BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF ROBOTECH MASTERS, TRIUMVIRATE CLONE SOCIETY & TRIUMVIROID


BY: Dr. Jackson McKinney (Resident Professor - Extra-Terrestrial Studies, New Macross University)

Additional Inputs By Pro-Consul Cabell of New Tyrol Republic.
Taken from UEEF Officer Manual 2041 Ed. for Robotecha Enyclopaedia - RFS Digest, December 2044 Edition


Introduction & Brief History

For centuries, the Robotech Masters have dominated the known universe, controlling vast territories that until now modern historians have difficulty to identify, from modest estimates of thousands of worlds to exaggerated hundreds of thousands of planetary systems.

However, their history almost parallel with that of native Tyrolians. However, one must be able to differentiate from free willing Tyrolian societies, who by far, original natives of Tyrol & still carry on with their culture, albeit under strict control from their Masters overlords. The Triumvirate clone societies & its extension, the Bioroid warrior clones known as Triumviroids, are as distinct to average Tyrolians & maintains separate culture as that of Zentraedi, another clone societies that Masters created on their path to power.

Where they originated from, their rise to power & glory, & their motivation will be thouroughly discussed in herein onwards.

The Robotech Master's homeworld can be located orbiting a star in a distant constellation. On Earth, the constellation is visible only from the Southern hemisphere, hence its name "The Southern Cross". The star system known as Valivarre, includes the largest planet in this system, a gas giant called Fantoma, & one of its orbiting satellites, called Tyrol. The native Tyrolians have at that time developed into a thriving space-faring society controlling a large number of worlds under its sphere of influence. Yet, it is not until a certain Tyrolian techno-voyager known as Zor Derelda’s discovery of protoculture did the Tyrolians gain their name & reputation as "techno-wizards".

The discovery & development of protoculture rocketed this race light-years ahead of the other intelligent life forms in the 4th Quadrant. Protoculture is derived from the Invid Flower of Life; a bizarre alien plant that blooms only on planet Optera in Tzuptum system. The development of protoculture technology produced 3 overwhelmingly significant results that transform the Tyrolian society:

- First & foremost, a properly germinated Flower of Life’s seed, locked in stasis, will produce an estimated bio-energy a thousand times greater than the output of Terran’s best nuclear reactor. A specialized & efficient system of cell batteries & generators can tap into this clean bio-energy created by the organic power-plant & draw on its long-lasting energy for years. A handful of seeds can generate enough energy production capacity to power a high-tech civilization on planetary level.

- It is when this organic power source is used to fuel & power advanced machinery & instrumentalities, it imparts almost living-like qualities which would ultimately leads to the development of Robotechnology & the unique synthesis between that of man & machine. This achievement marked the successful application of Protoculture into Robotech militarization, with creation of terror war machines & vast space armada.

- Protoculture applications can be used to cloning development. It is through zylonases enzyme, a leftover of protoculture matrices’ production, that genetic manipulation by Robotech bio-researchers achieved their greatest fame, both the Zentraedi & Triumvirates clones production.

The Robotech Elders, Zor’s colleagues, are quick to utilize protoculture to its fullest potential. First they established a Robotech consortium & has the Republic Senate backings, to pioneer every field of research associated with protoculture applications. Terror assault mechas, Zentraedi infantries, & huge combat spacecrafts & bio-organic science research will ultimately help fueled Robotech Elders ambition to finally wrest power from the Republic & established their fiefdom & Robotech Empire. These three individuals even create their own triumvirate clones as their successors, the Robotech Masters.

It is not long that Robotech Elders act towards monopolizing the lucrative protoculture production. Zor Derelda, as the 1st Robotech Master, is instructed to gather all the germinated seeds for Imperial storage, completing research on Flower of Life species for eventual future plantation production centers, & deliver the final coup de grace, betraying the Invid monarchs on Optera. The end result is where Zentraedi troops immediately stripped all Flower of Life species from its native Optera, followed by the complete defoliation of the Invid homeworld. An act of greed that unleashes the Invid crusade on the known universe, & will ultimately leads to the Robotech Imperium destruction, in later part of Imperium history.

In the Great Transition era, every native Tyrolians were forced to donate their DNA samples to the Imperium cloning bank, in effect accumulating countless DNA samples to be derived & manipulated to create whole series of both Zentraedi & later Triumvirate clones. This in effect creates outlasting distrust of Tyrolian natives to their clones cousins for generations to come. Subjugation of the 4th Quadrant worlds added to Robotech Elders arrogance. Feeling that Tyrolian natives are the backward step in Robotech society evolutionary development, they created artificial Triumvirate clones societies, which follow strictly to the perverted Triumvirate dogma that become the official ideology for the Imperium.

The end result culminates in the devastative Robotech Civil War between rebellious Tyrolian colonies against Masters’ Triumvirate clone societies. A war that rages for 3 centuries that will ravaged the Empire & nearly bring it down to its knees. Masters faction becomes victorious in this long running wars, & repopulated the entire Imperium colonies with their Triumvirate societies, safe only Tyrol itself.

Having a robotechnological & military edge towards the other civilizations, Robotech Masters’ grip over Robotechnology & protoculture production become far tighter. As the Robotechnology becomes more developed & refined, Masters as the sole owner of the technological wonders control the fates of entire civilizations, alien or otherwise, making sure other worlds would become dependent to Masters’ for energy production & lucrative trade that comes from protoculture applications. This creates subvervient mentality that pervades most of the Masters non-Tyroloid alien races under Imperium dominion.

By withholding the technology for protoculture refinement & production, no other alien cultures can solved their dependencies towards the precious bio-energy. The alien users’ understanding of protoculture power production simply limited to: an invaluable seed used to generate power & can only be used as an energy source. It almost seem that Robotech Masters, alone, hold the greatest secret for immortality in the universe. Even the appearance of the mysterious Invid threat, which ultimately signal the beginning of another strife what would stretch into eons, do not sway the Masters.

An old Terran axiom said that with ultimate power comes ultimate corruption, which become true for the Robotech Masters. The creation of Triumvirate clones mean immortality & a complete Triumvirate highest form of expression for the Robotech Masters. But, with each passing centuries, they become more & more detached from their own Tyrolian roots, become emotionless as emotions are seen as beneath their morals & befits only the primitive micronian cultures they so detested. Even the wealth coming from trade & commerce of Robotechnology & protoculture production cannot satiate their needs for total control. If a planet & its civilization refused to deal with the Masters, by threatening or blackmailing them into submission are the only available options. If a world still refuses Masters subjugation or dares to strike back, planetary bombardment & total annihliation by the Zentraedi Regular Armies is often the Robotech Masters coldless response.

