Autobot City: Hidden Foundations

(OOC: With Ember's permission, I've started this new thread for the scouting mission storyline. A huge shout out to Marcus Rush for helping me with the opening description.)


Within a relatively secluded Peruvian valley that is surrounded by the Central Andes Mountains lies the future site of Autobot City. The valley in question runs from north to south and used to be home to the Incas. As such, there are ancient ruins from their long lost civilization scattered throughout the immediate region. Furthermore, modern day mineral mines that have been abandoned for many years can also be found bordering along the outer mountain range. Local geology includes a few glacier fed rivers that empty into a small lake with a surrounding jungle at the base of the valley. Higher elevations reveal a more desert-like and rocky terrain while the highest altitudes exhibit mountain peaks which are covered by ice and snow, an unwelcoming combination of elements that results in many of the trails leading into and out of the valley becoming largely impassable during the bitterly cold winter months.


Peruvian Valley - Central Andes Mountains

The shaft of light broke through the cloud cover overhead and struck the ground near the edge of a small lake. Once the intense brilliance had dissipated, the scouting team of five Autobots was revealed, a bit disoriented from the bounce but no worse for wear. It didn’t take long for Prowl to shake off the effects of the trip as he began to scan the vicinity for any signs of indigenous life. Thankfully, the only organic creatures detected in the immediate area were harmless in nature, consisting of a variety of birds, small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. There were no humans found to be nearby and hopefully it would stay that way.

Turning to face the scouting team, the military strategist gave each of them a curt nod before speaking. “Okay, team, we’re here. My initial scans indicate that we are alone save for the local wildlife, most of which pose no threat to us. However, keep your sensors attuned for any signs of humans that may eventually wander into the region. Infiltration protocols are to be fully adhered to. You can move about in robot mode in the harder to traverse areas just as long as there is no potential for human discovery. Otherwise, use your vehicle modes where applicable. We’ll begin scouting here at the bottom of the valley first and then slowly make our way into the higher elevations. Rewind, your job will be to record and document everything that you see. I want a detailed survey of the entire region by the time this mission is concluded."

Prowl paused for a moment to allow what he just said to register before continuing to address the team. “We are looking for the future home of 'Autobot City'. It will largely be underground, so look for any kind of cavern that is well concealed from prying eyes. We also need to make note of mineral deposits such as iron and copper that we can utilize in the construction of the new outpost. There are abandoned mines in the area that are promising sources of such materials. Furthermore, scan for natural gas and oil reservoirs that would be easy for us to tap into and siphon off additional energon in order to power our long term operations here on the surface. Any signs of human activity, or Decepticon for that matter, will be reported to me immediately. Do not engage unless you have my authority or you have no other alternative. Is that clearly understood?"

The military strategist cast his icy glare to each mech to ensure they were all paying attention before his features finally softened a bit. “Excellent. Now, if there are no further questions, let’s spread out and begin scouting the region. Nova Strike and Freeway, take the northern end of the valley. Bumblebee and Rewind, you two are with me. We will cover the southern areas. I want everyone to keep a secured comm line open so that we may easily communicate with one another for regular status updates or any problems that we may encounter. Be careful and good luck to each of you."

Peruvian Valley – Central Andes Mountains

Travelling via orbital bounce had never been one of Bumblebee’s prefer modes of transport, but in these times it was the means of transport. Maybe it was just the disorientation. Once they had materialized and that familiar light had receded back into the sky Bumblebee took a quick scan of the area. Of course he knew that Prowl had already done the same…probably even before they had fully arrived.

Noting of importance showed up on any of his own systems giving him plenty of reason to relax, but only marginally.

From the surrounding flora and back to Prowl, Bumblebee focused in on their team leader as he briefed them on just what was expected from each of them. He had no qualms with keeping in alt mode when needed and using their bipedal mode when the terrain called for it…after all he didn’t want to have to explain to Magnus that they had been seen by a native.

Bumblebee’s attention perked when the rest of their mission was finally revealed. Locating an area appropriate to begin construction on a new base…and not just a base, a city. It was fantastic…frighteningly fantastic.

The yellow mech began thinking of the possibilities of having such a structure on the surface would have. Of course they were stationed at a base prior to this but that one was their ship and it had been sunk in one of the Great Lakes. A city was just…so much larger.

The small scout sent a nod in Prowl’s direction as he moved to join the tactician and Rewind. With another quick optical scan of the area Bee looked back up at Prowl.

“You mentioned that there were abandoned mines in the area…maybe we should locate those and see it they’d be a suitable option to build our new home. We might even get lucky and find a mine to build in with mineral deposits and several sources of energy inside."

Prowl looked down at the approaching minibot and regarded him with a smile. “The mines are a good place to start looking, Bumblebee. It’s possible that the tunnels could lead to deeper underground caverns that would be large enough for our new base. Bear in mind, however, that the Ark-22 will likely serve as a central hub to the overall city. Therefore, we need a way to land the ship inside the cavern without drawing too much attention to ourselves. It’s quite likely that we may have to blast or dig our way inside as whatever entrances the humans have dug will just not be large enough by any means. It’s either that or we find a different spot. Still, it’s a fine starting point if only for the energy potential it could yield. Now, let’s go. There’s not a moment to lose."

