Well there is one thing by meeting that fleet that you might not have considered. They are a colony ship so they wouldn't want to really go all the way back to Earth as they're looking for a planet to establish a new colony after all. I mean sure they can lead them part of the way but as soon as they find a nice place to set up they would want to do just that right?
You could get some tensions from that, plus the fact that the colonials have to get used to things like aliens such as the Robotech Masters, Zendradi and all that might fly in the face of some of their religious text as well.
Plus if you have battleoids that will also scare the crap out of them too as they are giant robotic tanks. Oh and will you bother to explain how they can communicate since their language is most likely based on old Greek which would have changed in a few thousand years of use as well or just waved that over like in a lot of sci-fi?
As for title ideas. Maybe things like Battlestar Macross, Metting Among the Stars, Lost Among the Stars.

I actually want the ragtag fleet to run into a SDFN-class ship, as they are the mass-produced version of the original SDF-1 Macross, i also think they have much smaller fleets with them being a smaller ship itself, hell i can imagine if the ragtag fleet runs into one, it could of ended up by itself somehow, though if this type of ship ends up as the flagship of the splinter fleet, you could have it that the original fleet was headed by the new macross colony ship and it was acting as a secondary escort, after splitting from the main fleet a folding accident similar to the one in the original series (ether through human error or the folding system was damaged from a attack) sent the SDFN-class ship and some of those ships (some even having to have been cut in half) around it being heavily damaged.
Why the two fleet split, maybe it had something to do with having two flagships, a new macross class and a sdfn class and because of that they could afford splitting up or maybe there was a power dispute between the commanders and crews of the two ships and decided they could not deal with each other any longer, with the sdfn class ship as the flagship of the much smaller splinter fleet.
For the timeline, i say at least before delta do to how that series ended, i say put it around the macross frontier era, during the Vajra War.
I would prefer it if you try yo keep it canon, and i prefer it being the fleet lead by the Galactica to be the ones to meet the macross fleet, I would like to see a rewrite of the series.

If you want a suggestion, the SDF-2. This colony ship went missing, unless they reveal anything new. It could suit the needs of your story. But also seen from Macross Frontier, we can colony ships based on the SDF-1 were in used, not sure when, but considering the Megaroad colony ship was just a overgrown city, not heavy much on various weapons, except defenses, but I could see earlier versions of the various support colony ships, beyond the mere defense fleet. But to prevent them being over powerful, you can only a fraction of the fleet appear along the Colonial Fleet. A few support ships the ancestors of the factory ship, that farming ship, a few defense ships, nothing major similar to those carriers attached to the SDF-1 serving as its arms. Long before their upgrade, similar look, newer weapons, but overall the same boat.
I will state that a full Macross Fleet will be over powerful and absorb the Colonial Fleet to the point it disappear, where their ships are abandoned and the Galactica is now part of the defense fleet. No, the beginning should have the fleet a mixture of the two groups, but with time and the factory ship I could see new ships coming out where the Colonial ships are phased out, or return to their original operations not serving as refugee ships.
And lastly, look up this site: Macross Mecha Manual
This site is covering mecha and ships from each current Macross series on one spot, last being Macross Frontier, including images and technical stuff. This stuff should help you develop earlier models of the colony ships. As Macross Wiki does not really covers this stuff.

Yo! Whatever happened, you banned me some time back.
No explanation, nothing to indicate why. I do recall I was pointing something out, but I can't remember for the life of me what it was and if it was so bad as to get banned by you.
So if you could unban me, that would be great.
Otherwise, I can't give an opinion on nuthin'.

For splitting the fleet, how about a colony ship and its nearby support vessels mis-fold during an (maybe Vagra?) attack, either due to damage to the drives or a rushed entry of the fold destination? Since the colony fold would encompass its nearby support units (or they would take their destination from its computers) they all end up at the far end of the Galaxy and away from the rest of their fleet.
You then still have elements of your original story in play, with the RTF finding itself in the middle of assisting with rescue operations in assistance of the Macross survivors, but more of them and far more capable as well. Though I would probably plan to have final population numbers come out about equal to the Colonials.
Maybe change up the 'Lucky Miracle' part to have the Macross Fleet arrive at New Caprica on the heels of the first landings but before the destruction of the Cloud 9. (I'm seeing damaged ships making emergency landings or crashing to the surface... Colonials freaking out... LOTS of chaos!)
I'd have to re-read to get the Cain subplot and give you an answer... look for that later.
Keep the Factory ship but have it heavily damaged and thus needing significant work and only being able to give a small portion of its potential output... thus keeping it from being the 'have Hermione read it in a book' answer to their problems. Slowly it could have capabilities restored but only /after/ they really need them... kinda like you're always getting ready for the last war but what you have is not optimally useful for what happens next.
I've always enjoyed this story and am greatly looking forward to where you go with this!

First, do want YOU want!
Second, the early colonization fleets were quite small. So you can use one of those. Megaroad-1 would perhaps the best choice because in canon no one knows what happened to them.

It's 2017 when are you going to update this story?
| H Max Marius chapter 7 . 1/30/2016
I notice that the status of this work is not included on your profile page. I hope that means that it is not one of the cancelled/abandoned fics as I find this concept both intriguing and entertaining. Hope you do get back to this story some day.
