Eden is a lush and temperate world filled with indigenous wildlife, including massive "Dino-Birds" that are the size of a passenger airplane. Eden is also the home of the "Hydra", a griffin-like beast, noted for its purple skin with a hint of gold and glowing red eyes, some Hydras have been introduced to the Frontier colony as pets .
The system is filled with flat deserts and are often used as sites for military installations. The system's main electrical supply comes from wind power. The main capital, Capital City, is a bustling metropolis with a massive stadium capable of holding concerts and other events.
A year prior, following the end of the Space War I, the Humanity Seeding Project was announced, with the objective of searching for and colonize planets. By April, 2013, launches began for one close-range emigration fleet after another. A planet where colonization was possible was discovered ten-odd light years from the Solar System in the Groomsbridge 1816 Star System. It was named "Eden", meaning paradise, thus colonization began . November 2013 is the date of Eden's colonization.
Macross Chronicle states that Eden was colonized by unspecified Short Range Emigrant Fleet. Animation shown at the beginning of Macross Frontier suggests it was colonized by Megaroad-04. It is also confirmed by this source.
