- The colours of the United Nations military are white and red, in spite of the Real Life United Nations using light blue with a touch of white. At the start it seems strange, but then you get a look at the United Nations Honour Flag, which has military symbolic value...
- Bodolza attacks Earth when Zentraedi start defecting. Macross 7 makes it much clearer why: what was happening in the Sol system had every indication of a Protodevlin infestation.
- After the time skip, Misa, Hikaru and Minmei get their personalities partially resetted, and Kaifun gets Flanderized from a Jerk with a Heart of Gold who hates the military into a Scrappy Soapbox Sadie. What did happen right before the timeskip? A Class 1 apocalypse, with Kaifun going back on his pacifist beliefs by helping the military kill those responsible, who, in terms of population, numbered in the billions. That did a number on their psyche, and it takes a while for them to recover (and Kaifun apparently never does).
