The Dynobots are trying to get off-world and stealing credits by stealing Energon. Meanwhile Scorponok who is now the leader of the Decepticons throws a wounded Megatron onto the Death-World of Junkion. Megatron rebuilds himself on the planet and finds a Quintessenton to guide him as his slave. Back on Cybertron Scorponok plans on stealing Energon from the same place as the Dynobots. Grimlock triggers the alarm which summons the Autobot Sky Lynx.

Optimus Prime is trying to unite the Cybertronians and deals with both Scorponok and the Decepticons as well as the Dynobots.
