The term Seeker refers to Decepticon jet troopers who share Starscream's
body-type but with different colors or minor variations in wing and head shapes. This is most clearly and commonly known from Generation 1, but any franchise with a Starscream is almost inevitably going to feature a similar "family" of redecoed jet-formers.

The word "Seeker" hovered a long time in a strange gray area between official and fan-coined terms. It seems to have originated in extremely obscure official or semi-official writing, but somehow became widely used among fans. (See below.) In 2002, the term appeared in dialog from the first issue of The War Within from Dreamwave Productions, making it truly official after years of controversy. It has subsequently appeared in many other places such as on toy packaging, books, and in other stories.

The Seekers are the leader Starscream, Bitstream, Dirge, Hotlink, Acid Storm, Ramjet, Red Wing, Sandstorm, Skywarp, Slipstream, Sunstorm, Thrust, and Thundercracker.
