    I have read in several threads that the 'Cons are on a ship in TF2. I don't understand why everyone is saying this. Is this actually stated somewhere? I always believed it was a dead Cybertron that they were trying to restore life to. I don't recall anything in the movie referring to a ship. Can someone please explain?

    When Megatron is revived, he flies to a planet that is cleary not filled with metallic structures. On this planet he flies into a giant spaceship. It's only a short scene but clear enough to see it's not Cybertron, and is a ship. :)

    I think it's specifically referred to as 'The Nemesis' in the novelisation for ROTF and in the DVD commentary for the film as well (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

    Also, and slightly more tenuous, is the Megatron/Fallen/Soundwave figure pack which is called "Gathering at the Nemesis". I know Soundwave should technically be replaced by Starscream but it is more than a slight hint (at least to me).

    It wasn't a planet that he landed on... it was a moon of Saturn, hence saturn being in the background of the space shot.

    I guess if you're just watching the movie and not delving into the books, commentaries, and toys, it's not as noticeable. I've always assumed it was Cybertron.

    You see him fly to what seems to be one of Saturn's moons, where I assume the Decepticon ship is. We've seen Cyberetron in the first movie and that's not Cybertron.

    Not Cybertron, just the Nemesis - only specifically named in tie-in media, which general audience members won't give a flying flip about.

    Definately not Charr. Unless Cybertronian astonomy designated it "Char" and a "planet"...

    Is Char(r) with one R or two?

    Yeah it's not Charr... unless there is an exact copy of Saturn somewhere, I doubt it. [/sarcasm]

    I could tell it was the Nemesis just by looking at it.

    It's the Nemesis, on one of Saturn's moons.

    In the film- The Nemesis has somehow crashed onto one of Saturn's moons

    In the original script- The Nemesis is on Mars

    mars actually makes sense because of the first movie showing the images from the mars rover....maybe bay put saturn there to make an EXAGGERATED point for the 'dumb' audience, saying the ship is on a planet, which planet...well there is saturn after this planet, so they must be on mars.... hahahahah like how there were 5 decepticons descending in the ocean and then 6 returning kind of thing

    In the picture on tfwiki, it almost looks like the "saturn" looking planet is too small for where the ship is to be a moon of it. I could be wrong, I'm just going off that pic, I haven't seen the movie in awhile.
