Agenda (Part 1)
We see the
transwarp wave front traveling through space. Back at base,
Rhinox is tracing it. He zooms in on Cybertron's solar system
and says: "The transwarp explosion wave front should be entering
Cybertronian space now. They'll be detecting it within a few
cycles. This is it...we're going home." There is
a happy cheer among the Maximals as Optimus dances with Cheetor,
Rattrap gives Silverbolt a bugs-bunny smooch on the head and Rhinox
blows a party popper. Silverbolt reflects that Cybertron is
the home he's never known. Rattrap tells him about a place
he knows which Silverbolt will love (for various Rattrap reasons).
Silverbolt doesn't look too happy.
In the Predacon
base, Megatron asks Inferno about the early humans. Inferno
reports to him that the attack on the valley by Dinobot has caused
several tribes to scatter, and it will be impossible to find them
now. Megatron watches a screen monitoring Blackarachnia and
tells Inferno that he has only one other high-risk option remaining:
to gamble, and 'hope the dice rolls' in his favour.
flies to a spot beside a lake and waits for Blackarachnia.
She comes up behind him and demands he hand over a graviton generator.
He grabs her hands and asks 'why the weapon?' She says she
thought it would make things easier for him, but he says nothing
about giving her the generator is easy (as we assume he stole it
from the Maximals). He gives it to her and she is delighted.
He tells her she should join with them and reminds her she was originally
a Maximal protoform. She tells him she likes being a 'bad
girl and she says deep down, he likes it too. (What happens next
is left to the imagination.)
the wave front and watch it disrupt a space station, throwing its
occupants about. Then we see three Predacons rise up around
a table and begin a council. This is the Tripredicus council.
They discuss the wave front and realize that its signature reads
that of the ship stolen by Megatron. They remember that they
paid for Megatron's crime in diplomatic repercussions. This
angers them and one of the council members tells them that they
have been working towards the day they will rise up against the
Maximals and take what is rightfully theirs. The council agree
that 'Megatron is brilliant, but a rogue' and causes too much trouble.
They have to handle the situation first before the Maximals find
out. They send a signal to one of their satellites which 'accidentally'
explodes, blocking the Maximal sensors from detecting the wave.
Another council member has arranged for a covert operative...they
all chuckle darkly and we watch a black, menacing ship (transwarp
cruiser) become cloaked (invisible, although the viewers can see
a vague translucent outline). The operative's instructions
are to trace the wave front back to its source and terminate with
arrives back at base. Optimus says it's now or never for Megatron.
Cheetor suggests he might take hostages and Optimus says he's praying
that's all Megatron tries to do.
we get a quick look at Waspinator and Inferno setting something
up outside the Axalon.
Rattrap asks Silverbolt where he's been. Silverbolt murmurs
'scout patrol', and Rattrap responds sarcastically: "Oh
yeah, yeah, scoutin' the enemy yeah....find any new...positions?"
Silverbolt snaps and throws Rattrap to the ground. Optimus
asks what's going on and Silverbolt apologizes for overacting.
Optimus tells them it's not the time to be fighting and they must
go back to their post.
We get an
other quick shot of Waspinator and Inferno configuring some machine.
want you all to stay alert. Report any motion, any unusual
readings. The attack may come, but it may be subtle,"
Optimus tells his crew.
again, we watch Rampage appear (in tank mode) and leap onto the
machine Waspinator and Inferno were setting up, and crush it.
He decides to do things his way: quick and powerful, and fires three
missiles at the base. Inside, the explosions throw everyone
I said! Subtle," Optimus says. They realize the
shields are failing and switch on the external auto guns, but Waspinator
and Inferno take them out.
space and see the transwarp cruiser is heading towards Earth!
Megatron and Quickstrike have arrived and are also shooting at the
Axalon, Silverbolt tells Optimus the shields are at 20% and falling,
Cheetor says they're losing weapons power and Rhinox announces the
back-up grids are online but they won't last. Optimus asks Rattrap
if there is any sign of Cybertronian ships and Rattrap confirms
there aren't. Optimus begins to tell his crew something, but
he's interrupted when outside, the cruiser has arrived and is shooting
at the Predacons! The Predacons can't see the ship and are
confused. Megatron tells his troops to retreat and return
Rattrap asks what happened, and Optimus said they had help.
Rattrap is puzzled because he says the scanners picked up nothing.
Cheetor points to a ship materializing outside! Optimus orders
the shields to stand down and the Maximals wait expectantly.
Suddenly, the roof hatch opens. Optimus asks Rattrap if the
scanners have picked up something. Rattrap says no.
Silverbolt says: "I smell something...someone's here.
Someone...we can't see." Startled, the Maximals take
out their weapons. Two faint red beams come down with the
sunlight through the hatch and Cheetor asks Optimus what it is.
Optimus says: "Not what, who. After the War, a few Decepticons
were granted amnesty. Most of them have retired, but rumor
has it that one was reprogrammed and rebuilt ...as a Predacon!"
At that moment, their weapons are shot from their hands and a laughing
panther-bot materializes in front of them with two guns. Optimus
declares his name: "Ravage."
for pardon concerning the shooting of the weapons from their hands
but he didn't want any accidents.
immediately doesn't trust him. Optimus tells him to shut up
and asks Ravage to forgive them; they've been fighting Megatron
a long time. Ravage says the Predacon Alliance are deeply
apologetic. He says that it why he is here. Rhinox angrily
asks where the Maximals are! Ravage explains the wave was
very weak and only the Predacon sensors detected it. They
want to handle the situation discreetly.
Blackarachnia finishes a hover craft with her newly acquired graviton
generator. She hides it in a secret floor compartment when
Megatron calls her.
instructs Rampage to position himself in a sub sector. Megatron
tells Blackarachnia to get to her battle station. He commands
Waspinator to journey to some co-ordinates and Blackarachnia, watching
in the background, declares to herself: "This is it!"
the Maximals: Ravage's ship takes off and inside Rattrap says: "So
this is it. We just blast our way in there and finish this
thing." Ravage cloaks them so they are invisible.
He says they have another advantage and we watch a red alert sounding
in Tarantulas's lab. The spider leaves hastily and follows the ship
on the ground.
are released from the ship above the Predacon base and they descend
to the ground. Immediately, they begin fighting the defending
Predacons. Rampage attack the ship, but Ravage returns fire
and blows him up! Optimus orders Silverbolt to take Blackarachnia
(who is hovering up on her new mini-ship) down. Silverbolt
hesitates and when she winks at him, he decides not to. She
starts to get away.. Optimus is furious and tells him again
to do it, but two auto guns blast the Maximal leader. Ravage
begins firing on the Predacon base now, with his ship. Inside,
the Predacon ship malfunctions and Megatron is left helpless.
Three energon bonds are thrown over his hands and body, fastening
him to his seat. Ravage appears and the Maximals come up behind
him. He says: "In the name of the Pact Cybertronia and
the Predacon Alliance, you are under arrest." The Maximals
are delighted...and we pan away from Megatron and watch Earth, still
hearing Megatron's screams of protest. 'To be continued' appears
on the screen....
