Situated in an old abandoned mine between La Puente and Walnut, in Waest Covina, L.A., the Autobot ship Orion sits parked in the deep pits of the mine. Outside, SHipwreck stood tall, on guard in case of an enemy attack. On board, Rumble Prime is holding a meeting with his fellow Autobots - Prowl, Hoist and Ratchet and new comer Ironsides.
"Well it's like this Prime", continued Ratchet, "We traveled deep cross-country and what we should've found were green pastures, rolling hills, things what makes Earth such a rich sometimes even beautiful planet. WHat we found instead were metal hills, pastures that were now covered in metallic plating, and not laid down by human or Cybertronian hands either. It's an unnatural phenomenon, and it's spreading, twice the scale it was last week..."
"Undoubtedly Prime. When the US goverment dumped Megatron and his cronies down there, parts of the All Spark would still have been embedded in him, and there's o telling what that may have done to the Earth's eco-system", explained Ratchet, "It's not like Cybertron's eco-system, as well as the humans they have other creatures they call 'wildlife' that are being effected by this, If it continues at it's current rate, over time we could me talking about Earth resembling a mini-Cybertron!"
"Megatron's plans? - or the humans?", corrected Prowl crossing his arms at the table., "They are the ones who shoved our enemies in the deep blue see, now as a result they've polluted their own country, and maybe others nearby..."
"Whether it is our fault or the humans is unimportant", interrupted Ratchet, "Until the others - ours and the Altech Autobots get back from rescuing Optimus and investigating the Decepticons new HQ, we won't know what to do about the sutuation.."
"Maybe we should take a break...", interjected Hoist, "Prime looks a little stressed. Remember it's only been a three Earth weeks since fighting that big ship-bot. Which reminds me, what exactly did happen with you and Optimus aboard that Decepticon warship? One minue Speedway and I are heading back to the shuttle for you and Optimus, the next thing we know the Decepticon ship gets clobbered and starts blowing up.
Although we had no choice but to depart it make's me wonder what happenned with you and the other Decepticons up there?"
"Hey ease up Hoist!", warned Prowl.
"I'm just asking! I have to keep an eye on his mental and pyhsical stress levels, and I can't do that unless I know the full story!"
"You couldn't help being shot Prime", offered Prowl, "Besides, with the extra power of the Al Spark within Starscream, it's lucky you came out alive at all!"
"We've got extra problems as well", added Ratchet, "It may not be high on everyone's priority list but our stasis chambers are getting pretty full. I'm repairing those I can, but we just don't have the facilities like we do on Cybertron, in short, we can't keep taking losses like this Prime!"
"Forgive me for suggesting the obvious", begun Prowl, "But might it not be prudent sir if we fly the ship there, rather than travel by road. "We can maximize our arrival time whilst minimizing the amount of human casualties in the area"
"Hey, what about the storage problem!", piped Hoist.
"This is hardly the time or place now Hoist", reminded Ratchet, "We can worry about that later. Prime, with all the anti-feelings against the Transformers on Earth at the moment, Prowl's logical reasoning is sound.."
"There's none", replied Ratchet as they traveled the long corridors to the bridge, "All our resources are stretched. What about Shipwreck?" asked the Autobot.
"He could always be held using the magnetic clamps, or using the Tractor beam", answered Prowl.
"It'd use to much energy!", chipped in Hoist at the rear, in ever defense of how much energy the Autobots used.
On the way to the bridge they passed another Autobot running in the opposite direction who began pointing behind him, "Rumble Prime Sir, there's an argent message for you waiting on the bridge!", exclaimed the bot and continued on. Finally the three bots reached the bridge of the ship, as soon as they got there, Prowl took the pilot's station and began warming up the engines as he started the thrusters. At the main control bank of the ship's computer a light was flashing signalling the messase awaiting Rumble Prime...
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
