    The shuttle at the back of Optimus is a NASA Shuttle. Now this Shuttle likely based upon reversed engineered Cybertronian technology. On Megatron and the Ark. There were rumors before of a new Space Race between the US and Russia I'm not sure if this is the product.

    It is likely built or re-purposed for Autobot exile. Which mean bigger than the regular Shuttle whose fleet which was retired.

    I have a feeling the Autobots will pull a rescue of Chicago like the rescue of Autobot City with the shuttle swooping in dropping Bots and turn the tide.

    Nah, it'll probably be "all robots banished from earth!" at the end.

    I look at that and think the "prequel" novel for the first movie, Ghosts of Yesteryear, which discusses the US Military reverse engineering Megatron to make a space vehicle capable of going out of our solar system, etc

    Maybe (as theorised on some other threads) Optimus, and a few other autobots (perhaps Lennox as well, i dunno) go to the moon to investigate the ship, but come back, and this is just Optimus telling Sam that he's going to have to fight whilst they're away...

    I do see the nasa logo and even the word Discovery!

    Good eye, guys!

    Are the sizes right? The Ark seems kinda small to be a shuttle booster?

    Good ideas, all around...

    If there is an exile, it'll most likely be in the middle, paving the way for the Decepticon invasion

    ^ This

    and while leaving they go to the Ark and look around, find sentinel and the wreckers, who convince them to return to earth to help stop the decepticons from doing something.

    Because it is not the Ark. Its a vehicle meant to accommodate the Autobots.

    That is the Ark. Have you not seen the toy of it? The front of the craft is IDENTICAL.

    You were saying?

    If you look closely behind Prime it has a Shuttle and two solid state state rockets attached to it. The CGI altering the rocket.

    That's what I think. I feel the movie is gonna be the Autobots leaving Earth, forcing the humans to fight for themselves. The Decepticons then take over.

    Sounds reasonable. From the looks of the trailer, it looks like the humans barely fight back when the Decepticons invade. They ruin entire cities, and I'm guessing if the Autobots were there in the first place, they wouldn't let that happen.

    I don't think they are using it to go to the moon to look for Sentinel. I think he's already on Earth. I mean, he already has an alt mode confirmed. If he only comes in at the ending fight sequence, why waste time with him having an Earth alt. mode? I think it's like someone else said, just for the Autobot exile. I still believe that the Ark and Sentinel are on Earth from the start of the movie though.I mean, they did discover him in the 60's right? Why would they just leave him there? They took Megs into the Hoover Dam after they found him.

    Because Apollo modules aren't built for cargo. Our biggest manned space vehicles are the Space Shuttle and the Russian Buran. Neither of which ever reached the moon.

    Plus think about it does NASA have the capability to bring a space ship wreck or its giant robot contents to Earth?

    The Ark is on the moon it and its contents of robots can't be brought to Earth by humans.
