Grunt 'grunted' at Reaper's commented. 'Ain't never been late and I never gave my commanding officers any grief. Always been on top of my game. As they say, "Come correct or don't come at all". Anyways, give me a breem and I'll be able to program the drones to do the rest on their own. I finally got things organized and more importantly, all the dangerous hardware is put away. If Dinoboss finds out who's responsible, then they can give the drones a break. Heh!'
Grunt was longing for an energon larger and looking forward to the cyber chess game he and commander Noble often had very few cycles.

Grunt then decided to find Metalingus since Shrieker wasn't showing up. 'Let me try getting a hold of Metalingus, since Shrieker ain't shown up.' +++com Grunt to Metalingus, where is your sorry crankcase? Have you seen Shrieker anywhere, over.' com+++
Reaper made his way to an area of the cargo bay that wasn't as busy as the rest. He stretched out his wings and then folded them back against his body. While the med-bot was severely out-dated, it had done a good job. He leaned back against a storage rack and spoke to no-one in particular.
"I can't wait to get off this ship, too much monotony."
Glitch shrugged, "I'm sure I can handle it from here! You may go about your business!", rasped the bot and crossed his arms as he began tapping the side of his face with his fingers, "There's no need for Convoy to hear about this, it was a simple... mistake. I'd appreciate it if you didn't.... mention it?"
In the Cargo bay, the thick metallic doors slid back as Noble Convoy appeared in the doorway, "What a mess.. So how's it -"
Before Convoy could finish or Metalingus could answer a sudden loud blaring of the Klaxon followed by an alarm call echoed through every tannoy system in the station..
"That's Shreiker's room!", yelled Convoy as the tannoy bellowed out , the station's lighting turned to a red-amber warning lights, flickering from one colour to another. Convoy got on his personal communicator without delay,
+++ Cybertron COMMS +++
Dinoboss, we've got a fire in crew quarters, me me outside Shreiker's quarters - STAT!
+++ Cybertron COMMS +++
Convoy didn't even wait for reply as he issued the orders thick and fast, "Reaper, Grunt with me, I might need your muscle!", barked the commander and headed out the door...
Dinoboss had already made his way out of security before convoy's message came through
"I'm already on my way, Sir!"
There was a hint of frustration in his speech patterns. Dinoboss was very into his job and didn't like it when even the commanding officer told him something that was already in his job description, but He did his best to not call out his superiors on this fact, something he would have done immediately had it been a lesser crew member.
Dinoboss made quick to the crew quarters and quickly got the few personel in the area out of the way.

Grunt didn't reply. He just went silent and began to focus on all the possibilities of what could have caused the fire. He knew, that if this as more then just an accident, that all this downtime he and the rest of the crew had would not help if it came to a serious situation.
Upon arriving Noble Convoy and Dinoboss slid the doors ever so slightly enough so that they were ajar, as they did thick white smoke came pouring out. Convoy grabbed one of the doors and began trying to pull it back, sliding it to his ride, but the motors had burned out.
"Grunt give me a hand with this door!",, ordered the commander. As the Cybertron did so, they both began to slide the foors back to the frame. More clouds of white smoke escaped and they could see that the auto-sprinklers had done their job. Inside was like a black burned out whole, as the first two entered they saw the shell of a computer console and a half-mangled & burned body of Shreiker lying on the floor...

Before Commander Noble could do anything, Grunt took a step forward just a ahead of him while his optics scanned the room. 'With all due respect sir, we don't know what happened here, so let me and Dinoboss check it out.'
Reaper had difficulty seeing into Shreiker's quarters with all the smoke and Grunt, Noble Convoy and Dinoboss in the way. But what he could see was part of the charred interior and a couple of burnt and mangled limbs.
"What in the name of Primus...."
Reaper had seen carnage in his time, both friends and foes. But it had all been in the line of duty. He'd never seen a comrade like that when there was no combat involved.
"Grunt....Commander...What do you make of it so far? Accident or.." Reaper paused for a moment, "...Sabotage?"
