        Well, I was aware of Macross first, due to the Robotech RPG,
though I didn't find out its origins until later. Gundam I got
introduced to early on by Zs Anime UK articles, but it was quite some
time before I actually *saw* any Gundam. I saw Macross first through

        I've heard the Gundam/Star Trek one before, but its the first
time I've heard anyone describe Macross in similar terms, though it does
seem quite fitting. Its possible to read a little too much into the
analogies, though, I think - I think its better to think of it as
parallel evolution - where two very similar beasts develop along similar
lines to each other but completely independently...
