Summary: THE HUNT IS ON! ORION PAX's strike team follows the trail of a young rebel into the ancient ACROPLEX! But what they find there is more than a single dissident-- it's a secret that will shake CYBERTRON to the core!
Comments: Orion Pax and his team go to the ruins of the old Acroplex to pursue their target, one Cybertronian named Hot Rod. After a short chase, they emerge in a large complex to find various dying neutrals, low on Energon. Hot Rod explains that this is Zeta Prime's doing and says he showed Orion this because he believes he's different then Zeta. He's seen the holo-vid of Orion calling out the Senate on their corruption. He tells Orion he has a choice--carry on with things as they are or join them against the real threat. Later, Orion Pax and his team are outside considering his words when they notice a fire on the horizon and a Guardian robot in its midst. Zeta has begun to make his move!
Another exciting chapter in the story and a very clear indicator that Orion is about to defy Zeta Prime (a logical choice at this point). The art continues to be fairly good (I can't think of anything wrong about it). It will be interesting to see how this tale all ends...
Verdict: Good. Check out the series if you haven't already!
