Body Explanation
The 37th Super Long Range Emigrant Fleet Macross 7 (Macross 7 Fleet), which is composed of several large military vessels, uses passenger vehicles for the movement of people.* The standard passenger vehicles -which are used in this era- handle the space highway "Milky Road". They not only move within ships, but are also used to move between ships. The majority of the passenger vehicles that are owned by civilians are models that can handle the Milky Road, and their user-friendliness is extremely high.*

Caption: The models of vehicles that are able to handle the Milky Road can be called new automobiles that have evolved to match the era.
