Walking with his commander, Venator ponders the mission to come.
[glow=teal,2,300]Vecotr Primus sounds like a great many of the prisoners who come to me - full of their own self importance. I find the best way to deal with such sentients is to give them enough rope to hang themselves.
It won't surprise you to know that I've studied the august leader of the Autobots in some detail. I'm looking forward to crossing swords with him. As soon as Hoist is ready I'll leave for Iacon.[/glow]
Soon a picture form no the screen infront of Max and Venator. It was Vector Primus with an auditorium behind him.
"Greetings max Convoy. We welcome you well. It has been a long time, and we are pleased that you have returned back to us to us from the dead."
"Thank you Emirate. But if you and the council can skip the formalities, I have matters that concern me more then my come back."
Max saw the council members stirred about at his comments only to be silenced when Vector primus waves his hand behind him.
"Indeed, we have a great number of issues concerning your Renegades General. The council and myself need to know where the Renegades stand in the upcoming war."
"Where we've always stood Emirate, between Cybertron and the Destructicons."
"So does this mean the Renegades will conform and disband to join the Autobots? Your second in command Latyrx7 expressed concern to the unification of both sides."
"If so he did so on his own accord Emirate. The fact of the matter is where the Autobots need the Renegades the Renegades work better on there own, uninhibbited by any rules or santions imposed by the council of Autobot tradition. We wouldn't have won the first battle of the war if we did."
"Surely you don't mean that General? After all you are still a servant of Cybertron, a decorated soilder and officer. You of course understand that this can only lead to future conflict between both sides."
"So says you, perhaps others don't see it they way that you would have them see it. But if relations are so important to you then I suggest the course of action I'm about to suggest be agreed on. Its a simple matter of trust. Four of my troops have gone missing in Iacon and I want them back."
"Rest assured the matter is being investigated."
"Not good enough. I'm sending in my own team under the command of Lt. commander Hoist. Allow them to carry on there search and assist them as a sign of good will."
"And if we do that then what will be your show of faith? Returing the Matrix of leadership to its right full place here in Iacon with the Autobots has been a question raised many time today in this meeting. Why not show up yourself and...."
"Other matters that need my attention keeps me from coming myself. As for the Matrix, as soon as Optimus Prime comes to me in a vision of magnificences and instructs me to return the Matrix, it stays here."
This caused a large comotion amoung the members. Max could see that Vector was now visibly upset. "This will not be viewed well Maximus."
"Its Max Convoy now. Hoist will be showing up soon, show them some curtasey when they arrive. After all the reason no one has arrested us is we have not broken any law. If my Renegades are treated in any other way, it will be considered an act of war. Until next time, Emirate....
The transmission was cut and Vector Primus and the council disappeared. He turned to Venator and motioned for both of them to leave the tower to return to the underground levels. "The best way to show up Vector is not to play the game of polotics on stage in front of an audience. Plus any dirty under handed tactics and ignoring protocal really throws him off. Oh the old days, I miss them. Looks like were about to relive it. But now perpare your team and get yourself a ship to leave." [glow=blue,2,000][/glow]
Up in the sky, miles from the Renegade base, a small fighter jet flew home from a long journey. As he soared above Cybertron, Skystreaker couldn't help feeling angry at himself. Failure. Utter failure. He had been secretly dispatched to locate a rumored power source that would be great enough to lead the Renegades to victory. The rumors of this awesome power source had been vauge, but seemed worth going after. But when Skystreaker finally hunted down all the clues, it turned into a blank dead end. Now he had to return to the Renegades empty handed, nothing to show for the long time spent away.
Riding in Skystreaker's #######, the Minicon Powerhouse mused over his own thoughts. Long-range scans showed some sort of complex over the location of the secret Renegade base. Things had changed, all right. But how much? Powerhouse knew that old comrades could be no more, with new faces to take their place. Would they even remember him? Would things ever be the same? Dark thoughts, insecurities, and growing apprehension filled both of them as they grew ever nearer to the Renegade base.

