The Wrath of the Resurrected Giant Fortress!
After being given a brief summary of what the Decepticons got up to in the previous episode, the narrator says that Deszaras and the rest of the Brestforce are heading toward the dark nebula where Deszaras' fortress is in the Thunder Arrow, which is packed full of energy they will use to release it. Deszaras says that he will soon show the Autobots the power of his fortress.
At Shuttle base, Star Saber calls together all of the Autobots and says that the Decepticons will have gone to the dark nebula where he sealed the fortress away several years a go, and release it. The Autobots reckon that Deszaras will then return to the Earth and attempt to use it to destroy the entire planet, as the fortress has the power to obliterate worlds. Blacker suggests that he, Laster and Braver take Galaxy Shuttle out and attempt to intercept the Decepticons before they re-activate the fortress, and Star Saber lets them go, saying that he'll try to contact Greatshot to provide some extra support also.
Having been washed up on a beach from the tidal wave that got them whilst they were on Atlantis, Goryu is still convinced that Deszaras will return for them, although Kakuryu believes that they may have been left behind. Yokuryu then flies back to the group and says that he's seen a shuttle base nearby, and since they haven't got anything better to do until Deszaras gets back, the Dinoforce rush off to attack it and steal more energy.
Star Saber contacts Greatshot
at the sector 2 defence force HQ and updates him on the situation and how Deszaras plans to bring his fortress back online and out of the dark nebula. Greatshot transforms and blasts off to meet up with the other Autobots who are still on the way in Galaxy Shuttle.
But the Autobots are already too late, as the Decepticons arrive at the nebula and enter it to see an almost pitch black fortress waiting for them. They head inside it and start to use up the energy they got from Atlantis, and soon computers, circuits and lights all turn back on as more and more energy is used and soon enough, the fortress is finally resurrected.
With everything in place, their new objective is simple enough: wipe out all of the Autobots, starting with Star Saber. Deszaras says that previous Decepticon leader's plans failed thanks to the Autobots, but now they will not be able to stand up to the power of his fortress. They activate the engines and set it on a course to Earth.
On Earth, the Dinoforce reach the shuttle base and attack it to start making more energy. At the Autobot Shuttle base, Star Saber and Victory Leo are about to head out into space to fight Deszaras when Wingwaver gets a report about the Dinoforce attack, so instead the Autobots set off to deal with them first. The Dinoforce soon have the base under their control and have made lots of high quality energon cubes...
...but then Star Saber and Victory Leo transform and land nearby. Victory Leo mocks them all by calling them cat burglers which Goryu isn't that happy about, so he decides to show him their true power by transforming with the rest of the Dinoforce into Dinoking. The Dinoforce shells go and attack Star Saber but all get blasted pretty quickly whilst Victory Leo easily dodges Dinoking's attacks.
As Galaxy Shuttle gets closer to the Decepticons, Blacker orders him to head back to Earth as they go out to fight. They leap out and transform into Road Caesar, but he then sees that the fortress has already been released and is heading right towards him. It shoots a massive pink laser which flings him back through space, but he is caught by Greatshot
who says that now the real fight will begin.
There isn't much the two Autobots can do though as the fortress gets into Earth's range, and Deszaras wonders if they can swallow this. He then gets the fortress to attack in an unusual way - sending out meteors from it towards the Earth at high speed, which are in the planet's atmosphere within seconds and head toward different parts of Europe.
As you can imagine, the effect that these things have on the Earth is disastrous, but there is nothing the Autobots can do to stop them as there are so many raining down.
Star Saber then sees that one of the meteors is heading towards them, and it's too late to fly out so he and Victory Leo run back and take shelter inside Shuttle base. Dinoking, however, thinks that the two Autobots are a pair of cowardly, pitiful weaklings and doesn't get what they were talking about when they mentioned the meteorite.
He then hears a noise getting louder and louder behind him and turns to take a look at what it is, to find that there is indeed a large meteorite heading straight down towards him. He starts to run off as the meteor hits, but the explosion it creates is massive and sends him flying through the air and he is forced to transform back to the individual Dinoforce members.
The heavily damaged Dinoforce land back down on the ground and Goryu curses the Autobots for using some kind of meteorite bomb to beat them. But Star Saber and the others re-appear out of the still standing Shuttle base and say that they were not the ones who launched the bombs - it was actually Deszaras in his fortress, and that he has left the Dinoforce here. Goryu believes that the Autobots are lying, but Star Saber says why would they do that? They are Autobots, after all, and he goes on to say that Deszaras does not care about the lives of his subordinates.
Star Saber then tells the others that he and Victory Leo will now go up into space and stop fortress from launching any more meteors. The Rescue team remain behind and start to give Goryu first aid even though he doesn't want any from some stinking Autobot, but his condition gets worse and he may die as Pipo starts to heal him. Jan then gets a terrible image of his friend Illumina in his head and goes out in the Illumina
II to find her and check that she's okay.
Jan heads towards the school and is glad to see that it hasn't been damaged at all as none of the meteors have landed close enough to it. The kids run out to see Jan (which means, I take it, that Jan is skipping school again in this episode) and he tells them that the meteors are the work of the Decepticons, but the Autobots will stop them. And in space, Victory Saber fires away, destroying them before they reach the Earth.
Meanwhile Greatshot and Road Caesar take heavy hits just as Victory Saber arrives and separates. Star Saber orders for them to return to Earth and get healed, and wait for further instructions as he and Victory Leo attack the giant fortress. Deszaras sees them arrive and tells his troops to go out and fight them as Liokaiser.
As Liokaiser heads out to fight, Star Saber and Victory Leo unite once more into Victory Saber and before the Decepticon gestalt can even get that close to them he is hit with a massive shot from Victory Saber's two shoulder cannons. Deszaras sees this from inside and can't believe that Liokaiser got beaten so quickly, but he decides to end this.
He thinks that this is a shame to finish it so soon as he wanted to play with them a little longer, but he uses one of the fortress' bigger cannons to send out a long blast which hits Victory Saber and knocks him out into space. Deszaras tells him to realise the power he has and that the next thing to go will be the planet Earth itself. The narrator then steps in to ask what has happened to Victory Saber and will the Autobots be able to save the Earth from destruction?
Oh look, Galaxy Shuttle, who could have given Road Caesar a hand in the battle, gets told to return to Earth once he drops the Brainmasters off. I've said it before and I'll say it again, being an Autobot bus must really suck.
During the preview for the next episode, instead of Star Saber saying "Now you, together with us, let's say go!" he says "Now, stand united with us and protect the Earth!". I'm already standing.
