Storyline

The Robotech Expeditionary Force stages their final assault on the Invid to liberate Earth at all costs along with REF pilot Scott Bernard and the Invid princess Ariel's parallel planetside efforts at the alien's stronghold, Reflex Point. Just before the attack, the fleet gets a distress call from Admiral Rick Hunter and their flagship, SDF-3. In the ensuing mission, which only manages to rescue the android Janice Em, the REF discover that they have been betrayed by their own ally, the Haydenites, whose powerful technology they have supplied now is revealed to be designed to devastatingly enable their own plans of conquest even as the Invid withdraw. As Scott and Ariel join the fleet, the disparate pair and Janice must overcome their comrade's deep distrust to find a means to stop their newest foe before it is too late.

Trivia

Originally announced as "Robotech: Shadow Force" by Harmony Gold at Anime Expo 2004. This was later changed due to the term "Shadow Force Megazord" having already been used in the series Power Rangers Time Force in 2001. See more »

Goofs

Approximately one hour into the movie, Vince Grant turns to Janice Em, Ariel, and Scott Bernard to ask, "Any idea what we're up against?" When seen in long shot with Grant in the foreground, Bernard is wearing a uniform. The camera cuts to a close-up, of the three, in which Bernard is wearing CVR-3 battle armor. In subsequent shots, Bernard is wearing the uniform again. See more »

The best news from the remake of BATTLESTAR GALANTIC.
27 March 2005 | by stanley_scheinenSee all my reviews

I've grown up being fascinated by ROBOTCH. I loved everything about it and wished I could be living in that world. I suppose that's what all kids do.

Seldomly have I seen a animation series so well written, and casted and I've seen a great many. I simply don't understand what took HG that long time to make a new serials. So, this time please give us a real unforgettable festa.

And, as a personal suggestion, I hope the new Shadow Force can present more realistic storyline -- darker. If you ever seen the surgent response of new BG serials, you would understand what I am talking, it all based on tightly written scripts and a darker edge to a truly promising TV series. This is a Brilliant idea to catch old fans and also new audience, isn't it? I hope HG have realized this already.
