Meltrandi (メルトランディ Merutorandi), also referred to as Meltran, are female Zentradi created by the Protoculture. This concept was introduced in the film The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? and was originally in the television series. They were also featured in the Macross 7: Encore OVA.
|“||Long ago, there was an intergalactic culture called the Protoculture. Their genetic engineering was highly developed. And when men and women could each produce offspring by themselves, they split up as the male-only Zentradi and the female-only Meltrandi and began warring. And that's when they created the giants who knew only how to fight. But the war of the giants got too vicious and the people realized their mistake.||”|
The Meltrandi are a race of female giants, artificially created and bred for war by the Protoculture. They are the sworn enemy of the Zentradi having fought them for over a millenia, and are led by the tyrannical Moruk Lap Lamiz who feared "cultural contamination" from the humans. Milia Fallyna Jenius served as one of her top ace pilots. She would pilot her red Queadluun-Rau to conduct raids against the Zentran fleet to weaken their defenses.
They were ultimately defeated by Golg Boddole Zer when he fired upon their fleet with his ship's main cannon.
