Uraya sky


The silver aerialist opened her afterburners, infighting her engines for just a brief astrosecond. It was enough to rocket her a healthy distance above the Dauntless. Any more than that and her specialized engines would have put her into the planet’s outer atmosphere, just as Thunderwing had designed them. Her long range reconnaissance designed visuals focused in on the drama below. Apparently Shrike had earned the attention of Grimlock luckily for her she wasn’t dead. Of all the Autobots Grimlock was the most threatening and possibly the most dangerous. Then she saw Triggerhappy had taken a hit and seemed to be having malfunctions. The argent femcon sighed inwardly, this was why she was forever grateful her father never put her in lead of a group. Still in her altmode she prepared for her final assault on the shuttle. She was aware of Clench’s firepower and the damage he had caused but ….. Silver knew the ship needed to be forced down. This was where her past days in the academy would prove useful. As a deep space pilot she knew if she disabled just one the pilot would be forced to land. He would no longer have control of the ship, and would be on a course to kiss the ground. Before setting into action she sent a signal to Shrike and Triggerhappy.

>>Triggerhappy, Shrike, we cannot take them in the air this is a sentinel class assault shuttle. It’s meant to battle other ships similar in size and power. Reconfigure for ground assault and combat. Do not take any more damage if you can help it………… The dauntless is coming down.<<

High above the shuttle Silver zeroed in on the primary port maneuvering thrusters. With uncommon grace for a machine, she sent her form into a spirited dive. The nose of her alt mode was precisely aimed at her target. Like a falcon (a bird they would learn of on earth) the silver angel descended on her prey, assaulting it like a true raptor. Her frictionless frame sliced through the air without a sound. At the last moment only a few meters from the ship she transformed with blade in hand. Using her momentum and the knowledge from the teachings of her father and mentor, she struck the small cluster of rockets, cutting into the core. The machinery exploded as the internal wires crossed and the fuel ignited.

Silver hovered in robot mode watching the fireworks, plainly visible to those inside the ship. Silently she hoped she had made her mentor proud. If she was lucky then Mindwipe would have seen her every move. The opportunity of working with Clench’s crew felt good. She was so sick of solo missions. Perhaps when this was over she would request to be assigned…. That is if the ex-pit fighter would have her.

Sword still in hand the glistening femme held back, noting the position of her teammates. As she did she noticed the approach of Roadblock’s shell. She cringed, the idea of such technology was unnatural, and disgusting to her. Secretly she wondered if the shell felt like her own liquid silver armor. Did it cause pain as hers did every time she went into flux? Did it sear the wearer’s servos the way her body did every time she became a statue of living quicksilver. She was sure Roadblock would never admit if it did, but it still worried her because Thunderwing showed an interest in it.

Shuttle Dauntless

Grimlock jerked back into the shuttle as soon as the Decepticon leapt away from it. He wasn’t going to stick his head out there to get shot off, not when the Decepticon was likely waiting for him. As fire poured in through the hole Grimlock knew he had been right.

The Dinobot commander was already making his way back to the bridge of the assault shuttle when the entire ship shook violently. He staggered down the hall a bit until the ship stabilized but he could definitely tell something was wrong. The ship had probably taken a major hit of some sort. “Scrap," he muttered to himself as he began jogging to the bridge.

Shuttle Dauntless – Bridge

Grimlock walked in and took his seat back in the command chair. “I leave for few seconds and everything goes to Pit. Ship status report!"

Ruins of the Crystal City - The Sculptor's Forum

Skullcruncher had been uncharacteristically quite as he and his teammates waited for the order to strike. He had been mulling over there last mission together, one that had left him feeling fairly unfulfilled. Acting as a decoy or distraction force wasn’t something he particularly enjoyed or was good at.

Now that the order had been given the swamp warrior spoke up. “Finally! This time I won’t leave until I’ve had my fill of those disgusting Autobots!" The Decepticon began jogging towards the rapidly descending vessel. He would take to the sky once he saw it actually crash so he didn’t get hit by any debris or stray shots from the ship or other Decepticons.

Shuttle Dauntless- Bridge

"Aw Frak," Swoop muttered as the ship's sensors informed him of the artillery fire mere nano-kliks before it tore into the shuttle. Amidst the tremors, the fire, and the veritable forest of warning lights on his console, the Dinobot pilot fought to maintain a controlled descent. Sure, things were bad. But no worse than that jury-rigged hunk of slag they'd come back from Earth in, and he'd managed to land that wreck! He was certain he could land this one as well.

