En el año de 1999, un gran objeto
de repente cayó del espacio y se estrelló en la Isla de South
Ataria, en el Pacífico Sur. Durante este tiempo, la Tierra estaba
envuelta en una guerra mundial. Después del choque del objeto, toda
la gente asumía que alguien comenzaba a utilizar armas nucleares,
y la guerra mundial se detuvo por un tiempo.
U.N. had discovered that the object that crashed on the island was a huge extraterrestial
spacecraft. That fact was, however, kept a secret from the public for some time, and, for all
intents and purposes, the object was referred to as "a huge asteroid". The island was then
declared a U.N. controlled-zone, and no one was let in but government officials, the millitary,
After a truce was called to end the global civil war , and to try to
bring the chaos caused by
the crash under control, the United Nations Government, a alliance of all the world's major
countries, was formed. They later sent a group of scientists to the island to decipher and
possilbly try to understand the Alien technology, and possibly try to harness it. During this
time, the United Nations Goverment created the U.N. Spacy, a elite millitary organization
similar in fashion to the Army and the Navy, to protect the earth from a possible alien invasion or atatck.
It was later discovered, through analysis of the ship, that the aliens
who inhabited the ship were in excess of 40 feet in height,
and had weapons and means of space travel much more advanced than the United Nations Government could possibly
imagine. The scientists, in cooperation with the UNG and the U.N. Spacy, begun to develop weapons to combat any possible
threat, and restructuring and restoration of the crashed ship also began, which would later become the flagship of the U.N.
After these events, it was eventually revealed to the public that the
"asteroid" was actually a spacecraft, and that the ship
belonged to an extraterrestrial race. However, the size of the beings was not released in order to aviod a possible panic.
Ten years later, in January, 2009, the re-fitting of the ship and the
new weapons were completed, and the ship was christened
the flagship of the U.N. Spacy - The SDF-1 Macross. During the launching ceremonies, a large number of objects suddenly
appeared in the vicinity of Earth. This event bore a resemblance to the events that occured just before the Macross appeared
and crashed on Earth back in 1999. Suddenly, the Macross' Main Reflex Cannons were fired automatically upon several of
the objects, completely destroying them. The U.N. Spacy later determined from radar reports after the blast that the objects
were part of an alien fleet, known as the Zentradi (the name was unknown to the U.N. Spacy for quite some time), who had
detected the Macross de-folding from 10 light years away, and pursued it to this system, seraching for survivors of their own
fleet who may have been taken captive on the ship by their enemies.
And with these events, Space War I, the U.N. Spacy versus the Zentradi,
began, aso begun the saga known as Macross...
