The SDFN-4 Global is a ship featured in the Macross Frontier television series. The Global was an SDFN-class ship attached as Flagship of the 117th Research Fleet operating in the late 2040s.

Design & DevelopmentEdit

The interior of the SDFN-4 Global featured a city for habitation and research facilities for Vajra study.


It was publicly declared in 2048 that a fold navigation error lead to the destruction of the Global and the other fleet ships, but the truth was far more disturbing. The 117th Research Fleet encountered the hostile Vajra in 2048. Ranka Lee was supposedly the only survivor from that fleet and due to mental trauma from the death of her family she had no memory of her early childhood. Some 11 years later, the wreckage of the SDFN-4 Global is found seemingly abandoned on the surface of Gallia 4 by Warrant Officer Alto Saotome of the SMS and civilian Ranka Lee. Upon exploring the interior of the craft it is found to be a portion of a Vajra hive. The Global and the rest of the hive was destroyed as an entire Vajra fleet emerged from beneath the surface of the planet, attained orbit and commenced a space fold. Just prior to the Vajra fleet departing, a Dimension Eater is unleashed on the surface of the planet, destroying a New UN Spacy base, the attached marine battalion and most of the planet itself. Thus how long the Global had been on Gallia 4 or how it arrived on the planet will likely remain a mystery.