Eventually, it taken Zor Derelda – the 1st Robotech Master, the discoverer of the Flower of Life & father of Robotechnology, to finally set the change in Master’s course of history. After several futile attempts to avert the excesses of the Masters, the aging Zor (he refused the last life-extension treatment programme as scheduled in early 20th century AD, Terran estimate) plans his quiet rebellion. Gathering all the last available original & fertile Flower of Life (he was still head of protoculture development) & the last known protocolture matrix, he stored them within secret compartment of his personal battle fortress, the Makross-class monitor. He then proceeds to destroy all data pertaining on protoculture research except those that he committed to memory alone. His greatest personal retaliation come in form of supplying Masters with infertile, mutant version Flower of Life during reseeding missions to foreign worlds. In this way, Zor is almost certain he will be able to force the Masters hand to be more humane towards the Imperium subjects & equitable use of protoculture to all its citizens, to Zor’s own guilt, to redress his past mistakes.

As fates have shown, Zor would be killed during Invid ambush of the seeding mission on distant sector of the Imperium. Despite that shortcoming, his ship’s AI, Ih’va (aka EVE) – following Zor’s pre-planned programming to the letter – folded to parts outside Masters’ sphere of influence. The last of the protoculture matrix & fertile Flower of Life is now out of reach from Masters are transported inside Makross to a distant world, Earth. That fateful event will yield the humanity of Earth regarding the secrets of Robotechnology & signalling the destruction of the Robotech Masters' society, & the mass genocide of nearly all of the Zentraedi Regular Armies.

It has been four decades since Zor's vessel crashed into Earth in Sol-system. The Robotech Masters' warrior-slaves, the Zentraedi, came to reclaim the precious protoculture, laying waste to most of the Earth in cataclysmic battle, only to have their own race in high on endangered list as four million Zentraedi warships were destroyed & the people of Earth stood triumphant. Fifteen years later, the Robotech Masters have come to finish the job started by their Zentraedi ilks, to retrieve the protoculture matrix for themselves. It taken yet another cataclysmic battle & humanity greater resolves for survival of their species & planet that doomed the entire Robotech Masters civilization to a death knell on Earth’s doorstep.

Triumvirate Clone Society Part I – Developmental Stages

In the later stages of Stellar Age, as Robotechnology progressed thanks to protoculture usage in energy production, Tyrolian bio-science also benefited greatly from protoculture discovery. Improved agricultural products such as new modified grains & farm animals spread thoughout Stellar Republic vast colonies, but most importantly, the development into Tyroloid cloning revolutionizes & galvanizes the entire Tyrolian scientific circles. Through the discovery of zylonases (Tiresian Homonym: Zhailoni) enzyme, a biological byproduct of protoculture matrix (apart from energy & power production), these enzymes are used extensively in life-extension treatments for Tyrolian upper aristocrats, & also applied in cellular-repair medical treatment available to the masses. Most importantly, the zylonases application into cloning & corporeal reconstruction by Zor Derelda initiates the development of Tyroloid clones.

Robotech Elders under the guise of Robotech consortium initiate the eugenics experiments to create generic Tyroloid clones. Through fundings & approval by the Stellar Republic’s Senate, Zor Derelda continue his research in the subject matter, that later develops into “sizjentzs” (Tiresian homonym: sit’sentzs, literal meaning: exceeding slave standards) biological programme to develop artificially construct of living beings for use of manual off-world labor, most notably to exploit the Tyrolian vast monopole ore reserves widely available within Fantoma’s ring system. So in 1355AD, the new batches of clones are introduced, known as the Zentraedi, built upon modified giant scaffolding & modified DNA sourced out from spliced junk Tyroloid DNA. As Zentraedi serves Robotech Elders purpose to change the course of the entire Tyrolian history into that of Robotech Imperium, it taken the Robotech Masters own initiative to create new clone society, that will adhere & living to the ideals of the Masters perfect Triumvirate Dogma.

As Robotech Imperium grows, Robotech Elders ordered their heirs, the Robotech Masters in creating entire Triumvirate society, bio-genetically engineered within cloning vats, with false memory engrams & neural programming solely centered on Triumvirate ideologies, with servile disposition to Masters will. With vast Tyroloid DNA storage databanks from whence the Zentraedi are derived from, production of a whole new Triumvirate clone series are activated.

Triumvirate Clone Society Part II – Societal Development

The servile & meek Triumvirate clones steadfast on Triumvirate ideals immediately become the preferential citizens of the Imperium. Practicing & applying Triumvirate caste system for every level of hierarchy within Imperium social strata become the norm. Furthermore, Triumvirate clones are given special rights & become the ultimate social role model upon all Imperium non-clones population must adhere too. At the height of Robotech Civil War that bordered on wholeside genocide of both parties - Republican Robotech Rebels’ Tyrolian independent colonists & the Imperium’s Tyrolian loyalists, the Triumvirate clones comprised less than one tenth of the Imperium total population. Being the favorite of all Masters’ citizens, the Triumvirate societies are spared from the destructive Robotech Civil War, shielded within the massive Azashar class city-ships that become the mobile Headquarters of Robotech Masters.

Destruction of the long running Robotech Civil marked drastic reduction in Imperium native Tyrolians non-clone citizens & non-clone colonists population. In order to repopulate the entire Imperium following the aftermath of the Robotech Civil War, Robotech Masters immediately drastically increased the production of Triumvirate clone series to replace indigenous Tyrolian colonists that perished in the great civil war. New batches of colonists, this time made up solely by Triumvirate clones resettle many Imperium core-worlds, colony worlds & border fringes colonies during the Imperium’s Renaissance Age. The non-clone Tyrolian colonists survivors have to undergone forced relocation back to Tyrol, which they actually preferred & assimilated with native Tyrolians back in their homeworld.

Triumvirate colonists immediately become the majority of the population of the entire Imperium as native Tyrolians now confined to Tyrol itself. Every major administrative hierarchy are controlled by Triumvirate clones whose loyalty to the Triumvirate ideology & Masters bordered on fanatical overzealousness. Emotions are outlawed; individual needs & independent thinkings are squashed under the collective Triumvirate way of life. Unlike that of the Zentraedi, Triumvirate clones stepped out of their cloning vats as mere triplets babies, grown into adulthood with their triumvirate siblings while imbibing Triumvirate propagandas under the umbrella of strict Triumvirate social support institutions & will be integrated to Triumvirate socities soon after reaching adulthood bereft of any familial or personal ties except growing bonds on intuitive level with their own Triumvirate siblings.

