The Starscream Clone was created by Megatron and Starscream in order to convince the Autobots that Megatron's Optimus Prime clone was the real Optimus Prime. Megatron and Starscream had concluded that the only way to do this was if the Prime Clone killed one of the Decepticon high ranking officers so Megatron cloned Starscream so that the Prime clone could kill the Starscream clone. The plan went off without a hitch until Windcharger and Spike overheard Megatron and Starscream talking about the Prime Clone. Starscream Clone was a remot controled drone and had no sentience and was under the complete control of whoever wore the control helmet which for his short existence was the real Starscream.
