Get used to this, girlfriend.

One day, Rad and Carlos invited Alexis to go exploring the caverns deep beneath Cosmoscope Research Center with them. Alexis turned them down, saying she needed to study for a math test. In her absence, Rad and Carlos found the remains of a wrecked spaceship as well as a Mini-Con storage panel. By activating it, they caused the entire structure to shake.

Alexis felt the tremors at home and used her computer to pinpoint the apparent earthquake's epicenter as the mountain caverns that Rad and Carlos were exploring. Similarly, the scientists and researchers at the observatory were baffled by the sudden movement of the Earth. As Rad and Carlos made their escape with the artifact, a bright light engulfed the chamber they were in, simultaneously shutting down all electronic equipment in Lincoln, including Alexis's computer, as well as emitting three distinctly colored distress signals beams into the sky.

One beam, green, reached an ancient starship wreck on the dark side of the moon, causing it to fire hundreds of smaller beams of green light at the Earth. The two remaining signal beams, colored red and purple, continued deep into space until it reached Cybertron.

Alexis elected to go out and check up on the two boys and came upon them just in time to see a huge glowing purple sphere of pulsating energy solidify into a huge robot. This being was Megatron, supreme leader of the evil Decepticons. As he tried to take the object that Rad found, which had now revealed itself to be High Wire, a sought-after Mini-Con, suddenly another massive robot ordered Megatron to stand down. He was Optimus Prime, leader of the heroic Autobots. First Encounter

The kids attempted to flee on High Wire but were stopped by Starscream and Demolishor's arrival. Demolishor tried to grab the kids, but Hot Shot and Red Alert's arrival saved them. Rad fled back into the cave, calling Carlos and Alexis after him. Rad was sure they'd be safe there, but Alexis was concerned that the bigger robots might still follow them. High Wire led the three into a smaller room, to Alexis' further distress; Rad and Carlos, however, assured her that they'd be safer there. He accessed the ship's computer, and the kids learned about the Transformer conflict.

At this point, High Wire activated a hidden storage panel, revealing Grindor and Sureshock, who bonded to Carlos and Alexis. They took their new friends out to play in the woods but ran into Megatron. The timely arrival of Optimus Prime initially seemed to Rad and Carlos to make things worse, but when Alexis declared she trusted the giant Autobot, the boys acknowledged they did so as well.

Optimus Prime took them into his cab and sped off to a distant location, where he set them down. Unfortunately, Megatron had followed close behind, and so Optimus had to combine with his trailer to fight him off. Metamorphosis The commanders' battle caused a landslide to fall on the kids, but Hot Shot shielded them. They then dug up some more Mini-Cons, though Cyclonus stole two of those. The Decepticons retreated, and so the kids and robots made proper introductions.

The next day at school, Billy grilled the trio over recent earthquakes; Rad and Carlos played dumb, while Alexis pointed out that if there were an earthquake, the news would have mentioned it. When Billy asked where Rad got his new bike, Rad claimed it was a birthday present from his grandmother. He and Carlos headed on up to the mountain; on the way, Alexis chewed them out for almost blowing their cover.

At the Autobots' base, Optimus Prime presented them with Laserbeak to aid them with their reconnaissance work; right then, another Mini-Con was detected Base in the Big Canyon. The kids ran out with the Autobots and got spiffy new adventure suits on the way.

When they got to the canyon, Alexis and Hot Shot sped off, forgetting Rad behind. They came back, though, Alexis explaining she had gotten lost in a moment of exhilaration. Hot Shot then sped off as fast as he could over the rough terrain, severely shaking up the two humans. Rad sent Laserbeak off to find the Mini-Con and was himself chided by Alexis for being a coward.

My suit guaranteed wedgie-free

When the Mini-Con was finally found, Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Starscream simultaneously tried to claim it. Thankfully, High Wire, Grindor, and Sureshock combined into Perceptor, and managed to hold off both Megatron and Starscream. Optimus Prime claimed the Mini-Con—who turned out to be his old partner, Sparkplug—and the kids helped dig up Hot Shot from where he'd gotten himself buried. Comrade

Later, they played tag with Hot Shot, which got him in trouble with Optimus Prime as he was supposed to be helping Red Alert install some equipment. The kids then went to find a new Mini-Con in Antarctica, where Rad and Alexis rode in Red Alert while Carlos went with Hot Shot. Red Alert ended up having to save all three kids after Carlos nearly fell into a crevice. Soldier

Rad later came up with the sensible notion of bringing some camping supplies to the Autobot base if they ever had to stay the night. Though Alexis and Carlos taunted him over how many rations he elected to bring, they helped him set up nonetheless. Then, another Mini-Con was detected, and so the good guys all warped over to a forest. There, Alexis helped Rad educate the Autobots on the importance of keeping the environment as-is.

During this mission, the Decepticons started a forest fire. Alexis helped herd the forest animals to a safer area and afterward aided in dousing the inferno. Unfortunately, with their forces divided to both fight the Decepticons and the forest fire, the Autobots failed to stop their enemies from making off with Swindle. Optimus Prime assured the children they had been right about prioritizing the forest, though. Jungle

Back at the base, the kids tried to wake up the dormant Mini-Con they'd found in Antarctica, but to no avail. The boys then snuck off to a carnival with the Mini-Cons. After a while, the boys tried to take the robots home, but it turned out that Billy and Fred were also at the carnival, and got suspicious. They tried to capture one of the Mini-Con, causing the entire situation to descend into a slapstick farce.

Oh, god, it's the fanbase!

