Re: Yukikaze: Tom Cruise to star in live-action adaptation!
It's a shame they decided to make this classic their next victim.
BTW: I have to admit that some of my favorite moments are the Mave's "engine test" mentioned above and the one a few episodes earlier, where a Super Sylph (Yukikaze's first airframe) plays tag with an alien missile inside a canyon. Third place would be the one where the Rafe is used as a "human shield".
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
