'''Nexus Zero''' is coordinate within the '''Vok Nebula''', the homeland of the alien race known as the [[Vok]]. It is located beyond the known regions of space on Cybertronian star charts. The location is called a "Nexus" because it is the central node of a network of interconnected wormholes that allow the Vok to travel quickly between various points in time and space. Likewise [[Earth|Nexus Earth]] was part of this network as related to the Vok attempt to control and enhance human evolution.

Nexus Zero is a location in the Beast Wars portion of the Generation One continuity family
Nexus Zero

Simultaneously pretty and scary to behold.

Nexus Zero is a location associated with the Vok, presumably their home. It doesn't seem to be a planet, but rather a nebulous cloud where the Vok float around, talk, and keep their kidnap victims in stasis.

There are other nexi, all part of a wormhole network facilitating travel across the galaxy. The only other specific one known is Nexus Earth, but that pathway was destroyed by the Metal Hunter's explosion. Because of this, Tigerhawk would be sent to Earth via a comet-like vessel instead.[1]

FictionEdit

Beast Wars cartoonEdit

After interrogating Optimus Primal on Earth, the Vok decided to sterilize the planet, activating the Planet Buster. When the Planet Buster was operational, they declared, "Termination sequence engaged. Return to Nexus Zero," at which point they vanished from the Earth in a streak of light. Other Voices, Part 2

Tigatron and Airazor were later captured by a giant plant and "beamed" off the planet in a similar fashion. Other Visits (Part 1) They ended up at Nexus Zero, where the Vok held them in some kind of stasis. Some time afterwards, a debate emerged among the Vok: Some were concerned about "a serious disruption in the timeflow, location: Nexus Earth." Others were skeptical, as "that nexus has been closed; the experiment has been terminated." In the end, they decided to merge Tigatron and Airazor into Tigerhawk and send him to Earth as their emissary to capture or destroy Megatron, who had caused the timestorm. Other Victories

Animated cartoonEdit

Swindle activated a force field to shield himself from Slo-Mo's powers. He claimed to have gotten this from the Vok in Nexus Zero, and recommended that she go there some time. SUV: Society of Ultimate Villainy

NotesEdit

  • Larry DiTillio intended Nexus Zero (which he called the Vok Nebula) to be one and the same with the Matrix Dimension, the source and destination of Transformer sparks.[2] However, this idea never made it into the show, and it was eventually supplanted by the Allspark.
