And, yeah, I realize how incredibly contrived it is that both Michael and Klan cannot take the opposite form, just in reverse order.

It would be funny if Michael looked like a Zentradi sized eleven year old to Klan's full sized hotness.

I *think* it was in the "Official Fan Book," in the section where Yoshino answers questions about Frontier...

I'll check tonight and get back to you on it.

Nope, not there. Which means it was either in Macross Chronicle or 2059: Memories...both of which are packed up in my Mom's attic back home. Sorry.

np, it will come to light sooner or later. If anybody still remembers that the question even came up.

There is something in the fanbook, on page 80. Something about "Michel has Zolan blood. But just having the blood of (other races) doesn't mean that one can Zentradise. So you can assume that Michel can't Zentradise either."

But it doesn't actually credit this explanation to anyone...

Which is weird considering Max, IIRC? (I still haven't watched DYRL again - last time being about 10 years ago...)

The light novels touch on the various issues about why someone might not be able to Zentradise/micronise (e.g. after a few times going through the process, they get stuck in the Zentran size; or their blood/genetics are too 'weak' for it...or ST like that), but it's been a while, so I don't really remember...

The latter explanation is the one I was thinking of, but I can't remember where I found it.

Did they every attempt to explain which scale is considered "normal" in Macross? Human or Zentrati size? As that brings up issues with things like food supplies and other things like that. Obviously on Frontier they have both scales covered as you have produce and animals that are also Zentrati scale.

One wonders if the humans would be able to handle a concert of a Zentrati idol singer at full size?

Not very good, especially if a Meltrandi singer pulls off a Dion glass-breaker and cause some serious ear damage.

For some odd reason of not creating a uniform standard size/scale for character designs, the original SDFM Zentrans (the average grunts) were actually smaller than their Frontier equivalents, even if you put Kridanik side-by-side with Klang -- she'll be a smidgen taller than the old general (who is already a huge man for his time)!

Though I can't imagine them being idols. I can imagine them being divas in rock or heavy metal.
