The Transformers' war continues in an older time, through a new generation. On pliocenic Earth, the heroic Maximals and the evil Predacons battle for survival against each other and against a violent planet.
A group a young warriors known as 'Saints', each in possession of a 'cloth' guarded by a different constellation, must protect the reincarnation of the goddess Athena as she attempts to keep the Earth from being destroyed by evil forces.
Two spaceships, one manned by benevolent Maximals, the other by evil Predacons, crash-land on a pre-humanoid planet while en route to Earth.

Voice actor Scott McNeil considers this show his best and most favourite show, and his roles in it (Rattrap, Dinobot, Waspinator, Silverbolt) are the ones he is most proud of. See more »
At one point, it is hinted at that Dinobot's beast mode is a Velociraptor. Although he does resemble the genetically engineered "Velociraptors" from Jurassic Park, he barely looks like a real-life Velociraptor. Some of his erroneous features could be attributed to him being a robot, however there are still a number of legitimate errors in his appearance: his skull is the wrong shape, for one. He also lacks feathers, though at the time this series was made, evidence of feathers on Velociraptor had not yet been found. See more »
Soon, very soon, I expect a visit from Cybertron.
I eagerly anticipate your imminent demise, then.

I remember I first saw this serial in Poland, where I was working in 2000-2001, and then I got hooked on it, and started to watch every episode in the morning or daytime, before or after my classes. It really did catch me! I was enthralled and marveled. Before that, I had hated to see any of the original Tranformers Series, but Beast Wars is a huge step forward, a real progress and areal improvement. What is bad there is a second-rate computer graphics, it is at its best naive or even extremely poor, and you see all the obvious mistakes, the goofs with the position of this or that hero in the given place, his or her coloration or the odd design of the background. Never mind, the plot is breathless. The incessant war between good and band animals, Maximals and Predagons, is very real, and you see not a gorilla, not a wasp, a rat, an eagle or a cheetah, but real people beside, behind, inside them, with their real problems, characters, tragedies and even very cute humor. The Rat one is the best, a cunning little cowardly creature, very lovable and sweet. And what a romance story in the second season! I re-watched the whole serial here in Russia and still am a great fan of it. Watch it!
