In 1999 an alien spaceship crashed onto the earth. Hidden on board were the secrets of a unique science known as Robotechnology. Databanks found in the ship were transferred to the Earth Robotech Computer Complex. In 2009, an alien search party arrived from hyper-space to reclaim their lost databank. The united Earth Government was forced into an Inter Galactic war. Earth forces were able to win the first battle......but at a great cost. The planet was virtually destroyed. New population centres grew out of the ashes..... It is now 2027, a second armada sent by the aliens is nearing earth, they have come to recapture the secrets of their lost technology and then destroy the Earth. Written by

Did You Know?
The events of this movie were originally intended to take place during the events of the Macross Saga when the SDF-1 was in deep space. This had to be changed when the film was re-edited with Southern Cross footage, which also altered its place in the time-line. Originally Colonel Andrews was intended to be a younger version of Colonel Edwards who would have appeared as a regular character in the aborted Robotech II: The Sentinels. In the book Robotech Art 3, by Carl Macek, Edwards' original name was B.D. Edwards. During the time of the Southern Cross segment, Edwards would have been elsewhere (as a crew-member aboard the SDF-3 in Sentinels). This necessitated the change of the movie character to B.D. Andrews. Edwards' initials were changed to T.R. See more
