    Evil Upgrade (tag: Zurg)

    Post by XR on Tue Jul 07, 2009 6:21 pm

    XR flew through the atmosphere of Planet Z, looking at the factory-like red buildings the covered it's surface.
    He'd waited a few minutes outside of the range of the planetary defense systems, not sure what to do, since last time he'd been here all the security had be trying to blast him out of the sky. Well, it hadn't been here here...it had been Planet Z, but back in their old universe.

    And things had certainly changed since then.

    Several Hornets had come out, and were now escorting him to the palace. He had the code that Zurg had given him to get in, so when they reached the door, he was ready to enter it.

    "Your Evil Windbagness! The Robot Ranger, XR, has dared to approach your palace!" A measly grub squeaked, while a separate one came out of hiding.

    "Shall we activate your Evil defense grid and blast him?" The second asked.

    The Evil Emperor Zurg set down his holo-paper and upturned his head towards the giant, over-head monitors that dotted about his Throne Room; the robot ranger right smack onto all their green, fizzy screens.

    "Now, now, my stinky, little grubs! Is that how we treat our guests?" He cooed, getting up out of his throne and setting down his reading glasses on an arm rest. "We don't blow them willy-nilly out of the sky!" He scowled.

    "But what about that last gu--"

    "WHATDIDIJUSTSAY."

    The grubs let out a yell and scampered off like the little scaredy-bugs that they were as Zurg finished walking down upon his stairs. He approached a rather trembling brain pod and clasped his hands evilly.

    "You there, pod 36, tell the Hornets to escort our little visitor. Oh, and get the spare lab ready. I believe I have...an operation to do."

    The brain pod dipped its cranial capsule in a bow, and rolled around to relay the command via a station monitor.

    "Yes, oh Evil Emperor Zurg! Your will is our command!" It shivered to say.

    "You got that right, lame-brain." The Evil Emperor smiled, feeling positively evil.

    Oh this will be great evil fun for the whole evil family! He just knew it.

    XR entered the code into the front door.

    Zulu-Uniform-Romeo-Golf

    Oh, the first letters spelled out Zurg...hm, cute.

    He stepped back as the door opened, before wheeling inside. Last time he'd walked this hall he'd been terrified, jumping at every movement, scanning every shadow...but this time Zurg had invited him. Besides, if the evil emperor was planning a trap, XR would be ready. He'd had enough experience since arriving in Portal Breach to keep a few tricks up his non-existent sleeves, although he was sure that if anyone had energy-vampire-proofed their house (besides himself, of course) it would be Zurg. Well, hopefully it wouldn't come to that. He needed this upgrade if he was to deal with the Cybertronians, and Zurg was the only one who could give it to him.

    XR followed the escort Hornets down the halls. He didn't know the palace well enough to know where they were heading.

    The Hornets, being the dumb machines that they were, weren't afraid of the energy vampire ranger in their midst. In fact, they probably didn't know that they were fully outfitted to explode upon contact with the energy vampire's fangs as a security precaution.

    That's how dumb they were.

    Regardless, they marched the pudgy tin can through hallways, corridors, elevators and twisted torture chambers before they finally came about to the Evil Emperor's lair; the Throne Room on the fourteenth level.

    "Hmm, hmmm, hmmm~! Oh! Well, if it isn't the plucky robot Ranger." Zurg smiled, the room dark and misty as the Evil Emperor glided across the metal flooring like a purple spectre. "Welcome. I'm sure you know why you're here, yes?" He finished, his grin going from horn to horn in a most evil fashion upon eying the little vampiric minion.

    They had reached the thrown room. XR followed the Hornets inside and stood as Zurg spoke.

    "I'm sure you know why you're here, yes?"

    XR nodded. "Yes. Thank you for this," He said. With all the new robots, especially the ones that couldn't be drained, he'd need an upgrade; increase his powers, make his mind control more powerful.

    "No, thank you."

    Zurg smiled warmly, feeling delight with himself and his badness. Thanks to XR, the Evil Emperor could finally do horrible, immoral, bad things! Without getting his hands soiled one drop!

    "Now, let's get your little upgrades shall we?" He eyed his yellow-black robotic minions and snapped his fingers, the Hornets automatically rolling in a stretcher with robotic restraints. Without a moment to lose, Zurg swooped XR and slammed him forcefully down; the Evil Emperor's fast-moving hands easily locking XR into place.

    "There! Now you're all ready to upgrade." Zurg chuckled, rolling his hands for his minions to cart XR out of the throne room, the Hornets wheeling the robot for about ten minutes until they reached a lab that was designed much like an operating room. There were large, bright round overhead lights and tables filled with odd, cruel instruments.

    "Ahhhh....how good it is to be in this lab. I created NOS here, you know." Zurg said, whisking out of dual, double doors with a surgeon's get up over his normal Evil Emperor attire; he even wore a surgical mask and hair hat with rubber gloves.

    "Place him right there, underneath the Atomizer."

    The hornets complied and wheeled XR towards a rather painful looking device, the same one used on Torque, and pivoted the stretcher so that XR was facing it face first to the sky.

    "Comfy?" Zurg asked, still smiling.

