Transformers Binaltech Translated Story

Chaper 1, 2, 3, 4, 16 to 19 translated by Jeremy Barlow, Soundwave's Oblivion. The other Binaltech Stories courtesy of; Torsten B. Abel; & Robotochan (TFW2005 poster)


In the year 2003, the Cybertrons are slowly being destroyed by a powerful
corrosive rust set upon them by the evil Destrons. With Megatron and his
troops advancing and the humans increasingly in danger, a final, desperate
project is put into action - human created Transformers. Thus, the newest
Transformers are created through new technology: Binaltech!

Chapter 1 (Comes with Smokescreen & Lambor)

What is Binaltech…
The year is 2003, a little more than a decade has passed since Transformers and humankind made contact. After which the world has been through many changes, construction of Cybertron City, formation of the EDC (Earth Defence Corps) and space travel. Both mankind and the Cybertrons now have an irreplaceable shared destiny. With the Destrons use of the metal pathogen, “Cosmic Rust”, many of the Cybertron Earth Defence Corps members suffered irreparable damage. Meanwhile, Megatron’s war for conquest on Planet Seibertron was about to begin and most of the Cybertrons and their supplies had just left Earth. Cut off from support, the EDC initiated the “Transformer Development Plan”, aka the Binaltech Project which had been in the works for some time. Under the coordination of the mother computer, Teletraan, the world's leading industries and research facilities began to pour their resources to develop a humanoid transformable machine at a rapid pace. The personality chips of the injured Cybertrons were transplanted into the completed robot bodies made on Earth and were reborn as new artificial machine lifeforms. The Binaltech Transformers, warriors of hope for both humanity and the Cybertrons, were born.

Chapter 2
(Comes with Streak, Hound & Tracks)
Binaltech is…
Almost 20 years have passed since the first contact between Transformers and humans, and situations around the world have changed tremendously. Humans and Cybertrons have now formed an invaluable community bound by a common destiny. Through a mutual fusion of their technologies, they have revived a new generation of warriors, Binaltech Transformers, and successfully achieved phenomenal military results against the threat of the Destrons, who are stronger than ever before. At the same time, Megatron has finally launched a war of conquest on Seibertron, where the Destrons have held superiority for some time, in order to wipe out all Cybertron resistance forces. As the renowned warriors of the Cybertron forces rush out into violent combat, the Earth, their vital source of energy, is exposed to even greater menace as a target of capture for their enemies. Thus the fate of Earth and the Cybertrons is entrusted into the hands of the Binaltech Transformers, their warriors of hope!

Chapter 3
(Comes with Deadend)
Arise! Evil Binaltech’s
It had once seemed that the Destrons had been wiped out of the solar system thanks to the combined efforts of the EDC and the Cybertron Warriors. However, although defeated, they spread out and hid away in temporary bases across various planets quietly waiting for their chance to strike back.
Meanwhile on Earth, the evil scientist, Doctor Arkeville and other dangerous members of humanity formed a secret organisation with the goal to dismantle the alliance between the EDC and the Cybertrons. Their first step was to cause the collapse of the Binaltech Project, the symbol of the Alliance. Starscream, the Destron Earth Attack Commander was the first to detect this secret organisation and approached his former collaborator, Arkeville, to form a temporary alliance as they shared a similar goal. Thus another alliance was formed, filled with mistrust and malice. Combining Arkeville’s “Hypnochip”, a hypnosis device, and Bombshell’s “Cerebroshell”, they were able to create advanced brainwashing technology. The Evil Alliance stealthily took control over several industrial cities and scientific institutes as well as turning several EDC members into spies. The aim was to revive the wounded Destrons Warriors by using the Binaltech Project itself! And now people completely unaware that they are under enemy control have led to the creation of fearsome villains. The Binaltech Project, once the hope for mankind, is facing its toughest crisis!

Chapter 4
(Comes with Smokescreen GT)
Activate the GT units!
The Binaltech Transformers constitute a group of revived Cybertron warriors, resurrected by the humans on Earth, bestowed with the advanced technology of Planet Seibertron. The sudden appearance of evil Binaltech warriors startled the Earth-Cybertron alliance, casting a shadow of ongoing concerns and uncertainties. Even as the production of Binaltech bodies was steadily on the rise in preparation for a significant enemy counteroffensive, a critical shortage persisted in the essential control systems needed to operate them - specifically, the number of robot lifeform sparks. In contrast to regular data files, which can be duplicated endlessly if necessary, Transformer personality programs function exclusively based on their unique energy signature or "life force." Consequently, duplicating their personality files does not enable their execution. Nevertheless, Chip Chase, a prominent Transformer researcher and long-time friend of the Cybertrons, devised a daring solution. It was an astounding new technology that leveraged the Cybertrons' subspace communication technology to deliver life force’s to cloned personality programs seamlessly across time and space. Through this so-called “GT (Genetronic Translink) system,” new alter-ego Transformers were brought into existence, possessing identical minds, memories, and righteous sparks. The Binaltech project has ventured into unexplored realms!

