Skies above Sentinel Prime Defence Base

Starscream made an exasperated sound as Obsidian explained his plan. "You do realize that we're in the process of leaving the base, yes? We were in a firefight with Sentinel Prime and left because we were supposed to get Skywarp out!"

He watched Parachute explode and Skywarp take down Defrauder, and barked to him and Thundercracker, "Time to quit playing around," he told the other seekers. "We've got new orders. If there's anyone else still shooting, finish them!"

(OOC: Are Talonflame or any of the rest still alive?)

"I'm just saying that you and the rest of command need to get on the same page if you expect to get anything done. There's no way we're getting back in there now. The senate, on the other hand...the senate we can do. Just tell Scorponok not to pout when he hears we've taken all his fun."

"Pretty sure that's not how dictatorships work," Predacon told Scorponok. "A tyrant has advisors, ministers...but senators? Not unless he's trying to pretend like things were still a democracy. Me, I'm just hoping for a lab and an unlimited budget. I'm easy to please like that, I guess."

He had no idea who 'Captain Buggy' was, but didn't care enough to ask.

South East Border, Iacon

The bombers were now within weapons range. Several of them -- prisoners and Renegades mostly, as well as a handful of Destrons and notably, zero Vehicons -- were shot out of the sky. The remainder fired off their primary payload down at the security perimeter and the turret weapons. The escort fighters, meanwhile, opened fire on the individual Autobots visible near the weapons emplacements, peppering the ground with hot lead.

Red Alert glanced over at Hound and gave a minimal head-shake. "Scouts need to be stealthy," he told the other Autobot. "I have sirens and kick down doors. Detecting traps I can do. Sneaking into enemy territory, detecting stuff and sneaking back out? Not so much." The cop shook his head. "I have had recruiters try to talk me into joining up so they could put me into bomb disposal, but I don't have the dexterity for that. I can spot them, but I'm no good at defusing them."

South East Border, Iacon

"Oh, you full-blown Knights, all the same. You never realize that not everyone wants to become Knights." Prowl replied. "And frankly, if work bothered me, I would not have saddled myself with Sentinel, Zeta Prime and the Senate at the same time, on top of having to manage the entire military. If you think I quit because I cannot handle sweeping floors..."

Prowl paused. "You should come work for us. Better insurance, better health care." He paused. "No, the military is different. You can petition for change. You can ask the higher ups -- reasonable ones like myself can bring about change. With the Temple Knights... well, let's just say the leadership style doesn't suit me."

He aimed upwards and launched several shots of acid pellets at the nearest bomber that flew overhead. "Bombers! Take out the bombers!"

(OOC: Sparrowhawk is fighting Thundercracker unless I missed something, Talonflame is alive but wounded, the rest of the team is dead)

Obsidian made a snorting noise. "You need to be more flexible, Starscream... but I suppose your judgment can be trusted, you being in the field and all. Very well... eliminate the Senate, then regroup with us."

Tagan Heights

(OOC: Captain Buggy is Obsidian. I kind of mixed up Skywarp and Scorponok as the nicknamer.)

"Advisors, ministers, whatever you call it. He's going to need a bunch of people to argue with him and to completely ignore. And, occasionally, listen to." Scorponok shrugged. "If anything, I can be his fuel auditor or one of the field commanders. With a reasonable fee attached, of course."

Autotroopers fell as the Decepticons opened fire at them, but the weapon emplacements and turrets held as they took aim at the incoming wave and began unleashing their payloads.
