Motto: "I'm not psycho...I just like psychotic things."
The Trion – Bridge

“You better watch yourself, Swoop. I’m not above tearing your beak off and shoving it up your aft section." The threat was very real considering it had come from Slag. The flamethrower turned his attention back to the terminal before him. His optics trailed over the expanse before they came to rest on the interface ports. “Frag. I can’t believe I’m gonna do this…" he grumbled lowly.

“Maybe everything isn’t so great on this ship. I’m reading some weird program going through the various subroutines, testing them and recording them."


Slag quickly stopped his advance and looked over his shoulder at Swoop. “Well, well, well. I guess this little tour ain’t gonna be all that boring after all." Slag chuckled darkly. The thought of an impending fight raced through his processor. The outcome: a painful death for the intruder.

It was then that Slag’s attention was drawn to the Dinobot Commander. They needed a distraction and this was perfect. Albeit unexpected but still welcome. But first he wanted to know just what kind of armaments the Trion was outfitted with.

He turned back to the terminal before him and slid his hands into the ports. Once he was integrated into the ship’s systems he brought up an inventory of the Trion’s weapons. She was packing some heavy artillery. Slag chuckled lowly as he ran through the list in his HUD more than once. “Oh baby, I think I love you."

"Slag, Snarl, with me. We heading to engineering, see if we can find who planting this program. Maybe stop him from doing worse to ship, at very least we make sure he not get away."


The sound of Grimlock calling out to him drew the enamored Dinobot’s attention back to the current situation. Someone screwing with the ship. Right. It’s game face time.

“Come on, Slag! Time to find us a spy! Crush him good and hard!" The Desert Warrior chuckled.


“Yeah, yeah. I’m comin’." Slag disengaged from the ports and made his way toward the door. He fell in step beside Grimlock and Snarl as they exited the bridge.

“This wasn’t part of the plan. Could this actually be some sort of ‘Con attack?" The flamethrower kept his voice low so only the Dinobot Commander and the desert warrior could hear. “Not that I’m against looking a gift turbohorse in the mouth, but this is just too convenient."

The Trion—Engineering

“Yes! In! Yeah baby," Warmonger shouted, before covering his vocalizer and looking around suspiciously before quickly looking back at the monitors: the disc was a blinking series of schematics and technical specifications that the disc was ripping from the core functions of the Trion and would be forthwith forwarded to Decepticon Intelligence. Thereafter, the disc would begin to upload a series of viruses that would cripple the Trion’s internal functions. And once that was done, it would not be too long thereafter before Warmonger received the promotion he had been so voraciously seeking.

The Decepticon infiltrator rubbed his actuators together in obvious glee before hearing what sounded like a series of heavy footsteps coming in his direction.

Who could that be? Warmonger hissed a silent curse. He had checked and re-checked the duty logs. None of the engineering crews were due back in this part of the ship. Everything was signed off on and good to go. It was precisely why he had chosen this time to make his move: he had a perfect window of opportunity between the final crew shift and the impending maiden voyage of this impressive ship. Of course, it wouldn't be all that impressive for much longer.

He couldn’t interrupt the disc now. He just had to hope it was one of the burlier guards doing a random sweep of the area. Dumb lugs wouldn’t notice a slicer if it was slicing into their own brain modules.

Warmonger moved off to one side of the engineering bay. If some mech actually did decide to stop in here, he could whip up a plausible, last-breem explanation for his presence.

Weapon: Energo-Sword
The Trion – Corridors

Grimlock grunted in reply to Slag. “Even if it not Decepticon attack, we turn it into one. If it attack or sabotage, me make move to take full command of ship. Technicians and bureaucrats probably be happy to turn over command to real warrior, combat veteran who knows what he doing. By the time they stop panicking at thought of battle we be too far ahead of them. If we really lucky though it be real Decepticon, then we get to do some fighting and less lying. Fighting always good and less lying always easier."

The Dinobot leader stopped as they reached the entrance to engineering. “If there is Decepticon in here me want melee only. Don’t need blasters and flamethrowers in engineering unless either of you think you smart enough to repair damage we do. Me know me not smart enough to fix engineering systems on high tech ship. Don’t need to take a crippled ship back to Earth.

