Gigatron's Office

Gigatron gestured to 2 chairs offering them a seat.

"Well done Spinster, you have done well. Did you meet at all with the forces of Onslaught?"

He surveyed Hyperdrive

"We always welcome new arrivals although we don't stand on formality. too much saluting gets NCO's and officers killed in a war zone. I am Gigatron as you are aware. Who are you and what are your specialities?"

Gigatron's Office

Hyperdrive walked up to one of the chairs and sat down. "Hyperdrive, sir. Former member of the Micromaster Sports Car Patrol. As you've noticed... I got big." Hyperdrive grinned as he gestured at his body. "Courtesy of the Combaticons."

"My specialties? Fighting, mostly. Advance assault if you want to get formal, but I do beat-downs, torture, shooting and general mayhem."

Gigatron's Office

Spinister took one of the proffered seats. "After a fashion, Lord Gigatron. Wingspan did most of the negotiations, but we did come away with a few things ourselves." He nodded toward Hyperdrive. "Such as this one."

Gigatrons Office

Gigatron nodded slowly.

"I'm sure we can find a place for you is there anything you would like to specialise in."

He looked at Spinster

"excellent, so Onslaught is aware of the Imperial threat?"

"Anything at all that could serve the Decepticon cause, my liege." Hyperdrive told Gigatron. "Although anything involving lots and lots of death would be great. I will do anything to crush our enemies. Autobots, preferably. Or the Imperials."

"He's aware of it and appears to take it as seriously as you do," Spinister confirmed for Gigatron.

Sixshot continued to fly around the room, waiting for Black Battle Convoy's next move.

"Hey, what's the matter with you?"

Gigatron's Office

Wingspan knocked on the door before bursting in.

"Sire our sattelites have d-d-detected Imperial ships in O-orbit. Their s-s-stealth t-technology w-wasn't as good as they t-t-thought. Also sire our communications intercepts have picked up news of some kind of fource in Protihex t-tentatively identified as I-imperials."

Gigatron nodded

"looks like you get your opportunity sooner than expected."

He said to Hyperdrive.

He opened a scrambled encrypted com link and sent an internal radio message.

"Astrotrain we have Imperials in orbit and possible Imperial forces in Protihex."

"Hell yeah." Hyperdrive replied to Gigatron, cracking his fists. "Shame I had to leave Protihex just now, but to hell with regretting stuff. When do we head off, boss?"

Gigatron nodded

"it just means that we have someone who knows the area Spinstery assemble a squad to go back to Protihex."

"I want in, air boss." Hyperdrive turned to face Spinister, a sick grin on his face. "I know the place. Just give me some time to stack up on guns and let's be on our way."

"Of course," Spinister said to Hyperdrive. "Your experience will be invaluable."

Turning to Gigatron, he asked, "Is this a combat mission, or just a scouting operation to see how much force they've brought with them?"

Hyperdrive pumped his fist into the air with enthusiasm, but had the sense to keep his mouth shut. -Yes! Combat again!-

(OOC: Can Repugnus and Sixshot join the team?)

Scorponok left Stratus under the watchful eye of Sandstorm and sidled up to Cyclonus, reading up on a report himself. "Well, what do you think of our new ally's performance?" the Headmaster whispered to the Unicron-spawned Decepticon. "This wait is rather taxing. I would help, but unfortunately these hands aren't really made for delicate xenobiological work."

Gigatron pondered

" a reconnaissance in force we don't want to overcommit we don't know what else the imperials may be up to."

Science labs

Stratus took a step back and pressed a control."

"may i introduce you to the first drone of many."

"As you wish." Spinister nodded, downloading and reviewing an updated duty roster while he mulled over Gigatron's instructions. Then he activated his comlink.

"Bludgeon, prepare your Mayhem Attack Squad for battle and meet me in the shuttle bay. Submarauder and Ruckus, join us there too."

He headed for the door, Hyperdrive presumably in tow.

"I will be in touch, if the need arises for more troops."

Cyclonus frowned slightly and replied, sotto voce. "Yes, he is taking a rather long time. Hopefully he'll be able to provide us with what we need."

He seemed a bit distracted, as if all of his attention wasn't on Scorponok, or Stratus, even as he looked over the new drone.

"What can it do," he asked, "and how intelligent is it?"

His mind was obviously elsewhere, though. He could feel a subtle...tug, just like the one that had led him to Stanix.

"Thunderwing is near," he muttered to himself, just barely audible.

Stratus manipulated a control.


The Drone took a step forward.

"Alpha Prime reporting for duty I am a fully functioning Overcharge drone I am programmed to serve . What are your orders."

Stratus looked at Cyclonus

"it is as inteligent as say Ramjet if not a little more so on the subject of self preservation."

Scorponok listened to Cyclonus. "My sentiments exactly." The Headmaster noted that the Unicron spawn was seemingly unfocused... but put it aside as part of his unholy heritage. He gets results, it's what matters. He can blank off into the distance for the entire day for all I care.

Cyclonus mumbled something indistinct, and Scorponok raised an optic. "You say something?" Thunderwing? Scorponok mentally thought. Did Cyclonus really say that?

However, Scorponok's attention was immediately drawn towards Stratus and his drone. A smile grew on Scorponok's face, the same cruel scientist's smile when he devised the Pretender process. "Ah, excellent. Transform, drone. Show us what you can do."

Turning to Stratus, Scorponok asked, "How much sooner can you clone this drone?"

Stratus pondered

"This one drone we can clone given the facilities 14 a day for the first week ramping up production to 27.5 a day in week 2"

"They have been summoned," Spinister told Hyperdrive flatly. "They should meet us in the shuttle bay."

With that said, he walked off toward the bay himself, quickly transmitting orders for his hangar minions to prepare his shuttle once more.

"Hmm? Just daydreaming," Cyclonus lied to Scorponok with zero interest in whether the other Decepticon believed him or not.

Turning his attention to Stratus he said, "Call it a hunch, but I don't think that production schedule will do us any good. We need as many troops as we can get, as quickly as we can get them. What do you need to manufacture them more quickly?"

He gazed speculatively at the Overcharge clone, frowning. "I suspect we'll need a lot of them. Preferably not in green."

"Hrnnn." Scorponok grunted at Cyclonus' admission to his daydreaming. The thought of admonishing the smaller Decepticon came to him, but for some reason he held his tongue.

His attention was turned back to Stratus soon enough anyway. "Cyclonus is correct. The schedule leaves something to be desired, scientist. Our enemies could attack any time. We need to be ready as soon as possible."

Scorponok looked the Overcharge drone up and down. "Though I'll admit triple-changing drones would be a great asset. They blew up easily during the Reclamation, though, and there's a large swarm of them. And from what I've heard the Imperials are a heck lot more than the Quintessons that took over Cybertron."

Corridors, Fearless

Hyperdrive shrugged, following in Spinister's wake. A door labeled 'armoury' caught his attention, though. He stopped in front of it and knocked on the door. "Hey, air boss, I'll rearm and meet you at the shuttle bay, okay?"
