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.

There is an odd rendering error related to Dinobot's rotating shield in some episodes. When the shield is spinning in front of him, the shield's blur effects somehow blot out the shiny metal textures on Dinobot's robot body, making him look dull. See more »
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.
