                     ROBOTECH CHRONOLOGY

1999 Alien spaceship crash-lands on Earth, effectively ending

             almost a decade of Global Civil War.  Originally called
             "The Visitor," the ship is dubbed Super Dimensional
             Fortress I--the SDF-1.
             Dr. Emil Lang, after an initial recon of the ship (in the
             company of Roy Fokker, Henry Gloval, T.R. Edwards, and
             others), begins to unravel the secrets of an extraterres-
             trial science known as Robotech.
             Macross Island becomes the focal point of Robotechnology;
             and reconstruction commences on the SDF-1.
             In another part of the galaxy, Zor is killed by Invid
             soldiers during a Flower of Life seeding attempt. The
             Zentraedi Breetai is wounded during the same raid.
             Commander-in-chief Dolza orders Commander Reno to return
             Zor's body to the Robotech Masters on Tirol.
             Interstellar war with the Invid, whose homeworld, Optera,
             has been defoliated by the Zentraedi, continues to chip
             away at the fringes of the Masters' galactic empire.

             On Tirol, Cabell "creates" Rem by cloning tissue
             from Zor.  The Masters, too, have their way with
             Zor's body, cloning tissue for their own purposes
             and extracting from the scientist's residual
             cellular memories a vision of Earth--destination of
             the fortress and Protoculture matrix he has stolen
             and spirited from their grasp.

             Macross Island.  The fortress makes an accidental
             hyperspace jump to Pluto, carrying the island and
             its population of 75,000 along with it.  15-year-

2025 (Earth actual) The Invid Regent takes Tirol. Sickened by his

             bloodlust, the Regis leaves Optera for Praxis to
             carry on with her Genesis Pit experiments.
             The Robotech Expeditionary Force arrive in
             Fantomaspace and engages the Invid; the fortress's
             spacefold generators are damaged. (the REF is
             unaware that the fold has taken five Earth-years,
             and believe the date to be 2020.)  T.R. Edwards and
             his Ghost Squadron capture the living computer the
             Regent has left behind in Tiresia's Royal Hall. 
             Tiresians Cabell and Rem inform the Plenipotentiary
             Council that the Robotech Masters are on their way
             to Earth.
             The Sentinels, comprised of Praxians, Garudans,
             Karbarrans, Haydonites, Spherisians, and
             Perytonians, formed to liberate planets recently
             conquered and occupied by the Invid horde, arrive
             in Tirolspace on the ship Farrago requesting aid in
             their cause.
             Tesla, Master Scientist to the Invid Regent, is a
             prisoner aboard the Farrago.
             The Zentraedi contingent of the REF agree to be
             returned to full size (except for Exedore) to mine
             Fantoma for monopole ore to fuel a new fleet of
             warships.
             The Hunters, Grants, Sterlings, and others leave
             Fantomaspace for Karbarra aboard the Farrago.
             On Earth, Senator Wyatt Moran and the commanders of
             the Army of the Southern Cross consolidate their
             power and take control of the Supreme Council.
             Dana and Bowie grow up under the care of the
             Emersons.

2026 (Earth actual) Karbarra is liberated. Tesla and Burak form a

             curious partnership.  The Sentinels' ship Farrago
             is destroyed and the Groundbased Mobile Unit is
             stranded on Praxis shortly after the Regis's
             leavetaking for Haydon IV.  Wolff, Janice Em, Burak,
             and Tesla reach the only fold module available in
             orbit around Praxis and fold towards Fantoma.  The
             rest of the Sentinels are in the remaining veritechs
             without power in orbit around the dying planet
             Praxis. Death of Baldan I.
             T.R. Edwards holds secret talks with the Regent,
             and begins a personal campaign to capture Lynn-
             Minmei.
             An Invid simulagent in the guise of the Regent is
             sent to Tirol for "peace talks" and reveals to the
             REF that the Farrago has been destroyed.  The
             Sentinels are presumed dead.
             Wolff and Janice Em return to Tirol and is refused
             a rescue ship to Praxis to pick up the surviving
             Sentinels.  The Invid Tesla murders the simulagent
             sent to Tirol by the Regent.
             Wolff "steals" the prototype warship, the SDF-7,
             and arrives just in time to pick up the Sentinels
             before the destruction of Praxis.  They continue on
             to Garuda.
             T.R. Edwards begins to hold sway over the REF's
             Plenipotentiary Council.  Wolff is accused of murder
             and piracy.  Control of the Fantoma mining
             operations goes to Edwards.
             Rick, Lisa, Rem and Karen are captured on Garuda
             and are interrogated and exposed to the planets
             fatal atmosphere.  Mistaken as Zor, Rem is taken to
             Optera for the Regent.  Later, Rem is sent as a gift
             to the Regis on Haydon IV.  With Garuda liberated,
             Rick, Lisa, and Karen are rescued and are rushed to
             Haydon IV for the only medication available in the
             known galaxy.
             The Valivarre, under the command of Breetai, leaves
             Tirolspace (unauthorized) with the much needed
             monopole ore for the fleet's warships.  The SDF
             class warships Tokugawa and Jutland are sent after
             Breetai.

