Searched a few threads and even checked out wiki, but I’m still not sure what was the sense of Mars Base Sara.

I know what a base is, duh ^^, but what was its primary use for the RDF?
I understood its use during the Invid timeline, but what about during the 1st RT war?

(maybe I should ask the hardcore rt forum too hehe)

it’s purpose was to establish a base on Mars?  ^_^

Sorry, couldn’t help myself.  Seriously, I think that one of the offical comics had Mars base being a research lab for dangerous technologies, like the reflex furnace.  After all, if you are going to blow up a small chunk of soil with a failed experiement, it might as well be on a planet that you can’t live on anyway.

An early warning system?

Given that the UEG knew about the Zentraedi, they could have had a mix use for Mars Base Sara as an early warning base/research base.

A transportation base for materials with an eye to universal trips.Remembering SDF1 once landed about and got some supplies from it,so i think it should contain ammo and stored foods.And,for military purpose,it was set up to be a sentinal station for warning and providing a line of defence.The distance from it to the earth forms strategical deepness that enables earth forces to react and position against outerspace invasion heading towards.

In my oppinion, Mars Base Sara was built for two reasons. One, to be an early warning facility; and Two, to do research on advanced technology. It would have been a very secure base to do research, due to its distance from the Earth.

For some reason I always thought that Sara was pre-SDF-1. I thought Lisa’s dead Fiance, Carl Riber, was asigned to the base durring the Anti-Unification wars. Which, as I recall, were brought to an end BY the arrival of the SDF-1. It’s been awhile since I had seen the first episode, but I thought that the narator said the “global cival war” ended with the arrival of the SDF-1. So it’s likely that Sara was originally some military outpost, probably an observation and inteligance post, durring the Anti-Unification wars.

Now, my opinion of this changed when I saw Macross Zero. Of course Macross Zero is not Robotech, so I know that doesn’t count. However, Macross Zero seems to lay out a different time line. One in which the Macross’s arrival SPARKS the AU Wars. If we take that time line, then I can only guess at the purpose of Sara

Wasn’t the base built during the global civil war?  I would assume that it was just a base the government put on Mars.  Why? Because they could?

from the Invasion comics (half was lancer’s story and half was mars base sera) the base was yes to test the a reflex furnace taken from the SDF1 but there was also a need to test the predecessor to the Grand Cannon powered by the reflex furnace. Karl Riber didnt know of its presence up until the local military commander informed him of it during a zentraedi attack. Now all the people of Mars Base Sera except for Riber and the local commander were evacuated via an Oberth but that was destroyed by the Zentraedi. The reflex weapon being tested took the life of the commander and the Zentraedi ship and Riber was left alone.

Admiral Hayes said that Anti Unification forces destroyed the base in order to hide the fact that the Earth was in danger from Aliens because humans were just recovering from a long global war.