They were saved by the timely arrival of Hot Shot, Sureshock, and Alexis, who managed to get things under control, swore Billy and Fred to secrecy, and gave the lads a good scolding. As punishment, Alexis had Rad and Carlos clean up their quarters back at the base. Carnival The kids later accompanied the Autobots to the Sahara Desert and fell into a sandpit after an altercation with Demolishor. They found themselves in an ancient temple, where ancient guardian robots attacked them, but fortunately, Demolishor was there to blow them up. Further into the temple, they found a Mini-Con storage panel; but fell into a trap trying to get to it. Perceptor was able to rescue them, and Hot Shot brought the whole group back to the surface. Unfortunately, as this was happening, Demolishor got the Mini-Con. Palace

The next day, back in America, Billy and Fred pursued the other three kids to the Autobot base. Rad, Carlos, and Alexis all tried to outrun them but soon had to split up when Cyclonus attempted to capture them. Cyclonus didn't get any of the Autobots' allies, so he captured Billy and Fred instead, intending to hold them for ransom. They tracked Laserbeak to a ghost town, where the kids tried to rescue the bullies, but all ended up being captured by Megatron, who demanded Optimus Prime hand over all the Autobots' Mini-Cons in exchange for the children's lives. Optimus Prime went through with it, but Megatron naturally reneged on the deal. However, Rad was able to use Laserbeak to free all the other humans, and Hot Shot was able to rescue Rad with Fred's surprising help. Confrontation

Alexis, Rad, and Carlos watched Red Alert and Hot Shot fixing up some computer systems when another Mini-Con was detected. The signal pointed the Autobots to a disused subway system, and Alexis helped search the tunnels in areas the larger Autobots couldn't reach. During the search, Alexis became frustrated over the condition of the tunnels they were in and went on a rant on how she would stop the misappropriations of public funds once she became president. She swore to save the environment and end world hunger too! For the moment, though, she had to settle with helping rescue the Mini-Con. Once the children had gotten ahold of the panel, Smokescreen crossed their path, and they mistook him for a Decepticon. Trying to escape him, they encountered the real Decepticon. Smokescreen revealed his true colors just in time to rescue Alexis and the others from being crushed under a pile of rubble. Underground

After that, the Autobots received a transmission from Atlantis, and the team searched for yet another Mini-Con. At the bottom of the ocean, they once more came under attack from the Decepticons. Alexis, Carlos, and Rad explored the ruins while the Transformers fought outside. All the while, Alexis was also astounded by the boys' obsession with a holographic girl. 'Amphitrite' gave them a canned history of Atlantis, focusing on how its inhabitants used the Star Saber to dominate the world, and were eventually defeated by another civilization who wielded the Skyboom Shield. Leader-1 managed to grab hold of it, though removing the panel caused the city to begin collapsing. The kids were forced to flee with the Autobots to escape drowning on the ocean bottom. Ruin Afterwards, Alexis noted that Rad was feeling troubled. When she pressed him, Rad admitted to Optimus that he had begun to feel ill-at-ease with the Mini-Cons being used by the Autobots in their war. The Autobot team was then called away to fight for another Mini-Con panel on a volcanic island. While the robots were fighting, Alexis was gung-ho to search for the panel, but Rad suggested using Laserbeak instead. After the kids barely avoided being cooked by a volcanic eruption, the Autobots managed to acquire the island's Mini-Con panel. Prehistory

After that adventure, the trio decided to give Billy and Fred a tour of the Autobot base, but they were separated when the Decepticons attacked. Since the bullies were in danger of the automatic defenses, said defenses were shut off, allowing the Decepticons to penetrate deeper into the base that anyone would have liked. To make matters worse, Alexis and the other kids were nearly taken by Cyclonus. However, after a battle, the Star Saber was reassembled and in the hands of Hot Shot, so the day ultimately turned out all right. Swoop

The next day, Alexis and Sureshock went out shopping for groceries. Both Red Alert and Rad chided Alexis for bringing her Mini-Con out in public, but Alexis had taken care to disguise her in some winter clothes. She dismissed their concerns and instead turned the conversation to Carlos's habit of raiding their fridge at night. Overmatch

When Alexis tracked down the next Mini-Con, the trio, plus Billy and Fred, rushed off with the Autobots to cheer them on; Alexis rode in Red Alert. She was left behind alongside Grindor, Sureshock, and High Wire when things started to get heated. Alexis joined up with the other kids as Sideways joined the fray, claiming to be an Autobot drifter. Thanks to his help, the Autobots acquired Spiral. Nonetheless, Alexis had misgivings about the new arrival. Back at the base, she and Rad discussed their suspicions but decided not to raise their misgivings with Optimus just in case their first impressions were false. Gale

When Hot Shot and Sideways were warped to the Decepticons' base, Alexis worried whether they would return safely. Some of the other kids were certain that while the Star Saber was in his possession, Hot Shot could handle anything the evil robots could throw at him. This turned out to be false; Alexis witnessed Hot Shot return to Autobot headquarters barely alive, minus his sword and partner; Sideways had betrayed the Autobots! Credulous

Conspiracy-Welcome back.jpg

With Hot Shot feeling naturally depressed about this disaster, all five kids tried to cheer him up by making silly faces. They also helped the Autobots on their search for the next Mini-Con, and managed to find it at the same time as Blackout, and after a scuffle, it was taken by Scavenger for the Decepticons. However, soon after, Scavenger came over to the Autobots and revealed he had been a double agent all along. Conspiracy

In the aftermath of Sideways's betrayal, the trio wasn't exactly eager to trust Scavenger. He seemed to be more interested in sleeping than mentoring Hot Shot, but when the kids tried to raise this with Optimus Prime, his explanation was cut short by still detecting another Mini-Con. The Autobots warped off somewhere with a lot of snow while the kids observed from back at base. Scavenger heroically saved Optimus Prime's life, very nearly plunging to his own death, so the kids (and Smokescreen) apologized to him for their earlier suspicions when he got back, Scavenger accepted with characteristic stoicism. Trust