Chapter 5
(Comes with Meister)
Operation Car Wash:
The Binaltech transformers are a group of new Cybertron soldiers revived by the humans entrusted with Seibertron's technology. The Binaltech project, a symbol of the Earth / Cybertron alliance, rendered shock to the allies involved in reviving the Destron soldiers. With this event, an innocent team member was suspected. Fearing a rift in the project, the allies concealed the news with extensive movement, and prepared an emergency launch to find the truth, and breach in the Binaltech project by the Destrons: operation Car Wash. With this, the expert team led by Dr. Fairborn executes the secret investigation. Likewise, the Cybertrons also send out their top agents for investigation and resolution.

Chapter 6
(Comes with Swindle)
“True faces of evil revealed.”
<From agent Fairborn's transmission>
Based on our investigation so far on the incident behind Destron warriors reformatting using Binaltech technology, we have uncovered that it is linked to a secret organisation who call themselves the “concurrence”. The objective of this organisation is to destroy the alliance of humans and Cybertrons, made up of various criminal groups believed to have united through social clubs. Heading  the group are 2 notorious terrorist leaders, Baron von Raney and general Krieger, and were financially backed by the vengeful lord Chumleigh and Shawn Berger jr; who claimed their life was destroyed by the transformers. While it seems foolish that this group of people with stature would team themselves with the Destrons, it seems that someday they intend to get rid of all transformers, their ultimate agenda would be to turn the solar-system into robot prohibit resort area. It has been confirmed that none of the Binaltech project members are in the concurrence group. This is why brainwashing techniques were used to control some of the Binaltech project members, making them victims in this incident. We must contact Ultra Magnus of Cybertron City immediately and inform him about this. He must locate and find a way to neutralise the brainwashing device as soon as possible. My transmission will end here, they will be breaking through the door soon… please tell my family that I will be spending a bit more time on moon colony for now…

Chapter 7
(Comes with Grimlock)
“Beast in the Machine.”
On Seibertron, far from Earth, in an attempt to defeat Megatron and his war, a drastic battle took place with the main Cybertron army led by Convoy. Though the war continued to sway, the balance was broken by a fatal blow by the Destron army. It was a psychic attack using a primitive telepathic alien life-form called the “Unleashers”. Due to this, the Dinobots – the leading military strength in the Cybertron army – lost control, one after the other, turning into savage beasts and caused the allied troops to suffer heavy losses. To put an end to this catastrophe, though a reluctant solution, they had to destroy the raging Dinobots with their own weapons. Afterwards, Grimlock alone recovered consciousness, and from his diagnostic results, the unknown psychic action was discovered to make the subroutine programs, f their natural and primal instincts of their dinosaur modes, go out of control. The removal process of the telepathic imprint was a difficult procedure, and with the increased lack of supplies from prioritised recovery operations, the Dinobots recovery seemed hopeless. However, the technician Wheeljack, noticing how the other Cybertrons were unaffected by the psychic imprinting, reported a backup plan to revive Grimlock through Earth’s Binaltech project, until a definite cure was found. Carrying Grimlock's brain core, Wheeljack rushed straight to Earth.

Chapter 8
(Comes with Ravage)
“Ghosts from the past.”
With the arrival of the Transformers, numerous artefacts of Seibertronian origin were being discovered throughout the world. These artefacts were gathered by a secret intelligence agency, the “III” (Triple I), formed in the late 20th Century America. Among these artefacts, an item in the form of a capsule of unknown elements was dubbed the “Schrödinger’s Box.” Even after the agency was disbanded, some former Triple I staff members continued to secretly store these artefacts. Acquiring the advanced analysis equipment provided by the latest Transformer technology, they were able to find out that the box was actually a flight recorder from a Seibertronian spacecraft that stemmed from centuries into the future. Discovering that the device contained the memory records of the pilot who they were surprised to learn was the future version of one of their notorious enemies, the Destron Jaguar. They successfully made contact with “Central Conscious file X-9”, they were able to communicate with it. In exchange for technology and knowledge of the future, they made an agreement with X-9 to provide him with a new body. By setting up a fake Binaltech project, X-9 became the new Binaltech warrior, “Ravage”. But as Ravage discovered that the present had not changed at all, he realised that his attempt to alter the future, set out in the prehistoric battle known as The Beast Wars, had failed. Therefore he went back on his agreement, erasing all evidence and records of his rebirth, including the people involved. Not wanting to see the Destrons being defeated once more, Ravage now embarks on a mission to change history.

