Blackout didn't notice. He walked his way down the halls and into the community forge.
"I have none installed, so there is none to activate. Though perhaps such an idea would not be a bad one. Some personal modification may be in order."
"Nah. I was on Cybertron when the smaller bulks showed up. Never really cared about the change. The well still kept spitting out minicons from time to time so there wasn't anything to worry about."
"Right right. I get it."
Ramjet turned to the main console, and noticed the photo. He walked over and gave it a look. He honestly felt bad for the two. I mean, of course they had loved ones out there. Most the prisoners did. But actually seeing them, it was different.
But there was time to reflect later. Now work is to be done. He started messing with the controls, pulling up system reports and the like. The more he looked the more little features he found in this vessel. Primarily were two exploratory drones named Hugin and Munin, as well as a weapons system named Fafnir.
He tried to activate it. A low spark flashed from the control handles, and a large red message appeared on the primary monitor.
Access denied. Incorrect energy signature.
"Well scrap. I was really curious to see that one."
"And I hope we never will. After we bust outta this joint, I hope I never see another Vex again."
As they walked through the vents, multiple grates were open to a large and industrial looking chamber. Perhaps this is what they were looking for.
His actions are done without attention.
"Come on. Don't you want to get out of here? Don't you want to be free?"
"Of course I do. But just because I want something doesn't mean its going to happen."
"If you guys want to go out and get yourselves killed, be my guest. But leave me out of it."
"Everyone please calm down. We're all friends here. Can we please not fight?"
