My house, DUH!!!
Welcome to another season of Regeneration One.

This season is fascinating to look back at, because unlike the first season, the tone is much darker and the characters start dealing with personal struggles and insecurities. The previous season was more of a "getting the hang of it" affair, and after sailing through that, I decided to challenge myself writing something that I've really never done before, since I mainly am comfortable with off-the-wall stuff, but I thought that it might make for an interesting experience.

And it was really challenging. In the previous seasons, the episodes were silly, but they had their moments of sadness. However, this time around, even the silly episodes seem to have issues for the characters to face. For example, Arcee having to deal with pressure due to taking over the leadership role from Rodimus, Minerva not being able to deal with Nightbeat's disappearance, Quake trying to convince both Autobots and Decepticons to help him set up a birthday party for his wife, Starscream having a surprise visit from his mother which leads to some rather touching moments, etc.

Another thing that is new to this season is the collaboration of my friend Pete LeBrun. He had previously helped me to write some scripts, and because of that, he got the task of writing a script for this fic all by himself.

So yeah, this is the season where I start pushing the envelope, and I always try to write the next script to be better than the previous, but no matter how hard you try, sometimes there will be some stinkers in-between. But I'll let you be the judge of that when you read them.

Here's the episode list for this season:

Disappearance
Leadership Takeover
Enter Circuit Breaker, Part 1
Enter Circuit Breaker, Part 2
Quake Loves Lucy
Down on the Bayou (written by my friend Pete)
Dealing with Pain
Sacrifice, Part 1
Sacrifice, Part 2
Sacrifice, Part 3
Mama Screamer
Junk TV
Rescue

Now sit back and enjoy the second season of The Transformers: Regeneration One.

NOTE: All characters belong to Hasbro and TakaraTomy.

For people who are just starting to read, here's the first season:

ACT ONE

FADE IN

AUTOBOT BASE – BRIEFING ROOM

We see some Autobots in the briefing room. They seem to be talking about their everyday lives. We see MINERVA talking to STRONGARM while SIDE BURN talks to DAYTONUS and HOSEHEAD is having a chat with REV.

MINERVA
(excited, to STRONGARM)
Golly, he’s so dreamy!!!

STRONGARM
(excited, replying to MINERVA)
He sure is!!!!

HOSEHEAD
(to REV)
Next time ya hear the alarm go off, don’t go back for seconds, capisce???!!!

SIDE BURN
(to DAYTONUS)
You gotta tell me, how’d you score with her???!!!

DAYTONUS
(to SIDE BURN)
Eyyyyy, ya just have ta be yourself.

We then see ARCEE at TELETRAAN-I. She’s talking to RODIMUS, who is on a mission in space along with NIGHTBEAT.

ARCEE
(to RODIMUS)
How long until you finish with the mission???

RODIMUS
Oh, we just have one more section of the asteroid to check. The old alien said that there’s a rare form of Energon in this asteroid and the ‘cons would do anything in order to get it.

NIGHTBEAT
(off-screen, to RODIMUS)
Uh, Roddy???!!! We got company!!!!

RODIMUS
(to ARCEE)
We just found the ‘cons. The old alien was right. We’ll be back after we kick their afterburners!!!

ARCEE
(to RODIMUS)
Be safe, my love.

RODIMUS
(winking, to ARCEE)
Sure thing.

The transmission ends. ARCEE heads towards her room. She is relieved to know that RODIMUS is fine... for now. We see that something is bothering her, as if she will never be able to see her beloved after this moment.

FADE IN TO

SPACE – PLANET QUINTESSA

This is Quintessa, a planet with a very strange shape. The QUINTESSONS dominate this planet. They’re the most cold-hearted and ruthless beings in the universe. They’re also the proud owners of the merciless and savage SHARKTICONS. Built by JHIAXUS, the SHARKTICONS are the main executioners for the QUINTESSONS. We then see three strange looking tentacled aliens travelling on beams of energy. They’re the QUINTESSON judges. They have five-sided heads, each side with a different face... including the face of death!!! They are talking to a shadowy figure on a monitor.

QUINTESSON #1
(to the shadowy figure on the monitor)
The Decepticons have finally arrived at the asteroid.

JHIAXUS
(through filter)
Excellent, when they engage in combat, you know what to do!!!!

QUINTESSON #2
(to JHIAXUS)
The holographic image is set. We’ll also use this tractor beam to bring the Transformers here!!!

QUINTESSON #3
And when they arrive, we’ll send the Sharkticons to capture them.

JHIAXUS
(to the QUINTESSON judges)
Remember, I need those Transformers alive for experimentation. You can keep one of them for your own amusement, but when you dismantle the rest, don’t rip their spark chamber out. They need to feel everything that is being done to their miserable bodies, and the greatest part of all…they won’t be able to do anything about it!!!! Heheheheheheheheheheh!!!!

FADE IN TO

ASTEROID X – THE DECEPTICON SHIP

We see the Decepticon ship landing on Asteroid X. Then, we see SHOCKWAVE and TANKOR coming out of the ship.

SHOCKWAVE
(giving orders to TANKOR)
Remember that we’re here to collect Energon X. If there are any Autobots around, terminate them immediately.

TANKOR
(with fury)
TANKOR SMASH PUNY AUTOBOTS!!!! TANKOR CRUSH PUNY AUTOBOTS INTO PULP!!!!!

SHOCKWAVE and TANKOR head toward the Energon X mine, but RODIMUS and NIGHTBEAT jump on them. NIGHTBEAT lands on SHOCKWAVE while RODIMUS lands on TANKOR.

RODIMUS, NIGHTBEAT
(in unison)
SURPRISE!!!!

SHOCKWAVE, TANKOR
(in unison)
OOOOOOOOOF!!!!

Then, SHOCKWAVE and NIGHTBEAT start fighting like street brawlers, while RODIMUS draws SPRINGER’S sword while facing TANKOR.

TANKOR
(furious)
TANKOR SMASH “AUTOBOSS”!!!!

RODIMUS
“Autoboss”???!!! That not very creative!!!!

TANKOR then draws some saws that were concealed in his forearms and he starts clashing with RODIMUS. The two opponents clash sword and saws while SHOCKWAVE and NIGHTBEAT keep punching each other. NIGHTBEAT evades a punch and then sends SHOCKWAVE flying off with a powerful uppercut.

NIGHTBEAT
(to SHOCKWAVE)
You’re not so tough now, are ya???!!!

FADE IN TO

THE AUTOBOT BASE – HALL

We see BUMBLEBEE running through the hall holding a sheet of paper. He seems totally worried. He goes past SMOKESCREEN, WHEELJACK and SIREN.

WHEELJACK
(to BUMBLEBEE)
Hey, ‘Bee!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(to BUMBLEBEE)
What’s the hurry???!!!

SIREN
(to BUMBLEBEE)
Ya forgot somethang???!!!!

BUMBLEBEE
(to the three Autobots)
Sorry, guys. I can’t stay and chat. It’s an urgent matter!!!

BUMBLEBEE heads toward the briefing room. ARCEE, MINERVA, REV, DAYTONUS and DRIFT are in the room. BUMBLEBEE then stops and delivers his report.

BUMBLEBEE
(panting)
Guys!!! I just got this reading from Asteroid X!!! There is an unstable energy field all around the Energon X mine!!!

ARCEE reacts in shock. She was pretty worried before, but now it seems that her worst fears are confirmed.

DRIFT
(calmly)
Unfortunately, we cannot go help them. Mr. Blackrock is at a meeting and he’s the only one who knows how to operate the Warp Gate.

REV
(impatiently)
C’mon!!! We can’t give up that easily!!! There’s gotta be a way to see what’s happening out there!!! If Shocky and Tanky are there, then their ship must be there!!!

ARCEE
But we can’t patch into the ship’s visual scanner!!!

Suddenly, DAYTONUS heads toward TELETRAAN-I, punches it and we see the fight at Asteroid X.

DAYTONUS
(immediately after punching TELETRAAN-I)
Ey!!!!

The Autobots then look at DAYTONUS, completely baffled and surprised.

REV
(to DAYTONUS)
Boy, remind me to have you fix my TV set!!!

Then, the Autobots see the battle on TELETRAAN-I. We see that RODIMUS and TANKOR keep clashing sword and saws while NIGHTBEAT and SHOCKWAVE keep brawling. However, we see that a black hole appears over the asteroid. The opponents stop clashing and look up in shock.

RODIMUS
(yelling)
NIGHTBEAT!!! WE GOTTA GET OUTTA HERE!!!!

Meanwhile, SHOCKWAVE contacts STARSCREAM.

SHOCKWAVE
(desperate)
STARSCREAM!!!! BRING IN THE SHIP!!!!

STARSCREAM
(through intercom, with false sympathy)
Sorry, boss!!! I can’t hear ya!!!!

SHOCKWAVE and TANKOR then get sucked into the black hole.

TANKOR
(roars while getting sucked into the black hole)

SHOCKWAVE
(screaming)
STAAAAAAAAAAARSCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!!!!!!!!!

RODIMUS and NIGHTBEAT keep running, but they’re suddenly pulled into the black hole as well.

RODIMUS, NIGHTBEAT
(screaming, in unison)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

Then, we look at the Autobots in the base, they react with shock at this latest occurrence.

ARCEE
(in shock, to herself)
No!!!!!

MINERVA holds back her tears. She has now seen two Autobots that meant a lot to her getting sucked into a black hole. NIGHTBEAT, the Autobot she loves, and RODIMUS, the Autobot she saw as her father figure.

MINERVA
(starting to cry)
No!!!! NO!!!!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THIS CAN’T BE!!!!!

DAYTONUS and BUMBLEBEE try to calm down MINERVA, but she starts crying.

MINERVA
(crying)
It should have been me instead of them!!!

DAYTONUS
(comforting MINERVA)
Ey, dudette. Don’t talk like that!!! There wus nothin’ we could do!!!!!

Then, we see ARCEE still looking at the monitor. We then see tears falling from her eyes. Then, DRIFT comes in and puts his hand on ARCEE’S shoulder and she turns and hugs him desperately, feeling completely helpless.

DRIFT
(trying to calm ARCEE down)
Do not worry. If they’re out there, we’ll find them.

We see that REV is angrily hitting a wall. He’s screaming in both anger and despair. We also see tears flowing from his eyes. This is a dark moment for the Autobots. However, for the Decepticons, this is a time for change. We see STARSCREAM addressing the Decepticons.

STARSCREAM
(to the Decepticons)
Okay, ya stupid bums!!!! Shockwave’s gone!!!! Dead!!!! He’s pushing up cyber-daisies!!!! He’s over!!! Finished!!!!
(noticing something strange)
Hey, wait a minute!!!!

Then, STARSCREAM looks at his script and sees his dialogue.

STARSCREAM
(speaking to the Decepticons)
Okay, ya pipsqueaks!!! Who put “He’s over!!! Finished!!!” on my script???!!! These types of one-liners are supposed to be delivered by that wretched nurse!!!!

We see KNOCK OUT whistling. We see that his hands are behind his back. He’s hiding something. We see that he’s holding some crayons in his hands.

STARSCREAM
(returning to his speech)
Oh, no matter!!! Anyway, Shockwave’s finally kicked Megatron’s bucket head!!!! And now, you’ll have to call me “boss”!!!!
(pointing his Null Ray blaster toward the Decepticons)
Does anyone dare to oppose me???!!!!

QUAKE, KNOCK OUT, THUNDERHOOF, ET AL
(gulp, in unison)

STARSCREAM
Good, then we can proceed with phase two: Vehicons, bring me some Energon X from the asteroid. According to the ship’s readings, the black hole has disappeared, but I don’t want to risk losing any of ya nincompoops, so I’m sending in some drones!!!

QUAKE
But jefe gritón, what do ya plan ta do wit’ the Energon X???

STARSCREAM
(smirking)
Oh, you’ll see…

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

QUINTESSA – JUNGLE

We see a portal opening in Quintessa’s Jungle. We then see RODIMUS, NIGHTBEAT, SHOCKWAVE and TANKOR come out of the portal and land on the ground.

RODIMUS, NIGHTBEAT, SHOCKWAVE, TANKOR
(in unison)
YAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!
(landing on the ground)
OOOOOOOOOOF!!!!!!!

Then, they all get up.

NIGHTBEAT
(to RODIMUS)
I know it’s cliché to ask this, but where are we???!!!

RODIMUS
(looking at some figures coming in)
Beats me, but I don’t think these guys are our friends!!!!

The SHARKTICONS approach the four Transformers cautiously and then, they violently jump on them and secure them with restraining energy bars. Then, they proceed to take them to their QUINTESSON masters. We then cut to a scene inside the QUINTESSON castle. The lead QUINTESSON then addresses the four Transformers.

QUINTESSON #1
Greetings.

SHOCKWAVE
Who are you???!!!

QUINTESSON #1
I will be your jury, judge and executioner.

NIGHTBEAT
I don’t like the sound of that.

QUINTESSON #1
(to the SHARKTICONS)
Sharkticons, take these three to their operating tables and restrain them.

The SHARKTICONS then take NIGHTBEAT, SHOCKWAVE and TANKOR into a room while RODIMUS starts talking with the QUINTESSON.

RODIMUS
(defiantly, to the QUINTESSON)
You’ll never get away with this, ya creep!!!

QUINTESSON #1
(chuckling emotionlessly)
Heheheheheh, we shall see about that.
(to the other SHARKTICONS)
Take this one into the torture chamber and cuff him to the wall.

SHARKTICONS
(doing a strange, high-pitched growl while nodding)

The SHARKTICONS then take RODIMUS into the torture chamber. Then, they cuff his arms and legs to the wall. He’s completely immobilized and helpless. Meanwhile we see the other Transformers being cuffed against some operating tables. However, another QUINTESSON comes in and orders the SHARKTICONS to take SHOCKWAVE and TANKOR inside a lab.

QUINTESSON #2
(to the SHARKTICONS, looking at SHOCKWAVE and TANKOR)
Take these two into the lab.
(looking at NIGHTBEAT)
We’ll deal with this one in the torture chamber, so his friend can see what we plan to do to him.

The SHARKTICONS then take SHOCKWAVE and TANKOR into the lab. TANKOR roars angrily, he’s struggling to get out, but the straps are too strong for him to break free from. SHOCKWAVE also tries to get out, but after attempting to do so he knows that it’s useless to escape. They’re both taken into the lab.

NIGHTBEAT
(to the QUINTESSON)
Whaddya plan to do with me???!!!

QUINTESSON #2
(showing the face of “laughter”, to NIGHTBEAT)
The same thing we’re doing to your enemies in there. The only difference being that your friend will get to see up close what will happen to you.

FADE IN TO

THE DECEPTICON SHIP – BRIEFING ROOM

We see the Battlechargers, THUNDERHOOF and SKY-BYTE talking to STARSCREAM

RUNABOUT
(excited, to STARSCREAM)
What’re yo orders, Boss Screamer???!!!!

RUNAMUCK
(excited, to STARSCREAM)
Yeah!!! We wanna kick some Autobot tailpipe!!!!

STARSCREAM
(to the Battlechargers)
I admire your enthusiasm. We’re gonna raid the Autobot Headquarters. Rodimus and Nightbeat were both sucked up into the black hole, so now, with the Autobots completely hopeless, as well as helpless, we can take over the world!!!!

THUNDERHOOF
(with a doubtful attitude)
And what if you is wrong???!!!

STARSCREAM
(ticked off, to THUNDERHOOF)
YOU DARE TO QUESTION ME????!!!!!

THUNDERHOOF
(covering his audio sensors)
Okay, okay, I get the message, jeez!!!

Then we hear a voice coming from a dark corner of the briefing room.

SKY-BYTE
(to the other Decepticons, coming out of a dark corner of the room)
I don’t care if we fail or succeed, as long as I get another shot at Drift. I’ve still got a score to settle with him.

STARSCREAM
(to SKY-BYTE, smirking)
Don’t worry, Sky-Byte. You’ll get your chance soon enough…

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

QUINTESSA – QUINTESSON TORTURE CHAMBER

We see RODIMUS cuffed to the wall, and then we see SHARKTICONS carrying something on two operating tables. They’re carrying the dismantled pieces of TANKOR and SHOCKWAVE. We see their limbs lying on different parts of their respective operating tables and their heads on the center of each table, lying right beside their bodies. RODIMUS looks at their severed pieces with shock. Then, one of the QUINTESSONS comes in.

RODIMUS
(shocked, looking at the pieces of TANKOR and SHOCKWAVE)
PRIMUS!!!!
(angrily, to the QUINTESSON)
Listen, you five headed creep!!! Those guys may have been my enemies, but you’ve got no right to do this to them!!!!

QUINTESSON #3
(without a speck of emotion, to RODIMUS)
My only response to you is this: we don’t care!!!
(to the SHARKTICONS)
Bring in the other prisoner.

The SHARKTICONS come in with an operating table. NIGHTBEAT is strapped onto this operating table.

NIGHTBEAT
(trying to get out)
When I get my hands on you, you’ll be extremely sorry!!!!!
(looking at RODIMUS)
Roddy!!!! These guys didn’t do anything to ya, did they???!!!

QUINTESSON #3
(to NIGHTBEAT)
You should be more concerned with what we’re going to do to you!!!
(to the SHARKTICONS)
Sharkticons, I need my tools.

The SHARKTICONS then bring in saws and scalpels for their QUINTESSON master.

QUINTESSON #3
(to NIGHTBEAT)
Now, you’ll experience an enormous amount of pain. We won’t kill you; we’ll just disassemble you like we did with your enemies. You’ll be aware of your condition, but you won’t be able to do anything about it.

RODIMUS reacts to the QUINTESSON’S words with shock. He then tries to reason with him.

RODIMUS
(desperate, to the QUINTESSON)
No, please!!! LEAVE HIM ALONE!!! Dismantle me instead!!!!

The QUINTESSON doesn’t pay attention to RODIMUS’ pleas and activates his saw. NIGHTBEAT then speaks to RODIMUS.

NIGHTBEAT
(with determination, to RODIMUS)
Roddy!!! No matter what happens to me, promise me that you’ll keep goin’!!!!

Then, just as the QUINTESSON’S saw gets closer to NIGHTBEAT’S body, we cut to a shot outside the castle, and we hear a horrific gut-wrenching scream coming from the torture chamber.

NIGHTBEAT
(screaming painfully)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

FADE IN TO

THE AUTOBOT BASE – BRIEFING ROOM

We see the Autobots in the briefing room. They feel completely useless and helpless. We see DAYTONUS leaning against a wall with a doubtful expression. BUMBLEBEE is sitting on the floor, looking totally insecure. MINERVA is in her repair bay. She’s looking at a picture of her and NIGHTBEAT and she starts crying. SIREN and the rest put pictures of RODIMUS and NIGHTBEAT on a wall and salute them. ARCEE is looking up at the sky with a sad expression on her face.

ARCEE
(with a sad tone, looking up at the sky)
Wherever you guys are, we’ll find you!!! I promise that nothing will stand in our way!!!

FADE IN TO

OREGON – DESERT

The Decepticon ship has landed in the Oregon desert. We then see STARSCREAM addressing the Decepticons.

STARSCREAM
(with an authoritative tone)
Fellow Decepticons!!! Today, we’ll finally be able to destroy our accursed Autobot enemies!!! This will be a historic moment!!! We will rule the galaxy forever!!!!!!

RUNABOUT, RUNAMUCK, KNOCK OUT, THUNDERHOOF, ET AL
(cheering)

STARSCREAM
(with an authoritative tone)
SCRAMBLE!!!!

The Decepticons then transform into vehicle mode and head to the Autobot Base with aggressive determination.

ACT ONE

FADE IN

AUTOBOT BASE – HALL

We see BUMBLEBEE desperately running through the hall. He’s heading to DAYTONUS’ room. He enters the room, and we see DAYTONUS looking at pictures hanging on his wall. They’re pictures of all the girls he’s dated. We see that he also has pictures of ARCEE, MINERVA and STRONGARM!!! BUMBLEBEE comes in and frantically tries to warn him about something.

BUMBLEBEE
(desperate)
Hey, Daytonus!!!

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude)
Ey, ‘Bee!!! ‘Bout time you started hanging with the Fonz-Tonus!!! Come here and check this out!!!

BUMBLEBEE
(desperate)
Daytonus, please…!!!!

DAYTONUS
(interrupting BUMBLEBEE, with a cool attitude)
Ya see this chick over here???!!! Tha’s Andromeda!!! Now you…

BUMBLEBEE
(interrupting DAYTONUS)
Daytonus!!! WILL YA SHUT UP???!!!!

DAYTONUS
(getting angry, grabbing BUMBLEBEE by the shoulders)
Daytonus, shut up???!!! DAYTONUS SHUT UP???!!!! Why dontcha say “Daytonus, would ya remove all my teet’”, it’s the same result!!!!

BUMBLEBEE
(threatened)
I got something important to tell ya!!!

DAYTONUS
(letting BUMBLEBEE go, cooling off)
There is nuthin’ more important than my chicks!!!

BUMBLEBEE
The ‘cons are coming over in attack formation!!!

DAYTONUS
(in a fraction of a second)
Tha’s way more important than my chicks!!!

DAYTONUS runs to one of his walls, punches it and the alarm goes off. Then, all of the Autobots get out of their rooms and head to the briefing room.

SIREN
(annoyed)
Say, what tha heck’s goin’ on here!!!??? I was takin’ a stasis nap!!!!!

BUMBLEBEE
(to SIREN)
The ‘cons are comin’!!!

DAYTONUS comes in and punches TELETRAAN-I and we get a visual of STARSCREAM leading the Decepticon army.

HOSEHEAD
(worried)
Holy scrap!!! Without Rodimus and Nightbeat, what chance do we have against an army of ‘cons???!!!

SIREN
(to ARCEE)
Well, Arcee. You’re the boss now, so what do we do about this???

ARCEE
(insecure)
I never thought this day would come… the day where Rodimus would not be able to lead us. I’m not ready for this.
(with an inspiring tone)
But I know that Rodimus and Nightbeat would have wanted us to fight on, no matter how bad the odds are!!! If we fall today, let it be on the battlefield, not in front of a ‘con firing squad!!! Let the battle be joined!!!

ARCEE’S words have a big impact of the Autobots. The Autobots then start cheering and preparing for battle.

AUTOBOTS
(in unison, inspired)
TILL ALL ARE ONE!!!

FADE IN TO

QUINTESSON CASTLE – TORTURE CHAMBER

We see RODIMUS cuffed to the torture chamber’s wall. He has an expression of hopelessness and despair on his face. We also see that the QUINTESSON has just finished dismantling NIGHTBEAT. RODIMUS has seen it all, and it has shattered his confidence and his mind. The QUINTESSON then switches to the face of rage and starts talking.

QUINTESSON #3
(showing the face of rage)
Now, if you don’t tell us where your friends are, you’ll be held in contempt of our court!!!

RODIMUS
(angrily)
I have nothing but contempt for you and your court!!!

QUINTESSON #3
(chuckling, showing the face of laughter)
Heheheheheheh, I knew you wouldn’t be cooperative, but it doesn’t matter. We just ask because we enjoy doing interrogations, but we already know where your friends are. They’re on Earth, located in Oregon.

RODIMUS
(angry)
You won’t get away with this!!!

QUINTESSON #3
But we already have, you just haven’t noticed it yet… hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

The QUINTESSON then grabs a strange device from his tool tray and activates it. He then opens RODIMUS’ chest and starts torturing him.

RODIMUS
(being electrocuted by the device)
AGGHHHH!!! AAARRRRRRRRHHHH!!!

We then cut and see another QUINTESSON contacting someone while we hear RODIMUS screaming in pain in the background.

RODIMUS
(off-screen, in pain)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

QUINTESSON #1
(contacting JHIAXUS)
The prisoner is now being tortured just as you ordered.

JHIAXUS
Excellent!!! Now, out of all of his allies, is there anyone who could possibly foil my plans for the destruction of the old Cybertronian race???

QUINTESSON #1
There is one Autobot who could be a threat to your second generation rule, that subject is the Autobot Nurse Minerva. She’s young, but we feel that she has very strong determination which could ruin your plans.

JHIAXUS
You have done well, Quintesson. I cannot allow this nurse to interfere with the conquest of the planet. My men are constructing a laser that will destroy the entire population of Cybertron. Then, after the obsolete first generation of Transformers is wiped out, I will take my rightful place as the ruler of the second Cybertronian generation!!! But this nurse could very well ruin everything if we don’t do something about her!!!

QUINTESSON #1
I think I know who to trust with the task of eliminating this threat. I’ve heard of a professional killer who has never failed to deliver. He’s somewhat eccentric, but he’ll take care of Minerva… for a price.

JHIAXUS
Excellent, contact this professional killer and have him meet me here at the Manganese Mountains.

QUINTESSON #1
Yes, sir.

FADE IN TO

OREGON DESERT – AUTOBOT BASE

We see the Autobots standing outside the base, waiting for the Decepticons.

ARCEE
They should be here any moment.

Suddenly, the Autobots see a cloud of dust getting closer and closer. The time has come.

REV
Here they come!!!!

ARCEE
(with determination)
Okay, ‘bots, time to rock!!!

The Autobots stand tall and firm, ready to battle. Then we see STARSCREAM leading the Decepticons into battle.

STARSCREAM
(yelling authoritatively)
DECEPTICONS, ANNIHILATE THE AUTOBOTS!!!!!

Then, the Decepticons start clashing with the Autobots. We first see STRONGARM taking care of a CAR DRONE.

STRONGARM
(to the CAR DRONE)
You’re under arrest, Vehicon bum!!!

STRONGARM kicks the CAR DRONE and sends him flying through the air. We then see DAYTONUS carrying a machine gun and sending a large battalion of JET DRONES to Kingdom Come.

DAYTONUS
(to the deceased JET DRONES)
Tha’s how ya do it!!!

We see REV, SIDE BURN and HOSEHEAD ambushing some TANK DRONES.

REV
(taunting the TANK DRONES)
Oh, big boys!!!!!! Look out behind ya!!!!

The three recruits jump on the TANK DRONES and start hitting them with everything they’ve got.

SIDE BURN
(to one of the TANK DRONES)
Say good night, ya overgrown rustbucket!!!

SIDE BURN then kicks the TANK DRONE he’s engaging and the giant powerhouse falls to the ground. We then focus on SIREN, who’s wrestling with a TANK DRONE. We see that SIREN grabs the TANK DRONE’S head and starts banging it on a rock.

SIREN
(to the TANK DRONE)
You picked the wrong time to face me, ya big numbskull!!!

We then see SKY-BYTE heading towards DRIFT. The Autobot Ninja Master is ready for the challenge.

DRIFT
(to SKY-BYTE)
Once again, we honorably face each other in combat.

SKY-BYTE
(with a bombastic attitude, drawing a sword)
Prepare for your final battle!!!

SKY-BYTE and DRIFT then start clashing swords. The battle is getting more and more intense. We see QUAKE taking on SMOKESCREEN.

QUAKE
(taunting SMOKESCREEN)
You’re finished, vato!!!

QUAKE then proceeds to throw SMOKESCREEN to the ground. Then, he starts beating him up mercilessly. SIREN sees this and jumps on QUAKE.

SIREN
(jumping on QUAKE)
Nobody does that to mah buddy, conga-bot!!!

QUAKE
(trying to get SIREN off his back)
Get off me, ya bum!!!

Meanwhile, MINERVA is blasting some TANK DRONES. However we see that she gets shot from the back.

MINERVA
(in pain)
YAAAAAAAAARRRRRGHHHH!!!!!

Then, we see KNOCK OUT coming in, with his blaster smoking.

KNOCK OUT
(with a vengeful tone)
That’s for scratching my paint job the last time we met!!!

MINERVA tries to get up, but KNOCK OUT starts kicking her violently while she’s on the ground. ARCEE comes in and shoves KNOCK OUT aside.

KNOCK OUT
(kicking MINERVA)
TAKE THAT!!! AND THAT!!!! AND THAT!!!! AND…
(getting shoved by ARCEE)
YAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!

ARCEE then grabs MINERVA by the hand and the young nurse gets up.

MINERVA
(relieved)
Gee, thanks Arcee. That maniac was about to turn me into ‘bot pulp!!!

ARCEE
(to MINERVA)
No problem, Minerva. Seems like we’ll have to call in reinforcements.
(activating her intercom)
Arcee to Daytonus and Strongarm. We need assistance.

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude, through filter)
Eyyyyyy, no problem!!! I’ll snap my fingers and Agent Fowler will be here wit’ the cavalry in no time!!!

STRONGARM
(through filter)
And I’ll contact Inspector Shayne; he’ll bring in the cops to assist us.

ARCEE
(talking to her intercom)
Awesome, now, all we can do is wait. Arcee, over and out!!!

ARCEE and MINERVA then continue blasting Vehicons to oblivion.

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

AUTOBOT BASE – EXTERIOR

We see DAYTONUS heading towards a small hill near the base. When he gets to the top, he snaps his fingers and we hear the sound of jet engines and helicopter rotors heading towards the battle. It’s Agent FOWLER and the Air Force!!! FOWLER then talks to DAYTONUS through the intercom.

AGENT FOWLER
(to DAYTONUS, through intercom filter, with a sardonic attitude)
You snapped your fingers???!!!

DAYTONUS
(to FOWLER)
Get ‘em, Fowler-boy!!!!

We see FOWLER piloting a jet. He flies towards a TANK DRONE and blasts him into oblivion.

FOWLER
(after blasting the TANK DRONE, with a sardonic attitude)
He's dead!!! He's passed on!!! This Vehicon is no more!!! He has ceased to be!!! He's expired and gone to meet his maker!!! He's a stiff!!! Bereft of life, he rests in peace!!! If I hadn't pulverized him, he'd be pushing up the daisies!!! His metabolic processes are now history! He's off the twig! He's kicked the bucket; he's shuffled off his mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the dang choir invisible!!! THIS IS AN EX-VEHICON!!!

REV
(to FOWLER)
Hey, Fowler!!! Less references, more shootin’!!!!

Then we focus on STRONGARM communicating with Inspector SHAYNE.

STRONGARM
(talking to the intercom)
Inspector, we’re being attacked by some Deceptipunks and we need some assistance. Could you bring in your boys???!!!

SHAYNE
(through intercom)
We’ll be there.

We then see DAYTONUS running towards DRIFT and SKY-BYTE. DAYTONUS jumps on SKY-BYTE and the Decepticon Shark tries to shake him off his back.

DAYTONUS
(holding onto SKY-BYTE’S back)
Ey, I heard ‘bout jumpin’ the shark, but this is ridiculous!!!

SKY-BYTE
(trying to shake DAYTONUS off his back)
Get off me!!! When I get my hands on you…!!!!

Then, we see THUNDERHOOF charging towards WHEELJACK. WHEELJACK then jumps and kicks THUNDERHOOF in mid-air. THUNDERHOOF falls to the ground.

THUNDERHOOF
(falling to the ground)
EH-OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!!!!!!!

WHEELJACK
(to the unconscious THUNDERHOOF)
Sweet dreams, deerface!!!

Then, we see the Battlechargers heading towards WHEELJACK.

RUNABOUT
(excited, to RUNAMUCK)
Yo, how ‘bout we murderize that bum!!!!

RUNAMUCK
(excited, to RUNABOUT)
Yeah, yeah, let’s finish him!!!

However, we see that the Battlechargers are being blasted by someone off-screen.

RUNABOUT
(getting blasted)
Yo, who’s attackin’ us???!!!

RUNAMUCK
(looking and pointing at something)
Uh, Runabout???!!! AH think we better split!!!

We see that SHAYNE and the police have arrived and they’re carrying new weapons that the Autobots provided for the police in order to fight against the Decepticons. We then see STARSCREAM grabbing BUMBLEBEE and throwing him on top of MINERVA and SIDE BURN.

MINERVA, SIDE BURN, BUMBLEBEE
(crashing, in unison)
YOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!!!!!

Then, STARSCREAM starts gloating.

STARSCREAM
(gloating)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!!! Who dares challenge the might of Starscream???!!!!

ARCEE
(off-screen, with a defiant tone)
Might???!!! Now that’s something that you don’t have!!!!