Chapter 9
(Comes with Overdrive)
“Reality Check.”
Receiving reports that the main Cybertron military force on Seibertron were struggling against the odds, the Earth military, led by Ultra Magnus, pulled through the Destron attacks many times, and continued sending Cybertron City’s energy reserves to the planet. After a certain period though, a number of the strategies planned by Overdrive, for the defence systems, were broken through by recurrent unnatural accidents. Coincidently, this led to a major incident when a transportation shuttle preparing to send energy reserves to Cybertron City, suddenly exploded. This was all a series of history-altering experiments carried out by Destron soldier Ravage, secretly behind the scenes in order to change the future. Needless to say, this had gone unnoticed by everyone. However, having the experience using the quantum dial and travelling through parallel worlds, Overdrive sensed a reality fluctuation at the time of one of the shuttle disasters, one similar to that felt during dimensional travel. This was indeed proof that someone out of their timeframe had twisted the history to be. Overdrive immediately explained the possibility of a “Time Attack” to the allied forces and urged them to be on full alert. If this were so, how could they possibly fight this threat that held such an absolute advantage?

Chapter 10 (Comes with Laserwave)
“Changing Lanes.”
Despite the Alliances desperate investigations, Ravage continued to set his plans to alter history in motion. However, the steps he took in order to initiate his plan were incomprehensible to anyone else. Hijacking Wheeljack’s shuttle which was temporarily returning to base, Ravage landed on the devastated Destron territory, in search of the remnants of the ‘Chronosphere’, a time machine once developed by Laserwave.
Shortly afterwards, determined to deliver the final blow to the Cybertrons who were on the verge of defeat, Megatron commanded his fleet of mobile fortresses to commence the assault. Realising they could not hold their ground on Seibertron any longer, Convoy reached a decision and was about to order his forces to retreat to their moon bases. Just at that moment, the approaching armada of warships was suddenly surrounded by a large sphere of light and then disappeared without a trace. Ravage had managed to repair the Chronosphere and now used it on Megatron and his main assault force, transporting them into a rift in the space-time continuum, and sealing them there. Their leader and half their forces gone, the remaining Destrons were unable to hold back the Cybertrons counterattack and thus were quickly defeated. This outcome of the final battle of the year 2005 wad different from the original course in history and ended with the defeat of the Destrons. As Ravage activated the time machines automated homing device, he uttered, “For the future of all Destrons. In time, a great darkness shall come, and there is no one who can stop it. Might as well let the Cybertrons face it alone, and when everyone has been weakened by the disastrous battle, Megatron shall return again!”

Chapter 11
(Comes with Wheeljack)
“Project: Body Shop”
In the year 2005, with the victory of the Cybertrons, their home planet had finally been freed from the clutches of the Destrons. However, a disgruntled Wheeljack ignored his comrades’ celebrations, as he knew their sudden victory was the work of an enemy from the future.
Right before the end of the war, when Ravage had hijacked Wheeljack’s shuttle, he unveiled his plan to Wheeljack and even showed him images of the future from his memory. There inside the attacked shuttle, he saw the discarded bodies of Brawn and Prowl, as well as the dead bodies of Windcharger and himself in a corner of Cybertron City.
“If I change this future, then at least some will be saved. But you will be terminated one step earlier here.” Barely escaping, Wheeljack was rescued by allied forces and subsequently witnessed the sudden change of history. The flow of time has changed indefinitely for now; however, is there a guarantee that they did indeed escape their deadly fate? If this reality is that of the one twisted by evil, then what waits beyond this victory is a dreadful trap. It must be returned to its proper flow before its too late – but that would also mean bringing tragedy for his beloved comrades. Burdened by a heavy dilemma, Wheeljack pondered:
“There must be a way to cheat death.” He immediately contacted Chip Chase on Earth.

Chapter 12
(Comes with Prowl)
“Prowl & Chase”
While investigation for remaining Destrons continued in various regions of the universe, on Earth, the production of the duplicate shells were progressing; likewise, the transplantation of each Cybertron personality data was nearing a finish under Project Body Shop. Meanwhile, an emergency comm. Link was received from Prowl who was investigating Destron activity near the rings of Saturn, stating a situation of heavy enemy pursuits. ‘His fate scenario has begun,’ sensed Wheeljack. Though reluctant due to the long distance, he decided to activate the GT system, successfully transferring Prowl’s life core into subspace, the very moment enemy forces led by Laserwave breached the space ships hull, attacking Prowl. But just when they thought it was safe, due to the unstable nature of the subspace link, the connection was suddenly severed and Prowl’s separated core unit signal was lost. Wheeljack was overcome with loss. The next day, Chip Chase thought back in front of the BT unit once meant for Prowl. “Twenty years ago, we met up through your online communication. Your battle computer was damaged, and I substituted…” Suddenly, something flashed across Chips mind. “Your knowledge and your personality are already installed in this unit. If that’s the case…” Calling Wheeljack and Ratchet, he said, “I believe that someday he will come back, but right now, the world needs Prowl’s capabilities. Therefore, let us light this unit with the spark of life. Please initiate preparation for mind transfer.”