When the boys decided to go on a camping trip with the Autobots, they forgot to tell Alexis. Hurt over being left out, Alexis furiously declared that she never wanted to go anyway. When Red Alert and Carlos were caught in a mudslide, Sureshock and Alexis coordinated Autobot activities from the base, desperately standing by for any good news. Although she was frantic with worry while they were in danger, Alexis didn't forget she was angry at the boys when they got back to base. Vacation

All five kids observed the battle in which Blurr made his first appearance. They tried to make friends with the new arrival, but he turned out to belong to the monosyllabic loner school of heroism. Nonetheless, Alexis proclaimed that she was "a fan of his attitude." When his and Hot Shot's attitudes led to the Decepticons getting their servos on Downshift, Alexis and Rad gave Hot Shot a talking down for letting his competitiveness get the better of him. The loss did also cause Blurr to mellow out, however, and the kids were glad to see that Hot Shot and Blurr formed a friendship later that evening. Reinforcement

The next day, Blurr and Hot Shot trained together while the kids watched. They also congratulated Smokescreen for succeeding in a test where Hot Shot failed, even though Hot Shot only failed because he competed with Blurr while trying to dodge the obstacles.

This session was interrupted when Megatron challenged all the Autobots to a final, decisive battle. Due to the danger, the kids were left at the base to watch the proceedings from afar. Megatron would have won if Optimus Prime hadn't managed to get his hands on the Skyboom Shield, and when the Star Saber was used against the shield, a mighty light was released, which Rad and Alexis recognized as the same one that they had seen when Rad awoke High Wire. This light streaked off into space to awaken Unicron. Decisive Battle

Despite this victory, Optimus Prime decided the situation was too dangerous for the kids and barred them from the base. Frustrated, they wandered off but were soon joined by the Street Action Mini-Con Team, who had received a transmission from the Decepticon-allied Mini-Cons on the Moon. While Rad and Fred went to tell Optimus Prime, the rest of the kids and the Mini-Cons headed to the location where the Decepticon-allied Mini-Cons were supposed to warp in. However, the transmission turned out to be a trap orchestrated by Megatron, seeking to divide and conquer. Rad, Fred, and four of the Autobots were teleported to various locations worldwide, leaving Alexis, Carlos, and Billy behind. Finding herself unable to contact Laserbeak, Alexis hurried back to the base to tell Red Alert and Scavenger about the situation. She then tried to re-establish contact with Laserbeak, which she did, just as Optimus Prime was persuading Megatron's Mini-Cons to convert to the Autobots' side. She was able to get all the rest of the Autobots to Prime's location, where they successfully drove off Megatron. Vow

After that adventure, the kids were allowed back into the base, though no longer on missions. Alexis got stroppy when Carlos complained about boredom, while Rad tried to keep the two from murdering each other. Despite not being at the front of the action, the war would still impinge on their lives when Sideways hacked the Autobots' computer system. Despite Rad and Alexis' best efforts, Sideways's virus quickly took control of the base and projected himself into it. The trio, faced with no other options, resorted to physically smashing the terminals, which granted them a brief reprieve.

However, this relief proved to be short-lived when Sideways sucked the kids' minds and their partner Mini-Cons into a cyberspace landscape of his devising. Rad and Carlos enjoyed the lack of gravity in this new realm for a while before Sideways's digital avatar appeared to them and tried to claim their Mini-Cons.

Back at the base, Billy and Fred tried to wake the trio up. Meanwhile, in cyberspace, the kids and Mini-Cons fled Sideways and discovered that all they saw was just an elaborate illusion. Sideways managed to capture Sureshock, but then Alexis realized that since he had gone to so much effort, he wasn't in control of this illusion - and also that he couldn't harm them.

Ever had one of those days were you felt so...negative?

At this, Sideways panicked and made a desperate bid to take the Mini-Cons, but the kids' lack of belief in the world they saw put paid to that plan. At that point, a massive force of evil manifested in cyberspace - Unicron, the one entity Sideways feared! The kids fled back to the meatspace through a portal opened by Red Alert, leaving Sideways to his master's mercies. Chase

When Fred tried to tell the others about strange lights seen recently in space, Alexis was the only one who seemed concerned. All the kids expressed relief when Sideways appeared on the battlefield during the next Mini-Con related skirmish, which meant he couldn't hack their system again. The Autobots won this battle, bringing Prowl into the fold, and the kids were all there to welcome him when they took him back to base. Tactician

In a subsequent battle, Optimus Prime was seriously injured, forcing Jetfire to take command. None of the kids were impressed by the new guy's constant boasting. They also got a brief history lesson on battles the Autobots had lost due to Thrust's tactical genius; while Carlos was confident that Jetfire could easily counter Thrust, the others weren't so sure.

As it turned out, the kids were right about Jetfire, as his overconfidence nearly led to the Autobots being wiped out after he got himself caught in another of Thrust's ambushes. To his credit, Jetfire was contrite, saying he had learned his lesson and would be more cautious in the future. Linkup

The next day, the kids watched Jetfire and Smokescreen arm-wrestling, and Alexis confused Carlos by cheering for both. They also filled in Jetfire on who Sideways was and what he had previously done. Jetfire then displayed his cunning side by showing the kids a still of Sideways shooting down Cyclonus after Sideways had defected, which cast doubt on the turncoat's allegiance to the Decepticons. The kids tried to figure out what Sideways's deal was while the Autobots went to obtain yet another Mini-Con. Detection

While the Autobots were dealing with Tidal Wave, two Mini-Cons were detected in addition to the one the Transformers were at the time explicitly fighting over. Alexis was confused by the location data, but after some analysis, she discovered that it was pointing at the Moon. At that point, Sideways mockingly congratulated her on her ingenuity and explained that these three Mini-Cons would unite to form the Requiem Blaster.

