The Alchemor, also known as Decepticon Island, was an Autobot prison ship carrying some two hundred Decepticon prisoners under the custodianship of the Caretaker Mini-Cons Fixit, Toolbox and Cinch, along with many others. It crash-landed on Earth years after the defeat of Unicron, allowing many of its prisoners to escape confinement. This prompted Optimus Prime to contact Bumblebee on Cybertron and direct him to travel to Earth, where he formed a new team of Autobots to recapture the escapees.
As the Alchemor passed by Earth, Megatronus—manipulating things from an alternate dimension—damaged the Alchemor, caused the Alchemor to crash on Earth in Pilot Part 1. Fixit survived the crash, albeit with some damage, but most of the ship did not. As a result, the stasis pods that were holding the ship's Decepticon criminals were scattered around Earth. Fixit was able to repair some of the damage to the ship's systems and tried to mayday Cybertron for assistance, to no avail. Bumblebee, who was led to Earth by visions of Optimus Prime, takes his new team to Earth where they caught up with Fixit and fought Underbite.
In Misdirection, Scorponok left the Alchemor supposedly to meet up with Steeljaw, who promised him a group of "elite warriors", though it turned out to be a trap for the Bee Team, allowing Steeljaw to free multiple Decepticons, which were Overload, Quillfire, Thunderhoof, Clampdown, Groundpounder and Springload.
In Portals, it was shown that a bunch of Mini-Cons who all looked like Fixit were being forced to work on the interior of the ship, and when Steeljaw noticed this, Glowstrike mused that the Restrictor Collars they were wearing prevented them from activating their T-Cogs and built-in weaponry. The ship was also revealed to have a compartment housing a pair of Decepticon Hunters, which Glowstrike and Saberhorn requested him to help them open to discourage further mutinies among their crew.
In Decepticon Island Part 1 and Decepticon Island Part 2, Toolbox escaped the crashed and heavily-patrolled ship before Steeljaw turned on Glowstrike and Saberhorn by taking the Decepticon Hunters for himself to try and find the Autobots at the scrapyard to warn them of the plans of their "Decepticon overseers" to repair the ship and leave Earth to cause chaos throughout the galaxy. When Steeljaw and the other Decepticons were defeated, Toolbox and his fellow Mini-Cons fully repaired the Alchemor and went to take the prisoners onboard back to Cybertron.
