    Transformers: Generations
    The story is set nearly 20 years after DOTM and the Decepticons have all been defeated. The Autobots supposedly left the planet 12 years ago, but they continue to work with NEST in secret. One day, Tidal Wave, Dead End, and Slipstream attack a military research base off the coast of Mexico. NEST arrives with the Autobots and they defeat Tidal Wave, but Slipstream and Dead End escape. In the battle, Dino and Topspin are killed. With Tidal Wave's last breath, he reveals that the Decepticons have returned with their rightful leader (Liege Maximo who was the former apprentice of The Fallen before The Fallen banished him for his devotion to Unicron). The story then cuts to 2032 Houston in which Sam now is married to Carly with a son named Daniel whose nickname is Spike. Spike can best be described as a Capt. Kirk type character who is cocky yet charming. One day, he gets into a fight at school because he was basically called a chicken and the bullies didn't show any respect to Sari Sumdac (the girl he likes who lives right across from him). When he gets home, Sam lectures him about responsibility and maturity and Sam promises that he'll let it him drive his old yellow Camaro as soon as he learns to be responsible. Sari comes over to thank Spike for sticking up for her when Sam notices that she has the Key to Vector Sigma as a necklace. Sam realizes that he needs to keep an eye on her to keep her safe. Halfway through the story, Sam and Carly are kidnapped by Dead End and Breakdown on a highway. Just when the Decepticons are about to take Spike and Sari too, the yellow Camaro shows up and transforms into Bumblebee. Bumblebee fights the Decepticons on the highway and he kills Onslaught. Suddenly, Thunderblast shows up as back up and Bumblebee and the humans get away as the two Stunticons retreat. Bumblebee drives the two of them to the Autobot base underneath Denver International Airport (I chose this because it's literally hiding in plain sight). Once the Autobots introduce themselves, Optimus explains everything to Spike and Sari. Optimus also reveals that Sam was working on a project for NEST that involved researching the location of Vector Sigma. Vector Sigma contains a special Cybertronian key(crystal skull) that can revive Unicron, who lies in stasis lock just outside of our galaxy. Optimus recites the same prophecy heard in TF Prime as well. It is also revealed that Sari is a protoform and that she got along with the bots because she felt that she had a special connection to them(she didn't know about this until now) This an important plot point because the bullies always called her a nerdy human computer. Sari begins to struggle with her feelings toward humanity and Spike steps up to comfort her and show her that she is just like him even though they are different species. Bumblebee's history is also explored as it is revealed that Slipstream damaged his voice and they were once friends. Spike, Sari, and the Autobots locate Vector Sigma in the underwater pyramids of Japan and unlock it with Sari's key. The Autobots attempt to get away and hide, but the Seekers find them and the battle begins in a large Tokyo-like city. The Stunticons show up separately at first, but they merge to form Menasor quickly. The Autobots kill only half of the Seekers and they hit Menasor in a way that un-merges them and the Stunticons are killed off shortly after. Ratchet dies from trying to help a mortally wounded Leadfoot(who also dies). Liege Maximo shows up with Sam and Carly and promises to let the WitWicky family live if he gets the key. Spike does the responsible thing and distracts Liege by pledging his allegiance to him while Optimus sneaks up behind him. Optimus attacks Liege Maximo with the help of Springer, Thunderblast, Roadbuster, and Bumblebee. Liege Maximo lets Carly go, but he shoots at Sam like Megatron did in ROTF. The Autobots defeat Liege Maximo by ripping off his arm and shooting him many times, but Liege Maximo flies away with very bad injuries and flees into space. At the end of the battle, Sam dies of his wounds and Optimus says good bye to his fallen comrades. Spike promises that he'll make his father proud and help the Autobots no matter what. He and Sari also share there first kiss and Optimus gives yet another speech. After the credits, Liege Maximo flies blindly through space. A giant shadow has been cast over him and he kneels before the mighty Unicron who still lies in stasis lock.

