Mathew Robert Ignash: Dear Renegade Rhetoric,
Can you honor us with tales of your glorious adventures from after you left the miserable rocky planet Quartex?
Cy-Kill: Damnation and good riddance to Quartex.
Next we encountered an advanced society devoted entirely to automotive racing. I hatched a scheme to assume control by winning the Alienapolis Five Million. I entered my fastest warriors, quite confident of victory. Unfortunately, Leader-1 somehow discovered my plan and entered racers of his own. Rather than risk losing, our forces tried to cheat, but we were discovered by Scooter and Nick and disqualified from the race.
Mathew Robert Ignash: Fascinating, which speedy Renegade and Guardian warriors were entered in the Alienapolis Five Million? Which warriors fought the alien arena?
Cy-Kill: My team for the Alienapolis Five Million were three of the fastest GoBots you ever did see. My first choice was Spoiler, who converts into a Lamborghini Countach 500LPS, thinking his boundless enthusiasm would be an asset. Next I selected the wildly independent Stallion, a Fort Mustang. Naturally, I placed Crasher in command. Not only is she one of my most loyal and capable fighters, but her Porsce 959 configuration made her ideal for the mission. They should have been more than a match for the dimwitted Guardians Sparky, Street Heat, and Turbo, but I took no chances and had Cop-Tur lay a series of booby traps for the Guardians. Street Heat was knocked out of the race, but the accursed Scooter discovered our malfeasance and tattled to the officiants. Crasher refused to yield, even after being disqualified, but Turbo edged her out to the finish line anyway. Can you believe he declined leadership of their society, instead telling them to "go your own way" and then leaving? Preposterous!
Louis Sun: Can you tell us more about your subordinates Slicks and Destroyer?
Cy-Kill: I would be pleased to! Slicks is a Renault RE30 F1 car, and one of my fastest warriors. Had he been available to me during the Alienapolis Five Million, I surely would have used him, but he was back at Rogue Star. He's a bit of an opportunist. In fact, the first time I met one of the Swindles he reminded me a bit of Slicks. He faced off against Van Guard in the Arena, and I'm happy to say he won his conflict through speed and cunning.
