<Starscream, Astrotrain, and Blitzwing
are carving out their faces (along with Megatron's) on a mountainside with
their laser guns.>
Starscream: Nice work Astrotrain.
But one head does not belong.
Starscream: Yes Blitzwing, one head has
failed to lead us to victory over the Autobots.
Astrotrain: But this
mistake will be corrected!
Blitzwing and Starscream: And

<Later, Blitzwing, Astrotrain, and Starscream are
Blitzwing: I will lure Megatron into our
Astrotrain: Why not let Starscream?
Blitzwing: Ha! He's been
trying to dethrone Megatron for years. He's a failure!
Failure! I have not failed, I have just been waiting for the right time that's
all. And the time is now! I will get Megatron! <Veers off in a different

Megatron: A secret Autobot power
station...in a sewer?
Starscream: Straight ahead
Megatron: We'll need reinforcements.
<getting a little nervous> Reinforcements? But this is our mission
Megatron, we don't need to share the glory. Unless...unless Megatron is
Megatron: <pushing aside Starscream> Rah! Megatron knows no
<Starscream smiles to himself as he follows his leader. Suddenly
they are shut in by two metal doors>
Megatron: You have failed again
Starscream! It's a trap!
<gas begins to fill the room>
this isn't energy, these are absolute zero degree molecules...<Megatron
Starscream: I know what they are Megatron, and a Decepticon
who plans his escape, is hardly a failure. <he laughs as he tries to open the
escape door. It won't budge and a worried look comes over his face as he

stadium, a coach blows the whistle several times>
Coach: Block that
pass, hit him, hit him! Lay him low!
<Blitzwing, in tank mode, comes
crashing through the side of the stadium>
Coach: Kill! Kill!
Blitzwing: A battle simulation arena, an excellent base for
<A football player who has the football comes
running up to Blitzwing and stops in surprise>
<Blitzwing aims his tank gun at the football
Football player: Coach, it's a tank! What do I
Coach: Give him the ball!
<Football player throws the ball
into Blitzwing's gun barrel. Blitzwing fires it. It hits the
Blitzwing: I win! <Goes over to coach and picks him
up> You the commander in charge?
Blitzwing: No one fools Blitzwing. You are a great military
strategist. You will be my second in command!
Coach: Sorry, I've
got a contract.
Blitzwing: Contracts, like traitors, are made to be
Coach: Okay, okay, commander!
<A railway station.
Astrotrain lands and transforms into his train mode on a
Control room person: Huh? Track 9 shows an unscheduled
train. <Looks out the window> And there's no

Astrotrain: I declare this to be Astrotrain

breaks through the wall, causing panic among the people. They quickly run out of
Astrotrain: So who needs you spineless plasm-heads
<He goes back out to the rail yard and looks over the
Astrotrain: This are my troops, but even soldiers need brains.
Astrotrain can fix that. Soon you'll have the latest in computer
controls. <He tears out a computer from the control
<Back at the stadium. Blitzwing stomps into the locker room,
destroying a wall to get in. He has the coach with him, hanging by the whistle
Blitzwing: This is your new office. Now give me some military
Coach: You don't understand Mac, I only know football
Blitzwing: Tell me what's on your mind or I'll splatter it on the
wall and see for myself!
Coach: Defense! Zone defense!
Hmm, zone defense. <throws the coach into a locker.> You stay here at your
desk. Blitzwing will return!
<About a mile out of the stadium, a large
maze is being built by the Constructicons>
Scrapper: <at the maze
talking into a radio> Scrapper calling Blitzwing, what is the purpose of this
highway maze you ordered us to build?
Blitzwing: <in the stadium>
It's a zone defense, you ignorant fool! Now get to work, or you won't get your
share of the partnership I promised you! <to himself, but aloud at the
coach> I need more strategy!
Coach: Ehh....uuhhh, the long
Blitzwing: Thank you. <Transforms into his tank mode and laughs
as he drives off. He shoots a long bomb which hits a bridge. A human
immediately falls in while driving. Autobot Grapple saves
Blitzwing: Five points, at least! <Shoots the scoreboard.>
I must thank my adviser for such great strategy. With the assault of my long
bombs, I'll totally level this city in no time!
<Heading towards the
stadium are Prowl, Tracks, Skids and Blue Streak as Blitzwing continues to
Prowl: Prime says the bombs are coming from inside the
Skids: We'll stop them at the ten yard line!
Autobots approaching. <He raises his gun> Assume attack
Blitzwing: <on radio> No Scrapper, let 'em through, let
all the Autobots through! I want to take them on personally! <Scrapper obeys
and jumps into the bushes.>
<Prowl and the other Autobots are
quickly lost in the 'zone defense' the Constructicons have built. Blitzwing
transforms from his jet mode to tank mode and devastates the four enemies.
Blitzwing goes back to the stadium.>
Blitzwing: Autobots, worth 10
points each! <shoots the scoreboard four times>
<At the train
station, the trains that now have computer brains, fall in at Astrotrain's
Astrotrain: <Raising his left hand> Now repeat after
me: We, the soldiers of the Astrotrain Empire will obey Astrotrain and scavenge
the energy for his empire.
<The trains blare in response. Astrotrain
transforms into his train mode and the trains follow him into a tunnel.
One train hits an electrical wire and continues to keep hitting
Astrotrain: No, collect and process the energy! In your

