“Prepare Yourselves to be Finished!”…


Megatron and Reinforcements Cometh

:CON: Soundwave knew that the Autobots eased down the Earth’s defenses to let in the first wave of Decepticons to the planet’s zone. He had those Decepticons become guinea pigs, with the exception of Artillertron and Six-Shot, to combat Straitway’s team of Autobots. Though something else is scheming afoot. :CON:

Upon Megatron’s cavalry arrival, Soundwave had his team (consisting of Laserbeak, Ratbat, Reflector, Shadowblaze, Buzzsaw and Ravage) work together to knock out Earth’s orbit defenses. This allows Megatron’s reinforcement team to descend upon Earth without early detection. They now can help the other Decepticons in their first battle against Straitway and her Autobot regiment at their city base.


Once Megatron and his captain-in-arms, Maulturret, along with his team rendezvous with Soundwave, they enter Earth atmosphere undiscovered and unscathed.
Inevitably, his cavalry team reaches the battle site. Megatron sees the battle being lost, but to only care about one thing in mind…

The cavalry of Decepticons arrive at the battle. The Autobots gasp at the very sight of Megatron; seeing him live-in-the-shell.
“Oh my…NOOOO! It’s MEGATRON!!!” one of the Autobots, Moralina frets.
The fresher Autobot recruits all over the ground base start to scramble in utter panic as they all heard her scream in fear.
Megatron has a primary mission that he wants his mercenaries to carry out. He sends some of the attackers who are still active to breach the fortress walls.

The primary mission: Infiltrate the Autobot fortress and locate the communications chamber to confiscate any transmission information history that may contain any leads to Prime.





The Decepticons continue to attack the Autobot city. A big blast busted a hole in one of the chamber walls of the fortress. Blurr, who is standing inside the other side of the blast, moves back in time to avoid the explosion caused by the blast.
Various Decepticons shoot laser fire into the breached wall into the hole. Blurr, with panicky skill, fires back with an automatic laser rifle that shoots as if it were an AK-47 firearm. (He dodges laser fire quite effectively on his own two feet alone as well.)
One Decepticon manages to fly in the hole. Blurr then defends the inner quarters but cannot do it alone.
Kup quickly joins to help Blurr out to ward off the Decepticon. That one enemy is having the best of Blurr as Kup keeps the fight even. The Decepticon ignores Blurr while he tries to fire back at the ‘Con. The ‘Con then decides to go after Kup after Blurr misses horribly.
“BLURR, HELP ME!!” Kup implores. (Kup’s mannerism in his voice was as if he actually were to say, ‘Help me, won’t ‘cha?!’)
Vaportrail comes running into the quarters. He sees the enemy Decepticon attacking Blurr and Kup. He deploys his brown-colored, targeting-interfaced, view finding visors over his face.
The loose-cannon of a ‘Bot is then so eager to let up his viewfinder visors. He brings up his handgun weapon tilted sideways, aims and THEN discharges his weapon…
…Vaportrail aims directly for the enemy’s head but he hits the double barrel rifle off her left arm instead since she evaded his gunfire just in time. Blurr quickly watches her double barrel rifle fly off her arm, up and over past his head.
Swell! So now Vaportrail has to switch to a secondary option. He devises a distraction by yelling out, “You’re not catchin’ ME…ya’ TIN CAN!
Vaportrail runs to the hallway to his left in hopes to lure the Decepticon away from Kup and Blurr. He dashes into the hallway and makes a diversion by emitting a motor sound coming from his left wrist. This was to make believe he transformed to burn rubber out of her site. The enemy now pursues him with vigor and reaches the hallway, flying, making a right-hand turn to the hallway where Vaportrail ran into. When entering the hallway, she quickly transforms into her jet form and opens fire until she reaches the end of the hallway. She changes back into her robot form only to find out that she has not located that pesky ‘Bot. She then flies on in search of the Autobots’ main communications room.
With the trick of sound, Vaportrail comes out of hiding so he can reveal himself to Kup and Blurr. He drops out of one of the hidden crevices of the hallway in car form and then changes back into a robot before he lands. He discloses to Kup and Blurr his left wrist as he deactivates his sound effects trick device and boasts, “Told ‘chu she’s not catching my can,” leading the enemy off to a fake trail.
Blurr brings up the fact that the Decepticon, whom Vaportrail had just let go, IS STILL INSIDE THE BASE AND COULD DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING! Kup then bops Vaportrail on the back of his head with his right palm and bellows, “You knuckle-headed dimwit! While that dame flew past you, you could have tucked out and LET HER HAVE IT! Now she’s loose inside the base and could be anywhere!” The three of them then move on to warn Ether of the threat that could very well be headed her way.

