Oddly, the vibe I got from the pool was more Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow than some variant on Horatio Hornblower but hey, British Macross sounds cool.
May I make a small fan plea? Ditch Lynn Minmay's whinny ass ways. Make her more like Mina Harker or some sort of interesting British fem-fatale like Haggard's She or Doyle's Irene Adler (yeah, I know she's really eduardian), I would appreciate it. I admit, if LM vodoo dolls had been given out back in the 80's I would have punctured mine to bits.
<grin> Besides, there's soo many cooler possibilities than using lame characters like Lynn (or what's his name - the one that dies for no good reason - the blond pilot dude?). I mean, it's an AU Macross, which means you can cool people like the Doctor or Edison Bell show up. I think they'd fit nicely in with the steam-punk/Zentradi mix.
Manon, Maccadon, Orado, etc.
Denton, never leave home without it.
"If we are marked to die, we are enough
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater the share of honour
God's will I pray thee wish not one man more" - Henry V, Act, IV Scene III
