Trivia The film combines anime footage from the direct-to-video Megazone 23 (1985) and Super Dimensional Cavalry: Southern Cross (1984), which was the second part of the Robotech television series. See more »
Goofs 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 »
