    During the Beast Wars era we see Optimus Primal as Leader is he the a Matrix Bearer aswell? Like the chosen one? His name says it all OPTIMUS PRIMAL. Also why he didn't he brought the Matrix up?

    Optimus Primal is just a starship captain who happens to be named after Optimus Prime. He's not a Matrix bearer like Prime. Beast Machines says Primal has a "receptive spark" but it's never really clear what exactly that means, other than allowing him to access the Oracle computer.

    According to the cartoons, the Maximal Council of Elders.

    The IDW comics refers to them as the Maximal Imperium.

    Optimus Primal was never the leader of all Maximals. He was just some guy. He happened to be captain of his ship and 3 other guys. That's it.

    Yeah, he was pretty much Captain Janeway.

    No one, unless you count the stasis locked G1 Optimus Prime...

    Or Lio Convoy... Or Big Convoy. Considering the fact they're practically Maximal commanders of different space teams with Matrices of their own...

    In the past on Earth you can say Optimus Prime had the Matrix. In the BW present the Matrix was probably still empty from the hate plague incident.

    I always thought Vector Sigma would have refilled it or something, post-Rebirth. Barring that, Optimus said he and the Autobots would start trying to refill it with their own wisdom, the egomaniac.

    So was that. :) 

    I loved Captain Janeway. For the longest time, everything I read in my head (longer than a paragraph anyway) was done in Kate Mulgrew's voice, and this went on long after I stopped watching Voyager every day. Well, the villain parts often went into Jeffery Combs or Jonathan Franks for a chance of pace, but I really didn't mean that post as an insult.
