Macross Island

Macross Island in 2009. (Macross Saga: Boobytrap)

Macross Island was an uninhabited island in the South Pacific. In 1999, the island was the site of the crash landing of the SDF-1. In 1999, the USS Kenosha was on a mission to track the SSGN Minsk near Macross Island. The Kenosha and its battlegroup were sunk by the arrival of the SDF-1. (Comic: Robotech: From the Stars 1: From the Stars, Macross Saga: Boobytrap, et al.)

Following the crash people moved to Macross to study the alien vessel and the city of Macross City was built around the crashed vessel. (Robotech: The Macross Saga: "Boobytrap"; Comic: Robotech: From the Stars 1: From the Stars) Macmartin Island was a close neighbor of Macross and was the location of a United Earth military installation that was responsible for the testing of the first Veritech fighters. (Comic: Robotech: From the Stars 2: Call to Duty)

In 2009 , the island was attacked by Zentraedi forces as they attempted to recapture the Zor's battlefortress. Portions of the island were also destroyed by the initial firing of the SDF-1's main cannon. In an attempt to take the battle away from Earth the SDF-1 went to hyperspace over the island. The island and the surrounding ocean was encapsulated in the hyperspace fold and transported out into space, near Pluto. (Macross Saga: Boobytrap, Countdown, Space Fold)
