    Description and History

    Of the seven central ships in the 37th long-distance colonization fleet (Einstein Research Experimental Ship, Hollywood Amusement Ship, Mark Twain Resort Ship, Riviera Resort Ship, Sunnyflower Agricultural Ship, and Three Star Factory Ship) the West Point Class Macro-Training Base Ship is the only military vessel of the group. As the name implies, the West Point Class is a training ship and is equipped with numerous military facilities such as flight simulators for pilot training. In addition to training, the Beginhill acts as a frontline command center for the fleet (in the absence of the Macross 7) and also supports the fleet by replenishing supplies and developing weapons.
