    I honestly think Transformers One will be a visual adaptation of the Defiance comic, with a few retcons here and there. We might get some spotlight on characters who got screwed over in the previous movies like Jazz and Shockwave, while also being introduced to characters who have not appeared yet like Prowl.

    These guys must have their original colors and be recognizable
    (No Hot Rod style face and color change ups)
    (Optimus could be Orion Pax or newly minted Optimus)

    Prowl (as a complex hero that seems like a villain)
    Optimus (Peaceful, thoughtful, slow and powerfull)
    Sunstreaker (Human hating, self obsessed Autobot)
    Banzitron (Second in command and Metallico Brother to Bludgeon)
    Bludegon (scheming villain, whose plan doesn't take shape until the final act)

    Megatron should have a cameo but not be evil yet!

    The two retcons that would be needed are for The Fallen to either never be trapped in a sarcophagus or The Fallen to be free before Megatron crashes into Earth and for Sentinel to have a role.

    It occurs to me that they could do great things with deceased characters in a prequel... but then won't that make their ultimate role and fate that much more disappointing? I dunno. Seems iffy either way.

    I wonder if Megatron was a gladiator at some point like he was in many other continuities.

    Maybe Megatron and Optimus were alllies as gladiators, hence Optimus calling Megatron "brother".

    That's the working name for the animated Cybertron prequel. :)

    This is a scene I want to happen..... Until more is revealed. This is inspired by the revelation that Earth is Unicron.

    Iacon Hall of Records...

    Optimus: I am here, Sentinel. Why did you bring me here?

    Sentinel: Optimus, my old friend. I must talk to you in private about something.

    Optimus: I'm listening.

    *Sentinel Prime walks over to a carved Cybertronian knight table*

    Sentinel: Do you, my friend? Know what a table like this means?

    *Optimus observes in silence until he finally answers*

    Optimus: It represents an ancient tale of how Cybertron came to be. How Unicron and Primus have fought.... Primus gave his own life to destroy Unicron. He gave his spark to save the rest of the universe. Once he did, our kind miraculously sprout into existence.

    Sentinel: There is more to that story, my friend.

    Optimus: What do you mean?

    Sentinel: This is the tale of a future that is yet to come. Cybertron's doom.

    Optimus: I don't know what you are talking about, Sentinel. Cybertron's fate lies with the Allspark itself. As long as we don't lose it, Cybertron will live.

    Sentinel: From my understanding, our planet will die regardless from the inevitable return of its ancient enemy.

    Optimus: Sentinel, you may be my teacher but we are at war with the Decepticons. There is no time to be talking about stories.

    Sentinel: Indeed we are... What you must realize is I am proposing a solution to the war.

    *Optimus struggles with what his mentor had said.*

    Optimus: I don't understand... How do you plan to do it?

    Sentinel: I will leave Cybertron. I will leave for an expedition that may take eons. But in the end, I will find out the quintessential answer to saving our planet in the best possible way. Remember what the Knights used to say: No sacrifice, no victory.

    Optimus: The Knights are all but legends as well. There is nothing left to take from their heritage....

    Sentinel: We are Primes, Optimus. Our source of knowledge can be chosen from anywhere. I hope you can understand. Which is why in my absence, you will be leader.

    *Optimus looks surprised..*

    Optimus: I'm merely a soldier for now, Sentinel. I'm not much of a leader especially compared to you.

    Sentinel: Have faith, my old friend. In my view, you were always my equal.

    *Sentinel rests his hand on Optimus. Optimus then looks up filled with confidence*

    Here's another scene I have envisioned between Megatron and Sentinel's deal.

    Kaon....

    Soundwave: We have a guest, Lord Megatron...

    *Sentinel Prime enters accompanied by Decepticon soldiers*

    Megatron: What brings you here, you old fool?

    Sentinel Prime: I am here to offer you a negotiation to save Cybertron. I hope you can listen....

    *Megatron snarls*

    Megatron: You can't offer me anything at this point. The Allspark is in my grasp and your forces are all dead soon...

    Sentinel: I understand. Which is why I am here to tell you that your hold on our planet won't be enough.

    Megatron: Sentinel.... Why would you teach me anything? Is this because Optimus has failed you?

    Sentinel: It's because he wouldn't understand. What if I told you now that Unicron is awakening? Ready to consume Cybertron once and for all?

