From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

For information on the Doctor Who Universe from a metafictional standpoint, see separate article.

A universe may be considered as a space-time continuum, and the matter, energy, laws and biodata contained therein, such as it operates as a complete totality unto itself.

Contents

Cosmology

These universes exist within an expanse called the Void (DW: Army of Ghosts), an ur-space often conceptualised as an ocean in which they float. (FP: The Cosmology of the Spiral Politic)

A number of universes exist (DW: Inferno), but it is not known if that number is infinite or merely incalculably huge. (FP: The Cosmology of the Spiral Politic)

Some exist 'sideways' or 'parallel' to each other (DW: Battlefield), although such spatial language must be understood as simplification given that 'space' is a phenomenon local to within universes. (FP: The Cosmology of the Spiral Politic) Likewise, some exist 'before' (NA: All-Consuming Fire) or 'after' (MA: Millennial Rites) each other, although such temporal language must be understood as simplification given that 'time' is a phenomenon local to within universes. (FP: The Cosmology of the Spiral Politic)

Many universes develop a civilisation equivalent to that of the Time Lords - the first culture within a given reality to reach a level of sophistication which allows them to tailor the laws of that universe to their own nature. (MA: Cold Fusion)

The composition of the universe consists of galaxies which are made of stars which are orbited by planetary bodies. Earth, for example, lies in the Sol system of Mutter's Spiral, the galaxy closest to the Andromeda Galaxy.

Parallels

Most 'parallel' universes are exactly that: parallel. They run alongside each other but exist independently. They may share many common features but do not 'diverge' or 'branch off' from each other at any specific point. (FP: The Cosmology of the Spiral Politic)

The countless worlds in which the Roman Empire never fell or in which the Nazis won World War II (FP: Warlords of Utopia) are not twigs off the branch of some 'main' universe or paths that have split off at some particular juncture, but are entirely separate creations that share many, but not all, of the features of the familiar universe. (FP: The Cosmology of the Spiral Politic) The same would seem to hold true of Pete's World and Inferno Earth. (DW: Rise of the Cybermen, Inferno)

Those universes which share the most features in common may be considered as being located 'closest' to each other and those which share the least features in common may be considered as being 'furthest away' from each other. Although, again, the spatial terminology here is a simplification as 'space' only exists within universes. (FP: The Cosmology of the Spiral Politic)

It was, however, possible for complete new universes to be formed by 'branching off' from specific points in another universe's history. The difficulty with this though is that it cuts the lifespan of the original universe in half. (NA: Blood Heat)

A healthier way for a universe to reproduce is for it to develop within it a species capable of 'engineering' a new universe from scratch. (FP: The Cosmology of the Spiral Politic) Although the Time Lords apparently never attained this level of accomplishment, an unpopular fringe theory on Gallifrey held that their own entire reality had been engineered in this way by the 21st century Humanity of some other universe. (FP: The Book of the War)

History

"Before"

The so-called 'Pre-Universe' which existed prior to the Doctor's had a green void, stars shaped like doughnuts and physical laws closer to what might be understood as magic. (MA: Millennial Rites)

Knowledge of this universe was a closely guarded secret, and was only in the Doctor's possession as a result of his connection to the Matrix during his time as Lord President. (MA: Millennial Rites, DW: The Invasion of Time) Even then, the knowledge would ultimately prove temporary; In his sixth and seventh lives the Doctor was fully conversant with the details and specifics of this universe (NA: All-Consuming Fire, PDA: Synthespians™), but by his tenth life it was almost an article of religious faith to him that such a universe could not have existed. (DW: The Impossible Planet)

This universe's equivalent to the Time Lords were the Old Ones, who found a means by which to survive into the next. (NA: All-Consuming Fire, MA: Millennial Rites) The Beast claimed to have existed before the universe. (DW: The Impossible Planet) It was also speculated that the Ancient Lights came from the previous universe. (SJA: Secrets of the Stars)

Life of the Universe

The universe of the Doctor and of the Time Lords, the current existing Universe, is known as N-Space. It is constantly expanding (DW: Genesis of the Daleks) and was created out of a continually existing black void roughly fourteen billion years ago in what is known as Event One. (DW: Castrovalva)

For more information on Event One, see corresponding article.

