    Astrotrain didn't try to fly all the way to Cybertron.

    Why didn't he just fly into the space bridge they contracted in episode 4?

    I like to think that as the Decepticons conquered Cybertron leading up to 2005, the Autobots were heavily fortifying Earth as their one of their main strongholds and in the process, probably destroyed all the Space Bridge receivers on the planet, not wanting to leave themselves open to ambush.

    Thereby necessitating using Astrotrain for travel to and from the planet.

    They could have reprogrammed it to an Auto moon base. That's how Prime could come to Earth faster!

    Yeah, but that would've ruined the drama of when he finally did get there with reinforcements.

    well, he could have been forever if the many non-injured jet altmode :cough: starscream :cough: got out and flew the rest of the way. but thats just me. i mean starscream flew to cybertron while it was in earth's orbit after it was sent out into space right? so getting there should have been no issue. also, since ALL decepticons can fly with seemingly no propulstion ... i dont see why space flight AFTER ALREADY LEAVING EARTH'S G-WELL would be an issue ...

    Considering that Ramjet and Thrust were up there on the podium with him, and Astrotrain was the one to place the frigging crown on his head, I think they were all in on it.

    Thats a good point to reprogrammed it for Autobot use only, sending them from Moonbase 1 to Earth, in The Movie Ironhide, Prowl, Ratchet and Brawn could of used the Space Bridge to go to Autobot City without a Decepticon ambush

    I doubt that the space bridge can be reprogrammed, especially after Sparkplug used Teletraan to hack into the Decepticon's computer. So it was only a one time deal.

    Doubtful the Decepticons would allow the Autobots to reprogram the SB again.Seems logical they would have insured that wasnt possible again.

    Or if not what the Autbots could of done is do what they did in Headmasters, built a Autobot Space Bridge that teleports them from Autobot city (Earth) to Autobot headquarters (Athenia) but it would be Autobot City (Earth) to Moonbase 1

    They didnt have enough power [energon] to launch an attack to retake Cybertron, I doubt they had enough to build a bridge.