    *The Decepticons look confused*

    Starscream: There's no need to listen to stories right now. Isn't that right, master?

    *Megatron smacks Starscream aside*

    Megatron: Tell me what do you mean?

    Sentinel: I believe that saving Cybertron requires more than just the spark. It is also the knowledge to prevent the inevitable.

    Megatron: Is that all?

    Sentinel: No, I just need you to understand something. Something even the Autobots don't know.

    Megatron: That sounds more promising. Who would have thought that out of all the Autobots, you are their most treacherous?

    *Sentinel does not sound pleased with his answer before he shows one of his pillars to Megatron*

    Sentinel: I have built a space bridge with Cybertron's co-ordinates engraved. I plan to leave this planet so I can find Unicron. Once I find him, his spark can be harvested so I can save Cybertron for good.

    Megatron: You can't possibly have built a machine capable of transporting a planet.... You have wasted your life coming here!

    *Megatron attempts to shoot Sentinel with his fusion cannon. Sentinel dispatches the Decepticons holding him with his blade before slicing Megatron's cannon off and pining him down*

    Sentinel: This is why you were never a Prime.

    Megatron: I have still proven to learn from the best. I have learnt from the best of the Primes.

    Sentinel: No one would consider the Fallen as wise. Unless they're as mad as you.

    Megatron: Don't be so sure. You would have no problem taking a life as well.

    Sentinel: Only if they stand in my way.

    *Sentinel lets go of Megatron before he turns his back and leaves*

    Sentinel: Think about what I have said, Megatron.

    *Megatron gets up rubbing his neck*

    Starscream: You can't possibly trust him, can you master?

    Megatron: Of course not. Soundwave, I need you to keep a watchful eye on our old friend. Make sure we have a unit capable of tracking down the old fool.

    While this isn't necessary. Here's how I would write the rebellion against the Creators.

    Ignition chamber...
    Quintessa: Tell me, what did you find about that Cube?

    Quintesson #1: It is the remenants of the one called Primus. His own spark. The one way these mechanical beings have come to be....

    Quintesson #2: We have however found out a way to control this object thanks to your wisdom. We learnt from your spell to take control of the Knights and now all creation from the spark of Primus is chosen from us.

    *Quintessa displeased, screeches at the Quintessons who cower in fear*

    Quintessa: Any bidding is for me to decide! You along with those beings are all mine to command...

    *Quintessa calms down before asking again...*

    Quintessa: What exactly did you create for me?

    Quintesson #1: For starters, we created unique classes for you. We have the Seekers, who do most of your bidding by finding resources. We have the Primes who we named after you to share the greatest knowledge out of our slaves and are the ones to do the big jobs. And we have the original Knights who protect us from rebellion.

    Quintessa: Why should you need the Knights, when you should fend for yourselves?

    Quintessa #2: You've only created us to be the smartest, not the strongest.

    Quintessa: May I ask? Can you forge something greater (Infernocus) to keep the Knights at bay?

    Quintessa #1: It can be done.

    Quintessa: I cannot stand to think of something that will betray me that easily.


    OK the next part, I'm not gonna bother with dialogue/script, so I'll write this out. A Knight accidentally breaks free out of the spell and much to the Quintesson's under estimation, the Knight was smart enough to inspire a Prime known to lead a rebellion of sorts.

    The Prime leads the charge to drive the Quintesson forces away with the Knights, Primes and Seekers behind him. Quintessa's forces are overwhelmed due to the Cybertronians new intelligence. Once they reach Quintessa, the Prime fights against Quintessa sacrificing his own in the process to weaken Quintessa.

    The Knights make judgement on what they should do with Quintessa. Some suggest execution but the ultimate conclusion is banishment since she no longer poses that much of a threat. Plus the Knights want to be examples of what justice should be for modern Cybetron society.

    The Prime who died is honored with the Knights adopting 'no sacrifice, no victory'. The Allspark begins to slowly return to giving life by free will. The Knights leave Cybertron to set out their lessons of peace and watch out should Quintessa or any other enemy returns. The Primes take the lead and like the Knights set out to the universe for energon to keep Cybertron flourishing.

    Generations later, the Prime who has died is reincarnated as Optimus (Orion Pax) himself who has little to no memory of his past while he goes out as a normal Cybertronian for the first time.

    You might not like what I did with the ending but I did it because it's one way of making sense.
