The Autobot guard shakes his head.
"No," he declines.
"You're seriously asking your guards if you can have a weapon?" the Decepticon guard comments.
The tower just so happened to be the control room, in which Salvo and Delta would encounter Driftburn
Topside and the scientists follow.
"Seems like an obvious place to start," Topside comments.
Around the forge, Song could see tracks indicating that various parties of cybertronians had previously traveled here in vehicle mode. Of the cube, however, there was no sign.
Shatterpoint, Shockwave, and Lurch had arrived on a different side of the facility. Shockwave and the Decepticon captain looked as stoic as ever, while Lurch seemed rather eager to get into a fight.

In the main chamber of the forge, all within stand for a moment in an awkward silence. Thrift arrives on the scene, presumably with Laslow not far behind. Facelift stands in the center of the chamber, looking between the varying parties present in the room. In the background, many of the pilgrims were still at work on Nova's armor, and two had taken the hot spot cube to an intricate device on the other side of the chamber.
"...Can I get back to work now?" Facelift asks. "I mean, unless you guys actually have a way to bring Nova Prime back to life, I suppose I don't see the harm in putting together a shell for ya. A waste of some good parts, maybe, but last I checked, raising the dead was beyond the capabilities of mere mortal bots such as ourselves."
Back below the spaceport, Forcep looks around at Blight and Juliana, then up at Salvation .
" 'A symbol of peace and a re-united Cybertron'," he quotes. "And we slap a three mile-long gun to its nose. I don't know whether to take that as tragically ironic or just depressing."