STARSCREAM turns and sees ARCEE drawing a sword. STARSCREAM then grabs a sword from one of the fallen JET DRONES.

STARSCREAM
(to ARCEE)
C’mon down and face me!!!

ARCEE then jumps down and she starts clashing with STARSCREAM.

STARSCREAM
You pesky little Autobot, don’t you realize that this is the end???!!!

ARCEE
(defiantly, to STARSCREAM)
You really like to underestimate everyone, Starscream!!! Even after you’ve suffered a lot of humiliating defeats!!!

STARSCREAM
(annoyed)
That’s it!!! I’ll tear your spark to shreds!!!!!!!!

STARSCREAM then charges more violently towards ARCEE, but ARCEE manages to best him with a powerful kick to the groin.

STARSCREAM
(comically reacting to the kick to the groin)
OOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!
(limping and sounding higher than usual)
I’ll get you for this you accursed pinkbot!!!!

We see KNOCK OUT heading towards STARSCREAM and he starts talking to him.

KNOCK OUT
(desperate, to STARSCREAM)
We’re being torn to pieces!!!! What can we do???!!!!

STARSCREAM
Only one thing: take prisoners!!!

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

AUTOBOT BASE – EXTERIOR

We see STARSCREAM giving a fateful order to the Decepticons.

STARSCREAM
(authoritatively)
DECEPTICONS, PREPARE TO TAKE PRISONERS!!!!!

Then, the Decepticons hear STARSCREAM’S command and proceed to try and take some of the Autobots as prisoners. First, we see QUAKE, finally managing to get SIREN off of his back. KNOCK OUT comes in and blasts SIREN with a stun ray.

SIREN
(stunned)
BrLbrlBLRlrlrbBRLBRLrlb!!!!

SIREN falls into the ground, right beside SMOKESCREEN. Then, QUAKE gives KNOCK OUT an order.

QUAKE
(to KNOCK OUT)
Okay, cuñado. You take these two to the ship while I take care of another nuisance!!!

KNOCK OUT
(sardonically, taking SIREN and SMOKESCREEN)
Boy, since when did I become a delivery bot!!!???

QUAKE then heads toward ARCEE. She is blasting some Vehicons, but QUAKE jumps on her and beats her up mercilessly. Then, QUAKE takes ARCEE into the ship. We then see DAYTONUS still holding onto SKY-BYTE’S back, riding him like a horse. SKY-BYTE is even more desperate than he was before.

SKY-BYTE
(with comical desperation)
HELP ME!!!! THIS AUTOBOT DOESN’T WANT TO GET OFF!!!

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude)
Ey, stop being such a stubborn horse!!!

THUNDERHOOF comes in and blasts DAYTONUS. The cool teenage Autobot falls to the ground and they take him into the ship. We then see MINERVA, sneaking up on QUAKE. She jumps into the air and kicks his head off.

QUAKE
(his head flying off)
BABALÚUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!

Then, MINERVA tries to repair ARCEE. However, a shadow looms behind her.

MINERVA
(to ARCEE)
Don’t worry, Arcee. I’ll patch ya up in no time!!!
(looking at the shadow)
Uh-oh!!!

We see that the shadow belongs to STARSCREAM. He blasts MINERVA with his null ray blaster.

MINERVA
(getting hit by STARSCREAM’S null ray)
YOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW!!!!!
(struggling)
Can’t… move…

STARSCREAM
(with a mocking tone)
Of course you can’t. Thanks to my null ray, I’ll take my old nemesis Arcee into the ship, and you can’t do nothing about it!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!

STARSCREAM then carries the unconscious ARCEE in his arms while MINERVA, completely paralyzed by the null ray blast, looks on helplessly as the treacherous air commander takes the girl she considers her best friend and mother figure away.

MINERVA
(struggling helplessly)
Arcee!!! No!!!! I’ve… failed!!!

Then, STARSCREAM gives another fateful order.

STARSCREAM
(with an authoritative tone)
DECEPTICONS, RETREAT!!!!!

The Decepticons retreat and take ARCEE, SMOKESCREEN, SIREN and DAYTONUS to their ship. The Autobots look on, feeling totally useless.

STRONGARM
SCRAP!!!!

SIDE BURN
(feeling hopeless)
They took Arcee and Siren!!! Who will lead us now???!!!

Then, we see WHEELJACK, DRIFT, BUMBLEBEE, HOSEHEAD and REV coming in.

DRIFT
(calmly)
I saw them carrying four of our comrades, there is one missing.

BUMBLEBEE
Gee whiz, you’re right!!! Where’s Minerva???!!!

Suddenly, they all hear a groan coming out from under the hill. Then, they find MINERVA, still stunned by the null ray blast.

MINERVA
(groaning helplessly)
I’ve… failed…!!!

The other Autobots help her up and take her to safety.

MINERVA
(with guilt)
I didn’t want them to take her… but I couldn’t help her at all…

BUMBLEBEE
(cheering MINERVA up)
It wasn’t your fault, Minerva!!! There was nothing we could do about it.

DRIFT
(to MINERVA, with a fatherly tone)
We feel just as guilty as you, but do not despair. We’ll get them back.

MINERVA
(with a sad tone)
Golly, I really can’t believe it. First, Rodimus and Nightbeat are gone and now Arcee, Smokescreen, Siren and Daytonus are captured.

BUMBLEBEE and DRIFT look at each other with sad expressions. They understand that MINERVA feels insecure without RODIMUS, ARCEE and NIGHTBEAT by her side. Meanwhile, FOWLER’S plane lands and FOWLER comes out of it. We also see Inspector SHAYNE coming in.

SHAYNE
(with a sad tone, to the Autobots)
I’m sorry about your friends. I know how much they mean to ya.

FOWLER
(with determination)
We’ll assist you in every way we can.

DRIFT
Thanks, Inspector Shayne and Agent Fowler. And yes, we may need your help in our next course of action. But first, we have to check up on our damage levels, especially Minerva, who has to attend an unveiling at Blackrock Enterprises. But we’ll contact you as soon as we’re ready.

FOWLER
Best of luck, ‘bots!!! You’re gonna need it.

ACT ONE

FADE IN

OREGON DESERT – DECEPTICON SHIP

We see the Decepticon Ship in the Oregon desert. Then, we cut to a scene in KNOCK OUT’S repair bay. We see that KNOCK OUT is fixing QUAKE. He soon finishes repairing him.

KNOCK OUT
(with a jolly attitude)
Well, Quake. Your head is secured back in place.

QUAKE
Al fin!!! I was gettin’ tired of rollin’ on the ground!!!

KNOCK OUT
Let’s just hope you don’t get scrapped again!!! Now, if you’ll excuse me...

KNOCK OUT grabs one of QUAKE’S conga drums. QUAKE sees this and he starts chasing him.

QUAKE
(angrily standing up from his repair bed)
You vato!!! Come back here with my conga drum!!!

Then, QUAKE chases KNOCK OUT through the hall. Meanwhile, THUNDERHOOF and STARSCREAM are locking ARCEE, SIREN, DAYTONUS and SMOKESCREEN in their cells. The Autobots wake up and find themselves imprisoned.

DAYTONUS
Awww, scrap!!!

STARSCREAM
(with a jolly attitude)
Why hello, accursed Autobots!!! Did you sleep well???!!!

ARCEE
(defiantly, to STARSCREAM)
You’ll regret this, Screamer!!! Our fellow Autobots will come for us, and when they do...

STARSCREAM
(smirking, to ARCEE)
We’ll be ready for them!!! You see, we have an entire squadron of our Tank Drones all around the ship!!!

We see the TANK DRONES guarding the ship.

TANK DRONE
(like AHNOLD)
Preparing to TERMINEHT any threat.

We then cut back to the prison.

SIREN
(angry, to STARSCREAM)
I oughta pop ya one for this!!!

STARSCREAM
(smirking)
Heheheheheheh, save your energy, Siren. There is nothing you can do!!!! If your friends come, they’re in for some really painful and violent demises!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!!

THUNDERHOOF then comes in to report to STARSCREAM.

THUNDERHOOF
(to STARSCREAM)
EY-YO!!! Sorry ta interrupt yer gloating monologue, but we just got word dat Blackrock Enterprises is gonna unveil a new invention.

STARSCREAM
Are there any confirmed Autobot defenders???!!!

THUNDERHOOF
Just dat annoying NOYSE, but dat’s all!!!

ARCEE hears THUNDERHOOF’S words, and reacts with shock. She has an outburst of anger and desperation.

ARCEE
(angry, to STARSCREAM)
If you lay a finger on that girl, I’ll rip out your vocal processor!!!!

STARSCREAM
(with a mocking tone, to THUNDERHOOF)
Oh, look!!! She doesn’t want anything to happen to her little friend!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

THUNDERHOOF
(laughing)
Yeah, it’s just like a mama worryin’ ‘bout her little gal!!! HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!!!!

STARSCREAM
(to ARCEE)
Sorry, Arcee, but if she’s harmed, she had it comin’!!!
(to THUNDERHOOF)
Now, I must get those two idiotic fools to stop fighting over a conga drum of all things!!!

Then, we cut to QUAKE and KNOCK OUT, still fighting over the conga drum.

KNOCK OUT
(angry)
It’s mine now, and I’m gonna keep it!!!!

QUAKE
(furious)
Oh, no, you stupid tarado!!! Esta conga es mía y siempre lo será!!!!

KNOCK OUT
Mine!!!

QUAKE
Mía!!!

KNOCK OUT
MINE!!!

QUAKE
MÍA!!!!

Suddenly, STARSCREAM and THUNDERHOOF walk into the room and put a stop to KNOCK OUT’S and QUAKE’S childish bickering.

STARSCREAM
(angry, to QUAKE and KNOCK OUT)
STOP THIS NONSENSE, YA BUMS!!!! WE GOT WORK TO DO!!!

KNOCK OUT, QUAKE
(in unison, with an indifferent attitude)
What now???!!!!

STARSCREAM
We’re going to raid Blackrock Industries!!!!

KNOCK OUT, QUAKE
(in unison, disappointed)
AGAIN???!!!

STARSCREAM
(starting to lose his cool)
Look, if you incompetent bums don’t wanna go, you’ll have to face Thunderhoof!!!

We then see THUNDERHOOF punching his left palm with his right fist in a threatening manner. QUAKE and KNOCK OUT look at THUNDERHOOF with scared expressions and decide to go.

KNOCK OUT
(threatened)
Okay, okay, you made your point. We’re coming with you, as long as I get a chance to rip that wretched nurse apart for scratching my paint job!!!

STARSCREAM
(to KNOCK OUT)
Seems like you’re in luck today, ‘cause she’s the only Autobot guarding Blackrock’s new invention.

KNOCK OUT
(getting excited)
Really??!!! Then why didn’t you say so???!!! C’mon, Quake!!! It’s payback time!!!

QUAKE
(eagerly)
Yeah, I’m gonna beat that enfermera to the ground for being a pain in tha neck the last time we fought!!!

The Decepticons then exit the ship, transform to vehicle mode and head for Blackrock Enterprises.

FADE IN TO

BLACKROCK ENTERPRISES – HALL
We see MINERVA walking around the hall along with her friend, G.B. BLACKROCK’S secretary and lead engineer JOSIE BELLER. MINERVA looks very sad while JOSIE is trying to cheer her up.

MINERVA
(sad)
I feel so useless right now. If only Nightbeat, Arcee and Rodimus were here…

JOSIE
(cheering MINERVA up)
C’mon, Minerva. You can’t beat yourself up like that. You must understand that the time will come when you’ll have to face your own fears alone, without Rodimus and Arcee to guide you. But I know you will triumph over your fears ‘cause you’re that kinda girl!!!

MINERVA
(still feeling sad)
I really don’t know about that. I’m just filled with so many doubts right now. I mean, have you ever been afraid of something that you really don’t want to experience???

JOSIE
Well, let’s just say that if I had to face the ‘cons head on, without anybody to help me, then I would be really afraid.

MINERVA
Golly!!! That would be really terrifying!!!

JOSIE
Yeah, especially if you’re a human!!!
(looking at the door)
Oh, look!!! The unveiling is about to start!!!

MINERVA
(excited)
Gee, I can’t wait!!!

MINERVA and JOSIE get into the meeting room while G.B. BLACKROCK is addressing his business partners. We also see LAURA WINSLOW, reporter for G-WIZ News, taking notes on everything that BLACKROCK is saying. We also see SPARKPLUG WITWICKY in the audience, wearing a very stylish suit with a tie. BLACKROCK reveals his new invention: a new computerized power suit.

BLACKROCK
(unveiling the suit)
And here, ladies and gentlemen, you have the new Blackrock Computerized Battle Suit!!! It can grant whoever wears it the power to shoot electricity, disrupt circuitry and fly.

LAURA raises her hand and BLACKROCK notices her.

BLACKROCK
(with a charming attitude, to LAURA)
Yes, Miss Winslow???!!!

LAURA
How much time did it take to create the suit and install all of its powerful abilities???!!!

BLACKROCK
Well, it was a really long and complex procedure…

While BLACKROCK is talking about how much time it took to create the suit, JOSIE and MINERVA are whispering to each other.

JOSIE
(whispering)
Now here you have something that would really make me really fearful: being in a skimpy suit like that for the rest of my life!!!

MINERVA
(whispering)
Golly!!!

BLACKROCK
(to LAURA)
…Making this suit took us five years, while adding all of the upgrades took us two more years.

LAURA
(surprised)
Gosh, that’s seven years of hard work!!!

BLACKROCK
They were indeed, Miss Winslow.
(looking at the rest of the audience)
Any more questions???!!!

HERB ROSENTHAL, one of BLACKROCK’S business partners raises his hand.

BLACKROCK
(looking at ROSENTHAL)
Yes, Mr. Rosenthal???!!!

ROSENTHAL
I was wondering if you considered the possibility of—
(being interrupted by a sound)
What’s that???!!!

Suddenly, STARSCREAM, KNOCK OUT, QUAKE and THUNDERHOOF destroy one of the walls and enter the meeting room.

STARSCREAM
(smirking)
Hello, Mr. Blackrock!!! We’ve come for your suit, and for your lone Autobot defender!!!

MINERVA
(with determination, to STARSCREAM)
You’ll have to try and catch me first!!!!

Meanwhile, JOSIE is heading towards a computer and tries to activate the alarm, while LAURA runs from the room and heads toward a telephone booth. She starts calling her office, and we hear the gruff voice of TEDDY WILSON, editor of G-WIZ News, coming through the phone.

WILSON
(through the phone)
Wilson here.

LAURA
Listen, chief!!! I…

WILSON
(yelling)
DON’T CALL ME CHIEF!!!

LAURA
Sorry, Mr. Wilson, but this is important!!! The Decepticons are attacking Blackrock Enterprises!!!!

WILSON
Stay there and cover it!!! This will make the evening news!!!!

LAURA
(with a playful soldier tone)
Yes, sir!!! I’ll be back at the station with a special news bulletin!!!

Meanwhile, THUNDERHOOF, KNOCK OUT and QUAKE throw MINERVA to the ground, while STARSCREAM walks towards G.B. BLACKROCK and the new suit. STARSCREAM doesn’t seem to notice that there are some cables lying on the ground and he trips on one of them.

STARSCREAM
(tripping)
YOWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!

STARSCREAM falls to the ground and he accidentally fires his null ray blaster!!! The blast hits JOSIE and the computer she’s using. We hear a horrific scream coming from JOSIE.

JOSIE
(in pain)
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

MINERVA
(desperate)
JOSIE!!!!!

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

BLACKROCK ENTERPRISES – BRIEFING ROOM

We see JOSIE being overloaded with electricity from the computer. The explosion engulfs her and she falls to the ground unconscious. We see BLACKROCK desperately running to JOSIE’S aid.

BLACKROCK
(desperate)
JOSIE!!!!

We also see LAURA and SPARKPLUG running to JOSIE’S aid. LAURA is completely shocked by this latest occurrence. MINERVA then desperately shoves the Decepticons that are engaging her aside and runs towards JOSIE. Meanwhile, STARSCREAM gets up and gives an order.

STARSCREAM
DECEPTICONS, RETREAT!!!!

KNOCK OUT
(frustrated, to STARSCREAM)
Some leader you turned out to be, Starscream!!!!

The Decepticons retreat with all haste. Meanwhile, we see the unconscious body of JOSIE being surrounded by BLACKROCK, LAURA and MINERVA. LAURA has a sad expression on her face while MINERVA and BLACKROCK are crying.

MINERVA
(crying)
Why is this happening???!!!! WHY???!!!!!

MINERVA then punches the ground, feeling completely defenseless and useless. First, NIGHTBEAT and RODIMUS were abducted; then, the Decepticons captured ARCEE, DAYTONUS, SIREN and SMOKESCREEN; and now, her friend JOSIE is lying on the ground, showing no signs of life. ROSENTHAL comes in and puts his hand on BLACKROCK’S shoulder.

ROSENTHAL
(with a sad tone)
I’m really sorry, G.B. I know how much Josie meant for you.

MINERVA then transforms to vehicle mode and opens one of her doors.

MINERVA
(with a sad tone)
I’ll take her to the hospital.

ROSENTHAL and SPARKPLUG put JOSIE in MINERVA’S driver seat and fasten her seatbelt. MINERVA then closes her door and drives off. LAURA and SPARKPLUG look at MINERVA with sad expressions.

LAURA
(concerned)
Poor Minerva!!! She’s really taking this hard.

SPARKPLUG
(with a sad tone)
Yeah. Ever since Nightbeat and Rodimus vanished, she has been suffering so much. She’s also being really hard on herself, what with her feeling responsible for everything that has happened lately. It’s really sad to see such a youthful, energetic and kind soul emotionally shattering before your very eyes.

We then see ROSENTHAL still comforting the emotionally shattered BLACKROCK. For BLACKROCK, JOSIE was more than a simple secretary and designer, she was like the daughter he never had. Meanwhile, we see MINERVA driving to the Portland Hospital. She goes to the emergency parking zone and some assistants come out with a stretcher and take JOSIE into a room. We fade in to a scene that takes place hours later in which JOSIE is being examined by Dr. DENNIS MADISON. Dr. MADISON then comes out of the room and starts talking to BLACKROCK and ROSENTHAL.

BLACKROCK
(worried)
Is there any improvement, Dr. Madison???

MADISON
The girl will live, but there’s been severe damage to her nervous system. She’s paralyzed for life.

BLACKROCK now looks incredibly dismayed. ROSENTHAL then asks something.

ROSENTHAL
(to MADISON)
Doctor, is there any way we can revive her brain??? Like say, putting her in a special suit???

MADISON
Hmmmm, it could work, but there’s no suit that can cure paralysis.

BLACKROCK
I think there is, Doc. I recently unveiled my Computerized Battle Suit. If we infused it into Josie, she may be able to wake up and move again.

MADISON
It’s worth a try. But we’ll need Minerva for this procedure.

FADE IN TO

THE AUTOBOT BASE – BRIEFING ROOM

We see BLACKROCK talking to MINERVA. She seems unsure about what she has to do.

MINERVA
(insecure)
I dunno, Mr. Blackrock. What if I accidentally kill Josie???!!!

BLACKROCK
That’s why I’m asking you. I know you will succeed.

MINERVA
You’re too kind, but I still don’t know. Before she got electrocuted, Josie told me that one of her worst fears was being trapped in a suit like that forever. So I’m not only concerned about killing her, but on how she’ll react when she wakes up.

BLACKROCK
Wow, I didn’t know Josie would be afraid about something like that. But still, it has to be done. It’s the only way that we’ll ever be able to bring Josie back.

MINERVA has her doubts for a while, but then she turns around, completely determined to revive her friend.

MINERVA
(with determination)
Let’s do it!!!

FADE IN TO

THE HOSPITAL – SPECIAL OPERATING ROOM

We see JOSIE on the operating table. She’s wearing the skimpy Computerized Battle Suit. MINERVA is getting ready to fuse the suit to JOSIE’S body. Dr. MADISON comes in and gives a fateful order.

MADISON
Okay, let the operation begin.

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

DECEPTICON SHIP – THE HALL

We see KNOCK OUT and QUAKE walking around the hall. They’re totally frustrated about their most recent assault.

QUAKE
(frustrated)
This is really frustrating!!!!! We just wanted to beat that enfermera to the ground and el jefe gritón says retirada!!!!

KNOCK OUT
(frustrated)
Yeah, his leadership so far has been a total disaster!!! He’s been eating all of our Energon!!!

We then see the captured Autobots in the prison. They’re listening to LAURA’S news bulletin.

LAURA
(through the TV)
This is Laura Winslow for G-WIZ News. Josie Beller, secretary and lead designer for Blackrock Industries, has been injured during an unveiling ceremony. The ceremony was raided by Decepticons. One of them, apparently the leader, clumsily tripped on a wire and blasted the young secretary. Miss Beller is now in Intensive Care at the Portland Hospital.

ARCEE
(sad, after hearing the bulletin)
The ‘cons will pay for this, Josie!!! That’s a promise!!!

FADE IN TO

THE HOSPITAL – SPECIAL OPERATING ROOM

We see MINERVA preparing to fuse the suit with JOSIE’S body. We see that she’s starting from the feet and legs. She fuses the suit to JOSIE’S feet and they react to the fusion.

MINERVA
(worried about JOSIE’S convulsion)
Golly!!!

MADISON
It’s working. If she reacts like that, it’s a sign of hope.

MINERVA then proceeds to fuse the suit to JOSIE’S legs. She has the same reaction to the fusion. Then, we see a montage of her working hard on fusing the rest of the suit to JOSIE’S body. We also see that MINERVA sips a little glass of Energon to cool her anxiety a little bit. She has repaired a lot of Autobots before this, but she had never before operated on a human, especially in such an experimental way.

MINERVA
(exhausted)
Golly gee whiz!!! This is tough!!!!

Then, MINERVA proceeds to fuse the suit to JOSIE’S shoulders. After getting the same convulsive response, she proceeds to fuse the suit to JOSIE’S arms, hands and fingers. The fingers are too small for MINERVA to fuse, so Dr. MADISON takes over briefly. Then, after MADISON finishes attaching them to JOSIE’S fingers, MINERVA then proceeds to fuse the suit with JOSIE’S neck. And finally, MINERVA fuses a special headpiece which will allow JOSIE to revive. This headpiece wasn’t part of the original suit; but it was specially designed for JOSIE. Afterwards, the operation ends.

MINERVA
Now, we must wait for her to wake up.

Meanwhile, BLACKROCK and ROSENTHAL are waiting outside the operating room. Then, Dr. MADISON comes out of the room and starts talking to BLACKROCK.

MADISON
(to BLACKROCK)
Mr. Blackrock, the operation was a complete success. We just have to wait for her to wake up.

BLACKROCK
(relieved)
Thank God!!!!

MINERVA is still waiting anxiously in the operating room. Suddenly, we see that JOSIE has started moving. JOSIE opens her eyes and sees MINERVA.

JOSIE
(waking up)
Uh, Minerva???!!!

MINERVA then turns around looks at JOSIE.

MINERVA
(emotional)
Josie!!!! Oh, Josie!!!! You’re alive!!!

JOSIE
(somewhat dizzy)
I feel strange, what happened to me???!!!

Suddenly, JOSIE looks at her hands and notices some strange metallic devices fused with them. Then, she looks at her body and reacts with shock!!!

MINERVA
(with a sad tone)
You got electrocuted when Starscream blasted the computer. Dr. Madison said that we had no choice but to fuse the suit with your body in order to bring you back.

We see tears coming out of JOSIE’S eyes. She’s also trembling. Suddenly, she starts blasting stuff around the room.

JOSIE
(feeling hopeless)
No!!!! NO!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

MINERVA
(trying to calm JOSIE down)
Josie, wait--!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGHHHHHH!!!!!

JOSIE accidentally blasts MINERVA’S knee. JOSIE notices what she has done, and is wracked with guilt.

JOSIE
(afraid)
Oh no, what have I done???!!!

JOSIE then proceeds to blast a wall and flies off. She feels completely frightened and helpless. BLACKROCK, MADISON and ROSENTHAL walk into the room and see a big hole in the wall and MINERVA repairing her own knee.

MADISON
(in shock)
What happened???!!!

MINERVA
Josie escaped. I’ve gotta find her and try to reason with her.

ROSENTHAL
But she just blasted your knee!!!

MINERVA
She’s afraid; she told me personally that she didn’t want this to happen. But now, it seems that I’ll have to help her, no matter what happens.

ACT ONE

FADE IN

OREGON – THE DESERT

We see JOSIE in her suit flying to the desert. She’s yelling and crying while blasting holes around the terrain. She’s also frightened that she can’t control her new powers. We then see MINERVA driving around the desert. She has tracked the energy readings from JOSIE’S computerized suit. MINERVA then transforms to robot mode and tries to talk with JOSIE.

MINERVA
(trying to reason with JOSIE)
Josie, wait!!! I need to talk to ya!!! I know you didn’t want to blast my knee, it was an accident. You know how guilty I feel about this and I understand how you feel. You’re afraid, just like me. A girl once told me that the time will come when I’ll have to face my own fears alone.

JOSIE then lands on the ground, with tears rolling down her face, still feeling afraid.

JOSIE
(crying)
But I’m not like you. You’re enthusiastic, kind and determined.

MINERVA
(warmly)
Don’t put yourself down. You’re a great girl. You’re smart, caring and selfless. You’re my friend, I enjoy being with you. Mr. Blackrock loves you, he always considered you to be a part of his family. That’s why he had no choice but to fuse the suit to your body. He didn’t want to see you in a hospital bed for the rest of your life.

JOSIE
(crying)
But I’m so terrified!!! I can’t control my powers!!! Nobody will want to be with me now!!!

MINERVA
I want to be with you, and I also want to help you in any way I can. As for your powers, I know a friend who can teach you how to control them.

JOSIE calms down a little bit, but she still feels afraid.

JOSIE
(calming down)
It seems like I don’t have any choice.

MINERVA transforms into vehicle mode and JOSIE gets inside. They head to an abandoned monastery. Inside the monastery, we see DRIFT meditating along with HOSEHEAD, REV and SIDE BURN. MINERVA and JOSIE arrive and DRIFT welcomes them warmly.

DRIFT
(to his students)
Keep meditating, my wards.
(to MINERVA and JOSIE)
I’ve been waiting for you.

MINERVA
Drift, Josie needs your help. You see, she had an accident and we had to fuse Mr. Blackrock’s computerized suit with her body. However, she’s frightened, it’s too much for her to take in all at once and she can’t control her powers.

DRIFT
(warmly)
I’ll take care of her.

MINERVA
Thanks, Drift.
(with a sad tone)
I know you’ll take better care of her, much better than I did.

DRIFT
(warmly, to MINERVA)
Do not speak ill of yourself, young one. You did everything you could.
(to JOSIE)
Now, Miss Beller, you shall become my new student.

JOSIE then bows her head to DRIFT.

JOSIE
(with respect)
Thank you, Master Drift.

Then, HOSEHEAD, SIDE BURN and REV come in and meet their new training partner.

REV
(to HOSEHEAD and SIDE BURN)
Whoa, so this is Daytonus’ replacement???!!! This... really ain’t that bad!!!

SIDE BURN
(to REV)
I think she’s pretty hot!!!
(with a seductive attitude, to JOSIE)
Hey, skimpy babe. Welcome to our humble monastery. Name’s Side Burn, what’s yours???!!!

JOSIE
(blushing)
Uhhh... I’m Josie... Josie Beller.

HOSEHEAD
(with a pleasant attitude)
Nice to meet you, Josie, though I wonder if we should come up with an honorary Autobot codename for ya.

JOSIE
(happy)
Gee, you guys really are great!!! In fact, I think that from now on, I may just use an Autobot codename.

SIDE BURN
Well, how about “superbabe in a skimpy metallic suit”???!!!! That rings well with me!!!!

REV
Nah, too long!!! Someone really needs to put a circuit breaker on your head, Side Burn!!!

HOSEHEAD
(after hearing REV’S remark)
I’ve got it!!! Rev, you’re a genius!!!

REV
(baffled)
I am????!!!!

HOSEHEAD
(to JOSIE)
Well, Josie. From now on, your Autobot codename will be “Circuit Breaker”!!!

JOSIE
Golly, I really like the sound of that!!! It fits the powers of my suit perfectly!!!

DRIFT
(to JOSIE)
Well, Miss Beller. It’s time to start with your training.

FADE IN TO

G-WIZ NEWS – EDITOR’S OFFICE

We see TEDDY WILSON, editor of G-WIZ news, talking on the phone while LAURA WINSLOW comes in to report.

WILSON
(to someone on the phone)
Thanks, Len.
(to LAURA, while hanging up the phone)
Any news from the Beller girl???!!!

LAURA
Nothing since she escaped the hospital.
(concerned)
Gosh, she must feel pretty strange in that suit.

WILSON
Trust me, Laura, nobody would like to be in a suit like that for the rest of their lives.

Suddenly, the phone rings and WILSON answers immediately.

WILSON
(to the phone)
City room, Wilson speaking!!!
(after hearing some unpleasant news)
What???!!!! WHAT????!!!! That nincompoop broke the camera???!!!!! GREAT CAESAR’S GHOST!!!!
(getting even more upset)
What did you say???? Calm down????? Who wants to calm down, that idiot--????!!!!
(furious)
PARKS, DON’T... CALL... ME... CHIEF!!!!

LAURA swiftly gets out of WILSON’S office. Then she’s stopped by MORT, one of the assistant camera boys. He talks with a nasally and cracking high-pitched voice.

MORT
Yo, Laura.

LAURA
Oh, hi Mort. What’s up???!!!!

MORT
There’s a lady that wants you to go to the copper station. A Miss S. Arm. She says it’s urgent.

LAURA
Gee, thanks Mort. I’ll be there as soon as I can.

FADE IN TO

THE POLICE STATION – EXTERIOR

We see STRONGARM standing outside of the Police Station, waiting for LAURA. Then, LAURA arrives and they both start talking.

STRONGARM
Great to see you, Laura.

LAURA
Same to you, so, what’re we gonna do now???

STRONGARM
We’ll do a scouting mission in the desert. We must track down the ‘con ship in order to save our friends.

LAURA
(winking)
Sounds dangerously exciting!!! Count me in!!!

FADE IN TO

THE MONASTERY – INTERIOR

We see JOSIE meditating while DRIFT guides her.

DRIFT
(to JOSIE)
Now, my student, we must try to channel your emotions in order to control your power. Now concentrate. Visualize a target in front of you and try to blast it.

JOSIE is then imagining a target in front of her. She raises her arm and a blast of electricity comes out of her fingers, but unlike last time, she’s now controlling the intensity of the blast through her concentration.

DRIFT
(to JOSIE)
Excellently done, my student. You have managed to control your powers.

JOSIE
Thank you, sensei.

DRIFT
Now, it is time for another training exercise.
(to HOSEHEAD, REV and SIDE BURN)
Prepare your shields, so that your new partner can blast you without harming you.

The three Autobots then take out some shields for the next exercise.

DRIFT
(to JOSIE)
Imagine those shields your partners are holding as Decepticon troopers. You have to blast them.

JOSIE
(somewhat insecure)
Do I have to engage them alone???

DRIFT
The objective of this exercise is for you to try and overcome your most dreaded fear.

JOSIE
(a little bit more confident)
Okay, then. Let’s do it!!!!

JOSIE, still feeling a little bit nervous, prepares for the exercise.

DRIFT
Are you all set, Miss Beller???

JOSIE
(trying to cool down a little bit)
Okay... I’m ready!!!

DRIFT
Very well, let the exercise begin.

Then, JOSIE starts firing at the shields. DRIFT observes carefully and he’s very pleased with the way JOSIE’S handling and the way she controls herself. JOSIE also seems surprised by this. Thanks to her new powers, she doesn’t have to worry about any Decepticon coming after her. Then, after a few minutes of blasting the shields, the exercise ends.

DRIFT
(with a warm tone, to JOSIE)
Excellent, my child. You have managed to handle this exercise with great efficiency. Now remember to practice everything that you have learned today.

JOSIE
(with a respectful tone)
I’ll make you proud, Master Drift.

