This is a story on a concept that I had when I was much younger. I saw Megatron get bigger and stronger and thought, why not Starscream. I took several Go Bots and adapted them to the story along with a robotech plane (see sig) This is my first try so be kind and enjoy ***** Chapter One The thought of such betrayal burned within his circuits. That was the only way to get leadership. It took him from the early conquests on Cybertron to dropping Megatron’s almost dead frame off of Astrotrain. When Starscream saw Galvatron for the first time and he transformed into the large cannon and fired. He thought for sure that it would be the last he ever saw. It wasn’t however, when the Decepticons were hunting down the traitor Octane for joining the Autobots (the Autobots???) he saw one that he could use to his advantage. Perhaps Galvatron’s fusion blast was not as thorough as he thought. He will be made to pay for his mistake. And so it goes, he floated from Cyclonus to one of Scourge’s Sweeps to see the state of Decepticon affairs and await an opportunity for revenge. It came in a most likely form…the head of Unicron which was now orbiting the Planet Cybertron in a strange way replacing one of the two moons that the Planet Devourer consumed and created the instrument of his own destruction. Unicron had three demands, with the third being to attach Unicron’s head to Cybertron so that the monster can come alive again. Starscream saw his opportunity. “I CAN’T attach you, I do not have a physical body!!!” “VERY WELL, I WILL GRANT YOU THIS….JUST CONNECT ME….HURRY!!!” With that two crimson beams protruded from the newly acquired eyes of Unicron coalescing the spirit of the former Decepticon Aerospace Commander into physical form. “At Last!!!!” exclaimed Starscream, “At last, I am whole again!!!!” “I HAVE DONE MY PART NOW FUFILL OUR AGREEMENT AND ATTACH MY HEAD TO CYBERTRON” “Do it yourself!!!” showing that treachery is still Starscream’s strong suit. Then again crimson beams erupted from Unicron’s head, this time sending the treacherous seeker spinning out of control across the galaxy. A group of Decepticons led by Galvatron was approaching the scene where Unicron’s supposed rebirth was to take place “I didn’t know that ghosts can fly out of control” stated one of the Sweeps “They can’t” replied the Decepticon Leader, “Decepticons destroy Starscream” Hearing the command Starscream figured he had better get control of himself quick. He transformed into his F-15 Eagle Jet mode and started firing his thrusters and retro rockets to establish control of his flight path. All of this while under fire from the Decepticon Armada. All of this brought and exhilaration that Starscream has not felt in a very long time. Shifting his arms to his fuselage pulling his feet together and flipping his wings. “Excellent” he whispered. With that he took off, now that he is in jet mode he is still the best flyer of the Decepticons and he made a run for it, heading to an asteroid belt in Cybertron’s system. The Decepticons, of course followed. Bobbing and weaving throughout the belt, Starscream found himself behind a sweep, not Scourge, but it will have to do. He fired his Null Rays on the hovercraft, which took out the protective field that these Unicron bred Decepticons had and followed it up with a volley of cluster bombs. Not one of the Decepticon’s smartest moves the ensuing fireball told Galvatron exactly where he was. “Die Traitor!!!” Galvatron screamed firing fusion blasts at the F-15 missing on some shots hitting on others. “Wow”, Starscream had actually said aloud. He was still whole after the blast, or almost whole Galvatron was still the most powerful Decepticon, but it seems that his power was diminished somehow. He still knew one thing he had to get the slag out of there right now!!!! He resumed his retreat from the Decepticons, but the foolish move that Starscream made is coming back to haunt him--in spades!! Cyclonus, Scourge and the others were joining the pursuit once again, firing on Starscream. Starscream’s euphoria of having been recreated was retreating into memory as the seeker was starting to lose consciousness. * * * * * * * Galvatron was infuriated that this mistake in his previous life as Megatron still functioned. He was about to correct this once and for all. To be sure, he will haul his lifeless carcass and mount it in his throne room on Charr. The communicator on his wrist chimed up, “Lord Galvatron, there is something seriously wrong on Earth” “What do I care!?!?!?!?” screamed the Decepticon Leader. “It is affecting Decepticons as well as the population, it is some kind of hate plague”. “So wha--” Galvatron stopped, thinking he could use these developments to his advantage. “Scourge have a couple of your sweeps retrieve that putrid carcass and return to Charr. The rest of you, to Earth!” * * * * * * * * “Come on Jigsaw, you want me to go on patrol again? No one comes near this place.” A blue Decepticon practically begged. “We must protect ourselves and stay alert at all times, Zig Zag. It seems our enemy, Megatron now has a more powerful form and is quite insane. If he discovers us there will be no reasoning with him this time.” “We didn’t reason with him last time. We ran for our lives” “Megatron was a part of the new product, the kind with that ability to transform and he had a large following that can garner more powerful weapons. When he came into the picture, that put our plans to take over in the scrap heap. Now get on patrol before I have Crossword reprogram you into a lifeless drone.” “Alright, alright--I’m going, >sheesh<“ the youthful Decepticon grabbed his rifle and proceeded to go on patrol. * * * * * * * * “Tic Tac, we have the latest figures in” said a primarily orange Decepticon “ and it’s not good.” “What Crossword“, replied the adjutant commander. “The source fuel for our energon conversion is practically out. We may have maybe a vorn of fuel left at the current rate of consumption.” “Terrific!” boomed a voice in the background, the commander, Staks moved forward. “What are the options?” “Surely we have to leave and fine a new place for sustenance” Crossword replied “But, the rest of the Decepticons are everywhere” :”Not everywhere” Tic Tac spoke up, “They were ousted from Cybertron about a year ago” “Yeah sure, the Autobots would be glad to see us.” Security officer Jigsaw enters the summit. “We need some sort of in, we are antiquated in our design and could not possibly blend in where we are going” Staks replied Jigsaw’s wrist radio chimed in with a panicked Zig Zag on the line “Jigsaw, we have a UFO coming in at sector 13, it looks like a flying craft with Decepticon markings” “We may have found our in” Stacks said with a smile.
