It's been rough going on Cybertron in the aftermath of four million years of war. An uneasy peace is being managed by Autobot chief Bumblebee, Decepticon representative Starscream and the unaffiliated spokesperson Metalhawk as the fledgling society moves ever closer to free elections.
Bumblebee worries about what will happen if Starscream gets elected - which is entirely possible because he's a shrewd politician and he's recently been cryptically anointed by an ancient "metrotitan" as the one who will unite them all. However, a recent attack on the well-respected elder Omega Supreme has cast a dim light on the Decepticons - and threatened to diminish Starscream's momentum. As such, and in true Starscream fashion, he's concocted a secret plan with the ruthless Autobot Prowl to destroy the remaining Decepticons to prevent any further kerfluffles. It almost worked.
But then Megatron emerges from the wildnerness, unseen since he was presumed dead after the madness of The Chaos Event, and everything goes to hell. As is usually the case whenever Megatron shows up anywhere.