Then, things had gone from bad to worse.

Ironhide was asking about the damage. The port thrusters went up in flames. And now Grimlock was demanding a sit rep.

Okay. He asked for it.

"Our aft is completely blown to slag, The main engines are GONE, port attitude control is dead, half the ship is on fire, and we're hemorrhaging fuel. So basically...we're frakked, Boss."

"Me Swoop just detailed her, too," the pilot added sullenly.

Uraya

>>Understood.<< she replies in a calm tone to Silver despite the pain she feels inside at being rather useless as far as she's concerned.

A soldier trying to find her way among the big bots. To find out just what she's good at besides slicing things up. There has to be something.
Her mind almost goes into a philosophical mood while her combat computer tracks the descent of the Dauntless, but she prevents it so her mind is clear for the battle ahead.

She needs to destroy someone. The taste of victory might bring her out of the slump she's in even if she leaves one foe on the ground in a heap. That's all. She needs to feel useful. To -be- useful. To be more than a mindless drone that can only shoot.

All the while she moves across the surface of Cybertron in her robot mode at a few dozen mph. using her ever present unchanging engines to push her along with her high powered rifle, and 4 blades at the ready.

There's not a whole lot of point in staying airborne and assaulting a ship like the Dauntless right now. She threw her best at the craft, and did nothing of note to it. That fact will eat at her sanity, surely.
More fodder for her obsession with more power. More facts for her combat computer to pour over.
Some might call that combat computer something like voices in her head.
A voice that rarely ever shut up from cycle to cycle. A voice that isn't hers. A voice that reminds her that she's got potential to fulfill, and that if she can't then she may as well walk into a smelter.

She laments the loss off 3 of her 4 beam cannon rounds. She threw them away, it seems trying to do something that was indeed impossible for someone like her. She hates wasting her ammo to say the least.
Firing the 4th shot means she can't perform that energy reroute she had done in the taking of Tagan if push comes to shove so she needs to save it. Save it for an assault that mattered.

So she got the attention of Autobots. What'd she do with it? What could she do with it?
Those questions got her cranial unit aching as her combat computer strives to answer them even they come to the obvious conclusion. She did what she could. If she didn't do what she did when she did it, she'd be caught in the explosion caused by her allies.

Dauntless - Bridge

"Well, better go ahead and brace for impact, lads," Kup said, retrieving his musket laser from subspace. He knew full well that when they hit the ground, they'd need to come out fighting.

If the old warrior was the least bit panicked, he certainly didn't show it. He had been through this and worse thousands of times, and the thing that had kept Kup alive and able to come back for more was a cool combat processor and a steady hand actuator when it was time to fight. It was one of the things that couldn't really be taught. All those vorns at the Academy, the training cadres...you can teach technique and procedure, but you can't teach bravery. That gets learned out in the field, or it doesn't get learned at all.

"C'mon, you old bag of bolts," he told Ironhide. "Whaddya say you and me take point once we touch down? Been a while since the two of us were first out the door on a raid."

He had no doubt the red Autobot's zeal for a good tussle was just as great as his own.



Outskirts of the Crystal City

While his vehicle shell continued its steady, rumbling approach to the likely crash-landing point of the Dauntless, Roadblock himself arrived in his air cruiser, cutting altitude to come in low over the ruins of the Crystal City. He had no desire to expose himself to an Autobot assault shuttle's guns, even if the shuttle was crippled and going down. As he entered the area, he opened a comm channel to Clench.

>>"I'm here," he informed the formidable commando leader. "Got some kinda plan fer this party, or are we just steppin' in an' startin' the killin'?"<<



Ruins of the Crystal City

Success! Leader fearless our it has done! Down come the Autobots!

Weirdwolf loped toward the edge of the ruins as he watched the badly damaged shuttle shudder and hurdle down toward the surface. It wouldn't be long at all now. He primed his triple-stage missile launchers and kept on advancing at a brisk pace, his powerful sensors already attempting to ascertain just how many Autobots and of what sort the commandos were going to face.

Hope I they brought their warriors best! He let out a maniacal, growling laugh as he galloped forward. Need them they will!