The Triumvirate colonists developed their culture solely based on Triumvirate dogmas, that centered on the numerology of three & mystic neo-religious beliefs centered of Triplicate symbol Flower of Life. Theirs fanatical following of the Triumvirate way of life is akin to the false Imperative Dogma instilled on Zentraedi, indeed, the Triumvirate Compulsion is instilled during neural re-programming of the false engrams imprinted on every Triumvirate clone series. So sinister of total control practiced by Masters in ensuring capitulation of their entire clone societies would be the integration of Cosmic Harp melodies that become the inimitable & embedded facet of Triumvirate culture. Cosmic Harp tunes supposedly to elicits calm & docileness within Triumvirate life, actually worked on subconscious minds of every Triumvirate clones, suppressing any primitive emotions & killing off any inedependent thought processes on psychological level on each Triumvirate clones.

Triumvirate clones continued to dominate the Imperium civilisation throughout Renaissance Age, becoming the prime factor for Robotech continuum continuation. However, as a society living on pre-programmed & structured Triumvirate ideals that prohibited individual expressions & basic freedom of thinkings, the Masters clones are slowly degenerated beneath intellectual & mental progress that continue to evolve in other alien species, even repressed native Tyrolians also still highly independent, despite restrictions by their (often described – over generous Colonial Triumvirate Governors) Triumvirate overlords on Tyrol. Only higher ranked members of Triumvirate castes - safe for Robotech Masters themselves – the Clone Masters & Science Masters (even Muses Triumvirates) most often given freer, but limited reins on their thought processes simply to serve their purposes for political, military tactical & social decisions made still in accordance to Triumvirate Dogma & alongside scientific advancement solely for the Robotech Imperium.

Given that (safe for higher ranked Triumvirates) majority of Triumvirate civilian clone population are derived from genetic database of native Tyrolians from philosophers, merchant & artisan classes, these Triumvirate clones are generally more pacifists in nature. Triumvirate clones also are far more dependent towards Masters than that of semi independent & highly aggressive Zentraedi, in almost every fields of social developments. For military & security matters, the Triumvirates colonists depended entirely on Zentraedi Regular Armies & autonomous Tyrolian Border Fleet. The industrial products mainly come from various non-labor intensive, unmanned automated Robotech manufacturing centers strewn throughout the Imperium coreworlds. Meanwhile for the vibrant trade & commerce within the vast Imperium, the enterprising Karbarrans, the alien citizens of the Imperium controlled with majority impunity & for critical industries such as agro-farming production centers & monopole mining facilities manned by Garudans conscripts laborers.

Unbeknownst to Triumvirate colonists whose lifestyle they themselves regarded as the highest expression of Robotech civilization, other non-clone Imperial citizens, the myriad Sentinels alien species on Imperial alien worlds & the native Tyrolians on Tyrol; despite severe restrictions over their lifestyle, are free to continue with their local traditions & vibrant cultures beneath the shadow of often lackaisaidal Triumvirate Imperial Governors (who, while still steadfast to Triumvirate Dogma, but over the years of direct interaction with cultured non-clone natives often ‘softened them up’ to various degree of cultural exposure).

The late Renaissance Age also marked the eventual stagnant of Triumvirate way of life, as Protoculture crises hits all time low. As 1st Robotech War spelled doom towards their goliath clone cousins, the Zentraedi, the outcome of that war with Terrans also forced the Masters to undertake drastic course of action. One can best summed up the entire frantic & desperate measures from a chapter of highly popular Col. (ret) Mahmoud Abbas’ Genesis: 2nd Robotech War overview that is included herein.

Quote:
Addendum I (Excerpts taken from Genesis: 2nd Robotech War overview)

THE DECAY OF AN EMPIRE – THE MASTERS EXODUS

With the destruction of Gorg BoDolza Fleet (Dolza’s Grand Fleet) in Sol System during 2011AD & subsequent capture of Zentraedi Factory Satellite by UEF space force in 2013AD effectively crippled the Robotech Imperium defence capacity from hostile forces. The entire 4th Quadrant & the vast Robotech Masters Empire, instability & lawlessness slowly prevail as result of deteriorating security situation & most notably protoculture crises that hit the Empire from 2012 – 2018AD.

To fill the vacuum leaves behind by Zentraedi Regular Armies that perished alongside Dolza in Sol-system, the vaunted far-flung Zentraedi Borderers (of Tyrolian Border Forces) are recall back to defend the Empire. But the Robotech Masters citizens in its Imperial colonies, even Tyrol & many other alien species whose homeworlds are part of Imperium colonial assets, never actually realized the severity of the security & protoculture crises that are going to jeopardize the Empire’s future into the gutter. As for Robotech Masters, preparation has begun to finish the job that Dolza & his Zentraedi have never been able to finish, the retrieval of the last protoculture matrix aboard SDF-1.

Robotech Elders, the triumvirate figureheads on the Empire throne, decree that for the sake of the Empire, the protoculture matrix retrieval mission is critical & paramount. Robotech Masters are given free hand to use all readily available resources that the Empire has, including limited protoculture supplies still available at their disposal to organize the mission. However, the Tyrolian Border Forces (whose 2/3rd of its personnels are comprised by Zentraedi Borderers) are held back to defend the Empire from external threat, in order not to repeat the same debacle that befallen the Zentraedi Regular Armies, a possible widespread cultural contamination. This time around, only the emotionless Robotech Masters artificial triumvirate clones will be the ones to reclaim the lost Robo-Grail half a galaxy away.

The mobilization of the best triumvirate clones are organized throughout the Empire, with the elite Imperial Bioroid Forces taking the lead in matter of future conflict with the accursed micronians. Robotech Masters mobilize atleast 12 Azashar class flagships, alongside hundreds of Assault Cruisers & even Taul-Detrel System Destroyers in tow. As the best & finest of the Empire military machines, with the last protoculture supplies that the Empire still has & crewed by the Masters own clones assemble near their homeworld, the Masters Imperial Armada disappears from the Imperium in 2014AD & travel to Sol-System through a 15 year journey by impulse drive, in order to minimize their already depleted protoculture supplies.