Ether gathers all the human pals and the rest of the Databots to escape the communications room where she and Mixsound are placed in charge. Before evacuation, she asks Ember to transfer Teletraan IV’s data wirelessly to Mixsound since his capacity can literally hold thousands of Terabytes of memory. Now, Mixsound is still in the armory room keeping communications throughout the base during battle keeping tabs on things. Then Ether calls on Amtract to erase completely everything that Teletraan IV had on its data banks. Ether and Mixsound would both have to work together and make plans for building yet another computer system. The Autobots will have to relocate to another area that is yet to be determined.
Ether then remembers the warning Cliffjumper issued to her earlier…before the Decepticons even attacked the base. Cliffjumper of course trusted Springer, Kup and the few others who survived the last big war of 2005 who now guard this city. He did not put his full trust in the Autobots who were new in service and now guard the Earth at this base. Although he saw something in Ether, that he would place his great trust and unwavering faith in her. Maybe it was her prowess. Maybe it was her sense of responsibility and duty. She somehow earns his trust enough to tell her of this base’s escape tunnel.


Megatron continues to storm the Autobot fortress. He to joins in to support his generals, Artillertron and Six-Shot. With Maulturret by his side, he is relentlessly frantic in stalking down Prime!


At the base, pandemonium spreads amongst the Autobots of Megatron coming in with reinforcements. At her surprise, Straitway still intends to carry her new plan. :BOT:

:CON: Meanwhile, Novasonic is still in search for the communications center under Megatron’s orders. These orders go to whomever can breach the fortress’ defenses. In fact,…Novasonic is one of the new warriors of the air strike force. She was the Decepticon who shattered the fortress windows and blasted the hole through the wall that lead to the chamber that Blurr was posting.
Her buddy, Trickslip, joins in by teleporting to where Novasonic is. The hole in the fortress wall Novasonic blasted is how Trickslip was easily able to gain entry. Just by seeing the hole, Trickslip can teleport inside the other side of the hole and keep on teleporting her way through inside the base until she can lock on to the coordinates Novasonic has sent her. Soundwave has given Trickslip a data extraction device in order to carry out this mission. He also gave such devices to select others in case they may make it inside the fortress. Now…there are two Decepticons inside the fortress! :CON:


Espina, the Chief Autobot advisor of the city and Remedios, the lead Autobot medic have heard gunfire INSIDE of the base from a distance. They heard it from a random hallway on their way to Straitway’s command room. They realize that they have to defend any Autobot from attack within the base, no matter the cost.
“Do you hear that?” Remedios faces Espina to make sure she is not imagining anything.
“That’s coming from inside of the fortress,” Espina confirms. The two of them scurry off using their audio receptors to guide themselves towards the unseen raucous.

While Ether rounded up Allyson and both of the children, Braden and Jonah, Mixsound joins in and carries Denzel, Abraham and DeAndre’ to safety. Mixsound now joins with Ether. She was very thankful for Cliffjumper for giving her the heads up on the escape route plan. Amtract and Ember were accompanying all of them for the protection of their organic life form companions.
Mixsound transforms into a small computer terminal device and accesses the base’s security system to pinpoint where the Decepticon was in the base.
“Any word where that Decepticon is?” Ether prompts to Mixsound.
“She’s headed towards where Teletraan is!” he updates. Quickly he transforms back into his robot form and continues on the move with the others to safety. Mixsound had no idea however of Trickslip, THE OTHER DECEPTICON, slipping through the base by teleportation and accompanying the first Decepticon intruder.