DRIFT
(smiling)
You already have, my student.
(to JOSIE, HOSEHEAD, SIDE BURN and REV)
You can rest for today, my wards. You have all made me very proud.

HOSEHEAD, JOSIE, SIDE BURN, REV
(in unison, respectfully)
Yes, sensei.

Then, the four students go outside to talk and have some fun while DRIFT goes to meditate.

HOSEHEAD
(to JOSIE)
Hey, CB. You really handled everything like a pro!!! I’m really impressed!!!

REV
(to JOSIE)
Yeah, like he said.

JOSIE
(blushing)
Gosh, you’re too kind. You all have treated me really well. Master Drift is really sweet as well.

SIDE BURN
Yeah, the sensei’s awesome, but he can also be pretty funny at times.

JOSIE
You ‘bots really are the best. You’re all so sweet and kind to us humans. I really wish I could be one of you.

HOSEHEAD
You are one of us, Josie. And even when you leave, you’ll always be one of us.

JOSIE smiles after hearing HOSEHEAD’S words. After being so afraid since her revival, she has finally learned to live with her new suit as well as her powers.

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

OREGON – THE DESERT

We see STRONGARM driving around the desert. We also see that LAURA is inside of STRONGARM. Suddenly, LAURA notices something a few miles ahead.

LAURA
(surprised)
Whoa, look at that!!!

LAURA points at the thing she saw and STRONGARM sees it.

STRONGARM
(shocked)
Gee, it’s the ‘con ship!!!! Contact the base!!!

LAURA then activates STRONGARM’S communicator. We then cut to the Autobot Base and we see that BUMBLEBEE, MINERVA and SPIKE WITWICKY’S son DANIEL answer the call.

LAURA
(through computer filter)
Guys, Strongarm and I have found the ‘con ship!!! We’re staying here just in case.

BUMBLEBEE
Roger that, Laura.

The transmission ends. Suddenly, DANIEL notices that MINERVA is heading towards the entrance.

DANIEL
(noticing that MINERVA is heading to the entrance)
Minerva, wait!!! Where are you going???!!!!!

MINERVA
(with a sad tone)
It’s my fault Arcee and the others got captured, I’ve gotta save them!!!

MINERVA transforms into vehicle mode and rolls out, despite BUMBLEBEE’S pleas.

BUMBLEBEE
Minerva, come back!!! You can’t handle all the ‘cons by yourself!!!

DANIEL
(to BUMBLEBEE)
They’ll kill her as soon as she arrives there!!!

BUMBLEBEE
There’s only one thing we can do.
(pressing one of TELETRAAN-I’S buttons)
Bumblebee to Drift, we got a little bit of trouble.

Then, we cut to the abandoned monastery. DRIFT has received the message. His four students are with him, listening to BUMBLEBEE’S every word.

BUMBLEBEE
(through intercom filter)
Minerva ran away!!! She doesn’t stand a chance against the whole ‘con army. You gotta help her!!!

JOSIE
(with determination)
I’ll go. I never thought the day would come so soon, but it seems I have no choice.

HOSEHEAD
(to JOSIE)
We’re comin’ with ya. Not only do we have a brother in arms being held captive by the ‘cons, but we also want to help you. You’re part of the team, and we gotta stick together.

DRIFT
(proud, to JOSIE, HOSEHEAD, REV and SIDE BURN)
Witnessing my students’ loyalty to each other gives me great hope for the future. Good hunting, my sons.

The four trainees bow their heads to their master. Then, JOSIE swiftly flies off in order to save her friend MINERVA from making a rash decision that would lead to her own demise. HOSEHEAD, REV and SIDE BURN transform into vehicle mode and follow JOSIE.

FADE IN TO

THE DESERT – DECEPTICON SHIP

We see STRONGARM and LAURA keeping a watchful eye on the Decepticon ship. Suddenly, LAURA notices some dust heading towards the ship. She looks at the source of the dust with a pair of goggles.

LAURA
(shocked)
By golly!!! It’s Minerva!!!!

STRONGARM
What???!!!! What’s she doing here????!!!!

LAURA
(noticing something following MINERVA)
Wait a minute, is that... Josie???!!!!

Then, we see MINERVA driving towards the ship. However, she’s stopped by JOSIE.

JOSIE
(standing in MINERVA’S way)
Minerva!!! Wait!!!!

MINERVA
(stopping abruptly)
JOSIE!!!! What’re ya doing here???!!!

JOSIE
I came to help, along with my friends. I know you feel guilty about Arcee’s capture, but charging to the ‘con ship isn’t the way to solve your problems. I’ve known you for quite some time now, and I know that you wouldn’t want to let Arcee down. So please, if you want to make Arcee proud of you, let us help in coming up with a strategy.

MINERVA
(ashamed of herself)
Oh, what am I doing???!!!! I’ve been such a fool!!! I just wanted to make things right again, but I’m just making everything worse!!! It’s just that everything’s happened so quickly that I don’t know what to do anymore!!!

JOSIE
I totally understand you, Minerva.

MINERVA
(still ashamed)
I’m really sorry for everything.

JOSIE
(with warmth)
Minerva, there’s nothing to be sorry for. You haven’t done anything wrong. You’re just troubled with all that’s been happening. It’s just part of life.

REV
(transforming to robot mode, to MINERVA and JOSIE)
Okay, enough of the warm reunion, we got a strategy to make.

JOSIE
(with a playful smile)
Oh, don’t worry. I already figured that out.

Suddenly, STRONGARM and LAURA also arrive.

STRONGARM
(to JOSIE)
You can count us in too!!!!

JOSIE
Excellent, girls!!! We’ll need all the help we can get!!!!
(to MINERVA)
Do you still have that trenchcoat and fedora with you???!!!

MINERVA takes out a green trenchcoat and a brown fedora out of a storage chamber in her chest.

JOSIE
(taking the trenchcoat and the fedora)
Awesome!!! Now, let the diversion begin!!!

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

THE DECEPTICON SHIP – ENTRANCE

We see someone walking towards the Decepticon ship, wearing a trenchcoat and a fedora. We then see QUAKE guarding the entrance.

QUAKE
(noticing the figure walking towards the base)
Alto!!! Who goes there???!!!!

Suddenly, the figure raises its hand and a stream of energy hits QUAKE. Then, QUAKE explodes and all his pieces fly off!!!

QUAKE
(exploding into pieces)
BABALÚUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!

The figure then enters the ship. We see that THUNDERHOOF, SKY-BYTE and the TANK DRONES are prepared.

SKY-BYTE
(with an authoritative tone)
Prepare to engage this new threat!!!

Then, the figure takes off the trenchcoat and the fedora and we see that it’s JOSIE. She playfully winks at her opponents.

THUNDERHOOF
Love the new look, bellisima!!!
(aiming his Plasma Lupara at JOSIE)
Goodbye!!!!

THUNDERHOOF fires his Plasma Lupara, but JOSIE evades the blast. She blasts THUNDERHOOF and he flies off into the air.

THUNDERHOOF
(flying off)
EH-OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

JOSIE then blasts SKY-BYTE, and he falls into a liquid vat. She starts destroying TANK DRONES left and right!!! Then, HOSEHEAD, MINERVA, REV, STRONGARM, SIDE BURN and LAURA come in. LAURA is holding a camera and recording everything.

JOSIE
(to her allies)
Go find the captive ‘bots!!! I’m gonna have some fun with a certain bad boy!!!

JOSIE then blasts down the door to the throne room and she finds STARSCREAM sitting on SHOCKWAVE’S throne, eating all the Energon.

JOSIE
(with a snarky attitude)
Well, well!!! It seems that you really love stealing food from your allies!!!

STARSCREAM
(scared)
You!!!??? But that’s impossible!!! I SAW YOU DIE!!!

JOSIE
(with a playful attitude)
Oh my!!! So now I’m a ghost, and I’ve come to haunt you!!!

STARSCREAM
(totally scared)
Please, don’t punish me!!! I’ll do anything you ask!!! ANYTHING!!!!

JOSIE
(with a playful smile)
Anything???!!!

STARSCREAM
(comically crying like a little kid)
ANYTHING!!!

JOSIE
(with a snarky attitude)
Okay, then. Hmmmmm, lick the floor!!!

STARSCREAM
(shocked)
Me??? Lick the floor????!!!! NEVER!!!!!

JOSIE
(with a snarky attitude, raising her arm)
Okay, you asked for it!!!

STARSCREAM
(scared)
Okay, okay, I’ll do it!!!!

STARSCREAM starts licking the floor. JOSIE is giggling at the air commander’s willingness to obey her. Then, she gives another order.

JOSIE
Okay, Screamer!!! You amused me enough. Now stand up!!!!

STARSCREAM stands up and waits for JOSIE’S next order.

JOSIE
Okay, now stay there!!!

JOSIE sees a chandelier on the ceiling, right above STARSCREAM. She blasts it, and it falls right on top of STARSCREAM.

STARSCREAM
(reacting to the chandelier landing on top of him)
OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!

JOSIE
(with a snarky attitude)
Okay, Screamer!!! Class dismissed!!!!

JOSIE then goes to search for her allies. She finds them trying to open the entrance to the prison.

JOSIE
Allow me!!!

JOSIE blasts the door and it falls. Then, we see that the four Autobots are in their cells.

SMOKESCREEN
Whoa!!! What happened???!!!

ARCEE
Minerva!!!

MINERVA
(relieved)
Arcee!!!! You’re alright!!! Thank Primus!!!!

Then, we see HOSEHEAD, REV and SIDE BURN freeing DAYTONUS.

DAYTONUS
(to his allies)
Eyyyyyy, who’s the babe in the skimpy suit???!!!

HOSEHEAD
She’s part of the team.

DAYTONUS
Now that’s really awesome!!!

Then, STRONGARM frees SIREN and SMOKESCREEN.

SIREN
‘Bout time!!! I was gettin’ pretty bored in here!!!

Then, JOSIE, LAURA and the rest of the Autobots escape from the Decepticon ship and then arrive at the Autobot Base.

LAURA
(excited)
I got it all on tape!!! Teddy’s gonna be so proud!!!

ARCEE
(to JOSIE)
I was really worried about you!!! I thought you were dead!!! But as I always said, never underestimate the humans. Welcome to the team, Josie.

JOSIE
Thanks, Arcee. It’ll be great fighting alongside you.

MINERVA
Say, Josie. How would you like to play around the desert???!!!!

JOSIE
(smiling)
I thought you’d never ask!!!

Then, MINERVA and JOSIE start running and flying around the desert while ARCEE looks at them with a warm smile. We hear that MINERVA and JOSIE are giggling with joy while happily playing in the desert.

ACT ONE

FADE IN

NOVA CRONUM – RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD

Nova Cronum, a peaceful city on the north side of Cybertron, we see that it’s filled with residential neighborhoods. We focus on one residential neighborhood and we see a familiar face walking to his house. It’s QUAKE. However, he doesn’t seem like the QUAKE we’re used to seeing. He looks a lot more lovable than before and his face looks full of warmth. He’s carrying a package. He opens the door to his house and lets out a playful yell.

QUAKE
(with a playful attitude)
LUCYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! I’M HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME!!!!!

Then, we see LUCY, a beautiful housewife with a very distinctive face and look, walking towards QUAKE.

LUCY
(excited)
Oh, Quakey!!! You’re home!!! Just in time for supper!!!

QUAKE
(handing LUCY the package)
Happy birthday, honey!!!!

LUCY
(excited)
Oh, you remembered that tomorrow is my birthday!!!!! Thanks, Quakey!!!
(with a sad attitude)
Although, I still really wish my friends were here to see me.

QUAKE looks at LUCY with a pout. He knows that LUCY means that she wants ARCEE to come and visit. It’s been a long time since both girls had a reunion. However, QUAKE doesn’t know if ARCEE will come due to him beating her to the ground the last time they fought. But still, QUAKE doesn’t give up hope and tells LUCY that he’ll try his best to bring their friends for a party.

QUAKE
(with warmth)
Tell ya what, honey. I’ll try and give you a nice surprise for tomorrow.

LUCY
Oh, that’s very nice of you, but I really would give anything to be with one of my friends right now. It gets so lonely here.
(noticing that QUAKE is running to the door)
Wait, Quakey!!! Where are ya goin’!!!!!

QUAKE
I’ll be back tomorrow with your surprise!!! Just go to the Cronum mall and shop your spark out!!!

QUAKE then runs off and gets into his shuttle.

LUCY
(with disappointment)
Hmph, men!!!!

FADE IN TO

OREGON – THE AUTOBOT BASE

We see ARCEE, STRONGARM and MINERVA looking at TELETRAAN-I for any unusual activity.

STRONGARM
Things have been pretty quiet lately.

MINERVA
(noticing some strange blips coming to the base)
Wait, something’s coming!!!

Then, TELETRAAN-I gives the three Autobot girls a visual of the unidentified object.

ARCEE
(recognizing the object immediately)
It’s Quake’s shuttle!!!!

STRONGARM
(eagerly)
C’mon, let’s apprehend him!!!

ARCEE
(stopping STRONGARM)
No!!! I know him well. If he wanted to attack us, he would have brought a whole battalion of drones with him. He wants to talk.

QUAKE’S shuttle lands right in front of the Autobot base. QUAKE comes out of the shuttle, while ARCEE, STRONGARM, MINERVA, SMOKESCREEN, DAYTONUS, BUMBLEBEE, SIREN and WHEELJACK go to greet him.

ARCEE
(to QUAKE)
Hi, Quake. You seem troubled. What’s wrong???!!!

QUAKE
(to ARCEE)
Listen, Arcee. I’m sorry for beating you up the last time we fought, but I was just following ordenes, it was nothing personal.

ARCEE
(smiling)
Don’t worry about that, Quake. It was only business.

QUAKE
(relieved)
Phew!!! Glad you understand. Now, I wanted to talk about something muy importante. Tomorrow is Lucy’s birthday, but she’s getting pretty depressed. She’s been feeling real lonely lately and I don’t know what to do with her. I wanted to ask you and your Autobot amigos if you could come with me to give her a real party.

ARCEE
(warmly, to QUAKE)
Of course!!! Lucy is my friend, and I would never let her down!!! We would really love to come visit you two.

QUAKE
Gracias, Arcee. I really want Lucy to have the best birthday party she’s ever had.

FADE IN TO

THE DECEPTICON SHIP – BRIEFING ROOM

We see KNOCK OUT and QUAKE making preparations for the surprise party.

KNOCK OUT
(with a jolly attitude)
Well, the good news is that our allies will go to the party.

QUAKE
And the malas noticias???

KNOCK OUT
Well, the bad news is ol’ screamin’ charm doesn’t want to be with those Autobots.

QUAKE reacts to this with a facepalm.

QUAKE
(frustrated)
Ayayay!!! I knew that this was gonna happen!!!

FADE IN TO

QUAKE AND LUCY’S HOUSE – LIVING ROOM

We see that ARCEE, BUMBLEBEE, WHEELJACK, MINERVA, SMOKESCREEN, DRIFT, DAYTONUS, STRONGARM, HOSEHEAD, REV, SIDE BURN, STARSCREAM, THUNDERHOOF, SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers are in the living room. Then, QUAKE and KNOCK OUT come in. KNOCK OUT then looks around and he suddenly looks at someone who he finds attractive. He’s looking at STRONGARM!!! He runs toward her and grabs her by the waist.

KNOCK OUT
(totally carried away, to STRONGARM)
Where have you been all my life????!!!!! I need love!!! I need a girl!!! I need-

STRONGARM
(interrupting KNOCK OUT)
You need to be taught a lesson!!!

STRONGARM grabs KNOCK OUT and throws him to the ground.

KNOCK OUT
OOOOOOOOOF!!!!!

STRONGARM
Never harass an officer of the law!!!

KNOCK OUT
(comically struggling)
Gosh, love hurts!!!

QUAKE then starts addressing all the Autobots and Decepticons.

QUAKE
Okay, muchachos. We’ve got to practice our song.

STARSCREAM
(annoyed, to QUAKE)
Hey, no one gives me orders, you sorry excuse for a conga drummer!!!

ALL THE OTHER TRANSFORMERS
(in unison)
SHUT UP, STARSCREAM!!!!

STARSCREAM reacts to this with a comical gulp.

QUAKE
Okay, now we can start practicing.
(to STARSCREAM)
You’re playing the piano.

STARSCREAM sits in front of QUAKE’S piano.

STARSCREAM
(smirking)
Now to demonstrate my awesome piano skills!!!

QUAKE
(to RUNAMUCK)
You play the drums!!
(to RUNABOUT)
You!!! Double Bass!!!

The Battlechargers eagerly run to QUAKE’S other instruments.

RUNABOUT
(excited, to RUNAMUCK)
Yo, this is gonna be so boss!!!

RUNAMUCK
(excited, to RUNABOUT)
Yeah, we’re finally gonna be rock stars!!!!

QUAKE
Muy bien. On the count of tres, we’ll start. Uno, dos, tres!!!!

Then, STARSCREAM starts playing the piano while singing “I Love Lucy” along with the other Autobots and Decepticons.

AUTOBOTS, DECEPTICONS
(singing, in unison)
Lucy
I love Lucy

QUAKE
(singing)
I love Lucy and she loves me!!!
We’re as happy as two can be!!!
We have our quarrels, but then
Oh, how we love making up again!!!
Lucy kisses like no one can!!!
She’s my missus and I’m her man!!!
And life is heaven, you see!!!
‘Cause I love Lucy
Yes, I love Lucy
And Lucy loves me!!!!

Suddenly, the practice comes to an abrupt halt as STARSCREAM starts complaining.

STARSCREAM
Okay, that’s it!!! I’m not gonna play this corny song!!!

QUAKE
(getting angry)
YOU DARE CALL THIS SONG CORNY???!!!!

STARSCREAM
(angrily)
Yeah, I dare!!! You’re corny, Knock Out’s corny, and everyone else here is corny!!!

QUAKE
(furious)
Now listen, you vato!!! If you’re plannin’ ta ruin tha party, I’m gonna break you en do’ pedazo’!!!

This argument between STARSCREAM and QUAKE has started a whole conflict between the Autobots and Decepticons.

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

QUAKE AND LUCY’S HOUSE – THE LIVING ROOM

We see that the Autobots and Decepticons have been bickering intensely for a few hours. First, we see DRIFT and SKY-BYTE, as well as DRIFT’S students, DAYTONUS, SIDE BURN, REV and HOSEHEAD are the only ones who aren’t bickering.

SKY-BYTE
(to DRIFT)
So, this is how we handle truces????!!!

DRIFT
(calmly, to SKY-BYTE)
Our respective allies don’t have the same amount of training and mental fortitude we martial artists have, Sky-Byte.

We then see ARCEE and MINERVA bickering with STARSCREAM.

ARCEE
(angrily, to STARSCREAM)
Why can’t you stop being such an egotistical jerk????!!!

MINERVA
(annoyed, to STARSCREAM)
Yeah, you’re ruining everything!!!

STARSCREAM
(taunting ARCEE and MINERVA)
Just try to stop me if ya can!!! You don’t have your big boys to back you up this time!!!

ARCEE and MINERVA angrily jump on STARSCREAM and a fight ensues. Meanwhile, KNOCK OUT keeps trying to seduce STRONGARM.

KNOCK OUT
(with a seductive tone, to STRONGARM)
How about we get away from this whole racket???!!!

KNOCK OUT gets a reply from STRONGARM in the form of a slap to the face!!!

KNOCK OUT
OWWWW!!! Hey, be careful!!! That’s my face!!!!

We then see the Battlechargers laughing at this whole confrontation. We also see THUNDERHOOF picking on BUMBLEBEE.

THUNDERHOOF
(to BUMBLEBEE)
You is really gittin’ in my noyves, yellah ‘bot!!!

BUMBLEBEE
Why does everyone like to pick on the little guys???!!!

Suddenly, SMOKESCREEN, SIREN and WHEELJACK jump in front of THUNDERHOOF.

SIREN
(angrily, to THUNDERHOOF)
Listen, ya mob-faced deer!!! No one treats our friend LAHK that!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(with a threatening tone, to THUNDERHOOF)
If you wanna pick on someone, here we are!!!

WHEELJACK
Yeah!!!

THUNDERHOOF
(eager for a fight)
This is gonna be fun!!!

We then see DRIFT’S students trying to stop the fight.

DAYTONUS
(trying to stop the fight)
Ey, dudes!!! Stop this!!!

HOSEHEAD
C’mon, guys!!! We’re better than this!!!

We then see SIDE BURN holding ARCEE and MINERVA while REV grabs STARSCREAM.

STARSCREAM
(furiously, to REV)
Lemme go!!!! I’ll scrap those two Auto-bimbos!!!!

REV
(sardonically)
Boy, and here I thought I was ill-tempered!!!

MINERVA
(angrily, to SIDE BURN)
Unhand me!!!

ARCEE
(angrily, to SIDE BURN)
I’ll rip his face apart!!!

SIDE BURN
(trying to keep ARCEE and MINERVA away from STARSCREAM)
Listen, girls!!! You should relax; I really hate it when you get this angry!!!

Then, QUAKE, totally upset and depressed walks out of the room, being followed by KNOCK OUT. They both sit on QUAKE’S bench and QUAKE starts thinking about how LUCY will react to this.

QUAKE
(with a sad tone)
Caramba, Lucy is gonna hate me for this.

KNOCK OUT
(trying to cheer QUAKE up)
C’mon, mac!!!! At least you tried. I mean, you know those guys in the living room really aren’t bosom buddies with each other.

QUAKE
(crying)
I just wanted to give her a good surprise party.

KNOCK OUT’S sardonic smirk turns into a frown. He knows that QUAKE loves LUCY a lot, and he also understands that if the party fails, QUAKE won’t be able to forgive himself for the rest of his life. Then, he takes a napkin from his chest compartment and wipes QUAKE’S tears away.

KNOCK OUT
(wiping QUAKE’S tears)
There, there. You shouldn’t be so hard on yourself. We’re comic relief, we don’t take ourselves seriously.

However, QUAKE swiftly hugs KNOCK OUT while he keeps crying. KNOCK OUT then looks at us while he comforts QUAKE.

KNOCK OUT
(to us)
If we had more people like this guy, the world would be a better place. Yes, I know we bicker a lot, but he really is a sweet guy once you get to know him better.

Meanwhile, in the living room, SKY-BYTE and DRIFT decide that it’s time to stop all of this reckless behavior.

SKY-BYTE
(yelling furiously)
STOP THIS NONSENSE AT ONCE!!!!

Suddenly, everyone stops fighting. They’re totally petrified by SKY-BYTE’S intensely delivered order. Then, DRIFT starts addressing both sides with a somewhat sour tone.

DRIFT
(with a very stern tone, to the Autobots and Decepticons)
We’ve had quite enough of your poor attitude!!! Look at you!!! You should be ashamed of yourselves!!! You came here to bring peace and happiness to a lady on her birthday, and all you have done so far, is bring pain to us all, including our gracious host!!!

We then see that all the bickering Autobots and Decepticons feel extremely ashamed of their actions.

MINERVA
(with a sad tone)
Golly, what have we done???!!!

ARCEE
(with a sad tone)
We’ve been so foolish. We’ve been fighting for so long that we forgot how real life was like. Rodimus would be pretty displeased with all of this.

THUNDERHOOF
(with a sad tone)
I behaved like a real sticazz!!!!

SKY-BYTE
Now that you’ve seen the error of your ways, you all must go and apologize to Quake, and that goes for you too, Starscream!!!

STARSCREAM
(annoyed, to SKY-BYTE)
Me???!!!! I am your boss!!!!

SKY-BYTE
(angrily, to STARSCREAM)
If you keep whining, I’ll personally slice you to ribbons!!!!

STARSCREAM
(threatened)
Okay, okay, I’ll go!!!

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

QUAKE AND LUCY’S HOUSE – EXTERIOR

We see the Autobots and Decepticons coming out of the house with sad expressions on their faces. We then see that they start talking to QUAKE.

ARCEE
Listen… Quake. Ummm, we want to sincerely apologize.

SMOKESCREEN
We behaved badly and we really regret ruining everything for you.

STARSCREAM
(being threatened by SKY-BYTE)
We’re willing to practice the song without interruptions!!!

QUAKE’S frown turns into a lively smile. Then, he energetically gets up from the bench.

QUAKE
(energetically)
Excelente, muchachos!!! Now, we shall practice and give Lucy a present she won’t soon forget!!!

FADE IN TO

QUAKE AND LUCY’S HOUSE – EXTERIOR

We see LUCY has arrived from the mall. She opens the door and is overjoyed when she sees both the Autobots and Decepticons at her home, greeting her with a lot of warmth.

AUTOBOTS, DECEPTICONS
(with joy)
SURPRISE!!!!!

LUCY
(with a happy tone)
Oh, golly!!!! You’re all here!!!
(looking at ARCEE)
Arcee, oh gosh, it’s been such a long time!!!!

ARCEE
(happily)
It’s really great to see you again, Lucy!!!

Then, QUAKE comes in and LUCY gives him a big hug.

LUCY
(happily, to QUAKE)
Oh, Quakey!!! You’re the best!!! You brought our friends here!!!

QUAKE
Not only that, but we also have a present for ya!!! Remember that surprise I told you about???
(to the Autobots and Decepticons)
Okay, muchachos, time for the song!!!!

Then, LUCY sits on her sofa while QUAKE and both the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS start playing and singing.

AUTOBOTS, DECEPTICONS
(singing, in unison)
Lucy
I love Lucy

QUAKE
(singing)
I love Lucy and she loves me!!!
We’re as happy as two can be!!!
We have our quarrels, but then
Oh, how we love making up again!!!
Lucy kisses like no one can!!!
She’s my missus and I’m her man!!!
And life is heaven, you see!!!
‘Cause I love Lucy
Yes, I love Lucy
And Lucy loves me!!!!

AUTOBOTS, DECEPTICONS
(singing, in unison)
I love Lucy and she loves me!!!
We’re as happy as two can be!!!
Sometimes we quarrel, but then
How we love making up again!!!
Lucy kisses like no one can!!!
She’s my missus and I’m her man!!!
And life is heaven, you see!!!
‘Cause I love Lucy
Yes, I love Lucy
And Lucy loves me!!!!

QUAKE
(singing)
I love Lucy and she loves me!!!
We’re as happy as two can be!!!
Sometimes we quarrel, but then, hahaha!!!
How we love making up again!!!
Lucy kisses like no one can!!!
She’s my missus and I’m her man!!!
And life is heaven, you see!!!

QUAKE, AUTOBOTS, DECEPTICONS
(singing, in unison)
‘Cause I love Lucy
Yes, I love Lucy
And Lucy loves me!!!!

Then, LUCY claps with excitement. She then runs towards QUAKE and gives him a very lovely kiss.

LUCY
(excited, to QUAKE)
This really was the best present ever!!!!

We then see STRONGARM talking to KNOCK OUT.

STRONGARM
(with a shy attitude, to KNOCK OUT)
Listen, um, I’m sorry for being so harsh to you. I wish there was something I could do to make up for my hostile attitude.

KNOCK OUT then smiles seductively at STRONGARM.

KNOCK OUT
(smiling, to STRONGARM)
There is, babe. There is.

Suddenly, MINERVA brings a radio and presses the play button. Then, an instrumental version of RICK ASTLEY’S “She Wants to Dance With Me” starts playing, while KNOCK OUT and STRONGARM start singing.

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She wants to dai-ai-ai-ai-ance
Ooooh, she wants to dance with me

We see QUAKE and LUCY smiling at KNOCK OUT. QUAKE gives his brother-in-law a “thumbs up”.

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
Oh, oh, yeah

STRONGARM
(singing)
Dance with me!!!

We then see that DAYTONUS and ARCEE are dancing to the beat.

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
There's a girl I've been waiting to see

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
And I really get the feeling that she likes me
'Cause she said so, but not in so many words
I've got to tell you what I've heard

We then see that SMOKESCREEN is dancing with MINERVA while QUAKE starts dancing with LUCY.

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She don't want no wild romance
When she's with me she only wants to dance

We then see SKY-BYTE and DRIFT doing the square dance, while REV and SIDE BURN, HOSEHEAD and WHEELJACK, and STARSCREAM and THUNDERHOOF do the same.

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She wants to dance with me

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
'Cause I'll hold her so tight next to me

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She wants to dance with me

Then, we see BUMBLEBEE and the Battlechargers doing the Carlton dance.

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
'Cause I'll let her be what she wants to be

We get another shot of ARCEE dancing playfully with DAYTONUS.

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
Now I know I've been out of touch

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
And I never meant to hurt my baby oh so much
'Cause I love her, and I think she loves me
And that's the way it's got to be

We see SMOKESCREEN swinging MINERVA around playfully.

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
When we're together we never fight
We've got better things to do tonight

We then get another shot of QUAKE and LUCY dancing.

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She wants to dance with me

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
'Cause I'll hold her so tight next to me

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She wants to dance with me

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
'Cause I'll let her be what she wants to be

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She wants to dai-ai-ai-ai-ance
She wants to dai-ai-ai-ai-ance

Then, during the instrumental solo, STRONGARM and KNOCK OUT dance around playfully. We also see that STARSCREAM and THUNDERHOOF are now doing the Cossack dance. We also get shots of all the other dancing Autobots and Decepticons while the instrumental solo is playing.

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She wants to dance with me

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
'Cause I'll hold her so tight next to me

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)
She wants to dance with me

KNOCK OUT, STRONGARM
(singing, in unison)

KNOCK OUT
(singing)
'Cause I'll let her be what she wants to be…

Then, while the song fades out, the screen starts fading to black. The Autobots and Decepticons have finally managed to overcome their differences in order to have a brief truce just for this special moment.

Act 1

New Orleans Louisiana

(Cue “When the Saints Go Marching In”)

(A jazz swing band performs on a street corner, some playing trumpets, others banging tambourines while chanting. 4 figures, all in sunglasses, and 3 in sun hats, pass them and gaze around at the bustling street, seeing people from bass drum players to merchants selling oddities ranging from voodoo dolls to shrunken heads. They are the Autobots Arcee and Minerva, and their human friends Buster Witwicky and Jesse Harrison.)

Minerva: Oh, can we go and get a shrunken head???

Jesse: You're kidding. Those are totally ugly. Even the Decepticons look better than that.

Minerva: Well can we at least get some voodoo dolls of the Decepticons?

Arcee: That's actually very tempting...

Jesse: Oh, please!!! Tell me you're joking!!! I don't think a certain two currently MIA Autobots would approve of that. Besides don't we have a tour tram to catch? And a tram after that.

Buster: Well it starts loading in an hour, but it doesn't leave for another 2 hours so that gives all the tourists time to arrive, and I scheduled the late ferry for the swamp cruise to make sure we make it.

Arcee: But is there a route for vehicle mode? I’m still nervous about missing it.

Jesse: Relax, that's why we took this vacation, to leave our worries behind and not worry about Roddy and Nightbeat or...

(Two bushes suddenly move and a face pops out, Minerva jumps back.)

Minerva: Decepticon!!!!

Arcee: No it's not; it's just another street performer.

Minerva: Well, what about that?

(She points to a statue, then walks up to it and begins poking it, she pauses to pick up a stick but Arcee stops her.)

Arcee: Trust me, there are no Decepticons here.

(Perched on a nearby rooftop are three figures, the Decepticons Sky Byte, Runabout, and Runamuck, the latter two also known as The Battlechargers.)

Sky Byte: That's what she thinks...

Runabout: What's the plan again?

(Sky Byte is holding a skull in one hand and extends the other.)

Sky Byte: Thou shall hold thy enemies hostage, then force thy Autobots to help us... You know what? I can't do it like this.

(He puts the skull down and continues.)

Sky Byte: (CT) We hold the Autobots and their human allies hostage, then force them to help us rescue Shockwave and Tankor. Once they're free, we destroy them!!!

Runamuck: But won't they rescue Rodimus, and what's his face...Lightwheat instead?

Sky Byte: We shall destroy them anyways. MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

(As Sky Byte laughs the Battlechargers slowly tiptoe away but get caught by Sky Byte, who spots them right before they reach the ladder, folding his arms and tapping his foot.)

Runabout: We were just going to the little boys’ room.

Runamuck: Well, actually, we wanted to get a souvenir...

