Episode 1: Booby Trap
In 1999, a giant alien spacecraft crash lands on South Ataria island. Humanity proceeds to attempt to rebuild this marvel, but political conflicts centered around the Macross result in a global war. After 10 years, the Unification Wars are finally over, the new Earth United Nations Government is in power, and work on the Macross is complete. On the day of the launching ceremony, its main cannon fires on its own, destroying an alien spacecraft. This fateful day marks the beginning of the war between the humans on the Macross and the Zentradi, a race of humanoid aliens of giant proportions.
Episode 2: Countdown
Air-racer pilot Ichijo Hikaru is about to get a joy ride in a Valkyrie fighter from his sempai, Major Roy Focker, when an air raid alert is called. Aliens are attacking. Left alone by Focker, and having nothing better to do, he falls asleep in the cockpit, only to be awoken by an order to launch into combat. Hikaru gets his first taste of combat, and also meets 16 year-old Lynn Minmay, the young woman that will have the greatest impact on the rest of his life. The Macross begins its launch and its crew finds themselves facing an unknown enemy and an uncertain future.
Episode 3: Space Fold
The Captain of the Macross is forced to make a quick decision due to the relentless attacks of the enemy. Using alien technology that humanity has not yet been able to test, the Macross makes a space fold near the Earth’s surface, above South Ataria island. Little do they know the consequences this desperate action will have.
Episode 4: Lynn Minmay
Hikaru and Minmay, after finding themselves suddenly in outer space, finally make it back aboard the Macross. Now they discover that they are in a sealed off, unused portion of the battleship. As the Macross starts its long journey back to the Earth, Hikaru and Minmay stave off fear and desperation by searching for a way back to the inhabited sectors, learning a little more about each other along the way.
