Onix wondered just how exactly Trypticon was beat but it wasn't important right now.
"So, we round people up and melt them down. All to build another space station out of them? Wouldn't it be easier to salvage buildings than to gather all the corpses and refugees too forge into a station?"

'A building that is still standing, even just barely, serves as base of operations if needed. The thousands of refugees scattered across Cybertron are not as useful. And, I want to send a message to Optimus Prime. He thinks he can save all of Cybertron's citizens. I shall make sure that they serve a purposeful function.' Scowled Megatron.
Arms crossed, Torquemada scowled at this new mission, hardly beneficial and worthy of that of his scientific talents. "How easy some had jumped into Megatron's lap..", thought the seeker, "Already it is easy to tell whom the nodding lapdog's were, those who sucked up to Megatron without even hesitation! Anyone who dare thinks they can appose him is inanely stupid or severly insane! Not even a talented seeker like himself would think that I could ever best Megatron"
But then I lust not for power! Not leadership at least...", he mused to himself.

With a hard stare of the optics, Megatron inspected Sidewinder and examined his demeanor. 'I am in need of a mind such as yours. When I would call upon the talents of my scientists for this task, it would seem that I need more then what is at my disposal.'
Soundwave then approached the two and stood close to Megatron. With a command from his leader, Soundwave projected a holographic schematic from his chest. Before everyone was the blueprints of a massive engine.
Megatron continued. 'Behold Decepticons! The mighty planetary engines of Cybertron. Constructed eons ago by those who understood Cybertron's true purpose and kept secret by the Cybertronain council who would deny us of our true destiny. Clearly, these engines were suppose to move Cybertron through the universe to dominant every area of space. To bring the wrath of the true warrior to every species of every known and unknown part of the galaxy. Once they are repaired, I intend to reactivate the engines and bring glory to Cybertron. To transform our planet into the war world that fate would have it become. Sidewinder, you have been selected by me to deliver this task, do you accept?'
Sunreaper looked at Sidewinder, wondering what he would say. He imagined that if Sidewinder refused for what ever reason, death would be the outcome.
When he saw the schematics Sidewinder fell instantly in love. He stared in awe at it during the whole speech. When he was asked wether he would accept the task he turned to Megatron and without hesitation said "Yessir! It would be an honor"
Torquemada wondered if Megatron was either a compete genius or a complete nut-job. The planetary engines? Should such a feat be accomplished? Such a dangerous feat, but no more than the time he himself tried to hook himself onto Primus's head and harness the raw power. He had to help in some way..
Would that make him as much as a puppet of Lord Megatron as Starscream? "This, this is different!", he reasoned to himself, "I am a radical! A revolutionary, and Starscream, whilst intelligent is also still a blundering buffoon who doesn't use his knowledge be becuase he's trying to get the Decepticon leadership I, I am different! I must have this! This is different! Reward, power, I shall be admired across Cybertron and the enitre universe with all the dark Energon for myself and death to any bot or con who stands in the way!"
Torquemada stopped his ranting inside his head and burst into approvel "Yes, yes! It can be done Lord Megatron! However you need all the help you can muster! I am but a mere scientist, but I offer my services to you, and the Decepticons to be of whatever help I can!"
"Now, I am beginning to sound like that wretch Starscream!... But I won't become him! I'll show Starscream and them all..." he thought.
Bomblast grinned when he heard Megatron's plan to reactivate the Planetary Engines. He loved the idea of Cybertron travelling through space and attacking other planets. He was really itching to get into a fight now. All the standing around and talking was getting to him. He wanted combat.
"Lord Megatron, when do you want your loyal warriors to go out and fetch your slaves, or turn them into scrap? I'll personally turn a lot of them into scrap for you!"
Powersurge had gone quiet again. He folded his arms and smiled, listening to the others. He would have volunteered to help with the Planetary Engines, but seeing as he was a warrior and not a scientist, he figured he'd be better rounding up some slaves or turning them into scrap. He didn't want to run the risk of doing something wrong on the engines and incurring Megatron's wrath.

Looking at Sidewinder, Torquemada and then Bomblast when the two of them had spoken, Megatron replied. 'Excellent! You three have the sparks of true Decepticons. But beware, despite your good intention, failing me will mean your most certain destruction. Now, to answer the question of when I want you to collect the raw materials needed, the answer is now! But before you venture out, one matter of business must be taken care of. Your group is in needed of a leader. Who here is bold enough to take control and become team commander? I leave it up to the lot of you decide, in combat!'
As Megatron finished his statement, Soundwave's chest opened up and out jumped Rumble and Frenzy. The two mini-Decepticons transformed and landed in the ground with Rumble announcing. 'This should be fun to watch!'
Vendetta looked around at the group. He felt he should be in charge, but his pride refused him to take the challenge due to the fact that he was afraid of losing face in front of the rest. Sunreaper didn't really care to be the leader, so he said nothing. Scatterdust tried to get lost in the crowd, he knew he wasn't powerful enough to take control of this group psychically. But one Decepticon did rise to the challenge.
'I, Steeler, make my claim to become team commander!' The brute stepped out of the crowd with his fist raised up. He saw this as his big chance to move up in the ranks of the Decepticons.
(ooc: The position for Team Commander is up for grabs for any player. May the best Decepticon win!)

Steeler watched Powersurge as the seeker traveled over head. He brought out his massive axe and swung it in a sweeping motion at Powersurge with keeping his shield up and in Bomblast's direction, to cover an attack from behind. 'Back stabbing fools! I shall make you regret attacking me!'

Steeler blocked the swing from Bomblast with his shield. As he readied his axe, Powersurge slashed his right arm, the arm holding the axe. Steeler growled, pushed Bomblast away with his shield and raised the axe to bring down on top of Powersurge.
Powersurge saw the axe coming down at him and jumped backwards, transforming as he did. In his jet mode, he flew in a tight arc around Steeler, then transformed and flew feet-first at Bomblast's chest, planning to push off the other Decepticon and attack Steeler.
Bomblast, however, had other plans. As Powersurge's feet connected with his chest, Bomblast grabbed the Seeker's left with his left hand and tossed him to one side before going in for another attack on Steeler.
Powersurge hit the ground hard and slid. He managed to recover enough to get onto his hands and feet while sliding. Once he came to a stop, he pushed off and sprinted towards the two larger Decepticons, eager to get back into the fight.