Both Decepticons now have to work together to try to figure out how to extract any information concerning Prime’s location. They had to find Teletraan first in order to do so. Trickslip and Novasonic came across only two Autobot guards. Strangely, they looked like training bots for some reason. A pair of such buckets of bolts they were. The two Decepticons easily take the guards down and successfully locate the data-communications room.
Teletraan IV is right in their sights!
Suddenly the alarms blare out and the lights surrounding the two flare red. Unfamiliar and unauthorized personnel has intruded the computer room. Steel gates shudder down between them and Teletraan IV. In case another steel gate seals their way out, in urgency, Trickslip quickly warps Novasonic out of the fortress.
:BOT: The contingency trap Ether has set worked wonderfully as the two Decepticons were forced completely out of the entire base. The two ‘Cons never even knew the Databots have erased all of the data bank information completely out of Teletraan IV anyhow. This was thanks to Databots: Ember and Amtract. :BOT:
Novasonic and Trickslip both had to report to Megatron and abort their primary mission.

On top of this, Optimus Prime couldn’t be found ANYWHERE…



The battle proceeds. :CON: Maulturret and Megatron tried to take out some of the major building structures and defenses of the fortress from outside of the base. Megatron receives a radio signal from Novasonic reporting the operation being a bust.
Megatron transforms from tank to robot form with Maulturret along to follow. He turns to his captain-in-arms at his right and says, “Our first mission is aborted. We go on with this task…DESTROY EVERY AUTOBOT IN SIGHT.”

:BOT: From the command tower, using his abilities, Audiocrash picks up Megatron’s announcement to Maulturret to scrap their primary mission to hunt for Prime and proceed to killing all the Autobots in the city! He springs out of his console panel from his storage data media form, straight into a mini revving red racecar and then changes to his robot form in a salute to report this news to Straitway. Straitway has just returned from a secret meeting with someone.


Straitway, the Autobot fortress leader, reaches for her extra armor. She inputs a code on a keypad mounted on a wall in the command tower. A secret door reveals itself to open up a revolving closet with her armored gear on deck.
Sundown reaches the command chamber and sees Straitway armoring up. He sees no reason for her to armor up, even though she would be going against Megatron. She was powerful enough to take him on without armor, Sundown thought.
Straitway saw the battle slipping ever since the Autobot Earth guardians lost their composure after seeing Megatron in person for the first time. She did not like the looks of things even if the battle was slipping by a slight margin. However, with Megatron here, Straitway wanted to seal his fate…not to allow his forces to win - this - battle!
“I’ll be ready for Megatron and the Decepticons with a little something extra.” By this, she means her extra armor and firepower.
Sundown however sees past what she tells him and figures out a deeper reason why she has to armor up.
“It’s because of those guys! They mysteriously show themselves here and YOU’RE practically gonna' give yourself up?!!”
Sundown saw no sense or validity in sacrificing herself for the sake of the ‘squad of strangers’, even if they proved to be allies. “YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW EXACTLY WHO…”
-“This must not be spoken to anyone…,” she looked at him sternly. “ANYONE!” she repeated.
“Well, hey…for one, you know how he would feel about this.” (Sundown is referring about Pike-Up. Sundown knows Pike-Up has certain feelings for Straitway.)
“You are to join up with Downshifter and continue to follow under his command. They are all meeting up at the escape route out of the city. Don’t even tell him about this discussion,” demanded Straitway.
Whoa…so THAT’S what’s up?!! Is it him?...
“I mean our boy, Downshifter is a cool commander, but to have him carry the weight of th…”
Straitway’s diversion has succeeded.

