STORY SO FAR:
Rodimus leads a dysfunctional group of Autobots on the starship Lo st Light, in search of the legendary Knights of Cybertron. Seeking their vanished crewmate, Ultra Magnus, they discover Cybertron’s missing moon, Luna 1—and are ambushed! On the moon’s surface, Ratchet finds himself at the mercy of unhinged Pharma; onboard the Lost Light, Swerve and Skids fall to the brutal Legislators! Rodimus and his friends are taken prisoner by the malevolent chief justice, Tyrest… when their unfamiliar cellmate makes a startling claim: that he is Ultra Magnus!
