    The human made bots died but what about Lockdown's henchmen who were in the ship?

    The Dinobots probably returned to the Knights' Terminus. They might even reclaim the ship as a whole.

    What are Lockdown's crewmen anyhow? They're too slim-looking to be Cybertronians.

    Well it's not like Lockdown himself looks very muscular compared to other Transformers. ;)

    Knowing Michael Bay, it probably won't be explained or never mentioned again.

    Isn't there already a Nemesis in the Bayverse?
    Except in a comic.

    Lockdowns remaining crew flew off in it. You can see it flying off at the end. Their leader was dead, their magnet weapon destroyed. No point in hanging around. The Dinobots probably would have headed back to the drop pod in the valley.

    Yet more plot hole and contradictions.

    In DOTM it was established that the autobots could not leave earths atmosphere without a ship and that prime could not fly without "flight tech" so it would have been logical for prime to take Lockdown's ship at the end of AOE.

    Instead prime suddenly and inexplicably acquired the ability to fly without the flight tech he needed in ROTF and DOTM - and not only that - the ability for orbital and interstellar flight.

    It's almost as if the writers for AOE hadn't even watched the previous movies.

    What I'm wondering is how the fuck Prime expects to get anywhere. Do they expect us to believe he can zoom around at warp speed? If not, he'll be "coming" for his creators for the next several thousand to million years.

    Is that an assumption - or was it actually mentioned?

    Dude. Lots of sci-fi films have space travel that goes against the actual time it takes to get around space.

    Even futurama

    True - but you do expect the movies to be consistent within their own established canon.

    Up to the point that Optimus blasted off - all of the canon pointed towards TFs needing a dedicated flying alt mode, flight tech or ships (particularly for interstellar flight) to get them around.

    I'd believe that trope, especially in a Mickeybay film, to be present, except for the fact that Lockdown mentions FTL travel multiple time, with the dark matter drives. Thus we can infer Michael and co have a grasp on the fact that space is huge as fuck.


    So my question stands.
