G1 Cartoon Script Collection: Volumes 5 and 6 - Elita-1's Debut

With her return to TV in Transformers: Earthspark less than a week away, a look back at Elita One's debut with the script for "The Search For Alpha Trion". Available to read in full at sunbowmarvelarchive


ELITA ONE is the female Autobot leader. She is the most powerful female Autobot, and is the counterpart of Optimus Prime. She and Prime have been separated for four million years, and do not know of the other's existance. (This is true for all the Autobots and their counterparts.) If a robot can be said to have charisma, then Elite One definitely has it. She is a fine leader, and the female Autobots respect her and honor her authority. Elite is also quite strong, and is a skilled warrior.

CHROMIA is Ironhide's counterpart, and like Ironhide, she is her leader's right-hand robot. Chromic is the toughest of the female Autobots; more matronly than the others, she is dedicated to Elite One. When Elite is not with the female Autobots on a mission, Chromic is usually put in charge. Chromic tells it like it is, and not much surprises her. She is quick to make decisions involving the female Autobots, and the others are usually equally quick to follow her lead.

FIRESTAR is Inferno's counterpart. Firestar is gungho, loves conflict, and is always eager to go on a mission. Firestar is extremely popular with the other female Autobots, and can always be counted on to pull her weight in an emergency. She loves taking risks (smashing through walls and surprising the enemy). She is quite dedicated to Elita One and will never disobey order unless convinced it is for the Autobots' welfare. Firestar is an excellent marksman. She TRANSFORMS into a high-tech FLATBED STYLE TRUCK, which is often used for transport.

MOONRACER is Powerglide's counterpart. Although she can not fly, she is very proud of her sleek Cybertronic physique (in both robot and vehicle modes). She is the most impetuous of the female Autobots, and is prone to rash judgements (often getting in trouble as a result). Like Powerglide, Moonracer is a bit of a show-off, but she feels that she is acting for the good of the Autobots. Moonracer is an excellent sharp-shooter, is brave, and will usually admit her mistakes when confronted with them.

ALPHA TRION -- the wisest, oldest Autobot in existance. During the course of the story we discover that he is the creator and programmer of several Autobots (even though this information is just implied and never admitted directly). He operates out of a large base in a hidden section of Cybertron. His laboratory, which appears haphazard and disorganized, is actually more advanced than either Autobot or Decepticon headquaters, on Earth and Cybertron. Alpha Trion appears to Elite One through the use of a special holographic device.

Job is now done, with the 9 scripts of Volume 6 added to the Archive.

This leaves the number of season 2 episodes without a script or storyboard to tell the tale at 14.

Volume 5 is now complete, as Child's Play, Quest For Survival and The Secret Of Omega Supreme are now added to the Archive.

The Golden Lagoon and Make Tracks added to the mix.

In 2008, the Hartman Bros. sold off 7 script binders previously belonging to Bryce Malek.  Containing first draft copies of all 62 scripts he worked on as story editor of the G1 cartoon during seasons 1 and 2.

The owner of Volumes 5 and 6 has kindly agreed to provide scans of the scripts within to the Sunbow Marvel Archive.  As these binders contain 19 scripts - 14 of which have had no version online previously - completing the process will take time. Once a script is available at the Archive, it will be marked in bold below.
