Hey everyone...Well lets start with the bad news...Lancer is getting a divorce...
Now that that is done, I am here listening to Journey's "Don't stop believing" which is kind of a theme song right now for me. I am just trying to live 1 day at a time, which is hard for a guy like me who always want "to look away, to the future. Not looking at where he is...what he is doing" (If you don't know who said that then you deserve a smack w/ a wet noodle) Oh and I got a new computer so I want to do these things more often now, and I want to do a webcast since this thing has a webcam on it.
Ok now for the RT stuff...Its now the end of summer and so far Kevin & Co. have not really come out w/ anything new w/ RLAM. I guess no news is good news but you know when we heard about Iron Man a lot of ppl were skeptical and we didnt hear a lot about that. (Hey my Itunes is now playing the Theme of RT) Yes I know random...Anyways I know all of us is looking forward to this movie and I just hope that Kevin and Tommy (bcuz I asked them both) will let the director or ask the director to let me host a behind the scenes look at RLAM. For just a uber geek in RT that would be sooo COOL!!!!
And here I is....
Seriously though, and for those that may be wondering I do understand and occasionally even speak in proper English.
Recently got promoted and fielded my first Warhammer 40k Army. It's the 3rd Company Ultramarines. So far they have won the only battle they entered. Hopefully their luck will continue.
Lancer here after a brief hiatus...
We fans are coming up w/ a Fan convention of Robotech 25th Anniversary. Now what would make this convention a success? Well I know that we have to join forces w/ other Sci-fi genres to make this work so that means Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, maybe something else w/ Robotech. Now besides the usual suspects of voice actors, HG guys and other anime people, I think we also need Michael Bradley & his band, I would like to have the ENTIRE Macross V. A.s also I would like to have some kind of booth for fans to show off their collection of RT, BSG, B5...You know that M. Strazyski would be nice as well as EP of BSG. Macek & Co. would be cool for RT.
Now right now I am just spitballing but for this to be a RAGING success it needs to have something SPECTACULAR! I mean 25 yrs is a long time and a big deal, maybe getting some of the writers of RTLAM or Tobey Maguire to come out and talk about why he is wanting to do RTLAM and what character he wants to play (if he wants to play in it).
A certain someone will know what this is all about. I guess that this is what I was thinking about when I thought about the Super-Rats. A crazy ass, possibly drug enduced rat. It was Rat-Fink all along!
Ya se gente que todos siempre bajamos cosas del internet, desde la nueva película más reciente de los cines hasta los nuevos DVD's que están por salir. En privado desde la soledad de nuestro cuarto, bajamos lo que sea. Pero en el caso de Robotech, como nos afecta?
En EU son millones los que bajan cosas en diferentes programas de P2P (termino de compartir). Pero son millones tambíen los que compran las copias originales. Por ejemplo yo tengo mi copia original de Robotech Shadow Chronicles (RSC) pero tambíen tengo una copia con subtítulos en español. Dicha copia fue la que la familia disfrutó ya que en casa solo yo se ingles (y malo). Pero el hecho fue que yo ordené mi copia de RSC, hice mi parte (recuerden que es totalmente legal hacer una copia de respaldo).

Well I have just put on my first RT party for my B-day and I must say it was a complete success...Great BBQ and great friends made for a great evening of FUN!!
During that time I was able to come up w/ an awesome idea for the RLAM...My Official list of the cast...
As Dolza busily plotting his plan, Breetai Kridanik orders an assault to infiltrate SDF-1 by surprise in March 2011, by taking advantage of Daedalus Attack Maneuver. As the battle rages inside SDF-1 bowels & Zentraedi mechas wreak havoc all over Macross City within, several Zentraedi troopers of the Minmei cult members take the opportunity to defect to micronians side, a surprise move that later tips the battle over to SDF-1 defenders favor. Khyron, who later goes on murderous rampage hunts & kills his own troops he believes are contamined in the botched assault, carries out his own version of purging the micronians influence within his ranks. As reports of wide scale cultural contamination within Imperial Fleet ranks unsettle Breetai Kridanik & his fleet commanders, Azonia Laplamiz secretly files the reports to Supreme Commander Dolza.
