But Starscream never outright deserted. Fulcrum did. He was recaptured, imprisoned, sentenced to death by "traitor's wheel" (sounds painful), and then resentenced at the last minute to death by suicide bombing - which he then survived. That's why the DJD went after him. They found out he was still alive, having escaped Decepticon justice twice. ...I may have a slight attachment to Fulcrum, as I voice him for the Audio Knights Theatre.
