The Miss Macross Contest is a beauty and talent competition that began in the ninth episode, Miss Macross (SDFM) of the Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series. It was created to help boost morale of the population aboard the SDF-1 Macross under the guise of celebrating the launch of the ship from Earth. The winner of the competition was Lynn Minmay, chosen by popular vote. A similar talent and beauty competition was held in the Macross 7 television series to select members of Jamming Birds. Contestants were judged thoroughly by Dr. Gadget M. Chiba, which included Milia Fallyna Jenius.
In A.D. 2050, Ranka Lee entered the competition in the fourth episode, Miss Macross (Macross F) of the Macross Frontier television series. During the talent portion, she sang "My Boyfriend is a Pilot", but unfortunately lost. Despite her loss, she captured the hearts of many aboard the Frontier fleet, and soon made her debut as a singer.
The revival of the Miss Macross Contest was also a key plot point in Macross The Musicalture. In 2062, the 29th Super Long Distance Colony Emigrant Fleet was undergoing political and social unrest. The mayor, Serge Coban Glass, in hopes of reviving his flagging ratings and increase the morale of the population of City 29, decides to restart the Miss Macross competition.
