What is Robotech?
First running in 1985, Robotech created an original series by adapting scenes from three older anime. Set in the not-too-distant future, the show revolved around a series of intergalactic wars. These were triggered by humanity’s discovery of advanced technology after an alien fortress, SDF-1, crashed on Earth.
The First Robotech War ended with the fortress destroyed and a newfound peace between Earth and their former enemies, the Zentraedi. That peace is fragile, however, with Zentraedi terrorists trying to start a new war. There are also malcontents in Earth’s military just as eager to exterminate all aliens.
This interferes with Rick Hunter’s new mission to explore the universe. It will fall to Rick, his friend Vince Grant, and the pilots under their command to face a new threat to Earth’s order.
Who Is The Creative Team?
