バトル・ギャラクシー

A Battle-class Variable Stealth Space Attack Carrier that connects with the Macross Galaxy Fleet's Mainland. Even though it was attacked by the Vajra and was assumed to be missing, in reality it was going strong and was used by the Galaxy Fleet's powers-that-be—Grace O'Conner and the others—in the decisive battle of the Vajra Homeworld. It used the Sharon-model AI employing AIF-9V Ghost Unmanned Fighters as carrier-borne aircraft. The Battle Galaxy was destroyed in a wave of attacks by the Macross Quarter and the Battle Frontier.

An extra-large All-purpose Variable Stealth Space Attack Carrier—the combat section of the 7th New Macross-class Emigrant Fleet. Maximilian Jīnasu is the ship's captain. Normally the Battle 7 is used for such things as command, investigation, navigation, and defence while docked to City 7, and is operated separately when there is an emergency. It was seriously damaged at one time due to the Varōta War, but it has been restored.

Battroid [Zero, M, Plus, FB, 7, 7Gin, D7, F, Ai, II, Other]
バトロイド

The designation when a Variable Fighter is in its humanoid form. The "Battroid" is an armament that was originally developed making use of OTM and pursuing manoeuvrability and operational flexibility up to the utmost limits. After that, there is Fighter—the fighter aircraft form that resulted from the demand for air combat abilities—and the accidentally discovered GERWALK form, which is midway between the fighter aircraft and humanoid forms.

Battroid Festival [7]
Caption: [Battroid Festival] Even though diverse citizen-owned VFs and Destroids were displayed, the festival was considered to be a concentration of military strength by the Varōta Forces that lurked in City 7, and they attacked it.
バトロイド・フェスティバル

An event held in City 7 when it was seperated from the Battle 7 during a maneuver by the Varōta Forces. The event was held on city land.

Bouquet Girl [7]
Caption: [Bouquet Girl] When Nekki Basara woke up from a coma, her wish came true and she was finally able to give the bouquet to him.
花束の少女

A young lady who is a fan of Fire Bomber. She has been an avid fan since before their major debut, and participates at their live performance venues holding different types of bouquets every time. However, she unfortunately always misses the opportunity to give the bouquet to Basara.

Takashi Hayase [M]
Caption: [Takashi Hayase] Even though he was unfamiliar with Misa as a father, he cherished her as Misa had been raised by Takashi—a single father—instead of by his wife, who had died young due to an illness.
早瀬隆司

An admiral in the Earth Unified Forces. Even though he was born into a military family that has lasted for over 100 years, he was a person who thought flexibly and boldly—such as disguising himself as the Anti Unification Alliance and plundering food from allies—in order to maintain the morale of his unit during the Unification War. However, Takashi underestimated the Zentrādi Forces during the First Interstellar War, considered peace to be out of the question, and did not break from his posture of determined resistance against them. Incidentally, his only daughter is Misa Hayase, the SDF-1 Macross's chief air traffic controller. In addition, Bruno J. Global, the Captain of the Macross, was also an old friend and former subordinate, and it seems that they were so close that Takashi introduced Global to his future wife, and even served as a matchmaker.

Misa Hayase [M, FB]
Caption [appears at the top of the reverse side]: [Misa Hayase] She is known for having had a love triangle with Lynn Minmei over Hikaru Ichijō.
早瀬未沙

The SDF-1 Macross's chief air traffic controller. She is an elite who graduated from the military academy at the top of her class, and is a woman with a rigid military mentality for both herself and others. Misa is a close friend of Claudia LaSalle, who serves on the same bridge, and is admired by the junior bridge operators like an older sister. Although she was at odds with the pilot Hikaru Ichijō, they gradually became aware of each other as members of the opposite sex. Misa—having learned the truth of the enemy when she was taken prisoner by the Zentrādi Forces—made an effort to accept the Zentrādi asylum seekers. She left the Macross and landed on the Earth to find a way to peace, but couldn't persuade her father, an Admiral in the Earth Unified Forces. After the First Interstellar War, Misa worked together with the others in the reconstruction of the Earth as a prominent figure in the New Unified Government. In 2012, she departed with Hikaru on a trip into the galaxy as the Captain of the Super Long Range Emigrant Fleet Megaroad-01.

