It was haphazard and the fact that a one off animation studio did this episode is probably telling to how they chose to use some things improperly. The left out dialogue is the biggest mystery and we know that they did this frequently in light of the raw recordings that have come out of Season 1 episodes. The Matrix being in the episode though COULD be referenced in a later tale even if it wasn't important in this story. We do know that Donald Glut wasn't fond of Transformers, or the episodes that he wrote. But continuity sometimes works between episodes even if it wasn't originally intended. Look at The Search for Alpha Trion. It was implied that Optimus Prime and Elita One were made by Alpha Trion and later episodes jumped in on this and expanded upon it. I wrote a previous post hoping to try and connect some of the dots and I'm curious as to what any of you think. I'd still like to iron out my theory about who the assistant was. Note that he says "The Primacron's assistant." I wonder if that means Primacron is what he IS not his name. Also I think Primacron was pretty much designed to be like the Wizard of Oz in that you think him bigger than he is.
