As Onix lead the way, more citizens began to come their way from different directions. Shouts of protest came from the citizens as in the distance, OCF troops were seen herding them about. The entrance to the underground passage D-Fib spoke of could be seen off in the distance.
The small mech turned to Hypershot and tugged on his hand. 'The big one's gone. Quick lets go before more police come, before they take us to the cells!'
Tomboy took out her blaster and double checked the EMP and laser charge. ***COM***'Orders understood Roadtrain! The EMP charge on the communication dish is in place with Incendius ready to trigger it, waiting on your call.'***COM***
Driveby didn't see any OCF, in the air or on the ground, move in on the Renegades. What he could see was small riots breaking out and OCF officers clashing with Omega citizens.

The small mech stopped Hypershot. 'No no! This way, I know a good spot to hide. Come, you don't look like slaves and the police will kill you right away if they think your anyone else. Come hurry, and the big one too!'
The small mech pointed to a garage. It used to be used for maintainance but was now closed down. It would be big enough for Roadtrain to hide in.
Onix and D-Fib arrived at the manhole. Once they went inside, they would fine a air vent like tunnel with only space dust inside. No water but some moisture all about with the walls glowing a faint blue.
Driveby continued watching the sky. He saw, from the tallest building, the same building were the second team was visiting Atlas, a lone ship fly in extremely fast, In the distance, it looked different from all the flying OCF jets all ready flying about.
Incendius received his orders and double clicked over his com as a response. He raised his fist with the detonator, looked at the communication dish and pictured it exploding, then remembered it was a EMP device attached to it and not a fire bomb. He pressed the button and watched the dish station power down. He smiled regardless.

Xjar looked at Hypershot with joy. Clearly this robot was very young. 'Omega city is not what you think! Atlas, he runs this town you know, but not the way you think. He is cruel, he has tortured and killed the people here. Before he fooled us all, we thought working for him was the best thing for us. We though his strict way of life kept us safe. He fooled us, took away our freedom and our lives. When we tried to live, he stopped us and killed those who tried to escape. He keeps us drained of energy and only give us so much when we come to work for him. See?'
Xjar pointed to the robots outside, who had no energy to protect themselves from the OCF officers roughing them up. 'The OCF are no good! A bad as Decepticons of the past. They have murder hundreds of us! Many say they are in fact Decepticons and not the ex-Autobots they once were. I know Autobots would never do this, former ones or whatever!'
Xjar then looked at the sky through the window. 'The static storms began when Atlas took over. We took that as a bad omen. All I know is it makes it hard for us to communicate with the rest of Cybertron. Luck in Omega city, all bad.' Xjar's head sunk downwards as he memories of a hard life started to flood his head.
Onix and D-Fib then heard.... silence.
Before Roadtrain could answer Onix's message, he heard something like a low comlink frequency over his internal coms but couldn't zero in on it or hear much more the static.
Driveby could now see who the new flyer was. Records showed that it was the Targetmaster Pointblank who worked for Atlas.
Hypershot folded his arms and frowned more. "This is definitly not going to be as simple as we thought." He sighed heavily but forced a smile when he saw Xjar's expression. "Hey don't worry about it. Maybe we can do something about all this" he said putting his hand onto Xjar's shoulder. "But I'll have to get to Roadtrain, the big guy that was with me. He'll know what to do."

'Fight them! You must fight them! The slaves are being taken off the streets now, when ever something happens like a riot, the OCF pushes us into any building that can like this one. Almost everything here is empty. Its all fake! The nice buildings that look rich and new, all fake!'
Roadtrain entered the garage just as he heard the mech talking about the OCF and how they don't act like former Autobots.
"I don't know about that. Some of the things I've seen in combat. Some of the things I've done....." He trailed off, remembering the millions of years he spent hunting Decepticons.
He shook his head and snapped out of it.
"Any word from the others, Hypershot?"
+++COMM+++ "Driveby, I'm sending you co-ordinates of our position. Meet us here before we make the next move. Onix, D-Fib, I didn't see anything falling, but after you told me about that, I got a burst of static through my COMM. Get to your next objective ASAP. Incendius, get over to your next objective, we're going to need darkness to cover our tracks if we want to take out that surveilence station." +++COMM+++
Roadtrain made a quick check of his weapon before taking one of the EMP grenades off the belt and loading it into the launcher.
"I'm starting to like this place less and less. Why would there be a statue dedicated to the Guardian Robots of old?"
Then something clicked for Roadtrain.
"Argh! How could I be so stupid?! I'm older than this entire city! I know what was here before. Crystal City! The very same one guarded by Omega Supreme! There must be some significance why Atlas put Omega City here..."
D-Fib had her weapon in her hands. She was starting to get a little nervous, and the eerie blue glow wasn't helping.
"We're nearly there. Not the next manhole, but the one after. That should bring us up less than half a Breem from the transport terminal."
