and Decepticon units in the Cybertron retake will be as effective as protective. The precedents, like the underbase incident, are a good point for this interaction, but it will be hard to convince Gigatron and his officers about that, not to mention a great number of our own troops. "

The Ambassador optics narrowed.

" If all the diplomacy it's not enough to convince them, we could try to persuade the decepticons. Denying our participation in the most dangerous war theaters if they don't acceded into mixing their units with ours, could be a good starting point to achieve our goals. "

"I find it strange being here in space. I feel like I don't belong here. It's well..alien. No trees, no sky, no birds, No Earth."

"Well don't worry old friend," Faslane said, "Soon enough we'll get used to it. I'm not used to space travel either."

Joyride left the window, and leaned on the wall. "What do you think is gonna happen to those POWs?" he asked.

"Bah, I say let the others deal with them. We did our job and it's finished."

Dogfight didn't heard Guzzle's last comments; he was too busy evading Wildrider and Deadend shots. Althought the triggerbot was able to evade all of the Stunticons shots this time - excpet one; a Wildrider's lucky shot disabled Dogfight's right fusion blaster-, he needed all of his energy and resources to simply make the evasive maneuvers. He couldn't fire back at the pair of Stunticons this time.

On the streets, Override dodged Breakdown's incoming shots too, but he wasn't aware of Dragstrip's charge. The yellow Stunticon collided with Override and the triggerbot - with one of his sides dented and broked -, painfully slided away from the impact.

" You again! " said Override while skidding away from Dragstrip. He fired his guns at the Stunticon, but he was still stunned from the crash and his accuracy wasn't precisely accurate.

At the front of the bridge, Spinister turned and looked back at overhearing. He'd hoped to lead the charge himself, though he supposed someone would need to stay with the Warworld. In any case, a helicopter probably wouldn't be much use in space...

Guzzle's turret canon left a hole in Motormaster's armour. The 'fake' Stunticon leader narrowed his eyes, then moved closer to the Autobot tank. Motormaster put his gun back into subspace as he went and pulled out his sword. As he tried to stab through Guzzle's armor, Motormaster did his best to stay out of the tank's canons line of fire.

" Ya say that like it's a bad thing" Holo-Motormaster said to Guzzle.

Wildrider and Deadend continued to fire their guns at Dogfight.

Breakdown fired his gun at Override.

While some of Override's shots easily missed their target, others hit the yellow Stunticon and left cracks were the shot hit. Dragstrip mostly ignored his wounds and tried to ram Override again.

"You can dock on the port side Cosmos..." Speeder said across the Comm. "I'm sure Prime'll want an update, but I'll leave that to the big guy. I'm not even sure where I'd begin...."

The Micromaster Sniper moved to the port side airlock, grabbing his rifle and ammo on the way out.

At the same time, the three minicons sent a signal to Skyfall, saying that Dai Atlas was in no danger of dying on the trip back to Earth.

Two magnetic Grapplers shot out from behind the Omega and latched on to the massive Powered Master.

"I'll follow you in Cosmos" Skyfall hailed from the command center. He could see the Minicons beginning their repairs of the Cybertronian Leader.

"Clumsy too." Blitzwing laughed somewhat harshly at the scared Autobot, more from habit than from intent.

The triple-changer's voice lowered into a serious tone.

Again, Dogfight used his superior maneuverability to evade the convined fire from Deadend and Wildrider, but this time the two Stunticons were well prepared and coordinated. Despite his efforts, Dogfight was hit several times by the decepticons, damaging his navigational system in the process.

" With this system destroyed, I can't fly! " thought Dogfight, now flying clumsy above the Stunticons.

Without hesitation Dogfgiht transformed into robot mode, landing between Deadend and Wildrider. Enaging his remaining fusion blowtorch blaster, he made a sharp waist turn trying to engulf the two Stunticons in a deadly flare of fire.

Some streets away, Override was able to dodge Dagstrip new charge, but the triggerbot received a hit from Breakdown's attack. Curiously, some of the Stunticon's shots missed Dragstrip for inches.
Ignoring the pain from his wounded side, Override tried a trick: he started moving around Dragstrip, trying to bring him in Breakdown's line of fire.

" Maybe I can trick Breakdown into firing at Dragstrip by accident! " thought Override.

" Overdrive! " he announced finally. " Overdrive! "

The Omnibot spy chuckled, and without hesitation and forgetting Overdrive's higher rank, he embrazed him. It was a real weird reaction from an Omnibot like Camshaft, but after the last missions an incidents - an after a tremendous amount of time alone -, for Camshaft was the natural reaction.

" I'm alive sir " he said finally, more serious this time. " Any news about Downshift's... whereabouts? "

Fort Max, Bluestreak's quarters:

It wasn't hard for Lightspeed to locate Bluestreak's personal quarters - after all, being an information expert, he had all the plans of fort Max in his memory. What he lacked, though, was being personally acquainted with Bluestreak - so, not knowing what to expect, he took cautious approach.

Coming closer to the door, he activated the information console on the door-post:

"Excuse me, Bluestreak, are you there? I am Lightspeed, Wheeljack sent me - he needs your advice. We all do."

Standing before the door, he expected an answer.


Fort Max, Holodeck:

As the one and only shooting range in Fortress Maximus was in the holodeck, Strafe headed there. As the big double doors opened on him, he was surprised to see a scene of carnage - two Autobots fighting valiantly against a score of Decepticons, whom he identified as Stunticons. A nanobreem later Strafe was ready to hail fire on the enemies... But - a wondrous thing - he held his attack, realizing that all Stunticons were just computer-generated images and posed no real treat. Instead of attacking, he crossed the deck to the command chair, sat in it and activated the transmitter:

"AUTOBOTS, IS BLUESTREAK HERE?" - big red letters appeared in the sky above Dogfight and Override.


Metroplex, Empty Shuttle Bay/Makesift prison for Insecticons:

-OOC:Sorry for the delay, but it was only yesterday that I decided to take playing Red Alert

Kickback was exhausted. One after another he offered Red Alert deal after deal, each one sweeter than the other - and still the impassive Autobot Security Chief stood silent and watchful. Some time passed in that manner, then some more, and even more... Finally, Insecticon could do nothing but cry:

"I beg you - answer, what is it that you want?"

