Long ago, on the planet Cybertron... as Decepticon forces rise up to battle the Autobot leadership, ORION PAX leads a counter-terror strike team. After tracking down a mysterious bomber named HOT ROD, Orion and his team learn Autobot leader ZETA PRIME has been draining the energy of the civilian population of Nyon to power his vamparc weaponry—and when Zeta's forces attack, Hot Rod is forced to destroy the city he had vowed to protect. But even that desperate move doesn't stop Zeta from beating Pax to the ground.
