I get the feeling the Autobots will at least save the Earth but fail to save Cybertron.

It's a simple question. How would she possibly know that the Omega Lock would affect Earth differently form Cybertron?

Only thing I can find wrong with her asking it was her delivery, which sounded a bit too calm for the severity of the situation. Granted ,she did sound concerned, but the worry is still a bit on the subtle side.

Looks like a great finale! [spoiler]I just hope they don't kill off any more cons... Dreadwing was a huge waste IMO.[/spoiler]. But aside from that this has become my favorite incarnation of transformers; hopefully the next movie coming out doesn't mean this will be canceled.

What baffles me is how she came up with such a dumb question in the first place. Megatron just took over Cybertron, the Autobots are held prisoner, Optimus says "No" in worry right after a bridge is opened preparing for the Omega Lock's beam, and the Omega Lock is supposed to be a good thing for Earth? She can't put the puzzle pieces together?

She is a child.

And, all that they probably told her about the Omega Lock was that it could revive Cybertron, implying that it heals dying planets. To see Optimus's frantic reaction to a "planet-healing machine" being used on Earth would naturally beg the question.

She is a rebellious teenager that doesn't consider danger before action. Many teenagers are like this now; I blame media.

Overall, she is a character trying to [pathetically] move the story along by asking some questions the audience might ask.

Look, I'm not saying Miko should've already known that the Omega Lock would destroy all of Earth's indigenous life. I'm saying that she shouldn't have been as optimistic as she was about what the Decepticons are doing with her planet.

You're missing my point. Aside from what the character is feeling, the writers are using Miko to have the audience understand what's going on.

She wasn't optimistic at all, she is a frightened child trying to make sense of a situation where she has zero control.

Optimistic? There was a sense of hesitance, confusion, and subtle worry in her tone. She asked out of bewilderment and fearful concern.

Listen to her dialogue again. Her delivery was anything but cheerful.

She just didn't ask the question in one of those cliche, over-the-top, cartoony, "PANIC PANIC WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!" spats that children's entertainment has so accustomed us to in situations like these. Sometimes, mere concern is all that's needed.

She said that if the Omega Lock could restore Cybertron that it should do the same for Earth. Whether this was right or not, she was hoping this was the case. While she was probably still frightened, she came off to me as being optimistic, to whatever little or big degree.

Her exact words were, "If the Omega Lock can restore Cybertron, it'll do the same to Earth... right?"

The "right" is the key here. She's asking for reassurance that everything will be alright, which is what any frightened person would ask for in such a situation.

And you are completely ignoring her facial expressions and body movements, which show obvious signs of fear and uncertainty.

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).

Which is something you would expect a frightened child to do.
