Story editor Lawrence G. DiTillio originally envisioned the Vok aliens as the ultimate lifeforms that had planted Energon deposits on Earth to help advance the evolution of the human race. This idea was never brought up in the show, though it, along with Tarantulas' never-explained secret origin, would probably have been featured in the fourth season, however the show was canceled after three seasons.

Tarantulas' plan in the first season is to capture a stasis pod for himself to get off the planet. At the end of the season, he and Blackarachnia have to break into the Maximal base to acquire a pod and reconfigure it into a flying vessel. It is never explained why he didn't simply use the pod that Blackarachnia came in in the first place. See more »
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!
