    It's a really good read.

    Some FANTASTIC introspection re: Megatron, and there's a poignant flashback that calls back to a Megatron quotation Tarn was spouting back in Season 1.

    That was fantastic! I'll just post what I wrote as I went.
    • First Death, Ultra Magnus, and it’s from a fusion cannon. Obvious suspect is Megatron, but he doesn't have his anymore. Tarn, on the other hand, has two…
    • So Nautica’s wrench is basically her Sonic Screwdriver?
    • So, if this is the future, not the quantum suicide theory, than First Aid is right about Drift coming back.
    • What just happened with the briefcase and the changing letter in the background? Is it supposed to be implied the case has some attention deflector like in the Magnus armor or something?
    • Everyone on the bridge is in alt mode. Did were they interrupted in another one of Tailgate’s alt mode parties?
    • Two things. First, I though the whole brains in the mouth thing Megs found was supposed to hint at the Spark Eater, but I guess I was wrong. It was actually the DJD. Second, Overlord was still in his cell. I don’t think this is the future anymore.
    • Oh my gosh! Rewind is alive! I honestly don’t know how to react other than a mix between scared and excited!

    Future Lost Light death count: 16

    Ultra Magnus
    Ratchet
    Drift
    Hound
    Tailgate
    Blaster
    Huffer
    Dogfight?
    Strafe
    Highbrow?
    Five more ‘bots in alt mode I can’t recognize.
    Overlord
    Perceptor
    Swerve
    Whirl

    *Stands proud and strong atop Fort Pillow-Feel* You have served me well.

    Really enjoyed reading that. Makes me want more. Need it now. I wonder what happened to the crew. Did they disappear because of this alternate future LL or for some as of yet unknown reason.

    So, we know what Tarn's reaction to Megatron's defection is going to be, he's, loyal to the Decepticons instead of Megatron just like Soundwave.

    Ravage seems to be in some kind of contact with Soundwave as he knows what Galvatron's plans involve, but it seems like he's on the ship because he's genuinely curious about Megatron being an autobot.

    Rereading that scene, I realize the number was the elevator going down, and for some reason the panels are in an odd order

    I just did a quick search in regards to the "Amica Endura" Nightbeat mentions in the elevator scene and I'm going to guess that and Amica Endura is the Cybertronian equivalent of a Boyfriend/Girlfriend like the Conjunx Endura is a spouse as Amica means "sweetheart".

    Also, I find it hilarious that Nautica calls Brainstorm "Stormy".

    I think Amica Endura is more like 'best friend' or 'eternal friend'. Amica means Friend in latin. You know, as in 'amicable'.

    That page only makes sense if you read the panels by floor in descending order. Seemingly, what the briefcase does is
    scramble time
    .

    Actually, that's a curious one.
    Megatron is not on the alternative LL that we can see, so why would the DJD attack it?

    Amice is friend in Latin, Amica means "Lady Friend" when translated literally.

    I think I see Smokescreen, Waverider, and what seems to be Trailcutter, Powerglide (I think a previous issue had Powerglide with those rotors or something), Scoop, Bluestreak and possibly Inferno or Grapple, although I counted 7.

    And wow, that one DJD shot is gruesome as hell.

    And James Roberts knocks it out of the park. Everything in that issue, the drama, the suspense, the mystery
    AND THE FREAKING BRIEFCASE! (also damn you James,still hoping for some amazing thing in the briefcase) REWIND, THE DJD IS BACK!!!!!, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!

    Also probably my only hiccup was that i believe that conversation between Megatron and Ravage, while providing a great deal of megatron's new characterizaiton, upto and after the trial felt a bit long.

    No, that's just the result of Tarn killing them, Skids mentions that Tarn forces people to switch modes before they die so that he can harvest their transformation cogs. Helex, meanwhile, forces people to eat their own brains.

    Man, the DJD are brutal.

    Also Digilaut's theory still works as there was no sign of an alternate Skids or any of the crew who joined later, as well as the fact that Rewind and Overlord are still on board.

    That was so awesome! It read like a Doctor Who episode! And what's that? A sonic wrench? Is Nautica the Doctor? :D  :D  :D  I was waiting for her to utter something like perception filter to Brainstorm's briefcase.
