The force from the explosion kicked up and threw anything not attached to something. Metal dust and filings clouded the bottom of the building along with smaller pieces of sharp metal and scrap. Then, the steel beams began to come down.
Driveby heard Roadtrain for all to get off the building. Even though he saw Roadtrain and Stinger at a distance before and could of fired on Stinger or order him to put his weapon down, it was too late. He ran for the edge and jumped off. He hit the ground hard but rolled. His body was cover him dirt from the explosion as well as knocked over from it's force. Besides some major scratches, he was ok.
Onix was covered in dirt and dust. But he managed to see the building come crashing down, metal beams and all.
Everyone who was airborn saw the building fall into the cloud below and heard the terrible sound of metal falling into each other.
Roadtrain coiled up into a ball to survive the impact the best he could. Soon he was felt the impact of metal falling on to him, banging against his body and denting his armor in with each blow. Then he felt the weight above his body stablize. It sounded as if the building had completely fallen down.
Across the comlinks, Tomboy's voice was heard calling Roadtrain's name, asking him to acknowledge the transmission. As Roadtrain began to bury himself out, something fell in front of him. It was blue, roundish and all around it electricity popped off and liquid like fuel leaked from it.
Roadtrain froze when he found Stinger's head. The mission had failed. He'd given the order to Onix to detonate the explosives. He'd taken over while Incendius was out of action. His orders had lead to Stinger's death. His orders lead to the failure of the mission. After a short while, he heard someone moving the wreckage of the building.
+++COMM+++ "I'm....Alright. Still functioning, maybe a little external damage. The same can't be said for Stinger. I'm sorry, but we've failed the mission....I've failed the mission." +++COMM+++
D-Fib continued scanning Incendius. She was worried because nothing had shown up on her scans yet. She looked over to Tomboy.
"We need to land and help get Roadtrain out and check on the others."
+++COMM+++ "Onix, Driveby, Roadtrain, report. Any serious injuries? What condition are you three in?" +++COMM+++
With that, D-Fib looked back at Incendius.
"Incendius, can you hear me? Answer me if you can."
On the ground, Roadtrain was still struggling to free himself. His leg was pinned by something and he couldn't reach whatever was pinning him. Stinger's severed head was staring at him, almost as if Stinger was mocking him for failing the mission.
This is Driveby, well all appear to be fine, but the less said about Stinger the better..
+++ COMM +++
Finally checking himself after he had got up, he saw that there was no immediate damage. The others might have scardey-cat-footed around it but he wasn't going to just "forget it."
+++ COMM +++
Onix, Roadtrain what the slag were you both thinking? I wanted him dead as much as the next bot, but we had our orders! YOU screwed up Roadtrain, and it's you that's going to have to report this in and face the consequences....
Maybe we can get a neural download from his positronic brain unit..
Roadtrain struggled as the wreckage was lifted from him.
+++COMM+++ "Driveby, stow it. I know this was my fault. But with Incendius out of action, that left me in charge. Someone needed to take action, and I didn't see anyone else stepping up to the position." +++COMM+++
While his upper body was now uncovered, his legs were still pinned.
D-Fib was standing at one of the open shuttle hatches as the shuttle closed in on Roadtrain's position. She activated her magnetic powers and helped Onix move some of the larger pieces of metal.
"Wow, I must say, I'm impressed by Roadtrain....Being able to survive all that. I'll give you three a quick once over to make sure there aren't any hidden or internal injuries. For the time being, find as much of Stinger as you can and deliver the parts to my repair bay. If we're quick enough, I should be able to extract the information we need."

The shuttle final touched down. Tomboy left the controls and ran out to Roadtrain. 'You idiot! What were you thinking? I'm the crazy one.' Tomboy began to help move the steel wreckage off of Roadtrain as well.
Soon, the siren from Autobot security forces could be heard closing in. And then, a flash of light appeared as someone was beam down to the spot via space bridge. It was Omnitron with a squad of troops. 'Well slag me with a Dinobot. You rookies have really made a mess! Where's Stinger?'
The Renegades pointed him towards the head. Omnitron walked over and picked it up. 'Damnit! Computic! Beam me back to Unicron directly to the medical bay on the double! You lot have just escaped a major chewing! That is until you get back to base!'
It seems that Omnitron had more to say, but he disappeared before he could utter another word as the space bridge beamed him back to Unicron's head with Stinger's head with him.
Roadtrain didn't get a chance to respond to Tomboy as D-Fib ushered him off to her repair bay. He was walking with a slight limp where a piece of rebar had pierced his leg. After Omnitron arrived and then left with Stinger's head, Roadtrain spoke up.
"Listen up. None of you did anything wrong. All you did is what a soldier is trained to do and follow orders. You followed my orders. I'm taking full responsibility for all of this, and I'll be slagged if I'm going to let any of you try to take the blame."
D-Fib pushed Roadtrain back slightly and started work on his leg.
"Very noble of you. Now stay quiet and let me work. The sooner I finish work on you, I can get back to trying to figure out what is wrong with Incendius."
Onix wasn't impressed with Roadtrain's nobility. He grunted at it.
"Forget the damned nobility. You were in charge for less than five minute, made a call in the heat of the moment with a gun to your head. I like to receive credit for my work and I'm not letting you take it."
