Deep Water Crisis

Earth is a beautiful planet, lush with life, overflowing with energy and ripe for the taking. The Decepticons want to conquer it and harness that energy for their own purposes. The Autobots want to keep it out of Decepticon hands. This forum contains their battles and struggles all across the planet.

Ocean Floor

Krunix, moving a few meters closer to the ongoing engagements, tapped his comm line active, " Ramjet, message recieved, fall back to just beyond my location, and I'll cover you." Ramjet, like many Seekers Krunix knew, was a thug and battlefield bully, but he was a fellow Decepticon and he knew when to fight and when to fix. That Krunix could respect, given the overzealous nature of most Seekers.

Krunix tuned his comm back up to the Decepticon-wide Bandwidth, "Skywarp, Thundercracker: The Autobots are using holograms in the field. Chose targets carefully. Blitzwing, suggest moving to assist Hellion with her target, if you're operable enough. If not, fall back with Ramjet for field repairs. No further orders from Starscream or Soundwave."

Krunix consulted his HUD and looked over the data-stream from the battle so far, then flipped his comm back on, "Be advised, battlefield telemetry suggests that there is one, possibly two, Autobots currently unaccounted for outside of the ship. If anyone spots the hologram-operator, suggest engaging immediately above all other targets."

Surveying the site, Krunix couldn't help but feel that, no matter what damage the Decepticons inflicted here, they wouldn't be leaving with the mission's primary objective...

Ocean Floor - Near the Crash Site

The first thing Blaster realized when the silvery light of the transport beam disappeared was that he was in the water, not on the bounce platform of the freighter as he’d expected. The second was that there were Decepticons everywhere. The communications expert wasted no time with curses, though he fully intended to let Hex have it when he got his hands on the little jerk, he just ran for cover, ducking behind the first rock he could find.

When no immediate fire blasted his location, he quickly took in the battlefield situation.
Ironhide was locked in combat with a female seeker. Blitzwing was in the middle of what was obviously the center of the battlefield, not far from - damn - Hardhead’s stasis-locked, headless body. Further back, he could see Skywarp and Thundercracker engaged with some ‘bot he wasn’t familiar with, and beyond them a Decepticon newcomer and Ramjet. He knew Hound was present somewhere from monitoring communications earlier, but, for now, the scout was nowhere in sight.

“Well this is just wonderful," he muttered, then forced a grin and stepped into the character that everyone expected from him, the heroic and unflappable Voice of the Autobots.

“DON’T WORRY THE CALVARY’S HERE!" he bellowed, amplifying his voice so it could be heard all over the battlefield. He fully expected to draw fire, but that was all part of the plan, since he really was a walking squad of reinforcements. “Okay guys get your butts out here," he said in a more normal tone, opening his chest cavity and ejecting his cassetobots. As they transformed, he began issuing orders, “Eject help me keep Thundercracker and Skywarp back. Ramhorn see what you can do with Blitzwing. Rewind, Steeljaw, see if you can get to Hardhead and get him out of here."

"’Bout damn time," Ramhorn growled, as he lowered his horn for a charge straight towards Blitzwing’s prone form. Only seconds later, Blaster and Eject rose up and began firing at Thundercracker and Skywarp, the range and environment would decrease their weapons efficacy, but they were just trying to keep the seekers busy and away from Blackstrike. Meanwhile Rewind and Steeljaw crept off through the seaweed and coral, attempting to circle around without being seen to rescue Hardhead.

***

Ironhide’s head snapped to the side as Hellion’s fist slammed into the side of his face. The femme was strong, especially for a seeker, and there was no doubt that she hit hard, but she could pound her fists into his armor from now until entropy set in before she’d ever penetrate. They didn’t call him Ironhide for nothing.

The old warrior waded in again, swinging a massive roundhouse at Hellion, but her superior speed combined with the drag of the water on Ironhide’s blocky form allowed her to duck under the blow. She launched herself upwards driving her fists into Ironhide’s middle, but once again his armor held, though the force of the blow lifted him from the ground.

As he descended, he drove an elbow into the back of the femme’s head, but she seemed little worse for the wear from the powerful blow, accepting the hit and spinning round slashing at Ironhide with the razor-like edges of her wings. The old ‘bot got his guard up just in time, blocking the edge with his fore-arm and suffering no more damage than some chipped paint.

Despite the situation, Ironhide was actually enjoying the fight. The femme was durable enough to give him a good tussle – it reminded him of sparring sessions with Chromia long ago back on Cybertron. He fully expected the fight to last a while and was just warming up to it when an internal alert flashed in front of his optics.

<<Warning: Seal compromised. Leak eminent.>>

As he continued to trade blows with Hellion, the old mech ran a quick diagnostic. The damaged seal was in his neck. It was the cybertronian equivalent of a rubber gasket, and had likely torn in the first seconds of the battle when Hellion had snapped his head around. In a normal environment, it wouldn’t have mattered at all, but in this watery hell, a minor failure like this one would lead to salt-water invading his circuits and probably major systems failure. That all meant one thing – he had to end the fight quickly.

“Yer real good girlie," Ironhide said, catching one of Hellion’s arms with his right hand as he retracted his left, bringing his famous watergun to bear. “Thing is ah fight dirty," he added as shoved his left arm forward, holding the barrel of the chemical-inducer only centimeters from her face, and firing a stream of molten lead.

OOC - the exchange between Ironhide and Hellion was agreed upon by Devastron and I.

