Humans (人間 Ningen?), also known as Miclones, are a species introduced in Super Dimension Fortress Macross. They have been featured in all works of the Macross Timeline since. They are native to and are the dominant species of the planet Earth which is ruled by the United Nations Government.
They are one of the Children of Protoculture.
Compared to other races of the galaxy, humans were relatively primitive, that is until a Supervision Army cruiser that they designated ASS-1 (Alien Starship One) crashed on their planet, resulting in not only scientific technological change but also political as ASS-1 was also evidence that conflict also beyond Earth and thus many humans believed humanity should be united, resulting in the formation of United Nations Government. The humans eventually rebuilt the cruiser and renamed it SDF-1 Macross, but over the course of its reconstruction, many nations opposed the United Nations Government began fighting a series of wars known as the Unification Wars and after they had ended, the intended launch for the Macross did not go a plan and instead a disastrous first contact with the Zentradi who were tracking the ship occurred, beginning Space War I.

Space War I
The catastrophic conflict caused the loss of about 3 billion out of 7 billion people of their population. Nevertheless, Humans eventually achieved peace, becoming a prominent civilization among the stars.
