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.

During the exposition phase in the opening Star Wars style text scroll, the word "Technology" is divided and hyphenated due to the entire word not fitting at the end of the line ("Technol-" on the former line and "ogy" on the next). This is not considered proper form and in the Star Wars scrolls, the words are simply spaced apart appropriately so that each line is uniform in length, avoiding the necessity to divide any words at the margin. In typeset terminology, this is called the "Justified alignment". Also, the word "technology" is more properly divided as "Techo-logy". See more
