Feral Scream Part 1
Megatron and Optimus open fire on each other. Terrorsaur and Cheetor evade their opposing leader's blasts until Megatron finally hits his target. Optimus falls out of the air, closely followed by Cheetor.
M: Protect that pod with your life, Terrorsaur! Your life!
As Terrorsaur opened his mouth to protest, Optimus returned and he and Megatron opened fire on each other again. Then one of Optimus' bolts hit Terrorsaur, causing him to drop the pod. It landed with a loud clank on the ground below. Terrorsaur shot down after the pod, followed by Cheetor. He recovered the pod, then shot up at Cheetor, causing him to crash land next to him. He chuckled, then rose back up toward Megatron. Cheetor transformed to robot mode.
C: Hang on, Big Bot! I'll give him something to fret about!
He takes out a missile launching rifle and aimed it up at Terrorsaur.
OP: No Cheetor!
Cheetor shoots the rifle. It misses Terrorsaur and hits Optimus instead. He falls out of the air to the ground.
C: Oh no! Optimus!
As Cheetor transforms back to beast mode and flies over to Optimus, Megatron laughs and retreats with Terrorsaur and the pod.
M: Encarved into this lofty peak, at Tempus 12. A noble birthplace! (To Terrorsaur) It is time!
Ter: Um, what are we cloning again? (Megatron glares at him) Never mind. (He opens the stasis pod) Guess I'll have to wait and see then.
M: The clone cells, Terrorsaur! Infuse them into their new host!
Ter: (Reluctantly) Yes, Megatron.
He pulls a switch and several metal claws penetrate the shimmering protoform inside the pod.
M: Install the Transmetal driver.
Terrorsaur drives his hover board to the top of the machine and installs a glowing red sphere into it.
Megatron holds out the other half of Rampage's spark.
M: And now, I bequeath you, half a spark! From the very core of a nightmare!
Something shot out of the protoform and grabbed the spark from Megatron's hand.
M: Ah! Hungry for life, yessss. Ready!
Terrorsaur pressed switches and buttons randomly.
M: Stand by!
Terrorsaur pressed a final button and the protoform glowed as lightning struck the top of the machine. M: From the tempest fury! The sparking lights! Hahahahahaha! To sigh a new life! Transmetal 2 life!
Ter: Sheesh. What's with all the fancy talk? It's just another protoform.
M: Oh, it is far more than just that.
The machine flashes. Megatron covers his face with his arms until the new protoform steps forward on clawed feet.
M: Ahhhhhh, yessssss.
Dinobot 2 growled and looked around.
M: Welcome, yessss. Welcome, Transmetal 2 Dinobot! To a new body, a new mind, a new allegiance, to the Predacons!
Terrorsaur regarded the cloned Dinobot with disgust.
Ter: You cloned him? I've had enough of him to last me a long time, thank you very much.
M: You fool! Dinobot was one of my best lieutenants. Now, he is back and, most importantly, under my control!
Ter: I still don't like him.
DC: (Emerging from behind some rocks) I agree. But then, I'm not crazy about any of you.
M: Ah, we have a guest. A stirring opportunity to, ah, 'ahem', test your metalment, Dinobot.
DC: And to think I was wondering who to shoot first.
He fired at Megatron and Terrorsaur, who are knocked backward. Dinobot lunged at Depthcharge.
Feral Scream Part 2
M: Hmmm. That sound. I've heard it before. (He looks at his view screen) Well, someone is out for a little moonlight stroll. At Mach 2. And that someone, (Touches the scratch marks on his chest plate) is familiar. Zoom in and magnify!
The image zoomed in to show a Transmetal 2 Cheetor.
M: A Transmetal 2! As I suspected. That meddling feline destroyed my system and improved himself in the process!
Ter: (Looking over at Dinobot) I don't think I'd call that an improvement.
Dinobot growls menacingly at him.
M: That creature is mine!
Grabs Terrorsaur and brings him face to face with him.
M: Bring him in!
Terrorsaur and Dinobot search the jungle and stop at a cave entrance.
Ter: Raaawk! He's here! I can detect his unnatural Transmetal scent. (Dinobot growls threateningly) Oh, don't be so dramatic. You know that I didn't mean you. By Primus, he hasn't changed at all!
