You know what’s the bad part of Thirst..
That Megatron punished Starscream because he thought Starscream wanted to take Dark Energon for himself and try to overthrow Megatron again.
While Starscream only tried to win Megatron’s favour and praise.
And that’s really sad because Megatron pretty much pushed him away again but this time Starscream wasn’t guilty of what he was accused of.
And maybe the first time Megatron has punished Starscream has been a misunderstanding as well?
I generally keep myself out of fandom conversations like this because ehhh but while Megatron did initially accuse him of using the Dark Energon on himself, the fact is that wasn’t what he was punished for.
Yes Megatron ignored him initially, and that is rude as fuck, but Starscream could’ve and <i>should’ve</i> waited and his actions, while understandable, are still inexcusable.
Megatron ordered Knock Out to hand his scientific projects over to Shockwave rather than allowing Starscream continued command over them, so I think he figured out or was told that Starscream had been the one who ordered Knock Out to use the Dark Energon, which led to the chain of events that ultimately led to the decimation/desertion of at least a third of the entire army. From Megatron’s perspective, whether or not Starscream was being intentionally traitorous or not really doesn’t matter.
Megatron didn’t punish Starscream out of belief that Starscream was using Dark Energon in an attempt to overthrow him, but for taking Dark Energon without Megatron’s approval and proceeding to fuck everything up. I’m not saying that Megatron’s method of punishment is by any means a good thing even by military standards, but Starscream (and to a lesser extent Knock Out) was entirely at fault in this instance, and Megatron didn’t punish him because he believed Starscream was intentionally traitorous. He punished him because Starscream acted severely out of conduct by shifting blame onto a subordinate and therefore lying to a commanding officer; taking and utilizing a resource that he had no real authorization on; neglecting to tell a commanding officer about a VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM the MOMENT it became clear that the situation had gotten out of hand; proceeding to effectively cripple the army due to his own pride and need for “keeping up appearances” for the sake of staying in good standing when the problem wasn’t immediately dealt with and putting literally everyone on the ship in danger.
So, basically, Starscream’s efforts to keep himself in Megatron’s “good graces” completely fucked himself over because he was thinking of himself and his own standing rather than the safety and welfare of the whole army. Which is sort of his job, being head of their military division.
Haha sorry this turned into a rant but yeah :I
In Prime Season 2 Armada when Starscream was searching for energon in a certain ship, was that ship half of the Harbinger? If not, what ship was it from where?
Yes, it is; the Harbinger was split in two, one piece buried under ground and the other resting against a cliff-face or something. Arachnid and Starscream in “Partners” were both at the first portion of the ship, before Starscream (reluctantly) supplied coordinates to the second half (where the Immobilizer was).
Although the question remains why, precisely, didn’t Starscream know that there was no energon aboard the ship if he’d found the second half at an earlier date, and why he left the Immobilizer behind during his first search instead of taking it with him.
Yeah the Duckerd is me /no shame
I REALLY LIKE THIS SHOW…
