In this column,
we provde a plot summary and comments about some of the most popular
Transformers shows ever to grace our televisions! Unlike the
summaries we give for the G1 TF shows on other sections of unicron.com,
here we'll only provide our 'grade' for the episode's plot, as the
animation in the series is very consistent from episode to episode.
That is, we think it's all pretty outstanding!
The second season of Beast Wars is, by far my favorite season of any Transformers cartoons ever. It consisted of only 13 episodes but the authors, Bob Forward and Larry DiTillio made every one count! Here they are: (Much, but not all of these plot summaries are taken from the web site of BMachines story editor Bob Skir.)

Beast Wars Second takes place after the Beast Wars cartoon, but before Beast Machines (Beast Wars Return). It also takes place before both Beast Wars: The Gathering and Beast Wars: The Ascending comic series. It does not take place in this era, nor does it take place in the past as the original Beast Wars does. It takes place solely in the future that the Beast Wars cast came from.
During the time of the Pax Cybertronia, a treaty that kept
the Predacons in check, Lio Convoy amassed a secret squad to stand guard in case
of Predacon activity. Galvatron and Megastorm, two brothers, also pieced
together a group of Predacons in search of energy sources. The planet Gaia was
full of energy and would be the host of these "second" Beast Wars.
