A member of the "Jamming Birds" Civilian Cooperative Unit that was formed for Anti-Protodevilun combat. He rode the two-seater VF-11D Thunderbolt, focusing himself on singing. However, perhaps because of his fear of the battlefield, Tachiwani wasn't able to land the hoped for military gains.
One of the twin-hulled space carriers* that belonged to the Macross Galaxy Fleet. The Darfim appealed to the Macross Frontier Fleet for relief when the Galaxy Fleet was attacked by the Vajra, and it escaped from its predicament due to the efforts of S.M.S.
* Translator's note: errata. Originally was: "One of the Deneb Class Cruisers."
A high school on planet Eden. It is the alma mater of Isamu Dyson, who served as the test pilot of the new YF-19 Variable Fighter. When he attended the school he called himself "the hooligan of Dalmatian High". In addition, Bobby Margot—the Macross Quarter's helmsman—also appears to have graduated from Dalmatian High School.
A special forces unit that existed from 2014–2030 AD, and was attached to the Unified Forces Intelligence Division. They were in charge of missions that were difficult for the regular armed forces to deal with targeting the Zentrādi who didn't comply with the Unified Government and formed armed groups on frontier planets. The unit was composed of husband and wife Maximilian Jīnasu and Miria Farīna Jīnasu—before they participated in the Macross 7 Fleet—and the Zentrādi girl Moaramia Jifon, who they raised as an adopted child.

A bōsōzoku group in the Macross 7 Fleet. The group is composed only of women, such as Collet, Mike, Berman, and Siam—not to mention the leader Rex. They were proud of their reckless driving, and were hostile to Fire Bomber as they thought that such things as singing are signs of weakness. However, after being deeply moved by Nekki Basara's songs, they adopted "Planet Dance" as the team's theme song.
The military organization maintained by the globally consolidated "Earth Unified Government", which was created to exceed the barriers of humanity, religion, ideology, and so on. Ground, sea, and air forces where established in 2001, and a space force was added in 2005. Even though it was the main armed forces in the 2001–2008 Unification War and the 2009–2010 First Interstellar War, it was reorganized after the war to accompany the founding of the New Unified Government. With the dawn of the era of Space Emigration, the Earth Unified Forces began escorting the Emigrant Fleets and maintaining security on the Emigrant Planets.
The military organization maintained by the Earth Unified Government, which was founded in 2001. Even though they are the keystone to the Earth's defence, the Unified Forces in the 2090's trusted too much in the "Minmei Attack", and that chink in their defences allowed the Mardūk Forces to invade.
A woman recruited as a member of the "Jamming Birds" civilian cooperative unit that was formed by the Unified Forces who were pleased with Sound Force's military gains. She is a fan of Lynn Minmei and she specializes in the piano. Ripple boarded the two-seater VF-11D Thunderbolt and was deployed in the Anti Protodevilun Campaign. However, she couldn't generate Song Energy on par with that of Sound Force, and just like the other Jamming Birds members, Ripple wasn't successful at landing any military gains.
An artillery-type space warship retained by the Zentrādi Forces. In the First Interstellar War, a partly damaged Medium Gunship fell to Earth. It was left unnoticed because it had settled in a mountainous region, but was restored through the efforts of the Kamujin clan—who opposed the New Unified Government—and was used to attack Macross City.
The man who served as the representative of the city that was born on South Ataria Island, where the construction of the Macross progressed. He was later also the town chairman in the city that was rebuilt inside the Macross after it was swallowed up in the Macross's Space Fold. He favoured Lynn Minmei, and recommended her for the "Miss Macross Contest."
The nickname given to Ranka Lee, who played the role of Mao Nome in the movie "Bird Man -Tori no Hito-", and was noticed for the "Aimo–Bird Man" song in the film. That nickname even reached the frontier areas, and it's said that there were even some soldiers who choked back tears because they couldn't go to her first live performance. In addition, Ranka was in the limelight for being touted as "the present-day Lynn Minmei" in the wake of the suppression of the rebellion on Gaul 4.
The name of the Macross before it fell to Earth, when it was operated as a Meltrandi Forces warship. With the arrival of this ship, the human race became aware of the existence of aliens, and while benefiting from the Macross's Over Technology, the human race experienced the ordeal of the Unification War.
An ace Anti Unification Alliance pilot who participated in the war over Mayan Island. Ivanov was a mercenary who roamed from battlefield to battlefield, and was Roy Fokker's superior officer during his time as a Unified Forces test pilot. Incidentally, he was called "Daisy Ivanov" among his fellow pilots because he put the symbol of a yellow flower on his Valkyrie.
