The Autobots are trying to decide on a new leader to replace the deceased Optimus Prime. The Dinobot leader Grimlock offers himself for the position, but is turned down.
A professor of paleontology leads a group of students to investigate footprints left by the Dinobots. They encounter Trypticon, a powerful Decepticon sent from Cybertron to attack the Autobots. After watching the resulting slaughter from afar for a while, the Dinobots launch a counter attack.

"Fools! Optimus Prime's way led to his destruction! He worried about protecting weakling humans! He avoided fighting the Decepticons openly, to prevent damaging this miserable planet! Optimus Prime's way stinks! My way will be better!" - Grimlock
