When I first saw this episode I immediately was reminded of the destruction of the Death Star in Return of the Jedi.  Scott/Lando destroys a crucial central power source and the entire place explodes from the inside out.  Scott’s Alpha/The Milleniuim Falcon then has to manuever all over the place in order to escape the closing explosion.  Scott/Lando emerge in the nick of time from the exploding structure.  Add a few bear creatures and a lightsaber duel and George Lucas would be suing.

It was so intence!  I like the part where Scott said he only had one salvo left and didn’t know if it was enough to get through the wall!

Then BOOM!  He’s through!

Then that good feeling of victory for our side and everything is clear and we think we might actually beable to win! ^_^

The Fortress is one of my favorite episodes of New Gen. :D

There’s an episode in Southern Cross where the tanks need to race down the hull of the Robotech Masters ship only to end up at some tube that leads to the ship’s core.  Dana uses his targeting computer to figure out the perfect trajectory and boom!  Blows up the ship from within.  Does that sound like a Star Wars movie to anyone?

Two episodes later Dana and crew get trapped in the big ship’s garbage compactor.  The roof of the compactor starts coming down to crush them all.  “Wait, don’t fire your laser, the walls are laser proof!”  Tell me that doesn’t also remind you of Star Wars.  Dana fires her laser and it bounces all around the room.

I think they bear a strinking resemblance to those “Walkers”(?).  You know the ones I mean? Those things that the ewoks destroy and Chewbacca commendeers one.


Ace, good observations.


Beef! if you want to talk “A New Hope”, how about Carpenter’s ship in “The Outsiders”. Theres a couple of shots of his Tokunagawa that are very much like that Star Destroyer in ANH.

What about the Southern Cross armor itself? Kind of “Storm Trooperish” wouldn’t you say?

That old adventure flick with the spinning disk of death?  What similarity does it have to Robotech?

Are you just setting them up so I can make fun of ‘em now Hermann?  C’mon man, you just compared the Southern Cross to the most inept military in all the galaxy.  (Crud, why do I think a bunch of Star Wars fans are going to attack me pointing out how cool Storm Troopers are outside of the movies??)

Honestly though, their armor is somewhat Storm-trooper-ish.  I’ll try to leave it at that though.

It makes sense, as the Star Wars sequels (1980, 1983) were huge right around the time that the Robotech series were being made (1982, 83 & 84).
