Maybe? IMO it's more likely that Earth was completely devastated in WW3, and that they wanted to build their military HQ in somewhere safe and remote and hadn't been bombed into ground already.UN headquarters in Alaska (Global Warming?)
It's been a while since I saw the show, but I'm pretty sure a large part of it is because Misa's dad wanted to get his daughter off of the ship.I mean if they were just going to have a Zoom call why bother having them physically come all the way to Alaska from the Macross?
They might explain it better in later episodes, but what's going on here is the UN is offering up the Macross up as a sacrificial lamb to the Zentradi. They noticed that the Zentradi's attention seems centered on the Macross, so they think that if they disassociate themselves from the Macross and its crew, that the Zentradi will leave Earth alone. It's complete nonsense of course, but that's in character for how the show views/respects military/political leadership. And this isn't the last time something like this happens in the franchise. In Macross 7, the NUN hangs the Macross 7 and her entire civilian population out to dry and orders them on a suicide mission in hopes that the Protodevilin just magically go away and don't bother the rest of the galaxy after the Macross 7 Fleet is destroyed. A similar situation happens in Macross Frontier as well, and in Delta, the NUN straight up thinks the Macross Elysium and its refugees are expendable/acceptable collateral damage.Ah, grand conspiracy. This new unified government is off to a great start... We can't just let people go home! We lied and told everyone they were dead. What, and they're still making them the Captain's problem? I mean isn't that what internment camps are for? Hard to run a giant spaceship and take car of 56k civilians... What a stupid mess!
IIRC it is, and it's legal, but it's still broadly frowned upon/considered taboo by most people.Is cousin marrying a thing in Japanese culture?
