An alternative future where Klingons have overrun Federation space may hinge on Omega Squad's first flight aboard a runabout. The cadets are tracked by First Cadre, a Klingon cadet squadron. Commander Zund is injured when the Klingons attack. Omega Squad tricks their opponents into switching ships, but both vessels are forced down on a nearby planet. Pava stands guard duty and encounters an old friend and perhaps a new enemy.

From Muppet Wiki

War and Peace is an epic novel by Leo Tolstoy, first published from 1865 to 1869 in Russki Vestnik, which tells the story of Russian society during the Napoleonic Era. It is usually described as one of Tolstoy's two major masterpieces (the other being Anna Karenina) as well as one of the world's greatest novels.

The novel tells the story of a number of aristocratic families (particularly the Bezukhovs, the Bolkonskis, and the Rostovs) and the entanglements of their personal lives with the history of 1805–1813, specifically Napoleon's invasion of Russia. As events proceed, Tolstoy systematically denies his subjects any significant free choice: the onward roll of history determines happiness and tragedy alike.

  • The Muppets began a dramatization of the epic novel in the first episode of The Jim Henson Hour, starting with Part One: War. In this brief but gripping drama, a number of soldiers from various wartime eras hit each other with clubs until they were all exhausted.

Specifics: TPB cover


War and Peace is a six-part miniseries published by Dreamwave Productions, set in the main G1 Dreamwave continuity and following up on the successful Prime Directive miniseries. The plot follows the Earth-bound Transformers as they return to Cybertron, where Shockwave has united the Transformers.

Overview

An Autobot-Decepticon battle on Earth ends when Shockwave arrives and announces that the war is over. Most of the Earthen Transformers are eventually captured and returned to Cybertron, where both factions are united under Shockwave's ostensibly peaceful banner. But the Decepticon leader's machinations run deep, and soon open war emerges again.

The series seems to repudiate some of the perceived mistakes made by its economically successful but oft-criticized predecessor. An early sub-plot with Optimus Prime having some kind of visions appeared in previews, but was dropped. Wheeljack's somewhat perfunctory "death" is retconned as a near-miss, and the overall story veers in a completely different direction.

While not as economically successful as Prime Directive, sales were still high enough to lead to an ongoing series.

Items of note

  • The series was originally to be penned by Chris Sarracini, who wrote the previous volume. When "Brad Mick" came on board, he took the book in a different direction.
  • War and Peace contains many references to 1986's The Transformers: The MovieStarscream throws an injured Megatron out into space; Scourge, Ultra Magnus, Hot Rod, Springer, Kup, Blurr, Arcee, Wheelie and the Sharkticons are featured; the Matrix and Unicron are seen; even Wreck-Gar makes an appearance in the epilogue.
  • The series also makes reference to the cartoon with Shockwave's capture of Alpha Trion and Vector Sigma.
  • A "Volume 2 preview" was planned, but did not see print until the trade paperback volume was published. It was based on the plot planned by Sarracini, with a shuttle craft crashed in the ocean and Prime passing out from some kind of vision.

Creative team

The series was written by James McDonough under his pen name of "Brad Mick", and penciled by Pat Lee and Edwin Garcia.
