Cosmos slowed down as the Ark-19 docked into the berth. He was disappointed that the Dinobots had only given him the bare minimum amount of communication during the docking procedures, but maybe they'd be more social when he saw them in person.
>>Understood, Grimlock. Tell you what, I'll meet you and your team at the docking bay entrance, and I can show you around the place. I'm sure you noticed we have a pretty big station here, so you and your team could probably use some help getting where you need to go.<<
Maybe Cosmos was being pushy, but he didn't think he was crossing any lines. The Dinobots were new here and they probably would need a hand in figuring out the layout of the shipyards. And despite their reputation, he wasn't going to give up on making new friends here.
As the docking clamps grabbed ahold of the Ark-19 Cosmos manuevered away from the large vessel, toward a set of doors just past the berth. After the flying saucer sent an electronic signal the doors opened, and Cosmos hovered into the station.
To Highcall's relief, Side Burn didn't ignore him, and in fact actually took a look at the texts within the datapad. The religous engineer brought his hands together with joy as he believed he saw the signs of another true believer.
He hasn't told me to leave or threatened me! Primus be praised, another may see the light!
Highcall knew just what to do next- he would recite his favorite passage from the Omega Datatracks, about how Primus would give them light in their darkest hour. No doubt the bot and his femme friend would be moved, and two sparks would be saved!
"When all the stars have ceased to shine, and the sun itself is-"
It was then that Highcall was interrupted by Warhaul drunkenly complaining. Though deep down he felt insulted by the technician referring to his beliefs as "muck", deep down the engineer felt he saw a lost mech in need of guidance, guidance that only Primus could give. After Side Burn offered the drunken mech a drink, Highcall turned to the blue Autobot and his companion.
"That won't be necessary, I think I can help him.", Highcall offered, "And please feel free to keep the datapads. Read them some more, I think you'll find them enlightening."
Highcall walked away from the two mechs and toward Warhaul. As easy as it would have been to convert the ones who listened, it was the ones who kept their audio sensors shut and their vocalizers running that Highcall felt needed the most help.
"Do you mind if I sit here?" he politely asked, sitting in the stool next to him before recieving an answer. Seated, he turned to face the drunken tech with a look of sympathy and compassion. He completely ignored the bartender who continued to stare at him with a scowl, all the while sending complaints to station security.
"I'm not trying to send anyone to the Allspark before their time. I just want to ensure that when their time comes, the Allspark will be waiting for them.", Highcall explained, looking deep into Warhaul's optics, "Vorns ago, Primus saved me from a Decepticon attack, and now I feel it's my duty not only to serve the Autobots, but to serve Primus as well."
The bartender placed a mug of energon substitute in front of Warhaul. Before the inebriated tech could touch it, Highcall took it away and kept it as far from Warhaul as he could.
"To consume more than you need is to embrace the coming of the Chaosbringer, from the Datatracks of Delta 7.", Highcall quoted, his optics still locked onto Warhaul, "Are you waiting for the all-consuming one, or is there something else that makes you forsake His light?"
Unlike the others, Sludge didn't have much to say or think about Cosmos or his welcome. He didn't much care for small, know-it-all, talky bots like the Autobot flying saucer, but since Cosmos had said nothing threatening or disrespectful toward Grimlock or the other Dinobots, he could tolerate him. Once the Ark-19 was docked, Sludge stood quietly as all the other Dinobots had their say. Of course he listened carefully as Grimlock repeated his orders again, by now he had said it enough that the Dinobot's least intelligent warrior had their story memorized. Of course Snarl and Slag gave their usual response to orders of non-violence, which roughly translated to 'we'll try not to hurt anyone, maybe.'
"Me Sludge can keep quiet.", the jungle warrior assured Grimlock, "Me Sludge don't like to talk to weak little Autobots either."
With Grimlock's orders given, Sludge followed the rest of the Dinobots out of the bridge. Since the Dinobot commander hadn't told him specifically where to go, he walked close to Snarl and his offer of a drink.
"Okay.", Sludge replied, "Me Sludge will have a lot of good time, because me Sludge don't think me ever learn technical stuff."
Alpha Shipyard- Berth-6 Corridor
Despite being inside the station now, Cosmos continued hovering in his flying saucer mode over the various drones and technicians that made their way toward the Ark-19. He wanted to be the first Autobot on the station to meet the Dinobots in person, and there was no way he could do it trying to waddle through a crowd in his awkward robot mode.
"Everyone clear a space for me to land!", the flying saucer announced as he neared the main entrance to the docked vessel, "Official greeter and guide coming through!"
Thankfully everyone heard him, and Cosmos was given a large enough area to land right in front of the door. Without incident his landing gear touched the floor, and what once was a green flying saucer had now changed into a short, stocky green and yellow robot.
"Just stay calm, Cosmos.", he said to himself, "They may be warriors, but they're fellow Autobots. Just keep cool and stay friendly and everything will be okay!"
Feeling as ready as he could, Cosmos pushed a big red button on the wall, and the door between the Ark 19 and the Alpha Shipyard slid open. Waddling his way down the hall, Cosmos tried as best he could not to look intimidated as five hulking mechs came toward him.
"Grimlock, it's an honor to finally meet you and the Dinobots in person!", Cosmos said as cordially as he could, his arms spread open in friendship, "I don't know if this is your first time here, but please allow me to show you around Alpha Shipyard!"
