Using logic it would be very difficult to happen, unless NASA were complicit.
Im sure he couldnt just render it as his earth bound form. Surely NASA would know how many shuttles they have
And he couldnt really replace an existing one, as Im sure NASA have them under tight security.
And as for the shuttle being a cybertonian original design, well its far to earth bound like for that to ring true.
Im sure if he is a shuttle and i doubt he will be, that these concerns will not be addressed
While there is logic in what your saying, this was somewhat addressed in ROTF. When Simons was in the basment, he shows pictures of other seekers that the goverment were aware of. So at some point the Goverment was aware of them being on our planet in "disgise".
Now considering the suppose plot of DOTM is the space race, its possible that if Silverbolt is this Space shuttle (and thats a big if since all this is just speculation at this point) that the goverment is well aware of him. heck, they could have even provided the shuttle for him to scan in return for his knowledge.
Though to be honest, even if there was no explanation as to why he is a shuttle, i really don't see it impacting the story.
i dont see any explanation being provided its bay
