Mark Landry is a rather rebellious teenager who works at a
motorbike garage called Bob's Repair Shop. He has a rather
smart mouth which constantly gets him into trouble (especially
with his girlfriend, Becky Michaels). Mark acquires the
transformable bike/computer terminal, the MODAT 5, after a
meeting with his friend is disrupted by military agents. Mark
is played by Kerrigan Mahan (credited as Ryan O'Flannigan in
the film). Kerrigan has previously voiced Kimball Kinnison in
the "Lensman" movie, Carson in the Streamline Pictures dub of
"Dirty Pair: Project Eden", Morley in the Streamline Pictures
dub of "Megazone 23 Part 1" and Johnny Winters (AKA Shogo
Yahagi) in an obscure dub of "Megazone 23 Part II" which was
only released on VHS and laserdisc in Japan in 1987.
Colonel B.D. Andrews is a high ranking officer at the Robotech
Research Centre, but is replaced with an identical clone of
himself by the Robotech Masters in a plot to steal the memory
matrix. The clone is very calculated and cunning. Andrews is
played by Gregory Snegoff (credited as Greg Snow in the film).
Greg's others roles have included, DJ Bill in the "Lensman"
movie, Duke 'Golgo 13' Togo in the Streamline Pictures dub of
"The Professional: Golgo 13" and strangely enough the original
B.D. in the Streamline Pictures dub of "Megazone 23 Part 1".
Greg has also worked as a dub director on Streamline Pictures
English dubs of "Megazone 23 Part 1", "The Professional: Golgo
13", "Wicked City" and "Crying Freeman".
Becky Michaels is Mark's girlfriend. It seems the pair have
somewhat of a stormy relationship. But Mark's actions and
mysterious behaviour only seem to make things worse. Becky
works as a dancer and appears on many TV shows. She shares a
flat with Stacy Embrey and Kelly Stevens. In his synopsis of
"Robotech the movie" contained in the book, "Robotech Art 3:
The Sententials" as well as some Harmony Gold internal
reference material, Carl Macek calls this character "Becky
Franklin". However in the film she referrers to herself as
"Becky Michaels". Becky is played by Brittany Harlowe who,
like a lot of actors in this film, also appeared in the
Streamline Pictures dub of "Megazone 23 Part 1", but providing
the voice of Eve Tokimatsuri instead.
Eve is a mysterious but extremely popular singer. She has her
own TV show where fans call up to discus their problems, but
when Mark calls her, he us set upon by Andrews men. He tries
to meet her to see if she set him up, but accidentally
discovers her secret and her connection to the MODAT 5 and the
government cover up of the Robotech Masters invasion. Eve is
played by Muriel Fargo who also provided the voice of Sister
Fortune in the obscure live action B-movie from the mid
1980's, "Roller Blade".
The Robotech Masters are a race of beings from a planet called
Fantoma in the constellation of the Southern Cross. Sometime
in the distant past, one of their scientists, Zor, created a
kind of power source named Protocultre. Zor's battle fortress
crashed on planet Earth in 1999, and was re-fitted by humans
and re-launched as the SDF-1 in 2009. In "Robotech the movie",
The Robotech Masters have come to retrieve the memory matrix
of from the computer of Zor's battle fortress, and invade the
Earth and abduct and clone one of the military's top raking
officers to achieve their plan. The masters are part of a race
called the Tirolian and generally are organised in groups of
three in all aspects of their lives.
Todd Harris is a solider in the Southern Cross army. He
performs duty in the first battle with the Robotech Masters
with Colonel B.D. Andrews, who is abducted during battle.
Later Todd is disgusted at the United Earth Government's
cover-up of the invasion and steals the MODAT 5 in an attempt
to reveal the truth to the public. Unfortunately Todd is
stopped when he meets up with his friend Mark, though Mark
manages to get away with the MODAT 5. Todd is played by Dan
Woren who voiced Roy Fokker in the "Robotech" TV series and
reprised his part of "Todd Harris" as Shinji Nakagawa in the
Streamline Pictures dub of "Megazone 23 Part 1".
Professor Daryl Embrey is the head of the Ministry of Computer
Science. Embrey orders the computer to be shut off after some
of Andrews men express concern at how he has ordered that the
previously unused and untested computer from the SDF-1, the
E.V.E, is to send it's data to a dead satellite, which could
be infiltrated by the enemy. When Andrews retaliates, Embrey
tries to escape to Alaska Base, with his daughter, where the
master control for the E.V.E. is in a last ditch effort to
shut down the computer and stop Andrews. Professor Embry is
voiced by Mearle Pearson, who also played Admiral Hayes in the
"Robotech" TV series.
Although not mentioned the movie itself, according to Carl
Macek's notes on "Robotech the movie", Stacy Embry is an
aspiring song writer. She lives in a share house with Becky
Michaels and Kelly Stevens. When Colonel B.D. Andrews, takes
control of the E.V.E. computer, her father, Professor Daryl
Embrey, attempts to take her to safety at Alaska Base. In some
early Harmony Gold internal reference material, the character
is named Susie Embrey. Stacy is played by fan favourite
Wendee Lee (credited as Wendy Swan in the film). Wendee has
dubbed many anime characters in English including Yuri in the
Streamline Pictures dub of the "Dirty Pair" movie and OVAs,
Faye Valentine in "Cowboy Bebop", Kaolla Su in "Love Hina",
Yahiko Myojin in "Rurouni Kenshin" and Angel in "Big O". She
has also adapted and directed a number of English dubs
including "Love Hina" and "Outlaw Star".
Kelly Stevens is a film student who creates a film with Mark
Landry and Becky Franklin in the lead roles. Mark believes the
only reason he was cast as the lead was because he had the
MODAT 5, which is used extensively in the film. But Kelly's
inclusion of the MODAT 5 in her film has dire consequences for
her. Kelly shares a flat with Becky Michaels and Stacy Embrey.
Kelly is voiced by Edie Mirman (credited as Penny Sweet in the
film). Edie has also played Clarissa 'Chris' McDougal in the
"Lensman" movie and Fujiko Mine in Streamline Pictures English
dubs of the "Lupin III" movies. She also reprised her "Kelly
Stevens" role as Tomomi Murashita in the Streamline Pictures
dub of "Megazone 23 Part 1".
Rolf Emerson is the Chief of Staff to the Supreme Commander of
the United Earth Forces. He is a well liked leader, excellent
strategist and thinks things through, unlike his commander,
Leonard. Emerson originally appeared in the "Masters" arc of
the "Robotech" TV series, where he was Bowie Grant's guardian.
He plays a small role in "Robotech the movie", attempting to
fight off the Robotech Masters as they try to obtain the
memory matrix. Rolf is played by Michael McConnohie (credited
as Jeremy Platt in the film). Michael's other roles have
included Count Cagliostro in the Streamline Pictures dub of
"The Castle of Cagliostro", D in the Streamline Pictures dub
of "Vampire Hunter D" and Ramba Ral in "Mobile Suit Gundam The
Anatole Eli Leonard is the Supreme Commander of United Earth
Defence Forces. He's inflexible, stubborn and solves problems
in the same way you'd use a sledgehammer to crack a nut. His
approach to the Robotech Masters invasion is to attack them,
which results in the death of many solders. He also gives the
go-ahead for Andrews to have full control of the E.V.E.
computer, which proves disastrous since Andrews is a clone
created by the Robotech Masters. Like Emerson, Leonard also
originally appeared in the "Masters" arc of the "Robotech" TV
series. Leonard is played by Guy Garret.
