Summary

Notes

Continuity Inquiries

  • Megatron knew a great deal about Cybertronian history, yet apparently did not know the real nature of Starscream and his demise. However, Megatron might have been playing dumb to lure Starscream into being bolder with his actions. It should also be of note that both the Predacon and Maximal Elders had a large portion of his records sealed due to his history.

Transformers references

  • Obviously, Starscream himself firmly ties Beast Wars to established G1 history.
  • Starscream's spark, or "ghost" as it was then called, had possessed several Decepticons (including Cyclonus, Scourge, and Trypticon) in the G1 episodes "Starscream's Ghost" and "Ghost in the Machine."
  • During the episode, if you look closely, one of Waspinator's Predacon insignias on the side of his cranium changes into Decepticon insignia while Starscream's spark is inhabiting his superstructure.

Real-World references

  • Optimus Primal says "Hasta la vista, Starscream." This is a reference to Terminator 2.
  • As he flies away immediately after saying this, Optimus Primal is seen wearing a pair of sunglasses. This may or may not be a reference to the same movie.
