Star Brigade and the Oktober Guard battle the robot drones on the asteroid. Red Star's team go to attack the drones at their source and Duke follows with Star Brigade. Payload and Dragonsky are left to guard the shuttles.
Zartan and Destro lead a procession of weapons through Darklonia. The Darklonians saw what happened to Darklon and are afraid to stop them. Hawk and Stalker see this and report back to General Liederkranz. The General doesn't want to listen to Hawk's advice until he threatens to leave.
Star Brigade and the Oktober Guard realize too late that the drones have back tracked to attack their shuttles. The Joes shuttle is destroyed and the Russian shuttle is damaged before the teams return.
Destro and Cobra Commander prepare their attack into Wolkekuckuckland. Cobra Commander goes up the center, and Destro and Zartan are to flank them from the sides. Hawk has prepared for this, as the side Destro was going to attack is just fake tanks made out of cargo containers, fuel drums, and telephone poles, enabling the General to concentrate his resources elsewhere. Cobra Commander is forced to retreat.
Red Star and Duke plan an attack on the asteroids control center, and Payload and Dragonsky attempt to repair the Russian shuttle.
