Machbreaker opens the door for Tie-Grabber, assuming he can find a way to do so. Railgun looks as though he was going to reply with something, but with Tie-Grabber here it was high time they get back on schedule. However, as he and Machbreaker go to leave Tie-Grabber stops him. It seems the crane had a few words of his own and briefly indicated to Railgun that he would be back with them shortly. While finding it odd, Railgun permitted it, given all Tie-Grabber had done today. He can have his chat while the rest of them make up for their slacking.
Once Machbreaker and Railgun are gone and off to finish up final tasks, Tie-Grabber has the tablet speaks his own thoughts.
"You don't understand. We like work, regardless if it was forced or not, but what we had was more than enslavement." The tablet pauses as Tie-Grabber thinks for a moment.
He then continues, "The brothers with me where not my first. Machbreaker was one of the loners, he never had a team. Trapped forever testing on a single track, he knew nothing else. Railgun had a different team, but we were stretched thin and they were split apart. Last heard, one was still kicking and the other was missing. But me? My first team was sacrificed for that blasted war. I barely made it out and should have never came back. And what they did to us afterwards, when we got reassigned..." Another brief pause.
"When they wanted they wiped our minds, changed our thoughts, reconfigured our forms--they did whatever they wanted with us. Teams were broken, our wills and sparks were stolen. If we were just mere slaves, perhaps our sparks would have been acknowledged. But no, we were mindless tools and weapons. And for the most unlucky of us, Powerlinx to one of you. Nothing more than a battery pack, forever chained.
Until here, we didn't have the concept of choice. We just did what we were reconfigured to do. None of us want to go back to that. It's madness that Nebula of all Minicons is willing to go into it, but she wants that better future. And if the future out there on Cybertron is to be like here, then we have no future. It will be as the days before the war, just tools to wind up and set on their tracks. Otherwise ignored until wanted again."