Triumvirate Clone Society Part III – Social Structure & Hierarchy

As Triumvirate way of life deeply connected with numerology of three, it still retains the vestiges of early Republican Tyrolian social ranks, such as patricians, philosophers, artisans & military classes, but adapted to perverted Triumvirate societal structures. This chapter will addressed the Triumvirate societal hierarchy as prevalent during the Renaissance Age up to the closing act of 2nd Robotech War as practiced by Triumvirate clones.

The Original Masters of the Universe - Robotech Elders

Not much is known of the three individuals that by machinations & force toppled the Stellar Republic & created the Robotech Mercantile Empire. Sufficed to note, from scant surviving history records that the 3 individuals are the topmost scientists favored by the Stellar Republic’s Senatorial committee, alongside Zor Derelda, were crowned as Robotech Masters for outstanding achievement for latter’s research in the robotechnology, scientific cornerstone pioneered by the 1st Robotech Master, Zor himself. The Robotech Elders themselves were not clones, but triplicate twin siblings with above par intellectual abilities, whose capitalistic ventures & skills are also undeniable. Interestingly, these early Masters, from whom where all successive Robotech Masters Triumvirates claimed direct genetic descendants, were known by their respective names: Nimuul, Fallagar & Hepsis.

Successful in monopolizing & pioneering every fields of Robotechnology research through their capitalist venture, the Robotech Consortium, it is their shadowy & illegal eugenics experiments on early Triumvirate clones that will ultimately reshaped the Robotech Elders destiny. They immediately seized the chance to topple the Stellar Republic via Zentraedi minions, & immediately set the course for Robotech Imperium.

Robotech Elders claimed immortality through life extension programmes, until they pioneered memory transfer programmes upon which their personalities were transferred to new clone bodies after their old bodies expired (their new clone bodies are specialized Zosuma, Zosumu & Zosumo Triumviroid elite series – reserved for Elders usage only). To keep their mental geniuses lived on; they created new artificial clones of themselves, the successive Robotech Masters to carry on their Triumvirate legacies. Many historians will admit, despite Robotech Elders excesses, the Tyrolian greatest Golden Age are credited not only to Zor Derelda, but also to political, scientific & tactical abilities of Robotech Elders that marked the rapid rise of Robotech Mercantile Empire that saw establishment of somewhat benign (of course dictatorial regime) & accommodating administration plus robust economic development & diplomatic achievement.

Surprisingly liberal towards their non-clone Tyrolians subjects during Imperium Golden Age, who at that time were the majority as compared to early experimental Triumvirate societies that only confined within Masters cityships, Robotech Elders finally descended to old-age paranoia. Ever fearful of their grip on power, it taken one of them, their own trusted colleague, Zor Derelda to instigate the divisiveness between Robotech Elders’ Triumvirate ideology & the Robotech Mercantile Empire rival – the Tyrolian Colonies Republic, an autonomous independent entities that favors old Stellar Republican ways. The ideological confrontation turned from heated intellectual exchanges to outright armed rebellions upon which forced Robotech Elders into effectively declared martial law. The Robotech Civil War started as a holy war as Imperium faction & Republican faction each declared crusade for their own ideological standings.

Despite besting their Robotech Rebels, collectively known as ‘Disciples of Zor’, after more than 2 centuries worth of destruction that brought the Empire into ashes, Robotech Elders were a spent force. As Robotech Elders successfully wrest power from Stellar Republic’s Senate, it taken their ilks, the 1st Robotech Master Triumvirate immediately to repeat the same history by wresting the power of the Imperium from Robotech Elders & only restored them as mere symbol of Robotech civilization. At long last, Robotech Elders occupied the highest rank within the Triumvirate culture, but bereft of any power except that of traditional figures on top of Triumvirate hierarchy, the very dogma they pioneered, centuries before.

It is their final fates continued to be debatable, as there are evidence that Robotech Elders did not joined the Robotech Imperial Armada exodus to Earth, but recent information from Masters refugees suggested that Robotech Elders indeed caught up with the Imperial Armada in the late stages of 2nd Robotech War. If that is the case, one can surmised that Robotech Elders – Nimuul, Fallagar & Hepsis – perished alongside their civilization on the doorstep of Terran homeworld.

It is also interesting to note that Robotech Elders, by means of artificial neural conduit, able to communicate telepathically with their Robotech clones, the same traits inherited by their Robotech Masters clone series with bio-genetic improvements.

The Overlords of Robotechnology - Robotech Masters Triumvirate

The First Robotech Master Triumvirate are direct genetic copies of their progenitors, the Robotech Elders. Responsible in the early years of Robotech Mercantile Empire as military administrators of Zentraedi Regular Armies & overseers of Triumvirate cloning development project, they are the heirs of Robotech Elders. As Robotech Elders concentrated to administer the Empire & busily controlling the Empire’s growing economies, the Robotech Masters are tasked in charge of overall internal & external security matters via the Zentraedi Regular Armies & leading further development of Triumvirate societies aboard Masters mobile city-ships. Robotech Masters didn’t come to prominence until the Robotech Civil War commences, as during pre-Robotech Civil War period, Robotech Elders still heavily reliant towards Tyrolian non-clone Patrician & Senatorial classes to fill in administrative positions within planetary & colonial level.

As Robotech Civil War erupted, the Robotech Masters, particularly of the 1st Robotech Masters Triumvirate are immediately given broad executive & even punitive powers by ever ineffective Elders. These newfound responsibilities & commanding abilities, compounded with realization that they alone can dictate the outcome of the Holy War, gave these Robotech Masters confidence to independently interpret any orders by Robotech Elders to suit Masters own interest, & slowly but surely, the usurpation of Robotech Masters upon Robotech throne almost assured. Using Robotech Elders inefficiency in handling the destructive Robotech Civil War, the 1st Robotech Masters Triumvirate with the virtual assent from other Robotech Masters Triumvirates, seized power shortly after the conclusion of Robotech Civil War. The other Robotech Masters Triumvirates (in total 12 triplicate individuals – of Desu, Dera & Demi Triumviroid elite clone series), themselves direct copies of the 1st Robotech Masters Triumvirate, become Fleet Commanders within Imperial Armada flotillas, as each Masters commanded their own cityships & respective assigned battlegroups.

