  • Disjointed due to bad voice dubbing, and confusing plotlines

    Nothing major happens in this episode. The mission to locate the Omega Lock fails when a reproduction of the lock is instead found. The Autobots battle the Decepticons, and some mini-cons are killed.

    Unfortunately, Vector Prime goes back in time to stop the deaths, and the Decepticons get away with the lock. Of course, it isn't real, so nothing happens. The whole episode is pointless, and comes across as disjointed due to bad voice dubbing, and confusing plotlinesmoreless

  • QUOTES (9)

  • NOTES (6)

    • Japanese Title: "Vector Prime's Decision"

    • The first time Megatron uses his Meteor Attack, against the Mini-Cons guarding the fake Omega Lock.

    • The mini-cons known as the recon team make a valiant stand against Megatron, and are destroyed. Vector Prime uses his powers to reverse time a short period, and prevent their distruction.

    • In the Japanese version, it is explained that Vector Prime can travel back in time exactly 1 minute without causing warp distortions.

    • -Vector Prime found a lock, but it wasn't the Omega Lock.

      -The lock Vector Prime found looked identical to the Omega Lock.

      - The Decepticons capture the false Omega Lock, but it is accidentally destroyed by Thundercracker, revealing it to be an imitation

    • It was revealed that Vector Prime still has his time power which he used to come to the present.


    • Hot Shot goes out of control while racing and is about to crash into a wall, and as Clocker saves him by blasting open the wall he says "All in all it's just a break in the wall". This is almost right from Pink Floyd's classic song "The wall", in which the line was "All in all it's just another brick in the wall".

    • The concept of a Transformer weilding a time-based power that could drain their life force has been visited before (Elita-one in the original G1series season two episode "The Search for Alpha Trion).

    • After Vector Prime rolls time back a short period, Bud exclaims "It's deja-vu all over again". This phrase was originally coined by Yogi Berra.
