Broke the Matrix
Even without Unicron there... it just feels like a place where it's like, "Okay, where's a good place to dump Unicron? How about here? No one wants to go here, anyway."
Even the title has an air of creepiness to it, though that might be the musical riff that plays during this part of the intro...
Oh, and let's not forget this. Granted, it's not exactly "space," but I'm counting it anyway.
The weird thing is... I'm kinda here for it? I like space stuff, and it's usually pretty neat and wondrous, but having a version that adds a sort of scariness, or at least dread to it... I dunno, I find it kind of fascinating. Most times, it's like "hey, space exploration seems like it would be neat," but then looking at some of this, and it's like, "nope, I'm good staying right here, thanks."
I feel like there's some other element to how it looks that makes it seem foreboding, too, but I can't quite describe it. Like something in how the stars, or even just the darkness is rendered.
I love it.
I think it even goes back to Season 3 of the G1 cartoon. Sometimes space there just seemed very... cold. The soundtrack they used (which I love) probably helped in some cases, too.
Anyway, I just had to put this out there. Anyone else feel the same way? Got any good shots I missed? Does it extend beyond these two shows? I was just watching the intros and reading some TFWiki articles when I thought to talk about it here. Micron Legend's didn't seem so bad, though, as a point in the "others didn't seem this way to me" column, but I haven't seen all of JG1, either.
