The first trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon has hit the web, and it’s huge news in the movie blogosphere. In related news, I pray for the day when these terrible movies aren’t considered huge news. (*makes robot sound while wanking dismissively*)
During the Apollo 11 mission, the astronauts end up on the far side of the moon or “dark on the rock,” as it were and they have 21 minutes to investigate what seems to be a crashed ship. The hull has been breached. Extensive damage. We are not alone in the universe.
Most agree that the Transformer who crashed on the moon in 1969, and is seen in this teaser, is most likely Alpha Trion.
Alpha Trion is one of the Original Thirteen Transformers…He is generally depicted as an ancient mechanoid with a link to Optimus Prime.

Alpha Trion is, of course, not to be confused with ‘Bater Trion, the virgin bot who forever sacrificed the touch of a woman to spend his life researching Transformers lineages.
