Kickback appears in the cramped communications room of Outpost Dinosaurer. Looking banged-up and grumpy, he reports, "Decepticons, the Nemesis has crashed into the western part of the North American continent of Earth. The crew has survived, but we've been damaged and scattered. We need all Earth-bound Decepticons to report in at once. Coordinates will follow." Kickback broadcasts the location of Mt. St. Hilary in Oregon on Shattered Glass Earth.
