A café in the San Francisco area of the Frontier Fleet's Island 1. The shop's name is thought to have been taken from Lynn Minmei's hit song "Silver Moon, Red Moon".* The students of Mihoshi Academy frequently come and go to it as it's a place where youths rest and refresh.
* Translator's note: originally was: "The shop's name seems to be from Lynn Minmei's hit song "Silver Moon, Red Moon"."
The Varōta Forces new type of space carrier. The 1,000 m super-class large-scale warship—equipped with about 200 Variable Fighters—was released to the front lines in the latter period of the conflict with the Macross 7 Fleet.
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.

The enterprise was established in 2012, and is an amalgamation of such enterprises as the aircraft development divisions of the Nova, Shinnakasu Heavy Industry, and Stonewell Bellcom companies. Starting with the VF-5000, and after releasing the Unified Forces VF-11 main fighter in the 2030's, Shinsei Industry presented the YF-19 prototype in the Unified Space Forces Next Main Variable Fighter (AVF) Adoption Competition "Project Super Nova". The YF-19 won the adoption competition at the end of some twists and turns, and it was officially adopted as the VF-19 Excalibur. Thereafter, Shinsei Industry also led the development of the principal VFs, such as being engaged in the development of the YF-24 and the VF-25.
Earth's new Unified Government was founded in May, 2010, after the conclusion of the First Interstellar War. With Chief Executive Bruno J. Global playing a leading role, it pressed forward on such things as the Earth's reconstruction, coexistence with the Zentrādi, and the emigration plan for humankind.
A strategy that was devised by Luca Angeloni of the Civilian Military Provider S.M.S. Ranka Lee was used as a decoy, and after annihilating the Vajra that her songs had attracted into Island 3, the fleet withdrew in a super long-range space fold.
A ceremony to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the First Interstellar War's conclusion, held in Macross City on Earth. Sharon Apple, at the request of the Earth Unified Headquarters, held a concert in the ceremony. After that, Sharon came to hijack the SDF-1 Macross.
The reorganized Unified Forces armed services that accompanied the development of the "Humankind Dissemination Plan". They assumed the duties of guarding Emigrant Fleets, defending Emigrant Planets, and so on.
The exception articles enable the use of Reaction Weapons, which has been suspended due to political issues, as the large-scale emigration project progresses. The President of Macross Frontier applied those exception articles and used Reaction Weapons in its fight with the Vajra.
The general term for the third generation extra-large Emigrant Ships, which were commissioned in the 2030's. These ships, which accumulated the long-term voyaging know-how from the operation of the Macross and Megaroad classes, separate into a Battle warship (the combat section), and a City part (the residential section).* As a result, the safety of the citizens during combat has risen.* In addition, the residential section has increased in size.*
* Translator's note: all 3 lines were originally: "The ships, which accumulated the long-term voyaging know-how from the operation of the Macross and Megaroad classes, are composed of a city part (the residential section), the Battle class (the combat block), and a power plant part, which is the docking section."
The project—started in 2012—has such goals as the search for and migration to planets that the human race can reside on, and the continuation and spread of the species through that search and migration. It is often called the "Galactic Dissemination Plan". Long-range and close-range Emigrant Fleets were organized, and humankind spread widely outside of the Solar System.
The theory advocated by Doctor Hasford, the authority on Protoculture research. The content of the hypothesis was "mankind's evolution was rapidly accelerated due to the interference of aliens (= ancient Protoculture), who came from outer space". This theory delivered a great shock to the academic world at the time, and while it gave birth to fervent supporters, there were also people who considered it to be a heretical idea.
The standard battleship of the Zentrādi Forces. This ship—loaded with a great number of small Mobile Weapons, in addition to being equipped with beam guns and missile launchers in various places—tormented the Unified Forces as the core of the Bodoru Main Fleet in the First Interstellar War.
A female pilot in the 727th Independent Squadron VF-X Ravens that was founded by the Unified Government. Her rank is Captain. Although she has great piloting skills and a beautiful appearance, she has many troubles—her nickname is "stubborn tomboy", due to having repeatedly changed assignments. (Source: Macross VF-X2)
The Unified Forces' Next Main Variable Fighter Development Project. The competition was held on Planet Eden, and even though the YF-19 and YF-21 competed ruthlessly over which would be adopted, the completion of the Ghost X-9 unmanned fighter aircraft was the reason why the project was suspended. The project was resumed after the Sharon Apple Insident*, and the YF-19 was adopted.

A live concert that became the gateway to success for major bands. The legendary band Fire Bomber also participated in it before their debut.
Enhancement equipment for the Variable Fighters (VF). As equipment that is used to improve such things as a VF's manoeuvrability, combat endurance time, and firepower, they are composed of external units that have functions such as additional boosters (FAST Packs), high-manoeuvrability verniers, conformal tanks, and an increase in the VF's weapons. The units, which are mainly arranged on the VF's torso, arms and legs, don't interfere with the transformation—they are even able to be purged in any circumstance. They may also be referred to as "Super Pack", or "FAST Pack" from the name of the booster unit.
The alias for a VF-1 Valkyrie that's equipped with Super Parts. It is also called a "FAST Pack equipped Valkyrie", from the "FAST Pack" name of the booster unit—the core of the equipment. It became the main aircraft of the VF units in the last stage of the First Interstellar War, and they landed great military gains in the fight with the Bodoru Main Fleet.
The Fold Booster uses Fold Quartz, which gives it the ability to break through Fold Faults—which are usually impossible to pass through. It was developed by L.A.I.
The New Unified Forces' space cruiser. In the 2050's, they are operated as the main military vessel. Their comprehensive performance and such things as firepower and stealthiness are greatly improved over the Stealth Frigate—the main military vessel until the cruiser's introduction.
The Unified Forces' Space Destroyer. The ship excels at high speed and stealth performance. Variants of this main space warship exist, such as the Early-Warning type, the Reconnaissance model, and the Zentran specification ships—operated by the Macross 5 Fleet. In addition, they were continuously mass-produced by the New Unified Forces in the 2050's, and were operated in the escort armada of such things as the Emigrant Fleets.
One of the towns on the Earth that revived after the First Interstellar War. Lynn Minmei held a tour concert in the town's outdoor theatre.
The nickname of a VF-1 equipped with firepower enhanced Super Parts. One of the dorsal micro missile pods is exchanged for a beam turret.
A unique projectile for the VF-19 Kai's Launcher Pod. It pierces into and is fixed to the armour of the target with a filler, and the opponent is made to listen directly to sounds from the speaker.
The energy that is the basis of such things as vitality and spirit. It is assumed that we connect at a subconscious level to the "Sub-Universe", a higher dimensional energy space that is filled with Spiritia. The energy of the "Sub-Universe" flows in us by doing such things as singing and musical performances with instruments—and there are situations where it has been recognized that the the Spiritia has been amplified. 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.
A special Varōta device that absorbs Spiritia from human beings. It is standard equipment in such things as their VFs, and people who had their Spiritia absorbed exhibited symptoms such as spiritlessness.
A plan designed by the Protodevilun leader Geperunicchi to secure a permanent Spiritia supply source. The capture of City 7 was planned from the the beginning in a project that would restrict humans, namely the people with the ability to restore their Spiritia—what can be called the Protodevilun's food—to a planet where escape was impossible, and create a Spiritia regeneration cycle.
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.
