    1. The Booster was probably covered by the fire and the smoke.
    2. Barricade and Soundwave probably overwhelmed them with Protoforms, leading them to surrender [that or Soundwave knocked them out with a soundblast].

    They explained that they made a special capsule that would detatch if the ship was destroyed. Optimus explains that in black and white to Sam when he got to Chicago. And you do see a big cylinder shape still intact hit the ocean, briefly.

    The Autobots got caught because they were severely outnumbered. Same thing happened in real life with Black Hawk Down.

    It's pretty much SOP for shuttle launches. That's how they work.

    Crappy edit, but you can't assume time off-screen is equal to time spent doing something.