“It’s because if unbeknownst by Megatron, Delta-Fervor will be his first likely target. Delta can take great care. Megatron won’t realize someone else has it.”
“Alright… but wait! What escape route are you talking about?”
“Radio Ether! She’ll fill you in.”
Easily convinced about the subject concerning Delta-Fervor, Sundown buys along with what Straitway was saying to him and finally goes off to join the others in escaping.




All of the Decepticons are now on the hunt. The fortress is taking in heavy damage and the battle starts to turn over to the Decepticons’ advantage.

The visiting Autobot committee are now covering the Autobots who are making their escape. This was a front as not to become too obvious that the other Autobots were evading the battlegrounds. This team of ‘Bots definitely seem like they can hold their own…just enough to hold out the Decepticons for the time being. -- Soon, those Autobots all see a heavily armored jet, flying in pink and orange, laced in white stripe and black decals, zoom from a high tower structure.








Maulturret looks up in the air and sees what is coming their way…and it’s approaching at a rather fast speed.
“We’ve got another pest to worry about!” he exclaims.
Straitway swoops in and starts her attack on random Decepticons. She then mercilessly deploys her volley of lasers AND missiles directly at Megatron and his surrounding company.
Megatron blurts out to Soundwave to inquire, “SOUNDWAVE! Who in blazes is that Autobot firing at us?!!”
Soundwave reports his analysis:
The light rust-colored, strong, husky and astute Maulturret then says, “No matter which “way” she’s named, the only way she’s goin’ is DOWN…RIGHT NOW!” He fires once towards the air from the tank barrel on his back. Then transforms back into a tank and tries firing at the airborne attacker. Straitway answers back with two homing missiles coming right at him. Before any warning from Megatron yelling, “SCRAMBLE!”, Maulturret already has transformed into robot form. He didn’t even need Megatron’s warning for him to move. Others although were a bit slow on their feet (or to get off their feet to fly out of the way in ample time.) Maulturret flies out just to avoid the two homing missiles ready to kill him. The missiles themselves just hit ground as Maulturret times himself skillfully. The explosion of the missiles making contact with the ground made other surrounding Decepticons feel the impact.

- - KABOOM!! - -

The two missiles luckily missed all of the Decepticon targets.
“So. THAT’S her…Straitway,” Megatron grumbles.

Maulturret, Soundwave and Megatron had to take evasive action. :CON:

Soundwave and Maulturret try to fire at Straitway as she dives in for her fourth strike. Megatron takes to the air and meets Straitway at her altitude level.
Moving at high velocity, the Autobot City leader does not relent.
Megatron fires with his black, chrome cannon on his right arm.


Straitway then fires straight at Megatron while flying full speed toward him. Megatron drops altitude by using the Earth’s gravity and aims directly upwards to fire from underneath her while she speeds by him. Megatron avoids collision AND attempts to score a hit with this intelligent method.
His enemy executes a ‘barrel roll’ to avoid his fire with pristine skill.
The jet then circles back and starts firing again.


A bunch of narrow escapes made for the Decepticons ever since Straitway first flew in. After Megatron regroups with his minions, Tripper, a soldier under Maulturret’s small division, runs to him.
“Megatron! We’ve got to look at things this way. I’d say in order t-t-to take out the city, you would have to take out th-the queen, then y-you take out the city!”
“Hmm…perhaps. Perhaps so. Maulturret! You and the Beasticons go after the escaping Autobots! Use caution and attack from a distance. Even if they may not prove formidable, they will outnumber you. They may stand a chance against the likes of even you. Amoraliss will be needed for assistance. Everyone else…TAKE THAT AUTOBOT DOWWWWWWWWN!!!”
The other Decepticons are haplessly missing their single main target; being Straitway.