Chapter 13
(Comes with Skids)
“Darkest Hour”
Thanks to the lightening strike operation conducted by Prowl and Overdrive, the mastermind behind the history alterations, Ravage, was captured at long last. But inside his secret base, Ravage told them, “Unfortunately, even though I would like to congratulate you, your efforts are to no avail. Look!” Shown on the monitor was an enormous celestial body moving towards Seibertron. “That is Unicron! The planet eater and Chaos Bringer!” Those words marked the beginning of a nightmare. Seibertron’s defence fleets were destroyed within an instant, and the Moonbase served as food for the monster planet. Right after that, countless robot soldiers who appeared to be under Unicrons command swarmed in, and many warriors sacrificed their lives trying to defend their headquarters. “So far, so good.” Ravage said. “But do not let Convoy die. The only chance to stop Unicron lies within the Matrix which your commander carries.” Convoy, now realising the true intention behind Ravage’s sinister scheme, reached a decision, and together with Ultra Magnus, he boarded a shuttle, heading towards Unicron. “Even though this future might be hopeless, we still have duties to attend. Order Skids on Earth to initiate “Operation Distant Thunder!” Operation Distant Thunder is a last resort to counter the enemy’s alterations of space and time by sending back Wheeljack’s memory data to a point in time before history was altered, in an attempt to warn their earlier selves. This last resort can only be put into effect at a specific location on Earth, namely Dinobot Island, where a time-warp had been created at a time when energy was losing its balance there. After many years of research, Skids had managed to find a way to control the warp to some degree. Fully aware that what he is about to do is going to intervene with the flow of time, Skids keeps telling himself, “This is all for restoring it back to how it was supposed to be.” If everything goes well, the Body Shop Project could even help erase all the tragedies that happened in the “Original History.” As he operates the energy converter installed on the remote island, trying to recreate the warp, Skids’ sensor suddenly alerted him of a squadron of Destrons approaching his position at a rapid pace. Will he be able to carry out Operation Distant Thunder in time?

Chapter 14
(Comes with Black Convoy)
"Binal Time"
"I am not the chosen one..." said Ultra Magnus as he cast off his outer shell, revealing the white armour inside. Looking at the Matrix in his hand, given to him by Convoy who had been damaged during their assault within Unicron and had to be left behind on the battle lines. "But you didn't have a choice either. So either you have the power manifest now, or we will be destroyed together. You have to decide here and now!" Right after that, a blinding light appeared from within Unicron's body, destroying him as his anguish cries shook the universe. "Its not over yet" felt Prowl as he witnessed the destruction of the giant planet eater. Not when Laserwave, who couldn't be located anywhere at this point, still held the key to releasing Megatron and his main force from the space-time rift. "If Skids' operation failed, we won't be able to escape destruction the next time." Initiating a recall on all remaining Cybertrons, Prowl prepared a full retreat from Seibertron.
Meanwhile on Earth in order to repair the warped history caused by Ravage, "Operation Distant Thunder" continued to be executed. After Skids and Earth's tactical team had narrowly managed to fight back the enemy's attack and opened the time warp gateway, they launched the drone containing a warning message and data into the past. If all went as planned, they would be experiencing instant changes as their reality was being rewritten. However, everything around them remained the same. At the same time, countless warp holes began to appear everywhere on Earth and continued to expand out of control! "It was impossible after all! Instead of repairing it, we are destroying history!" Just then a robot appeared in front of them out of nowhere. The robots silhouette, which resembles Convoy began to extend his hands. A huge light orb, with Dinobot Island at its centre, began to form and expanded until it engulfed the entire planet. When the furious shockwave subsided, all the warps had been destroyed.
As soon as Skids had come back to his senses, he cautiously approached the black 'Convoy2, and stopped in front of him, "Did you stop the out of control warps for us? If so, thanks for that...even though the operation failed, at least Earth is saved."
"It didn't fail." answered the black Convoy. "The warning was received, necessary preventative actions have been taken and all of you have saved one history."
Everyone looked perplexed at his comments. If the operation was successful, how come everything in this reality remained unchanged? "And this world will continue to exist using the power which resides within me." Using the space-time energy from the time warp, the "original history" and this world have been completely separated. "Both realities can now coexist independently." Shocked by his words, Skids and the others were thrown into a commotion. Their entire struggle to prevent their fate of destruction had been futile and meaningless.
The team escorted the black Convoy back to EDA's Antarctic base. Joined by Convoy's retreating forces which had arrived on Earth, they began a thorough investigation and interrogation of black Convoy. Despite occasionally showing his displeasure, black Convoy answered all the questions without hesitation. "Within me resides a 'Spark' that comes from the future." A Spark is the soul of a Transformer. "It is on a mission. It has been provided with the necessary power and sent here. The one who sent it will be known as 'The Protector' for now."
Based on what it had said, they now believed that the world they belonged to was apparently a very important timeline, which could give birth to certain great beings in the far future. Those beings would bear the role of protecting and ensuring prosperity in multi-dimensional galaxies. "Therefore, it is imperative this reality continues to exist."
"This is ridiculous!" shouted Sunstreaker, "You are saying this world exists only because of someone or something that hasn't even been born yet? What about us?"
"To survive and be strong even in time of storm! This is the Protector's wish. The great existence, the 'Alternity', whose origin you Binaltech's will become apart of."
At the shocked silence of everyone, Convoy rose and approached the black Convoy. Coming face to face with his smaller clone, Convoy said: "We understand what the Protector is trying to achieve, now let's hear something about yourself."
"There is nothing to say. I have learnt all I need to know. I've had enough of being controlled by this Spark, which is as if its made of righteousness itself." As his tone turned vicious, a Destron insignia began to form on his shoulder. Using the remaining power of the Protector, he created a teleportation portal. "When I have obtained evil life worthy of me, we shall meet again." With that, he jumped into the portal. Black Convoy escaped right in front of everyone and was teleported somewhere unknown on Earth.

