  • The start of the Transformers war in the Earth.

    This was a pilot episode, so you can see the Autobots flying (but they can´t go as fast as the Decepticons). The episodes stars on Cibertron, the homeworld of the Transformers that has lost his energy in the war of the Autobots against the Decepticons, with the Autobots preparing an space travel to find energon in other worlds. Durin the travel, the Decepticons boards the Autobots ship,and during the battle, they lost the control of the ship and it crashes in the prehistoric earth. 4 millions years later, an eruption of a volcano starts up the Telatraan-1 (the ship ¨brain¨), who starts to fix up the transformers, first the Decepticons and later the Autobots. The Decepticons attack an oil reffinery, but the Autobots arrives to stop them. In the battle, the reffinery blows up and Optimus Prime has to save Spike and Sparkplug.
