The Earth Unified Force's extra-large, semi-submersible aircraft carrier. Even though it was originally planned to be operated on the seas, the Prometheus was connected to the SDF-1 Macross's port docking module as an emergency measure, and was used as the VF-1 Valkyrie's operations mothership.
The Unified Force's nuclear-powered stealth aircraft carrier. It wasn't only used as the mothership for the VF-0 combat test operations in the VF-0 Development Project, but also brought about a hard-fought battle with the Anti Unification Alliance over the alien relic "Eiphos".
A Unified Force's stealth combat carrier. They formed the emigrant fleets in the 2040's, such as the Macross 7 Fleet. In addition, the deployment of identical ships is confirmed in such places as the defensive armada of the Macross Frontier Fleet—voyaging at the end of the 2050's.
The "Galactic Fairy" Sheryl's galaxy crossing tour. In addition, the concert in the Macross Frontier Fleet—the final performance of the tour—was forced to stop due to a Vajra attack. As a matter of fact, as the Macross Frontier Fleet had prepared for a Vajra attack, it was the optimum fleet for Grace O'Conner and the Macross Galaxy Fleet leadership to execute their "Operation Carnival" strategy in.
One of the Over Technologies that was discovered in the ASS-1. A similar conversion system was also detected in the "Eiphos" alien relic.
A Fold Fault that interferes in the physical dimension. The Vajra Queen has the ability to control this Dimensional Fault. Grace O'Conner—having integrated with the Queen—artificially produced it, and used it for offence and defence in the decisive battle with the Macross Frontier Fleet.
A global environment and ecosystem regeneration project that was implemented by the New Unified Government and the Unified Forces. The global environment—having been destroyed and contaminated in the last stage of the First Interstellar War—was greatly improved by this plan, which made good use of extensive materials and various kinds of OTM.*
*Translator's note: part of the last line was cut off in the original edition. It was later indicated to be: "(...) was greatly improved by this plan, which freely used various kinds of OTM."
* Translator's note: originally was "The City 7, where about ..."
The emigrant residential section of the "Macross 7", the No.7 New Macross class Emigrant Ship. It is equipped with a dome-shaped defensive shell that can open and close. The mayor is Maria Farīna Jīnasu. The Stealth Attack Carrier Battle 7—the combat section—connects through the intermediary of the City 7's energy plant.
The City 7 police organization. They possess a special unit—which has snipers and the "Patoroid" Special Variable Mechanism—and are in charge of maintaining public order in peacetime.
The business district within Island 1, which one could say is the main island of the Macross Frontier Fleet. In addition to tenant buildings such as 199 in the central part of of the district—using Japan's Shibuya as a motif—there is the Chinese Restaurant "Nyan-Nyan". The underground shopping centre consists of Deep Akihabara (Deep Akiba).
The earliest Destroid in the Unified Forces. It is treated as one of the experimental models of the ADR-04. The Destroid has features that are midway between the Tomahawk and the Defender.
A Destroid in the New Unified Forces. Even though it is a redesign of the Cheyenne and took over the Cheyenne's outward appearance roughly unchanged, parts were changed—including such things as exchanging the engine for a thermonuclear reactor and modernizing the armaments.* They were deployed for combat within the Islands of the Macross Frontier Fleet, and for fleet air defence.
* Translator's note: the original edition indicated in the errata section that the first part (originally was: "Parts were changed with the redesigned Destroid.") was in error, and the correct line is: "It's a New Unified Forces Destroid. Parts were changed with the redesign of the Cheyenne."

A Spatial-Temporal Resonance System developed by Manfret Brando, the president and representative director of the Critical Path Corporation. It is radio wave jamming equipment that was put to use and developed from the latest transmission equipment—using a hyperspace resonance crystalline lens. It directly interferes in the equipment by inducing spatial-temporal resonance in the computer. When used, a peculiar music streams from it, and guided ordinance is nullified. (Source: Macross VF-X2)
A Musical Combat Unit formed as an anti-Protodevilun fighting force. After formation via test case Nekki Basara in "Project M"—the Macross 7 Fleet's Unified Forces' absolutely secret project—the six initial members were selected by audition. The Jamming Birds differed from Sound Force: when they sortied in the two-seater VF-11D Kai, they didn't control the VF and devoted themselves solely to singing. In the Protodevilun War, their Song Energy was weak and they couldn't land military gains of even minor significance.
The Sharon Apple concert tour that held public performances in various places in the galaxy. The performance on Emigrant Planet Eden in the Groomsbridge star system became the last public performance.*
* Translator's note: originally was: "The last public performance of the tour was held on Emigrant Planet Eden in the Groomsbridge star system".
The Zentrādi Forces two-seater High-manoeuvrability Heavy Attack Craft. It was operated as one corner of the Zentrādi's main spaceflight armaments.
Heavy Quantum Beams were used in such places as the main gun of the SDF-1 Macross and the Noputi Baganisu Class, as well as the Heavy Quantum Reaction Guns of the Battle 7, Battle Frontier, and the Macross Quarter. In the latter half of the 2050's, Heavy Quantum Beam specification weapons became standard equipment for such Valkyries as the VF-27 and the VF-171EX.
Special weapons of the Zentrādi Forces that interfere with and nullify Gravity Control Systems. They were laid under Sara Base on Mars by Kamujin Kuravushera's forces and prevented the movements of the Macross, which had stopped by that base.
One of the Over Technology [systems] that was built into the Macross. Not only is it able to float the giant structure with an operational inertial weight of 18 million t, it also enabled gravity environments within the ship. Although it was lost due to problems when the Macross first took off, it later became possible for the crew to produce equivalent components.
