Cat-snake [D7]
Caption: [Cat-snake] As the Cat-snakes are usually motionless while coiled around the neck of the Zolan that they have a symbiotic relationship with, outsiders who don't know the situation see them as accessories. Nonetheless, situations where the Cat-snake moves can be observed if one looks closely, and occasionally they can be seen moving independently, separate from the Zolan.
キャットスネーキー

The general term for the creatures that have symbiotic relationships with the native people of planet Zola (Zolans), located in a remote region of the galaxy. The Cat-snakes and Zolans have an inseparable existence, and one Zolan and one Cat-snake form a pair and live together. Even though their appearance looks like a snake from Earth, they have a third eye in their forehead. In addition, their intelligence is high, and they can also exchange intentions with the Zolan.

Capital City [Plus]
Caption: [Capital City] A small island that floats in the mouth of the river is the showpiece sightseeing spot. Besides being lined with high-class villas, a concert hall (the Macross Commemorative Concert Hall/right picture) stands on the high ground. The concert hall is furnished with a dome that can open and close, and is known as a building that's boasted about in the galaxy.
キャピタル・シティ

A city constructed on planet Eden. The city referenced the scenery around San Fransisco on Earth, and was established centred on both banks of the mouth of a large river—interposed with a large cataract—and it produced an original space where the modern urban areas were arranged within Eden's characteristic nature. Its beauty is well known, and it is showered with attention as a sightseeing spot before and after 2040.

Galaxy Network [7, F]
ギャラクシー・ネットワーク

A super wide area information network that uses Fold Communication technology, and covers the interior of the galaxy. In the 2040's, Emigrant Fleets and Emigrant Planets are hooked-up in almost real-time, and information—such as culture, technology, fashion, and customs—are furnished by the network. The immense popularity that the Macross 7 Fleet's Fire Bomber and the Macross Galaxy Fleet's Sheryl Nome attained largely depended on the Galaxy Network. Even now, however, communication in completely real-time hasn't been achieved; and there is also the problem of information loss due to Fold Faults. For that reason, a group that started with Grace O'Conner schemed to establish a new communications network that used Fold Quartz. It aimed at ruling the galaxy by controlling the information network.

Gyararashi [7, 7Gin, D7]
Caption: [Gyararashi] "Gubaba"—who has a close existence with Mylene Flare Jīnasu (in charge of Fire Bomber's base and vocals)—is the Gyararashi that got lost from the group when it was attacked by a beast of prey on the 5th planet in the Pukirasesu Star System in 2036, and was protected by Mylene's father Max.
ギャララシ

The general term for the galactic long-hair mouse that forms groups and lives on a planet in the Pukirasesu Star System. The formal name of the species is: Space Born class / Anxious Rodentia / Guriputinasu family / uncertain relationship / Hariguriputinasu species subspecies Gyararashi. They have sympathetic abilities, and in addition to talking with the mind with their owner, the individuals that are raised as pets can also sound out and guess the location of their owner when they are in separate places.

QF-3000E [M]
Caption: [QF-3000E] Even though the QF-3000 was superior to the VF in manoeuvrability and on the cost side, as a result of it heading toward the combat sector in front of the VF squadrons, it remained shouldering the role of support aircraft—such as acting as forerunner and confining [enemy] aircraft.
QF-3000E

An airframe in the Unified Forces unmanned fighter aircraft series named "Ghost". It was used in the First Interstellar War with the Zentrādi Forces, and is a Northrom Co. unmanned aerospace fighter-bomber. As an airframe that's far larger than the QF-2200 series,1 it is equipped with a small thermonuclear reaction engine—implemented and enabling the Ghost to be active in all regimes, both inside and outside of the atmosphere.2 With it, there wasn't a concern that pilots would be wasted. And even though it was expected to be the main force against the Zentrādi Forces from the fact that it enabled manoeuvrability that exceeded the limits of manned fighter aircraft, it wasn't able to manifest the anticipated amount of military results due to insufficient AI performance. However, the influence it had on the tactical ideology of the Unified Forces was extremely large, and the development of unmanned aircraft was continued.3

Translator's notes:
1 errata. Originally was: "Even though it has an airframe that's far smaller than the QF-2200 series, ..."
2 in the original edition, it was: "Even though it has an airframe that is far smaller than the QF-2200 series and is an aircraft that extends upon the hypersonic lifting body unmanned fighter bomber "Super Bird" aircraft series, it was equipped with a small thermonuclear engine—implemented and enabling the Ghost to be active in all areas, both inside and outside of the atmosphere."
3 line added in the revised edition.

