  • The Decepticons steal a experimental female-robot ninja named Nightbird, planning to use her to infiltrate the Ark and give The Autobots the run-around by stealing Teletran 1's computer chip containing information on earth's resources.

    This was quite an enjoyable episode. Nightbird proves more than a match for the Autobots by using a Star Wars-style lightsabre on Optimus Prime and Starscream is on fine weasel-form again upon hearing that Megatron plans to have Nightbird take his place. Bombshell gets a fairly considerable amount of screentime as well when he reprogrammes Nightbird into doing Megatron's bidding. But one question remains, why steal something completely meaningless? Why not have Nightbird sabotage the Ark completely? Anyway, a fairly good episode from season 2. Only Auto Bezerk stands out as a classic in it's own right.