Meanwhile, the boys found the other Mini-Con, Sky Blast, in the caves around the base. Awakening Alexis continued to coordinate the Autobots from the base. At the same time, Red Alert took Sky Blast, Carlos, and Rad to the battlefield in a bid to complete the Requiem Blaster. Their gamble eventually paid off: Sky Blast awoke both Payload on the beach and Astroscope on the moon and the three Mini-Cons combined. Optimus Prime obtained the Requiem Blaster and used it to force the Decepticons to retreat. Desperate

In light of this, the kids became concerned about the Mini-Cons' rights and took the Space Mini-Con Team out to a remote farmhouse where they could be safe. Thrust tracked them down, but he got caught in a set of traps the kids had rigged up, which stalled the Decepticon long enough for Optimus to come and save the day. After a passionate discussion of why the Mini-Cons should not be viewed as mere weapons, the kids and Mini-Cons both returned to base. Runaway

All the kids were present when Side Swipe came to Earth and rather enthusiastically begged to fight alongside Blurr. The kids weren't impressed, so Billy and Fred went off to play a video game. Alexis berated them for wasting time and resources, and, purely in the interest of demonstrating how silly their game was, decided to play against them. Past Naturally enough, she turned out to be the best of the lot. Past II

Later, the kids stayed at the base with Red Alert when the Autobots went out to counter a Decepticon attack. However, this attack proved to be nothing more than a distraction posed by Starscream, while the rest of the 'Cons attacked the Autobot base in search of the Requiem Blaster. The kids ran for hiding before the Autobots warped back, and bore witness to Megatron obtaining the Blaster and using it on Smokescreen, apparently killing him. Sacrifice Smokescreen clung to life, if only barely, and Red Alert went to task fixing him. As they watched, the children were given a brief lesson in Cybertronian anatomy, specifically on what a Spark was. Afterward, Starscream joined the ranks of the Autobots. Though most of the kids were initially suspicious, Alexis was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. All the kids eventually welcomed him when they saw his attendant Mini-Cons genuinely looked up to him. Regeneration Alexis took a particular shine to him, but Starscream dismissed her and the other human children, as he was only concerned with defeating Megatron. The kids' favorable opinion of Starscream was further cemented when they watched him aid the Autobots to rescue the Decepticon-held Mini-Cons from the enemy's moonbase. Rescue Later, the kids asked Starscream to bring them back a souvenir when he and Jetfire traveled to Mars in search of a Mini-Con panel. Despite his rude, lone-wolf demeanor, Starscream brought back a mysterious green rock for the kids, thus earning him a place in their hearts, in particular Alexis. Mars Alexis fashioned a pendant from this, which had a mysterious connection to Starscream's spark.

How dare you? Do you have any idea how much of my sweat and blood went into that thing?

In return for his kindness, the kids threw Starscream a surprise party, sewing a large Chamois of Friendship out of several smaller rags. This gesture touched Starscream, but he unfortunately still had trouble adjusting to life with the Autobots. Rad, Alexis, and Carlos later took the Race Mini-Con Team out for a walk, inadvertently leading to Starscream being accused of stealing the Skyboom Shield for the Decepticons. Though the kids explained themselves to Hot Shot, the damage had been done, and Starscream abandoned both his gift and the Autobots when Thrust duped him into returning to the Decepticons, ostensibly to destroy Megatron. Crack In the aftermath, Alexis and Rad tried to calm the more visibly enraged Billy and Carlos, and then they all went to their respective homes, where Alexis clutched her pendant and thought about Starscream.

The next day, all the kids returned to the base to discover the Autobots and their allied Mini-Cons working quickly to complete the Axalon to retrieve the Decepticons' Mini-Cons. The kids discussed Starscream a bit and decided never to speak of him again; Alexis was visibly upset but tried to hide it. At Fred's suggestion, they all went to see a comet to take their minds off things. Alexis, still upset over Starscream, told Rad she was going home as the others watched the skies. Walking alongside her, Rad tried to convince Alexis to stay with her friends. Then, the comet was destroyed by the Decepticons' newly completed Hydra Cannon. Threaten Rad and Alexis raced back to their friends, and all the kids just kind of stood around wondering what to do. Crisis

Hey, it's a Christian Rock album

As it turned out, the Optimus Prime's noble sacrifice thwarted the Decepticons. The kids all suffered heartfelt grief.

Over the next week, the Autobots busied themselves with completing the Axalon, but Hot Shot and Scavenger soon came to blows. The kids were confused by this and watched from afar as the two fought on an abandoned highway. When the rest of the Autobots joined in abusing Hot Shot, the kids tried to persuade them that bullying their youngest member wouldn't help anything but were overruled by Red Alert, who insisted that they had to get this out of their system. It turned out Scavenger was trying to snap Hot Shot out of his depression. In due course, Hot Shot did come to terms with Optimus Prime's death, and everybody's morale was reinvigorated; it was raised so much so that Hot Shot was chosen as the Autobots' new commander. Remorse

Under Hot Shot's understandably unsteady command, the Axalon was soon completed and preparations made to depart for Cybertron. The kids were looking forward to seeing another planet and so were naturally miffed when Hot Shot told them that he was leaving them on Earth where it was safe. All the kids glumly returned home, but ever hopeful, Alexis packed her bags anyway and, along with Rad and Carlos, headed for the Autobot base the next morning.

