Deadbolt, Metalingus and Hypershot contacted HQ once they lost contact with Hardstrike and Incognito. They were instructed to return to base and were beamed back to Unicron's head soon afterwards.
Incendius' team came back and were all treated for their wounds and damage. They made their reports that would go to Omnitron, Hoist and Latyrx7 for review. Soon after the medical bay checked them out, they were united all together in the war room, awaiting the Renegade commanders.
Computic entered the room where everyone else waiting. He looked around and when he saw Incendius, he wasn't able to look in to his friend's optics. Instead he turned to the others and spoke. 'Greetings. For what its worth, sorry I couldn't be their to help out. And incase anyone is curioius, Hardstrike and Incognito haven't appeared back on the radar yet, but were still looking.'
(ooc: everyone is here with the exception of new characters still waiting to be written in, Phasmatis isn't here and of course Hardstrike and Incognito)
Roadtrain was sitting down when Computic spoke. He was still angry and disappointed with himself for what had happened.
"Was the information we needed able to be extracted from Stinger's head?"
Deadbolt was examining a small datapad, going through the details of his mission when he heard a squeal of joy. He whipped around to see D-Fib, just in time for her to jump at him and embrace him.
"Deadbolt! Everything shiny with you? You would have been in your element if you were on the same mission as me!" She beamed. "I wasn't on the surface for most of the combat, but I saw it all. You should have seen it. Incendius, Roadtrain, Onix and Driveby were...Wow! And as for Tomboy, I don't think I've seen another femmebot kick tailpipe so easily!"
"D-Fib....Calm down. You're getting a little over-excited. They may have got to slag a few losers, but me, Hypershot and Metalingus raked in a good amount when we played Atlas." Deadbolt replied.
He turned to Computic.
"Have you tried following any Omega vehicles that left the casino?"

Incendius stood solemnly beside his team mates. He felt huge personal guilt for the failure of the mission: he'd been in command, It'd been his call, and he'd screwed up. Now it was time to take the fall, but first... he had to put his house in order. He approached Computic slowly, expressionless. He'd been hurt by the way his old friend had avoided looking at him, like some freakish monster. For now, though, he decided it was best to tactfully ignore it. "Computic. Do you know where detainee Phasmatis was taking after his arrest?"
Hypershot was sitting quietly in the corner. Sulking. They'd never had a chance to get Atlas and that annoyed him. He'd found the whole under cover thing a pain and decided that next time he'd avoid it if possible.
He laughed a little at the way the way D-Fib hugged Deadbolt. Then slumped in his chair in a position close to falling off and sighed impaciently.

D-Fib moved away from Deadbolt a little, feeling she'd suitably embarrassed him. She made her way through the room, looking to mingle a little and get to know some of her team-mates a little better. She smiled as she passed Roadtrain, who gave a small nod in return. D-Fib then gave Tomboy a small wave. She then spotted Hypershot and approached.
"Hi there. Everything go alright in your mission?" She said.

Computic looked between Deadbolt and Incendius. 'They haven't told me anything and.....'
Computic turned his head towards the door as he heard loud foot steps coming from that direction. In came Omnitron, mad as hell with Stinger's head in his hand. 'Is this your idea of capturing the subject alive?!
With that, Omnitron threw the head across the room where it hit the wall, almost hitting Hypershot in the head. 'Who's slagged minded idea was it to blow up a unstable building under construction while he was still on it?! ANSWER ME! I've seen some moronic moves pulled in my time, but to bring down that much steel, that would punch a hold through a Dinobot's thick head, has to be insane! And if I know insanity then I can imagine where the half-witted plan came from!' With that Omnitron looked at Incendius when he finished his sentence. He then turned back to the rest and continued his rant.
'And don't think for a moment that any of you are off the hook if he gave the order! Most of you knew what was up and didn't question it! In my book that makes those on the mission just as responsible! Your suppose to be the best and you couldn't capture a common street thug!'
Tomboy wasn't going to have any of this and stood up to say something. 'Hey! I don't see....'
'I DON'T REMEMBER ASKING YOU A SLAG FRAKING QUESTION!! This ain't a discussion! This is me telling you how you fraked up your first mission! You'll be lucky if we don't reprogram the lot of you into sanitation droids and ban you on Junkion until your sparks burn out!'
Tomboy just sort of shrunk out of site after Omnitron yelled at her right into her face. Omnitron was on the war path and it didn't look like he was going to stop. That is until Latyrx7 and Hoist walked in.
Calmly the two Renegade elders entered the room and looked at what was going on.
'At ease Omnitron. Its time for the Renegades to report.'
'Report? Sir they ought to be thrown into the brig and stripped of....'
'Enough Omnitron! That will be all.'
If anyone thought Omnitron was loud, Latyrx7 seemed to be louder. The old Renegade walked past all the Renegades in the room. The place was so tense you could cut it with a anti-matter laser. Latyrx7 walked up to Stinger's head, picked it up and examined it.
'The medical report shows that the cause of death was a steel beam that ripped through Stinger's chest. His spark chamber exploded, causing all his systems to over load. His brain was fried in an instant. Its actually amazing that his head wasn't crushed as well.'
Latyrx7 looked at the Renegades. 'While for the most part, the mission wasn't so bad until most of you thought explosions were a good idea. However, the entire mission may have been compromised from the beginning. Isn't that right Incendius?' Latyrx7 looked at Incendius with a hard stare.
'Some of you witnessed Incendius have an episode. But I'm afraid it was something else. Incendius, Phasmatis wouldn't come clean about the past you two share or the control he has over you. Before I send you back out with the team, its time they understood just what it is between you two.'
Onix smiled wide behind his faceplate. He had been leaning against the wall quietly just watching the spectacle. H wanted to interrupt to take credit when Omnitron had given Incindius an accusing look but there wasn't much time before Latryx7 and Hoist walked in. As Omnitron walked past Onix had his detonator in hand and tossed it a couple of times.
"I am sir, but not about killing Stinger. That was just bad luck, but a chance we took. I did bring that building down perfectly though, and with only a couple of charges. Had I not Roadtrain would have a hole through his head and Stinger may have still been dead, The building was loosing its structural integrity as it was and he wouldn't have made it out before it toppled. I brought it down in the safest way possibly to ensure no collateral damage."
Onix said with respect, and most of what Onix said was true, the part about killing Stinger however didn't bother him. He felt that he probably wasn't the only one in his group that wanted the guy dead after all their trouble.