2027 (Earth actual) The Sentinels arrive at Haydon IV shortly after the

             Regis's leavetaking, and "surrender" to the
             occupying Invid troops.  Rem learns he is actually
             a clone of Zor.  Upon the liberation of Haydon IV,
             Janice Em reveals herself to be an android.  Rem is
             rescued and Sarna is killed.  Haydon IV is
             liberated.
             The prototype SDF-7 is christened the Ark Angel.

             are updated on the situation on Tirol.
             The Valivarre returns to Tirolspace escorted by the
             SDF class cruisers Tokugawa and Jutland after the
             Sentinels decision to continue their mission to
             Spheris instead of returning to Tirol to deal with
             the threat of Edwards to the Plenipotentiary
             Council.  Edwards loses his grip on the council
             after troops sent out to hunt down the Zentraedi
             side with them instead.  Wolff, Breetai, and Grant
             clear the Sentinels of all charges.

             lost when the ship fails to report in to the SDF-3.
             Edwards and his Ghost Riders flee Tirol on a
             hijacked SDF-7 class ship for Optera, taking Lynn-
             Minmei and the awakened Invid living computer from

             of body armor and reconfigurable cycles, known as
             Cyclones.
             A new protoculture hand weapon is developed, the
             Mars Gallant H90 blaster.

2031 (Earth actual) Dana Sterling and Bowie Grant turn 18, graduate from

             the Academy, and are assigned to the 15th Alpha
             Tactical Armored Corps, which includes Sean
             Phillips, Angelo Dante, and Louie Nichols.
             The Robotech Masters arrive in Earthspace to
             retrieve Zor's Protoculture matrix found in the SDF-
             1 for the survival of their race and the Second
             Robotech War begins.
             Dana Sterling is promoted to 2nd Lieutenant after
             ex-c.o. Sean Phillips was reduced to the rank of
             private.

             Battle at Fokker Aerospace Base.  Dana is promoted
             to 1st lieutenant after mobilizing the 15th (without
             authorization) and leaving their post to be a back
             up contingency to the forces already being defeated
             at the base.  Dana has her first encounter with the
             red Bioroid.
             Dana, Bowie, and Angelo volunteer for the mission
             to re-establish communications with Space Station
             Liberty.
             Dana and Bowie sees Zor Prime for the first time at
             the site of the SDF-1.  They are discovered and
             Bowie is captured.

2031 (cont) Dana leads an unauthorized rescue mission, disguised

             as a routine night patrol, for Bowie.
             Louie Nichols of the 15th discovers a weakness in
             the Robotech ships and a mission is prepared.  The
             Robotech Masters flagship is crippled and crashes
             near Monument city.
             The Army of the Southern Cross converges on the
             fallen Robotech ship but all actions are harmless
             against the ship.  Lieutenant Marie Crystal of the
             Tactical Armored Space Corp is wounded in battle
             and is rescued by Sean Phillips.
             The 15th is ordered to enter the alien ship for a
             recon mission.  The squad is separated and Bowie
             meets Musica.  Dana and Louie discovers that the
             inhabitants of the alien ships are not androids but
             clones.  With the 15th together again, Dana captures
             a Bioroid and is examined with the utmost care by
             Professor Zand.
             Another ship from the Robotech Masters' fleet
             descends to Earth and lifts its' fallen comrade back
             to orbit.
             Major Carpenter's ships arrive at Earth and futilely
             tries to engage the Robotech Masters but are them-
             selves obliterated.  Survivors are picked up by the
             15th.
             Zor Prime is introduced to the 15th.  Unknown to
             him and the 15th, he is used as a spy for the
             Masters.
             Musica rejects her chosen mate Karno.

