Okay, there are many of us who wish that the Sentinels (flawed as it is) had been completed.  Well I’m about to post the ORIGINAL SYNOPSIS for the Sentinels series as detailed in the book Robotech Art #3, by Carl Macek.

As those of you who have read the novels will notice, there are some differences between what was originally planned and what takes place in the books.

I will divide this into 21 post.  Hopefully by the time I get to the point to where Rick starts using his “psychic powers (no joke), you’ll be happy that it was never completed as planned.

(P.S.- I reread through the TOU to see if this would violate anything, and it seems okay.  But if it’s not I’m sure some admin will come along and slap me in the back of the head.)

Some parts will be edited for time/space.

Locations: Earth Robotech Factory, moon of Fantoma


Rick hunter and company enter a space shuttle and prepare for a trip into space to rendezvous with [the] Robotech Factory to check on progress of construction of [the] SDF-3 and to stage [a] wedding on board the ship prior to the launch of the Robotech Expeditionary Force.

During the journey to the Factory, Dr Lang is told that he will be in charge of the REF.  They talk about the need to present a diplomatic solution to the problem instead of a military solution-if at all possible.  Exedore talks about his feelings concerning the RT Masters-his hope is that they will be able to listen to reason.

Most of the women have arranged a meeting to discuss the details of Lisa’s impending wedding with Rick.

The arrival at the Robotech Factory.

The introduction of Jack as a Cadet studying at the Robotech Factory.  He is impressed at seeing such an important group getting off the shuttle.

The group inspects the construction of the SDF-3 and comments on the fact that it is important to perform the hyper-space warp from space-they comment on what happened when the SDF-1 ripped a small island from the surface of the earth during the fold operation.

The introduction of the Micronized Breetai! (A dark day for RT fans everywhere. -Blaq)

The star chart as Exedore tells of the location of the homeworld of the RT Masters.  The cast speculates as to what they will expect on the homeworld of the RT Masters.

Visual segue to the Homeworld of the RT Masters.  The locale is similar in architecture to that of the cities inside the ships of the “Robotech Masters” (Zuro ships in the Southern Cross Series).  There are very few signs of life in the streets.  The camera shows that the people on the planet seem bored and uninterested in life.

The only activity on the planet comes from the laboritory of Cabell and his young assistant, Rem, Cabell is a scientist who was left behind by the RT Masters because he was on the verge of discovering the secret to protoculture-this is the subject of the conversation between Rem and Cabell. (And what?  He couldn’t continue his experiments aboard one of the RT Masters fortresses? -Blaq)

The Defense system of the RT Masters’ army of Bioroid Invid Fighters is activated.  (Funny, since that Invid Fighter Bioroid wasn’t developed until mid-Southern Cross saga.  -Blaq)

The Invid attack the moon of Fantoma-Cabell and Rem run to safety taking with [them] the small animals known as “Cha Cha” (That’s the most original name they could come up with?  That’s got to go into my worst name for an alien species list.  -Blaq)-animals which Cabell thinks hold the secret to protoculture-many of the RT Masters have nicknamed these creatures “The children of Zor.”  Rem does not understand why Cabell does not stop to fight the Invid.  Cabell tells him that there is much at stake and does not wish to have the Invid learn of his experiments.

The Invid attack is quite brutal.  They destroy the defenses of the Robotech Masters (much in the same way as the Invid destroyed the Earth in the First Episode of Mospeada).

The Invid Regent is introduced as he surveys his Invid Horde’s latest conquest.  The Regent request a complete search for protoculture and any blossoming plants of the mysterious FoL.

Cabell and Rem watch the conquest of their planet from the safety of a hidden chamber in his laboratory.  They feel as though they are doomed.

(Thank God only the first 10 episode summaries are this detailed.  I’d go crazy if all 40 of them were like this.  -Blaq)

On board the RFS, Rick takes a few minutes from his schedule to view a training session of the RDF.  He notices one student-Jack Baker.  he is impressed by his skill.  Following the reaining exercise, Rick talks to jack.  Jack is flattered to be approached by the famous hero of the First RT War.  He has little to say however, preffering to be excused to continue his studies.  Rick percieves thia as strange behavior but he is met by Max Sterling and the conversation turns toward his upcoming marriage.

Lisa is trying on her wedding gown.  She is talking to Jean Grant and Miriya Sterling.  Dana and Bowie are playing in the background.

Minmei and Janice come to wish the bride good luck and ask her to select a song for them to sing at her wedding.

