Raksha, an infamous and highly controversial Transformers fanatic, detested the series so much that she once approached David Kaye (voice actor of Megatron) at a fan convention and antagonistically told him that she hated everyone involved in the cartoon on a personal level, which had left Kaye shocked. As a result of her controversial nature, Raksha was originally planned to be referenced within the show: the lifeless, brainless Transformers protoforms would have been referred to as "Roc-shaans". Although this term didn't make it into the finished series, in one of the comics, Megatron mentioned that someone named Raksha was his personal biggest enemy. See more »

You? What are you doing here?
You have some information I need.
Yes. Let's hear it.
Okay, Tarantulas, here's the scoop. Megatron is a slag-sucking saurian. Got it?
Hmm? She'll pay for that one.

Peace has returned to Cybertron after millennia of fighting, the Great Cybertronian Wars were over. Three hundred years later, a new Megatron emerges to command new troops, the Predacons, to conquest. Using transwarp technology, Megatron and his soldiers travel through time to a familiar blue green planet with Optimus Primal and his Maximals in pursuit.
This well written series paid homage to the Generation One series, both the comic and the cartoon, and still managed to stand on its own. The characters grow and mature, cowards become heroes, villains prove their honor, and heroes die protecting the innocent.
I grew up with Generation One, I love those characters, but Beast Wars was unquestionably the best written series that ever existed in the Transformers series.
