They mentioned early on that they would need to have a compatible spark-type to Brainstorm's in order to take part in the time travel, so it's possible that there isn't anyone else. Though considering half of the main cast qualify, I find it hard to believe that "compatibility" is that rare.

I wonder now if he's actually doing anything or if it's just a red herring, he's just gone on a crazy jaunt through time to prove that he can like the mad scientist that he is, and Rodimus and co. are the ones who inadvertently cause the new timeline.

Agreed. It's fun but not really substantial. As part of the story arc it's perfectly fine, but as a standalone issue it's a little bit underwhelming considering what it's following up.

That said, I always enjoy our visits with the actually-heroic millions-of-years-ago-Orion, so I won't complain too much.

I got the impression that he might have put together what was going on on his own, and that's why he was suspiciously trusting of them. The fact that Chromedome and Whirl both did a very poor job of their excuse-making was probably enough to at least make him suspicious. Megatron probably didn't help either.

...I missed that entirely. Good catch!

I got a good laugh out of that too.

"For god's sake don't kill anyone!"

Two minutes later: "Blow up that orbital platform!"

Glitch's powers were touch-triggered and immediate, weren't they? If they were going to cause a problem I think they'd have done so right away, so Trailbreaker and the rest wouldn't have been memory-wiped. It seems like they all were, so I guess nothing happened?

Maybe Glitch has been able to figure out how to better control his powers since we last saw him?