The Decepticon captain and the Beasticons see Autobots fleeing to try to make it back inside the base. In his cognitive processor, Maulturret is wondering what chance do those Autobots have by fleeing inside the fortress. ‘Don’t they know that the entire place will soon be surrounded?’ he thought to himself. With him, the Beasticons: J-Rad, Blooddusk, Flamespan, Loophole and Horizon, see some of those Autobots running for cover indoors. They all then combine into Amoraliss by the time one of the Autobots makes it inside. The other remaining two still running are mercilessly pelted and pierced with automatic gunfire emitted out of twin Uzi gun weapons. One gun with her right hand shoots one Autobot and the other gun shooting the other ‘Bot with her left. The two Autobots, one female, the other, male, fall to the ground in charring smoke.
“YOU'LL DIE AS YOU DESERVE TO!” Amoraliss tucks her head between her shoulders before completely transforming to separate into the five independent robots afterwards. - - Straitway closes in straight for Maulturret and the Beasticons. In haste, the Beasticons immediately form back into the giant, Amoraliss. - - Meanwhile, Maulturret goes after more Autobots that he finds are trying to escape.
Straitway fires at the giant AND Maulturret. Luckily, the laser shots missed Maulturret, but two speeding missiles directly hit Amoraliss before she brings out her twin Uzi weapons to counteract. She goes falling down like a toppling skyscraper.
The city leader circles back again to FINISH off the grounded Amoraliss. Maulturret is the only Decepticon to defend his downed, giant partner.
With Amoraliss and Maulturret’s demise at her hands, Straitway dives in at them for the score. Maulturret, having the proportional strength of fallen Autobot: Brawn from years past, the Decepticon captain picks Amoraliss’ body up from the ground by one of her legs and swings her like a fly swatter to knock Straitway as she dives.

- -He misses the swing!!- -
Maulturret whiffs out, as if a baseball batter has just “struck-out”. With care, he lets the giant robot down by continuing his rotation until he levels and eases Amoraliss back towards the ground safely.
Straitway circles back around and lets off a barrage of an attack, almost sparing no expense of ammunition. Some of the other Decepticons were mindful to watch Maulturret’s metal hide. They carefully aimed lasers cancelled out Straitway’s barrage…and saves both Maulturret and Amoraliss’ chassis. Outside of his normal character, Maulturret responds with a thankful, bulky thumb-up with his left hand to his fellow Decepticons.


With her previous attack deterred, Straitway shortly afterwards emits her flamethrowers and creates a huge wall of flames. The burning flames separated the supportive ‘Bots along with the escaping Autobots from the rest of the Decepticons. This was an extra measure Straitway had to take since Maulturret and Amoraliss survived her last attacks.


Minutes pass by and Straitway makes sure that ALL the other Autobots, including the new allies, have all escaped. Straitway now is thinking through her cerebral processor, “Okay. - - It’s been done.” She flies over to where most of the Decepticons were on the ground. The lowly minions were too afraid to face her in the sky, in fear of being shot down. That ‘Bot has too much firepower on her! They continue to try to shoot her down from the sky from the ground below just to be on the safe side. Megatron was the only Decepticon to face Straitway into the air…and HE was unable to nail her. That fact alone discouraged the Decepticons to even TRY to match her in air-to-air combat.


Soon, Straitway, the sole Autobot in air supremacy, starts to run out of Energon. The Decepticons couldn’t hit her in the air; they might have a better chance catching her on the ground…
…As a last-minute distraction, Straitway places herself in a noble sacrifice just to let all the other Autobots evacuate the fortress.

A yellow military armed Bearcat G2 vehicle approaches Maulturret. Artillertron transforms to size up the scene after Straitway transforms and bounds herself to the terrain. Amoraliss and Maulturret are recovering when Artillertron checks in on them.
“Maulturret, guard Amoraliss! Just in case the Autobot tries something again.”
After a good, hard effort for defensive survival, Maulturret complies.
Artillertron heads back to join the other Decepticons to surround their common enemy.


“You, Autobot! Where are the other Autobots headed to?!” Megatron demanded.
Straitway with her back against a secured entrance to the fortress stood silent refusing to tell Megatron anything. The surrounding Decepticons all step in closer toward her. Megatron also interrogates her about Prime’s whereabouts.
Straitway resists every question Megatron throws at her.


