In the middle of World War III in 1999, an alien spaceship crashes on deserted Macross Island. In response to this event, a cease fire is declared as the ship reveals evidence of a potential extraterrestrial threat that could come to retrieve her. In response, the nations of the world unite to create the United Nations Space Navy (UN Spacy). In ten years, the ship is rebuilt as Super Dimensional Fortress One (SDF-1) and her technology is adopted for use. On the day of her formal launch, the Zentradi arrive determined to retrieve the ship intact. As Earth defends itself, we also see the personal lives of the ship's crew and residents as the war profoundly changes them. Meanwhile, the Zentradi learn that their enemy bears an uncomfortable resemble to their creators, the Protoculture, a fact which threatens to take this war down paths that no one can anticipate.Written by

There is a scene in the first episode that contains an animator's inside joke. Hikaru crashes his Valkyrie into a building marked "Studio Nue". This was the name of the animation studio that produced Macross. Studio Nue's mascot, a grinning imp creature, was also on the building. If you watch closely, you can see the imp react in horror as Hikaru careens toward the building. See more »
Due to the fact that at least three studios of wildly varying quality worked on each episode simultaneously, many minor continuity errors and animation inconsistencies (for instance in Ep. 3 "Spacefold" where the escape pod under Roy's Valk every so often switches to a gunpod) crop up in each episode.

My first Anime. I remember watching the RoboTECH version of this series as a child. Even with the horrible dubbing and scenes cut, at the age of 5 the story-line was addicting. I fell in love with the Valkyrie and commend them for the brilliant design. I remember being angry at Rick for not going after Minmei and choosing Lisa. To this day, I curse the creators of the show for making that happen. But when an television series starts to make you have feelings like that, actually giving a damn about the storyline, that's when you know it's a wonderful series.
