- Major characters (in order of appearance): Super Stunt Team (Redline, Flat-Out, Servo), Stella Holley, Rollbar, Top Gear, Midship
In the Deccan Plateau in India, the Super Stunt Team, Stella, and Rollbar (who had been recently released from his Mini-Con storage panel stored in Redline's chest) scope out a spaceship from Cybertron that recently landed. Rollbar and Flat-Out are sent to scout ahead and determine if its pilot is an Autobot or Decepticon; if Autobot, Stella would act as interpreter and try to negotiate for technology that would help the Mini-Cons establish their own free colony. If it was a Deception, then they would teleport out of there.
However, when Rollbar and Flat-Out move away to investigate, the others are attacked by two Mini-Cons, Top Gear and Midship, who are backed up by a squad of Fixer Bugs. Midship destroys their teleportation device and gets one hand around Redline's neck, promising to "debug" them all so they no longer dream of freedom.
Flat-Out notices something's going on, and Rollbar then notices they're not alone either...
Items of note
- The Mini-Con storage panel Top Gear pulls out is the one formed in the previous issue, from a captured Mini-Con.
- According to Hirofumi Ichikawa, Rollbar's appearance in this story is to explain where he came from in the cartoon.