The universe passed the point where it should have succumbed to heat death, but vented most of its entropy into E-Space. (DW: Logopolis)

The universe was replete with pocket universes and other realms or domains discrete from the wider continuum. Some of these existed in exotic special dimensions such as Calabi-Yau Space (PDA: The Quantum Archangel), some folded into quirks of perceptual history such as the Eleven-Day Empire (EDA: Interference - Book One) and others, such as Mictlan, had no measurable existence beyond the purely conceptual. (EDA: Alien Bodies)

The Time Lords of Gallifrey, as the first sentient culture to develop within their universe (NA: Lucifer Rising), were responsible for setting the parameters within which the universe operates. (NA: Sky Pirates!) They expunged magic in favour of science as the basic governing principle. (NA: Cat's Cradle: Time's Crucible, Christmas on a Rational Planet) They established the morphic field that would seem to favour the development of humanoid life. They established the Web of Time which guaranteed the universe a stable, linear, history. (BFA: Neverland, FP: The Book of the War)

With the Time Lords now lost to the Last Great Time War, the universe has become a more uncertain and dangerous place. The ability to travel to other universe has stopped (DW: Rise of the Cybermen) and the creation of time paradoxes has a much more dangerous effect. (DW: Father's Day)

"After"

The end of the Universe, also known as Event Two (PDA: The Infinity Doctors), has been variously projected to occur in 60 billion AD (BFA: Zagreus), 100 trillion AD (DW: Utopia) or 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 AD. (PDA: The Infinity Doctors)

Though the Doctor denied the existence of a universe before his own, he remained aware that the death of his universe would be followed by the birth of another. (DW: Army of Ghosts) The Time Lords at the end of the universe killed themselves at a Time Institute ceremony. (ST: The End)

The City of the Saved existed 'in between' the end of the Doctor's universe and the start of the next one. The inhabitants of the City once believed they had penetrated into that universe and established a colony there, but in fact they were deceived and had only reached a simulated environment inside the hostile TARDIS known as Antipathy. (FP: Of the City of the Saved...)

The After-Universe is a pink void interspersed with green mists of orbiting plankton and Saraquazel, who became its equivalent of a Time Lord. (MA: Millennial Rites) The Zytragupten also inhabit this universe. (DWM: The Stockbridge Child)

From Final Fantasy Wiki

"It is all an endless dream. Yet still... the fantasy must come to an end..."
—Cosmos

Cosmos is the goddess of harmony that opposes Chaos in Dissidia Final Fantasy. She is the only completely original character to appear in the game, and is voiced by Sumi Shimamoto and Veronica Taylor (credited as Kathleen McInerney) in Japanese and English, respectively.

Story

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)


In the Cosmos and Chaos Reports, it is hinted that Cosmos is a being created by the Lufenians in the form of Cid's unnamed wife as an alternative means to soothe Garland. This is present as Chaos had a dream where he knew true happiness.

Prologue

Cosmos as she appears in an in-game cutscene.

After the initial confrontation between Cosmos' warriors and Chaos', Cosmos is severely weakened. Worse still, the warriors have all been split up and are now stranded. She tells them that they must seek out the Crystals if they are to stand a chance against Chaos. But unknown to the warriors, whom she appeared to each save Squall in order to set them on the right track, Cosmos created the crystals to hold power within them each. As a result, she deliberately weakened herself to set up her plan which she springs once all are gathered.

Destiny Odyssey I

While the Warriors of Cosmos were seeking the Crystals, Golbez approaches Cosmos. They began to talk about the endless cycle of war. If one god is slain, the divine dragon, Shinryu, will resurrect the fallen god, and the war will continue. Golbez then states that if the light was to lose the fight, the heroes would face their true demise. Concerned, Cosmos appears before the Warrior of Light, and begs him to stop his search for the Crystals. He assures her that even if it is hopeless, a path will open.

He then promises her that he will find the Crystals and save the world. Surprised by the Warrior's bravery, Cosmos makes a promise as well, to believe in her friends until the end.