Grimlock produced his energo sword, clutching it tightly in his hand. He did honestly hope there was a Decepticon on the ship. It had been far too long since he had fought a Decepticon. Even if it would be an easy kill, as he doubted any Decepticons inconspicuous enough to sneak into a shipyard would be powerful enough to give him a challenge, it would still be some sort of combat. Real combat, against a real Decepticon, as opposed to the training sessions and cheap combat they had encountered recently just weren’t satisfactory. Eliminating a real Decepticon would be terribly satisfying.

The warrior nodded at Snarl and Slag before stepping forward as the door to engineering slid open.

The Trion – Engineering

Grimlock stepped into engineering, slowly scanning the vast room of computer panels, generators and various other machines and equipment. There was a decent amount of background noise as the power core thrummed and indicators and alerts buzzed and beeped. He had the coordinates of the possible breach but it his line of sight towards it was blocked.

The Dinobot commander looked back at his teammates. He silently gestured for Snarl to head around the left and Slag to the right. They would flank and surround wherever this anomaly was coming from. If it was a Decepticon he wasn’t going to let him get away. Grimlock himself would take the direct route, energo sword in hand he moved directly towards the coordinates, hopeful thoughts of finding a Decepticon running through his head.

The Trion–-Engineering

Warmonger could still hear the muffled words coming closer, but was no more able to make out what was being said than he had been before. What became immediately clear was that they weren't just passing by. They were headed into engineering. Something had slipped somewhere. Warmonger silently cursed himself. He didn't know what it was, but he could analyze and clean up the mistake later. The disc had to be done ripping the information it needed. Subspace transmission could never be trusted from this great a distance. He would have to provide a hard copy of proof to Decepticon Intelligence. The Decepticons would get their first look at the schematics of the latest Autobot war machine and begin dissecting it, and the disc itself would begin dissecting the ship. Either path would prevent the Autobots from capitalizing on their massive investment. But he had to get out of here with the disc for that all to go as planned.

Whoever was in here now, they clearly knew something up, as the chatter from outside had stopped. As soon as they saw the terminal and what was inside it, they would really know something was up. Warmonger couldn't afford them that opportunity.

He reached down for his weapon. The mission had clearly reached its critical point. He would have to break cover now, incapacitate or kill the guard and make off with the data and let the subversive weaponry do the rest.

"Alright, freeze Autobo-"

Warmonger whipped around, weapon in hand, ready to fire before finding himself standing in front of one of the largest Autobots he had ever seen. An Autobot he knew only too well, especially after they had made their presence so forcefully known on this station almost as quickly as they had arrived--the primal gladiator and the rest of his team.

"-oh, slag."

Motto: "Transform and smoke 'em!"
Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
The Trion - Corridors / Main Engineering

Snarl followed Grimlock through the corridors of the Trion as they and the other Dinobots headed for Main Engineering. The Desert Warrior listened closely as the Dinobot Commander laid out his strategy depending on what exactly they found at their intended destination. Hopefully, it would be a real Decepticon spy. The less lying the better. The more lies they had to tell the more complicated things would ultimately get. Eventually, one lie would contradict another and then their true motives here would be discovered. While many of the Autobots on board the station were physically weak in comparison to a Dinobot, they were certainly a bit more intelligent. Still, they had come this far. There was no turning back now.

As they approached the door to Engineering, Grimlock gave the order for melee combat only in order to avoid destroying anything. “Got it, boss," Snarl replied as he pulled out his own energo sword. “Me know little about fixing things around here. Me keep to melee like you say." The Desert Warrior then turned around to look at the Jungle Warrior. "Sludge, probably not good idea to stomp around in Dino mode like you normally do. Might cause too much damage. Just use sword. Understand?"

Not waiting for a response from his huge comrade, Snarl turned around and followed Grimlock and the others into Main Engineering. The solar-powered mech gave his commander a return nod as he moved to the left side of the chamber. There was enough background noise to muffle his footfalls to an extent, but considering his large size those loud sounds would only help to a certain degree. Anyone who was paying attention would hear that five big Dinobots were now in the room. Snarl carefully moved past a variety of machinery and equipment, most of which the Desert Warrior had no knowledge of how to work. Thankfully, he didn’t have to. At least, not yet.

