This is how the journey begins again in The Birth of Thomlight Sparkle.
[The next morning, the foals are still asleep. But soon, Grimlock starts roaring, which wakes them up]
Thomlight: [over Grimlock's roaring] Rise and shine, foals! It's a beautiful morning! Daylight's here and we have a parent to find!
Nyx: Thomlight, it's 07:00 in the morning. [yawns]
Thomlight: I know but we have to get going, Nyx.
Nyx: [groans, gets up]
Thomlight: Grimlock, are your Dinobot buddies awake?
Grimlock: [looks back at the other Dinobots, sees that they are awake and nods]
Thomlight: Alright. Let's get moving.
[A few hours later, the foals and the Dinobots are walking through a desert]
Thomlight: Okay. Just through this desert and through that jungle. [sees something up ahead] Hold on a sec.
[A heavily damaged and smoking Starscream is nearby, laying against a rock. The foals and the Dinobots run over to him]
Thomlight: Are you Starscream?
Starscream: Yes. Why'd you ask?
Thomlight: Mom said you were scary and dangerous but I don't think so.
Starscream: Well, you're lucky I'm sparing your lives.
Thomlight: But why are you smoking? It's looks like you fell into a pool of lava.
Starscream: I'm not telling! [turns away, to himself] What am I saying? [to Thomlight, the foals and the Dinobots] A few years ago, before you were born, I put together a rebel team. And with that rebel team, I attacked your parents and their teammates. But after discovering that Megatron was back, I was defeated by a certain blue pegasus who threw me into a pit of lava. But, however, I survived and now I wander this desert, thinking off ways to get back at her.
Yuna: I remeber that.
Nyx: So do I.
Thomlight: Anyways, we need your help. Cylas used a robot named Dark Unicron to capture my mother and we're out here to rescue her. But first off, we need to find out what Cylas' plan is.
Starscream: Well, I don't know anything about it. So, if you want to know, go to his lair and ask him yourselves!
Thomlight: You must know something about Cylas' plan.
Starscream: Well, I don't. So, go and ask him yourselves!
Skyla: If you're not gonna help us, we'll just leave you here to rust.
Thomlight: Come on, guys. Let's move on. [starts to leave with the other foals when Starscream thinks for a moment]
Starscream: Wait! I do believe I do know a thing or two about Cylas' plan.
Thomlight: Well, what is it?
Nyx: Yeah. What he said.
Starscream: Well, Cylas plans to create an army of cloned Transformers from the past. And Dark Unicron is one of those that have been cloned. But to finish the process, Cylas plans to drain your mother's magic.
Skyla: NO! Not Auntie Twilight!
Thomlight: Calm down, Skyla! There's no need to panic!
Skyla: Well, if Twilight went through the same problems Mommy did, you'd be panicing too!
Thomlight: I know. But Starscream says that Cylas is cloning Transformers from the past that died. Not ponies.
Starscream: I also said that he was gonna drain Twilight Sparkle's magic.
Thomlight: Yeah, that too. But how do we stop Cylas exactly, 'Screamer?
Starscream: Well, to defeat him, you have to look for three items. The first one is an All Spark shard, the second, the Star Sabre and the third, the Forge of Solus Prime.
Thomlight: Thanks. But, where do we find these items?
Starscream: Well, you can find them in Darkmount.
Nyx: Thanks. Now you really are being a big help.
Scootaloo: I can't believe you are doing this for us.
Starscream: I know. And I'm sorry.
Sweetie Belle: I honestly don't get what he's talking about.
Apple Bloom: Ah' think he's trying' ta' apologize for all the tahmes' when he was bad.
Nyx: I think so too.
Thomlight: Well, we appreciate you helping us.
Starscream: You're welcome.
Thomlight: Well, guess I proved Mom wrong about this guy.
Nyx: Anyways, we need you to come along.
Skyla: We need you take us to Cylas and Auntie Twilight.
Starscream: Fine. I'll take you there. But please, no rejecting my help on the way there.
Nyx: And Grimlock, you and your Dinobot pals better not pound him to scrap on the way. Got it?
Thomlight: Wow, Nyx! I never knew you were so close to these guys.
Babs Seed: Well, now, ya' do.
Thomlight: Yeah, Babs. I know.
Nyx: Either way, Bro. You're really smart.
Thomlight: Thanks, Nyx!
Nyx: Now, let's get going.
Thomlight: She's right.
Nyx: I am, now can we get to it?
Thomlight: I wasn't asking you to answer that.
Skyla: She means, can we get going?
Thomlight: Oh. Yeah. Let's get moving. [starts walking] You too, Starscream.
[Starscream starts walking]
Grimlock: [roars to the other Dinobots]
[and the Dinobots set off]
Scootaloo: I can't believe that we're actually looking for Cybertronian Technology.
Sweetie Belle: Yeah. A Cybertronian Technology cutie mark would be so awesome.
Thomlight: You can worry about your cutie marks later.
Apple Bloom: But, we'r' the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
Thomlight: Yeah. I know. But we don't have time for crusading right now.
Button Mash: I'm sorry about this. It's just that they want their cutie marks really bad.
Thomlight: I know, Button.
Button Mash: Yeah. I know that too. Sweetie Belle tells me that almost everytime she comes over to my place.
Thomlight: Well, anyways, we have Starscream with us now.
Nyx: I know. But Skyla's going to have trouble trusting him.
Skyla: Yeah. Let's just hope he doesn't double-cross us.
Scootaloo: Don't worry, I've got him on gunpoint.
Thomlight: And if he does, I'll use the Fusion shells on him.
Starscream: Would I lie to you?
Scootaloo: Well, you lied to Megatron once.
Snowdrop: Yeah, remember what happened when you and Knock Out turned his former partner into a Terrorcon?
Apple Bloom: All because of some weird scientist guy who built an Optimus Prime imposter?
Babs Seed: Guys, that was a long time ago.
Starscream: Yes. But that's all in the past. And you need to very careful and cautious. Cylas is very dangerous.
Thomlight: Don't worry. We're always cautious. Right, guys?
Other foals: Right.
Snowwdrop: Well, either way, you're really smart.
Thomlight: Thank you.
Starscream: Anyways, let's get going. We don't have much time.
Nyx: We know that, Screamer.
Thomlight: Yeah. Let's go!
[they race off as the scene fades out and we got into the next one]
