Circling the star Alpha Centauri, ages ago, was a planet unlike any other in the heavens -- Cybertron. No rock or soil or sand contributed to it's bizarre geography, it's content was entirely -- mechanical. Yet, life had evolved here, it had grown and adapted and thrived in it's environment remarkably well. The planet's dominant lifeform - the Autobots, had created a mechanical paradise, where each Autobot went about his pursuits in peace and prosperity. But every paradise has it's serpent... And on this world it was Megatron, commander of those who called themselves -- the Decepticons!