When they arrived, Hot Shot once again insisted that it was too dangerous for them to come along. Upon hearing this, the Mini-Cons collectively rebelled and blocked all the ship's systems, refusing to budge until the kids were allowed on. Hot Shot relented, and the kids and Autobots blasted off into space. Alexis saw fit to only inform her parents about her departure via e-mail at the last possible moment. Depart

During the journey, the kids witnessed the arrival of thousands of new Mini-Cons and Optimus's rebirth, Miracle the conflict with Nemesis Prime, and the Mini-Con powered recoloration of several Autobots and Decepticons. Puppet

Following a confrontation with the Decepticons, the Autobots arrived on Cybertron, only to find Galvatron had already conquered it. The Street Action Mini-Cons jumped out of their airlock to form a glowing green shield, which Alexis realized was to protect against Unicron. The Mini-Cons did return but soon tried to sneak down to Cybertron's surface. Though Carlos feared for their safety, Alexis and Rad favored letting them go down to the surface, as the little ones had a right to walk around on their home planet. Uprising With the Mini-Cons gone, the kids were left with nothing much to do but watch the lights of battle on the surface. They did try to stop Hot Shot from making a one-robot mission to the heart of the Decepticon stronghold to warn Galvatron about the impending threat of Unicron. Still, then Rad persuaded everyone to let him go ahead with it. Dash

Iceberg-anime.jpg

They later received a message that Thrust had stolen the Skyboom Shield and Requiem Blaster and was at that moment speeding towards the center of Cybertron, being pursued by Starscream, Hot Shot, and Wheeljack. The trio teamed up with their partner Mini-Cons and joined in the chase, catching up to Starscream just as he confronted Thrust. Alexis called out Starscream's name, so Thrust decided to distract Starscream by shooting the humans with the Blaster. Starscream, remembering the kindness they had shown him when he defected, bravely leaped into the path of the Blaster, dying to save the kids.

Time got warped at that point, and the kids found themselves millions of years in the past, in an alternate timeline. They encountered Hot Shot, being trapped by semi-organic growth; Hot Shot revealed that Unicron had created the Mini-Cons, and the Transformers' use of them had led to the downfall of the entire race.

With that happy thought, the kids were sent back even further in time, where they witnessed the first Mini-Cons being spawned. Among these were High Wire, Sureshock, and Grindor. The kids' encounter with the Mini-Cons granted them with a burgeoning free will.

Finally, the kids were warped back to a few seconds before Thrust killed Starscream, allowing the Mini-Cons to combine into Perceptor and knock Thrust's aim off. Thrust's blast was redirected, saving Starscream. The ceiling then collapsed, but Starscream used his own body to shield the kids while Thrust flew off. At that point, Hot Shot and Wheeljack arrived. Drift The kids explained the situation and the fact that Starscream had saved them. Hot Shot ordered them to return to the Axalon, but the kids managed to persuade him to let them tag along. The kids and bots sped along behind Starscream, following him through a portal to an organic-looking area where Thrust and Sideways were waiting; Alexis put on her necklace at this point. While the Transformers dealt with Unicron's minions and the various parasites and tentacles, the kids tried to rouse the Mini-Cons that made up the weapons in Thrust's possession from their dormant state. They were unsuccessful. The team was forced to flee, and the various organic... things soon separated Alexis and Starscream from the rest of the group. Starscream flew Alexis to safety, but she dropped her necklace en route. Rather than leave it to escape, she jumped from Starscream's shoulder to retrieve it. Starscream had to turn around and transform to save her.

Alexis's Good Luck Necklace doesn't contain enough luck to match her outfit.

They made it back to the surface, after which they realized the portal they had gone through had taken them to the interior of Cybertron's moon. Then, the ground began to crumble, revealing that the moon was concealing Unicron's body! Jetfire arrived and took the kids to safety back on Cybertron. As Autobots and Decepticons went their separate ways, Alexis begged Starscream to stay. Though he considered it, Starscream realized he'd just end up betraying her again and left. Portent

Starscream later interrupted a rather aggressive negotiation between Optimus Prime and Megatron, battling his old commander to prove that Unicron's threat was genuine. During the battle, Starscream decided to de-energize his sword and let Galvatron run him through. When Starscream died, Alexis's pendant cracked; instinctively, Alexis knew this indicated that something had just gone horribly wrong. Her intuition was proved correct when Optimus informed the kids of Starscream's demise; Alexis was overcome with grief and consoled by Rad. Cramp Still, she was able to attend the meeting at which the Autobots and Decepticons agreed to suspend hostilities until the defeat of Unicron. Though sad that Starscream wasn't there, she was glad he had achieved his goal of temporarily uniting the factions. Alliance

"They told me mullets were making a comeback. They lied!"

When Optimus Prime and Galvatron managed to sneak inside Unicron, the Street Action Mini-Cons decided to infiltrate the titan's body as well. The children and Red Alert tagged along, barely avoiding getting crushed and getting through the warp gate that led to Unicron's interiors. Union Red Alert was left behind, but the rest of the group soldiered forth. They found the two leaders restrained by Unicron's tentacles, with Unicron trying to break Optimus Prime through Sideways's vocal synthesizer verbally. Unicron destroyed the Mini-Cons' human-derived personalities, restoring them to blank drones, and then dragged the kids into a bizarre mindscape. However, the kids' mental fortitude was strong enough to not only break Unicron's thrall over the Mini-Cons but also to restore their personalities. The kids and Mini-Cons then managed to release the weapons, allowing Optimus Prime to blow up Sideways with the Requiem Blaster.

However, Galvatron challenged Optimus Prime to a final battle on the way out, Origin because as long as both of them still existed, the hatred and enmity would last forever. Thus Unicron would never be permanently defeated. The kids fled and were picked up by Jetfire and Cyclonus on Unicron's surface. Optimus Prime won the battle, and Unicron and Galvatron were both (apparently) destroyed.

