The Space Bridge on Earth is finished. Meanwhile, the Elite Guard ship holding most of the Decepticon prisoners heads straight into an ominous space storm. The space storm reactivate Swindle who frees the Decepticon prisoners and takes over the ship. Optimus Prime identifies the “Broken Lance” code from Sentinel Prime and uses the Space Bridge to transwarp to the ship. The title may be a reference to the movie Con Air which has a similar plot.
