With Swindle’s assistance, Blast-Off’s scans had successfully encircled the backwater mudball where everything had changed so drastically for both sides of the war. The munitions expert seemed proud of himself, touting that it was just some skill he had picked up. That was fine with the space warrior just as long as those skills continued to serve the Combaticons and not simply switch to the highest bidder. Of course, even Swindle’s talents could not locate the Constructicons, who seemed to not want to be found. Onslaught appeared to be okay with the idea of dealing with Motormaster first. After all, Scrapper could always be brought into the fold at a later date.
“Yes, it appears that the Constructicons are well hidden down on the planet, and I do suspect that they are there and not elsewhere. Since the original Earth base was destroyed, it would make sense that they would be needed to build another one and would also need to remain well concealed from the Autobots in order to do so,” Blast-Off pointed out as he continued to manipulate the scans on his own console. “As for the Seekers in the middle eastern region of the planet, I’m detecting Starscream’s signature amongst them. Seems he’s abandoned the Ultrax in favor of some action. It wouldn’t surprise me if Shockwave took advantage of his absence, Commander Onslaught.”
It was then that Vortex spoke up, apparently happy with the worthwhile nature of the interruption he had to previously endure. My spark bleeds, Blast-Off thought as the interrogator accessed a terminal near Onslaught and then sent out a list of potential military vehicular alt modes he had quickly compiled to the other consoles on the bridge. The space warrior glanced over the list and found its contents to be well suited for each of their needs. It even included the Boeing X-37B space plane that Blast-Off had discovered while previously browsing the ship’s database for an Earthen alternate form. The top secret, unmanned spacecraft suited him well and was really the only military air vehicle that was capable of reaching orbit. All others were simple jets or bomber planes, none of which had anything to do with space flight.
“Thanks for the list, Vortex,” Blast-Off reluctantly acknowledged the interrogator, giving him a nod before turning his attention back towards Onslaught. “Well, I’ve already chosen my new alt mode, sir. With your permission, I’ll head on down to a CR chamber and initiate the change.”
