Grimlock takes The Ark out into space in search of Blaster and his young human friends, who are cruising around the orbit in the disabled Decepticon Blast Off. When the Ark caches them, the kids throw Blaster out into the space in attempt to save him from the death sentence. The furious Grimlock also hands out the same sentence to the children (and their teddy bear), but Wheeljack secretly dispatches help. It arrives in the form of Sky Lynx, an Autobot fresh from Cybertron.

"Grimlock has clouded our optical modules. We've lost sight of our true purpose for being here: to defeat the Decepticons and protect those who are most vunerable to - and least deserving of - their tyranny. Humans. Until we accomplish that, we can't shut our engines off even for a microsecond!" - Blaster


  • The artists have made a mistake on page 7. When Blaster is thrown out of Blast Off, the picture shows him ejecting from inside of Sky Lynx instead.
  • Watch for a "cameo" of Sledge Hammer! himself. :)
