A young man who was selected to be a pilot in the Unified Forces 727th Independent Squadron "VF-X Ravens". He has ace-class skills. On the other hand, he has emotionally immature aspects and undertakes a lot of selfish actions, such as taking arbitrary actions without consulting his superiors. He also holds a mixture of envy and jealousy toward his colleague Aegis Fokker. Shun later decided to battle it out with Aegis, who had turned against the armed forces. [Source: Macross VF-X2]
A Zentrādi enka singer who belongs to the "Vector Promotion" entertainment production company in the Macross Frontier Fleet. He is still a fledgling singer who is rising in popularity. However, he is a man with a great deal of magnanimity, such as encouraging Ranka Lee when she showed anxiety about her abilities as a singer.
A Unified Forces military physician belonging to the Macross 7 Fleet. His real name is Gadget M. Chiba. He is an enthusiastic fan of Lynn Minmei, and he investigated and analyzed her achievements in the First Interstellar War and independently formulated the Song Energy Theory (Sound Energy Theory). Dr. Chiba developed the Sound Weapons that were effective against the Protodevilun.
A renowned cultural anthropologist who argued the Humankind Protoculture Interference hypothesis.* He is also Aries Turner's former teacher. Dr. Hasford was willing to sacrifice himself to prove his theory, and did not hesitate to violate the taboos of Mayan island, where legends of the Protoculture survive. On top of that, Dr. Hasford collaborated with the Anti Unification Alliance to obtain Protoculture relics (the AFOS), and turned Mayan Island into a battlefield.
* Translator's note: "Humankind" added in the revised ed.
The woman who served as the fleet leader of the 117th Research Fleet, and was the lead figure in Protoculture research. She came from Mayan Island, her real name is Mao Nome, and she is also Sheryl Nome's real grandmother. Even though Dr. Mao conducted research related to the Vajra and the V-type Infectious Disease with the cooperation of colleagues Ranshe Mei and Grace O'Conner, Dr. Mao went missing when the Vajra attacked the research fleet.
A military physician belonging to the Unified Forces New Edwards Air Force Base. At the behest of base commander Millard Johnson, Dr. Worth secretly examined Guld Goa Bowman, who had caused an inexplicable accident during military exercises. However, the results were shredded by Millard, and weren't revealed.
A special clause that accompanies the S.M.S. enlistment contract. When the Macross Frontier government—to which S.M.S. has signed a contract with—enters a war or a situation based on war, the S.M.S. unit members lose their rights to veto their orders and to retire from the squadron until it's recognized that the status quo has been restored.
A Unified Forces pilot who plays a part in the "Diamond Force" special forces squadron in the Macross 7 Fleet. During the first battle with the Varōta Forces, Docker's Spiritia was absorbed and he fell into a coma. However, he was rehabilitated by the Sound Therapy devised by Dr. Chiba. Docker later fought against the Protodevilun as the leader of the new "Emerald Force" squadron.
The Varōta Forces' Space Warship that Gigiru boarded—its nickname was "Gigiru's ship". It has a hull one size larger than that of the Standard Battle Line Battleship, and its specialty is artillery battles that make full use of the guns that each part of the ship are furnished with. The Assault Ship also functions as a mothership to the Fz-109 Erugāzorun.
A popular song that represents Fire Bomber. The original song was completed when Nekki Basara was very young, and he has been spotted singing it while wandering around. On top of that, this song became well known through the Galaxy Network as Fire Bomber's popularity increased—Macross Frontier Fleet's Ozuma Lee also used it as the code name for a tactical manoeuvre.
A heavily equipped bombardment Destroid that was deployed in Macross City in the 2090's as the successor to the Tomahawk. Equipped with Long-Range Beam Cannons on both shoulders and Beam Cannons and Rail Guns on both arms, it unleashed great firepower.
One of Fire Bomber's representative songs. It was created when the battles with the Protodevilun intensified, and was actively sung on the battlefield. "Try Again" has an up-tempo melody similar to "Power To The Dream", which was composed around the same time. The song is known as the one that Ivano Geperunicchi—the leader of the Protodevilun—sang with Basara when Geperunicchi was reborn as a Spiritia-regenerating race.
One of the cities that was constructed on Earth while the reconstruction after the conclusion of the First Interstellar War was continuing. Zentrādi who had accepted Earth's culture accounted for more than half of the entire population, and a Miclone Device was also installed in the city. For that reason, the city was targeted by Kamujin—who rose in revolt against the Unified Government—and he stole that Miclone Device.
