    What? The Probe? The probe was an alien device, not from G1.

    The chain of command is something thats put in place so a military unit (or any other organisational structure) can continue to function if the commander is incapacitated. The Maximals didn't have one, as they were an exploration team. Primal was the ship's captain, but as Rattrap was continually pointing out, he wasn't really 'Prime' material. he grows into the role of leader over the course of the show.

    As Megatron points out, Without Primal there to hold things together, the Maximals will end up squabbling over who wants to be leader, affording them the perfect opportunity to strike.

    Its debatable whether Megatron actually had a chain of command. If Dinobot hadn't defected, I think he would have been megatron's leiutenant. As it was, that role passed to the dim, but well meaning scorponok. Probably because he was loyal to Megatron and less likely to betray Megatron and follow his own path.

    I'm assuming he's talking about the alien probe that beamed down and captured Primal.

    I think he's asking what that Probe in "Chain of Command" was. In which case, it was a Vok probe: it has nothing to do with G1.

    The best suggestion I can make for you is to watch the entire series, and if you have a question during one of the episodes, write it down (somewhere where you can keep all your questions together and organized). When the series is finished, go over your questions and see which ones have been answered, and which haven't, and post the ones which haven't (all at once, rather than like in a dozen different threads, do them a chunk at a time in the same thread if that makes it easier for you). I guarantee you a lot of your questions will be answered, or at least better explained, and right now a lot of posters are afraid of answering them because they don't want to ruin the upcoming episodes for you.

    A very good place to go for plenty of information is the Beast Wars Appreciation Thread 2010 in the toy discussion forum. Might take a bit of digging to find your answers but that's where most of the BW talk goes on around here.
