Dinobot's sudden change in allegiance causes Rattrap to distrust him even more. When Megatron and Rampage discover that a valley with early anthropoid humans exists he decides to destroy the valley and everything that was in it to prevent the human race from existing long enough to interfere with the wars between the Autobots and Decepticons. Dinobot realizes that Megatron's powers will be limitless if he doesn't stop him from destroying the valley. Dinobot then radios Optimus for help but finds that he must make things right. Written by

Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback it received, it is not uncommon for fans to cite this episode as the best Transformers cartoon episode ever to be made. It contributed a great deal to Dinobot's popularity, which resulted in the fans voting him a place in the "Transformers Hall of Fame". He was the only Beast Wars character to be featured in the hall's first year (other were added later), but even so, he beat other long-time, big name fan favorites such as Soundwave, Grimlock or Devastator.
