A peaceful territory on the western fringes of Autobot territory, Altihex is home to their main detention facility. Filled with dangerous criminals, Decepticon POWs and Autobot soldiers convicted of serious crimes, the prison is not popular among the local population.

Guard's Break Room, Sentinel Prime Detention Centre

As the secure door to the lounge slid shut, Downshift let out a ragged sigh.

"What a day," he said ruefully. "I swear, we'd be better off of we took the scum that we've locked up here, lined them up and landed a starship on top of them..."

Several other guards looked up from their datafeeds, energon or other distractions and made vague agreeable noises. Most of them had learned to ignore Downshift's grumblings by now.

Powerflash glared at Downshift

"Regulations specifically forbid us from harming, bullying , excessively intimidating or killing prisoners. It's all there in sub para 14 and 17 of the prison regulation act."

Bumblebee drove in via escort. "So why exactly am I being transferred?" Bumblebee asked the escort.

"With all due respect, sir," Downshift told Powerflash, "it's attitudes like that that let these scumbags back out on the streets after they've served 1/3 of their sentences, free to wander around robbing, terrorizing and killing innocent civilians. Hang the regulations!"

Several other guards made agreeable noises, but did their best not to look Powerflash in the optics as they did so.

"The security centre really isn't set up for long-term detention," Clampdown told Bumblebee. "The lockup there is basically the equivalent of a drunk tank in a human police station. In Altihex you'll actually be able to talk to a JAG magistrate and maybe get a chance to have the charges against you dropped."

As the security officer spoke, the convoy moved across the Iacon-Altihex border. Hitting a major interchange, they turned north and headed toward the prison.

Powerdflash shook his head

"Without regulatins there is chaos and we would be no better than the Decepticons. If the regulations are properly applied the prisoners will serve their full terms unless they show contrition. Its a slapdash attitude to the rules that leads to them getting off. Not following proper investigative procedure or sloppy chain of evidence. That's what lets lawyercons get them off."

"Well..." The red minibot then paused moment, decided how to continue before go back to the conversation. "I was on a patrol shift or two then watched some races kinda disappointed. Looking if there's any work to be done then ran in with your guys on the way."

"So basically it's just a minor transfer?" Bumblebee said and transformed into robot mode, stopping in the street. "Anything I should know about this new place? Who to avoid, etcetra."

"I would avoid Downshift as much as I can," Clampdown told Bumblebee. "He can be a bit...overzealous when it comes to people accused of committing crimes." He wanted to say more but didn't, unwilling to mention the rumours of prisoner abuse and even murder that had started to filter down the pipe from the Altihex garrison with a reporter present.

To Warpath he said, "I'm not sure if you'll find anything interesting with us either, but you're welcome to tag along.

Solitary Confinement

Wildrider drummed his fingers against the wall of his cell, hoping the repetitive thumps would drive away the otherwise-oppressive silence that surrounded him.

It didn't work.

The Stunticon sat there for a few seconds, not moving at all. Then the right side of his face twitched and he vaulted up, throwing himself bodily against the thick steel door that held him inside. He fell back to the ground, but jumped up again with a demented roar and repeated the process again and again.

Break Room

Downshift scowled at Powerflash as the noises from the solitary block filtered into the room.

"Oh, really?" Crossing his arms, the Omnibot jerked his head in the general direction of Wildrider's cell. "You think that psychopath in there is going to be all sweetness and light eight vorns from now when his sentence is up? Like the Pit he will, sir. He's killed dozens of innocent Transformers and countless humans. He almost killed two of my boys for no reason at all the other day, with nothing but a stylus and a cafeteria tray. What do you think he's going to do when he's back out on the streets?" Downshift shook his head. "No, all this rehabilitation nonsense that the left-leaning bleeding-sparks like to drag out, that won't make one bit of difference to someone like Wildrider. There's only one way to bring scum like him to justice, and that's through the barrel of a gun."

Powerflash jabbed a finger at Solitary

"that's what happens when you try and combine a prison with a prisoner of war camp. And i agree with you about Wildrider , we should have had a proper war crimes trial and had him executed by firing squad if it wasn't for being afraid of Decepticon retaliation we would have too."

"So, what, we should just forget about all of his crimes because it's not politically convenient?" Downshift shook his head. "I'm sorry, sir, but justice doesn't work that way. When we start compromising our principles for the sake of convenience we become no better than the criminals."

Oh great, a crazy, Wildrider thought as he got back up to his feet.

"Now, now," he said to Conflagration, "don't be so snappy, buddy. Threatening me isn't going to get you out of that cell any quicker. It just means that I'm gonna have to put you down along with the guards when I get out. And I'm not gonna make it quick, either. Is that what you want?"

"Not far at all," Clampdown told Bumblebee. Activating his comlink, he hailed the prison. "Powerflash, this is Clampdown. We're inbound with your newest prisoner, about ten minutes away from the main gates."

Solitary Confiement

Dead End sat cross-legged on the floor of the solitary confinement. "I am doomed". he said to himself. "I am doomed. doomed. doomed. doomed. doomed." The Stunticon had no hope for himself. But then, he never had any in the first place.

Dead End looked around. The door that held him in the confinement is still there. He knew it wouldn't budge, so he wouldn't bother trying. "*sigh* When will this end? Primus claim me now!"

He wonders why he even bothers to shout. Everything will die and burn out. It is the law of nature.

Searchlight piped up from where he is sitting, "I think keeping these Decepticon freaks in solitary is starting to rub on them. Look at Wildrider, he is more insane than before. And Dead End here is given up hope. But then, the Decepticons are insane to start with. I say we beat them up."

Powerflash shook his head .

"that's not what I said. It wasn't me who decided we needed to tread softly. If it was my decision we would have had trials and very public ones for all the Stunticons and the rest of them if someone hadn't let them escape somehow ?"

Powerflash replied to his com

"Roger that we'll be ready to process him."

Powerflash glared at Searchlight

"Don't even think about it , we're not Decepticons."

He glanced at his list


"Searchlight go and get ready to greet our new arrivals at the main gate. Downshift what cells have we got available?"

Conflagration rocked back and forth laughing.

"oh yes come see me so I can introduce you to the sweet flame of fire. Then you will dance, dance little one. Have you seen Conflagration friend ?"

Conflagration giggled incongruously given the bulk of his tank alt mode.

Downshift shook his head in disgust at Searchlight's suggestion as the Throttlebot left the room. He wanted to kill the Decepticons for the sake of public safety, not for the fun of it. He scowled, then turned back to Powerflash. "The forensic teams have just finished going over Misfire's old cell and declared it clean. We can put him in there, at least for now."

"We've got all the paperwork right here," Clampdown told Searchlight, transforming to robot mode as the smaller Autobot came out to meet them.

Searchlight's optic (visor actually... It's hard to describe...) widened slightly when he saw Bumblebee. He took the paperwork from Clampdown, but his attention was upon the Minibot, "What did they peg you for again this time?" Searchlight knew that Bumblebee often got into trouble with the Autobot leaders.

