The Axalon

The Axalon is the Autobot starship initially commanded by Hot Shot and later Optimus Prime during the Unicron Battles. She was constructed on Earth as a means of returning home to Cybertron before the Decepticons did.

During the war against Unicron, she served as both the Autobot and Allied Transformer flagship.

Fiction[]

Armada cartoon[]

The Autobot Axalon was completed shortly after Optimus Prime's death at the hands of the Hydra Cannon, and as Hot Shot was left in charge of the Autobots, he eventually assumed command. Launch did not go smoothly, however, as the Mini-Cons refused to allow the Autobots to launch the ship without bringing the kids along. After that was sorted out, the Axalon was launched from an underwater drydock that was flooded to allow the ship to fly out of the lake near their base.

Shortly after the launch, a depressed Megatron ordered his starship to be turned around so he could destroy the Autobots within the asteroid belt. This led the Mini-Cons to man the Axalon's point defense laser turrets and call upon the remaining Mini-Cons within the solar system to enter the Matrix and resurrect Optimus Prime and create the new Transformer, Overload, who quickly defeated Megatron, sending the Decepticons into retreat. Megatron, however, was quite pleased that his old enemy had returned.

Energon cartoon[]

The Axalon served as transport for the human delegation sent from Earth to Cybertron. Among the passengers were the Autobots' old friends Rad White, Carlos Lopez and Alexis, as well as human energon researcher Dr. Brian Jones and his son, Kicker Jones. Template:Storylink

She was later replaced as Autobot flagship by the Miranda II, and was destroyed along with another transport ship by an energon tower during the Powerlinx Battles. Template:Storylink

Out on a stroll on Hawaii, Stella Holley spotted a bright light in the sky and enquired if that was the Mini-Cons' friends' spaceship they had told her about. Redline answered that it was and that it was calling for them to follow. Template:Storylink

Transformers: Universe[]

The Axalon makes its 3D CGI appearance in Transformers: Universe. She was constructed on Earth as a means of returning home to Cybertron before the Decepticons did.

The Autobot ship, Axalon, was completed shortly after the Hydra Cannon obliterated the comet. The Axalon was launched from an underwater drydock that was flooded to allow the ship to fly out of the lake near their base. The Autobots traveled to the Counter-Earth, Gaia

After Optimus Prime's death at the hands of the Hydra Cannon, and the recovery of the AllSpark as Hot Shot was left in charge of the Autobots, he eventually assumed command. Launch did not go smoothly, however, as the Mini-Cons refused to allow the Autobots to launch the ship without bringing the kids along. After that was sorted out, the Axalon set a course back for Cybertron.

Shortly after the launch, a depressed Megatron ordered the Decepticon starships to guard the Nemesis II in order to prepare the Omega Lock so he could destroy the Autobots. This led the Mini-Cons to man the Axalon's point defense laser turrets and call upon the remaining Mini-Cons within the solar system to enter the Matrix and resurrect Optimus Prime and create the new Transformer, Overload, who quickly defeated Megatron, sending the Decepticons into retreat. Megatron, however, was quite pleased that his old enemy had returned.

The Axalon visited Saturn's moon Titan, Tlalak, Brobdingnag and Monacus on its way to Cybertron. As it sailed through space, the Axalon crew made first contact with the Sharkticons, using the Allspark to rebuild their homeworld.

Soon afterwards, Windblade seized the AllSpark and travelled down to a nearby red planet in a single-minded rage. When Optimus, Hot Rod, Hot Shot, Bumblebee, and Cheetor followed, they found that she had been responding to the call of an ailing Titan, Croaton. After the Allspark had been used to heal the giant, he departed to find his abducted crew.

The Axalon sought out a space bridge at the Nameless Planet it could use to quickly return home. When one was found and repaired, the Axalon and the Hydra Cannon found themselves trapped in unspace, the space between universes, along with nine alternate versions of itself. Acting as one, the Axalon's combined the power of the nine Allsparks to return to their universes and the Autobots reached Cybertron.

The Axalon served as transport for the human delegation sent from Earth to Cybertron. Among the passengers were the Autobots' old friends Rad White, Carlos Lopez and Alexis, as well as human energon researcher Dr. Brian Jones and his son, Kicker Jones.

She was later replaced as Autobot flagship by the Miranda II, and was damaged by Galvatron during the Powerlinx Battles. She was later repaired.

The Axalon's propulsion system is significantly faster than the one onboard Megatron's flagship, as (according to Thrust) she was equipped with Mark-2600 Warp Engines. For defense, she is armed with dual-barrel laser cannon turrets that can be manually fired by Mini-Con crew members.

Two ventrally-mounted launch tubes fire shuttle pods that personnel can use for evacuation or reconnaissance missions.

Although she is not the largest ship in the Autobot fleet, her interiors are designed to provide comfortable and ample living spaces for Transformers, Mini-Cons and humans. Upon the stern is a large windowed observation deck.
