- Motto: ""I will do for Optimus Primal what Optimus Primal cannot do for himself.""
- Weapon: Energon Cutlass
Like I said in Battlefield Tactics, I have a busy day tomorrow, so I will be updating today.
The liquid energon slammed into the force field holding Sunstreaker and Bluestreak in, and the force field shimmered. The two Autobots jumped up. Even if their drone plan didn't work, this could help. The energon continued to flood the base, and the force field deactivated.
"Let's go!" Sunstreaker said.
He kicked a guard and took the guard's weapon. Pushing through the flood of energon, he tried to find an exit. Bluestreak was right behind him.
"We should get out while the Decepticons are busy taking care of this maintenance glitch."
They pushed through the energon and boarded an elevator, which began going up. Suddenly, it stopped on the next level. Brawl and Swindle, two Combaticons, grabbed them and tried to restrain them. Sunstreaker whirled around and kicked Brawl and tripped Swindle. The other three Combaticons - Onslaught, Vortex, and Blastoff, charged in and opened fire. Sunstreaker shot a hole in the wall and the two Autobots crawled through.
"Okay," said Bluestreak, "every ship has escape pods. We just need to find the Nemesis's."
Barricade motioned for Grindor and Long Haul to patch up the hole. As the two big Decepticons pushed against the current, Barricade turned and looked at two drones, who were desperately trying to use a force field generator to keep the energon out of the rest of the ship.
"Keep that force field up!" he said.
The drones tried, but the energon continued to eat through the field.
"Almost...there!" Long Haul called.
He and Grindor put a huge metal patch on the leaky tube and groaned as the energon abruptly stopped flowing. They fell forward from the lack of pressure. As they stood, the dronemaster came up and saluted.
"Sir," he said. "Lord Megatron is returning from earth. I'm afraid, sir, they've lost."
"Great. So he'll be in a bad mood. This energon leak'll just make it worse."
"Well refine some of this stuff and give it to the prisoners."
"Sir?" said Onslaught. "I...need to talk to you about that. The prisoners escaped."
"Sir, the energon leak caused their force field to malfunction. I'm afraid Megatron won't be too happy. And what if they escape?"
"Fantastic. You're a real positive guy. We'll deal with that later. For now, we should, ah, report to Lord Megatron. Before he finds out."
Megatron and Starscream landed in the hangar, oil leaking from several joints. Scalpel scuttled up and looked at them in shock and worry.
"Oh, hooray," he said. "More for Ze Doctor to be fixink."
"Yes, Scalpel, we will need repairs soon," Starscream said.
"Prepare the repair chamber for Starscream and I," said Megatron. "The warriors can wait."
"Yeah," Starscream replied. "Wh-what he said..."
"Oh, of courze," Scalpel muttered as he scuttled off. "Alwayz heal leader firzt. Leader iz more important zan any ozer soldier in army!"
Megatron rolled his optics. Then Barricade, Grindor, and Long Haul walked up.
"Sir," Barricade said, "we have some bad news..."
