    Sentinel isn't exactly the shinning example of Autobot ideals , not to mention he's pretty much useless.

    Should he get kicked out of the Elite Guard and demoted?

    More and more character witnesses are seeing, even his fellow Guardmen, that he is negligent of his duty.

    Sentinel may be a jerk, but he is loyal. He doesn't deserve to be fired but maybe demoted.

    I wouldn't say he's pretty useless considering if it wasn't for him Starscream would've nailed both Prime and himself at episode 19.

    Na, should be premoted to an Ultra. I think it would shake things up and take the autobots in a new direction. Plus he is good at giving orders.

    he totally sucked at giving orders-remember when Magnus went down?

    and while i wish he would be demoted, he seems to make Magnus look better, so Magnus will probably keep him around

    I wouldn't say he's useless, but he does deserve to be demoted. I mean, he might be a jerk, but he does what Magnus tells him. Maybe he'll prove to be a better Elite Guard officer in future episodes...Who knows.

    Sentinel Prime definitely deserves to be court-martialled and disciplined. Demotion would appear to be a perfect solution - I'm not sure if firing him would be wise, though, as the guy's skills may come in useful - but I really wonder if doing so would make him learn any lesson. I've got the sneaking feeling that all this would accomplish would be to make him more angry and bitter.

    Sentinel is so destined to end up captaining a maintenance crew...

    Some form of repremand may be in order but expulsion or demotion is a bit severe. Perhaps some kind of probationary period where his decisions are watched more closely. He may be an ass but he follows the orders given to him.

    Everyone loves an ass-kisser. And Ultra Magnus was perfectly fine trying to get Prime to lie to the Autobot High Council about the AllSpark shards (even though it was a lie to keep the Decepticons around the galaxy unawares of the truth).

    Therefore, Magnus will keep Sentinel Prime at his current position, so his ass can always be kissed.

    Fired? No.

    it depends on how useful he is. he might be one of the greatest fighters on cybertron, only he hasnt been off world before. his anger towards prime, fear of the unknown organics, and the fact hes never seen a decepticon before could explain alot of why he comes across as a less than professional jerk.

    once he got over his initial surprise at seeing a decepticon, he managed to stand up against starscream better prime and his whole crew did. in their first fight with him. and we havent even seen him going all out with his shield and lance. he seemed overwhelmed by everything on earth, and rather than pay attention and be cautious his dislike for optimus caused him to make alot of stupid mistakes.

    i think until we see him in action away from optimus its hard to say. if you ask the question "had optimus and sentinel had their history, would optimus and his crew have been better off with sentinel among them?" the answer would be a very definite yes.

    I say keep him as a prime. His character is a good antagonist and makes optimus look even better and adds flavor to the show
