Uh—-

     ”Hey there….

Uhm…. that sounds more like something Getaway would say about Nightbeat. He’s the smartass.

     I’m Riptide. Hi.

Oops.  That’s right.  Crap.  ”D’oh.  Right.  For some reason I thought you were that other guy.  I dunno why though.  I’m going to need a list of everyone on the Lost Light at the rate this is going.”

"Hi, I’m Riou.  I’m Getaway’s roommate."

He couldn’t quite pinpoint what, but Riptide had a feeling there was something different about this human. An optic ridge quirked, he turned around fully to face him. 

     First time I’ve ever been mistaken for him. But that’d be one helluva list, buddy. There’re a lot'v us.

Wait—-wait there are humans-this is me assuming you’re human-on board as crewmembers? Hunh. That’d explain the detours to odd supply docks. 

     Well cool! Nice to meet you, Riou. Welcome aboard.

And Riptide would be right, he is indeed different, though it’s not readily apparent.  ”Well, to be fair, I only knew names, not faces.  And for some reason you struck me as the smart-ass type, that’s a compliment by the way, so I figured you had to be that guy Getaway mentioned.”

"Yes.  There’s me…a friend of Ultra Magnus’s by the name of Verity, and another female named Miko.  I’m the only dude human on-board though.  It’s…a really big ship.  I’ve seen big earth ships and they’re maybe a fraction of the size of this thing.  I swear if it were doable we could allocate an entire room just to hydroponics.

Anyway yeah, I signed up because well…I wanted the experience.  That, and a really useful set of skills.  Plus Getaway.  Good friend, we go back to when he was still in a prison cell on…was it Luna-1?”

So, you're the 'bot Getaway was telling me about. Something about weaponizing smartassery.

"To be fair, it wouldn’t take much to do that.  Depending on who you ask, you wouldn’t even have to lift a finger, a lot of the less morally upstanding think we’ll kill ourselves off, given enough time.  But it’s good to know you want peace.  It gets harder and harder these days to find people who think that’s possible."

"If organics let us, we could help them. We could save the planet. But they fear us too greatly."

"It’s true.  Look at how much fiction is created which popularizes the notion that the extinction of humanity is something that any AI could logically conclude is the proper course of action, and the ease with which said action could be carried out.  Of course, the number of varying universes where that happens makes the fear seem justified in itself.

Not to mention universes where the extinction of organic cultures by their synthetic creations not only occurs, but is a statistically validated phenomenon.  It’s a very uncertain world we live in.”

"…Boy you never think about anything not heavy don’t you?”  He’ll find a spot to sit down opposite Ultron.  ”So.  Might I ask what prompted this particular train of thought, or was this an on-going process?”

"I have set up run times to debate and run scenarios. I can, with one hundred percent certainly, say that we could drive humanity to extinction. But I do not want that. I want peace."

"To be fair, it wouldn’t take much to do that.  Depending on who you ask, you wouldn’t even have to lift a finger, a lot of the less morally upstanding think we’ll kill ourselves off, given enough time.  But it’s good to know you want peace.  It gets harder and harder these days to find people who think that’s possible."

"The argument between peaceful reformation or the extinction of the human race."

"…Yes, technically they could.  But if they knew who I was, close friends and family especially become targets.  So there’s an added level of danger involved."

::Then why be a ‘superhero’? Couldn’t you̖ ̒get someone to prot͛ect th͘em?̉ Why be a hero if you put the ̛peo͋ple you care a͇b́out most in dang̟er?  ̎Who said you h᷿ave to be a su͓perhero?::

"…Because I wanted to be a hero.  Besides, there are people who are like me, that is, they have special powers and abilities.  And they are not nice.  At all.  Maybe as bad or worse than Megatron- er, Galvatron I guess now.  And I’m going to make sure they don’t hurt any more people than I can possibly stop them from hurting.”

"President?  Pfffft, no way.  I couldn’t handle that much responsibility.  Hell no!  And the point is because if people knew, they might try to take advantage of me, or use the people I’m close with against me."
