Optimus: This will help the war effort.
Robots: Starscream, we've got Optimus cornered.
Optimus: Thanks for the assist, Metroplex.
Metroplex: You are most welcome.
Optimus: As civil war spread like a storm of burning Energon across the surface of Cybertron, devouring in its path the great city of Iacon, even I was caught off-guard by the depth of Megatron's depravity. I should have anticipated his utter lack of feeling for his fellow Cybertronians, but at the expense of the lives of many thousands of my fellow Autobots, I did not.
Man 1: Hey, watch out!
Optimus: There. The last warp cannon. I'll need to get closer to mark it.
May all our rockets fly true!
We fight for our freedom!
Man 2: Come back here, you!
Man 3: We got Autobots on us!
Man 4: Enemy is on scope.
Man 2: More grenades!
Man 5: Optimus, the Marauder has us pinned down!
Optimus: We'll take him together! Follow me.
Robot voice: Decepticon deactivation commencing.
Man 5: Yeah!
Optimus, heads up! Dropship coming in.
Man 2: More grenades!
Man 3: You won't get away!
Man 4: You can't hide from us!
Optimus: The Autobots will triumph!
Man 2: I really hate grenades!
Man 4: You're not the sharpest tool in the workshop, are you?
Man 5: Autobots, open fire!
Man 6: Bridge is clear. Go get them, Optimus.
Optimus: A warp-, I must get closer to mark the target.
Metroplex, I've marked the final warp cannon. Finish it!
Metroplex: Yes, Prime.
Optimus: Metroplex, no!
Man 6: Optimus! The Ark's shields are down. It's about to get torn apart!
Optimus: Metroplex is down. I'll have to finish it myself.
Man 6: I'll send back up.
Optimus: There's no time.
Man 7: Optimus, we need . . .
Optimus: Ironhide. Ironhide.
Starscream: No, you don't! Lights out!
Man 8: Optimus, do you read me? If you read me, the Ark is going critical. You need to act fast.
Robot 1: We enjoy our nap?
Robot 2: Wrong. He's coming to.
Robot 1: Stay down!
Starscream: Megatron, look what I found.
Megatron: Optimus Prime. That is what they call you now, isn't it?
Starscream: Funny, isn't it, Megatron? How easily I defeated the one adversary you couldn't.
Optimus: It didn't have to come to this.
Megatron: This is what you chose, Prime, when you defied me. All of this is your doing.
Man 9: Optimus.
Optimus: Megatron, stop.
Megatron: I'll stop when all of you are dead.
Man 9: No. No! NO!
Optimus: This is needless. All we want is to leave.
Megatron: Charge up the warp cannon. Wipe their precious Ark off the face of Cybertron.
Man 10: Yes, sir!
Megatron: No one leaves without my permission.
Optimus: I wasn't asking.
Megatron: Always defiant to the end, aren't you, Prime? At every turn, you have thwarted my efforts to save this planet. To return it to its former glory. No more! This day, it all ends, Prime. Once and for all.
Robot 3: Megatron, look out!
Megatron: Stop running, you fool. Stand and fight.
Robot 4: Leave. Now.
Starscream: Decepticons, Megatron has perished. Betrayed by his foolish pride. I, Starscream, am your leader now. Decepticons, return to base.
Robot 5: Now that's a sight my optics have longed to see for some time.
Optimus: Enjoy the moment. It may have cost us our future.
Robot 5: No. You mean all the Energon we saved for the Ark is gone?
Optimus: There's barely enough to last a mega-cycle. We need to find more Energon and quickly. I have a hunch Grimlock may know where to start.
Robot 5: Grimlock? He deserted us.
Optimus: He left his post for a reason. I want to know why. Jazz and Cliffjumper are tracking him now.