"That's better" - came cold, calm and utterly calculated answer. "I was expecting you to give up, nothing more. Now you shall receive the treatment which is due for you... But never - I said never!!! - try to out-smart me again!"

"That's the way you treat those who you have a treaty with?" - Kickback cried.

"Oh, but we do not have a treaty between you, as independent Insecticon faction, and Autobots... or Decepticons, for that matter", - Red Alert answered, taking a small object out of the panel which popped open on his hand. "Here, on this tape, I have a complete statement where you've said you deny Gigatron's rule and want to be independent or even willing to defect to Autobot side, if you receive an adequate payment... Do you imagine what the Decepticon leader will do to you if presented with such evidence?.."

The question hung in the air ominously.

"I believe you do. Good. Now you shall be fed so you could continue your miserable existence", - Red Alert finished, sending a signal through his intercomm to some service droids.

"And thank you, Six Gun, for your help. Keep watching these pests a while longer, will you?"

Then he stepped back to the wall and called Ultra Magnus:

"Commander, this is Red Alert reporting. The interrogation was a smashing success - the Insecticons are ready and willing to co-operate, provided a minimal payment."

On a coded wave he added, though:

"But I still warn against trusting them. If they could be used in some way to provide the distruction for the enemy, that would be the best possible use for them".

"Red Alert out."

At the same time, the doors to shuttle bay lid open and a transport droid rolled in, three small energon portions (each no bigger than 1/10 of a cube) on his platform.

"Here's your payment", - Red Alert told Insecticons and turned in disgust seeing as the trio greedily rushed for the treat.

"It's mine-mine!", "Don't push!" and "Get off me" filled the bay...

Aero Blade still wasn't sure where Blitzwing was in the room, given his own disorientation, but in the least the unfamiliar bot seemed to be reasonably friendly, if not slightly concerned in a disinterested manner. The smaller tech just sighed for a moment though listening to him, situating himself agains the nearby crates, hugging his legs to his chest and resting his chin on his arms, mostly to give him a sense of stability more than comfort. He wasn't sure he deserved comfort right now...

"I know, I know, I've been telling myself that for vorns," Aero answered. "I know most medics just want to be helpful, and if one of my friends were hurt the first thing I'd do is rush them to the best medic I've heard of, but when it's me who's injured - if I so much as think about the medbay or its workers - my memories of the detention center medics come back and I can't see past anything else..."

Aero sighed again. "I guess I really don't have anything else. Most medics don't want to deal with it and just sedate me; good or bad or otherwise, I don't have memories of any other medics to call on..."

Dogfight's blaster fire caught Deadend and Wildrider's shoulders (and at least one of both their arms) as they dogded it as best they could. Where the shots hit became blacked and cracked. The two Stunticons shot at Dogfight.

Breakdown continued to fire at Override, as Dragstrip transformed and took his gun out of subspace. Breakdown's fire did manage to hit Dragstrip a few times.

" Watch were your shooting, glitch" Dragstrip said as he shot his gun at Override " or do you want me to stare at you."

" Go j-j-jump in a smelter, t-t-trinket" Breakdown said.

"gotta be something I can do." He mumbled. "Have to make it up."

He reached with his left hand, his gaze never leaving his shell, and plucked one of his machine guns. It had been lying on a nearby. Its ammo scattered around it, it's ammo feed slot clogged with dust. Crossblades began to clean it and sort its ammo. He stoped and looked down at what he was doing. Closing his optics he flung the gun to the floor.

"don't deserve..."

"Been awhile, feels stiff" he thought, and started unarmed for the door.

"You're hopeless, Autobot." Blitzwing growled at Aero Blade.

"You haven't been around a good repair technician and given them a chance in order to know what they do. You're a danger to anyone who works with you. Delete those old files manually from your memory and move on. Otherwise you'll put everyone around you in danger. A valueable member must be in top condition or they weaken the entire structure of their unit and they become disposable at best."

"You think I haven't tried?!" Aero Blade questioned sharply back at Blitzwing, his voice rising to an aggresive tone in response to to the other's. "There's millions of things I'd love to just simply drop, prayed to Primus I'd loose! But my processor just doesn't work that way, not anymore..."

Aero had to force himself to calm down a bit at that point, less he started speaking on something he didn't want to with an unfamiliar bot. He'd already figured out this was one of the defectors, only those that were originally Decepticons kept calling unknown bots by their faction due to old habbits usually. Maybe that's why Aero had calmed down so quick despite Blitzwing being completely foreign to him...

Once the thought had a chance to circulate and process, Aero wasn't so sure he liked it, thinking that way of himself. He seemed to hunker down a little further in his spot, brooding for a little while.

" Understood Red " said Ultra Magnus at his security director report. " I leave this matter in your hands. Take all the necessary measures. "

Override smiled.

" Yeah! The trick worked! " he thought, engaging his rear-mounted rocket pack. The sudden extra-speed helped him to dodge Dragstrip's and Breakdown's attack, but a lost shot hit him in the back. Rolling at top speed and afraid of losing control because of the hit, he transformed into robot mode and leaped to a street corner.

Override used the building as cover from Breakdown and trained his guns to Dragstrip.

" Now is my time, loser! " he yelled firing his weapons and wondering if the holo-Dragstrip would be affected by his pull.

Some streets away, Dogfight anticipated Deadend and Wildrider reactions and engaged his foot thrusters, leaping backwards and landing behind a human truck, covering behind. But the Stunticon's shots were at point blank range, and even Dogfight's superb agility wasn't enough to save him from the attacks. Several shots impacted on him, piercing and tearing off his wings and damaging some of his inner systems.

With his optics flashing in pain, he leaned out and fired his three shoulder mounter missiles, aiming at the two Stunticons.

Because of the battle, Strafe's message was unnoticed by the triggebrots. Maybe the technobot could enter the holodeck and ask the triggebrots...

Either he isn't, or he don't want to come out - the Technobot decided. But I bet I can learn his whereabouts whether he likes it or not....

Switching the console to other frequency, he addressed Fort Max himself:

"Fortress Maximus, this is Lightspeed. Confirmation of whereabouts of Autobot Bluestreak is required. Security clearance code BBAA2015."

