Macross Super Dimensional Fortress

The Macross design was founded by accident as an unknown Alien Starship
appeared out of nowhere and crash landed on Yaga Minor's Macross Island.
The Empire's R&D immediately went to work on reconstructing the ship and
seeing the various Devices on it.

Three real technical Advances came through the search of the ship. 1: the
Folding Drive Which could send the ship through hyperspace in near
instantaneous space travel the ship itself can create a bubble to also
allow smaller ships like Carrack Cruisers to come along with it into battle.
2: The Reflux cannon which had the Power of a Super laser but more dispersed
and is capable of destroying small groups of ships with one shot. 3: the
technology of New Walkers which were capable of moving as fast as a speeder
and twice the power of an AT-AT along with Various Veritech Craft which were
being made available to other factions through a company that found similar
technology.The techs working on the ship refited some of the weapons with
Turbolasers as some were just unrepairable but many other weapons originally
found on the ship remained intact.

The Ship was designated the SDF-1 Macross and did a skirmish with 3 MC-90s
and 2 New Republic Torpedo Cruisers along with secondary craft.The Macross
destroyed the entire group of capital ships with the Reflux Cannons along
with long range firepower from it's various other weapons. With that lattest
victory in mind, there are plans for it being built to help the Remnants of
the Empire drive off the New Republic. The Second ship in line is Designated
the SDF-2 Thrawn.
