    While Optimus Prime was talking to Alpha Trion through the Star Saber, we see that Alpha Trion has a different accent than his G1 counter-part. But what kind of accent does hie have? German? Russian?

    It's just George Takei's normal voice. No accent that's being put on.

    This is the logical answer, friends.

    George Takei is not bound by our pitiful grasp of accent; he is beyond such meagre things :D

    This. Honestly, he does have a rather unique accent, in a good way.
    Because, to be called the "new Chuck Norris", requires one to be a talent-less hack praised for things the person could never do...ever. Takei on the other hand is a great actor, and deserves the praise he receives.

    Umm...

    All I could think of was G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, with the aerial chase at the end and RipCord shouting "Tine!" or whatever he says, since with the Celtic accent it sort of sounds like "Tak'hin!"/"Takeian". :lol

    As several have said, it's George Takei's normal voice. However, George has an unusual voice to begin with. I'm Asian, and I'm pretty good at discerning the different Asian accents, and Takei's voice is not a traditional Japanese accent. So...I guess the answer is...Asian? :)

    because Chuck Norris is highly over-rated...
