    With the newly decided 13th Zodiac Constellation Ophiuchus do you think that there will be a retcon to add him to the line up of the Covenant of Primus? (since the members are all based upon the Zodiac)

    My thoughts are that "Ophiucron" was just doing clean-up duty during the whole Omega Point deal or something :D

    Ophiuchus and the shift doesn't apply to the Tropical Zodiac (which is what the West uses). It ONLY applies to the Sidereal Zodiac used in the East.

    Take from that, what you will.

    Therefore, the Japanese continuity should have a new Zodiac member.

    You're thinking of the original 13 Transformers.

    The Covenant was a group of 12 Transformers who were based on Zodiac signs.

    Kudos, you just made me look up something on the Wiki to figure out what the heck is going on. XD

    In other non-news, astrology is as meaningless as it ever was, and it is apparently a ghastly slow news day when a quip by an astronomer based on something all astronomers know anyway gets mutated into THEY ARE CHANGING THE ZODIAC.
