story so far:
the war between autobots and decepticons ended with the autobots victorious and the long-dead planet Cybertron restored to life. While countless non-combatants returned to the transformers’ homeworld, a rift emerged within the ranks of the autobots. those siding with Bumblebee stayed on Cybertron to build a new society, but rodimus took a crew aboard a starship to look for the long-lost guardians of the planet’s ancient culture. on take-off, rodimus’ ship appeared to explode—in reality, it was teleported to another part of space… but Bumblebee and the others on Cybertron believe the crew to be truly lost.