Hot Shot and Jetfire returned the kids to Earth, where they said tearful (but temporary) goodbyes. Alexis pondered her pendant, wistfully remembering Starscream. Mortal Combat

Soon after Unicron's defeat and the reunification of the Cybertronians under the Autobot flag, Dr. Brian Jones traveled to Cybertron with his son, Kicker. He also brought along Rad, Alexis, and Carlos to the alien planet. Team Optimus Prime Years afterward, Alexis traveled to Cybertron as part of the human delegation. Cybertron City

Ten years later, she worked as a diplomat on behalf of the Earth Federation, usually as a liaison between Earth's nations and the Cybertronian Autobot-Decepticon alliance. Alexis traveled to Ocean City to tell the human crew and their Cybertronian allies about the Federation's decision to declare a neutral position in the latest Transformers conflict. While Alexis now represented the interests of Earth, she still had faith in Optimus Prime. She trusted his decisions in the Energon war, just as she trusted him during the Unicron Battles. Energon Stars

After the Battle of the Asteroid Belt, Alexis traveled to Ocean City to discuss the creation of a global energon grid to protect Earth from Alpha Q-related attacks. She was on hand to greet Dr. Jones, who responded in his usual jovial manner, which involved pushing her space boundaries. Battle of the Asteroid Belt When construction got underway, she offered to requisition more supplies and human resources, but Dr. Jones reassured her they had quite enough resources to hand. Energon Tower

Shortly after that, she accompanied the Autobots and Earth Federation personnel to Jungle City, where Kicker had received a vision of impending disaster. She and Sally were removed from the scene before the fighting began.

As Kicker had predicted, the Decepticons arrived to raid the city. Things went badly for the Autobots, and they were forced to blow it up. Alexis reluctantly supported this move, reasoning that humans had survived the fall of civilizations before, and they would survive this. Crisis in Jungle City

Later, with Cybertron in danger, Dr. Jones sent all of Earth's energon to Cybertron. Alexis objected to this because it would leave Earth vulnerable but eventually gave in. Open Fire! She then arranged for Jungle City to be rebuilt on top of a newly discovered energon deposit on Earth. Team Optimus Prime

The seeds of the future lie buried in the past. Or something.

Alexis continued in her governmental job. She was the only other person present onstage when the President appointed Colonel Franklin Earth's ambassador to Cybertron. Subsequently, she, Rad, and Carlos were among the humans who bid farewell to the Autobots as they departed Earth to begin a new space bridge construction program. Beginning

The images of Alexis, Rad, Carlos, and Kicker with spectral characters from prior series didn't appear in the Galaxy Force version of the show; at the time Takara had taken the position of the show being a continuity reboot... a position they later retconned, placing it as the direct sequel to Super Link as was originally planned. Confused yet? Interestingly, the shot of Alexis onstage was in the original...

Armada

Alexis rocks the muttonchops.

Alexis helped Rad and Carlos with Project Supernova, although she was rather cynical about it achieving flight. While she ran into some problems on launch day, including homework and Rad's insistence on playing secret agent (she was Agent Bubblegum), Alexis helped throw the Project Supernova off a cliff. Her cynicism was turned around when the craft managed to stay airborne, but it soon crashed due to outside interference. Alexis was pissed and about having to go home when Rad fell into a cave and accidentally awakened four alien robots, whom he promptly hid in his garage. This didn't serve to improve Alexis's mood any, as she felt the robots could be dangerous and that they should tell people about them. Rad and Carlos eventually calmed her down, which was good as the robots turned out to be nice guys who built them a new Project Supernova. Armada #3 However, while the kids and bots were flying around on their vehicle, they were attacked by Megatron and fled back to the garage, where an angry Alexis demanded an explanation. The robots told the kids that they were Mini-Cons from the planet Cybertron, and that Megatron was a Decepticon out to capture them. Mad that she and her friends had been pulled into another race's war, Alexis began to argue with Rad, but Carlos made them both realize that they had to lure Megatron away from their neighborhood. The kids and Mini-Cons fled to a nearby canyon, where they found Optimus Prime and his Autobots. Armada #4

While Alexis and the others were almost captured and killed by Demolishor, the Autobots and Mini-Cons soon drove the Decepticons away. Armada #5 Unfortunately, as the kids were playing around in a forest some time later, Optimus Prime visited them, explaining that he couldn't let them get involved with the Transformers' war any longer. Alexis and her friends were subsequently forbidden from hanging out with the Street Action Team. Sparkplug, who was against this, broke order and took the kids with him to rescue some Mini-Cons from the Decepticon base. Their mission was to call for help if Sparkplug's infiltration team wasn't back within 30 minutes. Armada #6 When the team failed to return, Alexis and the others called for help and ended up summoning the Land Military Mini-Con Team. However, it took some convincing to get them to help Sparkplug. Armada #7

Some time between issue 3 and now, she hit puberty.

After a day at school, Alexis and her friends were riding around on the Street Action Team and eating burgers when the Mini-Cons suddenly stopped responding to them and sped away for an unknown destination. The kids were unable to get off until they came to a halt, which they did next to a mysterious monolith in Kansas. When the Mini-Cons entered the structure, Rad followed them, and Alexis could only watch as the monolith launched into space with her friend on board. Armada #8 Optimus Prime explained that Rad had been taken to the Moon, and Alexis and Carlos couldn't do much other than urge the Autobots to save him. Armada #9 While Optimus managed to retrieve a starship to travel to the Moon, he refused to endanger the humans by letting them come as well. Armada #10 Fortunately, simulcrum technology allowed them to be on the ship "in spirit," and Alexis was eventually reunited with Rad. Armada #11

After staying out of the Transformer conflict for a bit, Alexis, Rad, and Carlos learned the Mini-Cons were all returning to Cybertron to fight Unicron. They said their goodbyes to the Street Action Team, then watched as the Transformers entered a space bridge and left Earth. The End Some time after the conflict on Earth had ended, Alexis began to compile a comprehensive database of information on several Transformers. She was unaware that this information (which, in several cases, contradicted actual events) was planted into her mind by Over-Run. More Than Meets The Eye

The first protest she ever participated in was against having to wear the same color every day.

