It's okay not to like HoS but to say it doesn't make sense and say that it is pointless or stupid shows that you don't have a firm understanding. There were many significant points in history during the Steam Age: Transcontinental Railroad, Civil War, Electricity, and First Flight. This is why you are seeing the Wild West, Durigibles, and all these different steampowered vehicles.
Vehicles during this age included: Steam engines, Ironclads, Fire Engines, Hot Air Balloons, and proto type amphibians and airplanes.
I agree with you to a certain extent. I am a big history buff. Ive even been to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. I recently watched "The men that built America" and "Mankind - The Story of All of Us" so I know alot about the 1800's industrial revolution.
But heres my thing...I like to keep my science fiction and my history seperated. Im not a big fan of gimmick crossovers. If Im watching a western or civil war drama, I dont want to see giant robots or a Delorean. And if Im watching (or reading) a science fiction saga, I want as little human related content as possible. Lets leave the established Transformers timeline alone. They awakended from stasis mode in the 1980's. I dont need to see alternate storylines with cowboys, ancient Egyptians, the Knights Templar, or Cro Magnons.
Also on this website, it seems that humor is often mistaken for ignorance.
