[2] The story revolves around the eponymous Dark Spark, a powerful Cybertronian artifact; in the film continuity, the Autobots attempt to reclaim it from the mercenary Lockdown before he can use it for his own nefarious schemes, while in the Cybertron continuity, the Decepticons race with the Autobots to retrieve it first and destroy their rivals once and for all.