In the ten years that followed the Transformers' departure from Earth, Alexis became an activist, traveling worldwide with other like-minded individuals to (violently) protest the misuse of Earth's natural resources.

One such trip found her in Australia, protesting Alterenergy's 01 Source research. Her group's protest was interrupted when the Transformers returned to Earth in the form of the Terrorcons and attacked the Alterenergy excavation site. Alexis was horrified that they were getting dragged into the Transformer war again but ended up rushing straight into it to save a young teenager named Kicker from Battle Ravage by shooting the beast in the face with a flare gun. What Lies Beneath The two tried to escape on a motorcycle but ended up crashing it and getting captured by Battle Ravage, who brought them to Scorponok. What Lies Beneath, Part Two The Terrorcon leader used Alexis as a hostage, threatening to kill her if Kicker wouldn't help him find 01 Source. Fortunately, Rad, who now worked for Alterenergy, came to her aid... or at least it would've been her aid if Battle Ravage hadn't been guarding her. They escaped thanks to Carlos, who aided them from space by remotely detonating the collected 01 Source, knocking the Terrorcon out. What Lies Beneath, Part Three After Rad explained to Alexis that 01 Source was Energon—Transformer fuel—and that Kicker could sense it, the two were suddenly reunited with Optimus Prime, who had arrived to fight the Terrorcons. The Autobots subsequently drove the Terrorcons away and rescued Kicker, who was surprised that Rad and Alexis knew each other. What Lies Beneath, Part Four

As the Autobots officially revealed themselves to the human population, many began to fear an invasion and protested against them. Alexis was in Los Angeles at the time and reflected alongside Rad on how she would probably be opposing as well if she didn't know any better. Rad wasn't happy to hear this, nor was he happy about her way of life, as her frequent trips around the globe meant she never stuck around. Alexis explained that she had merely grown up and didn't see things in black and white anymore, but the disgruntled Rad just said his goodbyes and left. However, he came back and apologized as Alexis prepared to go in a taxi, which made her feel better. Then Terrorcon Insecticons attacked Los Angeles and blew up the cab. Multiplicity Fortunately, she had gotten out in time and was safe and sound and returned to Rad. As he thought Alexis had died in the explosion, Rad had realized how much she truly meant to him and embraced her and told her never to leave him again. They were both reasonably embarrassed afterward. Multiplicity, Pt. 2 Using Rad's truck, they raced away from the Insecticons and to Alterenergy's west coast headquarters. Multiplicity, Pt. 3 Upon arrival, Alexis spent some time with Carlos, who explained how Rad planned to use the Energon Volant Accumulator to aid the Autobots in the fight against the Terrorcons. Multiplicity, Pt. 4

Energon ceased publication before the story could conclude. The following would have taken place in unpublished issues.

As the AlterEnergy collaboration grew between Cybertron and Earth, Alexis became involved with the United Nations in connection with the project. She helped orchestrate a task force to look for Kicker after he went missing. Armageddon Part 2 Her information helped Rad and his people locate where Demolishor had taken the boy. Armageddon Part 3 After being rescued, Kicker said goodbye to Alexis, Rad, and Carlos before joining the fight against Unicron. Armageddon Part 5

When Rad and Carlos went spelunking, Alexis followed them to ensure they didn't get themselves killed. She was shocked to see them emerge from the cave with the alien robot High Wire, but didn't have much time come to terms with the situation before Megatron attacked them and tried to capture the smaller robot. High Wire transformed into a bike and took Alexis and the others to safety, where they met several other robots. Sureshock explained that they were Mini-Cons who had ended up on Earth after fleeing from the eternal war on Cybertron. First Encounter! When the Mini-Cons refused to save Optimus Prime, who was getting his aft handed to him by Megatron, Rad decided to do it himself. Alexis protested, but her pleas fell on deaf ears. In the end, Rad taking action caused Megatron to flee and the humans to befriend the Autobots, but Alexis still told him not to let it go to his head. Friends and Foes!

After playing with their new friends on the Street Action Mini-Con Team, Alexis, Rad, and Carlos were tasked with finding the locator log on board the crashed Mini-Con ship. When they were attacked by Demolishor, Alexis again took on the role of warning Rad against taking stupid risks, only for his crazy ideas to still work. Deep Trouble! Going back to her daily life, Alexis later visited the local observatory but was followed by Sureshock. After Sureshock's attempts to "help" the observatory crashed their mainframe, Alexis made a run for it and told the story to her friends. Just a Memory! When the Autobots decided to send the Mini-Cons back to Cybertron, she figured they had no other choice and told Rad not to get all emotional about it. In the end, the plans fell through, and the Mini-Cons remained on Earth. No Way Back!

Alexis and her friends were racing with the Street Action Team again when they were suddenly attacked by Starscream, out to steal their Mini-Con friends. While the Street Action Team held the Decepticon back in the form of Perceptor, Alexis and the others fetched Optimus Prime to help them. The Two-Edged Blade Shortly afterward, they met Amos Hume and helped him save the Land Military Mini-Con Team from the Extra-Terrestrial Response Division. Sale of the Century!