Sky Byte: Fools!!! This is a mission, not a vacation!!!

Runabout: But they're on vacation!!!

Sky Byte: Exactly. That’s why they'll never expect us to strike. Why, when I used one of Shockwave's old drones to track them down so that I could learn anything new, and was informed they were spotted at the airport, I knew they'd be off guard.

Runabout: But we'll never be able to capture them in this crowd…

Runamuck: Besides, look at how much fun the bustling signs of life in the city are having, there’s nothing like that on a summer’s day, right?

(Sky Byte picks up the skull again and walks over to the edge of the railing.)

Sky Byte: Ah, the warm sun of New Orleans on a hot summer’s day...

(With Sky Byte distracted The Battlechargers head down the ladder and run across the street to a vendor stand. They see a guy partially hidden under the table cloth tied up and gagged and a guy who resembles him standing with their backs to them. As they approach he turns around.)

Vendor: EEEEEE-YESSSSSS?

Runabout: Excuse me, are these Cybertronian?

Vendor: Why, no!!! In fact these are artifacts from the 1800's, symbols of the history of this wonderful city. The museum is paying me to sell these and raise money for new exhibits.

Runamuck: How much?

Vendor: $5000 gigs per relic.

(Runabout pulls out gigs from his satchel cube. While the fake vendor is preoccupied the real one slides under the side of the table and walks away.)

Runabout: Here, this should cover it.

(Just then Runamuck's communicator goes off. Starscream appears on the monitor.)

Starscream: Where are ya bums? I ordered a briefing 5 eons ago.

Runamuck: We're on vacation, boss.

Starscream: I didn't say you could take a vacation. Get back here this instant!!!

(Runamuck hands the communicator to the vendor.)

Runamuck: It's for you.

(Starscream disconnects at the sight of the vendor but the vendor keeps turning the communicator back on.)

Sky Byte: What are those?

Runabout: Historical relics, that nice vendor sold it to us.

(Sky Byte examines the relic closely.)

Sky Byte: Imbeciles, these aren't relics. They're outdated Cybertronian junk. Bah, no matter, we can still catch the enemy on the tour bus.

(As the tour bus is loading up, Sky Byte and The Battlechargers stow away in the carry on under the bus.)

(Buster, Jessie, Arcee and Minerva are walking towards the tour bus when Minerva turns toward a stand.)

Minerva: Ooooh one souvenir? Please??? We have time!!!

Arcee: Fine, just one.

(They approach it and then the vendor turns around.)

Vendor: Eeeeee-Yessss?

Arcee: E-nooooo. We'll find another one later.

(They walk away and find another vendor, this one of Indian descent, approaches with 2 police officers while the first vendor has his back turned.)

Vendor: E-SLAG!!!

(The vendor turns around and pretends to get a phone call)

Vendor: E-Yes? Yes, this is Swindle. Oh, Onslaught, is that you? Well, looks like I’m needed in the uh... Milkessa Quadrant.

(He presses a button and the booth disappears, then he transforms into a Jeep and drives off, with the cops following.)

Indian Vendor: Ignorant Americans!!!!! They think they can dress up in fancy costumes and tie us up like it's some sort of joke. I do this for business, not to be funny.

(Buster, Jessie, Arcee and Minerva climb up into the tour bus and go onto the upper deck and a young blonde woman tour guide with blue eyes complete with a matching blue outfit climbs onto the upper deck.)

Tour guide: Good afternoon, we are about to begin our tour of New Orleans. I sure hope we have everyone here ‘cause we're not slowing down if you have to chase us.

(The tour bus erupts with laughter.)

Tour guide: (CT) We're going to take you all around the city before bringing you back here, but the two most notable stops on this tour are the LaLaurie House and the grave of Marie Laveau, two of biggest names in New Orleans who continue to coexist among us in the afterlife...

(The tour guide holds the microphone up to her face and starts moaning into it to make ghostly noises.)

Tour guide: (CT) Madame Delphine LaLaurie was a rich socialite who is infamous for allegedly torturing her slaves, some say it was her, some say it was her husband, others say it was both. Who do you think it was?

(The tour guide holds the microphone out so people can talk into it.)

Minerva: Oh, oh, oh, me, me, me!!!

(The tour guide walks up to Minerva and puts the microphone up to her mouth.)

Minerva: (CT) It was either Megatron, Starscream or Shockwave.

(The entire tour bus including the guide starts laughing, minus Buster, Jessie, and Arcee. Minerva puts her hands in front of her face.)

Minerva: Good thing I packed my wall of shame.

Tour guide: Now then, before we start the tour can anyone tell me who Marie Laveau is?

(Jessie raises her hand and the tour guide walks over to her.)

Jesse: She was a voodoo priestess; some say you can see her spirit at her grave in the form of a raven.

Tour guide: Yes, essentially known as the mother of voodoo, the tomb of Marie Laveau has been subject to all kinds of strange stories prompting people to go and see if these stories are true, which requires an awful lot of patrol for non-tour groups showing up.

(The tour guide deepens her voice.)

Tour guide (CT): Now then on to the LaLaurie House, MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

(Cue “The Witch Queen of New Orleans”)

(The bus slowly approaches the LaLaurie House, the tour guide presses a button that makes a light flash, and then presses another that makes a thunder sound effect, and a bunch of bats fly across the sky, squeaking. The tour group enters the house and the eyes in a painting in the parlor follow them, the painting opens revealing Sky-Byte hiding behind it, they pass a door and a hand belonging to Runabout attempts to grab Jessie but she moves out of the way at the last minute, Buster is sitting in a chair and the bookcase behind him opens and then he tumbles back but Runamuck closes the bookcase so fast the books fall down on him and Buster, the trio make an attempt to sneak up on the group but an axe in a suit of armor falls and the group looks back so the trio hides in a corner, then attempts to sneak up on them again, but Sky-Byte steps on a carpet that is hiding a trap door and all three fall in and let out a Goofy holler, and the group turns around again. The group leaves and goes to Marie Laveau's grave, and Runabout jumps out in a mask and scares a tourist and The Battlechargers start laughing, then a hand taps Runabout on the shoulder and he turns around and a real ghost confined in chains, shouts "BOO" and they extend their arms and run in place before taking off. The tour group gathers in an alley and The Battlechargers step out of two doors as they leave, Runabout slips on a banana peel, Runamuck on roller skates, and The Battlechargers crash into Sky Byte and land in a dumpster, Sky Byte emerges, with fish bones stuck in his mouth, he pulls them out then looks at it in disgust once he realizes what it is, then a garbage truck dumps it in its trash compactor.)

The Bayou Docks

(Sky Byte is observing the tour group through a telescope when a giant purple spider slides down from a tree on a thread and webs them up in a net, and takes the telescope, transforming and revealing himself as Tarantulas.)

Tarantulas: Excellent...now I can finally have my revenge on that wretched Arcee, and claim the human girl for myself...

(He cackles into the air.)

End of Act 1

Act 2

(Tarantulas cuts the net containing Sky Byte, Runabout, and Runamuck)

Tarantulas: Welcome to my humble abode.

Sky Byte: Who are you?

Tarantulas: An acquaintance whose goals may be of personal interest to you...

(A giant wasp flies into the room, startling Runabout and Runamuck.)

Battlechargers: (in unison) Big wasp, big wasp, big wasp!!!!

(They each grab a big rock and take turns pounding on the giant wasp, the wasp falls onto the ground, with stars flying around its head, and slowly focuses on Sky Byte.)

Wasp: Hizzz name'zzz Tarantulazzz.

Tarantulas: Always ready to spoil my fun...

(The Battlechargers are running around in a panic.)

Battlechargers: (In unison) It talks, it talks!!!

(Runabout jumps into the air with the rock and raises it over his head.)

Runabout: Yabba Dabba Doo!!!!

(Runabout slams the rock down on the wasp like a club and a red ant enters the room.)

Red ant: Invaders!!! They mustn't harm the colony, Inferno: Terrorize!!!

(Inferno aims his flamethrower at the Battlechargers and pulls the trigger, the stream of flames catching both of them on fire.)

Battlechargers: (in unison) Ahhh, fire!!!!

(Runabout and Runamuck run around the room in a panic, then lower themselves to the floor and stop, drop, and roll. Sky Byte draws his sword.)

Sky Byte: Enough!!!! Stop this foolishness!!!

Inferno: Do you surrender to the colony?

Tarantulas: No need to surrender, giving our, eh, mutual interests, as I was about to explain before you so rudely interrupted.

Sky Byte: What do you want?

Tarantulas: I know something you don't know...

(Sky Byte draws his sword and holds it up to Tarantulas’ neck.)

Sky Byte: What... do... you... want...?

Tarantulas: Well thanks to some bugs not obeying my orders to stay put...

(Tarantulas glares at Waspinator and Inferno, and gestures for Sky Byte and The Battlechargers.)

Tarantulas: (CT) Introductions have been compromised, so to finish where I left off...the big mouth is Waspinator and the fire happy ant is Inferno, and considering the current state of the Decepticons I believe we can be of some use to each other, but first we must capture Arcee.

Sky Byte: What does she have to do with this?

(Tarantulas makes a motion as if he's holding a tissue.)

Tarantulas: Shortly after the wretched Autobots cost you so many loyal soldiers, she and the Autobot you know as Rodimus Prime interfered with my plans on Iacon resulting in the death of the late Straxus, and while I was mourning his loss, the now late Optimus Prime ordered a raid, destroying the elements required to build any type of transwarp technology, preventing me from opening any ground or space bridge, and my specimen is out of the requirements needed...

(We see the corpse of the Decepticon Skywarp lying on the lab table.)

Sky Byte: So you want us to capture Arcee and find out where they stashed the elements needed for teleporting yourself?

Tarantulas: Correct!!! Inferno here is my own handiwork. The result of me creating a new spark, infusing it within a dead Autobot, and reprogramming him as a Predacon, I'd have an army by now if it weren't for that meddling Arcee!!! I've been stranded in this swamp ever since then.

Sky Byte: What's in it for us?

Tarantulas: I have located your missing comrades on the planet known as Quintessa; once a space bridge is built you can rejoin them.

Sky Byte: And what do you gain from this?

Tarantulas: There is a fellow scientist involved in the disappearance of your teammates that I wish to do business with, then I, uh, we can complete our army and bring a new order to Cybertron, my, uh, our order.

Sky Byte: And what of the Autobots?

Tarantulas: Once I obtain the proper equipment, I can take my army back to when superior beings like me, uh, ourselves ruled Cybertron.

(Tarantulas types on the keyboard. A video is shown depicting a time period from long ago, Tarantulas is standing in the middle of the screen with an army laughing as he orders it to charge and various Cybertronians who charge back, all are killed, and Tarantulas is standing in the middle continuing to laugh.)

Tarantulas: (CT) If my theories on time manipulation are correct, this Jhiaxus as well as these Quintessons should have the necessary requirements for my time bridge.

Sky Byte: And we can erase all the Autobots from history?

(Tarantulas is checking a monitor.)

Tarantulas: It seems our guests have arrived. Care to welcome them?

(Sky Byte, The Battlechargers, Waspinator, and Inferno assemble in one line.)

Tarantulas: (CT) Arcee and the human girl are mine, but the rest are yours. Do with them as you please.

(Everyone but Tarantulas leaves the room.)

Tarantulas: (CT) Excellent… at long last the reign of Tarantulas shall begin. Haha Heheh BWAH HAHAHAHAHA MWA HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

New Orleans Docks

(Cue “Swamp Witch”)

(We see a shot of a ferry. The Indian Vendor that was on the streets earlier is now selling stuff on the boat. We zoom in on the front and the tour guide from before is shown to be standing there.)

Tour guide: Good afternoon and welcome to the New Orleans River Tour, though technically I guess it would be the New Orleans Swamp and River Tour, even though technically the swamp isn't a part of the tour, I could always tell some more ghost stories...

(She lowers her voice and laughs into the microphone.)

Tour guide (CT): We'd like to remind you that the huts and cabins seen in the swamp are simply someone's property and not the homes of witch doctors, at least not to my knowledge...any attempt to trespass will result in dealing with our boys in blue in addition to possible curses. Also please keep your hands and feet inside the ferry at all times, we're not responsible if they get eaten off by alligators...

(Minerva quickly pulls her legs off the side of the ferry. The ferry wades into the swamp when a group of people with binoculars are focused on a pointy blue object approaching the ferry.)

Crowd: Shark!!!!

Minerva: A shark in New Orleans?

(Minerva and Arcee exchange glances.)

Arcee: Oh you gotta be fraggin’ kidding me...

(They rush over to the crowd and Buster and Jesse give their binoculars to Minerva, standing on both sides of the blue object are two figures wearing pirate hats, both with eye patches wearing rags, and pointing their cutlass swords in the air. As they get closer, it's revealed to be Runabout, Runamuck, and Sky Byte.)

Runabout: Yo ho, yo ho, over the raging sea we go!!!!

(The Battlechargers jump off Sky Byte and onto the ferry, swinging their cutlasses and killing tourists.)

Battlechargers (In unison): Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me, we pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot, Drink up me hearties yo ho, we kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot, Drink up me hearties, yo ho.

(The Indian Vendor throws his things into a bag, jumps off the ferry, and wades through the water to the shore. Arcee and Minerva attempt to calm the panicking crowd down. A familiar voice gets Buster's attention, and he turns to see Sky Byte holding the captain hostage.)

Sky Byte: Surrender unless you want to spill more innocent blood...

(Buster grabs an oar off the wall, knocks Runabout and Runamuck into separate directions, then Buster twirls the oar and poses. We see Runabout flapping around and splashing.)

Runabout: Help, AHM scared of water!!!! AH can't swim!!!! AHM drowning!!!!

(Runamuck lands by the shore right in front of the Indian Vendor, making a big splash which causes a tide to come in and pull the Vendor's bag into the murky swamp.)

Vendor: My merchandise!!!!

(On the ferry, Buster confronts Sky Byte. Sky Byte charges with his sword but Buster blocks his blow, Sky Byte tries to strike from a few different angles but Buster blocks them all, then knocks Sky Byte back a few feet, then Sky Byte jumps in the air and slashes his sword, splitting Buster's sword in two.)

Sky Byte: You were a fool to try and face me, you wretched human.

(Waspinator and Inferno fly towards the boat.)

Jesse: Of all the vacations to not bring bug spray on!!!!

(Arcee tosses her a hand grenade.)

Jesse (CT): This will do nicely.

(She tosses the hand grenade at Waspinator and he hits a tree and lands in the water. A log drifts towards him, and then gets bigger as it's revealed to be an alligator.)

Waspinator: Zzzoinks!!!!

(Waspinator jumps into the air, bumping into Inferno who is starting to fire his gun. They both land back in front of the alligator and Waspinator jumps into Inferno's arms, as both shake, then Inferno picks up speed and runs off. Back on the ferry Sky Byte raises his sword to Buster's neck.)

Sky Byte: A worthy opponent even for a brief moment, but alas, duty robs me of dueling you again.

(A voice from the swamp interrupts Sky Byte.)

Voice: Swamp Chomp, Maximize!!!!

(An alligator themed Cybertronian jumps onto the ferry, his tail now in his hand and spinning, in his other hand is a spear type weapon, he moves towards Sky Byte and causes him to back up against the railing, and Sky Byte uses his sword to push Swamp Chomp towards the center of the ferry.)

Swamp Chomp: It's been a long time, old foe.

Sky Byte: But not long enough...

(Inferno fishes Runabout out of the water, then flies back into the sky and uses his gun to set the ferry on fire, cackling like a maniac as the ferry burns.)

Inferno: All those who pose a threat to the royalty will taste the hades of Inferno!!!!

(As the blaze spreads, Runabout and Runamuck climb onto the ferry and grab Arcee and Minerva, then Sky Byte grabs Jess and the trio jumps back into the water, while Buster is left stranded with Swamp Chomp on the sinking ferry...)

End of Act 2

Act 3

(We see a shot of Tarantulas’ lair. Sky Byte and the Battlechargers deliver the captured Autobots to Tarantulas.)

Inferno: We captured the conspirators, royalty.

(Minerva glances up at him.)

Minerva: Wait a minute, six foot tall spider, crazy and creepy. Isn’t this the guy you had that run in with back when you first met Rodimus?

Arcee: Unfortunately...yes.

Tarantulas: My name is slowly beginning to become one of the most feared in the universe. Considering my half dozen world domination schemes you and Rodimus ruined, it’s nice to hear they have a legacy. Cuff Arcee to the wall over there. Take the human girl and the other Autobot to the lab. I will be there momentarily to begin the reformatting process...

(Sky Byte and The Battlechargers leave the room with Jesse and Minerva.)

Arcee: The reformatting process, that sounds charming...

Tarantulas: The quicker we make this, the less painful it has to be. Where are they?

Arcee: Look bugface, I've dealt with lunatics who are even more insane than you, and even they had the common sense to use nouns. You're gonna have to be more specific as to who "they" are.

Tarantulas: Let me put this another way...

(Tarantulas changes into his spider mode and shoots a web at Arcee, wraps it around her right leg, yanks it off, then swallows it, letting out a huge burp. Arcee is yelling in pain after losing her leg.)

Tarantulas: That's nothing compared to what the late Rodimus Prime had to endure...

Arcee: What are you talking about?

Tarantulas: Word of his demise hasn't reached you yet? Shocking...

Arcee: You fragging piece of...he's alive, I can feel it. Considering your reputation for secrets, if you know where he is, you better let me go if you want to find what you're looking for.

Tarantulas: Either way you'll be reunited with him shortly. Now, where are they?

Arcee: What part of nouns do you not understand?

Tarantulas: I was going to be generous enough to bring you closer together in quite a unique way, but...

(Tarantulas spins another web around Arcee’s right arm, and then carefully wraps it around her right hand, letting threads attach to her fingers.)

Tarantulas: (CT) This little piggy went to the market...

(Removes one finger)

Tarantulas: (CT) This little piggy stayed home...

(Removes another finger)

Tarantulas: (CT) This little piggy had roast beef...

(Removes another finger)

Tarantulas: (CT) This little piggy had none...

(Removes another finger)

Tarantulas: (CT) And this little piggy ran wee-wee-wee all the way home.

(Tarantulas yanks off Arcee’s entire arm. As she screams, we see another view of the lair as Arcee's scream echoes into the night.)

(Meanwhile, Buster opens up the benches on the ferry and grabs some rafts tossing them into the water for the remaining tourists.)

Buster: Uh-oh there's not enough, think-think-think...

Swamp Chomp: Fear not comrade!!!!

(Swamp Chomp opens up his mouth and starts spouting water at the flames.)

Tour guide: (still frantic) It's still sinking!!!!! Why must the beautiful die young?????

Swamp Chomp: Don't worry my chére. The flames are all extinguished, making it safe to swim to shore.

Tour Guide: Oh, right... BUT WHAT ABOUT THE GATORS???

Swamp Chomp: Don't worry about them chére. I scared them so many times, they won't even think about trying to eat ya.

(The remaining tourists jump into the water and they swim to safety, Swamp Chomp dives off head first, followed by Buster.)

Swamp Chomp: Follow me, comrade!!!

Buster: You know where they've been taken?

Swamp Chomp: Ah yes. I've come across the spider many times but confronting them alone is foolish, no?

(Buster climbs on Swamp Chomp's back)

Swamp Chomp: There's a much better view on my head, comrade.

(Buster moves further up, as Swamp Chomp stands up, a panel opens up in his stomach, revealing a banjo, he holds it in one hand and starts strumming it with the other)

Buster: You're gonna sing at a time like this?

Swamp Chomp: It soothes the mood, comrade.

(Cue “Bayou Breeze”)

(An owl tilts its head at them for a minute, and then flies off with a captured frog. A snake slowly slithers from the branches, hissing in awe at the sound of the banjo and starts to sway from side to side. Frogs croak along with the music, and a spider attempts to snatch a captured dragonfly but a frog steals it.)

Swamp Chomp (CT): Gather ‘round, you'll hear a sound, ancient and mysterious, where banshees cry, and goblins sigh, in manners dark and curious, in this swamp where gators swim, there's much to fear you’ll see, but the spirits float adrift on the bayou breeze.

Swamp Chomp (CT): Mission bells and voodoo spells, the sounds of witches shrieking, listen close, you'll hear a ghost or a zombie choir weeping. In this swamp the spider's bite is wild I guarantee, and the spirits float adrift on the bayou breeze.

(A long pause is heard, filled in by the humming of unseen entities.)

Swamp Chomp (CT): In this swamp them spider's bite is wild I guarantee, and the spirits float adrift on the bayou breeze.

(Swamp Chomp puts his free hand on his chest and gurgles out then opens his mouth and sings a final note in a more tenor like manner)

Swamp Chomp (CT): On the bye-you breeze...

(They arrive in front of a cave.)

Swamp Chomp (CT): Hold your breath, comrade.

(Swamp Chomp dives underwater, then comes to a sewer grating and grips the bars with his teeth, then pulls it off, he and Buster enter and come to a series of vents, Swamp Chomp sniffs the air, and then points his head one way.)

Swamp Chomp: (CT) This way, comrade.

Buster: How do you know?

Swamp Chomp: I smell the shark...

(They look in the first vent and see a dark laboratory, but can make out bug shaped silhouettes that seem to be Cybertronian in a set of tanks. On a table in the center there are blueprints neither can make out from the vent.)

Buster: Look familiar?

Swamp Chomp: Seems they're Insecticons, but they were killed on Iacon...

(They crawl further down and see a room with the lights on and Buster makes out the heads of Minerva, Jesse and Tarantulas. He clenches his fist and tries to pull the vent off.)

Swamp Chomp: Not wise to confront the spider on your own, comrade.

(Buster moves forward and listens in.)

Minerva: What'd you do to Arcee? Why I oughta...

Tarantulas: I merely gave her a quicker way to be reunited with the poor unfortunate Rodimus, and don't be so snippy, you'll be reunited with the dearly departed Nightbeat in the same fashion...

Minerva: Rodimus and Nightbeat are...

(She starts to burst into tears but is interrupted by Jesse.)

Jesse: Personally, I wouldn't believe this guy. I overheard something about collecting live specimens from someone. Assuming that's them. What do you want with me anyways?

Tarantulas: You my dear are gonna be reformatted as my queen for when I take over the world. GWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Jesse: EWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!

(Buster and Swamp Chomp go further down and come to the vent that Inferno and the Battlechargers are marching by as they're guarding it.)

All three (in unison): The ants go marching three by three. Hoorah!!!! Hoorah!!!!

Swamp Chomp: Go back to the room with our other comrades, I'll create a distraction.

(Swamp Chomp again uses his teeth to bend the bars and rip the vent off, then opens his mouth and sprays acid in Runabout's face.)

Runabout: Ah eh ah!!! I can't see, oh no, I'm blind!!!

(Swamp Chomp transforms while still holding the vent cover. Runabout, attempting to fight Swamp Chomp accidentally punches out Runamuck. Inferno aims his flamethrower at Swamp Chomp but he uses the vent cover to block the fire. A confused Runamuck grabs Inferno and smashes him against the wall, and then Swamp Chomp uses the vent to knock Runabout unconscious. Tarantulas overhears the commotion.)

Tarantulas: What was that?

(Tarantulas sounds the alarm as Swamp Chomp is approaching the room, leaving him surrounded in the main entrance by Tarantulas, Sky Byte and Waspinator. Buster then uses a device resembling a pocket knife to pry open the vent, then when he gets out of the vent, uses it to free Minerva and Jesse. They run towards the main room where Swamp Chomp is getting blasted by Tarantulas and Waspinator while trying to duel Sky Byte. He falls to the ground, then Sky Byte picks him up.)

Sky Byte: So long, old foe.

(He tosses Swamp Chomp into the water.)

Buster: NOOOOO!!!!

(Jesse puts her hand on his shoulder.)

Jesse: We can't let his sacrifice be in vain. Minerva, Buster and I will grab the blueprints; you rescue Arcee while they're occupied.

(Jesse sneaks into the main lab in the front of the cave while Minerva goes to help Arcee. They turn around and Sky Byte spots Jesse with the blueprints.)

Sky Byte: No, you won't stop us from rescuing our leader!!!!

(They get in a tug of war over the blueprints and they accidentally tear them in half.)

Jesse: Now no one's rescued. Real smooth, sharkbreath.

(Sky Byte attempts to grab the plans from Jesse,)

Waspinator: Tarantulazzz izzz giving you to the Quintezzonzzz for zzzcrap anywayzzz!!!!

Sky Byte: What?!

(Tarantulas backs up but Sky Byte stabs him in the stomach with his sword and throws him into the water, where a now conscious Swamp Chomp awaits in beast mode with an open mouth. Tarantulas lets out a Wilhelm scream as he falls into his jaws. Sky Byte grabs the Battlechargers, changes to shark mode and flies off with them.)

Jesse: Great, now we're down another Autobot and we still have no way to rescue Rodimus and Nightbeat.

Buster: We'll just have to make them say uncle till they give us the other half.

Minerva: Well, I just need to get a new leg, Tarantulas left the other parts lying around so I can just reattach it.

(Waspinator flies up behind them.)

Waspinator: Wazzzpinator sayzzz you ain't going anywhere!!!

(Jesse grabs a grenade off of Minerva's utility belt and throws it at Waspinator, stunning him. They head towards the entrance where Swamp Chomp spits a gunk drenched Tarantulas.)

Tarantulas: I hate writers.

(Tarantulas faints as the Autobots approach the opening.)

(Cue “The Legend of Wooley Swamp”)

Buster: Now how are we getting home?

Swamp Chomp: I can help out, comrade!!!!

(Buster cries out in joy at Swamp Chomp's recovery. They all get on Swamp Chomp and head back to New Orleans.)

ACT ONE

FADE IN

CYBERTRON – THE MANGANESE MOUNTAINS

We see a shadowy figure standing in front of two sliding rock doors at the bottom of a hill. We see that he’s entering the doorway to the hill. He’s received by GLOWSTRIKE and SUNSTORM, JHIAXUS’ personal assistants and bodyguards. SUNSTORM looks exactly like an orange version of STARSCREAM. However, the key difference is that he’s a deadly and ruthless warrior on the battlefield. GLOWSTRIKE is a slim, red armored fighter. She’s beautiful yet very deadly and vicious. GLOWSTRIKE and SUNSTORM are both extremely loyal to JHIAXUS and they also have special powers. SUNSTORM can shoot fire from his hands, which can melt the metallic exterior of any opponent nearby, while GLOWSTRIKE has the ability to shoot lightning bolts from her hands, which can overload an enemy’s circuitry completely, causing them to short-circuit.

GLOWSTRIKE
(welcoming the shadowy figure)
Greetings, assassin.

SUNSTORM
(to the shadowy figure)
Jhiaxus has been expecting you.

Then, the shadowy figure follows GLOWSTRIKE and SUNSTORM into a throne room. We then see JHIAXUS sitting on the massive throne, towering over everyone present. He then starts addressing the shadowy figure.

JHIAXUS
(to the shadowy figure)
Welcome, Terrorsaur. I’ve heard a lot about you.

We then see TERRORSAUR for the very first time. Like SUNSTORM, he shares the same body-type as STARSCREAM. However, TERRORSAUR is completely red, with silver shoulders and legs and a bit of gold on him. He looks more threatening than STARSCREAM. He has a really deceptive look. Even though his silver face looks pretty friendly, you can tell there is something unsettling about him. The fact that he talks politely adds to his deceptiveness.

TERRORSAUR
(with a very sophisticated tone)
Then, you may have heard that my services are not free.

JHIAXUS orders GLOWSTRIKE to bring in a box full of Energon chips.

JHIAXUS
(while nodding to GLOWSTRIKE)
Oh, of course. That’s why I prepared for your arrival.

GLOWSTRIKE gives the box to TERRORSAUR. TERRORSAUR sees the contents of the box and he has a very satisfied glint in his red eyes.

TERRORSAUR
Very well, Lord Jhiaxus. We have a deal. Now, what’s the job???

JHIAXUS
Bring me the head of the Autobot Nurse Minerva. My Quintesson allies have informed me that this particular Autobot is very young and inexperienced, but she is not one to be underestimated. Her determination is strong, and could potentially foil my plans for the rebirth of Cybertron!!!

A regular assassin would normally refuse such a deal, but TERRORSAUR smirk, indicating that he has no qualms about killing a nurse, especially a young nurse like MINERVA, which demonstrates how cold and merciless he is.

TERRORSAUR
Very well. You want Minerva’s head??? You can have it. This inexperienced child may be very clever, but then again, so am I!!! You see, I have one very definite advantage over this girl. Like every other Autobot, she fights fair…and me? Well…

Suddenly, TERRORSAUR swiftly draws a knife from his wrist and throws it. The knife digs into the throne, right next to JHIAXUS’ head who had to narrowly dodge it. JHIAXUS is very impressed with the skill of this assassin as well as his underhanded methods.

TERRORSAUR
(after throwing the knife)
…I cheat!!!

JHIAXUS
(smiling)
Excellent display, assassin. Now go and track your prey. My drones will provide a distraction for the Autobots, so you can complete your task with ease.

TERRORSAUR then transforms into jet mode and takes off towards the Earth, followed by a battleship carrying JHIAXUS’ “New Cybertronian” troopers.

FADE IN TO

THE DECEPTICON BASE – THRONE ROOM

We see STARSCREAM shouting angrily to SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers after hearing about their alliance with the Predacons.

STARSCREAM
(furious)
HOW COULD YOU MAKE A DEAL WITH THOSE MISERABLY DISGUSTING CREATURES????!!!!

RUNABOUT
(trying to reason with STARSCREAM)
But boss. We had no choice!!!

RUNAMUCK
(trying to reason with STARSCREAM)
Yeah, there were ‘bots in there!!!

SKY-BYTE
With all due respect sir, it was the only course of action we could take.

STARSCREAM
(furious)
So, two little Autobot girls are too much for ya????!!!!! You’re all just so pathetic!!!
(to some Vehicons)
Guards, execute these three losers!!!

Then, we see some Vehicons enter the briefing room.

SKY-BYTE
(looking at the armed Vehicons)
In that case, I suppose we have only one choice.

Before the Vehicons have a chance to react, SKY-BYTE kicks STARSCREAM in the gut and sends him falling to the ground while the Battlechargers start swiftly fighting the Vehicons. Then, just as more Vehicons arrive, SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers jump out of the Decepticon ship and make a getaway. STARSCREAM then gets up and yells in anger.

STARSCREAM
(with rage)
YOU FOOLS!!!!!! YOU LET THOSE THREE NINCOMPOOPS GET AWAY!!!!!! FIND THEM, AND DESTROY THEM!!!!

FADE IN TO

THE AUTOBOT BASE – HALL

We see DAYTONUS walking through the hall. Then, he enters MINERVA’S room. We see that MINERVA is watching an old video of her playing in the snow along with RODIMUS, NIGHTBEAT and ARCEE. On-screen, we first see MINERVA and NIGHTBEAT throwing snowballs at RODIMUS and ARCEE.

RODIMUS
(on tape, getting hit by a snowball)
What the--???!!!

ARCEE
(on tape, getting hit by another snowball)
Hey, who did---???!!

NIGHTBEAT
(on tape, throwing snowballs)
Snowball fight!!!!!!

MINERVA
(on tape, throwing snowballs, to RODIMUS and ARCEE)
Take this, ‘cons!!!

RODIMUS
(on tape, imitating SHOCKWAVE)
That was an illogical move, kid!!!

ARCEE
(on tape, imitating TANKOR)
ME SMASH AUTOBOTS!!!!

NIGHTBEAT
(on tape, playfully, to MINERVA)
Whoa, look out!!! They’re fighting back!!!!

MINERVA then sniffles while watching the video, fighting back tears. She dearly misses RODIMUS and NIGHTBEAT. It’s at this point that DAYTONUS walks in and starts talking to her.

DAYTONUS
(comforting MINERVA)
You really miss ‘em, dontchya???!!

MINERVA turns around and sees DAYTONUS. She then bursts into tears and runs towards him, immediately hugging him, with DAYTONUS hugging her back.

DAYTONUS
(calming MINERVA down, patting her on the back)
There, there. Shh, everythin’s gonna be alright.