Destiny Odyssey II

Cosmos appears before Firion, telling him that Cloud, Tidus, and Cecil have all found their Crystals. Firion was happy, but at the same time, conflicted by what the Emperor called him, a tool of Cosmos. Hearing Firion's dream and how the Emperor mocked it, Cosmos responded that is a beautiful vision that she would want to see someday. Her words gave Firion new hope, as he promises to show Cosmos that world someday.

Destiny Odyssey III

Cosmos talks to the Onion Knight.

As the young Onion Knight grieves over his cowardice, Cosmos arrives to tell him of Terra's situation, she is being used by the Cloud of Darkness, and in the meantime, is suffering because of it. Onion Knight asks if there was a way to save Terra, Cosmos responded with one option, to defeat the Cloud of Darkness herself. Wishing to avoid the fight, Onion Knight asks if giving the Crystals to the Cloud of Darkness would persuade her into releasing Terra, Cosmos then asks if his heart desires this choice. Confused, Onion Knight couldn't answer, so before she left, Cosmos told him to follow his heart, that way, he can truly find the power he needs. Afterwards, Golbez arrived to back-up Cosmos's words by giving Onion Knight the same choice, to look inside his heart.

Destiny Odyssey IV

Cosmos talks to Cecil Harvey.

Cosmos appears before Cecil Harvey after he is attacked by Golbez. Cosmos listens to Cecil's concerns about his decision to rely on the power of others, then consoles him and assures him he has the power to find the Crystal as well as that helping his friends and being with his friends are two different things.

Destiny Odyssey VIII

At first, Cosmos seems to be appearing to Squall, although it is actually Ultimecia. She tricks Squall by saying that he made the correct decision by not going with the others.

Destiny Odyssey IX

Cosmos pays a visit to Zidane in the Crystal World before his battle against Kuja. She encourages him to believe in his friends and assures him that they believe in him, spurring Zidane to find and confront Kuja again.

Shade Impulse

Chaos incinerates Cosmos.

After the ten warriors retrieve their crystals, they return to Cosmos with the intent to restore her. However, Cosmos tells them that the war has been decided and they will know true darkness. Cosmos teleports the warriors to the Edge of Madness, Chaos' realm. Chaos incinerates the goddess, and the heroes begin to fade. However, the power of the Crystals bring them back, allowing the heroes a chance to strike back at Chaos.

During the encounters with the villains in Shade Impulse, it revealed that the Crystals contain Cosmos' power, and making them shine weakened her so she could be destroyed. Cosmos, and the villains who guided the heroes to the Crystals, knew this. Cosmos allowed herself to be destroyed due to her faith in the heroes, and her belief that, with the cycle of war broken, they can defeat Chaos at last.

In the secret ending, after unlocking all the Cosmos and Chaos reports, Cosmos is revealed to be alive and now the world's sole ruler. Talking to Cid of the Lufaine about how it would seem the war between good and evil was to continue, Cosmos is confident to set her hopes in both her champions and the future with intent to see it through.

Music

Cosmos has her own theme, with vocals, included in the game, titled Cosmos. The band "Your Favorite Enemies" performs this song for the game.

Gallery

Etymology

Cosmos' name comes from the Greek word for "order," furthering both her role as the goddess of harmony and her contrast with Chaos.

Trivia

  • Although Cosmos' official artwork depicts her facing to the left, as the artwork of the other heroes do, her in-game character icon faces to the right, as the artwork of the villains do.
  • Cosmos and Cid of the Lufaine are the only characters who appear in the game who are neither playable nor fought at any point.
  • Cosmos can be seen at the very end of the opening FMV, if only at a glance.
  • Cosmos is the only original character in Dissidia, though this it debatable since the Warrior of Light wasn't an official character, but rather the title of the hero of his respective game. The same could be said for Onion Knight.

(Redirected to Cosmos (G1) article)

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

This article is about the flying saucer from Generation One. For the space ship character from the movie, see Cosmos (Movie).
They're actually both looking for characterization.
Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Specifics: Toys and more fictional appearances for GI Joe, Dreamwave, IDW
Cosmos is an Autobot in the Generation One continuity family.
He can trounce any Sharkticon in a pie-eating contest but not Devastator.

