Rápido breathed a sigh of relief when Speedway spoke over the comlink and told them that he was okay. As far as he could tell, he knew little of these strange organics, who called themselves humans, but he was in no mood for such drastic talk. Shaking his head and his insides churning in excitement, he looked eagerly around.
"Someone tell me where I can scan a vehicle? I'm itching to have a need for speed!" He could never contain his excitement of trying out fast things, and he knew that Earth had just achieved their great speed. Just where was a good vehicle when you needed one? Oh who was he kidding. The determination for speed was getting out of hand.
Back at the Altech Organisations HQ, the new Autobots who arrived last night, Blitzkat, Rápido, Tanda and River Wing, were still getting used to their new surroundings - an old building, one of many that had been converted for the organisation which joined forces with the Altech and the Autobot Transformers.
Many parts of the furniture had been converted to accommodate both human and Transformer sizes, especially the doors. Any computer areas had separate special consoles that were higher up for the Transformers (Usually mounted on walls), but still able to access the same functions at the small humans.
The four of them still had concerns about this organisation, and if that wasn't enough, their fifth member they left Cybertron with, Speedway, was still missing...
Blitzkat was checking the surroundings of this building. It was perfect. They managed to get the sizes correct for the Autobots. He then said to Tanda 'Amazing, how they are able to get sizes correct for us. I wonder, it must have been a pain for them to find a building for sizes such as ours'. Tanda looked at Blitzkat, who was small compared to her and replied 'Yes, it fits me well actually, to my surprise. come on Blitzkat, let's go and follow the rest of the folks. We need to probably be assigned some objectives'. Tanda and Blitzkat walked on and followed the rest of their comrades.
As Speedway made his way through the Earth traffic, the signal was placed by another weak signal, an energy signal, that of a Transformer. His scanners detected it right away, but had no way of knowing whether it was Autobot or Decepticon.
The great firey ball in the sky, was headed straight for Daytona beach, more specifically for a crash landing in the sea. Unknown to Speedway it was a Transformer protoform, locked in it's stasis pod for it's arrival on Earth. The Transformer designated Speed-Trap hurtled it's way down to the ocean with an almighty splash and upsurge of salty sea water as it hit the surface of the water.
For a while it kind of bobbed their before slowly sinking - sinking down, to the depth of the sea bead at the bottom of the ocean. Although it was air tight, this Transformer was about to get a whle lot wetter as he tried to open the pod..
Soon, after walking though the building, Blitzkat and Tanda were talking about forms for themselves. Tanda said 'I want a form which will get me anywhere to help my fellow comrades, so I can repair them and refuel them. What do you want Blitzkat'?
Blitzkat said 'I'm a fighter Autobot, I want something that will fight and kill Decepticons!' in his proud and booming voice. They walked on as they waited for alternate forms. Blitzkat and Tanda wondered where and when they would get their forms.
The water landing had activated Speed-Trap's reactivation sequence. He had chosen to go out seperate of the ship, so that more ground could be covered.
"Systems good, minimal damage... now i have to get out of this thing." he muttered to himself.
The pod started sinking.
"Well, i guess now's as good a time as ever." he said, popping open the hatch.
He saw the coastline for a moment, before the water started rushing in.
~Wonderful... corrosive water... better make this fast.~ he thought to himself.
Slowly he clawed his way to a remote area of the beach, noone around.
~Right, orders... Lay low, get an alternate form, and wait for contact...~ he looked around, then saw it...
A beautiful black Dodge Charger SRT8, parked near a 'black and white" of the same make, but not of the SRT monicker.
~Perfect, speed... power... authority... But to keep it on the down low, i'll wait to use the officer form.~ he said, setting his scanner to accept the attributes of both. He scanned the SRT car first, then the cop car.
From where a robot stood, was now parked a sleek Dodge Charger, nothing special yet... he'll get to that later.
"Warning, appearance change circuits damaged" said his computer.
~Well, it looks like i don't have a choice in the matter after all...~... he thought.
He pulled up the map on the nav screen, as his police computer was stuck at the moment.
~So... this is... Flow-rih-dah... interesting name... Well... now... I wait...~ he thought, starting the SRT engine, then getting onto the roadway.
~And now... some place to go...~
He stopped at a red light... good thing the scanned vehicle had tinted windows... he got alot of stares and glances.
Speedway also stopped at a red light he was lucky to remember putting the canopy up while he made his way beach side he was almost to where the weak fragment signal was but he was having to deal with traffic. "Man i dont know how these humans do it constant stop and go driving from one light to another. Its enough to drive a bot crazy." Speedway said to himself as the light turned green. He came to another light and at it was a Charger SRT8 waiting for the light to turn green.
Speedway heard the car next to him rev its engine."Well I guess it wouldnt hurt to test the speed of this form." He said to himself. He to Reved his engine the sound was a bit beefy but it ment he had some power. He scaned the area for Human Officers to make sure there wernt any he was lucky there wernt any. He reved the engine a second time. "Guess even Humans know how to have fun." Speedway thought to himself.
Speedway likewise burned rubber and shot off the line when the light turned green. He trailed smoke behind him as he kept up with the Charger just fine "I think its time to see what my form can really do." Speedway thought.
~This punk's trying to pass me... I'll show him...~ Speed Trap pulled forward slightly, then a beeping came from under the dash...
The beeping was soon explained to him as a RADAR detector, as they passed a cop car behind a billboard.
The officer was woken up by the rumble of the engines, and his radar gun. Light, sirens... A newer model Crown Victoria. But, the duo had left his field of vision...
"I have got to stop watching the SPEED channel before i go to bed." said the oficer, looking into the emptiness of his coffee cup, "And get a new gun... Thats the second time this week it's beeped 150." he added, turning the radar gun off, turning off the sirens, and leaving in the opposite direction of the duo, toward dunkin donuts.
Speedway added a little more gas and started to pass the Charger on the right. The Intersection was fast approaching ahead and there was a slower car in Speedways lane. "No way im gona simply slow down." Speedway thought to himself as just one car length from the slower car he hit the Jump Jacks and hurtled over the car. The occupant insided hit the brakes as Speedway landed infront of it making sparks as the suspention bottomed out from the impact. (mostly cause they were startled at the sight of a car falling infront of them) Speedway kept up his speed edging out ahead of the Charger.
Speedway hit the breaks and all his tire made a the familir sound of ruber screaching on the pavement. He stopped cocked at an angle 50 yards from Speed-Trap. "Oh great i was wonderin what was up with that car i didnt think Humans actually raced during the day time." Speedway thought to him self. He decided to stay in his vehicle mode just to see if he could fool the bot long enough to get away. He reved his engine a few times and waited. He checked on the fragment signal realquick and realized it was on the move. "Oh thats just great i think someone found it before i did." Speedway thought again.
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!
