Carrier Operations... IN SPACE!!
OK, posting multiple shots per episode is kinda kicking my butt, so just one per episode for now unless something really special pops up.
EPISODE 5: Transformation
Iconic Scene: The Macross transforms for the first time, of course.
Quotable Quotes: So, this is the Macross's transformation.
Best character: In this episode it would have to go to Global. He once again shows that he's and honorable man but is willing to do what's necessary.
Best Death: I'm pretty sure I saw some poor sod get sucked out into space.
One thing I noticed about this episode was how Hikaru had a scene that somewhat mirrored one in DYRL only this time its Hikaru getting awfully fatalistic. That seems to be a thing with SDF Macross and the 80s entries: Characters getting suddenly fatalistic. Also, I prefer the Macross The First's Gina Bartrow as the Macross's head science/engineering honcho whatever.

I think this is the first time we see a Destroid in the show. About time, it's episode 5 already!
