Galvatron and the others find Blitzwing, who is still on Charr and who tells them their comrades are on Goo. Galvatron calls off the fight to conference with their suspicious new allies, the Quintessons. The Quints secure an alliance with Galvatron by suggesting that there is a Decepticon Matrix to be found. The Junkions give the Autobots a lift and repair Springer. Rod is curious about the Quint's motives, and journeys into the Matrix once more to get a final answer. It turns out the Quints are the original creators of all Transformers eons ago when the Autobots and Decepticons had not begun to fight.
The Transformers revolted and drove the Quints off the factory of Cybertron, and the Quints have been looking for revenge ever since. Knowing this means deep trouble, Rod and the others put Cybertron on full alert, but a clever trick destroys Cybertron's power station, allowing the Deceps to literally walk in as an all-out battle begins.
