From the draft v.4 contents page:
The alien menace descends upon the SDF-1 in droves. You, your friends and the might of Robotechnology are the only things that stand between them and seventy thousand innocent civilians. Do not expect to make it home. Do not expect to see your friends again. Do whatever it takes to ensure humanity’s future.
Welcome to Robotech.
From the introduction:
It has been a dream of ours to bring our vision of Robotech in a tabletop role playing game. We didn’t want to make a book that was just a book, but something that was worthy of such an amazing show. We made a game that encomapsses everything Robotech. Here you can pilot any Mecha that was in the Macross Series, be an officer on the SDF-1’s bridge or play an entertainer who emboldens the crew. Pick up and play your favorite heroes from the show, or make your own new hero. You can even play a Zentraedi villain or an RDF defector. As much as the show is fun and dynamic, we have worked to bring you a game that is also dynamic. We believe that is an honor to be able to bring you Robotech and we are humbled by your support.