After that, Overdrive confirmed the restoration of the 'original history' in his cross dimensional investigation. As he reported his findings to Convoy, he hesitantly revealed to Convoy, "Uhmm...Convoy, in that reality, you dies in battle." While there were many differences, the strangest among them was the next leader that came after Convoy. "It's still unbelievable, the new leader is Rodimus Convoy! You! Hot Rodimus!" Everyone present couldn't believe their audio receptors, some even gasped in horror. Not entirely displeased with this, Hot Rodimus made eye contact with Ultra Magnus. Ultra Magnus who still possessed the Matrix, safely keeping it within his storage chamber, plainly told Hot Rodimus, "Don't get any ideas kid!"
Just then, Meister reported that numerous mobile fortresses had been detected appearing on Seibertron. Knowing that this could mean Megatron had returned from the rift in time, Meister said, "Looks like those killjoys are kinda spaced out for now, but it won't be long and they're knock-knock-knockin' on our door again!"
No one could say for sure at this point which reality was preferable. Looking at the preserving crystal containing the Protector, Convoy said to everyone, "Will the 'Alternity' become the light of our future? Lets hope so, but no matter how bright the future can be, without our work and efforts today, they will not be realised. Therefore bear this in mind when you go into battle." Motivated by his words, the Cybertrons split up and went on with their duties. "Lets forget for a while about something that is going to happen in the far future. If nothing else, we need to reinforce the support for the Binaltech's ensuring and supporting their advancement. After all, it was because of them that we have this world."

Meanwhile in Dr Arkeville's secret lab, another subspace translink experiment was being initiated. "Despite this strange interruption, I've finally been able to establish a connection with a life force worthy of you. A life so ancient, so evil and with such greed! No one on this world would be able to stop you anymore. Awake, Black Convoy!"

