by that logic why dont we use ants or monkeys to build stuff for us

aside from the size and strength differential its the technological divide

the cons would have to

- train humans in cybertonian machinery and tech
- keep a food supply for the humans
- ensure the human race reproduced
- deal with potential uprisings

all this effort for slaves which would be less efficient and less capable than themselves

I think Sentinel's earlier line about TF tech breaking "our laws of physics" was meant to sort of explain why Cybertron didn't immediately destroy either the Earth or Moon, even if it's a lame explanation.



I think that he was talking about the actual space bridge, since it can teleport things. It could be explained that somehow Cybertron is equipped to not be be affected by gravity or something.

In all fairness, most science-fiction ignore even the most basic scientific facts. Unicron and the Death Star should have caused havoc on their target planets/moons long before their 'preferred' method of destruction.


I didn't mention the whole gravity problem coz if you really wanted to make it make sense, it could be that Unicron/Deathstar/Spacebridge pillars all have gravity dampening field emitters that counter it... But the core problem being the use of humans, I didn't bother with the gravity deal.

yeah i have given the whole planet affecting our gravitational pull a pass too.

But the human slave labour seems unwieldy and cost inefficient

they need ratbat there to crunch the numbers
