The Binaltech Story (so far)

compiled by Nevermore

Preliminary notes: This is meant as a more streamlined summary of the BT story with only the things that are important for the story progress and/or are meant as G1 nods. Story summarized in chronolocial order, not in the order the various pieces of information were published inside the respective story chapters and character bios.

In cases of doubt, the spelling of names has been taken from the Cartoon Bible where available.

According to the author, Hirofumi Ichikawa, the BT story is supposed to fit in between "Scramble City" and TF:TM. Originally, Ichikawa said he was trying to make everything fit in before the movie and would refrain from doing any drastic changes that can't be undone later on (i.e. after the end of the "Binaltech" saga, whenever that's going to happen). Beginning with Laserwave's story chapter, the story started to diverge drastically from the original TF:TM timeline, but even that is apparently going to be undone later on. Furthermore, even though Ravage's story chapter mentions the government organization I.I.I. ("Triple-I") which only existed in the Marvel G1 comics, Ichikawa stated that this was supposed to be "Triple-I's counterpart from the cartoon's universe which was never mentioned onscreen, and which might or might not have been led by Walter Barnett".

Any references to real-life events leading to the toys ending up the way they did (color scheme choices, name/identity changes etc.), or nods to particular requests on the respective car manufacturers' behalf (Meister's red doppelganger being nicknamed "Zoom-Zoom"; Overdrive providing "humanitarian" services; etc.), have explicity been included only because the author believed that leaving them out would make the story seem "incomplete". At no point has Ichikawa ever been requested by a car manufacturer to include certain details into his story.

Ichikawa already confirmed that he writes the story with a maximum of 2-3 upcoming releases in mind, therefore the Insecticon Bombshell being mentioned in Dead End's story chapter does not automatically indicate that there will be a Binaltech version of Bombshell coming up in the near future. Regarding Black Widow (formerly "Wildrider"; the Binaltech counterpart of Alternators Decepticharge which was indefinitely postponed after numerous changes to the original plans for releasing the toy in Japan), Ichikawa stated that he already dropped hints of her impending arrival in the story chapters for Overdrive and Prowl, but since she was postponed, those hints are now meaningless.

Lastly, for those wondering about the BTA (Binaltech Asterisk) toys: Unlike the regular BTs, Ichikawa is not writing the stories for the BTAs, which, in trying to appeal to Takara's intended target audience for those toys, all tell of the (totally unrelated) misadventures of a clutzy girl and her car, which just happens to be a Transformer (and is lacking any kind of personality whatsoever).



In the year 2003, over a decade after the end of season 2 of the G1 cartoon, humans and Autobots have formed an alliance. The Earth Defense Command (EDC, from G1 season 3) has been formed, construction of Autobot City ("Cybertron City" in Japan; first seen in Transformers: The Movie) has begun, humans are about to make their first steps into outer space, starting with a colony on the moon (the Lunar Colony was originally mentioned in the G1 season 3 episode "Five Faces of Darkness, Part 2"; in the original script of that episode, there was a line that was cut from the final episode which established the colony as having existed since 1997).

Meanwhile, Megatron had launched an all-out war on Cybertron, and many Autobot warriors had left the Earth in order to prevent him from taking over their home planet. However, some Autobots, led by Ultra Magnus, decided to stay back on Earth in order to protect the planet and Autobot City.

All of a sudden, the Combaticon Swindle unleashed a modified version of the Cosmic Rust (from the G1 season 2 episode "Cosmic Rust") on the Autobots. While a few of them, including Jazz (Meister) and Ultra Magnus, were spared from the effects of the virus, most of the Earth-bound Autobots, among them Smokescreen, Hound, Tracks, Sideswipe (Lambor/Side Swipe), Bluestreak (Streak/Silverstreak), Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker, were damaged beyond repair.

