PROLOGUE On the planet Cybertron, war raged. The valiant Autobots fought against the evil Decepticons, in a great civil war. The Decepticons had split away from the Autobot race. They were led by the evil lord Megatron. After many years on Earth the Autobots fled back to Cybertron. The Decepticons followed. Now after three years on Cybertron, the battle continued. The Autobot commander Optimus Prime dodged a blast. It charred the ground beneath his feet. Optimus looked around him at the destroyed buildings. Each building in the vicinity of this battlefield was destroyed. Prime could smell the fire blasts. His main duty was to finish this civil war. “Sir,” A gold car yelled as he drove up to Optimus. He transformed. He was extremely smaller than Prime. It was Bumblebee. “The Decepticons flanked and took control of the Aranic Fortress. We are out numbered.” The Aranic Fortress was build over fifty thousand years ago. It had been upgraded. In the area, it contained the best firepower. With it the Decepticons could defeat the Autobots. Suddenly a blast hit Prime in his windshield. The glass shattered. He cried out and blasted back at the Decepticon. Suddenly from above two Decepticon jets began firing at the two Autobots. It was Starscream and Ramjet. “Follow me,” Starscream ordered. “I will lead us to victory!” He shot off a seeker missile. Prime and Bumblebee transformed and began to flee from the missile. It began to gain on them. It finally hit Prime and Bumblebee. They transformed from the explosion. They had begun to have mech fluid leaking out of their wounds. Starscream and Ramjet began flying towards the two. Prime lifted his blaster and shot Starscream’s nosecone. He started to spiral out of control. “No!” He screamed. “Ramjet help me!” He crashed on the ground close behind the two. Ramjet looked behind the Autobots. “Uh oh, I’m in trouble.” Suddenly a voice yelled from behind the two friends. “I am going to rip out your optics.” Yelled the grey Decepticon leader, Megatron. “Megatron,” Starscream whined. “You have come to rescue me. I knew I could always count on you.” “Shut your whimpering, Starscream.” Megatron said as he transformed. He transformed and compacted into a gun that fit into Starscream’s hand. The Decepticon second-in command fired the gun. He laughed at the Autobots. Prime dodged the blast. “Bumblebee, go help Hubcap and the others.” Prime ordered. Bumblebee saluted shortly and transformed. He drove off. Optimus looked at Starscream. The red, white and black Decepticon fired the gun. Optimus dodged each one of them. Then he ran up and punched Starscream right under the chin. Starscream stumbled back. Megatron transformed. His plasma gun connected onto his right arm. “I can finish you off by myself.” Megatron growled. He began to run towards Optimus. He stopped and fired his cannon. It hit Optimus knocking him down. Optimus grabbed his wound. When he moved his hand, he had mech fluid all over it. He looked back up at Megatron, who was smiling. Prime fired his own blaster. Megatron jumped out of the way. He charged towards Prime. Optimus stood and punched Megatron in the face. He transformed and drove towards Megatron. The Autobot commander smashed into the Decepticon commander. Optimus transformed letting his black container hit into the chrome, gray Decepticon. Megatron fell to the ground. When he landed his hand moved up into his arm. It was replaced by a mace on a chain. Optimus followed suit and moved his hand up and let his battle axe come out. The two old nemesis’ clashed their weapons together. Megatron jumped back and swung the mace hitting Optimus’ legs. He fell to the ground. His gun fell onto the ground also. Megatron hit the mace onto Prime’s face. Then he hit him again. Optimus’ faceplate was dented along with the rest of his face. Optimus swung back. He hit Megatron in the leg. Megatron had a shallow gash in his leg. Mech fluids leaked out. Megatron growled. He faltered but stayed standing. Megatron used the mace to hit Prime in the side. He swung again. Optimus clutched his side. He fell to the ground. Slowly he began to stand. “You are pathetic.” Megatron said. “I will enjoy your demise. Farewell, Optimus.” He swung the mace down. It smashed onto Prime’s back. Then he lifted his gun. Optimus rolled over to the side as the blast made a small crater in the ground. Optimus stood. Megatron hit the ground where Optimus stood a minute ago. Optimus used his axe and he stabbed it in Megatron’s arm. Megatron howled and hit the mace into Optimus’ face. Optimus flew back and landed on the ground. This time he didn’t get up. “Finish it, Megatron.” Prime said. “I have nothing left for you now.” Megatron smiled. He lifted his mace behind his head. The mech fluids ran down his left arm. When the mace came down, Optimus used one last desperate attempt to save the Autobots. He hit the axe against the chain. The mace and part of the chain flew and landed on the ground behind the Autobot. It made an indent in the ground. Megatron glared at his hand in disbelief. “I never though I would see the day,” Megatron began. “When you would lie, Prime.” Optimus pulled the axe in and ejected his hand back out. Megatron did the same. He lifted his cannon for the last blow. Suddenly a blast hit him in the back. “Back off Megatron,” An Autobot yelled. “Or I will rip out your optics.” It was the red car Sideswipe. He fired his gun again. Megatron dodged and ran up to the Autobot. He grabbed Sideswipe’s head and lifted his knee right into his face. Sideswipe fell back. Megatron lifted his cannon. Slowly it charged. Then he fired it at the fallen Autobot. Sideswipe broke a hole into the ground. He was motionless. His armor had cracks that leaked fluids. The Autobot’s metal was beginning to melt. Optimus stood at the sight of his fallen comrade. Even his wounds didn’t stop him. His mech fluid still leaked out of the wounds. He charged Megatron and punched him in the abdomen. Then he stepped back and kicked him in the face. Megatron hit up against a wall. Optimus began unleashing a barrage of punches into Megatron’s face. Optimus also began to kick Megatron. Megatron punched Optimus in the face also. Then he lifted his cannon. He blasted it in Optimus’ face. Optimus flew back several feet. When he landed his faceplate was completely gone. He coughed out mech fluids from his mouth. It leaked from his mouth, nose, and eyes. Optimus tried to stand but fell. Megatron slowly walked away from the wall. His abdomen metal was dented. His face also was leaking the mech fluids. Megatron lifted his cannon once more to finally finish off his enemy. Optimus grabbed his gun and fired. It hit Megatron square on the chest. Optimus began to fire shot after shot at the Decepticon leader. Finally he fell. Megatron didn’t rise. Optimus stood. “Decepticons,” He shouted. “It is over!” The Decepticons looked around and saw their fallen leader. Starscream smiled broadly. “Decepticons! Our leader has fallen. I am your new leader.” Starscream shouted. “Follow me.” He transformed and flew off. The other Decepticons followed. They flew up to space to where their ship was. The Decepticons boarded their vessel. The Autobots fired after them. The blasts hit the ship as it flew away out into the far reaches of space. The Autobot’s gathered up their leader and the Decepticon leader. A green, black and orange Autobot picked up Sideswipe. His name was Drench. Optimus and Sideswipe were taken to the regeneration chamber. Megatron was taken to the dungeons. The Autobots stretched his arms out and put locks on them and his feet. Megatron had entered stasis lock. That would be all the regeneration he would get.
