Rick Hunter: Stunt Pilot

Rick Hunter is the only son of Pops Hunter. Roy Folker was originally a part of the Hunter Flying Circus but he left to enlist in the military that was currently in a Global War. Rick always considered Roy his big brother (and Pops a second son). Rick is an accomplished stunt pilot prior to the Macross Island incident.

The Macross Saga

Rick is invited to the SDF-1 Macross launch festival to unveil the battle fortress and the new VF-1 Veritechs. Unknown the population of Earth the Zentradei have managed to trace the fortress (containing the Invid Protoculture Matrix) to Earth and the ship's early warning sensors detect the incoming craft and open fire on them (obliterating the two vessels). The Zentradei send fighters and battlepods to the surface and Rick (who was in a VT-1 Trainer with Roy before the scramble alert) is deployed into the fire fight. With Lisa Hayes guidance, Rick transforms the variable fighter to Battleoid showing off the secret to the citizens of Macross City. Roy arrives and gives Rick further tutoring on maneuvering the Veritech.
