In the beginning of the story, Rick is a very skilled amateur pilot and quite cocky and arrogant. He is also somewhat of an ameteur when it comes to emotions and expressing his feelings. However, as the story progresses, Rick grows into a combat veteran, and a veteran of sorrow and of love. After arriving at Macross Island and visiting with his "older brother" Roy Fokker, Rick is quickly thrown headlong into the intergalactic war with the Zentradi. Sitting inside the cockpit of one of the display VT's, Rick is ordered to take off and engage the enemy. An extreme case of being in the wrong place (or right place depending on how you look at it) at the wrong time, Rick flies the VT for the first time into the rageing carnage of the skies above Macross.
