and it would make her 1/4 zentran (but the age doesnt add up, she should be 18 not 15)
Maybe space folding is like faster-than-light travel in that time gets warped?

Ranka was all of five years old when the 117th Exploration Fleet was attacked; I doubt that getting her old memories back would change her character all that much.

With Zentradi fold technology, time is dilated so that a single day that passes in foldspace will mean that ten days have passed in real space. I don't know if human fold technology is the same, but I would presume so.

In shows, there's always something important hidden inside those locked-away menories.

Well, fold operations apparently don't normally spend significant periods of time in foldspace.

The accidental fold from Earth to Pluto in SDF Macross was near instantaneous.

Isamu's fold from Eden to Earth arrived the same day for the final battle in Macross Plus, and if the map of the colonization routes in Frontier is to scale, Eden is relatively far from earth.

Likewise, the NUNS recon squadron in Episode 06 executed a ''short-range" 12 lightyear fold and arrived at most hours later in real time.

The reason for the 10 days from the long range fold was that the Bodolle Zer fleet was stationed in a far remote sector of the galaxy.

While that's certainly a possibility, I don't think that it'll make much difference to Ranka's personality. Given the way she's been characterized, there's tons of better devices for accomplishing that. On a personal note, I'd prefer it if her past doesn't have much impact at all to her character. She's too interesting for such ham-fisted storytelling to work very well.

Before the introduction to episode 6, I would have thought that the time spent in foldspace was determined entirely by the distance travelled. This is a little less certain now, but I think that it's still the most important factor. We haven't seen all that many long-distance folds, so it's a bit speculative for now.

Where does Ranka go to school? I heard it was private school, but she was there at Alto's when the military was taking blood samples.

Ranka probably still goes to an exclusive all-girls school (if they don't kick her out for her side job). Alto was kidnapped by Cathy to some military facility to take the blood test, so it stands to reason that Ranka was there for the same reason.

Oh uh, this may be a bit belated, but Ranka's official romanized spelling is well, Lanca.

You are right. Then we got this

Welp, its actually not that big of a deal. After all, the name Maxmillian Jenius have been spelled in numerous ways, such as Janus, Janis, or even Genius.
