I want an episode about the ark.
Do we even know if there is an Ark?
Maybe the Ark is the base.....we don't know it's still early in teh show.
The base is an converted missile silo, so I don't see how that's possible.
Well isn't prime sorta connected to war for cybertron? So maybe there will be an ark..but who knows, they might have used up the rest of the seasons budget animating jack's mom.
That is a good question. Where is the ark? better yet, How the hell did they get to earth in the first place? the series started with them already on earth, so that raises a ton of questions.
Maybe the Ark is on the moon carrrying a certain Prime prehaps?
I hope if the Ark is in the series we get a Play Set along with the Nemesis.
Who's to say that The Ark even brought them to Earth, who's not to say that The Xantium didn't bring them?
For all we know, The Ark could be treated the same way in DOTM, it could have been an ancient Autobot craft that Optimus and his crew never piloted.
I'd prefer they not do anymore references to the movies. I understand that Prime is clearly based off the movie franchise's origin and concepts but I feel that it's gone off in its own direction that is both very interesting to watch and see unfold. Personally, I would love to see an Ark - but not the same way through G1. But rather towards the "ancient" Autobots that built the artifacts like the Energon Harvester. My inner fan wants to see these ancient Autobots in a different aesthetic along the lines of how EJ Su drew the IDW modern bots different from Nova Prime's crew.
Same continuity family but not the same continuity.
I think it's possible to see the Ark at some point because the show has made it pretty clear that Transformers travel in space ships and those space ships can vary in size from a one bot craft to huge ships like the Decepticon's main ship.
Perhaps the Autobots aren't using it as a base because the Decepticons know where it's at as well. But I could see an episode where Ratchet needs something from the Ark so the Autobots have to go on a dangerous mission to get it.
Why do I get the feeling that rock bottom will have the ARK involved somehow? They do go into a cave for some reason.
What if they use elements of G1/BW to bring in the Ark. Someone discovers the ship buiried in a mountain. Ark was a Autobot ship sent out thousands of years ago & was never heard from again. Knowing that there is lost Cybertronian tech on board, both the Bots & Cons race to secure the Ark first. When they finally go in, they discover Decepticons there as well, meaning somewhere on Earth is a crashed Decepticon crusiser as well. A great way to introduce new characters on both sides.
This could work in the context of Rock Bottom's plot. Megs and Scream find the ship and decide to use its tech for something. They could then explain the harvester as being stolen from this ship and the war that took place on Earth was between the TFs on this ship.
Would be interesting if done right. Though I don't expect to see it in the first season. Maybe season two or three.
