In a recent post over at ShootForTheEdit.com, there was much discussion of Bay's involvement in the filming of the teaser trailer. Nelson responds by saying, "He said initially he didn't have anything to do with it and then later became totally involved. Who do you think shot those NASA, astronauts walking on the moon, and Ark scenes?" That's right, Seibertronians, he said the Ark! Is the confirmation that the downed spacecraft from the teaser is, in fact, in the Ark? To read more and decide for yourself, check out the original thread HERE

I knew it! I said so to myself when I watched the trailer. It feels good to be a dork.

I've been under the impression that it was the Ark cause of the look from the rear of the ship, and the scattered bodies inside like in MTMTE pt.1

Maybe the bot coming online at the end is actually Teletran-1... It's a Bay movie after all LOL

Aside from merely being given the name, how is this the Ark?

We mustn't forget about this:

If the craft we saw in the trailer is indeed the Ark, then there must be two Arks in Tyran like how there are two Nemesis ships.

it's obviously not THE Ark since Prime and his crew aren't in it, but it's an element of TF fiction that's been lifted and adapted for the films. They have a crash-landed and dormant Autobot ship, why not make Transfans happy and call it the Ark? Just like we got Carley, even though she's probably not much like G1 Carley.

Micheal Bay doesn't read the comics, so... yeah

ok, in the bay-verse, transformers turn into commits in order to enter the atmosphere of a planet....so do they have ships that the jettison out of ? Or do they just travel space in in commit-mode ?

initially i though ah-ha its the Nemesis, you know cuz it on the moon and all.....
but then my other reasoning that in the bay-verse there are no ships kicked in and i noticed how the wreckage looked like a hand.... :-?

and nodes anyone else think the the gold trimmed bot' at the end looks suspiciously like SentinelPrime?

Even if it IS the Ark - what happen to storyline people? The writers better have a good reason that nobody at NASA came forth with this info in the last two films and why none of the other Autobots knew about it! I'll be posting a letter to 'Bay & Company' and my own teaser trailer, in a day or so, as something fun and semi-serious for us fans - since theirs did neither tease nor excite ...stayed tuned!

I said the same thing about the Sentinel Prime thing. And maybe that is a hand. Maybe the ship is Omega Supream!

It wasn't meant to "tease" or "excite". It was meant to "announce" to the general public that TF3 is coming.

Okay yes, it was meant to do that, but my point is, it wasn't aimed at the TF fan base like some people like to believe. It was aimed at the general public and did enough to inform them that it's coming and get them interested.

But for fans? Not entirely.

Exactly. It was specially labeled an "announcement trailer", not a teaser. It's used to get the word out that something is coming.

As for the storyline, the first battle was covered up by the government. The second movie is kind of the "coming out". Lastly, as is illustrated in the trailer, NASA is kept out of the loop about the REAL reason for the moon landing. It is clear that Sector Seven got to the astronauts at some point and used their own equipment to jam the NASA equipment. It's as simple as that.

if it is the Ark, does that mean that's Noah Prime?

Remember the photos of Bay Filming TF3? Remember the ship Sam and That carly girl jumping on? That part looks suspiciously like the ship in the trailer...

The reason why the Autobots never said anything could be because it never came up or they didn't know it crashed there.