[glow=red,2,300]*HA looks at Max and nods.*
"Shadowstalker is everywhere.............He does not come at ones call......................I will do as ask,General!Just keep in mind things have changed.These Renegadez have become unstable as have I.Your leadership is mush needed my General!"
*HA turns about as do the AD and exited from the tower.*[/glow]
I'm taking Sharpshot to sickbay before i go topside and leave with the others, he's in no fit state to come with us. Also Latyrx wasn't at the meeting and hasn't answered my hail, i'm worried about him, someone should check he's alright,
if Ventanator is still with you tell him i'll meet him topside in 10 breens...
"C'mon sharpshot let's get you to the medi center...*
Hoistleft with sharpshot helping to prop him up as they left...*[/glow]
Eschewing the cramped mag lev tubes Venator makes his way to the roof of the tower, transforms to Raptor mode and flies down to one of the hangers. Once there he preps a shuttle for launch, opens the doors and sits back to go over Vector Primus' intel file whilst he waits for Hoist.
[glow=green,2,300]*Hoist had dropped Sharpshot off in sack back, tended his wound temporarily and hooked him up to all kinds of machinery...*
Now the work on your wound is only temporary to stop the flow of oil and re-route it back through your normal systems, once i get back i can do mmore but for right now it is critical that you get some rest, and that's an order!! If you don't rest i can't do the more serious work when i return. It'll allow you time to recouperate and get your systems operating to a normal capity that will allow me to work.
I have to go now but i'll make sure you're checked on by some of the others, rest easy comrade..
*And with that hoist exited*
"entanator, this is hoist, i'm leaving the medi center, i'll be 2 breens, everything ready there?"
Drawing closer, Skystreaker spotted a robot moving about on the Renegade base. Before Skystreaker could get an ID on it, it flew into a hangar building. [glow=red,2,300]Okay, Powerhouse, we're going to take a look around this place before we announce our presence to anybody. Have to make sure its safe.[/glow] Skystreaker transformed and the two of them landed just outside the base perimiter. Cautiously walking in the nearest building, they saw that it looked mostly empty. Still trying to figure out the purpose of these sham buildings, they walked off to explore the other ones.
Heavy Assault comes out of the tower on to the surface to where the opened plains of Cybertron were before him. The last time he saw Shadow Stalker was months ago, it would be a hard task to find him however being that Shadow Stalker was his spark brother, HA had an edge.
Heavy Assault would now see Skystreaker and vice a versa.
As Hoist was leaving, he bumped into Latyrx7. [glow=blue,2,000]"Hoist, IM has taken off on his own. I think he's taking Perceptor's death really hard. Meeting? What meeting, what are you talking about? Strange. my com should be working find, let me contact Max."[/glow]
L7 contact Max Convoy.
[Comlink] "Patch up Sharpshot and have him ready in 3000 astro seconds. Then meet me privately L7, that will be all." [/Comlink]
[glow=blue,2,000]"Thats odd, something must be up."[/glow]

Putting down the data pad, Venator toggles the comm switch to reply to Hoist's message.
[glow=teal,2,300]Everything is ready Lt Cmdr. It would be best however if you referred to me by my correct designation. I was unaware that a Renegade by the name of "entenator" existed. Are your memory engrams and vocal subroutines in need of maintenance?[/glow]
Whilst putting Hoist in his place, Venator reaches over to another pad, and keys in a series of commands.
[glow=teal,2,300]> Initiate interface with contact RI/AC 91034-Epsilon.[/glow]
[glow=teal,2,300]> Download record of Autobot Council session currently concluding. terminate interface when download complete.[/glow]
[glow=red,2,300]> Downloading........33% complete........67% complete..........Download complete. Interface terminated. Record available for playback.[/glow]
[glow=teal,2,300]> Initiate playback of Council session[/glow]
Toggling shut the comm channel to Hoist, Venator reclines in his chair, watching the recording of the council session provided by one of the Renegade's intel sources
[OOC - I'm only accessing what would be a public record. I'm just getting it early. I think it's reasonable that the gades would have some sympathisers who would pass on such things fairly quickly, but nothing private or confidential]
Back in her quarters, Jinx had heard something over the com in the background of her reverie, but paid no mind to it. She was lost and confused by the recent events and deeply disturbed by the pa$$ing of Perceptor, of Im's state of mind and the reappearance of this Max Convoy... He seemed brave enough, especially when he kept the Destructicons back all by himself... but now he was just the icing on her cake of life.
Her grief consumed her almost completely... She looked back at her life as a Renegade... from when she first met Morpher to meeting up with Aqualec and Merlin, their helping of the refugees, the mess at the "glorious celebration" with Vector Primus and their recent battle on the moon.
She liked all of her comrades well enough, some more so than others because of her closer connections to them, but with all of them, there was disappointment in one respect or another... She decided that she would not allow closeness with any of them any more... Take a lesson from HA and Perceptor... Harden youself to this crazy male population... become more like them and be more cold and distant in order to protect yourself from all this maddness of emotions.... KEEP YOUR DAMN DISTANCE!! Jinx just wanted to scream!!!
As she tried to make this her forefront mission, her thoughts drifted off again to her days and nights with Morpher... her time spent with Aqualec and Merlin... and all the other menbots she'd worked with in this rag tag group of Renegades along the way that were kind, helpful or otherwise.... Visions ran past her internal optics wildly... small smiles crept across her face warmly at some of them... then suddenly she found herself in torrential tears again... Desparately, she wanted and needed to be near Morpher... she needed to see Perceptor, and Im together in their lab... and for some unknown reason wanted to talk to Aqualec... She couldn't place that last need and so pushed it off deciding to go off in search of Im, trusting that he would be in the lab... as she thought about Im and helping him with his loss... she knew he would have some intellectually quip thing to say that would snap her out of her stupor and put her back to her personal mission at hand.
With that, Jinx dragged her sorry self off her cot out her doorway and headed off to Perceptor's lab.

Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