Fast and intelligent, bored and lonely, Cosmos has reason to regret his abilities, which often separate him from his Autobot friends. Alas, his skills are far too extraordinary to ignore.

Few of his faction can achieve escape velocity and enter planetary orbit unaided, as he can, from planets as big as Earth or slightly larger. He carries fuel reserves sufficient for short orbital journeys; he is quite able to land on Earth's Moon, then take off and return to Earth. Cosmos enjoys such diversions immensely. Generally, however, he remains in orbit, relaying messages, observing enemy installations, and watching for Decepticon activity in nearby space. His optical sensors are able to observe a human radio host standing outside in the high desert from 600 miles up.

As a living Transformer, his advantage over a simple satellite is great, but it is a boring life for Cosmos. Every so often he breaks the monotony by hovering eerily above the backyards of Earth citizens, drifting silently behind the cars of lone drivers with his running lights on, or briefly jamming TV transmissions with reruns of The Outer Limits. He has also been known to zigzag through meteor showers on a clear night, showing off his space piloting skills. Naturally, this causes some consternation to the poor humans he is supposed to defend, but it's all in good fun. Primus save us from bored techies.

This is terrible!
Cosmos has been in worse predicaments...

Fiction

The Transformers cartoon

Voice Actor: Mike McConnohie (English), Osamu Saka(Japanese)
Good evening, citizens of Earth.

Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cosmos, Autobot deep-space reconnaissance officer. His continuing mission -- to observe Decepticon activities. To provide intelligence to the Autobots in their never ending war. To boldly crash where no other Autobot has crashed before.

Our hero began his adventures with a bang, appearing out of nowhere to blindly lead the Autobot spacecraft straight into the sun. If not for the impetuous Cliffjumper trying to change their course and realizing the controls were locked, Cosmos would have had the greatest crash of all. Still, he did his best to save his fellow Autobots in the end, as his deep space armor allowed Cosmos to come inside the ship and continue poking vainly at the control panel long after the others collapsed from their circuits overheating. Trailbreaker's force field eventually saved the Autobots, and they managed to vacate the crumbling ship inside a massive force sphere, tethered to Cosmos to bring them back to Earth. Cosmos' knack for crashing almost did them in anyhow, though -- the same reprogrammed guidance directives that were controlling their ship were now being beamed by Teletraan I to Cosmos himself, forcing him to lead the force sphere back on a course into the sun. Only the freak chance of the Decepticon Thrust visiting the Ark and blowing up Teletraan on a whim saved the Autobots, and allowed Cosmos to begin towing them back to Earth. Even though time was of the essence, we can only assume Cosmos didn't crash-land upon re-entry. Megatron's Master Plan, Part 2

When next seen, Cosmos was patrolling the spaceways for Decepticon activity with Blaster (probably as a punishment for actually liking Blaster's taste in music) when they came across a lunar base being run by Megatron and Astrotrain. Against logic and precedent, Cosmos actually managed to make a perfect two point landing on a hillside near the base to eavesdrop. Enraged at Cosmos for defying all expectations and NOT crashing (not to mention the, uh...spying he was doing), Megatron ordered Astrotrain to bring him in as a prisoner. Prisoners of war, Cosmos and Blaster were then welded to the wall and used as a power booster and tuning mechanism for Megatron's trans-scrambler, wiping out all radio contact on Earth. Luckily, Blaster managed to send his own signal along Megatron's scrambling beam, alerting the Autobots to their location. Omega Supreme arrived and drew the Decepticons' attention away from their base. Left alone, Cosmos had to do little more than raise his arm to fire off a particle beam that totally destroyed Megatron's antenna array and saved the day, teaching tyrants everywhere once and for all not to underestimate an Autobot just because he's short, fat, ugly, lonely, nerdy and more than a little (Dare we say it?) spacey... Blaster Blues

Bob's All-You-Can-Eat Bar and Grill went out of business shortly afterwards.

