Ok, like the title suggests, this is for a discussion at work I was having. My friend and co-worker believes that Starscream was an autobot before Megatron took power and created the Decepticons. Any ideas and thoughts? The history of how this came about. The discussion came about while we were talking about the game War for Cybertron. I didn't want to put this in that game thread, because the nature of the chat my friend and I were having is that this would be War for Cybertron into G1. He says that in the beginning of the Decepticon campaign you are Starscream as an Autobot? My stance is that Starscream remained Factionless as a Scientest, until he sided with Megatron in an attempt to gain power thus only being a Decepticon.
