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?

They're looking pretty good in their 60-odd year old bodies in 7, so they shouldn't be looking too bad. Remember, growning old is a state of mind, and geniuses like Max and Millia Jenius don't grow old. Seeing them go apeshit on the Vajra in their VF-22S Sturmvogels powered by the Power of Love would definately be awesome. But it's better if it doesn't happen.

Also, Tak, I'd suggest refraining from constantly making references to 9/11 as a verb. It's bad taste. If you're going to persist anyway, at least make sure you get the term right. Nine slash eleven.

... you know since the ship is designated VF-27 that means it has to be registered to NUNS as a fleet ship. The VF tag is only used with allied valks...

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.

Seeing how "Bobotech" got me into Anime in the first place, I donīt much care about the stupid yelling.

That being said, good to know that Gloval and the bridge bunnies survived in the original Macross.

EGADS! 50+ years old, my dear Goose! 50+! Yes, I know they are a few years off, but hitting that magical SIX matters a crapload! Still, seeing them fight eventually in the final segment of 7 was heart-warming, that is, despite the silliness of the entire show.

The powers of rounding up to the nearest ten. That said, they should have gotten into the Sturmvogels and patched up earlier and kicked more ass sooner.

Then again the problem with the VF-19 and VF-22 is that those things are so powerful if you give them to grunts you'll just turn them into elite mooks or the good guys will curbstomp everyone, which makes for a boring story.

For me, acts of terrorism are serious business. I'd suggest you refrain from making more references to Max and Millia or anyone else in Macross committing terrorism, for the sake of plain, simple decency.

6000 people were killed that day. That's not something to laugh about. Unless you're a Romeo November Charlie, but meh.

This wouldn't stop any faction from carrying on with the tradition. Besides, it may be that before the split/secession/rebellion, the VF-27 is indeed serving the UN Spacy, just so happened that it was deployed exclusively with the rebel faction. Besides, we are not yet definite with the VF-27 designation.

Coming from SMS captain Wilbur nobody names a ship Macross without the nescessary requirement of transforming into a humanoid configuration and having a Macross canon.

If I'm right Galaxy is the biggest Macross ever built.

Looking at it port side those look like an arm and a leg.

A Macross that does what the original did having both military and civillian wthin it.

It would be the big surprise in the future that it could be turned against them like what happened in Macross VF-X2's Macross 13.

The smallest Macross ever built against the biggest one ever built.

Quarter vs Galaxy.

Why build the biggest Macross because they can and they have the money. (Macross Galaxy was mainly a corporate venture.)

They might have a New Macross-class battlecarrier docked with Galaxy. Macross 7 was City 7 and Battle 7, afterall.

On that line of thought, what if... Macross Frontier is Macross Quarter's Superpack?

Why not? It's not unprecedented in the mecha genre.

Cheers.

It might be the biggest colony ship to be tagged with the Macross name, but the entire ship won't be transformable like the original SDFMacross, the closest thing you might get is something like Battle 7 attached to M-Galaxy. There's a difference between a Macross Colony ship and a Macross battleship.

It'd be more than irresponsible to make the entire ship transformable and run the risk of having to constantly bring the civilian population to battle if you end up on the offensive (defending is a different kettle of fish). Whereas the original Macross did it out of necessity.

I mean, the idea itself is awesome, but it'd be silly for a fleet who's main purpose is to spread humanity throughout the stars to have the ability to bring its entire population into battle when it doesn't have to.

So just how many tens of thousands died because of the Vajra attack on Galaxy? It would seem that only one ship managed to escape, and the only chance any would have had was making a break for Frontier, due to the Fold Disruption, and the probable remoteness of the region they were in.

I'm thinking the Mystery pilot shot Alto's gun cause he was accidentally firing at the Fold reactor. Brera being in the apparently super tech vf-27 probably thought Alto had no idea what he was doing and decided it was a risk he wasn't willing to take. IE the reactor blowing up because of Alto shooting at it.

You may be right. Alto is such a noob.

But this encounter would no doubt start his annoyance at that pinkish Valkyrie.

Like Gamlin's annoyance with certain custom VF-19 pilot.

I mention this cause it seems like Brera went in after Luca and the freshly shot up small Vajra in the ship had to have been his work. If Brera was part of the Vajra i don't think he'd have to shot them.

I wonder if he just got caught in the fold out by accident and immediately left for Galaxy once the battle was over. As for his connection with Ranka, he could be another survivor from the same attack and could be suffering from the same memory suppression.
