This is a really small and incomplete star map, even compared to the one they made for Frontier eight years ago. It only cares about the two really weird fleets that spent 50 years traveling out into another galaxy.
Don't think that anon is counting systems with native sentients.
Though I didn't know that the fleets weren't numbered according to their place in the timeline until now. I used to think that there were 50-odd fleets running about with Megaroad 1-23 and Macross 1-25.
Macross ships travel between galaxies now, not just between systems within galaxies? Fold technology is a hell of a thing. That puts them above even Star Wars in terms of travel technology, since Star Wars ships can't travel between galaxies with a handful of exceptions even in the old EU, and even then only very, very slowly.
>>13762204 Oh snap. I forgot they had the official naming. They wouldn't call Frontier the 55th Fleet if they didn't have 54 fleets in front of it.
Looking at the image again, I only count 18 or so lines; 6 to the top left, 8 to the top right cluster, 2 headed to the galactic center, and the 2 at Ragna/Windmere. Either they assed the picture for theatrics' sake or there's a condition to them (maybe fleets still ongoing or those that have established important centres of NUN civilization). By this time in the period, amongst the two headed to the core, IF they are indeed Frontier and Galaxy, Galaxy would have been destroyed and marked with an "x", if those are what I think they meant by marking them that way.
Comparing the starchart in Frontier to this, the alignment of Earth relative to the universe as depicted in the image is largely the same as we see it in both cases (to the "right" of the image). So Galaxy should be just "above" Frontier if those two are indeed the two fleets. I see one of them has settled in a system, but that is the "upper" fleet instead, which would make it Galaxy.
In Frontier's starchart, however, one of the fleets is shown traveling in a large circle, although from Eden rather than from Earth as it is in this case, and headed in the general direction of Ragna/Windmere. Unless the spread point in this image is supposed to be that of Eden, in which case it would make sense that not all 55 fleets are shown.
Has any Macross infobook ever provided a map of fleet movements?
Nothing in the film states they do either, since it's in "a galaxy" far, far away, not galaxies. Mind you, that's just for the sake of sounding good, but nothing in the films opens them up to extra-galactic travel anyways.
>>13762286 >since Star Wars ships can't travel between galaxies with a handful of exceptions even in the old EU That was because of a natural disturbance like in Star Trek, not their actual tech not being capable of traveling the distance.
>>13762426 >You might as well say NASA theoretically could travel to another star if not for the fact the closest system is so far away.
Um, yes? There is a range limit to folding, and it costs energy to fold. That's why folding has always been a choice of last resort in combat situations, since that energy could be used for maintaining the colony ships, producing goods and essentials, or better, more specific folds.
