Decepticon Frigate The Obliteration

Homeworld of the Transformers. Drained and ravaged by thousands of vorns of civil war, Cybertron is a mere barren husk of once beautiful and thriving cybernetic world. While recovered enough to allow Transformers to move on its surface once again, it is still plagued by ion storms and any Transformer unfortunate enough to venture there without energon supply of their own is certain to face a stasis lock. - Cybertron forum is currently inactive.

Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
Bridge - Navigator’s Station

Blast-Off mostly ignored Vortex’s sarcasm, instead remaining focused on the terminal view screen in front of him. Once the interrogator had left the bridge for sick bay, the space warrior let out an audible sigh as he searched through the database of Earth space vehicles if they could even be categorized as such since these antiquated rockets and shuttles had an extremely limited range of travel. They basically served to only take their passengers into orbit and then back down to the surface again. These vehicles couldn’t even make it to the mudball’s own moon let alone another planet entirely. On top of all that none of the vessels in question were armed with any sort of weaponry, indicating that they were not used for military purposes.

What a disgrace, Blast-Off thought as he rested his chin on the palm of one hand. I’m never going to find a suitable alt mode if we have to stay for an extended period of time. I might as well just keep my Cybertronian form, anyway, since I’ll probably be regulated to orbital bombardment as usual. No one will see me up there all alone. The space warrior’s musings were interrupted when he came across a file on a top secret space plane called the Boeing X-37B. According to the data it’s an unmanned, shuttle-like craft developed by the United States Air Force. It’s believed to carry weapons of some kind. Although, due to the secretive nature of the vehicle, that aspect has not been confirmed. It’s better than nothing, I suppose.

It was then that Onslaught reentered the bridge and immediately addressed Blast-Off regarding the need to know the exact locations of Scrapper, Motormaster and Starscream once they had arrived in the Sol System. The space warrior spun around in his chair and gave the Combaticon leader a respectful nod. “Of course, Commander. Barring any unforeseen problems, I should be able to locate their signatures quickly once we are close enough to the planet." Blast-Off's attention was then drawn to a beeping sound emanating from his console as a signal came through on a secured frequency. After determining its origin and contents, the space warrior returned his gaze to Onslaught. "Sir, we have received coordinates from the Thanatos. They have already initiated their transwarp drive and entered hyperspace. What are your orders?"

Weapon: Oxidating Laser
The Obliteration--Bridge

"Follow their course, Blast-Off. I'm sure they know what they're doing," Onslaught said, bringing up a pair of information screens.

As for the rest of the empire at large, I guess we'll see, the Combaticon Commander added, as an internal afterthought.

The Sol system would be their destiny now. It was time to address new challenges and acquire new victories.

Blast-Off nodded when Onslaught instructed him to simply follow the Thanatos. "You got it, Commander," the space warrior replied before returning his attention to the console in front of him. Apparently, he would now have to serve as both pilot and navigator. It was probably for the best, really, as there were few others present with the capability to fly the Obliteration. Vortex could do it, but he was currently off the bridge. Then there was Brawl who was better suited in destroying things than guiding ships. Swindle was the only other viable option, but his expertise lay more in selling weapons and making trades, not being at the controls of a large battle cruiser. He would make an acceptable co-pilot, however, even if his processor was concentrated more on the next big deal that he could make.

Blast-Off punched in the coordinates he had received from the Thanatos and quickly initiated the transwarp drive. The Obliteration then entered hyperspace, following the Predacon warship's trajectory as they headed towards the Sol System. Once they arrived at their destination, the orns that followed would prove to be quite interesting if the recent attempted coup by Onslaught and Razorclaw was any indication. Of course, there was the inevitable confrontation between Starscream and Shockwave that would likely kick things off. The space warrior would simply lay low and watch as events unfolded, remaining ever loyal to the Combaticons and whatever side Onslaught ultimately chose.

Weapon: Automatic Acid-Pellet Gun
Vortex's Quarters

Vortex connected the last magneto strap to its coresponding clasp, sealing the make shift droid to the operation bed. He was rather quietly grateful that the quartermaster had been able to scrounge up another toy for his practice, he really had not been the same since the last one met with the unfortunate accident involving the desolvent fluids that ate through its processor. Still this one was very similar to the first, it had been programmed with a secret that Vortex needed to extract. The secret of his little game was to keep this thing alive long enough to extract said secret and as long as he wanted to inflict even more punishment. The first lasted a good mega cycle, and according to the sensor logs experenced extreme psycological distress and physical trauma. Vortex wished to double that time and triple those results before the next encounter with an Autobot prisoner.

Like most Combaticons, Vortex was a firm believer in Practice made Perfect. His motto was rather easy to remember and easy to involk every time he took hold of a sodering iron and pressed it against the unconcious droid. A simple twist of a wrench, a fusion of two wires here or there and the circuits that shut out pain readings from the body to the brain were disconnected from overall matrix. In other words, no matter how hard the target struggled, his or her pain was now a constant fact of the rest of their over all lives. He next began to surgically operate on the stasis lock circuitry... prevent the mechanism from passing out prolonged his own fun. Of course that would take a while to do properly, but he had plenty of time before they reached that dirt ball they were headed to anyways.

Bridge

As Onslaught continued to monitor the ship's sensors while still being lost in the midst of a sea of strategic possibilities, he noticed some familiar locations and signals beginning to register on the ship's navigation systems.

They were closing in on the Sol system.

The Combaticon Commander's circuits surged just a little. This was it. Their arrival here, one way or another, was going to alter the course of the Decepticon war machine. It felt odd to be standing right on the edge of what could be an all-out Decepticon civil war. Hopefully the alternatives they had in mind would avoid such a catastrophe, but he was sure there were any number of other Decepticons who were thinking the same thing about their own alternative plans.

Gladiator...you leave us too soon. And at too critical a juncture, Onslaught thought.

Bridge

Swindle wasn't one to brood on things, but the news of Megatrons death and the general cloud hanging over the bridge was getting to him. What had begun as simple plotting for profiting out of this had become a bout of deep worry.

I mean, are we going to lose the war now? If so, will the Autobots accept surrender? Would I be able to hide, or forced into some pointless suicide mission by the remaining leaders? Or will we too busy killing each other for the 'Bots to get involved at all? This is too heavy, I shouldn't have to be the one trying to puzzle it out!

Swindle began to wonder why he'd joined up in the first, why he'd let himself become a mostly-loyal Decepticon. The answer was a lot fuzzier now, after so many cycles, and with things so uncertain. Not that he could go back now. He was stuck as a Decepticon, even if the faction was sinking fast.

To distract himself, he looked back at the console before him. "Commander Onslaught, the Thanatos has made a successful exit from Hyperspace, close to Earth's satellite. Will I put us alongside her, or choose another location?"

Bridge

Onslaught considered Swindle's query briefly.

"Right alongside, Swindle. I want to see how the first few orns in contact with our fellow Decepticons take shape before I jeopardize our advantage."

Coming in, they would have the Thanatos' impressive weapons array to back up their own. If they were, for some reason, walking in to a warzone, the Combaticon Commander was reasonably sure that they would be in the best position to capitalize on the situation if they were working in tandem with the Predacons. Depending on how events continued to take shape, that would probably be true for the forseeable future.
