Dreamwave comics continuity
During this time, both sides split into numerous sub-factions; Starscream tried to gain power assembling a own unit, called the "Predacons", based (presumably) on one of Cybertron's moons. They suffered a tremendous setback when the Lightning Strike Coalition, headed by Grimlock, stole a pair of transporters loaded down with energon from them.
When the Autobots called a truce with the Decepticons led by Shockwave and Ratbat's Ultracons, Starscream made his own plans for his faction. The Predacons attacked the signing treaty at Tyger Pax, while Starscream himself took out the remaining members of the Council of Ancients.
His strike did not have the effect he wanted, however... mainly because during the battle, Megatron arrived with a clone army and promptly conquered Cybertron.
