Universe: Featuring the Wreckers
After the Quintessons launched their assault on Cybertron in an attempt to retake the Transformers' homeworld, Admiral Krahulik watched the Paradigm's monitors in fear. He was surprised to see the Transformers, who at first were confused and disoriented, begin to mount a successful counterattack.
He was surprised further to see the planet's orbital defenses, which should have been deactivated during the planet's recent metamorphosis, turn and fire on the Paradigm. Unknown to Krahulik, the orbital defenses had been operated by Strika and Obsidian. Krahulik and his crew died as the Paradigm exploded.