Approaching the coordinates from the left flank, Snarl could make out a mech standing near an access terminal. The plated Dinobot could not tell what exactly this individual was doing, but he was at the source of the intruder program that had been detected back on the bridge. Therefore, it could be assumed that he was up to no good. Was he a ‘Con spy? A turncoat? The Desert Warrior was about to find out one way or another.

However, before Snarl could do anything, the mech in question suddenly spun around, weapon in hand, ready to fire at Grimlock who had been coming up directly behind him. “Alright, freeze Autobo-” was all that Warmonger could utter before he saw that it was the Dinobot Commander, himself, who had discovered him. The spy’s words told the solar-powered Dinobot all that he needed to know. The unknown mech was definitely a Decepticon who had somehow infiltrated the station and was attempting to steal information regarding the Trion. It didn’t exactly take a rocket scientist to figure that out now. At least, if nothing else, this ‘Con had given them just what they needed in order to take the ship for themselves.

“No, you freeze, Decepti-scum!" Snarl growled at Warmonger as the Desert Warrior appeared from behind a computer panel, his sword held at the ready.

I'm on it,"<< Cloudburst quickly commed back, taking a look around to make sure everything was normal on the bridge. It seemed to be, but what did that really count for? Everything had seemed fine before now, too. In the next instant the bridge entry doors had slid out of the Autobot's path and he was headed for engineering.

“Kill joy” Slag grumbled. Here was his chance to actually get into a scrap with some ‘Con spy, or better yet some ‘Bot turned spy, but he hit a roadblock. A roadblock that was neigh impossible to maneuver around. Grimlock equals roadblock. Another grumble.

Slag clenched his jaw until it began to ache. What he wouldn’t give to get his hands on whomever it was they were looking for.

Pulling his energo sword the Dinobot flamethrower nodded toward Grimlock indicating he would be moving to the right as indicated by his Commander.

Once out of sight Slag slipped in between several generators and stopped at a location where he could see the mech they were there for. The corner of Slag’s lips curled into a sneer. This was it? This was the fragger they were looking for?

With a deep growl the enraged Dinobot stepped out from his hidden location.

"Alright, freeze Autobo-"


A chuckle escaped Slag’s vocalizer as he moved to bear his sword.

"-oh, slag."


Slag’s chuckle turned into dark laughter as he took a quick purposeful step in Warmonger’s. “You better pray to Primus because calling me will only get ya dead."

The Trion--Engineering

“No, you freeze, Decepti-scum!" one Dinobot retorted.

“You better pray to Primus because calling me will only get ya dead," another added.

The Dinobots had him caged in like a cyberfox. His optics shifted warily from one to another, taking on a more frantic pace as they did so. Like any Decepticon operatives who were trained to undertake covert intelligence missions, there were contingencies in place when this sort of thing happened.

Fighting his way out of this group of primally legendary Cybertronian warriors was so laughable it was ridiculous. Getting the data he had stolen back to Decepticon command was the primary objective, but that wasn't going to happen. The best he could hope for now was to take this ship out of commission, and hopefully the Dinobots with it. It would be his sacrifice as well, but some missions were worth the sacrifice. He had no doubts that Megatron or Shockwave would execute him for this failure. And then he would be relegated to the insignificant footnotes of history. A no-name Decepticon who had done nothing of consequence to win the war. His only hope for leaving a real mark on the archives was to do this.

"To the Pit with all of us then," Warmonger said, engaging a partial transformation sequence that revealed a number of explosive devices that were retrofitted into his carapace.

And the few scant astroseconds on the timer began to immediately tick away....

"Sludge, probably not good idea to stomp around in Dino mode like you normally do. Might cause too much damage. Just use sword. Understand?"


"Uhhh... Right." The jungle warrior mumbled as he shifted from his gargantuan Apatosaurus mode and into his still quite massive robot mode per Snarl's suggestion. He stared down at the hilt of his energo sword as he wrapped his actuators around the weapon and drew it from its sheath. He followed behind the desert warrior, who in turn was following behind their leader, Grimlock.

