65 episode sequel to the original Robotech
animated television saga. Scripts for all

Sentinels. Robotech II primarily features the
cast of the Macross saga but does have cast
members from Robotech Masters, and Robotech the
New Generation in addition to the 3 alien races
of the various parts of the Robotech saga.