QF-2200D-A1 [Zero]
Caption: [QF-2200D-A] The QF-2200D-A is a small, difficult-to-detect, lightweight aircraft that takes stealthiness into account. It was also put into the battle with the Anti Unification Alliance in the Mayan Island area.
QF-2200D-A

The initial Ghost model was due to a joint development of Northrom and Itsutsubishi. The Unified Forces unmanned stealth fighter aircraft model was put into combat during the Unification War. The airframe, which uses forward-swept wings, takes stealthiness into consideration and shape management has been applied to it by flattening the airframe as thinly as possible. It's an aircraft who's design was produced with conventional technology and hardly uses any OTM—and this aircraft, which is equipped with a sensor in the nose, is called the A type.2

Translator's notes:
1 originally was "QF-2001".
2 originally was: "It's an aircraft who's design was produced with conventional technology and hardly uses any OTM, and it is smaller in comparison to the "Super Bird" unmanned fighter-bomber series."

QF-2200D-B* [Zero]
Caption [appears at the top of the reverse side]: [QF-2200D-B] A QF-2200D-B that was put to use as the additional booster of a heavily armed VF-0S. By using the Ghost's variable nozzle, the VF-0S acquired even more tricky manoeuvrability, and was called the "Special-Attack Assault Specification".
QF-2200D-B

The initial model Ghost was due to a joint development of Northrom and Itsutsubishi. The small, lightweight, highly-manoeuvrable unmanned stealth reconnaissance craft began being mass produced from 2002. The Unified Forces, who had exhausted its skilled pilots in the confusion of the early days of the Unification War, put the QF-2200D-B on the front lines in large number; such as deploying it to the carrier Asuka and using it in combat with the Anti Unification Alliance. Even though it was developed with the main objective of armed reconnaissance at high speed at comparatively low altitude, because it exhibited manoeuvrability that exceeded the limits of manned aircraft with an instantaneous maximum of more than 25 G, the QF-2200D-B clearly exhibited a fighting capability greater than that of the main fighter aircraft in dogfights. In addition, a lot of variations existed in the QF-2200D series—such as the low-speed, long-range reconnaissance model that was equipped with a low fuel consumption turbo-fan jet; and the high-altitude reconnaissance model that was equipped with a turbofan/ram jet.

* Translator's note: originally was "QF-2200D"

QF-4000 [F]
Caption: [QF-4000] The "Judah System", which improves the X-9's artificial intelligence, is sealed into the 3 QF-4000 that are mainly used in the roles of guarding the RVF-25 while it patrols and gathering intelligence on the target objects. Each of those QF-4000—which entered completely autonomous mobile states when that system was opened—demonstrated threatening combat abilities.
QF-4000

A Ghost that was trial deployed to the Macross Frontier Fleet's Civilian Military Provider S.M.S. They attempted to make the aircraft resistant to ECM by equipping the General Galaxy Co. AIF-7S with a newly developed Fold Communication guidance system by the L.A.I Co.

Gilliam Angreat [Other]
Caption: [Gilliam Angreat] He also served as a coaching instructor of the Ravens, and had the nickname: the "Demon Teacher".
ギリアム・アングレート

The commander of the 727th Independent Squadron VF-X Ravens, founded by the Unified Government. His rank is Major. He became acquainted with the reality of the despotism of Lactence, one of the powers within the Unified Government—which he already harboured suspicions of—defected from the Unified Forces, and cooperated with Vinderance.

