Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from kitsunedarkfire
Review:
Hmm the macross with actual shields and probably better prepared for.its trip poor zentraedi.

The main cannons on the odyssey are more powerful than anything in the robotech world.other than the reflex cannon and even then i would wager not by much. So this should be fairly interesting.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from CageFire
Review:
Good story. I don't really remember Macross very well, and I don't think I saw the entire series even, but it should be interesting. I do like these Odyssey in another reality fics, but frustratingly they tend not to get very far. Maybe it's because the technology is advanced enough to be a major gamechanger and it screws with the plotline. To me that's not necessarily a bad thing, but I suppose for an author it's more work trying to either work in the existing events or invent their own. I think it's somewhat similar to say putting DBZ characters in another plotline, they're just so ridiculously overpowered in almost any other series, unless the writer nerfs them.
Comments from author:
Indeed I've noticed that's often the case.

It won't be the case here though as one thing with Robotech is the technology levels are actually quite comparable plus this is as much a fusion as it is a crossover.

I like SG1 and really enjoy the new views some of the stories here present. This one is one of the best. I look forward to more and more.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from SnakeFox
Review:
Glad to see a new chapter! Quick question though, the line from Landry's inner monologue: "...especially if the Goa’uld did indeed exist here. Which, given what they’d found when they’d scanned first Antarctica then North Africa while they’d been approaching the planet, looked to indeed be the case." - I've quickly flicked back through chapters 3 and 4, I couldn't find any reference to them having found anything? Am I just forgetting it/missing it?
Comments from author:
No your not missing it. The inner monologue was foreshadowing events to come and some of what Landry can use as a bargaining chip with the UEG.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four V2" from DieselDriver
Review:
I had to be thinking "oh probably not" about the luck the 3 ships would need.

This is a very good beginning despite the rough start. Even that was pretty good. Hey, you are the one who wasn't satisfied. Fine. You're the author. I liked the first two chapters just fine. There were a few grammatical errors but so what. No one seems to get them all.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from DieselDriver
Review:
Good story so far a possible mistake though, How did Rodriguez know that Carter is female? I didn't see anywhere that her gender was mentioned either through pronoun or title.

I'm guessing at this point they never get home, possible but only very very low odds. So what happens back in their home dimension? Is Earth conquered? Destroyed? Will lassie rescue Timmy from the well?

Review of chapter "Chapter Four V2" from draconis
Review:
.
Good replacement chapter. Yet more surprises in store for Alaska base personnel as they see what the 3 ships can do in Earth's atmosphere. I'd bet just the two F302's could take out the oncoming squadron. Were I Landry, unless there was no other choice, I wouldn't want to show them the drone technology just yet.

Unless I'm not remembering correctly, the "Puddle Jumpers" had no point-defence system at all. No beam or kinetic weaponry...just the fairly limited supply of over-kill drones. Also seems very odd, particularly without a point-defence system that the Ancients didn't give them a shield. After all, a cloak doesn't protect the jumper from shrapnel, over-pressure, or from debris strikes. At the speeds it travels it literally must have a kinetic shield of some sort and that wasn't addressed in canon...and that's also assuming the hull and "windscreen" protects from radiation in space and weapons (for which a shield would otherwise also be required).

Question to think about re: your chapter's reference to apparently limited knowledge of habitable planets (with/without Stargates)...wouldn't the Asgard have included their list of all planets with Stargates and/or populated planets in the Milky Way galaxy? (Especially ones with the Asgard covered under the Protected Planets Treaty). There'd likely not be a 100% match-up in this universe, but I would think it means Landry wouldn't be starting from scratch their search for an alternative to Earth.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four V2" from Vianca
Review:
Much better, though if I was Laundry, I would still be a bit wary.
I would also hold quite a lot back.
See it like this, to Laundry, Robotech Earth is just some newly found planet with a culture slightly above Earth´s norm (if you forget the SGC).
Then think on how they treated similar planets?

Finding out if the Antarctica Outpost is there, is step one, step two is checking it and bringing it online for a network check, in order to detect the other outposts still working.
That would give them the all they need for Atlantis & it´s sister ship, The Tower.
Why that wreck?
With it, you got a place to relocate that super-volcano shipyard to, as in rebuilding The Tower into a shipyard-ship.

This page might help you, if you ever let them play with cityship designs.

As for the ATA-gen, what about the retro-virus?

Review of chapter "Chapter Four V2" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
nitpick
Only _two_ ATA positive people on the entire ship?

Given the jumper and all the Ancient tech they used or might encounter I would expect a dozen or more with the ATA "injection", including 4 or more pilots.
