    If Alpha Trion were to appear on Earth in Transformers: Prime (a strong possibility since he is both Optimus and Smokescreen's mentor and he has yet to be confirmed dead), do you think he'd pull a DOTM tactic and betray the Autobots?

    If one thing this show proves is that nothing is definate but it is a possibility. Personally I don't think they'd do that because it was Sentinel Prime who betrayed the Autobots in Dark of the Moon and he bit the big one in War For Cybertron in the Prime continuity. Alpha Trion is certainly one I'm curious on HOW they are going to portray because I like the wise old Autobot of G1.

    Alpha Trion trained Smokescreen?

    Watch New Recruit, Smokescreen mentioned to Optimus that he worked under Trion in the Iacon Hall Of Records and thought of him as a teacher to him.

    To be honest, I think he's dead at this point.

    Although, there might be flashbacks of him but its safe to assume he's dead.

    Nope. No confirmation yet so there is no way to know for sure if he's dead or not. He was alive during the Exodus novel and he has been alive during a lot of the events so far that have occurred during TF: Prime.

    Since I've never seen the novel, I don't know much that went on in it. But I really think he's dead. The goals of the Decepticons is too defeat the Autobots, to defeat them, you first have to crush hope. AT is a powerful symbol of the Autobots, much like Prime is. Killing either one would be a huge blow for the bots and a huge surge for the cons.

    They didn't name-drop that SOB by accident.

    I really doubt he's evil though. Hopefully he's just a bit of a dick like in Spotlight: Ironhide. Keeps him interesting!

    I prefer him as the wise, old kindly Autobot of before. At most as a "morally grey" mentor who plays everyone like chesspieces to further the greater good, nothing more.

    If they want a Sentinel-esque character...well...use Sentinel.

    This. I doubt they'll pull a Sentinel with a character other that Sentinel.

    As he's one of the original 13, I think it's pretty darn unlikely that's the route they'll go with him.

    There was that Ironhide comic from IDW, it was boring, very boring, waste of time.

    But it had ONE good thing: Alpha Trion. He was amazing in it. He's full of himself yet wise and it made him hilarious.

    I want any future Alpha Trions to be like that, I laughed fucking hard at that guy.

    Why is it so unlikely? The Fallen was one of the Original 13.

    Well given what they've told us about the 13, if they expand upon it more, I wouldn't be surprised if A3 were involved, especially in giving us backstory.

    I highly doubt that Alpha Trion would be a traitor

    It is very telling that the writers of "New Recruit" saw fit to give Optimus a line asking about the whereabouts (and even continued existence) of Alpha Trion if they don't plan to pay this off in any way. Perhaps as a neat little aside it would be fine, but it sure seems like the writers have further plans for this.

    He may not be a traitor...

    But he's still going to give Megatron a hand.