Dr. Lang and Exedore are trying to head a planning session for the Formation of the REF.  They listen to various arguments about the use of a first strike against the RT Masters.

Back on the moon of Fantoma, the Invid Enforcers are assembling the survivors of the Invid attack on the forces of the RT Masters.  The prisoners of war are not very impressive.  They are either quite young adolescents or aged and weak people.  [They] are not strong brave warriors.  It is a point which confuses the Invid Regent.  He is trying to make sense of the whereabouts of the RT Masters and their alleged Protoculture Factory (the legendary SDF-1 from the original RT series).  It it too much of a puzzle for the Regent to unravel at this time.

A report of the presence of protoculture (Typing that word is starting to annoy me.  I’m just going to start being lazy and using “PC” in it’s place.  -Blaq) from some distant planet causes the Regent to call for his Invid horde to prepare to leave.  Before he goes he brings out his Occupation Army-a division of lifeless machines-The Inorganics-programmed by the Regwent to act as a police force on the moon until he returns to exploit his conquered planet.

Cabell and Rem are still hidden in the secret chamber and are watching the progress of the Invid and the introduction of the Inorganics.  One element of the Inorganic force are “Cougars”-mechanical animals which are deployed to “sniff” out any hidden pockets of protoculture or citizens which have avoided capture up to this point.

The Invid leave the moon of Fantoma in the control of the Inorganics.  They are all controlled by a central living organism (a huge pink “brain” as seen in Mospeada Episode #12-a plot point which will connect the two series in a subtle way).  They also leave a small detachment of Invid to patrol the surrounding area in case the RT Masters return unexpectedly.

Rem and Cabell realize that they must do something fast if they are to remain free.

(Wow, this is taking forever to type. -Blaq)

Dr. Lang is in the RT Research Lab on board the RFS.  He is discussing the upcoming mission of the REF with his colleague and old friend Dr. Penn.  They are discussing the new designs of the Alpha Fighter which is still in prototype stage.

Keren Penn interupts the informal meeting to talk to her father.  She is hoping that he will put in a good word for her to be included on the roster of cadets which will be accompanying the REF into hyper-space.

Dr. Lang takes notice of Karen.  She thinks that she might be able to take advantage of Lang’s interest.  He invites her to come with him to the wedding of Rick and Lisa.

jack is studying in his room, alone, when he receives a message.  it is an invitation to the wedding of Rick and Lisa.  There is also a personal note attached from Rick who notes that he would be grateful if Jack would come.

Rick and Max are talking about Jack.  Rick says that Jack reminds him of himself when he was a young pilot.  He feels that Jack is troubled, as he was, and Rick would like to be of some help to him (much in the same way as Roy Fokker had helped Rick during the First RT War).

Cabell and Rem are watching the progress of the “Cougar” as it prowls the deserted streets of the capital city of the RT Masters’ homeworld.  They talk about the fact that the Cougar can never detect them where they are.  Rem says it might be valuable to capture a Cougar to study how to defeat it.  Cabell reluctantly agrees.

Rem and Cabell capture the Cougar.

The Wedding Ceremony.  All of the major players are present.  It is an epic affair held in the RFS in the shadow of the SDF-3 which is still under construction.  There is some question as to who will give the bride away.  The mystery is solved when Lisa walks down the isle with Breetai.  It is a gesture of complete friendship and a hope for peace.

The celebration following the ceremony.

Minmei and Janice sing a duet.

Dana and Bowie play throughout the wedding celebration.  They are getting into everything.

Lisa throws her bouquet to the crowd of single girls.  Minmei comes up with the prized flowers.  It is a Western tradition which indicates that the person who catches the bouquet is the next to be wed.  Minmei has mixed emotions after catching the bouquet.  She watches as Rick and Lisa bid good night to their guest as they prepare to retire for the evening.

(Whew, my hands are getting tired.  How can people who type this much do it for a living?  At least we’re through the Sentinels DVD now, and we can move on to unexplored terretory.  -Blaq)

Locations: Earth, RFS, moon of Fantoma


Workers are cleaning up following the weding celebration.  The shuttle is filling up with guests returning to the Earth.  Max, Miriya, Vince, Jean escort their children onto the shuttle.  Rolf Emerson is in the background.

