    Spoiler talk.

    This is kind of a take-off from my other thread:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...616-star-sword-vs-blood-unicron-spoilers.html






    No, I don't think he's a 'Con... but I don't think he is who he says either.

    We just learned that Alpha Trion sent all these relics to Earth in the past to aid Optimus in this part of the war.

    So then in the midst of this relic hunt, who is it that just so happens to arrive but a previous guard from the Iacon Hall of Records guarding Alpha Trion and has knowlege of said relics?

    Coincidence?

    I don't think all the PRIMES are dead either. Is it possible this "rookie" is actually a PRIME? Alpha Trion himself perhaps?

    Or maybe A3's "spark" is inhabiting the body of this rookie (for his protection?)- which would prevent him from yielding the Star Saber.

    But in any case... you have to admit that this rookie's identity would make the perfect smokescreen to mask a real identity.

    There's more to this kid than meets the eye.

    So maybe Optimus has a hunch about this "kid" and that's why he let him on the team... and is letting him keep the phase device.

    I like this theory too (the one about him being a future Prime & whatnot), especially since it relates to one of the show's original taglines that I'd pretty much assumed was forgotten about in light of how early it was written, much like the whole "They say the user lives outside the net, and inputs games for pleasure..." stuff in the Reboot openings that was never resolved.

    If the rookie were a Prime, he would've been able to pull out the Star Saber as it could only be wield by a Prime.

    But I do agree that Optimus may suspect something about Smokescreen, but is keeping them to himself.

    I'll admit I was thinking he was some sort of double agent from his first appearance, but I've backed off from that stance a bit. Time will tell however...

    Though for some strange reason, he seems to have an interest in the phase shifter. :peoples:  The moment he saw it, he was fascinated by it.

    Either he's Sideways in disguise and he owned the Phase Shifter in the first place, or Alpha Trion suggested that he look for it, both seem far fetched after typing this out.

    Oh yeah- forgot to put that. He could be that too. Hotrod / Rodimus incognito.

    Covered that in my 1st post.

    Oh yeah.

    Only during the first half on new recruit. I feel like he good.
    Ya he also has a mysterious thing about him. He could be somehow related to being a prime. Maybe he was the combiner prime and is a split part.

    I've been speculating myself that Alpha Trion saw something in Smokescreen like he did a young Orion Pax and he was meant to end up with Optimus to learn from him for some purpose. Perhaps I'm just seeing more into this than I should though. I suppose if he is more than he says it will come into play later on. I do agree with you about Optimus maybe knowing something and just not revealing it.

    Other than that I just see a young, eager, good natured and inexperienced Autobot just starting to learn about life and it's hard lessons.

    He was a character that started out as an Autobot and turned sides to Decepticon and then went totally rogue as an agent of Unicron in the Armada series.

    There have been other threads and posts to the same effect.

    I would hope that Smokescreen has a special mission, assigned by Alpha Trion that he's undergoing and "everything" we know about him is a carefully constructed act.

    Part of the reason he asked if Alpha Trion mentioned him wasn't ego, it was if Alpha Trion shared the real reason he was there with Prime or not in the most recent episode. It also explains his detailed knowledge of the artifacts and their use.

    It may seem like theres more than meets the eye about him, but its actually just a matter of the transformers prime writers slacking off. "Badam TSS"