Weapon: Energo-Sword
Inside Autobot Freighter

Frenzy laughed as Brawn began charging at him. “Stupid slaggin’ Autobot, guess you feel like getting deactivated today huh?" The cassetticon focused his sonic attack on the approaching Autobot. The virbrations intensified, the decibels reaching the hundreds in volume. It was likely more then enough to blow out a Transformer’s audio receptors, let alone cause plenty of physical damage. The effect would only intensify the closer Brawn got.

*

Ravage clawed and bit Smokescreen, attempting to inflict as much damage as he could on the Autobot even while still somewhat blinded from Smokescreen’s headlights being flashed at him. Being smaller and possessing only four legs somewhat limited his fighting ability, but he more then made up for that with ferocity, speed and skill. He was making some progress against Smokescreen when the Autobot attempted to slam him up against the wall. The cassetticon attempt to scramble out of the way but his he was slow to see the attack coming due to his still dazzled vision. He took a bit of a blow as his rear legs were sandwiched between the Autobot and the wall.

The cassetticon quickly slipped loose, his rear legs dented up a bit, slightly limiting his mobility. It didn’t slow down his attack however. With a snarl and growl he leapt at Smokescreen again, this time at his front side, aiming to wrap his jaws around the Autobot’s neck.

*

Soundwave wasn’t happy at the progress Ravage and Frenzy were making. They had apparently underestimated the Autobots pitted against them. It wasn’t impossible that Ravage had not detected all of the Autobots. The communications expert did no there was at least one other group of Autobots on board the vessel, it could be possible that they had somehow gotten around them. While Starscream seemed unconcerned about this other group of Autobots they remained in the forefront of his mind.

The Decepticon looked down at Rumble who was impatiently waiting to join in the battle. He gestured down the hall towards the battle. Rumble smirked and grabbed his twin lasers. He charged down the hall blazing away, but careful to avoid shooting Frenzy.

As Rumble charged off to join the fray against the Autobots Soundwave detected something coming behind him. His auditory sensors picked up faint footsteps after he filtered out the residual sound of Frenzy’s attack. Hefting his concussion blaster he opened fire at the corner Jazz was hiding behind. “Autobot!"

*

Ocean Floor - Near the Crash Site

Hellion relished her battle with Ironhide, the fuellust inside of her boiling out. Back and forth the two warriors went exchanging blows. It seemed as if this time the Autobot would live up to his name as attacks that would have cut down most other Autobots only nicked and scratched his tough armor.

Her own armor was holding up well enough, if not quite as well as the Autobots. She was collecting her fair share of dents, dings and scratches. There were even a few cracks here and there, but the extra water sealant patches kept any water from seeping into her internal systems. Not that she really noticed any of the damage she was taking. She was in battle, and all that mattered was victory.

Ironhide said something to her, she couldn’t really hear anything aside from her own fuel pump beating loud and fast. Then she was looking down the barrel of a gun, and then it fired. The molten lead slammed against her face, scorching and melting it even as it rapidly cooled. Her optics cracked and her vision went dark as they were covered in the lead. She screamed and clawed at her face as she lashed out randomly, attempting to take some sort of vengeance on her attacker who was now completely unseen.

Shotblur sat tight, even despite his superior's orders. While his firepower was needed, experience dictated he needed to wait. He opened a com-link to Ironhide and offered a response after some time passed.

>>Acknowledged, Ironhide. Sorry for the delay in response--picking targets is difficult. I will be in the fray in just a moment.<<

Quickly, he scanned the battlefield for eligible targets to disguise as. Time was of the essence, but he needed to get a good look at his mark before he attempted to impersonate them. His bright red optics flipped between multiple Decepticons as he processed what was going on around him.

'Strike watched as Skywarp stepped on his arm. He was losing a lot of internal fluid very fast, he needed to do something before entering stasis lock. He shot at the Seeker with his scatter blaster, and before the explosive buckshots could hit their target, 'Strike shot his last missile up, just in case Skywarp decided to give him a little surprise. With that done, 'Strike entered stasis lock.

Inside the Crashed Freighter

Starscream watched as Frenzy entered the corridor and opened up with his sonic attack. At first he had expected the move to take the Autobots unawares and render them unable to move, he was surprised when Brawn suddenly Transformed and charged down the hall. The fight wasn't going the way he had anticipated, however his team had now managed to dig their opponents out of their hiding places. The Air Commander dove out into the hall and raised his arm mounted rail guns, taking carefully aim to avoid any friendly fire he opened up straight into Brawn's grill, dishing out a withering stream of armour piercing projectiles. Once he was done firing he ducked back into cover and turned to Soundwave

"We have the Autobots out of their cover, now is our chance to move. We need to secure that bounce platform and disable it, that way the Autobots won't be able to move any more energon out that way, and since we control this portion of the ship they can't use the entrance we breached earlier."

Starscream glanced down the hall again and snapped off a few more shots to keep Brawn's head down in case the Seekers earlier barrage hadn't pinned him down all ready.

"We are going to push up the hall and neutralize these two Autobots. After that We will move to engage the remaining 'Bots already on board. Once we have found the energon supply we will need to work quickly and place the demolition charges and evacuate. I don't want to give the Autobots any time to disarm them." Starscream peeked around the corner one last time then looked back at Soundwave. "On my signal move up the hall."

Once again the Air Commander dove into the hall, his weapons raised once more. He swept the entire passage with a heavy stream of rail gun fire, not aiming at any target in particular rather trying to keep any Autobots there pinned down. He then turned to Soundwave and gestured for him to follow. A second later Starscream got up and made a dash for the bounce room.

