GoBotron is a fictional planet from the GoBots series.
GoBotron was a planet that eons ago supported life similar to that found on the planet Earth that was located in one of the spiral arms of the Milky Way galaxy. Its dominant species, the GoBeings, were a race of humanoids very similar to Humans in appearance. They developed into a technologically advanced civilization and as they progressed their world underwent significant changes. This led to a thriving society that spanned the entire world though their civilization began to outgrow their small world. Thus, they began building enormous metallic structures over the entire surface of their home world. These chain of events led to the emergence of the second age of GoBotron where a remarkably unified society developed with advanced technology ranging from hover cars to holographic projection. This tranquil period, however, ended when a civil war broke out amongst the people that was instigated by those that sought to disrupt the accepted norms of their society. These individuals became known as the Renegades and was led by a terrorist who became known as the Master Renegade during the first Renegade Revolt. Amongst those that defended the peaceful citizens were a corps of police officers known as the Guardians. Over many years, the two sides battled with one another with neither gaining or losing ground. On one occasion, the Master Renegade and his followers decided to strike against an asteroid harvesting fleet that were mining an asteroid the size of Texas. However, this led to the asteroid being inadvertently being sent plummeting to the surface of GoBotron with the massive impact leading to an explosion that killed an estimated 80% of the planetary population. In addition, a sizeable part of the planet itself was devastated that forever changed its appearance as it led to the world gaining a trademarked apple-core shape. Despite the devastation, a hero emerged within these dark times known as the Last Engineer who knew of the dire straits his people were facing. As a result, he developed a new technology designed to allow his civilization to survive. His solution was the transference of the minds of the inhabitants of GoBotron into robotic bodies thus saving them from extinction. The resultant action led to the people being referred to as GoBots that was a term taken from the Last Engineer. In the aftermath of the near destruction of GoBotron, both the Last Engineer and the Master Renegade disappeared with their whereabouts being a mystery for generation. All that remained were legends of the heroic Last Engineer and the villainy of the Master Renegade.
Despite the change, the planet was still in a period of social upheaval in the years that followed. In this time, the Guardians attempted to recover and rebuild what was left of their civilization whilst the disruptive Renegades were left to their own devices. Among the struggle for dominance came among the stronger members of the Renegades that led to a violent battle for power. The winner of this battle was a being known as the Evil One who wielded a powerful anti-matter weapon known as the Dark Heart which he used to attack GoBotron. The power he unleashed was so powerful that it nearly destroyed the entire world in a chain reaction. However, the Guardian elders managed to barely stop him and exiled him into deep space as punishment for his actions.
In the "Ask Vector Prime" story "Echoes and Fragments", GoBotron was home to an Omega Lock, which was employed in a scheme by Sideways and Gong to cross a GoBots reality with a Transformers reality, creating chaos in both as elements of the two were mingled.