THEN…the Decepticons reveal an ace-in-the-hole. There has been a mole working alongside Soundwave behind their entire mission; since the start of the secret Earth surveillance after the great global purging. - - Straitway looks at the Autobot walking from behind Six-Shot, and is totally a gasp. Her trusted supporting officer greets her by saying, “Hey there! Hello. It’s nice seeing you in this disposition, Straitway.”
“…Espina?!...how COULD YOU?!!”
Something was indeed afoot when the Decepticons invaded Earth.
Espina, the Autobot/Human relations diplomat, had been by Straitway’s side. She and Straitway were among the fresh Autobots who protected the Earth since the Autobots have ridden the planet of the Decepticons some odd years ago.
:RUBSIGN: :BOT: Not only has Espina been worked with the Autobots and the Earth’s nation’s security, she also worked with the Earth’s military to be ever vigilant of keeping any Decepticon attack from ever coming to Earth again.
She has worked closely with Launchute, her partner, Kamouflare and also Brandcall. Together, they kept any human organized terrorist factions from causing chaos from within the globe.
:RUBSIGN: :CON: But, Espina has also been a part of seizing military secrets and sending them to the likes of Shadowblaze, Reflector and Ratbat. While bearing the Autobot insignia, she aids in sending beacon signals to where the Autobots were; in this case, the Central Plateau of Mexico. The Decepticons would know where any Autobot protected sector would be located on Earth.
Although Espina kept track of those things, she couldn’t keep track of one thing;…Spoiler!



Espina could have thought Prime’s transmission with the base could have been transmitted from ANYWHERE. Perhaps somewhere ELSE hidden on Earth. While the battle was at wage, Espina could not risk blowing her cover contacting Decepticons informing them that Prime was not here at the base.

When with the Autobot medic, Remedios, Espina was with her to find out where certain gunfire was coming from. Espina knew to be partners with Remedios for she knew Remedios was strictly a medic; she carries no weapons. Espina herself also carries no weapons, for she is a peacekeeper between Autobots and humans…or so the Autobots thought. She has even taken care of the human companions on base along with Ether. During the chaotic gun blasts, Remedios and Espina run toward horrific sounds to see if someone might be hurt. That way Remedios would carry any possible wounded Autobots or humans they find to safety. Remedios was content having Espina around with her especially at that time of need; she would have needed a partner to carry any injured comrades aboard her as an ambulance.

At that time, the small, hot pink Audi racecar, Databot: Spoiler, manages to find the two…reminding them they have no weapons. The two of them should not place themselves in danger during an evacuation.
“We can just get emergency weapons from that other hallway before we reach the site!” Remedios sternly argues.
“‘No time for that! Just follow me!” insists Spoiler.
Espina then turned to Remedios and then back to Spoiler to say, “Follow you where?”
“Just come follow, you…or do I have to say it again!”
Espina has learned some of Spoiler’s abilities. She knew if she would have followed Spoiler to wherever she didn’t tell her to follow her to, Espina’s true allegiance would have been discovered.
Prior to the attack, Spoiler’s role was to block any non-Autobot network to detect where Optimus Prime’s communication with Blaster came from. Here’s the ‘kicker’… Espina herself is no Autobot. If anything or out of anyone, Spoiler would be the ‘Bot to expose Espina sooner or later depending on when the time would count.
The Decepticon spy would be wise enough to know at a time of Autobot crisis, she would be surrounded with nothing but Autobots (and a few small and tiny human germs.) It would have meant imminent doom for Espina if she were to remain with the Autobots. Besides, this battle here was now going to the Decepticons since Megatron’s appearance to the stage. No use playing pretend with the ‘Bots any longer.

After Spoiler transformed to her racecar form, “Don’t worry, Remedios. I’ll go retrieve the emergency weapons and take care of things. You ladies go ahead,” Espina opts to part out of company.
“You shouldn’t without me!” Remedios claims boldly.
“Between the two of us, I am more the warrior, Remedios. It is better for YOU to be safe. Please,…go with Spoiler.”
Remedios took Espina’s words to be best. She considered what she had said, for out of the both of them, Remedios was the medical chief. In agreement, she goes with Spoiler.