Inside Autobot Freighter – Orbital Bounce Chamber

As Smokescreen slammed his back against the wall, he could feel Ravage’s hind legs become sandwiched under his weight before the cassetticon managed to squirm his way loose. “You’re a slippery little slagger, aren’t you?" Smokey taunted his four-legged foe, now noticing that Brawn was no longer in the room. I hope he’s using those net casters like I told him and not trying anything rash, the diversion expert worried as he quickly readied his shoulder-mounted launchers that were equipped with net casters, as well.

Smokescreen kept his optics focused on Ravage as the Decepticon feline prepared for another attack. Even with damaged legs, Ravage was still very dangerous and not to be underestimated. When the four-legged cassetticon made his move, Smokey was ready and instantly fired a net directly at the leaping Ravage, hoping to ensnare him and thus remove him from the fight.

Ocean Floor – Near the Crash Site

Once the dust had settled some more, Skywarp could see Blackstrike lying helpless on the seabed. However, the Autobot flyer was not out of commission just yet and fired several shots from his scatter blaster directly at the teleporter. ‘Warp managed to avoid the first two shots, but the last one struck his right wing, causing some moderate damage. Luckily for him, though, his flying skills weren’t needed on this particular mission.

“You stupid Autobot! Don’t you know when you’re beaten?!" Skywarp shouted as he brought his rail guns to bare just in time to see a missile get fired off. It came nowhere near the black and purple seeker, but it still angered him that this pathetic excuse for a flyer was still trying to fight back in his condition. As ‘Warp approached, however, he noticed that Blackstrike had finally fallen into stasis lock and was no longer a threat. “Well, it’s about fraggin’ time!"

Skywarp lowered his weapons as he then received Krunix’s communiqué regarding the holograms. ‘Warp immediately looked back at Thundercracker. “Hey, ‘Cracker! Those holograms are probably coming from Hound. Let’s go find him and..." Before 'Warp could finish his sentence, both seekers found themselves under fire from the newly arrived Blaster and Eject. "I'll take care of these two, 'Cracker. You go find Hound!"

Skywarp then quickly vanished from sight and reappeared off to the side of the rock that Blaster and Eject were using as cover. "Surprise! Time to silence the Voice permanently!" The teleporter growled as he opened fire on the two Autobots with his rail guns.

Blitzwing merely gave retreating Ramjet an angry glare before getting up. The triplechanger was not particularly excited to be a target of such jokes despite gladly serving similar comments to others. Then again, hardly any bully liked to taste of their own venom. If he wasn't in a foul mood already due to being hit by Ironhide's blasts, he was now. Ramjet would pay sooner or later. As would Ironhide. Had he not noticed a bounce beam flash and Blaster announcing his appearance, attacking Ironhide would have been his next course of action. However, now he had to deal with Ramhorn who was charging towards him with comically slow pace due to the water.

"Sheesh... that's what you throw at me?! Come on Ramhorn! Even Sludge is faster than you!" Blitzwing mocked and transformed into his tank mode. He had plenty of time to take an aim though his vision was still bit shaken and take one shot towards the charging rhino before turning back to robot mode and prepare to dodge the charge if the explosive round would not be enough to stop Ramhorn. The small Autobot was notoriously stubborn and resistant to artillery fire so while he would not escape one of Blitzwing's shots unscathed, he was going to continue coming at the commando through sheer willpower. And even Blitzwing was not particularly interested testing his armor against the Autobot's horn.

For a moment it appeared like the Decepticons had gotten an advantage over the battlefield which gave Thundercracker time to observe his surroundings relatively peacefully. That was until Blaster bounced in and began directing his minions at the Decepticons. Blaster's sudden appearance was Thundercracker's cue to search for cover. He did not want to have anything to do with the Autobot's electro-scrambler gun. Being hit by very similar weapon by Smokescreen during his last combat mission was enough for him.

He had seen Hound approaching Hardhead's position earlier and when Skywarp teleported away and grabbed Blaster's and Eject's attention, Thundercracker dashed out of his cover began to move towards Hound's position to achieve proper firing angle. Which was something he did not have to search for long. Achieving a direct line of shot, Thundercracker let his railguns to speak for himself.

Ocean Floor - Near Crash Site

Head under one arm, the end of Hardheads leg under the other, Hound drags the still form of the cantakerous warrior towards his allies. Can't let him lie there, he'll be left behind! Gotta get him to a safe bounce location, get him out of here, before... Hound suddenly realised it was 'after', the dust cloud which had hidden him has dissipated, as Ramjet and Blitzwing had moved on. Now, the Autobot scout was horribly exposed...

The railgun shot took him in the torso. Yelling as his support frame bend under the blow, Hound toppled over, dropping Hardheads head. Thankfully, the water and the sand cushioned the fall for both, and Hound recovered immediately.

Gotta give myself a nano to recover... Hologram generator reactivating, suddenly the area around the scout and the fallen warrior was a forest of 10-meter tall kelp. It wasn't designed to fool, only to obscure. Rolling away from any more incoming shots from Thundercracker, Hound temporarily abandoned Hardhead in order to find a better position, and some allies. He heads towards the cruiser, and sees what look like two...animals, just entering the new virtual forest. Hopefully, with a little backup, he could force the seeker off like Ramjet had been.

