  • Sentinel Prime mysteriously captures the most powerful Decepticons while the Autobots are wary of his methods and wonder if he's had assistance.

  • Quotes (6)

    • Yoketron: (To Prowl) You must never sacrifice a part of the future to bring back a part of the past. When the time comes, you will understand.

    • Warpath: (Dragging Prowl into Yoketron's dojo) Ask me, he should rust in the stockade. Any Autobot who won't fight the Decepticons is no better than the Cons himself! We're at war! Prowl: It's not my war! Warpath: Then maybe I should take you out back and make it your war!

    • Lockdown: Couldn't resist that old armor though, could ya? What makes you think you can handle it this time? Prowl: I've learned something since then; It's the ninja bot, not the weapon.

    • Optimus Prime: Step away from the Autobot! Liar Starscream: What? This isn't my Autobot, I'm just holding it for a friend!

    • Prowl: You led the attack on the fortress. You took the protoforms! Lockdown: If my first act as a bounty hunter was betraying my sacred sensei, everything since has been easy.

    Notes (3)

    • Yoketron is named for the lead designer of TakaraTomy, Hideaki Yoke. TakaraTomy, originally called Takara, was the company that produced the Microman and Diaclone toylines, which would later be adapted into the first Transformers toys. They would later cancel Microman and Diaclone, exclusively producing Transformers ever since.

    • George Takei, best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek, becomes the second Star Trek actor, after Leonard Nimoy, to lend his voice to a Transformers character. Takei is the first, however, to so in Transformers TV series: Nimoy's role as Galvatron in the original 1986 movie was taken over by Frank Welker in the TV series that followed.

    • This episode was leaked on YouTube on 03/27/09.
