      Beast Wars - Transmutate is a story that is sad and most certainly different. I like it for a couple of reasons.

      For one, it offers a subliminal commentary on how that which is different is often the source of disgust and sometimes the source of feelings that desire to see that something destroyed or killed.

      In this episode, a malfunctioning stasis pod causes the Transformer that emerges from it to be disfigured and lacking the ability to transform and


      properly understand and communicate.

      It is of limited intelligence and capability, yet it also demonstrates feelings and emotions, and while it cannot understand complexities, it does understand the simple, basic and perhaps most important things about life, like friendship.

      Megatron wants it destroyed as the he and the Predicons are the ones to locate it first.

      Rampage however, objects and develops an affinity for the new Transformer.

      For the first time since Rampage’s introduction, the character is fleshed out and ...


      • given depth and real exposure.

        Silverbolt is one of the Maximal’s that tries to win the newcomer over.

        This episode deals with the issues of cruelty and ridicule, on both the Predicons and Maximals part toward something that is different, but also, compassion, on the part of one Predicon and a few Maximals.

        This episode ends in tragedy, much like in real life sometimes, and the something that is unique and special is extinguished.

        This episode also shows how hatred

        and war often results in the death of those that are innocent and hold a much simpler view of the world: not to fight.

        It is an episode that speaks volumes and does so in a way that works, in part because the script is a solid one, but also, because the voice actors continue to deliver stellar performances.

        I applaud the writers for doing an episode like this and it is yet another strong episode in a very strong season.