At the coral reef


Rewind remembered something. Actually the archivist remembered everything, which was usually the problem, but for once he remembered something that was actually useful and pertinent to the situation they were in. At the battle of Omnicron Ceti 5, 273 vorns ago, Blitzwing had been neutralized by the flash of a magnesium explosion. Essentially, Blitzwing’s eyes were particularly sensitive to bright light, and bright light just happened to be one of the cassetobot’s specialties.

So, despite orders to the contrary, Rewind veered off from his mission to retrieve Hardhead, seizing on the rare opportunity for the librarian to take out what was likely the biggest threat on the battlefield. As the triple-changer’s artillery blast slowed Ramhorn’s charge and the rhino emerged smoking and charred from the other side, Rewind crossed into Blitzwing’s field of vision and discharged a blinding flare from his light matrix. Given the commando’s known vulnerability to such attacks, it was very likely that Blitzwing would be rendered completely blind.

***

Blitzwing’s taunts did little but further anger Ramhorn as he charged the commando. The cassetobot knew he wasn’t at his best here, but then again neither was anyone else, and yeah, it would probably take him a few steps to get up to full speed, but even here that was nearly 40 mph. Ramhorn knew his charge would be devastating, and relished the thought of getting to rip a chunk out of Blitzwing’s armored hide.

No, the taunts didn’t slow him, but the artillery shell did. The explosive shell burst around him, tearing up the ground and, even in this watery environment, causing his armor to smoke, but the explosives weren’t armor-piercing, and he was specifically designed to handle this kind of attack. The real problem was that the ground had been turned into a crater and his charge was broken.

Ramhorn pawed the ground in disgust and lowered his head for another charge when an incredibly bright flash of light went off behind him. Even though he wasn’t the quickest on the uptake, it didn’t take him long to realize Rewind was helping him out – it was a good thing the damned little librarian hadn’t gotten in his way, but Ramhorn could accept help that came in the form of a flash of light that would distract his opponent and give him a chance to rend the ‘con with his horn.

“You’ve had in now slaghead!" Ramhorn roared and charged once more, headed for a, hopefully, blinded Blitzwing.


Illusory Kelp Forest


Hound’s illusory forest would have probably stopped most ‘bots in their tracks. Despite knowing that it was probably Hound who had created it, they’d have been unable to find the little scout amidst all the kelp. Steeljaw, however, wasn’t most ‘bots. The tracker had no trouble discerning a path to Hound - he just followed his nose, and reached him in mere moments.

"Hound, it’s good to see you old friend," Steeljaw said, emerging from the shadows and loping to the scout’s side. He wasted no further time on pleasantries, getting right down to business instead. “I see you’re wounded, but perhaps if you’d extend this illusion a bit further, then I can probably get the drop on Thundercracker, and between the two of us we might be able to drive him off."


Ocean Floor - Near the Crash Site


Eject tried to dive clear as Skywarp teleported in and began spraying the area with projectiles, but wasn’t quite able to avoid them all. A shell tore through the armor on his calf, causing him to stumble as he rolled back to his feet and returned fire.

“Hey no fair calling a trick play like that," he yelled as he focused his overload gun on the Seeker. The weapon wasn’t the most powerful in the world, it didn’t even do any permanent damage, but it ignored most armor, delivering a powerful stun charge to the targets’ electrical system.

***

As Eject dove one way to avoid Skywarp’s surprise attack, Blaster dove the other. Being much larger, the communications specialist took several hits to his symbiont’s one, but besides being bigger, Blaster was considerably tougher, and his armor held - for now anyway. He’d never stand a sustained barrage from the Seeker’s weaponry, but the few shots that winged him were easily turned aside.

Blaster rolled back to his feet separated from Eject by a good 60 degrees. He pivoted on his heels and charged Skywarp just as the cassetobot opened fire. With the angles being what they were, he left Eject plenty of room to shoot without risk of hitting him, at least until he closed and got a grip on Skywarp. His goal was to grapple with the seeker, since he knew that was the only way to negate the teleporter’s advantage.

“Warpy old buddy, you’ll have to do waaayyy better than that if you want to shut this Autobot up!" he proclaimed as he rushed Skywarp.

Corridor

As the beatting of Frenzy's drums intensified, Brawn felt his entire frame reeling form the pain of the beatting drum. Worse, he detected no further sound, indicating his audo receptors had shorted out. He then felt somethign hit his front hood and incapacitate his engines. he looked down the hall and saw Starscream and Rumble coming down the hall. Indeed, the odds were greatly against him, especially with Starscream coming. Still, as Brawn transformed back into robot mode, he thought to himself. If he retreated now, he would only delay them losing. It was on him to hold the line. Normally, he'd fall back. No! Not this time. Prime wasn't there. Nor Perceptor or Prowl to restrain him. He needed to go all out. If he was going down, it would be in a fight. He felt Bumblebee would enjoy that story. If he was going into stasis lock, he was at least taking Starscream with him. He tensed himself as his exterior slowly began to show signs of wear form Frenzy's drums. Worse, his head narrowly avoided a direct hit from an armor piercing round, hitting the panneling of his body just beind his head.

"Urgh" he moaned, reeling from the pain. "No... way... am I...running from from this spaz!" he growled as he got up. He raised his arms, doing his best to ignore the pain, and lunged at Frenzy, looking to grab the cassette. He knew Frenzy was going to have to stop if he wanted to try and get away. Even better for Brawn, he'd make the Decepticons get a taste of their own medicine, wih Starscream closing in, he felt it necessary to use this little guy in some way. The time for traps had passed. It was time for his fists to do the work.

