WMG: Irresponsible Captain Tylor
ICT is set in the Golden Age that precedes Warhammer 40,000
, Ciaphas could easily be an Identical Grandson
of Yamamoto. Somewhere along the line, his descendants decided the lunatic he used to serve under had the right idea and began a Blackadder
style tradition of self serving cowardice, and in doing so got granted a portion of Tylor's insane luck...but also inherited Yamamoto's misfortune
The show is the future of the Universal Century
In episode 3 Lieutenant Makoto Yamamoto reads out Tylor's letter and clearly sates the date on which Tylor was made a captain. UC 6998.
United Planets Space Force (UPSF) is a possible descendant of the Earth Federation equivalent.
Tylor is like General grant.
A failure at everything in life... except the army. or in this case the navy. It's why the shows starts with him on the street I presume homeless. He's tried everything else in life and was good at none of it. So he joined the navy and found he had a knack for it...
- a note even as I write this it occurs to me: Grant after the civil war ran for President and won... Can you imagine a president Tylor?
- Funily enough, that's actually one of the names of the seventh light novel; "The Irresponsible President Tylor"