The code wan't amongst high priority ones, but Lightspeed could hope that Bluestreak's security clearance level wasn't higher than his own, so his request should be granted.

He waited for the answer patiently - either from quarters' inhabitant or from Fort Max himself.

Metroplex, empty shuttle bay/makeshift prison for Insecticons:

Red Alert got Ultra Magnus's responce... and pondered what to do next.

Had the situation beed normal, he'd sent the Insecticons into jail (relieving them from their weapons first) and let them rust here for all eternity... But now, unfortunately, he had to decide on some other course of actions, and do it quickly. Metroplex had already landed on the Moon, and time was short before the combined assault on Cybertron will begin.

And still he had no idea what to do.

Sending the Insecticons to Gigatron would be pointless. One couldn't expect that the punishment the Decepticon leader would wrought on them would be severe enough to destroy the pests... So, it was wrong to offer more forces to the enemy. Yes, the Decepticons were still enemies - it was just a question of when they'll disrupt the truce, Red Alert had no doubt on that.

Trusting Insecticons as allies? Red Alert would rather execute the trio himself than trusted them to fight along with other Autobots. After all, only few 'bots could be trusted anyway... and none of them were trusted enough to keep an optical sensor on treacherous Insecticons while fighting.

Keep Insecticons as his own private force? Red Alert pondered the idea for a while, than dismissed it. It would require an extensive processing circuits surgery on Kickback and Bombshell before they could be used as pawns, without their own schemes and plans. Shrapnel was (or seemed to be... he could be pretending, after all) dumb enough, but still completely unreliable.

So, what to do? In which way those unreliable and temporary allies can be used in the way they would provide useful to Autobot cause, and preferably be destroyed while doing so? After all, he wasn't a strategist or something to devise a plan...

Wait...

A strategist!!!

That IS a perfect idea!!!

Red Alert activated his comm link once again, switching on coded frequency instantly so no-one around could hear him:

"Prowl, this is Red Alert. I need your help... Or, perhaps, I can help you. It depends from the point of view.

I've got three Insecticons here. They claim to be deserters from Gigatron's forces. More like spies, seems to me. Still, they crave to be given some mission and have a reward from us. I've got the energon to offer as a reward. What I lack is mission. Dangerous enough, deadly even better.

Remember, they cannot be trusted to fight against Decepticons - but perhaps they can provide a distraction against Quintesson forces? This is for you to decide. If... or when you'll have such a mission for them, inform me. They'll be brought to you immediately. Red Alert out."

He turned to his prisonners, who were finishing devouring the last remnants of their energon rations, and said with a broadest smile he could manadge:

"It seem you'll have a chance to earn your reward in full measure, after all..."

Spinister turned once more a moment later after verifying the signal. He had his own thoughts on it, but he knew well enough to keep to himself.

"We have a priority message from the Autobots, sir. Patching it through to your station."

Gigatron listened well to the communique twice, allowing his frustration to simmer before responding.

"This is Gigatron, Prime. I am also at the meeting place, but you may note my vessel is incapable of landing. Moreover, the meeting place is moot. Every moment we dawdle, the Quintessons further ready their defenses for our coming. They are as prepared as we are, but what they have that we lack is a strong line of communication among their ranks. If we are to survive and succeed in the upcoming conflict, it is imperative we even the playing field with the strength of trust."

The last word stuck iin his throat and left a bad taste in his mouth as he left. Still, as much as it would hurt, he could see that he - being in possession of the greatest trump card - would need to be first in offering the trust he did truly believe would be needed to win the coming war.

"The Warworld exists to destroy our mutual enemies, Prime. I will have two hangars awaiting you. Dock your cities here to conserve fuel over the journey, and I will meet you at the hangar to discuss our next move while we travel. Time is of the greatest importance, but concert is its equal. Gigatron out."

The Decepticon leader tapped his armrest to close the channel before turning to Spinister.

"Prepare the necessary accomodations. Be sure the inner hangar airlocks are sealed - I don't want Autobots wandering my fortress. Once the Autobots are aboard, set course for Cybertron. Tracer, assemble a sentry unit to monitor the corridors surrounding the hangars."

Spinister nodded and tapped the buttons needed to open two adjacent gargantuan hangar doors and to train the nearby exterior defenses to keep out unwelcome guests.

"Greetings," Patch said, "I am Patch, a medic. I hear you need some assistance." He glanced at Sideswipe and know that he needed to set to work. Patch raised his right hand and out of his wrist came a welding tool. With his other hand he grabbed another tool and set to work on Sideswipe.

Camshaft nodded to Overdrive and Gripper, and entered the holodeck. As the Omnibot entered the deck, he saw Strafe manning a console.

" Hey techno, do you want to join? " asked jovialy Camshaft, stepping inside the holo-city. Without waiting a reply from Strafe, he used his internal sensors to detect the transformer signatures in the surroundings.

" Overdive, I detect 6 simulations; one uncloncusive - could be a headmaster?- and 5 of the Stunticons: two of them fighting each triggerbot and the gestalt leader dealing with Guzzle. Apparently, all of our comrades are in disadvantage and with heavy damage. Any instructions, commander? " asked Camshaft, glad to be with his true comander.

Near, Dogfight quickly covered behind the truck as Deadend returned fire. The shots missed Dogfight, but destroyed his improvised cover. The truck explosion caused by the Stunticons shots damaged his wing-less back. Ignoring the damage-alert messages shining in his internal cpu, Dogfight leaped behind another stationed human vehicle - this time a police car-. The new cover was totally small, but it was the best he could find.

Leaning again, he fired his gatling machine gun towards Deadend.

---

" Oh damn it, I forgot about that gun! " moaned Override when Dragstrip's powerfull gun fired at him. Luckily, the triggerbot was quick enough to hide behind the building corner when the shots exploded across the wall.

" Haha! Who's the loser now, you ... " but Override's mock was severed by a resounding rumbling: Dragstrip shots missed the triggerbot, but destroyed a lot of the building floors. The structure collapsed amidst a cloud of smoke, and walls, debris and rocks fell upon him.

" They are doing well. Skydive is learning fastly; he's now my second in command, but it's not official yet. Air Raid is begining a friendship with Dirge and well, Slingshot is a pain... " said the Aerialbot leader, raising his drink. " And you, my friend? " asked politely Silverbolt.

