The laser fire that suddenly emitted from the Autobot warship was concerning. The small ship was designed mainly for short scouting missions and not to take sustained fire from a major warcraft. The shields could handle the short controlled sprays, more like warning shots, that were being fired now, but over a long term they would wear down. Zarak was quite pleased when the ship ceased firing, obviously some indication from Time Traveller that they were wanted guests. Even more pleasant was the message that came through a moment later.
<The ant is at the picnic, lol.>
Excellent Scorponok, please hold him there until we have finished our business. If Galvatron asks about him, tell him that the ant took the shuttle and left. That will sow dissent nicely. Mindwipe, take us in to dock with that asteroid.
What if the Autobot ship starts firing on us again, My Lord?
They won't. We are expected guests after all.
The small craft drifted past the Autobot vessel that was now docking with the large warship and down towards the asteroid. There was a docking bay obvious from this distance and Mindwipe piloted the craft down to it with ease. Once the ship had been docked, Zarak made his way to the asteroid accompanied by Sixshot. He was unsure of what to expect and where to go, but he was confident that Time Traveller would want to hear what he had to say. It was, after all, in line with both of their goals.
It was good to hear that voice again, Cambreaker's voice. Blackjack didn't respond at first, just letting Rattrap and Nighteye guide them in to dock with the 'Spite. He had been confused about Time Traveller's interaction with the Decepticons but had decided not to worry about it. But when this reunion was over, he swore he'd put an end to Sixshot.
As they began to dock, he replied, Cammy? Dat you? The three of me sure are glad to hear dat voice. I don't what else to say, but welcome back.
Sure he had questions. He wanted to know why his friend had dragged them all out here to the far reaches of nowhere. He wanted to know what Cambreaker had been doing. But he understood that all things could be revealed in time. After all he'd just met the Autobot's brother up in heaven, anything seemed possible.
