OPTIMUS PRIME (V.O.)

Jazz, report security status.

COMMAND CENTER - ANGLE ON THE CONSOLES

JAZZ:

No sign of Decepticons in this sector, Prime.

PRIME:

What about Moon Base 2?

JAZZ:

Jazz to Moon Base 2.

PAN UP and through the sky to -

ANOTHER MOON:

This is the second moon. It is much closer to Cybertron than the

first one. This is where Bumblebee and Spike are stationed.

JAZZ (V.O.)

Jazz to Moon Base 2.

ANGLE ON BUMBLEBEE AND SPIKE

They stand together a communication console. Spike is now 35

years old. Bumblebee looks as he has always looked, save for a

couple of funny bumper stickers on his tail: I (heart)

Cybertron. I (club) Decepticons.

BUMBLEBEE:

Bumblebee and Spike here.

JAZZ (V.O.)

We're about to send up the bird.

Any Decepticon shenanigans in your sector?

BUMBLEBEE:

All clear, Jazz.

(pause)

SPIKE:

Hey, Ironhide, tell my son, Daniel, I miss him,

and tell him I'll be coming home as soon as we've

kicked Megatron's tail across the galaxy.

CUT TO:

INT. THE SHUTTLE

Ironhide and Prowl sit at the controls, running a series of

pre-launch tests.

IRONHIDE:

Will do, Spike.

ANGLE ON PRIME, CLIFFJUMPER, AND THE OTHERS

Standing at the Command Center, watching:

PRIME:

Commence countdown, Cliffjumper.

CLIFFJUMPER:

Five...Four...Three...Two...

THE LUNAR "MOUNTAIN"

Suddenly, smoke starts pouring out of the mountain.

CLIFFJUMPER:

One....

Then, the "mountain" which must be made of paper mache or

something blows away revealing --

The shuttle!

CLIFFJUMPER (V.O.)

Liftoff.

Suddenly, the shuttle rips out of the ground in a ball of fire.

As it takes off, we realize this isn't any dinky shuttle, but a

massive ship, capable of carrying all the energon needed to

fight a war and an army to boot.

The screen is bathed in smoke and fire which slowly clears.