In order to counter the new Decepticon threat, the EDC launched an emergency plan and initiated the long-planned project "Binaltech". Supervised by the Autobots' mother computer Teletraan-1 (from G1 season 1 and 2; the term "mother computer" is taken from the G1 cartoon's original show bible), car manufacturers and research facilities around the world started to build new bodies for the fallen Autobot warriors that combined the latest of Earth's and Cybertron's technologies. The Autobots' primary power sources are electro-cells (originally introduced in the G1 season 2 episode "Traitor").

The first Autobot to be rebuilt in a new Binaltech body was Bluestreak, but due to some problems with an unstable personality, the EDC Inspection Bureau had him undergo a variety of tests until they gave him clearance to return to active duty. Next up were: Smokescreen, in a new body built by Fuji Heavy Industries, Inc. and STi (Subaru Tecnica International); Sideswipe, in a new body built by the Daimler-Chrysler Corporation's PVO-Team (Performance Vehicle Operations), whose main operating computer is a "TORQ 3000" quantum processor developed by Quantum Laboratories (from the G1 season 2 episode "Day of the Machines", where they created the super-computer TORQ III); Hound, who totally loves his new body built by Daimler-Chrysler and Hybrid Technologies Corporation ("High Technology Corporation" in Japan; Astoria's company from the G1 season 2 episode "The Girl Who Loved Powerglide") and views it as the first step towards his goal of becoming human himself one day; and Tracks, in a new body built by General Motors and DuPont (GM's former parent company), which now provides him with the ability to change his body color from yellow to blue.

The newly rebuilt Binaltech Autobots were able to repel the Decepticon attack, severely damage some of them and eventually drive them off the planet. In the meantime, however, an evil underground organization, calling itself the "Concurrence", was formed. With prominent members such as Count von Rani (aka Iron Klaw from G.I. Joe Extreme) and General Garrison Kreiger (aka General Blitz from "Sgt. Savage and his Screaming Eagles") and financially backed up by Lord Chumley (from the G1 season 2 episode "Prime Target") and Shawn Berger Jr. (from the G1 season 2 two-parter "Megatron's Master Plan"), among others, they sought to put a rift between the human/Autobot alliance.

Shortly afterwards, Starscream, from a secret staging ground, contacted his former ally Dr. Arkeville (from the G1 season 1 three-parter "The Ultimate Doom" and the follow-up episode "Countdown to Extinction"), who was also a member of the Concurrence, and the two of them agreed to form an alliance. Arkeville combined his own "hypnochip" (also from "The Ultimate Doom") with the Insecticon Bombshell's cerebro-shells and thus managed to secretly bring several facilities participating in the Binaltech Project under his control, in order to provide the damaged Decepticon warriors with new bodies as well.

Therefore, while Symultech Industries (originally mentioned in the G1 season 2 episode "Trans-Europe Express") believed they were rebuilding Sunstreaker, they actually built a new body for Dead End, who can no longer combine with the other Stunticons into Menasor in this form and now fears that he might have to revert to his old body some day. Likewise, the body the Central City Institute of Technology (Central City is a fictious city from the G1 season 2 two-parter "Megatron's Master Plan") had intended for Trailbreaker (even including a force field projector ["force barrier emitter" in Japan], which now had to be left offline since it was never finished) ended up as the new body of Swindle, who had managed to put himself on top of the waiting list of Decepticons to receive a Binaltech upgrade, even though other Decepticons were more severely damaged, and now can't merge with the other Combaticons into Bruticus anymore either.

Since the EDC deleted the registration for the BT units the Decepticons had acquired, they couldn't access electro-cell recharge facilities anymore (the "recharge facilities" refer to the recharging chambers from the G1 season 2 episode "Attack of the Autobots"), thus they used stabilized "exponential generators" (Dr. Arkeville's invention from "Countdown to Extinction") as their new primary power sources instead.

