Much of the show's story came together purely by chance. Originally, none of the writers knew what the plot would be, so they kept throwing in random ideas, such as the two moons or the standing stones. Story editors Lawrence G. DiTillio and Bob Forward wanted to focus heavily on the show's sci-fi aspect, so they also included a plotline about mysterious aliens. As it happened, these ideas all came to form a coherent plot by the end of the first season. See more »

When I first watched this series on television, it was pretty cool. This series takes place on prehistoric earth before the great war of the Autobots and Decepticons. I know the first episode, there are 4 maximals against 6 Predacons, and then Dinobot left the predacons to join the maximals. Then in episode 2, it was 5 against 5 and then later in episodes 7 & 8, one new Maximal and one new Predacon (Note): The maximal is Tigertron, and the Predacon is Blackarachnia. The episode,"Gorilla Warfare" reminds me of the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Optimus in that episode got hit by Scorponok's cyber bee, and he was bad to the bone. I think the other episodes get more interesting, like the episode "Double Dinobot", (Note): Here are some lines that will make you laugh: (Dinobot: "I'm afraid he is no longer with us. A shame really. He was quite a handsome creature... and quite tasty." Flicks a piece of the clone from his teeth and belches. The Maximals look on in horror and confusion. Optimus: "You're disgusting." Dinobot: grins). Those were the most funniest lines in the show. In some of the episodes, Rattrap always calls Dinobot :"Chopper Face",and sometimes "Scale Belly" As you know, he and Dinobot never get along. It wasn't long till a new maximal and Predacon arrived, and it was seven against seven. (Note): The new maximal is Airazor, and the new Predacon is Inferno. Inferno always says to Megatron: Yes,my queen. That was the most funniest line I've heard in the entire series. But sadly, at the end of the first season. Optimus Primal was destroyed. That scene almost looked like a scene from Gundam Wing, where Heero destroyed his Gundam.
Season 2 gets better,it was the birth of the Transmetals, and the coming of the Fuzors, and the return of Optimus Primal. It was pretty cool that Cheetor,Rattrap, and Optimus Primal went Transmetal. The trans metals were powerful to withstand the Energon. I also like when Quickstrike has this western accent. Of course, both forces were decreased. 2 Predacons gone, and later 2 maximals gone. Then later a new Predacon called Rampage. But the best episode to see in this season is: "Code Of Hero" That is the most popular episode of this season to see. It was very sad to see Dinobot sacrificing himself to save the valley and to die a hero. Then later,it was 5 maximals against 7 Predacons. It was cool, at the end of this season when the maximals discovered the AutoBot spaceship, the Ark.
Season 3, it the last and final season of Beast Wars. It pick up after the last episode in season 2. New things happen in this one, Optimal Optimus Primal is born with the power of Prime's spark, Blackarachnia joins the maximals. (Note): Silverbolt was the one to convinced her to join. And boy do they make a cute couple. And they got live in the Ark.(Note): The maximal spaceship, the Axalon, was destroyed. But it cool to see the new maximal Depth Charge, he is very cool. Of course, Dinobot is back, and now he is a Transmetal 2. Also, Cheetor becomes a Transmetal 2 as well. The rest of the series gets more interesting, Blackarachnia also goes Transmetal, and Megatron also becomes a whole lot powerful with the original Megatron's spark. And of course, Tigerhawk is born. But by the end of the series, Depth Charge and Tigerhawk were destroyed. I know it was dreadful to see them get destroyed. And it was funny at the end of the series. (Note): Here is a line.(Waspinator: "Waspinator happy at last.") That was the final line in the series.
The show also features the voices of:Susan Blu ,Donald Brown , Jim Byrnes , Gary Chalk ,Ian James Corlett (famous for MegaMan, and DragonBall Z) , David Kaye , Campbell Lane , Blu Mankuma , Scott McNeil , Colin Murdock ,Richard Newman ,Pauline Newstone , Doug Parker , Elizabeth Carol Savenkoff , David Sobolov , Venus Terzo ,and Alec Willows .
So in closing, get all the collections on DVD. You will see what I mean.
