In Ratchet's story, Megatron then destroyed the dam, to flood the town below. Prowl took a team to protect the town. The remaining Autobots first block the river's path with boulders, then cut a huge trench to hold the water. The measures aren't successful. Prowl has evacuated the town, and a second set of trenches dug by Ironhide and Bumblebee were more successful. However, the townspeople were ungrateful, believing all the giant robots to be on the same side. Ratchet and the Dinobots continue their journey. Swoop flies ahead to the Ark, but when the others catch up, they find him unconscious, and in the clutches of the reactivated Guardian.
