Chapter 1 - Who's Bugging? Edit

Weapon of Mass Consumption Chapter 1

Consuming Presence Edit

Part 1

  • Megatron: Are you sure your intel is correct?
  • Soundwave: Affirmative. Laserbeak is always reliable.
  • Megatron: Then they are here?
  • Soundwave: I cannot confirm quantity. But, based on our previous encounters, I postulate that there is a presence...
  • Megatron: An Insecticon presence. A presence we shall use to our advantage.

Part 2

  • Megatron: The swaths of metallic carnage and devoured resources indicate Laserbeak was correct.
  • Soundwave: The Insecticons are a destructive nuisance.
  • Megatron: A nuisance that can turn the tide of battle in our favor. With their mind control and cloning powers at our disposal, the planet will be ours.
  • Soundwave: But we do not possess their powers.
  • Megatron: Not yet. We've been down this road before, but remember, they are Decepticons. First things first. You distract the Autobots and their so called Commander. I'll take care of "persuading" our Insecticon friend.

Part 3

  • Marissa: Prowl, has your patrol with the Commander confirmed Teletraans's suspicions?
  • Prowl: Fields of devoured vegetation? Check. Buildings and supply warehouses gnawed on? Check. Autobot allies acting suspicious and going rogue? Check.
  • Marissa: That all adds up to one thing...
  • Prowl: An Insecticon presence.

Part 4

  • Soundwave: Turn around and return to your base of face annihilation.
  • Prowl: Annihilation is pretty severe. Like a horde of locust consuming a planet?
  • Soundwave: Grasshopper would be more accurate.
  • Prowl: So Kickback is here!
  • Soundwave: I did not say that.
  • Prowl: You didn't have to.

Buggy Deja-Vu Edit

Part 1

  • Marissa Faireborn: Commander, we have a problem. Team members have gone missing.
  • Prowl: Who's missing? Any specifics?
  • Marissa Faireborn: So far, Mirage, Bumblebee... and... Optimus. Windblade was on sentry duty. She saw...
  • Windblade: The three of them walk off. I called to them. They marched ahead vacantly, as though they were programmed to be somewhere else.
  • Marissa Faireborn: Prowl, thoughts?
  • Prowl: Insecticons arrive and bots start acting strange? That spells trouble. Big Trouble. Cerebro-Shell trouble.
  • Marissa Faireborn: Cerebro-Shell?
  • Prowl: A mind control device the Insecticons like to use to make bots their minions. Like I said... Big Trouble!

Part 2

  • Megatron: Have you made any progress in discerning which Insecticon is here?
  • Soundwave: Decepticon affiliated sources have revealed a Autobots behaving erratically. Their behavior suggests they are being controlled.
  • Megatron: Bombshell was known to use the Cerebro-Shell device. Ah, but you would know that. After all, he used it on you!
  • Soundwave: I do not need reminding. But, Laserbeak has a confirmed an army of grasshopper bots consuming mass quantities or ore and energon in mines nearby.
  • Megatron: Then that would be Kickback. Those meddling bugs have shared technology before, it would not surprise me if they did so here. It is time to go cricket hunting.

Part 3

  • Mirage: Where do you think you're going?
  • Prowl: Whoa, ease up tough guy, it;'s out of character. What's got into you?
  • Mirage: You could call it common sense of the insect persuasion.
  • Prowl: I knew it, they got you again. Commander, we've been through this before. Mirage has been manipulated by an Insecticon device.
  • Mirage: Enlightened by Insecticon technology.
  • Prowl: Entomological semantics. Commander, subdue our friend so we can take care of his bug problem.

Chapter 2 - Bugging Out Edit

Weapon of Mass Consumption Chapter 2

Bee Be Bugging Edit

Part 1

  • Sideswipe: Ratchet just told me he removed something called a Cerebro-Shell from Mirage.
  • Prowl: It's a start.
  • Sideswipe: A start? What do you mean?
  • Prowl: I mean we still have two Autobots AWOL and a crazed grasshopper out there ravaging all that he sees.
  • Sideswipe: Then what are we doing sitting here? We don't need Optimus to tell us to roll out. Let's roll!

Part 2

  • Megatron: Well, it isn't my favorite Insecticon, Kickback. Welcome to New Quintessa.
  • Kickback: Spare me the pleasantries-pleasentries.
  • Megatron: Repeating words? I thought that was Shrapnel's thing.
  • Kickback: Sometimes things rub off on bots-bots.
  • Megatron: Do other things rub off? Like technology?
  • Kickback: You've seen my clones-clones?
  • Megatron: There have been rumors. There's also been rumors of mind-controlled Autobots.
  • Kickback: The Insecticon nation recruits in various ways-ways.
  • Megatron: Indeed. Indeed.

Ambush

  • Sideswipe: Get the pesticide out, we've got a bug problem.
  • Kickback: I hope you fight better than you tell jokes, Automoron-moron.
  • Sideswipe: Time for the flyswatter, Commander.
  • Kickback: Bah! Are you blind and stupid? I'm a grasshopper you idiot-idiot! Time to turn you to scrap-scrap!

Post-defeat

  • Sideswipe: Had enough, Kickback?
  • Kickback: You got lucky-lucky. Next time will be different-rent. And don't be too smug. A bug of a different nature awaits you-you. Have fun... don't get stung-stung.

Part 3

  • Bumblebee: Kickback told me to expect company. I just didn't expect it so soon... or so weak.
  • Sideswipe: Why you bugging, Bee?
  • Bumblebee: I'm a growing bot. And, growing bots need all the energon they can get. My bro-bot Kickback has the hooks ups.That's all you need to know.
  • Prowl: That and the fact Bee is being controlled by Kickback's Cerebro-Shell.
  • Sideswipe: That old thing? OK, Bee, it's time to get you back to Ratchet for some de-bugging.
  • Bumblebee: The only way I'm going with you is if Ratchet has a super-sized helping of Energon and a side order of Ore-13. I doubt he has that, so beat it.
  • Sideswipe: Beat it... beat you. Same diff, Let's do this this.

Devouring Freedom Edit

Part 1

  • Bumblebee: Whoa, what happened? My programming feels like it got a hard boot, a cold boot, and a swift kick to the tailpipe.
  • Ratchet: That's a colorful, but fairly accurate description of what's transpired. The Commander brought you to me, and I brought you to your senses... so to speak.
  • Bumblebee: Huh?
  • Ratchet: Kickback used the Insecticon's Cerebro-Shell to brainwash you. The Commander's squad brought you to me. I removed the Cerebro-Shell...
  • Bumblebee: And we're all good. Sweet!
  • Ratchet: Hardly. Kickback is still out there with advanced Insecticon tech and... and...
  • Bumblebee: And what?! Spit it out.
  • Ratchet: And, Optimus is out there... under Kickback's control.