He is painfully aware of that. Once he had escaped with Bumblebee in a similar chase from his fellow Autobots. But this time... A prison... "The paperwork checks out. How disappointing." He said to the entire escort, "Come on in. I'll inform Powerflash about the new arrival."

With a rather heavy heart Searchlight led the way. He opened a comms to Powerflash, "We're set. You got a cell?"

Dead End said to Conflangration, "Aw, go burn yourself. We're all doomed anyway. But if you think of picking a fight with a Stunticon, you will take all five of us on." Dead End doesn't know why he bothers to say that. But deep down he is still a Stunticon, and he won't have others picking a fight with one of their own.

Conflagration moved towards the wall nearest Dead End.

"If you're trying to make me think you're a big, tough mech, you're failing miserably," Wildrider told Conflagration. "'I got caught', you say. Caught doing what, slag-eater? I'm in lockup because my team attacked an entire city, and I'm in solitary because they caught me in the middle of digging a guard's brain module out through his optic socket with a stylus. Don't think you can scare me."

"Go easy on Bumblebee, Clampdown. What charges are there against him? What did he do?" Searchlight, leading the procession while they entered the building. Sensors confirmed his identity as blast doors by blast doors opened.

"Welcome to Altihex prisons." Windcharger said at the end of the blast doors, not looking too interested, until he saw Bumblebee. "Well, what do we have here? Bumblebee?"

"Yea, Bumblebee" an exasperated Searchlight said. When will someone answer his questions without getting interupted? "Which raises the question, once again. What did he do???"

"Put me out of my misery? I doubt you could." Dead End growled to Conflangration. He may be prepared to die but it ain't gonna be by this freak. And he won't take insults towards his team-mates. "Answer Wildrider, freak."

"I set light to several retirment homes for old mechs , a hospital, a shopping center, 3 office buildings, a hotel and a police barracks. My favourite thing though was to stalk a mech to eliminte all hjis friends and acquaintances, kill them , turn them agianst him etc. Then scoop him off the street and burn him sslowly to death.

Hound and Dirge made up the rear of the prison transport, the scout a short distance back from the main group and Dirge a bit further back and up in altitude. Both of them had been silent during the whole trip, brooding over their own unsettled thoughts. The trip for Hound had brought back unpleasant memories of his own capture and reprograming that happened not too long ago. He still couldn't be sure if all of his memories had been correted after the incident, but he tried not to dwell on the matter. Thinking about it only caused more uncertanty...

He wondered momentarily what Dirge was thinking about, not recalling the former Decepticon having ever been captured and brought here, but then he could have been recalling something else, much like Hound had been. Perhaps that time when he had been captured right before the Quintessons had forced them off Cybertron. Hound had been comotose for most of it, hauled around by Aero Blade, but he vaugely recalled an upset dirge somewhere between his phasing on and offline at the time.

Perhaps he would ask Dirge about it later, but it didn't do any good for either of them to be distracted at the moment, they still had to keep an eye on the area. While Clampdown, Bumbelbee, and the others were occupied with business at the gate, Dirge and Hound took up sentry possitions at the back of the group again, keeping an eye out for anyone that might be approaching the group.

Wildrider grinned, then let out a laugh that sounded more like a bark than anything else.

"You're a mech after my own spark," he told Conflagration. "But if you ever get out of here, ditch the fire thing. It's patterns like that that get you captured."

He snarled. "Just ask us. Me and Dead End, we're here because of our bad habit...we listened to Motormaster one too many times."

"Well, I wasn't there," Clampdown said, "so take this with a grain of salt. He's charged with violating the Protihex Accords and blowing up a chunk of the city. Personally I don't see how he could have done it, but like I said, I wasn't there."

He glanced over his shoulder at Dirge and Hound, then shrugged. "We're just doing our jobs, Searchlight. Lay off."

"Verily I do suggest we doth all calm down," Kingbolt told the group as a whole.

"Yes. I admit. I destroyed a chunk of a city... while I was chasing a psychopath! I love how people leave that part out. It's not my fault Bugbite set up shop in Prothiex. It was mainly an accident as far as the destruction goes. The ship we stole from Bugbite drifted into the building."

A red semi drove up to the gates. Bumblebee turned, "What's Optimus doing here?"

The semi stopped and transformed into a Prime-esque Robot Mode. "The name is Pyro, kid. I was sent by your comrade Fullfang to keep an eye on you."

Bumblebee turned, "Where is he?"

"Wouldn't say." Pyro crouched down. "Is Bumblebee's cell in order? I want to make sure nothing happens to him while he is here. I've been sent as a... bodyguard so to speak."

"You BLOW UP A CHUNK OF A CITY???" Windcharger stared at his fellow Minibot in disbelief. "Why can't I ever get to do something cool like that?"

"Hush it, Windy." Searchlight said. He said to Pyro "Now that we know Bumblebee's, ah, crime... We should proceeed to his cell. Don't worry, Pyro, I won't let anything happen to Bumblebee. Come on, I'll show you to the cell. Used to belong to Misfire, but it is in good condition."

Windcharger said to Powerflash via communications, "Okay... the prisoner has arrived and is being taken to his cell." He then followed Searchlight and the others while using his magnetic powers to close the numerous blast doors.

Searchlight said to the convoy behind Bumblebee (Clampdown, Dirge etc) "Follow me." as they walked towards the dimly lit cells. On the way, they passed large solitary cells with the names 'KICKBACK', 'BOMBSHELL, 'MOTORMASTER', 'DRAG STRIP', 'THRUST', 'BREAKDOWN', 'DEADEND', 'CONFLANGRATION',
'WILDRIDER', 'SHR--NEL' and more. However, the door to the cell maked 'SHR--NEL' is blown off and the cell itself is filled with burn marks.

Searchlight cautioned the other Autobots, "Don't try to talk to any of them. They bite." As the prisoners snarled and growled as the procession passed through.

Ah, but there's the rob on't...

Breakdown crouched in one corner of his cell with his arms wrapped over his lowered head. He had remained in that position for over eight orns, since the guards had restored the lighting array and prevented him smashing it again by fixing up a simple forcefield; they had done the same to the monitor camera.

They were watching him.

----------------------------------------------------------------
In contrast, Drag Strip was active, pacing his nearby cell, waiting for an excuse - any excuse.

Beyond the opaque, shimmering haze of the door shield stood Backhand, just far enough to one side as to be undetectable by the inmate.

"Don't ask me," Wildrider told Conflagration. "I was just following orders." He growled. "Well, no more of that for me, I'll tell you that much. When I get out of here, Wildrider is his own mech."

Clampdown and Kingbolt followed Searchlight into the complex, with the former giving Pyro a suspicious glance and the latter looking around in veiled dismay at the mass of criminals that were held in the cells.

