Dr. Hasford (Dr. ハスフォード Dr. Hasufōdo) is one of the antagonists in the Macross Zero OVA. He was once a professor who trained Aries Turner before joining the Anti-U.N. Forces during the outbreak of the Unification Wars. Like Aries, he came to Mayan Island to search for the missing "AFOS" or "Bird Human" relic to prove his "Human Protoculture Intervention Hypothesis".
|“||The new world can only be created from the ashes of the total destruction of the old world. The current human race is a failed experimental species.||”|
As a mentor to Aries Turner, he exerted a profound influence on her current efforts to uncover the mysteries of Mayan. He is fatally wounded when the resurrected "Bird Human" sings its "Song of Destruction" and the ensuing chaos causes debris to fall on him. He then admits to Aries that he may have been wrong in his relentless pursuit.