The 1st Robotech Masters are the prime mover of the Renaissance Era of the Imperium, responsible for massive re-colonisation efforts to replace drastically reduced Imperium non-clone populations post Robotech Civil War with Triumvirate clones. They virtually created far more repressive Robotech regime than that of former accommodative Elder’s pre Robotech Civil War’s Imperium, relegated native & non-clones Tyrolians as 2nd class citizens, limiting their roles to non administrative tasks. Eventually, all native Tyrolians are forbidden from space travel, save only to Tyrol & its immediate vicinities within Valivarre system, as to reduce contacts between cultured Tyrolians & the Triumvirate colonists, who by now as post Robotech Civil War era, the majority of the Robotech Imperium population.

The 1st Robotech Masters Triumvirate – Shaizan, Bowkaz & Dag – by now inheriting the more mundane tasks of administrating the entire Imperium, had to finally given significant autonomy towards the now growing Zentraedi Regular Armies. In terms of economies, Karbarrans who have being somewhat Imperium loyalists & most enduring citizens, are given monopolies & lucrative contracts, replacing the defunct pre-Robotech Civil War’s Tyrolian merchant classes (most perished during that war). Masters, in every aspect resembled the Robotech Elders physically & mentally in some extent, unfortunately do not possessed Robotech Elders’ wealth-making abilities & trade acumen. However, these Robotech Masters still maintain high degree of personal traits, with Shaizan as primed & tuned for as head of administration & inherited organizational skills, Bowkaz as head of military & inherited tactical judgements; while Dag as the head of scientific research & inherited intellectual abilities.

While Elders lacked in despotic resolves & sound tactical military judgements, their heirs have those qualities in spade, with the creation of elite Imperial Bioroid Forces & semi autonomous Tyrolian Border Fleet that answers solely to Masters wills. Alas, Robotech Masters also inherited their progenitors flaws, their dependence towards Zor Derelda, who still commanded great respect as father of Robotechnoloy & a mythic figure within Triumvirate lore. The 1st Robotech Master, Zor Derelda, this time mellowed by old age, engineered the Imperium downfall by withholding the true fertile Flower of Life & placating Masters by supplying infertile seeds sown from mutant Flower of Life. His death during an Invid ambush on one of his reseeding missions & subsequent realization that Zor Derelda managed to dupe the Masters by concealing the true whereabouts of the only available protoculture matrix served as prime example how Masters; like Elders simply lose out in long term calculated mind games with the late Zor.

With the Zentraedi Regular Armies destruction in 1st Robotech War in Sol System, Robotech Masters taken a calculated risks with Imperial Armada in tow, to retrace the their goliaths path to Sol-system & wrest back the protoculture matrix that rightfully theirs. Sufficed to say, this is not so much of a misjudgement as Masters do not leave the Imperium defenceless during this exodus, with Tyrolian Border Fleets taking up defensive positions all over Imperium. However, by doing so at the height of acute & severe energy crises that ultimately putting Masters as virtual despots caring only for their greed & power above that toward the fates of their Triumvirate citizens, native Tyrolians & Sentinels aliens alike.

In 2nd Robotech War, Masters again displayed their outstanding tactical abilities, unfortunately, their military successes were marred by protoculture shortages, & inimitable cultural contamination. However, one must realized, should Robotech Masters Imperial Armada arrived in Sol-System fully charged with fully stocked protoculture supplies, Terrans defenders would find themselves already conquered by new alien overlords instead of the Invid. However, as history shown otherwise, the Imperial Armada despite besets with acute protoculture shortages, fought on & brought humanity to its knees, practically fighting even one on one infantry duels until the destruction of the last of Masters flagships. The Robotech Masters civilization fought with great tenacity to the last breath, & nearly brought their enemy, the humanity down with them. The pyrrhic victory by humanity in 2nd Robotech War shown the tenacity of the Triumvirate clones & their ruthless leadership, the 1st Robotech Master Triumvirate. Ironically, it also taken a Zor-clone, this time Zor Prime – resurrected by Masters to lead elite Imperial Bioroid Forces - to finally exact personal vendetta against Masters by personally assassinating them, & ended the Triumvirate myth of immortality once & for all.

The Will of the Triumvirate - Clone Masters Triumvirate

On the third Triumvirate Hierarchy is the Clone Masters. In effect, Clone Masters serve 3 distinct purposes; political leaders & representative of Triumvirate clones, military strategists & tacticians, last but not least, the authoritative figures in controlling & enforcing Triumvirate Dogma upon Triumvirate masses. Most often than not, Clone Masters are the extension of their overlords, the Robotech Masters Triumvirates.

Clone Masters Triumvirate series are culled from the DNA databanks of original Tyrolian Senatorial class, with added cunnings & inherited the best qualities genes available from the clone series. To further improve the series, competitiveness qualities are pre-programmed into the selective Clone Masters Triumvirates. Unlike their Triumvirate subordinates, the Clone Masters are grown straight into adulthood from the cloning vats. Clone Masters series also are given less mental neural reprogramming, giving them to make selective collective decisions based on Triumvirate conditionings.

The 1st Clone Masters (Vieda, Viea & Viera Triumvirate clone series) served as Political Triumvirate aboard the Masters cityships, & while other sub-branch Clone Masters from specialised Prime series served as Triumvirate Battle Masters commanding the Triumviroid (lesser Bioroid pilots) pilots of Imperial Bioroid Forces. The Triumvirate Battlefield Commanders are directly responsible for every tactical moves & countermoves of the Bioroid sentries & Bioroid warriors on the combat fields. These combat specialised Clone Masters, in units of three, initiate direct controlling, direction & manoeuvring capabilities of elite Imperial Bioroid Forces to function as a logical combat force via telepathic manipulation as they’re able to channel much needed aggressions through the actions of the Bioroid pilots.

The 1st Clone Masters, especially the Political Triumvirate series controlled the non-combatant Triumvirate clones, worker bioroids, & providing Triumvirate societies with a semblance of administrative Triumvirate political structure. On major Imperium core-worlds & colonies, these Clone Masters served within their capacity as civilian administrators holding coveted post of Imperial Governor Triumvirate. As closing days of the Imperium begun with Invid crusade, many Clone Masters series; the Political Triumvirates that served as Imperial Governors & their Triumvirate Battle Masters perished alongside their Triumvirate colonists against the crusading Invid. All over the Empire, tales of epic, most often tragic stand off of desperate Triumvirate leaders, undoubtedly of Clone Masters fended off & sacrificing their lives alongside their Triumvirates survivors in one final charge against Invid invaders evoke deep feeling of respect & honor towards these fallen heroes. However, one can also argue the fates that befell the Clone Masters of the Imperial Armada that blockaded Earth in 2nd Robotech War, as they committed war crimes against humanity. Not even one triumvirate of Clone Masters series from Imperial Armada survived the 2nd Robotech War.