The parents tell their children that they must return to Earth.  They explain their reasons-it will be safer on Earth.  The trip to Fantoma is filled with too many variables.  The children are too young to make the journey.  There are no children on the mission.  Rolf Emerson will take care of Bowie, Dana will stay with Max’s family back on Earth-She will be able to live with cousins and learn the importance of family life.  When the mission is over they will all return and have a wonderful life together.  The children are crying but they say they understand.

Janice and Minmei get on the shuttle.  The parents leave the shuttle as it prepares to launch.  The parents watch from the observation window as the ship leaves for Earth.

On the moon of Fantoma Rem and Cabell are trying to disect the “Cougar” which they have captured.  As soon as they try to open the “killer machine”  the body crumbles to dust.

The Inorganics discover a video document which shows that the RT Masters have left on a Journey.

The Inorganics communicate with the Regent this valuable information.  The Regent sends a division of Invid back to the moon of Fantoma (Okay I’m tired of writing “moon of Fantoma” too.  Henceforth, even if they don’t call it Tirol in the book, that what I’m calling it.  Besides, “moon of Fantoma” is starting to sound like a nightclub to me.  -Blaq) to investigate further.

Minmei is looking into the nighttime sky.  She is thinking to herself that Rick and Lisa still do not know that she has forgiven them.  (Forgiven them for what?  -Blaq)  She thinks that it might be nice to tell them one last time that she has truely forgiven them.  She convinces Janice to go with her in her Fan Jet (Fan Jets are spaceworthy? -Blaq) to wish them a final farewell-it may be the last time she sees them. (Lisa can only hope.  -Blaq)

The selection of REF is made to a large assembled crowd.  It is decided that only 10,000 troops will go on the journey.  The majority of these troops have already volunteered.  Now Dr. Lang announces his choices for cadet candidates.  Both Jack and Karen are selected.  (I can’t decide what’s worst.  Still picking crew members the day before they leave, or still building the ship.  They never heard of a “shake down cruise”?  -Blaq)

They react differently.  Karen is very smug because she felt that she was destined to go.  Jack is overwhelmed because he really wanted to go.

The unveiling of the SDF-3.  It it sent out of the RFS.  Lisa is on the bridge giving orders.  She prepares for the journey by piloting the giant interstellar ship into positionfor the space fold operation.  Everyone on the bridge is impressed at the professionalism which Lisa displays.  Unfortuanately the radar operator fails to notice Minmei’s fan jet approaching.  They are all caught up in the excitement of the moment.

The space fold is engaged.  Janice and Minmei are caught in the vortex of the warp phenomenon.  They are drawn into space without any warning.

Dr. Lang hopes that the ship’s space fold mechanism will be able to hold up to the pressure of carrying this much weight through hyperspace.  The Trojan Horse Strategy has placed the entire REF armada inside the gutted interior of the giant space balltle fortress.  The added weight might be too much.  (I’m assuming they meant added “mass” not “weight”.  -Blaq)

The ship materializes from hyperspace near Fantoma.  Breetai and Exedore confirm this fact.

Radar confirms that they are being approached by a “welcomnig party.”  At first the group thinks that is an envoy mission from the RT Masters.  But Breetai warns that it is actually the Invid (left as a patrol force by the Regent).

Jancie and Minmei are both unconscious in the Fan Jet as it floats helplessly in space-having successfully made the journey through hyperspace.  Rick steps on to order the RDF troops into action to answer the threat posed by the Invid-they have to maintain their false identity as the returning SDF-3 in the chance that the RT Masters are monitoring the battle.  The ships prepare to launch.

Cabell and Rem notice the SDF-3 appearing from hyperspace and see it as the return of the RT Masters’ ship and potential salvation.

(Y’know, I really should’ve taken a better look at the scope of this project befor eI started it.  Should I just call it quits?  What do you think? 
-Blaq)

Timeframe: 2022
Location: Tirol and surrounding space

The REF launches it’s attack against the Invid.  The mecha uaed are various “battloids” and the improved veritech fighter, the veritech hover-tank and the prototype armored alpha fighter.

Max Sterling and Johnathan Wolfe lead various squadrons.  (I would’ve paid to have seen that alone!  -Blaq)  Wolfe leads an airborn infantry group of hover-tanks nicknamed “The Wolfe Pack.”  B.D. Edwards is in the war room with Rick Hunter-Edwards is Hunter’s second in command and is in charge of selected defense plans at the SDF-3.  Rick is in command of the offensive plans.  Rick deos not like Edwards but realizes his professionalism.

