Because I totally never bought into that for obvious reasons.

I'm gonna disagree with this, partly. There was nothing too advanced about it at all, it was a great application of everything witnessed thus far. The problem however is where it and everyone's aeronautical fleets came from since only a year prior float systems and energy shields were bleeding edge experimental tech, and there's also the matters of the price tag attached to what is essentially a terrestrial DEATH STAR and how anyone could possibly hide it both financially and physically to say nothing of how it pretty much had no function at all without FLEIJA upon which work only began late in the first season. It takes years to build ships and it takes even longer to build flying terror fortresses of doom.

As for the partly part: I fully endorse cutting it. If anything not having an untouchable base from which to lob WMDs at the enemy at your leisure might lead to a better battle. Perhaps even some tactics/strategy! Also the whole thing was just extremely silly.

Also for the cut: Pink sword.

Also to be on topic: I always saw Lelouch as a sort of competent Cobra Commander (I blame the mask) and as a the chief villain through the first season, I can't be the only one can I?
Given that his chief opponent was an empire on par with Nazi Germany, how can you say that?
