    Theme for the Speech

    Hello, I am Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots. Our War has ravaged across your planet and the galaxy for years, our problems had become your problems. I can never repay or forgive the things that your people had to endure, what Earth had to endure. The war is over now, and the Decepticons have been defeated, finally we shall live in peace...Though there were many brave humans and bots who gave their lives to stop the ravages of war..this is their story. This is a story about brotherhood, grief, happiness, betrayal, it's a long story, but it is one that must be told. Lest we forget and repeat the cycle of hatred that had lead to their very sacrifice. This tale begins on our homeworld, the twilight days of Cybertron...our fall from grace.

    Cyterian City, Cybertron
    Twenty Four Star Cycles in the Past
    Distant flames and explosions, the sound of sporadic blaster fire filled the audio sensors of any bot that dared to be awake during the night. War had dragged on for centuries across the homeworld of the Transformers, millions had perished under the onslaught and tyranical rule of the Decepticon leader, Megatron, and his band of ruthless Decepticon goonies. Most civilians had escaped and fled to the outerskirts of the planet, while the resistance force, the Autobots attempted to take control of the planet and to overthrow their dictators.

    The war had constantly fluctuated between both sides, with a stalemate that had gridlocked the planet, causing massive stress to the very core of the planet. It was on the brink of collapse, and resources were critically thin. Optimus Prime knew this, thus a new plan had to be put into place, one that would allow for his men and women to fight another day. With the Decepticon's recent blitzkrieg offensive, many key Autobot hideouts were falling to waist and their teams perishing. Their numbers were dwindling, they needed to get off this planet, to split off and hide across the galaxy.

    "Sir, a squad of Seekers is inbound, they're arching through the sky," Hound called out as he pointed towards the sky, where four seeker planes soared through the air in search of prey.

    Optimus made his way towards the small opening that had been blown open from a battle months earlier, with it provided sight that overlooked the decaying hotel that they had taken refuge in. "It appears a battle is on our horizon, keep a look out," the leader called out to the scout before turning to face the many young faces that dotted the hotel floor.

    "It appears our last stand may be today, I had hoped that we could hold our ground, that we didn't have to leave this planet, but it appears that was not our destiny. It is time to leave this planet and to go into hiding, many of you may never see each other again, but don't worry...this is only the start of our war..we will live again in peace one day. I believe in each and everyone of you, that is why I have a specific job for you all." Optimus paused, as the sound of a loud thud, followed by the sound of countless clanking of feet could be heard outside.

    "Optimus, there is hundred of decepticons converging onto this area!" Hound yelled as he began to fire his blaster down towards the swarm of cons.

    "Autobots, roll out!" Optimus yelled as he readied his blaster, taking out two lesser cons with simple two shots. He marched forward, dodging and weaving the attacks as the band of Autobots followed in close behind him. "We must hold this line!"

    "We must hold this line!" Optimus shouted out. A con fell to the ground with a loud thud, sparks flying from metal scraping on metal as the Autobot known as Speedlane began shooting his assault rifle. One con quickly fell while another ducked behind cover as a Decepticon heavy walked in and began firing his Ion Displacer at his location.

    "Scrap, a heavy!" He shouted as the decepticon marched forward. Speedlane looked around him. "My rifle won't do much good against that heavy. There's gotta be something around here i can use." Looking around he noticed a small little sphere shaped object. A smile appeared on his faceplate as he picked up the object. "Thank Primus. A Dimensional Decimator." He said happily. He looked at the Decepticon heavy before he began feeling something shake. Small pieces of rubble began tumbling down as the makeshift barrier Speedlane was behind was beginning to give way from the heavys onslaught.

    "Gotta make this quick!" He told himself before priming the Dimensional Decimator, throwing it at the Decepticons direction before he began dashing toward another barrier. The device activated as it tore a hole in space and time. Killing the heavy along with two other unfortunate Decepticons as they were pulled into the hole and destroyed. A few crushed pieces of them remained after the hole disappeared.

    Speedlane sighed in relief before standing back up and moving forward. More Decepticons were approaching as he approached a huge table where two other Autobots were using it as cover. He joined them behind the table before activating his assualt rifle as he began to help hold off the incoming Decepticon forces.

    "Seekers."

    The growl came out of Burstsights mouth as he glared up at the sky, turning his focus back to the area around them. He felt his Spark brighten with anger, a sudden urge filling him to take his rifle and attempt to shoot down the squad but a tiny logical whisper dissuaded him from that course of action. They were not the biggest threat in that moment and as much as it frustrated him to ignore the fliers, he forced himself to ignore the whine of their engines above and aimed his rifle at one of the closing in grounders. His first bolt impacted the Con's shoulder, the second, third and fourth bombarding where the Con's voice box should sit. As the Con fell to the ground in obvious pain and surprise, Burstsight fire off a fifth bolt that shot off half of the Con's face, leaving it as little more than a smoking pile of trash.