D2: I will subdue and retrieve the target.
He transforms to robot mode and steps forward.
Ter: (Stepping in front of him) What do you think you're doing? I'm in charge here!
D2: Are you? Can Megatron confirm that?
Ter: We still need a plan.
D2: I am the plan.
Shaking his head, Terrorsaur follows Dinobot into the cave. It was deserted.
Ter: He's not here.
D2: (Nodding) Target has fled, for now.
Optimus sees something glowing in the trees aiming at them.
OP: Cheetor! Look out!
A laser shot out of the foliage and Optimus falls down.
C: Big Bot! Nooo! No! Optimus!
He gasped as his body glowed and mutated around him.
From behind the leaves, Terrorsaur and Dinobot watch him convulsing.
Ter: What is happening to him?
D2: That is not the priority. Take him now.
Ter: (Sarcastically) But I thought you were the plan?
D2: Do it!
Terrorsaur sighed, then emerged out of the leaves just as Cheetor seemed to explode, shattering his old body and becoming the feral looking Transmetal 2 he was before. Terrorsaur stopped abruptly.
OP: Cheetor! Watch out for the other bot!
Cheetor's new gun flipped off his back into his hand.
C: Which bot? Oh, you mean this bot right here?
He aimed his gun behind him casually and shot Terrorsaur point blank in the face.
Go with the Flow
Terrorsaur laughed with delight as he saw the unguarded human female below him.
Ter: Well, well. This must be my lucky day! Beast mode!
Transforming to beast mode, he swooped down and grabbed the protohuman in his claws.
C: Una! No!
Inferno shot Cheetor several times, causing him to fall down. When Depthcharge arrived, Terrorsaur and Inferno retreated with their captive.
Terrorsaur struggled to hold on to the protohuman and keep up with Inferno at the same time. She began to whack at him with a rock attached to a stick. It didn't hurt him, but it irritated him a great deal.
Ter: Urraaaak! Terrorsaur to Megatron! We have the female human, but there's a problem!
M: She'd better not be injured.
Ter: No, she won't stop hitting me!
M: She's primitive. What else do you expect? Well, make sure she arrives safely. Megatron out.
Ter: No! Argh!
He and Inferno fly into the mountain where they are building the Disrupter Ray. He roughly shoved Una at Megatron.
Ter: Now I understand why we hate humans.
M: Get over yourself. And get back to work.
M: Terrorsaur! You will be sub-commander for this mission. Dispose of the sentry and draw out Optimus Primal. We will follow.
Ter: (Holding a huge missile in his arms) I'll blow them out of this universe!
He soars down to engage the sentry, Silverbolt.
M: Yes. I'm certain you will.
The other Predacons chuckle behind him.
The missile knocks Silverbolt off his perch outside the blast doors guarding the Maximal base and he lands hard on the ground.
Ter: Haha! It'll take you days to recover from that!
Then Optimus Primal, Rattrap, and Cheetor emerge outside.
Ter: Prepare to meet your destroyer Primal! (He paused and looked around) Megatron? (Optimus looks around too, then raises an eye to Terrorsaur) Slag.
Terrprsaur soars away before Optimus can do anything.
Optimus, sounding oddly like Quickstrike, is holding Blackarachnia.
B: What's gotten into you?
M: (Approaching with Terrorsaur, Inferno, Rampage, and Dinobot) Ah, what's gotten into him, indeed. I'm glad you finally made it. We've been waiting for you.
B: Grape face.
OP/Q: Surprise, Sugarbot!
B: Y-your voice!
OP/Q: Heha! Couldn't play the monkey forever little darling.
Then something hovered down next to her: Quickstrike inside a miniature replica of Optimus's body, which he was using to control Optimus.
OP/Q: How about a little kiss, sugarbot?
As Quickstrike raised the arm on his miniature suit, Optimus raised his arm too, bringing Blackarachnia up to his face.
B: Let go of me you-!
Blackarachnia struggled to get free, then saw the other Maximals beaten and locked in a cage.
M: Hrm. Six little Maximals. (Chuckles) Well, I've almost collected the whole set!
He burst out laughing.
