Slipstream is one of many power-enhancing Mini-Cons scattered across Earth. A member of the Gold Mini-Con Team, when Powerlinxed to a larger Transformer, Slipstream unfolds into a glider pack that allows even a bulky machine like Optimus Prime to soar long distances on air thermals. He is nearly identical to his teammate Fullspeed, and in fact Fullspeed's speed-enhancing powers complement Slipstream's glider-pack very well.

Slipstream's Mini-Con storage panel was discovered in the Mid-Atlantic, on an atoll close to where the Decepticon warship Tidal Wave was stationed as a relay point. Slipstream's glider-pack proved to be an invaluable tool in the Autobots' search for the Mini-Cons and in the fight against the Decepticlone armies.
Following the defeat of Megatron, he and the other Mini-Cons returned to Cybertron and helped form the Matrix Cannon, Nemesis Shield and Vanguard Booster, giving the Autobots the power needed to destroy Unicron.