Chapter 15
(Comes with Rijie Electro-Disruptor ver.)
At the end of the history-rewriting battle, “the world in which Binaltech’s would play crucial roles in deciding the direction of the future” had been created. But in that timeline, Megatron gained total control of Planet Seibertron and reigned violently, while on Earth, the newly created evil Black Convoy was scheming behind the scenes. It was a very difficult and turbulent time for the Cybertrons. “Alternity”, which was said to appear in the far future – the superior form of advanced Binaltech’s, and Cybertrons wagered their hope on it, much to Commander Convoy’s concern. There was no guarantee that this news from the future would save them at the present…but even they needed some hope. He himself thought they needed help from the future, even though he was reluctant to do so, in order to break through the presently difficult situation. Convoy summoned Prowl and the others in the tactics squad and told them that he figured out one method of counter attack based on Ravage’s memory of the future.
Ravage was responsible for the situation, ha destroyed all the important data before being captured and interrogated by the Cybertrons. Even though the direction of history had changed, his knowledge of the future was still valid, and Cybertron scientists tried their best to repair his data. As a result, they successfully recovered some valuable data, and Commander Convoy was to decide how to handle it.
As Megatron’s besiegement of the solar system closed in, Rijie concealed himself in an enemy supply ship and took full advantage of his improved Electro Disruptor to openly disembark from the ships cargo bay. He had no time to fully appreciate the fact that he was at last on his homeland, and headed to the designated spot “Co-ordinates Omega-Zero One”. In there rested the trump which would get his comrades and Earth out of this tight situation, possibly even end all battles.
Standing by in the space 0.5 light years away was a camouflaged ship with Tracks, four Smokescreen GT’s and a human crew on board. Their task was to provide a diversion in case Rjie’s cover was blown. What awaited Rijie at the co-ordinates was a piece of unknown mechanical equipment which had been hidden deep beneath Seibertron since ancient times. Ravage’s information stated that when a glowing lever inside the chamber was pulled down, all Transformers across the galaxy would cease to function. The reason why such a formidable device, which was said to have influence across time and space, existed could not be divulged from the incompletely repaired data.
”If he goes ahead and activates the machine, the Cybertrons will be incapacitated as well, right?” Are you willing to do that?” a human crewmember asked them. “The most important task is to stop the war. We’ll leave the matters to you guys after that”, one of the Smokescreens, “Smokey 7”, answered, “Well hopefully, after getting rid of Megatron and his minions, you can wake us up”, “Smokey 2” cheerfully chimed in.
Just when Megatron launched his attack on the EDC Mars base, a dark shadow interrupted two forces exchanging fires. EDC member Marissa Faireborn saw Black Convoy blocking Megatron’s path. “I will not allow you to disturb my yard!” “How dare a mere Earth made machine mimicking Convoy’s face wear a Destron insignia! You are a pathetic joke! I will crush you with my…!”
Rijie reached the co-ordinates and avoided a trap set by Ravage. Then he was finally standing in front of the instant freezing machine. “That indecision will be the bane of their existence.” Rijie put his hand on the lever which was giving out a strange noise, and stared at the mysterious light. “This will make the universe quieter than ever.” He pulled the lever down forcefully.
Straight away, the machine’s invisible force spread across the galaxy, as on Planet Seibertron and in each region of space, Transformers had stopped functioning all at once. On Mars, Megatron was also frozen stiff in his combative stance.
Humans on the camouflaged ship were monitoring the effect of the freezing machine, but at the same time they noticed one abnormality. Tracks and the others were still moving. “This is Rijie…the operation was apparently a success. All the enemies on land seem to have been incapacitated…but I don’t understand. I heard the machine would dysfunction all Transformers, but it had no affect on me. Looks like it was a case of overblown advertising!” Having assessed the situation, Prowl soon realised what the abnormality actually was. “Only Binaltech’s are functioning!” It was in fact  the GT System’s Translink mechanism which separated the life-core in sub-space, that acted as a filter to block the effect of the freezing machine. Since Project Bodyshop had come in use, most of the Cybertron warriors had been equipped with Translink-nodes, resulting in minimal damage to their side. They had been expecting the worst scenario that they might fall with the enemy when they decided on that last resort, but it unexpectedly brought them a victory in a seemingly no-win battle.
”How ironic it is that Binaltech’s saved me.” Black Convoy pushed Megatron, who was frozen right in front of him, aside and called the sole survivor Laserwave, “Transport as many Destrons as possible before the humans take them away. Hurry!” Laserwave hesitated momentarily, but he saw the logic and summoned rescue ships and worker drones straight away.
As Black Convoy observed the humans abandoning their Mars base, he thought “If Binaltech’s are to bring on great power eventually, I would like to see it. For that, I may have to allow the continuation of the Earth civilisation. Though it is nothing to give some more time to a mere planet system before its complete destruction. The whole galaxy will soon be mine anyway.”
He calmly went aboard the Destron ship and seated himself deeply onto Megatron’s throne.

Chapter 16 (comes with Bluestreak)
BINALTECH STORY “Unfinished Business" Part 1.
Three cars speed towards Cybertron City. They were Grimlock, Hound and Bluestreak.

“Hurry up Grimlock but be careful!”

“Me Grimlock, quit nagging blue-butt.”

Suddenly they heard roars and screams from the residential area on their right. Something, as big as an elephant but transparent, was running amok, knocking into trees and cars.

“An acoustic quantum hologram” sighed Hound. “Another amateur inventor has been rather foolish with Binaltech technology.” Since the end of the Earth Defence Corps led Binaltech project had ended, information regarding the technology was made public and there have been no end of incidents involving Binaltech. Bluestreak and his team jumped on the scene in robot mode and neutralised the hologram projectors with their ion rifles. After settling the commotion, they went on their way.

“This body is invigorating. Hats off to you guys for advancing Binaltech technology.” said Bluestreak in good spirits. “In our world the Binaltech project was abandoned before the Unicron War broke out."

Grimlock was lost for words. Hound paused a second wondering how he could convince Grimlock that Bluestreak was actually an emissary from another world, the so-called official world. Bluestreak went straight to Ultra Magnus and got down to business without reporting his code word.

