Episode 6 is the sixth episode of War For Cybertron Trilogy: Chapter 2: Earthrise. This episode was written by Tim Sheridan.

Plot

Above the planet where the Allspark lies, the Autobots and Decepticons battle while Deseeus closes in to exact revenge upon them all.

Synopsis

Cog informs the Autobots that before they exited the rift they acquired an unbelievable amount of data. Teletraan-1 is using every available resource to make sense of it, but they’re stuck until then.

Optimus tells Bumblebee that the Matrix remains closed to him. Optimus admits that he was foolish to believe that Megatron could be changed.

The Decepticons lock onto the Ark using a tractor beam and smash into the ship. Megatron leads Starscream, Soundwave, and the other Decepticons onto the Ark, where they walk into an ambush.

Megatron chases after Optimus and a battle ensues. Optimus draws his blaster on Megatron. He saw the future and the unending pain and suffering Megatron will cause. He can end it now before any of it happens. Cog interrupts, which distracts Optimus long enough for Megatron to get the upper hand. However, not for long, as Doubledealer and his band of mercenaries blow a hole into the side of the Ark, which causes Cog to be pulled out into the Atmosphere.

Jetfire, Elita One, Red Alert, and Chromia lead the Decepticons to Kaon Arena, which appears to be abandoned. So, Elita moves forward with her plans to set charges around the area to blow it up. She then comes across the transmission from Doubledealer to Megatron, revealing that Optimus and his crew are in trouble. Elita then notices Shockwave sneaking up behind her, but when she turns around, he disappears. She then calls into Jetfire and tells him to have the Guardians begin their assault. Shockwave then makes himself visible, revealing his new cloaking tech.

Optimus and Megatron argue over who will retrieve the Allspark from earth. Optimus fears that Megatron will enslave their world and attacks Megatron.

With the mercenaries attacking the Ark, the Autobots and Decepticons are forced to work together. Bumblebee and Starscream order Soundwave to amplify their distress signal. Arcee reports that the reflector shields are down 13%. They receive another direct hit and are left without power completely.

While Exhaust and Bug Bite seal the last remaining breach, they are attacked and sent flying out into the atmosphere.

A fight ensues between Elita and Shockwave, during which time she realizes that he’s draining Decepticon spark to enhance his own abilities.

Jetfire, Red Alert, Chromia, Scrapface, and the remaining bots find themselves under attack by cloaked Decepticons.

Megatron begs Optimus to show mercy. When he does, Megatron electrocutes him to gain the upper hand. With Optimus down, Megatron steals the Matrix.

Doubledealer calls into the Autobots and Decepticons to tell them to prepare to be boarded. When Bumblebee asks who’s paying him, Doubledealer reveals that his actions stem from a need for revenge. As it turns out, Doubledealer is actually being controlled by Deseeus.

Wheeljack has taken over the Nemesis with Ratchet and Sideswipe, which he uses to fire back at Deseeus.

Cog manages to find his way onto Deseeus’ ship. He finds Deesus and holds him at gunpoint.

Scrapface attempts to explain to Spinister that they need to turn around because the arena is rigged to blow.

Elita wakes up strapped to a procedure table. Before Shockwave can take her apart, Spinister returns with the other rebels.

Ironhide discovers a massive breach to Deseeus' ship. A blast to the plasma could cause an explosion. So, Bumblebee instructs Ironhide to tell Wheeljack to return to the Ark and begin repairs. Once they then realize that Optimus is still missing, Bumblebee goes searching for him.

Cog orders Deseeus to step away from the console. When he refuses, Cog shoots off one of his tentacles. Unfortunately for Cog, the Autobots are unaware that he’s taken control of the ship and continue firing, which causes him to lose his balance and allows for Deseeus to pierce his chest. With very little life in him, Cog sends a transmission to the Autobots to cease fire on the mercenary ship.

Chromia saves Jetfire, Scrapface, and the other bots from being taken into the arena by the Decepticons, shooting down their enemies, including Skytread despite the fact that he helped them escape last time.

Elita attempts to break free from her restraints as the explosive she staged quickly times down. It unfortunately blows before she can make her escape.

Optimus awakens to discover that Megatron has taken the Matrix from within him. Megatron reveals that he has foreseen certain events, for which he needs the Matrix to accomplish. Just as Megatron is about to kill Optimus, Bumblebee intervenes, causing the Decepticon leader to flee.

Optimus orders Wheeljack to put the Nemesis between them and the Fortune. The mercenary ship then explodes, sending shrapnel flying into the planet’s orbit, where advanced dinosaurs await below.