Espina then floats off with wisps of wind as a tan-colored hovercraft while the gun shots have then stopped. Shortly after, an alarm sounds. She entered the red-lit hallway where the alarm replaced the sound of shooting noises. She had hoped to see fellow Decepticons there to either assist or hold back in safety in case any other Autobots were to be around to feign innocence. With the emergency weapons she has seized from the aforementioned hallway, she made her path out of the chamber where Novasonic blasted the breaching whole.

~She escapes to safety to reach one of Megatron’s generals.~

Megatron may definitely use her services in future missions. Espina is way too valuable of a Decepticon to be lost. Her safety must be ensured with the others.


~Present time~

Megatron, looking angrily at the last true remaining Autobot, was quick to repeat himself after Espina’s shocking revelation.
--“Autobot City Commander: Straitway. I ask you again, Where is he?” referring to Optimus.
--“Megatron, he’s in the depths of your deepest nightmares!”
Megatron then yells out and commands, “ESPINAAAA…FINISH HER!!!!!” as he transforms into his Walther P38 style gun weapon.
-Megatron in gun form lands in Espina’s hands.
-Espina slowly raises Megatron as a gun while giving out a condemning smirk. As she levels her right arm up parallel to the ground to point at Straitway, the Earth’s sun gives the gun barrel a shimmering sparkle.

No matter the perilous situation, Straitway becomes ready to defend herself. - - She gets ready to fire at Espina AND Megatron.
All of the female Decepticons who were present fire repeatedly at Straitway. Straitway’s defense armor keeps her life intact. The eleven enemies’ fire only managed to get her down to one knee. With determination, she slowly rises back up. (*Hint: The five Beasticons were down.)
Then…all of the male Decepticons shoot her with one laser shot each. Still, THAT did not even seem to bring the titan-willed Autobot commander to the ground. They only manage to destabilize her balance from standing straight. (*Hint: Maulturret was recovering, keeping guard of Amoraliss.)
While Straitway struggles to stand all the way upright, Espina has Megatron in hand already directly aimed for her. A single blast from the Walther P38 deals the final blow. Straitway goes down in a crackling, static blaze. She falls forth onto the ground. There where she stood with her back against one of the fortress city walls.
The triple-changing Megatron transforms back into robot form releasing himself from Espina’s right hand. Espina and the other Decepticons start to fly off from the site.
[Megatron]: “Decepticons! Commandeer that shuttle at the back of their base!”
Straitway’s body is on the ground…lifeless. Her body structure now in unstable condition. Right when Megatron flies off to the fortress hangar, Straitway’s body then blows apart…



By this time, Cliffjumper has lead Ether, Mixsound, Amtract, Ember and the human companions to the underground escape route. Goldbug helped Delta-Fervor usher the Autobots into a cellar in a secret chamber Delta-Fervor himself never knew of. The chamber leads into a tunnel where the six Trainbots in a connected line were waiting to be boarded.

Braveshot knew where to go to on his own; since he is a Databot who helps Mixsound with a lot that goes on in the base…
Allyson and Denzel are aboard Amtract in locomotive form. Tracer is seating both the children, Braden and Jonah, in his yellow Audi racecar form. Abraham Lee and DeAndre’ are both racing their way toward the tunnel inside the Mitsubishi EVO X racecar Databot, Ember.
Audiocrash joins in. He sees Spoiler with Remedios also catching up.
“Remedios! Spoiler! Was Espina anywhere with you?!” warns Audiocrash.

: “She just wouldn’t come with us.”
[Remedios]: “We’ve got to go back for her! We can NOT leave here ye…”
[Audiocrash]: “Oh yes we can! Spoiler… you weren’t able to tell yet, could ya’?”
: “Whoa… couldn’t tell WHAT?”
Audiocrash fills them in on what he heard outside of the base just moments ago with Espina while the three of them rush together to the tunnel.

