In the mid-2000s, Straxus and Grindcore attacked China's Jiangxi Province, intending to strip-mine its Ultra-Energon (and the rest of Earth's Ultra-Energon) to help the Expansion. Spotlight: Doubledealer An Autobot tactical unit thwarted them, in no small part thanks to Sideswipe hitting them over and over. Straxus and Grindcore ceased to function with the failure of Nova Prime's plan, and presumably crumbled into dust. Spotlight: Sideswipe

Qian led eighteen transforming jets reverse-engineered from Cybertronian technology in an attack on a group of Transformers in Shanghai, driving them off. Once Upon a Time on Earth Following the engagement, the President of the United States allowed the PLA Mecha Force to operate on U.S. soil as part of a grander alliance. New Worlds Order With the later reorganization and folding of the EDC into G.I. Joe, Zilong Qian himself became a member of G.I. Joe. The Modern World Qian wondered in private, though, if his membership in G.I. Joe was merely a token reassurance that G.I. Joe would not be as U.S.-centric as Skywatch and the EDC.
