Go to a welder and put it back together and tack it up

dang that sucks, I just bought a set and havent even gone through an oil change yet. Did you torque these? Just use some vise grips, make sure its tight like where you use all your strength to close the vise then turn them.

If you looked at it closely, theres still some "stud" of the screw outside of the transmission. I basically took a vise grip, and spun it out. It wasn't stripped inside, so it came right off.

Luckily this was aftermarket drain plug.. If this was OEM, if the head of the screw broke off.. You probably crack the transmission case or mess up the threads first before the screw breaks apart..
