From Transformers: Lost and Found

2018-03-15 Press Conference

Ignition of Crystal City, Commanding the Lost Light, invited reporters to a digital podium from which she gave a press statement this morning assuring listeners that although she and her forces will be joining with a larger Cybertronian force in order to strike back at Unicronian aggression, it is an impermanent condition, and that at no point has she abandoned the principles that led her to take command of the Lost Light in the first place.

Though some critics have been skeptical of the idea of a Cybertronian task force fighting back against Unicron since galactic news has largely been reporting that the threat is a Cybertronian issue in the first place, Ignition seemed collected and passionate in defense of her troops and clarified on the record that "it is a simple courtesy when conducting a joint assault to cede organizational command to the leader of the larger force. Whatever political concerns I, or the Galactic Council, may have for the future, the true threat in this question is and has always been Unicron. I will be proud to lead my fellow Cybertronians to the fray, without regard to religion or faction, and while Megatron and I have occasion to agree on little, in this matter we are absolutely of an accord."

To the final question of the morning, Ignition stated:

"We will save this galaxy so that all of us may worry about tomorrow's concerns tomorrow. It is my sincere desire that all of you will have the opportunity to ask me these questions again. That, gentlepersons, is why I fight."

Fortress Maximus,

Please record an official reprimand on the record of crewmech Dead End to today's date and assign a minimum of 10 hours of rivet duty.

Even off duty, I will not tolerate my officers being spoken to in such a fashion. Hound is my deputy and will be afforded the respect owed to a Commander aboard the Lost Light. This is a ship at war in defense of the galaxy. Insubordination is not acceptable.

This is your first warning. Do not expect another.

Press Statement

It is mildly entertaining that a tyrannical maniac is being asked to comment upon my captaincy. This is the game of the press, which because the galaxy recognizes its freedom under the rule of law, the press may play. Here I say this:

The Lost Light adheres to the law and the spirit of justice. We do not need to attack anyone, whether they bleed energon, copper-infused water, silica, or not at all, in order to stand for what is right. Rodimus has done an honorable thing and the public may insult him for it if the public wills; what is right, however, is this:

We will protect the galaxy from this menace. That is the only political question that I have any interest in answering.
