    TRANSFORMERS:
    GENERATION ONE
    "Upon These Shoulders"

    Many years ago …


    The very sky itself thundered in protest as the impossibly large monstrous bulk of Unicron devoured and destroyed the children of Primus.

    They were finally united in the fires of survival. The first generation, the second generation, Pretenders, Targetmasters, Headmasters, Powermasters, even the diminutive Mircomasters were all desperately throwing themselves at an enemy beyond comprehension.

    One Transformer in particular finally found his true self, and in doing so, found the courage to –finally- do the right and good thing.

    Scorponok had been plagued by self-doubt, recrimination, and the ever preset need to look over his shoulders as Decepticon leader.

    As the mighty Optimus Prime was blown to the cosmic winds from one of Unicron’s deadly energy blasts, all of the doubt, all of the worrying, it all washed away in anger at the sight of Prime struggling to his feet to protect those around him, indeed the world in which Scorponok called home as much as any other Transformer.

    In his sights, Scorponok saw a being who fought to protect, not his own self interests and lust for power, but for the safety and welfare of others.

    Inside Scorponok, a voice that was not quite his own whispered to him.

    “Your thoughts are true. We have let so much blind us to who and what we really are. You know what we need to do.”

    With new resolve, drive, and inner strength, Scorponok flung himself from the structure he had been using as support. He moved impossibly fast towards the Dark God and his own destiny.

    *****

    Part 2: Destiny & Regress

    He flung himself at Unicron, if such a thing could be said when you decide to fight something so much –more- than what you are. He did not care. He was beyond caring. Scorponok reached one of Unicron’s feet and began tearing the most outer armor layers.

    “Rip you!” he shouted. “Tear you apart!”

    Unicron felt the smallest sensation that almost registered as pain in his gigantic brain. He looked down and saw one of the “leaders” of the Transformers attacking him in the basest of manners.

    Through the roar of battle, through the sounds of lasers, cannons, and rocket fire, this one tiny Transformer was actually succeeding in damaging Unicron. This, Unicron mused, was simply not allowed. Primus’ children were simply to exert themselves, tenderize themselves, so that they could present the most delicious meals the god had ever dined upon.

    Scorponok could have cared less.

    “Die, Unicron!” he shouted towards the cosmic winds. “Die!”

    Unicron looked down at Scorponok, returning the disgust in kind as he shouted ……

    “Burn!”

    Red and white-hot molten metal streamed down, enveloping the Decepticon leader in searing pain. His Cybertronian metal plating and skin began to melt. Even the great Scorponok was no match for the power of a god.

    Unicron turned away, stepped away from Scorponok. A feast so very delicious was only moments away.

    A powerful figure ran towards Scorponok. Optimus Prime looked down at Scorponok, taking one of his melting hands. A profound regret passed through Prime. Here was a being who had become what Optimus had hoped for in Megatron. Lost in darkness, and reborn in purpose. Strong, but compassionate. Passionate, but restrained.

    Now all Optimus Prime could see was the imminent death of a friend. Scorponok, with all of his remaining strength, lifted his head and asked …..

    “Prime …. Did I, did I do ... good?” Prime responded with all of his metal heart.

    “Yes, old friend. You did good.” With those words, Scroponok felt at peace and died.

    The war raged on, soon to thunder towards it’s explosive finale.

    Scorponok's Spark joined the Matrix, the greatest of Cybertron. Lord Zarak’s remains, however, were never found.

    Until now.

    *****

    Part 3: Rebirth

    The planet Nebulous ….

    He opened his eyes slowly. Such bright lights embraced him. Zarak wondered if he was dead. The last thing that he remembered was being in unison with Scorponok, tearing at the mad god, Unicron. A familiar voice, but not Cybertronian, guided the Nebulan back to full awareness.

    “Lord Zarak, it is good that you have finally recovered from your dire wounds. I did not know if even my considerable skills would be enough to save you.” Zarak moved his hands towards the Nebulan physician who was watching both Zarak and brightly hued instrumentation. The name came to him slowly.

    “Doctor Zan … is that you, old friend? Am I back on Nebulous?” Zarak retuned his hand to his bedside. The physician turned from the instrumentation he had been carefully studying.

    “Yes, Lord Zarak, you are back on Nebulous. To be more exact, you are in the medical pavilion of the Hive. Zarak’s eyes widened in horror. He tried to move out of the bed, but crippling pain shocked Zarak almost into unconsciousness.

    “The Hive was destroyed. I saw to that personally shortly after bonding with Scorponok. The Doctor turned away from Zarak again, this time his voice softer, less confident.

    “You and your new found Decepticon allies most certainly dealt a great and crippling blow to the Hive, but the Hive runs deeper than even you know, Lord Zarak.” Zan began manipulating dials on the ever present instrumentation.

    “Now sleep, Lord Zarak. When you wake again, we will discuss what has become of Nebulous.”

    Zarak struggled against the coming darkness, unsure if he would wake up again despite his friend’s words. The words mingled with the cold darkness.

    “What has become of Nebulous.”