“I’ve heard that the life core of Prowl from this world was lost to subspace after an incident several years ago.”
The Prowl who stood beside him nodded.

“Since the incident you have kept Prowl's body on life support by transplanting the “consciousness” of human genius, Chip Chase. Well, his life core was located in my world.” Everyone in the room began to cheer but Ultra Magnus calmed them.

“Let’s hear what the expert has to say on this matter. Prowl, switch to Chip.”

The exterior of the police car digitised and changed to the blue chase mode awakening the dormant consciousness of Chip Chase.

“That’s quite probable. The official world and our Binaltech World have very similar dimensional frequencies. It’s no wonder the subspace bands we’re dealing with are getting mixed up with one another.”

“The problem is that the life core is in a very dangerous state.” said Bluestreak in a serious tone. “Two days ago a powerful energy surge was sent from this world which caused the core to severely overload.” The core is now in a linked state, frozen in a defensive mode and no one can do anything with it."

“We must find the cause and rescue the core as soon as possible or a great warrior will be lost forever.”

Suppressing his impatience, Prowl followed his comrades.

Chapter 17 (comes with Argent Meister)
BINALTECH STORY “Unfinished Business Part 2.”
Argent Meister rallied his troops for an assault at a location pinpointed through Bluestreak's energy data. This target was a research facility suspected to serve as the headquarters for "The Concurrence," a human criminal organisation. Inside, a sinister plot unfolded, posing a grave threat to the life of their fellow Cybertron Warrior, Prowl. They charged towards a colossal subterranean hangar, coming face to face with a massive golden "giant," believed to be the handiwork of their adversary. Amidst the chaos of fleeing human workers, they spotted a familiar robotic silhouette at the feet of the giant - none other than the Destron soldier, Swindle.

"This colossal entity is a liquid-like robot crafted entirely from synthetic Electrum!" cried Wheeljack. Beneath its smooth exterior ran a complex neural net framework and subspace translink nodes. "They're syphoning Prowl's lifecore energy and channelling it into this abomination!"

The enemy's objective seemed to revolve around harnessing Binaltech technology for the creation of super lifeforms. Unfortunately, the backflow of energy from the Electrum had taken a toll on the giant's core, pushing it to its breaking point. With a deafening roar, the colossal construct launched a savage assault. Despite being synthetic, the Electrum effortlessly repelled all attacks, and a single strike from the giant's arm tore through the thick inner wall of the hangar.

"Artificial Electrum appears to be quite the hot research topic. I've got the results of our own experiments right here... Let's see which is better! Meister enveloped his entire form in "Argent" armour, his body ablaze with energy as he surged forward in a radiant silver aura. A monumental clash of energies reverberated through the subterranean chamber. In the next instant, the giant crumpled to its knees. Meister then applied Argent coating to Grimlock's sword and plunged it into the giant's back, extracting its translink node. "Bluestreak, let loose on this monstrosity!"

Upon exiting the now-conquered facility, Meister and his companions received a transmission from Overdrive in the "official world." The news was grim; Prowl's core unit had sustained severe damage, rendering it impossible to transport across dimensions. The sole lifeline was to dispatch a Binaltech body from their world and conduct intricate regeneration surgery on-site. With Prowl temporarily on life support, Chip Chase's consciousness was transferred back into his own body. From his hospital bed, he watched as Prowl's form was carefully carried away on a monitor. Nevertheless, there was hope for a complete recovery now.

“It was the humans who created that monster.” sneered the captive Swindle. "Old Arkeville stumbled upon that core by sheer luck. I merely offered some advice." Despite the Destrons keeping a low profile, they maintained constant communication with the nefarious organisation, pushing the boundaries with their experiments in Binaltech development. The situation was dire, leaving no room for a moment's respite. Meister nonchalantly shrugged his shoulders, briefly contemplating who he should gift his concert tickets to for tomorrow's show.

Chapter 18 (comes with Arcee)
BINALTECH STORY “Unfinished Business Part 3.”
Two experiments were about to take place in the Binaltech research facility in Cybertron City that day. One was a demonstration of the "Timaeus Project", an experiment involving hyperspace control theory. The other was to give a Binaltech body to “The Protector”, a messenger from the future, and activate it as a robotic lifeform.

Arcee, who had already been converted into a Binaltech body for the experiment ahead of the others, touched the Protector's containment vessel and said, "Now I can finally talk with you." The Protector's spark started pulsing vigorously and began to shake. Arcee was a little concerned as she hurried to her laboratory.

Arcee's role in the Timaeus experiment was to wear a device near her brain that would awaken her consciousness and to drive at super-speed around a circular track lined with an acceleration field. She had no idea of the significance of this strange experiment, but Perceptor praised it as a groundbreaking method of hyperspace generation.

