As we all know, in most versions of the G1 canon, Megatron has had three Decepticons who've served as his sub-commanders. There's Starscream (the treacherous one), Soundwave (the loyal one), and Shockwave (the either-one-depending-on-the-continuity one). Each of them filled a specific subordinate role (for example, based on Dreamwave, Starscream was Air Commander, Shockwave was in charge of military operations, and Soundwave was the communications officer). I was thinking about this the other day, and a thought came to me: Starscream's always trying to take over, right? So, hypothetically, if he managed to permanently off Megatron and take command, who would he choose as his subordinates? Would Soundwave and Shockwave's loyalties to Megatron/themselves prevent them from serving under Starscream? Which other Decepticons have what it takes to be considered for such positions? Would Starscream's pride stop him from even choosing subordinates? The possibilities are, of course, endless. Any thoughts?
