Wait, if you give Shockwave your CNA to make more seekers, two questions. 1. Since we know that is he uses just your CNA it'll just make clones of you, and everyone knows how that panned out, he's going to probably need to combine your CNA with someone elses. Do you know who that'll be? 2. If he makes seekers with you're CNA, that technically will make you a parent, wouldn't it? Via laws of biology and life and such.
Via laws of organic biology perhaps. Parents give genetic material in the act of creating life. The two are inseparable. Since Cybertronians do not procreate, there is no comparable act. Mixing up some CNA doesn’t create a new Cybertronian - you need a split Spark for that. I would no more be those Seekers’ parent than I was my clones’ parent. I would merely be contributing code to tell the Spark what sort of frame to build for itself. From the way Shockwave was talking, I assume he would splice new code from the CNA samples of several other Seekers. Probably samples he’s had in storage since he murdered them in his experiments.
