Hypothetical.

Presume for a moment that Catalyst commissioned a new cartoon Battletech cartoon series, if only as a Netflix exclusive.

What era of the game would you want it set in?

I personally would like to see them start with 3025 and go on from there.

I would just want them to use the same animation studio that has been doing Voltron Legendary defender

If I could do it, the first episode would be in 3013 with the death of Ian Davion at the end and the 2nd would be the rise to the crown of Hanse Davion. The 3rd episode would hope forward a few years and go from there.

As much as I love the Clan era, the foundation of BT is this period just after the 3rd SW and before the 4th SW.

You'd have to start it early on as it allows for the greatest amount of future episodes. As others have said, 3025ish.

Oh come on... We need an episode on Mackie and Star League and libration of Terra. Just a quick flythrough at the beginning to kick off the glorious mess that the Succession wars are.

Easy Answer: You don't use any of the Unseens.

Hard Answer: You use the Project Phoenix versions.

That sounds great, but Harmony Gold claims that mechs like the Atlas and others are ALSO stolen from mecha that they ONLY have the rights too...

I seem them being the biggest issue with a new cartoon and fighting it till either they are give up or pay HG to go away.

Depends on who produces the cartoon and how many lawyers they have! We all know the company with the most lawyers always prevails!

I thought that Harmony Gold was already losing their grip on the CBT franchise.

And folks thought FASA would win against them as well, right now I am not betting on CGL and HBS winning anything.

Essentially, I want the Blood of Kerensky series, but with a little build up.

Use he first season to show the end of the 4th Succession War to say, 3039. This establishes the main players of the Inner Sphere, their heirs that become major characters later on, and sets the tone of the series. I always felt that the characters that came up in the mid 3000s were the most melodramatic and worthy of dramatization.

The epilogue to the last episode would be the Explorer Corps encountering the Clans.

Start the second season without the Explorer Corps explained, just jump the beginning of Blood of Kerensky, etc.

Lets face it, a lot of people like the characters like Victor Davion, Teddy Kurita, Sun Tzu Liao, Vlad, Phelan. Having a good character based series following the stylization of Game of Thrones, Rome, Dune (2001) or even UC Gundam would be the best.
