Wreckers and Mayhems.Galvatron's probe accidentally causes all the Autobots to revive. Boarding the Ark himself, he uses his mind-control device on Wheeljack and Prowl. However, as Autobots, they're easily able to deny their baser instincts, and they shoot him down without warning. Galvatron is then sent into a comatose state by a device Wheeljack created, leaving him trapped in Autobot custody and dreaming of being defeated over and over again.

With the exception of Ironhide's, they make specific reference to past stories, either directly placing themselves at a certain time (Prowl, Sunstreaker and Wheeljack) or being more vague (Silverbolt). They can all slot into past continuity with no problem.The framing story, by contrast, doesn't fit with contemporary continuity. As the Ark is flying, it has to be before "On the Edge of Extinction!", but there is no point when these characters could be revived and then killed again in time for their Nucleon revival. Furthermore, the story starts off the Earthforce run, which sidesteps the US continuity entirely and in 2015 was officially listed as an alternate timeline.The Galvatron in this story doesn't fit into continuity any better. The Dinobot Hunt! trade paperback from Titan pegs him as "the alternate-reality Galvatron from US #67," aka Galvatron II. That's frankly impossible to reconcile without that handy alternate timeline ruling. Now we can say that instead of/after/before going to Cybertron like he was told to, in Earthforce's timeline he flies off to the Ark. That still leaves us with the question of what happened to Hook, Line, and Sinker (who should be following him) and why Unicron just leaves him there.Sunstreaker was ripped in half by Shockwave back in "The New Order" and not seen online until "Totaled!", when he was killed again. He doesn't know who Galvatron is, suggesting he was only brought online shortly before "Totaled!" and was not briefed on anything. This is the first story to have him back for any length of time."Perchance to Dream" follows the same format—flashback-based character vignettes with a framing story—as the earlier "Aspects of Evil!". That story had another Galvatron too, leaving us with the possibility that this Galvatron was originally meant to be that Galvatron.At one point, Galvatron's mind bug examines Brawn as a possibility, before Galvatron rejects him as unsuitable, regretfully noting that Brawn's brute strength would have been an asset. From Galvatron, that's quite a compliment! Real-life referencesGalvatron has read Shakespeare, or at least the start of Hamlet, Act III. Other triviaProwl's reactivation by Galvatron's mind bug is referenced in his Transformers AtoZ profile update in the Transformers Annual 1991.Reprinted as a self-titled, digest-sized trade paperback by Titan Books in August 2006.

    Product Description
    This article is about the original Marvel UK comic. For the Titan Books trade paperback, see Transformers: Perchance to Dream.«The Transformers (UK) #255–260» Galvatron admires his G1 collection "...Perchance to Dream"Publisher Marvel ComicsCover date 3rd February - 10th March 1990Writer Simon FurmanArt Andrew Wildman (#255, #257, #260)Staz (#256, #258)John Stokes (#259)Lettering Glib (#255-256)Stuart Bartlett (#257-260)Continuity Marvel Comics continuity/EarthforceFive Autobots remember their past mistakes, and Galvatron prepares to muck up UK continuity forever.Contents1 Synopsis1.1 Prowl1.2 Ironhide1.3 Sunstreaker1.4 Wheeljack1.5 Silverbolt1.6 Galvatron2 Featured characters3 Quotes4 Notes4.1 Artwork and technical errors4.2 Continuity errors4.3 Continuity notes4.4 Real-life references4.5 Other trivia4.6 Back-up material4.7 Covers (7)4.8 Advertisements4.9 Reprints SynopsisThese stories do not fit into the normal Marvel continuity. See Earthforce for details.The Ark is unoccupied for an unknown reason and, watching from his ship nearby, an alternate-reality Galvatron sneaks a "mind bug" on board. With this probe device, he looks through the memories of the injured and offline Autobots, trying to find ones with dark sides that he can permanently unleash, now that he knows their brain patterns, creating a new army!In turn, his device probes Prowl, Ironhide, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, and Silverbolt, causing them all to dream about times on Earth when they committed questionable acts: Prowl So, androids don't dream of electric sheep...Prowl remembers trying to stop the Battlechargers, when his aggressive approach and their response left a trail of devastation. Optimus Prime stepped in, telling Prowl that, as an Autobot, he couldn't endanger humans like this, Prowl thought to himself, "Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire!"Galvatron chuckles, musing to himself that with that thought, Prowl has become exactly what he's looking for, then turns to his next subject... Ironhide If Prime can be John Wayne, I'll be Clint Eastwood!Ironhide remembers finding himself near a siege in Los Angeles, where unnamed terrorists were holding hostages. Believing the hostages would be killed if the police went in, Ironhide attacked in full force to intimidate the terrorists into surrendering. However, the police came in at the last moment and ruined the effect, prompting the lead terrorist to try and detonate his suicide bomb. Ironhide had to kill him by freezing him in place and berated the police as "dumb organisms".This too, pleases Galvatron. Sunstreaker Not gay. Definitely not gay.Jazz and Sunstreaker were on a covert recon mission to scout out Fortress Sinister, but the Autobot pretty-boy blew it by showing off, attracting the attention of Thundercracker and Skywarp. The Decepticons attacked, injuring Jazz, and, scared at the thought of being made "a mess" himself, Sunstreaker abandoned his comrade and deliberately drew the Decepticons near the US military encampment so the humans would drive them off. Sunstreaker congratulated himself and admired how he'd saved his good looks, while many soldiers lay badly wounded as a result of his tactic.Galvatron is amused by this and welcomes Sunstreaker to the team. Wheeljack Please, Wheeljack. Let Nightbeat do the detective work.Wheeljack remembers running into Ravage at Blackrock Aerospace Assembly Plant Number One, following the Dinobot Hunt. He wanted to find the technology used to make Jetfire so he could repair the injured Autobots, and so made a deal with Ravage: In return for the technology, he'd brainwash Jetfire with Ravage's neuro-control helmet into returning to the Decepticons. Despite not trusting Jetfire, he backed out at the last minute. He later found out Ravage had destroyed the factory, meaning he'd almost betrayed his comrade for no end result.However, back on the Ark, the mind bug has awoken Wheeljack from his slumber... Silverbolt Those be some mighty big humans.Silverbolt remembers battling Menasor, a battle where Superion was needed, despite (still!) not being fully tested. This time, the process worked, but it also caused the Aerialbots to see inside one another's minds. His secret fear of heights revealed, Silverbolt caused Superion to go savagely berserk.