A staff officer in the Lost Zentrādi Fleet (the Kurore Fleet) that the Macross 7 Fleet encountered. She is deeply trusted by Fleet Commander Kurore for her calm judgment—such as concluding that Maximilian Jīnasu and Miria Farīna Jīnasu are dangerous when she sees them kiss, and deciding to isolate them. On the other hand, she also has unexpected aspects, such as going wild with excitement when she hears Basara Nekki's songs.
* Translator's note: "Macross" changes to "SDF-1 Macross" in the revised ed.
The Transformation is one of the distinctive features of the combat vessel part of the Emigrant Ships. It refers to the ability to transform from a military vessel to the Storming Attack form, and vice versa. The SDF-1 was not designed to be transformed at the start of its construction. The transformation originally came about due to the disappearance of the SDF-1's energy circuit, and the block structure of the ship was rearranged in order to connect the main gun directly to the reactor. However, after the effectiveness of this ability was confirmed, it was actively introduced into subsequent ships, and used to strengthen the Emigrant Ships' combat capabilities.
The creator of mankind that appeared in the legends of Mayan Island, an island in the Southeast Asian ocean. It is really a Protoculture relic that was hidden on the island. Although the details are unknown, it is assumed that the Protoculture—who genetically manipulated mankind's ancestors—left the Bird Man on the Earth as some kind of observation device. If an evolved human race showed a warlike tendency, the Bird Man was directed to eliminate them.
The technical team leader on the carrier Asuka, the flagship of the Unified Forces special forces. The Asuka was dispatched to the Mayan Island ocean area to investigate Protoculture ruins while the trial operation of the VF-0 Variable Fighter was being conducted on the ship. Raizō was in charge of aircraft maintenance on the Asuka. He has earned the deep trust of the pilots for his proficient skills.
A female pilot belonging to the Unified Forces "Fairy Leader" Valkyrie flight. She had the most adult mental-age among her colleagues—who joked even during combat—and was an assistant to squadron leader Silvie Geena. Nastassja was also an operator when she boarded the Macross Cannon.
A female officer serving as a bridge operator on the Battle 7. Even though she doesn't stand out and is hidden behind Miho Miho and Sally S. Ford, Natasha is one of the indispensable persons in the defence of the Macross 7 Fleet and the operation of the Battle 7.
Barugo, who appeared to have been swallowed up and annihilated in Gigiru's attack, was resurrected after obtaining a mechanical body. In addition to disabling the Anima Spiritia sound waves by adjusting their wavelength, Natta-Barugo was also able to combine with Gabiru and Gurabiru to become Gabigurago. Natta-Barugo hunted down Basara Nekki, who was heading toward the Remote Planet. However, Natta-Barugo was defeated before Basara, who sang in duet with Emiria Jīnasu.
A Chinese restaurant that did business on South Ataria Island. Lynn Minmei, who was later called the "Legendary Songstress", had a part-time job there. After the restaurant was swallowed up in the Macross's space fold, the business reopened in a residential area within the ship. After that, it appears to have held out with favourable performance. After the conclusion of the First Interstellar War, branch restaurants were opened on each Emigrant Planet and in each Emigrant Fleet, and Nyan-Nyan became a famous galactic-scale restaurant. Ranka Lee also worked in a branch part-time and sang their commercial jingle.
One of the songs in Fire Bomber's repertoire. It was a famous song that moved the listener's heart with its cheerful melody line and Basara's powerful singing voice, and this was the same for the Galactic Whales.* In addition, Elma Hoily is considered to have been greatly pleased to have been able to sing this song in a duet with Basara Nekki.
* Translator's note: "It was a famous song that moved the listener's heart with its acoustic melody line and Basara's singing voice, ..." in the original edition.
A Unified Space Forces base constructed on planet Eden. It functions as a test flight centre that mainly tests prototypes and trains pilots. From 2039, the base carried out "Project Super Nova"—the Unified Forces' Next Main Variable Fighter Development Project—under the command of base commander Millard Johnson. Even though the Unified Forces headquarters aborted the project when they decided to adopt the unmanned Ghost X-9 fighter, the project was later resumed because the dependence on artificial intelligence was deemed to be premature.
A song performed by Ranka Lee—who had been scouted by Vector Promotion—at a sales location. Carrots Love You Yeah! is a marketing song aimed at promoting the sales of Zentrādi carrots, and Ranka herself sang it in a carrot costume. However, it didn't have a good effect on the shoppers, and Ranka was particularly avoided by Zentrādi children with "That's creepy!" and "I hate carrots."
