and they cannot remain a secret
In September of 2009, after the Fallen’s worldwide broadcast and the destruction of one of the world’s most well known landmarks, the United States government could no longer hide the presence of the Transformers from the public. At a meeting of the United Nations, with camera crews from different countries all around the world covering the event, the Autobots were revealed to the world. Needless to say, many reacted with fear and hostility towards the first alien contacts of Earth. Though when nineteen year old Sam Witwicky stood up to share how he had met the Autobots, some came to understand, while others continued to remain hostile.
In light of this revelation, two groups were formed: the no-bots and the pro-bots. Despite reassurances from the government, many people joined the no-bot movement in an attempt to get the Autobots expelled from Earth. The no-bots, formed by widower Abigail Warner, whose husband was one of those killed at the battle of Egypt. With where her husband worked and who with finally revealed, she blamed them. If they had just left Earth after their All Spark thingamajig was destroyed, her husband would still be alive. In his memory, she leads the group in the effort for the Autobots to be removed from the planet. Though the no-bot movement does have some opposition, led by none other than former secretary of defense John Keller. He knows that the Autobots are good and travels around the country trying to convince people that the Autobots are not the monsters that the no-bot members believe them to be.
Even with all this tension, life begins to move on for Sam Witwicky, though now thingshave changed drastically. He returned to Princeton University two weeks after the UN broadcast and found things to be vastly different. He was now the center of attention on campus, but thankfully he has Mikaela and Bumblebee there to pull him away when the attention gets to be too much. But aside from a busy school schedule, Sam now has other duties to perform for when he reached to pick up the Matrix of Leadership, it flared to life at his touch. That can only mean one thing, Optimus is no longer the only Prime. The Matrix only reacts to the touch of a Prime and after being revived by the ancient Primes in Egypt, Sam is one. What does this mean for him? It means that he is now an ambassador between the humans and the Autobots and the government has officially awarded him the title of liaison, which means he is pulled out of school every so often.
As for the Decepticons, for now they are quiet, which has the Autobots and members of N.E.S.T. worried. The quiet is the calm before the storm, for while Magatron and his forces are repaired, they are planning something. What is unknown, but when it happens, what side will you be on? The pro-bot movement with John Keller? Or will you follow the no-bot movement in an effort to get the Autobots to leave the planet? Lines will be drawn. Which side of this new divide will you chose?
