Before Johnathan's story could be told it's important to know a little about the world he lived in. In the year 1999, Earth has been ravaged by the Global War. Brother battled brother as the conflict raged across the planet, but the devastation paled in comparison to a new threat that appeared to alter the course of human history forever. Astronomers discovered an alien spaceship that had broken through the very fabric of hyperspace on a collision course with the Earth. Alarm increased as reports of the giant spaceship were confirmed by scientists around the planet. Eventually, they determined that the landing site would be Macross Island in the South Pacific.
The uncontrolled descent produced shock waves of incredible force; however, there was little damage to the island or, surprisingly, to the spaceship itself. The armored hull had taken the brunt of the fall, leaving most of the sophisticated technosystem intact. The gigantic craft was explored with a mixture of awe and anxiety. There was no sign of the alien crew, but the remains of the battlefortress gave evidence of a civilization that was centuries ahead of Earth’s most advanced technology. That alone was the most sobering discovery. Neither the look of the spaceship nor the material found inside indicated its creators were a peaceful race. Annihilation by invaders from another planet had become a terrible possibility.
The Global War ground to a halt. A cease-fire was ordered, and world leaders banded together to form the United Earth Government. Under this new administration, a research team consisting of the most brilliant minds on the planet was formed to investigate and restore the battlefortress. The team labored to decipher parts of the documents from an incredibly complex technology called Robotechnology.
For the next ten years, the resources of the entire planet were focused on the restoration of the spacecraft on Macross Island. A great city grew up around the Robotech Project. On the eve of the ship’s maiden flight, every citizen – man, woman, and child – gathered to celebrate the achievement and to witness the launching of Earth’s new defender under the name of the Super Dimension Fortress One.
His childhood and High School Years.
Johnathan was a regular child growing up. Just like most little boys he loved outdoor activities and sports. He was not a popular boy but had a couple of friends that he was close growing up from elementary to High School. One of these was a guy named Antonio. They were close, very close and that was a problem for Johnathan. As a young as 14 years of age he had been keeping a secret. That he was a homosexual and had feelings for the guy. He made sure no one knew since his father was homophobic. Johnathan worried about his father finding out and kicked out of home. One even right after High School graduation Johnathan struck up the courage to tell Antonio of his feelings for him. Antonio turned him down but the worst part was that his father walked in on it and his secret was now exposed. His father yelled and called him some homophobic slurs. His father kicked out of his home. He was now homeless and heart broken. As he was walking the streets in his home city he came upon a flier to joing up for the Robotech Defense Forces. Which was created after world peace was formed to protect the Earth from a possible Alien threat. As child he loved space and he wanted to get away from the pain in his life. The idea of getting away as well as go into space seemed appealing to him so he enlisted in the RDF. This why he was on Macross island was one of the fighter pilots assigned to the SDF-1.
The Begining of the First Robotech War.
As the SDF-1 prepares for takeoff under the command of Captain Henry J. Gloval, inhabitants of Macross City enjoy opening festivities hosted by war hero Lieutenant Commander Roy Fokker. Their enjoyment is short-lived as another warp-fold splits the fabric of space. Yet another huge alien ship enters Earth’s solar system. These are the Zentraedi, a race of giant warriors bred for thousands of generations for the sole purpose of military conquest. They are in pursuit of the Robotech battlefortress. The alien finder-beam locks in on the SDF-1’s position, and the rest of the armada follows its flagship to an orbit circling Earth. Under the command of Breetai and his assistant, Exedore, the Zentraedi prepare to reclaim their lost property.
When the spacefortress senses the presence of the Zentraedi armada, it automatically begins to prepare defense mechanisms. The bridge of the SDF-1 dissolves in chaos. Captain Gloval leaves the opening ceremonies to join his crew. Lieutenant Commander Lisa Hayes and Bridge Officer Claudia Grant advise him of the ship’s unusual behavior. As the SDF-1 bridge crew become aware of the invaders and regain control of their ship, a combat alert is ordered and all personnel are called back to the ship.
Breetai and Exedore don’t know what to make of the humans' initial attack. Their defense seems erratic. It does not put the Robotech battlefortress to its most effective use. The Zentraedi can hardly guess that their foes lack sufficient knowledge to control the massive Robotech mechanisms.
Johnathan didn't know but these events would change his life like he could never imagine it. This war would take him to the edges of the solar systems as he and the people aboard the SDF-1 would be fighting for there lives and for safety of humanity. Fighting the Zentradi on distant worlds Pluto, Saturn, Mars and all the way back to Earth. This war would proof costly to him and every person. Through the ups and downs of his military life he will meet great brothers in arms and form relationships that he will never forget that would help fill up the empty void in his heart. He would spend most of his live protecting people during the span of four wars and it will take him across the galaxy.
