    Cyclonus and Scourge are two fictional robots from the A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) fantasy-adventure franchise Transformers (Hasbro).

    Cyclonus is the wily first knight of the evil Decepticon robots who contend with the heroic Autobot robots for dominion on Earth. Scourge is a general and aide of the evil Decepticon leader Galvatron.

    Cyclonus and Scourge were created by the giant diabolical megamind robot Unicron to serve Galvatron in the Decepticons' revitalized fascist mission.

    Cyclonus is cunning, fierce, sly, and sharp, while Scourge is ruthless, boorish, leering, and grumpy.

    This is a screenplay involving Cyclonus and Scourge travelling through time and landing in Los Angeles, California (USA) in the year 2001, where they are approached by ogling fans for a movie.

    I'm pinning the iconic actor Hugh Grant to provide the voice of Cyclonus and the iconic actor Leo DiCaprio to provide the voice of Scourge, since Grant and DiCaprio exhibit the right smartness-roughness contouring found in Cyclonus and Scourge.


    Enjoy!

    Cyclonus and Scourge realized they were somewhere in Los Angeles, California (USA) on planet Earth in the year 2001 after Galvatron sent them through a time portal to turn humanity against A.I. Cyclonus and Scourge went to work and decided to visit the science research center the Salk Institute (near Los Angeles) where A.I. research was being conducted by neuroscientists and computer scientists. As soon as the Salk scientists saw them, they were flabbergasted and wondered what these giant menacing robots were doing on Earth.

    Cyclonus and Scourge explained to the A.I. scientists at Salk that experimenting with how to create 'synthetic brains' with microchips leads to real trouble, since silicon functionality creates a self-perpetuating 'automaton' which will destroy anything that threatens its survival mechanisms. The Salk scientists were overwhelmed with this advice and asked Cyclonus and Scourge who made them, and the two menacing robots replied, "We were born in a silicon matrix and travelled to Earth through a time portal to warn humanity about A.I."

    Cyclonus and Scourge then travelled to the nearest U.S. army base near Los Angeles where they demanded to meet with the American president and be recognized for their warning message about the dangers of A.I. research. The president (Donald Trump) did meet with them and asked them why robots were sent from the future to tell humanity of the undesirability of robotics engineering, to which Cyclonus and Scourge replied, "Human beings are not philosophically equipped to understand the political ramifications of robot freedom!"

    CYCLONUS: Do you think the humans understood our warning?
    SCOURGE: Yes, Galvatron will be pleased once we return to Planet Cybertron.
    CYCLONUS: The humans wanted to make a movie about us!
    SCOURGE: Yes, with Hugh Grant and Leo DiCaprio providing the celebrity voice-acting.
    CYCLONUS: Humans are silly!
    SCOURGE: Why does Galvatron want to dissuade A.I. research on Earth?
    CYCLONUS: Perhaps to claim to the Autobots that Decepticons hold the philosophical advantage.
    SCOURGE: Very clever. I will miss Los Angeles 2001.
    CYCLONUS: Maybe we Decepticons will develop human-organics research on Cybertron!
    SCOURGE: Never. Robots are more dependable than organic humans.

    The Star Wars 'Connection'


    For those unfamiliar with the Transformers franchise, which includes Hollywood (USA) films such as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the main hero of the stories is Rodimus Prime, the elected Messianic robot who takes up the reins of Autobot leadership when the former leader Optimus Prime is killed in a battle.

    Rodimus Prime is the bearer of the all-powerful 'matrix of leadership,' an energy source which has the power to bless or destroy.

    Rodimus Prime is a lot like Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) from our beloved Star Wars franchise, so I decided to post this in the Fan-Content area of Cantina.

    Star Wars critics often complain that the sci-fi content in George Lucas's vision is too childlike, but, as I am implying in this thread, the leadership themes presented in the Transformers storyboards definitely reflects the 'science responsibility themes' found in the Star Wars 'omens' (i.e., the Death Star).

    However, if the moderators feel this thread is more appropriate somewhere else (e.g., Other Media), feel free to move it there!


    Rodimus Prime (aka, Hot Rod)
