Universal Stream: Primaxium 611.30 Zeta Universe Title: Firestorm Universe Backstory: Transformers. They are large sentient robots that can shift their bodies into various forms, ranging from cars to jets, and even into weapons for others to hold. Their home planet, Cybertron, had known peace for many millennia. When the soldier Megatron rallied Decepticon forces together, they hit Cybertron hard. Megatron claimed that they were gods in the universe, and deserved to rule. The Autobots opposed them, led by the mantra, “Freedom is the right of all sentient beings.” A civil war like no other began. Unfortunately, the Autobots weren’t prepared, and Cybertron was devastated. Deciding they couldn’t fight any longer, Optimus Prime, supreme commander of the Autobot Military, as well as commander of the Firestorm Task Force, ordered an evacuation of Cybertron. Most Autobots escaped, though some stayed behind to continue the fight. Optimus promised that they would return someday to take it back. Optimus himself left with a crew of Autobots to take refuge on an unknown planet they had just found. Little did he know that they were being followed by squad of Decepticons led by Megatron himself.. When the Autobots landed on the unknown planet, the Decepticons found out that the planet was rich in energy. At that moment, the battle for Earth had begun.
