Storyline

Based upon the strategy war game and set during events in the Blood of Kerensky Trilogy by Michael Stackpole, a small independent unit lead by Maj. Adam Steiner fights their way to their home planet of Somerset when news of an army of mysterious invaders calling themselves the Clans begin to conquer world after world in their ultimate goal to take Terra. The First Somerset Strikers, as the unit is called, is assigned to take the fight to the Clans and learn as much of the invaders as they can, all the while being pursued by an obsessive Clan Jade Falcon warrior named Nicholai Malthus.

Trivia

Episode 6 "Protect and Survive" suffers from the above mentioned Battlemech limitations, changing Prince Victor's 'Mech from the Victor-class he was named after to a Mauler, and Galen Cox's Crusader to a Centurion. The latter is understandable, as at the time, Battletech's creators, FASA Corporation, were in legal entanglements with Harmony Gold, the creators of "Robotech" (1985) due to the use of several 'Mech designs borrowed from "Chôjikû yôsai Macross" (1982), one of the source shows in Robotech.

A great animated TV Show
24 October 2006 | by rhsxoSee all my reviews

I remember watching this show when I was a kid. Me and my friend would wake up really early just to watch it. We we always into Mechwarrior, the RPG and the video game on the SNES.

From what I can remember about the show was very limited. I remember it was talking about Clan Jade Falcon attacking Summerset, and that the main character had an Axmen Mech, that was stolen by a bad guy (I think). That was about all I remember from the show.

After downloading all the episodes off of the internet, I began to remember all of them. I now remember loving the 3D portion of the show. Me and my friend thought it was so cool when it was in the 3D mode. That was the fist cartoon that I ever remember using that technology.

Well, anyways, even all these years later, it is still a really good show. I still cant believe that they only made 13 episodes. Maybe being a kid, those 13 episodes turned into 50 episodes for me because all I remember is just loving every moment it was on TV.