However, only two extraordinary cases where the Clone Masters of Political Triumvirates resisted their Triumvirate conditionings, whereby they’re the Imperial Governors of the two minor colony worlds that escaped Invid wrath & engineered the mass evacuation of their triumvirate colonists by negotiating & bribing the Tyrolian Border Fleet commanders to help relocate the 8 million strong Triumvirate clones to the Pirate’s Cluster. Those 2 Triumvirates overcome their Triumvirate compulsion by switching loyalties not to the Imperium & Masters, simply for the survival of their Triumvirate colonists wards & their Borderers patrons. Not surprisingly, they also cannot resisted the ‘cultural contamination’ tactics that SDF-3 used to pacify the Pirate’s Cluster inhabitants after years of harsh survival (when they become space pirates alongside the Borderers). These Clone Masters also instrumental in ending hostilities between the Triumvirates & UEEF by inking alliance that finally brought UEEF to Valivarre system & Tyrol in particular.

It is interesting to note that Clone Masters series that become Imperial Governors on Tyrol, & that of Sentinels worlds are not cultural resistance, having imbibing local & alien cultures while in residence. Although one has to concede that these ‘culturally-contaminated’ Clone Masters (of Tyrol & Sentinels worlds Imperial Governor Triumvirates, these Clone-Masters series are derived from Merchant class genetics) are of lesser qualities from their Clone Masters Triumvirates counterparts on Masters cityships & that of Political Triumvirates that hold the reins with Triumvirate colonists dominated the Masters colonies. This indeed intentional on Masters’ part, as the flexible Political Triumvirates are needed to administer cultured worlds under Imperium Dominion. Such is the case with the independent minded of the ‘cultured’ Clone Masters Imperial Governors, whom by all accounts survived the wave of Invid invasion by simply living off the generosity of their alien hosts, generally well protected by their former alien subjects. In the most bizarre cases, they lead Sentinels anti Invid resistance units on Garuda, Praxis even Tyrol.

Quote:
Addendum II:

At the point of these writings, surviving Clone Masters series, especially the enterprising former Imperial Governor Triumvirates of Tyrol, Praxis, Karbarra, Peryton, Garuda & Spheris have successfully assimilated into New Tyrol Republic. Due to their popularity to their former alien subjects, these former Imperial Governors by default become Tyrolian ambassadors to the respective Sentinels worlds. In other respects, the former Tyrol’s Imperial Governor Triumvirate returned to their old roots, embracing their genetics progenitor of Merchant class, by becoming the most successful Tyrolian conglomerate & successfully lobbying the lucrative contract from New Tyrol Republic to run refurbished automated factories & manufacturing centers on Tyrol. As for the two former Imperial Governors of Clone Masters triumvirates that led 8 millions Triumvirate colonists from Invid depradations, they’ve been elected to serve as Senators to their respective regions on Tyrol by the New Tyrol Republic.

The Robo-Scientists - Science Masters Triumvirate

On the fouth elite segment in the Triumvirate Hierarchy are the Science Masters Triumvirate clone series. Culled from the DNA of native Tyrolians of Patrician class, these specialized Robo-scientists are the only ones among the Robotech Masters’ higher ranking triumvirates who have a full understanding of the intricate workings of protoculture applications & Robotechnology. The Science Masters (of Migeru, Migea & Migere Triumvirate clone series) are directly responsible for redeveloping the protoculture applications techniques in advanced cloning & bio-cybernetics researches, robo-mechanics manufacturing & aerospace naval productions & bio-energy power generation. These Triumvirates continue to experiment with advanced Robotechnology, as well as developing & maintaining the elite Bioroid Imperial Forces, Imperial Armada spacecrafts, & all other robotechnological maintenance.

Much like their other Triumvirate counterparts, they are not physically oriented & do not possess specific Bioroid combat training or physical aptitude. Also like their fellow techno-masters, the Science Masters view other life forms as particularly interesting in the field of scientific discovery, but clearly inferior to them & that of Robotech Masters’ Triumvirate culture. Their most often callous views toward life of other micronian species in general, compounded by their cunningness to better serve their Robotech Masters, make them extremely dangerous in the grand scheme of Robotech Empire. Science Masters only take direct orders from either Masters or Clone Masters Triumvirates, which also limiting their scientific mental approaches, either enhanced or hampered within the scope of Triumvirate mental processes. Much like Clone Masters Triumvirates, the Science Masters possessed limited mental telepathic communication abilities.

Despite being primed for scientific research & development, the Science Masters Triumvirates are not known for their ability to be independently comprehending Zor’s technical & biological advance Robotechnology, which later induced Masters to reintroduce new blood in Science Masters gene pool, with that of late Zor Derelda. The first prototypes of Zor–subclass Prime series, are an astounding failure to reduplicate the late Zor’s genius & scientific abilities (the prototypes tend to be suicidal & even remotely placid, inheriting the death trauma – owing perhaps the late Zor’s tragic death), so much so only the last surviving clone of Zor Prime series is neurally reprogrammed to become Battlelord of the Fleet Triumviroid caste (Triumviroid Field Commander) instead of replacing the Science Masters as originally intended.

It is also interesting to note, the sub-branch of Science Masters from specialized Prime series (not to be confused of the abovementioned Zor Prime) are specifically tasked to oversee the smooth running of Zentraedi clone production centers & attending to subsequent technical maintenance aboard various Robotech Automated Factory Satellites & Robotech Repair Factories that served the Zentraedi Regular Armies. However, as protoculture crises deepens in Masters Empire, by early 2009AD, these Science Masters are recalled to man several terrestrial Protoculture production centres in Masters coreworlds, leaving & abandoning these automated mobile factories to state of disrepair & eventual automatic shutdowns.

As of today, none of the fanatical Science Masters Triumvirate clone-series survived the Invid Crusade & 2nd Robotech War.

The Mistresses Of The Cosmic Harp – Muse Triumvirate

Further down the Triumvirate Hierarchy, the Muse Triumvirates clone series (of Musica, Musie & Musel clone batches) are accorded special priviledges within Triumvirate societies. Particularly important & pivotal to Masters scheme in Triumvirate political stranglehold & societal control, the Muse Triumvirates answer only to the assigned Clone Masters Triumvirates. Furthermore, only these specialized all-maiden Triumvirates are genetically encoded with specialized memory engrams detailing the myths, legends, history & development of Robotech civilization, (very much the same as that encoded into Zentraedi Domillans’ neural engrams – albeit within Zentraedi’s point of view) making the Muses as the keepers of Robotech lore.

