Episode Summary

The Big Broadcast of 2006

A Quintesson journal lies hidden somewhere on the Planet Junkion. Naturally, the Quintessons desperately want it back, but the Junkions pose an obvious problem. The solution is subliminal messages that leave the Junkions attacking whoever they encounter, such as Sky Lynx and Astrotrain. A sudden screw-up then does the opposite to the Junkions. The rest of the galaxy also soon hears the messages, and chaos results quickly. What are the Autobots and the Decepticons each going to do about this?

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Ultra Magnus: I know you're bored, Rodimus, but with the mantle of leadership comes obligations.
        Rodimus Prime: Mmm. Don't suppose I could interest you in a used mantle?

      • Blaster: We're outgunned, man! We don't have a chance!
        Kup: Boy, that's what makes life interesting.
        Rodimus Prime: Or over!

      • Cyclonus: Galvatron, where are you going?
        Galvatron: To the signal. To be a winner. 'Cause I believe in me!
        Scourge: Isn't that what Wreck-Gar said?

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • G.I. Joe
        One of the TV shows that are being broadcast through space is titled Space Age Jack, which seems to be a parody of the fellow Hasbro series, where the villains are reptilian, symbolic of the terrorists of Cobra, and the heroes yell the rally cry "Yo, Jack!", with its leader being voiced by Michael Bell, who portrayed Duke, one of the Joe leaders from that series.

      • Wreck-Gar: I pity the fool who messes with us!
        This is a play on one of Mr. T's famous catchphrases.

      • Junkions: "Sorry about that, Chief." "Missed Me by that much."

        These are catchphrases from the 1966-1969 classic TV series, Get Smart. Dick Gautier, the voice of Rodimus Prime, played Hymie the Robot on Get Smart.
