. Har har! Anyways, BEGINNING HAPPENS.)
It was a regular day on the Autobot science vessel Aeon. The Aeon had been traveling to a distant star, with the intention of setting up a sensor array. However, an communication from Optimus Prime changed their course. A planet has sent out a distress signal, he said. Something about Decepticons, he said. The Aeon was the only ship anywhere near it, he said.
The small ship, with barely more than a skeleton crew on it, was ill equipped for combat. But, it was small, and didn't show up well on sensors, and had quite an array of sensors itself. At the very least, they could report what they saw. Well, that's what captain Airstream had said. They wouldn't even need to activate all the other crew that was in stasis pods, just a simple in and out mission. He was convinced it was a fluke. After all, low technology, regular biological life, and running low on natural resources, what could the Decepticons possibly want with this planet?
As the Aeon decelerated into the system, they saw what could only be described as a full-out invasion. The Decepticons had enough forces there to easily spot the lone Autobot ship, and no matter how fancy the helmsman tried to maneuver, there was no way that this science vessel even stood a chance. The first hit took out the entire bridge. The hundreds of hits following just whittled away at the hull. It was quite a miracle that any of the structure survived to suffer reentry.
The Decepticons left them for dead. No Cybertronian lifesigns were detected.
Four hundred years later, a rusted, skeletal hulk of...something...remained at the the bottom of a fairly large body of water. The forward sections of it crushed beyond recognition, barely anything left on the rear, and only the meagerest of solar panels remaining to power the little technology that remained functioning.
The ground shook. Not much, but enough to shake loose a power connection. The stasis pods began to shut down, for better or for worse, letting the mechanical life contained inside return to conciousness.
