But not if the new Prime can rally what's left of Security Operations and the Senate Guard into a resistance! Meanwhile, with the Autobots and Decepticons declaring war on each other, a group of Cybertron's top scientists and diplomats launch a plan to get those uninterested in the fighting, including the alien A'ovan refugees living on Cybertron, a way out of the devastation to come.
