Grimlock returned from the med lab with Hard Head, Repugnus and Repugnus. The cloning process had been a success. Swoop was excited. “Squawk! Me Swoop wish Kup here!” Grimlock agreed with Swoop. “Kup say it like fighting Inflatable Dalek with Dr. How.” Swoop and Grimlock laughed. “It was Who! And the Unphaseable Dalek.” Barked a frustrated Snarl, who had heard the story one too many times. “If you remember the story, Kup eventually shot the Dalek with his phase disruption rifle, so it was far from Unphaseable.” The idea of it all made Snarl laugh. Dinotron jumped in. “Sssooo what now? Hand over the clone and get through the rift?” Hard Head could see as Dinotron’s patients wore thin, so did his veiled disguise. “Me Grimlock give Deathsaurus bug bot clone. But me Grimlock not lose!” Grimlock activated the monitor system. They could see Deathsaurus in his lab working on a new breed of seeker. Starscream, Leozack, Lyzack and Skyquake all lay on tables, in new upgraded bodies getting fresh transfusions of Energon. Pieces of former Decepticons and Predacons lay on the ground. Decepticon Smokescreen, Smokesniper, Smokejumper and Predacon Hellscream. The Autobot onlookers were not envious. “DEATHSAURUS!” shouted Grimlock, causing the Decepticon dictator to drop his surgical tools. “By Primus be damned! Curse you Grimlock! You have shaken me in my time of triumph.” Deathsaurus realized they could see his newest creations.
“Let me introduce the new Energon Seekers. Old timers that needed new bodies, and this one fishy Predacon, whose spark I had to reformat into a jet in order to trap that traitorous glitch Starscream's ghost. Don’t worry Grimlock, most of his fish body is still intact, if you’re into Predacon sushi.” Deathsaurus smiled. Grimlock didn’t understand any of what he just said, but it sounded to Grimlock like he was talking down to him. “Me Grimlock not fish! Me Grimlock King!” Deathsaurus laughed. “Of course, of course. So you called me, I assume your ready to hand over Repugnus or die trying to escape?” “Grimlock say you turn off net, then get bug. Net more important then bug.” Deathsaurus thought this illogical. “What’s so important about the rift, my scanners indicate it’s just dead space. Nothing of interest what so ever. Regardless. I’ll turn off half the net now, and the other half after I get Repugnus.” Grimlock doesn’t negotiate with anyone. Compromise is defeat to a Dinobot. “All Dinobots on bridge being?” Grimlock looked around. “Confirmed.” Replied Hard Head. They sent out the Repugnus clone, which was greeted and escorted back to the space station by insecticlones. “Triceradon, fly at net NOW!” Grimlock barked the orders, and like a dog Triceradon followed, pushing the ship to maximum overdrive. “What are you doing Grimlock, the nets not safe?” Asked a seemingly concerned Deathsaurus. “Me Grimlock in hurry got to go now, bye bye!” Grimlock hung up on Deathsaurus. “Snarl, disengage back section!”
Snarl executed the commands. “Confirmed sir! We are detached.” “Triceradon! Striker! Make ship slow, follow back section through net!” The two Dinobots nodded.
Deathsaurus welcomed Repugnus onto the bridge. “Finally son, you’ve come home.” Deathsaurus turned to the monitor. “Thank you Dinobots, and now, I’ll take your bodies as payment for this little debacle!” Deathsaurus went to activate his weapons, but the Repugnus clone dove in the way grabbing Deathsaurus’s arm. Deathsaurus looked the repugnant clone in the face as it shouted. “Till’ all are one!” It was the detonation code to the bomb implanted by Hard Head. The clone exploded. The Dinobots visual monitor went black. They cheered. Repugnus returned to the bridge relieved. The back section of the ship hit the net at near full speed, and caused a massive chain reaction of explosions, rattling the Dinobot's ship. The Dinobots had to power through the shockwave to get to the rift. The blast nearly killing them. As they approached the rift they could see the continued explosions were causing it to collapse. They needed more speed to get through. The Dinobots activated and deactivated every system they thought might help, but no luck. The hull was degrading. Turbulence was intense as was the heat. Hard Head ran into the back of the ship, remembering an old trick he learned from Kup. He dispersed some anti pursuit mines and detonated them behind the ship, the explosions propelling them beyond their engines capabilities and safely into the rift. As they passed through the rift their monitors were still connected to Deathsaurus’s feed. The static was too thick to see what was happening, but the blast had woken Starscream who attacked his captures and escaped, the last thing the Dinobots heard was Deathsaurus speaking to them in a weak and sinister voice. “This.. isn’t..over..”
