a.k.a. The Fembots episode. But some interesting plot details have surfaced. Things that were throway lines at the time might be,,,, more than meets the eye. In War Dawn, A-3 rebuilds Orian Pax into Optimus Prime, and also does some work on Ariel (though not explicitly shown) We still do not know what happend to Dion although many infer that it is Ultra Magnus (though the colors being WAY off it seems inconsistant that he would get a repaint when OP and E1 keep their original colors. Also I noticed he transforms like Kup, but then with G-1 animation that means nothing) Anyway, so A3 builds Optimus and E1 and one other. In The Serch for Alpha Trion, Elita1 has some sort of time stopping ability that drains her her life force (remeber this is BEFORE the term "spark" came about) She was very concerned about Op taking an acid bath that she used her "never use this" power. At the time we all laughed and figured it was a she's gonna save her boyfriend thing. but 20 years of retrospective make these episodes VERY intriguing (if poorly acted) When did Optimus get the matrix? We all assume he got it when he became Prime, since Orian Pax was little more than a dock worker. And A3 is a nutty old bot with many machivelian schemes aboutso most fandom has assumed HE gave Prime the Matrix (there may be more evedence in season 3) The Matrix is the ONLY THING that can defeat Unicron. And Prime has it, and A3 knows it. Yet,,,,, HE BUILT Elita 1 and gave her a TIME STOPPING ABILITY!!! Okay let it sink in. sure this is only coincedence but if you think about it. Elita 1 was made to sacrifice herself if Optimus couldn't use the Matrix against Unicron. This has massive implications! This may explain why she used her power to save Prime, not because she loved him, but because she knew the matrix would be destroyed by the acid and with it hope of defeting Unicron. Although Optimus & Co. have been MIA on Earth for 4 million years, Elita was working DIRECTLY for Alpha Trion. She might know EVERYTHING (as far as Primus/Unicron/the Matrix/Cybertronian pre-history/etc.) making her more of a High Priestess than a mere rebel leader. The last question I have is,,,, now more than ever, who is Dion? And does he have any special abilities?
