Programs: The Bolognese is a stealth frigate, the main-force warship for colonization fleets. This type of warship employs stealth technology and is the smallest capital ship in these fleets. There exists many variations, including firepower-enhanced, reconnaissance, and early-warning versions as well as variations specific to Zentradi crews. The frigate's low firepower is compensated by its maneuverability.

Debut: Macross 7
Designer: Kazutaka Miyatake
Note: The Bluenose, Carla 009, and Lucy are not specified to be in the same class as the other frigates. The Stargazer name is a supposed reference to the ship of the same name in Star Trek: The Next Generation. For an example of mutual inspiration and idea cross-pollination, please see this post and this post on USENET from Star Trek franchise technical illustrator and modeller Rick Sternbach.
