Welcome to the Robotechlan.com ROBOTECH page
What is Robotech:
In 1985, a Japanese animation by the name of Robotech was released.
Around this time, such shows as Voltron and Transformers were
very popular. Robotech took a step beyond those shows by getting
rid of the "pokemon" effect; where there is the very same villian,
battling the same heroes. There was finally a full story, people
being killed, different villians taking the stage at different
times, with different heroes.
Robotech is actually the composite of three different stories
pulled together by Carl Macek. The first set of episodes was
originally from the Macross series. The second and third stories
were completely unrelated to Macross in all ways. Carl, through
his genius, was able to bring them all together into the series
that we know as Robotech.
Part 1: The Macross Saga
In 1999, the world was at war. The world was on the brink of
annilation. Out of deep space, a large fortress arrived on earth.
It destroyed many things, including cities. It crashed in the
Pacific on Macross Island. Here, the surviving world populus
had a combined effort to resurrect the space fortress. 10 years
later, they had restored the Super Dimensional Fortress 1 (SDF-1
for short). The fortress had not left deep space unnoticed.
For years, a warrior race known as the Zentradi had searched
for the SDF-1. Now they had found it on earth and they wanted
Enter Rick Hunter, Lisa
Hayes, and Lynn Minmei and their love triangle. So is this
story really about life and death human vs alien struggle or
chicks fighting over a man? Watch it and decide..
Part 2: Southern Cross
Rick Hunter and Lisa Hunter (yes they got
married in the Sentenels), leave and go off to find the homeworld
of the Robotech Masters. Little did they know, the masters had
their own plan and decided to come visit the Earth instead.
Enter Dana Sterling and her band of rag
tag soldiers who have to defeat the Bioroids. But here comes
Zor, the producer of the Protoculture. Yes.. thats right.. another
Part 3: The Next Generation
You'd think they would have picked a better
name! I tell ya!
Now everyone from the previous two parts
are OLD. The invid have taken over the Earth and now enter some
rebels who work together to move towards Reflex Point to try
to defeat the queen of the Invid and send her ass packing. However,
Marlene enters the picture and the mushy stuff gets going again.
However, this series rocks and is amoung my favorate. There
is just so much adventure and change of scenery.
