Editor’s Note = (info in parentheses) is in comic character descriptions, [Info in brackets] are my comments

News Reporter Brad Emory shows that the world is on the hunt for Jazz. The President of the United States turns off the TV. She along with Marissa Faireborn (In Charge of Construction) and Chameleon (GI Joe Intelligence) talk about the progress of building Little Cybertron on the Bikini Island in the Pacific. With Humans, Transformers and Junkicons working together the progress has been fast.

Inside the flying Autobot City aka Metrotitan, Sideswipe almost on the brink of death has been revived with the help of Junkicon leader Wreck-Gar. Arcee and Sideswipe have a conversion about Sunstreaker and Arcee’s brother. They take a space bridge to Cybertron where Sideswipe is amazed at how bad his home world has become. But Arcee tells him everything is improving.

At Sunstreaker’s place, Bob the Transformer dog alarms and then greets Sideswipe. Bob takes them to where Sunstreaker is working, Sideswipe sees Decepticons including Soundwave carrying Energon and he attacks. Sunstreaker stops him in mid fight to tell him that the Decepticons are helping with the relief effort and working with the Autobots together. Arcee tells him it’s ok, and he believes them and smiles. They then show more of the improved Cybertron and he fades away with a smile.

Actually, Sideswipe was dreaming his final dream. He was still in the status chamber and the memories were implants to make his passing more comfortable. He was surrounded by Transformers and Arcee walks out as Aileron talks to her about loss. Arcee is morning his lose and Aileron stands with her as they look at the stars.
