NOTES

Unlettered art.

A sequel to Short Story Replacement.

The Lords Of J'Nwan are back: a tribute to both Battlestar Galactica (Lords Of Kobol) and Simon Furman's works for BotCon (J'nwan = Gen One).

Fistfight is "Shockwave's little helper". Were he on Earth, he'd be Santa's Little Helper and Bart Simpson would love him.

This story takes place a little before the flashback shown Devastation #5, page 1.
Or a little later: depends on what you think Starscream is doing in the flashback. Pretending or showing real concern?

It would appear that these deactivation codes are just part of a larger fail-safe built in Sixshot's software.
This expansion of the concept brought to the "Achilles Virus", described in Last Stand Of The Wreckers #3, page 1.
The book states that the Achilles Virus was created by Shockwave. Since we implied that Sixshot is one of Shockwave's experiments, we inadvertently stayed in continuity, long before LSotW were even announced (yes, we devised The Replacement a looong time ago).

"Pi-Orion-Actual-Orbit": see Devastation #5, page 20. Now you know.
Wow, Starscream kept those a secret for thousands of years! And Shockwave never had a chance to change them (of course, he vanished not much later, in Spotlight: Shockwave).

Will Fistfight survive this fall?
Yes, because Tomoko nominated him Seeds Of Deception official mascot: starting in the next 36 hours, the two-pager Survival Instinct illustrated by Megumi will show you how Fistfight will handle this predicament (and Starscream's betrayal).

Great portrayal of Starscream and art! This story fits so much his sneaky sadistic attitude. Now I understand how he got to know Six Shot's deactivation code. I found so weird that Megatron had willingly revealed it to his unfaithful second in command.

Thanks!
This is another of our short stories that were never submitted to Mosaic.

(Usual self promotion line: don't miss the Starscream-less sequels listed in the comments)

The art's a mess. I couldn't tell what was going on with whom or anything! Joking.
Good job on this Mosaic. Clever tie in to the comic explaining how SS knew the code for ol' Sixshot and SS looks great in jet form here.

We really should team up and do another story of the youth Screamer :3
eabevella's avatar
Haha, that would be interesting.

Hmm, "Worship Of The Hero", featuring Starscream's manipulation of the news and the journalists (such as Rook and the Cassettes).
His questionable acts during the Liberation Missions become heroic deeds and Starscream is hailed as a war hero, when he enters the ranks of the cybertronian science police known as ATLEA.

Sounds interesting. And Starscream is a little like Faceman from the A-team, but in a bad way, hun? ;)
