The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012 (超時空要塞マクロス Flash Back 2012 Chō Jikū Yōsai Makurosu Furasshu Bakku 2012) is a 1987 collection of music videos from the The Super Dimension Fortress Macross animated television series (1982–1983) and the Macross: Do You Remember Love? theatrical film remake (1984). Released to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the series, it also contains several minutes of new footage that depicted story events that were initially planned but not animated for the endings of the television series (the launch of the Megaroad colonization ship captained by Misa Ichijyo) and the film (the final concert on Earth for Lynn Minmay).[1] Preliminary designs were created for these story events in the production of the earlier works, but Flash Back 2012 was the first time that these events were animated (The earlier preliminary designs were replaced with new designs by the original director/mechanical designer Shoji Kawamori, original character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto, and original mechanical designer Kazutaka Miyatake).[1][2] The premise of the collection is a farewell concert by Lynn Minmay, who is leaving the Earth on its first long-distance colony vessel, Megaroad-01.[1]

According to the "official" Macross chronology, the SDF-2 Megaroad-01 fleet vanished four years later while traveling near the center of the galaxy during the new expedition (in July 2016 A.D.)[3] and was never heard from again. Lynn Minmay was among the missing.