On SDF-1, after an initial research carry out to the Zentraedi defectors, it is found that the Zentraedi cell structure is indistinguishable from human & SDF-1 Command concludes that Zentraedi are not aliens, but perhaps an off-shoot of humanity. Even more surprisingly, from information divulged by the defectors, nearly all Zentraedi within the vast Imperial Armada are enamored by human culture. SDF-1 sends its 1st Officer, Lt. Cmmdr. Lisa Hayes back Earth-side to persuade & convince UEG High Command to pursue negotiation with the Zentraedi. But most importantly, another event take both humans & Zentraedi by surprise is of a love story between star-crossed lovers. Zentraedi top ace, Miriya Paarino has infiltrated SDF-1 months before during Ontario Incident - with a mission to hunt down her micronian nemesis. This leads her to 1st Lt. Maximillian Sterling, a top Valkyrie Veritech pilot, as unlikely legendary romance between them blossoms. Captain Henry Gloval orders the broadcast of lovers wedding transmit to both Earth & the Imperial Armada in April 2011, a calculated tactical move which mean as a psychological assault to Zentraedi forces, & serves as a reminder to UEG High Command that the alien is indeed capable of embracing humanity.
Catch off-guard by the current event, Commander Breetai launches one last major assault to destroy SDF-1 under orders of distraught Dolza. During the battle, SDF-1 pilots take great care to disable their Zentraedi opponents rather than destroying them, a move that are noticed by Zentraedi field commanders. Apart from that, several fleet commanders report to Breetai of the threats of mutiny by Zentraedi soldiers who refuse to fight & kill their defected comrades aboard SDF-1. Facing with widespread mutinies within the Imperial Fleet, Breetai orders a unilateral cease-fire with SDF-1 & sends his Domillian, Exedore Formo as Zentraedi emissary to the battered ship to pursue negotiations with the Micronians.
In February 2011, follows by several disturbing reports given over to Dolza, he begins to formulate multi-staged plan to deal & eventually destroy the micronians. Determines to counter the micronians threats, perhaps to cover his own undisguised plan to finally thwart the Robotech Masters overlordship of his gigantic race, Dolza orders several Zentraedi fleets guarding within the Empire & its fringes to withdraw & rejoin his burgeoning Gorg BoDolza Fleet (Dolza's Grand Fleet). All these are done in specific time period as not to arouse Masters suspicions, whom has been having communication breakdowns with their Zentraedi slave warriors.
It is to be believed that after Dolza finally deals with the micronians, he tends to bring his next war over to Master's territories, to finally subjugate the Masters & bring a new era to Zentraedi race themselves. As his grandiose plan begins to take shape, Dolza knows he has to command loyalty from all Zentraedi Fleet Commanders, especially from Automated Factory Satellite Division, Reno Broger Command. Dolza also issues several outright executions of Zentraedi high-ranking officers who openly oppose his expansionism policies, & secretly orders special Zentraedi assassination squads - Nous-Grandiel units - to infiltrate the Zentraedi High Command ranks & weed out the dissidents or those who has doubts over his plans. Several high ranking Zentraedi officers from elite Zentraedi Divisions such as Commander Zeraal Braedur of Bejeta 5th Mechanised Division & ace pilot Commander Kiyora Tekiva of Meltran Armored Assault Wing pledge their loyalties to Dolza's cause.
Unbeknownst to Dolza, his plan is leaked over to Zentraedi Border Fleet Command. The Zentraedi Borderers, as they are known, are autonomous units that answers directly to Robotech Masters, have always carry out infiltration activities within Zentraedi Regular Armies to spy for any anomalies or irregularities elements amongst Dolza's force that may jeopardize the Masters control over their slave warriors. The disturbing reports forwarded by spies regarding Dolza's scheme, Zentraedi Border Fleet Command issues orders to every Zentraedi Border Fleet Commanders not to give their support to Dolza & to gear up for possible upcoming civil war that may threaten the Robotech Imperium.