Possibly Cosmos' shining moment was one for most of which he wasn't even conscious. Cosmos crash-landed rather dramatically on Titan after being shot down by the pursuing Astrotrain, who was after the energy data the Autobot carried. Cosmos' body was discovered by the moon's natives, but Astrotrain quickly followed up, having overheard their superstitious discussion and set himself up as one of their Sky Gods. The cowed, religious people quickly obeyed him, and Astrotrain put Cosmos' body in the main temple for use as an idol. The rebel Talaria overheard Astrotrain musing to himself about Cosmos' short-circuit and managed to use Cosmos' systems to get an SOS to the Autobots on Earth. With barely enough power flowing through his systems to stay active, Cosmos found a better use for it: shooting Starscream. With the Decepticon occupied for the moment, Talaria was able to escape unmolested. Jazz and Perceptor were dispatched to Titan via Omega Supreme, and Cosmos was recovered, the Decepticons sent packing, and the Titans (Titanians? Titanoids? Whatever.) were freed from religious dogma. The God Gambit

Somehow, Cosmos managed to talk Prime into letting him serve on Earth for a while as part of the Autobots' joint Crimebuster program with the NYPD. He observed a traffic jam while hovering over Times Square, and later tried to chase down Starscream on foot with Powerglide, only to end up causing massive structural damage to a human mall. Incidentally, Cosmos was back in space very shortly. Make Tracks

After Shrapnel and Bombshell pumped out hundreds of Insecticlones to swarm over the countryside and gather power, Prime sent Cosmos into space to retrieve a giant can of robotic insecticide. (Really -- we can't make this stuff up.) On his way back with Spike and Bumblebee, though, Cosmos was attacked by Morphobots on Floron III. Although he managed to break loose of their grip, the techno-organic plants left behind spores on his hull which quickly developed into fully functioning vines that entangled Cosmos as he tried to re-enter Earth's atmosphere. Spike and Bumblebee escaped in an ejector chamber, but Cosmos did his crash-landing bit and was covered in Morphobots by the time he came to a stop, with the robotic insecticide can still inside him. Bumblebee summoned the other Autobots to try and help, and it was Blaster's obnoxious music that ultimately cleared the way and allowed them to free Cosmos. Hoist promised to give Cosmos "the best overhaul he'd ever had" when they got back to the Ark. Uh-huh...niiiiiice... Quest for Survival

When he uncovered a Decepticon operation to mine ore from an asteroid they'd pulled into orbit, Cosmos rushed back to warn Prime and gather a strike force. Optimus stressed caution instead and ordered Cosmos back up into space to acquire some hard evidence on the Decepticon activity. Cosmos did as he was asked and actually managed to grab a sample of ore right out of Astrotrain while the Constructicons were loading him up. He brought this "hard evidence" back to Earth to show Prime. The Autobot leader commended Cosmos on his work, but he wasn't quite done and sent Cosmos back out into orbit yet again, this time to track Astrotrain to the refinery the Decepticons must have been using to process the ore. Prime loves him his outer space yo-yo. The Secret of Omega Supreme

When Seaspray intercepted a distress signal, Cosmos carried him, Bumblebee and Perceptor to the planet of the Tlalakans, a humanoid race held captive by the Decepticons. Too late, they realized that it was a Decepticon distress call. Droids blasted Cosmos, who (surprise, surprise) crashed on the planet. He remained damaged for a time, too much so to participate in many of the Autobots' adventures on the planet. Sea Change

Cosmos, once again teamed with Blaster, scoured the universe for more Ingredient X so that Perceptor could concoct more corrostop. One can only imagine how many moons and planet he bravely crash-landed on in his fruitless search. Cosmic Rust

In the year 2006, Cosmos was late flying in to Cybertron with Sky Lynx to see the activation of the new power platform. On his entry vector, Cosmos was blasted with anti-electrons, a dangerous substance designed to disrupt his normal operating functions. However, the anti-electrons seemed to have no effect on Cosmos at all, as moments later he crashlanded on Cybertron's surface. Perfectly normal. Grimlock's New Brain

No, really. HE WANTS TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE TRANSFORMERS.
I want to tell you about the Transformers!