    "That looked like it hurt." The Autobot chuckled, turning his rifle on another Con and performing a similarly brutal execution. Then another. His attention was briefly taken by an explosion to his left and he turned his gaze towards the location, a smirk appearing on his face at the sight of the carnage. Searching the crowd for the perpetrator of the attack, he called out to his Autobot ally who was heading towards a large table with Con's swarming towards them. "Not a bad way to scrap a Con! Little fast for my liking though."

    Taking a moment to survey the situation, Burstsight realized that he needed to move from his slightly elevated position. Holstering his rifle, he activated his twin Plasma Blasters and making a mad dash for the table. Along the way he fired several shots towards various Con's near him, all of them meant to injure but not kill. It was his biggest flaw to some Autobots, that he didn't always finish a fight but instead made the Con's suffer. Leaping into the air, he landed hard atop the shoulders of a bulkier Con, placing one blaster on the Con's neck and the other aimed into it's shoulder towards it's spark. Without hesitating, he fired and the Con screamed out in pain, throwing him towards the table before falling to the ground, lifeless. Crashing into the ground near the table, Burstsight rolled to his feet with a grunt and took cover with the others. Once more activating his rifle, he shifted the weapon into it's burst variation and within seconds, he was raining down barrage after barrage upon the Con's, almost every bolt hitting it's mark but very few killing the Con's outright. Because of this, the Con's that he was firing at slowly but surely began to close in on the group.

    His optics saw the red Autobot blast those battle hungry Decepticons apart. However each shot wasn't intended to kill them, instead they were meant to make the cons suffer. Speedlane shifted his focus back to the cons that were approaching there position as he finished off the ones that weren't outright destroyed by the Autobot as he joined the others behind the table.

    (I don't really think that shoot to kill is in this bots programming) Speedlane thought to himself. More cons closed in as more of there sparks were extinguished by the small group. Looking at the newcomer, Speedlane spoke. "Thanks for the assist there." He said with a smirk. He looked back to the cons before looking at the new bot. "Wanna see who can get the most kills?"

    Another Con fell, this one crying out in agony as Burstsight destroyed the jonts holding the Con's arm to it's body, ending the Con's life with a shot between the eyes. He took a small amount of pleasure from offing another one of his sworn enemies, allowing himself to widen his eyes in satisfaction before taking aim at another Con. Dismantling the Con with a series of shots that brought cries of agony from his enemy, Burstsight glanced up at the skies with a snarl as he heard the Seekers somewhere above. Grip tightening on his weapon, his eyes snapped to the Autobot from earlier as he addressed Burstsight. Listening to the Bot's words, Burstsight chuckled.

    "A competition huh?" His gaze was drawn to movement out of the corner of his eyes. Aiming his weapon, he fired off a rare headshot and the Con collapsed to the ground as little more than scrap metal. Turning back to the Bot, tilting his head to the side curiously. "Think you can keep up?" Tearing his gaze away once more, he shot another Con's knees out, letting out a laugh as the Con fell to the ground, crawling in pain. "The name's Burstsight by the way."

    The Seekers has been spearing through the air like scrap-vultures, observing the battles and the details of their prey's amusing little crop. The foremost suddenly making a divulging maneuver, swooping into the defenders' lines. Streams of missiles flying around his wings from his partners, blasting the soldiers and debris into a rain of plasma and scrap. From the covering fire, the Seeker uprising with an Autobot snatched into talons. The cruel killers flying off from firing range.

    His Autobot catch squirming and fighting to escape. Each time he was 'dropped', the Seekers swept. Each one catching and tearing him apart before his original hunter snatched him with a taloned hand. Spinning into the air, the sadistic hunter transformed and made his landing on a high perch that oversaw the entire battle. Like many of his airborne brothers and sisters, he was massive compared to the common warrior - aerodynamic with his sharp-edged and sleek frame, face hidden under a warmask depicting the ferocious symbol of the Decepticons. He was as true to his Lord and goal as any other. Feeling the remaining arm beating at his plated arm, the Decepticon lifted the Autobot over the ledge as simple as a protoform. "Do you see, Autobot? See the destruction that you have forced with all of this stubborn defiance?"

    The electronic rattle of a scarred voxcaster purrs with the growls of twisting cogs. "Y-you monsters are causing this!" The Autobot buzzed out, swinging another punch with it caught into a palm. Talons curled, biting into the fist. Twisting. And with a savage pull, tore the limb from its socket. The sweet scream loud and clear. Moments, they watched the limb being covered in crawling steam from the Seeker's forelimb and in moments, corrode and crumble away by hyperactive rust. "Oh Primus...Y-you..."

