This series is the first in the mammoth library of series, movies, and OVAs known as "Macross." In Super Dimensional Fortress Macross, otherwise known as SDF-1 Macross, the people of Earth, living for the first time under one government for all humanity, have spent the past ten years rebuilding the city-sized alien spaceship that crashed on South Atalia Island. Finally ready to celebrate the ship's first launch, the inexperienced pilots of the ship are met with an attack from an alien race called the Zentradi. The Zentradi are fierce enemies of the race that originally piloted the ship that crashed to Earth, and seeing it now, begin to fire. Earth has unwittingly entered into a war with an alien race, thus changing the history of the universe for all time. SDF-1 Macross was edited, dubbed, and combined with the series Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber Mospeada to create the American series Robotech: Macross Saga. Robotech is sometimes mistakenly described as simply the English dub of SDF-1 Macross, but this is not the case.