In order to counter the threat posed by the Decepticons' infiltration of the project and their acquisition of the Binaltech technology, the Autobots and the EDC quickly launched a number of counteroffensives:

The first of them was a sub-project, initiated by the EDC's Advanced Technologies Development Bureau, named "Genetronic Translink" (GT), headed by the Autobots' old associate Chip Chase (from G1 season 1 and 2). In order to enable a single Autobot to control several Binaltech bodies at once, the GT technology involved an Autobots' "laser core" (mentioned in the G1 season 1 episode "Divide and Conquer" and in the season 2 episode "The Autobot Run"; first seen in the G1 season 2 episode "Starscream's Brigade", albeit referred to as "personality component" this time), which is the basis of his personality, being stored in "subspace" (a popular concept among fans used to explain various aspects of Transformers technology) and from there controlling the individual robot units via "Translink ports". The first Autobot to test the new technology was Smokescreen, who, now as Smokescreen GT, can operate up to four robot bodies at once, although this amount of active units is saved as a last resort for criticial situations.

The second Autobot to use the GT technology was Jazz, who had originally not been affected by the Cosmic Rust. Regardless, he agreed to have his brain transferred into a new body (built by the Mazda Corporation) anyways in order to carry out secret operations. Using the GT technology, Jazz can also remote-control a red duplicate of himself he nicknamed "Zoom-Zoom". Zoom-Zoom isn't a fully sentient individual yet, but Jazz has already started to give him dancing lessons whenever time permits. Jazz himself, in turn, participated in a secret investigation code-named "Operation: Carwash", intended to uncover the extent of the Decepticons' infiltration of the Binaltech Project.

Meanwhile, the EDC's top agent, Dashiell R. Faireborn (better known as Flint from G.I. Joe, now also the father to EDC agent Marissa Faireborn from G1 season 3), infiltrated the Concurrence's secret headquarters in the Lunar Colony and found out the truth about the Concurrence's agenda, the involvement of von Rani, Kreiger, Chumley and Berger, and also about Arkeville's brainwashing activities. After confirming that no member of the BT project was actually working for the Concurrence, he managed to send out a message to Ultra Magnus in Autobot City, advising him to find a way to neutralize the effects of the brainwashing. After finishing his transmission, Faireborn was forced to flee in order not to get caught by the enemy. His fate is still unclear at this point.

At the same time, on Cybertron, the war between Optimus Prime's Autobots and Megatron's Decepticons was in full force when the Decepticons used some primitive telepathic aliens known as the "Unleasher" (NOT a G1 or other obscure reference - Hirofumi Ichikawa confirmed they are entirely his own creation) in order to launch a psychic attack on the Autobots. The attack affected all "Primitives" (first identified as such in the G1 season 3 episode "Call of the Primitives") and turned the Dinobots into rampaging savages.

After the Autobots had found themselves forced to take their comrades out of commission, Grimlock regained consciousness and agreed to do anything in order to be able to return to the battlefield. Thus, Wheeljack rushed off to Earth and had Grimlock's brain being transferred into a new body (built by the Ford Company's Specialized Car Development Team) that combined all the improvements of the previous Binaltech bodies, thus making him the "ultimate" Binaltech warrior. Even though Grimlock, now with the rank of a Lieutenant Commander (the same function the "Pretender Classic" version of Grimlock, which was only released by Hasbro, also had before), hated his new body from the first minute and took it out on the Ford developers even while still being rebuilt, he decided to make the best of his situation and to continue fighting alongside his fellow Autobots.

Meanwhile, some former staffers of the now defunct "I.I.I." (Intelligence and Information Institute aka "Triple-I", originally introduced in Transformers #15 by Marvel USA, disbanded prior to Transformers #68, also by Marvel USA) discovered that a capsule they had excavated from a prehistoric layer years ago, dubbed the "Schrödinger's Box" (Erwin Schrödinger was a physician who postulated the popular paradox known as "Schrödinger's Cat", which involved - in theory - a cat being put inside a box together with a radioactive isotope; prior to reopening the box, it would be impossible to determine whether the cat is still alive or has died, therefore the cat is technically alive and dead at the same time), was actually a flight recorder from future Ravage's ship (from the three-part Beast Wars season 2 episode "The Agenda") that contained the memories and personality of X-9 aka Ravage.

