Operational Record
During the First Interstellar War, the Noputi Baganisu participated in the war as the vanguard of the Zentrādi global invasion, and thereafter pursued the SDF-1 Macross. The vanguard encountered and battled the Meltrandi Fleet, when they succeeded in capturing Earthlings such as Lynn Minmei, and the ship extradited the prisoners of war to Bodoruzā. In the last decisive battle, Buritai 7018 was touched off by Lynn Minmei's songs, and separated from the Bodoruzā led Zentrādi Forces 425th Flagship Fleet. His flagship also participated in the Earth Unified Forces' "Minmei Attack".