"well, maybe if they get a little more energon in them, we could get something to watch. This waiting is driving me nuts."

Motormaster stood his ground and yanked his sword out, then used it to stab at Guzzle.

" You" Dragstrip said as he fired at Override.

Dogfights shots hit Deadend on the torso, leaving cracks and one or two holes in the armour. Done with the missiles, Wildrider shot at Dogfight.

Prowl folded his arms as he thought over possibilites. The strategist wasn't pleased with Gigatron's request. It jeapordized the entire faction.

Analyzing alternatives, he came to the conclusion in fractions of a second, that there were none.

But this can be modified.

On a secure channel, he spoke to the others.
"We will have to cooperate, however I recommend that the hangar doors be left open- there will be no need to close them and it will provide a quick exit if necessary. Optimus, I-unit will also be able to make use of that when the time comes."

Prowl switched channels and listened to Red Alert.
Gun fodder. He kept the thought to himself, and composed a more usual reply.

"Absolutely not. The defectors wound up injured or dismembered when exposed to the Decepticon troops last time and we will be working in teams with them. If they wish to remain with us, they will continue to stay in the vacated bay until planet surface arrival. No rewards. No Autobot requests rewards, and neither will they."

"Coward."
Blitzwing grumbled at the cowering Autobot.
He transformed into his robot mode and glared at the figure with a smirk.
"You're in a room, looking at far more danger and pain production than a medic would or could ever put you through."
"Get your parts in order or make the choice and just stay in here. I'm a warrior. I'm going to fight."

And he began heading for the door.

Aero Blade
2006-10-20, 03:58 AM
Storage Room, Fort Max

Aero Blade listened to Blitzwing go on about being a warrior, barely giving much reaction to it as he spoke. "I never claimed to be one. I'd be happy to live my life forever without fighting, but no-matter what I will never get that chance. I've learned by now it's just not meant to be for my kind..."

Our kind... Aero thought silently. Most normal decepticons enjoyed fighting, and were built for it, but even he himself, a complete contradiction to the stereotype, couldn't avoid it; he always somehow got caught up in it. And even if he wasn't fighting physically, he was still trying to fight against something in some manner...


Meanwhile in the hallway, someone else was approaching the storage room, curiosly attracted by the noise of familiar voices. He didn't place them immediately, but as he approached the door, he saw someone else he did recognize and was supprized to have encountered.

"Blitzwing?" Dirge asked aloud with confusion at the tripple changer's presence.


Medbay, Fort Max

It had been some time since the incident, but Stratus had still hung around, knowing Aero would need some space. For now he simply stayed in the medbay, keeping an eye on his target of choice - Ratchet.

Yes, that was the one for his partner, the head medic. He had to face a stern, hard nosed head doc with a background like this to help start getting over his fear, and most importantly the best effect would be for him to be in the medbay.

There in lay the problem. Old hard-nose had the authority, as well as already having stated, that Aero was not to be brought back in, and that would ruin everything. He was going to have to see if he couldn't work this guy over. He'd agitated enough Autobots and Decepticons in his active time to know what kind of buttons to push. It was time to see what this guy's buttons did...

Situated from his vantage point ontop of one of the medbay's cabnets, Stratus watched the medic go about his activities, keeping a sharp eye on him, all the meanwhile investigating the supplies that shared the space with him, finding a box with some metal patching plates in it that would do perfectly; loosly piled in the box, and not delicate, and they could be bent back easily if something did happen.

Having chosen his box, Stratus turned his attention back to watching Ratchet as he did his work. When the moment was just right, when the medic was crossing underneith him, Status quickly shoved the box over the edge of the cabnet so that it would crash to the ground just after the medic had passed.

"Understood," Tracer replied to Gigatron, finishing up with the computer as he was given his new orders. He moved over to a different area of the bridge, skimming through a computer for a quick glance at some personell files to see who would be good for this duty before he went off recruiting.

As the motorvators entered, they took in the scene of carnage and listened to Camshafts assessment.
Lightspeed grinned wofishly and hollered "I'll give ya instructions!!"
He then transformed and charged down the mostly empty highway at Guzzle and Motormaster, whooping and a hollerin.
Gripper sighed, knowing what tactic his scout had adopted. "Flame, with me: lets give the idiot covering fire!"
With that, the remaining Motorvators transformed and sped after Lightspeed in flanking positions, firing at any and all targets to ensure Lightspeed got to where he wanted...

Fort Max holodeck:

Strafe was disappointed by lack of reaction the Autobots participating in mock battle had shown. Worse, he saw a new group of Autobots who rushed onto the stage (inviting him on their way), and the holodeck computers responded in kind, creating a number of holographic apparitions to fight them. Now it was impossible to see from here, was Bluestreak amongst the warriors or not.

Only one chance to find out... well, I'll take this chance!

And, transforming into jet mode once again, he rushed to the stage of simulated battle, ready to find his objective... And blast some targets on the way!

* * *

The arrival of new Autobots was checked by holodeck program and responce measures were initiated.

Clone simulation programming... Initiated. Number of clones... 100 each type. Toughness of clones... 10 per cent.

Clouds above, which were only recently painted with letters asking about Bluestreak, had turned menacingly dark. They consisted of hordes of small winged purple-metal creatures, which were floating down to the streets.

"Insecticons attack!!!" - the three commanders, unrecognisable amongst the wave of clones, ordered.

Strafe started to pour laser fire on descending wave of bugs... Unfortunately, he hadn't maneuvered fast enough to avoid collision, and fell down, swarmed all over with Bombshell's twin likenesses.

Before the group of Motorvators three insect creatures had landed - Kickback's, Bombshell's and Shrapnel's clones. The fire from Flame and Gripper devastated the group, destroying them in nanobreem; but new clones descended, some falling under the wheels of advancing Motorvators, some landing behind and screaching after their prey in useless rage, some jumping on top of Autobots. Two Shrapnel-clones assaulted Gripper, biting into his armor; three more Kickbacks landed on top of Flame. Only Lightspeed - the spearhead of the assault - remained clear, all bugs attacking him either trod on or thrown aside.


