Storyline

In the 21st century, Earth is invaded and quickly subdued by a alien race called the Inbit. Years after a failed liberation attempt by the Mars station's forces, a second Terran attack is attempted with a force armed with new weapons vastly superior to the enemy, but again Inbit defenses prove to be too strong. One of the few survivors to reach Earth is Stick Bernard, a young mecha fighter pilot who witnessed the death of his fiancé in the battle. Separated and alone, the aggrieved pilot sets out to attempt to complete his mission to find Reflex Point, the suspected Inbit headquarters, and do what he can to destroy it. Along the way, he meets up others who join to form a small guerrilla unit who must find their way to Reflex Point and stop the Inbit. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

According to the show's creators, Ray is partially telepathic. In earlier versions of the storyline this was much more predominant. However it is still present in the series as it was made, which explains the bizarre hallucination that he has at one point (which revealed several true facts of the Inbit's history and purpose) and his inexplicable understanding of what the "genesis pit" they fell into was for.

Alternate Versions

A heavily edited version of this series was used as the final third of the television series "Robotech" (1985), and in that context is commonly referred to as the "New Generation" saga. See more »

Not as good as Robotech: The New Generation
28 May 2004 | by Nic_hseSee all my reviews

I enjoyed watching the Mospeada series but it's shallow compared to it's Robotech counterpart (Robotech:The New Generation (TNG)). Robotech:TNG is a small part of much larger epic saga. Mospeada on the other hand doesn't have that depth or build up. The plot is very shallow by comparison. Aliens called the Inbit invade Earth and plan to make it their new home. It's a story that's been done to death. At least in Robotech:TNG the reasons and background story of the alien Invid are explained better. In fact the explanation of the Invid invasion is told in the second saga. Long before Robotech:TNG. That's where the Robotech saga shows it's depth over any of the original three Japanese series. There is so much more background story in Robotech. In Mospeada not much is explained about the home world of the invaders. Also the Japanese have a thing for goofy names. Man are their (Mospeada) names horrible! C'mon, Stig Bernard? What the hell kind of name is Stig? Mint Rubble? Houquet Emrose? Geez man.

Almost all of the Robotech names were big improvements over the originals. Let's compare some of them:

Stig (stick) Bernard (Mospeada) - Scott Bernard (Robotech)

Mint Rubble (Mospeada) - Annie (Robotech) ('Mint' was a nick name)

Yellow Belmont(Mospeada) - Lancer (Robotech)(Yellow Dancer was an alias)

Houquet Emrose (Mospeada) - Rook Bartley (Robotech)

Rainy Boy (Mospeada)(Fruity name for a Killer) - Dusty Aires (Robotech)

Batra (Mospeada) (Sounds too feminine for a male. Yep, it's a guy) - Corg (Robotech)

I like the names Rey and Jim Austin from Mospeada. They are two of the few characters they managed to give decent names to. The creators must have been sober when thought these names up. Thank goodness.

The Robotech actors were great. Couldn't have been better. The Mospeada actors are just what you would expect from Japanese actors. A lot of over acting especially from the women. I'd take the Robotech cast any day over Mospeada's. To correct the previous reviewer: Robotech:TNG is not an 'Edit' of Mospeada. It's has a unique and more complex background story. Robotech:TNG is part of a much larger series and has more depth because of it.

Seriously though it's good series but it doesn't beat the Robotech version in anyway. Mospeada did a horrid job on the names and several other things in the series. It didn't hamper my enjoyment of it because I was able to look past them. If you can't tolerate Japanese actors and the goofy names; check out Robotech instead. I think Robotech improved all of the three original series from which it was based. Especially the plot and characters. There is no contest for me. It's Robotech all the way. Mospeada today is almost forgotten while Robotech is making a come back. Not that Robotech was ever dead. The comics never stopped.

Watch the 86 episodes of the Robotech series first and then hunt down the original 3 series. Beware though. After watching Robotech you may not want to bother to watch the original 3 Japanese series.
