The Robotech Masters call full-scale assault on Earth. Nearly 70 percent of their remaining protoculture pods have been invaded by the Invid Flower of Life. The infected mass has degenerated to the point where it is no longer of any use to them. They are concerned that the Earth factory has been similarly contaminated. They must retrieve what they can before the Invid arrive.
At Command Central, Leonard decides to join Emerson and launch a final offensive: "we will knock them out of the skies or die in the attempt." His fellow officers agree.
Bowie and Musica hide within the wreck of the SDF-1. The flowers have changed since Bowie's last visit. Musica recognizes the blossoms at once and realizes that the Invid Flowers of Life have completed their mutation. Even now, the drifting spores are drawing the Invid to Earth across the cosmos. Bowie demands an explanation. Musica tells him: "The Invid are the enemies of both our people...The Flower of Life survives by feeding off the protoculture matrix." The young fugitives have found the factory everyone has been searching for, but it is too late to be of any use to earth or the Robotech Masters.
Dana and crew track the couple to the ruins. They are followed in turn by Nova Satori and Zor. When confronted by the spores, Zor Prime remembers his past. He knows all of Zor's plans and dreams. He becomes the original Zor once again.
