    So towards the end of the series when Starscream starts to make the clones of him self and he makes slipstream. A different chacter(possibly another clone) makes a comment about it. Then Starscream says something like "dont ask" apparently thats supposed to be a major inside joke. But I have no idea what that is. Sorry if this doesnt make any sense. If I am just rambling, Mods go ahead and delete this. BUT if anybody has ANY idea what I am talking about I would love to know..

    It's not really an "inside joke", it's just that it's probably best if we never know why 1/5 of Starscream is female.

    I believe the "in side" joke it 2 pronged.

    1] In France, and maybe a few other countries, Starscream was depicted as a female with a female voice actor

    2] there has been some fan fiction that insinuates that Starscream was Megatrons "girl Friend"

    Well see, if I think of him as simply being Megatron's bitch, gender doesn't even need to play a roll.

    It's suppose to be a joke. But I wish they would've said it at the end of the season.

    Producer: Okay, we got Cowardly Starscream, Liar Starscream, Suckup Starscream, Egomaniac Starscream, and, um, what should we call the girl?

    Ex. Producer: Girl Starscream? And we'll make it a joke!

    Producer: Your a genious!

    Maybe she just received an extra X chromosome durng the cloning process.
    We're not supposed to know what aspect she has and honestly I don't think her creators even know. They probably just wanted a female Seeker.

    I thought Slipstream came from two things. Starscream b*chniness and the fact he acts like one. :p 

    Regardless of what you think Starscream was hitting on her.....or himself. I think Starscream is like Tracks with being in love with himself.
