Macross Frontier is the most recent Japanese anime television series set in the Macross universe.
The new show celebrates the 25th anniversary of the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross TV series (1982~1983), and is chronologically subsequent to Macross 7 (1994~1996). This third TV series introduces Earth's latest main variable fighter, the VF-25 Messiah (????) and a new ship called the Macross Frontier. The show retains the signature space opera theme consistent with all series set in the Macross universe (which intertwine musical numbers with fast-paced variable fighter combat).
Episode 25 - While the Frontier fleet continues its fight against the Vajra the Macross Quarter arrives and saves Battle Frontier from an enemy attack. Captain Wilder reveals evidence that proves how leaders of Macross Galaxy fleet were behind Vajra attacks on Macross Frontier fleet and that Leon was conspiring with them. Alto manages to contact the fleet to reveal that while fighting Brera, he managed to see the true enemy inside the giant hologram of Ranka. Having escaped death by ejecting from his VF-171EX, Alto tells the Macross Quarter crew to fire at said hologram. After the Quarter shoots it, it reveals the military flagship of the Macross Galaxy fleet, Battle Galaxy, proving that it was the true faction behind the Vajra attacks. The combined Galaxy/Vajra forces start attacking again and Island One, the main residential area of the Frontier fleet receives a fierce counterattack, becoming endangered. During the battle, Alto learns of Ranka's true situation and spurs Sheryl to help him wake her from her trance. Grace O'Connor becomes fully connected to the Vajra Queen and starts attacking the Frontier forces with it.
