About the Island Cluster Class New Macross Colonization Ships, like the Frontier and the Galaxy. Since these Colonization Fleets don't have Core Ships like the Three Star Class Factory Ships, and Eisenstein Class Research ships, do some of the smaller towed Islands replace these core ships. For example having one of the Islands as a Industrial and Factory Section, or a shipyard. Also maybe one similar to a West Point Class Training Ship. We know that Island 3 has research labs and such from the series, but I was wondering if these other Islands replace the larger, far more expensive core ships in the larger colony fleets like Macross Frontier?
They would/could. They need to produce their own food and goods for the fleet. It has to happen somewhere in the fleet.
A Small Question, this one really about the older regular New Macross Colony Fleets, do they by chance have civilian populations on the other Core Ships, for I seem to remember someone mentioning that the Sunnyflower and the Riviera Core Ships.
