Cold… so very, very c-cold…

Ca...annot… move…

S…someone… there… S-Starscream… is…is that you?

"Subject: online. Activation: 18.3 kliks."

"Good. And the Seeker?"

V-voices… Who? …Seeker?

S..Starscream…

Starscream… What… happ…ened?

There was… a… a storm…

…Storm… I lost my… bearings…

Down, down, down… plummeting… towards surface….

Screaming… me? N-no… Star… Star was… screaming…

Was he… hurt? Urgh… Cold… So, so c-cold…

"You sure this is worth it, boss? He looks kinda broken to me."

"Silence! Do not question my authority, imbecile!"

"Alrighty then, boss-bot! Uh… I mean, yessir!"

Boss…? Who…

I cannot… see… Why…?

Optical receptors… damaged in… fall, perhaps…?

Then ori..ginal sight… i-impossible until return… to Cybertron…

"Sir, he's waking up."

"Excellent… He will make a fine addition to the Decepticons!"

Waking… up?

Dim, sapphire-like optics slowly—oh so slowly—onlined. Almost immediately, they shuttered, the owner startled by the seemingly blindingly bright light above him and sharp twinge he felt upon doing so. Once he felt his optics had sufficiently adjusted, the mech online them once more. The sight that met him was one he could only have hoped to expect.

'A… search party?'

Indeed, four Transformers stood before him. Two seekers of the same model as Starscream and what appeared to be a symbiont carrier were closest to him. The final was the one who immediately caught his attention, and whom he knew to be "the boss".

None were mechs he recognized, but for the moment, he really didn't care. He was safe… and so was Starscream. There was but one problem… he couldn't tell what color the seekers were.

"Sir, he's online."

"I can see that, idiot!"

Flinching slightly, he stared in surprise as the boss snapped at one of the seekers (the closest one) for no apparent reason. "Wha…?"

That got the leader's attention. "Soundwave, shut him down. I don't want hi-"

That was all the blue-eyed mech processed before he was plunged back into oblivion.
