    Towards the end when Hardshell and Bulkhead were knocking each others nuts and bolts loose Ratchet arrived back to base during the fight.

    Why not tell Ratchet and send him out to help. I know he's not the best at combat but he could at least given Bulkhead back up.

    Because odds, and also he's their only freaking medic. If he dies, which he most likely would have, who would fix the 'Bots?

    Because while Fowler was busy telling Ratchet and Raf to shut up, Bulkhead got the upper hand.

    Didn't stop him from venturing out with Optimus in Operation Bumblebee and confronting Megatron and the oodles of Vehicons.

    Oh, please. The next thing you will ask is why Ratchet didnĀ“t use the Spark Extractor at the end of Flying Mind.:rolleyes:

    Probably because it looked like Ratchet had only JUST gotten back to the base after the events of Triage, and it was less than five minutes later that Bulkhead came flying through the Groundbridge? Plus, Bulkhead had not given the Autobot base any signal/message/whatever that amounted to a distress signal, so as far as the good guys knew up to Bulky coming back with a smoking crater in his behind, he had the situation under control.

    Yeah, but that's Megatron and Vehicons, not a squad of elite Insecticons.

    Ratchet had just gotten back, and he didn't know what Bulkhead's status was. By the time Agent Fowler explained the situation, Bulkhead had dumped the rock and was on his way back through the groundbridge. As far as he knew, Bulkhead was fine.

    I'm sure if Ratchet had know Bulkhead was in danger, he would have bridged to his location and dissected some Cons.

    Ratchet is no coward. In Flying Mind, he volunteered to infiltrate the Decepticon warship after Prime and the others got wasted by it - and he probably would have if Jack hadn't convinced him it would be safer for the humans to go.

    I'd love to see someone mashup all the episodes and have each scene happen simultaneously.
