The Gloval Initiative was a planned project of the Robotech Expeditionary Force and was created in 2014. It stated that the long term objective of the Robotech Expedition was the advancement of colonization and preservation of the Human race.
In 2038 during the Third Robotech War, Lieutenant Lance Belmont quoted the Initiative and believed that fighting for control of the Earth with its ravaged eco-system was a contradictory use of the Expeditionary Forces resources. Despite this, he agreed to follow the orders of Admiral Rick Hunter when he was assigned as a member of the Earth Reclamation Force. (Robotech: Invasion: Part 2)
