Where does VF-27 come from anyway (and what happened to the VF-26?)? I've only seen it referred to as "mysterious variable fighter" in spoilers.

The tech used in those fighters seem way above established human and zentradi tech levels. What with the EVA style cockpit, the built in ability to fold from stationary (which also looks different from the normal fold). Brera doesn't even bother wearing a helmet, and his suit is distinctly alien and glows (is he physically even in the cockpit?).

On the other hand, they use variable fighters which suggest organised human influence of some kind...

Because they all failed to beat the other competitor

For example, our F-17, F-19, F-20 (Tigershark, discontinued model, never entered production phase), F-21, and F-23 were all apparent losers

If you mean the 360-degrees view in the cockpit, then that's similar to the VF-19 in Macross Plus. The way the view was presented may be stylized though, I recall they sometimes show Isamu naked while piloting his VF-19.

EDIT: There's also another school of thought in the Mecha thread. Here's my contribution:

So it could be that the VF-27 is a combination of the VF-19 and VF-21. (Which was what I thought when watching Macross Plus: why not combine the two?)

...No, don't tell me the harmonica enables Brera to pull off a Basara-style pilot control

Just got me thinking about the Jenius daughters.

What if Ranka is Max and Millia's grandchild?

Expect the wraiths of Max and Millia. Them knowing their daughter(Ranka's mom) had been killed, we will see Vajra blood rain across the galaxy.

Max and Milia go apeshit (in their 70 year old bodies), and pull a 911 on the Vajra.

Then I will most definitely pull a 911 on Mr. Kawamori.

But why does she have to be the child of anyone famous? It doesn't have to be that way, and I really don't want to see Max or Milia anymore, especially since they are now in their what? 70s?

Sheryl might be related to the Nome sisters. What's Ranka got by comparison? The possibility of being the Vajra Brood Mother?

That was Robotech.
Global and the bridge crew (including Misa) survive Quamzin's suicide run in SDF Macross.

stop with the heresy talk!

*dribble hot holy Macross machine oil over everyone*

Getting back on topic, i wonder if we will find out what happened to the main colony ship? after all, we only saw them save a escort ship from the fleet that seemed to be running.

I wonder if the expedition force will come just in time, to save the survivors or will they come the scene of a dead fleet?

The thing is, Luca was a scout/intel unit, and it was interesting that the VAJRA picked up on him and (seemingly) capture him for "intelligence"

Speaking of Luca... did you notice that the red Vajra who took him used some kind of "trasparent arm"? What the hell was that?

Regarding Ranka... I'm sure people noticed the lights coming from her chest during Sheryl' concert. What the hell was that? (2)
I hope she isn't half insectoid or I'm going to feel sick...

BURN THE HERETIC, KILL THE MUTANT, PURGE THE UNCLEAN (TM)!!!

That was Bobotech man (thats right, BOBOTECH). Our beloved Italian Capt'n later started the colonization project along with the help of an equally beloved Zent supreme commander. That is how humanity spread across known space.

Bobotech on the other hand, was content with humans isolating themselves while royally @!$!@$!$ themselves over their collective arses.