"Onix is correct sir. With Incendius temporarily out of action, I assumed command. Stinger had a blaster to my head, and I didn't have enough time to find out everyone's position and decide on the best course of action. I went for the only available option and ordered Onix to detonate the charges. The blame falls squarely on my shoulders and I accept any punishment that comes my way. As Onix said, the building was unstable, while trying to apprehend Stinger, we both fell through the floor. Had I not ordered Onix to blow the charges, the building could have collapsed and caused massive collateral damage as well as killing civillians."
Deadbolt decided to try and remove some of the tension.
"Sirs, any word from Incognito and Hardstrike? And was the information we got from Atlas of any value?"
D-Fib scooted around behind Hoist and Latyrx7 and flashed Deadbolt and Roadtrain a smile and a thumbs up.

Incendius was about to open his mouth when Onix and Driveby opened theirs. He was completely ready to take the fall for this. He wasn't going to see Roadtrain punished for his mistakes- Primus knew he wasn't. "I condone everything that Roadtrain did in my stead, sir. What happened was a result of my sluggish reactions, and my loss of control. I told him that I would need his experience. I was totally right. Where I was slow on the uptake, he was totally prepared to make the call. Where I was conservative, he did everything necessary to bring Stinger in. And when that looked like an impossibility, he made up for my... 'episode', the structural damage that I caused, and helped protect the lives of those around him. Truth be told, sir, I'm not a patch on him when it comes to command. We couldn't have done this much without him."

When D-fib gave the thumbs up to her team, Omnitron shot her a look, causing Latyrx7 and Hoist to look behind them. D-fib took a hint from the expression of the two Renegade elders to get out from behind them and stand with the others.
Latyrx7 listened intently to what everyone said, now it was his turn. 'In another situation what you did may have been the right thing, but he's another way you could of handled it. Roadtrain, your helmet please.'
Roadtrain took off his helmet and gave it to Latyrx7, who handed it to Hoist. 'Maximum firepower, three shots.'
Hoist threw down the helmet on the floor, placed a foot on it and fired. The helmet only bared a burnt mark. 'The building did more damage to Roadtrain's armor then Hoist's blaster. Even though Stinger had the drop of Roadtrain, the rest of you should of got in position and took him down with a non-fatal shot.'
Latyrx7 picked up the helmet and gave it back to Roadtrain. 'Your going to have to do better then that in the field. While I admire your efforts at protecting the innocent, you have to look out for your team as well. With is the next issue to address....'
Latyrx7 turned back to Incendius. 'Phasmatis was seen using a device within his wrist will in a cell. The power of that transmission was strong enough to boardcast to Cybertron. Computic tracked a signal that occured at the same time as Incendius' episode. We all ready know that Phasmatis brought Incendius to a functional state. What I want to know is just how much control he has on you Incendius and what he's planning to do with you. The team deserves to know the truth before they trust you with their lives.'
Hypershot half listened as he leaned against the wall. He wondered about how much longer this telling off was going to take and was starting to regret not going with Hardstrike and Incognito. Surely they were doing something far more interesting at the moment.