2032 (Earth actual) The new Armored Jet Attack Copter VT's are produced

             and readied for the 1st attack wave against the
             alien ships.  The attack wave is crippled badly and
             takes refuge on Moon Base ALUCE.
             On Earth, Dana and Bowie go to the site of the SDF-
             1 and witness the blossoming of the Flower of Life
             in the SDF-1's reflex engines.
             A second wave is prepared and General Emerson is to
             be the commanding officer of the mission giving a
             chance to the survivors of the first wave to return
             to Earth with their wounded.

2032 (cont) Louie Nichols' Visual Trace Firing System is

             integrated into the VT's weapons systems without his
             consent.
             The ATAC's are ordered to break through the alien
             flag ship's defenses and attempt to destroy it from
             the inside.  Zor, now under the power of the
             Robotech Masters, turns on the 15th and tries to
             capture the squad but the 15th scatters and
             separately explores the entire ship.  Bowie finds
             Musica again and both fall in love.  Eventually,
             the 15th is captured but are freed by Musica.  Zor
             is taken to the Memory Management Lab to be
             reprogrammed.  The 15th bursts in and interrupts
             the process during the reinstatement of his
             memory.  Zor destroys the core of the ship's power
             causing the destruction of the ship and the 15th
             leaves the alien ship with their hovertanks with
             Musica.  Somehow, Zor manages to escape unscathed. 
             The Robotech Masters transfer to a different ship
             to continue their mission for the matrix.
             General Emerson's flagship is destroyed and he,
             Lieutenant Crystal, and Lieutenant Dennis Brown are
             taken prisoner by the Robotech Masters.
             Nova Satori of the Global Military Police orders
             the arrest and apprehension of the "alien" Musica
             for questioning but is unable to find her.  Bowie
             has taken her to the site of the SDF-1 to see the
             Flowers of Life.  The 15th follows their trail, in
             turn Nova follows the 15th, and in turn again Zor
             follows Nova.  Zor sees the Flowers of Life and his
             memory reawakens and he becomes the original Zor.
             The Robotech Masters bargain with Emerson's party
             for Zor and Musica to be returned to the Masters.
             The Masters flagship descends towards the site of
             the SDF-1, hoping to retrieve the matrix before it
             mutates into the Flower of Life, then rendering the
             matrix useless. 
             All forces of the planet join at Monument City for
             a final battle against the Masters.  In result,
             Monument City is leveled and there are no survivors. 
             Commander Leonard and staff are also killed.
             The Masters are killed by Zor and Dana has a vision
             of the coming of the Invid, telepathically commun-
             icated to her by her sister, Aurora.

2032 (cont) The 15th, Marie, Dennis, and the remaining clone

             population of the Masters leave the doomed ship in
             transports and lands near the SDF-1 site.
             Zor Prime's attempt at destroying the Masters'
             flagship results in the loosing of the Flowers of
             Life from the Protoculture matrix concealed within
             the spacefold drives of the buried SDF-1; spores
             cover the planet and the Flower takes root, alerting
             the Regis's sensor nebula.
             General Emerson, Octavia (one of Musica's
             Triumverate sisters), Zor Prime, and Lazlo Land
             dies.
             End of the Second Robotech War.
             Max, Miriya, and Aurora Sterling arrive on Tirol
             from Haydon IV.
             The Invid "disappear" from Tirol's corner of the
             galaxy.  It is assumed that the Regis has begun her
             move against Earth.
             The Mars Veritech Group leaves Tirol with 18-year-
             old Scott Bernard aboard.
             Jonathan Wolff's ship returns to Earth.  An anti-
             Invid underground is established before the Regis
             arrives.  Dana commandeers Wolff's ship after the
             drives are retrofitted with a device perfected by
             former 15th ATAC whiz-kid, Louie Nichols.
             The Robotech factory satellite returns to Earthspace
             from Tirol.
             Optera is fully seeded with the Flowers of Life and
             given over to the homeless Praxians, who rename the
             planet "New Praxis."  The Flowers become the crop
             for a new Protoculture matrix created by Rem, who
             has managed to tap his progenitor's--Zor's--
             memories.

