Related Matter: The Consecutive Abducting of City 7
Just before City 7's forced fold, the covert operatives of the Varohta Forces that snuck into the Macross 7 Fleet abducted twenty or more people a week. The abduction of City 7 seems to have been their objective as they concealed their operation to seize the city and abducted the personnel needed to seize it, such as the people in charge of the fleet navigation systems and the Fold Section workers. Although the abductions themselves progressed smoothly, by kidnapping Mylene Jiinasu, who is the daughter of the Mayor and the Captain of the Battle 7, and is a Fire Bomber member, not only the police but also Fire Bomber began to search for the abducted people. As a result, after the location of the kidnapping victims was calculated by Fire Bomber, the transport that Nekki Basara's VF-19 Kai placed the victims into took part in the Varohta operation and played a major role in its conclusion.

Caption: Nekki Basara took part in the recapture of the power room because the covert operatives of the Varohta Forces aimed at the life force of the City 7 citizens.
