Kup appears in the Iacon base command center, his chest armor scarred from recent battle. In his clipped, gruff voice, he records, “Patrolling Cybertron’s near orbit, we encountered a Junkion warship – nothing new there. However, this one contained Autobots – more of Ultra Magnus’s treacherous recruits no doubt. I’ll be launching a full investigation into the loyalty of these Autobots’ compatriots. They would have been captured for questioning except that Springer’s cowardice compromised our entire attack.” Without further elaboration, Kup ends the transmission.
