The Iacon relics storyline seem to be a logical, but also a convenient way to play out the unending treasure-hunting plot this series seems to thrive on. Then again, lots of TF series always seem to be about Autobots and Decepticons racing to find something. In G1, it was energy, in Beast Wars it was stasis pods or protoforms and energon, in TFA it was the Allspark or Allspark fragments. Now it's artifacts from Cybertron. And this plot was already starting to be old back in season one as many devices from Cybterton kept popping up on Earth. And now the Iacon database leading to search for the Iacon relics is obviously a way for the treasure hunt to make sense. The fact that the database decryption wasn't complete is further hint there'll be more to look for. But they can't possibly keep dragging this until the show's over, or would they? So what are they going to do after the Iacon relics? More set of Cybertronian objects from other facilities? Or will they finally put the focus back on stopping Decepticons from conquering Earth?
