Ten years later, the ship is rebuilt and its advanced Robotechnology is applied to the Earth army's weapons and vehicles. At the launching ceremony of the alien ship, called the SDF-1, a group of aliens called the Zentraedi attack. Rick Hunter is caught in the middle of it and joins the Robotech Defense Forces to defend the ship from alien invaders. 2ND SERIES: THE ROBOTECH MASTERS SAGA (episodes #37-60) 2029-2030 15 years after the final battle with the Zentradei, a new threat looms as the Robotech Masters, the creators of Robotechnology and the genetic engineers of the Zentraedi come to Earth.

Pilot movie for an all-new animated Robotech series that wasn't meant to be. (Available only in the Robotech Legacy 3 collectors DVD set) Robotech The Movie: The Untold Story (1986 Cannon Pictures) Takes place before episode #37. Uses scenes from "Megazone 23 (a 1985 OAV series)" and "Southern Cross". This movie was rushed and poorly made, so Carl Macek and Harmony Gold do not consider it part of the continuity. It will likely never be released to the public again. Also available: Robotech the Perfect Soundtrack Album 2 CD set (1996) Contains all the background music and songs used in the Robotech series.
