This brings us to another question. Who would have won. Galvatron or Scorponok. Scorponok had the size advantage, but Galvatron's cannon mode was about the size of Scorponok's gun, so he probably could have killed him with a few blasts. Also, he could just blast open his armor (the nebulons did it easily enough), and snuck inside, killing Zarak, thus immobilizing Scorponok, which he could supply with a head that was loyal to him. Overall, I'd say that Galvatron would have won because he is insane, and not afraid of death,so he would fight to the bloody end.

Ever seen the jap. Headmasters? Galvatron loses the struggle for leadership, and his life and Zarak takes over. Jap headmasters actually had alot of main characters biting the bullet, plus we get to see more than a sixty second cameo of sixshot.

I heard something about this recently concerning the possibility of 'Jedi' becoming one too.

Sorry to ruin your fun, but the answer is no.

Humourless sort, ain't she?
the long-term cost of such unthinking behavior is almost beyond reckoning, if enough people choose to engage in this form of acting out.
Image to ye, ma'am... at least I'm not going down on a form as a member of the CoE by default...

In replying as such, I felt more attachment to a course of actions entered into by a bunch of my fellow human beings than anything anyone in the decaying socio-political edifice(s) that are our national govt/faith ever did...

Hmmm... wonder what Euan Blair put down...

She's spoiled my fun on numerous occations. I consider funny that a state in USA would've had defined the value of pi as 3 by law, but she proved that wrong as well.

No fun she is.

I believe it was from the link I posted in the previous message concerning the national cencus and TF as a religion.

Technically, I would be classed as CoE, despite never having attended any kind of regular worship. This in itself is mildly cool, since it likely debars me from the premises of a number of other denominations...

I'm not CoE, although I prefer its politics to some others... I'm not of any organised religion; therefore my creed (which is shared by others) is debarred from the UK census, which is a massively hypocritical document.

There is absolutely no reason why members of a religion must physically meet or partake in acts of shared worship...

No, Vector Sigma was a super computer that programmed the transformers with their personalities. It was probably built by the Quints. Hears a thought, I believe that Vector Sigma actually sewed the seeds of the transformers' rebelion. From the "Key to Vector Sigma," it can be judged that it was a sentient being. As such, it must have sensed the plight of the transformers. One day, it created the personality of Alpha Trion, and other such heroes of that era, and it gave them the ability to see that they had to become free, for the Quintessons were cruel rulers.
