"If Soul Siren's efforts are not successful, I am confidant that Scourge's will be. But if Deadlock wishes to make the attempt... then, by all means."
Turmoil was not exactly jumping with joy as Cyclonus and Scourge barged into the command center. The last encounter between Turmoil and Cyclonus still lingered fresh in the memory of the massive charcoal Decepticon Commander. Not only he had to deal with Deadlock's continuous questioning and complaints but now he had to suffer the company of these two as well? Aloof, insufferable wretches both, the air of superiority surrounding Cyclonus and his favorite henchman was almost thick enough to grasp. Too bad they were almost as good as they thought themselves to be, which made them far too useful to be disposed off. The same could be said of Deadlock.
"That so?" Turmoil snorted out a reply to Cyclonus' statement, "Then why waste time? There are plenty of Autobots down there to interrogate. Easily enough for both Deadlock and Scourge to keep themselves busy for a while."
"What is our next step?"
"Our next step?" Turmoil scoffed in response to the Air Commander's question. So now Cyclonus wanted to cooperate? Truly, the sleek purple Decepticon was difficult one to read. What had changed for him to actually listen to Turmoil now? "You might as well ask that from the High Commander himself. We received a superstring slingshot from Finback two breems ago, announcing the return of Lord Scorponok."
Turmoil turned his gaze from Cyclonus towards a holographic presentation of the Nebulos system on his right and nodded towards a small blinking dot that was moving towards the planet Nebulos from the fringe of the solar system. "The Semper Tyrannis entered the Nebulos system just prior your entrance into the Command Center. The High Commander should be here in-"
Turmoil's sentence was interrupted by a sudden flash of light in the command center, followed by a gradually growing swirling portal appearing across the thin air just in front of a hidden emergency exit door in the far end of the room. It was a wormhole through space and time without no clear ending point in sight - and deep within the swirling vortex the Decepticons could see an approaching dark figure of their commanding officer - Scorponok.
