I am a bit confused by this wording: "A stasis pod is used to store a Transformer protoform newborn until it is given a spark and formatted into an adult Transformer." The protoform already has a spark before it is put inside the pod, doesn't it? --KilMichaelMcC 18:35, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Not always. It seems they can be used to transport unformated protoforms with sparks, like Airazor or Inferno, or they can just contain protoforms without sparks "blanks" like the one Rhinox used for Optimus when he brought him back. Tantrum

The DW MTMTE entry on stasis pods uses similar wording. Until the spark is "installed," it's not a Transformer lifeform. They seem to be kept separate until the pod scans for lifeforms. --ItsWalky 21:14, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Ah, I see. While we can see Airazor's spark in the middle of her protoform body, it isn't actually connected to it, at first. --KilMichaelMcC 23:24, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
I adjusted the phrasing in the article, to use the word "install" which I think makes it clearer. --KilMichaelMcC 02:21, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
And there was great rejoicing! --ItsWalky 02:27, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
