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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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."
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"
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
The influential prize awarded for such things as journalism. Janet Johnson, who was once the feature reporter of the gossip paper "Gala-spo", resigned in order to become a writer who reports the truth, and chose the free road with an eye on winning this prize.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
