    Yeah, after Battlestars Megatron would return "many years later" for the Generation 2 manga in another upgraded body, and Star Convoy would also be upgraded to the G2 Combat Hero version. It's a crazy link between the stories, but it is kinda fun how it just kept going as one narrative right up to Beast Wars.

    so that's where they got the idea for an evil prime/convoy character

    i always thought that motormaster was the earliest attempt at exploring the idea back in the day

    The very earliest would have been the Season 2 episode "A Prime Problem" where Megatron cloned Optimus Prime. The first true "evil Prime" though would probably have been Guiltaur. Motormaster was earlier, but he's not really an evil Optimus. He's an evil truck, with some similar design to Optimus, but he's not the same as a Nemesis / Scourge.

    Yes, in Masquerade. Fun episode. One of the few uses of Windcharger's magnetic abilities.

    No idea if Dark Nova is connected to the Quints, but I doubt it. The Quints fell out of use in Japanese fiction after Season 3. Violenjaeger was the closest thing to a Quint, but even then he was never referred to as one, and when his true nature was revealed, he was something completely different. He just acted like one in the Zone OVA with his three heads. Actually, he acted a whole lot more like Alpha Q from Energon than a Classic Quint, since Alpha and Violen both have different personalities for their faces, not different functions. The Quints had one personality but different functions for each face.

    Anyway, that's all completely and utterly unconnected to Dark Nova.

    Nope.

    If anything, Dark Nova might have some sort of connection to Unicron. Both Catalogue stories featured a spectral version of Unicron as the adversary, but referred to him as "Dark Nova" (making no mention of the name "Unicron"). The story pages also made no connection to Unicron at all save for Star Giant dying in a similar fashion, so its an unconfirmed/dubious connection between the two characters.

    I wrote that article at the TF Wiki. Glad to see its of some use.

    Indeed there is - in fact coincidentally I posted a link to it in a Radicons thread earlier.

    It's by Freestyle, and it's based on a RobotMasters Convoy. Here be, handily translate (roughly) into English.

    That is pretty impressive. I epsecially like how he realized Guiltaur's Revolver Cannon.

    Could Dark Nova be Unicron from some multiverse dimension because how both of them kinda look like, but its just my opinion. Anyways I think it might be awesome to see a custom of Dark Nova.

    Anything is possible. I'd like to think that Dark Nova could be another being of Unicron's race, another one of the elder gods who included Primus and Unicron.