2033 (Earth actual) The Invid Regis arrives. Her newly hatched army of

             soldiers and mecha destroy the factory satellite and
             easily defeat Earth's depleted defenses.  Hives and
             farms are set up worldwide, and some Terran captives
             are forced to work in labor camps, harvesting
             Flowers and processing nutrient for use in the
             Regis's Terror Weapons and battlecraft.

2034 (Earth actual) Admiral Lisa Hayes resumes command of the SDF-3.

             Arrival of Dana Sterling on Tirol.  With her are
             Bowie Grant, Sean Phillips, Angelo Dante, Musica and
             Allegra, and some of the Masters' clones.
             Shadow Fighters and neutron "S" missiles are
             developed by the REF for the assault against Earth. 
             Instantaneous spacefold becomes a reality for the
             main-fleet ships.
             Arrival and defeat of the Mars Attack Group sent by
             the REF.
             Scott's fiancee, Marlene Rush, dies with the Mars
             Group flagship.
             Scott Bernard crashlands on Earth, but continues
             his mission:  To reach the Regis's central hive
             complex, code named Reflex Point.
             Upon crossing a desert on his Cyclone, he meets
             Rand, who has just discovered the fallen flagship
             from the Mars Group and was joy riding on a newly
             acquired Cyclone when Invid scouts appeared.  Scott
             engages the scouts and destroys them easily with the
             Cyclone's configurable armor.
             Scott and Rand approach Laacko City where they pick
             up Annie.  The population of the city turned them
             over to the Invid Shock Troopers, but with the help
             of a mysterious red Cyclone rider, the Shock
             Troopers were dispatched.  The red Cyclone rider
             disappears.
             Scott and company enter a dust-ridden town and
             attends a club where they see and meet the famous
             singer Yellow Dancer.  A brawl breaks out and Scott
             ends it quickly with a shot from his blaster.  Here
             they meet the mysterious red Cyclone rider, Rook
             Bartley, former of the bike gang, the Blue Angels. 
             Her, Lancer (a male robotech freedom fighter in the
             guise of a female singer, Yellow Dancer), and Lunk
             (a former robotech bio-maintenance engineer) join
             Scott on his journey to Reflex Point.  Lunk provides
             Scott with a fully maintained and operational Alpha
             fighter.
             Scott's band of freedom fighters discover that the
             Invid can sense the presence of Protoculture
             emanations.

2034 (cont) Scott's team makes a pit stop at Norristown. Using

             a Yellow Dancer Concert as a diversion, the team
             makes away with a truck load of canisters of
             Protoculture--fuel for their Robotech mecha.
             One night, Rook returns to her home town to settle
             a dispute which has troubled her ever since she
             left.  Unknowingly to her, Rand is curious and
             follows.  She has a showdown with the leader of the
             Red Snakes who have harassed the town ever since
             her ex-boyfriend--Romy--had disbanded the Blue
             Angels.
             The team approaches Roca Negra.  Lunk tries to
             fulfill a promise to a friend by returning a book
             to his father, Alfred Nader, an intelligent man who
             spoke out against the Invid slavery, was killed by
             the townspeople in fear of him endangering the town.
             The team encounters Colonel Wolff and his anti-Invid
             underground.  For months, Wolff has been giving
             Robotech soldiers to the Invid in exchange for
             canisters of Protoculture.  Realizing his grave
             mistake in his actions, Wolff, in Scott's VT, aids
             the team in a short skirmish with the Invid and is
             mortally wounded.  Colonel Jonathan Wolff dies.
             The Regis performs clonings in Genesis Pits (similar
             to those on Praxis) to acquire the ultimate form her
             Invid should take for their new life on Earth.
             Scott, Rand, and Annie, while on a scouting mission,
             discover one of the Regis's Genesis Pits.  During
             an earthquake, the Genesis Pit is destroyed with all
             the life forms evolved in it.
             The simulagent Ariel (cloned from a female human
             body found in a wreckage of the Mars Division
             flagship) is birthed and is planted in the route
             Scott's team is heading.
             The team approach Point K, a rendezvous for all
             surviving units of Scott's invasion force,
             consisting of close to a thousand veritechs, ground
             units, assault mecha, supplies, and ammunitions. 
             But instead of finding a base, they find a graveyard
             of ships.  The Invid had already obliterated all
             forces at Point K.  The team enters the area in
             search for ordinance but Scott goes in to seclusion. 
             Rand and Rook scout the area and finds Ariel at a
             nearby town.  Ariel, similar to a newborn child,
             has not learned to speak.  Rand and Rook assumes her
             to be in shock.  Lunk and Lancer discover two
             operational Alpha fighters and one intact Beta
             fighter among the wreckage.  The group comes
             together to report their findings and Ariel is given
             the name Marlene by Scott for she is in the likeness
             of his deceased fiancee, Marlene Rush.