Suddenly, the alarm rings, DAYTONUS and MINERVA release the hug and all of the Autobots immediately head towards the briefing room.

HOSEHEAD
(concerned)
What’s wrong???

WHEELJACK
(checking the computer along with SMOKESCREEN)
There’s a really big battleship heading this way, being led by what looks like a jet in attack position.

ARCEE
‘Cons???

SMOKESCREEN
I’ve seen a lot of ‘cons in my life, and lemme tell ya’, they sure don’t look like ‘cons to me!!!

ARCEE
Well, since they’re hostile, we’ll just have to defend the base.
(to all the Autobots, with an inspiring tone)
Okay, ‘bots!!! Time to rock!!!!

The Autobots prepare for battle while MINERVA and SIREN head towards the armory and climb onto a giant tank, specifically designed for the Autobots. The rest of the Autobots start engaging JHIAXUS’ drones. Meanwhile, from inside the battleship, a giant tank comes out. TERRORSAUR then transforms into robot mode and climbs aboard the tank while the drones that were driving it jump out of it in order to fight the Autobots. TERRORSAUR gets in the tank and starts driving it for the time being, but he doesn’t see MINERVA anywhere.

TERRORSAUR
(while driving the tank)
Now where’s that nurse???!!!

Suddenly, a blast goes off behind TERRORSAUR.

TERRORSAUR
(ticked off)
What????!!!!

We see SIREN driving the giant Autobot tank, with MINERVA hanging off of the side of it with one hand, carrying a giant rocket launcher in the other.

TERRORSAUR
(to himself)
She’s here at last!!!!

MINERVA then fires off another rocket. TERRORSAUR jumps out of the tank, carrying a mortar before the tank gets hit by MINERVA’S rocket. TERRORSAUR fires the mortar in midair and it strikes the Autobot tank. Siren and Minerva then fly off and fall to the ground, unconscious.

SIREN
(flying off)
YOWWWWW!!!!

After punching out one of JHIAXUS’ drones, ARCEE then sees the two Autobots lying on the ground.

ARCEE
(desperate)
MINERVA!!!!!

ARCEE then desperately runs to help both the young nurse and SIREN. BUMBLEBEE, DAYTONUS and SMOKESCREEN try to follow her, but a fuel line goes off and cuts off their path. We then see MINERVA getting up.

TERRORSAUR
(pointing at MINERVA, with a menacing tone)
You, young one. You must be destroyed!!!

TERRORSAUR then proceeds to pull a poisoned staff out of the straps over his back and aims it at MINERVA. However, ARCEE comes in and hits TERRORSAUR before he even gets a chance to throw it.

TERRORSAUR
(getting hit)
AAAAAA!!!

MINERVA
(desperate)
ARCEE!!!!!!!

ARCEE and TERRORSAUR struggle for a brief moment before TERRORSAUR shoves ARCEE against the ground. Then, he grabs the staff once again.

TERRORSAUR
(preparing to throw the staff)
Die, Autobot scum!!!!

TERRORSAUR throws the staff towards MINERVA. However, ARCEE swiftly gets up and jumps in front of the young nurse.

ARCEE
(jumping in front of MINERVA)
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

The poisoned staff hits ARCEE in the chest, right through her spark. ARCEE’S expression of pain then turns into one of shock, and she starts falling to the ground slowly.

MINERVA
(shocked)
Arcee???!!!

MINERVA then proceeds to pull the staff out of ARCEE'S chest.

TERRORSAUR
(to MINERVA, victoriously)
She may have taken the poison meant for your spark, but her sacrifice will be in vain!!! The next time we meet, you will be the one to fall!!!!

Then, the other Autobots arrive and react with shock at Arcee's condition.

ARCEE
(to MINERVA, struggling, but with an inspiring tone)
I guess I can't help you anymore, kid.

MINERVA
(with a sad tone)
Don't say that, Arcee!!! I can fix ya up!!!

ARCEE
(struggling, but keeping her sense of humor)
This isn't a day for miracles. It's my own fault...too slow...

MINERVA
(with a sad tone)
No!!! No!!! You did it to save me!!!

ARCEE
(struggling, but with an inspiring tone)
Promise me that no matter what happens...you'll keep fighting on...for all the people you love.

MINERVA
(emotional)
I-I'll make you proud!!! You'll see!!!

ARCEE
(struggling)
Till all are one!!!

With those last words, ARCEE passes out.

MINERVA
(to the other Autobots, crying)
She's gone into a coma.

MINERVA then hugs the unconscious body of ARCEE, holding her tightly in her arms. We see that the other Autobots are looking at her with forlorn expressions, because they know that out of all the members of the team, the young nurse is the one that has suffered the most. First, she lost her paternal figure RODIMUS and her beloved NIGHTBEAT in the black hole, and now, her maternal figure is on the fine line between life and death. MINERVA has never felt so lonely in her entire life. SMOKESCREEN then approaches MINERVA and puts his hand on her shoulder, comforting her.

SMOKESCREEN
(with a warm tone)
Minerva, don't worry. We'll do everything we can for her.

Smokescreen then looks back and we see tears coming out of his eyes.

SMOKESCREEN
(holding back his emotions)
Till all are one.

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

THE AUTOBOT BASE – BRIEFING ROOM

We see WHEELJACK, SIREN and SMOKESCREEN discussing ARCEE’S condition.

SMOKESCREEN
(concerned)
How’s she doin’???

WHEELJACK
(sad)
I’m no medic, but I don’t think she’ll make it. She’s still alive, but the poison is killing her slowly.

SIREN
Any good news???

WHEELJACK
(sad)
Nope. The only thing that can save her now is a miracle.

Meanwhile, we see that there’s a transmission coming from the Police Station and the Autobots react to this. We see Inspector SHAYNE on TELETRAAN-I’S monitor.

SIREN
Yeah, Inspector???

SHAYNE
We just got a transmission from some wacko who says he wants to talk to you.

SMOKESCREEN
(to SHAYNE)
Put him on screen.

Then, we see TERRORSAUR addressing the Autobots.

TERRORSAUR
(to the Autobots)
Attention, miserable Autobots. I am Terrorsaur. I’m here to tell you that there’s one among you that must be destroyed.

We then see MINERVA in her repair bay. She’s overhearing everything TERRORSAUR is saying.

TERRORSAUR
(continued)
If you do not bring the Autobot Minerva to me, I’ll be forced to destroy the entire city of Portland!!! Will you give up the girl, or will the city go up in flames??? The choice is yours.

The transmission ends. Then, we see that the three Autobots are pretty worried about this new development.

WHEELJACK
(desperate)
What can we do now???!!!

SMOKESCREEN
We can’t just let the humans in Portland die, but we can’t let that psycho have Minerva either!!!

Meanwhile, inside the repair bay, MINERVA starts talking to the unconscious ARCEE, who has a peaceful expression on her sleeping face. No signs of pain or sadness, just peace.

MINERVA
(with a sad tone, to ARCEE)
Why is this happening???? Everything’s falling apart. Am I really a bad luck charm??? If so, then it’s time to end all this bad luck. I’m going to fight Terrorsaur. It’s not for revenge. You always taught me that revenge brings nothing but pain. But, I have to face him, because if I don’t, Portland will suffer the same fate as Iacon. I’m not going to lie, I’m really worried, but then again, it’s for the best. I’ve caused enough pain and suffering, and it’s time to end it. Goodbye, Arcee. I hope we meet again in the AllSpark.

MINERVA then kisses ARCEE’S forehead, grabs a jetpack and runs off without being noticed. Then, DAYTONUS heads toward the repair bay and sees ARCEE alone. He decides it’s time to finally express his feelings. He enters the repair bay and he starts talking to ARCEE.

DAYTONUS
(to ARCEE, trying to hold back his emotions)
How ya doing, ‘Cee? They wouldn't let me stay before, but I'm here now. Side Burn says hello, so... "Hello"... he misses you, y'know... Ya can't do this, a lot of people count on ya, y'know. Minerva, Hosehead, Smokescreen, 'Bee, Rev... Ya can't go yet, ya got a whole lifetime ahead of ya, y'know. I mean ya haven't even found Roddy and Nightbeat yet, they're out there somewhere, probably sufferin'... they need ya. I need ya! You're like the mama I never had, and I've never said that before but I'm saying that now. You're the mama I never had, and I don't wanna lose ya.

DAYTONUS sees ARCEE’S peaceful face and heads toward a corner of the repair bay. Then, he knocks on a table as if it was a door and he starts praying to PRIMUS.

DAYTONUS
(talking while looking up)
Ey... uh... Sir? Gotta have a little chat here. It's my friend Arcee and she's in really bad shape. Now, I know you know that, but the world's kinda goin' a little wacko, y'know, and... uhh...
(breaking up)
Ya need people down here like her, and if you don't, I do!
(breaks up even more)
I-I can fix a lot of things but... um... this one is all yours, so... let's make a little deal.
(barely speaking)
You do this for me... and I'll owe ya one!

DAYTONUS then bursts into tears and feels totally helpless. However, he doesn't seem to notice that ARCEE’S hand is starting to move. We also see that ARCEE’S internal systems are starting to eliminate all the poison in her body. Suddenly, we hear a weak, but very hopeful groan which shocks DAYTONUS.

ARCEE
(groaning)
Uhhhhhh…. Daytonus???!!!

Suddenly, DAYTONUS turns around and sees that ARCEE is moving her hand. He now starts crying with joy and hugs her.

DAYTONUS
(emotional)
Pink gal???!!! Oh, Pink gal, you’re back!!!!
(looking up, emotional)
Thanks for bringing her back, sir.
(hugging ARCEE)
I thought we lost ya.

ARCEE
(groaning)
Mhm… muuuhhhhh….

DAYTONUS
(concerned)
What is it???!!!

ARCEE
(groaning)
Muhhhhh… Minerva…

DAYTONUS now looks shocked. He knew how guilty MINERVA felt about this, and he just now realizes where she is.

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

PORTLAND – THE WASHINGTON PARK

We see TERRORSAUR waiting in the Washington Park. Suddenly, he hears the sound of an engine getting closer and closer. It’s MINERVA. She then transforms into robot mode and dons the jetpack just in case TERRORSAUR wants to fight in the sky.

TERRORSAUR
(with a charming attitude)
Well, Minerva. It seems you’ve finally decided to give in.

MINERVA
(with a defiant tone)
You may have me, but if you wanna kill me, you’ll have to fight me first!!!

TERRORSAUR
(smiling)
This is gonna be fun, my dear girl.

MINERVA then charges towards TERRORSAUR. However, the assassin dons the deadliest weapon in his arsenal: two photon-powered gloves. He blasts MINERVA with the gloves and sends her flying off. MINERVA swiftly gets up, but the photon rays prevent her from attacking TERRORSAUR head on. Although we’ve seen TERRORSAUR as a pretty cool-headed assassin, we now see that he’s showing his true colors. He starts taunting MINERVA with a manic tone.

TERRORSAUR
(yelling maniacally, shooting rays at MINERVA)
COME CLOSER, I DARE YOU!!!! YOU’RE AFRAID OF ME!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!!!! MINERVA IS AFRAID OF ME!!!!!

The rays hit MINERVA and she gets hurled into a nearby lake. There is no movement for a moment. Then, TERRORSAUR starts laughing maniacally.

TERRORSAUR
(laughing maniacally)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!! I said I’d finish you and I did!!!! You’re dead now, sleeping with the fishes!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

Suddenly, MINERVA comes out of the lake and jumps on TERRORSAUR.

MINERVA
(jumping on TERRORSAUR)
Peek-a-boo!!!

TERRORSAUR
(furious)
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO KILL YOU????!!!!!

MINERVA
(defiantly)
All that you’ve got, mac!!!

TERRORSAUR
(trying to get MINERVA off his back)
YOU’RE CRAZY, YOU FOOL!!!! I’LL FINISH YOU NOW!!!! NOW!!!!

MINERVA
You’ll exhaust your Energon, Terrorsaur!!!! Why don’t you just give up???!!!

TERRORSAUR
(furious)
IT WON’T BE EXHAUSTED BEFORE I’M DONE WITH YOU!!! I’LL TEAR YOUR HEAD OFF!!!!

TERRORSAUR then grabs and electrocutes MINERVA, and now he has the upper hand.

MINERVA
(getting electrocuted)
AAGGGHH!!!

TERRORSAUR
(grabbing MINERVA)
NOW I’VE GOT YOU!!!!!

TERRORSAUR then blasts MINERVA with his gloves, sending her falling to the ground.

MINERVA
(desperate, getting hit by TERRORSAUR’S photon rays)
NO!!!! NOOOO!!!!!!!

TERRORSAUR
(laughing maniacally)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!! SAY YOUR PRAYERS, MINERVA!!!! THIS IS THE END!!!!!

MINERVA
(in pain)
I… must… fight it…

Suddenly, MINERVA finds a rock. She grabs it and throws it at TERRORSAUR. The impact briefly stuns him, and it gives MINERVA a chance to get the upper hand.

MINERVA
NOW IS MY CHANCE!!!! NOW!!!!!

MINERVA then activates her jetpack and takes off, she then grabs TERRORSAUR and tries to restrain him. They’re now flying above the Hawthorne Bridge.

TERRORSAUR
(furiously struggling)
I’LL KILL YOU!!!! I’LL KILL YOU!!!!

MINERVA
I’ll just take those gloves off your hands!!!

TERRORSAUR
(with rage)
NOOOOOOO!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

MINERVA
(struggling to get the gloves)
I’ll get ‘em if I have to…!!!!
(reacting to TERRORSAUR grabbing her shoulders)
AGGGHH!!! Take your hands off my shoulders!!!! No, the photon rays… I feel… so weak!!!

TERRORSAUR
(furious)
I WARNED YOU, YOU FOOL!!!! I SAID I’D FINISH YOU!!!! NOW I WILL, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! DIE, MINERVA, DIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

MINERVA
(struggling)
No!!! Stop it!!! My strength… is almost… gone!!!! I… I’ll drop you!!!!

TERRORSAUR
(screaming maniacally)
DIEEEEEEE!!!!! DIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

MINERVA
(fainting)
OHHHHHHHH!!!!

Suddenly, MINERVA falls unconscious and TERRORSAUR’S beams accidentally destroy her jetpack, causing both opponents to fall to their almost certain doom. TERRORSAUR falls while he still has his gloves activated. Unlike STARSCREAM, he doesn’t have the ability to fly in robot mode, and he can’t transform while using the gloves.

TERRORSAUR
(screaming in horror)
MINERVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Suddenly, TERRORSAUR falls into the Willamette River. His gloves then explode when he lands, apparently pulverizing him. MINERVA lands on top of an abandoned warehouse. We then see DAYTONUS driving to MINERVA’S aid. We then fade in to a scene in MINERVA’S repair bay. MINERVA is in bed, sleeping peacefully. She then wakes up, dazed and weakened.

ARCEE
(with warmth)
Good morning, kid.

MINERVA then turns and sees ARCEE also lying in her bed.

MINERVA
(weak but emotional)
Arcee, you’re alright!!! But how???!!!

DAYTONUS then comes in.

DAYTONUS
(happy)
Eyyyyyy, how’re my two favorite gals feelin’ today???!!

MINERVA
(smiling)
We’re fine, thanks for asking.

ARCEE
(smiling)
I’m really proud of you two.
(to DAYTONUS)
Daytonus, you’re a very unique young man. Most teenagers tend to be reckless and impatient, but you’re not like that at all, you’re so kind and caring. You really are special, thank you so much for saving my life.

ARCEE then kisses DAYTONUS on the cheek. We see that DAYTONUS is blushing and smiling.

DAYTONUS
(blushing, with a higher pitch)
Whoa!!!!

Then, ARCEE looks at MINERVA.

ARCEE
(to MINERVA)
Minerva, you have faced all your challenges bravely, you managed to overcome Terrorsaur and you saved the lives of everyone in Portland.
(to DAYTONUS and MINERVA)
You two are young, but you are also our hope for the future. Rodimus would be pretty proud of you both.

DAYTONUS and MINERVA react to ARCEE’S words with a very warm smile. They approach her and hug her. ARCEE then looks at us.

ARCEE
(smiling, to us)
Kids… you gotta love ‘em…

ACT ONE

FADE IN

THE DECEPTICON SHIP – ENGINE ROOM

We see MINERVA frantically running from STARSCREAM, who is leading a large army of Vehicons. She’s carrying a small object in her hands: the Decepticon ship’s fusion reactor. Without it, the ship’s flight capabilities are lost. At the same time, in the control room, KNOCK OUT is checking the status of the ship and we hear a strange beeping sound coming from the blip on the monitor.

KNOCK OUT
(shocked)
What in blazes????!!!! THE ENGINES AREN’T RESPONDING!!!!!

Then, we see that the ship starts falling into the Oregon desert. Back inside, MINERVA enters the ship’s portal room. However, QUAKE and THUNDERHOOF are standing guard inside.

QUAKE
(with a threatening tone, to MINERVA)
So, you stupid enfermera, think you’re gonna get past us, huh???!!!

MINERVA
(with a playful tone, running towards THUNDERHOOF and QUAKE)
As a matter of fact, yeah!!!

Then, we immediately cut to the hallway and we see THUNDERHOOF and QUAKE comically getting thrown out of the room.

QUAKE, THUNDERHOOF
(getting thrown, in unison)
OOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW!!!!
EH-OOOOOOOOOOOOH!!!!!!

MINERVA then sets the portal’s coordinates and activates it temporarily. Then, she jumps into the portal and it deactivates soon afterwards. Outside, we see that the Decepticon ship crash-lands in the middle of the Oregon desert. We then hear a furious scream coming out of the ship.

STARSCREAM
(furious, from inside the ship)
I want that nurse’s head!!! THIS I COMMAND!!!!

FADE IN TO

THE AUTOBOT BASE – BRIEFING ROOM

We see ARCEE, DAYTONUS, SMOKESCREEN and WHEELJACK waiting for MINERVA. Then, we see that she’s coming into the base at top speed. She transforms to robot mode and gives the reactor to WHEELJACK.

WHEELJACK
(surprised)
Awesome work, Minerva!!! You outsmarted the ‘cons and brought the fusion reactor to us, safe and sound.

WHEELJACK then takes a diminutive chip from the reactor.

WHEELJACK
(showing the chip)
With this chip, we can build a transmitter powerful enough to track the sparks of our missing friends. It’ll take some time, but it’s the only hope we’ve got at finding them.

ARCEE
(proud)
Awesome, Wheeljack. Now we can…

However, before ARCEE can finish her sentence, TELETRAAN-I’S emergency alarm starts ringing. DAYTONUS punches TELETRAAN-I and we see STRONGARM on the monitor.

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude)
Eyyyyy, wha’s up, copper babe???

STRONGARM
There’s a major firefight in progress at Blackrock Enterprises.

SMOKESCREEN
Boy, and just when Mr. Blackrock had another meeting. Do you know who’s behind this?

STRONGARM
The report says that it’s some hammy wacko with a horrible fish stench and two cackling punks.

SMOKESCREEN
(playfully)
Ah, lemme guess… Sky-Byte and the Battlechargers.

MINERVA
(figuring out something)
Hey, those three were the only guys that weren’t on board the ‘con ship!!!

SMOKESCREEN
Really, you didn’t see them at all?

MINERVA
Nope, I dunno why, but I get the feeling that ol’ Screamer may have fired them.

ARCEE
In that case, it looks like we’re dealing with a much bigger threat. Sky-Byte has proven himself to be much more dangerous than Starscream and his cronies combined, so we have to be careful.
(with an inspiring sound)
Okay, ‘bots. Transform and roll out!!!

The Autobots transform and roll onwards to their destination. Meanwhile, we see a large number of police officers surrounding the main Blackrock Enterprises building. Some officers enter the building and start shooting at three familiar figures who are taking cover behind some large tanks. One of them starts talking.

RUNABOUT
(worried, to SKY-BYTE)
Uh, boss!!! This ain’t workin’!!!!

SKY-BYTE
(with an authoritative tone)
You two must hold them off!!! I’ll get the chemicals!!!!

SKY-BYTE then runs toward the chemical lab and dramatically jumps inside the lab.

RUNABOUT
(worried)
Okay, but our blasters are gettin’ awfully low on Energon!!!

RUNAMUCK
(excited, without paying attention to his low energy levels)
EAT FRICTION BLASTS, COPS!!!!

Inside the lab, SKY-BYTE grabs some chemical bottles and pours the chemicals into a metallic barrel with wheels at the bottom.

SKY-BYTE
(pouring the chemicals)
Just the right mixture of simple chemicals packs quite a punch!!!

Outside the lab, the Battlechargers are still engaging the police, but suddenly, their weapons stop working.

RUNAMUCK
(worried)
Uh-oh, out of juice!!!!

Then, SKY-BYTE comes out of the lab with the barrel and pushes it towards the police.

SKY-BYTE
(with a menacing tone, while pushing the barrel)
SKY-BYTE SURRENDERS TO NO ONE!!!!

The barrel then rolls swiftly toward the officers.

POLICE OFFICERS
(intensely screaming)
It’s gonna blow!!!
Move it!!!
Get outta here!!!

SKY-BYTE then enters the room where BLACKROCK’S Warp Gate is stored. He then sets coordinates into the Gate’s computer and the gate opens. The Battlechargers then enter the room.

SKY-BYTE
(to the Battlechargers)
Let’s go!!!!

The three renegade Decepticons jump into the Gate and end up in a village on another planet. The Gate is still open.

RUNABOUT
(relieved)
Gee, boss!!!! Heheheheheheheheh, you sure bluffed yo’ way outta that one!!!

Suddenly, an explosion is heard from inside the Gate and the Battlechargers dive to the ground while SKY-BYTE is still standing.

SKY-BYTE
(with a very menacing tone)
I never bluff!!!

Then, SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers run towards a castle located far from the village. Suddenly, they are stopped by two strange looking drones. They are the TRUCK DRONES. They talk with a very peculiar speech pattern. Their voices are pretty light with a very odd, indistinguishable accent and the way they talk makes them seem very confused in general.

TRUCK DRONE #1
(with a strange accent and unusual delivery)
Oh, HAI, stranger!!! Why you come here????!!!

SKY-BYTE
We have come to meet your ruler. Will you take us to him?

TRUCK DRONE #2
(leading SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers to the castle)
Hahaha, what a story, stranger.

The three Decepticons are being led by the two TRUCK DRONES into the castle. While going through the hallway, we see a large amount of TRUCK DRONES either talking to themselves or incoherently interacting with each other.

TRUCK DRONE #3
I’m going to take a nap.

TRUCK DRONE #4
(sounding somewhat desperate)
THIS IS NAHT MY HOUSE!!! I was just PREHPERING an egg breakfast!!!!
(starting to cry)
Is NAHT my house!!! This is NAHT my house!!!

TRUCK DRONE #5
I did NAHT hit HAHR, it’s NAHT true, it’s pure scrap, I did NAHT hit her!!! I DID NAHT!!!
(looking at another TRUCK DRONE)
Oh, HAI, Truck Drone!!!

TRUCK DRONE #6
(doing a very stiff JAMES DEAN impression)
You are TEHRING me apart, Truck Drone!!!
Then, we come into the throne room and we see OBSIDIAN, ruler of the planet of Eukaris. He is hunched over. He has dark grey armor and long wiry fingers, along with two wings with propellers on his shoulders. He is a brilliant military strategist and a brutal fighter as well. He talks with a very sophisticated tone. He seems to recognize SKY-BYTE immediately.

OBSIDIAN
(greeting the renegade Decepticons)
Welcome, Sky-Byte. I’ve heard a lot about you, your fighting skills are legendary. But, please, tell me why you have come.

SKY-BYTE
We have been exiled from the Decepticons. We also heard that you need more troopers in your struggle against the ever-rising rebellion, so we opened a portal and arrived here so that we could assist you. No easy task, I assure you.

OBSIDIAN
Hmmmm, an interesting tale. Now, tell me, why were you exiled?

SKY-BYTE
To be blunt, Starscream, the current leader of the Decepticons, is a complete moron. He has taken all of the Energon for himself, he always calls for a retreat before we even get a chance to engage the Autobots and he doesn’t know the meaning of the word strategy. He exiled us after we made an alliance with the Predacons.

OBSIDIAN
Hmmm, I see. Very well, you are welcome to stay. I will put your skills to good use. Incidentally, I have just prepared a squadron of Truck Drones to invade that nearby village. Would you care to join us and see how it turns out???

SKY-BYTE
Oh, yes. I really would like to see how effective your invasion is.

OBSIDIAN, SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers head to the roof of the castle, where OBSIDIAN is looking down at his army marching towards the village. The Battlechargers are very impressed by the number of TRUCK DRONES heading into battle.

RUNABOUT
(excited, to RUNAMUCK)
Yo, look!!!!

RUNAMUCK
(excited, to RUNABOUT)
Boy, if only our army was this scary!!!

FADE IN TO

BLACKROCK ENTERPRISES – INTERIOR

We see the Autobots checking the wreckage SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers left behind during their battle.

SMOKESCREEN
Yup, looks like Sky-Byte’s handiwork to me.

Meanwhile, we hear the sound of a jet engine coming closer and closer.

MINERVA
(drawing her Shock Gun)
Decepticons!!!

DAYTONUS
(calming MINERVA down)
Eyyyy, relax dudette!!! It’s just my ol’ pal Breakaway comin’ in!!!

We then see a very sleek looking jet landing outside the building. G.B. BLACKROCK climbs down from the jet, and the jet transforms into robot mode. This is BREAKAWAY, an old friend of DAYTONUS and the Autobots’ Laser Trooper. He is unique among the Autobots because of his excellent marksmanship. He never misses. Although a really fast and swift fighter in jet mode, his personality is the complete opposite. He’s a laidback, cool-headed and extremely patient Autobot, which really makes him a formidable sniper. BLACKROCK and BREAKAWAY enter the building and BLACKROCK is shocked by all the damage he sees.

BLACKROCK
(shocked)
Holy smokes!!!!!

However, he also notices that the door to the Warp Gate room is also open. He enters the room and sees that the Gate is open.

BLACKROCK
(to the Autobots)
Autobots, come quickly!!! The Warp Gate is open!!!

The Autobots enter the room and check the Warp Gate. BREAKAWAY checks the monitor.

BREAKAWAY
(with a very relaxed tone and attitude)
Well, it seems like our troublemakers went off to visit another world.

ARCEE
(concerned)
I don’t like doing this, but I think we’ll have to split up. I’ll stay here in case the ‘cons try to attack. You guys go through the Gate and find those three castaways. Smokescreen, you’re in charge.

SMOKESCREEN
(with a doubtful tone)
Okay, if you say so.

Then, SMOKESCREEN, WHEELJACK, MINERVA, DAYTONUS and BREAKAWAY jump into the Warp Gate and are taken to the desert in Eukaris. When they arrive, the Gate closes behind them. However, they suddenly notice a massive army of TRUCK DRONES heading towards the Eukarian village we saw before.

SMOKESCREEN
(to himself)
Boy, nice going, Smokescreen!!! You dropped your fellow ‘bots right in the middle of a battle!!!!

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

EUKARIS – DESERT

We see the TRUCK DRONES heading towards the village, while the Autobots take cover behind a large rock formation.

DAYTONUS
(looking worried, pointing at the TRUCK DRONES)
Ey, boys!!! Look!!!

We then see the TRUCK DRONES destroying various houses and settlements while a large number of villagers run for their lives.

BREAKAWAY
(shocked)
Those Drones are destroying that village!!!!

MINERVA then sees a Eukarian family running from their home with their baby right before the house is destroyed. The father then speaks with despair.

EUKARIAN VILLAGER
(with despair and sadness)
Why are the Truck Drones doing this to us???!!!

MINERVA reacts with shock to this and then, she thinks back to something from her past and we see a flashback from part four of “The Search”. We see the part when MINERVA finds the lifeless body of the Neutral boy lying on the ground of the city of Iacon.

MINERVA (flashback)
(crying)
Those beasts!!! How could they do this to an innocent little boy!!!
(yelling furiously)
I’LL MAKE THEM PAY FOR THIS!!!

MINERVA’S expression of shock then turns into one of complete anger.

MINERVA
(angrily)
We can’t let ‘em get away with this!!!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(with determination, leading the Autobots to battle)
Then let’s kick some afterburners!!!!!

SMOKESCREEN and the Autobots charge towards the TRUCK DRONES. The TRUCK DRONES are still destroying houses while villagers run away in terror from them. Suddenly, DAYTONUS jumps onto a TRUCK DRONE.

DAYTONUS
(jumping onto a TRUCK DRONE)
Ey, dude!!! Ya want a piece of me????!!!!!

TRUCK DRONE #4
(struggling)
Eaaaaugh!!!

The TRUCK DRONE struggles for a moment, but DAYTONUS manages to punch him, knocking him out. DAYTONUS then grabs the TRUCK DRONE’S laser rifle and starts shooting at the other TRUCK DRONES.

TRUCK DRONE #1
(to DAYTONUS)
You just a chicken: CHEEP CHEEP CHEEP CHEEP CHEEP CHEEEEEEP!!!!!

DAYTONUS
(blasting the TRUCK DRONE to oblivion)
Nobody calls the Fonz-Tonus chicken!!!!

Suddenly, a hover tank is firing at MINERVA. MINERVA jumps on top of the tank, and then, a TRUCK DRONE comes out of the hatch and tries to shoot MINERVA, but the young nurse dodges and swiftly throws him out of the tank. She then enters the tank and introduces herself to the TRUCK DRONES driving the tank.

MINERVA
(imitating JACK NICHOLSON)
Here’s nursey!!!!!

Then, the two TRUCK DRONES inside the tank get thrown out. MINERVA then sits at the control panel.

MINERVA
(smiling, to herself)
Y’know, I always wanted to play with one of these things!!!

Then, MINERVA starts manning the tank. Meanwhile, BREAKAWAY stands still on top of a hill. He’s holding his Fusion Beam Sniper Rifle steadily. Then, a laser beam comes out of the Sniper Rifle and it hits a TRUCK DRONE in the head.

TRUCK DRONE #3
(malfunctioning, after getting hit by BREAKAWAY’S Sniper Rifle)
WHOAAAAHAAAH!!! YOU TOO POWERFUL FOR ME!!!!! AAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!

The TRUCK DRONE then falls to the ground. Then, we see SMOKESCREEN and WHEELJACK taking on more TRUCK DRONES.

WHEELJACK
(to the TRUCK DRONES)
Where did ya guys learn to fight??? At clown school????!!!!

Then, both WHEELJACK and SMOKESCREEN easily defeat the TRUCK DRONES attacking them. Then, we see MINERVA manning the hover tank she just took over from the TRUCK DRONES. She aims at another incoming hover tank.

MINERVA
(taunting the TRUCK DRONES)
Get ready for a taste of your own firepower, weirdos!!!!

MINERVA blasts the tank in front of her, and three TRUCK DRONES jump out of it before it explodes. However, we then see a giant crawler crane with a wrecking ball heading towards the village. Then, the Autobots see a strange, futuristic jet heading towards the crane.

SMOKESCREEN
(shocked)
What was that???!!!!

WHEELJACK
I dunno, but sure I hope it’s friendly!!!

The futuristic jet is right on top of the crane and it transforms into an exotically beautiful female robot, with a very distinctive avian look. She lands on top of the crane and taunts the TRUCK DRONES inside of it. Her voice is just as distinctive as her looks. It’s a very husky yet soothing and seductive voice.

AIRAZOR
(with a playful attitude)
Uh, guys??? I’d jump if I were you!!!

AIRAZOR then tosses a grenade into the crane and transforms back into jet mode and takes off. The TRUCK DRONES inside the crane jump out of it in terror right before it explodes. Then, we see all the remaining TRUCK DRONES retreating in fear from the Autobots and their new ally.

SMOKESCREEN
(celebrating)
Oh, yeah!!!! We saved the village!!!!

MINERVA
(climbing out of the tank, looking at AIRAZOR)
Yeah, thanks to her.

We then see AIRAZOR walking toward the Autobots.

