It could be, but I think that might detract from the relic hunt and kinda come out of nowhere, but it's definitely plausible.
I don't see how it would detract from the relic hunt, i meant the sample is
the relic, because the ancients knew the formula
I doubt the relic would be a tank of synthetic energon. Why would they hide such a thing? It'd be like if archeologists discovered an old gas tank or an old soda cooler with the liquid still inside. Something like that wouldn't be hidden if they didn't want it found. It would instead be destroyed/used up/extinguished/exhausted/etc. and the formula itself would be hidden away.
^No, seeing as how they said synthetic energon could turn the tide of the war, it'd be more like a scientist nowadays finding a way to cost-effectively mass-produce an equivalent to gasoline, then realizing that if people start to fight over this it could get ugly, so he hides his findings
They might have hidden it right on the start of the war, because their main energy source was energon. In ""Stronger, Faster" they made it clear that people might have been working on ways to produce the formula during the war, but nothing worked. So maybe whoever was in charge destroyed all the samples, and sent the last one out in hopes that neither side would discover it, because it could turn the tide of the war
This is rampant speculation, i know. I'm not saying it's definitely this, im just saying it's a possibility
