Universe: United (G1/Classics Based with influences from Unicron Trilogy, Movieverse, Animated, Timelines, and the Aligned Continuity) History: In the year 2009, a large starship called the Nemesis crash landed on Mars. It contained several evil robots, the Decepticons. They had meant to land on Earth but their engines failed. They created a space bridge and traveled to Earth, attacking power plants, and stole energy. Only a day later, a small shuttle carrying a small squad of Autobots landed and they fought back the Decepticons for now, though who knows how long they'll stay away. The Autobots are considered heroes, and a combined human and Autobot taskforce called N.E.S.T. has been set up. The Autobots have also made friends with the town in which they saved and are currently located in. In 2010, the Decepticons began gearing up once again. The Decepticons performed a scouting mission, but the Autobots found out and chased them out of the town, but not before the Decepticons had captured Drift in the process. Drift was able to escape from the Decepticons, along with doing some damage to Barricade and Megatron. At the same time, a Transformer named Lockdown appeared and was chased by the police until he was cornered by three police cars. The police attempted to arrest him when they realised that he was Transformer, and not a friendly one as he destroyed one of the police cars, and badly injured one of the higher ups, an attractive 27 year-old named Laura Walker, the older sister of Matt Walker, one of the soldiers who worked with the NEST Alliance. Lockdown then proceeded to be chased by an Autobot named Jetfire, and through the course of their fight, a bomb was dropped, blowing up a large part of the city. Lockdown dissappeared however, and the Autobots were blamed for the attacks. The United States army came to arrest the Autobots, but with help from their new teenage allies, Sara, Chad, Paul, and Aaron, along with a distraction by Matt, the Autobots escaped. The Autobots base camp was now in a clearing in the middle of a large forest near the city. Matt Walker had been taken into custody by the army, and freeing him was near the top of the Autobot priority list as is finding Lockdown. The Decepticons on the other hand were nearing the time to begin a series of global strikes, beginning with attack San Deigo just in time for the SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con), when the city is at it's peak population level. An autobot shuttle crash landed, and was investigated by the U.S. Navy and members of the Autobot Car Team. Combined efforts of the Car Team and the shuttle team fought back an attack by the Decepticons on San Diego. The Decepticons repeatedly blew up parts of the city, and the Autobots were barely able to keep them back. And that was when the U.S. Army came. They had jets, tanks, helicoptors, hummers, humvees, jeeps, guns, soldiers, everything. They attacked both the Autobots and the Decepticons, heavily damaging them. The Autobots and Decepticons began to retreat, but not before Optimus and Megatron both got captured by the Army. The Autobots regrouped, and after repairing themselves, prepared to seperate into four groups to try and clear their names, and save the world, Optimus and Matt. The Decepticons on the other hand reactivated 20 soldiers. Over the next several months, the Autobots were able to rescue Optimus and Matt, clear their names, and send the Decepticons running. Autobots rotated, some staying, some arriving, and other leaving to return to Cybertron. The Decepticon once again began preparing for an attack, but this time it was different. All the Decepticons except Skywarp left the base...where did they go? To the one place where they could strike fear into the whole world. Washington D.C. Prelude: I am Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots and the joint Autobot/Human taskforce. We have been on this planet for two years. In this time, I have seen great compassion, and an equally great amount of fear. When we needed their help in beliving us and giving us a home, they gave it, slowly at first, but they gave it. A truck horn blared as the sound of sirens ring all around it. But now, they need us more than ever. We detected a massive surge of energon in the area around Washington D.C., and that could only mean one thing. Decepticons, a lot of them. Inside a helicoptor, Matt Walker shouted at the others, trying to be louder than the noise, "Tai, Aly, everyone, this could quite possibly be the largest battle we have ever been in." Pulling off the communicator from his chest holder, he asked, "Commander White, are you all set?" A female voice came across, "N.E.S.T. Naval Carrier, U.S.S. George Washington has just received clearance, we are nearly in range for off-shore firing and medvac." "Great!" N.E.S.T has been reestablished, in full force. So far, we have not received any active Decepticon signals, which meant they were in vehicle mode. Optimus turned the corner. "Prowl, get to the side." The police car in front of him slid to the left, as Optimus increased his speed. "Jetfire, Air Raid, Springer, is everyone evacuated?" Jetfire replied over the communicator, "Yes, sir!" The back of Optimus' trailer fell down into a ramp, and a red car flew out at high speed, landing and spinning to face forward. A red Autobot came to the end of the trailer, and shouted, "Don't -BLAM- get too -WHAM!- gung-ho, Cliffjumper!" "Without you, Warpath? Ha!" Warpath jumped out of the back of the trailer, and spun, transforming in mid-air to his tank mode. As the others turned left toward the National Mall, Optimus kept going straight. He only drove about halfway down the street when he stopped and disengaged the trailer. He then shifted into gear, speeding down the road. At the National Mall, six green construction vehicles drove down the road, three on each side of the grass. Above, a squadron of three jets, one white, one blue, and one purple, flew by. Suddenly blue portals opened all over the National Mall, including one large one in the center. Out of each small one came two Decepticon drones, and out of the large one came multiple large Decepticons: Megatron, Shockwave, and Soundwave. Soundwave put a hand up to his chest, and pressed down five times on a button, that caused his chest to open, "Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Ravage, Frenzy, Rumble eject, Operation: Decimation." Megatron only smiled, and shouted, "Constructicons, combine to form Devastator!" The six construction vehicles drove onto the grass, and transformed into the eighty-foot tall Decepticon known as Devastator. Megatron pointed at the Washington Monument, "Destroy this pathetic nation's monuments." The green robot began stomping toward the monument nearly seven times his size. Shockwave waved his arm in a swiping motion ordering, "Decepticon drones, destroy the city." The three jets turned about to bomb the Capitol Building, when a space shuttle, a fighter jet and a green helicoptor burst from the other side of it. The purple jet, Blitzwing, "Lez's deszroy zhem, Starscream!" "Right, Thundercracker, close in!" The Autobot cars and tank came around the corner, and drove straight onto the National Mall. Prowl and Cliffjumper shouted, "Stealth Force, engage!" Tons of small guns came out of Prowl's vehicle mode, while three large cannons came out of Cliffjumper. Warpath laughed, "You -KABOOM- cars, and your -ZOWEE- Stealth Force!" They began firing at the various drones. Optimus burst out of a side street, transforming to his robot mode, and tackling Megatron and Shockwave. Drones spilled off the National Mall and ran out into the city, blasting and slicing vehicles and buildings, as more countinued to come out of portals. Matt looked out the helicoptor viewport as they flew over the Lincoln Memorial, "Holy..." He shouted into his communicator, "Terra, launch all fighters now." Turning to the other members on the helicoptor, he shouted, "Everyone, bail!" The side of the helicoptor opened, and Matt watched as the soldier's jumped out, activating their new prototype suits with glider attachments. All the N.E.S.T. soldiers had special armor suits with built-in glider/jet-packs, blaster-resistent armor, and holders for their special guns and grenades. Matt jumped out after them, just as a drone fired a missile at the helicoptor. It exploded, launching Matt toward the ground at high speed. He activated the glider, and large metal glider wings slid out, allowing him to glide safely toward the ground. Optimus punched Shockwave into the ground and twirled into Megatron. "You shall fall!"