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

EUKARIS – DESERT

We see the Autobots looking at AIRAZOR heading toward them. WHEELJACK looks at her with shock. He has never seen such beauty in his entire life. AIRAZOR then looks at WHEELJACK and she also seems to be attracted to him. However, her attention is diverted just when SMOKESCREEN starts talking.

SMOKESCREEN
(to AIRAZOR)
Whoever you are, thanks for helping us out.

AIRAZOR
(introducing herself to the Autobots)
My name is Airazor. I’m the leader of the Eukarian Rebellion. We fight against the tyranny of Obsidian.

SMOKESCREEN
(apparently remembering something)
Obsidian… hm, I’m not sure, but I think I’ve heard that name before…

AIRAZOR
Well, you can tell me who you are while we head to the hideout.

The Autobots then follow AIRAZOR towards the hideout of the Eukarian Rebellion.

FADE IN TO

OBSIDIAN’S CASTLE – THRONE ROOM

We see OBSIDIAN, SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers in the throne room. OBSIDIAN is furious about the failure of the latest invasion.

OBSIDIAN
(angry)
THIS IS INCONCIEVABLE!!! MY PLAN WAS PERFECT!!!! WHERE DID IT GO WRONG???!!!

SKY-BYTE
There wasn’t any flaw in your plan, Lord Obsidian. You just didn’t know that the Autobots would interfere. It was a simple, but reasonable oversight.

OBSIDIAN
Ahhh, so those Autobots are the ones who foiled my plans!!! Admittedly, even though I’ve never faced them before, one of them in particular looks hauntingly familiar, but I can’t quite put my finger on who he is.

RUNABOUT
(excited)
How ‘bout we scrap ‘em and find out later!!!

RUNAMUCK
(excited)
Yeah, yeah, let’s murderize the bums!!!!

SKY-BYTE
(to OBSIDIAN)
Please forgive my associates. Even though they excel in speed and firepower, they are sorely lacking in brains and patience. But anyways, which Autobot worries you???

OBSIDIAN
The red and blue Autobot with the number 38 on his hood.

SKY-BYTE
That is Smokescreen, the Diversionary Tactician of the Autobots. He used to work at a casino as a singer and then became a law enforcement agent.

OBSIDIAN
Ahhh, now I remember. That is the young lad who forced me to abandon Cybertron after I tried to take over Iacon. Oh, how I’ve longed for the day in which I would capture him and tear out his spark!!!

SKY-BYTE
Well, it seems like this would be the perfect time to capture him and his partners.

OBSIDIAN
That it is. But first, we must strategize accordingly...

FADE IN TO

THE FOREST – ENTRANCE TO THE HIDEOUT

We see some guards standing in the entrance to the hideout. We then see AIRAZOR and the Autobots heading towards the General.

GENERAL
(welcoming AIRAZOR with relief)
Lady Airazor!!! Thank the stars you were not captured!!!

AIRAZOR
(warmly)
Thanks for your concern, General. I happened to come across these five great warriors engaging an entire army of Truck Drones.
(introducing the Autobots)
Let me introduce you to Smokescreen, Wheeljack, Minerva, Daytonus and Breakaway.
(concerned)
But please, tell me how the soldiers are doing.

GENERAL
(with a sad tone)
They’re in really bad shape. We lost too many soldiers in our last battle and all the survivors are too weak to fight.

AIRAZOR
(with a sad tone)
I see.

The GENERAL then leads AIRAZOR and the Autobots inside. The Autobots are shocked to see a small number of soldiers lying on the ground, groaning and moaning in pain. AIRAZOR approaches a soldier and takes care of him.

AIRAZOR
(to the Autobots, while taking care of the soldiers)
These soldiers were not trained for battle. They’re villagers trying to defend their freedom. Their villages were all destroyed by Obsidian’s truck drones.

MINERVA
(shocked)
That’s just terrible!!!

WHEELJACK then approaches AIRAZOR and starts talking to her.

WHEELJACK
(with a soft tone)
You really take good care of these guys.

AIRAZOR
It’s my duty to protect my soldiers, no matter what it takes. I will take down Obsidian and give these people the freedom they deserve, even if it costs me my life.

WHEELJACK
You are a very noble and brave woman.

AIRAZOR stands up and she looks at WHEELJACK. They both look at each other nervously.

AIRAZOR
(somewhat nervous, to WHEELJACK)
C’mon, let’s go outside.

WHEELJACK follows AIRAZOR outside and they head towards a hill. They stand on top of the hill. The sun is setting on the horizon. While looking the sunset, they start chatting.

AIRAZOR
(to WHEELJACK)
So, what do you do??? What is your specialty???

WHEELJACK
Well, I’m a mechanical engineer. I build gadgets and weapons for our fight against the Decepticons. However, not all of them work perfectly and some of them tend to blow up in my face, unfortunately.

AIRAZOR
(laughing warmly)
Heheheheheheheh, that’s really amusing.

WHEELJACK
(starting to laugh himself)
Yeah, heh, I guess it is.

Then, WHEELJACK also starts laughing. After they stop laughing, WHEELJACK asks AIRAZOR something.

WHEELJACK
Have you ever been in love with someone???

AIRAZOR
No. I’ve fought with a lot of great warriors and developed a lot of friendships, but I’ve never felt attracted to anybody. And I don’t know if I can love anyone and lead at the same time.

WHEELJACK
Do you believe in love at first sight???

There’s a brief pause. AIRAZOR seems somewhat nervous, but she then replies.

AIRAZOR
(nervously)
Yes. I’ve just experienced it.

WHEELJACK
(warmly)
Me too. When I first saw that person, I wanted to tell her that I want to have her by my side for the rest of my life. A brave, warm, caring lady whose beauty you wouldn’t believe.

AIRAZOR
(romantically)
And I wanted to tell him that even though I don’t know him very well, I still want to be with him. He makes me feel… very comfortable, safe and secure. He’s very special, and I really want to know more about him.

AIRAZOR slowly turns towards WHEELJACK and touches his face. She removes WHEELJACK’S battle mask and behind it, we see a kind, gentle face with some battle scars. This is the first time we see WHEELJACK without his mask. AIRAZOR then kisses WHEELJACK slowly yet passionately. Then, we see them kissing and hugging from afar.

FADE IN TO

OBSIDIAN’S PALACE – THRONE ROOM

We see OBSIDIAN addressing SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers.

OBSIDIAN
You three must patrol the forest in order to find these Autobots. Bring me the most important member of their team, the one that brings hope and inspiration to them.

RUNABOUT
(excited)
Yo, tha’s easy!!!!

RUNAMUCK
(excited)
Yeah, tha’s the little nurse gal!!!

SKY-BYTE
(to OBSIDIAN)
We’ll bring her to you the moment we find her.

OBSIDIAN
(proud)
Excellent. Now go and hunt down that girl!!! I need her in order to lure Smokescreen into my trap.

SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers then transform into their alternate modes and head off into the forest in order to search for MINERVA.

FADE IN

THE HILL – SUNSET

We see WHEELJACK and AIRAZOR kissing atop the hill. Then, the kiss is released and they both look at each other and smile warmly. As he talks, we see while WHEELJACK speaks, that his ears don’t blink when he doesn’t have his battle mask on.

WHEELJACK
(softly)
That was so pleasant. Oh Airazor, I wish I could stay with you forever.

AIRAZOR
(with a hopeful tone)
As do I… I wonder if I could ever be a member of your team, just so we can be together.

WHEELJACK
(hopeful)
You know, if we hold on to our dreams, they just might come true.

Then, AIRAZOR and WHEELJACK head back to the hideout. Inside, we see MINERVA using a stethoscope on DAYTONUS. DAYTONUS is telling MINERVA where to put it.

DAYTONUS
(while MINERVA is checking him with a stethoscope)
Could you move it up a little bit???!!!
(MINERVA moves the stethoscope up)
A little over to da left!!!
(MINERVA moves the stethoscope to the left)
Eyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

MINERVA smiles playfully while DAYTONUS turns around. DAYTONUS opens his mouth and sticks his tongue out so MINERVA can check his tonsils.

DAYTONUS
(opening his mouth, same delivery as the “Eyyyyyyyyy”)
Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!

MINERVA looks at DAYTONUS’ tonsils.

MINERVA
Well Daytonus, it seems like everything’s A-OK with ya.

DAYTONUS
(with a charming attitude)
Whoa, thanks sexy dudette, that’s a relief.

DAYTONUS’ remark causes MINERVA to blush and giggle.

MINERVA
(blushing and giggling)
Oh, you’re such a charmer!!!

DAYTONUS
Ey, every lady needs ta be admired. Besides, I love ta hear ya giggle.

MINERVA
(blushing and giggling)
Oh, you!!!

Suddenly, the two teenage Autobots see two Eukarian kids running happily through the forest.

MINERVA
(smiling)
Golly, look at them. They’re so cute!!!

DAYTONUS
(smiling, to MINERVA)
Yeah. Y’know, lemme ask ya sumthin’. Stuff like this makes ya wonder, y’know. Y’think the Fonz-Tonus could be a good father???

MINERVA
(honestly)
Yeah. Yeah, why not??? I think he’d be a great father.

DAYTONUS
(smiling)
Yeah. Just imagine if I had kids.

MINERVA
(smiling)
What if he had a daughter???

DAYTONUS
Oh, I’d love a little daughter. Pretty little girl, I’d call her Jennifer.
(realizing something)
That’s it!!! Jennifer!!!! What’s in a name!!!???

We see that DAYTONUS takes a notepad and writes down the name Jennifer. It seems that he has found the name of his next date.

MINERVA
(returning to the subject)
But, I mean having a daughter, Daytonus, that’s different.

DAYTONUS
Well, wha’s da difference???

MINERVA
Okay, if ya had a daughter, would you let her go out with somebody like you???

DAYTONUS
‘Course not!!! There is nobody like me!!! Eyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!

MINERVA
(smiling)
Well, that’s true!!!
(changing the subject)
Anyways, I want to explore this place a little bit. If Smokescreen asks for me, tell him that I’ll be back soon.

DAYTONUS
Okay, dudette. But don’t take too long, y’know that everyone starts worryin’ a lot when you’re gone.

MINERVA
(smiling)
Oh, don’t worry. It won’t take long.

MINERVA then heads towards the forest. She walks through the forest and she finds some exotic flowers.

MINERVA
(impressed by the beauty of the flowers)
Golly!!! These flowers are just so beautiful!!!

She’s about to pick some flowers, but then, a pair of feet step on the flowers in front of her. MINERVA looks up and is shocked and terrified to see RUNABOUT looking down at her.

RUNABOUT
(smiling)
Hello, cutie PAH!!!!

MINERVA then tries to draw her shock blaster, but to her shock, her holster is empty. Then, we see RUNAMUCK coming in from behind, holding MINERVA’S shock blaster.

RUNAMUCK
(smiling, holding MINERVA’s shock blaster)
Lookin’ for this????

MINERVA is totally terrified. Without her shock blaster to stun them, there’s no escape from the two maniacs. The Battlechargers start laughing at her. However, MINERVA tackles RUNAMUCK and desperately tries to run from the Battlechargers.

RUNAMUCK
(falling to the ground)
OWWWWWWW!!!!!

RUNABOUT then helps RUNAMUCK back up.

RUNABOUT
(helping RUNAMUCK)
C’mon, mac!!! She’s gettin’ away!!!!

Then, we see MINERVA running through the forest. The Battlechargers are following her closely. RUNABOUT draws his high-energy particle beam rifle and fires it. The blast just barely misses MINERVA. The Battlechargers keep hunting MINERVA down like angry dogs sniffing out their prey!!! RUNAMUCK then draws his friction rifle and fires it. MINERVA crouches and dodges it just in time. RUNABOUT fires his rifle again and this time the blast hits MINERVA’S shoulder.

MINERVA
(getting hit)
YAAAAAIIIIIGGGGHHHH!!!!!!

Wounded, MINERVA manages to run to safety. She hides behind some bushes. She seems to be trying to patch up her wound. She tries to do this swiftly, because she knows that the Battlechargers will find her sooner or later. However, she doesn’t seem to notice a menacing figure standing on a tree branch. The figure jumps right in front of MINERVA. It’s SKY-BYTE!!! MINERVA is now completely terrified and desperate.

MINERVA
(just when SKY-BYTE jumps in front of her)
AAAAAAAIIIIIGGHHH!!!! NOOO!!!!! GET AWAY FROM ME!!!!!

SKY-BYTE swiftly draws his sword and swings it in a threatening manner. MINERVA tries to evade all of SKY-BYTE’S deadly strikes. However, she gets blasted from behind by RUNAMUCK, who is now using MINERVA’S own shock blaster.

MINERVA
(in pain, getting hit by her own shock blaster)
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Then, the Battlechargers grab MINERVA and take her away. SKY-BYTE swiftly follows them.

FADE IN TO

THE HIDEOUT – OUTER CAVE

We see BREAKAWAY building some defensive battle suits for the Eukarian rebels to use. We see that so far, he has only managed to finish two models. Then, SMOKESCREEN comes in alongside AIRAZOR’S GENERAL

SMOKESCREEN
(to BREAKAWAY)
Ace job, Breakaway.

BREAKAWAY
(with a cool attitude)
Well, having a Master’s Degree in Electronic Engineering really paid off.

GENERAL
(surprised, to BREAKAWAY)
You’re a graduate???!!!

BREAKAWAY
(with a cool attitude)
Yup. Right from the Nova Cronum University.

SMOKESCREEN
(to the GENERAL)
Breakaway is just so fascinated with electronics. Back when Optimus Prime was still alive, he actually requested a leave of absence to complete his Degree.

GENERAL
Ah, I see.

BREAKAWAY
(keeping his cool)
Yeah, but when I came back, I noticed that things had changed a lot ever since I left. It was pretty easy to adapt myself to these changes, but wow, everything just happened so quickly.

SMOKESCREEN
(warmly)
We understand, kid.

AIRAZOR and WHEELJACK soon arrive.

WHEELJACK
(amazed)
Boy, oh boy. Breakaway, you really are astonishing.

AIRAZOR
(looking at the defensive battle armor models)
These models seem to have incredible offensive and defensive capabilities.

BREAKAWAY
Exactly, Lady Airazor. With these, we can defeat Obsidian once and for all.

Suddenly, DAYTONUS comes in.

SMOKESCREEN
(to DAYTONUS)
Where’s Minerva????

DAYTONUS
Oh, she went to explore da forest. She’ll be back soon.

Suddenly, the hideout’s computer picks up a transmission. We then see OBSIDIAN’s face on the monitor.

OBSIDIAN
(with a smug tone)
Greetings, rebels.

AIRAZOR
(with anger)
Obsidian!!!

OBSIDIAN
Ahhh, Lady Airazor. So nice to see you again.

SMOKESCREEN
(with shock, recognizing OBSIDIAN)
You!!!!

OBSIDIAN
Why, hello officer. It’s been a long time!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(angrily)
I knew I should have blasted you into oblivion when I had the chance.

OBSIDIAN
Oh, officer. You still have your impulsive attitude.
(with a threatening tone)
Let me come to the point.

We then see MINERVA on the monitor, cuffed against a raised operating table and hooked up to a strange device. We hear her screaming and groaning in pain. We also see that the device is generating small Energon cubes. The Autobots are extremely shocked after seeing MINERVA’S situation.

OBSIDIAN
(continued)
Your little friend is trapped in my dungeon. As you can see, we’re slowly draining the Energon from her in order to make Energon cubes. If you Autobots and Rebels do not surrender to me, I’ll be forced to drain all of her energy. Remember, time is essential to the girl’s survival.

The transmission ends. We see that SMOKESCREEN is totally frustrated by this recent turn of events.

SMOKESCREEN
(frustrated)
I told Arcee that I’m not good at leading!!! Who does she think I am??? Optimus Prime???

DAYTONUS
(calming SMOKESCREEN down)
Ey, ey, c’mon!!! It wasn’t your fault. This kinda thing can happen to anybody. We just have ta plan a strategy.

AIRAZOR
(comforting SMOKESCREEN)
Don’t worry, Smokescreen. We’ll get her back. I promise.

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN TO

OBSIDIAN’S CASTLE – DUNGEON

We see OBSIDIAN approaching MINERVA, still strapped onto the Energon siphoning machine. The siphon machine keeps draining her energy slowly in order to create more Energon cubes. MINERVA is still moaning in pain from this. OBSIDIAN then addresses her with a mocking tone.

OBSIDIAN
(taunting MINERVA)
Your friends are now in a bad situation. They will have to surrender to me if they ever want to see you again.

MINERVA
(struggling)
ACK!!! Do whatever you want with me, but leave my friends alone!!!

OBSIDIAN
(with a smug tone)
Oh, my dear girl. You don’t understand. One of your friends exiled me from Cybertron a long time ago, and since then, I’ve longed for the day where I would destroy him. I’ll kill him, even if he surrenders.

MINERVA immediately figures out who the Autobot that exiled OBSIDIAN is.

MINERVA
(desperate, with pain)
No!!! UGH!!!! Please!!! Spare Smokescreen!!! He may be a little stubborn and impulsive, but he doesn’t deserve this!!!

OBSIDIAN
(with a smug tone, putting his hand on MINERVA’S chin)
Now I see why Sky-Byte said you were the most important member of your team. You’re such a compassionate girl, and you don’t know how much I love plucking the feathers from the wings of an angel of mercy, and there’s no better way to torture you than slowly draining your Energon while you watch your friends get terminated along with all the innocent villagers who defied my commands.

MINERVA
(in pain, with more desperation)
AGH!!! You’re a beast!!! How can you do this to all these innocent people???!!!!

OBSIDIAN
(with a mocking tone)
Why, I didn’t rise to power by letting villages thrive, no… I did it by annihilating them!!!!
(with a smooth tone)
Now I must leave you, my dear. You still have to generate more Energon cubes for my troopers. How ironic that my Truck Drones will be powered by your Energon when they destroy your friends.

OBSIDIAN then walks out of the Dungeon while MINERVA hopelessly struggles against the siphon machine.

FADE IN TO

QUINTESSA – TORTURE CHAMBER

We see a QUINTESSON coming into the chamber. We see RODIMUS, still cuffed to the wall. However, we see that his traumatic experience has changed him. He looks completely angry, but deep down, he’s totally terrified. He has never felt so helpless in his whole life. The QUINTESSON then addresses him.

QUNTESSON #2
(showing the face of laughter)
Well, it looks like we finally managed to crack the all-powerful Autobot leader.

RODIMUS then looks at the QUINTESSON with rage.

RODIMUS
(furious)
You have messed with us for far too long. When I break free, I’ll grab you and your buddies and turn you all into jelly!!!

QUINTESSON #2
(showing the face of doubt)
Exactly the reaction we were hoping for. However, while your killer instinct has taken over your mind, I know you feel afraid deep down. You can’t handle it, it’s driving you insane!!!

RODIMUS
(with extreme rage)
C’mon!!!! Let’s see if you can fight as much as you talk!!!! I’ll tear ya apart!!!!

QUINTESSON #2
(showing the face of rage)
Silence!!!! Your outburst doesn’t threaten me!!! I’ll deal with you later. I have to report to my master.

RODIMUS
(while the QUINTESSON heads to the door, totally furious)
COME BACK, YA COWARD!!!!!!!

The QUINTESSON then goes back to report to JHIAXUS. We now see that RODIMUS’ anger has turned into despair. He now talks while looking up at the ceiling.

RODIMUS
(ashamed, looking up and talking with a weak tone)
Optimus… I failed!!!! I tried to be the leader you were, but I couldn’t even save myself!!! Forgive me!!!

RODIMUS closes his eyes and he suddenly tries to communicate with one of his Autobots through the Creation Matrix. He luckily manages to communicate with MINERVA, who is in an equally terrible predicament.

RODIMUS
(weakly)
Minerva…

MINERVA
(struggling, recognizing the voice)
Ahhhh!!!! What the---???!!! Rodimus???!!!

RODIMUS
(weakly)
I… need help!!!

MINERVA
(struggling)
Where… AGH… are you???!!! Where’s Nightbeat???!!!

RODIMUS
(weakly)
Quintessa… a horrible place… I’m sorry… Nightbeat got dismantled…

MINERVA
(with shock)
No!!!!

RODIMUS
(weakly)
I can’t take this any longer… save us, Minerva... we need you…

MINERVA
(struggling, with a hopeful yet sad tone)
Don’t worry, Rodimus. We’ll rescue ya!!!

RODIMUS
(weakly)
Tell Arcee… that I love her… Uhhhhhh…

RODIMUS then falls unconscious. MINERVA then figures out that if RODIMUS and NIGHTBEAT are to be rescued, she has to survive this deadly challenge.

MINERVA
(struggling)
Golly!!! I must fight… the pain…!!! AHH!!!! Rodimus is counting on me!!! ARGH!!! I have to be strong… I won’t let him down… this time…!!!!

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

THE HIDEOUT – OUTER CAVE

We see the remaining Autobots and the Rebels are all planning a surprise attack on the castle. However, there are only two giant defensive battle suits finished and BREAKAWAY has no time to finish the next one.

AIRAZOR
There’s no time to keep working on the battle suits. We’ll have to use the two finished models. I think Breakaway should use one of them. After all, he built them.

BREAKAWAY
(with a cool attitude, getting inside one of the battle suits)
Well, then it’s time to test my baby!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(to DAYTONUS)
I think you should get into the other suit.

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude)
Eyyyyyy, anything ta bring my dudette back!!!

DAYTONUS then gets inside the second battle suit and then, the GENERAL comes in with AIRAZOR’S troops.

GENERAL
We’re ready for battle, Lady Airazor.

AIRAZOR
(to the GENERAL)
Excellent. Now remember that you have to take out the Truck Drones guarding the castle without being noticed. You’ll take them down one-by-one.
(to WHEELJACK)
Wheeljack, you’re with me.

WHEELJACK
What’re we gonna do???

AIRAZOR
We’ll sneak into the castle while Smokescreen and my boys take down the Truck Drones.

WHEELJACK and AIRAZOR transform to vehicle mode and head for the castle. Meanwhile, DAYTONUS is really enjoying piloting his battle suit.

DAYTONUS
Yo, Breakaway!!! This suit is superb-a-mundo!!!!

BREAKAWAY
(smiling)
Glad you like my suits, Daytonus. Everything’s working perfectly so far.

FADE IN TO

THE CASTLE – EXTERIOR

We see many TRUCK DRONES guarding the castle from the outside.

TRUCK DRONE #1
(with awkward delivery)
I DON’T BELIEVE THIS!!! My barber was giving me a big herkah!!! And suddenly, end up here!!! These rebels, you’ll pay for this!!!! Or my name… ISN’T… T.D.!!!

TRUCK DRONE #2
(with stiff delivery)
Hahaha, what a story, Truck Drone.

Suddenly, the two TRUCK DRONES are jumped from behind by two rebel troopers. The rebel troopers rip the TRUCK DRONES apart and attach some of their pieces onto their bodies in order to fool the other TRUCK DRONES. Suddenly, a TRUCK DRONE greets the two disguised rebels.

TRUCK DRONE #3
(greeting the disguised rebels)
Oh HAI, Truck Drone!!!
(getting clobbered by the rebels)
AAARGH, WHY, TRUCK DRONE, WHY, WHY?????!!!!!

The rebels then throw the recently dispatched TRUCK DRONE into the bushes. Then, we see that the bushes move, and then, another rebel comes out, wearing the pieces of the greeting TRUCK DRONE. Then, we see SMOKESCREEN and the GENERAL coming out of some bushes.

SMOKESCREEN
(smiling, whispering to the GENERAL)
Boy, Airazor is definitely my type of strategist. Ripping these bozos apart is just as fun as beating up Vehicons.

GENERAL
(whispering to SMOKESCREEN)
Now, we gotta find our Truck Drones.

Then, we see two TRUCK DRONES coming into view. SMOKESCREEN and the GENERAL grab them and then, after a brief struggle, our two heroes come out disguised as TRUCK DRONES.

SMOKESCREEN
(smirking)
Boy, seems like Halloween came early this year.

GENERAL
Now, we have to head for the castle!!!

We see SMOKESCREEN, the GENERAL and the troopers, all of them in disguise, swiftly heading toward the castle. They wait for the moment in which AIRAZOR and WHEELJACK manage to sneak into the castle in order to strike.

FADE IN

OBSIDIAN’S CASTLE – THE WATCHTOWER

We see WHEELJACK and AIRAZOR sneaking into the castle’s watchtower. A TRUCK DRONE is on the tower, but WHEELJACK dispatches him with ease. AIRAZOR then communicates with her GENERAL.

AIRAZOR
General, we’re almost there. When Daytonus and Breakaway arrive, start engaging all enemy units.

GENERAL
(through intercom)
Roger that, Lady Airazor.

Then, WHEELJACK shoots a grappling hook towards the roof of the castle.

WHEELJACK
Okay, let’s go!!!

WHEELJACK and AIRAZOR then slide against the grappling hook’s line and manage to land on the roof. Meanwhile, we see OBSIDIAN looking at some of his battle plans. However, an alarm rings and OBSIDIAN goes to check out what’s wrong.

OBSIDIAN
(being interrupted by the alarm)
What’s this???

OBSIDIAN then checks the monitor. The monitor shows a map of the castle and we see a red dot on the roof. OBSIDIAN then heads towards an intercom.

OBSIDIAN
(with an authoritative tone, to the intercom)
Sky-Byte!!! Someone’s on the roof!!!!

We see WHEELJACK and AIRAZOR on the roof.

AIRAZOR
(smiling, to WHEELJACK)
Ace job, Wheeljack. I can see why your friends appreciate you so much.

WHEELJACK
(smiling)
Yeah, well, they really think I’m special, but I dunno about that.

AIRAZOR
(with a soothing tone)
Well, you’re special to me.

WHEELJACK then blushes at AIRAZOR’S remark.

WHEELJACK
(blushing)
HOMINAHOMINAHOMINAHOMINA!!!!
(shaking his head and nervously trying to get back to business)
Wait, where do we go from here??? I mean… not personally… I mean… the mission… I mean… well… you know what I mean!!!

AIRAZOR
(smiling)
We head inside and we’ll split. I’ll take on Obsidian, you go and find Minerva.

Suddenly, AIRAZOR and WHEELJACK react with shock when they hear a voice addressing them in a menacing tone. They turn around, and they see SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers standing in a threatening manner in front of the entrance.

SKY-BYTE
(with a threatening tone)
You’ll have to get past us first!!!!

AIRAZOR
(smirking, drawing her sword)
Now that’s my idea of fun!!!

AIRAZOR draws her sword and charges towards the three renegade Decepticons. RUNAMUCK fires his friction rifle, but she evades the blast. However, the blast hits WHEELJACK’S shoulder.

WHEELJACK
(getting hit by the blast)
YAAAAAGGGHHHHH!!!!

AIRAZOR looks at WHEELJACK with concern and then turns back to RUNAMUCK and charges angrily towards the white Battlecharger.

AIRAZOR
(angrily charging towards RUNAMUCK)
Stinking punk!!!!

RUNAMUCK fires another friction blast at AIRAZOR, but he misses. AIRAZOR then slices RUNAMUCK’S friction rifle and shoves the Battlecharger aside.

AIRAZOR
(slicing RUNAMUCK’S friction rifle)
HI-YAAAAAAAH!!!!

RUNAMUCK
(getting shoved aside by AIRAZOR)
WHOOOAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

However, SKY-BYTE swiftly draws his sword and strikes AIRAZOR. She has a small cut on her shoulder, but she keeps on fighting.

SKY-BYTE
(with a threatening tone)
So, you’d match steel with me, you pathetic excuse for a rebel leader???!!!

AIRAZOR and SKY-BYTE clash swords violently. Meanwhile, we see RUNABOUT aiming his blaster towards WHEELJACK.

RUNABOUT
(to WHEELJACK, with a threatening tone)
Start backin’ up, blinkin’ ears!!!!

WHEELJACK has no choice but to back up near the edge of the roof. AIRAZOR and SKY-BYTE keep clashing violently. We hear both opponents grunting while clashing swords. SKY-BYTE overpowers the rebel leader and is also leading her towards the edge.

SKY-BYTE
(to WHEELJACK and AIRAZOR, with a threatening tone)
A few more steps and you’ll both finally be out of my fin!!!

Suddenly, we hear a voice addressing SKY-BYTE with a defiant tone.

DAYTONUS
(off-screen, defiantly)
Better watch your own step, shark-breath!!!

We then see two giant battle suits heading for the castle, DAYTONUS and BREAKAWAY are manning them, and they are followed by all the rebel troopers disguised as TRUCK DRONES. SKY-BYTE reacts with shock at this recent turn of events.

SKY-BYTE
(shocked)
It’s… it’s… the Autobots!!!

RUNAMUCK
(impressed)
MAH, how they’ve grown!!!!

RUNABOUT and SKY-BYTE are desperately trying to blast the two Autobots in their giant battle suits while RUNAMUCK is trying to use some masking tape to put his friction rifle back together.

BREAKAWAY
Daytonus, you help out Wheeljack and Airazor. I’ll go and help the other rebels with the remaining Truck Drones.

DAYTONUS
Sounds mundo-awesome, dude!!!

Battle suit DAYTONUS then crawls onto the roof of the castle and starts threatening the renegade Decepticons.

DAYTONUS
(with a threatening tone, to the renegade Decepticons)
Leave my friends alone, ya little creepazoids!!!

RUNABOUT desperately tries to blast battle suit DAYTONUS. Then, DAYTONUS grabs the three Decepticons and puts them on top of a giant array. Meanwhile, AIRAZOR and WHEELJACK move into the castle. Then, they arrive at the main hall.

AIRAZOR
Okay, here’s where we split.

AIRAZOR then turns towards WHEELJACK, takes off his mask and kisses him.

AIRAZOR
(with a romantic tone)
Good luck!!!

WHEELJACK
(with warmth)
Good luck to us all.

Then, AIRAZOR runs towards the throne room while WHEELJACK runs towards the dungeons. AIRAZOR stops for a moment and looks at her shoulder wound. She’s in pain, but then, she ignores it and keeps advancing to the throne room. Meanwhile, we see SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers still hanging on top of the array. RUNAMUCK is shaking violently due to his fear of heights.

RUNAMUCK
(terrified, to SKY-BYTE and RUNABOUT)
Oh, scrap!!!! AH hate heights!!!!!

RUNABOUT
(hanging onto the array)
Whoa, how do we get down from here???!!!

RUNAMUCK
(terrified)
AH think we fall!!!!

Suddenly, the array falls apart and the three Decepticons comically fall down and land on the ground.

SKY-BYTE, RUNABOUT, RUNAMUCK
(falling down)
WHOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!

When they land, they instantly get up and run to the entrance. Meanwhile, WHEELJACK charges towards two TRUCK DRONES guarding the dungeon, and he throws them out of a window. The TRUCK DRONES fall into the river surrounding the castle. WHEELJACK then enters the dungeon and finds MINERVA strapped onto the siphon machine.

MINERVA
(struggling)
Wheeljack!!! ARRRGH!!!! Help me!!!!

WHEELJACK then sees some cables connected to MINERVA’S abdomen. He finds out that these are the cables that are draining her energy. He disconnects them and then unstraps MINERVA from the operating table.

MINERVA
(being released)
AAAAAGH!!!!

WHEELJACK then holds MINERVA in his arms.

WHEELJACK
(trying to get MINERVA to stay awake)
C’mon, kid!!! Don’t die on me yet!!!

MINERVA
(with a weak tone)
Wheeljack…

WHEELJACK
(encouraging MINERVA)
I’m right here with ya kid!!!

MINERVA
(struggling)
Rodimus… in… Quintessa… Nightbeat… dismantled… help…

WHEELJACK is somewhat baffled by what MINERVA is saying.

WHEELJACK
(confused, to MINERVA)
Wait, WHA???!!! How do you know this???!!!!

MINERVA
(struggling)
Rodimus… used… Matrix… contacted… me…

WHEELJACK
(realizing what MINERVA means)
The Matrix!!!
(thinking)
Of course!!! Rodimus must have figured out how to communicate with us through the Matrix!!! What a miracle…
(holding MINERVA in his arms)
Don’t worry, kid. I’ll take you to safety!!!

