Gaea

The planet Gaea

Gaea (ガイア Gaia), or Gaia, is post-apocalyptic Earth in the distant future. There is no indication as to how many years into the future it is, but all signs would indicate it's very far away, as most of mankind's structures have been completely destroyed and most of the planet has been grown-over with dense jungle. In other shows, it is a separate planet from Earth.

FictionEdit

Generation 1 cartoon continuityEdit

Beast Wars II cartoonEdit

While going through transwarp space, Lio Convoy and the Maximals, as well as Galvatron and the Predacons, landed on Gaea. Galvatron was drawn to Gaea due to the high levels of the powerful energy source known as Angolmois riddled throughout its surface. Lio Convoy, aware that the universe would be doomed if the Predacons got control of the Angolmois, stayed with the Maximals to fight them off.

While the Maximals chose bodies based on the local wildlife, the Predacons selected bodies based on the war machines of the planet's former inhabitants.

Eventually, Galvatron used his battle ship, the Nemesis, to suck all the Angolmois out of the planet. Thanks to the intervening of Lio Convoy, the Angolmois was sealed away in capsules and scattered across the cosmos before Galvatron could use it.

Beast Wars Neo cartoonEdit

After the disappearance of Lio Convoy and the Maximals, the Maximal Elders sent Big Convoy and his new recruits to investigate Gaea. They found Lio Convoy's black box, learned about the Angolmois capsules and set off to retrieve them.

As it turns out, the Angolmois energy was really the lifeforce of Unicron. After his destruction in 2005, Unicron's lifeforce raced through time and space and became trapped within Gaea.

Beast Wars II manga continuityEdit

Beast Wars II mangaEdit

Great Convoy at Maximal Army Central Headquarters sent Lio Convoy's team to Gaea to prevent the Angolmois energy from falling into the Predacons' hands.

Beast Wars Neo mangaEdit

The Convoy Council sent Big Convoy to Gaea as an instructor to train on Gaea five rookies: Longrack, Break, Stampy, Cohrada, and Heinrad. Because Big Convoy paid little attention to the rookies, Longrack persuaded the others that they should do their own training, starting with infiltrating the abandoned Galvaburg II. There, they encountered the Predacons Guiledart and Saberback, who were expecting an elite unit to come to the Galvaburg II. After the rookies were saved by Big Convoy, the Maximals found the mysterious Black Ball.

IDW Beast Wars comics Edit

Gaea is noted as being in sector C-16 of Cybertronian space, as an Earth-like planet with two moons and a supply of Angolmois to which Galvatron would attempt to lay claim.

The AllSpark AlmanacEdit

Gaia was an unclaimed or neutral organic planet separate from Earth in the Milky Way.

The Vision of EscaflowneEdit

In an alternate dimension from Earth, there floats a twin planet replica with oceans, continents, and ancient civilizations. Its size, mass, atmospheric composition, temperature belts, and even seasons are essentially similar to those of Earth, though given some of the jumping and acrobatic feats of some of the show's characters, it is possible that the gravity is slightly lower than Earth's. However, although people on Earth cannot see Gaea, people on Gaea see both the Moon and Earth in their nightly expanse.

Gaea was created by the combined wish from those on doomed Atlantis once they had realized that their ways were the end of their own civilization.

Political System Over a hundred different countries exist on Gaea

Cowboy BebopEdit

Gaea is Earth's twin planet. In the year 2022, an Astral Gate exploded above Gaea in an event known as The Gate Accident. The explosion destroyed most of Gaea's Moon, causing a near-constant natural disaster of Rock Showers falling into orbit and hitting the planet surface.

After The Gate Accident most of Gaea's population migrated to other worlds. The few that remain typically live in ruined settlements, often with a respectable semblance of society and order.

