Riding up high into the sky, the team of Metalingus, Uplink, Quickshot, Deadbolt and Computic were all aboard on a elevator.
The elevator was round and its walls were made of windows. It shot up the wall of the side of Atlas' main coperate building, giving a view of the beauty Omega City.
Earlier, they had dropped off the other Renegades and flown in with the Nova Red, docking their shuttle. Quickshot's trailer was left behind in the ship and kept hidden inside, waiting for it to be called upon when needed.
Computic looked at the others and said, 'Wow can't wait to meet this Atlas, he sounds great!' while his internal comlink spoke to the others about what he really wanted to say. ***COM***'Everyone ready? It can get pretty crazy in there if this doesn't go right.'***COM***
Inside the garage of Atlas' main building, along the fleet of convoy trucks, the small compartment of one of the truck popped open once Hardstrike's fist punched it.
The two missing Renegades Hardstrike and Incognito scrambled out and ran inbetween the truck, guns drawn and making sure they don't get caught.
***COM***'I though those guards would never leave!***COM*** Said Incognito to Hardstrike via internal comlink so no one would hear them. ***COM*** "Ok, so you got us in boss bot, now what? Find Atlas? Contact home base?'***COM***
***COM***First things, first, let's get somewhere a little less onbious***COM*** concluded Hardstrike via internal comlink. ***COM*** "If we can find somewhesecluded, maybe with a computer terminal or several we can find out exactly where Atlas is, what securioty this place has so we don't go running into anything. We'll just have to do it real quiet like.."***COM***

***COM***'Good idea, our terminal hackers should come in handy.'***COM*** Incognito was referring to the terminal hacking device they were given for the original mission. They were small device that could crack security codes on computer terminals. The original plan was to use them in the hotel where the second team met Atlas and were equiped with them just incase they had to keep an optic on Atlas from afar.
They approached a terminal, Incognito motioned for Hardstrike to try it out while the he actived his cloaking powers to keep a look out.
Carefully, very carefully, Hardstrike placed the hacker device on the flat screen terminal of the computer. Small embossed metal segments on top of the device fanned out around the spherical disc like shape revealing three red segments that flashed red silently, on and off,, on and off. He waited to see if it would go green.
"Y'know if this goes wrong now, it's going to get very noisy and very dangerous, VERY fast!"

Computic had faith in his team except Quickshot. Too quiet he thought. While the sciencebot might be deep in some intellectual thought, something Computic could appriecate, now was not the time. But Computic knew he was assuming. He had a hunch that at least he and Uplink could keep Atlas busy with the lip service if needed.
The long elevator ride finally stopped at the very top of the extremely tall building. The doors opened up to reveal the roof, where guards were scattered every where. One guard greeted the team politely and told them to follow him.
All around them, statues of crystal surrounded them. Abstract and alien designs, all fancy, rare and of course expensive. Besides the guards, other robots were all around. Prehaps other scientists, operators or officers?
In the distance, the team could see two robots fighting in what appeared to be a sparring match. ***COM***'I believe thats Atlas and his body guard having a duel guys.'***COM***
Hardstrike's device worked perfectly. He was given full access to the system and could look up any information he wanted to. He saw a map of the building and a manifest of the amount of guards present in the building and where they were and their shifts. He was also given access to s schedule of some sort for incoming and out going shipments. Plus, he was able to access the video feed from this terminal as well.
Metalingus took in his surroundings as they were being led to Atlas. He began to examine the sparring match going on, looking at the fighting techniques for future refference. ***COM*** We will be fine team. Just keep to the story and this will all go smoothly. ***COM***
Quickshot continued to walk along with the others but still said nothing. He Observed everything in the hall without moving his head, making mental notes, guessing on design and composite of the statues, but most of all wondering what Atlas needed with him.

Computic took in the view from the roof they were on. He and the others could see all of the city from up here. He wondered about his team mates below and wondered if they made Atlas mad or blew their cover, that they would be sent off the roof to their dooms. He calculated that they were about 80 floors high. That would be a horrorible death indeed!
As they got closer to the match, it was reveal to indeed be Atlas and Neuroblade sparring. Each had a stun blade in hand, so they would not hurt each other. Neuroblade had incredible speed and skill, moving and dodging each of Atlas' swipes. But Atlas had the strength and could force Neuroblade back when their blades made contact. Atlas' file stated that he was an expert swords-mech and the two combatants seemed evenly matched.
Hardstrike tapped his thumb anxiously on the side of the display, although he was pleased it worked - he wasn't used to things going his way, especially after the Tronbayashi Maru test.
His thoughts turned back to Cryptica again, for the first time in ages, and just when he had managed to get his mind off her. This was all too familiar. It had bee pretty much the same when they first met, her pressing buttons - snooping? Was she hacking, it was almost exactly like this situation? "just like her..." he mumbled to himself...
Bringing up the footage from the security cameras he saw Deadbolt and his team sneaking up on Atlas. "Um seems Deadbolt has made his move on Atlas", informed Hardstrike trying to cover his unintentional out loud thoughts. "They security patrols and shooft changes are pretty much systamatic and wat you'd expect - patterened and regular like clock work. Or maybe that's just what they want us to think..."
Now HE was getting sceptical and cryptic, just like her.

Incognito didn't believe what his audio sensors just heard. He doubled back to where Hardstrike was and spoke quietly. ***COM***'Just like who? Who's her? And Deadbolt is here?What the?!'***COM***
Seeing the Renegades on screen, ***COM***'Bend me over with a rusty screw driver.... those guys showing us up. Hey just who are you talking about when you said her? Your head in the game bossbot?'***COM***
Hardstrike got the layout of the building allowing the two to move on. They began down a hallway and would soon figure out what to do next.
Back on the roof....
As Atlas turned to see who it was that yelled at the sparring robots, the sky above them boomed as the static storm got heavier. 'Ahh! My friends, so happy you made it. And what a chance for you all to see Neuroblade in action. The finest bodyguard in the galaxy.'
Neuroblade put away the stun sword and bowed the the guests.
Atlas came over to shake everyone's hands. 'Greetings, greetings. These must be the scientists you spoke off. Come, lets get things underway. Refreshments? My staff shall get what ever you desire. We have big plans to speak about. Now, which one of you was it that specialized in weapons and in FTL drives?'
Computic sent a internal message to all. ***COM***'Neuroblade is something serious on the hand to hand melee skills. Lets not make them mad until were off the roof, agreed?'***COM***
'Weapons! Thats me. Name's Computirx, I specailize in weapons.' Computic changed up his entire voice and manner from light toned nerd to a happy go lucky, highly energized robot.
