Episode 1 - Powerful Collisions
Autobot's initiative - 6 (18)
Decepticon's initiative - 6.6 (20)

The soundless vacuum of space shows a plethora of pinprick lights on a infinitely black background. The point of view slowly tilts to show the blue and green with white swirled landscape of the planet Earth. Looking through the windows, those on the large ship know as Perihelion can see the blobs of green and brown. Chaos seems to have had full rain on the design of those land masses as processors do long form math, instinctively mapping and postulating how something that had no controlling hand in it's design could exist under the laws of physics.

The Decepticons have arrived over their target.

Looking down, the land mass resembles some kind of animal that is jumping onto a misshapen head. Near the chest area of this animal is where the Collider has been built underground. Sensors on the ship pick up the inbound movements of the so called Heroic Autobots who are on their way to the exact location the Decepticons are, but the Autobots won't arrive before the Decepticons can.

OCC: Okay, Decepticons are up first, but they only will have a few minutes of preparation before the Autobots arrive. Declare y'all's actions and you'll get a few turns before the Autobots arrive.

Episode 1 - Powerful Collisions
Drumfire calls to his fellow decepticons "Gremlin get to work, Perihelion and Apogee lets intercept the Autobots away from the facility to give Gremlin more time to work."

Drumfire then transforms into a A-10 Thunderbolt II and exits one of Preihelion's hangars heading in the direction of the autobots scanning with his radar.

23:23, Mon 11 Feb: Secret Roll: Drumfire rolled 7 using 1d10 with rolls of 7.  Surveillance (A-10 Mode) 9.

Episode 1 - Powerful Collisions
Entering the atmosphere near the least inhabited north pole area Perihelion follows a path southward and a little east not slowing down until he is almost on top of the target location.  Spewing out fire, and more than a little smoke, from the rapid deceleration burn the ship slows down faster than any craft that needed to protect organic occupants could ever hope to manage and comes to a complete stop just inside the southeast boundary of the compound.
Opening large cargo doors on the bottom side Perihelion hovers only a few dozen meters above the ground, within easy drop distance for any robot form.  ”Where we intercept them hardly matters, setting up a defensive position might grant the ground units an edge.”

Despite Drumfire's remark, there was nothing but silence in return.  No chirpy chatter to pipe back... for whatever reason, there was a very noteworthy absence of Gremlin.

Episode 1 - Powerful Collisions
"Oh, did they see us coming?  Shocking."

"We did warn them.  But this is the play that was called."  Upscan leaned forwards and put a hand on Lookdown's shoulder, speaking more quietly.  "We just have to make it out alive."

The two 'bots clapped each others' shoulders, a rare gesture of solemn solidarity.  There was the rhythmic churning of cybermatter, as they deformed, crouching down on taloned feet and spreading newfound wings, leaping out from Perihelion's bay.

The two bots scanned the area for a choke point, some place that they could prevent the ingress of the Autobots, and moved directly towards it.  Lookdown dipped one wing, and then began to fall from the sky, landing heavily on the pavement, scanning it with a critical eye, before starting to work with his Quantum beam.  Upscan dipped to one side, vanishing into a rise beside it, using his own beam to start clearing the area.

Episode 1 - Powerful Collisions
"Okay sounds good we'll set up here and let them come to us" Drumfire says accepting his subordinates suggestions unlike many Decepticon commanders.

Drumfire will circle above the CERN facility keeping his radar alert for any autobots, or other problems should the humans decide to interfere.
