This is how The Quintessons attack the fleet goes in Dark Awakening.
[The Autobot fleet flies in space]
Optimus Prime: That central planet is the Quintesson's new base.
Twilight Sparkle: And we should go there.
[They head there]
Perceptor: We'll send our patrols.
Optimus Prime: And lose the element of surprise? Twilight and I are in command here, Perceptor.
Twilight Sparkle: And you know it.
Perceptor: Of...course, Prime and Twilight. But...
Blurr: Excuse me. Priority one sign coming through for important. This is for Prime and Twilight! Message received from Cybertron: Urgent. Item: Hot Rod, Ultra Magnus, Kup, Arcee, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Ryan safe. Will join fleet shortly. Recommend to hold attack.
Perceptor: They're alive!
Optimus Prime: A cunning Quintesson trick. A fake message. But it won't help them now. Full speed ahead!
Twilight Sparkle: Go.
[Meanwhile, the Quintessons watch the fleet on the screen]
Quintesson Judge #1: Excellent. The Autobots have no idea that the central planet is a decoy.
Quintesson Judge #2: And poor Optimus and Twilight still don't understand what's happened to them.
Quintesson Judge #3: How could they? Even to themselves they seem...alive.
Quintesson Judge #2: Perhaps we should seek some cover.
Quintesson Judge #1: [offscreen] No! Place your faith in our defense systems.
Automated voice: Fire!
[The guns fire]
[The Autobot fleet dodge some blasts]
[We see the Quintessons]
Quintesson Judge #1: This won't even be a war.
Quintesson Judge #2: Merely an exercise in...extermination.
[We fade to black]
[We see Ryan with Kup before he turns to robot mode]
Narrator: The Transformers will return after these messages.
[We see Galvatron in cannon mode firing before he transforms to robot mode]
Narrator: We now return to the Transformers.
[We see some of the Autobot fleet being shot]
[A shuttle carrying Hot Rod, Ultra Magnus, Kup, Arcee, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Ryan gets hit]
[Ryan starts a transmission]
Blurr: Ship carrying Hot Rod, Ultra Magnus, Kup, Arcee, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Ryan sends imparative urgent priority one no kidding call off attack! And can they come aboard?
Optimus Prime: They live?
Twilight Sparkle: How?
[Prime groans as the Matrix flares up within him. Twilight also groans]
Optimus Prime: Impossible. Another Quintesson trick. Destroy the interceptor.
Twilight Sparkle: Kill them.
[The Autobots fire their guns at the ship]
[Crash sees something]
Perceptor: Increase magnification.
[He sees Hot Rod, Ultra Magnus, Kup, Arcee, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Ryan floating in space]
Perceptor: Identification positive. Rescue teams stand by.
[The rescue teams go out to the location]