"To the Pit with all of us then,"


Sludge's optics widened in surprise as he looked over Snarl's chassis and took notice of Warmonger's internal payload. Slag was standing closest to the Decepticon, ready to advance further upon him at any moment. Sludge wanted to call out and get his fellow Dinobot out of harms way, but he wasn't one for issuing commands. He felt Grimlock was the only one who was fit to issue orders to his squad. The jungle warrior could only sit back and await a response from their leader, gripping the hilt of his energo sword and bringing it up into a more battle-ready stance as he grew anxious wondering what he ought to do.

Weapon: Energo-Sword
The Trion – Engineering

Grimlock watched events unfold in front of him in slow motion. He had been willing to let this Decepticon live long enough to explain what he had done. It would be better for everyone if they took the ship knowing whatever damage or sabotage he had done to the ship. You never wanted to take a ship into battle that could potentially blow up or fail on you abruptly in the middle of a fight.

Unfortunately when the Decepticon revealed the numerous explosive devices on him it meant there would be no time for any sort of interrogation or information gathering. Now it was just a race to see if Grimlock could kill him and then save them all before the Con killed himself and took everyone with him. It was a moment for no hesitation, not planning or plotting, it was time for action and instinct. It was the type of moment Grimlock was created for.

The Dinobot leader moved forward, his left hand lashing out to knock aside Warmonger’s gun arm. With his right hand he thrust his sword forward. The energo-sword, propelled by the Dinobot’s massive strength, pierced the Decepticon’s chest, cutting through internal workings, his spark chamber, spine and then out his back, impaling him on the weapon. It wasn’t very Autobot of him, but Grimlock really enjoyed that moment of snuffing out the Decepticon saboteur.

There was no time to revel in that feeling though. He doubted whether killing the saboteur would stop the bombs from detonating or not. In fact he was probably lucky they hadn’t gone off by now. Grimlock, lifted his sword up, the Decepticon still impaled on it. He quickly carried the Decepticon on his blade, jogging to the nearest escape pod. A swift kick to the control panel opened the pod and a swing of his sword sent the Decepticon flying into it. A fist slamming into the eject button sent the pod hurtling away from the ship.

Grimlock spun to face the Dinobots. “Brace for explosion!"

>>"Cloudburst, bombs in escape pod outside ship! Warn shipyards!"<<

The Dinobot braced himself against the frame of the escape pod hatchway. Even during this potential disaster he could see an opportunity. The path to seizing the Trion was laid out in front of them now. The tricky part now would be surviving the next few seconds. It looked like the battleship was going to see its real first test with a close range explosion.

The Trion--Corridors

Cloudburst was steadily running for the engineering deck as fast as he could. He wasn't sure what help he would be able to offer with the likes of the Dinobots already on the scene, but he would do what he could just as Countdown would expect.

>>"Cloudburst, bombs in escape pod outside ship! Warn shipyards!">"Alpha Shipyards! Code Theta!"<<

Motto: "Transform and smoke 'em!"
Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
The Trion - Engineering

The sight of numerous explosive devices emanating from Warmonger’s framework caused Snarl to take a tentative step back. The desert warrior’s processor immediately began considering a suitable course of action to render the saboteur’s payload moot. Perhaps stabbing the traitor through his cranial unit with an energo sword would do the trick, or maybe that would only succeed in killing the Decepticon spy while his payload continued to count down to oblivion. There was always the option of disarming the bombs, but none of the Dinobots had the capability to handle so many devices all at once. Not to mention, there was not enough time.

“Stay behind me, Sludge," Snarl instructed his larger comrade as he took a few steps forward with his sword held high in the air, ready to strike. His intention was to decapitate the intruder and then depose of the bomb-laced body as quickly as possible. However, the solar-powered mech didn’t get very far as Grimlock was way ahead of him. The Dinobot Commander made his move and impaled the saboteur with his sword before depositing the fragger into an escape pod. Without hesitation, Grimlock jettisoned the dead body out into the main shipyard and then warned the rest to prepare for the forthcoming explosion.