Springer, Pike-Up, Downshifter and his Wrecker team now catch up. The majority of the Autobots of the Earth’s defense unit were not hesitant for exiting the sieged base.
The allies who aided the Autobots on base in battle were sincerely thanked with the deepest of gratitude.
During the exodus, Springer couldn’t help but to be curious. He asked a Random allied ‘Bot, who clearly bore an Autobot symbol, “You guys came in a ship! Why escape the base with us?”
The ‘Bot named “Nocturn”, in his all-black paintjob explained, “We left a…surprise for the Decepticons outside.”
Downshifter added to Springer and asked, “All ‘you guys seem like you’re well trained. Why did Delta order ALL OF US to leave the base?” Torqueshift and Vaportrail were discussing amongst themselves on why Springer never bothered asking where their allies flew in from as of yet. Sundown is observing the conversation, now thankful that these allies came in the first place.


Above ground, the Decepticons locate the Autobot invaders’ space cruiser. Six-Shot lead a crew of his subordinates to the cruiser. Megatron, Artillertron and others have gone inside the base to lay waste of everything inside except for things that Soundwave and Megatron can find useful.

Six-Shot’s band head toward the Autobot cruiser at the fortress hanger. Espina then says out to Six-Shot, “Why would those Autobots just leave their shuttle here ripe for us to take?”
Upon hearing this, Six-Shot then sends Flightfright to check out the cruiser.
Flightfright goes into the cruiser’s rear bay. He then sees a device to his left as he enters. A light on the device glows red and a loud beeping noise followed. Immediately, other devices inside the bay go off.
[Flightfright]: “Everybody, CLEAR OUT!”
Flightfright gives out the warning, flies out of the cruiser bay, transforms into a Seeker Jet and scrambles out of there. The rest of the Decepticons under Six-Shot’s command also flee. A series of explosions follow and the armed cruiser, thought to be a passenger shuttle, is completely destroyed and is of no use to the ‘Cons.
[Tripper]: “W---welp. There goes a perfectly good and armed ‘shuttle’!” Despite his incompetent disposition, he was the only Decepticon who wasn’t fooled. Those weirdos' ship was indeed armed!

Meanwhile, the Decepticons inside the base disarm the section where the alert system is set off; with Espina’s help when she joins in of course. Trickslip, Novasonic and Espina herself then direct the other ‘Cons to where Teletraan IV is.
Soundwave calls out Rumble and Frenzy to bash their way through the two steel barriers in the way between them and Teletraan.
When both the steel barriers gave way, Soundwave hacked into Teletraan…only to find that the ENTIRE computer is devoid of any software or operating system.


The weaponized space cruiser, now Teletraan.

Regarding these cases, the Decepticons were at a loss.
”Decepticons, our mission is over for now. Six-Shot, Artillertron, stay here on Earth with a select choice of soldiers from your teams to stalk down those Autobots wherever they have gone and help Shadowblaze keep things secured. Soundwave, do whatever you can do to watch over things from anywhere you’d like. The rest of you…ON TO CYBERTRON.”


As the Trainbots depart, the Autobots lament in the destruction of their city. More importantly, they mourn the loss of their selfless city leader.
Pike-Up, third in command of the city fortress (after Delta-Fervor) seems deeply moved at this and Sundown knew so. He already knew he wanted to seat next to Pike-Up knowing how he must be feeling inside.
“Pike-Up, I’m sorry.” Vaportrail places a hand on his superior officer’s right front bumper of a shoulder as he sits down. Sundown looks at Pike-Up and Vaportrail. Already seated to Pike-Up’s left side, Sundown hides his emotions, but he could not help but understand how Pike-Up felt as well.

The six trains in the subterranean tunnel continue to chug away with all surviving Autobots accounted for.

Straitway showed true valor to her Autobots under her guard and command. News of this will soon reach Optimus, even though Straitway told him that this was a part of her plan. He would indeed be proud for Straitway’s noble sacrifice for the Autobot cause that is yet to be concluded.