Then, WHEELJACK and MINERVA are both startled by a familiar voice addressing them with a threatening tone. Then, we see SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers standing in front of WHEELJACK and MINERVA, blocking their only way out!!!

SKY-BYTE
(with a menacing tone)
You’ll find that won’t be so easy, Autobots. Now you’re finished!!!

Suddenly, a giant hand rips out one of the dungeon walls. It’s BREAKAWAY in his battle suit.

BREAKAWAY
(with a defiant tone)
Dream on, Sky-Byte!!!!!

Then, battle suit BREAKAWAY pushes SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers away with his hand.

SKY-BYTE, RUNABOUT, RUNAMUCK
(in unison, being pushed)
OOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!

BREAKAWAY then grabs the two Autobots and puts them in a safe place. Meanwhile, we see SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers getting up.

SKY-BYTE
(desperate, to the Battlechargers)
We’re overwhelmed!!! We must retreat!!! Quickly, to the portal room!!!!

Then, SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers head for the portal room. SKY-BYTE then opens a portal to Earth and the Battlechargers both jump inside. SKY-BYTE follows them but he stops and turns back for a moment.

SKY-BYTE
(furiously, raising his fist)
Another time, Autobots!!!!

SKY-BYTE then jumps into the portal right before it closes. Then, we fade in to the entrance to the throne room. We see AIRAZOR blasting the door apart and inside, she finds that OBSIDIAN has been waiting for her.

OBSIDIAN
(with a smug tone)
Ah, Lady Airazor. I’ve been waiting for you.

And then, to AIRAZOR’S shock, two doors on each side of the room open, and three TRUCK DRONES come out of each door. AIRAZOR is now completely outnumbered. Six against one.

AIRAZOR
(defiantly)
Even if it means my life, I’ll bring an end to your reign of terror!!!!!

The six TRUCK DRONES surround AIRAZOR while OBSIDIAN watches.

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

OBSIDIAN’S CASTLE – THRONE ROOM

We see AIRAZOR being surrounded by the six TRUCK DRONES.

OBSIDIAN
(with anger, to AIRAZOR)
You have defied me for the last time!!!
(authoritatively, to the TRUCK DRONES)
FINISH HER!!!!

TRUCK DRONE #1
(to AIRAZOR)
GOOD-BA-HA-HA-YE!!!!!!!!

AIRAZOR then kicks the first TRUCK DRONE’S head off. However, the second TRUCK DRONE stabs her in the abdomen.

AIRAZOR
(getting stabbed in the abdomen)
AAAAGGGGHHH!!!!

AIRAZOR then pulls the second TRUCK DRONE’S knife out of her abdomen and slices the TRUCK DRONE’S throat. The third TRUCK DRONE blasts her in the right leg. AIRAZOR limply runs toward the third DRONE, draws her sword and decapitates him.

TRUCK DRONE #3
(with stiff delivery, being decapitated)
I’m losing my mind on this game!!!

Then, the remaining TRUCK DRONES come in and charge towards AIRAZOR. She takes a grenade from a storage container and throws it at the DRONES. The TRUCK DRONES are then destroyed by the explosion.

TRUCK DRONES #4, 5 and 6
(in unison, being destroyed)
You’re TEHRING me apart, Lady!!!!

Then, OBSIDIAN draws a sword and charges violently towards AIRAZOR. He slashes her in the chest with his sword. She now has a cut across her chest, and we see that she’s bleeding oil through her wound. However, AIRAZOR doesn’t give up so easily and clashes blades with OBSIDIAN. We hear the two rivals grunting while violently swinging and clashing swords. OBSIDIAN seems to be overpowering AIRAZOR, but suddenly, she kicks him and slices his left arm off.

OBSIDIAN
(in pain)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!
(enraged)
You wretched piece of scrap!!! YOU DARE TO STRIKE OBSIDIAN????!!!!

AIRAZOR
(with determination)
Your reign of terror is over, you cold-blooded beast!!!

OBSIDIAN angrily charges towards AIRAZOR, but she kicks him and sends him flying off, his body scraping against the floor. Then, she heads outside, limping due to all the damage she received in the fight. However, just when she gets out, we see OBSIDIAN’S right hand moving. Then, we fade in to the battle outside. We see the rebels taking down all of OBSIDIAN’S TRUCK DRONES. The TRUCK DRONES still don’t seem to notice that the disguised rebels are not TRUCK DRONES. We see a TRUCK DRONE trying to blast DAYTONUS (who is still inside the battle suit).

TRUCK DRONE #2
(with stiff delivery, angrily trying to blast battle suit DAYTONUS)
Get out!!! GET OUT!!! GET OUT OF MY LIFE!!!!

Suddenly, SMOKESCREEN (disguised as a TRUCK DRONE) comes in and slices the TRUCK DRONE’S arm off. The TRUCK DRONE feels betrayed.

TRUCK DRONE #2
(with awkward delivery, after getting his arm sliced off)
Everybody betray me, I fed up with DIS world!!!!

Then, we see the GENERAL beating a TRUCK DRONE to the ground. Meanwhile, WHEELJACK is taking care of MINERVA. He’s giving her some Energon cubes so she can recover.

MINERVA
(exhausted)
Gee whiz, I don’t feel so good.

WHEELJACK
(with a warm tone)
They drained too much Energon from ya. I’m surprised you managed to survive for this long.

Suddenly, we hear the sounds of cheering and celebrating. We see that the rebels have won the battle. The remaining TRUCK DRONES have retreated. We see DAYTONUS and BREAKAWAY coming out of the battle suits and they hug each other merrily as the rebels celebrate. Then, MINERVA and WHEELJACK see the celebration and seem happy about the victory, but WHEELJACK is pretty concerned about AIRAZOR. Suddenly, we see her standing in the castle doorway, limping towards her troopers.

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

OBSIDIAN’S CASTLE – EXTERIOR

We see AIRAZOR limping towards her allies who are all happy and relieved to see that she’s alive. However, on the roof, we see a wounded OBSIDIAN, looking outright furious. He’s holding a spear in his right hand.

OBSIDIAN
(with rage)
I SHALL NOT BE DENIED!!!!!

OBSIDIAN throws the spear at AIRAZOR. The spear hits AIRAZOR in the chest and it pierces right through her spark. We see AIRAZOR has an expression of shock on her face when she’s struck. WHEELJACK is also shocked by this.

WHEELJACK
(desperate, looking at AIRAZOR)
NO!!!!!!!

WHEELJACK runs to AIRAZOR’S aid. We see BREAKAWAY firing his sniper rifle at OBSIDIAN. The cruel tyrant is struck by three deadly blasts fired by the formidable sniper. We see that he has an expression of pain on his face as he falls down into the river surrounding his castle. Then, we see WHEELJACK holding AIRAZOR in his arms while the rebels and the Autobots are coming in, with a sad expression on each of their faces.

WHEELJACK
(suffering, holding AIRAZOR)
Please, Airazor. Don’t leave me!!!
(desperate, to DAYTONUS)
C’mon, there’s gotta be something we can do!!!

DAYTONUS
(with a sad tone)
Sorry, dude. She’s too far gone. The spear went right through her spark.

AIRAZOR wakes up. WHEELJACK looks at her with a sad expression. AIRAZOR knows that this is the end for her.

AIRAZOR
(struggling)
Wheeljack...

AIRAZOR takes off WHEELJACK’S mask.

AIRAZOR
(with a warm but ailing tone, to WHEELJACK)
I’m afraid this is it, my love. I never thought it would all end so suddenly.

WHEELJACK
(with a sad tone)
Please, don’t say that. We can fix you.

AIRAZOR
(ailing, trying to comfort WHEELJACK)
Sorry, Wheeljack. But my spark is fading, and no one can fix that. It would have been great to be a part of your team, but fate seems to have played its hand against us. I really hope we may meet again in the AllSpark.
(to her GENERAL)
General, you have always been loyal to me. You will be the guardian of Eukaris. Promise me that you will protect the planet from everyone who wishes to bring harm to it.

GENERAL
(with a sad tone)
It shall be done, Lady Airazor.

AIRAZOR
(with an ailing tone, to the GENERAL)
Thanks, General.
(to WHEELJACK)
Now, I only have one thing left to do.

AIRAZOR then gives WHEELJACK a tender kiss.

AIRAZOR
(ailing)
Take good care of yourself, my love. And never abandon your family. They love you.

AIRAZOR quietly passes away. WHEELJACK starts crying. The GENERAL and the rebels salute their fallen leader. We see that SMOKESCREEN is now comforting WHEELJACK.

SMOKESCREEN
(putting his hand on WHEELJACK’S shoulder, comforting him)
I’m so sorry, Jackie. I know how much she meant to ya.

Meanwhile, we see that MINERVA is crying while DAYTONUS and BREAKAWAY comfort her.

DAYTONUS
(comforting MINERVA)
There, there, dudette. Don’t cry, it really pains me ta see you like this.

MINERVA
(crying)
She was so noble, so brave… I wish I was like her.

BREAKAWAY
(comforting MINERVA)
We’ll always remember her as she was. Daring, kind and warm. A great role model to everyone around her.

Then, SMOKESCREEN approaches the GENERAL.

GENERAL
(with a sad tone)
She was a great leader. I don’t know if I’ll ever be the leader she was.

SMOKESCREEN
(with a warm tone)
Trust me; our leader said the same thing when Optimus Prime died and he really has done an excellent job ever since then. I know you’ll be a great leader to all of your people.

GENERAL
(grateful)
Thanks, Smokescreen. Your words really inspire me to go on.

Then, the GENERAL heads towards WHEELJACK and comforts him.

GENERAL
(to WHEELJACK)
Listen, ordinarily we would bury our people here in Eukaris, but I think you should take Lady Airazor with you. She would have preferred to be with the ‘bot she loved in life.

WHEELJACK looks at the GENERAL. He has an expression of gratitude in his face.

WHEELJACK
(sad yet thankful)
Thanks, General. I really wanted to take her with me to Earth, but I never thought it would be like this.

The GENERAL then takes the Autobots inside the castle. WHEELJACK carries AIRAZOR’S body in his arms. They arrive at the portal room. The GENERAL activates a portal to Earth.

GENERAL
(to the Autobots)
Good journey, my friends.

SMOKESCREEN
Good journey, General.

Then, the Autobots walk into the portal.

FADE IN TO

THE DESERT – AIRAZOR’S GRAVE

We see that WHEELJACK is outside the base. He’s standing in front of AIRAZOR’S grave. He then starts talking.

WHEELJACK
(softly)
Good journey, Airazor. I love you, and I’ll always be with ya.

Then, WHEELJACK heads back into the base.

NOTES

This episode was written during “Mother’s Day” week and is dedicated to all the mothers in the world.

ACT ONE

FADE IN

SPACE – FLYING SAUCER

We see a Cybertronian flying saucer heading towards the Earth. It lands in the Oregon desert. We see a shadowy figure coming out of the saucer. The figure seems to be pretty short in stature and we see that it’s looking at something. It’s a picture of STARSCREAM when he was a little hatchling, wearing diapers and with a pacifier in his mouth. The figure then walks through the desert.

FADE IN TO

AUTOBOT BASE – GARAGE

We see SMOKESCREEN and SIREN playing poker in the garage while REV is repairing a vehicle. SMOKESCREEN then puts his cards down on the table and we see that he has four aces and a king. SIREN notices the king and stops SMOKESCREEN before he can pick up his winnings.

SIREN
(getting angry, to SMOKESCREEN)
Yo!!! AH just played dat card!!! How in the oily blue blazes did ya git it???!!!! Luck or cheatin’???

SMOKESCREEN then gets up angrily and grabs SIREN by the shoulders.

SMOKESCREEN
(angrily)
You callin’ me a cheater, loudmouth????!!!!

SIREN then pushes SMOKESCREEN and he violently tosses the table aside.

SIREN
(angry, throwing the table to the ground)
You are a cheater!!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(angry)
Why, you---????!!!!!

SMOKESCREEN and SIREN then start fighting. SMOKESCREEN punches SIREN and sends him flying on top of REV. REV gets up and angrily grabs SIREN by the shoulders.

REV
(angry)
Hey, watch it ya maniacs!!!! Who are ya shovin’????!!!!

REV then punches SIREN and sends him flying off. SMOKESCREEN then comes in and grabs REV.

SMOKESCREEN
(angry, holding REV)
Look, Rev!!! Nobody punches my buddy except me!!!!

However, before SMOKESCREEN can get a chance to punch REV, a hand grabs him by the arm. Then, we see DAYTONUS looking at SMOKESCREEN defiantly.

DAYTONUS
(with a defiant tone)
CUT IT OUT!!!! All of ya!!!
(with disgust, to the three Autobots)
Look at ‘cha!!! Rodimus would be totally displeased wit’ yer attitude!!!! No wonder Arcee has been so depressed lately. Your bickering and fighting is making her life miserable!!!!
(aggressively)
Now, cool it or I’ll make your lives miserable.
(looking at the three Autobots, with disgust)
Whoooooaaaa!!!

DAYTONUS then gets out of the garage. SMOKESCREEN, SIREN and REV are totally terrified of him. They know that he could back up what he said about making their lives miserable. We see that ARCEE is outside. DAYTONUS approaches her and starts talking to her.

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude)
Well, I stopped them.

ARCEE
(with a somewhat sad tone)
Thanks.

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude)
Ey, relax ‘Cee. At least we now know where Roddy is and we can plan a rescue mission.

ARCEE
(sad)
I guess so, but I still can’t help but feel bad about so many things.

DAYTONUS
Like what???

ARCEE then looks at MINERVA’S room. DAYTONUS looks at MINERVA’S room as well and immediately realizes one of the things troubling ARCEE.

DAYTONUS
Oh…

ARCEE
(sad)
She’s been crying for days. She just feels like everything is falling apart. The sheer thought of Nightbeat being dismantled shrouds her with guilt. I tried to help her, but I don’t know if I’m really helping her at all. That combined with Wheeljack’s depression due to losing Airazor, Siren and Smokescreen constantly bickering and fighting…

ARCEE then breaks up and starts crying. DAYTONUS hugs her, comforting her.

DAYTONUS
(comforting ARCEE)
Ey, ey!!! Don’t cry, pink gal. You’ve been a great leader so far. If Roddy saw ya today, he would be pretty proud of ya.

ARCEE
(calming down)
Thanks, Daytonus. I really appreciate your kindness.

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude)
Yeah, just go to your room and relax for a while, it’ll cool your stress.

ARCEE then hugs DAYTONUS and heads for her room. DAYTONUS goes to take a stasis nap outside. He lies down on the ground and tries to sleep. However, we hear the sounds of owls, crickets, birds, squirrels, raccoons and frogs while he’s trying to relax. After a brief moment, DAYTONUS then briefly gets up, looks around and gives an order.

DAYTONUS
(with an authoritative tone, to all animals)
COOL IT!!!!

After the order, all of the animals stop making noises. DAYTONUS looks around and lies down.

DAYTONUS
(lying down)
Let’s see Tarzan do dat!!!!

DAYTONUS then rests peacefully. Meanwhile, we see BREAKAWAY watching G-WIZ news. We see LAURA WINSLOW on the screen.

LAURA
This is Laura Winslow of G-WIZ news, reporting live from the first international conference on nuclear weapons.

However, we see that the live report gets interrupted and we now see STARSCREAM on the screen. We see that KNOCK OUT is buffing STARSCREAM’S helmet. STARSCREAM pushes KNOCK OUT aside.

STARSCREAM
(pushing KNOCK OUT aside)
Get away, you idiot!!!! We’re on the air!!!!
(addressing the public)
People of Earth!!! This is Starscream!!!! If you do not surrender to me, you’ll face destruction at the hands of my nuclear disintegrator!!!! I will be at the United World Plaza at noon tomorrow to present the terms of your surrender!!!

BREAKAWAY
(with a cool attitude)
This is so not cool.
(to the intercom)
Attention all Autobots. We’ve got ourselves a situation.

FADE IN TO

THE UNITED WORLD PLAZA – AT NOON

We see STARSCREAM, KNOCK OUT, QUAKE and a Vehicon CAR DRONE walking out of a portal. We see the World Leaders coming out of the United World building and we also see LAURA recording the meeting between the Leaders and STARSCREAM.

STARSCREAM
(smirking)
Now to bring the people of Earth to their knees!!!
(to the World Leaders)
I’m glad you’re on time!!! Here are my demands!!! First, all of the world governments will surrender to me!!! Second…

WORLD LEADER
(with a defiant tone)
We have met, and we have decided not to give in to your demands, Starscream!!!

While the WORLD LEADER speaks, we see the mysterious figure approaching the plaza.

STARSCREAM
(upset, to the WORLD LEADER)
YOU WHAT????!!!!!

Suddenly, we hear a raspy voice with a thick Bronx accent off-screen. This raspy voice is slightly lower than that of STARSCREAM.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(off-screen, with joy)
Sonny boy, it’s you!!!!

STARSCREAM
(embarrassed, looking at his MAMA)
Mama????!!!!! Wh-wh-what the---????!!!!!

We finally get a glimpse of MAMA STARSCREAM. She’s slightly shorter than her son, but she looks almost exactly like him except for the fact that she has white hair around her helmet. She then comes in and hugs her son.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(with joy, hugging STARSCREAM)
Surprise, surprise!!! I came in my lil’ ol’ flyin’ saucer all the way from the ol’ Nova Cronum neighborhood to shake hands with my son who tells me he’s the big shot commander of a great security force.

KNOCK OUT
(with a sarcastic tone)
Awwwwww, ain’t that sweet????

QUAKE
(with a cute tone, thinking KNOCK OUT is serious)
Yeah, maybe I oughta visit my madre more frequently!!!

KNOCK OUT reacts to QUAKE’S remark with a facepalm.

KNOCK OUT
(to himself)
Gee, doesn’t he know the meaning of the word sarcasm????!!!

We see that the CAR DRONE is biting his fist in order to contain his laughter. STARSCREAM then addresses the World Leaders with rage.

STARSCREAM
(angry, to the World Leaders)
You will all pay for this insolence!!!! You hear me??? EARTH WILL PAY!!!!!!!

Then, MAMA STARSCREAM grabs STARSCREAM by the side of his helmet.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(with joy, grabbing the side of STARSCREAM’S helmet)
C’mon, sonny!!! Let’s blow this joint!!!

STARSCREAM
(trying to get out of his MAMA’S grasp)
Mama, wait!!!!! Ya can’t--- YOOOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!!

The Decepticons then head back to the portal. Meanwhile, we see that all the available Autobots (ARCEE, STRONGARM, SMOKESCREEN, DAYTONUS, REV, SIREN and BREAKAWAY) have arrived at the scene and they transform to robot mode. LAURA goes to greet them.

LAURA
(to the Autobots)
Hi, guys. You just missed ol’ Screamin’ jerk. He left through a portal and get this…!!!! He had his mother with him!!!

There is a brief moment of silence, and then, the Autobots burst into laughter.

ARCEE, DAYTONUS, MINERVA, ET AL
(laughing)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

REV
(laughing)
Boy, I really hope you recorded that footage, ‘cause I would really love to see that jerk’s reaction!!!

DAYTONUS
(laughing)
Yeah, it would be mundo-hilarious!!!!!

LAURA
(smiling and winking)
I’ll send a copy to each of ya.

STRONGARM
(laughing)
Golly, I can’t wait to see that!!!

ARCEE
(catching her breath)
Still, we’ll have to see whether or not Screamer was bluffing about the nuclear disintegrator.
(to STRONGARM)
Would you like to come with me and pay the ‘cons a little visit???

STRONGARM
(smiling)
I thought you’d never ask.

FADE IN TO

THE DESERT – THE DECEPTICON SHIP

We see ARCEE and STRONGARM sneaking into the Decepticon ship. They keep advancing, but then, STARSCREAM walks through the corridor and spots them.

ARCEE
(frustrated)
SCRAP!!!!

STARSCREAM
(scared)
AAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! Autobots!!!!!

STRONGARM
Whoopsie!!!

Then, QUAKE and THUNDERHOOF come in to assist STARSCREAM.

STARSCREAM
(with an authoritative tone)
DESTROY THEM!!!!!

ARCEE and STRONGARM are shocked by this latest development.

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

THE DECEPTICON SHIP – THE CORRIDOR

We see THUNDERHOOF, STARSCREAM and QUAKE glaring menacingly at ARCEE and STRONGARM.

STARSCREAM
(with an authoritative tone)
DESTROY THEM!!!!!

However, before they can attack, we see a purse hitting STARSCREAM in the face.

STARSCREAM
(being hit by the purse)
OWWWWWWW!!!!

Then, we see that the purse belongs to MAMA STARSCREAM. She’s been watching everything and she seems pretty displeased by everything she’s seen. THUNDERHOOF then looks at MAMA STARSCREAM and then asks STARSCREAM a question.

THUNDERHOOF
(to STARSCREAM)
EY-YO!!!! Who’s this dame????!!!!!!

STARSCREAM
(embarrassed)
My… mother…

MAMA STARSCREAM
(displeased, to STARSCREAM)
How many times must I tell ya that it’s not polite to treat yer guests like dat????

STARSCREAM
(to his MAMA)
But Mama, those are our most despised enemies!!!!

MAMA STARSCREAM
(displeased, to STARSCREAM)
You’re just like yer pop!!! Impulsive and paranoid!!!! You’re grounded!!! Go to yer room and don’t come back ‘til ya clean up yer act, ya stupid bum!!!!

STARSCREAM
(crying like a little baby, heading to his room)
BWAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! WHY DOES SHE ALWAYS TREAT ME LIKE THAT!!!!! BWAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Then, MAMA STARSCREAM looks at THUNDERHOOF.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(to THUNDERHOOF, with disgust)
You get yer ugly mug outta here. I dunno why my son hangs out with filth like you.

THUNDERHOOF
(crying like a baby, running off)
BWAAAAAAAAA!!!!! JUST BECAUSE MY JOB IS FILTHY DOESN’T MEAN I AM!!!!! BWAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Then, MAMA STARSCREAM looks at QUAKE. He’s about to run off crying, but is stopped by MAMA STARSCREAM.

QUAKE
(starting to run off)
BWAAAAAA---!!!

MAMA STARSCREAM
(stopping QUAKE)
Hold it right there, ya bum!!!! You’re gonna help me wit’ the guests.
(to ARCEE and STRONGARM)
I’m really sorry for my son’s behavior. He inherited that from his pop.

ARCEE and STRONGARM look at each other totally baffled and surprised. Then, we fade into a scene in the Decepticon ship’s dining room. We see QUAKE serving some soup to ARCEE and STRONGARM that MAMA STARSCREAM made. Then, MAMA STARSCREAM comes in and sits at the table.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(with a friendly tone, to the two Autobots)
So, how’s the soup????

STRONGARM
It’s delicious!!!!

ARCEE
Yeah, you are really good at cooking.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(smiling)
Thank you. You girls are so nice. I dunno why Sonny doesn’t like either of ya.

ARCEE
(smiling nervously)
Well, let’s just say that we’re not exactly on the same side.

STRONGARM
Yeah. You see, we’re Autobots. We are protecting the Earth from the Decepticons, which are now being led by your son.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(upset)
I knew he wus lyin’ about bein’ the big shot commander of a great security force!!!! A no-good lyin’ bum, just like his pop!!!!

STRONGARM
Well, he wouldn’t be leading if that black hole hadn’t sucked the previous ‘con leader and his brutish lackey.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(even more upset)
Like papa, like son. The opportunist bum!!!
(notices that ARCEE is looking kinda sad, with concern)
Say, what’s wrong???? You look sad.

ARCEE
(holding back her emotions)
It’s just that I…

ARCEE then breaks up into tears.

STRONGARM
(with a soft tone, to ARCEE)
You want me to tell her???

ARCEE nods and STRONGARM tells the story to MAMA STARSCREAM.

STRONGARM
(to MAMA STARSCREAM)
That black hole also sucked in our leader Rodimus and his second-in-command Nightbeat, and Arcee has been forced to take over. Arcee loves Rodimus, and she misses him dearly. Our friend Minerva is also suffering a lot, too. She managed to make contact with Rodimus, and found out that Nightbeat had been dismantled by their captors.

MAMA STARSCREAM is listening to the story carefully. She has a warm expression on her face and as she listens to the story, she understands why ARCEE has been having trouble.

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

THE DECEPTICON SHIP – DINING ROOM

We see MAMA STARSCREAM still listening to STRONGARM’S story.

STRONGARM
(still telling MAMA STARSCREAM the story)
The fact that our leader is not with us has started to take a toll on all of us. Now, there is a lot more tension, which causes some of our more temperamental members to start bickering and fighting. Arcee just doesn’t think that she can handle all of this for much longer.

MAMA STARSCREAM stands up and walks towards ARCEE. She hugs and comforts her.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(with a warm tone)
There, there, my child. You really have earned yer position, and you should be proud of that. If only my son was more like you, he wouldn’t be such an annoying bum.

ARCEE
(crying)
But I don’t know how much longer I can take this. I can’t stop Smokescreen and Siren from fighting without Daytonus’ help, I’m trying to help Minerva overcome her sadness and yet I don’t think I’m helping her at all, and Wheeljack won’t come out of his lab due to his loss. I’m just so… useless!!!!

MAMA STARSCREAM
(with a warm tone)
Nonsense, young lady. From what yer young friend told me, I think you’ve done a terrific job trying to be a good role model. Ya see, a real leader is someone who questions themselves constantly, thinking they’re inferior to previous leaders. But if you ask the people that surround that leader, they will always say that they’re proud of having them as a leader.

ARCEE
(emotional)
Really???

MAMA STARSCREAM
(cheerful)
Absolutely. And no matter how tough the situation is, I know you’ll handle it better than you think you can.

ARCEE
(feeling better)
Gee, thanks Mama Starscream.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(warmly)
Oh, please. It’s the least I could do.
(with a sad tone)
I just wish I had done that with Sonny. Y’see, I always told him to go to school, but he always ran out to see his pop in action. Papa Starscream was a great fighter and a pretty handsome fella, but his inflated ego and his arrogance caused his demise. Sonny inherited all the flaws his pop had, and some of my flaws as well. He never told me “Mama, I love ya.”

ARCEE
But nobody’s perfect, Mama Starscream. Yes, your son may be a stupid bum, but deep down, he’s still your son, and I know that he must still love you a lot despite the fact that he can’t admit it.

MAMA STARSCREAM
I really hope you’re right, young lady.

STRONGARM
(remembering something)
Holy scrap, we almost forgot!!!! Your son has a nuclear disintegrator that he’s threatened the world with.

MAMA STARSCREAM
Oh, you mean that giant thing in the briefin’ room??? That was Papa Screamer’s disintegrator. Sonny knows that piece of junk hasn’t worked for years. He was bluffin’ ya all this time.

STRONGARM
I suspected as much.
(to MAMA STARSCREAM)
Well, we must be going. Thanks for your hospitality, Mama Screamer.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(smiling, to STRONGARM)
My pleasure, young girl.
(to ARCEE)
Oh, and remember what I told ya. True leaders always question themselves, but the people around them know that despite that fact, they will always make the right decisions.

ARCEE
(smiling, to MAMA STARSCREAM)
I won’t forget it. Thanks for everything, Mama Starscream.

ARCEE and STRONGARM leave the ship. After they have left we see STARSCREAM coming into the dining room. He seems calmer than we’ve seen him so far.

STARSCREAM
(with a soft tone)
Mama, can I talk to ya????

MAMA STARSCREAM
(smiling)
Yeah, Sonny. C’mon in!!!!

STARSCREAM then sits in front of his MAMA. He then thinks that the time has come to say something important.

STARSCREAM
(ashamed)
Look, Mama. I lied to ya. I’m not the big shot commander of a security force. I’m just the boss of an evil team. I know you always told me that I shouldn’t be like my pop, but I couldn’t help it, I was always so amazed by how great and awesome pop looked while fighting all those jet fighters. I just couldn’t help it!!! All the kids at school bullied me, and all I wanted was to be just like pop so I could teach ‘em a lesson. I know that I’m on the wrong side of freedom and justice, but I’m proud of it, ‘cause I feel that’s where I really belong. I know you never wanted that, but I can’t turn back now. However, I always wanted to tell ya something.

We see that STARSCREAM has started to cry quietly. MAMA STARSCREAM is somewhat surprised by this. She has never seen her son cry in such a quiet manner before.

STARSCREAM
(crying, to his MAMA)
I love you, Mama. You may not have succeeded in making me what you wanted me to be, but I really love ya for trying. You’re the only person in the universe who cares about me. Nobody likes me, and yet, you always worry about me lot. I’m so sorry for being what I am, but that’s the only thing I’m good at. However, despite that fact, I’ll always love ya no matter what.

STARSCREAM then breaks up even more. MAMA STARSCREAM looks at her son. She’s smiling with warmth.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(with a warm tone)
Awwwwww, Sonny. I never thought you would say that. I thought you were just like yer pop, but now, I see that you’re better than him. You told me the truth and that’s what matters. I love you a lot, Sonny, and you really made me proud of ya today. I may not like what you do, but if you feel like this is what you want to do for the rest of yer life, then I can’t stop ya.

We see STARSCREAM looking at his MAMA, tears rolling down his cheeks. He smiles warmly and then, he hugs her. We then fade in to a scene in which STARSCREAM and his MAMA are bidding each other farewell.

STARSCREAM
(warmly)
Goodbye, Mama.

MAMA STARSCREAM
(with warmth)
Goodbye, Sonny. Don’t forget to write.

MAMA STARSCREAM then gets inside her saucer and it takes off. STARSCREAM waves goodbye to his MAMA.

STARSCREAM
(with a soft tone, looking at the saucer)
I love ya.

ACT ONE

FADE IN

PORTLAND – POWER STATION

We see a power station from the outside. Then, we hear a familiar voice speaking authoritatively and then we cut to the inside and see that it’s SKY-BYTE giving orders to the Battlechargers while they’re installing a gadget into a generator.

SKY-BYTE
(authoritatively, to the Battlechargers)
Hurry up, you fools!!! Both the Autobots and Starscream have been up to our every move!!!

RUNABOUT
(finishing up with the installation)
There, it’s done!!!

SKY-BYTE
That energy transmitter will beam all the power in this station straight to our Energon converter. Let’s move it!!!!

SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers run toward the door. However, ARCEE kicks the door and stands in front of them, blocking their only exit. MINERVA, STRONGARM and DAYTONUS are right behind her.

ARCEE
(with a defiant tone)
You were sayin’ something about Autobots, Sky-Byte???

RUNABOUT
(surprised)
AH don’t believe it!!! They found us again!!!!

RUNABOUT then draws his high-energy particle beam rifle and shoots. The Autobots evade RUNABOUT’S shots.

STRONGARM
(defiantly, replying to RUNABOUT)
With ol’ smelly fish being your boss and your stinking fumes, it wasn’t hard to track you down!!!!
(throwing a sword at RUNABOUT)
YAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!

The sword hits RUNABOUT’S rifle, which causes it to explode.

SKY-BYTE
(to the Battlechargers)
RUN!!!!!!

SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers start running toward another room.

ARCEE
(to the Autobots)
Follow ‘em!!!!!

RUNAMUCK blasts one of the walls in the room with his friction rifle and the three renegade Decepticons escape through the hole. The Autobots enter the room and DAYTONUS points toward the hole.

DAYTONUS
(pointing towards the hole)
That-a-way, fellow dudettes!!!

ARCEE
(with determination)
Those creeps aren’t gonna get away from us this time!!! C’mon!!!!!

The Autobots then go through the hole and there’s no trace of the renegade Decepticons. However, MINERVA notices that the door of one of the two powerhouses behind the station is open.

MINERVA
(pointing towards the powerhouse)
They must have gone in there!!!

The Autobots then run inside the open powerhouse.

STRONGARM
(defiantly)
Give it up, shark-breath!!!! You can’t hide from us!!!
Suddenly, we hear SKY-BYTE’S voice coming from under the floor and then, we see him holding onto a giant rotating gear and coming up towards the Autobots.

SKY-BYTE
(with a menacing tone, coming up from the floor)
On the contrary, I’m right under your noses!!!!