"I swear, Twin Twist," Cliffjumper said as he kicked aside some rubble by the gate. The minibot stood stiff, glass gun at hand. His optics stayed tense and his face plate remained strained. He looked down again, trying to find another bit of rubble to kick. "This 'correctional facility' needs to get locked up, blown up, and plowed over with all the Decepticons inside."

"Heh, yeah, but that would get rid of half the fun. Where do I come in?" Twin Twist smirked. "Why so agitated?"

"This, all this, is pointless," Cliffjumper said, shaking his head as he kicked one more piece far into the distance.

"That was a doozy alright," Twin Twist commented.

"Yeah, yeah," the red 'bot replied. "You know, more and more 'bots are letting their sparks grow soft. It's a wonder cogs like mine are even still functioning."

"Yes, you're quite the prophet," Twin Twist said as he glanced over at Kingbolt.

"Alright, can it," Cliffjumper said as he turned up and faced the other Autobot. "There's a reason why all the big exo's still think we need a place like this, and the reason's all in there. Every grease stain needs to get polished off. But if you ask me," he gave a quick look at the passing Dirge, "you can never fully filter out dirty oil."

"Ya know, some'd say the same thing about me," the other Autobot said. "I don't exactly have the cleanest track record. Primus knows how many times they've tried to throw me in here. 'Wreck 'n' rule' doesn't really go over well with the new order."

"Different circumstances," the minibot waved his hand. "Look, I'm gonna head back inside. I'll catch up more later. Don't regret any of that past stuff, or slag, even any future stuff. You were doing the right thing every time: taking down the 'cons."

Cliffjumper nodded slightly, gave a look back and a thumbs up to the larger 'bot, and headed back into the prison.

"Who said I regretted it?" the Wrecker smiled.

Backhand turned just a fraction so that his back was squarely to the corridor overview camera and checked a small access panel on the inside of his right forearm. Satisfied, he stepped back, drew a taserstun and announced himself to the communicator beside the door: "Guard 2254385 - Backhand - vocals ident."

"Ident confirmed. Please be aware that you are entering a high-security solitary confinement cell," replied the centralised control computer in rather feminised tones.

Backhand bit back a sarcastic reply and ordered, instead, "Lower shield." He could see Drag Strip stop pacing to glare at him and said, "Routine scan. You know the drill, raceboy."

Searchlight mentally noted Cliffjumper's arrival as they passed the dimly lit corridor. Finally they reached a cell with the name 'MISFIRE' striped off and replaced with a scrawled 'BUMBLBEE'.

As Windcharger opened the door, Searchlight said to the party, "now this cell recently belonged to Misfire. Until recently. It should accommodate Bee quite nicely until he gets released. Rest assured, Bumblebee, that Windy and I will try to do all in our power to free you."

"These politicians are jokes." Windcharger said. "Imprisoning an Autobot? Sometimes I think we're better off in the War. No need for this corrupt politics."

"Don't let Downshift hear you." Searchlight said. "Speaking of whom, Cliffjumper, you better inform Downshift and Powerflash about the new arrival."

Kingbolt saw Twin Twist's glance, but wasn't sure quite what to make of it. The other Autobot's violent antics as a Wrecker had earned him a reputation as something of a thug, and that made the knightly Autobot wary of him.

But verily, his work and a Templar's work are akin. He and I doth both spend our lives ridding the world of evildoers. Alas, his technique be far too crude for the Order to do aught but frown upon him.

"You can say that again, Windcharger," Cliffjumper muttered out. His faceplate grew even more strained than before he re-entered the prison. "By the pit, don't even get me started on how politically-inclined Cybertron has become."

He heard Dead End's cries - something that caused a disconnect between his angry countenance and his borderline sadistic content.

It's only wrong if they had sparks worth caring for, he chuckled inwardly. He clenched his fist and sent the side of it slamming against outside of the door.

"Yeah, go ahead: beg!" shouted the now somewhat rabid Cliffjumper. His optics widened, his mouth opening wider and wider with every phrase. Animalistic, if it wasn't for the door blocking him from Dead End, he would have probably done something that even he would later regret - maybe. "Shove it up your afterburner. We won't be taking anything from you unless it's the broken gears from your servos. Now lock a piston down your vocal processor."

"Now if it were up to me," he began to calm down as he faced his fellow Autobots, moving his hands as if he were dusting himself off, "we'd do both him and us a favor and pull the plug on him."

He paused, raising his voice again, "On all of them."

As his voice resonated, Cliffjumper turned to Searchlight.

"Alright, I'm on it," he said tersely.

Before walking away, he turned to Bumblebee.

"That show wasn't for you," he said coldly to his fellow minibot. "Wrong place, wrong time. I got it."

Cliffjumper walked off, his feet treading a little heavier and echoing a little more deeply than normally expected for a 'bot his size.

Cliffjumper came in and saw Downshift and Searchlight standing before him.

"New guest's checked in," Cliffjumper said, distinctly facing the former, his back not-so-slightly to the latter. "He's a friendl- he's one of ours. Traitorous and reckless charges. Name: Bumblebee. We put him up in Misfire's old cell. Searchlight thought I should let both of you know."

He now turned briefly to Powerflash, glaring in his brief glance before he turned back to Downshift.

"Further instructions, Downshift?"

Twin Twist only stood there, catching Kingbolt's glance-back.

Yeah, yeah, he thought. You're one of the good ones, I'll give you that. I still don't like you. Pristine and clean is nice, but what's the point of a fight if you can't leave your signature there when you're gone?

"Hmph," Twin Twist muttered as he crossed his arms.

Windcharger said to Cliffjumper, "I'm glad we agree. All of us." By all he was referring to all the Autobots that stauchly followed Optimus Prime and his efforts to make a peaceful, non-corrupt Cybertron. It still disgusted the Minibot what politics had twisted peace into.

Searchlight, meanwhile, watched as Cliffjumper walked away. He felt the same towards the politics. Politics never did me good. Not when I was on the run with Bumblebee and Blaster and the other Throttlers. Not when I was captured by the RAAT. Not when I was turned into a toy car. Not when I was blasted to bits by Starscream. He shaked his head to get rid of the thoughts. Now is not the time for this.

"Well, Bumblebee, now you are Prisoner number 337826. Please enter the cell."
Primus I hate this, sorry, Bee. Searchlight turned to face Clampdown, "I need you to sign here to verify that Bee has been into the cell."

"He'll need special security arrangements, of course," Downshift told Cliffjumper. He noticed the deference with which the smaller Autobot treated him, but did his best to ignore it. Challenging Powerflash's authority during off-hours was one thing, but he would never do it when there was work to be done. "The 'Bots we lock up here catch a lot of flak and the last thing we need right now is another riot."

He turned to Powerflash. "Is there anything else you'd like, sir?"

"That's quite enough," Clampdown told the assembled Autobots. "I don't care what you think of the arrangements at this facility. You're soldiers in the Autobot army and you're damn well expected to act like it. Gripe all you want when you're off-duty, but right now we all have work to do."

