Not all fleets are like this; notice that Sheryl says that the Galaxy fleet's ships are much more... industrial in nature, while Frontier's (launched from Eden, one of Earth's more successful colonies) is more aesthetically pleasing, as befits a fleet launched from what was more a paradise world than Earth was and is now.

Macross (Frontier) 025 was launched from Earth (EP06 0:00:24).
Macross (Galaxy) 021 was launched from Eden (EP01 0:00:29).

The city blocks looks fine to me (Macross/RoboTech Season 1, EP01 00:13:15).

Island's inhabitants have been evacuated, cite reference (Macross/RoboTech Season 1) EP02 00:13:55 and 00:15:59 "yeh, looks like the civilains got out just in time".

Triple post!

Look at the bottom right of your post there is an edit button.

Treat it as a friend.

But as said before too the Macross City civvies didn't get slaughtered.

Good procedures saved a lot of lives.

The only real tragedy of folding are the crews and pilots of Promrtheus and Daedalus.

Lol.

When Zentradi and Meltrandi are constantly bitching each other it means they are on a rut.

Spoiler for Hot Action:


Spoiler for Smoking is bad:


The Surgeon General says Zentradi second hand smoke is bad for the health of those humans around you.

Zent/Melt relationship = SlapSlapKiss. Or rather MissileMissileKiss.

As for Daedalus, I'm doubtful they could have rigged for quiet in time... and Prometheus was a gone case, because her captain is an aircraft carrier captain, and he's going to leave his carrier up where he can launch fighters because thats what a carrier is for. He did the right thing... which unexpectedly backfired on him.

Rewatching SDF Macross. The animation gaffs are astounding [disappearing bullet holes, incomplete cells] though the charm is still there.

One thing I just realised about Capt. Global: though he isn't as tactically sophisticated as the UN Government and the Zentradi, this guy is the master of PR manipulation

Spoiler:


Basically, the captian has got his own country to rule in space with 50k civilians, a private army, media station and complete autonomy to do as he sees fit. At least he has the Hat, the Iron balls and Cheeky charisma to attempt to culture a militant alien race

Not to mention the Colonization Plan.

Hey a 1200 m ship would make a good town ship.

So I finally found the time to watch SDFM, and I just finished watching episode 25 last Saturday. (hehehehehe) I hope to finish 26 to 36 by the end of this week just in time for the subs of MF Episode 25 to come out.

BTW....My Jumbled Thoughts on the 25 episodes of SDFM I've watched so far:

* Kaifun is GHEY!!!! That punk really needs to die, IMHO. He really earned by ire when he talked trash to my childhood hero, Roy Fokker, the most GAR character of SDFM. To add insult to injury Kaifun made those remarks to Roy on Episode 18, teh Pineapple Salad episode. Peacenik PUNK!!!!

* FAST Pack makes its debut!!! Quite a short debut though.

* Laplamiz is as HOT as Millia, IMHO. So does that mean I was a Kamjin clone in another life? LOL!!!

* Vrlitwhai Kridanik is DA MAN!!!! IMHO, second most GAR character in SDFM.

* Mecha to Mecha Combat, VF Video Game & finally Knife Fight as Mating Rituals is so AWESOME!!!!

* VF-1 Honor Guard FTW!!!!

* Misa Hayase!!!! Nuff said.

Advisor Exsedol the Man of the Hour, The guy just knows what to say in a desperate situation
Quote:





Watching again episode 26 of Macross and Macross 7 Encore :The Fleet of Strongest Women makes me realize Exsedol is bloody brilliant.

When Global and company were feeling this is the end with Bodolzaa's fleet coming Exsedol suddenly tells them this is not their last.

He reminds them that the Macross alone stood up to the Zentradi fleet.

A five million to a thousand odds of survival but they shouldn't lose hope.


In The Fleet of Strongest Women Exsedol seeming took orders from UN Spacy HQ to blow up Chlore's fleet with the Macross cannon. When the Macross cannon fire it hit nothing. Giving Basara the chance to culture shock the Meltrans.

He gave Miho the coordinates.

Excusedly saying to the Earth UN Spacy big shot he made a mistake and he is not fit for fleet command duty.

Makes me think Exsedol would have made an excellent statesman if he weren't the type to support his commander.

Question Launch Day

Not to completely geek out , but when exactly is launch day (Space Fold)? I've tried google searching but all I keep puling up is Robotech dates, which I'm not sure if I can go with or not.

I'll bet when they animated this they figured 2009 was way far enough in the future. It's as humorous as when watching U.F.O. and space 1999 -- I don't remember seeing any Eagles flying about, and I certainly haven't seen any valks. :}