Kirutora Keruēru [M]
Caption: [Kirutora Keruēru] Its huge hull, which boasts a total length in the 3,000 m class, is ranked next to the Noputi Baganisu. A great number of mobile weapons—such as Nūjaderu-Gā, Rigādo, and [Jināru] Air-battle Pods—are loaded into the ship.
キルトラ・ケルエール

The ship has been used from the initial stage of the Fragmentation War of the Protoculture's Galactic Empire. It is the Zentrādi's Planetary Landing Assault Ship. Its missions were mainly the transport of replenishment materials to the front line, and depositing weapons and military personnel on hostile planets. Even though the firepower of the warship itself was poor, the solidity of its excessive armour—which compensates for its [lack of] firepower—has an established reputation, and it is appraised as one of the best Zentrādi ships.

Galactic Whale [D7]
Caption: [Galactic Whale] As the Galactic Whales draw large sums of money in black-market transactions, a poaching group that aims at the Galactic Whales appears at the time that the whales seasonally migrate to the sector in the vicinity of the planet Zola, and they started intense offence and defence with the whales.
銀河クジラ

They are enigmatic, giant life-forms that make a seasonal migration to the sector in the vicinity of planet Zola once a year. Even though the Galactic Scientific Society considered them, after an ecological inspection, to be energy bodies composed of interstellar material—which had a botanical structure and didn't have an independent will—it turns out that they have a will, as a particularly huge white Galactic Whale in that group reacted to Basara's songs and sang with him.

Galactic Cosmos [7Gin]
Caption: [Galactic Cosmos] The seeds of the Galactic Cosmos budded after more than 2,000 years due to the Song Energy of Fire Bomber's Nekki Basara and Emilia Jīnasu—who had been ascetically practicing on the frontier planet.
銀河コスモス

A plant that blooms on a frontier planet where the plants once grew thickly. Even though the form of the Galactic Cosmos was not seen after the frontier planet become cold, the young boy Pedro—who lives on the planet—had its seeds, which were mementos of his father.

Gala-spo [7]
Caption: [Gala-spo] Concerning the incidents where the living-body energy of the City 7 citizens was snatched away, Gala-spo reported that it was the actions of the vampires. The real criminals in the incidents were the manoeuvring soldiers of the Varōta Forces that were sent in to gather up and investigate Spiritia.
銀スポ

The abbreviation of the entertainer gossip magazine "Galaxy Sports", which is famous for its gossip news stories. Its pages were enlivened with scandal articles concerning Basara that were successively fabricated by featured reporter Janet.

Quadoran-Kiruka [7Gin]
Caption: [Quadoran-Kiruka] Original enhancements appear to have been applied to the Quadoran-Kiruka, such as an increase in output, and additional brightly-coloured smokescreen spouting mechanisms.
クァドラン・キルカ

A scarce craft, even in the Quadoran series. It unites heavy armaments and high-manoeuvrability at a high level. As the favourite aircraft of Emilia Jīnasu—the 5th daughter of husband and wife Max and Miria—it fought against the Protodevilun with Nekki Basara's Fire Valkyrie on the frontier planet.

Quadoran-Nona [Other]
クァドラン・ノナ

A simplification of the Quadoran-Rō—a battle-suit that chose its rider—mass-produced for the average soldier. Besides the camera eye, which has become a 2-lens type, changes such as reducing the two back missile pods to a single unit were added to it.

Quadoran-Rea [F]
Caption: [Quadoran-Rea] Pixy Squadron in the Macross Frontier Fleet's Civilian Military Provider S.M.S. operates this battle-suit. The Quadoran-Rea's manoeuvrability wasn't outdone by the latest model VF-25.
クァドラン・レア

A battle-suit by General Galaxy Co. after the First Interstellar War that is a redesign and improvement of the Quadoran-Rō. The back is equipped with a mobile beam gun, and the tri-gun arm pulse guns have also been enhanced. In addition, it has been revamped in order to also be piloted by male Zentrādi without a problem.

Quadoran-Rō [M, 7]
Caption: [Quadoran-Rō] The favourite aircraft of Aerial Lead Private First Class Miria Farina, who had the nickname "Ace Miria", it developed sublime urban combat with the VF-1A of Maximilian Jīnasu, the genius pilot of the Unified Forces.
クァドラン・ロー

A battle-suit developed for the female officers of the Zentrādi Forces. It has a unique shape where there isn't a torso, and the chest directly connects to the legs. Armaments, such as laser machine-guns, are added to the chest and arms, and it boasts a high-manoeuvrability similar to the [Jināru] Air-battle Pod.