The military strategist gave both Freeway and Nova Strike a curt nod before motioning for Rewind to follow him and the yellow scout. Prowl remained in robot mode as he moved away from the lake and into the concealment of the surrounding forest. The sounds of the indigenous wildlife flooded his audio receptors like a swarm of hungry insecticons. Thankfully, there was nothing to be concerned about as none of these organic creatures could do any harm to an Autobot’s chassis. Still, they were a bit of an irritant and made it difficult to hear more important sounds such as any possible human activity that may enter the area without warning.

After hiking through the dense woods for almost a breem, Prowl stumbled out onto a primitive-looking dirt road that appeared to have not been traveled in quite some time. It ran south through the forest and would likely lead to one of the mineral mines of the region. The black and white glanced back over his right door wing to make sure both the scout and the cassettebot were still with him before walking to the center of the roadway and transforming into his Nissan GT-R police car mode. “Okay, it's alt mode time, Bumblebee," the military strategist said as he then opened his driver’s side door to the tiny archivist. “Hop in, Rewind. My windows should be tinted enough so that no one will realize you’re not organic. If worse comes to worse, you can always transform and tuck yourself away into a seat cushion. 'Bee, don’t forget to activate your holomatter avatar. We’re going incognito for the time being. It doesn’t look like humans have used this dirt road for awhile, but you can never be too sure. Better safe than sorry."

Nova Strike released a rather loud stretch and yawn as his intakes absorbed the rich nitrogen air into his manifolds. His limbs reached out and cracked several gears and sprockets right into place and out of stagnant stations. "Earth huh?" He spoke as he rubbed down his torso trying to brush away the invisible effects of the bounce transport systems. He was never a fan of the mode of transport, then again given his line of work bounce networks were too easy to trace. Give him a drop pod any day.

Still he had to hand it to Blaster. So far no Decepticons had arrived to cause them trouble or respond to the massive surge in ambiant energies. Which meant one of two things, the Decepticons were too preoccupied with their Borilium Balonia Sandwich festivals or the Autobot communications officer had managed to outwit Soundwave's monitoring skills yet again.

The ranger allowed his tense body to finally relax and take in the surrounding sights. Magnificent trees lined the massive basin, intertwined with bushy vegitation. Nova Strike marveled at the lushness of the planet he had been assigned to explore. "So... these green things are the dominant forms of life on this planet. Definitely seems to be the most abundant."

His attention was snapped as Prowl began distributing patrol assignments. "Northern shore of the valley and lake." Nova's sensors immediately painted the range he was being ordered to investigate. His optics narrowed as several hidden structures began to register faintly on his HUD. Still he detected no motion nor technological imminations from those blocky marks on his monitors.

"Alright Prowl, we'll keep in touch. There are a few areas of interest along the northern edge of the river valley that has peaked my curiosity." Nova Strike tapped the isoliniar sensor package he had strapped along his right wrist and exposed a small slip from its internal mechanism. He then turned to Freeway and once again slapped the diminuative mech on the blind spot of his shoulder, covertly depositing the slip between two sensor pads. "Alright short stuff. Lets see what this rock has to offer. Faster we get this done, the faster we can get back to the frontlines."

Nova Strike transformed into his vehicle form, a Blue Ferrari Modena with custom tinted windows, curves along the wheel wells and a large segmented passenger dome. Instantly Nova remembered that this was not a combat operation and immediately retracted the large cannon that protruded from the center of the passenger dome and corrected the seals. He kicked over his engine and allowed the throbbing power to reverberate through the ground. Flocks of birds took off from their branches as the roar of his engines shook the trees around the Landing Zone. "Heh, had to get that out of the system." His engines fell silent as he activated the dampening fields that muted the raw surging energies his interior produced, rendering him all but silent.

"Lets get this show on the road."

Bouncing from orbit was not the worse way to travel and it certainly was quick, this time it had gone very smoothly for Freeway who nodded his impressed and set a personal note to thank the team who serviced the bouncing unit. The part of the planet they had bounced to was not without its organic life forms. The local aliens were probably doing various organic processes which Freeway had taken the time to read up on and then instantly wished he hadn't, it was all very revolting and he had been sorely tempted just to delete all that memory but then it might provide for some fun jokes down the line.

Being paired with Nova Strike wasn't too bad, at least that mech seemed to know how to get things done and might even have a sense of humour. Though Freeway wouldn't think of Nova Strike as being in charge of the duo he was happy enough to let the bigger mech choose the direction of travel since he had the sensors and all.

He watched Nova Strike transform into his vehicle form, the first time he had gotten to see an Earth design. It looked pretty sleek, clearly designed for top end performance, “Glad to see we are thinking along the same lines," Freeway said and transformed into his own vehicle form, something called a Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

He instantly began to regret his choice of design. While undoubtedly it performed exceedingly well on roads the kind of terrain they would be tranversing would not offer a chance to go very fast, “We'd get this show on the road if there were actually a proper road. You show the way I'll bring up the rear," Freeway started his engine, got ready to drive.

As the disorientation of the bounce wore off - it always hit the cassettobot a bit harder than full sized Autobots - Rewind glanced around, taking in the majestic alien scenery with wonder. Earth was so strange and different from Cybertron, but it was grand in its own way. Rewind began recording his observations even before Prowl briefed them on their mission.

