Generation 1 cartoon continuityEdit
The Transformers cartoonEdit
Paradron was a lost Autobot colony accessible through a space vortex. It was discovered when Cyclonus and Scourge fled through the vortex from the Aerialbots. Upon arriving, the Decepticons found that the Autobots which inhabited the planet were wimpy pacifists and easily conquered them.
Enslaved by the Decepticons, a handful of Paradron's Autobots, led by Sandstorm, contacted Cybertron looking for help. The Autobots, under the command of Rodimus Prime, sought to liberate the planet, but found it impossible to retake. Rather than risk such an energy-rich world falling into the hands of the Decepticons, the planet was evacuated and Rodimus Prime ordered Ultra Magnus to detonate Paradron's energon core, destroying it and the entire planet.
The survivors of Paradron were relocated to Cybertron, where Rodimus Prime hoped that they would learn that their freedoms had to be defended in order to be kept.
Early in the Great War, a ship containing Landshark, Sprocket, and a couple of medics left Cybertron for another planet. En route, they named their new home Paradron after a word from old literature meaning "peace".
Dreamwave Generation One continuityEdit
Paradron was attacked by a Decepticon unit led by Skystalker, who massacred most of its population. Countdown and Groundshaker followed him and defeated him near the planet's core. Strangely, they found that the inhabitants of Paradron were nigh-identical to those of Cybertron, and an ancient Transformer insignia was seen adorning a door. Though the two worlds had no known history of communicating with each other, Countdown would discover a Golden Disk on Paradron, containing what was apparently a wealth of Cybertronian information, including an accurate prediction of the evolution of Micromaster technology.
When the experimental junk robot Wreck-Gar threatened to assimilate Autobot and Decepticon alike into his Junkion Hive, both factions jointly worked together to lock Wreck-Gar and the Junkions on the prison planet Paradron.
Ultra Magnus was exiled to Paradron as punishment for a failed attempt at a coup against Optimus Prime. Thanks to Wheeljack, he later escaped, freeing Wreck-Gar and his Junkion hive and killing prison guards Ironhide and Sunstreaker in the process.
The AllSpark AlmanacEdit
Paradron was a world in the Autobot Commonwealth. It was conquered by Decepticons early in the Great War, and though resistance cells were formed, they were brutally dealt with. During the Autobots' planet-hopping campaign to liberate their planets, Paradron was destroyed as a part of the Energon Wars subconflict.
Knights of UnicronEdit
The Paradron Disco was the sixth venue for the Knights of Unicron on their 2014 "Till All Are One" tour.
Paradron was a lost Autobot colony in the Autobot Commonwealth in the Milky Way Galaxy accessible through a space vortex. It was discovered when Bumblebee and his team included Kelly had to ditch their starship and fled through the hole from the pursuing Galvatron. Upon arriving, the Bee Team found that the Autobots which inhabited the planet were wimpy pacifists, and encountered Arblus and Kranix, last two survivors of Lithone, who warned them of the prototype Unicron. Team Prime came to pick up the Bee Team.
Later, Cyclonus and Scourge fled through the hole from the Aerialbots and easily conquered Paradron's Autobots. Enslaved by the Decepticons, a handful of Paradron's Autobots, led by Sandstorm, contacted Cybertron looking for help. The Autobots, under the command of Optimus Prime, sought to liberate the planet. They opened their invasion with a decoy ships, which the Decepticons blasted to molecules - along with one of Paradron's moons. The Autobots then landed and attacked, but found it impossible to retake the planet. Rather than risk such an energy-rich planet falling into the hands of the Decepticons, the planet was evacuated and Ultra Magnus detonated its energon core, destroying it.
The survivors of Paradron were relocated to Athenia. Later, Primus restored Paradron.
- In Japan, a same-character redeco of Arcee was released as a special exclusive during the Super Link line, labeled as "Paradron Type" Arcee, and in colors that recalled the Paradron Medic. The fictional implications as to what "Paradron" means within the Unicron Trilogy are incredibly vague at best.
- Japanese: Paradron (パラドロン Paradoron)