As he turned to Searchlight and scrawled his name and identity code down on the other Transformer's datapad, he could feel Kingbolt staring accusingly at his back.

Yeah, buddy, I get it. I'm no better than they are sometimes, but the difference is...at least I try to rise above my baser instincts.

"Hmm.. I agree to a point. BUT there is one thing I do need." The backside of his hand opened up and a small claw like weapon revealed itself. "I need to keep this taser for medical reasons. I'm getting worn out, so I need this taser to revitalize my charges before I go kaput. In fact..."

Two holes opened up on his arm and he placed the claw in the holes. "Stand back." He pressed a trigger and a shock ran through the claw and his body shook. A voice on his body announced: "Fuel Cells and Standby Systems at Full Capacity." He pulled the claw out and it went back into his hand. "It's mainly a side effect from a war. I've yet to go under the procedure to fix it."

Bumblebee stared, "Funny thing, I've seen something like this before. Your energy processors are failing. How long has this been going on?"

Pyro turned, "Since Unicron's first strike on Cybertron. Why?"

Bumblebee stared, "And how often do you require charges?"

"About once every 24 hours at the most." Pyro smirked. "It's been used as a weapon several times, but it can't do any damage, just stun at it's highest setting."

Some of us have better things to do than rehashing tired memories and moaning about how much life sucks. Like me, for instance.

Fried wires and melted circutry prevented even the nuances of speach.But he was far too cold at the moment to even try to speak.Cindersuar,was logically speaking,in the nuthouse.And stuck in his monster form.He didn't recall getting caught,as he'd fried his chips for those long ago.He was just mad he got caught.He was also rather too cold for his tastes,and whoever put him in here was going to pay.Along with anyone else who got in his way.Of course, he had to figure out how to get the flames rumbling in his stomach again, and his natural weapons online.

"Alright gentlebots," Cliffjumper said to the group as he came in. Grabbing everyone's attention, he transformed back into robot mode. "Sorry to bust the oil-tank chat session. Downshift says this prisoner here needs special accomodations. Since this captain-look-a-like seems pretty intent on staying here," he said, pointing to Pyro,"we'll need you and, heh, since you're pretty much a walking artillery set, Warpath, to take special care of him.

He had managed to look at all the others at this point, that is, except at Bumblebee.

"Heh, how about some plain Cybertronian there, Kingbolt?" Cliffjumper couldn't help but crack a smile.

"If you wanna talk to him, save your servos the motor oil in going to the break room and look whatever you want up. Rulepad ain't gonna tell you anything special."

He didn't hate or even dislike Powerflash, though - he just didn't like him. His smile, however, faded as he heard Bumblebee's voice.

Downshift piped up. "So, what, you think we should coddle the crims, set 'em up with shrinks or something so that they can be rehabbed? In Templar Fantasyland maybe, but things don't work that way in the real world. As soon as we let the scum out they'll go right back to their old habits, whether that's breaking into convenience stores or fighting for the Decepticons. Mechs don't change, and if they do it's certainly not for the better."

To Twin Twist he said, "Well, they're definitely in the right place, then."

Pyro looked at Cindersaur, "Psshh... Fire is NOTHING." He charged up his hand which became engulfed in sparks, and his faceplate covered his mouth again. "Hmm..." He raised his taser-knuckle at the Firecon. "Give me the word, Windcharger, and he'll be in a nice little nap."

Hun-grr had dozed off as the shuttle headed towards Altihex. When it came to a sudden stop, he jumped to his feet with a clatter that brought snickers from the other terrorcons.

Hearing Shrapnel make a bad joke on his name he bared 2 sets of teeth in his direction. The other terrorcons began to get to their own feet as he spoke.

"Well then lets feed then. Decepticons attack"

Without any other warning the terrorcons rushed out of the shuttle and did what they did best. In other words they shot and clawed anything that wasnt a decepticon.

"Yes, Hun-Grrr, let's rip, maim and blast, blast!" Shrapnel said to the Terrorcon. I always hated this bloody slagging place, place. Astrotrain wants us to be a distraction, but I'm here to kill, kill, kill!Giving out a high pitched and high volumed warcry, "REEEEEEEEEEEEE!" He swooped down in robot mode at the three Autobots clustered near the Sharkticon pool, his wrist mounted weapons firing and antennas crackling with electricity.

Searchlight was still conversing with Cliffjumper and Road Rocket, occupied with guarding the exit, when the Decepticons attacked. He used his gun and blasted Blot, but Shrapnel's war cry and subsequent fire soon caught his attention.

"Slag. return fire!" he shouted. To his communicator he said "Mayday, mayday, to all Autobots, we are under attack, I repeat. We are under attack."

"Not gonna happen, pal, pal." Shrapnel said as he used his electrical powers to overload the communicator, even as he lands and faces the (slightly shorter than him) Autobots. "Searchlight, light. I always hated you, you."

However, Shrapnel was a little too late, and the message was still sent to the Prison. Searchlight threw his communicator, well, what's left of it, and took out his gun. "Welcome back, Insecticon. I hate you too, so nothing personal." Searchlight tried to sound tough.

"Your eagerness is appreciated, but I need Powerflash's permission to use force. To be honest, with the episode with Dead End there, I am itching myself to beat him up." Windcharger said to Pyro and Warpath.

After a moment of watching the Firecon he said "But, ah, to hell with regulations." the impulsive Autobot said when he heard Cindersaur's speech. His hands glowed purple with magnetic power, and he used it to bend the pipes in the cell, intending to wrap Cindersaur with it. "Clampdown, please set the cyrogenic temperature in the cell down a notch or two." he pointed to a panel.

Then, explosions were heard outside.

Twin Twist had only stood silent through all the commotion between the prisoners and the other guards. His head floated around aimlessly as he held his gun at his side, his trigger finger twitching every few nanos. His head perked up as he heard the noise outside, and Searchlight's message had confirmed his hopes.

"Sounds like Powerflash's going to be glad he didn't pistol whip the Wreckers," Twin Twist smiled as he suddenly turned to Clampdown. His optics flashed an intense blue. "This place is way too hot. Time for action, 'bots!"

"I knew this place would've been better as a parking lot," Cliffjumper shouted after he had managed to jump out of the way of Shrapnel's blast.

As he got himself up, he noticed the Insecticon land before them. The top of his face plate narrowed. Noticing Searchlight temporarily distracted the Deceipticon, he pulled out his glass gun and fired a few shots at the Insecticon's midsection and wrist area, hoping to disable, or at least distract, him long enough.

No time for vendettas, Searchlight - least not yours.

Transforming instantly after firing his weapon, he blasted towards the Insecticon, and, changing back to robot mode after intense acceleration, Cliffjumper landed, crouched down, and used the momentum from the drive and the force from the ground to propel himself - more specifically his left shoulder - towards Shrapnel.

Then the explosions started,making the forcefield around the front of his cage waver.He chuckled.

