Publisher's Summary

On the morning of 22 September 2006, Tegan woke up. She was expecting to spend the day relaxing at home and, that evening, tolerate a party thrown to celebrate her 46th birthday.

But things don't always go as expected ­ it's been over twenty years since she chose to leave the Doctor. She's got a job, mates... a life.

Meanwhile her friend, Katherine Chambers, makes a decision that could change all their lives, and Tegan discovers that you can never really escape the past.



  • Tegan mentions having friends 'mowed down by Daleks', her possession by the Mara, and nearly being killed by Cybermen.
  • James Clarke is hinted to be an agent of The Forge.


  • The story states that something will cause the Doctor to lose some of the memories of his Fifth incarnation. What will cause this has not yet been revealed.
  • This is the one and only appearance of Janet Fielding in a Big Finish audio drama: Fielding has stated this is a one time occurrence. However, since the appearence, it was announced in the Big Finish Podcast (July) that Fielding will return to Big Finish in 2010, alongside The Fifth Doctor, Nyssa and Turlough
  • This audio drama is part of a loose trilogy encompassing: The Reaping, The Gathering and The Harvest.



The Gathering has a somewhat difficult timeline...

What does this information mean?


  1. After you speak with Merrek to start the quest, speak with the following people:
  2. Now you need to aquire the following (each item costs 1g 30s):
  3. I should find the cave. This is an instanced zone called The Gathering with an entrance/door located near the Wu camp at ( 970, 142, -472 ) /waypoint 970, 142, -472 in The Lesser Faydark.
  4. Wait for all the npcs to enter the cave and walk to the meditation mats. After all 3 have entered you will need to right click and "shoo" the spider, then you must chase the spider to the wall of the cave. Then, Merrek will enter the cave and walk to the mats.
  5. Listen to Merrek.
    • MAKE SURE you wait until Galabo reacts to the spider before shooing and chasing it or Merrek will not enter the cave and you will need to zone out and back in to start over.
  6. Now just sit and listen.


Before you complete the quest, and receive your cape, quickly LOOK UP! For a lovely sight.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

"With all of us may the Force be, and may the peace of this temple be ours, a place open to thought and speech, a realm of mutual respect, and a haven of shared noble purpose. Let us take these seats together, with no one above the others. May we work together, free from the restraints of ego and jealousy, at this gathering and all others to come."
―Jedi Council Members speaking the traditional oath during the Gathering

The Gathering was the name given to the assemblage of the full Jedi Council. As the Jedi Masters arrived in the High Council Chamber, they would remain standing until the full council was present. They than would proceed to speak the traditional mantra of the Council, before sitting.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

"I vill break you..."

Transformers, Beast Wars: The Gathering is a comic miniseries published in 2006 by IDW Publishing featuring characters from Beast Wars. It is the first major comic to feature Beast Wars characters. It was followed by The Ascending.

Transformers, Beast Wars: The Gathering issues:
#1 | #2 | #3 | #4



Predacon general Magmatron travels back to the era of the Beast Wars on prehistoric Earth. He's supposed to pick up where Ravage failed and retrieve the rogue Megatron, but his actual plan is to gather an army from the Axalon's stasis pods and return home to conquer Cybertron. However, Lio Convoy has inserted Razorbeast into the Predacon forces to stop him. Razorbeast manages to keep some of the awakened protoforms as Maximals and then stalls for time and tries to contact Cybertron. Finally, the new Maximals arrive in the nick of time and defeat the Predacon forces. Magmatron is trapped in a timeless void, while Razorbeast and all the other characters settle down in the past to wait and see if Cybertron got their call and will send help.


  • The cartoon suggests that most of the stasis pods were either damaged or destroyed, so their undamaged status is something of a minor retcon.
  • The writers of the series, in explaining Depth Charge as a Transmetal, said the Earth's atmosphere was permanently charged by the Planet Buster explosion, causing the process. In light of this (and even regardless of it) how the pods spew forth "standard", Transmetal and Transmetal 2 Transformers is a mystery.
  • K-9 and Noctorro are featured, even though Alsatians and brahmin bulls wouldn't exist for another few million years.

Items of note

  • The story for this series was a significant revamp of the scripts which Furman previously submitted to Dreamwave Productions for what was to be titled Shell Game. Selected artwork that Figueroa submitted for these original scripts was reused in the rewritten issues. Originally the plot was to tie into "Ain't No Rat".
  • This series takes place during the third season of the Beast Wars cartoon and disregards the finished and unfinished 3H Productions' Botcon/OTFCC comics. Both comics play around with this era and the non-show Beast Wars characters.
  • Razorbeast's decision not to fool with the timestream by eliminating Megatron is questionable at best, since Megatron was originally from his era and was himself interfering with time. However, it might be argued that any changes that Megatron was going to make in the past were already (from Razorbeast's perspective) part of history, so when Razorbeast went back, stopping Megatron then could theoretically have affected the specific future from which Razorbeast came. (Neither Ravage nor Depth Charge, who both traveled back in time shortly before Razorbeast did so, seemed to be concerned about this.) Yeah, time travel gives us a headache too.
  • The control art for the robot mode of the 6" Titanium Series Optimal Optimus can be found among Don Figueroa's concept work in the back of the collected volume.
  • The Gathering and The Ascending both feature numerous characters who were previously exclusive to Japan, including Halfshell, Magmatron and both Big Convoy and Lio Convoy.

Creative team

The Gathering was penned by Simon Furman and penciled by Don Figueroa, the same team that was due to produce the stillborn Beast Wars series for Dreamwave Productions.


The gang gets ready to retake the comic that is rightfully theirs.
