|Part 1 | Flash cartoon | Part 2 | Part 3|
Primeval Dawn was a backup story published as part of the Universe comics, behind the main Wreckers story. A small portion of the story also appeared as a Flash-animated cartoon on the BotCon.com site, set between Part 1 and Part 2.
Like Wreckers, it was never completed as originally intended by 3H; unlike Wreckers, it remains unfinished, with the fourth and final part of the story never completed.
The story is set in the aftermath of the Beast Wars on prehistoric Earth; Tarantulas is still alive, having captured the power of the Vok, and has built himself a small squadron of troops. The Vok themselves restore Tigatron and Airazor to life, and create Primal Prime from various remnants of the Beast Wars. The two sides battle for control of the Matrix, which Tarantulas intends to present to his dark master.
Primeval Dawn's script was begun by Bob Forward, and continued by Simon Furman; the story was illustrated by Dan Khanna and Makoto Ono.