"Death, doom, chaos and destruction, Flee autobots the Terrorcons are upon you."

"Stop talking about it Sinnertwin and start being about it."

"Yes Hun-grr"

Hun-grr would have shaken his heads if they werent too busy feeding. And it was a very important thing to make sure that hes stomach was full. Tearing through another unamed red autobot, he noticed that the prison was starting to go into lock down. That wouldnt do then he and his boys will miss part of the feast.

"Blot, Rippersnapper, make us a door. Cutthroat, Sinnertwin its dinner time."

Rippersnapper, looked at the other terrorcon with disgust. Why did he always get stuck with the stinker. Blot on the other hand couldnt care less, Hun-grr had given him an order and that was all that mattered. Pulling out his acid gun, he aimed it for the nearest secton of prision wall and watched it start to eat through. After another look of disgust, Rippersnapper joined in, using his altmodes claws to tear chunks out of the Wall.

Launching himself into the air, Cutthroat laughed as he shredded through a couple of autobots that had been foolish enough to get into his way. Swooping through the milling prison guards, he sent them all to the pit, slicing them to ribbons with tail, wing and claw.

"Seriously....a flaming cab?'Hat in Unicrons name are you thinking?Here boy!"He called to Cindersaur,and gave a low whistle.The animalistic decepticon looked to his partner and all the others,and back at Pyro.

"Fires good."Cindersaur cackled,dribbling more molten metal.He stalked around,running his claws along the trailer.Being hit with the cab had hurt him,but the flames eased any aches and his long frozen joints. "Pyro faces Cinder.Fire on Fire.Bet I'm more a pyro then you."He dropped to all fours,and came foward slowly and deliberatly.He spat molten metal at all the nearest cages,and turned his attention to Pyro once again.His internal flamethrowers came together,and blasted a concentrated stream at the gaurd.

Downshift noticed the odd look that the unfamiliar femme gave to one of his guards, but he was distracted from his suspicions by the alarm that started to ring.

"Not a part of your drill this time?" he asked Powerflash. But he was already drawing his sidearms and charging for the door as he said it. He saw Backhand heading off on his own, but really couldn't care less where the slagheap was going.

"All available guard units, head for your assigned checkpoint stations. All combat units, head for the perimeter immediately." Downshift pulled down a download from the security network, then winced. "Be warned that we' have at least one enemy gestalt unit present in the assault force."

Dammit, this isn't going to end well, Downshift thought as he charged toward the engagement zone.

He looked at the readings, then shook his head. "It's down as far as it'll go," he reported.

"F-Ahhh!" Shrapnel, blinded, did not see Cliffjumper coming and was knocked down by the Autobot towards a wall. He rubbed his eyes while firing his electrical bolts in the general direction.

"Thanks, Cliff," Searchlight said to the Minibot. "But Shrapnel is not really down yet. We need to take care of the Terrorcons first, that's our main priority right now. Watch for airstrikes..." Searchlight said as he picked up a gun and aimed it at Hun-Grrr's back and fired.

Blot and Rippersnapper were happily tearing and melting into the walls of the prison when they came under rocket attack. Rippersnapper, happy to have something better to destroy then a mere wall, immediatly transformed back into his mech mode and opened fire with his cyclone gun.

Shrapnel knew that the Autobot that looked like Wheeljack was in reality Slicer. When he fired upon the Decepticons, Shrapnel took the liberty of pretending to get hurt and broke the chase upon Searchlight. Fool, fool. He said as Searchlight opened the door.

This allowed him to focus his attention on Cliffjumper. He transformed into robot mode, caught his shrapnel gun in hand and said to the Autobot. "Hello, I guess your friend has a bit confusion on his alligiances, what's with him, him?" While in reality he knew it was Bombshell's pranks.

Crossblades had been on patrol on the outskirts of the prison when the Decepticons launched their attack. If there was one thing he hated it was being late to a battle. As he descended into the courtyard in his helicopter mode he noticed the Decepticon Powermaster Darkwing occupied with Downshift, giving him an attack angle from behind. He locked on to Darkwing, activating his electro-jammers and cloaking device, while firing a pair of missiles. This won't take long!

Overload climbed out from under some debris, which had fallen on him during the Decepticons initial assault. Uninjured, he transformed into his semi mode. Ignoring the Autobots and Dirge, he sped down the corridor toward the Stunticons, intent on ramming them.

As Dead End came at him, Dirge didn't try to dodge, waiting for the Decepticon to come and run into him. When they connected, Dirge held his ground and wrapped his arms around Dead end, trying to just hold him there.

Hound immediately turned his attention back to the scuffle with his friend, running over to assist Dirge by attempting to grab Dead End's arms, hoping to force them behind his back and immobalize him.

It broke his Spark to abandon the rest, but Backhand hoped, once this Primus damned alert had calmed down, it might only be temporarily. He reached out and turned off the glow, plunging the area into absolute darkness.

Fumbling at the outer door with one hand, he drew his machine gun with the other. He liked the weapon; it made a substantial noise and covered for his less-than-perfect marksmanship. Hopefully, though, he looked intimidating enough to any unarmed prisoners trying to escape not to need to use it...

The two Decepticon Powermasters then formed to become one of the most powerful jets in Cybertronian history: Dreadwing!

"Cool, cool" Shrapnel said as Dreadwing combined. "I'll deal with you later Minibot." he said to Cliffjumper as he flew up in insect mode and towards to top of the prison. "Altihex DIES TONIGHT, TONIGHT!" as he threw his barrage of shock grenades to random parts on the roof.

"Yes, yes, we should do that."Searchlight said to Slicer, not aware of the other Autobot's suspicious movements. He was still trying to fight Bombshell's mind control, whilst trying to avoid injuring Cliffjumper or the others. He looked as Downshift, Powerflash and Crossblades joined the fray. They'll be fine. he mused. But he won't have Cliffjumper thinking he betrayed them and sent a message to the Minibot "Cliff, sorry... I just can't control myself. I... need a time out."

Windcharger was hit in the face and several other parts by Cindersaur's fire. As halon gases descended, a dangerous glint appeared in his eye and he shouted "C'mon, bring it on!" without regard for his own safety, the Minibot transformed into vehicle mode and tackled the Firecon into the cell, slamming Cindersaur into the half-melted cell wall. The wall gave way and both mechs flew out of the prison and into the courtyard.

Dead End was immobilized by Dirge and Hound. Sure, more Decepticons are joining the fray, but the 'Cons are low on energy, and other than the Firecons they are unarmed.

And they had no weapons, a fact that was impressed deeply on Dead End when Pyro's weapon barrage hit him.

"Ach, Dirge... You know me, I'm suicidal. Don't... Hold... Anything... Back..." Dead End said as he slammed his head into Dirge's, trying to stun the Seeker into letting him go. But with Hound nearby, he's not sure he can get far...

Bombshell has recovered from his seizure, and rose from the burning ground to see Overload charging at the Stunticons. "Drag Strip! Look out!" the Insecticon shouted.

