If I was asked to choose my favorite science-fiction-related love story, my selection would be the romance between hotshot pilot Rick Hunter and high-ranking officer Lisa Hayes from the animated TV series Robotech. In a nutshell, the Macross saga is a space opera about giant aliens arriving at Earth to find out their sought-after spaceship is in possession of the humans. The humans, using the ship, try to fold (hyperspace jump) to the Moon but end up near Pluto and must make a long journey back to Earth with the aliens in pursuit.
In the Macross Saga, there is a love triangle between Rick, Lisa and singer Lynn Minmei, which gives the show depth. Ultimately, Rick marries Lisa.
Below is a fan-made comic panel of Rick proposing to Lisa. You most likely will need to click on the image to read the text.
