Three Autobots are all that stand between Megatron and the All Spark.
Having just dispatched Bumblebee, Megatron pursues the All Spark into space, intent on intercepting the cube before it reaches its destination - the Alkaris Anomaly, a wormhole that would transport it to any one of an infinite number of potential locations throughout the universe. Passing by Cybertron's moon, Megatron finds himself ensnared by a powerful tractor beam that pulls him down to the moon's surface. Freeing himself by destroying the beam projector with a reverse particle stream, Megatron turns his weapons on the Autobots responsible - Jazz, Ratchet and Ironhide - but soon realises that this is what they want, as it will delay him from his pursuit of the All Spark.
Instead, Megatron summons Devastator from Cybertron to fight in his place as he goes after the cube, but Megatron proves unable to stop the All Spark from entering the anomaly, and decides to enter it himself. The battle on the moon comes to an explosive end when Devastator unleashed a foldspace warhead - while he himself is at ground zero - and the combatants all vanish in a flash of light. Meanwhile, and Megatron is disgorged from the wormhole in some far-off region of space, with no trace of the All Spark...

"Suddenly it all makes sense. The diversions, the distractions, the false trails. Optimus Prime's intention was to keep me from the All Spark just long enough to lose it in the vastness of the cosmos. I'm so very nearly impressed."
"Yah! As if my bodywork hadn't taken enough hits today!"

Items of note
- The events of Prelude: Megatron take place after the first issue of Prime Directive - except that the reprinting of that issue won't be finished until the next edition of Transformers Comic, so readers are getting a glimpse into the future with this issue.
- As in the film itself, Brawl is here named "Devastator." Amusingly, to amp up his "heavily-armed" appearance even more, he's decorated with a pair of bandoleers. These straps are colored purple, which combine well with his normal green coloration to bring to mind the classic Devastator green-purple color scheme.
- The foldspace warhead scatters the characters throughout space, setting up the plot for the next four issues.
- The story was reprinted as part of Saga of the Allspark #1.
