In part one, the two warring Transformer armies, the Autobots and the Decepticons, crash-land on a prehistoric Earth. Four million years later in 2005 A.D., they are reactivated by a volcano.

Meanwhile, the Decepticons endeavor to gut Earth of its resources in order to create precious energon cubes, which will enable the villains to take over not only Cybertron but the rest of the Universe. Things take a potentially disastrous turn when Optimus Prime is seriously injured while again attempting to save the humans.

The first of the weekly Transformers episodes (after the three-chapter pilot "More Than Meets the Eye"), "Transport to Oblivion" was originally seen in America on October 6, 1984. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
