    In ROTF we are introduced to the Nemesis. A large hidden ship commanded by the Fallen. In the first DOTM trailer we see and later confirmed to be the Ark on the Moon, a ship commanded by Sentinel Prime. Likely the expedition mentioned in ROTF by Sam. In the Super Bowl trailer we see the Decepticons have a fleet of ships invading Earth. These ships are smaller when compared to the Nemesis.

    I'm still hoping for the Nemesis to show up in DOTM serving as a mother ship or flagship of the Decepticon fleet.

    It starting to look like the Autobots and Humans best chance is the wrecked Ark and its likely stasis locked crew.

    It would be cool to see the nemesis and the ark in the movie. I hope it happens. It would be a good way to connect ROTF to DOTM. They never did say why the nemesis ship had crash landed and it was hard to tell where it was. Maybe they can briefly explain that in the new film?

    For some strange reason, the Decepticons have tons of space ships (looks like even the ships are clones), and the Autobots only have giant mech tech guns in the movie. It seems like that movie cowboys giant guns vs alien space ships.

    Likely Shockwave's fleet, who did not have much better to do while waiting for Megatron and Starscream to bring home the Energon.

    The ships in the trailer remind me of the Unicron Trilogy. The Doomsday in the prologue of Armada and the Seeker Ship fleet in Cybertron.

    Phew, for a moment I was afraid that this thread was about stuff like Megatron/Starscream shipping.

    Turns out that big prop turns out to be a manned Decepticon fighter which is commandeered.

    Something else I just noticed is that in the trailer that is the back end of the Ark we see. Always thought that was the front :lol

    You can see the thrusters and it also has those two large antennae sticking out of the back just like on the toy.

    I'm glad they are going a bit more with ships. I mean what geek worth his geekdom doesn't love a good space battle. Plus there is just something way cooler about Transformers having space ships than having them fly across the vastness of space by themselves.

    Fingers crossed that we get some sort of battle between the ships in a flashback to explain why they crashed where they did. I'd like to think the Ark went down in battle and not just from bad piloting.

    The Expanded Universe stuff also took advantage of the Ark and Nemesis, albeit they were both different than the ones we've seen in the films. Ghosts of Yesterday and Defiance had both ships if I remember right.

    Dude, I think you actually might be right about that one. Those ships in the trailer look alot like the prop used on set. The only thing that irks me is why would humans be able to pilot it?

    Maybe they're sized for bots like Frenzy to pilot them.

    Or they could possibly be Decepticon ships and sam and carly or whoever hijack them to fight back?
    or
    They are from the Ark and used by small autobots for sky battle?

    To me it always looked like it came to rest on the moon's surface after being bombarded by another Decepticon ship, then became covered with dust and rocks and sank into the crust over time.

    I dunno, those two antennae looked like cannons to me at first. Now finally seeing the full design of the Ark it looks pretty freaking sweet. I think it could have a little more color (Maybe some more gold/bronze to it) but it's cool nonetheless.

    Glad I'm not the only one who was afraid of that.

    A toy of the Ark?

    Makes me wonder if other ships in DOTM will get toys.
