Artificial Intelligence [Zero, M, Plus, F]
人工知能

AI (Artificial Intelligence). It was implemented as part of such things as the Macross's central computer system and the unmanned Ghosts, as computers that have an intelligence similar to mankind. In addition, the development of the "Sharon Type AI" was advanced in order to create a true artificial intelligence that has an independent personality and emotions. However, the dangers of that were exposed in the "Sharon Apple Insident*". Thereafter, the military conversion route of Artificial Intelligence was reviewed, and limitations were installed into their operation. However, the Macross Galaxy Fleet utilized the AIF-9V Ghost [without limits on their AI], and used them in battle with the Macross Frontier Fleet.

Nekki Basara, who produced abnormalities in the Spiritia meters of the Varōta Forces with his singing, was marked with the Spiritia abnormality code "ツェー [tse]".*

* Translator's note: going by the translation, it's unclear if "tse" is only the phonetic reading of the code, or if it is the Cyrillic letter Ц [tse] itself.

Interstellar Republic [M, 7]
Caption: [Interstellar Republic ] Due to the collapse of the Protoculture, hardly any information on the Stellar Republic was passed on. For that reason, humans have no choice but to analogize part of it from the Protoculture ruins that are scattered in various places of the galaxy.
星間共和国

A galactic-scale interstellar nation was established by the Protoculture—whose peak prosperity was before the birth of mankind—in roughly the 500,000 BCE era of human time. Even though they possessed technology that far surpassed that of the present human race, in the end they diverged into two powers and entered into a state of war (the Galactic Empire Fragmentation War)1. The Zentrādi were developed as the proxy weapons of the Protoculture in those circumstances. However, the republic declined starting with the penetration of energy life-forms from the sub-universe that possessed the Living Body Armament "Ehvil Series", which surpassed the Zentrādi in capability. Although the Protoculture used the abilities of the Anima Spiritia to seal the Protodevilun on the fourth planet of the Varōta star system, the republic, which had suffered considerable damage, entered a state of collapse. The small quantity of surviving Protoculture were exterminated by the Zentrādi, who still continued to wage war2.

Translator's notes:

2 originally was: "In addition, the small quantity of ..."
