Espionage:

Soundwave crouched behind the hole in the hold of the ship that had been made by Megatron, letting the fire hit it and not him. He silently relayed orders to Ravage then ejected the black cat to glide over the ship and in the other side of the massive hole. Soundwave sensed the Autobot leader wondering and stop firing he aimed around the corner and caught the Autobot shattering his window glass and giving Ravage the opportunity to enter unseen. Soundwave then backed up behind the hull and waited.

Ravage, stalked around to the computers main import he transformed and slid in, sending a silent communication to Soundwave. Soundwave in return came out and fried at Prime with full force. The Autobot took a step back then regained his notable composure and took aim at the infamous Decepticon. He fried a load of hot plasma the hit Soundwave dead center pushing him away from the Autobot cruiser and melting his cassette door.

Ravage down loaded the implanted virus, then self ejected from the main frame. He ran out headed straight for the Blue and Red Leader. Optimus' attention on Soundwave Ravage leaped at the throat and clamped down making him stop firing. Soundwave clutched at his chest for an instant his hate of Autobots renewed then called to Ravage to make their escape.

Prime knew the old Decepticon better than most, and headed straight for the computer. As he expected, there was a new heading and there was no way now to navigate a new destination, as well as the communications module destroyed. The ship and a two- hour flight till the effects of the black hole would start to affect it. He needed help and he needed it now.