Misa Hayase [Ai]
Caption: [Misa Hayase] Misa fell into despair after making an emergency landing on the Earth with Hikaru. However, she regained her vitality supported by the positive Hikaru. In that extreme situation, the two were attracted to and connected with each other.
早瀬未沙

The chief air traffic controller serving on the SDF-1 Macross's main bridge. Misa is a straight-laced, talented woman. Due to the experience of losing her first love on the battlefield in the past, Misa was such a late bloomer when it came to love that her best friend Claudia LaSalle was worried about her. Although Misa was repulsed by Ichijō Hikaru—a pilot who did not keep discipline—she felt his kindness, and was fond of him. However, Lynn Minmei also had feelings for Hikaru, and they took on the aspects of a love triangle. Be that as it may, Misa was rewarded as his heart was already for her. Incidentally, she translated the lyrics on the plate they found in the Altira Protoculture ruins, and was the lead actor in the shadows when Lynn Minmei's song led to the end of the war.

バリアブル・グラージ

A variant of the "Gurāji" Battle Pod. It was developed as a three-stage Variable Vehicle. While retaining the advantages of the Gurāji's great firepower, the Variable Gurāji could now conduct aerial combat without having to be equipped with a booster unit. Even though it was piloted by Moaramia Jifon—a Zentrādi girl—the Variable Gurāji was captured by the Unified Forces Special Forces Dancing Skull unit, and was deployed in that unit after being upgraded.

Lure Of The Valkyrie [7]

The Ehvil that is his body is a Biological Tactical Reconnaisance Drone Command Unit with the ability to operate familiars. On Planet Rax, Barugo seemed to have been annihilated after being swallowed up in the onslaught that was released by the awakened Gigiru. However, Barugo was salvaged by Ivano Geperunicchi and resurrected as Natta-Barugo—who had a mechanical body.

Varnadium Ore [7Gin]
バルナジウム鉱石

The ore mined on the frontier planet [where the Macross 7 Movie is set]. In 2045, they couldn't find it even after digging for 20 years. It seems to be an extremely rare mineral—to the extent that it brings about a wealth that can maintain a village even without being mined for a long period—and the villagers, who fear it being stolen from them, watch outsiders excessively.

▲ Top ▶ Glossary Index

Varōta Forces [7, 7Gin]
バロータ軍

The armed forces organized by the Protodevilun—who had been sealed away on the fourth planet of the Varōta 3198XE star system—to collect Spiritia. They started collecting Spiritia with their overwhelming military power. In 2045, they encountered and targeted the Macross 7 Fleet. The people who had emigrated to the Varōta Star System formed the base of the Varōta Forces, and they were all under the control of the Protodevilun via mind control. The Varōta Forces possessed equipment based on the weapons of the Unified Forces that had their own distinctive improvements applied to them while also incorporating a Spiritia absorption device.

Howard Glass [F]
Caption: [Howard Glass] He is the first person to publicize the existence of the Vajra.

ハワード・グラス

The fourth President of the Macross Frontier Fleet. Howard is a moderate who puts the livelihood of the citizens first. However, he was assassinated by Leon Mishima—the President's Chief of Staff—who was the fiancé of his daughter Catherine Glass.

Anti Unification Alliance [Zero, M]
反統合同盟

A collective of forces that opposed the Earth Unified Government. The reason for not having had accommodated the Unified Government varies according to the governmental power, such as ethnic conflicts or concessions due to OTM monopolies. They had OTM that was not inferior to that of the Unified Forces, and were engaged in local wars in various places—referred to as the Unification War. However, the Anti Unification Alliance rapidly weakened after the Bird Man Incident. Incidentally, when the Zentrādi attack on South Ataria Island was covered up, the Unified Government proclaimed that it was terrorism by remnants of the Anti Unification Alliance.

Reaction Weapons [Zero, M, 7, D7, F]
Caption: [Reaction Weapons] The weapons were mainly used as the Reaction Bombs in such things as ship-based missiles and VF-carried missiles.
反応兵器

Great destructive energy is produced by theses thermonuclear reaction weapons, which use Heavy Quantum in their detonators. For that reason, the Galactic Treaty—concluded after the First Interstellar War—put restrictions on their use. Even though the initial Reaction Weapons seem to have had the potentiality of causing radioactive contamination, the weapons basically do not generate any residual radioactivity.

Vampire [7]
Caption: [Vampire] They came to be called "Vampires" because they attacked the citizens under the cover of twilight, and snatched away Spiritia with their mouth absorption port.
バンパイア

Special operatives from the Varōta Forces that lay concealed in City 7. They were referred to as "Vampires" in the fleet and were feared by the citizens. The special operatives were collecting Spiritia and conducting recovery experiments with it.