your transport cars up to the pipe and fill them with the
<Another train hits a gas pipe>
Astrotrain: Good! Now,
harness the gas!
<The trains collide>
<sighs> It's hard to find good help these days.
<In the zone
?: Scrapper, how big is our zone defense?
<working on the throne made out of Autobots> I don't know, all the others
are lost in it. All I know is it's BIG. And wait'll you see the new throne I
built. It's really special.
<Powerglide flies above the zone defense
at that moment>
Powerglide: Smokescreen, Hoist, come in! I've located
the missing Autobots!
<Hoist and Smokescreen arrive at the maze and
with the help of Powerglide's directions, make their way through it
Powerglide:Turn right! Another left! And dead ahead! Begin

sitting on the throne, and causes a massive smokescreen, making his enemy cough
and gag. Meanwhile, Smokescreen and Hoist rescue the other

points for Blitzwing! <transforms into his tank mode> I'll find you
Autobots, just watch out!
<At the railroad yard>
Astrotrain, how's your job working on the railroad?
Astrotrain: Show some
respect from your leader!
Thundercracker: Leader? How do you figure that,
Astrotrain: I've got the proof right
Thrust: Where are your so-called troops?
Astroforce, fall in!
<Nothing comes out of the

Astrotrain: C'mon guys!
Thrust: Astrotrain couldn't

<One of the trains moves a
Astrotrain: Good, good! C'mon! <The trains start to really
move now> Rev up, rev up! Collect the energon cubes, show them what your made
of! <The train start off again> That's it! Faster! Faster you can do it!
That's it! Yes! <The train starts towards a wall> Wait! No! Put on your
brakes! No, STOP! That's a- <train hits a pipe> -water
<Enormous amounts of water shoot forth and sweep everything out
of the tunnel. In the sewer, Starscream and Megatron are "defrosted" and swept
away by the water also.>
Megatron: <trying to choke

Starscream: I was tricked. The

pothole> You are either lying or you're stupid!
stupid, I'm stupid!
<They start to fly over the city. Ironhide,
Optimus Prime, and Spike are watching from the ground>
and Starscream! They're back!
Optimus: And so is
Ironhide: Ya see Prime, we should have finished those
Decepticons off when we had the chance!
Optimus: Maybe I can plug this
leak. <makes his way over to the water main and shoots it, only causing more
water to shoot out. Spike is swept away>
Optimus: Spike! <He
reaches out for him> Here grab my- <another wave sweeps Spike further
Spike: Help me!
<Optimus begins to search the watery
city for him>
Optimus: Spike! Where are you? <No response. He sees
him under some heavy debris, semi-unconscious. Optimus pulls the debris away and
transforms into his trailer-truck mode, putting Spike in the cab. He starts his
air conditioner. Spike awakens.>
Optimus: How's that for

ladder. Optimus transforms again and lifts Spike up to the

Optimus: I was just
about to ask you the same question Megatron.
Megatron: Prime! Out of my

the stadium wall is destroyed by the massive water overflow then, and Astrotrain
comes floating in>
Blitzwing: Hey partner.
Blitzwing: I could use a little help
Astrotrain: Yeah, sure, right after I settle the score with you!

Devastator: You're next

this straight: I am Decepticon leader, you are recyclable!
Well put Megatron.
Devastator: Constructicons are leaders too. Blitzwing
promised. <Megatron fires on him> You try to hurt Devastator?! <He
starts towards Starscream>
Starscream: Megatron is a
Devastator: So is Starscream.
Starscream: Yes, but I'm fast!
<Quickly transforms into his jet mode and flies off.>
We've got to ban together to stop Devastator!

Ironhide: I guess
Prime was right, Megatron took care of the Decepticons for us.
Yeah, but there's only one great leader in the universe. <the rescued