As he made his attack, he detected an incomming transmission from the Ark-19, form the Auotbot Lore-Lock he had no time for this. He simply opened up a reponse transmission to the Autobot. >>"Then get down here if you're gonna fight!"<<

Corridors Perpendicular to Bounce Pad

Jazz managed to overhear bits of Starscream's plans. Indeed, the Decepticon aerial commander was living up to his reputation of having a big mouth. Though he couldn't make out everything the seeker commander was babbling about, he was able to use certain keywords to peice together enough of Starscream's plan. It wasn't good.

It was then that Soundwave noticed his presence and Starscream and Rumble made their way down the corridor towards the Bounce Platform. Soundwave had opened fire. Jazz took a moment to allow the inital blasts to hit the wall before emerging and returning fire. Jazz had to wonder, "How does he do that?"

"Might wanna mute his mic Soundwave." he yelled in a suggestive manner to Soundwave as he attacked. "His yappin's gonna cause ya a messa trouble once you get back to ol'Megatron."

Still, Jazz felt it necessary to warn Prowl. If they failed. Prowl was going to need an escape plan.

>>"Jazz to Prowl. Might wanna rev up your caboose. Those Decepti-creeps sure are lookin' to make a gilatinous hole down here."<<

Storage Bay

Prowl recieved Jazz's warning. If things weren't looking so good, then it would be necessary to get away with what he could. He needed another way out with minimal resistance, but first, he needed an update in order to proceed.

He activated a comm to Ironhide. >>Prowl to Ironhide. What's your status?"<<

While he waited, he loaded more energon onto the cart.

Lore-lock had just finished putting up the most recent energon shipment when Brawn snapped back, >>"Then get down here if you're gonna fight!"<<

He wasted no time, setting a nano countdown on the transmitter he stepped on to the bounce pad and was on his way.

Shuttle Bounce Pad

Lore-lock landed in a absolute war zone. He could hear the chatter of weapons fire. Moreover he could see Smokescreen had been gnawed on by Ravage. He also heard Starscream rambling on about something. Above all of this Lore-lock heard an incessant pounding, "Frenzy must be near, nothing makes more noise than that little slag pile" the grey bot thought. With his weapon at the ready he made his way into the fray.

Weapon: Energo-Sword
Inside Autobot Freighter – Orbital Bounce Chamber

Ravage snarled and lashed out with his claws as the net ensnared him. He growled in anger and frustration as he hit the ground entangled in the netting. He slashed and bit at it, trying to break out but having little success. It was another instance were his quadruped form was a distinct disadvantage.

The cassetticon was not ready to admit defeat. He was a true believer in the Decepticon cause, and to admit defeat like this just wasn’t in his nature. The mission would be completed whether he was in a net or not.

There was a mechanical click followed by a series of beeps coming from the twin bombs the saboteur always carried with him. His optics flashed as he looked up at Smokescreen. “You haven’t won Autobot. These bombs would be enough to destroy this ship even if it was empty. With all of the energon loaded on it…." The cassetticon bared his fangs at him. “I would start running if I were you Autobot."

*

Corridor

Frenzy frowned as Brawn continued to march towards him. He focused his attack even more on the minibot, but he was a tough one. Frenzy kept pouring it on until Brawn slammed into him, tackling him to the ground. The cassetticon let out a loud grunt as he hit the ground, his attack abruptly cutting off.

“Hey! Get off a him you slaghead!" Rumble jumped on Brawn’s back and began punching and shooting the Autobot as best he could.

While the others had charged ahead Soundwave had stayed behind to continue exchanging fire with Jazz. He had no desire for the Autobot to gun them down while they were charging after Smokescreen and Brawn. The fact that he had gotten so close to them already was distressing. He had obviously gone radio silent to get this close to him. Only the fact that he knew there were other Autobots on board from earlier signals had kept him on alert listening for their approach.

He ducked away from some incoming fire from Jazz as he received a signal from Ravage. It seemed that the cassetticon had taken care of things himself. Hopefully Starscream would not be too annoyed at his thunder being stolen by Ravage. Of course he would likely take all of the credit for it either way. Now wasn’t a good time to be dwelling on such thoughts though. The bombs were activated and counting down to detonation. They would need to be some distance away to avoid damage.

The communications expert unleashed a volley of mini-rockets at Jazz before he jogged back to Starscream. “Ravage has deployed bombs. Recommend regrouping and evacuating immediately. Detonation will be considerable and adequate and destroying this vessel."

Corridor

Brawn had managed to grab Frenzy, taking a hold of him by the neck and getting one good punch in before he felt something hop on his back. While he couldn't hear, it didn't take much to tell form the punches alone it was Rumble. As Rumble managed to get those punches in, Brawn grunted as he stood still holding Frenzy by the neck. The damage Rumble was doing was not substancial. Brawn had heard that despite Rumble's tough attitude, he was easy to push around when it came ot bigger robots. He had no time to deal with these two. He tried reaching for Rumble as the little bully took blasted him with his laser cannon. His systems warned him of the damage sustained to his armor from the rear, but Brawn had to keep going. He'd worry about his state of functionality after the fight.

Brawn determined that grabbing Rumble wouldn't be possible as he spun around, trying to force the little guy off. But he recalled something about momentum that Perceptor once babbled about. He had Frenzy in one hand, Rumble beatting away at his back. Two birds, one stone and he knew Rumble didn't have a good grip on him. Though Ruble was as tough as he came, he knew that if Rumble could endure what he was about to do, Frenzy probably wouldn't be as lucky. He lept up into the air, feeling gravity take him down while the momentum would send the lighter Rumble sailing up a little further. As soon as he landed, he flung Frenzy in the air and grabbed him by the arm while making a swinging motion in Rumble's direction.

