    Prologue

    Our home, Cybertron, is dead. Shockwave, the psychotic leader of the Decepticons infected the core of Cybertron with Dark Energon accidentally after one of his experiments went terribly wrong. The only thing is, he did nothing to fix his mistake. I travelled to the core of Cybertron in hopes of a finding a way of curing our planet, but I instead found that the core had already shut the planet down. With little hope of returning to Cybertron, I lead a brave group of Autobots to the previous unknown planet of Earth. We adapted quickly to Earth's way, and made allies with the humans because of a threat we both faced; the Decepticons. Before we traveled to Earth, Shockwave and his minions forced our ship to crash land into the moon, where a team of dedicated scientists and warriors work to repair our only means of traveling throughout the stars.

    Prowl ran furiously throughout the forest, panting as he leaped over fallen trees and large rocks. When he saw Starscream landing in front of him, he immediately stopped in his tracks, and began running towards the left.

    "Prowl to base. I repeat, Prowl to base. I have the last Omega Key!"

    Right in front of him, a green ground-bridge opened. He finally felt a sense of relief. As the figures emerged from the portal, his eyes opened. Shockwave was standing directly in front of him, along with Brawl, Barricade, and Soundwave.

    "Brawl, get the key." Shockwave commanded.

    Brawl, a ferocious Decepticon soldier immediately obeyed Shockwave's orders. He walked over to the frightened Autobot, and pried the Omega Key from Prowls shaking hands.

    "Thank you for your "cooperation", Autobot. You will not be forgotten in the Decepticon history books." Shockwave menacingly said.

    Shockwave ordered his troops back, but before he did that. He raised his AstroMag cannon and shot off a blast directly into Prowl's chest. The blast impacted Prowl immesnely, and sent him flying backwards into the air. The Autobot landed on the ground hard, and tried as much as he could to apply pressure to the wound. But as he lost more Energon, his body began to shut down.

    The Decepticon leader walked over to the badly damaged of Prowl, and looked the Autobot directly in the optics. He raised his weapon once more, and shot off a blast directly into his head.

    Prowl was dead.

    Moon Phase

    Thanks for the warm reviews. :) 

    Second chapter is now up. Hope you enjoy. Feel free to leave any critques or comments below. :) 


    Moon Phase

    "Prowl was a brave soldier. He always put the mission in front of his welfare. He was a firm believer that we Autobot's would make it back to our home planet, and that is why he set out alone to retrieve the last remaining Omega Key. Although he was not victorious, his resistance to the Decepticon's will never be forgotten. He was a true hero. It is in his honor that I will do everything I can to make sure we return to Cybertron." Ultra Magnus said.

    The Autobot's all filed down the stairs as they returned to the headquarters of the Autobot base, which was located in the deserted town of Jasper, Nevada. Ratchet resumed his normal post at the ground-bridge controls, Ironhide and Wheeljack retreated back to their private quarters, and directly in front of Ultra Magnus, stood a very curious Smokescreen.

    "So now that the Decepticons have all 4 Omega keys, what do we do?"

    "Simply put Smokescreen, we wait. The Decepticon's ship cannot withstand the full journey to Cybertron, which means that they have to use a Space-Bridge. My plan is to follow them into the portal, and pray that they don't engage war on us." Ultra Magnus responded.

    "That doesn't seem like much of a plan if you-"

    "Ultra Magnus" Ratchet interrupted Smokescreen. "Incoming transmission from Perceptor on Moon Base."

    "Patch him through." Ultra commanded.

    "Greetings, Ultra Magnus. We've finished the restoration process. The Ark's defenses are now at 100%, and we've gathered enough Energon to fuel our trip. Now all we need is an experienced driver. "

    "Great work, Perceptor. Although, I do have some bad news to report to you. The Decepticons have gained all 4 Omega keys. Our fate now rests in Shockwave's hands. We cant make a move until he does. Make sure the Arks Planetary weapons are charged up, I have a feeling we are going to need them." Ultra Magnus transmitted.



    "Soundwave, status report." Shockwave commanded.

    "The Omega keys have been secured into place to make sure that they can withstand the journey. I have already entered the coordinates of Cybertron into our ships GPS, and the Space Bridge is running at full capacity."

    "Excellent work, Soundwave. And what are the pathetic Autobot's up to?" Shockwave questioned.

    "Laserbeak reported that the Ark has been fully repaired and is ready to launch at any given moment." Soundwave reported.

    "Well that takes away our element of surprise. Either way, I want the main power redirected to the tow cables and our defense system. I want to make sure the precious Autobot leader and his soldiers are stuck in space forever." Shockwave said, with a grim tone. "Ready the Space-Bridge, the time is now."

