Full Details

The Joes are fighting a Destro-led squad of vipers at a port. The tide is turned against the Joes as Cobra unleashes a group flight pods, a new type of technology, on the Joes. These new flight pods not only defeat the Joes and allow Destro to escape (with the help of Scrap Iron) but demolished an operation the Joes that had planned for weeks. These events are told in an after action report by Flint to Duke, who is in his sixties.

In Oregon near Mt. St. Hilary, a large space ship crashes in the forest. This ship has malfunctioned because it was ill-suited for interstellar travel. The ship's energy signature has been spotted and matched to a previous one by Cobra. Cobra Commander has dispatched a squad to retrieve the ship immediately.

A Decepticon, Starscream, in his updated F-16 airplane form, has been monitoring the Cobra forces on Cobra Island. He talks about how he is in an energon deprived state. Starscream has just recently reformatted himself to the current F-16 form that he is in. He also detected the incoming ship.

A Joe team is then sent to the crash site in Oregon. This team includes Snake-Eyes, Airtight, Bazooka, Blowtorch, and Doc and is lead by Flint. They meet up with Spirit, who was near the site of crash and was training some new Joe recruits. Those recruits are Cover Girl, Alpine, and Barbecue.

As the Joes arrive at the crash site they discover that Cobra has beaten them there. A fight begins between the two teams. Snake-Eyes takes out several of the vipers, just as a FANG helicopter is lifting a large tarp covered box out of the forest. Alpine and Bazooka work together to force the FANG to drop its cargo and then Blowtorch destroys it. The cargo is revealed to be a Transformer named Blaster. It is something that none of the Joes have ever seen before.

After returning to The Pit, Spirit and Flint are being de-briefed by Duke. He then introduces them to Scarlett and Stalker, who are also in their sixties. They show Flint and Spirit some archival footage of two Transformers fighting. Those Transformers are Megatron and Optimus Prime. This footage is the beginning of the arms race with Cobra. The Joes job is now to keep World War III from happening.
