Based on the hit animated sci-fi series of the 1980s, this trade paperback is the first of six volumes that will reprint the original Robotech series. After an alien spacecraft crash-lands on Earth, the world begins to prepare itself for an invasion. Studying the fallen spaceship, humans build their own armada of biomechanical fighter ships in hopes of being able to combat the upcoming assault. But when the battle begins, it turns into a war that no one could have expected. Employing drama, romance, and strong character development, Robotech transcends simple action stories and becomes a tale of human perseverance.
