An eager young Space Knight cadet in service of the Solstar Order, the four armed Sata seems to be the voice of reason for Auxin. Despite this, she shares the large distaste for fellow cadet Stardrive believing the femme doesn't have what it takes to be a true Space Knight.
Out of the academy, Sata served as the pilot for a training cruise under the stewardship of Rom and Livia to a mining outpost. She worked the comms to clear landing of their ship but was ordered to stay with the ship. The group returned with Stardrive who had earned Auxin's ire by "stealing" his first kill.
Sata then flew the ship to Orchid Crossing to prepare for a meeting with the Galactic Council. En route, she and Auxin sniped about Stardrive with Sata assuring Auxin he was great. The next morning, it was revealed that the Council delegation had been slain and replaced by a Dire Wraith/Decepticon alliance. Sata watched as Auxin was killed by Astrotrain before Livia managed to rally her.
When the Autobots entered the fray however, Sky Blast was partially possessed by a Wraith Soldier. The Knights engaged the hybrid but were unable to kill it before Ultra Magnus deactivated Orchid Crossing's forcefield and sent the station plummeting into Xetaxxis. Sata and her commanders escaped the station, catching up with the Cybertronians in time for Rom to sucker punch Ultra Magnus.
Driven by vengeance, Sata jumped at Bumblebee before Stardrive broke up the fighting. After the Knights and Autobots came to a tentative peace and Stardrive revealed the existence of her energon synthesizer, which forced the two parties into an alliance. Sata was paired up with the ground locked Magnus and Bumblebee, though their progress was much delayed by Bumblebee's constant stops to help the Xetaxxian villagers. After Sata received a message from Livia that the Decepticons had reached the crash site, the Xetaxxians revealed themselves as Wraiths. Sata blasted a few of them off Bumblebee before Ultra Magnus ordered both of them to head towards the synthesizer.
Bumblebee following the order convinced Sata that all Cybertronians were emotionless machines, a declaration which caused Bumblebee to transform back to robot mode and throttle the cadet. The battle up ahead however convinced Sata that the planet would have to be sterilized. The two arrived at the site during Stardrive's mental breakdown. Though Sata only annoyed the Camien, Bumblebee talked down Stardrive. The group was then approached by Ultra Magnus who had now been possessed by Vekktral.
Stardrive promptly grabbed Sata and used her as impromptu sword to sever one of Magnus's arms before the cadet joined Rom and Bumblebee in assaulting the possessed Autobot. They eventually managed to slay Magnus and force Vekktral to eject from his host but were powerless to stop Starscream detonating the energon synthesizer and sterilizing Xetaxxis. In orbit, Stardrive declared she could no longer tolerate the hypocrisy of the Space Knights, shed her armor and warped off. Leaving Bumblebee to make his way back to the Autobots, the Knights flew off to rescue the Solstar personnel trapped in escape pods.
Upon returning to another Solstar facility, Sata was promoted to a fully fledged Knight and joined Livia in briefing a new class of cadets about the duties of being a Space Knight.
