1.) There are substantial differences between Macross and Robotech. It's not just translation issues. Proto culture is two entirely different things in the two stories, which fundamentally change the story being told.Are there actually substantial differences between SDF Macross and the Robotech Macross Saga aside from translation/VA?
Also: Macross/Robotech is over 30 years old, it should be in the public domain.

Macross-proto culture is a reference to prehistoric culture that saw human beings discover how to procreate asexually through technology, wich resulted in a binary gender split in culture and without love in their basic social dynamic, they turned increasingly to spaceward expansion, conquest of the stars and forgetting what it means to have affection for others.
Robotech-proto culture is a power source, primarily to fuel weapons of war, cultivated by the Robotech masters from the Invid flower of life. Zentraedi were created to be giant soldiers for the Ronotech masters to fight the Invid.
2.) Eh, probably not.
Scientifically, you could 'culture' a flower in a dish to see how you might to be able to extract somwthing of use from it.I never understood why they changed "The Proto-Culture" to "protoculture" as a fuel. I mean, ok fine you are mixing Mospeada and Southern Cross, but just call it something else, remove the reference. Proto-Culture essentially means first people, lol. Why would first people be a fuel?
oh maybe if their fossils resulted in fossil fuels...