Reader's Digest Armada novels

11-years old Alexis was one of the many self-titled "Cosmo Kids" that lived in the community around the Cosmo Scope Research Center and Interstellar Observatory. She possessed a "powerful handheld computer," which she affectionately nicknamed "Rover," and had a fondness for imitating a TV announcer voice and narrating her friends' adventures as they happened. During an early autumn afternoon, Alexis and her friends Rad and Carlos headed out into the nearby mountains for some trail exploring. Alexis rode her scooter on the trip, which eventually led to a trail none of them had ever seen before. Carlos and Alexis were hesitant to continue down the trail when they spotted some signs indicating it was dangerous, but Rad goaded them on into pushing forward. The path eventually led to a cave, which the kids decided to explore. When the trio found cave paintings within, Alexis initially believed them to be graffiti done by other school kids and was insulted that anyone from the local community would do such a childish thing. The kids soon realized that it wasn't graffiti at all, but ancient cave paintings depicting robots fighting. All of them depicted violence save one, which pictured three robots that Alexis found cute, prompting groans from her male companions. As if prompted by an unknown instinct, Alexis reached out to touch one of the three robots. This action triggered a hidden mechanism within the cave, which revealed real-life versions of the three robots the children had touched in the drawing after some rumbling. Alexis met Sureshock, a Mini-Con who could only be understood by Alexis herself. The children learned about Cybertron and its civil war from their new robot friends. The moment was cut short when Autobots and Decepticons were teleported on-site by a mechanism within the Mini-Cons' ship. Finding themselves in the middle of a vicious battle between mechanical titans, Alexis and her friends thankfully escaped from harm thanks to the Mini-Cons' efforts and the newcomer, Optimus Prime. Learning that Optimus had the best of intentions for both Earth and the Mini-Cons, Alexis promised to keep the Transformers' existence a secret and rode back to town on Sureshock, now reformatted into a high-tech scooter. Meeting with Carlos and Rad the next day at school, the trio dismissed Billy and Fred's insinuations that anything exciting had happened to them the previous day before heading off to class. The Battle Begins

To explain to their parents how they had gotten totally sweet new extreme sports vehicles, Carlos and Alexis agreed to go along with a story that Rad had made up; the three of them had won their new gear in an extreme riding competition. Alexis's parents bought the story, and she took to riding Sureshock to school. The next afternoon, she, Carlos, and Rad readied themselves to visit the Autobots when they encountered Billy and Fred. Their schoolmates were curious about where they had gotten the new vehicles, and the trio knew they wouldn't be fooled by the story they had told their parents. Rad claimed that his dad had bought them the vehicles through some "connections," and they were the next year's model. Carlos and Alexis were quick to affirm his story. Narrowly avoiding exposure, the trio then took off for the Autobots' base. Strangely, they found the cave leading to the headquarters now sealed by a stone door. The Mini-Cons maintained a wireless connection to their vessel, however, and were able to grant themselves access to the base. But once inside, the group found it deserted. They eventually found Optimus and his fellow Autobots, Hot Shot and Red Alert, at a nearby highway, adopting new alternate modes. After brief introductions were made, explosions were heard off in the distance. The Decepticons were attacking the Autobots' base! Alexis, Carlos, and Rad raced ahead of the Autobots on their Mini-Cons, coming face to face with Megatron. The Decepticon leader halted his assault to demand the children surrender their companions. The Autobots arrived on the scene before Megatron was able to act on his threat, and Alexis and the others hid in some nearby brush to watch the battle unfold.

During the battle, a stray shot from Megatron caused a rockslide to tumble towards the kids and their Mini-Cons. Hot Shot zipped in and rescued them, though the ride within the two-seat sports car was a cramped one for all three kids. As they drove back to Optimus, Alexis noticed four Mini-Con panels sticking out of the rubble. Carlos and Rad helped her dig them out. Two of the panels activated in the Autobots' presence, one of them becoming Red Alert's partner, "Longarm" and the other Hot Shot's partner "Jolt." Red Alert instructed the children to keep the remaining two panels safe, and they hid themselves once more. The Decepticons were soon forced to retreat, but one of them, Cyclonus, lingered long enough to snatch the panels from Alexis and Rad before warping away. The children were torn up about allowing the Mini-Cons to fall into enemy hands, but Optimus assured them they had done everything they could. Race for the Mini-Con Robots

Rad, Carlos, and Alexis talked Optimus Prime into letting them explore some nearby caves in the hopes of finding other Mini-Cons, claiming that he and Carlos had already explored a few of them in the past. The trio succeeded in finding a crystal but had to be saved by Hot Shot after a surprise Decepticon attack caused a landslide. Cave Catastrophe

In another adventure, Carlos talked Rad into joining him for a Mini-Con race, to which Alexis invited herself. They foolishly left themselves out in the open, allowing Megatron to attack. Fortunately for them (your mileage may vary), Optimus and Hot Shot were there to save them yet again. Race to Disaster

Notes

(thumbnail)
Alexis's original animation character model.
(thumbnail)
Ridin' nerdy.
  • According to the now-defunct TV Tokyo Legends of the Microns website, Alexis was 11 years old at the start of Armada. The page also stated she was Asian and that her Japanese name, Alexa, was short for Alexandra.
    • Meanwhile, according to the liner notes of the second series soundtrack, The Transformers Legends of the Microns: Sound of Evolution Vol. 2, there were difficulties in coming up with the kids' character designs, as the producers were given three mandated ethnicities: White, Hispanic, and Asian. The notes go on to further confirm Alexis as being Asian (Vietnamese American), specifying that she's the daughter of "Vietnamese boat people." Alexis was named after the daughter of one of the American staff.
    • Alexis's ethnicity is more pronounced on the 2001 Armada IP creative bible's cover. Compared to the relatively unchanged Carlos and Rad, she was heavily redesigned, and why remains unknown.
  • Transformers: Armada Official Guidebook backs up the fact that Alexis was 11 years old at the start of Armada. It also specified that she always got excellent grades and that she was a computer whiz.
    • To be in the same 8th-grade class as Rad and Carlos at her age, Alexis must have been smart enough to skip 7th-grade.
  • Alexis didn't have a surname until the AllSpark Almanac II dubbed her "Alexis Thi Dang."

Foreign names

  • Japanese: Alexandra "Alexa" (アレクサ Arekusa)
  • Korean: Jenna Alexandra (제나 알렉산드라 Jenna Alleksandeura)
