  • Episode Description
  • Returning to Cybertron with energy is the Decepticons' top priority. The new space bridge could do that, but it has problems, like possibly being fatal to whoever tries to go through it. Finding where the Decepticons are hiding, Bumblebee and Spike discover what they are doing, only they don't have a chance to warn Optimus. The Decepticons instead have nasty plans for them. A space bridge trip awaits Spike, while a little reprogramming on Bumblebee threatens to see the Decepticons finally destroy the other Autobots.moreless

  • The whole episode is pretty much how to get the space bridge working. Cool concept but there were some annoying flaws in this episode.

  • Quotes (4)

    • Bumblebee: (Upon discovering that the cave doesn't contain the space bridge.) I don't understand it. Gears: I think your memory chips could use a few volts to shake them up.

    • Soundwave: Ravage, stand aside. Spike: (Energon cage disappears.) Well, uh, I guess I've served my time and I'm free to go, huh? Soundwave: Free to go.. to Cybertron.

    • Optimus Prime: (shocked) Megatron lives.

    • Bumblebee: How are we gonna get out of this? Spike: By the skin of our teeth! Bumblebee: I didn't know human teeth had skin!

    Notes (3)

    • This is the first time Teletran-1 is referred to by name, although Optimus Prime refers to it as just Teletran in this episode.

    • In this episode, Optimus PrimeĀ“s precision shooting can be seen when he opens the Space bridge transport ship with only one shot, destroying the belts that restrain Spike.

    • Optimus Prime's head is altered from this episode onwards. Instead of a rounded head with a slim metal mouth plate, Optimus has a square head with a fuller, more mature mouth plate.

    Trivia (6)

    • Goofs: Megatron's Decepticon logo is briefly missing when he exits the spacebridge on Cybertron.

    • Bumblebee is seen in robot mode with Optimus Prime and other Autobots when Sparkplug begins to worry about him and Spike not having returned from spying on the Decepticons just before Bumblebee returns in car mode.

    • In the 1986 comic #18 "The Bridge To Nowhere" the Spacebridge is in fact a partially constructed road bridge, much like the Golden Gate Bridge. Half way along the bridge is the Spacebridge portal.

    • There seems to be two Starscreams standing next to each other after Megatron disappears into the space bridge but, in the next scene it is Skywarp who is standing next to Starscream.

    • Optimus, Ironhide, Ratchet, Prowl, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Jazz and Gears are trapped in the cave by the decepticons because they filled the escape route with stones and boulders. How did Brawn, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker get in the cave?
