- Major characters (in order of appearance): Downshift, Scythe, Soundwave, Perceptor, Landquake, Skyfall, Sentinel Maximus, Unicron, Omega Prime, Primus, Optimus prime, Ultra Magnus, Alpha Trion, Optimus Prime, Override, Megatron
The battle between the Council of Sages and Unicron's forces continues. Soundwave vents frustration as he is pummeled from all sides by Downshift, Perceptor, and a very agile Scythe. Unfortunately, Skyfall and Landquake are also not faring well. Their combined shielding measures reach their limit and the two vanish in a brilliant explosion which wipes out several Mini-Cons nearby. Sentinel Maximus mourns the loss of Skyfall, and voices an apology to Vector Prime for failing to protect him.
The fight is ended when Primus completes his transformation into robot mode and looms over them. Unicron curses and flees.
Several months later, Sentinel Maximus, Downshift, Perceptor, the Council of Sages, Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus, and a restored Alpha Trion meet with Unicron Trilogy Optimus Prime and several of his crew (including Jetfire, Hot Shot, Scattorshot, Red Alert, and Coby, Bud, and Lori). Unicron Trilogy Optimus Prime has informed them of the death of Vector Prime, and Override decides on a memorial for Skyfall on his native Velocitron. Their work is not completely finished, however. Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus are planning to pursue Unicron, and Alpha Trion and Over-run pledge their assistance to the Council of Sages to hunt down the remaining Mini-Con insurgents. Alpha Trion hopes this marks a new age for the Transformers.
Meanwhile, Skyfall and Landquake appear, giving off smoke, in a forest. Where are they? When are they? These questions are answered as an unfamiliar Megatron stands over them.
- Primus' upper lip is colored white as if it were an open, goofy grin.
- Over-run's name is still misspelled as "Overrun."
- Megatron should have green eyes.
Items of note
- Most of this issue, as with the previous issue, take place during the Cybertron episode "Cybertron", specifically during Primus' transformation sequence.
- With the above in mind, it seems Soundwave successfully fled this battle, though we do not see his escape, as Soundwave shows up later in the television series.
- Optimus Primes from two different continuity families meet! Fangasm!
- Vector Prime's death occurred in the Cybertron episode "Guardian."
- Generation One Megatron appears in his Classics body.