VandreadEdit

Following the initial drive to colonize, pollution has devastated Gaea, making any life on the planet near impossible. Huge metal gears now cover Gaea's stratosphere in an attempt to create a living environment for people in massive structures surrounding the planet. Earthlings, alone and dying on the toxic planet, began to question the humanity of the colonists. Eventually, they convinced themselves that only the inhabitants of Gaea are human, and all other humans exists solely to ensure their continued existence. Their solution, therefore, was to send out the Harvester fleet of machines created from the same basic material as the Nirvana's core, the Paksis Pragma. The Harvesters raid and dominate colonies to obtain body parts, allowing the Earthlings to replace their own dying bodies, thus becoming immortal through the lives of others.

Mouretsu PiratesEdit

The Galactic Empire decided to destroy Gaea to prevent the future Harvester uprising.

Titan A.E.Edit

In 22nd century, the humans of Earth and Homeworlds Congress discovered Gaea and colonized the planet. In 2106 AD, the Drej attacked and destroyed Gaea and its humans leave to the Spiral Arm, where they are reduced to either living in drifter colonies on settlements made from the metal of the evacuation ships or being second class citizens in alien societies, in which they are generally ridiculed. New Earth was formed by the Titan and the scattered human drifters from all around the Spiral Arm with the emergence.

Transformers: UniverseEdit

Gaea is a separate planet from Earth and the third planet in the Alpha Centauri System.

Gaea was created by the combined wish from an ancient highly advanced human civilization on doomed Atlantis once they had realized that three Mini-Cons who combined into a flaming sword, Star Saber, were the end of their civilization. During Gaea's creation, it formed around Unicron's Prime counterpart with the Anti-Spark as its core. The mysterious aliens known as the Vok chose Gaea as the site of an experiment, and seeded the planet with vast amounts of raw energon, installing a artificial moon into the planet's orbit, and placing several devices (including Stonehenge) at strategic points on the planet.

Around the time of the emergence of proto-hominids, a group of Maximals and Predacons travelled to Gaea, where they waged a conflict they dubbed the "Beast Wars," and encountered the Vok, interfering in their plans. Deciding that the Beast Warriors had contaminated their experiment, the Vok activated the second moon, transforming it into a giant laser weapon with which they planned to detonate the Energon seeded throughout the planet, wiping it clean of life. This plan was foiled by the Maximal leader, Optimus Primal, but the vast majority of the raw Energon on the planet was transformed into stable, cube form. Primal's wish to relocate Gaea in Alpha Centauri with its new moon.

During the Energon War, both sides between Autobot and Decepticon eventually discovered the reason Gaea seemed so important in Cybertronian lore was that Unicron formed its very core and Gaea was the richest planet in Dark Energon. When Unicron threatened to destroy Gaea, an unlikely alliance between Autobot and Decepticon tried to force him back to stasis, but Alpha Q cracked Gaea open like a egg to retrieve Unicron's core with the Anti-Spark for the real badly-damaged Unicron. The Mini-Cons created a replacement for Gaea's lost core made of the remains of the Nameless Planet and restored Gaea to its normal state.

The powerful energy source known as Angolmois, the lifeforce of the prototype Unicron. After his destruction in 2016, Unicron's lifeforce raced through space and became trapped within Gaea.

While going through transwarp space, Lio Convoy and the Maximals, as well as Galvatron and the Predacons, landed on Gaea. Galvatron was drawn to Gaea due to the high levels of the Angolmois energy riddled throughout its surface. Lio Convoy, aware that the universe would be doomed if the Predacons got control of the Angolmois, stayed with the Maximals to fight them off.

Eventually, Galvatron used his battle ship, the Nemesis, to suck all the Angolmois out of the planet. Thanks to the intervening of Lio Convoy, the Angolmois was sealed away in capsules and scattered across the cosmos before Galvatron could use it.

NotesEdit

  • It is never specifically stated in the show itself that Gaea is Earth in the distant future. Instead, this was only made clear many years after Beast Wars II, in Lio Convoy's Robot Masters bio.
  • The status of Gaea as far-future Earth belongs exclusively to the Japanese animated series and IDW comics continuities.
