*** Naw, it was [[TheDresdenFiles Demonreach.]] C'mon, a totally isolated island in the middle of the Great Lakes? Home to powerful monsters who threaten the world?

** Honestly, that car has probably been trashed so much that they ''make'' him use his own to save PD a ton of money

* According to the Allspark Almanac the first Cybertronian war was fought against invaders from the skies. The second one however was fought between the Guardians and the Malignus. Later a subfaction would emerge within each group leading to the Protectobots and the Destrons. The same thing happened again forming the Autobots and Decpticons. In the series proper we see Blackarachnia forming the begining of what will likely become the Predacons, an new subfaction. The diffrence is that this faction is techno-organic. If this example is anything to go by that suggests that in the past each faction was marked by some change that made them different from their predecesors. ie. Autobots have something Protectobots don't have. So assuming that this is what actually happened, can anyone think of any major technological advancements that would mark one generation of transformers as being radically different from the one that came immediatly before it?

** On board space bridges may be realatively new compared to space bridges. It could also be more risky to warp the ship (what if the engines aren't in the warp field) then it is to go through an external space bridge.

*How do the bots created on Earth survive? Or every mech on Earth really? They have to run on ''something'' right? They clearly drink oil, but that is more like alcohol for them. So what do they use on Earth?

*So... it's illegal for Captain Fanzone to use his personal car for police work, right? Has the law changed in the future? Is there some special stipulation in Michigan? How can he just slap a siren on it and drive it into disturbances?

*** Hey, that quote actually makes perfect sense- they're robots, they were probably designed for certain purposes, so the Autobots rely on tools because of their programing. Think about it- those few explicit Autobot weapons are still usually tools (A hammer? Nunchaku started as grain grinders! Optimus' axe is because he's basically a fire truck with a weird paint job!) They only won a war against actual kill-bots because they were better at building stuff.

****Makes sense. Even the explicit Autobot weapons are still tools- (Magnus ''hammer''? Optimus' axe is kind of a nod to him being a fire truck with a weird paint job) When you think about it, they only won the war because of superior engineering skill (bridges, the Omegas)

** It took Ratchet a lot of work to get the access code out of Arcee, and she was, like, in a coma for the whole thing, implying that it can't be done safely on an online bot. Shockwave has a more complex setup but there's no reason to think that Autobots and Decepticons share the same technology (there's a lot of evidence to suggest they ''don't'', since the 'Cons have no knowledge of space bridges).
