Vajra Raid: The Unknown Life-form that the Macross Frontier Fleet Encountered
Related Matter: The Fourth Macross Frontier President
The political system of the Frontier Fleet is a parliamentary democracy/presidential system that places a president who is superior to the three powers of government* above the parliament, which is composed of such things as a senate (the president's chief-of-staff is dispatched from the Earth's New Unified Government). At the time of the Vajra's attack, President Glass was the fourth president of the Frontier Fleet.
* Translator's note: the three powers of government being legislative, executive and judicial.

The president of the Frontier Government when the Vajra attacked. Having been informed of the existence of the Vajra, he coordinated with Richard Bilra, the owner of S.M.S., to advance countermeasures against the Vajra. Leon Mishima, the president's chief-of-staff, was the fiancee of Katherine Glass, the president's daughter.
