    Time travel. The Maximals and Predacons are all from the future but, in the first episode, they go back in time and end up on prehistoric Earth.

    Yeah, Transwarp ships can go through space and time. That's how other future characters show up.

    I still don't get how people from the future who go to the past have an encounter with a dead starscream whom shouldn't exist as its too far past and he hasn't died yet and they are all from too far into the future where he ceased to exist.

    It makes no sense. :lol

    He traveled through the same means. In time. Starscream has the nearly indestructible spark. He lost his body and was floating probably through the Maximal/Predacon era, hoping on the transwarp line, and ended up as... you know.

    Well in the very episode Dinobot was like "This isn't Earth" to Megatron holding the Voyager probe golden disc. Nonetheless it has more energy resources than you expect of Earth. Mainly Energon crystals. Starscream comes and we learn Maximals and Predacons are descendants of the Autobots and Decepticons. It is 300 years after the Great War.

    Come season 2 we learn this is Earth without the artificial moon. Then the proto-humans are found and the stakes go higher. No humans means no Autobot victory over the Decepticons. When Ravage comes we learn the original Megatron left a message on the Voyager disc just in case the Decepticons were defeated. Beast Wars Megatron was reluctant at first to fulfill his namesakes wish as messing with time can have unforeseen consequences like getting wiped out of existence. Mainly killing Optimus Prime while he was in stasis.

    When Depthcharge tracks down the Axalon we learn Earth is set off limits by the Maximal government. Why we are not sure.



    Interestingly though Beast Wars II plays it straight in the future,Gaia a random planet is actually Earth in the future, but there are no longer humans on it. Considering the environment recovered I guess humanity pulled a Gundam spacenoid and left for other parts to colonize. How Unicron's bad mojo comes into this I'm not sure.

    As stated, the Axalon and the Darksyde (the respective Maximal and Predacon ships) traveled through time somehow and ended up on prehistoric Earth.

    Yet, at the time they arrived on Earth, the original Autobots and Decepticons had already crash landed on Earth and been knocked into stasis, their ships either totally trashed (Nemesis) or burried under a forming mountain (Ark).

    You'll have to excuse me, I'm not sure if you querying certain plot points or making sense of them (sorry).

    But yes, the presence of a high Energon content on Earth doesn't fit with what we know of Earth. The initial presence of two moons further convinces Dinobot that are not on the right planet. Its later revealed that the planet was seeded with Energon by the Vok (or at least implied - it is their 'experiment' after all).

    The Maximal High Council no doubt quarantined this area of space after the return of their probe revealed nothing, yet suddenly their Predacon 'allies' are up to something - they probably got wind of the Tripredacus Council's attempt to block the transwarp wave (and maybe even that they sent Ravage off to investigate) - possibly following investigation of the destruction of one of the Pred's Cybertronian satelite. They no doubt deduced that given the point of origin of the wave it was best not to send anyone else into that sector of space for fear of upsetting the timeline.

    All conjecture, of course...

    Can't speak of Beast Wars II/ Neo as I'ver not seen them.

    While that may be the case, it gave others a chance to be nice (or not nice) to you, and after looking at the thread, I'm pretty proud to say that most in this thread were very gracious to ya :) 

    Also, I'd like to commend you for actually reading your own thread. All too often, I see a thread that operates like this:

    "I see thread!"
    "I read title!"
    "I post!"
    "I negate any conversation that actually took place in this thread, but I get to post my own comment! Yay!"

    My take in this is that the Maximal government and the Predacon Alliance as per their treaty Pax Cybertronia decided to leave Earth alone and keep them out of their politics.

    It was implied the Great War ended in favor of the Autobot due to the humans assistance.

    But it is a new generation in charge not their Autobot predecessors. Only a few Decepticons like Ravage was granted amnesty.

    Its been my theory that the reason why Cybertron manage to be repopulated with billions was probably Earth giving Protoform technology. Protoform technology is likely an offshoot of Cobra Synthoid technology.

    Old Snake aka Cobra Commander once transferred Rodimus, Springer, Ultra Magnus and Arcee into human like bodies using Synthoids.