This character article is a stub and is missing information on their fictional appearances. You can help Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki by expanding it.

Marvel Comics continuity

Apparently Cosmos never bothered to get an Earth mode.
Cosmos kills and kills and kills.

Cosmos was a member of Perceptor's resistance cell on Cybertron. Like most of the cell, he had a stronger respect for their top fighter Blaster than Perceptor, and along with the other Autobots overruled Perceptor's order not to search for Blaster's missing friend Scrounge. In the Dead End, Cosmos provided some life-giving fuel to ol' Wheezel for information, only to find that Scrounge had been taken away to Darkmount by the Decepticon Shrapnel. Realizing Scrounge was probably dead already in the smelting pool, Blaster went after his buddy anyway, and Cosmos and the others had to come after him and save his hide (video evidence of Cosmos' rampage through Darkmount is still used to scare Decepticon recruits). Though Scrounge died, the Autobots managed to retrieve the last data from his infobanks, and learned that Optimus Prime and the crew of the Ark were alive and well on the planet Earth! The Smelting Pool!

Galvanized by this knowledge, the Autobots planned a daring assault on Lord Straxus, planning to destroy both his seat of power at Darkmount and the new Space Bridge allowing transit to Earth. Darkmount was destroyed, but the Decepticons interrupted Blaster before he could finish setting the charges on the bridge. Instead, Cosmos, Blaster, and the rest of their unit were chased over the other side, and found themselves stuck on planet Earth. The Bridge to Nowhere! Over time, Cosmos and the others were captured by the human agency known as RAAT, but later released after striking a deal with their captors to defeat the Decepticon Battlechargers who were rampaging through America. Decepticon Graffiti! After that, Cosmos and his friends joined up with the Autobots at the Ark.

Marvel UK future timelines

Cosmos was part of a team brought to Earth by Rodimus Prime to investigate why Autobot City was taken off-line, only to run into heavy Quintesson opposition. Luckily, no matter the continuity, Metroplex is their kinda town! Space Pirates!

Find Your Fate Junior

Desert Flight Cosmos was sent to investigate signs of Dirge's presence and discovered a Decepticon Base. He was captured, and Hook built a perfect replica of Cosmos with a bomb inside, using information from Cosmos' own memories to send him to Optimus Prime.

Cosmos escaped with a surprising lack of difficulty and hurried to intercept his replica, arriving almost simultaneously. In the end, Cosmos was able to convince Optimus Prime he was the real deal, and the replica was destroyed.

The Autobots stormed the base, and Cosmos acquitted himself bravely against Dirge in battle, despite being badly outclassed. What a hero!

Dreamwave comics continuity

Cosmos was one of many Autobots who rose up and took arms against Shockwave after Optimus Prime and the Ark's crew returned to Cybertron to lead the population in revolt against the Decepticon's corrupt rule. He joined up with a resistance cell under Tracks and Broadside, and fought alongside his comrades in the insurrection. Countdown to Extinction Afterward, Cosmos was placed under Bumblebee's command during a supply run to Earth aboard the starship Orion. Night of the Combaticons Their mission led them into an uncomfortable alliance with Starscream against an even greater evil -- the super-powered clone known as Sunstorm. Starscream turned on them first chance he got, of course, and Cosmos was one of the Autobots he knocked off-line while making his escape. The Omega Effect Doc Ratchet had Cosmos fixed up in a few days, though, and he was last seen helping with the construction of Autobot City on Earth. The Route of All Evil

G.I. Joe Vs. Transformers

Cosmos was stationed on Earth, part of a small detachment under Prowl's command. In cooperation with Hawk and Firewall, the team worked to round up stray Cybertronian technology on Earth. When an emergency came up, he arrived over Hawk's back yard to beam him aboard and carried him to the Arc II. Cosmos then joined Prowl's team on a mission to capture Destro and some of his arms-purchasing clients; Cosmos himself lassoed the buyer, then evacuated the squad before the G.I. Joe team could arrive.

