    Simple question would you prefer Ratchet to go out on missions with the Autobots on a regular basis or have him only go out occasionally like he does now. I wish he went out with the team more because it just feels strange not having him out there. I know someone needs to stay behind for the ground bridge but i just say they give Ratchet a device in his arm so he can open it whenever he needs to outside the base

    Ratchet should stay at base because they need some one to operate the ground bridge and they need their medic incase if there is an injury.

    I voted for "occasionally (How it is in the show now)". It is the right thing that the only qualified medic is staying at the base, but when he travels along sometimes, it is still worth seeing.

    Occasionally is fine. It makes sense to leave him at the base anyway. He has no long range weapons and it's strategically effective for the medic to be kept safe so they can heal others.

    On occasion, yes. However, they need their medic back at base in case another tragedy like what happened to Raf happens.

    Staying at the base most of the time would be the best case. Besides the ominous question of, "who heals the healer?", Ratchet's not exactly the most skilled fighter.

    No. That way he won't be damaged while trying to heal a wounded Autobot and he's probably the best medic the Autobots have available so without him, they would die because of their wounds. Oh, and he needs to control the ground bridge also. He should come out to the battlefield 1 time each season at most.

    [/suspicious look]

    Nah, I like how it is now. A liiiiittle more wouldn't hurt, but his mild agoraphobia (I think that's the right word?) is one of his traits in this show. ..and it's funny.

    I wouldn't say that Ratchet suffers from agoraphobia. But he understands and admits that he is an older mech. He's not as fast or strong as he was in his younger days. The Decepticons have a lot of young, strong, fast bots on their side. Unless Ratchet is kept hopped up on SynthEn, I don't think he'd fare too well, especially since he doesn't have any form of a firearm.

    yea as is is fine, most (all?) of the times he's been pulled from the benches the episode has kicked ass, so like, keep it like that.

    Hopefully this show runs 4-5 seasons, and in the end some episodes are better than others inevitably... it wouldnt be a bad thing to look back at the show and know that every time ratchet leaves the base it was a memorable event.

    Occasionally. Rachet has to care for Bulkhead and I do think bulkhead will be out for sometime.

    When has he ever show himself as a agoraphobic? But yes Ratchet is funny.

    And by out with Arcee. On a Mission. They'd make a great team.

    I voted for occasionally. I liked the parts where he went on the battlefield, with Optimus against those zombots, together with Wheeljack and offcourse when he was on steriods :D

    Needs to stay the way it is. If Ratchet leaves base constantly for combat it takes the zest out of it whenever he goes out to do something important.
