The reaction from alien relics. It is possible to detect the relics with the OTM-using "Cyclops" space-time oscillation radar. As a result, the Protoculture "Bird Man" relic—which was submerged in the coastal waters of Mayan Island—was discovered.
Brain Direct Imaging (BDI)—a control system introduced in the YF-21 based on the idea of "integrating the pilot and the aircraft", and the pilot's brainwaves are responsible for all controls, including fire control. It is an extremely delicate system, and in addition to sensitively detecting and implementing the pilot's brain waves, there is also a concern that a failure in the mental feedback can result in the loss of aircraft control. Incidentally, a simplified BDI System was installed in the formally adopted VF-22S Sturmvogel as a sub-control system.
The production company that the virtual idol "Sharon Apple" is affiliated with. One of the constituent organizations of the Macross Concern (currently under the umbrella of the L.A.I. Co.). The Unified Forces requested the development of the Sharon-type AI for the supervision of the Emigrant Fleets, and that AI was used as a window to acquire field data to win and control the hearts and minds of the people in the form of idol concerts.
A member of the 5-woman "Milky Dolls" idol group. She is an intellectual woman and plays a chairman-like role within the group. She is abducted by the Zentrādi Rebel Army and is taken prisoner on planet Elysium. [Source: Macross Digital Mission VF-X]
The Unified Forces Commander-in-Chief who pushed forward with an unmanned fighter deployment plan in absolute secrecy. With the completion of the Ghost X-9, which was equipped with an advanced artificial intelligence, "Project Super Nova"—the Next Main Variable Fighter Development Project—was forced to be cancelled.
A squadron composed of Zentrādi women belonging to the Private Military Provider S.M.S. Manning the Quadoran-Rea, three women are members of the squadron: Laramia Lerenia, and Nene Nōra, under Captain Kuran Kuran.
A Private Military Provider S.M.S. mission code. "Code Victor" is an entanglement with the Vajra. The code was "Victor 3" when they encountered the Vajra for the first time.
The first record company that Lynn Minmei was affiliated with when she made her debut as a singer. It is a record label inside the SDF-1 Macross.
She is in charge of the drums in Fire Bomber. Vihīda is a genuine Zentrādi, and is a large woman who is over 2 m tall even when she is miclonized. She is taciturn, but in crucial moments Vihīda voices words that are rich in nuance. She used to be a martial artist, and became a musician after hearing Nekki Basara's songs.
A creature that inhabits planet Eden. Even though they appear to be like a beast of prey that has grown wings, they are extremely docile, and are exported off the planet and raised as pets.
The main battleship in the Varōta Forces—it has both heavy armaments and heavy armour. The beam guns on both sides of the ship twist and aim the shot at the target in a polarized light field that surrounds the firing ports.
A boy who is an avid fan of Mylene, and has been supporting her since her debut performance. Billy lives on the Sunny Flower Farm Ship. As his parents have already died, he lives by helping with farm work. Even though he is a cheeky boy, Billy has a pure heart and doesn't tolerate the people who sell pictures of Mylene that were taken secretly.
* Translator's note: originally was: "They used VF-11 Thunderbolts that were uniformly a purple colour.
The name of the Valkyrie unit that Rei Lovelock, Kinryu, and Stephan used to belong to. When fighting with remnants of the Zentrādi Forces, Rei and Stephan were cut off from friendly forces. Stephan was killed in action due to Rei overruling his opposition and choosing to forcibly attack to escape from the enemy's encirclement. The unit was dissolved as Rei—who felt responsible for Stephan's death—was discharged from the military.
A Unified Forces designated terrorist group. Vinderance is led by Mariafokina Barnrose, who is descended from the Meltrandi. It is an enigmatic terrorist organization that aims at military facilities, and doesn't cause damage to the general public. In truth, they are a force that was organized to counter the rebel "Lactence" power in the Unified Government, which is trying to establish an iron-fisted government through military supremacy.

Even though the defended area is small, the PPB is a barrier system that allows one to change the defended area by moving it. Referencing the SDF-1 Macross's Local Fold-space Diversion Barrier, Variable Fighters from the VF-19 onward also have a VF Pinpoint Barrier as standard equipment.
