While most of the DECEPTICONS viewed MEGATRONís defeat and seemingly extinguished spark as a blow to their cause, STARSCREAM viewed it as an opportunity for his own cause. STARSCREAM has always lived in MEGATRONís shadow, and it burns him constantly. He feels heís done as much if not more than MEGATRON in the name of the DECEPTICON cause, but he simply lacks MEGATRONís charisma to inspire others to follow him. STARSCREAM makes up for this failing with lies, deceit, manipulation and when all else failsÖMORE lies, deceit and manipulation. STARSCREAM would love nothing more than to obtain the ALLSPARK himself, win the devotion of the DECEPTICONS and usurp MEGATRONís rule. Heís driven by jealousy, pure and simple. A Machiavellian manipulator who never met an ally he wasnít willing to stab in the back to get what he wants.

Robot Mode Power: STARSCREAM has incredible speed, maneuverability, and hovering capabilities. He can fly rings round the AUTOBOTS. In addition, he can affect a sonic scream and produce powerful blasts of sound that can send enemies spinning through the atmosphere. 

Vehicle Mode Appearance: Harrier Jet.

Character description from package "tech spec":  No one really likes Starscream, not even the other Decepticons.  Who can blame them though?  He'll do whatever it takes to gain control of the Decepticons, even going so far as trying to destroy his commander Megatron directly.  Of course, he's alsonearly as powerful as Megatron, and just as sneaky.  He's the fastest flier there is, and even Optimus Prime would have a hard time beating him in a fight.  He's the best there is at what he does.  Even so he sometimes overrates himself,  and that's why he's second in command.

Galactic Powers and Abilities:
> Fastest vehicle mode of any Decepticon.
> Aerial assault and tactical blitz expert.
> Weapons can shatter metal and disrupt electronics

Bibliography of significant appearances: Arguably, the most heavily featured Decepticons, Starscream played a major role in all the events of the "Animated" series.  Transform and Roll Out and especially in the last, part 3.  His prominent role and "death" in Megatron Rising, part 2...  He returned to prominence in 16 Mission Accomplished, 20 A Fistful of Energon and very the very big part he played in episodes 25 and 26 A Bridge Too Close parts 1 and part 2.
