Macross TV Episode 30: Viva Maria

This episode’s title refers to Max and Milia’s daughter Komilia Maria.  Robotech changed the title to “Viva Miriya”, and of course, as a lead-in to Southern Cross, changed Maria’s name to Dana.

A group of people from the Macross go to Britai's ship for the mission to capture the satellite factory. Here, a Zentradi soldier hits a button to lower the landing platform.

There are Hikaru's white VF-1S, and Max and Milia's blue and red VF-1J's.

Britai is quite the host!

Milia lowers the pod holding Maria. Note the screen, "Maria is beautiful"

Milia's facial proportions just aren't right

Nice catch, Misa!

Misa walks in, to Hikaru's surprise

Heh, Misa is the hospitable host

It's almost like Misa and Hikaru are dating, and the serious question of having kids comes up. In Robotech, their conversation is about Hikaru not having seen Minmay in several months.

Hikaru responds that he's fine with kids. And here comes another question...

Unfortunately, before Misa is able to ask her question, she gets paged for duty

Britai's ship has come across a destroyed Supervision Army warship. In Robotech, it's a Zentradi recon ship.

Exsedol concludes the ship was recently destroyed

Misa wants to investigate the ship, but Britai objects because it's a distraction, and may be a booby trap, just like the Macross was.
