Story[edit]

Issue 1: "Prime's Directive, Part One"[edit]

Stardate 5892.7. USS Enterprise receives a distress call from Cygnus Seven, a remote dilithium mine near the Klingon border. Unable to contact the planet, Captain Kirk leads Spock, Sulu and M'Ress to the surface, finding the colony under attack by 20th century Earth vehicles without pilots. They attempt to defend against the assault, when a large truck appears, shielding them from the blasts. Mistakenly believing the truck is an attacker, Kirk fires his phaser, damaging it. The truck transforms into Optimus Prime, asking Kirk to protect the humans before collapsing.

The other vehicles reveal themselves as Decepticons and prepare to eliminate the away team. Soundwave's sonic weaponry inadvertently disrupts the static interference blocking communication with the Enterprise, allowing Kirk to order a photon torpedo strike on the Decepticons and forcing them to retreat. The Decepticons follow a homing signal to a nearby moon, where they find Trypticon's fortress mode being controlled by Klingons led by Commander Kuri. Discovering their shared hatred of humans, Megatron proposes an alliance with the Klingons.

Interested on learning more from the unconscious Prime, Kirk calls Scotty and McCoy to the surface to revive him. Spock detects similar energy to Prime's within the nearby mine, and Kirk leads a team to investigate, finding a large metal wall bearing the Autobot insignia. The wall bursts open, revealing more Autobots, and Jazz demands to know what has happened to Optimus Prime.[4]