    Soundwave immediately got to work, transmitting commands to the Decepticons stationed at the Space-Bridge control center, which is located in a remote area of the Moon. Once finishing that, he accessed the ships GPS system and set the heading for the coordinates of the Space-Bridge. The Nemesis immediately reacted, quickly gaining altitude.



    "Ultra Magnus!" Ratchet shouted. "The Nemesis is about to break through the atmosphere. We must leave now."

    "Ready the ground-bridge Ratchet."

    Within minutes the Autobot's were ready to leave, considering they've been looking forward to this for quite some time. Smokescreen, the most eager one, passed through the portal first. He was followed by combat partners Ironhide and Wheeljack, who served together in an elite group known as the "Wreckers." Ratchet went next at the request of Ultra Magnus, who was the last to cross-over.

    The Ark was the jewel ship of the Autobot's. Constructed during the War for Cybertron, it's main function is to transport hundreds of Cybertronians from one planet to another. It can house over 300 Cybertronians, and is composed of 5 decks.

    Ultra Magnus wasted no time when he arrived on the Moon. He immediately headed straight for the Bridge, where Perceptor, Ironhide, and a crew of Autobot troopers were preparing for lift-off.

    "Perceptor, how's everything going?"

    "Good so far Ultra Magnus. The only thing we need is someone who can drive this vessel!"

    "Why can't our wonderful leader drive it?" Ironhide sarcastically asked.

    "Magnus has to be ready at all times in case of an attack, which is very likely. We need somebody who has a low ranking position" Perceptor responded.

    "I can drive the Ark." The unknown Cybertronian exclaimed.

    "What is your name soldier?" Ultra Magnus asked.

    "Optimus."

    The Return (Part 1)

    The Return (Part 1)

    Optimus sat down in the captains chair of the Ark. He was a medium-sized Autobot, with a blue and red color combination. His armor was thicker than most in his rank, and he transformed into a rather large Cybertronian truck. He gripped the steering controls, and acquainted himself with the sensitivity of the controls. Optimus looked backed towards Ultra Magnus, and signaled to him that he was ready to lift off. The Autobot shifted the Ark into forward, and pushed the handle completely down. The Ark began to lift off from it's docking station, and left a cloud of blue smoke on the surface of the moon.

    The Nemesis was hot on the trail of the Ark, which was headed straight towards the now open Space-Bridge. Shockwave ordered Soundwave to raise the altitude, and get directly over the bridge of the ship, where Optimus and Ratchet were stationed. A dark cloud loomed over Optimus as he watched the bow of the Nemesis inch over the Ark.

    When Ratchet saw the Nemesis, he immediately went over to the Teleetran 1 panel and sounded the alarms. Below, Wheeljack and Ironhide rushed over to the weapons room where they met many other Autotroopers gearing up for imminent battle. Both of the Wreckers re-loaded their weapons, and put grenades in their appropriate holsters.

    Ultra Magnus rushed into the bridge of the ship, where he saw Optimus and Ratchet watching in terror as Shockwave deployed the first tow cable. Directly before the first tow cable hit the control panel, Optimus set the Ark in cruise control and locked the options in. Nothing could alter the ships course now, for better or worse. After the tow cable destroyed the control panel, it charged for Optimus, who had little time to react. He was blown out of his seat, and landed hard on the ground behind the captains chair. One of the tow cables struck his stomach, and he was leaking energon profusely. Ratchet rushed over to Optimus, and immediately assisted him. Ultra Magnus equipped his Fusion Cannon, and shot off numerous rounds towards the Decepticons as they attempted to board the ship, guarding Ratchet as he attempted to get Optimus back to working condition.



    On board the Nemesis, Shockwave was shouting orders left and right. He commanded Brawl and Barricade to infiltrate the engine room of the Ark, and he put Starscream and his Seekers in charge of destroying the Arks planetary defense systems.

    Barricade and Brawl positioned themselves on top of one of the tow cables, and waited until Soundwave deployed them. The tow cable jolted from its holsters, and crashed straight through the wall. Both of the Decepticons landed directly on the floor in front of two of the strongest wreckers, Wheeljack and Ironhide. Wheeljack reacted immediately, and raised his weapon directly in Barricades face, and Ironhide did the same. This was no challenge for Brawl, as he immediately grabbed Ironhide by the weapon and tossed him onto the ground. Both of the brutes struggled for the upper-hand and they each dug into each others processors. Meanwhile, Barricade and Wheeljack both had their weapons pointed at each other, each waiting to see who would make the first move. As Wheeljack saw Brawl gaining an advantage over Ironhide, he shot his weapon directly into Barricade's neck, decapitating him. Barricade was just another casualty of the War.