His mind contact with Searchlight came online again after the short disturbance. Apparently I'm too hungry to maintain this thing. Bombshell transformed into insect mode, reentered his cell, and begun feeding.

One thing you could not buy from Backhand was a code-key; even Backhand was not that stupid. Drag Strip's wild laughter subsided into a feral growl as he thumped the forcefield controls beside Smite's door which...was...not...going to...beat...him!

The sustained assault was having an effect. Drag Strip's yellow fists crashed into the panel just twice more and he was rewarded with Breakdown's triumphant yell as he leapt for the ex-Templar.

In the other five cells, the inmates kept silent and watched. Decepticons they were, and the victim-to-be Autobot, but no one dared interfere.

Clampdowns flash-bang left Flamefeather slightly concussed and very confused.And it had rattled him.But he still could not embrace his past anger and feed off of it.Even with the chaos around him,and his body wrapped in flame,his head was cool as ice.There still was the matter of the four or five Clampdowns.

"Pain is pain."He rattled his head,and slammed his arms against his chest. "And do you have something against it Clampd'on?"He brought up his arms, circling the flames around with him.Again,the slag seemed to jump.The gas would not put it out,not with the now gaping hole the former cell of Cindersaurs. "Let's dance."He swooped at the Clampdowns,trying to plant one hand on his shoulder,and the other on his gun.

The fall and the roll had left Cindersaur in an even fouler mood.He turned to his prey,and stalked towards Windcharger.He regurgitated more metal,and fired several balls at the minibot.They acted like shrapnel grenades and threw out super heated shards when they popped.To follow suit,he quickly carpeted the area in flames,so his prey had little choice but to run at him.

The various terrorcons were busy rampaging around the area, when Hun-grr decided to bring it to the next level. After all they couldn't let the seekers do all the damage, not when it would mean less food for them.

"Terrorcons its time to destroy them.."

Activating Abominus program.

Cutthroat, in the middle of slashing through another group of autobots, heard the command from his leader and swore. While it was unwise to disobey hun-grr, it just wasnt the same wasting bots as Abominus. Slicing through

Blot on the other hand stopped what he was doing and ran over to hun-grr without question. An order was an order after all.

Sinnertwin tore his way towards hun-grr with all of the tactical finese of a charging rhino. It was time for the real killing to start.

Rippersnapper looked up from trying to tear a hole into the prison with his bare hands and swore. It was bad enough that he had to work with blot but now he had to combine with him. If it wasn't for the power that he would gain to crush the inferior autobots then he wouldnt do it at all.

As the various terrorcons came together and connected with Hun-grr, he could feel his mind amplify and echo as the lust for destruction that was common to all of them focused onto its self. Suddenly nothing else was important other then destroying the city around him and tearing apart the autobot. Thats when he knew that it was complete. He was no longer hun-grr he was something else something far more potent and destructive.

He was Abominus.

"A lot of fancy talk," Downshift told the now-combined Dreadwing, "but all I see is a bigger target."

The Omnibot fired several more laser blasts up at the combined Powermasters. However, his attention was quickly grabbed by what had to be the biggest target of them all: Abominus. In no mood to trifle with the massive Decepticon, he simply fired an energy net in the combiner's direction.

Despite that, the Firecon's increased output of heat and flames was getting to him...and to his equipment. Despite still having nearly half a clip of ammunition, the guard's rifle died on him, internal components warping due to the heat.

"Well, that's just wonderful," he grumbled.

But seeing the Firecon's weakness and knowing he had to take advantage of it, Clampdown threw caution to the wind and charged toward the burning Decepticon. He cocked his fist back and threw a punch at the unsteady, seemingly barely-conscious Flamefeather, but the heat around the Decepticon was such that he had no idea if he'd even come close to hitting him.

Wildrider took Pyro's attack full on in the back, and was knocked to the ground.

"Oh, good show, Autobot scum," he said as he rolled back up to his feet. "Shooting an unarmed prisoner in the back? Oh, they're going to pin a medal on you for that one."

The Stunticon's optics narrowed dangerously, and he charged at Pyro like a football player trying to barrel through a line of defenders. "Well, onto your corpse, anyway."

"Understood," Soundwave replied to Shrapnel. Silently he added, I really must remember to have Bombshell eliminated. Preferably in a way that points to Gigatron. His abilities are a threat to the stability of the faction.

Motormouth screeched to a halt

"WAs on a transport run to prison, Cons everywhere barely got away without scratching my paint........"

(OOC: Sorry for the lateness... Internet and school is over, so I'll be posting regularly now. Originally I wanted Windy to die. But I grew to like him, so here goes the reformat.)

In the Shadows

Blink.

Where am I?

The last thing I remembered was the crisis at Altihex... There was me showing Clamps and Twin Twist and Warpath around... And there was Bumblebee... And Dead End and Pyro... Then, there was the attack...

Ah yes. I rammed Cindersaur out. He shot fireballs at me before...

Darkness.

Curse me. I'm so clumsy and impulsive. My life is flashing before me... There's the time when I got to the Ark... When I went at Megatron... When I got beaten up in Autobot City... I'm gonna die soon... If Primus would give me a second chance... Please, I will...

I will...

Huh?


Windcharger's wish seemed to have come true as his optics flickered to life in the wet ground surrounded with Sharkticon bodies. The spark in his broken chest flickered back to life.

He didn't know it but an upgrade installed by Wheeljack some time ago is an experimental automatic reformat system. Deemed unsuccesesful, it was left in Windy's body. It actually worked fine if the victim had sufficient damage. Like now. And it is doing its job--albeit painfully--healing and changing Windcharger from his Pontiac Firebird form into a larger vehicle, drawing in Sharkticon parts for material... Windcharger's eyes glowed bright red as his still changing and new body stood up...
______________

Shrapnel landed at the mess Cindersaur and Windcharger made. Let Abominus and the jets have fun, fun. I am in the mood for sushi, sushi! as he started eating a Sharkticon. Suddenly a Sharkticon body rose up by itself and smacked the insecticon on the face. A figure encrusted in smokes from the recent explosions moved closer to Shrapnel...

Searchlight had left Slicer behind and entered Powerflash's office under Bombshell's command. He shut down the main power grid.

Soon he had placed the prison in total darkness, and all the force fields--are gone.

Smite glanced at Kingbolt as his thumbs probed the edge Breakdowns optic sockets pushing him back.

"It is true Brother I took the oath but I was selected because of my piety and zeal to become an Avenging Angel one of the chosen few that carried out Primus' work where all else failed."

Smite swayed exerting pressure on Breakdown trying to keep him back


For a longtime I carried out my missions without qualm but increasingly they troubled me for what I did seemed venal and sinful although Elder Triton assured me that i was following the path of Primus. I was plagued by doubts my conscience sorely troubled me. One day I could stand it no more. "

His fingers slipping closer to Breakdowns eyes as oil from his wound covere Breakdown's face.


