A datanet comm comes from Rodimus without subject or other desperately needed information like context that consists almost entirely of emoji and fractured words. Frankly, it's a struggle to imagine what it might look like; decoding it is nearly as unimaginably difficult. The most repeated emoji is ๐Ÿ™‡.

Drift needs to do this for himself. That's why he left in the first place. I'll stop him from getting himself killed when he goes on these escapades, but I don't think I can intervene otherwise.

I know you miss him but please be cautious.

2017-12-31 Captain's note in daily briefing

Bundled with the day's morning briefing is a video update from Rodimus. It's not long, and addressed to the crew of the Lost Light in narrow, casual focus:

"Hi, guys."

Rodimus is in his office. He splits the difference between standing, leaning, and sitting, tucked up against the front edge of his desk with his hands braced to either side and his spoiler angled with confidence. He wears a determined smile.

"By now you're probably aware that Orion Pax and Megatron have called Autobots and Decepticons to report to the fight against Unicron."

Rodimus waits a beat and then leans forward, his smile flashing wider: "I welcome them to the battle.

"It's a battle we've been fighting since the beginning. The Lost Light was there when Unicron we formed. We struck the first hits and took the first blows. It's our scouts that tracked him, our soldiers that fought his Harbingers, and our scientists who've worked to uncover his secrets. And, yeah, it's our medics that patched us up more times than I'd like.

"It hasn't been an easy fight. You have stood against the destruction, defending people who -- let's be real -- kind of hate us sometimes. I couldn't be more proud of you guys."

Rodimus sits back then. Though the warmth lingers, his expression sobers. "You're probably also aware that Megs just can't help but pair his stirring speeches with a threat. He's literally incapable. But things have changed. This isn't the Cybertron of the war: an isolated wasteland torn apart by two turbowolves determined to starve the other. We've got the beginning of something awesome here. A Council of Worlds, formed from the lost colonies that we rediscovered, and Cybertron itself reborn.

"This ship has been at the center of it all, and we've been a beginning, too. I'll stand between any threat in the universe and what we've worked to build. And I know I'm not alone.

"Megatron says he will remember. That's fine. Remember that things have changed. Remember those we lost and the home that was all but destroyed. I'm gonna rely on you guys to remember for me. I'd rather rebuild. And I know that nothing -- not factions, not Unicron -- is strong enough to tear down everything we've already begun build together."

...then the screen fades to black on Rodimus fingergunning at the camera.

I am requesting comm access. I had promised Metroplex further updates, and will need to be filing a report with Caminus as well. I understand the need to take precautions in light of the recent Harbinger attack but I can promise that neither Metroplex nor the Mistress of Flame are agents of our enemies.

Thank you. May the Hand guide.

2017-08-20 Update on Recent Events

The following shipwide announcement is made both over the comm, and sent by text. The fact that it is an extremely legible text is probably due to the fact that Rodimus now has a little extra help in his office. Shout out to Fritz.

"Hey, guys. Got the final report back from Ratchet and medical, and I'm happy to report that we're all clear. Now here's the part where I tell that it also means that we're all US. Because this wasn't actually about nanoviruses at all. Sorry about the deception, but what it actually was about was a different attack by the Lost -- by the way, who started calling them Light Lost? I heard it and it's great and a Rodimus star to you. Very nice.

"Right, well. Turns out they'd also grabbed Ultra Magnus and Whetstone and tried sneaking their own in. Lieutenant led a comms team including Arrow, Cosmos, and Orbitall, uncovering a transmission by their Minimus of our crew roster and some of the details of our search. Thus far, we don't believe they know anything further, including our location, but the Rigardians and Tempo are on high alert.

As result of the comms team's work, we were able to arrest their Minimus. Their Whetstone was killed trying to break him free and escape by Bone Spur and Chimera. We recovered our Minimus and our Whetstone on the same strike where we recovered the others.

"I want to really recognize the work that Arrow, Cosmos, Lieutenant and Orbitall did, because it's thanks to them -- and Bone Spur and Chimera barring the door -- that we have a major bargaining chip. We have their Minimus Ambus, and we'll be ransoming him in exchange for as many Decepticon slaves as we can get. And it sounds like we might get a lot.

"So thanks, Medical, for all of your work over the past week -- but I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask more of you. Great work, everyone, and keep it up -- 'til all are one!"

2017-08-16 hey

The following message has been meticulously spellchecked with predictably awful results, considering what it probably looked like before checking. But HE TRIED is stamped all over every stupid mistake.

TO: Soundwave


So it probably shouldn't have taken two tires for me too realize that trying to keep talking to you was a bad idea ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜– I probably shouldn't have taken one try that was dumb if I just stopped to think ๐Ÿ˜ซ but I just was really, really glad your back. Really. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ™Œ

That sounds way fake in text but I tried writing really a bunch more times and it just looked more like I meant it even less so whatever. ๐Ÿ‘‹ You know?

