Back at the ancient spaceport, Requiem-IX lounges about in the control room that Actaeon, Zepar, Daria, and Wildsong had found. Gearbox, the youngest of the squad, takes a sip from a bottle of engex, before setting it down upon the flat table extending from the center console the Omega Key was plugged into.

While Gearbox was talking, thin rays of blue light scan his bottle for a moment, before turning green. There is a flash as the engex suddenly disappears.
“Whoa!” Gearbox exclaims in surprise jumping away from the console. The other three Decepticons start as well, as Gearbox deploys his gun an aims it at the Omega Key.
“NO!” the twins Tossup and Shakedown exclaim as one, immediately seizing their comrade and directing the barrel of the rifle away from the important artifact.
“It stole my booze!” Gearbox protests.
