Bruno J. Global (ブルーノ・J・グローバル Burūno Jei Gurōbaru?) is a character that appears in the Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series and The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? movie. He is a U.N. Spacy officer of Italian descent who famously captained the SDF-1 Macross. [1].


Unification Wars

During the Unification Wars, he was the captain of the U.N. Navy submarine Marco Polo and later, of the spaceship Oberth-class Destroyer "Goddard".[2]

Global's commanding officer during the Unification Wars was Misa Hayase's father Takashi Hayase.

He married Miho Global in March 2003.

In 2005 under his command the space destroyer Goddard engaged and destroyed her hijacked sister ship Tsiolkovsky in the first ever use of reaction weaponry in real ship-vs-ship space combat during the U.N. Wars. Bruno J. Global rose through the ranks of the United Nations Forces thanks to his exploits during the Unification Wars until he was assigned as Captain of the flagship of the infant Spacy, the SDF-1 Macross fortress.

Space War I

  • Persuaded by the politician, he waves to the citizens.
  • During the Politician's speech, he receives a message.
  • Urgently going to the bridge, leaving the politician confused.
In the morning of February 7, 2009,[3] the launch date of the SDF-1 Macross, Captain Global was discussing with the Space Defense Council that should the Macross encounter an alien species, under no circumstances would Earth initiate any hostilities. He later journeyed to the Macross in a limousine with a Politician. In the limousine he appeared to be displeased, the Politician told him to wave because the citizens of Macross City, South Ataria Island were flocking to the streets to see him because he's captain of the Macross. Due to the meeting, he arrived at the Macross later than his crew which left them wondering where he was. He then stood on the stage where the Politician was making a speech. He was informed by an officer about a message from the ARMD-01 Space Carrier. The message stated that they detected gravitational and spectroscopic anomalies originating from a high lunar orbit. Captain Global recalled that the same thing happened 10 years ago, when the Macross first appeared. (SDFM: "Boobytrap")

Captain Global orders a space fold despite Misa informing him that it's an alien system.

Captain Global ordered Claudia to set a course for South Ataria to make it look like they are landing and then initiate a spatial transfer, Claudia objected since it hadn't been tested up until that point, but the order is still given the go ahead. (SDFM: "Space Fold")

During the skirmishes of Space War I, Global came up with various strategies (with a little help from First Lieutenant Misa Hayase) to evade the Zentradi, rather than attacking them head-on. The most tragic event under his command came with the collapse of the Macross ill-fated omnidirectional barrier, wiping out a large city in the Ontario region. The event caused a wider rift between him and the U.N., leading to the temporary exile of the Macross from Earth.

Eventually, when Milia Fallyna of the Lap Lamiz fleet defected to the Macross and wished to marry Maximilian Jenius, Global gave them permission, and by doing so made the major step toward peace with the Zentradi.

Aftermath of the war

After Space War I, he took an administrative position in the U.N. Government and helped design the Human Emigration Project, a space colonization scheme followed by the U.N. for the following years to ensure the survival of mankind and its culture in case of further appearances of |Zentradi and [[[Supervision Army]] fleets.

He became an admiral as well as commander of the U.N. Spacy after the battle against Boddole Zer. Hebecome U.N. Representative in 2014, and retires from the Spacy as a full Admiral.