Ter: (To Blackarachnia) You know, it's funny; remembering all those times you dissed the Maximals, and now you've gone and become one of them. How ironically appropriate.
M: Rampage, see to the traitor.
OP/Q: But boss . . . you said!
M: Silence fool! I need you for more important matters.
He lowered the Transmetal 2 arachnid to the ground.
M: Dinobot, Terrorsaur; Depthcharge is still out there somewhere. Find and dispose of him.
Ter: Ugh. Do I have to work with him?
Before Megatron can answer, Blackarachnia makes a bid for freedom. Rampage jumped into the air, transforming to his massive Transmetal crab mode, and grabbed her in one of his claws.
Ram: Uh, uh, uh, uh.
M: Inferno, (Gesturing at the captured Maximals) guard our guests.
I: As you command, Royalty.
M: The Ark, awaits!
Nemesis Part 1
I: The royalty will triumph! All we need is a new colony, and I shall find it.
Ter: Yeah right. All you're good at is being Megatron's lap dog.
I: I am a soldier, not a dog!
Ter: (To Quickstrike) Can you believe this guy?
Q: I always said he talked peculiar.
M: (Not listening) A new base, yessss. (To Inferno) Take Terrorsaur and Quickstrike, sub-commander. See what you can locate.
I: At once, my Queen!
I: (Indicating a protohuman camp) There! That will be our new colony.
Q: Ewww. I don't wanna move in there! Got all them hairy critters in it! Un . . . unless . . . unless you mean, we's gonna slag 'em! Oh! Oh! Please tell me that's what you're planning!
I: The Royalty demands a new colony and we shall take it, by force!
Ter: Is a human camp really the best you can do?
Q: You got any better ideas?
Ter: Well, no. But surely we can find someplace better.
Inferno and Quickstrike looked at each other.
I: I suppose we could build a new colony.
Q: Build one? Out of what? Rocks an' wood? You're kiddin' me!
I: No! We could burrow under the ground and construct a . . .
Ter: We're not ants, Inferno! Think realistically.
I: I could build it!
Q: How about this: We slag those critters anyways, then build that underground base!
Ter: We are not living underground!
Q: But let's just slag those things anyways!
I: You are losing sight of the objective, Quickstrike. We need to find a new colony.
Ter: (Giving up) You know what? Fine. Let's take the human camp then. We're just wasting time here.
Q: Now you're talking! Haha!
I: For the glory of the Royalty!
Quickstrike rushed out into the village. Inferno and Terrorsaur followed him.
Nemesis Part 2
Ter: The humans are retreating. We've got them now!
Q: Yee haw! Little runts never stood a chance! Hahaha! Like shootin' protoforms in a stasis pod!
I: The Royalty will be pleased! The new colony is ours! Ready for . . . huh?
Inferno looks up to see one of the remaining humans raising an axe. As he raises his gun at the human, the ground shakes. He, Quickstrike, and Terrorsaur look around in confusion and see a huge war ship hovering in front of them.
Ter: What is that?
I: The Royalty! My Queen! (Waving his arms around) We're down here!
Q: Oh, I don't like the looks of this!
Then the ship fires and all three of them are consumed by flames.
So, in my opinion, the answer to how much the war would have changed would be "Not much". I believe that the seasonal arcs would have stayed the same (The Vok, the attempt by Megatron to destroy the Autobots, the discovery of the Nemesis, etc.). Waspinator didn't have a majorly effective role in the show except being comic relief, so therefore Terrorsaur would have had a similarly small, yet noticeable role in the show until the very end (Except, unlike Waspinator, he would have died, I am more than positive). The only differences with Terrorsaur's presence would, I believe, have been that Dinobot and Terrorsaur's rivalry would have continued up until Dinobt's death, and the creation of Dinobot's clone (with whom Terrorsaur would have had a similar rivalry with), and, obviously, that Terrorsaur took over the Metal Hunter weapon instead of Megatron.
I hope you enjoyed this possible version of the show that never was (F.Y.I, I will not be doing a Beast Machines sequel because: I never liked BM, and since Terrorsaur would have died in Nemesis Part 2, he would not have been involved in BM anyway. As far as Waspinator's role, let's just say that Thrust could have been a new undiscovered Maximal character in this scenario).