"Batter-up shorty!" Brawn muttered to Rumble, as he swung Frenzy like a baseball bat, hoping to connect and send Rumble flying.

Corridor perpedicular to Bounce Pad

Jazz dove for cover as Soundwave's rockets came at him, hitting the wall behind him. Clearly this was a delay tactic as Soundwave made his way down the corridor. Jazz got up and made his pursuit, hearing Soundwave say something to Starscream about bombs. It couldn't have been one of the other cassettes. He would have encountered them already. He detected Brawn and Smokescreen nearby. Then he noted some activity coming from the Bounce pad. There was no time to inquire. If Starscream and Soundwave wanted out, they were going to have to earn it.

He turned the corner, he activated a net caster, readying two of the smaller. He targeted the first one at Soundwave and fired it. It sailed through the air, unwrapping as it headed for it's target. Jazz knew it would not hold long, but it could certainly slow Soundwave down, perhaps even forcing the two into a panic situation if there were bombs on the ship. He then targeted further down the hall, at Starscream and fired a second, hoping this could give Brawn a few more seconds to take out the twins and take it to Starscream.

He noticed Brawn behind them, taking a punishment as usual, but seemingly holding his own. He figured Brawn knew doing what he was doing was going to earn him a trip to the CR chmaber, though part of him wondered if Brawn might actually wake up in a good mood. Brawn was on a mission to avenge Bumblebee, and so far, he was doing quite a job.

Bridge

At the bridge, the glass to the bridge window began to crack further under the stress of water pressure.

In the Shadow of the Freighter

Ironhide stepped back as Hellion flailed blindly around and leapt upwards onto the top of the shuttle, well clear of the femme’s tortured shrieks and wild swings. The old ‘bot almost felt guilty about the way he’d taken her down… almost.

Ironhide used his new perch to survey the battlefield. He had at most a quarter-vorn before he had to be out of the water or risk systems failure, so he needed to make some quick decisions. It appeared their unexpected reinforcements, Blaster and his crew, had turned the tide of the battle, and they and Hound had the remaining ‘cons tied down. Of Shotblur there was still no sign.

“If that lil’ slagger ain’t in stasis lock when we get back to the Ark, ah swear ah’ll put him there myself," the old mech muttered, still amazed at the newcomers utter uselessness in the battle. Ironhide was still trying to decide if he should head for the surface or just head inside the freighter to get out of the water when Prowl’s communiqué came through.

<<Ah’m about ready to pull us outta here Prowl,>> Ironhide replied. <<If you guys have the energon anyway, if not ah’ll head inside to help yuh out.>> Just as he clicked the channel closed to await Prowl’s reply, his security sensors went crazy.

Ironhide had an advanced sensor suite that was specifically designed to detect weapons and enemy personnel at range. It was essential for a security ‘bot, and had been detecting the presence of explosives inside the shuttle for a while now. That was to be expected since his guys were rigging the thing to blow, but what had set his sensors to jangling was that now some of the explosives were hot – on a countdown, and they were big – proton bombs with at least a 1 megaton yield!

<<Prowl! Belay that last order! Get yer guys clear now! You got active explosives on board that thing and they’re countin’ down to a big boom!>> He transmitted desperately, then switched over to the main command channel and sent a similar warning:

<<Autobots disengage and get clear, this whole area’s gonna go up!>>

Inside the crashed Freighter

Starscream looked over at Soundwave once he had announced that Ravage had already deployed bombs. For a brief moment he was irritated that the other Decepticon had gone a head with his own plan, however it was irrelevant given that it accomplished their goals faster. Also considering the Autobot resistance they had encountered it was likely the best option.

"Very good Soundwave, it seems I have underestimated your ingenuity. No matter, we have accomplished our goal here, the Autobots will not have enough time to capture the remaining energon, not with out sacrificing their own lives. Sound the withdrawal."

Starscream raised his weapons and began laying down heavy covering fire, allowing for Soundwave and his minions to begin falling back. He then keyed in his com link to the others fighting outside.

>>Decepticons, Soundwave has set the charges to blow the freighter. Time is short, begin fall back immediately. Engage Autobots only as necessary, but our window to escape the blast radius is very narrow. Now move!<<

He cut the com line and began falling back, firing to hold the Autobots back.

Autobot Freighter between Orbital Bounce Chamber and Corridor

Lore-lock heard the clicks and beeps coming from just behind him. Then he heard Ravage, “I would start running if I were you Autobot." So the bot stuck his head round the corner and relayed the message to Brawn. Which allowed him to see the older mech take a swing at a cassetticon with another. "Nice Swing, now let's get some place safe. I'm not planning on joining the All Spark any time soon" Lore-lock also managed to get off a pop-shot at Starscream, just before Ironhide called for a total withdraw. He then went back into the bounce chamber proper.

Bounce Chamber

Lore-lock saw the bombs under Ravage and did some quick calculations. "Smokey, give me a hand with these, I wanna try and bounce the bombs to the far side of the moon."

Inside Autobot Freighter - Bounce Chamber

Smokescreen smiled when he saw his net ensnare Ravage as he had hoped it would. However, that smile quickly turned into a look of dread when he heard a click and several beeps from the two bombs that Ravage had just activated. Smokey backed away slightly at the sight of the powerful explosives as Lore-lock approached him and suggested bouncing the bombs into space. “Not a bad idea, Lore-lock. But, before we go sticking our hands near Ravage’s razor-sharp fangs, let me set the new destination into the bounce pad computer and make sure we still have enough auxiliary power left," Smokey suggested, moving over to the control console.