The former I.I.I. staffers found a way to communicate with Ravage and reached an agreement to give him a new body in exchange for technology and knowledge of the future. Setting up a fake BT project, they built a new body for Ravage. In order to bring him truly back to life (Ravage had died in "The Agenda"), they took the original, present day Ravage (Jaguar) who conveniently happened to be in EDC custody at that time, forced him to shrink down into cassette mode and stored him, in stasis lock, inside the audio unit on Binaltech Ravage's dashboard, thereby providing the latter with a "Spark" (a Transformer's equivalent to a human "soul", first introduced in the Beast Wars season 1 episode "The Spark"). Although they removed all armaments and installed several layers of fail-safe systems, Ravage was able to overcome them with the help of his extremely advanced technological knowledge and equip himself with upgraded weaponry systems. Realizing the future hadn't changed at all, he ingored the agreement, killed those who had brought him back to life and now embarks on a mission to change history, seeking Decepticons forever to be the ruling faction.

In the meantime, Honda's Wako Basic Technology Research Center, which indeed already has experience in developing humanoid robots (see here), had managed to rebuild the Omnibot Overdrive, whose central processing unit had been severely damaged. Equipped with an "Omni-Blaster" (a nod to the old team name of the Omnibots), which incorporates the properties of his three former weapons, as well as a ballistic shield made of Durabyllium (a fictious metal that was mentioned in the tech specs for the Technobot Nosecone and the Pretender Beast Catilla as well as in the the Seacon Snaptrap's Transformers Universe profile), Overdrive primarily serves as a tactician for the Earth/Cybertron alliance, his armaments in vehicle mode (in his Omnibot incarnation, he was equipped with an "attack mode" in vehicle mode) had been removed (a nod towards the removal of the gun barrel Honda had demanded for the US version of the toy) as a consequence of the contractually imposed restrictions regarding humanitarian support (Overdrive's primary function in battle). There are several prototypes of Overdrive's body in existence (a nod towards Hasbro's "Windcharger" version), all of which are part of Wheeljack's "Body Shop" project (similar to the "Body Shop" from Transformers #281 by Marvel UK).

Meanwhile, Ravage had secretly launched his attempts to alter the future by commiting a series of sabotage acts. However, Overdrive, who had experience in dimensional travels (a nod to an ad from an old Hasbro catalog which urged fans to order the Omnibots, which were exclusively available via mail-order, as soon as possible, lest they would "fight on in another universe") using a quantum dial, as well as an improved perception for all sorts of disturbances in the flow of time, soon noticed the familiar reality fluxes during one of these incidents. He promptly warned the Earth/Cybertron alliance that someone from outside the regular time stream was apparently trying to alter history.

However, Ravage managed to hijack Wheeljack's shuttle on its way back to Cybertron and showed Wheeljack a brief glimpse of his own future, including the deaths of Brawn, Prowl, Windcharger and Wheeljack himself (as seen in Transformers: The Movie). While Wheeljack barely managed to escape, Ravage arrived on Cybertron, where he dug out the remnants of Shockwave's "Kronosphere" (from the G1 season 2 episode "War Dawn") and used it to make the huge bulk of Megatron's Decepticon army, who were on the verge of delivering the final blow on the Autobots and driving them off Cybertron, disappear in a rift in the space-time continuum. Following this, Optimus Prime and his Autobots were easily able to defeat the remaining Decepticons and regain control of their home planet. This, however, was just what Ravage had intended - after all, he knew that Unicron would be attacking Cybertron in the near future, causing a massacre among the Transformers (as seen in Transformers: The Movie). Ravage now hoped that the Autobots would have to deal with Unicron on their own that way, and subsequently, the returned Megatron would have an easy time finishing off the Autobots after they had been severly decimated in the battle against Unicron.

