Synopsis: Making the world the way you want it: Robotech was never an original cartoon. You can not argue that...after all, it was three original cartoons.

See, it works like this. Carl Macek was no fool, and he was disappointed in the bastradization of Kagaku Ninja Tai Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets) in North America. So he decided he would import a anime series of his own choosing and have it adapted faithfully for the Western world.

The problem was his choice, he picked one of the best available on the market, Chôjikû Yôsai Macross but there were only 36 episodes made. 36 episodes is a little short of the standard 65 Episode syndication package that North American Television runs on, and syndication is where all the money is. Like I said before, Macek is no fool, so he took all 36 episodes of Macross and picked up two more series that have nothing to do with one another; Chôjikû kidan Southern Cross and Kikô sôseiki Mospeada and did something pretty unheard of. Macek connected the series as a grand epic of succeeding generations of characters in the series that are forced to fight three successive wars over an alien energy source called protoculture that the enemy is desperate to capture. Surprisingly this more than worked and a hit show with a huge cult following was born.

The Macross Saga - First Contact : Strap into your Veritech and get ready for the ride of your life! When a mysterious space battleship crashes onto Macross Island in the South Pacific, the future of mankind is changed forever.
