Universal Stream: Athren 1010.27 Iota Universe Title: Nova Universe Backstory: Transformers. They are large sentient robots that can shift their bodies into various forms, ranging from cars to jets, and even into weapons for others to hold. Their home planet, Cybertron, had known peace for many millennia. Then Megatron rose to power. He declared himself a Decepticon, saying that the way the Autobots and the Ruling Council of Cybertron were controlling the planet was unjust, and he was determined to make the planet what he thought it should be. A race that conquered other planets. Megatron wanted to make an empire, and rule it as he saw fit. He gathered an army, and followers loyal to him, and he hit Cybertron like a firestorm. The Autobots slowly reacted, raising their own army, led by the new Autobot Commander, Optimus Prime. He rallied forces with the words, ’Freedom is the right of all sentient beings.’ Many agreed. Several centuries later, the war between the Autobots and Decepticons still rages on throughout the universe. Not a single Cybertronian has been left unaffected. Most civilians have either fled Cybertron in search of a peaceful planet they can call home, or have picked up weapons and joined one faction or another on the various fronts of the war. Cybertron, Velocitron, even the planet Earth, the list of planets feeling the effects of the Cybertronian war goes on and on. Season 1: Episode One: “Echoes” Written By: Galvanitro Prologue: October 9th, 2010 6:30 A.M. Birds chirped loudly, as the sun began to rise. A robot stood at the edge of a forest, looking down into a city. He was nearly twenty feet tall, colored predominantly in silver, with blue and some orange, and carried two laser guns. His name was Blurr, and he was commander of one of the many teams of Autobots. His team was the EDT or Earth Defense Team. They were the only major team stationed on Earth at the moment, while Optimus Prime drew the Decepticons out into space. At least they were the only team Blurr knew of, if there were any others, it was a secret or they were loners. The war had been going on for quite some time now, and stretched across the universe. Many planets were caught up in the war, and several alien races had grown resentful to the Autobots and Decepticons. Luckily on Earth, very few, if any, humans knew about them. Blurr sighed. His team was out patrolling for Decepticons. They were currently in Alpine Hills, New York, United States. Very pretty place in Blurr’s opinion. He smiled, and walked down the side of the hill. It was still moderately dark, so no one saw him as he walked onto a road, and transformed into his car mode. He called into his communicator, “Meet me at Ridgeview Park, except you, Cheetor. But you knew that. Here are the coordinates.” There were some laughs. His team consisted of: Cheetor, a rookie who turned into a cheetah, Mirage, a veteran who turned into a car, and lastly, Hot Shot, a brand-new rookie fresh from training, who also turned into a car. There were other team members, but they were in other areas of the US and the Earth in general, with a couple on leave as well. Blurr activated his human facsimile hologram, and started his engines, bursting down the road, barely staying within the speed limit. No Decepticons, just plenty of training, racing, and generally having fun…this was the life. Nothing could possibly change that, could it?