    Brawl was enraged, and saddened when he saw Barricade die. He had his anger under control for so long, but he couldn't keep it in any longer. He charged for Wheeljack, tackling him onto the ground. Brawl took Wheeljack's blade from his holster, and plunged it deep into Wheeljack's torso, making sure the Autobot could feel the pain. He did this at least 3 times before Ironhide reacted, but Brawl was still running on adrenaline. The Decepticon shot a fully charged blast from his weapon directly into Ironhide's torso, throwing him back into the wall. Brawl continued his assault on Wheeljack until he finally used his own hand to punch through Wheeljack's chest, and rip out his spark.

    To Be Continued.

    The Return (Part 2)

    The Return (Part 2)

    Within 15 minutes, the Decepticon army had inflicted heavy damages upon the Ark. Brawl and his team ravaged their way through the ship, tearing Autobot's apart while destroying all sorts of machinery. Starscream and his armada were leading the aerial fight, launching thousands of missiles towards the Ark's planetary defense weapons, all the while avoiding fire from Autobot fliers such as Jetfire and Silverbolt. Meanwhile on the Nemesis, Soundwave organized Decepticon troopers into strike teams, and sent them directly into the Ark via tow cables, which severely damaged the structural integrity of the ship.

    Shockwave, the cold and calculating leader of the Decepticons, finally made way his way into the ship. When he transformed out of his Cybertronian Jet form, he landed swiftly on the deck of the Ark. He stood in joy as he heard the Autobot troopers yelling phrases such as "Move back, it's Shockwave!" and "Call for back-up, we're gonna get torn to pieces!". In a few seconds, he began his assault. His hand immediately formed a AstroMag Cannon and he shot off various rounds towards numerous Autobots. His other hand transformed into a blade, and he sliced his way through the crowd of Autobot's finally making it down into the Ark itself.

    When he reached the 4th deck of the ship, he was greeted by an extremely weak Ironhide. The red Autobot threw what ever energy he had left into a punch that hit Shockwave directly in the face, blowing the Decepticon back into the wall. The one-eyed Decepticon retaliated, firing a blast from his weapon which impacted Ironhide in an extremely vulnerable point. The Autobot's were so distracted with following Ultra Magnus's orders, it was almost to easy to ride the elevator down to level 3, where Optimus and Ultra Magnus were standing. Shockwave, already knowing what Ultra Magnus's reaction would be, grabbed an Autobot who was distracted by the monitors and held his blade extremely close to the Autobot's neck.

    "Ultra Magnus, what a surprise it is to see you. I see you've recovered well after the unfortunate death of Prowl." Shockwave said as he tightened his grip on the Autobot.

    "Why, why are you doing this to us? All we've ever wanted was to return to our home, and now your exterminating half of our race for trying. Let us cross-over into Cybertron, and we will not bother you." Ultra Magnus pleaded.

    "I went through all of the trouble of securing the Omega-Keys, and you tried numerous times to stop me. You are a coward for doing that. I will not allow a faction of cowards to thrive on MY planet, and that starts with your friend here."

    Shockwave began to slide the blade deeper into the Autobot's throats, but within a split second he was blasted back onto the ground, and the Autobot was set free. Ultra Magnus turned around to see Optimus standing in firing position, with smoke emitting from the chamber of his weapon. They both watched and listened as Shockwave swore to them that they would never make it through the Space Bridge.
    The Decepticon leader blasted his way out of the ship, transforming as he flew back to the Nemesis. When he reached the control room of his ship, he pushed Soundwave out of the way, taking full control of the ship. He moved his cynical fingers fast, typing in passwords and by-passing security measures. He finally reached the Nemesis's weapon controls. He aimed the Nemesis's planetary weapon systems directly at the engines of the Ark, and fired.

    In an instant, the ship exploded from the center into four pieces. Ultra Magnus didn't even see it coming. He was thrown into a control panel, causing sparks to burst all over his body. The captain, Optimus, was launched into the ceiling, causing him to slam back hard into the floor, rendering him unconscious. Autobot's and Decepticons alike were tossed and turned all over the ship, some getting sucked out into space, others dying from the impact.

    Each of the 4 pieces barreled towards the Space Bridge. Shockwave attempted to fire the weapon again, but he was unsuccessful. The raw energy of the Space Bridge disabled all of the Nemesis's controls. The Nemesis was now just as vulnerable as the exploded Ark. The first section, containing the ships controls, crossed into Cybertron, followed by the rest of the Ark and the Nemesis. The gravitational pull of Cybertron diverted all of the ships into different directions, each of them slamming into the surface of the barren planet.

    The captive watched from his cell as a part of the Ark crashed into Cybertron. Flames quickly flew up, and he felt the effects of the impact shortly after. He knew this could be his chance to escape. Megatronus watched carefully as the guards and the warden left the Decepticon prison en-route to the crash-site. This was his only chance.
