Am I the only confused about Megatron´s choices in seconds in commad (even if this is a question from since the G1 series, this Megatron is clever and genre savy enough)? Like Rincewind said in "Interesting Times":"Are you a devious, plotting, unreliable madman? Ah, good, then you can be my most trusted minister". Just to be clear, I am talking about both Starscream and Airachnid. Maybe Megatrons feels that the position of Supreme Lord of the Decepticons (in the actuality, little more than be a captain of a single battleship with a few hundreds of minions, most of them drones (surely far less impressive than back in Cybertron, when he controlled vast entires armies and cities) would be a little boring and dissapointing without anyone trying to usurp the tittle from him.