Smokescreen attempted to enter in the coordinates when the console suddenly went dark. “What the..." The diversion expert muttered as he tried to bring anything up on the blackened display screen. “The controls are dead. We’ve lost power." Smokey quickly removed the access panel at the console's base and was met with a series of sparks. “Slaggit! We’ve got a burn out! It could’ve been from Frenzy’s sonic waves earlier or just an overload in the wiring from overuse. It wasn’t in the best of shape to begin with. Either way, I can’t fix it, not before those bombs go off anyway." Smokey stood up and looked over at Lore-lock. “Sorry, but the bounce pad’s useless now. We need to withdraw like Ironhide ordered."

Corridor

Smokescreen went for the door and exited into the corridor where he was met with suppressive fire from Starscream. Keeping his head low, Smokey fired off a few shots at the retreating Seeker Commander, hoping he might hit him but not really expecting to. The diversion specialist then looked over at Brawn who was still toying with Rumble and Frenzy. “Come on, Brawn, quick playing with those two cassetticons! The ship’s gonna blow!"

Smokescreen then transformed and quickly sped down the hallway towards the storage room, avoiding laser blasts as he went. Once there, Smokey returned to robot mode and ducked inside where Prowl was still trying to gather as much energon as possible. "Prowl, we’ve got no more time! The bounce pad’s fried and is no good to us. We need to get out of here now!"

Ocean Floor – Crash Site

Skywarp watched as several of his rail gun rounds hit Blaster while only one managed to strike Eject, who was much smaller in size than the Autobot communications officer. Quickly, the cassettibot opened fire with his tiny weapons, hitting ‘Warp several times in the chest plate. “Puny Autobot! Your firepower is no match for me!"

Just as the distracted Skywarp was about to return fire, he noticed out of the corner of his optic that Blaster had made a much bolder move and was charging directly at him! The teleporter smiled as he disappeared from sight and immediately reappeared behind the charging Autobot. “Nice try, big mouth! You’ll have to be faster than that!" Skywarp raised his weapons but paused briefly when he received Starscream’s transmission to withdraw. Naturally! Just when I was beginning to have fun, ‘Warp thought as he returned his glare back to his target.

“Sorry Blaster! We’ll have to pick this up another time!" Skywarp shouted as he fired off a torpedo right at the Autobot’s back. 'Warp then headed as far away from the crash site as he could, not waiting to see if he hit Blaster or not. If the torpedo didn't take care of the famed "Voice", the inevitable blast wave from the exploding freighter surely would.

At the coral reef

Blitzwing grinned triumphantly as Ramhorn's charge was stopped short. It was especially pleasing to him as the Autobot had now even more difficult time in getting his speed up to point where his charge would be dangerous. Soon he'd get to sink his scimitar into the Autobot minicon and stop another Autobot for good during this confrontation. At least that was the plan. Until Rewind's flare took out his vision.

"Slaggin' Autotwerps! I'll rip out your optics for this!" He roared and did what most flying Decepticons would have done in a similar situation. He activated his anti-gravity thrusters and shot up towards the surface. He knew it was going to make him an easy target for a short while but considering the minicons attacking him had feeble firepower as it was, their attacks had minor chances of hurting him while he'd get out of their range to wait for his vision to return.

Of course, Starscream's message changed that plan as well. The ship below had been trigged to explode, it was time to leave the battlefield. "Another time Autobots!"
_____________________________________________

Meanwhile Thundercracker had kept firing at Hound's position. The illusion of kelp forest did make it more difficult to target the Autobot but he had his approximately position covered and by the looks of it his firepower was keeping Hound pinned down. However, there was no resolution to the situation as Starscream's orders came through.

Thundercracker had no intention of staying there to see the ship explode and thus he began to fall back as ordered. But not before firing a torpedo into the kelp forest where he had seen movement for the last time.

Lore-lock nodded to Smokescreen as the diversion master reminded him of the robo pup's teeth. When the Bounce controls fried out Lore-lock's hope of saving the energon went with the functionality of the equipment. Not wanting to end up like those very same controls he sticks to Smokescreen's exhaust ports. They grey scout may not be good at diversions, but he could do what he could to help get the crew out, as smoothly as possible.

Corridor
I just hope we can save more of that precious energon He thought as he tried not to get hit by Starscream's wall of fire. When he got to Prowl, Lore-lock also transformed, but with his axe out. "I brought my can opener." He calmly tries to joke, but ready to swing at the bulk head to open a way out if need be.

Corridor

Rumble was seen hurtling off of Brawn’s back as the Autobot shook him off. He used his flight abilities to help stabilize himself, keeping him from slamming into the wall too hard. He had to quickly scramble out of the way as Brawn tried to clobber him with Frenzy. “Watch it ya big slaghead!"

Soundwave was a bit surprised at Starscream’s praise, particularly how he announced it to the other Decepticons. He didn’t have time to dwell on it though as the seeker began signaling a general withdraw from the battle. He was all in favor of leaving the Autobot laden craft, but first he had to retrieve his minions who all seemed to be having a rough time of things.

While Starscream provided covering fire Soundwave charged forward down the corridor. He spotted Brawn swinging Frenzy like a club. His visor flashed red before he took aim and fired his concussion gun at Brawn’s hand, causing him to release the cassetticon. He followed it up with a barrage of mini-rockets aimed at the minibot.

