The Transformers The Instrument of Revenge
Chapter 15 – The Next Step
The EDC warships left Earth orbit and headed into the vastness ofspace. A hybrid of human and Transformer technology, the vessels weresome seven hundred feet in length, comprised of fifteen decks andpowered by a rare form of energy known as nucleon that had beendiscovered by Autobot scientist Perceptor some years earlier. Theyquickly passed the moon and headed for the now approaching Destructiconwarship that was detected by long range satellites only hours before.Everyone’s worst fear had come true. Starscream was coming to Earth.Patiently watching from the EDC control tower on Earth, GeneralHawk and the EDC commanders could only guess as to what would happennext. The massive Destructicon battleship soon appeared on screen andthe human warships opened up with their powerful array of weapons. TheDestructicon vessel did not slow as blast after blast bounced off ofits shields. Again, the human ships fired and again the Destructiconshields protected the vessel within them.General Hawk watched in horror as the Destructicon warship wenton the offensive. The Destructicon cutting beams sliced through thehuman ships like a hot knife through butter. Within two minutes theEarth fleet was reduced to space debris. Hawk turned away from themonitor to face the other EDC leaders to decide what they would donext, what they could do next.Soundwave entered Trypticon’s nearly silent command center whereShockwave awaited him. Shockwave wasted no time informing Soundwave ofhis intentions. “I am going to assume command of the Decepticons,Soundwave, and I want you to be my second in command.” Soundwavequickly processed the remark within his complex brain. AlthoughSoundwave would never acknowledge his aspirations for leadership, theywere there and Shockwave knew it. Soundwave had earned respect fromall the Decepticons for not only his abilities in battle, but hisstraight forward attitude, his honesty and his loyalty. These werecharacteristics that were truly rare in any Decepticon. With Soundwaveat his side, Shockwave’s domination of the Decepticon leadership may besolidified.

“What about Cyclonus and Scourge?” asked Soundwave.Shockwave folded his arms. “They are of a failed regime… Areminder of what went wrong. It is time for a change. It is our timeSoundwave. Time for us to rebuild and return the Decepticon army toits former glory. I need you to stand with me.”Soundwave contemplated the possibility and quickly came to therealization that if he was to ever move up in the Decepticon ranks,this was the time. This was the perfect opportunity and it was notlong for Soundwave to make his decision.“A change of regime is favorable. You have my support andassistance…”Sitting quietly in his command chair on the bridge of OmegaSupreme, Optimus Prime contemplated what to do next. He had plenty oftime to think; the journey back to Cybertron was long. Finally, helooked to Hot Rod. “Get me Sideswipe …”Just over a minute later, Sideswipe’s face appeared across themain view screen. “I know Hot Rod has told you what is going on, but Ineed for you to know how dire the situation is Sideswipe. I want allnon essential Autobots and Cybertronians gone from the planet. Thecoming war may tear Cybertron apart itself. Fortify all positions andpower up all interplanetary weapons. This is going to be all ornothing…”Sideswipe appeared almost overwhelmed by the orders, but he wasready to act. As the Autobot Cybertronian Commander, it was his dutyto protect their homeworld at all costs. “I understand Optimus. Bythe time you get here, I promise you that everything will be ready…”The screen went black and Optimus Prime sat back in his seat to ponderhis next move. It only took several more seconds before he realized hehad one more communication to make.Led by their leader Silverbolt, the Aerialbots dropped from thehigh clouds and into the beautiful blue skies above the American stateof Nevada. “What’s the plan boss?” asked Slingshot as he moved closerto Silverbolt. “Our allies should be arriving just about now…” hereplied. The other Aerialbots were slightly confused but before theycould question Silverbolt about what he meant, several hundred human

jets swung in from behind. The EDC logo was painted across their metalplating exteriors. Again Silverbolt spoke. “We have to lure theDestructicons to Area Delta. It is there that we will make our stand…”“Do you think the humans are up for it?” asked Air Raid.A human’s voice came across the radio. “I think we can handleourselves OK…”“Is that who I think it is?” asked Slingshot.“Yeah, it’s me alright. Marissa Fairborne…”The immense squadron of human and Autobot jets moved forwardtowards the landing point of the mighty Destructicon army. They werefilled with doubts, both the humans and the Autobots. General Hawk andSilverbolt had only hours earlier worked together to devise, what theybelieved, was their best plan of attack, and the combined human andAutobot forces were ready to put that strategy into motion. They allrealized that this was do or die. There was no question that the fateof the Earth itself rested in the balance.Now fully repaired, Cyclonus and Scourge entered Trypticon’s mainhanger bay where the Decepticon army awaited them. Confusedexpressions crossed their faces as they wondered what was going on.What was this gathering and what was it all about? Why had Shockwaveasked them here? Although they were unaware as to what was happening,Cyclonus was getting a bad feeling, and was not looking forward to whatwas going to happen next.The two Decepticons moved through the gathered Decepticon crowdand could see Shockwave, with Soundwave close at his side, waiting forthem in the center of the room. Cyclonus folded his arms and looked toShockwave. “What is going on Shockwave?”Shockwave was ready to begin. “As you are well aware, the lastsix point five years under Galvatron’s rule have not produced the mostdesired results. As a matter of fact, Galvatron’s regime, of which youwere apart of, ultimately was a failure. The time has arrived for achange in the Decepticon leadership and you and Scourge cannot be amongit.”A smile crossed Scourge’s face. “And I suppose you arenominating yourself as the new commander, aye Shockwave.”