Anyways I'm sorry I was stupid to try to talk to you and I was stupid to not be there sooner. I won't make that mistake again. ๐Ÿ˜ค ๐Ÿ˜ค ๐Ÿ˜ค You know were to find me so until then I'll stick to messages ๐Ÿ“ like this on.


The more I think about it the more I realize just how much they fragged up ๐Ÿคฆ and I'm not just talking about who slagged off I am about it ๐Ÿ˜ก or that I'm going to dismantle him ๐Ÿ”ง ๐Ÿ”จ โš’ ๐Ÿ›  โ› ๐Ÿ”ฉ โš™๏ธ โ›“ or anything like that even if it's true. I'm talking about you and Rav ๐Ÿฑ and Pench ๐Ÿฎ and Sir Speech Alot ๐Ÿธ. I'm talking about them underestimating you.

It's not you're canon that ever made you dangerous.

Anyone stupid and foolish and arrogant enough to take you into the middle of all of there operations honestly deserves exactly what's coming to them. Because they have weaknesses and they have blind spots ๐Ÿ™ˆ and they couldn't have handed us a better opening to get two of our ๐Ÿ”Ž best spies๐Ÿ” right into the middle of it all. And then they went and got you guys mad.

Pretty dumb too be honest.

I'm looking forward to watching you make them pay for it. ๐Ÿ”ซ ๐Ÿ’ฃ ๐Ÿ”ช ๐Ÿ—ก โš”๏ธ ๐ŸŽŠ ๐ŸŽ‰ Let me know what you need.


PS you should send back ๐Ÿค› because then it's a fist bump see.

2017-08-15 Re: To Rodimus


(It's a vague message that demands to be exempt from the medical examinations on the basis of him being Prowl (Prowl). Also some congratulations on the moderately successful mission.)

Later Prowl (and Lieutenant) will find a specifically mandated appointment for Prowl on his schedule.

To increase the workflow, I require the assistance of logistics personnel. I have selected Ultra Magnus.

Attached is a detailed schedule of when he will need to serve on the bridge under my supervision during his shift hours along with the duties required of him during that time and the official form. I have a work station situated so he may begin immediately.

Your signatures required. Prompt reply and return of signed form expected.

Ship Message: Command Changes

Rodimus sends the following as a video message, which means no one has to try to decipher his idea of proper grammar or spelling:

"So now that you've all had a little time to absorb Ultra Magnus's message, let me first confirm it, second thank him for his service and wish him luck, and third, tell you a little bit about where we're gonna go from here.

"Ultra Magnus submitted his resignation a while ago, and we've been working since then to make sure that this transition is about as smooth as we can manage it. It's tempting to think that he's irreplaceable, and maybe he kind of is: he handles as one person what it's gonna take three to do without him. Luckily, I've got that three, and hundreds more besides.

"So, thanks, Magnus. Thanks for seeing us through let's not count how many -- and I mean it, please don't count -- crisises. Thanks for being an unwavering foundation of principle and discipline. Good luck.

"Hound will be assuming Ultra Magnus's former rank and duties as executive officer and second-in-command. Drift remains as third-in-command."

Rodimus steadies himself, then regards the camera directly as he says, "And Soundwave will be joining command as the final bridge officer."

There's a long pause as he clearly tries to figure out the best way to wrap that bomb up, then Rodimus just says, "Okay, bye, have fun on Velocitron but not too much fun, you know?"

Then message ends.

wats the big deal w ur gun its not ill.? nudge doesn't sound very rad not like my SUPER COOL BOW. just tell eng to make it then.

TO: First Aid
FROM: Rodimus

did u need something to help skids that u aren't getting? getaway is like 'extra resources' but idk what. u need put in the request. med should have w/e it needs to help ppl.

Greetings captain,

Recently I mentioned to you that I had some ideas that might help me and you mentioned that they could be sent to you directly. As you are the captain of this vessel I don't imagine you have much time for personal requests such as these however you asked, and I stated I would send them to you.

The first would be to have my nudge gun made, which I know sounds like it is not a pleasant thing but it is a peaceful weapon and if I am to think of myself that way this would help. It has sentimental value. Brainstrom has told me he lacks the supplies to manufacture it, however I am unconvinced that is the case.

Second, I am very accustomed to having someone to check in with, or more appropriately, someone to report to. I have no illusions of having a security job nor do I want one, but I find myself unable to reverse any training I have had in detecting suspicious activity. If I had someone I could pass concerns on to that would be helpful to my general mindset. I imagine this would be Tailgate however he might have too much on his plate. I am unsure if I should bother him further.

Recent things have had me spending a lot of time in the machine shop. These tireless heroes rarely see the light of day as they are busy keeping things going. Could something extra special be arranged for just them?

Consider options on how to handle the neuts. That is a situation that is only going to get worse, I am sure of it.

Your recent Autobot Code class was a great idea. Perhaps mandatory courses for the on board Cons?

Finally, Skids. He has become increasingly upset about his blank mental state and there might be medical ways to help him. I have already talked to First Aid about this. Would it be possible to afford First Aid some extra resources to be able to better research the situation to help us?

That's all I can think to ask which might be more than I should be asking for.

Getaway out.