Putting his sword away, Snarl grabbed a hold of the nearest bulkhead and braced himself. Astroseconds ticked by and then it happened. The blast outside could be heard even within the confines of the heavily armored Trion. The warship shook violently as the desert warrior held on for dear life. The lights flashed on and off while anything that wasn’t nailed down or properly secured went flying everywhere. Debris hit Snarl on his back, but he hardly noticed in all the chaos that had erupted around him. The solar-powered mech would be fine as would the other Dinobots. They were all incredibly strong and could endure much more than this. Hopefully, the Trion would also endure and not be too badly damaged by the detonation.

As for the shipyards, themselves, Snarl had no idea what level of destruction would ultimately be wrought by the explosives. Regardless, knowing Grimlock as well as the desert warrior did, the Dinobot Commander was likely already plotting a way to use whatever mayhem ensued outside to their collective advantage. In the meantime, Snarl continued to hold on to the bulkhead and hoped for the best possible outcome.

Weapon: Energo-Sword
The Trion – Engineering

The Decepticon exploded quite spectacularly outside the ship. The escape pod he was inside was a pretty rugged vessel, designed to drop through an atmosphere if needed. It was naturally destroyed in the explosion but it did help contain a bit of its power. The explosion sent a tremor throughout the shipyard as alarms and klaxons went off. Autobots rushed to their emergency stations as the facility erupted in chaos.

The Trion was rocked by the explosion, being right next to it. Flames licked the hull, scorching the brand new paint job while debris crashed into the side of it. Fortunately the Trion was a warship and heavily armored even without any sort of energy shielding activated. The explosion gave the Trion its first battle scar, marring its otherwise pristine appearance.

The explosion also gave Grimlock an opportunity. Once the blast had subsided he moved to the nearest intercom and open a channel to the entire ship. His voiced boomed through the ship. “This Dinobot Commander Grimlock, all hands abandon ship! Repeat, all hands abandon ship! This not drill!" The saboteur had given them the perfect opportunity. While Grimlock didn’t think the ship was in any real danger he knew that in a secure, peaceful setting like this just the idea of a saboteur would put people into a panic. They wouldn’t all be thinking clearly or logically, and it would be easy for someone like him to take control of the situation.

Grimlock turned to Cloudburst. “Help get ship evacuated! Dinobots take ship out of shipyards, not know what other bombs or sabotage that Decepticon due to it. Can’t risk ship exploding inside shipyards and wipe everything out. Dinobots get Trion out of shipyards safely, then we can worry about sabotage on ship. Now move!"

“Swoop, find auxiliary controls and give us moving! Should be some sort of back up systems here, no time to get to bridge. Snarl, find some sensors and make sure everyone getting off ship! Slag, start disconnecting ship from shipyards. Sludge, make sure everyone but Dinobots out of engineering." While they moved to carry out his orders Grimlock began checking the ships internal systems. He didn’t think there was any additional sabotage, otherwise the Con probably would have tried to bargain with them, but he wasn’t going to take that chance, at least not completely.

Swoop began running his optics over the various control panels. It didn’t look like engineering had any of the fancy interfaces the bridge had, which was a bit disappointing. Still there should be something he could use down here to steer the ship, controls he could reconfigure somehow. He started working on a control panel, reprogramming controls to something similar to a standard ship’s helm controls.

The Trion--Engineering

“Help get ship evacuated! Dinobots take ship out of shipyards, not know what other bombs or sabotage that Decepticon due to it. Can’t risk ship exploding inside shipyards and wipe everything out. Dinobots get Trion out of shipyards safely, then we can worry about sabotage on ship. Now move!"

When a Dinobot told you to do something, especially a Dinobot who was also one of the most singularly feared Cybertronians in existence, you did it. Cloudburst really had no problems with that. They were breaching a few protocols, of course, but under the circumstances that seemed to be, well, the lesser of other evils.

Frankly, he was just thankful that the saboteur had not accomplished his mission and that the Dinobot's quick thinking had likely spared not only the ship but potentially the entire station. Who knew what the Decepticons' ultimate objective was? Cloudburst didn't. But it wasn't hard to guess, either.

Just that quickly, Cloudburst was off, helping other stray Autobot crewmechs clear the ship.

"Nice and calm! Please proceed to the nearest exit in an orderly fashion!" Cloudburst called out over the klaxons as one Autobot after another ran past him.