Rewind nodded and jumped into the driver's seat, settling in neatly. He glanced about to document their starting surroundings even though they hadn't embarked yet. This sort of assignment was one that the tiny archivist could thoroughly enjoy.

"All set, Prowl! Recording for posterity."

Rewind sat straight in the seat, looking about like a protoform that just set foot in Iacon for the first time. Getting paired with Prowl and Bumblebee suited him just fine. They certainly wouldn't get off track or be lead astray with Prowl heading their expedition team.

Peruvian - Hidden Valley: Northern End

Nova Strike carefully turned to avoid a large tree trunk that had been torn from the ground during what appeared to be a sliding of the soil several months back. Enough of its root system remained intact to give the being a limited burst of life, but Nova doubted it would ever be at full capacity as it had been before its current situation. His tires hugged the moist ancient cobble stoned path as it wound through the valley towards the north shore. Relatively intact, though broken and in dire need of a rebuild... or at least pavement.

He readjusted his gyro sensors for the continual vibrations as he and his partner ventured further into the thick dense forest. Eventually as he came around a large granite boulder, one that had mysteriously rolled onto the road several eons in the past. Nova Strike adjusted his initial estimate from Eons to Years, temporal mechanics and conversions were never his strong suit.

With his mind struggling to reach the appropriate temporal conversion, Nova Strike's sensors sparked a proximity alert. He slid to a stop as only those in the racing profession could. His tires squeeled briefly against the broken stone as he finally came to a halt at the edge of a small foot bridge, broken in the center and unable to hold the weight of a full sized Cybertronian. He left plenty of room for the Throttlebot comedian to adjust or drive past unheeded.

"Freeway," he finally called out as his sensors were tuned further northward to the entire flank on the other side of the earthen battery. "There is an artificial construct a mile up. Think you're up for a little off road exploration?"

While Prowl elaborated on just what would have to be done in order to ensure that their new HQ’s location was safe Bee began to initiate several scans of the area and slowly let his systems bleed out in order to incorporate a larger locale. So far there were no immediate threats but that could change in a sparkbeat. With humans one could never be too careful.

The spy snapped back to attention flashing his unit Commander a warm smile before sending a slight nod in Prowl’s direction. Getting things moving was a welcome gesture to be sure. Without a word Bumblebee followed the black and white until the small group of three located a small but still useful dirt road.

As Prowl transformed into his alt mode Bee followed suit. Panels shifted and merged until the minibot had taken on his VW Beetle mode…he then activated his holomatter avatar as ordered. The image of a young woman appeared in Bumblebee’s front driver’s seat and quickly flashed the police officer and the cassettebot a smile. Bee revved his engine slightly before he finally headed out South on the road and toward what were surely the mineral mines.

Even at the distance they were at from their first targeted location Bee’s sensors could detect a faint energy signature…that must be radiating from several deposits.

“I don’t know about you, Prowl, but my sensors are tingling. I think there might be a mine up ahead…five megamiles to go. Should only take us eight kliks to get there."

Bumblebee pushed ahead slightly giving him a much better feel for just how intense the energy signature was. And as he suspected it was getting stronger.

“Once we arrive I’d like to head in just to be sure the location is secure and that there aren’t any surprises that might have been left behind by any human miners. I’m small enough to slip in and back out without being detected. Hope that’s all right with you."

Once Rewind was secured in the driver’s seat and ready to depart, the door of the Nissan GT-R police car slammed shut and Prowl revved his engines just as Bumblebee joined him, assuming his own Volkswagen Beetle alt mode. Without waiting any longer, the black and white sped forward along the dirt road with the yellow minibot by his side. The ride was a bumpy one as the military strategist’s vehicle mode was not intended for off road travel. However, it was nothing that the analyst could not handle nor would it be something he would complain about. More often than not, discomfort was something that had to be endured for the betterment of the Autobot war effort, even on smaller missions such as this one.

The cassettebot, however, might find the trip a bit jolting to his tiny systems which were likely not accustomed to rough conditions such as these. Prowl could be wrong, of course, but it was still a logical assumption under the circumstances. “How you doing, Rewind," the black and white asked, not out of real concern but simply to appear more friendly towards his fellow Autobots. After all, Prowl was well aware of how he was perceived within the ranks. It was an outward perception he needed to change to better aid him in achieving his goals, both long and short term. Internally, he would still be the same logical mech he had always been, one where emotion came second to pure reason and cold, hard facts.

As they continued their trek south, Prowl’s sensors began picking up the same readings that Bumblebee had detected, and those readings were getting stronger by the astrosecond. There was definitely a mineral mine up ahead, one that was hopefully devoid of human activity. “Eight kliks, huh? Well, ‘Bee, I say we double time it then! Why take eight when we can get there in four?" The police car accelerated, but allowed Bumblebee to pull just ahead which enabled the mission commander to keep an optic on his small comrade. The black and white didn’t want the scout to go off half cocked or anything. The yellow minibot was very brave and a real asset to the Autobot cause. However, after the recent capture by the Decepticons and subsequent torture by Darkride before being rescued, Prowl had sensed a change in the diminutive ‘Bot. It was only slight, but it was there whether the scout realized it yet or not.

