There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's MasterCard.
*gets up from rolling on the floor* You sir, win the internets. I need to watch Episode 25 again just for that.

I'm saying she should have done a Sharon Apple cover while in Queen mode. The heroes would have had no shot, short of Basara flying in all his sound booster glory.

...I just realised that Grace is the highest-ranking Macross charecter in a valk No other Macross pilot before her has gotten to O6 as a valk pilot (Roy and Ozma were O4s, Hikaru barely made it to O3, and Max only made O6 after his flying days were more or less over).
Good observation there. I guess her rank is really deserving of her competence level. That's how she could control Battle Galaxy and handle its Ghost escorts in a fleet-wide scale. Something Luca can only dream of.

Same here. If that would happen, we would still be experiencing the after-effects of a galactic-scale fangasm.

How dare you call yourself a Macross fan!

Seriously though Grace was an amazing evil cyborg but I just didn't fully understand why she did what she did. Was it because she hated humans or what?

More like she was overly obsessed with unlocking the secrets to the galaxy, thus explains her single-minded devotion to pacify the Vajra. After all, the Vajra possessed the key not only to the galaxy's historical past, but the key to controlling the preset and future.

Funny thing is I read the previous message, the one I quoted, wrongly. If she pulled a Sharon near the end I'd have more reasons to send a few MDE's her way

Well you can' t blame her to be the bad guy. Actually she tried to unite humanity but the problem with scientists are they don' t care about what sacrifice they need to reach that goal. well, almost every scientists.

She reminded me a bit of the borgs only with the difference that: "We are Cyborgs, resistance is futile." One theory why she wanted to united with the help of the vajra is because cyborgs - with exception of frontier - aren' t welcome in all fleets, e.g. Macross Frontier.
