The Zentlardy alphabet appeared in the 1980s cartoon series Robotech,
which was based on the Japanese cartoon Macross. The writing system
was used in the cartoon on the side of alien space ships, and in the now-defunct
roleplaying games Robotech and Macross II. The origins of the Zentlardy alphabet
are unknown, though Kevin Siembieda of Palladium Books was probably involved.
The name of the alphabet has a number of spellings: Zentlardy, Zentraedi or
