  • Episode Description
  • While Optimus Prime and some of the Autobots are dealing with Decepticons at Maharaja, Soundwave begins an attack at Autobot headquarters resulting in Sparkplug being kidnapped. Dr. Arkeville, an evil scientist and the Decepticons' ally, enslaves Sparkplug with a hypno-chip as a test of the device. It works and more humans will soon be subjected to them. Megatron has a dangerous new scheme in the works, and it includes a new space bridge. As for Sparkplug, it is decided that he can better serve Megatron by infiltrating Autobot HQ, ultimately making them vulnerable to a new attack.moreless

  • A new space bridge is built to deliver a "special cargo" to Earth. Possibly the best episode of the first season. Casey Kasem excellent at voicing the Dr. Arkeville character.

    • Goof: Soundwave is seen with an Autobot logo when he ejects Laserbeak to abduct Sparkplug from Autobot HQ.

    • Goofs: When the fake Optimus Prime is brought out at Decepticon headquarters, Skywarp speaks with Starscream's voice when he suggests they prepare to attack him. And it seemed kind of strange that Sparkplug was able to take on the fake despite being significantly smaller than him.

    • While going after Rumble, Sideswipe's leg passes through Spike.