Bumblebee then offered to head into the mine once they had arrived in order to ascertain how secure the tunnels were. Prowl considered the request for a moment before responding. “Agreed. However, I want you to be careful, Bumblebee. If there is any sign of instability within the mine I want you out of there immediately. Is that clearly understood? I can’t afford to have you trapped in there or worse." While Prowl did not want to see Bumblebee get hurt, he was more concerned with completing the mission with as few a problems and setbacks as possible. Having to mount a rescue in the middle of the jungle would only slow the proceedings down when there was still so much ground left the cover.

After another half breem, the mine finally came into view and Prowl immediately pulled ahead of Bumblebee in order to survey the scene first. The entrance, itself, was covered with wooden boards that were nailed into place, a sure sign that the mine was long abandoned. The military strategist’s scanners could only penetrate so far into the rocky hillside that now stood before the trio, but what he could detect seemed very promising. “I’m reading mineral deposits within the mine including gold, silver, copper and iron. I’m not picking up any signs of humans, but then again my scanners only go so deep. You’ll have to remove those boards first, which shouldn’t be an issue. Then head inside and do your thing. See if there are any larger mineral deposits deep within or even larger caverns that I could fit in without having to remain in my alt mode. Now, listen carefully, ‘Bee. I don’t want you in there for more than a breem or two. After that, you are to report back here immediately. Understood?"

Prowl then turned his attention to the small passenger behind the wheel of the analyst’s police alt mode. "Rewind, I want you to begin surveying the area outside of the mine if you haven’t done so already. Be as detailed as you can and leave no stone unturned. Once Bumblebee reports back, we’ll decide whether further exploration of the mine is warranted." The black and white then opened his driver’s side door to allow the archivist to exit. “I will stand watch for any signs of human intrusion into the region as well as conduct my own scans. Now, let’s get to work, team!"

As their scouting party set off, the tiny archivist soon found himself bouncing sporadically in the driver's seat. It was jarring to say the least and very uncomfortable for the small cassettobot. However, the archivist's own discomfort was the last thing on his processor. Some of the playback of the footage that Rewind will have captured on this venture might be too erratic to make sense of. The archivist prided himself of the reliability and accuracy of his accounts. He braced himself as well as he could, trying to stabilizing his head.

Bracing himself actually made the ride a little less uncomfortable to Rewind's pleasant surprise. He diligently surveyed the passing scenery outside of the windows when Prowl inquired about his well-being. It took a moment to register. Concern was not something the analyst really ever expressed.

"I'm alright, Prowl. Doing my best."

Rewind continued to do just that until Prowl finally rolled to a stop. He slumped in the driver's seat a little, grateful that the jarring bouncing had stoppped. He listened attentively as Prowl gave out his orders and hopped out of the driver's seat.

"Right, got it, Prowl. Hey, Bee," the tiny archivist turned toward bumblebee with a look of concern, "be careful in there! Approximately two years ago, there was a bad mine collapse in Copiapo, Chile, and the workers weren't able to get out for 69 days."

That tidbit of information Rewind had dug up while researching anything that he could find on human history, cultural, and current events. He was glad it had some use! Rewind jogged off to go investigate and document the entrance of the mine.

Freeway was spending his time on the road tuning his systems into the local Earth frequencies. They were all encoded of course some more so than others. Various signals across the EM spectrum contained either audio or visual data. There were a lot of them. Some were too faint to be useful coming from too far away for the signals to carry but even so there was just so much communication everywhere. The public ones were the easiest to crack open and would be useful for studying the Human culture, other ones were clearly military and required a little more effort to decode but once he had done it the first time it became easier. The good news was that there was no mention about any giant robots having been sighted, so that hopefully meant their arrival had gone unnoticed.

The path that Nova Strike was picking out for them was probably the best he could manage but it was hardly suitable for either of their forms, what Freeway was craving right now was a proper roadway but unfortunately his prayers to Primus were left unanswered as Nova Strike then suggested a further off-road excursion, “As long as the terrain doesn't get any rougher otherwise I'm going to have to transform," though his ground clearance was at least higher than Nova Strike's, “Lets hope the artificial construct doesn't have too many of the local inhabitants around. I'd rather not run into them until we've had more opportunity to study what they're like. Though they're probably as disgusting as any other form of organic life, trust me you don't want to know how they produce more lifeforms!" the Throttlebot said regreting going through some of the various broadcasts around already.

Central Peruvian Valley: Northern Shores - Ruined Temple

Nova Strike's progress was stopped by a thick grove of broad leafed trees arranged around a rather large boulder. Their roots interwoven under and around the imposing rock of ignious material made simply ramming the impediment impractical and probably damaging. For a quarter of a pictosecond the Ranger considered converting into combat mode and using his primary weapon to clear the overgrown cobbled road. As swiftly as the idea came it was rejected. Their target was close, probably over the next rise. For him to use the primary turret would not only incenerate the roadblock but probably destroy half the countryside... including the structures up ahead.

His sensors poured over the terrain east to west, trying to find the path of least resistance through the jungle vines and broad leaf trees. It was impractical throughout. To get to the target, the small river tributary and the river itself to either side of the structures he had detected earlier were impassible in vehicle form. Bridges were either washed out, rotted through or not built to handle the weight of two Cybertronians. The other fork in the road met with a similar roadblocks or obstructions.

