Episode 232 - Ripple In Time

Episode 232: Ripple in Time

Apparently we can do this now

Time travel is a plot device that is hard to use well, and this Robotech fic exists largely to prove that point. Having decided that they can indeed travel back in time, the Haydonites decide that the best course of action is to go to one specific point for no readily defined reason other than it makes for a decent team up. Fortunately, the Invid Regis can also travel in time, so why she doesn’t use that power to stop centuries of intergalactic conflict form ever occurring is a mystery. Instead she sends out heroes (and by that I mean Communications Officer and some other guys) back to five minutes after when the bad guys went to. Confused? So am I and that’s only the first chapter!

Spoiler: Alex Romero dies.

  1. I can remember several Robotech fanfics that involved "time travel" (maybe it all springs from those fabled rumours about Carl Macek's "year-long series" turning itself into a "closed time loop"), and in some ways this particular one isn't that different... I was, though, slightly intrigued to see it taking note of Shadow Chronicles, as much as I simply haven't been looking for modern Robotech fanfics to see if any of them do. Anyway, the MSTing seemed entertaining and not too mean-spirited, whether "on topic" or "off."
