After the Decepticons learn of a human agreeing to leading the Autobots to a fuel source, they set out from the base in the Harrison Nuclear Plant to seize the human. A fight ensues, which the local police try to get involved in and find their weapons are useless against the robots. Megatron snags Sparkplug and briefly fights with Optimus. Sparkplug is momentarily freed, only to get captured and taken away by Starscream. The fight leaves the Autobots in desperate need of recharging.