"Looks like our little drive has come to a brief end Freeway," Nova's tone was less than surprised. They were in a jungle after all, vehicle forms were at natural disadvantages here. Without a command the Autobot transformed into robot form with a rapid spin. Faster transformation than many of his model contemporaries had given him advantages on the tracks throughout Nova Cronum and even the underground Polyhex circuits.

"Rest of the way on foot. Its not too far and I don't detect any mobile life signs. Maybe a Jungle Beaver, but no primates." With that Nova side stepped through a crown of trees, carefully pushing branches out of his path as to not snap them with careless motions. He did not need to leave evidence of his presence. After all less details of their visit the less inqueries of the indiginous fauna. From what he had heard of from Bumblebee, the local dominant species were fairly curious by nature and unable to resist a good mystery. He just wished he had made the time to actually do an image search of these curious inhabitants.

The trek through the thick grove and underbrush was without trial and brought Nova Strike and his partner to the edge of a crumbling stone wall. An impressive construction, or at least the segment still visible from the undergrowth, was at least a meter thick and lacked adhesives or other sorts of construction materials that would typically be used in this sort of fortification. Beyond his position he directed his sensors to the center of what he approximated to be a rather moderate sized surrounded space. Perhaps a small city or military fortification. Nova would need more details before he made that determination.

As his sensors mapped the region a small algorthym flashed acrossed his H.U.D. Almost immediately his optics narrowed towards a steep stepped artifical hill covered in vine, moss and other flora he could not readily identify. The signal itself, however, was recognizable. It was similar, by at least 69% degree of probability to the energy signature that Prowl had insisted their sensors be attuned to. "Ya know little partner. I think we may have found evidence of one of our first objectives. Its somewhere in this settlement, but I can't narrow it down beyond possibly that hill in the heart of the fortification enclosure. Signal is faint, and degraded by local radiation sources." He stopped briefly before placing a hand on the smaller mechanism's shoulder. "Guess you're up. Try not to break anything too old. Don't want to give local investigators a reason to linger in this valley."

With that he gave a light shove to push Freeway forward towards the Pyramid. "I'll check the perimeter for possible traces of this energy signature."

Peruvian Valley, Central Andes - Outside Abandoned Mine

Once the diminutive archivist had gotten out of the driver’s seat of the Nissan GT-R police car, Prowl was able to return to robot mode, his panels and gears shifting into place. The military strategist listened as Rewind warned Bumblebee to be careful, citing an incident where human miners were trapped underground for 69 Earth days before being rescued. Of course, the black and white had already alerted the yellow minibot about instability in within the old tunnels. So the cassettebot’s cautionary tale, while certainly told for the right reasons, only served to delay things if not to reinforce the police-bot’s own warning.

“Rewind’s correct, ‘Bee," Prowl interjected, not letting any irritation show through. “Like I said before, get out at the first signs of any instability." The black and white then moved passed the others and towards the entrance of the abandoned mine where he stopped and crouched down slightly. The wooden boards that covered the opening were only nailed into place, enough to keep a mere human out but definitely not enough to prevent a Cybertronian from entering. Within a few astroseconds, Prowl had grabbed a hold of each board and carefully ripped them away, discarding the half rotted wood to one side.

“There," Prowl said as he stood to his full height once more. “The entrance is clear for you, Bumblebee. Now, let’s get started....." the military strategist’s words trailed off as he received a transmission from Silverbolt on board the Guardian. It seemed that the Aerialbot Commander had finally awakened from his CR nap and was requesting permission to bring his squad down planet side. Prowl opened a comm line back as he stepped away from the mine entrance in order to give the yellow scout room to enter.

>>”Good to hear from you, Silverbolt. I assume you are operating at full capacity again. If that is the case, then you are ordered to rendezvous with us down here on the surface to provide air support. However, we only require your services for the time being and NOT the rest of your team. Having five jets flying around the Peruvian Valley would draw far too much attention from the locals. You alone will suffice. Once you have bounced down to my position, I will provide further instructions. I’m sending my coordinates to you now."<<

The wooded area was completely over grown grey fox’s scurried around the vegetation while in the tree’s Mantled Howler Monkeys bounded from tree to tree looking for food. The peace and quiet was shattered as the bounce from the guardian was completed the white light faded and what was left was the red, white and gold form of Silverbolt. The Aerialbot commander rose to full height out his crouched position his pale blue optics took in everything, he’d heard about Earth its strange organic creations the huge mountain ranges. He turned slightly and saw the same grey foxes that not 3 cycles earlier where scavenging for food where retreating into the undergrowth at pace. He stirred himself from his wonder and started to walk it wasn’t a long journey to where Prowl was.

Prowl and the small minibot Bumblebee came into view as the Aerialbot emerged from the tree line making his way over to Prowl “Taking an interest in the locals architecture Prowl” a hint of amusement in his voice the Aerialbot commander came to a halt a short distance from the pair as not to tower over the pair. He waited for the pair to finish their business his head swung around still in awe of the planet he found himself on looking up he saw the sky he found himself wondering what it would feel like to fly through the clouds.

Peruvian Valley, Central Andes – Outside Abandoned Mine

It was if Bee was standing on the edge of Hell itself. He knew there was nothing in the mine except possible mineral deposits and energy sources, but he still had an overwhelming feeling of dread. Come on Bee, you can do this. It’s just a mine shaft nothing more. He tried to convince himself. It didn’t last long as his attention was drawn toward Rewind as the small archivist sent his regards. Bumblebee flashed a reassuring smile and a small nod. “Thanks Rewind. I’ll do my best. And don’t worry I have no intention of getting trapped in there." I hope.

