Skystalker isn't physically strong, but makes up for it by being a conniving schemer. He has total control of an interstellar shuttle that turns into a heavily armed base.
Major Story Arcs
Skystalker was among the Transformers who chose to become smaller and more energy-efficient once the war began depleting the planet's resources. He soon became an interstellar assault leader who led a group of Decepticons into space to conquer. One of the planets they assaulted was Paradron, where they massacred the locals and discovered a Golden Disk. Before he could acquire the Disk, Skystalker was defeated by the Autobot Countdown and left to die. He eventually returned to Cybertron with his second-in-command Skyhopper to get the disk back from Countdown.
Skystalker then moved to overthrow the current Decepticon leader, Shockwave. His first phase was to simply beat up Shockwave, and sever his head. The second phase was to improve Cybertron by ridding the planet of all the resource draining bots, leaving it populated by Micromasters under his rule. Skystalker used Shockwave's severed head to direct the Decepticons. He ordered them into a full-scale assault on the Autobot forces hoping the battle would destroy them all. Unfortunately Skystalker was again confronted by Countdown and forced to flee Cybertron.