Later, when the submerged Arc II was attacked by the Pretender Monsters, Cosmos dodged the giant organic craft that had flown the Decepticons there. Eject brought Firewall to the water's surface, where Cosmos picked her up. The two headed for Tibet to help out the team under Optimus Prime's command. Black Horizon issue 1

On arrival, though, all they found was snow-blown mountain wastes, until something grabbed Firewall and pulled her below ground. Shortly afterward, an avalanche swept Cosmos away.

Recovering, Cosmos searched near and far for Firewall, but finally came upon Flint and Joe Colton, holding off a band of Yeti; his firepower quickly turned the tide of the fight.

Then, Cosmos and his best mate Flint flew into space, flew down Unicron's throat, and totally killed him with fungus.

Cosmos is more badass than every single Prime ever. Black Horizon issue 2

After Blaster was found alive and well, Cosmos was one of many Autobots who traveled to the Hub to see "The Voice" again with his own optics. His appearance alongside Bluestreak suggests Cosmos is part of that Autobot's counter-insurgency unit.

Toys

Generation One

  • Cosmos (Mini Vehicle, 1985/1986)
Japanese ID number: 86
Cosmos transforms into a "flying saucer." His underside has little wheels for when you just gotta roll a saucer around.
In 1986, he was made available as a mail-away item (as he was no longer shipping to retail shelves) in the Digital Doom on the Highway to Destruction flier packed with most boxed Transformers toys. He cost $4 and one robot point.
In Japan, he was released only as a mail-away item. He cost 500 yen and 2 robot points.
  • Minibots Team (Multi-pack, 2005)
Japanese ID number: TFC-12
Cosmos was reissued in the Transformers Collection series in a multi-pack with Bumblebee, Gears, Huffer, Powerglide and Warpath. This release has a modified chest sticker that contains an Autobot sigil.
This version, with the altered sticker, was used to make Path Finder.

Universe (2008)

  • Autobot Cosmos (Legends, 2009)
25 years and 9, 125 protein shakes later.
Time to start singing Tom Smith's "When I Grow Up, I Want To Be Peter Lorre." Yes, they actually made a new Cosmos; Hasbro seems bent on going back and recreating the G1 Mini-Car characters for their Legends-Class products. This new update takes away his little wheels, but features improved articulation over the original toy, plus ... a startling new design feature. Well, fair's fair, after all. Seaspray bagged a mermaid, Powerglide hooked up with an heiress, and now it's only fitting that Cosmos should get a little tail.
Bill Rawley claims responsibility for the markings on Cosmos, which allegedly spell out his name ("Cosmos") in "Cybertronian" lettering.[1]


Trivia

What could have been...
  • Mike McConnohie's voice for Cosmos is a heavily processed impression of film star Peter Lorre. More precisely, McConnohie has stated in his BotCon appearances that he was doing an intentionally bad impression of Peter Lorre, which he sheepishly admitted came off sounding like a Spanish accent at times. (Until the source of Cosmos's voice was confirmed, fans would sometimes speculate that Cosmos sounded Spanish.)
  • It is presumed that Cosmos' Japanese name, Adams, is derived from that of George Adamski, who provided the famous flying saucer design after which Cosmos was modeled.
  • Early Japanese promotional material shows Cosmos with a blue body rather than his final green. The toy would see release in this coloration much, much, much later as Path Finder.
What could have been if he'd only found the salad bar...
  • Concept art of a Classics version of Cosmos was shown at BotCon 2006, but the design was rejected because higher-ups felt the vehicle mode was too "boring". Many fans were pleasantly shocked they even considered making a new Cosmos. The art was later printed as part of the supplementary material in the Stormbringer trade paperback. Despite the rejection, it remained on the development team's "look into this" file should they revisit the Classics line in the future. True to their word, the design was moved to the Titanium Cybertron Heroes line of die-cast metal transforming toys, but with the cancellation of the Transformers portion of this franchise, the Cosmos design exists only as a resin prototype that was on display during the Hasbro tour portion of BotCon 2007.
  • Cosmos' G1 concept art isn't terribly out of the ordinary, but it's also pretty badass.
  • Where did he scan his alt mode again?
