By the year 2120, humans have successfully colonized other planets following the near devestation of Earth from the last great world war. However, on Gloire, one such colony are surprised and unprepared at the arrival of The Zor, a group of beings whom were the original inhabitants of the planet and left following similar near fatal events. Coming to reclaim their former home world, a relentless war erupts between both races that ultimately leads to a cataclysmic showdown and into a no-win scenario for either.

While "Super Dimensional Fortress Macross" stayed mostly intact through its transition, "Southern Cross" underwent such drastic editing that ...

Southern Cross is an utterly forgettable show. It's only grip to relevancy is the fact that it's the third part of the super dimensional trilogy, and is the second part of the Robotech series.

There are three leads actually, and they are all women. The show however is more focused on one of them the most Jeanne. A capricious, spunky, stubborn girl who ...