With Brawn occupied and Rumble moving to scoop up Frenzy it was time to rescue Ravage. Soundwave’s chest dropped open as another cassetticon launched out. “Laserbeak: Eject. Operation: Rescue."

Laserbeak streaked down the corridor, swooping down at Ravage. The Decepticon’s talons latched on to the net entangling Ravage. Thrusters kicked it and Laserbeak pulled up. Between his efforts and Ravage’s continued slashing at the net the cassetticon was able to get free. Leaving his bombs behind he dashed back down the corridor, followed by Laserbeak. Both of them transformed and slid back into Soundwave’s chest.

Soundwave turned and ran back towards Starscream, Rumble following behind with the stasis locked Frenzy. Soundwave added his fire to that of the Seeker’s in an effort to drive Jazz back so they could exit the doomed ship.

In the Shadow of the Freighter

Hellion continued to roar and yell in anger and frustration as she clawed at her lead covered face. Bits of the metal and possibly her face fell away as she tried to get her damaged optics clear with only some success. She could finally make out some fractured, blurry images through her cracked optics. Unfortunately Ironhide was not in her limited line of sight.

She then received the signal to withdraw from Starscream. She roared in frustration at being denied any sort of vengeance against the Autobot. Not knowing where they were retreating to the seeker simply went up. At the very least that was one direction that would take her away from the doomed vessel.

Corridor

Brawn felt something his his arm, causing a forced reaction to let Frenzy go. He turned to see it was Soundwave, coming to the aid of his minions as he fired several concussion rockets at him. Brawn ducked, but this was clearly Soudnwaves intended goal. The rockets passed ove rhim, hitting the wall and exploding right behind him.

After a moment, he got up but even Laserbeak was not flying over him, with Ravage. Something was up. Briefy checing his arm's funcitonality, he noticed it was showing only minimal movement. He'd have torget it repaired once he got back. He then saw Smokescreen coming to him, saying something. Brawn could not tell what it was being said since Frenzy had incapacitated his audio receptors.

"What?" was his only reply. But he knew something was up. Only moments later did he recieve Ironhide's comm to evacuate. How did they get bombs off? No... that wasn't important. Getting out was priority.

Jazz, meanwhile, ducked back as he was met with covefire, taking a grazing to the front hood. It was time to escape, just as the Decepticons were doing. he ehaded for the Sotrage bay.

Brawn, menahwile, followed Smokescreen.

Storage

As the tohers arrived, Prowl nodded at Smokescreen's report.

"I recieved it as well." Prowl responded. "Everyone, get ready to swim, we're oging to use the storage bay doors to make our exit. We'll set one charge and blow it. We'll then swim to the surface as fast as we can. Hopefully, the shock of the blast will propell us further upwards."

"Sounds like a plan." Jazz said. "Just gotta keep in mind I set a few already."

"That will be fine Jazz." Prowl replied. "Somkescreen, you and Lore-lock quickly find something to keep this energon from floating out of this crate. We have to hope this thing will have enough bouyancy to float to the top. We'll detonate once everything is good. You have 1 minute!"

With that, Jazz ran over to the door and placed a charge. If all went well, the water woudl quickly flood the room and they could swim out.

"All set!" Jazz said as he ran back towards the group.

Bridge

The forward glass began to crack further under the force of the water pressue. And then.. it gave.

Form the outside, the massive pressure squeezed the forward hull, cushing it like an alluminum can, causing the ship to tilt forward.

Illusory Kelp Forest

"Steeljaw!!" Hound crawls towards the leonine Autobot, keeping low to avoid Thundercrackers fire. "Of all the 'Bots I thought I'd be talking to today, you were way down on the list!! Listen, we gotta..." Hound trailed off as the two of them recieved Ironhides message.

"Oh slag!!! Steeljaw, I need help moving Hardhead clear!! Grab his head and get going, maybe fire something to keep Thundercracker off our-!!" Hound was cut short by said Seekers final shot, as the torpedo lands a little behind the scouts, throwing up a massive cloud of sand!!

"AAaggh!!! No!! Hardhead...I can't see where the head got to!! I think it was knocked clear!!" Hound desperately starts deploying sensors to find it, mindful that the freighter could go up at any minute...

Storage Bay

Smokescreen felt a sense of relief once Brawn, Lore-lock and Jazz had all made it into the storage bay without getting slagged by the Decepticons. As the door to the hallway shut behind them, Smokey quickly activated the locking mechanism just in case the 'cons tried to follow. He then turned back towards the others. "I'm glad to see you guys are okay," the red and blue mech said to his teammates before listening to Prowl's plan of escape. There was also the issue of getting the crate of energon out of the ship safely without the cubes floating away once the water gushed into the freighter.

"No problem, Prowl. I'm on it!" Smokescreen responded as he quickly scanned the bay for what he needed. He soon found a lid that appeared to be the correct size and brought it over to the crate. The diversion expert then placed the metal cover on top and pressed down hard around the edges until it clicked into place. The accompanying hissing sound indicated that the container full of energon was now sealed and ready to go. "The energon's good to go, Prowl!"

Just then, Smokescreen felt a sudden shudder as the ship tilted forward, causing the energon crate to begin sliding across the bay. Smokey quickly grabbed the container with both hands and tried to hold on with all of his strength, but he was slowly starting to slide along with it. "Brawn, anyone, help me with this! The energon's not exactly lightweight!" The diversion expert singled out Brawn because he knew the minibot was the strongest mech in the room. However, help from anyone would do just fine at this point.