These rare Triumvirates, usually only 12 triumvirates at only given time, are instrumental to Masters given only Robotech Muses are allowed to operate the Robotech Cosmic Harp, an audio musical device. Robotech Cosmic Harp emit light beams in which at the hands of experienced Muse, will emit a musical tone through direct contact via hand gestures upon the light beams. The repeated & sometimes intricate process will create various harmonious music tracks, usually composed from old Tyrolian psalms that will stir a soothing effect on the Triumvirate clones. The Robotech Cosmic harp unit played by expert Robotech Muses, with various melodious tunes can be used to soothe & sedate, even stimulate, motivate & direct clone activities according to Triumvirate principles & ideals.

Masters practiced this sinister societal control method in ensuring capitulation of their entire Triumvirate societies by making the integration of Robotech Cosmic Harp melodies as part of the inimitable & embedded facet of Triumvirate culture. Robotech Cosmic Harp tunes supposedly elicits calm & docileness within Triumvirate clone societies, actually function on subconscious minds of every Triumvirate clones, suppressing any primitive emotions & killing off any independent thought processes on psychological level on each Triumvirate clones. Throughout this way, the Robotech Masters, down to Clone Masters may maintain a constant, harmonious pattern of the activities of their Triumvirate clone societies, bending them to their Triumvirate Compulsion (which akin to Zentraedi’s Imperative Dogma).

Upon the absence of Muse Triumvirates from the 4th Quadrant, carted off by Masters during their exodus to Sol System, in the height of social anarchy that gripped the entire Imperium, the sudden disappearances of Robo-cosmic tunes degenerate the Triumvirate colonists on Imperial coreworlds & colonies to long-suppressed emotions. Bereft of mental stimulation, the Triumvirate clones, always pampered during the Imperial long reign over the centuries, become confused, agitated & openly hostiles towards their Triumvirate Terminator Guards on various worlds. These clones openly questioned Robotech Masters whereabouts, & from time to time mounted aggressive violent riots – partly because of Masters exodus, & that of hardships suffered due to galaxy-wide protoculture energy crises that crippled the entire Imperium.

Muse Triumvirates most often credited with higher percentage of independent thought processes on individual level than that permitted to other clones. It is suggested by recent study, should anything untoward tragic event occurs to Triumvirate political higher ups, the Muses will have the technical, political & social abilities to lead Triumvirate societies from scratch, making these rare Muse clone-series as possible replacements to both Clone Masters & Science Masters. It is also interesting to note, in the final event of 2nd Robotech War, several Robotech Muses Triumvirates conspired in leading passive rebellions amongst Masters dispossessed Triumvirate clones. Apart from the UEF 15th ATAC interference on Masters flagship (which costed one Muse casualty of Musica-Allegra-Octavia Muse Triumvirate), other Muses Triumvirates are far too crafty on their own, each Muse Triumvirates survived the destruction of their respective flagships by manipulating their way via Cosmic harp to befuddle their Terminator Guards & stolen assault crafts to make final exits during the final cataclysmic naval battle between Imperial Armada & UEF fleet.

Sufficed to note, all 12 Triumvirates of Robotech Muse (discounting one Muse death of Musica-Allegra-Octavia Muse Triumvirate) are amongst the 175,000 Triumvirate clone refugees aboard Tokugawa class carrier – UES Marcus Antonius that returned to Tyrol in 2033AD. Their eventual return is immediately embraced by 8 million former Triumvirate colonists that resettled Tiresia 2 years earlier in 2031 with Zentraedi Borderers.

Quote:
Addendum III:

It must also be noted that surviving Muses (apart of the Tyrol’s latest pop sensation Bowie & The Muses – Allegra & Musica) with their admittedly far larger technical background are immediately recruited into Tiresian Robotech Science Institute, at the behest of Pro-Consul Cabell amidst shrouds of secrecy upon their repatriation to Tyrol in 2033AD. New Tyrol Republic continues to keep mum over the Muses secretive involvement at the Institute from 2033 – 2040, however, recent unconfirmed report leaked over to the Tiresian press revealed that the Muses Triumvirates are pivotal personnels under Robotech Master Rem Derelda supervision that worked on Second Robotech Facsimile Project, the new Protoculture Matrix. At the point of these writings, official Republican sources merely stated the current status of these precious Muses as that of full-time academic lecturers & researchers at the Institute – which are partly true given the rapid surge of undergraduate & postgraduate intakes from 2034 onwards (admittedly, the new enrollments most often comprised of young males from native Tyrolians, naturalized Triumvirate clones, micronised Zentraedi & surprisingly, Terran migrants). Even Pro-Consul Cabell refusal to cooperate to this very issue as of the last date of this essay’s publication compounded to this unshed mystery.

Masters’ Elite Robowarriors - Triumviroids

From the extensive Zentraedi successful clone series, especially culled from the Officers clone batches, Masters experimented with the new slave-warrior class, albeit in micronised & genetically modified to further enhanced these new Robo-warriors to man the elite, all-Triumvirate Imperial Bioroid Forces. It comes as no surprises, given the Bioroid prowess & robotechnology – continued to be unsurpassed even by today’s standard & which technology continued to baffle the best scientific minds that UEEF & Sentinel Confederation could produced. From almost ‘invisible / undefeatable’ Bioroid series mecha employed solely by Masters, the Triumviroids – specialized Bioroid pilots – are created to further enforce the will of the Imperium on every Imperial coreworlds & its immediate colonies.

Bioroid Basic Pilot - First Stage Triumviroid

Perhaps the most rudimentary of Triumviroid clone series, the 1st stage Triumviroid can be aptly describe as Terran’s ‘The Living Dead’. Most often this so-called 1st stage Triumviroids are recycled from clone disposal facilities, which unused & rejected clone bodies undergone a series of surgical modification in which biological diodes & nodes are integrated within these clones’ motor nervous system. These Triumviroids later are installed with necessary neural telepathic engrams specifically needed for basic Command, Communication & Control functions – only activated upon Triumvirate Battle Masters (a sub branch of Clone Masters Triumvirate series) mental urgings.

This basic Triumviroid clones are an attempt to satisfy the basic requirements needed to create a biological link with a bioroid as the secret to this elite mecha mobility is interaction with a living creature. Without a necessary humanoid pilot to connect with it in a symbiotic linkage, the bioroid mecha is just another machine. However, when joined with a basic 1st stage Triumviroid, it can respond as an extension of that individual, with an agility that is until now impossible to recreate in successive Terran-based mecha design interfaces.