A pilot assigned to the reborn Diamond Force as a subordinate of Gamlin Kizaki. His call sign is D2. He has a hot-blooded personality, and complained about their mission to defend City 7 at the beginning of his assignment to the squadron.
An air-defence Destroid that was deployed by the Unified Forces in the 2090's. It is an improved type of Defender, and the Liquid-cooled High-speed Automatic Cannon Turrets on both arms were changed to Rail Guns. Also, movement rollers and plates for affixing the Destroid to the ground were added to the legs.
A decisive battle weapon that is also referred to as a "Space Fold Bomb". The weapon is the application of Space Fold Technology to munition. After detonation, it forces objects within the affected area to Space Fold. One was used when there was a mass-outbreak of Vajra in the Macross Frontier Fleet, and Island 3 and all the Vajra within it were swept away by the weapon. In addition to the large stationary type, there are also versions that can be mounted in Gun Pod ammunition and missile warheads, and were used in the Anti Vajra Campaign.
A missile equipped with a Dimension Eater (a Space-Fold Bomb). Its operability was remarkably improved over that of the stationary Dimension Eater. Dimension Cutters were used as a trump card for the Macross Frontier Fleet, which attempted to invade the Vajra Homeworld. Dimension Cutters were mainly loaded onto the VF-171EX Nightmare Plus EX.
A Miclonized Zentrādi who served as the leader of the anti-government organization "Black Rainbow", which was active behind the scenes in the 2050's. He put the pedal to the metal in a black Pheyos Valkyrie, and had the nickname "the Kill-all Wizard"* because he exhibited a merciless fighting style on the battlefield. [Source: Macross VF-X2]
* Translator's note: literally "the All Kill Wizard".
Destroids are humanoid armaments that originated in a proposal by the Unified Forces (mainly the Unified Ground Forces) after alien Over Technology was obtained, and were developed for the direct defence of strongholds. In contrast to the VFs—which were developed by the Unified Air Force and Naval Forces, introduced the transformation mechanism, and valued all-purposefulness—the Destroids, whose main point was increased firepower, were developed in diverse variations according to a hypothesized war situation. Although the development of the Destroids gradually died out due to the pressure of making the VFs have even higher performance, a subspecies of the Destroids was created called the VB-6, which incorporated a variable mechanism.
A news man belonging to the "SNN" TV station. Dennis is a well-known war photographer, and he told his colleague Hibiki Kanzaki—who is only after scandals—his mental attitude as a cameraman.
A member of the New Unified Forces 33rd Marine Corps stationed on the planet Gaul 4. He opposes Earth's culture, and foments a rebellion to regain the former glory of the Zentrādi. However, Temujin was shot down at the end of a one-on-one fight with Aruto Saotome, and the rebellion ended in failure.
A multipurpose concert auditorium built within Island 1, one of the ships in the Macross Frontier Fleet. Tenkūmon was the concert venue for Sheryl Nome, who visited the Frontier Fleet as part of her Galaxy Tour. On top of that, it was also the concert venue for Ranka Lee's first live performance—when she had been thrust into the limelight as the "Super Dimensional Cinderella".
One of the songs by the songstress Lynn Minmei, who led the way to the end of the First Interstellar War. The song is a masterpiece that is loaded with lyrics from a young woman's heart that Minmei respectfully sings.
The name of the West Point class Support Mothership that belonged to the Macross 7 Fleet. It has practice fields for Variable Fighters inside the ship, and is used as a place for training new recruits and bringing new VFs to maturity. However, the ship itself doesn't have any fighting abilities, and the Escort Carrier Aberdeen is usually docked to it.
A medal awarded by the Unified Forces to the soldiers who have made outstanding military gains. Taki Rothman, Marcos Meyer, Justin Borgnine, and Hikaru Ichijō are noted as recipients of the Titanium Medal.
The general term for the global dispute that continued from May 2001* to Dec. 2008. Humankind had no doubt whatsoever that aliens exist, and wars suddenly broke out between the Unified Government—aiming at the unification of the whole world—and the Anti Unification Alliance, who opposed that. The intensifying conflict produced a lot of victims; not only military related personnel, but also civilians. Various vague opinions exist on such things as the detailed records of the local fighting and the period of the war, and there are many events that were sealed away and erased from the records. There also appears to have been battles between similar weapons that had OTM added to them.