Bumblebee watched Rewind’s retreating form for several moments before his gaze fell on the still sealed off shaft. While he stared silently Prowl set into motion and quickly, but very carefully, removed the wooden planks and placed them off to one side of the entrance. Subconsciously Bee took a step back and away from the opening. That same feeling of dread washed over him once again drawing a slight shiver. I can do this. It’s not…I can do this.

“Alright. I’ll keep my communicator tuned in." With a deep intake the minibot took a slight step forward and then crouched down so he could take a quick glance around. The only light filtering into the empty space came from the small opening that Prowl had just unveiled…beyond that was total darkness. Once he was sure there was nothing he could slip or fall on Bee swung his legs around and cautiously slipped inside. He adjusted his optics in order to compensate for the darkness and pressed forward. “Wish it wasn’t so dark in here." He said aloud to himself. In reality he wanted nothing more than to turn around and head back to the ship. The darkness…the eerie feel of the vacant location…reminded him of his stay in that interrogation chamber. ‘Welcome to my torture chamber’ that’s what the sign said above the door. Another shiver raked over his body as he took one last look at the open entrance from over his shoulder.

>>"Okay, Prowl. There’s nothing in the first chamber. I’m moving in further. I’ll keep you informed."<<

By the time that Nova Strike finally called a halt to their rough road expedition the road had almost ceased to exist, “Next time we are going to have to do better orbital analysis of our terrain before choosing our vehicle forms an excursion," said Freeway as he transformed into his robot mode. He wiped some of the dust and mud off his blue paint. He was fine with getting dirty unlike Wideload he wasn't terribly vain but preferred it if people had as few reasons as possible not to make fun of him.

Moving through the trees was difficult enough thankfully following Nova Strike made that an easier task. Nova was a much bigger Transformer and essentially made the path for Freeway to follow, “I just hope none of these humans come across our tracks, they'll be wondering what on Cybertron or should that be Earth made them," he grinned at his quick turn in wit.

As they moved forward Freeway was still scanning the various radio communications, he picked up one on an Autobot bandwidth too. Even though it wasn't for him he was tempted to de-code it but he guessed it was probably from Prowl, possibly just a routine report back to the ship, if it was anything urgent Prowl would let them know.

“Tell me if you spot any humans, despite our disguises I suspect they might start asking questions like “How did this awesome sportscar get halfway up this pyramid in the middle of nowhere?" would be pretty awkward to answer," Freeway climbed over the wall and moved towards the pyramid. His radio scanner was good at telling him if humans were in the local area but it still took his optics and audio sensors to tell if they were getting close. Attention to detail though was something he was good at otherwise he would have probably been blown up by now by making a mistake on one of his own traps.

Climbing the pyramid, Freeway became aware of just how sophisticated Human engineering must have been in constructing this. It was clearly an old structure though just how long along it had last been maintained was anyone's guess. That it was still standing suggested it was safe to go up though a little part of Freeway's mind reminded him that the Humans who built had probably never envisaged a two ton robot walking up it, “Any idea what I'm actually looking for up here or have you sent me on a wild petro-rabbit chase?" he radioed Nova Strike, however he suspected that there definitely was something there due to the slightly degraded quality of the radio signals he was receiving. Something was causing a bit of interference.

The bright shaft of light that shot down from the sky drew Prowl’s attention away from Bumblebee for a brief moment. The military strategist knew that it was just the Aerialbot Commander bouncing down from the Guardian and thus he paid the newest arrival little concern, at least until the yellow minibot was well on his way into the mine. The black and white returned his attention to the small scout and nodded as ‘Bee stated that he would keep his communicator open. “Good luck in there."

Once Bumblebee had disappeared into the dark tunnel, Prowl turned his gaze over to the approaching Autobot flier, whose comment was a poor attempt at small talk. “I take an interest in everything when the security of my team is concerned, Silverbolt," the strategist said in a serious tone as he stepped in and shook the Aerialbot leader’s hand. “It's good to see you back on your feet again, and just in time. This mission is a simple one, but still very important nevertheless. We are scouting for the location of our future Earth base or Autobot City if you prefer. Freeway and Nova Strike are searching the northern end of the valley, while Bumblebee, Rewind and I are here in the southern region. Currently, we are exploring this mine that the humans have long since abandoned. What we need now is someone to fly aerial reconnaissance to give us a better overall picture of the valley. That’s where you come in."

Prowl paused for a moment, considering another option he now had available to him. With six Autobots currently on the ground, the teams could now be divided up evenly and the strategist knew the perfect partner for the Aerialbot Commander. "Rewind, change of plans. I want you to team with Silverbolt and help him conduct surveillance from the skies. Since you are small enough you should have no problem riding within the cockpit of his jet mode. As you have done here on the ground, I want you to record and document everything you see from the air. We need a clear view of the entire valley. Construct a detailed map as you go so that we may use it to better navigate across this harsh terrain. A lot of these trails are not on any human map, and thus we must construct our own. Make note of any human presence that you detect and relay their coordinates to me at once. Is that understood?"

