Bored from working to repair the Nemesis, Fasttrack decides to secretly enlist the aid of Scorponok's army of Guardminders
. Fasttrack does not tell Scorponok, reasoning that what Scorponok doesn't know won't hurt him. With so many Guardminders on the job, the Nemesis is soon back in working condition, even if it is not in the best condition it could be.
After the Nemesis is more or less repaired, Fasttrack is still bored, so he activates the nearest interface of the communications system for some prank calls. He dials a random number and, when the connection is established, he asks, "Is your refrigerator running?"
The number Fasttrack dialed turns out to be Solder's. Solder says, "Cold War
went out for a jog, if that's what you're asking. Is that you, Fasttrek? Why are you colored like Optimus Prime?" ((By now, Fasttrack's earlier coating of Cheez Whiz has mostly dripped off of him--all over the Nemesis, possibly getting into a system or two where it will cause things to go hilariously haywire later on.)) "And how did you get on this channel? This frequency is supposed to be exclusively reserved for communications to and from the Nemesis."
"Um, I'm on the Nemesis? Galvatron led us here. Well, somebody led us here, I'm not sure who--it could've been Galvatron. Skywarp and I were a little late. Or Megaplex, I should say, since Skywarp changed his name--"
"You found the Nem-- Galvatron
is back!? Let me talk to him!"
While Fasttrack is debating whether or not to annoy Solder some more before letting the Seeker speak to Galvatron, the communicator chirps. "Oh, hang on, Solder, getting another call."
Fasttrack switches over to the new signal before Solder has a chance to say anything. "Thank you for calling Destron Pizza. What is your credit card number?"
The voice on the other end of the line is pre-recorded. "--unidentified hostiles. Think... Four Autobot craft, I think, and I think six Decepticon craft--various ship classes--all adrift now, engines gone or offline. Counting the crews of all the ships, maybe a hundred Transformers in all... at least there were. I can't raise anyone else on the comm. Any Autobot or Decepticon forces receiving this transmission, please send assistance... Message repeats. This is the Autobot Drumroll, aboard Decepticon battle cruiser TFL-539-NPC-404. This vessel was participating in joint maneuvers under Autobot-Decepticon truce against unidentified hostiles. Think... Four Autobot craft, I think, and I think six Decepticon craft--"
Fasttrack listens to the message twice, then goes and finds Galvatron. "Hey, Boss, I think you might want to hear this. Oh, and Solder's on the other line."
