And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 07:28 PM)

No, but I did *read* it from you...

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 03:06 PM)

The first real long-term space outposts belong to the Illuminati, but you didn't hear that from me.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Er, in SF I mean.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Yeah, the first long-term manned space outposts have traditionally been mining colonies and the like.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 12:19 PM)

Okay, but......do they have to be willing to be sent up?

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:10 AM)

A king isn't a king without subjects.

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:09 AM)

The rich will never flee to space until there's enough an underclass up there so they have someone to do all the jobs they won't. Same reason seasteading never takes off.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 10:45 AM)

Do we have to let them come back?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Well, it's only going to be the ultra-rich who are able to go for the first couple decades at least, so I doubt anyone's going to care much

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:32 AM)

They could be standing on the surface of the moon, insist they're in the middle of a giant set, and take off their helmet to "prove" it.

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

Assuming these are genuinely convinced conspiracy morons and not just internet trolls, I would assume "not a lot".

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

I wonder how all these recent private and international space travel programs are going to affect those craziacs who insist that the Earth is flat/the moon landing was forged/outer space isn't real etc.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

I don't know what's happening or why/how Carly took the top of what I'd always assumed was a jumpsuit off, but Decepticharge transcends all language barriers. And, hey, it's that unused Alternators Bumblebee design too!

Windcharger and Decepticharge having their US version "shields" is now canon apparently (which find silly but also an appropriate level of detail), and also Windcharger appears to have the head originally designed for him (Decepticharge's) but still on the Overdrive body (and not the Mustang like in that design sketch).
So he's just a fourth version of that mold with that head in this story lmao

Windcharger and Overdrive are different characters in the story, so the new head is probably used to distinguish him if Overdrive were to show up.  :)


Since there wasn't a Binaltech Windcharger, just Overdrive.

And (for a different mold's original use) Trailbreaker as a Swindle redeco, to show that he ultimately did end up surviving the Cosmic Rust (no need for the guy be killed off, let's give him some love). :)

The Year 2008:

The Cybertron warriors are on their triumphant return after defeating the powerful enemy, Black Convoy.

Grimlock: It all over...? Me Grimlock feel me forgetting something...

Grimlock: Ah!!

Grimlock: My Dinobots!!

A few years prior:

The Cybertron heroes who have won the Beast Wars are returning to the future. Their shuttle has now arrived in the time zone of the year 2005!

Computer: Anomalous occurrence in transwarp space--

Computer: A high energy reaction

Somebody: What?!


Cybertron City - Technical Division

Grimlock: Arrgh! Why! Why Dinobots not awake yet?!

Grimlock: Even Protector got body!

Perceptor: Grimlock, listen! The Dinobots' restoration has already been completed. You are the cause for their inability to wake up!

Grimlock: Me...?


According to Overdrive's survey, the "Original World" already had the Dinobots revived by 2005.

Soundwave's telepathic capability and a high frequency pulse could eliminate the Unleashers' psychic imprint that was driving animal-type robots wild.

In the proper timeline, we were able to have him heal the Dinobots in return for a prisoner exchange...

But in the BT World, Soundwave's whereabouts are unknown... Thus we had to wait till new Binaltech research produced results that could reproduce his ability.

Perceptor: The initial experiment of the Psychedevice was successful! Thanks to it, the Dinobots' restoration is complete, but...

Perceptor: The Psychotropic Energy engraved in your mind is growing day by day! To the extent that the Dinobots are once again affected.

Grimlock: What should me do...?

Perceptor: Aha! It seems the improved device was confidently completed this morning!

Carly: Grimlock, are you all right? You don't look well.

Perceptor: More and more reason to go now! Hurry up to the EDC Space Center!

Carly: I'll go with! I'm worried about you.


Protector: I'll accompany.

Lambor: I believe Commander Convoy and the others are transporting Alternium to the Space Center.

Communication: The Destrons have showed up at the EDC Space Center!

Lambor: What, no way!

Decepticharge: Ultra Magnus! He has the Matrix right now!

Decepticharge: I know it's there!

Ultra Magnus: Decepticharge! And Blackwidow, those troublesome foes!

Ultra Magnus: Servants of Unicron... Puppets that keep following orders even without their master.

Charger: The two of us need to protect the Alternium!


Charger: I'll take you down for sure today...!

Decepticharge: My bootleg, Charger!

Charger: You were originally my alternate bodyframe... I don't care how an evil soul got in it...

Charger: Only that you my hands take you down!!

Blackwidow: Uh-oh! I guess this match is over?

Blackwidow: Uugh! Alright!

Blackwidow: The Matrix... yes, yes, I will destroy it.

Blackwidow: But before that...


Blackwidow: This! I need to use this device!

Blackwidow: Wait? This is for human beings!

Carly: Something wrong?

Blackwidow: Damn it! I really am cursed.

Blackwidow: Aarrgh!!

Grimlock: Destron! How long are you gonna be a nuisance?

Blackwidow: Wait! I do not want to fight. I just want to be free!

Protector: Back, Grimlock! She is my friend.

Blackwidow: You...!?

Protector: It's been a while, Widow... hundreds of millions of years for me.

Protector: Grimlock's mental waves are acting on your beast DNA. Both are getting dangerous at this rate!

Carly: I'll do it! Help me out, Perceptor.


Carly: Lambor! Get them to lay down their weapons!

Lambor: Okay, that's gonna be tough!

Protector: Carly, this device enhances human mental power and lets telepathic abilities emerge.

Protector: I wonder if it'll change you forever...

Carly: That's not important right now, do it quickly!!

Protector: Success!

Outer space: Quintesson Base

Quintesson: The Binaltech have finally begun to dedicate their efforts to the evolution of the human species. That civilization is dangerous and must be sealed immediately.

Quintesson: Activate the quadrant lock!!

Blackwidow: Any chance you could you easily restore us, right?

Protector: Well...

Blackwidow: Why are you staying in this era if you're not getting involved?

Protector: I was the one who helped this offshoot world survive. Thus, I am responsible for your predicament...

Protector: So I swear I will bring you back to our friends!

Blackwidow: Aw, staying just for little ol' me?

Another day: Cybertron City

Grimlock: Dinobots have returned good!

Grimlock: Me Grimlock glad!

Sludge: Grimlock? Do anyone see Grimlock?

Slag: Me see nice, weak, and small Autobot.*

Slag: Grimlock our king.

Grimlock: And...

Dinobots: Long live Binaltech!


*"Autobot" as in the Japanese term for car Cybertrons.

One thing that stands out to me is Blackarachnia going by her Japanese name while Primal is simply known as the "Protector". Since Ichikawa previously made it a point that these were specifically versions of the English-language Beast Wars characters and not those of the Japanese dub, I guess we can just assume that Blackarachnia was renamed "Blackwidow" upon Unicron's putting her into her Binaltech body like how he renamed Megatron to Galvatron back in the 1986 movie.

Well, they're speaking Japanese to begin with, so they've already crossed that bridge, and I imagine reader considerations made Ichikawa keep her name consistent.

Them being from English Beast Wars doesn't really make a lot of sense, anyway. Why would they be affected by JG1 timeline shenanigans specifically as they travelled past 2005?