SKY-BYTE jumps from the gear and prepares to engage MINERVA. However, unlike the last time, MINERVA is prepared for him. She draws two Sais and starts clashing with the towering Decepticon. Then, we see the Battlechargers standing on top of a rotating gear in horizontal position, and while the gear rotates, they fire at STRONGARM and DAYTONUS. The two Autobots fire back at them while running for cover. Meanwhile, MINERVA keeps clashing with SKY-BYTE. Then, SKY-BYTE grabs a rope that propels him up and then jumps from it and lands right in front of ARCEE. ARCEE then clashes with SKY-BYTE.

ARCEE
(with authority)
It’s the end for you, Sky-Byte!!!
(swinging her sword at SKY-BYTE)
We’ve finally got you cornered!!!
(clashes her sword with that of SKY-BYTE, making him drop it)
Now, we’re gonna put you away!!!!

RUNABOUT
(jumping from the rotating gear along with RUNAMUCK)
Don’t be so sure about that!!!!

RUNABOUT then fires an arrow tied to a rope from his wrist. The rope gets tied into ARCEE’S left wrist and the arrow hits a rotating gear. ARCEE tries to use her sword to free herself, but RUNAMUCK fires his friction rifle and it hits ARCEE in the hand, making her drop her sword. She is about to be crushed by a gear connected to the one in which she’s nailed down!!! However, MINERVA comes in just in the nick of time and throws one of her Sais at the rope. ARCEE is free.

SKY-BYTE
(to the Battlechargers)
Move it, you two!!!

SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers then run toward the door. Meanwhile, the Autobots are helping out ARCEE.

ARCEE
(thankful)
Thanks, guys!!!

DAYTONUS
(noticing SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers leaving)
There they go.

The Autobots then pursue the three Decepticons. SKY-BYTE then takes a grenade from his storage container and throws it at the Autobots.

STRONGARM
We got ‘em now!!!!
(the grenade lands in front of the Autobots)
Or maybe not!!!!!

STRONGARM, MINERVA, DAYTONUS, ARCEE
(running, in unison)
LOOK OUT!!!!

The grenade explodes and gears fly off around the powerhouse.

ARCEE
C’mon, they’re gettin’ away!!!!

The Autobots then go through the door and they see that SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers are leaving at top speed in a giant tank.

ARCEE
(frustrated)
Not again!!!!

MINERVA
(upset)
We’ll get ya, Sky-Byte, if it’s the last thing we do!!!!!

FADE IN TO

THE AUTOBOT BASE – BRIEFING ROOM

We see STRONGARM in the briefing room, totally frustrated about the outcome of the last attack. We also see that SPIKE WITWICKY’S wife CARLY is with her.

STRONGARM
(upset)
I can’t believe those guys gave us the slip again. This is frustrating!!!!

CARLY
(with a motherly tone)
Don’t worry, Strongarm. You’ll catch them. However, I don’t know why you’re so intent on capturing them.

ARCEE
(coming out of her room)
Because they’re the only ones who could help us rescue Rodimus and Nightbeat.

CARLY
Oh, I see.

Suddenly, we see DAYTONUS and MINERVA desperately bursting out of the repair bay. DAYTONUS runs towards TELETRAAN-I and punches it.

MINERVA
(bursting out of her repair bay)
OHGOLLYOHGOLLYOHGOLLYOHGOLLYOHGOLLY!!!!!!

ARCEE and CARLY look at the two teenage Autobots with concern.

CARLY
(concerned)
What’s wrong, kids???

DAYTONUS
(pointing towards the monitor)
WHOA!!!!!!!!

We then see that the monitor shows a ship heading in a collision course towards Earth. CARLY and ARCEE look with shock.

CARLY
(shocked)
What on Earth is it????

MINERVA
Well, technically it’s not really on Earth yet.

ARCEE
(desperately)
No, but it’s about to be!!!! C’mon!!!!

The four Autobots transform to vehicle mode and head towards the ship’s location. The ship crash-lands in the desert. The Autobots then arrive at the scene and inspect the shuttle. STRONGARM finds the hatch and tries to open it. However, the hatch pops out with such force that is sent flying off.

STRONGARM
(trying to open the hatch)
Okay, now to try and—
(the hatch flies off)
YOW!!!!!!!!!

Then, a strange creature comes out of the ship. He towers over every Autobot present. He’s almost the same size as Rodimus. We also see that he has a strange helmet that looks like the head section of a motorcycle. He also has red eyes and a goatee. Suddenly, we hear a strange voice with some static coming out of the being.

WRECK-GAR
(with static, to the Autobots)
BAH-WEEP-GRAGNAH-WEEP-NI-NI-BONG!!!!!

STRONGARM, thinking the alien is trying to call for reinforcements, aims her blaster at him. However, she’s swiftly stopped by ARCEE.

ARCEE
(stopping STRONGARM)
Hold it, Strongarm.

STRONGARM
But he’s trying to call for reinforcements.

ARCEE
No, that’s the universal greeting. Rodimus and I have used it lots of times.
(to WRECK-GAR)
BAH-WEEP-GRAGNAH-WEEP-NI-NI-BONG!!!!! Welcome to Earth.

WRECK-GAR
(with static, introducing himself)
Wreck-Gar’s the name, junk collection is the game!!!!

We then see that MINERVA is looking at the ship’s thrusters and notices that they were blasted from a long distance.

MINERVA
Golly, this ship didn’t crash-land randomly. It was hit by a long range beam!!!!

WRECK-GAR
(to MINERVA, imitating CURLY HOWARD)
I was a victim of SOYCUMSTANCE, NYUKNYUKNYUK!!!!

ARCEE
I don’t get it. Who could have enough resources to fire a long range beam from here???

DAYTONUS
(to ARCEE)
Sky-Byte and da Battlechargers????!!!!

STRONGARM
But why would they want to fire at an innocent junk collecting ship.

ARCEE
I get the feeling that this was a test run.

STRONGARM
Then we have no time to waste!!! We got to find them and stop them, before they even get a chance to use it for real!!!!

ARCEE
(to WRECK-GAR)
Would you like to join us????

WRECK-GAR
(with excitement, imitating a typical rocker)
Yeah, man!!!! Bring it!!!!!

ARCEE
(smiling)
Great!!! We could use the extra help.
(to WRECK-GAR and the Autobots)
Okay guys, transform and roll out!!!

The Autobots and WRECK-GAR then transform into vehicle mode and roll toward their destination. WRECK-GAR’S alt-mode is a futuristic motorcycle, which looks somewhat rusty and banged.

WRECK-GAR
(imitating the bumper announcer)
The Transformers: Regeneration One will return after these messages!!!

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN

THE DESERT – AN ABANDONED BUNKER

We see SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers loading some Energon cubes inside their tank. These cubes were generated by their Energon converter. SKY-BYTE then addresses the Battlechargers.

SKY-BYTE
(authoritatively)
Hurry it up!!! The Autobots will track us down sooner or later, so we need to load our entire Energon stockpile as well as our new laser cannon!!!

SKY-BYTE then helps the Battlechargers load the cannon and then, they continue loading the last batch of cubes. Meanwhile, we see the Autobots and WRECK-GAR driving through the desert. Suddenly, we hear the sound of a familiar jet engine coming in.

DAYTONUS
Yo, Breakaway!!!

BREAKAWAY
Yo, guys!!! I detected some high energy readings coming from this part of the desert.

ARCEE
(to all the Autobots)
Okay, ‘bots. Time to transform and sneak.

All the Autobots transform into robot mode along with WRECK-GAR.

ARCEE
Breakaway, you stay here with Wreck-Gar just in case we need assistance.

BREAKAWAY
(with a cool attitude)
Okey dokey!!!

ARCEE
(to the other Autobots)
Okay, time to sneak up on them.

ARCEE, MINERVA, STRONGARM and DAYTONUS then tiptoe toward the energy source. Then they take cover behind a rock formation. They see SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers closing the tank’s cargo container.

RUNABOUT
Everythin’s in place, boss!!!

SKY-BYTE
Excellent, then let us find a new base of operations.

Suddenly, STRONGARM accidentally trips and falls on top of MINERVA.

STRONGARM, MINERVA
(in unison)
YOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!!!!!

SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers hear the sound and RUNABOUT immediately notices the two young girls on the ground.

RUNABOUT
Yo, look!!! It’s those two Autobrats!!!

ARCEE
(frustrated, whispering behind the rock formation)
SCRAP!!!!!

Then, DAYTONUS comes out of the rock formation and starts shooting at the renegade Decepticons.

DAYTONUS
(with a cool attitude, opening fire)
Whoa!!!!!

SKY-BYTE
(authoritatively)
Neutralize him!!!

DAYTONUS
(defiantly)
Eyyyyyyyyy, nobody neutralizes the Fonz-Tonus without my permission!!!!

Suddenly, ARCEE also comes out of the rock formation, firing her rifle with fury.

ARCEE
(intensely, to the Decepticons)
EAT LEAD, YOU BUMS!!!!

SKY-BYTE
(with a commanding tone)
Battlechargers, follow me!!!!

SKY-BYTE then leads the Battlechargers into an abandoned temple. Inside the temple, we see that there’s a big pond. The Autobots follow the Decepticons inside. However, we see the Battlechargers running around some catwalks inside the temple and throwing grenades at the Autobots.

STRONGARM
(shocked)
They got us boxed in!!!!

SKY-BYTE
(yelling authoritatively)
RUNAMUCK!!!! TURN UP THE HEAT!!!!

RUNAMUCK then fires a flamethrower while we hear him cackling maniacally.

RUNAMUCK
(laughing maniacally)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

RUNABOUT
(taunting the Autobots)
Heheh, nuthin’ like a cheering blaze to warm a Battlecharger’s heart!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

DAYTONUS
(to his fellow Autobots)
Things are gettin’ a little bit warm, dudettes!!!!

MINERVA
Looks like it’s time for a little swim!!!

The Autobots then jump into the pond. SKY-BYTE now has an idea.

SKY-BYTE
(with a maniacal tone, to the Battlechargers)
That water is much too chilly for our friends, gentlemen!!! Heat it up…
(continued, with total insanity)
…TO THE BOILING POINT!!!!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

While SKY-BYTE laughs maniacally, the Battlechargers aim their flamethrowers at the pond and fire them.

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

THE DESERT – ABANDONED TEMPLE

We see the Battlechargers firing at the pond with the flamethrowers while SKY-BYTE keeps laughing maniacally.

SKY-BYTE
(maniacally)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! My special recipe for Autobot soup!!!!

SKY-BYTE, RUNABOUT, RUNAMUCK
(in unison)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

SKY-BYTE
(maniacally)
Keep heating it up!!! We want to make sure our Autogooses are properly cooked!!!!

SKY-BYTE, RUNABOUT, RUNAMUCK
(in unison)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

Suddenly, their moment of joy gets interrupted when they hear somebody coming in. SKY-BYTE seems to recognize the intruder.

SKY-BYTE
(shocked)
DRIFT???!!!!!

However, we then see that it’s just WRECK-GAR wearing some of DRIFT’S spare parts. We then see BREAKAWAY coming in, wearing a 70’s afro. Suddenly, BREAKAWAY puts down a device that he’s carrying. He then presses a button and a disco beat starts playing and WRECK-GAR starts dancing and singing.

WRECK-GAR
(singing, with an Asian accent)
I've survived a volcano onslaught
I was swallowed by a great white shark
Hitched a ride on a tornado's tail
Out ran an avalanche in the dark.
I'm the Kong Fu master so mean and tough.
I'm so bad I scare myself. Hah!
HI-YOOOOOOOH YAH!!!!!
HI-YOOOOOOOH WOOH!!!!!
HAH!!!!!!
HAH!!!!!
HIYA!!!! HAH!!!! HI!!!! HOH!!!!!
I've been taught by Ape-fucious who says
The mind must be sharp as a wisdom tooth
I can cut down a tree with bare hands
I've been trained in Ape-jitsu kung fu!

RUNABOUT, RUNAMUCK
(singing, in high-pitched falsetto voices)
He's so mean
He's so tough
He's so bad he scares himself!!!!

WRECK-GAR
(singing)
I'm the Kong Fu master so mean and tough
I'm so bad I scare myself
I'm the Kong Fu master so mean and tough
I'm so bad I scare myself
Hah!!!

WRECK-GAR finishes the song by making a strange samurai sound. SKY-BYTE looks at him with a raised eyebrow.

WRECK-GAR
(with a goofy, nasally voice)
Watch out behind pond number 2!!!

SKY-BYTE
(confused by the remark)
Huh???!!!!

When SKY-BYTE realizes what WRECK-GAR’S remark means, the Autobots jump out of the pond and then proceed to jump the baffled shark. MINERVA then fires her Shock Blaster at the Battlechargers, stunning them before they can escape.

STRONGARM
(to BREAKAWAY and WRECK-GAR)
What took ya guys so long???!!!!

BREAKAWAY
Wreck-Gar told me he had a plan and he put this afro on me and he took some of Drift’s spare parts from Minerva’s repair bay and asked me to build this music player in the way.

DAYTONUS
(proud, to WRECK-GAR and BREAKAWAY)
Lemme tell ya sumthin’, you’ve outdone yourselves. You handled these guys like bosses!!!!

ARCEE
Indeed, Daytonus.
(to WRECK-GAR)
You’re a pretty handy guy to have around, Wreck-Gar. Would you like to join us in our battle against the Decepticons????

WRECK-GAR
(imitating HUMPHREY BOGART)
I’d do anythin’ for ya, kid!!!
(imitating MR. T)
AH PITY DA FOO WHO MESSES WIT’US!!!!!
(imitating ET)
Wreck-Gar found friends!!!!!
(imitating a TV announcer)
Operators standing by!!!!

MINERVA
(excited)
Great!!!! We’re gonna have tons of fun with this guy!!!!

ARCEE
(smiling)
Totally. Okay, ‘bots. Let’s take these troublemakers back to our base.

The Autobots then stash SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers in their own tank and BREAKAWAY ties a rope into the tank so the Autobots can tow it.

ARCEE
(with an inspirational tone)
Transform and roll out!!!!

The Autobots transform and head for home. BREAKAWAY ties the rope onto WRECK-GAR’S rear and the Junkion warrior takes the tank back to the base. Then, BREAKAWAY transforms and follows them. Suddenly, the screen turns black and then, we see an ending title card like those in old Warner Brothers cartoon shorts. WRECK-GAR tears the title car apart and addresses us.

WRECK-GAR
(to us, imitating PORKY PIG)
Th-th-th-th-that’s all folks!!!!

ACT ONE

FADE IN

AUTOBOT BASE – BRIEFING ROOM

We see SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers unconscious within a cage. They start waking up and they see that the Autobots are right in front of them.

RUNABOUT
(frustrated)
Awww, scrap!!!!

RUNAMUCK
(frustrated)
AH can’t believe they got us!!!

SKY-BYTE
(defiantly, to the Autobots)
What do you want from us???!!!

ARCEE
We need your help.

RUNABOUT, RUNAMUCK
(shocked, in unison)
WHAAAAAA-???!!!!!

SKY-BYTE
(dubious)
And why should we help you???!!!! What’s in it for us???!!!!

ARCEE
First things first. We want you to assist us in rescuing our missing comrades. We have already tracked down the location of planet Quintessa, thanks to Wheeljack’s lifeforce tracker. All we need is the half you took of Tarantulas’ blueprint back in New Orleans. Also, while I don’t like doing this, if you help us, we’ll let you take Shockwave and Tankor if we find them.

SKY-BYTE then strokes his chin and after thinking it over for a bit, he finally comes to a decision.

SKY-BYTE
Very well, I accept the offer.

Then, we hear a deceitful, high-pitched voice coming out of nowhere and we suddenly see STARSCREAM appearing from thin air. He had his cloaking device activated. We see the other Decepticons coming through the entrance.

STARSCREAM
(with a deceitful tone, turning off his cloaking device)
Oh, I don’t think so!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
(while the other Decepticons enter)
You see, we Decepticons also want to help. You don’t need to worry. We just want to get Shockwave and Tankor back, not these renegade bums. I want to keep Shockwave’s head as a trophy while Tankor’s brutish strength could be of use to me.

While STARSCREAM keeps babbling, KNOCK OUT approaches SKY-BYTE and whispers to him.

KNOCK OUT
(to SKY-BYTE, whispering)
Don’t worry, Sky-Byte. I’ll make sure Shockwave doesn’t end up as ol’ Screamer’s souvenir.

SKY-BYTE
(doubtful)
Why are you trying to do something that would get you exiled???

KNOCK OUT
Because that bum we have for a “fearless leader” hasn’t even paid me. And you know that I need to pay off my debts!!!

SKY-BYTE
Very well.
(to the other Transformers in the base)
I unfortunately have no choice but to accept Starscream’s terms. We wouldn’t want to delay this raid, after all.

ARCEE is somewhat baffled at how easily SKY-BYTE flipped. But she tries not to think too much about it due to having more important things to think about.

ARCEE
Okay, then. It’s all set. All we need is Sky-Byte’s half of the blueprint.

SKY-BYTE hands his half of the blueprint to BREAKAWAY. He looks at the blueprint and immediately knows what it is.

BREAKAWAY
(with shock)
Holy scrap!!! This is a transwarp unit!!! It’s used to transport people through space and time!!!

ARCEE
How fast can you make one up????!!!!

BREAKAWAY
Two hours maximum.

ARCEE
(smiling, to BREAKAWAY)
Then get on it!!! We’ll wait for ya here!!!

Two hours later, the transwarp unit is completed and ready to go.

BREAKAWAY
Okay, it’s finished!!!

ARCEE
(proud)
Awesome job, Breakaway!!! Now we can finally rescue our comrades!!!

BREAKAWAY then activates the transwarp unit.

BREAKAWAY
When we’re finished with this mission, I’ll press this switch on my wrist and the transwarp unit will open automatically, so we don’t have to worry about being stuck in Quintessa forever.

ARCEE
(to the Autobots, with an inspirational tone)
Okay, ‘bots. It’s time to rock!!!

STARSCREAM
(to the Decepticons)
Decepticons, scramble!!!

SKY-BYTE
(to the Battlechargers)
Battlechargers, prepare to annihilate anyone that dares to oppose us!!!!

The Autobots and the Decepticons jump through the portal generated by the transwarp unit. After going through, the portal closes.

FADE IN TO

QUINTESSA – THE COMMUNICATION ROOM

We see the three QUINTESSON judges communicating with JHIAXUS.

QUINTESSON #1
Everything is going according to plan, Lord Jhiaxus.

QUINTESSON #2
We’ve managed to crack the Autobot leader.

QUINTESSON #3
And now, we’re preparing for the next phase of our master plan!!!

JHIAXUS
Excellent. Soon, Rodimus Prime will destroy his own allies. He will try to stop himself, but he won’t be able to do so, thanks to his now unstable mind!!! You Quintessons have done well. My master would be most pleased. He has unfortunately been very displeased as of late due to the death of one of his agents. Thanks to that, we have lost control over Eukaris. But thanks to you, my allies, our plans for conquest are not totally foiled.

FADE IN TO

QUINTESSA – THE JUNGLE

We see the Autobots and the Decepticons walking through the jungle. Suddenly, THUNDERHOOF stops and sees something.

THUNDERHOOF
(shocked)
EY-YO!!! Wha’s dat???!!!!!

We then see some SHARKTICONS patrolling around the perimeter. KNOCK OUT gets an idea.


KNOCK OUT
(smirking)
I know what to do!!!! We’ll use live bait!!!!

Then, every Autobot and Decepticon there looks at QUAKE.

QUAKE
(frustrated)
Awwwwww, scrap!!!!

Then, QUAKE goes to distract the two SHARKTICONS while the others quietly approach the castle.

QUAKE
(nervously, to the SHARKTICONS)
Ummm, hola señores!!!

The SHARKTICONS look at him with confusion, and then, they jump on top of him and start eating him.

QUAKE
(being eaten)
BABALÚUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!

Meanwhile, the rest of the Transformers go through the castle door, but we see that there are more SHARKTICONS standing guard there.

SHARKTICONS
(high-pitched snorting growl)

REV
(frustrated)
Frag!!!!

HOSEHEAD
Yow, these guys are ugly!!!!

Meanwhile, in the communications room, the QUINTESSONS hear an alarm ringing.

QUINTESSON #2
INTRUDERS!!!!

JHIAXUS
(desperate)
Quickly, send out every Sharkticon you have to take care of these intruders!!!!

Then, an army of SHARKTICONS is dispatched to attack the Autobots and Decepticons.

SIDE BURN
(shocked, looking at the SHARKTICON army)
Oh, brother!!!

MINERVA
(with determination)
C’mon, guys!!!! Let’s get these weird chompazoids!!!

MINERVA then draws her Sais and slices a SHARKTICON in half. She is quickly followed by KNOCK OUT beating another SHARKTICON and STRONGARM jumping on another one.

STRONGARM
(to the SHARKTICON)
Prepare for some major butt-kicking from an officer of the law!!!!

Then, we see another SHARKTICON jumping on top of SIREN.

SIREN
(being jumped by the SHARKTICON)
YOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!

SMOKESCREEN comes in and pulverizes the SHARKTICON with a missile from one of his shoulder cannons. He then helps SIREN out.

SMOKESCREEN
Admit it, Siren. You’re gettin’ old.

SIREN
Oh, yeah???!!! Have you looked in the mirror lately????!!!

While the two old grouches bicker between themselves, they are ripping a large amount of SHARKTICONS apart.

SMOKESCREEN
(ticked off)
Well, I may be old, but at least I’m not as ugly as you are!!!

SIREN
(ticked off)
Very FUNNEH, WISEGAH!!!!!!

Then, WRECK-GAR comes in, pummeling two SHARKTICONS. Then, he notices that there are more SHARKTICONS coming.

WRECK-GAR
(imitating ROY SCHEIDER’S BRODY)
We’re gonna need a bigger boat!!!!

Then, ARCEE and SIDE BURN grab two SHARKTICONS and smash them on the ground.

SIDE BURN
(with a seductive tone)
Nice moves, babe.

ARCEE
(annoyed)
Shut up, you Don Juan-wannabe!!!

SIDE BURN
(keeping his seductive tone)
Ouch, that hurt!!!

Then, BUMBLEBEE and DAYTONUS charge towards a bunch of SHARKTICONS. They proceed to punch and scrap them. One of them overpowers BUMBLEBEE.

BUMBLEBEE
(desperate)
HEEEEEEEEEEELP!!!!!!!

DAYTONUS then runs in to save his little buddy.

DAYTONUS
(scrapping the SHARKTICON)
Eyyyyyy, nobody does dat to my buddy!!!

Then, we see DRIFT and WHEELJACK taking down a vast number of SHARKTICONS like bosses!!!

WHEELJACK
(insanely charging toward a SHARKTICON)
KHAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!

WHEELJACK charges towards a SHARKTICON and kicks his face so hard that his teeth start falling out. Then DRIFT prepares to engage another SHARKTICON.

DRIFT
(calmly, with a smirk)
You really want to try your luck against me???

DRIFT then slices the SHARKTICON in half. However, we see another large batch of SHARKTICONS being dispatched.

ARCEE
(frustrated)
Scrap!!!! More of these fish-faced creeps!!!!

We see the Autobots and the Decepticons engaging more SHARKTICONS, but then, another batch is coming towards them. A SHARKTICON from this new batch jumps on KNOCK OUT and STRONGARM.

KNOCK OUT
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!!

STRONGARM
HEEEEEEEEEELP!!!!!!

Suddenly, we see QUAKE’S head bouncing to the rescue!!!! He bites the SHARKTICON on the leg and it roars in pain.

SHARKTICON
(doing a high-pitched growl)

Then, KNOCK OUT and STRONGARM jump on the SHARKTICON and start pummeling it, meanwhile, some of the other SHARKTICONS start transforming into robot mode.

STARSCREAM
(scared)
We’re getting scrapped!!! This is madness!!!

ARCEE
(with an inspiring tone)
Maybe, but they don’t know that we’re a million times more insane that they are!!! CHARGE!!!!

Then, we see all the Autobots and the Decepticons (including QUAKE’S head bouncing on the ground) charging towards the new batch of SHARKTICONS. The SHARKTICONS are overwhelmed by this small but deadly “Charge of the Light Brigade”. Meanwhile, inside the palace, the QUINTESSONS are getting ready to leave.

QUINTESSON #1
(desperate)
They’re advancing on the palace.

JHIAXUS
(through the communicator)
Take your research notes and leave the planet immediately!!! Send your allies to take the captives and bring them to me!!!

QUINTESSON #1
Yes, sir.

The QUINTESSON then orders his two allies to take the captives to the ship. Meanwhile, the Autobots and the Decepticons keep bashing their way through the seemingly endless amount of SHARKTICONS. WHEELJACK is preparing to fire a missile launcher.

WHEELJACK
(carrying the missile launcher)
PREPARE TO TASTE MY FIREPOWER, FOOD LOVERS!!!!!

WHEELJACK fires the missile and when it explodes, it destroys a large amount of SHARKTICONS. Meanwhile, we see MINERVA jumping around and stabbing large numbers of SHARKTICONS with her Sais.

MINERVA
(smiling)
Thanks, ya fat dweebs, I really needed the exercise!!!!
(jumping on a SHARKTICON)
HI-YAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!

MINERVA jumps on a SHARKTICON and stabs him. Meanwhile KNOCK OUT and STRONGARM are surrounded by some SHARKTICONS. They look at each other with a smirk and they start violently jumping on the SHARKTICONS. Meanwhile, the two remaining QUINTESSONS are floating towards the cell blocks. They manage to open the cell doors. However, REV and HOSEHEAD come in and see them.

REV
(angrily)
Freeze, ya ugly frags!!!!!

The QUINTESSONS then look around and draw some blasters. They open fire and REV and HOSEHEAD evade the blasts.

HOSEHEAD
(shocked)
Gee whiz, those guys are armed!!!!

REV
(sarcastically)
NOOOOOOO, REALLY????!!!!! I didn’t notice that!!!

The two QUINTESSON judges keep firing at the two Autobots. Then, they both show the face of death!!!!

QUINTESSON #2
Prepare for your end, Autobots.

QUINTESSON #3
Soon, Cybertron shall be born anew!!!!

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN

THE CASTLE – PRISON HALLWAY

We see the two QUINTESSON judges firing at REV and HOSEHEAD. Suddenly, ARCEE and STRONGARM come in with some giant machine guns they took from the armory.

ARCEE, STRONGARM
(in unison, with intensity)
EAT LEAD, YA SLIMY CREEPS!!!!

STRONGARM and ARCEE fire some devastating rounds from the machine guns and the QUINTESSONS are then engulfed by a deadly barrage of bullets!!! The two five-faced beings then fall on the ground, green liquid coming out of the holes in their bodies. Then, ARCEE opens the door and finds a totally weakened and emotionally unstable RODIMUS cuffed to the wall.

ARCEE
(shocked)
Rodimus!!!

STRONGARM, HOSEHEAD and REV come in. STRONGARM frees RODIMUS by blasting the cuffs off. Meanwhile, HOSEHEAD and REV notice three operating tables at the far corner of the cell and on them; we see NIGHTBEAT, TANKOR and SHOCKWAVE, dismantled and completely battered.

HOSEHEAD
(shocked)
PRIMUS!!!

REV
(disgusted)
EWWWWWWW!!!!!

Then, we see ARCEE holding RODIMUS in her arms.

ARCEE
(softly, trying to calm RODIMUS down)
Rodimus, it’s me. Arcee…

RODIMUS
(trembling, traumatized)
Arcee… dear Arcee… they stood right in front of me… gloating… they made me suffer… their expressions… their faces….

ARCEE
(comforting RODIMUS)
Don’t think about it… let us help you…

STRONGARM comes in and helps ARCEE with RODIMUS. They carry him out of the cell. MINERVA comes in and looks at RODIMUS.

MINERVA
(shocked)
Golly!!!!

ARCEE
(with a sad tone)
Those beasts totally shattered him.

RODIMUS
(trembling, delirious)
NIGHTBEAT!!!! I FAILED!!!! IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME!!!!

MINERVA then goes in and finds HOSEHEAD and REV standing there in shock while looking at the remains of SHOCKWAVE, TANKOR and NIGHTBEAT. She comes in and looks at NIGHTBEAT’S remains with shock as well.

MINERVA
(with shock)
Nightbeat!!!

She approaches the operating table and grabs NIGHTBEAT’S head. She is reduced to tears. She can’t handle the pain. HOSEHEAD and REV both comfort her. Then, KNOCK OUT comes in and finds TANKOR and SHOCKWAVE.

KNOCK OUT
(sardonically)
Geez, those guys really have no style!!!

KNOCK OUT then takes a giant paper bag out of his back and puts their pieces in it. Just before he puts SHOCKWAVE’S head in the bag, he talks to it.

KNOCK OUT
(smiling)
Don’t worry boss, I’ll have ya back to normal in no time!!!

KNOCK OUT then heads out. MINERVA then carries the operating table with NIGHTBEAT’S pieces outside. Meanwhile, the other Autobots and Decepticons are fighting the remaining SHARKTICON hordes. SMOKESCREEN and SIREN keep bashing SHARKTICONS while bickering.

SIREN
(angry, to SMOKESCREEN while beating a SHARKTICON)
I oughta pop ya one LAHK AHM doin’ ta dis creep right here!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(angry, to SIREN while decapitating a SHARKTICON)
Yeah??? Well, c’mon then!!!! Try and bash me!!!! I’ll rip yer head out like this!!!!

While SIREN and SMOKESCREEN keep bickering, we see BUMBLEBEE riding a SHARKTICON. The SHARKTICON desperately tries to get BUMBLEBEE off his back!!!

BUMBLEBEE
(happily riding the SHARKTICON)
YAHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! RIDE ‘EM, COWBEE!!!!!!!!

Then, some SHARKTICONS surround DAYTONUS and he just keeps his cool and yawns. After he yawns, he punches a big rock and it lands right on top of the SHARKTICONS.

DAYTONUS
(cool)
Now dat’s how ya do it!!!

STARSCREAM comes in and fires cluster bombs at the SHARKTICONS. They immediately explode on impact. Meanwhile, THUNDERHOOF charges towards another horde of SHARKTICONS.

THUNDERHOOF
(charging)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

The SHARKTICONS fly out of range when THUNDERHOOF rams into them. SKY-BYTE and the Battlechargers are ripping apart the last SHARKTICON units. Then, the Transformers that went to the palace come out and BREAKAWAY presses his wrist switch, which activates the transwarp unit.

BREAKAWAY
Okay, boys!!! It’s time to go!!!!

KNOCK OUT scoops up QUAKE’S parts. The Autobots and the Decepticons (and QUAKE’S head) go into the portal. After they arrive safe and sound on Earth, all the Transformers split up, heading back to their respective teams.

STARSCREAM
(authoritatively, to the Decepticons)
Very good, Decepticons, now we must return to base. We’ll deal with the Autobums another day!!!

SKY-BYTE
(authoritatively, to the Battlechargers)
Battlechargers, time to find another base!!!!

The Autobots let them go. They’ve had enough for one day.

ARCEE
(with a bittersweet tone)
We’ve won… but the price of victory was really high…

We see STRONGARM strapping RODIMUS onto a medical berth because of his unstable psychological condition, while MINERVA takes NIGHTBEAT’S parts into her repair bay. Once inside, she starts crying once more. The Autobots may have brought RODIMUS and NIGHTBEAT back, but the QUINTESSONS have caused a lot of damage. It’ll take some time for the entire team to recover. Meanwhile, we see a ship heading towards JHIAXUS’ base on the Manganese Mountains. We see GLOWSTRIKE and SUNSTORM along with JHIAXUS. We see the lead QUINTESSON judge coming in.

QUINTESSON #1
(to JHIAXUS)
My people may have failed to bring the captives here, but I have brought the research notes along with the plans.

JHIAXUS
Excellent, my friend. Even though your cohorts paid the price for their failure, you will be rewarded for your success. I want you to build a new base to run your operations. Head to Planet Z. That will be your new home.

QUINTESSON #1
It shall be done, Lord Jhiaxus.

The QUINTESSON then heads out of the palace. JHIAXUS then smirks while his eyes start glowing.

JHIAXUS
(smirking)
Everything is going according to plan.
