***COM***'With all the reading and time spent in Hoist's H-Lab, I know a lot about fire arms. FTL not so much but I know their history. Like we discussed back at base, lets listen to all the questions Atlas asks us and if someone else has an answer posed to someone else, internally comlink it. Uh oh, Uplink, I think Atlas likes you?'***COM***
Computic's expression changed from confidence to surprise for a moment when Atlas took Uplink's hand to greet her. 'Uplink. I am Atlas. It is a pleasure to meet someone of your stature. I must say Deadbolt, keeping this one away from me at the Skytoucher Palace is a crime. Now lets begin shall we?'
Just as Atlas was about to lead his company downstairs, Neuroblade spoke up. 'Master look!'
Neuroblade pointed towards the city. A large section of city blocks began to blacken as they lost power.
***COM***'It has begun.'***COM***
Atlas continued looking across his city. 'Interesting. Neuroblade, send Pointblank and Blastmaster to make sure that none of our citizens have been hurt. I'm sure the OCF can handle a simple power failure. All the more reason to have my guests here to help me with my business. Now come, I have so much to tell you all.'
The group entered a elevator and soon when down a few levels. Atlas, who's attention was on the Uplink, spoke to the group. 'As I am sure you know, Omega city wasn't much until I took over. I saw that this once proud area needed to once again stand tall, what with it's history of course.'
'Your referring to Crystal city right? The city from the legend of Omega Supreme and the Constructicons?' Computic, the history buff knew his stuff.
Atlas looked at Computic only for a second to acknowledge him a yes then looked back at Uplink. 'Yes. Quite correct. The city was beautiful and gave much to Cybertron. And since I have been given much, I want to give back to Cybertron as well. So I have made a city for all, that is, for all that work hard. And I can say with pride, that all that live within the city walls call this place home. You yourselves may never want to leave here every again!'
As Hardstrike and Incognito jogged down a hallway towards what appeared to be the hanger. ***COM***'If your head is in the game then speak with the internal coms! Is this Cryptica person the fembot that has you worked up? How would I know if she's special OPS?'***COM***
As the two entered the hanger, Hardstrike pulled Incognito down behind some fuel drums as he remembered, after checking out the buildings security specs, that there was a camera close by. The two then saw a shuttle they recognized from the hanger in Unicron's head; the Nova Red. They knew it was only used in undercover work.

The elevator opened as the group came to there floor. Atlas took Uplink by the hand and led her out first. The others followed as Neuroblade left the elevator last.
The group walked past several robots who appeared to be at work, each discussing amoust themselves, talking with electric pads in their hands or carrying supplies all over. Also, a few guards were patroling the area.
Computic commed the group internally. ***COM***' Now that were inside, I can scan for Hardstrike and Incognito and hopefully their com signals if their talking between themselves. Unless of course they've been caught....."***COM***
Atlas had been ranting on about the building after Quickshot had mentioned something about his own, but then got to talking about his fleet of ships. 'And yes, my ships. As you have may have noticed, Omega city security is the best on Cybertron! The only way in or out of the city is through the air. No land base vehicles, except for my own supply trucks of course, are allowed to enter on the ground. Only shuttles are allow to transport people in and out.'
'But doesn't the static storms that Omega city often experiences make it rather hard for airborn travel?' Asked Computic. Static storms were actually a very terrible thing and Omega city did have constantly.
'Umm, yes. But when it comes to security, he who controls the skys has completely mastery of his domain, Check your histroy vids, Megatron dominated Cybertron for centuries with his fleet of seekers.'

Atlas turned around and stared at Quickshot. He then looked at Deadbolt. 'I certainly hope he's better with light speed drives then trying to sound wise! I walk my kingdom with supreme confidence. One day all will see.'
Computic was going to suggest to Quickshot to remain quiet or just feed Atlas' ego, but then he thought he began to pick up something on his communication scans that sounded like Hardstrike.

If he could, Computic would face palm right there and then.
'I didn't get rich gambling. I made my wealth by claiming it with educated maneuvers.' Said Atlas. 'Inform your friend he is not that important when I have a weapons and a FTL specialist already here.'
The group walked on in awkward silence for a moment until they came to some stairs. Atlas continued to walk up them until he reached the top and turned to the other down below. 'History is being made as we speak. In the millions of years Cybertron has been at peace, the planet and its race are ready to expand. Across the galaxy and beyond, Cybertronian technology and its way of life is ready to reach. Unpopular this opinion may be amount those alive today, but rest assured, history shall be kind to for I intend to write it!'
Atlas then turned back to face the doors, pulled them open and went through. Neuroblade came up behind behind the group and motioned them to follow.
The group went up and entered through the doors to behold a massive factory busy at work. Robotic drones busy flying in parts, drones assembing engines down an assembly engines. Massive turbo rockets were being shipped across the floor. The group walked through the activity, lead by Atlas, followed by Neuroblade.
