The UN Spacy follows naval traditions for its overall hierarchy and positions, but uses the rough equivalent of World-War-II-era Imperial Japanese Army and modern United States Air Force/Army ranks for its ranks. (The Imperial Japanese Army and the US Air Force uses different ranks from their sister branches for the lower enlisted ranks.)

The distinction should be made between the positions and the ranks in the UN Spacy (as well as in real-life military services). For example, the captain of a warship (艦長/kanchou) does not necessarily hold the rank of Captain (大尉/taii or 大差/taisa). Captain Bruno J. Global is a captain of a warship who actually holds the rank of brigadier general. The same is true of a commander of a base (基地の司令官/kichi no shireikan) and an admiral of fleet (提督/teitoku) for the ranks of Commander (中佐/chuusa) and Admiral (大将/taishou) respectively.

The typical Valkyrie VF-1 air tactical wing/group and Tomahawk attack battery varies in size from the models above. The Phalanx ended its development and started its deployment aboard the Macross after the ship's launch. The U.N. Spacy (United Nations Spacy) is the fictional military arm of the Earth U.N. Government (地球統合政府 chikyuu tougou seifu "Integrated Global Government") from the Japanese anime series Macross.

Fictional Organization Background

The organization's name is a portmanteau of Space and Navy, therefore making the word "Spacy". In the fictional Macross chronology it was established after 1999 by the successor to the modern United Nations in order to defend Earth from a possible attack by hostile aliens. However, from 1999 to 2008 the U.N. Spacy was also involved in the U.N. Wars conflict, fighting against a human Anti-U.N. faction opposed to the formation of the worldwide U.N. government. A year later the U.N. Spacy was involved in the subsequent Space War I, defending our planet from an hostile extraterrestrial race called the Zentradi.[1] Later operations of the U.N. Spacy expanded into interstellar colonization and general peacekeeping of off-world Earth settlements.[2]

At the time of the Zentradi invasion, the U.N. Spacy's assets included military bases on Earth, the Moon and Mars, squadrons of variable fighters and other mecha, several capital ships in orbit and the repaired SDF-1 Macross on South Ataria Island, the flagship of the United Nations Spacy.[3][4][5]
New U.N. Spacy (N.U.N.S.)
The New U.N. Spacy emblem from Macross Frontier.

According to the fictional Macross chronology, since the end of Space War I (2009 A.D. - 2010 A.D.) until the latest animated series, Macross Frontier (2059 A.D.), the original U.N. Spacy has been reorganized into the "New U.N. Spacy" or N.U.N.S.[1] The new organization functions as a space military force that is in charge of the protection and defense of the different colonization fleets of the Human and cultured Zentradi alliance and the planets they have colonized across the [[galaxy|galaxy]]]. The New U.N. Spacy now has a much bigger space navy composed mostly of military bases established on those planets as well as several defense fleets scattered among the colonization fleets. Each defense fleet is composed mostly of improved Human and Zentradi capital ships, new variable fighters and other mecha and at least one SDF-1 sized vessel used as command base for the current fleet.
Use of the term "Spacy" in Macross and other works

The term "spacy" (宇宙軍 uchuugun, lit. "space military" or "space army") is a portmanteau of the terms army (陸軍 rikugun, lit. "land military" or "land army") and navy (海軍 kaigun, lit. "maritime military" or "maritime army"). While some Japanese sources use the literal "Space Army" translation, the U.N. Spacy is probably best described as a kind of space-faring navy.

Although the term U.N. Spacy appears in footage adapted from Macross, it is never used in the dialogue of Robotech; instead, military control falls under the banner of the Robotech Defense Force.[6]

"Spacy" also appears in the Martian Successor Nadesico franchise, Voices of a Distant Star and Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket OVAs (Original Video Animations). In the Gundam OVA it appears in the form of the "U.N.T. (United Nations Troops) Spacy" (連邦宇宙軍 renpou uchuugun, "Federal Space Forces").[7] In the context of Gundam, the term "Earth Federation Space Force" is now the official English translation for the Japanese 地球連邦宇宙軍 (chikyuu renpou uchuugun, "Earth Federation Space Forces"), and U.N.T Spacy has been retconned as the abbreviation for "Under Normal Tactical Special Assortment Construction Yard."
