The Fire Dome. A former welding pit facility used to create protoforms, this derelict area of Cybertron has been converted into a hidden Autobot base! Riddled with traps and sensors, this command centre is for the more down-to-earth, experienced (or paranoid) Autobot. Although it’s not the most hi-tech or comfortable Headquarters, its position on the Decepticon border makes it worth its weight in energon.

Blindspot was poring over an old case study in his quarters. Peregrine was sparring with a training hologram (With little success) in the Training room, Disgrace was brooding in the security monitors room and Prominence was examining the Welding Pits...

++COMM++ " *static* Slagging Comm...... *static* Fssshhhhzzztt Fire Dome, Come in Fire Dome. 'ey, I really hope yer all gettin' this... Is anybot there?" ++END COMM++
Shipwreck grunted over comm, a hand pressed firmly against the side of his head, bushing a button to talk over comm link and to support the pounding of his aching head. It was a long, long way from Earth to Cybertron and dispite his enormous size, he was getting very tired. He couldn't even remember the last time he had a good recharge. Shaking the blackness creeping over his optics, he gently hovered across space and approaching the Fire Dome. I'll be there in no time... just gotta make it to the border...

++COMM++ "This is Autobot Disgrace from the Fire Dome, please state your name and intentions before being cleared for landing. ++END COMM++ Disgrace sat back in his chair, breathing a deep, heavy sigh. They hadn't had no visitors in a long, long time. Pressing the base intercom, he spoke clearly into the mic. "This is Disgrace. Will all Autobots please prepare to welcome a guest, but also be ready if said bot is hostile. Thank you."
Peregrine was tossed by the hologram (again) over her shoulder, sending him flat on his face to the floor. "You were slightly off balance, you see? You've got to stay-" *Intercom Announcement* "Ha, welcome? How is this place welcomin?!" The hologram helped Peregrine to her feet, and she left the training room...

++Comm++ "Well glad to hear som'on gott mah message. Ahoy Disgrace! T'is Shipwreck callin' and probably wont be fer very long I'm afraid... *static* - must say the ground is approaching rather fast and the last time I flew was well beyond my years... prefere the sea if you don't mind...*small chuckle* So if you feel - *static* - ground tremble, you know I've landed around 'ere somewhere... can't really miss me... *static*" ++End Comm++
Shipwreck's flight pattern wavered as he brough his arm back from the side of his head, to in front of him. "Yikes!" He said to himself, arms pinnwheeling and legs kicking slightly to regain his balence. This fight stuff is much 'arder d'en sailin' i must say... He thought to himself, making his way closer to the Autobot base. I just 'ope they've got the room... He chuckled. Not ever say a transformer the size 'o miself comes wanderin' by...

"Message received, Shipwreck. I'm plotting your trajectory right now, so that me and my team can... Pick you up. Disgrace out." Disgrace kicked off his desk, causing his computer chair to roll to another desk. Tapping in several keys, he activated the tannoy yet again. "Okay mechs and fems, I want everyone ready in the Passage in five clicks!" He rushed out of the Security Monitor Room.
"Right! Okay! Prominence on me way!" Prominence dropped his spanner and sprinted out of the welding pits, meeting Peregrine in the corridor. "Why is it that Disgrace never explains this kind of stuff?"
"Blindspot dispatching." Blindspot calmly rose from the recharge berth, breathing deeply in a similar way to when he was about to talk to someone baying for his motor oil...

Shipwreck grunted, somewhat pleased that his message was received. But then again, now he was oing to get a welcoming comitee. His visor dimmed in concintration as he flipped over, traveling feet first into the ground. It crumbled beneath him, leaving large craters around his footprints as he stumbled forward in a few more steps before tripping forwards. "Whaaaagg!" He yelled as he fell belly down on the surface with a loud crash and a small shake of the earth... or Cybertron. With a loud grunt he brought his arms close his his shoulders and pushed off the ground, folding his arms so he could rest on them. "Well! I'd give mah'self 10 outa 10 fer that perfect landing!" He chuckled to himself.

Shivers watched silently from the shadows, his deep dark maroony red optics glowed faintly to not give away his presence. He watched the large bot fall, and was indeed intersted but would do nothing against his leader's word. He was a body guard, not a spy. That was Rythmius' job. Straitening up, he slid along side the shaded parts of the streets back to base without even hte slightest disterbance.
Shipwreck grumbled to himself as he heard approaching vehicles. He slid off his forarms, rolled over onto his back and sat up. "Well.. looks like I've made quite the mess!" He said with a light optic band as he looked around at the things he trampled, crushed and knocked over from his fall. It was always hard for him to move around and hide. Sneaky just wasn't him, but then again batleships themselves arn't to sneaky. Destructive yes, sneaky no. He frowned as he looked around, then glanced over his shoulder to the approaching autobots. "Ahoy!" He called somewhat softly. He knew there were Decepticons aroudn here.. and definitely didn't want them close by.

"Will you be needing some assistance, Shipwreck?" "Don't worry, we'll have you out of here in no time!" Peregrine and Disgrace tried to hoist the gargantuan bot, while Blindspot and Prominence looked him over. "Can you walk?"
Post by Thunderclap on Dec 4, 2008 18:51:37 GMT -5
Shipwreck chuckled, a deep hearty sailor laugh. He glanced at Perigrine and Disgrace before giving them a small wave of his massive hand. "T'is alright lads... 'M 'fraid I did more damage to the place then te meself." He chuckled, optic band bright. He grunted before shuffling around to face them head on without having to strait his neck to look. "Well coarse I can. It's just that yer smaller then I am, and t'is not a very pleasant conversation when ye have to look up to somebot way higher than ye." He said with a small frown. "Alright, alright lads, I'm gettin' up." He said to his fellow autobots as they tried to help hoist him up. He shuffled his massive feet underneath him and lifted himself slowly off the ground, being careful of Perigrine and Disgrace. The battleship, transport bot looked down at them, visor flickering. " 'appy now?"

"Indeed we are. Now if you'd like to come back with us, I think you'll probably be able to squeeze in through our transportation entrance. Perhaps, for quarters, you might be able to fit one of the old welding pits..." Disgrace chuckled, while everyone else just gave him a funny look. Disgrace was not known for his sense of humour...
Post by Thunderclap on Dec 20, 2008 23:56:19 GMT -5
Shipwreck laughed and bent over, giving Disgrace a hefty pat on the back. "Glad te see I'm not the only one makin' jokes." He chuckled, straitening back up.
"I was in the neighborhood and thought I'd... drop by! But I am flattered that ye try to find a place fer me... most mechs are like 'sorry Shipwreck.. to big..'" He laughed, visor brightening up in amusement lifting his arms up and gesturing with them and hardly taking notice of a long scratch down his forarm with leaking oily energon. He hardly seemed to notice, and or really care but he grinned down at the others.

Shipwreck grinned, unaware that his 'pat' had been so 'breath taking'. He watched the others transform, knowing that it would be best to not make a fool of himself and tilt over onto his side like a beached ship. That would simply not do. He stretched and half smiled. 'Roll out... we'll... i'll let them do they rolling, I'll just follow.' He chuckled to himself, letting them lead the way while he followed on foot; making sure not to crush anything else, including the other autobots. He just kept his distance.
