This is how Present Day, Canapy's death, Captain Thunderbolt returns, and Barricade reports to Megatron goes in My Little Pony Transformers: The Last Knight.
[We then see a war torn Manehatten]
[We see a school bus dropping off some foals]
Pipsqueak: Who would like to see some dead robots?
[We then see them walking past an engine for a spaceship]
[They then arrive at the crashed ship]
[The camera moves in to show us an injured Steelbane]
[Suddenly, a walker drone appears]
[The foals are shocked from this]
Walker Drone: You are trespassing on restricted territory. Remain where you are, so that a nearby squad may escort you to your houses.
[The foals remain where they are, no one, neither the drone or the foals noticing the little robot silently moving towards the drone, or the gun pointing at the drone]
[Then someone shouts out]
Kaitlin: Hey, bucket brain!
[The drone turns to her]
Kaitlin: [throws a couple of bottles at the drones]
[The gun shoots the bottle and blows up the drone]
[Squeeks wraps a rope around another drone and it falls over, destroyed, however, it manages to shoot off his arm]
[Kaitlin leads them through a building, where another drone falls over]
[cut to a TRF camp]
TRF agent: Sir, this area has just gone live. Two Sentinels are down.
[Kaitlin leads the foals away from the drone]
[Kaitlin and the foals hide under a pile of rubble]
[The drone walks away]
Snips: I almost had a heart attack!
Kaitlin: Relax. We're covered.
[Squeeks rolls up]
Kaitlin: Squeeks, what happened to your arm?
Kaitlin: They shot you?!
Snails: Wow, you have a really big heart.
Kaitlin: (glares at him)
Snails: Which seems to be useful at times like these.
Diamond Tiara: What's wrong with him?
Kaitlin: He can't transform. I tried to fix him, but you're being a baby about it Squeeks. You did great though.
[Just then, the rubble starts rising as the foals scream]
[Under the rubble is revealed to be the Autobot Refugee, Canopy]
Snips: What is that?!
Kaitlin: Relax. I told you. We're covered. That's Canopy.
[Canopy begins walking off]
[Cut back to TRF camp]
TRF agent: Sir, I am picking up five little feathers.
[The former Tartarus Wind member, who is revealed to be none other than Cheese Sandwhich comes over and looks on in shock]
Cheese Sandwhich: Shoot, kids.
