Trivia

Episode 6 "Protect and Survive" suffers from the above mentioned Battlemech limitations, changing Prince Victor's 'Mech from the Victor-class he was named after to a Mauler, and Galen Cox's Crusader to a Centurion. The latter is understandable. When the Battletech boardgame was created in 1984, FASA had licensed (although the licenses may have been of dubious authority) designs from a number of anime shows including "Dougram", "Crusher Joe" and "Macross" as the basis for the earliest "BattleMechs". By 1990, FASA was embroiled in a bitter legal battle with Harmony Gold over the use of the designs, and by 1995, FASA had settled with HG by pulling the 11 offending designs from use. One of them was the Crusader, originally the Armored Valkyrie from "Macross". See more »

Could have been better, but cut short.
10 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

Despite it's contradictions with the original source, the Battletech Animated Series is a decent enough representation of the series fiction, even drawing upon events from the books (such as the involuntary evacuation of Victor Davion from a battle). The major crippling point was that it was canned just at the end of the first season, leaving the series perpetually at a stand-still. If someone could get the rights to it, I think it would be a good thing to bring it back, especially if using animation similar to that used in Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles, or several of the computer animated series out today. Especially with the popularity of the computer games spun off from it, such as Mechwarrior 3 and 4, and Mech Commander 1 and 2.
