TODAY February 7, 2009 SOUTH ATARIA ISLAND, U. N. SPACY Space Battleship Super Dimension Fortress-1 christened Macross last January 19th launched from South Ataria Island in the Pacific Ocean, in response to an attack by unknown enemies presumed to be extraterrestrials. The Macross was also reported to have fired its main gun while still in its launchpad. Satellite reports that targets have been destroyed.
Reports have also arrived that the Macross has completely disappeared, but is not destroyed. Speculation and explanation from U. N. SPACY sources tell us that the Macross executed what is being called a hyperspace fold from within the atmosphere. U. N. SPACY has not issued a statement regarding the matter, but scientists proclaim that the performance of such an action is of tremendous risk and should not, under no circumstances have been done. The SDF-1 Macross is led by Capt. Bruno S. Global.
In addition to the disappearance of the Macross, the entire civilian city is reported to be wiped out, as if it had never existed on the island, plus two U. N. Spacy aircraft carriers: the Prometheus, and the Daedalus. No information as to the whereabouts of the Macross or any of the aircraft carriers and the civilian population of South Ataria Island is available at present.
According to this aritcle, the official launching ceremony will be held in Akihabara in February 22, 2009. But according to the existing timeline it is on February 7. Besides, /m/ is celebrating today! I join my /m/asters in remembering love.