* * *

Metroplex, empty shuttle bay/Insecticon makeshift prison:

Prowl's answer had disappointed Red Alert greatly. Security Director had hoped that a way to get rid of the troublesome Insecticons would be offered to him quickly; instead, they were ordered to be his responsibility "until the landing". So, he had to devise something to busy those pests with.

"Give up your weapons!" - he ordered.

"What-what? Why should we give-give you our weapons?" - Shrapnel, who had finished his portion of energon, asked.

"Yea, why should we?" - Bombshell supported him.

"They would be inspected, reloaded and returned to you before you will undertake your mission. You shall be placed in secure CR chambers where you shall recover. Any damage that you have shall be repaired."

"Is this the way to treat..." - Kickback started once again.

"No, this is merely the condition under which you will recieve your own weapon, which was confiscated from you, back. Plain and simple."

Red Alert was sure that Insecticons were not to be trusted. But putting them into CR chambers along with confiscating their weapons would render them mostly harmless for a while, giving him time to invent some new ideas... as well as check those Autobots who participated in capturing and bringing those Insecticons here. With mind control abilities which one of the bugs possessed, one had to be careful to the utmost.

Kickback, meanwhile, had engaged in fierce argument with his teammates.

"You must trust me! Hadn't I provided you with energon as promised?"

"Not trust-trust Kickback!"

"And there were much less energon than you promised, too."

"Listen to me! Would this Autobot ask us to give up our weapons if it was his intention to destroy us? Would he feed us? No, this is only a precaution measure, nothing more. Shrapnel, if you won't agree, you wouldn't get no more energon - is this plain enough for you?"

"You want your weapon back so you try to make us surrender ours. This is some kind of perverse logic, Kickback. Did someone hit you on your head too hard?"

"Stop insulting me, Bombshell! If not for my actions, you both would rust for eternity in that hole on Earth! I saved you, I've brought you energon and I delivered more of it! You must obey my commands, or else those Autobots will destroy you and I wouldn't raise a finger to stop them!"

"Perhaps it's you who shall be destroyed by Autobots..." - Bombshell answered menacingly. "After all, my cerebro-shells make me more valuable ally than you..."

"No-no!!! Shrapnel's electrical interference is more-more powerful!!!" - and Shrapnel, intent to prove it, activated the discharge circuits around his antennae...

"Stop it!!! I command - STOP!!!" - Red Alert screamed, but Insecticons payed no attention to him. Enraged, he turned to Six Gun:

"Ready your weapons! Aim at Insecticons! At my command..."

Shockwave took the disc that was offered to him, and placed it into the computer.

Information flashed up, and he began to analyse the data.

A pattern soon began to appear, and a solution to the problem became apparant to Shockwave.

He turned to face his two fellow officers.

" Hatemonger, Cryotek. As you can see, the Quintessons do expect a large-scale attack from the combined forces of ourselves and the Autobots. However, what they have not factored into their equations, is the fact that we, and not the Autobots are leading the attack.

"Without taking into account that we would take the initiative, the Quintessons have made a vital mistake. They have placed their forces accross Cybertron, in the misplaced and incorrect knowledge that the Autobots would, if not exercise, then at least momentarily consider, mercy. For once, the Autobot's failings may actually be the one thing that helps our cause.

"As such, their forces are not as strong as we would expect; they have kept numbers in reserve, as opposed to having a full contingent of numbers. I suggest the following:

1) The Autobots fight those Quintesson forces already deployed. They will keep themselves busy that way.

2) We attack the reserve troops. Not only will they be unprepared four our assault, we can clearly see that the reserves are placed near to centres of command. By attacking them swiftly and efficiently, we can regain control of Cybertron whilst the Autobots are still engaging the already deployed forces.

3) We do not, until near the end of the battle, join forces with our entrenched allies. No doubt they have their own orders and plans, and to impose upon them would jeopordise all we are working for.

"Do you have any questions, or ideas that may further help this plan?" he asked of Hatemonger and Cryotek

Override, buired under the collapsed building, tried to incorporate. Despite the huge amount of debris covering him, he still heard the battle sounds.

" Well, at least I'm safe from the decepticon's guns... " thought Override.

Obviouslly, Dragstrip and Nautilus shots weren't able to find them, but the destruction bringed by the decepticons attack on the debris pile caused another collapse, burying Override under even more rocks.

" Arrgh! " yelled the triggerbot when a metal bar pierced through his shoulder.


Near, and unaware about his friend whereabouts, Dogfight tried again to cover behind the car when Wildrider fired, but this time he was too slow - Dogfight's wounds were slowing him-.
The Stunticon's shots hit Dogfgiht in the hip and in the left leg, causing the triggerbot to roll in the air.

Dogfight hit the ground behind the still-undamaged police car, and started to safe as energy as he could from his secondary systems. Rising on his feet - and overloading his self-repair system in the process - he fired another burst of bullets to Wildrider.

...

" Overdive! " said Camshaft pointig at the Stunticons attacking Dogfight. " I'm going to help him! "

The Omnibot started towards the damaged triggerbot while engaging all of his electronical warfare systems, trying to confuse or discourage the Insecticon Clones buzzing around him. He armed his weapons and fired two missiles towards Deadend and Wildrider, while adding shots from his rust rifle to his firepower.

Fort Max Holodeck:

Emerging from the pile of rubble, Strafe manadged to shake two clones from himself; the third one he simply ripped apart. Kicking the pile to make way for himself, he saw a hand suddenly. Somebody was there, under all the debris. But who could it be - a friend or foe?

Strafe pondered what to do... then took his heat-rifle (out of subspace) in his right hand and pulled with the left, truing to get Override (though still not knowing who he is) from under the debris.

Meanwhile, Camshaft's electronical warfare systems seemed to have inverse effect on some part of clones - Shrapnel's. Attracted rather then repelled, they swarmed towards Camshaft. His two missiles exploded in clones' midst, one taking down four clones and the other pulverising two, his rust rifle had grounded three more enemies, but still a dozen fell on him...

Metroplex, Insecticon makeshift prison:

"No, don't shoot, please! We all surrender!" - Kickback cried, turning to Six Gun and Red Alert.

"No we don't-don't!!!" - Shrapnel insisted stubbornly.

"Oh yes we do", - Bombshell, never slow to access the situation, augmented his words with a strong blow on Shrapnel's head. Then he threw his cerebroshell gun toward Autobots. "I'm ready to disarm, though I can't remove my head mortar."