Three female officers were in charge of the SDF-1 Macross's Pinpoint Barrier. They worked in the dedicated Pinpoint Barrier room, and manually moved the barriers. They had the ability of controlling the mobile barriers—with small defensive areas—to accurately ward off enemy attacks. However, there were times when they unfortunately couldn't cope with saturation attacks and were unable to defend against them.
A rock band belonging to the Akiko Lips Label. There are four members: Nekki Basara on vocals and guitar, Mylene Flare Jīnasu on vocals and bass, Vihīda Fīzu on drums, and leader Rei Lovelock on the keyboard. Initially, Fire Bomber was a minor band that held live performances centred on Akusho, an area that wasn't registered in the fleet. However, the band suddenly became famous with the presence of the Varōta Forces, which appeared at the same time that Mylene joined the band. Their popularity ignited when the image of Basara singing on the battlefield while spurring on a Valkyrie was reported, and his songs turned out to be effective against the unknown Protodevilun enemy. After the Varōta War, it wasn't unusual for Basara to abruptly go on a trip and the band to suspend their activities, and be active at their own pace.
An operator on the Battle Carrier belonging to the Macross 7 Fleet. She served as an operator together with her twin Shine when Fire Bomber held an onboard live performance.
The name that indicates the boosters on the top part of the fuselage in the VF-1 Valkyrie's Super Parts. On the other hand, it is also likely to be used as the word that indicates the Super Parts in general. It is used in particular with such VFs as the YF-19 and YF-21 to indicate all of the additional equipment that have functions close to that of the Super Parts on the other Valkyries.
This close-defence Destroid is the Phalanx's successor. In addition to enhanced firepower and armour, it is able to be operated both inside and outside of the atmosphere.
The victor's prize in the Miss Macross Contest. It is a commutor specification two-seater aircraft, manufactured by Ikki Tatebishi. Equipped with the VA-18 hydro-turbine engine, the Fan Liner was the latest sports model at the time.
A small aircraft with a sports specification. The engine was replaced with a higher performance one for acrobatics, and rocket boosters were added to Hikaru Ichijō's favourite airplane. Hikaru's fan racer broke when he crash-landed in the Closed Section of the SDF-1 Macross.
A Variable Aircraft for early warning. It has a two-seater cockpit, and the Valkyrie has a large radome and sensors.* The VE-1 takes on missions such as searching for enemies on the mothership's route and reconnaissance.
* Translator's note: originally was: "It is a two-seater type, and... ."
Since it was developed for local attacks, the VA-3 is a Variable Fighter-Attacker that focuses on survivability—such as improved bullet resistance—at the expense of manoeuvrability. As the VA-3M is an all-regime attack aircraft, it is able to navigate underwater and perform underwater combat. It was operated in the 727th Independent Squadron VF-X Ravens, who undertook many special missions.
The VA-3C Kai are the Variable Fighters that were refurbished and operated by the Galactic Whale Poaching Group—led by Kariba. They were usually operated equipped with Rocket Boosters, and that supplemented the VA-3C's usual slow speed.* The VA-3C Kai has a Gun Pod that fires a harpoon.
* Translator's note: "They were usually operated equipped with Super Packs, and that... ."
The Unified Forces next main Variable Fighter, which can transform into four modes. The Metal Siren has a wealth of built-in weapons, and its hand-to-hand fighting abilities in Battroid are also high due to the Plasma Spear that becomes the Valkyrie's nose when in Fighter. The VA-1SS was entrusted to ace pilot Nex Gilbert, and was deployed in battle with the Mardūk Forces in the orbit of Mars. Incidentally, a Fighter Mode-only replica model made its debut before an audience at the Moon Festival in a demonstration flight performed by Sylvie Geena.
The prototype Variable Fighter. Since it is a flight test type, it does not have a variable function. The VF-X's development continued on South Ataria Island, and Roy Fokker served as the test pilot.
The aircraft that took over the main fighter seat from the VF-4 Lightning III. Based on the concept of mission-specific aircraft, the VF-5000 was developed with a focus on manoeuvrability within the atmosphere, and adopted a blended-wing body with excellent atmospheric aerodynamic characteristics. There is a commander specification G model—with a differing head shape—the normal G model, and the two-seater T-G model.
The initial Variable Fighter developed by Shinsei Industry. It was test deployed to the Unified Forces Dancing Skull Special Forces unit on planet Neo York, and built an excellent track record. [Source: Macross Plus -Game Edition-, Macross M3]
