True enough. I have some design note for Macross that states that nuclear
engines are used, but I have yet to see anything in English about the
transformation technology (come to think of it, I haven't seen anything about
this in Gundam, either).

With the exception of the Minovsky super science and general cinematics,
Gundam seems to me to be a great example of future living and space warfare.