The Invid attack in Standard Invid Shocktroopers, Armored Invid Shocktroopers and Invid Officer units.  The Invid Scout ships are not used at this time.

As the fighting rages on, Col. Wolfe notices Minmei’s fan jet.  He requests permission to rescue the Earth ship.

Back on Tirol Cabell and Rem notice the battle and recognize that the fighters coming from the the returning SDF ship are not from Zor’s original mission.  But as far as they are concerned, any help that their planet can get to destroy the Inorganics and the Invid will be greatly appreciated.

The REF soundly defeat the Invid before they can contact the Regent.

Dr. Lang goes to check on the condition of Minmei and Janice.  He is pleased to note that they are fine.  He tells the two women to relax and he will deal with their problem later.  Lang treats Janice with an odd familiarity.

Edwards suggest that a mission be sent to the surface of Tirol to survey the situation and act as a potential envoy if approached by the RT Masters or the Invid-they must know who controls this homeworld.  Col. Wolfe volunteers his “Wolfe Pack.”  Hunter agrees.  But also insist that a Ground-based Mobile Unit (GMU) accompany the squadronof Veritech Hover Tanks.  vince is in command of the GMU.

They are given specific orders not to fire without provocation.

Jack and Karen are assigned as trainees on the GMU.  Karen is assigne to assist the navigator, Jack is to observe the functions of the gunnery officer.  Jack takes notice of this beautiful woman and attempts to strike up a conversation.  She does not respond.  Her superior attitude is displayed in all its full fury.  This only makes Jack more resolved to continue to pursue this relationship.  Exedore is also on board the GMU to act as an ambassador for the REF.

The mission is launched to Tirol.

The large living brain which controls the Inorganics buzzes with electrical activity as the Inorganics prepare to defend their new “Invid Colony” against this invasion.

Cabell and Rem realize that they must do something or their “Liberators” will be doomed.

(FINALLY!  THE FIRST WEEK IS OVER!  -Blaq)

The Wolfe Pack enters the capital city of the RT MAsters.  They walk into a trap.

The Inorganics put up tremendous resistance.  They are responsible for heavy casualties in the ranks of the REF.

Rick is shocked to see his troops suffer such losses.  Casualties are high.

Vince Grant has turned the GMU into a mobile hospital.  His wife is working on many of the wounded.

Wolfe is worried about Minmei which is affecting his judgment.

Rem and Cabell watch the Inorganics devastate the ranks of the Hover Tanks and ground based weapons systems.  (The Inorganics are ground based-and are most effective in close combat.)

Rem and Cabell note that there are guards surrounding the royal hall of the RT Masters-these guards never leave.  They deduce that they must be guarding something important.  They are right-inside the royal hall is where the living computer which controls the actions of the Inorganics.

The Cougars attack the fallen veritech weapon systems attampting to rip the pilots out of their helpless mecha.  It is a very dramatic situation.

Minmei rusches onto the Bridge of the SDF-3 to plead with Lisa to do something to save the Wolfe Pack.  Lisa says that those decisions are in the hands of Col. B.D. Edwards.  Rick is in command of the air force.  (Would that make him the CAG?  -Blaq)  Minmei burst into the war room to confront Edwards.

Edwards says that his hands are tied.  Regulations cannot be broken.  Until the combat troops call for air support Hunter is unable to do anything.

Minmei asks why no air support was called for.

Edwards notes that apparently Wolfe thinks he is in control of the situation.

In reality Wolfe is not thinking straight.  He is worried for Minmei.  As he ponders his dilemma Minmei comes over the radio and pleads with Wolfe to ask for air support to get his troops out of danger.  Hearing Minmei’s voice is enough to snap Wolfe out of his stupor.

Air Support is called for.  Rick responds by sending Max and the Skull Squad to the rescue.

They succeed in driving back the Inorganics for the time being giving the Wolfe Pack and the REF a chance to regroup.

(I think these things are starting to get shorter.  If you’d like e to stop my mid-story “comment”, just so so.  -Blaq)

Cabell and Rem discuss the possibility of contacting these troops who are battling with the Inorganics.  Breaking radio silence may give their possition away.  But if these warriors knew of the special significance of the royal hall, they might be able to stage a raid and break the reign of terror presented by the Inorganics.  Cabell advises the youth to wait for the right time.

Rick and Lisa have an argument.  Rick wants to join the Skull Squadron in the battle.  Lisa says that his duty is with the main force on the SDF-3.

