OK, for years I was a staunch "geewunner" but I'm noticing that as I get older that I'm more open minded to new things and change in general, so even though it's an older series it was new for me. I had a marathon two day session where all I did in my free time was watch Beast Wars from beginning to end and upon completion I have to say, "What an idiot I was for not watching this sooner!" Beast Wars has to have some of the best writing and character development I've ever seen in a cartoon series! The overall series had a direction in mind and followed it through excellently. I will soon begin watching Beast Machines since I've heard that it's in the same continuity. But one quick question and I'll shut up my praise rant. When G1 Starscream's spark showed up and possessed Waspinator, was it ever explained how he got there in the past? Also has it ever been indicated whether or not he knew it was earth? If so I should think that he would have possessed his own body in the Ark. From that point on he would have been armed with knowledge of the future and could have wreaked mayhem. Thoughts anyone?