"The Elder tasked me to eliminate some so called sinners who had strayed from the true path. This was before the Schism, but they were not wrong they were innocent peaceful souls who saw the doctrine differently but they were still creatures of Primus.

I remember little of what happened next when I regained my senses I was surrounded by Tritons' dead hench mechs and he was gone never to be seen again. For this crime I was convicted. Since then I suffer these rages that i cannot control I cannot control myself.

I fear that Triton corrupted me inserted some Beserker programming to help overcome my doubts. Normally I am safe doing my penitence , my only weapons are my words. Help me brother, for I fear I can no longer help myself."

Flamefeather suddenly felt rather heavy,and felt himself slammed into the ground.Cindersaur stood on top of him,drooling molten metal,and the beast grunted and held his ground as Clampdown slammed his fist into him.

"Nice save..."Flamefeather hissed,pain shooting through him as one of his partners claws ground into him.

"Of courssse."The oven mouthed Cindersaur said,scraping the wounded Firecon under his body,and taking a protective stance.From within the bodies shadows,Flamefeathers face again changed,eyes glowing white again.

"This isn't over Clamp.."He shuddered out as Flamefeather came back. "Get me out of here Cinder...."He went into stasis,looking like no more then a charred body,a glowing red coal.

"In a minute."He turned to Clampdown. "Run.Or Burn."The flames hissed and shot out of his teeth,as molten metal dripped down his lower jaw.

"Slaggitslaggitslaggit!" Backhand tried to crawl away from the looming shape of Powerflash (forget Abominus!), but at least he saw the two extra missiles swinging out to target him. Since he was still holding his machine gun, he let rip, blowing them both apart; shrapnel studded the air.

Solitary, corridor and Smite's cell

When their cells and the emergency doors opened, the five other Decepticon prisoners made a break for it, dashing away from the fighting.

Along the corridor, Drag Strip glared at Kingbolt, pulling himself to his feet by using his 'sword' as support. His HUD informed him that a basic repair would be complete within astroseconds, but further work would be needed to replace the crushed hydraulics line. He snarled, hating the thought of having to suffer the indignity of a limp slowing him down.

At least Kingbolt did not seem in a hurry to help Smite.

When the fingers left his neck, Breakdown reeled for an instant, then Smite lunged for his face in turn. He struggled to remove the oily fingers digging into his optical sockets as he was borne backwards across the cell. With his hands clamped on Smite's wrists, he screamed in real terror, his vision beginning to dim.

Abominus watched as the two autobots took out one of their fellow companions. By his reckoning they must have been decepticons, since only decepticons attacked autobots. So with lack of a better target to rip apart, he started on the only thing presented it self.

Running up to one of the prisons walls, he started to tear an opening with his free hand.

"Nay, brother," Kingbolt told Smite, sympathy in his voice. "There be no way for me to render aid upon thee. I doth be a mere warrior of Primus, and I have no alchemy that would cure what ails you. Nay, the only help I could effect would be a mercifully quick death, and I shall not do that."

He took his sword and shield off of his back. "But I shall acquit my duties and aid in vanquishing the villians that threaten you."

Turning to the now-rising Drag Strip he fell into a fighting stance and said, "Have at thee, knave!"

Like a punch-drunk fighter, Clampdown was far too battered and heat-damaged to even begin to understand what Cindersaur was saying. He did understand the fire-blackened purple badge that the Firecon wore, though, and made a halfhearted attempt to headbutt him in the face.

Soundwave transformed as soon as Slicer moved him out into the open air. As soon as he was standing he droned, "Laserbeak, Buzzsaw: eject. Operation: air support."

Buzzsaw ejected, transformed and perched atop his commander's shoulder, presumably waiting for any enemies that he could set his beak to.

Soundwave half-turned his head to look at Slicer. "Follow me. We obviously have allies hard at work in here, but if this escape is to succeed we need to collect our comrades, organize them and extract them before Autobot reinforcements arrive."

With that, the communications officer stalked into the prison and toward the solitary confinement wing. His concussion rifle and micromissile battery both stood at the ready.

As the lights went out, Boomstick couldn't help but smile.

Windcharger's new body, while still unstable, was larger and more powerful than his former body. That and added Sharkticon parts added to his magnetic powers. Both his hands glowed purple and metallic pieces swirled around him in a vortex. "You sowed the seeds of your own destruction, Shrapnel. Now reap. the. whirlwind."

Overload roared around a corner, nearly overturning, coming face to face with the pair of Firecons and Clampdown.

Dead End having been effectively downed, Hound and Dirge left him on the floor as he no-longer presented a threat. Instead their attention went back to the rest of the chaos, namely Clampdown who appeared to be having the most trouble with the Cindersaur and Flamefeather.

"This is gonna be nasty," Hound commented as he readied himself.

"Always is," Dirge answered, taking a similar stance as Hound. When they were both ready, just after Overload had made his move, Hound and Dirge both rushed the firecons, intent on first making sure Flamefeather wouldn't be getting up again and making the situation even worse once more.

The form of a large Autobot jet was headed in fast towards the detention center, that of Wing Saber coming to answer the call to help. As he closed in on the facility, the form of Abominous became immediately apparent, the sight of a Decepticon combiner serving to irritate Wing Saber as approached.

There's probably more inside already. Better try to make this fast... Wing Saber decided grimly. The only thing he had which would suit those ends, unfortunately, were his anti-matter missles. At least they'll go to a good use this time...

Waiting until in close enough to insure a good shot, approaching Abominous from behind, Wing Saber took careful aim and fired off a single missle, homed in on the combiner's signal.

Shrapnel sent a bolt of lighting at Windcharger. Windcharger's tornado wall deflected it though. The old Windcharger would just rush at Shrapnel like a madman, but recklessness is what got him nearly killed.

Time to use a different tactic, he thought. He sent the debris he is levitating at Shrapnel while shouting "Electricity helps magneticity to stick!"

Before the Insecticon realized what is happening, the magnetized objects flew at Shrapnel's electircally charged body. "What-no, no!" he shouted. Large pieces of debris hit him, and he is forced to fly away. He took out his shrapnel launcher and sent a missile towards Windcharger. The missile split into smaller pieces and the deadly metals streaked to the ex-Minibot.

Windcharger focused and as the shrapnel shards neared his face they are engulfed in a purple aura. It was like if time stopped.

"Looking for some pain, you heroic? Plenty of that I got in store!" said Thrust, and fired a missile at Bumblebee.


(OOC: Wondering why Thrust's acting insane?)


Blast Off got hit by one of the fireballs.


Dreadwing continued to wait.

Bumblebee recoiled from the blast, shrapnel piercing his armor plating on his chest. His voice began to short out. "I-Is... tHat... aLL yOu goT? i ExPecTeD moRe FroM... fRoM... A sEeKer." He reloaded his gun and fired several shots at the seeker's head.