Dauntless-Bridge

"What do I say?" Ironhide replied to Kup, smiling wildly. "I say, lets send them back to the pit! Who's with me?!" Ironhide cried, hoping to distract the rest of the crew from their impending crash. And, just about managing to stay stood up, Ironhide pulled out his Liquid-Spewing Rifle and turned to face Kup. "Bet I can take more out than you can, you old rust bucket." Ironhide said to Kup, looking forward to the little competition, should Kup agree to it.

Sludge wobbled around as the ship began its descent towards the ground, and after much resisting, clumsily fell back into Slag.

"Oops. Sorry." He said to Slag, as he picked himself off of his comrade and started to wobble again, and then overhearing Ironhide's cry, Sludge clumsily turned around and tripped again, falling back onto Slag. "Me with you Ironhide!!!" He cried.

Uraya-Skies

>>Ow... spoil sport...<<Triggerhappy replied to Silverstrike >>Just wondering, but does a half severed leg count as too much damage, or do you expect me to carry on...<< Triggerhappy asked, although he almost knew what the answer would be.

Triggerhappy continued to fly alongside the Dauntless, it seemed that the Autobots inside were no longer interested in shooting at him. 'Yay...' He thought.

Shuttle Dauntless - Bridge

"AAARRGH, Swoop, you pointing shuttle wrong way!! Me Slag can't get a shot!!" Slag seemed oblivious to the chaos in the rear of the shuttle, the conversation around him, and the ammo indicator of his weapon flashing 'EMPTY'. "Turn it up! UP!!!"

It was only Grimlock's return to the cockpit that shook him out of his singleminded desire to relocate the Silver Seeker. "WHAT!?!?? You Swoop done it now! It supposed to be my job to set things on fire 'round here, but maybe we give that job yYRK!!!"

....

"You Sludge get off!!! You....hanf in my face...MMpphh...GRRRAAAAGGH!!!!" Slag grabbed Sludge and pushed, aiming to throw his 'friend' out into the passenger area. Or maybe through a wall. He wasn't in the mood to aim.

Clench had noticed Roadblock approaching before the ground forces commander had opened communications link between the two. If he hadn't, it would have been unforgivable carelessness from his part. Roadblock's airborne position allowed the use of direct laser linking for communications and rather than endangering Dauntless picking any messages before crashing, Clench decided to the said way of communications while blowing through the ruins of once magnicifent city. Even though he really did not believe he had to worry about the Autobots picking up any radio communications in their current peril, Clench was not one to take chances.

>>"We go in fast and strike hard before the Autobots recover from the crashlanding. That's our only chance unless you have reinforcements to throw in. We are speaking of those damned Dynobots after all. Tough slaggers. You are welcome to join the assault. I wouldn't mind seeing your new toys in action."<<

“Scrap."

The shuttle was going to crash, there was no avoiding that. The Decepticons had damaged the ship beyond any hope of keeping her airborne. Now all they could do was try to make it a crash landing and not simply slam into the ground like a meotorite.

Grimlock jumped up and staggered to the helm in the bucking and shifting ship. Normally he trusted Swoop and his piloting expertise, but the bombardier was going to need an extra set of hands with this one. The Dinobot commander punched in a series of commands on the console. “Shifting power to landing thrusters. Should help slow descent a bit. Bring ship down with that and whatever thrusters you have Swoop. Not matter where we land as long as we walk away from it."

As the two Dinobots worked to bring the vessel down it began to drift away from Uraya and towards the Tagan Heights. With so many thrusters damaged no one could control where it landed now.

Ruins of the Crystal City - The Sculptor's Forum

Mindwipe watched the aerial sortie with gret interest. Silverstrike had done well. The hypnotist was well pleased with his protegee. In truth, Shrike performed admirably as well, but Mindwipe's sentimental pride in his student somewhat outweighed his his appreciation for the other femme's actions.

Triggerhappy was an entirely different matter. The fool had exposed Shrike's position, and had proven little more than a nuisance. It was regrettable that he did not have the megacycles necessary to rewire shootist's faulty neural net.

When the order came to attack, the apostate remained still while his more boisterous comrades shouted their battle-lust to the skies above. There was no doubt Mindwipe shared his brothers' enthusiasm for the coming conflict. However, he was, by and large, the most cautious of the three, and something was amiss. His notorious optics were trained on the enemy vessel above. Or, more acurately, upon the trail of smoke and fire the plummeting craft left in its wake.

