One thing that just doesn't sit well with me is when I see Beast Wars characters put into series with Autobots and Decepticons. For example Black Arachnia, Waspinator, Cheetor, and Rattrap in Animated. I don't get angry or anything, I just kind of sigh at it. And I think I realized a good analogy as to why I dislike this. I've always seen the Beast Wars characters as Transformers: The Next Generation. Putting these characters into the Great War era is analogous to putting Data, Picard, Worf, or the Borg into the original Star Trek series. Yeah they are great characters but they aren't needed in that time frame. I just thought I'd share this wonderful analogy I realized.
