Seeing as the root meanings for the word dinosaur, scientifically speaking, mean "terrible lizard," I wouldn't be surprised if Shockwave himself, being the scientist that he is, could have accurately come up with that name himself, coincidentally.
Then again, the root words that science based its names off of we're derived from Latin, which would have been too far in the future, according to the time setting of this story.
Then AGAIN, in Dotm, Sentinel said that the space bridge bends the fabric of TIME and space and defies our laws of physics.
THEN AGAIN, in Dotm, Sentinel was the one to create the space bridge, not Shockwave, and would thus render the comparison between the two incompatible.
well, getting that particular mix of different dinosaur species would require a fair amount of bending time and space anyway, so why worry?
Like I said, about the cockpits: It doesn't matter, just enjoy!