    My cast for it:
    New Autobots
    Springer- transforms into a Dodge Ram SRT-10 and is voiced by Nolan North
    Thunderblast- transformes into a Yamaha sport bike and is voiced by Sumalee Montano for her work as Arcee in Prime

    Decepticons
    Liege Maximo- transforms into an F-18 Hornet and is voiced by the guy who voiced Animated Megatron
    Slipstream- Grey Delisle F-22 Raptor
    Dead End- Frank Welker Audi A6

    Humans
    Note: I couldn't think of anyone young enough to play Spike and Sari in a way that I envisioned them, but if I had to choose, they would be: Spike- Chris Pine and Sari- Freida Pinto
    Sam- either Shia Labeouf or Richard Dean Anderson
    Carly- either Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Gwyneth Paltrow

    While I'm personally more on the side of a reboot since the general public and even some fans like myself are unfamiliar with the character of Liege Maximo yet don't want Megatron to return again just for plot contrivance, it's a pretty good story. I like how you merged the Animated and G1 characters together as well. The only think I'm not sure about is having Chris Pine and Freida Pinto as Daniel and Sari. I think Tara Strong should do the voice of Slipstream though.

    Yeah, I'm not entirely sure about the casting choices myself. Like I said before, I can't think of anyone who could play the roles right that looks young enough to be at least 16 or 17. I couldn't think of anyone to play Slipstream. Who voiced her few lines in WFC multiplayer? I think that she'd do a good job. Maybe even the person who voiced Elita One in ROTF..

    I guess I should take the time to explain a few things more elaborately. The Autobots didn't destroy the crystal skull because in one scene, they shoot at it and it just absorbs the energy into it. The Autobots that survived the battle are Optimus, Bumblebee, Springer, Thunderblast, Roadbuster, and Sideswipe. The Decepticons that lived are Liege Maximo, Slipstream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp. A few plot points that should be noted is that Spike begins his journey by fighting and ends it by using his head instead. It shows
    a sign of responsibility, especially when he doesn't give up the skull. The robots have a lot more screentime than I've mentioned so far. Liege Maximo can be considered a sort of cult leader as he uses the story of Unicron to justify his violent actions. Slipstream is like a female version of Prime Starscream in this continuity. More details will be explained in my sequel to this idea which will be called Transformers: Shadow of Unicron.

    Transformers Animated Megatron was Corey Burton (Animated Shockwave, G1 Shockwave, G1 Spike, maybe even Animated Omega Supreme)

    So I was thinking about who would direct this movie if it wasn't made by Bay earlier today and I came up with a few ideas.
    Justin Lin- he can make the movie flow in a fast paced way that also develops each character very well. Also, he can direct action sequences better than just about any other director out there today.
    David Yates- he will pay lots of attention to the characters and the story and then end the movie with a giant battle.
    Louis Leterrier- he's had experience with special effects similar to the Transformers movies like in The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans and he can also direct car chases and fight scenes very well like in The Transporter 2. However, his movies don't exactly rely on plot and characters that much.

    Thanks. I picked him because I loved how inhuman he sounded. He sounded exactly like a cold-blooded killing machine and that's what I wanted this character to be. I want him to be like the Joker; the true incarnation of evil to foil the true incarnation of good (Optimus Prime).

    Thanks. I think a reboot would be easier as well, but at this point it seems like it will most definitely be a sequel. I tried to make this like a reboot and a sequel. I also took into account a couple things such as Shia Labeouf as Sam. If he decided to play him, then his role is smaller and this is a good sendoff for the character. If he doesn't return, then he can be replaced by an older actor. I added Sari because I have a story arc planned out for her in the sequels.

    I just thought of a neat idea. What if Sam's last words are the WitWicky motto (no sacrifice no victory)? Do you think that that could be a neat character moment and a good reference to the last three movies.

    What do you guys think about these ideas? Do you think that this plot could work as a live action movie and is it something that you'd pay to see?

    Thank you. I've been thinking about it for a few months now and I can't quit thinking about where to take the story in the sequels. I have a rough idea about TF5 and TF6, but I'm entirely sure how to extend those.
