Renegade Victory Part 1
Renegade Victory Part 1 is a fictional story in the Transformers: Renegade Rhetoric series episode 19. Written in 2016, it retroactively took place in an unaired second season of the Challenge of the GoBots animated series.
The Renegades win the war in the present by going back in time to kidnap Leader-1 before he was a GoBot.
Dear Cy-Kill, Have you ever used time travel to strike at the Guardians?
Cy-Kill: Would a Renegade with my wits not attempt to use such a tool? My most recent use of time travel involved Saeculum Gamma, a planet where time itself becomes mutable. Crasher, Cop-Tur, Tank, and myself traveled back to GoBotron's distant past though their Time Portal. We arrived before the cataclysm that forced us to transfer our minds into robot bodies. Our mission was simple, find Leader-1 before he rose to prominence, and bring him back to a Renegade-dominated future.
We succeeded, locating the being called Luther Unum. Despite his protestations that he was but a humble archivist, and not a great military leader, Cop-Tur bagged him and brought him back to the present. And what a glorious present it was, with the Renegades victorious and both GoBotron and Earth firmly under my heel. Eager to see what sights this brave new world had to offer, I set forth for GoBotron. When I arrived, I was greeted by servile Guardians and led to my throne room. I will admit to a small thrill at being waited on hand and foot by Small Foot and Zeemon. My Viceroy, Zero, seemed to have Earth well in hand, with the aid of the odious collaborator President Braxis.
Sadly for everyone, at the instant we went back, Scooter, Turbo, Van Guard, and Throttle were busy developing a new kind of force field with Nick and A.J. They were shielded from the temporal waves and had their full set of memories of the original timeline. They met up with Matt and Major Mo, the resistance leaders on Earth. After a few minutes of conversation, it became clear to the Guardians that this was a timeline with no Leader-1.
Figuring the answers had to be on GoBotron, they convinced the resistance to sneak the orthogonally-displaced intruders aboard one of the Thrusters carrying Earth's tribute to GoBotron, leaving only Matt behind. On board the Thruster, they were nearly discovered by Slicks. Unfortunately, the Guardian slave Guide Star realized what was happening and caused a diversion, distracting my idiot lieutenant. He then sneaked back to them and asked if this had anything to do with the high-priority prisoner, Luther Unum, who had been captured and brought back to GoBotron. "It just might, Guide Star," mused Scooter. "It just might."
Once here, they split up. Scooter, Nick, and Major Mo were to try to rescue Luther Unum. Turbo, Throttle, Vanguard, and A.J. were to discover how I had changed the timeline so drastically. Major Mo staged a diversion outside the walls of the prison, convincing several downtrodden Guardians to riot outside its walls. This allowed Scooter and Nick to enter undetected. They found Luther's cell, but he continued to insist that he was a simple GoBeing and not the great leader everyone wanted him to be. Nick expressed his disappointment, but Scooter pointed out that this was still early in his timeline, and that Luther had plenty of time to grow into a great leader. At that moment, they ran into Decker Decker and Fly Trap, and things seemed dire!
Meanwhile, Turbo, Vanguard, and Throttle opted for a more direct approach, hiding outside of GoBotolis and waiting for a glimpse of me or my lieutenants. They spotted Cop-Tur and engaged him in battle, quickly downing him. Though he attempted to keep his beak shut, A.J. tricked him into mentioning Saeculum Gamma by saying that they'd already rescued Luther and were taking him back to where we'd found him. Dolt. But not without his moments, for he had activated a beacon and summoned Zod, who menaced the Guardians as Cop-Tur laughed!
Harrison Skinner: On a scale of "fancy chair" to "could hide the workings of an escape pod," how large was your throne?
Cy-Kill: It was quite a masterpiece of engineering, if I do say so myself.
