To create Robotech (1985), the early sci-fi epic that helped to foster an audience for Japanese animation in America, producers at Harmony Gold edited together three unrelated series: Super Dimension Fortress: Macross, Genesis Climber Mospeada, and Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross. "Dana's Story," which begins the Robotech Masters (Southern Cross) adventure, opens 15 years after the previous episode ended. The daughter of Earthling Max Sterling and Zentraedi pilot Miriya (who married in episode 25), spunky Dana Sterling quickly becomes a squadron commander during the Second Robotech War. Serving with her are brooding musician Bowie Grant, corps Casanova Sean Philips, and no-nonsense Marie Crystal. The Robotech Masters attack Earth, hoping to recapture the mysterious Protoculture factory, which was hidden in the flying fortress SDF-1 centuries earlier: they need the Protoculture to maintain control over their oligarchic civilization. But the Masters cannot control Zor Prime, a clone of the inventor of Protoculture, whom Dana captures. This interplanetary struggle is complicated by the mutual attraction between Bowie and the alien Musica, "the Mistress of the Cosmic Harp." The Robotech Masters story line is as convoluted as the Macross continuity, the pacing as slow and the dialogue as wooden. American viewers either love or hate Robotech, with little middle ground. The supplementary disc offers less material than the previous three: openings and closings of the component series, galleries of model sheets and comic book covers, and two clips in five languages. Unrated; suitable for ages 8 and up: Mild violence restricted to spaceship and robot battles. --Charles SolomonFrom the Back Cover:
