  • Episode Description
  • Things look bad for the Autobots on Goo, but they are saved by Galvatron's arrival and intent to get up to speed on recent events. While all of the Autobots busily regroup, Galvatron and the Quintessons hammer out a deal. Meanwhile, Rodimus again secures information from the Matrix, and it is again not pretty. A bitter history exists between Transformers and Quintessons, which means trouble for both sides now. However, is it already too late to foil the Quintessons' ultimate goal?moreless

    Notes (5)

    • This episode has viewers wondering whether Wheelie is male or female. When Wheelie is surrounded by the flying alien creatures, Blurr during his rambling, refers his pal as "she".

    • The scene depicts Cybertron from the past yet you see two Constructicons there (16:49).

    • Galvatron is missing his Decepticon logo(11:45).

    • In the japanese version of this episode. Trypticon was reactivated rather than being born. This was because in the japanese exclusive video release "Scramble City" which takes place before the movie. Trypricon appeared right at the end of the episode

    • First appearance of Trypticon.

    Trivia (7)

    • Goofs: The flashback through Cybertron's history seems to contradict what was learned in the episode "War Dawn". This episode indicates the Autobots were the first to be able to transform. But in the previous episode, the Decepticons had the ability as well as came into existence before the Autobots. Also during the flashback, it seems Megatron was created by the Constructions, of which there seem to be eight surrounding him when he rises from the table. And in previous episodes, it seemed Megatron came into existence before the Constructions.

    • When the Decepticons were praising Galvatron on the Quintesson ship, Starscream was there, colored like Onslaught. There were also two Shockwaves, each colored like Mixmaster!

    • Motormaster's first line was delivered by Frank Welker.

    • When Galvatron reached the Quintesson ship, he yelled, "Decepticons, fire!" But there were no other Decepticons with him!

    • When the Constructicons are building Trypticon, Vortex is colored like Octane. Plus, Long Haul is blue and orange!
