Shockwave’s Tower – Main Lab
Razorclaw monitored Divebomb’s progress of unloading the scientific equipment as the Predacon Commander waited for the other members of his team to respond to his earlier communiqué. It didn’t take too long to hear from Tantrum, who wanted to know where he could dump the fuel cells he was carrying aimlessly through the tower. Razorclaw opened a comm line to Tantrum:
>>Take the fuel cells to the storage room on Level 3. I’d send you a map of the place, but I am unable to download one since the tower isn’t fully powered up yet. The storage room won’t be too hard to locate, though, and it should be clearly marked. Once you’re done unloading the cells, report to the main lab facility with the rest of us.<<
Once Razorclaw was done giving Tantrum further instructions, he received an encoded communication from Shockwave.
>>Understood, Commander Shockwave. I will get right on it.<<
Razorclaw then turned back to Divebomb. “I’m needed elsewhere. Finish unloading the equipment. Once you are done, wait for Tantrum and the others to arrive. Make sure they don’t wreck the place while I’m gone.” Divebomb nodded and watched as his commander exited the main lab.
Shockwave’s Tower - Energy Distribution Halls
Razorclaw entered the long dormant distribution halls of energon that had powered Shockwave’s tower many vorns ago. It was now a dark and dank place to be sure, but that would soon change. The Predacon Commander knew what had to be done as he made his way to the far end of the hall. He approached a dust covered wall that seemed flat with no discernable surface features. But looks could be deceiving and were in this case.
Razorclaw brushed away the thick layer of dust and exposed a panel in the wall. Raising his right arm, his hand disappeared into his wrist socket and was replaced by a power tool, which he then used to unscrew the panel at the four corners. Once the screws were undone, the Predacon Commander carefully removed the panel and set it aside before turning his attention to the energon connections in front of him. Since the tower currently lacked the appropriate power, he needed to make the necessary links manually instead of via a computer terminal. It would take a bit more time, but it was something that had to be done.
Studying the connectors carefully in the darkened hall, Razorclaw identified the 400 terawatt energy cable and then carefully hooked it into the tower’s energon siphon. Once the connection was secured, he turned his attention to the large power switch to his left and flipped it upwards, initiating the energon flow.
If Razorclaw could have smiled, he would have as the tower began to come alive again and light filled the energy distribution halls for the first time in what seemed like forever. The Predacon Commander then quickly replaced the wall panel, making sure each screw was in its proper place. Once that was completed, he exited the energon facility, closing the doors behind him and initiating the locking mechanism. Once the entrance was secured, Razorclaw then swiftly made his way up to the nerve center of the tower to report to Shockwave.
Shockwave’s Tower – The Nerve Center
Razorclaw entered the tower's command center, taking notice of the large amount of surveillance equipment that adorned the large room. He had expected to see as much. Shockwave was always one who liked to intimidate others by keeping an eye on everything and everyone. Once the network was completely restored, the cycloptic mech could easily do just that, but it would take some time. Still, Razorclaw had to be careful when moving about the tower, not knowing how long it would take ol’ one eye to get his cameras up and running even on a limited basis.
Razorclaw quickly approached the large command throne where Shockwave waited for the Predacon leader’s report. “My lord, I have connected 400 terawatts of energon into the tower’s energy siphon as ordered, sir. I have also locked the hall's entrance. It now only requires a security code of your choosing, commander.”
