As the blast wave from the alien destruction device sweeps across the
planet, the Maximal and Predacon bases are severely impacted. The
Predacon base suffers major volcanic activity which swallows up
Terrorsaur and Scorponok. All over the planet, the remaining
undetonated raw Energon is transformed and condensed into Energon
cubes. Some of the characters become Transmetals. Blackarachnia
escapes; internal struggle with Tarantulas. Megatron, now Transmetal,
launches attack but is beaten back after big firefight. We see hint
of Fuzors being created.
- 28. Coming of the Fuzors - Part 1
With stasis pods down all over the planet, Tigatron and Air Razor are
dispatched on a long-term mission to find them. Dinobot has taken
advantage of the battle to steal both golden disks, since he now
realizes this is probably Earth and Megatron could change the future.
Megatron discovers the two new Fuzors (QUICKSTRIKE and SILVERBOLT) who
are confused and disoriented and recruits both of them. A fallen and
cracked stasis pod is discovered by the Maximals; it contains a spare
protoform without a spark. In Pred base Tarantulas (in
Blackarachnia&'s body) discovers his lair has been destroyed so he
utilizes Megatron&'s equipment to return to now-transmetal body
but leaves a psychic "link" between himself and Blackarachnia. The
spiders become a scheming "third force." Rhinox begins a secret
- 29. Coming of the Fuzors - Part 2
Megatron and his forces attack but one Fuzor (SILVERBOLT) decides at a
pivotal moment that he is a Maximal and switches sides. Megatron and
forces still appear to be about to win. Rhinox&'s secret project is
at a pivotal point -- he has dangerously amplified his own core
consciousness to penetrate transwarp space -- and as a result he is
almost flatlined. But he manages to discover what he was looking for
and fight his way back in time to set the secret project on autopilot
and rejoin the Maximals in their defense. Back at the Pred base,
Blackarachnia discovers a hidden secret in Megatron&'s datatrax and
manages to conceal it from Tarantulas. In the battle, the Maximals
are backed against a wall, about to be defeated, when Optimus Primal
dramatically reappears as a Transmetal. He was Rhinox&'s secret
project. Megatron and forces defeated and Optimus is welcomed back.
- 30. Tangled Web
Megatron orders Tarantulas and Blackarachnia to build a refueling
station where a quantity of Energon cubes have been discovered.
Blackarachnia takes the opportunity to use the energon as a method of
severing the psychic hold Tarantulas had on her. Tarantulas decides
that the cavern is perfect for his new lair and in a battle with the
Maximals gives the impression it is destroyed. Tarantulas begins
constructing his secret lair.
- 31. Maximal, No More
Dinobot decides that Megatron is winning the Beast Wars and concludes
to switch sides. He gives Megatron the second Golden Disk, though not
without reservations. The reservations are compounded when in a test
of his loyalty he is ordered to destroy Rattrap. This Dinobot cannot
do and after a final battle returns to the Maximals.
- 32. Other Visits - Part 1
Tigatron and Air Razor discover an alien artifact and accidentally
trigger it, signalling the aliens that the planet was not in fact
destroyed. Tigatron and Air Razor are captured in a beam and sent to
the alien nebula. The aliens send a MetalHunter base to the planet
and both Maximals and Predacons face off over it. But a huge Energon
surge drops Maximals and Predacons alike.
- 33. Other Visits - Part 2
With all but the Transmetals and the Fuzors incapacitated by the
MetalHunter Base, Megatron uses the Alien Disk to open a door into the
base. Optimus and company try and stop him, but are foiled by a huge
Energy Web which Tarantulas has manufactured to hold the base in
place. To their dismay, Megatron, Tarantulas and Quickstrike enter the
base. There Megatron is almost disabled when he interfaces with the
alien controls but eventually he gains control of the alien base. He
uses it to capture Optimus and tries to destroy Tarantulas who has
informed Megatron that he will no longer be under his command but will
function as an independent agent. Due to this treachery Tarantulas
winds up teaming up with the Maximals to prevent Megatron from
transporting the MetalHunter Base back to Cybertron. The effort is
successful and not only foils Megatron&'s master plan, BUT also closes
the alien wormhole above the planet, rendering it safe from further
- 34. Bad Spark
The discovery of a strange stasis pod is bad news for Optimus -- it
means the secret Protoform X has survived. This attempt to create an
immortal Maximal created only a psychopath. In a massive Energon
explosion caused by battle over the pod, both Blackarachnia and
Silverbolt are plunged into survival circumstances where they are
forced to cooperate to survive. And all the while the newly created
Rampage (formed by the Protoform X) is stalking them. Rampage is
defeated by the Maximals but enslaved by Megatron, who captures the
core of his Spark in an Energon cage.
- 35. Code of Hero
Since Megatron now has the disks and Rampage, he decides to make his
move. He decides to prevent the human race from ever occurring by
destroying the valley from which they emerged. Dinobot, still wracked
with guilt over his giving the disk to Megatron, is the first to
discover the plan. With no other Maximals available, Dinobot
singlehandedly takes on the Predacon forces in a heroic battle to save
the human race. He succeeds, but at the cost of his own life. The
Maximals drive off the Preds, the human race is saved, and Dinobot
gets the warrior&'s recycling honors he always dreamed of.
- 36. Transmutate
Another stasis pod is discovered on the outskirts of the Maximal Base,
and Megatron and Silverbolt fight over it. In the course of their
battle, the pod explodes, and a large, monstrous, vaguely female, form
appears. The Transmutate&' is badly formed, but still lashes
out at both Megatron and Silverbolt. Megatron eventually captures
her, but he cannot get her to transform, so he orders her destroyed.
Rampage however, feels that the Transmutate could be valuable, and
tries to use her as bait for Silverbolt. During the battle, the
confused Transmutate comes to Silverbolt&'s defense. When Rampage
again faces off against Silverbolt, Transmutate leaps into the line of
fire and is destroyed.
- 37. The Agenda - Part 1