Since Ravage needed a leader for the remaining Decepticon forces, he used a so-called "Transmuter" (a nod to the G.I. Joe episode "Worlds Without End, Part 1") to create a new body for Shockwave (Laserwave), whose body had been destroyed over the course of these events, out of an ordinary Mazda RX-8 (exactly the same way Starscream had created the Combaticons' new bodies in the G1 season 2 episode "Starscream's Brigade") which was then equipped with Shockwave's personality component (a term that was established in "Starscream's Brigade" and was also used in the G1 season 2 episode "B.O.T."). In his new body, Shockwave is able to project up to five holographic duplicates of himself to any location on the planet (an ability that was originally mentioned in the G1 cartoon's original show bible).

Meanwhile, Wheeljack saw himself faced with the dilemma of thwarting Ravage's plans and correcting history, which in turn would mean death to him and many of his comrades. Hoping for a way out, he contacted Chip Chase on Earth. In his new Binaltech body, Wheeljack, now with the function "Tactical Diversion" (the same function the "Action Master" version of Wheeljack, which was only released by Hasbro, also had before), is now equipped with the "GT" system as part of the "Body Shop" project which enables him to control several doubles of himself: The "Alpha Unit" is the original G1 Wheeljack body with an added "GT" system, the "Beta Unit" is using the Binaltech body built by Ford, and virtually nothing is know yet about the ominous "Omega Unit". The "Beta Unit" is equipped with a laser-strafer rifle (first mentioned in Action Master Wheeljack's tech spec) and a Cryo-Sword, which can generate an "Immobilizer field" (a nod to Wheeljack's title-giving invention from the G1 season 2 episode "The Immobilizer").

The next body built by Honda as part of the "Body Shop" project had originally been intended to serve as a backup body for Prowl named "Prowl 2" (a nod to the Spychanger of the same name from the "Robots in Disguise" toyline), but during the attempt to save Prowl from his impending death using the "GT" technology, something went terribly wrong: When Shockwave and his Decepticons destroyed Prowl's original body while attacking his shuttle, his "laser core", the source of his personality, went lost in subspace. Since the Autobots were depending on Prowl, Chip Chase chose a desperate step: 20 years ago, he had temporarily remote-controlled a damaged Prowl using his own computer (as seen in the G1 season 1 episode "Roll for It"), and since Prowl's knowledge and personality had already been installed in the Binaltech body prepared for him, Chip promptly decided to upload his own mind into Prowl's Binaltech body. Prowl's new body is able to assume the police car patterns of police forces from around the world (which explains the differences between the Hasbro and the Takara version). The blue version, meanwhile, is a so-called "Generic Host Shell" (GHS) which is primarily kept in standby as an emergency backup body for Prowl, but if necessary, it can also serve as a secondary body for other Autobots such as Bluestreak or Tracks.

Shortly afterwards, a lightning strike operation conducted by Prowl and Overdrive resulted in the Autobots finally being able to capture Ravage. However, just at this time, Unicron appeared above Cybertron, and his ground troops killed countless soldiers who were trying to defend their headquarters. While Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus boarded a shuttle heading towards Unicron, Skids, who was the first Autobot who decided for a Binaltech upgrade on his own, without any particular reason, and who isn't accompanied by the standard "GT" clone bodies but instead can have his life core transferred to an external reception unit via a subspace channel in case of emergency, prepared to travel back in time using the temporal vortex on Dinobot Island (introduced in the G1 season 2 two-part cartoon episode "Dinobot Island") as part of the "Operation Distant Thunder", in order to prevent Ravage from altering the original course of history. However, just as he was about to do the jump, his sensors warned him that a squadron of Decepticons was approaching his position.