The black and white then turned his attention back to the Aerialbot leader. "Silverbolt, you and Rewind will be our optics in the skies. Stay low and within the confines of the valley, itself. Avoid human detection at all costs. There are some low lying clouds in the area which should provide you with the necessary cover if you suspect that you've been spotted. When you’re finished surveying the lower regions, you may head to higher elevations and continue your observations. Are there any questions?" Prowl glanced from Silverbolt to Rewind and then back again before continuing. “If not, get a move on. Time is off the essence. Good luck to you both."

Prowl then received Bumblebee's communication from within the mine and gave a simple reply to the minibot: >>"Understood."<<

Nova Strike pressed his fingers down into the relatively soft soil, allowing the grains of rotting vegetation to flow through his splayed hands to join the gently trowled mounds of earth. His sensors flowed through each scoop, pouring data into his systems, his refined data banks began filtering out the information that was required for the mission and filing the entire body into data bursts that would be transmitted at the appointed time or by command of Prowl. Personally, the ranger found the task to be a complete waste of his rather valuable talents and time. Then again, being assigned to Optimus Prime's former command had not exactly been all that exciting for him anyways. "Soil analysis. The sort of work for a scientist, not a ranger," Nova's voice was low and pointed with the tediousness of the task he had been assigned.

Surface scouting, decidedly not one of his more favorite past times. He dug his fingers deeper into the earth's soil once again, pausing briefly as the tips of his right index digit struck the side of something solid. A simple grumble he patched into Freeway's communique frequency, in time to hear the smaller mechanism ask what exactly it was they were supposed to be hunting for. "Got to admit it Shortstack, I am not to sure what it is we're looking for. All I know is its got something to do with that energy signature Prowl wanted us to scan for."

His left hand retracted into its wrist compartment. A soft click extruded a small air blower, the kind used to uncover mines and other boobie traps left by Decepticon defenders on more hostile worlds. He flicked it on and began dusting the artifact he already begun to uncover. "Probably going to be some sort of crystal. Red or Blue or something. Not really sure, never seen this stuff before." With a puff of dust and debris the artifact was cleared from the muddled ground. A tug at one of the roots caused a large chunk of clinging to the face of what appeared to be a plaster mural.

The ranger's optics narrowed as he began recording as much data as his sensors could comprehend. "Hey Freeway, I am sending you a visual. Some sort of holy relic or whatever. Its that radiated thing on that carved pedistal I am transmitting now." Nova transmitted the fragmented and damaged image. It was incomplete, a pair of bipedal weapon holding figures, one on each side of the alter with a broken wedge cut through the heart of the alter itself. Only the base of what could have been an idol, and an elbow were visible.

“Shortstack? Shortstack?! I might be short but I'm not a stack, Sparky," said Freeway testily, he did not enjoy having any kind of nickname. He climbed further on up the pyramid seeing if there were potentially engravings or art on the stonework that might potentially show up anything useful about this culture. There was some but a lot of it was to do with their religion, he climbed further up, “We probably should have brought some scanning equipment with us instead of just relying on a ranger's sensors. Your sensors are good for tracking Decepticons not for geological surveys and energy analysis. As my sensors, well lets just say if tracking things down is what Prowl wanted then he needed the moldy green Throttlebot, not the dashing blue one,"

Freeway got near to the top of the pyramid, close enough to take a peep over the top of it, he did not want to risk going to the very top and being spotted by any near by Humans. Nova Strike then sent a visual over to him of whatever he had discovered, “Yep, that's definitely looking some kind of something. Don't move anything, we might be able to learn more about it from the Human art surrounding it. I know they are primitive but even they must have some kind of story about how they found it and why they held it in such high regard,"

Though he was by no means a scholarly Autobot, Freeway knew that keeping the crystal in its context would help them understand what the Humans knew about it. That information could be useful in them learning about it, “Of course what would be really useful is if we had some kind of science-bot with all kinds of sensors who could tell us within five seconds exactly what it is. I'll come to you, two heads are better than one on a brain teaser like this and the view from up here isn't going to win the Must See Sight for Solar-3 Award,"

Peruvian Valley, Central Andes – Inside Abandoned Mine

Being excessively cautious was not something Bumblebee usually did. That was something Prowl did, or even Prime, but now, now things had changed. He had his guard down the last time, but that would not happen again. From the holster on his hip the small espionage expert drew his laser pistol and pressed further into the darkened mine. Once more his optics adjusted to the low light that was barely trickling into the depths. Sooner or later there would be none leaving Bumblebee alone in total darkness. Oh Primus please let my lights work.

At Prowl’s short, curt reply Bumblebee huffed. The least the black and white could do is show a little bit of concern, but we were talking about Prowl here…epically cold Prowl. With a shake of his head Bumblebee pressed forward.

A short while later and there was nothing…at least nothing he could see physically. The yellow mech stopped suddenly the sound of his intakes the only thing breaking through the utter silence. He didn’t know which was worse; not seeing or only hearing himself.

“Okay, Bee. You can do this. There’s nothing in here that’ll hurt you. He’s not here. None of the ‘Cons are." Mentally psyched to move on, Bee took one hesitant step but stopped once more. “It’d probably help if I turned on my lights." With a shaky chuckle the headlights adorning his chest lit casting a bright glow throughout the shaft he was now standing in. Nothing. As in no mineral deposits, no humans and certainly no ‘Cons. He breathed a sigh of relief and opened his comm link with Prowl.

