One of the cities that was rebuilt on the Earth, which had become burnt to the ground in the First Interstellar War. The construction of valuable parts—such as power condensers necessary for spaceship flight—was carried out in the coastal industrial area of the city. However, the city was attacked by the malcontents led by Kamjin, who had an eye on a power condenser, and they seized one in the raid.
The Unified Forces Fleet—which investigated the Protoculture relic Eiphos (Bird Man) that slept on Mayan Island—had received sealed orders in advance. The orders were something like when failing to obtain the Eiphos or when it was impossible to control the revived Eiphos and it was recognized as a dangerous being, they were to completely destroy it. For that reason, the Unified Forces fleet that faced the investigation had prepared variable-yield Reaction Weapons in advance. Incidentally, "Iconoclasm" indicates the movement to destroy sacred images (icons), which happened in the 8th to 9th centuries in the Christian world. One could say that it was appropriate as the name of the operation that was envisioned to destroy the Eiphos.
The operation that Grace O'conner, Sheryl Nome's manager, advanced under utmost secrecy. Even though the details were not clarified, it seems to have been an operation where Sheryl—who has the V-type infectious disease—was the sample that controls the Vajra to attack the Frontier Fleet. It's conceivable that the proof that substantiates the existence of this operation is that the timing of the Vajra attack on the Frontier Fleet approximately coincided with the time that Sheryl arrived in the fleet. However, Grace changed the plan as Ranka Lee was in the Frontier Fleet, and Ranka had a nature that could be used in exchange for a Vajra Queen. It seems that Grace disposed of Sheryl and switched strategies, with Ranka being used as the new specimen to control the Vajra.
An operation that was drafted and implemented by Maximilian Jīnasu (Max), the captain of the Macross 7 Fleet (the fleet had been ordered by the Earth Unified Government to destroy the Protodevilun). The Stealth Frigate "Stargazer" Defolded above the Varōta star system's 4th planet—considered to be the Protodevilun homeworld—and a unit of 12 Variable Fighters launched from that ship and undertook a raid on the cave where the Protodevilun are sealed (codename: Polar Star). A Reaction Weapon was fired into and annihilated the deepest part of the cave. Even though the operation seemed to have just managed to succeed, the unit that rushed in became prisoners of war when the Reaction Weapon they used was used against them. In addition, Gamlin Kakizaki went missing in the fight with Gabiru, and Nekki Basara's voice was also silenced.
The sound-wave attack—what the Unified Forces considered to be their trump card in the 2090's—was called the "Minmei Defence". It seems that this name was assigned because the songs of Lynn Minmei were effective in the First Interstellar War. The enemy becomes confused when songs were broadcast at the same time as holograms of pop idols, including Wendy Rider, were being projected in the battle's sector of space. However, the upper echelons of the armed forces are overconfident in the operation's effectiveness, and neglect vigilance; which is tied together with their permitting the invasion of the Mardūk Forces.
An independent self-governing territory that looks out on Hudson Bay in the North America continent. The Macross and its refugees, having been refused by the Unified Government, were declared invited into the territory. However, trouble occurred immediately following that declaration when the the Omni-directional Barrier of the Macross sustained an attack by the Zentrādi Forces, ran wild, and the majority of the surrounding urban areas were annihilated. Even though they succeeded in repulsing the Zentrādi Forces, as a result the Ontario Autonomous Region refused to accept the Macross. In addition, the Macross came to receive orders to evacuate the Earth by the Unified Government.
The ship name of a Deneb class Space Heavy Cruiser that's attached to the 51st Super Long Range Emigrant Fleet—the Macross Galaxy Fleet. It is a capital ship for fleet defence, and a great number of identical ships were built and commissioned. However, they suffered a Vajra attack in the midst of their voyage, and the fleet was destroyed. Even though the surviving Kaitos sought rescue from the Macross Frontier Fleet, it suffered a direct hit from a Vajra aircraft carrier, and was instantly destroyed.
* Translator's note: the "(lower picture)" was originally placed after "GERWALK Fighter" in the original.
Its formal name is "Ground Effective Reinforcement of Winged Armament with Locomotive Knee-joint (winged ground-effective support armament with mobile knee-joint)". As one of the transformation modes of the Variable Fighter developed by the Unified Forces, it is midway between Fighter and Battroid modes. For that reason, it has the outward appearance of an "aircraft with manipulators and legs". Although the GERWALK form wasn't considered when the Valkyrie was first developed, the effectiveness of this form was discovered by chance during a test flight of the prototype (it escaped difficulty by hovering and gliding when the transformation mechanism failed and it was forced to make an emergency landing). Thereafter, the form came to be regularly adopted into Variable Fighters. Flying in GERWALK isn't more difficult than in Battroid, and this form—which excels in airframe stability in high-speed gliding—was used in various war situations. It was especially used on-purpose by the pilots that converted from fighter aircraft [to Valkyries].
An aircraft that the Unified Forces operationally deployed in about 2090. Its structure abandons the complex Valkyrie variable mechanism, and it was mainly used for such things as low-altitude guard missions. However, its war potential doesn't compare to that of a Valkyrie, and it doesn't seem to have been deployed in particularly large numbers.
A park created in the Macross 7 Fleet. Contrary to the name "Katasumi"1 the site area is large, in addition to a vast lawn and an abundance of planted trees and shrubs, an outdoor stage has been set up in a corner of the park.
1 Translator's note: 'corner' is the literal translation.
The Mayan Island legend of spirit-like beings is recited on the solitary south seas island. It's thought to be something close to the animism ideology, where divinity dwells in every single thing in this world. There are such Kaduns as "the Iron Kadun" and "the Fire Kadun". Also, some of the Kadun negatively influence humans, and the persons who violate taboos are thought to have been possessed by the "curse of a Kadun". In addition, it's said that the "Bird Man" (Eifos) will awaken and destroy this world when the "Kadun of Conflict"—arriving from the other side of the sea—blows the Wind of Ruin.
Livestock reared in the Environment Ship "Island 3"—attached to the Macross Frontier Fleet—which is in charge of agriculture and cattle breeding. They have an appearance like a cross-breed between a cow and a hippo, and even though they boast pretty large builds, their characters are gentle. Also, the deluxe ice cream that's made from the Kabagyu's milk is a famous product of Island 3.
