>>"...unlike vindicator who seems to be one step short of having a fully blown panic attack!"<<
>>"...When you're aft is buried under several tonnes of rock and your head soaked in lava for longer than it should be, then you can start to realise what panic is Jabberjaw!"<< Said Vindicator looked at Crueljaw with one optic wider than the other. Sure the surly mechanoid had a temper, and at the best of times was barely tolerable. Yes Vindicator had thought that Crueljaw an ass of the worse kind, but in retrospect Vindicator knew that Crueljaw was their jackass. He noted the sliding click of Jaws blade enclosure, but filed it away for some other time. He got to him, pysically if not verbally. Now he knew what made shortarse's surly bodyguard tick, and he smiled all the better for it.
Although stepping in the human wasn't the most flavourful part of the day so far.
>>"Anyway, I shall deal with the central circuit breakers and whoever wishes to join me,"<< Darkfire said as she glanced first, and longest, at Vindicator, then Psychout and Landgrab, finally sending a distasteful look at Crueljaw, >>"...is welcome to join me. And for those of us who like to make a grand theatrical entrance, I would suggest trying not to draw any unwanted attention. Like Vindicator said, we don't know how many humans are crawling around our technology. They could touch something they aren't supposed to in a panic. Hopefully, we'll be able to secure the base with minimal contact."<<
The assassin looked in Vindicator's direction once more before finally adding about the holo-map of the base.
>>"The each of the two teams will need a copy of the holo map to navigate around this place."<<
The lingering gaze wasn't lost on Vindicator, and the large mechanoid felt his fuel pump surge slightly, but in composing himself, the siege master studied his holomap then began a download process, effectively duplicating the map and then saving it into a memory chip, ejecting the small card from a slot in his chest-plate, and, gently - well as gently as the massive seige maker could manage - picked the chip up from the tray and handed it over to Jaws.
>>"So you don't get your aft lost in here..."<< He paused and then looked up with his vision altered to check for thermal sources >>"...and to answer your question Jaws, yes the main source of siphoning energy into this place was to tap the earth's thermal underground. Quite a feat considering that all it took was a little natural power, a weakness in the crust of this planet, and the siphoning and building skills of the Decepticon's resident builders..."<< of course he was talking about the Constructicons, but also took in the majesty of it all before continuing on >>"....when you think about it, it is impressive, considering that it was also designed to keep us off the Autobot's radar - no energon output, no daring raids to keep the base powered...."<< he gave a sniff and hen returned his vision to normal before playing with a few switches in a compartment on his forearm, adusting the settings for his optics to pick up human bio-metrics, and in testing, his vision switched from green, to red, to yellow and finally to blue, where picking up the biological sources of human's would be most gratifying - and make them easier to locate.
He broke the radio-chatter and spoke hushedly, his voice lightly echoing off the walls of the corridor.
"That duplicate map will help you get to the main command center and databanks of the base, and it will also help you spot any annoying human set-ups..." He paused as he finalised the dial in of the settings for his optics. "...I'd recommend dialling in your optics to Bio-metric read out so that any humans can be picked up near by, but hopefully we won't have any problems with these fleshlings in here...."
Vindicator turned and looked sideways at Darkfire, a smile crossing his faceplate.
"I guess then that leaves it to you and I Darkfire, to get this base powered back up in some core locations..." He looked back at Jaws and winked at the surly mechanoid "... If I go with Jaws, we'll end up in a scrap, and if Jaws goes with you Darkfire, I have a feeling that all that will come back of him is his head...."
Vindicator called up the holo-map and keyed the coordinates for the generator compound of the base, the blue and green wire-mesh casting a soft glow over his hard edges as the indicator arrow slowly flashed in the correct direction. He indicated with his right hand in the direction to go as he moved next to Darkfire.
"...Fem-con's first..." he said politely.