2034 (cont) The team approaches a mountain range and is quickly

             warned by the nearby town, Deguello, that the ranges
             are constantly patrolled because of the Invid
             fortress built there.  A map of the secret routes
             to pass through the patrols were sold, but through
             Lancer's old time girlfriend, Carla, she reveals to
             him that the maps are fake and the citizens who buy
             and follow the map were going to their dooms.
             To attack the fortress, the Living Brain must be
             destroyed to prevent the detection of incoming
             Robotech mecha.  Rand and Annie volunteer and
             successfully deactivates the Brain and the fortress
             is destroyed nearly trapping Scott and his veritech
             inside before the explosion.
             The Regis loses contact with the simulagent Ariel
             in result of interacting with humans and their
             emotions.
             Rand, caught in a sandstorm, inhales pollen from
             the Flower of Life and learns of the real reason
             why the Regis is on Earth.
             The team enters a jungle forest region once
             controlled by the Zentraedi during the Malcontent
             Uprisings.  Micronian slaves were used then and the
             inhabitants now have been reduced to primitive
             levels.  Lancer, mistaken as a woman, is kidnapped. 
             The team rescues Lancer and rids the valley of Invid
             Shock Troopers.  They make rafts to go down stream
             past an Invid hive but Annie stays behind as a
             jungle queen.
             Scott's team enters an old abandoned city but are
             followed by the Invid.  After taking refuge in an
             old subway, the Invid caves in the subway exits in
             hopes of burying the Robotech rebels.  Upon escap-
             ing, Annie rejoins the team.
             Prince Corg and Princess Sera are transmutated to
             human form and are ordered to go  out and seek the
             simulagent Ariel for the cause of her disfunction.

2034 (cont) The team finds a few left over naval ships from the

             Second Robotech War to cross the Gulf of Mexico. 
             They set a trap for the Invid patrols and Rook is
             wounded in the battle.
             The team takes a rest at a once beautiful beach
             resort.  Lancer has a run in with the Invid Princess
             Sera and reports to Scott that the Invid are using
             human pilots for their mecha.  Sera is disturbed by
             her first encounter with the human emotions in her
             created by Lancer.
             Sera prepares an ambush for the rebels in a high
             mountain-pass near Baja California.  Upon seeing
             Lancer's face, Sera hesitates a moment too soon to
             give the order to fire and the rebels escape. Sera
             encounters Ariel for the first time.
             Scott's team encounters one of the ships and its
             crew from Major Carpenter's defeated fleet from
             Tirol.  The ship and crew boldly sacrifice them-
             selves in destroying an Invid hive.  All crew are
             presumed dead.
             The team enters the Rocky Mountains and finds the
             city of Denver (but really a secret underground
             shelter named Delta Six) buried beneath the ice. 
             They resupply and explore the city.  Scott and
             Marlene fall in love.  While he searches for the
             rebels, Corg discovers them in the city and attacks. 
             The team successfully escapes and self-destructs the
             power center in the city and buries the city once
             again.  Corg encounters Ariel for the first time.
             The team holds a surprise birthday party for Annie.
             The team runs into Dusty Ayres, a human specimen
             the Invid used to experiment on, replacing his
             entire right side with Protoculture-generated organs
             without the use of any anesthetics, while his
             friends stood by and watched.  He wages war on all
             Robotech soldiers and Scott rounds up a posse to
             hunt for him until the Invid attacks.  With some
             encouragement from Rook, Dusty aids Scott in the
             battle and is killed.
             The liberation of the city of Mannattan (formerly
             New York City).  Sera encounters Ariel again and
             asks her why she hasn't reported to the Regis.
