Synopsis : It's the year 1999, and the Earth is embroiled in a Global War that is systematically destroying every country involved. The international conflict is brought to a sudden end when a giant alien spaceship crashlands on the South Pacific island of Macross. This evidence of an advanced extraterrestrial civilization brings with it fears of alien invasion and soon the world's leading scientists are united in investigating the stricken ship in a bid to understand the complex "Robotech" technology responsible for its construction and operation. It is believed such an understanding could be mankind's only defence against outside forces.
Ten years later, the damaged alien ship the Super Dimension Fortress One (SDF-1) has been restored and is preparing for its maiden flight amidst great global celebration. But the party is over almost as soon as it is started when another huge alien vessel appears in Earth's orbit. It is the first of a fleet of ships belonging to the warrior race of the Zentraedi. Intent on galactic conquest, the Zentraedi are determined to take control of the SDF-1 and to destroy the earth in the process. But, with their newly found understanding of Robotech, a small group of human pilots are prepared to fight back against the seemingly superior alien firepower.
