A PRIME PROBLEM


A crevasse opens in the Earth, and the Decepticons detect strange energies coming from beneath. A Decepticon Autoscout discovers raw Korlonium Crystals inside the crevasse. Korlonium Crystals overload and destroy mechanisms upon contact. Megatron plans to lure the Autobots into the crevasse, and to their doom.

The Autobots arrive and are attacked by the Decepticon Jets. Laserbeak incapacitates Optimus Prime and makes holograms of him. Megatron uses the holograms to create a mindless clone of Optimus, which he can control using a special helmet. Megatron replaces the real Optimus with the clone, while the real Optimus is unconscious. The Fake Optimus leads the Autobots back to the Volcano.

The Fake Optimus fails to access Teletran One and cannot remember anyone's names, and the Autobots become suspicious, Then the real Optimus arrives, and the Fake Optimus orders them to destroy the real Op.

Ironhide stops the Autobots and the two Optimuses (Optimi?) meet. Teletran One scans them both, but cannot tell which is the real one, for the are physically identical. The Autobots try a series of tests to prove which is the real Optimus, but those, also are inconclusive.

Megatron lures the Autobots back to the crevasse by fooling Teletran One into thinking that the Korlonium Crystals are going into critical mass. Megatron creates a clone of Starscream for the Fake Optimus to destroy, and gain the Autobots' trust, so that he can lead them to the deadly crystal.

Starscream panics and think that Megatron really seeks to have him destroyed. Laserbeak drags Starscream back into the base, but Windcharger and Spike spot them and infiltrate the temporary Decepticons base. They overhear Megatron's plans, but are discovered by Laserbeak. Spike is captured and Windcharger falls into the crevasse.

Starscream's clone challenges the fake Optimus to a duel, and the fake Optimus destroys him. The Autobots are convinced that the clone is the real Optimus and are prepared to follow him into the crevasse, when Windcharger rolls out of the cracks. Windcharger used his tires as insulators and warns that the Crystals are deadly and the Spike has been captured.

The fake Optimus disregards Spike's situation, and the Autobots figure out that he is the fake and force him into the crevasse. Megatron retreats and drops Spike from a high altitude, but Powerglide saves Spike.