"This will do", - Red Alert answered coldly. "Now you, Shrapnel."

"All right-right, have it!!!" - and Insecticon dropped his grenade launcher to the floor.

"Excellent. Six Gun, gather the weapons and follow me. We'll take these... guests to the med bay where they can have proper treatment."

Unwiling to cooperate, unable to protest, Insecticons were led toward medbay...

Almost getting ran into by a tank did not make Motormaster a happy Decepticon. In fact, it gave him quite a few dents in his chest armour. That didn't stop Motormaster from trying to use his sword to cut Guzzle's cannon barrel off.

Dogfight's barrage of bullets hit Wildrider, making the damaged to the insane Stunticon's chest armour worse. Wildrider laughed and returned Dogfight's fire.

Having seen Camshaft on his radar, Deadend turned around in time to shot the missile heading for Wildrider down, but was hit by the one aimed for him. The explosion took out most of his arm, plus blackening and cracking Deadend's side armour. Deadend shot his gun at Camshaft as he moved towards cover.

The force from Motormasters sword came down with great force on Guzzles cannon barrel: the barrel dented and buckled, but most of the force, rather than breaking it, caused Guzzle to tip forward dramatically.
"Ah nuts."

Behind him, Flame tried to keep a cool head as the Kickback clones landed: he kept his speed, but turned sharply to the right and then again to the left, sending himself into a desperate spin to try and throw his attackers off.

Gripper meanwhile, suffering more damage than his troubleshooter partner, put the brakes on sharply and transformed -

Daniel rounded the corner, and entered the rec-area, not really sure why. Other than tending to patients, he hadn't had much interaction since his return. While he was still VERY uncomfortable being back with the Autobots, he was an incredibly sociable person and he needed to be around others.

He walked in an looked around the room and up at the Autobots gathered.

As Gripper transformed, one Shrapnel clone fell under his feet and got stomped, while the other manadged to evade being crushed and jumped to the air, obviously more intent to get some other prey. His comrades took to the air too, as if directed by single urge (indeed, they were coming towards Camshaft, whose electronic countermeasures attracted them rather then repelled). For a while, Gripper was free of pests.

Flame's maneuver, meanwhile, was unsuccessful - while dislodging two Kickbacks, he ran into a close group of five more. The last clone, seeing that the impact is imminent, jumped to the air from Motorvator's roof, his hind legs slamming the hood with strength enough to tear through four-inch armor.

Six more clones landed behind Lightspeed, cutting the Motorvator from his comrades. They were twin copies of Bombshell, and their snouts-mortars spewed fragmentation shells at Lightspeed's teammates.

Strafe, too, had his fair share of troubles. Between looking to the air (awaiting a new wave of bugs) and tugging at Override's hand, he hadn't noticed Nautilus firing at him. Being stung in his shoulder and in his back with stun charges, he suddenly felt himself unable to move. He felt on his face heavily, collapsing over the Autobot he attempted to help.

Camshaft optics narrowed as a dozen Shrapnel's clones headed towards him.

" Slaggit! " he yelled. The Omnibot subspaced a pair of new missiles and continued to broadcast the electronic warfare. Stepping backwards, he fired his missiles towards the insecticon swarm, trying to destroy as many as he could. Also, he fired his rust rifle to the clones.

Then Camshaft was hit by Deadend's shot. The blast scorched his right shoulder armour, leaving a pair of ugly melted holes on it, but the Omnibot continued his way.

Near, Dogfight was hit this time in the waist. He was able to shot a last burst of bullets to Wildrider before collapsing and falling to the ground, just behind the car.

Buried below the ruined building and under the fallen Strafe, Override was damaged but still on-line. Barely aware of his surrounding, the only thing the triggerbot could do was move his free hand and clapping Strafe's arm.

Inside the fallen builing, Strafe felt Override tugging on his hand. It meant his sensors were coming online; alas, his actuators weren't as yet...

"S-shot... P-paralyse..." - he manadged to croak.

Camshaft's missiles, impacted in the midst of Shrapnel's clones, pulverised three of them and scattered twice as much. One more clone fell to shots from rust rifle, one more was hit by accidental shot from Deadend. Only the last one manadged to get close to Camshaft and tried to sting him with electric charge.

Meanwhile, mortar shells fired by Bombshell's clones exploded around Flame and Gripper. Unfortunately, some fragments were near enough to get Weirdwolf.

Camshaft continued to move backwards taking Deadend's remaining shots on his chest, suffering minor damage. The Omnibot was confident on his super-hard body armor, but he tried to move out of Deadend's range anyway. But right now, the Omnibot had more inmediate problems.

" Yeek! " he said as the last Shrapnel clone charged towards him. The electric sting hit on the Omnibot's arm, paralysing his gun hand. With his other remaining hand, he throwed a blow to the clone head. Also, Camshaft tried to interpose the Insecticon clone between Deadend's position and himself.

Dogfight, watching from ground level Wildrider's aproach, a desperate idea formed in his head. When the Stunticon started to move around the car Dogfight was using as a hiding-place, he leaned his hands on the vehicle back and pushed it forward with all of his strengh towards Wildrider. Then he transformed into his wing-less jet mode and with his landing gear used as wheels, he engaged his afterburners and moved away from the ongoing police car. As he engaged his engines, he left a trail of fire from his remaining blowtorch blaster to the ploice car. In a second, a police car in flames was moving towards Wildrider.

" Probably the stunticon will evade the car-bomb, but the car is going to explode very soon. The blast and the cloud of black smoke will hide my retreat! " thought Dogfight, rolling fastly like a human hot rod, moving away from the police car.

Override, worried about Strafe's reply, tried to form a plan. He had his shoulder badly damaged by the ruins, but he still had some juice in his afterburner. And with Strafe's last efforts to liberate him, Override was sure he could start a dangerous manouver. Narrowing his optics and convincing himself again that the damage suffered was only simulated, he engaged his rear afterburner.

The sudden acceleration breaked his jail of debris, and Override jumped through the rocks, landing clumsy behind the ruins, just at the technobot's side. The only thing the triggerbot was able to do was to grab Strafe and dragging him out of the fire line.

" How are you pal? " asked Override.

