    When the ark transforms into Omega Supreme, is it just a giant mechanized machine controlled by Ratchet and Sari? Or is it a sentient being? If it does have a mind of its own, then what are Sari and Ratchet doing in the control room? It almost looks like Ratchet's piloting the darn thing and Sari's giving it energy boosts with her key.

    hard to say for sure considering it hasn't aired..... in any english language anyway. From what I could gather from soundless recording on youtube. He appears to be sentient, with Ratchet onboard to monitor systems and make sure he stays operational. Sari seems to help by using her key for either powerboosts or on the fly repairs. I say he's sentient because at the end of part two, it appears his "sacrifice" was his own doing as he ejected Ratchet and Sari before doing so.

    Maybe he operates somewhat like a Headmaster...except of course the head doesn't remove and almost anyone can assist at the controls...

    From the clip, it looks like Omega is sentient, but someone needs to be on board to release the safety lockouts on his weapon systems (since when Ratchet used his arm prongs, they were like two keys turned in a lock to open up Omega's firepower).

    It is also possible that due to the way Omega is introduced that the original Omega-class robots were non-sentient, but because Allspark shards were used on Omega, he gained some sentience that way.

    So this marks the first time an animated character dies?

    He didn't die, apparently - Magmatron, who first viewed the episode, says that Omega just got sucked into the spacebridge.

    Exactly. Title says spoilers for a reason. :lol 

    I have to agree with Sol Fury. It seems that he's sentient and just needs someone to unlock his weapons systems and what not. It's hard to say at this point if he gained setience via the Allspark shards or if he was already alive though. It may not even be something that is answered within the episode he shows up, but I hope it is as you'd think Ratchet might act surprised if Omega Supreme suddenly acts setient if he's supposed to be just a giant mech for Autobots.
