Another major battle against the Vajra puts the Macross Quarter and its crew to the test. When Luca is sucked into a Vajra capital ship, Alto reckless smashes his way in to save him. There, he encounters what I (and I’m sure others) dub "The Red Baron", a red Valkyrie that proves to be faster and more maneuverable than the SMS pilots. Not much to report on this episode; it’s all flash to introduce the new threat and rival for Alto. The wrinkle here is the Baron seems to know what music is unlike the initial contact with the Zentradi. This was a fun episode that slipped in a nice plot wrinkle; sit back and enjoy!
