Four teenagers stumble upon the landing of an alien craft that is crewed by a group of anthropomorphic dinosaurs called the Dinosaucers who warn of an incoming invasion by another group; the Tyrannos. The teenagers agree to be the Dinosaurcers' Secret Scouts on the look out for the invasion. When the Tyrannos arrive the two factions conduct a war of skirmishes for the planet; one seeking to establish a foothold for invasion and the other to prevent such in the hopes of peaceful relations between the two worlds.

Notes on the Setting[]

The two rival groups come from the planet Reptilon which is in counter-Earth orbit. The main technological rivalry between these two factions comes in the power to 'devolve'- which causes an individual to take on a more dinosaur or saurian form. The Dinosaurcers have the power to use such an ability on themselves while retaining intellect and speech while their rivals, the Tyrannos can not and have turned the same technology into a weapon of war capable of devolving what ever it hits reducing the target to an animal state. This pattern stays consistent in the series; while the Dinosaurcers use technology for utility and defense the Tyrannos use it for offensive purposes.The Tyrannos even possess a 'Fossilizer' capable of turning the target to stone but such technology came from a third faction of felines (resembling Sabertooth Cats) that use to inhabit the home world of Reptilon. In the past the Dinosaurcers and Tyrannos had fought together against this common foe and drove them into space. The episode 'Chariot of the Dinosaucers' has a statement that one Reptilonian visited Earth during the reign of Pharaoh Khufu more then 5000 years ago (being in counter Earth orbit Reptilon years are the same length as those of Earth). Khufu's reign ended in 2566 BC with the Pyramids being completed in 2560 BCE after about 10 or 15 years of construction giving the current year of the show to be between 2425 to 2440 AD at least.
