And the fairly predictable consequences suggest it wasn't a very good idea anyway.

Though as Brainstorm was also in the process of betraying the Decepticons he's basically a super betraying dick.
I think this Tumblr comment sums things up really well in relation to Brainstorm, and Roberts has endorsed it (apart from the point about Nuke). It includes many things Brainstorm would have taken into consideration when calling Tarn up, things I'd long since forgotten!
