Jetfire has the power to use the spacebridge, how?

Postby LadyBug » Sat Oct 22, 2011 8:02 pm

I was rewatching Return of the Fallen tonight and I just realized that Jetfire has the power/ability to use the spacebridge. Yet, as we learned in Dark of the Moon that the spacebridge's inventor/creator was Sentinel Prime; which you needed pillars to activate it. How can Jetfire activate the spacebridge without it? And why is he the only "Autobot" that has that ability? Or am I just over-analyzing Bay's movies too much?

Like so many others... :roll: It can be assumed that the two Space Bridges are of two separate natures, but use the same principle; a network for teleportation. The two natures I dub "RPG Warping" and "Sci-Fi Beaming"

Jetfire had the teleportation ability built in (maybe because he was a Seeker), but as demonstrated it can be unreliable if the user's memory isn't clear or just plain busted (warping in fiction often relies on memories in order to work properly). The Fallen has a similar feature, and uses it to greater effect.
Sentinel Prime's method is more simple, but a bit more limited. Using the pillar system forgoes the memory problem, but limits the potential trajectory to between a mere two points. In some cases that's actually a pro since it limits the risk of landing in the wrong spot, or even the wrong planet.

I'm not sure whichever came first, but I am certain that Jetfire and Sentinel Prime have their own methods of access to the Space Bridge.

Thank you. That actually helps clarify it a bit. ^^

Reading a bit into it more, it turns out Jetfire's version came first, but was phased out with the high rate of failure.

Space-Bridge was the technology of the Dinasty of Primes and the seekers.
Sentinel was genius a genius because he re-discovered and re-made the technology.