    The Decepticon's violet photoreceptors looked at the horror dawning on the Autobot's face. "I am Steamburst and you all are dead." He whispered before plunging a couple talons into the photoreceptors, allowing his steam of to crawl and have their horrid feast. An entire soldier rusting away in his claws till only his spark remained into the palm of his killer's hand. The ebbing glow pulsating off the faceless mask and made the violet receptors gleam evermore. "The Autobot Rebellion ends today."

    Dix had hardly expected the mess that this was turning in to.

    This war had been going on for a long time, and what had seemed like a bit of a break had turned into a full fledged battle against seekers and worse. She cleared her photoreceptors of dirt as an explosion went off to her left and caused her to duck behind parts of a fallen structure that may have once been something more coherently useful. Peeking back out over the battle, she looked at a group of her comrades (@the bunch of you clumped together) fighting back rather well. Dix stood up, instinctively going to grab her rifle but remembering that she had lost it a few minutes earlier.

    Bad luck so far. Hopefully that luck ran out soon. She stood and sprinted toward that small group of fellow Autobots, pulling the pistol that she so rarely used and bringing it to bear, scanning their environment. Most notably the sky.

    "Mind if I tag along? Feelin' kinda useless back there."

    "Comrades, this is not a competition," Optimus called out to the two young bots that had taken to blasting the Decepticons in delight. "Dix fall back to Speedlane and Burstsight's positions, a few of the others have begun to prepare for our escape...I'm afraid we can't hold this position for much longer," the leader of the Autobots responded as he aimed his rifle towards two small scout cons, shooting them down before they could reach the large hotel stairs.

    "Glamrock and Burnout, do you copy?" The leader would call out through their comms.

    "About that Optimus, hehe..we're kind of caught outside," Burnout chuckled through the comms, as the sound of blaster fire could be heard in the background.

    "Primus..." Optimus muttered as his recital scanners zoomed in to see the two young bots pushing their way through a swarm of cons, as the Seekers circled above them like vultures watching dying prey.

    "Hound, you're with me, Ironhide you as well..those two bots are the key to the future of our resistance!" Optimus yelled out as he stormed down the stairs, pushing his way through several cons, as the two other Autobots began to make their way towards the entrance and swarm of the Con army.

    "Speedlane, Burst, and Dix..Fall back with the others, they tunneling our escape, we will rendevous with you soon." Optimus called out as he readied himself, glancing towards the two other veteran autobots, "Let's go!"

    They would storm through the blown entrance and into the sea of cons surrounded them, "Steamburst...show yourself and fight like a real man," Ironhide called out as he fired a series of shots into the sky, "I'll scrap you down for parts con-scum!"

    The cons red optics dimmed before shutting down. His spark chamber destroyed as his lifeless shell fell in a heap of metal. Speedlane had switched from his assault rifle to his two pistols some time ago in an effort to conserve what little ammo he had left.

    Firing his pistols, he struck one con in the shoulder while another one collapsed to the ground in pain. The cons left knee joint now nothing more then burning metal. Looking at the charging cons it seemed as if the there forces were now like a pool of purple as they continued to charge against the heroic Autobots.

    "Scrap! There's just too many of them!" He yelled out. As the Decepticon forces continued there relentless advance. He heard Optimus call out to them. Telling them to fall back with the others. Looking at the sea of Decepticon warriors that were heading straight for them. He followed Optimus's orders.

    He then looked towards his new companions before looking at where the other Autobots were heading. "Come on guys. Let's go." Looking towards the War torn ruins of Cyterian city one last time, he began heading toward the remaining Autobots.

    As Decepticon forces advanced upon the retreating Autobots, an emerald colored fightercraft descended from above. At first there was no attention paid to the new arrival. Suddenly the fighter locked onto a lone Seeker in yellow tailing behind the enemy horde, blastering with a short burst of energon shots. The seeker clipped in the wing crashed into a tower, exploding and he scattered two more away from their original prey.

    Swifty the newcomer dive down upon, letting loose a salvo of missiles into their midst, desotrying some and forcing the rest briefly for cover. Without further heistition, the flying Autobot increased thrusters and aimed for the tunnel ahead. However, many Decepticons now fired upon. Twist and turn he dodge as best as possible but it wasn’t enough. A laser bolt hit one of his engines, causing the flyer to descend rapidly

    Transforming Ace revealed his true form hit the metal ground in front of his compatriots rolling until he stopped seconds later. “Sparks!” The flier called out in pain. Despite the wound Ace got up, lifting the blaster rifle firing at the advancing Con behind the Autobots to cover to them. “Sorry I’m late! Had to lost some Seekers at the Nova district.” He said following the retreat party with a limp.
