In the trials of Boudica, may the best women win!
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Cy-Kill learned of an object of power to be found on Amazonia IV, and raced the Guardians to that world to acquire it. An energy field kept them from landing, however, and the GoBots were confronted by a hologram of Artemis, queen of the Valkyries. Artemis declared the Three Trials of Boudica would determine which group would receive the prize. However, only women were allowed on Amazonia IV.
The Guardians and Renegades selected female teams to send down to the planet. In the Challenge of Courage, Vamp and Sparky played a game of chicken as a massive stone block tumbled towards them. Vamp ultimately jumped out of the way while Sparky stood her ground. Fortunately, the deceptively massive boulder only weighed a few pounds, and Sparky both survived and won the challenge.
In a challenge of wits Spay-C and Anya Turgenova were pitted against Snoop to channel a flow of water into turning a wheel to lift a gate. Snoop won the challenge by allowing Spay-C and Anya to build the necessary support while secretly making an infrastructure to steal their flow and divert it towards her own wheel. The games were tied.
In the final challenge, Crasher raced against Small Foot and A.J. Foster on an obstacle course. Small Foot gained a small lead over the Renegade, but a young girl stumbled onto the track and the Guardian stopped to help her. Crasher zoomed ahead and claimed final victory in the challenge. In fact, she had failed -- the final challenge was one of honor, not speed. The Renegades were sent home empty handed while the Guardians claimed the object of great power, a scroll of ancient wisdom that the Valkyries lived by.
