It turns out that NASA didn't really lose contact with the astronauts during their first landing on the moon. Instead, the space agency intentionally blacked out communication with the public, allowing the astronauts to carry out the top-secret investigation of a Cybertronian spacecraft. Now decades later the Autobots have learned of the ship's existence and are racing the Decepticons to the lunar surface to discover the vessel's secrets.
