Taking place right after the end of Devastation
, our Differentiation
chapter continues Simon Furman's -Ation saga, which was halted with Maximum Dinobots
and then rebooted/retconned by the following series.
The SoD project will not ignore those reboots, but will also explain their creation with the story Magnificent Crisis
, which will allow us to develop the original storyline in our own direction: it's The Future Is -Ation
Our goal is to develop the original -Ation concepts, instead of retconning them into oblivion: Ore-13 on Earth, extreme human-cybertronian interface (Headmasters), Interplanetary Cold War, Nebulos' Rebirth and so on.
Protocolo SF-EJS-5 is of course a nod to the creators of the -Ation saga: Simon Furman and E.J. Su.
"5" as is in "the fifth -Ation story" (after Infiltration
is an emergency phase, one that is deployed only when the original Infiltration Plan is compromised by unforeseen events.
In our case, the "unforeseen event" was the attack of the Reapers: this heterogeneous group of alien beings attacked the Decepticons in order to draw Sixshot into their ranks, but they also meant to sweep away planet Earth, because the escalating conflicts on the planet are turning it into a danger to the galaxy.
Apparently, the Decepticons/Reapers battle was just what the Decepticons needed to be reunited under Megatron's command: Starscream and Blitzwing seem only too eager to obey him.