    XR let out a hiss as he was grabbed and strapped onto the table. Craters, what was he thinking coming to Zurg? It WAS a trap! And he couldn't reach his communicator to call for help...although honestly he'd be in so much trouble if Buzz found out that he'd come here, he might stand a better chance against whatever Zurg was going to do to him.

    "Ahhhh....how good it is to be in this lab. I created NOS here, you know."

    XR wasn't sure if that made him feel better or worse. He was leaning towards worse, and when they put him under a horrible looking device he was sure it was worse. Atomizer? Oh great...he tried to pull out of the straps but they wouldn't budge.

    "Comfy?"

    "To be honest...no." XR said, trying and failing to hid his nerves as he looked from Zurg to the Atomizer.

    "Like those bonds? The grubs reinvented them after much....pep-talking from the fiasco with your team during the Tanker Alley fiasco."

    The little nurse grubs covered their heads with trembling hands, as Zurg gave them the scariest look of the work cycle.

    "Anyway~! Let's begin, shall we?" He smiled, bending over to pick up a rather cruel and diabolical device; it almost resembled a tiny sawblade with sharp, crooked teeth.

    The ceiling panel moved and Sister Miriam's head popped out of it, only her upper torso was able to be seen.

    "Don't touch that," She hissed, then she popped back into the ceiling.

    "Hey! It's that nice lady who gave all those wonderfully coloured religious pamphlets about sinners!" One grub pipped up.

    "Yeah! They even explode when you touch them!"

    Zurg just blinked at his two, stupid minions and whirled around to face none other than....SISTER!?

    "GET OUT OF MY VENTILATION SHAFT, WOMAN!" He roared, throwing that painful-looking pokey-thing upwards at her with alarming accuracy.

    A squeak came from the shaft, and Miriam's hand flew out, throwing the painfully looking pointy thing back at Zurg with some of her blood on it.

    She popped her head back out, pointed her finger at him, then popped back in and moved the ceiling panel back into place.

    "Woman....gah...."

    Zurg rolled his eyes and mentally made a note to schedule a ventiliation cleaning sweep next Tuesday if he could allow it.

    "Anyway, BACK to business." He sighed, cracking his back and turning back over to XR. "Let's start with a more powerful mind control...."

    The Evil Emperor gently popped out XR's front chassis plating and had a look inside his inner workings.

    "Hmmm....Star Command is SO below par. This technology is decades old! For shame..." He muttered, sticking his hands inside and having his way with the instruments. He fiddled and faddled with all the wirings, shuffling most of XR's odd tidbits of items--although the Victoria Circuits magazine was enough to make him go WTZ--but he otherwise had an easy time as he found XR's central processing unit.

    "There we are...."

    Zurg brought out an odd batch of pliers and added a few....modifications.

    A snip snip there, a snip snip here....wonderful!

    "Ahah! Better mind control! That'll reinforce your programming for optimal effieciency."

    XR yelped as Zurg picked up some kind of saw. A saw?! What did he need a saw for?! XR redoubled his struggling.

    "Hey, ya know, maybe we should, uh, re-schedule? Or maybe I shouldn't be taking up your time, really, I-"

    There was a rattling from overhead and XR looked up as...Miriam came out of the ceiling. He blankly watched her and Zurg's short interaction. How had she even gotten here? She was definitely creepy.

    XR cringed and braced himself as Zurg returned his attention to him.
    But Zurg, thankfully, didn't use the now-bloody saw-thing. Instead he opened XR's front panel and shuffling past all the crap that was in there. XR was used to having the LGMs in there, replacing damaged parts or just checking to make sure he was working properly, but the fact that it was Zurg poking around in there made him uncomfortable. He was very exposed; very vulnerable.

    "Ahah! Better mind control! That'll reinforce your programming for optimal effieciency."

    "Nice." XR said, grinning despite his nerves. He was liking the mind control, it had worked really well with Blitzwing...until the crazy Decepticon had broken it. Well, that wouldn't happen again.

    "Mind control boosted by at least 400%. Should be easy on those Cybertronians now, I'd say."

    Zurg put the electro-pliers down and continued with his upgrading, fixing LGM mistakes, making the robot more effiecient in both movement and function, and even added a cruel electric shock program that would spark anyone foolish enough to come into contact with XR's fangs.

    "What else....what else....oh!"

    The Evil Emperor snapped XR's chassis plating back into place, and took out a....tattoo-kit!? No wait....what....WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN!?

    "Time for a little make over!" Zurg kicked on the etching tool and began to drill and ink around XR's Star Command logo, erasing and adding here and there as he began to make out what appeared to be bat wings...?

    "And for the finishing touch...."

    BBBBBBBZZZT!

    There was now a 'Z' in the middle of the logo!

    400%, perfect. No robot would be able to resist that.

    And he could feel his systems running smoother, faster. Zurg was quite an mechanic.

    XR blinked as Zurg started doing...something to the front of his storage panel. He didn't say anything, until Zurg stepped back.

    "What did you do?" He asked, since his cylindrical torso prevented him from actually seeing his front panel. He popped out a mirror and checked out Zurg's handy-work. Not bad, actually. He liked the bat-wing look. He noted the Z...Buzz would not like that, but he didn't really care. He didn't take orders from that man anymore. "Heh, nice touch." He smirked. A sudden thought hit him. "Oh, can I have a cape?"