Karen is not willing to help Dr. Jean Grant with the injured onboard the GMU-Karen notes that she is assigned to navigator duty and suggest that someone else dirty their hands with these unfortunate wounded.

Jack overhears the exchange and stops Karen in the corridor to try and explain the situation.  he tells her that he does not like authority also, but there comes a time when it is important to consider the life of a human being over the particulars of assignments which mean very little in the bigger scheme of things.  Karen tells him to mind his own business.  Jack persist and asks Karen for a date when this battle is over.

Vince is talking with Wolfe about a possible strategy.  This new enemy (the Inorganics) seems to feel no pain.  it continues to fire even after it has been hit and blown apart by cannon and laser fire.

Janice tries to cheers up Minmei who seems overly concerned with the fate of Col. Wolfe.  Minmei notes that her lack of concern lost her one pilot (Rick) and she is not going to let that happen again.  Janice notes that war is a terrible reality which must be faced by all.

Exedore is studying the situation.  He tells Dr. Lang that he has never experianced advanced fighting machines such as those the REF is encountering on the streets of the capital city.  But he does not think they are designed by the RT Masters.  And he also knows they are not Invid.  One thing is certain-these creatures are perfect killing machines which seem to be controlled by some omnipotent intelligence.

Rem finally convinces Cabell to place a call to these warriors-they may be their last chance for liberation.  They make radio contact with the GMU and inform Vince about the royal hall.

The Cougar picks up the radio signal and attacks the hidden stronghold of Rem and Cabell.

They repel the initial attack but are certain that the Cougars will return and break down their defenses.  The most they can hope for is that the warriors from the GMU will be able to act on the information they have given.  They also hope they are right in their speculation.

The GMU crew discuss the situation.  They call to Rick and Edwards onboard the SDF-3, which is still in planetary orbit, for advice.

But befor eanyone can come up with a plan, Jack decides to take matters into his own hands.  He walks into the arms storage area and outfits himself with several laser rifles, several bandoliers containing energy cells for the weapons he has chosen.  he also grabs a few grenades.

Karen notices him in the arms storage area.  She starts to argue with him.  he tries to restrain her.  She defends herself using martail arts techniques.  They stop and look at each other.  Karen also grabs weapons and amm belts.  They put on simple body armor and make their way to the staging area where they grab tow hover cycles.

Rick orders the Skull Squadron to fly over the Royal Hall to see if he can pick up anything with the thermal sensors newly equiped on the veritech fighters.

The Inorganics sense the activity.  This all leads back to the giant living computer which starts to assign duties and strategically place the Inorganics.

The living computer sends a message to the Regent on Optera.  Seems that the planet is being invaded by a group- of warriors who use protoculture weapons in a way that is totally unique.  The conclusion of the computer is that there are other societies and civilizations who have mastered the secrets of Robotechnology stemming from the Invid FoL.

This infuriates the Regent and starts an argument with the Regiss concerning the use of Protoculture.  The Regiss decides at this time to leave and pursue her own quest to find the lost protoculture.

Jack and Karen are ready to make their move.  They actiate the automatic door of the staging area and zoom out on their hover cycles.  They race back and forth down the narrow strets as they try to avoid ambush from the Inorganics.  The lumbering killing machines are slow and are not able to respond quickly to the rapidly darting hover cycles.  The Cougars do not have the same disadvantage.  They converge and attempt to pounce on the two heroes.

Max is flying recon when he picks up the presense of the two on his heat scanner.  He calls the Skull Squadron into action.  They blast a path for the two foolhardy warriors to the Royal Hall.

But befor they can make their way to the royal hall, Jack and Karen notice a group of Cougars surrounding what appears to be a blank wall whick is alive with electrical activity.  They turn off to investigate-someone might be in trouble.

It is the secret chamber of Rem and Cabell.  Their shielding is about to give way and collapse-which would let the Cougars in to destroy them.

Rem and Cabell are rescued by Jack and Karen.  It is a dangerous scene which forces them to return to the GMU and not reach their true goal-the royal hall of the RT Masters.

(That’s it, time to go home.  Thankfully there are only two more complete episodes left before it switches from daily summaries to weekly summaries.  -Blaq)

But keep up the good work!  ^_^  I’ll be reading this as long as you post it.  I’m interested in these “psychic powers” Rick develops.

