Nome family name

No comments on the family name "Nome", yet? That's the name shared by Mao and Sara in Macross Zero! The galaxy is a big place, so the chances of this singer being related to those two on that remote island are next to none. Of course, since this is fiction, the a coincidence like this pretty much guarantees that they are distant grand-kin.

And if she is...
Spoiler for Macross Zero ending and conjecture based off of previous point:

Wonder how it'll turn out.

If she is a relative, her blood would be too diluted to make much of a difference. Besides, her skin type (fair complexion) and blue eyes does not point to it. Lanca's got more alien blood than her.

Then, there's the Macross: Do you remember love? events to take into consideration.

I think that the name is a reference to Macross Zero only and that she is not related.

With advances in technology would that even be a factor in things? Right now you can whiten your skin and wear blue eye contact lenses and this is set 50 years later and is an anime as well. Anyway I doubt at this stage they are related but lets see how things play out.

I truly wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that way, though i don't want to jump to any conclusions. It's only the beginning after all.

Let's say if she's is related to either Mao and Sara what would that make Sheryl their great grandaughter or great great grandaughter? How many years has it pass since Macross Zero?

According to the FAQ here Zero took place in 2008 and Frontier is 2059, so granddaughter is more likely if they are related.

And if a Nome relative from the Macross Zero timeline survived.

Doubt that Sheryl is genetically manipulated, cosmetically manipulated skin tone or wearing contact lenses because that would decrease her appeal. She would be seen as a fake.

Aren't most Idols considered to be fake? Like putting on a fake lovable personality on stage/TV but back stage have a bitchy personality plus Idols usually change their style including their hair color/style to make themselves more appealing.

Heh. As Sharon Apple demonstrated, the people of the Macross universe don't even need their stars to be alive or real. I'm pretty sure that Sheryl is all hologram .

More seriously, there are a number of celebrities who are very different privately than they are in the public. This is a matter of professionalism, so it's not altogether a bad thing, and it's quite possible that certain of them who are nicer or more intelligent than they may appear. On the other side of the equation, there are also celebrities whose public persona is very similar to how they behave in private.

I find it strange how they seem to separate the Minmay character, the singing aspect in Sheryl and the unique girl-next-door type in Lanca.

personally, i'm pinning my hopes on sheryl but the Military female assistant is also someone i hope to see as well.

She's my "Misa" hope.

Sheryl might be a interesting if they have the time to develop her character. plus i like her songs, i wonder how they rate on the Galaxy Network against the Rockstar Hero Basara from Fire Bombers?

his music can defeat inter-dimensional-Universe-consuming-bioweapons and make frigging plants GROW.

dammn hard to beat you know.

The Galaxy Network is the data-sharing network which distributes information in audio, text and video throughout the human-known-galaxy between colonised planets and the numerous colony fleets in transit.

Hence the name "GALAXY NETWORK".

It evolved amongst the first wave of colony ships and has become the equivalents of the internet.

It is mentioned also in Macross Plus, but it was only in Macross 7 where it was mentioned and used throughout the series.

The Galaxy Network is a way to spread the latest news, music, films and technology to everyone.

Thus Culture.

Such is the impact of the Galaxy Network that I took it on as the name of the folder on my computer where I store all my media and Fire Bomber the name of the folder where I store all of my music inside the Galaxy Network Folder (In the core folder of Side 7 based off of Gundam.....that's right I have a creative name for everything including naming my computer Zeta). If Sheryl has upstaged Basara and Fire Bomber I'm still not changing any of that.

Currently Galaxy Network is running about 30 GB since I cleared some stuff off it. Unlike the actual Galaxy Network though it is a private folder, not a shared one.

I wonder....Basara had to work to climb the charts and people initially said his music sucks. Does that mean we might see a reversal here where Sheryl starts to fall of the charts and lose her edge at some point? Macross has loved to depict the rise of stars, but not so much the fall (even Minmay's fall was kind of glossed over a bit) so it might be an interesting focus.

I'm seeing Sheryl more as Jamis? The Idol Minmei defeated in the Miss Macross contest.

Spoiler for Future Episode titles:

I loved hearing Sheryl and Ranka sing unplugged in the second episode.

They're got beautiful voices.

I don't think Sheryl will be participating in Miss Macross, more chance of her judging.

Spoiler for Ep titles 5-6:
