Behold... The Oracle. The old Autobot history data-tracks refer to a powerful spheroid computer called Vector Sigma.
And you believe the Oracle to be this Vector Sigma?
The data-tracks also mention a key to Vector Sigma which can turn organics into technomatter. Optimus and Megatron have no idea of its power.
Sadly, neither do you.

To anyone out there who love Beast Wars as a child and wanted to see how their story continue,the follow-up,Beast Machines,gave us the opportunity to see their adventures unfold.
Beast Machines takes place after Beast Wars ended.The Maximals are returning home to Cybertron.However,when they get there,they discover they have reverted back to their original forms from Season 1 of Beast Wars,they can't transform,and they have no memory of why they are unable to do so.Not only that,but Rhinox and Silverbolt are no where to be found.Thankfully,Optimus is being assisted by the planet's computer,The Oracle,and they eventually find where she is residing.To help them transform and to prevent stasis lock(shutdown,basically),she gives them new techno-organic bodies(half beast/half mechanical),which means practicing a new form of transforming is required.Optimus,Cheetor,Rattrap,and Blackarachnia discover that Megatron actually managed to take over the entire planet and stole the Sparks from every single Transfomer and has store them away from Optimus and the others.He has also managed to utilize the Sparks of Waspinator,Rhinox,and Silverbolt and make them the generals of his drone armies:Jetstorm(Jet)-Silverbolt,Tankor(tank)-Rhinox,and Thrust(motorcycle)-Waspinator.The Maximals(along with Silverbolt(eagle),who returns in season two,Nightscream(bat,male),and Botancia(Venus Fly-Trap,female) must now save their friends and reclaim the planet.Optimus also discovers that Cybertron has an organic core and now he must find a way to restore life to Cybertron.
I like this series a lot more than Beast Wars,as I stated before.In fact,it may be my favorite series of all time.Why? It is so interesting.The characters have so much dimension,the storyline is fantastic,the action scenes rule,and the philosophical depth is so spectacular. It actually makes you think. Such a great series.You can find it on DVD. I really hope you enjoy it.It doesn't exactly fit into the continuity,but just think of it as a loose sequel to Beast Wars and you won't have a problem.