As Arcee maintained her speed of 715 km/h, she focused her thoughts and consciousness on the centre of the ring that she was driving through. Suddenly there was a flash and bang and a black mass appeared in the air.

Emergency sirens sounded throughout the entire city. The alarm announced that Hanger 5, the Protectors experimental area, had been sabotaged. The controlled Binaltech bodies "Autosoldiers", which were supposed to house the Protectors, along with other similar machines had mutinied. This was Laserwave’s plan to capture the Protector by using an unknown link technology to remote control the empty Binaltech bodies.

Arcee headed to the rescue, but slowing down meant she would have to waste 10 minutes. Determined she raced off the track crashing into the inertial damper area on the side of the track. Her pure white car body was crushed by kinetic energy and she lost consciousness.

When Arcee came to, she found herself in a jet-black void. A soft glowing figure stood before her. She could see no details other than the outline of a muscular body, but somehow she knew who this was. “Protector?” The figure nodded. “I’m here to help you!” Arcee held out her hand but he shook his head. “The Timaeus Project is key to the creation of “Alternity”. Protect the researchers and the results of the experiment.”

Arcee came back online. At the moment of the collision her life core was automatically transferred to a spare S2000 body and reactivated. The entire process only took 38 seconds. She did not head to Hanger 5 and instead rushed to the laboratory knocking down several rampaging Auto-Soldiers with a barrage of fire and saved the humans from falling debris.

“The enemy has evaded the guards and the Spark has been taken.” one of the researchers said dejectedly.
“But the good news is that both you and the Spark are safe” Arcee replied, staring at the shiny metallic sphere floating in the centre of the track.
“That's worth something isn’t it?”

Chapter 19 (comes with Convoy)

Binaltech Story “Unfinished Business” Part 4
The enigmatic substance stemming from the Timaeus Project was christened "Alternium." Though its outward appearance resembled that of a car door mirror, extensive research revealed a more profound truth – Alternium was an element hailing from a higher dimension, its actual magnitude far surpassing its visible form, with only a fraction seeping into our world. According to Arcee, this elusive substance held the key to birthing a super-entity known as "Alternity," a prospect set to unfold in the distant future.

Even with a wealth of data at our disposal, our comprehension of controlling or harnessing this enigma remained in obscurity. Commander Convoy urged patience in our quest for answers, emphasising, "The path ahead is clear. It's time to put an end to the Binaltech rivalry sweeping the globe."

Stepping forward, Wheeljack declared, "Then the moment has arrived to utilise my Omega Unit!"

On the border of an Australian city, Black Convoy initiated a machine intricately woven into the urban landscape. "Initiate Mind Transfer," this device was capable of separating the human psyche from its corporeal shell and storing it within a crystal reactor, with the aim of constructing an artificial Matrix. With a steely resolve, he vowed, "If this experiment succeeds, the Cybertrons will be next." His eyes locked onto the Protectors' enclosure beside him. However, just as the separation sequence commenced, the device inexplicably halted. The Destrons sensed something awry and realised they were encircled by Cybertrons, led by Ultra Magnus. He sternly rebuked, "This deceitful scheme will not prevail!"

The Omega Unit, in essence, was Earth itself. Wheeljack had bound his life force to the planet's intricate network of power grids, forming a singular living entity. Utilising his profound cognitive abilities, he unearthed and thwarted all the malevolent Binaltech research infecting the planet. Across the globe, EDC forces, under Prowl's guidance, conducted their own raids.

"I'll settle this with Black Convoy once and for all.” Convoy declared in the midst of chaos. “You challenge me using my own form? My current power pales in comparison to what it once was!" Black Convoy activated his spectral armour, launching a pre-emptive assault on Convoy. The clash led to Convoy crashing into a mechanical apparatus and landing by the river's edge.

In that crucial moment, the Protector, saved by Arcee, soared through the air and merged with Convoy upon landing, fusing with his laser core. Convoy felt an eerie sense of familiarity. "This fusion of Sparks... it feels like I've experienced it in the distant past. You saved me then as well." The immense power emanating from the fusion spark enveloped Convoy like an aura, allowing him to rise. "The seeds of the future are already within our grasp. Binaltech will never grant you greater power." With both arms, he absorbed Black Convoy's attack and the soaring energy rays, redirecting them at his adversary. Black Convoy was overwhelmed and ultimately fragmented into pieces.

The Cybertrons erupted in jubilation, while Starscream and the other Seekers gathered their comrade's wreckage and hastily departed.

"Well, my friends, have we resolved everything?" Convoy inquired. "Commander, what do you think? I'm feeling quite content right now and can't imagine anything else. Let's regroup tomorrow!" Ultra Magnus issued the command, and the Cybertron army set forth down the road, disappearing into the sunset. At the very end, Grimlock experienced a nagging sensation, as if he had forgotten something of great importance.
