Look, I'm not all that fond of Miko either, but I don't bash her for the sake of bashing her, which is what this very much feels like.
I'm not bashing her just for the hell of it. I hate it when any character does this. I understand why it's done, from a writer's viewpoint, but it always makes me feel like the character is asking a stupid question (scared or not).

I still hate it, you can't change that.
Her question was perfectly valid as it provided the necessary exposition to the audience. Any one of the kids could have asked it any would have gotten the same effect.
If I were in one of those canisters, I
would have asked the same question. Though I might have rephrased it a bit (like, "If the Omega Lock is used on Earth, what's gonna happen to it?" or something), but I'd darn well want to know what that madman was going to do to my homeworld. Especially if he went to such trouble to hunt me down, capture me, bring me to another world, and threaten to kill me as part of a ransom. I would be scared and fearful for myself and for my home.

It also bears a striking resemblance to Project: Genesis from the Star Trek
movies, only a Cybertronian equivalent that uses mechanical life instead of organic life.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