>>"Nothing in the second shaft. I’m movin’ on. Hopefully I’ll be able…"<< Bee cut himself short as his scanner began to pick up something in one of the lower cambers. Unfortunately from his location he could not determine if it was something that was occurring naturally or if it was something else. >>"…my sensors are picking up something. Not sure what it is. I’m gonna go and check it out."<<

Silverbolt was taken aback by Prowl shaking his hand it wasn’t often that prowl got tactile with his welcoming gestures. He hadn’t earned the nickname the autobot Shockwave for nothing usually cold and aloof even more so than Silverbolt himself. The tall autobot listened as Prowl outlined the details for his mission in the valley aerial recon and he’d have a passenger the diminutive Rewind even smaller than Bumblebee who he’d caught a glimpse of vanishing into the darkness. Prowl finished up with his briefing it just left him with one question but he kept it to himself for when Rewind wasn’t in audio range to ask Prowl that particular question it wasn't the thing to question a superior officer in front of the troopers.

The Aerialbot turned and called out to his smaller colleague “hey Rewind let’s get this show on the road, not sure how long this cloud cover is gonna last” he transformed into his alternate mode a sleek B1 bomber his wings where outstretched his access hatch to his cockpit. “Might be a little cramped in there but I’ll try to make your flight as smooth as possible” it sounded corny even Silverbolt thought that but he was covering up his nerves flying even at low altitude was still enough to set his nerves jangling but he was focusing on keeping Rewind safe.

Rewind wasn't too far away when Prowl called for a change of plans. The tiny archivist jogged back over to notice that Silverbolt had arrived. The assignment was practically the same as the one before, except this was in the skies. Which...was preferable actually. Rewind had no wish to accidentally run into some of Earth's non-humanoid lifeforms.

"Understood, Prowl," was the archivist's short reply.

"Right!" he said to Silverbolt as the Aerialbot commander transformed into his alternate form. The diminuitive archivist climbed up into the cockpit and settled into the seat. An aerial point of view would speed mapping the area along significantly. Although, it would make seeing humans on foot a tad harder. But...hopefully there wouldn't be any around.

"All set, Silverbolt. Up, up, and away!" Rewind said in his usual cheer.

Prowl nodded at his two subordinates as both Silverbolt and Rewind accepted their new orders without any questions, at least none that were audible, anyway. While the tiny archivist seemed eager and ready to get going quickly, the military strategist sensed a bit of apprehension in the Aerialbot Commander’s demeanor. The flying mech clearly had something on his processor but was for some reason keeping it to himself. At first, the black and white considered simply leaving it alone but then thought the better of it. If any member of his team had a legitimate question regarding the mission then they should speak up so that there would be no misunderstandings of what was to be expected of each mech.

Before Prowl could say anything, Silverbolt had moved away and transformed into his B1 bomber mode while Rewind wasted no time in climbing into the cockpit. Regardless, the strategist wanted to make sure that the Autobot flier was good to go and thus he approached the Earthen jet with a look of seriousness on his faceplate. There was no room for error here. So, any uncertainty, no matter how minute, needed to be addressed.

"Silverbolt," Prowl said as he stood over the B1 bomber. “Before you transformed you appeared to have a question for me, but you remained silent. Is there something on your mind that you wish to discuss or are you fully ready to commence with your assignment? It is important that we are open and honest with one another if this mission is to succeed. Therefore, speak now with any questions that you may have as it might be too late to do so later."

As the black and white dealt with the Aerialbot Commander’s unwillingness to ask a simple question, Prowl received Bumblebee’s latest transmission from within the mines, indicating that the yellow minibot had detected something unknown beyond the second shaft. Opening his private comm line, the military strategist sent a simple response: >>”Proceed with caution, Bumblebee. If you find something, report back to me immediately."<<

Silverbolt
heard Prowl ask him about his unspoken question “wasn’t important it won’t impair the mission in anyway” the doubts however minor where not relevant to the success of his mission brief.

The Aerialbot commander was looking forward to testing his engines and his alt mode as he throttled up it took him a couple of hundred metres to get airborne he wasn’t sure if Rewind hadn’t been shaken to pieces by the rough makeshift runway as his undercarriage left the ground the incessant rattling and shaking stopped. His wheels lifted up just before the tree line the trees bent and swayed as his frame’s backwash brought a rush of air past them. As soon as he was airborne his large wings spread further to their maximum width to encourage lift at the slow speeds he’d be flying. His heading was set for the end of the valley “So Rewind what’s best for you to get the maximum camera coverage if I fly wing tip to the floor or upside down?" the Aerialbot commander demonstrated the manoeuvres he wanted to get the right angles for the archivist before they started mapping the valley.

He banked gently at the end of valley putting himself in a holding pattern his wing tips creating air vortexes as the cool air met the on rushing hotter air rising from the ground. Silverbolt hit an air pocket his frame shuddered but made only minor adjustments unlike his early flights where he’d over compensate for everything from crosswinds to turbulence. As a back up to Rewind Silverbolt started to calibrate his own sensors for terrain mapping work.

“Let me know when you’re ready to start videoing the terrain”
