"There is a glimmer of truth in most myths Mindwipe. How warped and twisted the truth becomes over time is another thing." Scorponok spoke up while observing the various screens of the Command Bridge, including those Mindwipe had presented to him. "Take the legendary leader of Omega Sentinels for example. Omega Supreme was once believed to be a mere myth until he was found again by the Autobots and convinced to join their cause."
"And how many other myths have become reality?" The massive Decepticon warlord continued, "The Acropolex of Nyon and the Trypticon Station - both relics of the forgotten ages and ultimately proven to be something far more than any of the stories indicated. One can only imagine what is hidden behind the concepts of the Thirteen, the Guiding Hand and Knights of Cybertron. And yet, we cannot waste our resources running after mere myths. We need something tangible. And that is exactly what we have now in Jhiaxus and his creation. "
At this point Scorponok's attention turned away from Mindwipe's findings, his gaze focusing to the data on the screens of the Omniglobe. "Nevertheless, I see no new leads I had not considered already in your work. I have spread the word to my agents. Now we can only wait for confirmation of the continued functionality of the Six while reaping the crop of our work elsewhere."
>>”Tyrannis, this is Rippersnapper on board the Decepticon Dropship ST – 4 requesting permission to approach and dock.”<<
Scorponok thought as Rippersnapper's boarding request came though. Having the Terrorcons back would allow the Decepticons to finally leave the Lenocinium Velnero system to pursue other goals.
"Finback, let the Terrorcons to board the Tyrannis
and set the course to Nebulos system. There are some preparations we need to do."
"Aye aye Captain." Was the short response of the crusty old navigator who immediately set their new destination coordinates into the Tyrannis'
flight computer and took control of the ship's tractor beam suite to carefully direct the dropship ST-4 into the hangar of the mighty warship. Once the dropship had been secured in the hangar, Finback closed the hatch and prepared the enormous starship for a quantum jump.
Roughly a klik later, the Semper Tyrannis
had left the Lenocinium Velnero system, leaving behind only traces of discharge of its engines.