While Dolza waits impatiently to complete his ascendancy over Robotech Imperium throne, all he needs is a trigger event that will put his grandiose plan into motion. Indeed, the trigger is provided by series of events in Sol-system, where Breetai's Imperial Fleet are facing off with their most unpredictable foe, the micronians. With the capture of Zor's ship & the last of Protoculture matrices stored aboard it, Dolza can be unstoppable. However, the latest twists of events in Sol-system provide several surprises of its own, much against what Dolza have hope for.
Follow by Azonia's inability to capture SDF-1, while precariously holds the loyalties of combined Zentraedi troops under her command in check, Zentraedi High Command decides to put Breetai Kridanik back in charge of SDF-1 reclamation mission, with an added bonus, together with the command of 1 million strong ships of Adoclass Imperial Fleet. Never before in the entire Zentraedi Armada's history, a force of such magnitude being assembled (apart from the 800,000 ships under Dolza command assembled & bombards a Disciples of Zor's rebel colony back in 1520 CE), comprising of the elites of the Zentraedi forces. Dolza has finally taken the micronian threats seriously basing from findings bring forward by Breetai Kridanik & Exedore Formo, follows by sporadic reports by Azonia Laplamiz in Sol-system. Thus, in June 2010, the great fleet arrives; whose arrival is closely scrutinized by visibly surprised & frightened UEG back on Earth.
However, fate has something in store waiting for the Imperial Fleet arrival in Sol-system. A group of Zentraedi spies infiltrating Zor's ship during SDF-1's successful entry to Earth months earlier, begin their observation of micronian society & culture, while mapping out the vulnerable areas of the vast internal SDF-1 structure. During their brief stay, the motley crew is bewildered & enamors with micronian way of life, even manages to live off & fit in with the displaced Macross City's refugees. Soon enough, they developed a penchant in collecting (or stealing) micronian artifacts for the purpose of study & observations (oddly enough, a large number of their artifacts features Lynn Minmay, a celebrity in Macross City aboard SDF-1). With their fascination over human culture that differs greatly from the strict, regimental life Zentraedi have known, it worth to mention that the motley crew manages not to carry another important objective of their mission, as saboteurs. If they have carry out several sabotage activities aboard SDF-1, the outcome of the war will be different. The spies return to the Imperial Fleet hovers above Earth with emotional & psychological baggage - things that make us human. A wheel is set in motion soon after the briefing between the spies & Commander Breetai.
The spies, whose action are hail as heroes following by their arguably successful mission within enemy lines, soon create a cult whose idol is a micronian propagandist, a certain Lynn Minmay. Armed with various smuggled audiovisual devices centers solely on Minmay, the cult grow out of proportions, infects the entire vaunted Imperial Fleet within mere weeks. Exaggerated stories of the mysteries surrounding micronian mating rituals, the wonders of micronian way of life, goddess-like stature Minmay possesses are penetrating every Zentraedi ears, albeit veils in secrecy. Perhaps most importantly, the cultural contamination main catalysts have brought a new wonder aboard the Breetai's flagship, an a/v device known as television. It is not long before every ship within the fleet intercepts & tunes in to MBS (Macross Broadcasting Station) channel, which airs untold number of Minmay appearances & performances, plus a full view of micronian cultures in its glory. Regular broadcast feature reruns of Miss Macross Pageant & romantic soap operas awaken the sensual awareness amongst the opposite sexes within the fleet. All these changes go unnoticed & flourish under the very noses of fleet commanders, even Breetai.
In January 2011, the 1st motion picture produce in space - stars by Lynn Minmay, ‘Zhao Bai Long' (Small White Dragon) premieres aboard SDF-1. Breetai & his fleet advisor, Exedore view the intercepted movie transmission with keen interest as other fleet commanders within his giant armada, without knowing that lesser Zentraedi troopers also have access to the transmission. That movie cements & elevates Minmay status higher within Zentraedi eyes & ears, as reports of dereliction of duties & lax of disciplines amongst the troops begins to pour in. The cultural contamination within the Imperial Fleet is complete.
