Real-world events

  • 4 March - Robotech's 30th Anniversary.
  • 25 March - After years of stalling at Warner Brothers Pictures, the Robotech license is taken up by Sony Pictures Entertainment, who see it as a potential franchise. This brings promise of great change for the franchise, for better or for worse, as licenses on comics, video games, and animated products are now up-in-the-air. This decision also brings Robotech into a more mainstream mind-set, as the franchise manages to reach more than day-by-day enthusiasts.

  • July - Detailed images of Pluto are recorded by a NASA probe New Horizons, passing the planet after nine years of space-travel. NASA decides to name one of the chasmata discovered the "Macross Chasma," after the original 1982 series, along with many other land-marks named after such franchises as Doctor Who, Star Trek, and Star Wars.
