Planet Zola (惑星ゾラ Wakusei Zora) is a planet inhabited by the Zolans and was first introduced in Macross Dynamite 7. It is covered mostly by oceans, and the system itself is surrounded by an asteroid belt.
History[edit | edit source]
Life on Zola was seeded long ago by the Protoculture. Humanity encountered Zolans in the early 21st century. The majority of the creatures that inhabit the planet are marsupials, much like the Zolans themselves.
Once a year, the Galactic Whales migrate to the planet in order to obtain energy before moving on. However, because they are useful for powering space engines, Poachers flock to the planet and steal Battroids in order to attempt to capture them and sell them for a high price. When the whales reach 7,000 years in age, they fall to the planet, heading towards the Cemetary of the Warriors. Their bodies become energy that flows into the planet, nourishing it and helping it to create more life. Due to the excess energy, there are places, such as a hot spring that Elma Hoilie takes Basara Nekki to, that have intensive healing properties, able to heal even the most lethal of injuries.
Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The hot spring that Elma takes Basara to is the only place on the planet were creatures that are enemies of each other can gather and remain peaceful.
