This is how Starscream's leader claim goes in Masters and Students.
[The episode opens on the Nemesis, where Starscream is watching the explosion of the Spacebridge]
Starscream: Such a shame. But I assure you, Megatron, you certainly made a grand exit.
Starscream: Ah Soundwave. Cue the audio/visual. I wish to address the troops.
[Vehicons are in the hall, when Starscream's face comes up on screens all over the ship]
Starscream: The loss of Megatron, leader of the great Decepticon apprise, is certainly a blow to our cause. Yet, we mustn't despair over his tragic demise. But instead, embrace his ultimate sacrifice and build upon the foundation he laid with an even mightier hand.
Vehicon: [raises his hand to ask a question] With all due respect, Commander Star... uh, I mean LORD Starscream.
Starscream: Yes, yes. What is it?
Vehicon: If we failed to conquer Equestria under Lord Megatron's command, what hope do we have now while the Autobots still defend it?
Starscream: [growls] Allow me to be crystal clear: I studied for millennia under our former master, thus I am equipped to lead you. I, Megatron's true heir - Lord Starscream, EMPEROR OF DESTRUCTION!
[The Vehicons begin to murmur]
Starscream: [snarls and angrily storms out] What use are troops who can't rise to the task of inflicting unspeakable destruction in my name?! Ah, but wait. Legend tells of one capable warrior, one who exists here, upon this very planet, one who can be student to my master.
