Storyline

Set years after the initial space war and peace with the alien race the Zentrani, a new fleet of colonization ships, each containing a city, treks to find a new planet to settle on. Lead by Capt. Maximillion Sterling in charge of the military escort and his estranged wife, Myrira Genus, Mayor of the key city of Macross 7 and advised by Exedore, the original Zentrani advisor, the fleet must achieve this goal despite the grave threat by a new enemy who constantly attack the fleet seeking to conquer the human population for their own sinister purposes. The enemy's numbers and might seem overwhelming, but the Earth fleet has a great advantage of their own. A rock band called Firebomber, fronted by Nikki Basara and the daughter of the Sterlings, has the rare and powerful musical talent that has turned the tide of battle to Earth's advantage in the past. Now the band must play a critical role in a war where singers are warriors and music can be the most valuable weapon of them all. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

the music will save us!
22 December 2009 | by (San Francisco, Pacific Rim) – See all my reviews

Macross 7 is indeed an odd one that took some getting used to on my part. A city-scale space ship under attack by psychic vampires? Yeah, okay. So why are they bugging us with this sub-plot about these silly pop-stars? Oh: the pop-stars are also fighter pilots. And they fight the psychic vampires by *singing bad pop songs at them*. There's a peculiar premise behind all this about music as a powerful motivational force, and an apparently sincere belief that you need to listen to bright, happy, bouncy music all the time or else you may collapse into a grumpy pit of depression. Strangely enough, many people react badly to all this (A comment on alt.Gothic from someone who uses "macross" as his handle: "Macross 7 is retarded"), but if you're looking for exposure to an alien point of view or for that matter just looking for silly kitsch, "Macross 7" may be just the thing for you.