Overloads shots pegged Cindersaur at random,one planting itself in his cranium,and fusing with his components,another causing a bad leak and fracture in his knee,while the last few hit his chest,riddling him even more. Clampdown was not a target,but Hound and Dirge would feel the burn before he took Flamefeather out.He quickly napalmed the ceiling and the wall area before him in intense blue flame,creating a shield effect,and regurgitated quite a bit of the sharkiton he had ate.Quickly picking up Flamefeather in his jaws and arms,he abandoned the fastly heating shrapnal bomb he had threw up,and bailed out the hole,landing and looking for the place the decepticons would have landed.

...to Courtyard

And he came up with nothing.Bodies,a few other signals and the rather large mech fighting near him.He ducked a little as Abonimus' components fell around him.

"Verily, I suspected as much." Kingbolt saw Drag Strip's attention drift away from him for a moment. He hesitated slightly, troubled by the dishonourable nature of attacking a foe unawares, but quickly shook the feeling away.

He has doth been warned already.

With a grim expression on his face, the Templar lunged at the Stunticon and tried to impale him on his short sword. As he did so, he noticed the cell's forcefield flash back to light.

Downshift ducked away from Dreadwing's attacks, but before he could retaliate it was suddenly raining Terrorcons; Abominus had been defeated. Although it was definately a good thing for his faction, it had the potential to be very bad for the Omnibot. Instead of facing two Powermasters, he now had to contend with them and the Terrorcons, should they be roused.

With that thought in mind, he did what any sane Autobot would do: he ran.

"The Terrorcons are expendable," Soundwave told Laserbeak. "Their loyalties, after all, are less than reliable."

Soundwave's expression turned into one of annoyance when the prison's forcefields started to reactivate. "Futile," he muttered with contempt. Then, using security codes that he'd extracted from the now-late Searchlight's brain, he remotely logged onto the base computer and started encrypting the facility's controls using one of Sparkstalker's more brilliant algorithms.

Buzzsaw, meanwhile, jumped off of his master's shoulder and dove, cawing murderously, at Overload.

"Fire? How...pedestrian," Wildrider said as Pyro's shot burned paint off of his right arm. "Brute force is just so much more fun, don't you agree?"

With that, the Stunticon tried to punch his Autobot foe in the head.

(OOC: No shuttle, 13thScorpio. They came on Blast-Off and Astrotrain.)

"You have failed to comply , I will now pass sentence, your crimes are cowardice , desertion in the face of the enemy, insubordination and lesser crimes too many to mention. The sentence is death."

Powerflash reached for Backhand's gun aiming to twist it out of the Autobot's hands

Thrust dodged the blasts and threw a powerful punch into Bumblebee's chest, hoping to leave the Minibot with severe damage.

Windcharger's punch sent Shrapnel reeling. Shrapnel saw Cindersaur and Flamefeather move out. "Firecons! We're breaking you out! Contact Astrotrain to get out of here!"

Turning to Cutthroat that lied beside him, Shrapnel supported him by the shoulder. Could use him as a shield... But no, no. "Terrorcon, you awake, awake?"

Laserbeak flew in after BUzzsaw, sending two bolts of laser bursts at Overload, intending to melt the Micromaster's armour.

Five Autobot Pretenders were able to make it into the installation, ahead of Crossblades closing the gate. They were one of the first signs of Autobot reinforcements. The separation of Abominus was going to make their job a little easier.

Landmine, the leader of the group, took notice of the action going on in the courtyard but knew his group could also be used inside. "Splashdown, you, Groundbreaker, and Sky High go inside and assist. Waverider and I will take charge out here," he shouted the orders because of the sounds of combat.

"You got it boss," replied Splashdown. He preferred naval combat but this would do. "You heard the chief, roll out!," yelled Splashdown, gesturing toward Groundbreaker and Sky High. The trio of Autobots ran toward the installation's entry.

As Waverider and Landmine and the other Pretenders arrive, Windcharger gave a sigh of relief. They came. Bloody slag, I never thought reinforcements would come. He caught sight of Wing Saber flying overhead and smiled.

"Die!" He shouted as he lunged at Shrapnel, blasting the Insecticon with his blaster.

Occupied with talking to the Firecons, Shrapnel was shot in the shoulder. Clutching the wound, Shrapnel blasted a bolt of electricity at the ex-Minibot, who fell backwards. Windcharger transformed and drove into the facility. They need help. Shrapnel would be taken care of by the reinforcements. I won't let anyone share Searchlight's fate.

Shrapnel opened a comm to Astrotrain and said "Astrotrain, this is Shrapnel, Shrapnel. Autobot reinforcements are arriving, and we're being driven off, off. The prisoners are loose though and it won't take long for Soundwave and the others to retrieve them, them. I have two near me now, injured, should I take them to you, you?"

Bumblebee got knocked back into the wall with full force, energon leaking from his chest.

"BUMBLEBEE!!!" Pyro yelled as he launched a barrage of fireballs at Thrust. He turned back to the stunticon only to be punched in the head, the fire gathering to the attackers arm. "Whooooooooooo... that was unexpected of you! You are a pretty good fighter..."

Drag Strip was definitely on a down from the Syk Backhand had supplied. At the moment, he was passing though the stable phase, but he knew it would be very temporary and there was no safe cell to recover in. Not in the best condition to fight, he nevertheless turned his attention back to Kingbolt - just in time to take the outthrust sword through his left side a little below the shoulder. The pain surprised him. With a grunt, he slashed his own 'sword' round at Kingbolt's head.

Inside the cell, Breakdown felt his right optic fuse and he was blind...

Backhand had to relinquish the gun or lose his fingers, such was the brute strength Powerflash exerted. Desperately, he shouted, "You can't do that! You haven't got the rank!"

His flailing foot caught Searchlight's head and serendipitously sent it up straight into Powerflash's face.

Thrust dodged the fireballs and lifted Bumblebee into the air.


"Alright, we've had Round 1. Tell me what I need to know or we can repeat the whole thing."


Meanwhile, Blast Off was sick of inactiveness and fired at Pyro.


Meanwhile, Dreadwing continued to wait.

"I am Judge , Jury and Executioner, you have 2 choices you can fight the Terrorcons and die honourably or else I feed you to the Sharkticons."

Landmine watched Windcharger speed away. He and Waverider would be able to handle the Insecticon Shrapnel. "Alternate attack angle on my mark!," he ordered Waverider. "NOW!," said Landmine charging at Shrapnel. Landmine opened fire with his astro blaster, firing incendiary explosives at the Insecticon.

Waverider charged Shrapnel on the Insecticon's left flank. Landmine and I can take him, he thought to himself. Waverider took aim and opened fire with his energy-spear gun.

Entry

Splashdown, Groundbreaker, and Sky High reached the entry of the installation only to find it sealed.

"Crossblades, open the blasted door!," shouted Splashdown, opening a comm channel to the Autobot Mega Pretender.

Groundbreaker and Sky High drew their respective weapons. The pair were eager for the upcoming battle.
