opens up with a view of a beautiful swirl of coloured clouds in
space which we presume are a galaxy or solar system. We enter
it and zoom in on two floating skulls with long transparent tentacle-like
hair flowing behind them. They have glowing eyes and discuss
the disruption of the time flow on Lexus Earth. We are now
aware that these are the aliens (the Vok). They speak of the
danger the transformers pose to the time flow and decide to send
someone to deal with them. We watch them hover over the unconscious
bodies of Tigatron and Airazor who are still holding hands.
They force the sparks out of them and from their hands another spark-like
energy ball forms. It grows, wraps around the bodies and merges
them into one large transformer, whom the Vok enter. Like
a comet, this transformer speeds off towards Earth, followed by
the two independent sparks of Tigatron and Airazor....
Earth, Megatron is acting as a judge (with a white wig and the classic
hammer) at Quickstrike's trial. It is of course and unfair
trial, as Waspinator's defense of Quickstrike leans far more towards
favouring Megatron. Megatron wants to punish Quickstrike for
betraying him the fuzor's sentence is to be blown to bits, as Rampage
and TM2 Dinobot aim their guns at him. Quickstrike begs for
another chance and Megatron says, very well, he must tell him why
Tarantulas wanted to destroy the Ark. Quickstrike admits he
does not know but that 'dang spider' double-crossed both of them
and he'd be willing to track him down for Megatron and 'kick his
keister'. Megatron is not satisfied and says he is through
being lenient with traitors. Quickstrike's sentence is about
to be carried out when there is an interruption. The computer
sounds a priority alert and Megatron checks and sees that an alien
signal has been detected. It is approaching the planet.
detects the same thing in his lair and says: "So, those meddling
aliens return. How fortunate! (evil chuckle)"
orders his Predacons to go to their battle stations and decides
to spare Quickstrike for now.
At the Ark,
Rattrap asks Rhinox that if this thing is not a comet then what
is it? Rhinox says it's something he never thought he's see
again and calls Optimus.
autoguns open fire on the approaching entity (heading straight for
their base). The alien radiation disrupts the base's sentinel
and Megatron is forced to abandon base with his troops. The
entity smashes into the base causing an explosion which the Maximals
witness on their computer screens. Rattrap is happy, thinking
that the Predacons have been destroyed and the Beast Wars are over.
Rhinox confirms there is no reason to be happy as the entity which
destroyed the Predacon base is alien and its power readings are
off the scale. Blackarachnia says they're back, just like Tarantulas
always said they'd be.
recover from the explosion. Out from the flames of the destroyed
base comes a large fuzor. Part tiger, part hawk, the entity
announces itself as Tigerhawk, an emissary of the Vok. He
tells Megatron the Vok charge him with the willful destruction of
time and space and orders him to surrender. "Violence will
not be tolerated." Megatron refuses and orders his troops
to open fire. Tigerhawk gets rid of them by by causing a massive
energy storm which sucks up Waspinator, Inferno and Quickstrike.
He blows up Rampage and TM2 Dinobot with a huge blaster.
the Maximals and Rattrap says 'whatever he is, he's making
circuit salad out of the Preds'. Optimus, still serious, sends
Cheetor to the Predacons but tells him not to engage until he gets
there. Rattrap can't believe Optimus wants to help Megatron.
The Maximal leader reminds him that Megatron is carrying the spark
of the original Megatron and if he is destroyed there will be a
time storm that could wipe out Cybertron as they know it.
Blackarachnia tells Rattrap that when it is finished with the Predacons,
'where do you think it's coming next?' Rattrap is disappointed.
Tigerhawk gives Megatron a final chance to surrender,
but he refuses and the two engage in a battle. Cheetor arrives
on the scene and looks up in awe at the aerial battle. Suddenly,
Tarantulas appears and throws an energon web over the catbot, causing
him to sleep. The battle ranges on, but Tigerhawk is the victor
and he knocks the tyrant unconscious to the ground. Tarantulas
plans to do something, but pauses when Optimus arrives on the scene.
Tigerhawk is not aggressive towards Optimus and says he will speak
with Optimus after he has destroyed Megatron. Optimus tells
him if he destroys him he will make things worse. Tigerhawk replies
that interference will not be tolerated and with his immense power,
he opens a crack in the ground and Optimus falls in. He closes
the crack and prepares to destroy Megatron. Just then, an
army of cyber bugs attack him, causing his systems to shut down.
He goes into stasis lock and Tarantulas appears beside him, declaring:
"Now. You're. Mine." (evil cackle)
Later, Megatron awakens and flies off. Below,
Cheetor has a curious vision of Tigatron and Airazor. He watches
them join sparks and become one bright spark. The spark flies
off and is replaced by a flying Vok, coming towards him. Cheetor
screams and wakes up. But there in front of him is the spark!
It shoots off and he follows it.
We have a brief glance of Optimus' fist punching
through the ground.
Meanwhile, Tarantulas has Tigerhawk stuck in an
energy web. He tells Tigerhawk he will turn a ray onto him
which will destroy the alien influence in him and then he will serve
Cheetor follows the spark into a cave that leads
to Tarantulas' lair. As he enters, he hears Tarantulas' evil
Tigerhawk assures Tarantulas he will never serve
someone as evil as Tarantulas. Tarantulas tells him he has
little choice. He will use him to deal with the Maximals while
he destroys the Ark. Tigerhawk says such an action would cause
a time storm that would wipe out his entire race. Tarantulas
confirms that only those descended from Autobot and Decepticon will
be affected, but he and the Tripredicus Council have different origin.
Under their rule, Cybertron will conquer the Universe. "You're
insane," Tigerhawk growls. Tarantulas certainly sounds
and looks insane as he lets out a maniacal laugh and does a little
jig. He then turns the ray onto Tigerhawk and fires.
He extracts the aliens from him, but he realizes too late that they
are slowly heading for him. He gets frightened and fires at
them, but his bullets go through their transparent forms.
They enter his body, and his volley of shots has hit the ray and
spun it around, so it now fires on Tarantulas! The intensity
of the ray causes Tarantulas to overheat and explode. Cheetor
arrives and rescues Tigerhawk. They both leave the cave just
in time as a huge explosion knocks them to the ground.
Cheetor come to and sees a concerned Optimus looking
over him. The two of them watch the spark hover over Tigerhawk's
limp form. Optimus asks what it is and Cheetor says 'old friends'.
The spark enters its new host and Tigerhawk awakens. He is
a little confused at first as to who, what and where he is but Optimus
and Cheetor clear it up for him. Tigerhawk remembers and the
three of them leave for the Ark, under the watchful eye of a hidden