“This Dinobot Commander Grimlock, all hands abandon ship! Repeat, all hands abandon ship! This not drill!" came Grimlock's voice over the ship's intercom system.

"Is he serious?" one Autobot said, stopping just long enough to ask Cloudburst the question.

"Yeah. Very," was his reply, quickly brushing the Autobot along before joining the exodus once more. "Keep moving! Keep your circuits together!"

>>"CLOUDBURST! What in the name of Primus, the Allspark and the Pit is going on in there?!? I’ve got reports of an explosion, sabotage, alarms going off and now and evacuation order for the Trion! What is happening over there and who is giving these orders??"<<

>>"Ahhhhh...yeah...hey chief. It seems we had a Decepticon saboteur in our midst. Who knows? Maybe more than one. Anyway, he made his move but, uh, luckily for us and stupidly for him, he made his move while the Dinobots happened to still be on board. We're just evacuating the ship now as a precautionary measure then we'll run some sweeps and make sure the 'Con didn't do any lasting damage while he was in there. Grimlock appears to have the situation under control, sir. I'm sure this isn't the first time his batch have run into something like this hahah."<<

It was nervous laughter, but it was the best he could muster under the circumstances as he walked along one of the access bridges and into the hangar itself where other mechs were gathering and talking amongst themselves.

"All non-priority personnel are relieved until further notice. You'll receive debriefing communiques within the next orn."

Motto: "Transform and smoke 'em!"
Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
The Trion - Engineering

Once the explosion had subsided outside and everything had finally settled down within Engineering, Snarl let go of the bulkhead and took a glance at his comrades and surroundings. All of the Dinobots appeared to be no worse for wear while debris littered the floor as alarms and klaxons echoed throughout not only the room but the entire ship, as well. Grimlock, of course, wasted no time in taking charge of the situation, using the intercom system to order everyone on board to abandon the ship. He then told Cloudburst to help with the evacuation, giving the smaller Autobot some excuse as to why they needed to move the Trion out of the shipyards for the safety of everyone on the station. Like the gullible mech that he was, Cloudburst bought it and quickly left Engineering.

“Wow," Snarl said in a low tone, turning his attention to Grimlock. “Me surprised little Cloudbutt actually believed that slag." The desert warrior then quickly looked over at Slag. “Sorry, me didn’t mean you. Heh." Without delay, the Dinobot Commander issued more orders, this time to his squad. When Snarl received his instructions, he nodded obediently and walked over to the nearest security station. Unlike up on the bridge, there was no high-tech interface would mind meld his brain with the system. Instead, it was just an old school terminal. Simple and direct, just how the solar-powered Dinobot liked it.

Letting his actuators dance across the console’s keys, Snarl quickly accessed the security feeds of every camera on board the Trion. Each of the images showed various mechs running like scared cyber-rats for the exits, reacting in their own ways to Grimlock’s declaration to abandon ship. Some took longer to process the situation than others, standing around talking instead of evacuating. However, with the help of Cloudburst, the slow ones were eventually moved along, as well. All seemed to be going according to plan. "Grimlock, me watching security feeds. Everyone leaving as ordered. Soon, ship be empty and we can finally get out of here and back to battle." The desert warrior’s attention returned to the security console as his continued to monitor the video feeds.

Snarl had been away from the fight for too long and his increasingly grumpy demeanor clearly demonstrated that. While he had his doubts initially regarding Grimlock’s plan to steal the Trion, things appeared to be coming together nicely now. Soon, they could take the battle to the ‘Cons with the greatest warship in the Autobot fleet. That is, of course, if they all weren’t ultimately arrested and thrown into a cell at the Garrus-9 penitentiary. Snarl had already been trapped in stasis for countless vorns thanks to Grimlock’s actions. The desert warrior wasn’t about to endure more vorns stuck inside a tiny cell that was likely designed for a normal sized mech. He would go stir crazy if that happened. In fact, they’d have to extract his spark to get him to settle down.

Me just blame it all on Grimlock. Him leader. Him most responsible, Snarl thought inwardly with a sigh, hoping that things wouldn’t eventually come to that. Combat was what the solar-powered Dinobot craved more than anything, and he would find his way back to the front lines no matter what.

