CHARACTERS and STORY

Macross Delta Scramble covers the events told in the Macross Delta anime series, set eight years after the events in Macross Frontier and Macross 30: Voices Across the Galaxy.

STORY PREMISE

It is the year 2067 A.D.. Eight years have passed since the Frontier Colonial Fleet's battle with the Vajra ended, and since then the galaxy has been at peace. That fragile peace is about to be shattered: multiple Zentraedi have begun to suffer from a mysterious plague called “Var Syndrom,” which suppresses their reason and transforms them into mindless, violent berserkers who can only be calmed down by Deculture! An elite team of fighter pilots/idols, the Walküre, use the power of their song to manage to ever-increasing outbreaks of Var Syndrom.
Meanwhile, at the edge of colonized space, the self-proclaimed Windermere Kingdom has declared war on the New United Government, taking advantage of the chaos spread by Var Syndrom to invade the Brisingr Cluster and secure their independence by force.