While the Dauntless' path was quite erratic, one very important detail...

"Sir," the shrikebat said to Clench. "I believe we have...a slight complication. Yes."

Shuttle Dauntless – Bridge

"On it, Boss." Grimlock's rerouting of the remaining engine power helped. The Dinobot leader's massive strength pulling at the copilot's stick helped a lot more. It was beginning to look like they'd be safe on the ground in no time, and kicking some Decepticon aft. Swoop was a bit possessive when it came to the LSC's transportation. The Bombardier was eager for a little payback.

Now that he had some help muscling the ship's nose up, he tried to get a handle on where they where going. It was surprisingly easy to determine. And the news was decidedly NOT good.

"Uhhhh...Boss..." the pterodactyl began. "We got a problem. Telemetry's back online, and Me Swoop got a pretty good idea where we're gonna end up."

"Somewhere in the Tagan Heights."

(OOC: The next poster in the LSC can move us to Tagan.)

Ruins of the Crystal City

"Slaggit!"

Roadblock's vehicle shell slammed on its brakes and it skidded to a noisy halt. Meanwhile, the inner robot aboard the purple and black wind cruiser wheeled about to plot a new course. This ain't goin' accordin' ta plan, is it? Well, I don't give a damn. Here or there, we're killin' some Autobots. The vehicle shell turned on its eight spiked tires and rumbled off at top speed in the direction from whence it came not long ago. The wind cruiser shot head of it, carrying Roadblock's inner robot form toward the Tagan Heights at high speed. He opened a comm channel to Clench.

>>"Figger the new plan's ta hit 'em on our own turf. Don't really care, myself. Dead Autobots are dead Autobots, whether they're dead in the Heights or Uraya. See ya on the battlefield, boss."<<

Meanwhile, Weirdwolf was more than a little dismayed to see the Dauntless tumble and plummet toward the edge of the horizon. Transit back to the Tagan Heights wouldn't be quite so easy for him as it was for Roadblock, but nonetheless he would be able to employ one of the Decepticons' chief advantages over the Autobots - robot mode flight. He transformed from beast mode to robot mode and took to the air, making a beeline for the Heights.

"Aside the Autobots somehow recovering even partial manouverity of their shuttle?" Clench smirked sarcastically to Mindwipe as he transformed into robot mode and launched himself to the air to gain greater speed in order to be there when the Dauntless was to crash into the border regions of Tagan Heights. "Do tell me."

Just as he finished his sentenced, Clench's communicator picked up a message from Roadblock, which he quickly replied to. >>"LSC slaggers got enough maneuvarability to control their crash. But no matter. Couldn't agree with you more. This could even give us an opportinity to crush them in one sweep with reinforcements within few kliks away. Good hunting.""<<

Selecting a flightpath crossing over the position of the Longshot, Clench activated a return subroutine of the gunship through remote link, activating the ship's autopilot in order to return it back to Tagan Heights starport. After all, there was no sense left such a valuable asset to rust in the Uraya wastelands.

To make sure his team would be up to date with change of events, Clench sent out another transmission on broad frequency. >>"Everyone! The enemy ship trajectory points out that its crash course will take it to Tagan Heights. Activate your flight protocols and pursue it."<<

Grudgingly the old commando opened one more comm-link after finishing the message sent to his team. >>"Clench to Thunderwing. The Autobot shuttle has been crippled but they maintained some maneuverability. Projected crash course takes them to borderlands of Tagan Heights. While I admit initial failure of forcing the enemy ship down to Uraya this opens up an opportunity to outnumber the LSC and strike against them while they are vulnerable. I am requesting reinforcements to coordinates hardcoded into this message."<<

Uraya

Shrike couldn't help but be disappointed that the Autobot craft her team had worked so hard on crashing isn't going to crash where planned.
Primary mission failed.
She thought bitterly to herself.

Spotting the Long Shot flying away, she figures the plan to retreat isn't in going to happen.
Along with the Long Shot she sees her comrades flying towards Tagan under their own power.

With a slight bend to her legs she propels herself skywards, and changes her thruster's angle to put her in a course to meet up with the rest of the Squad.
Instead of being out on her own, perhaps this time she can reinforce the main assault group to put more weight in the hammer when it comes down on the Autobots in Tagan.
Yes. Clench's team is the Hammer, And the forces of Tagan the anvil! The Autobots are there to be crushed in between them!
