The Prometheus was an aircraft carrier used by the U.N. Navy and stationed at South Ataria Island. At the start of Space War I in February 2009, the Macross conducted a risky fold operation within Earth’s atmosphere to evade the Zentradi. However, instead of appearing behind the Moon, the ship emerged near Pluto. Due to the fold occurring within the atmosphere, the Macross’ fold bubble also encompassed all of South Ataria Island and the surrounding ocean, including the Prometheus and the assault landing ship Daedalus. The two vessels were then adapted for space use and permanently docked with the Macross, serving as the ship’s “arms” in its humanoid attack mode. The carrier’s VF-1 Valkyrie and Destroid complement were added to that of the Macross for the remainder of Space War I. In January 2012, the Macross was heavily damaged during the Defensive Battle of Macross City when Kamjin Kravshera performed a suicide attack and crashed a Zentradi Gun Destroyer into the ship. The Macross was then extensively refit, and the Prometheus and Daedalus were replaced with new ARMD carriers.
