Read "Transformers: Frontier" [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5348638/1/Transformers_Frontier here]].

TF:F is a ''Crossover'' fic between ''Macross'' and ''Transformers'', set two years after the finale of MacrossFrontier. A Decepticon strike force pursues an Autobot warship to the Vajra homeworld. Plot ensues. It is currently ongoing, updates subject to my real-life schedule.

It is also important to note that the basic premise is that the Macrossverse is the "default" universe, and that the Transformers have had their backstories edited so that I could make it so that the two franchises share a single universe, and so that battles between [[{{Transformers}} guys that can be damaged by 21st century military hardware]] and guys with [[{{BFG}} BFGs]] who make judicious use of MacrossMissileMassacre don't end up being a curbstomp in favor of the latter. [[FanDumb Fandom]] being what it is, this does not always go well with some readers.

!!This story contains examples of:
* AcePilot: As per the original series, SMS pilots are usually a cut above the standard NUNS pilot unless said pilot belongs to Diamond Force. Starscream's Seekers, on average, are just as much above any human pilot.
* ActionGirl: Arcee
* AutobotsRockOut: Not just the songs from the series, but also as of Chapter 10 [[spoiler: [[LadyGaGa Bad Romance]] and [[RickRoll Never Gonna Give You Up]]]]
* EncyclopediaExposita: a feature of the Jack [=McKinney=] {{Robotech}} novels, reproduced here
* {{BFG}}: Many characters/ships have these. One of Arcee's components pack the equivalent of Brera's gun (anti-ship beam rifle). Astrotrain, being big enough to step over Zentradi, packs the equivalent to the SDF-1 Macross's main gun on his shoulders. Of course, the Macross-class ships also have these.
* CombiningMecha: Two types - Gestalts as in the original series, and inferior drone copies that are more powerful than standard drones when combined but still inferior to true Cybertronians.
* GoodRepublicEvilEmpire: [[spoiler: Autobots and Decepticons respectively at the beginning of the war - kind of. Depends entirely on your political views, and whether you value governmental effectiveness or peace and freedom.]]
* HollywoodTactics: Am trying to avert this by providing explanations for why battles go the way they go.
* ItsRainingMen: How Cybertronians make planetfall
* ImmuneToBullets: played with. All Cybertronians are extremely tough to kill, being MadeOfIron and all. ECM also makes using homing weapons difficult, and some (such as Starscream's Seekers) are too small to be targeted by ship guns. Still, shoot them enough and they will die.
* MadeOfIron: Cybertronians. Between energy shielding/barriers, armor, self-repair protocols based on breaking down existing material for "internal matter synthesizers" to use in reconstructing damaged parts. And the bigger the bot, the better they are at this.
* MeaningfulName: Cybertronians generally do this.
* [[KickTheDog Kill The Dog]]: [[spoiler: Frenzy and Ai-kun]]
* OneManArmy: Most Cybertronians are this, provided they are of sufficient size.
* PointDefenseless: As an ex-NJROTC cadet, I generally try to mention the presence of point defense at least once every battle.
* PoweredArmor: Zentradi usually field these.
* TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized: [[spoiler: Decepticons' backstory]]
* TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified: [[spoiler: The Decepticons' backstory, according to them]]
* ShoutOut: This being Transformers and Macross, many. The Transformers Wiki was very useful in this regard. Also, any alien force the Cybertronians are mentioned as fighting/having fought in the past is generally a shout-out to some sci-fi franchise or other. Ryuuto Machida's given first name bears some resemblance to a certain MMA fighter.
* WeHaveReserves: Cybertronian drones are this. Cybertronians are not, as no Allspark means death is permanent. NUNS is also this.
!!This story will contain examples of:

* CoolVsAwesome: [[spoiler: Ramjet vs Machida]]
