THE NEW GENERATION
Weary from constant battle with the Robotech Masters, the United Earth Forces eventually fell to the Invid Invasion. Lt Cmdr Scott Bernard leads a tight-knit team of freedom fighters towards the main Invid base located at Reflex Point.

Top Customer Reviews
As far as story goes, if you're reading this you've already seen this show. Each of the characters in the series are fleshed out nicely, even Mint, who is just worthless for the most part. Normally I do not latch on to the principal character as they tend to be the standard "goody goody" but not Scott Bernard. He has all the ear marks of a good leader, but he is too caught up in his deontology point of view to consider the other characters all too much. It's obvious he cares for them in his own way, but it struck me that he had a little too much of a machevellian viewpoint. That's my assessment 21 years later. When I first watched this show I was just happy Scott wasn't a pansy like Rick Hunter. I appreciated his sense of duty and his drive to fight for what he thought was right.
The other characters are archetypical, just as Scott is, and the next in line as far as fleshed out was Lancer. However, the creators of Robotech made absolutely no attempt to mask his voice when he was dressed as Yellow. Even his singing voice sounds like a gravely dude singing it. Mospeada (the Japanese show this part of Robotech was based on--just in case you're a Lunk) just flat-out uses a woman's voice with mixed success.
Everyone else is forgettable.
I do wish they would have ended the series better, but considering the source, it ended as well as it was going to.Read more ›
