Part 1

2. Hold It Down Edit

Part 1

  • Ratchet: Commander, the effects of this Dark Energon vapor is having a disturbing effect on the bots we encounter.
  • Marrisa has sent me with you to take atmospheric samples for analysis.
  • Sideswipe: Can you guys hold it down? I was catching a little beauty stasis time.
  • Ratchet: Sideswipe, I advise you to get back to base.
  • Sideswipe: Yeah right, whatever. First I'm going to give my chassis an overhaul and look into buffing out my chrome. This vapor in the air is killing my finish.

Part 2

  • Sideswipe: You're back.
  • Ratchet: An obvious deduction. I told you to head back to base. You're interfering with my research.
  • Sideswipe: And I told you to hold it down. Your "research" sure does involve a lot of clanking, blasting, and exploding.
  • Ratchet: Hostiles in the grips of Dark Energon poisoning need to be dealt with.
  • Sideswipe: Well, you're making me hostile. All this racket is causing me stress. And stress is bad for my paint job.

Part 3

  • Sideswipe: That's it. You've raised your final ruckus. It's time I sent you back to the seniors' care center.
  • Ratchet: Oooh, that stings. But I'll let it pass, I know it's the Dark Energon talking.
  • Sideswipe: You'll be more than stung when I'm done with you. Just don't scratch the paint job you geriatric meat wagon.

3. Code Violation Edit

Part 1

  • Wisdom: Once again, your vile transgressors venture forth to bring us entertainment.
  • Marissa Faireborn: We fight for our survival, not transgression or entertainment.
  • Prowl: Do not deny it. The Quintesson is right. You have committed punishable transgressions. You have violated the Code of Interplanetary Conflict.
  • Wisdom: It seems my enforcer has seen the light of galactic reason. And, what is the punishment for those that violate the code, Prowl?
  • Prowl: Death.

Part 2

  • Prowl: In the interest of our shared history. I issue you a warning: proceed further and you will be punished.
  • Marissa Faireborn: But in what way do we violate your code?
  • Prowl: The Code of Interplanetary Conflict states clearly that it is illegal to sell or distribute Cybertronian technology.
  • Yet, that is precisely what your mission to New Quintessa entails.
  • Marissa Faireborn: Our mission was to bring shared human and Autobot technology to Cybertron to breathe life back into your homeland.
  • Prowl: Silence. You indict yourself further by repeating such lies.

Part 3

  • Prowl: You have arrived at your final destination. Your punishment will be swift and sure. Do you have any final statements?
  • Marissa Faireborn: The technology we possess is the only thing that's keeping us alive in this nightmare known as New Quintessa. We use it to save ourselves.
  • Prowl: It is too late to save yourselves.
  • Marissa Faireborn: Then we will use it to save you.

4. The Long Game Edit

Part 1

  • Starscream: Yet another glorious day amidst the magic that is New Quintessa.
  • Laughter: Hahaha. I find your exuberance to participate in our little gauntlets curious... and amusing, of course.
  • Starscream: Exuberance and resiliency are the foundations of my existence. Your delectable vapors that permeate the air only enhance these traits.
  • Laughter: Word of your conniving flattery is demonstrated with every utterance from your vocal emitter.
  • Starscream: Thank you!

Part 2

  • Starscream: A Cybertronian of great stature approaches. A Quintesson ally in the making?
  • Barricade: Your bright paint job and colorful oratory can't hide your duplicitous ways. It doesn't matter the reality; once a Starscream, always a Starscream.
  • Starscream: But friend, you bear the Decepticon insignia.
  • Barricade: Insignia's' are meaningless in this hell I find myself in. The only thing that matters is survival. I've chosen the means of my survival... as apparently, have you.

Part 3

  • Laughter: A party approaches. Perhaps you can persuade them of the benefits of the New Quintessa lifestyle. Hahahaha.
  • Starscream: It would be my pleasure to pound the virtues of Dark Energon and the Quintesson way into those that require it.
  • Barricade: You're a pathetic joke, Starscream. They use and abuse you, yet you continue to do their bidding.
  • Starscream: I may be a joke to you, but it's a joke you don't get.
  • While you battle step by step for your very survival, I play the long game. And a very long game it is.

5. Optimum Outcome Edit

Part 1

  • Optimus Prime: Quintessons, your machines test the sanity and courage of my comrades. Know this foul creatures, dread does not fill my spark, only determination to seek freedom.
  • Judgement: Oftentimes, to face one's greatest fear, you have to look no further than the closest mirror. That time for you is now.
  • Optimus Prime: Optimus...
  • Optimus Prime: ...Prime!

Part 2

  • Optimus Prime: You are possessed of the greatness and weight of the Primes. Do not waver from the pursuit of ...
  • Optimus Prime: ...Freedom? Spare me.
  • I have seen too much of our own Energon spilled by the humans you align yourself with. They do not deserve my loyalty or protection.
  • Optimus Prime: Look about you. The Darkest Hour approaches. We must unite till...
  • Optimus Prime: ...all will never be one.

Part 3

  • Optimus Prime: I have studied the accounts of your reality. Like me, your hubris was the downfall of Cybertron! Unlike me, you have yet to realize the errors of your ways.
  • Optimus Prime: My way is sacrifice for the greater good, protection of the innocent, be they Cybertronian or human.
  • Optimus Prime: Traitor! You value the humans over your own kind!
  • Optimus Prime: Wrong. I value sentient beings of all kinds.
  • Optimus Prime: I bled for these insects countless times! My spark is extinguished, and driven to the abyss.
  • It was there where I realized the truth - True victory can only come when you dismiss consequence.

6. Shackle Me Not Edit

Part 1

  • Rage: Scientist! Explain yourself. The Commander is enroute with a Prime in tow.
  • Scientist: What is your point? Many, many Primes have been summoned to New Quintessa to provide us entertainment.
  • Rage: BUT this ONE was supposedly under the control of your Vaporizer contraption mere cycles ago! Your technology is in question, your effectiveness as well!
  • Scientist: There is no need to shout. Look about you. The air is thick with Dark Energon.
  • Rage: SO?!
  • Scientist: So wait till you see its effect on my latest pet... Megatron!

Part 2

  • Megatron (ROTF): The insufferable Quintesson Scientist was right. He predicted your arrival, so here I stand, ready to inflict pain upon the bane of my existence.
  • Optimus Prime (MV1): Surely you have help. What of your minions I have seen a uniquely colored Starscream grovelling at the feet of The Quintessons.
  • Megatron (ROTF): Lord MEgatron needs no help!! The low tech flunk that's been desperately currying favor with The Quintessons is a failure here, just like the Starscream that inhabits our reality was a failure there.
  • Optimus Prime: Failure consumes you, and it will again soon enough.

Part 3

  • Optimus Prime: I have come to open dialogue with you, as a fellow Cybertronian trapped together in a situation I fear grows dangerous beyond measure.
  • Megatron (ROTF): Trapped? I am not trapped. I am merely intrigued.
  • Optimus Prime: How can you say that? Can you not survey your surroundings?
  • Megatron (ROTF): You always were myopically naive. If you truly worship your precious freedom, then free yourself! Free yourself from the shackles that bind you, be they Quintesson, Autobot...or human.
  • I have not forgotten what they subjected us to. Neither should you.