Having been watching for some thing like that to happen, Wildrider managed to dogde the car and shot his gun at Dogfight before it blow up. The explosion debree ramed into wildrider's back and managed to knocked him down, even as it covered the area in smoke.

Deadend kept firing at Camshaft, meaning to get in as many shots as he could before the Autobot was out of range.

Dragstrip fired his gravity gun at Override and Strafe.

He contemplated for a moment, then decided that he really didn't care about his armor, Autobots were starting to land, and he needed to be closer to both them and the action, after all, Quints were lining up to get in his sights......

Fizzle ticked off all the autobots who had reported in... Which didn't take long.
He then replied to the communication from Rosdos:
"I'll come over and have a look once we've docked on the warworld Rosdos: you've completed them well ahead of schedule, even without taking into consideration the recent craziness. Well done friend: soon we'll have some thing that can do soemthing other than beat on decepticons!"
Fizzle opened a line to Backstreet:
"Rosdos has completed the Guardians we drew plans for back on metroplex: once we're all boarded, do you want to go there and give them the once over with me?"

Oh, and it seems while we weren't looking, the Decepticons rebuilt the Warworld. So, when we dock, try not to panic at the moon sized bright yellow deathstar with the decepticon decals: I have that covered."

Lightspeed (M) almost lost his footing and stumbled as he landed, his sword strike missing Motormaster rather badly. This worked to his favour however, as he was no longer in Guzzles field of fire for his flame thrower.

Flame had been sent flying by the Kickback Clones kick after his unsuccesful maneauver (sp?), and was sent landing on to his car roof: he transformed in time to see the oncoming Mortar shells from the Bombshell clones, and had little choice but to duck and cover...!

Gripper, left in a better position by the Shrapnel clones retreat, saw the oncoming shells and defused the situation with some well placed blasts from his wrist cannon:
Gripper took what stock he could of the situation, and called it as best he could.
"All Autotbots, converge on the wounded and Rally: repeat, all autobots, converge on Strafe and Override Now!"
With that he began to fall back...

Nautilus (holo clone) had screamed with sadistic delight at his succesful shot on Strafe.
"Auto-filth, I am coming for you!" he shrieked.

Warworld, librarium
In the datahalls of the warworld, where the Decepticons had stored what they had felt would be of use for upcoming battles and their enemies, the Autobots and the Quintessons, a small bat creature was swooping between the file walls, a record grapsed in his claws. His name was Skar, and he was returning to his master.
His Master was sitting at a deck, reviewing more and more data on a terminal. he was a huge cynertronic bird of prey, and answered to the name of Karrion.
Skar flew past and over thee desk, dropping the record lightly by Karrion, and perching above him, upside down.
"What are we looking at Boss?" Skar asked carefully.
"We," began karrion, almost spitting the word, as if to say There is no we, Skar, there is me, and there is you "are making sure we can earn our keep. The political situation changes constantly: enemies are friends because of greater enemies. What we know now may not be enough. We must always look to better our knowledge, and ourselves."

Spinister's focus was fully locked on the incoming Autobot vessels until their landing was complete. He knew it would be total folly for them to attempt an attack on the Warworld, but he trusted them nary as far as he could throw the whole lot. With the procedure finished, the Targetmaster commed his leader.

"Lord Gigatron, the Autobot cities are docked. Preparing to go to hyperspeed."

It was only a few flicks of the controls that caused the gargantuan hangar door to close behind the Autobot cities. After the few minutes the mechanisms took to maneuver the shield had passed, Spinister punched in a series of commands to bring on the hyperspeed engines. The enormous battlestation's thrusters shut down dead for an instant, and after the dead silence in the depths of space, Earth's makeshift second moon disappeared from sight, rocketing through space at multiples of the speed of light to find its target: Cybertron.

Guzzle's shot hit Motormaster straight on and started to melt his torso armour (and damaged the circuits under it).

Overdrive's shot hit Deadend, causing the Stunticon to take his attention off of Camshaft and destroying some circuits when the shot hit an armour part that had a hole in it. Deadend shot his gun at Overdrive.

Flame had been buffeted by the bombshell clones mortar attack, but damage had been minimal; he looked to his commander, nowimpaled by Weirdwolf, and carfully took aim, firing a low charge shot across his back -

Lightspeed gathered his senses, and transformed, charging after Motormaster gleefully -

Fort Max holodeck:

Rescued by Override, Strafe slowly got his actuators online. Unfortunately, this process was interrupted twice; first - when Dragstrip's gravity gun was fired at their position, and second - when he'd heard Nautilus's gleeful shriek.

"I... I'm all right, leave me here, I'll hold them..." - he voiced to Override... and fumbled with his heat-ray rifle, dropping it with still-numb hands. "Damn those paralysing shots!!!"

Meanwhile, "clone war" continued on the holodeck. About a third of the clones were exterminated, but the remains were aggressive as ever.

Shrapnel's clones converged at Camshaft's position, but now they attempted a new tactics. Instead of attacking in close formation, twoscore of clones surrounded the Autobot, circling him in a ring of sparks. Unfortunately (for them - and for other Decepticons) it meant they were blocking other Decepticons' line of fire, or getting into them.

Bombshell's clones resumed their bombardment, some of them aiming at Gripper, some at Flame. Kickback's clones, having been wounded by "friendly" fire from Bombshell's likens, retreated and regrouped, leaving their intended target - Flame - alone. Instead they landed amongst Bombshell's clones, as if to strengthen the line. Now the Motormasters' team was effectively cut in two - Gripper and Flame on one side of line of clones, Lightspeed on the other. And a single Bombshell, somehow different from others, was now intently tracking Lightspeed's movements with its muzzle...

Fort Max corridors:

"Oh, I've a datapad for you right here", - and Lightspeed handed Bluestreak a datapad with Jetwave's blueprints. "I always carry a spare copy - after all, I'm an information expert in my team...

You see, Jetwave is equipped exclusively with non-energy weapons. I've never asked him about it, but it seems there's some motives to this decision. He's got guided missiles, mortars that can fire 18-inch explosive or armor-piercing shells, and torpedoes for underwater use. It was more or less all his armament in his previous mode - why it still seems to me that we've missed something?"

"None of your concern, Insecticon. Get to your stasis... I mean, CR chamber, now!" - Red Alert ordered harshly.

