The Autobots battle the Decepticons for a final time.
Transformers: Prime, also known as Transformers: Prime – The Animated Series, is an computer-animated TV series based on the Transformers. Team Prime lives on Earth as a pre-emptive measure against the return of the Decepticons. Autobot Central Command is located in a converted missile silo in Nevada. The Autobots have taken three human teens under their protection after their association with the Autobots put them in danger from the Decepticons. Megatron returns having discovered Dark Energon, but is injured, with Starscream taking command in his absence. There is also comic books based on Transformer Prime, and a video game is set to release in Fall 2012. Season 3 is preparing.
Ratchet reluctantly agrees to help the Decepticons perfect the synthetic energon formula. But once it is completed, he decides he can’t allow the Decepticons to have it or finish building their new Omega Lock, so he sabotages the project and tries to escape from the ship.
The Decepticons hold Ratchet captive, and Megatron attempts to persuade him to help complete the synthetic energon formula and restore Cybertron. Rafael and Wheeljack build a flying drone and attach Laserbeak’s transponder (which Smokescreen shot off) to it, in the hope that Laserbeak’s navigation systems will lead the Autobots to Ratchet so they can rescue him.
Having discovered that the combination of Predacon CNA and synthetic energon creates raw cyber-matter (the substance Cybertron is made of), the Decepticons plan to repair the Omega Lock, restore Cybertron and cyberform Earth through this process.
