Really? I don't think I've ever seen that stated anywhere.

It could be an inconsistency on their part.
Against Macross 7 Dynamite?

Or have they found a way to bridge the two species?

What if it wasn't sex, or something produced without having to involve sex cells? Mikhail isn't pure Zolan, it says he just has Zolan blood, he could be 1/8th part Zolan and the only thing he inherited are the ears.

That could be a possibility. That, or the writers are fooling with us. Or they got everything screwed up. I don't know. Perhaps it will be explained in the series.


Final word: I have no idea.

I didn't know they stated Zolans and Humies can't breed with each other. Never seen that in official publications, although I could be missing something.

It's a fictional radio show. It's not meant to be taken seriously. Not while there are counter examples like Mikhail and Graham's daughters, and not to mention that they clearly don't have pouches and lack breasts and clearly are by definition not marsupials now, if they ever were.

Zoliet isn't a Zolan, Zomeo is just a sicko. Either that, or we have never seen a native Zolan on screen.

Zomeo and Zoliet seems to be an analogue to Romeo and Juliet.

Why? The hotel's atrium was so massive and spacius that had they cooled the interior too rapidly it would have rained inside due to condensation.

Rain. Inside a hotel atrium. In a building in the middle of a desert.

If something like the Burj Al-Arab can create simulated rain without any technology and such, it shouldn't be that hard to create rain on Frontier. They have a simulated atmosphere, and a large body of water from which to take their moisture from. Even without technological manipulation as long as the proper conditions are met it should rain naturally on Frontier.
I actually raised that rain stuff in the previous thread and also commented that it would be kind of wasteful. Anyway, thanks for this real-life example now I have some explanation.

Based on the summaries I'm getting, Frontier had been conserving its energy for the fold. This suggests that it got cooler in Island 1 and thus rain clouds formed. As for the rain being wasteful, I guess they have some filtration system that could easily get water from the "sea" so the rain doesn't matter. Besides, Frontier had a closed system so the water isn't going anywhere anyway.

God i feel horrible for Sheryl to watch her force that smile even with the realization that Grace was not lying was heartbreaking. For some reason i have completely stopped paying attention to Ranka and have shifted to Sheryl mode because shes just a lot more interesting right now. Well looks like Alto's brother finally got a way to get him to come home you sly devil you

Not to mention she's a true loli not faux loli like Ranka.

Naked Basara and daddy Graham too.

Lunar puts out both h264 and Xvid subs... although for some reason their Xvid subs won't play on my DVD player or my PS3

I wonder if he got the pouch, too...

Somewhat iffy fanservice, but... where the heck is the pouch anyway? For that matter do males or females get it? Hmmmm....

So if space plagues do occur, how come they didn't insist on screening Sheryl when she first boarded? She was on her last stop on a galactic wide tour. Picking something up along the way was a real possibility. We already know they screened people that came in contact with the Vajra, so they do monitor such things.

Grace's legerdemain was too much for them, no doubt.

Can't say I don't like the idea of a little slight of hand damning the entire fleet.

Yeah, it was more palatable when being used defensively like that.
