After the Great Exodus of Cybertron Team Prime lives on Earth in a abandoned missile silo in an alliance with the United States government as Earth's defense team against the Decepticons. Though the Decepticons vanished for three years, the death of Cliffjumper has signaled their return. On top of that three human kids have discovered their existence and are now under their protection. The Autobots succeeded in stopping Megatron's plan to bring an army of zombies from Cybertron with a vile power known as Dark Energon, leaving Starscream in command in his absence.
The Autobot's were forced to deal with Starscream's schemes to stop the Autobots which lead to many near death experiences. However Megatron was soon revived and took back command on his mission to find Energon and powerful weapons across the world. In addition, the Autobots must contend with MECH lead by Silas who are obsessed with obtaining the Autobot's technologies which leads to Jack's mom discovering their existence too. New characters include Autobot's Wheeljack (a minor character) and the deceased Tailgate as well as the Decepticons Knock Out, Breakdown, Airachnid and the deceased Makeshift and Skyquake. However the god of chaos Unicron emerged and threatened Earth, forcing the Autobots and Megatron to team up, and stop Unicron. Though they succeeded, Optimus was left with amnesia and believed himself to be his former self "Orion Pax".
Megatron took advantage of this development and had "Orion Pax" find powerful weapons of mass destruction. However Jack and Arcee embarked on an adventure on Cybertron itself to restore the power of the Matrix in the Key to Vector Sigma to restore Optimus's memory. Now the Autobot's battle Megatron over possession of the Iacon relics buried on Earth as well as the rouge Starscream who occasionally and Airachnid who also went rouge. Furthermore the Autobots must deal with MECH and their sinister plan. Airachnid goes rouge and kills Breakdown but is sealed away in a stasis pod and taken into Autobot custody. Wheeljack returns and a recurring character. Other new characters include Autobot Smokescreen and Decepticons Dreadwing (Skyqaukes brother), Shockwave and the Insecticon hive lead by Hardshell. Cliffjumper also returns for a flashback episode.

- What Transformers Animated had in chins, this show has in eyebrows. As well as pupils since animated.
- There are both Autobot and Decepticon crashed ships, energon crystals scattered around the planet, tombs of ancient Decepticon warriors, various random alien artifacts lying around, and an entire graveyard of rusting alien robots. Why hasn't anybody on Earth investigated these?
- Once again the transformers are seen to be able to survive in space unaided while the cold temperatures of the arctic will incapacitate them.
- It is established in Scrapheap that it is not the temperature, but rather the frost that damages Cybertronian systems.
- Space also doesn't have a temperature. Vacuum is a near perfect insulator, as heat can only escape as radiation, which happens extremely slowly.
- In case you didn't know, this series picks up where the two games and novel left off.
- Well, not so much the game, it is similar in some ways to Exodus, but is a separate fictional splinter in the Aligned timeline. The novel seems closer to what is established in the cartoon, particularly when compared to One Shall Rise, Part 1 and One Shall Rise, Part 3. It does kinda goes right after the event of transformers animated since it is the sequel. As well as the game to.
- If you did not see the War for Cybertron page, you will see a link that shows it was made for the G1 series, but yes I get the Dark Energon doesn't match up.
- The Decepticons in the show have made a strange change in policy. Where as previously they have disregarded any attempt at hiding from humanity, the Decepticons of Prime have shown a desire to remove traces of their existence.
- The show bears many visual resemblances to the Halo game series. The symbol on the floor of the Decepticon's second Space Bridge is very similar to the symbol of the Forerunners, the Vector Sigma Chamber resembles the control room for Alpha Halo, and the Space Bridge itself resembles the Halos.
