Chronological Reading Order[edit]

I have corrected (to some degree) the chronological reading order. Based on the following information:

a) according to the posted timelines, the Sentinels arrived at Tirol in 2025, well before Dana Sterling's graduation in 2029.

b) While there may be some debate as to the placement of "Dark Powers" and "Death Dance" in the exact timeline, an event occurs in "World Killers" which places its timeline towards the end of the 2nd Robotech War, when Aurora psychically contacts Dana;

c) Rubicon takes place during the Third Robotech War. There's some indication in the book that hyperspace travel has lessened the time between folds, so it's reasonable to assume that the book took place either just before or during the events leading up to the end of Symphony of Light.

If anyone has data that can accurately place Dark Powers and Death Dance, rock on. 5minutes 23:31, 10 June 2007 (UTC)


More on the Reading Order[edit]

According to McKinney's forward in The Master's Gambit, the correct reading order is Books 1-6, The Zentraedi Rebellion, the ENTIRE Sentinels series, The Master's Gambit, Books 7-9, Before the Invid Storm, Books 10-12, and, finally, The End of the Circle.

If the author himself recommends a particular reading order, shouldn't that be the suggested one? Dusty duster (talk) 20:18, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Removed Quick Delete tag on image[edit]

A quick delete tag was placed on the reduced-size omnibus bookcover image. The reason for getting rid of it was posted as being designated by a twinkle automation script. In this specific case, before deleting, I think a better reason should be provided other than deletion by some automated function. The change done was: Undid revision 148888101 by Freedomeagle (talk) AnimeJanai 06:33, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

book summaries[edit]

a short summary of each book should be provided, say a paragraph 70.51.11.210 (talk) 06:53, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Contradictions[edit]

This article doesn't explain the clear contradiction that exist in the novelization and the TV version. For example, the "thinking cap" concept makes Louie Nichols' Pupil Pistol in "The Hunters" far less important and yet this along with the rest of the series was novelized without explaining why the Pupil Pistol was such a step forward.--BruceGrubb (talk) 11:38, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