Motto: "I'm not psycho...I just like psychotic things."
The Trion – Engineering

It didn’t happen often but in this instance Slag felt regret after witnessing the death of the ‘Con. It wasn’t that he felt sorry, no not at all. No, he was regretful because he wasn’t the one to dispatch the miserable piece of scrap himself.

Slag let out a grumble as the shuttle exploded some distance from the Trion. Thankfully the vessel was far enough away so as not to cause any damage to the new Autobot cruiser.

“Swoop, find auxiliary controls and give us moving! Should be some sort of back up systems here, no time to get to bridge. Snarl, find some sensors and make sure everyone getting off ship! Slag, start disconnecting ship from shipyards. Sludge, make sure everyone but Dinobots out of engineering."


The flamethrower’s attention was brought back to the Dinobot Commander with Grimlock’s new orders. Slag offered a stiff nod before he jogged toward the ship’s docking terminal. His fingers swept over the keys on the console as he began to initiate the release sequence. He wasn’t concerned as to whether or not one was capable of interfacing directly with the ship from this location; in fact he preferred a more hands out approach. Sticking one’s hands in some port….ugh…not for the flamethrower.

One last keystroke and the docking clamps began to disengage. Slag looked up and glanced in Grimlock’s direction. “Docking clamps disengaged. Separation from platform in 2.2 breems. If you want everyone off this ship I suggest you get your afts in gear and usher them out now."

The Trion – Medical Bay

Thank Primus he left. Pharma ran his hand down the length of his face. It hadn’t taken long before he and Ambulon were at one another’s throat. It was no surprise. They didn’t get along and for the life of him he had no idea why he didn’t ship the medic somewhere else.

Well, he did know why….two reasons in fact. The mech was a former ‘Con. Keeping him within arm’s reach was a good way to ensure everyone remained safe. The second reason, and he’d never admit it to anyone, but Ambulon was a good medic. Not the best, but he was good.

Pharma let out a heavy sigh as he turned his optics toward the ceiling. “Ugh. Help me Primus…" he said lowly. Shaking his head the doctor stepped into the quarantine room. He made sure, however, to disable to lock from the inside….just in case.

The doctor had just begun to store several pieces of equipment when the entire ship shook….or at least it felt as though the entire ship had been shaken. Pharma grabbed onto a nearby shelf in order to stabilize himself, but the movements only jarred him causing the shelf to come loose and fall.

He tried to shift out of the way but he wasn’t fast enough to miss the edge of the shelf. It struck him in the temple hard enough to send him down to the floor where his head slammed hard into the floor. The Pharma’s optics flickered for a moment before they grew dark and his body went slack. The ship rocked again sending a small tray toward the door. The piece of metal connected with the keypad initiating the locking sequence. The room would be off limits until Pharma woke up and reversed the locking sequence. For now he was a permanent resident on the Trion’s maiden voyage.

Weapon: Energo-Sword
The Trion – Engineering

Grimlock grunted in reply to Snarl and Slag's comments. "Anyone not off ship by then become member of our crew. Probably be stupid, slow or weak mechs, smart, fast, strong mechs all get off ship easily. Ones left on board shouldn't give us problems. Once we off we take bridge, lock it down and get back to Earth and the fighting. Autobots on board can join Magnus and his group, strongest warriors will come to us on board Trion, best warship in the fleet. Real warriors want to be in thick of fighting, and that where me intending to take us."

The Dinobot commander couldn't help but feel a rush of excitement. They were going to pull it off, and they were going to come back to Earth as heroes, with the massive reinforcement that was the Trion. He would show the Autobots once again that his was the way to win this war, and smooth over any of the worries he suspected some of his Dinobots might still have about him after their absence from the war while being stuck on Earth.

"Swoop, can you pilot this thing yet?"

The Dinobot flier frowned. "Yeah, hang on, just about have the controls reconfigured. Its not going to be as elegant as flying it from the bridge, but I can get us moving and out of the dock. Just don't expect anything really fancy yet."

"Me not need fancy Swoop, me just need us out of here. Get us moving second we are disconnected. Autobots start asking questions of this take too long, and me not interested in talking. It time to get back to frontlines again."
