Megatron uses the base as a place to heal his wounds after his most recent encounter with Optimus Prime. Starscream, Soundwave, Laserbeak, Igor, and several Decepticon Hatchlings also take shelter here. Megatron originally arrives at his base, scaring away some wildlife before being deviously greeted by Igor. As he feeds the Hatchlings Energon shards, Starscream arrives, who angers Megatron until Laserbeak kills a bird as Soundwave walks over. Laserbeak tells Megatron how the Autobots have discovered The Ark and returned with it'scargo. Megatron than has Laserbeak eliminate their "loose ends." The base is no longer present for the rest of the film, and is no longer in use due to the deaths of its inhabitants.
