Maybe somebody could clarify this for me. Every time I watch the OP and see the colonization routes I keep thinking that the 21st fleet (Galaxy) is suppose to play some kind of important role in the story. I don't think the 21st fleet has even been mentioned in the 4 episodes so far. Perhaps someone has an idea if and how the Galaxy fleet might tie in to Frontier's story.

Well, Sheryl seems to originate from Macross Galaxy, but that's as much importance that can be attributed to that aspect of the story. It's certainly possible for the Galaxy fleet to play a much bigger part, but we won't know for at least a few episodes. Besides, at this time we don't know anything about Macross Galaxy (or the Vajra, for that matter).

really?

that's strange because Macross frontier was launched around 2012, a 2nd generation ship, originally from Earth.

Basically part of the changing philosophy of colonial strategy, of providing colony fleets with more protection as oppose to the non-transforming Megaroad class.

Eden was colonies in 2013 by Megaroad 04, (one year!) from there Macross Galaxy was launched, which will make Macross Galaxy technically part of the 2nd colonial wave.

Spoiler:


edit: Unless of course, M-Galaxy has the same colonial class ships as M-Frontier, but only newer?

Maybe sister fleet is the wrong term (Galaxy is the 21st fleet though going by the first scene in episode 1 so they should be pretty similar or close) but they are traveling parallel to each other in the same direction. We should get a good look at Macross Galaxy some time this season, looking at episode titles maybe sooner than later.. Also maybe the guy voiced by Hoshi at the end of the OP is from Galaxy?

erm....

the number don't really make a difference, M-Frontier is the 25th fleet from EARTH.

M-Galaxy is the 21st fleet from EDEN.

even if they are close numerically, it's just a coincident.

I mean M-Frontier actually went wide towards the Galactic rim, before looping anti-spiralward (not quite as far as Eden) before heading towards the galactic core.

M-Galaxy on the other hand, left Eden and went straight towards the core.

It's obviously that M-Frontier was deliberately routed toward the core, probably by the direction of UN Spacy HQ. While M-Galaxy was planned from the start to go in that direction.

First of all, Macross Galaxy, according to Sheryl, is not exactly an interesting place to be at. But,

So, there you have it for MACROSS GALAXY.

sheryl caught Altro near his school, or close by.

evidence: he is wearing his uniform, obviously on the way there.

evidence 2: no prior evidence suggest she knows where he lives, hence in ep2 she went to the S.M.S building and not to his house/place.

evidence 3: she knows he is from the fleets most "prestige fleet school" so she wait for him nearby, because the information was available from the beginning provided by cathy/and or the organisers of the concert.

question: how does to tie in with the erm....raunchy preview?

theory: because sheryl is near a school, some student spot her.

evidence: her disguise pathetic and is worse then the last one.

conclusion: she will gather a lot of attention and fans.

this will lead to a cat and mouse chase, with both of them. fans want sheryl and simultaneously kill the man wearing the same uniform as them, that she seems to be holding hands "affectionately" with.



theory: Altro will try to find a place to hide, either nearby the school or in he school itself.

conclusion: Altro & Sheryl will have to hide together, in a dark place.

evidence: the preview was dark and she seems to be pushed or cramped.


maybe they hid in a store room, or a locker or something cramped, to get away from the mob of students.

theory: Ranka/Nena will see them running away together.
conclusion: misunderstanding.

evidence: my hentai intuition

*looks at episode 5 screenies*

Woohoo!

dammn i hit the mark close!


Can't wait to watch it and the preview to make another crack!

I think it's crucial to understand if Vajra reacts to songs in general or to Ranka's songs only: this may be the explanation about why Ranka survived and the other passangers did not.

Seeing the reaction of the Vajra to Ranka's song I may have to re-evaluate who is behind the Vajra.

The Vajra was in a state of near death only to be revaltilized by Ranka's song.

In Macross 7 sound energy can increase the Spiritia within lifeforms.

I think the energy we saw on the Vajra is Spiritia.

If this is so Macross Frontier isn't facing any ordinary Protoculture by-product of war, they are facing the last survivors of the Protoculture, the Anima Spiritia.

Regardless of origin:

Sheryl better win between her and Ranka for Saotome. That is all.

That you don't have to worry. According to Macross tradition, such is the most likely pair.

How about Macross Zero's birdman unit, Sara's song and resulting life regeneration? Vajra's markings is similar to Macross Zero's markings on the floating rocks.

The BIRDMAN unit was neither a Supervision unit nor a Zentradi unit. It was a Protoculture biomechanical unit, which was very similar to the Vajra, but vastly more powerful.

Indeed, the folks at Macross F is facing 'THE' protoculture.

The birdman unit has the materialization technology.
Materialization corresponds to comparably large energy requirement and production.

I was focusing on the common spiral markings.

Well M-F's screenwriter Hiroyuki Yoshino also help in writing Mai-HIME/Mai-Otome i.e. similarities between controllers/conductor/slave lord and bio-mechanical slave units.