(Well, if at least one person is reading, I guess I’ll keep going.  I’m home from work, and I decided to see how much more I can get done before 5:30 central time,  -Blaq)

Timeframe: 2022
Location: SDF-3, Tirol, Optera


Dr. Lang interviews Rem and Cabell.  They are introduced as members of the RT Masters civilization.  They want to know what happened to the crew of the SDF-1.  Dr. Lang tells the story of the First RT War very quickly.

Rem and Cabell are shocked.  The then tell the story of the RT Masters’ journey to Earth to finish the job that the Zentraedi were unable to do.

Edwards notes that the REF should get back to the Earth and set up a defense system.

Dr. Lang was hoping that he would be able to fix the system before he had to let everyone know, but now he feels that he must tell the assembled group that the Fold system has a minor malfunction due primarily from the fact that his one system was responsible for warping too much [mass] through hyperspace at one time-the Trojan Horse concept backfires on the RDF once again.  (Yeah, you gotta hate it when your “Trojans” fail. :rofl: -Blaq)

The only hope for ever returning to Earth is to set up a base on this moon and begin a small research facility to fabricate small [fold] drive mechanisms.  Cabell notes that the only way to make the [fold] drive mechanisms is by using materialwhich exist only on the planet Fantoma.  Dr. Lang then notes that that is why they were never really able to make the system work right back on Earth.  (The similar ore of Earth is too weak to handle the massive strain which is put on it.)  (Yeah, it’s not like they had a working fold drive on Breetai’s ship or the RFS…oh, wait!  -Blaq)

Rem notes that there is still the problem of the Inorganics.  And he notes that it would be better if the REF did not blow his homeworld apart to destroy the invaders.  Everyone tries to prepare a plan in regard to reclaiming the planet for Rem and Cabell’s people.

Janice notices Rem as he is leaving the meeting.  She has a strange reaction.  She tells Minmei who notes that perhaps Janice is falling in love-Minmei says it does happen to everyone.

Back on Optera, the Regent dispatches a small division of Invid Shocktroopers to deal with the insurrection on Tirol.  He is trying to deal with the disintergration of his society-now that the Regiss has left with half of his tribe.

A planning session by the REF works out the details of a raiding party designed to infiltrate the royal hall and deactivate whatever mechanism which controls the Inorganics.  Rick and Edwards also volunteer to participate in the mission-they feel their presence will be necessary-also Rick is longing for a chance to get into the action of combat.  (Sounds like someone has “Admiral Kirk” syndrome.  -Blaq)

The crew of the GMU defend against a small skirmish while Dr. Grant looks after Karen and Jack’s minor wounds following their daring raid.

(Captain’s Logg - Stardate *OOPS* I mean…  -Blaq)
Timeframe: 2022
Locations: Tirol, SDF-3


The Invid reinforcements arrive.  The SDF-3 sends out a series of veritech fighters to engage the enemy in space combat.

Lisa argues with Rick about his choice to go into battle.  He tells her that it’s his duty.

Jack volunteers to join the groundbased attack.  Karen also volunteers-the two young heros are always interseted in competing with one another.

Minmei meets with Wolfe.  They try to tell each other how they feel.  (How they feel?  They just met yesterday!  And I thought I moved fast!  -Blaq)  It is a rather awkward scene which is broken when Janice enters with Rem.  They are all introduced.  Wolfe takes the opportunity to leave with Rem to discuss battle plans.

Max and Rick are in the hanger going over equipment on their veritech fighters.  Max ask if Rick is sure this is what he wants to do-suggesting that Rick might be a little rusty as a combat pilot.  Rick says that he is ready for the fight.

A coordinated effort to attack the royal hall which contains the living computer.  The fighting id fierce.

The Invid join in the fight on the surface of Tirol.

A small group led by Edwards makes their way into the chamber and deactivates the system.  (They do not destroy it.  Later Edwards reactivates the system in an attempt to stage a coup!)

The Inorganics become “lifeless” humks of metal and glass.

Everyone stages a celebration as the imprisoned members of Cabell’s tribe are set free.

The atmosphere of joy is broken when Dr. Lang is given the announcement that a new armada is spotted heading toward Tirol.  This small fleet should arrive within a few hours.

(Yes!  Now I can move on into the “weekly” summaries.  It’s 5:23 now, so I’ll just have to post the rest tomorrow.  Please leave some feedback and tell me what you think so far.  It even has a synopsis for “Robotech: The Movie” if anyone’s interested.  -Blaq)

This follows the novels closely so far, but I can’t wait for the differences.  Including Rick’s “psychic powers”! -_-