"I don't-don't like it..." - Shrapnel whined for the umpteenth time.

"So do I... But we must do what we're said", - Kickback answered, perhaps for the first time allowing himself a thought that all this endevour with Autobots had been a mistake from the very beginning. But now he was powerless to stop it, and forced to obey...

Hatemonger and Cryotek looked up at Shockwave as he concluded his speech.

"I concur." Hatemonger said nodding his head. "By seperating our forces and striking where they are weakest and moving in and by not directly assisting our forces it will help create panic among the Quints when a suddenly far superior force begins to wipe them out." He said looking at several maps and graphs.

"It seems the Quints have some new tech since we last fought them." Hatemonger said eyeing footage of a group attacking lower level gestalts on Cybertron. "However with the upgrades to Predaking and the superior Decepticon and Autobot combiner groups I think the Quints are in for a most unpleasant surprise." He said looking at Cryotek.

"Yes, also I feel we do need to involve the Autobots in the planning stages of the battle to retake our land. However, as Shockwave said this must remain a mostly Decepticon strategy. As our thought processes are far more militarstic than the bots could dream of being. That being said we should draw up plans using both the Autobot and Decepticon warriors to create the greatest shock and destruction of the Quints as we can." Cryotek said waiting for a reply from Shockwave.

"Hmm, it is rather funny seeing any creatures eyes look wildly before they dim when you place a round right into their CPU core." Divebomb smiled coyly.

"Yeah, but it's not as much fun as feeling the energon and oil pouring on your body as your rip them apart." Tantrum said starting to agree to a point with his hyperactive Predacon brother.

"Oh if your close enough to them you still get plenty of that!" Quake said grabbing a seat and sucking on some energon.

"How about we just agree that tearing Quints to bits will be fun." Razorclaw growled from above.

"Sure why not." Quake said tossing down an energon brew.

"I guess so." Rampage said as the other Predacons kicked a droid to gather more drinks for the group. "Get one for the Targetmaster too." Tantrum grunted booting the droid again as it buzzed and rolled off and the group laughed outloud.

Gigatron stepped aside and extended a welcoming hand toward the lone turbolift at the end of the city-sized hangar.

Fort Max holodeck:

"Thanks, pal", - Strafe replied to Override. "I'll... I'll..."

Wordless (forgetting completely this was only a simulated battle), he attemped to crawl to the edge and tried to get his weapon. Fortunately, the effects of paralitic shells were almost over now, and he manadged to bring his heat-ray rifle and aim it - if not precisely at Nautilus then in his general direction.

"Now you'll pay for your treachery, Decepti-scum!!!" - he cried, and blasted aquatic Decepticon with hail of heat rays. "Dive if you can!!!"

On the other side of the simulated battle, Shrapnel's clones had a tough time. First, Camshaft had manadged to get out of their ring (squashing three into mecha-pulp on his way). Second, Overdrive's burst teared through the ranks, slaying six more in rapid succesion. And last, when the remaining clones were about to start the pursuit, heavy stones and chunks of cement from the destroyed building crushed on them from above.
Then two pieces of satellit dish, falling on top, had finished the picture.

A lone figure of Shrapnel emerged from a cloud of dust on wobbling legs. Suddenly it transformed into robot mode - the last of the clones was a simulation of Shrapnel himself.

"Now you-you shall pay-pay for thisssss, Autobot", - he hissed, and blue sparks flew from his antennae.

Around Overdrive a part of the street was engulfed with electric fire - lamposts blew out spewing electricity, underground cables shorted out, adding their power to the electrical malstroem. The window of nearby store shattered and chunks of glass flew out as all the TV sets exploded inside.

"I shall-shall FRY you, SKREEEEEEEEE!!!" - mad Insecticon screached as electricity he controlled was unleashed at his enemy.

Fort Max medbay, Stasis Bay 12:

The trio of Technobots - Scattershot, Afterburner and Nosecone - were helping Wheeljack with re-assembling Jetwave into his new form, while waiting for Bluestreak.

The work was going slowly, but surely. Jetwave's internal frame was now bulging here and there with miomer muscles, drives and actuators, mechanisms and wires. It was only a short time before sensor and comm systems would be installed, the outer layers of the armour placed, and then...

A miracle of Reformat would be over.

Metroplex medbay:

The Insecticons were about to enter their (secured) CR chambers when a signal came from the bridge:

First Aid, Skyfall and Cosmos are bringing some woundeds here, be ready!

"Oh... in case of this", - Kickback said smartly, - "we'd rather be stationed somewhere else, not to interfere with treating your wounded... By the way, how were they wounded - was the truce breached or what?"

"It is of no concern to you, Insecticon!" - Red Alert answered angrily. "Get in or swear by Primus I'll put you in stasis bay instead!"

"Well are we pushy today... coming, coming already", - and Kickback was the last of Insecticons to take his CR chamber. Lids hissed, closing down and locking on them, then Red Alert went to a wall console:

"Red Alert to Metroplex. Entering directive.

CR Chambers MB-12, MB-13 and MB-14 must be blocked and locked. Opening allowed by authorised personnel only, specific Red Alert, Ultra Magnus or under direct command by Optimus Prime.

Directive is to be executed now. Red Alert out."

Free at last, the Security Chief went on his duties. He had to check if communicating with Insecticons had any effects on the Autobots inwolved... But first things first, and now he had to inspect (and, possibly, question) the new arrivals.

Red Alert headed for airlocks.

Medbay, Fort Max

Wing Saber continued to lay as he was while the medics worked on him. He wasn't quite sure what they were talking about, but the name they'd meantioned sounded familiar. After a moment of thought he was able to recall it from the original crew listing for the Ark, whick piqued his curiosity a bit.

"This Ironhide you meantion, why is good?" Wing Saber asked to Minerva, unsure of how this had anything to do with him, having never met the Autobot.



Bridge, Warworld

Having finished looking through the personell files for adequate recruits, Tracer quickly checked on the condition of the Autobot ships' docking, seeing that he'd best get on the move in the event the Autobots decided they'd try to have a look around...

Tracer started immediately to the airlocks that needed to be monitored, openning up his com along the way. "Snapdragon, Karrion, report to the docking bay airlocks for an assignment."