The 1st stage Triumviroid clones cannot really be called alive in a strictest sense, as these individuals will remain catatonic or vegetative state (ie clinically ‘brain-dead’) outside their respective mechas. Within their mechas, upon activated, they are controlled directly via telepathic guide from Triumvirate Battle Masters. However, upon remaining dormant, these Triumviroid undergone what Terran termed as temporary biological shutdown, until reactivated for combat or other purposes by respective Triumvirate Battle Masters. In a way, the 1st stage Triumviroid function like a living organic computer in which it recognizes, responds & reacts to telepathic inputs of the users, namely from Battle Masters. These clones are given ‘artificial souls’ via Battle Masters telepathic suggestions, as their limited brain function only solely pre-programmed to receive specific combat instructions.

The 1st Triumviroid clone series are considered the lowliest & cheapest grunts Masters can produced in unlimited quantities. This clone series are exclusively piloting the mass produced Nous’Dohl (Warrior) Bioroid series – the standard Blue Tactical Bioroid units that formed the staple of Imperial Bioroid Forces & the limited T’siendral (Sentinel) Bioroid – the rare Green Worker Bioroid series. It is pointless to provide statistical data on this Triumviroid clone series, deemed by the Masters as other cannon fodders that can be rapidly replaced like regular Zentran troopers.

Quote:
Addendum IV:

If additional clone bodies cannot be manufactured quickly enough to satisfy combat needs, the Robotech Masters may use other, intelligent humanoids to be converted into Bioroid Basic pilots. The humanoid will be subjected to terrible mind wiping process known as the Zylonic Mental Probe in which erases the subject’s memory & emotion, & forcibly reprograms the empty mind with necessary Bioroid piloting engrams. Not unlike a lobotomy, as the mind is blank, except for its small area of programming, the victim is susceptible to the telepathic control of the Clone Masters. However, survival rates of humanoid specimens undergoing the Zylonic Mind Probe are extremely horrendous, & it is not even a practical solution to Masters cold calculations, unless it would sometime served as a tactical diversion as evident in 2nd Robotech War. Excerpts taken from Genesis: Second Robotech War:
“However, in 10 September 2029, the Robotech Masters launch a surprise attacks against the civilian populace of Monument City, & 200 prisoners are taken for intelligence purposes. UEG issues reports of 200 human prisoners as casualties of the surprise raid, in order not to cause more panic amongst Monument City’s residents. On Masters side, the 200 prisoners have undergone extensive neural probes in order to learn more about the primitive micronian culture. The effects of Masters unorthodox intel-gathering procedure renders the prisoners into comatose & brain-dead state, thus they are disposed as micronians proven to be useless to be re-used as Bioroid pilots.”

Frequently though, Masters would always disposed of the captured micronian specimens rather than turning them into 1ststage Triumviroid as it will consumed more time & resources available. Most often, the Science Masters would simply gather DNA samples from the specimens, & created a whole new Triumvirate clones or Triumviroids from the micronians genetic samples.

Bioroid Android Pilot - Second Stage Triumviroid

Unlike 1st stage Triumviroids, 2nd stage Triumviroids are actually living specimens, mostly come from various specific Triumviroid clone series. Specially developed to pilot more advanced Bioroid mecha series & capable of making independent tactical decisions, these elite Triumviroids are comparable to Zentraedi Officer Clone series. Much like their Zentraedi counterparts, the 2nd stage Triumviroids are genetically modified & developed from cloning vats straight into adulthood, complete with internal biological diodes & nodes built-ins needed for Bioroid interfaces, ingrained necessary Bioroid piloting skills & false memory engrams that compels these Triumviroids to fanatically obey the Triumvirate order (Triumvirate Compulsion, a derivative of Zentraedi’s Imperative Dogma).

Outside their mechas, the 2nd stage Triumviroids served as Terminator Imperial Guards, either fully armored in their Terminator Guard Armor or simply outfitted with Imperial Guard uniforms. As elites, they’re distinguishable from general Triumvirate populace, mostly doing policing & guard duties aboard city-ships or Imperial Triumvirate population centers strewn all over Imperium core-worlds & colonies. It is also interesting to note, nearly all 2nd stage Triumviroids most will voluntarily undergone biological android enhancement programmes, replacing their normal bodyparts to be augmented with android spareparts, making them quite possibly, superior in physical aspects - especially those serving with battle-hardened Terminator Imperial Guards. One way or another, 2nd stage Triumviroids are often referred as Bioroid Android Pilot series, based on their penchant to continuously upgrade their clone bodies with supplementary android parts; in bid to better serve their overlords, the Robotech Masters.

Once within their respective Bioroid mechas, the 2nd stage Triumviroid clones willingly surrender their mental function to Triumvirate Battle Masters, who will increased their effectiveness in battles by telepathic suppression of either emotion or individual thought, in which these Bioroid Android pilot’s brains are emptied from these distracting characteristics. The brains of 2nd stage Triumviroid simply reverted to pre-programmed combat modes, exclusive to these Triumviroids series only, & primed with primal killing instinct, basic actions & reactions (strike & counter strike, parry & dodge). At this point, 2nd stage Triumviroids are fully consumed with battle lusts, to kill or be killed as to fulfill the Triumvirate Compulsion – the ultimate sacrifice to the altar of Robotechnology (in this respects, 2nd stage Triumviroids reminiscently mimick their Zentraedi Regular Armies goliath warrior slaves). Any semblance of strategy & tactical abilities, teamwork cooperation & military objectives are telepathically instilled by respective Triumvirate Battle Masters. In this respects, Battle Masters acts as generals, coordinating tactical movements & battle formations of both 1st stage (expendable troops) & 2nd stage Triumviroids – of whom advanced Bioroid Android Pilots are highly valued by Battle Masters.

As note of interest as evident in late 2nd Robotech War, the Faido Triads Triumviroid series, served as the Masters top secret polizei & head of city-ships securities, are often paired up with to their Muse counterparts, as part of on-going social experimentation conducted under Clone Masters supervision. In reality, the Clone Masters slowly realized the Muse Triumvirates tend to be superficial & a tad rebellious in their Triumvirate beliefs, & by having top Triumviroid Triads as mates to Robotech Muses, these Triumviroids act as eyes & ears for Clone Masters to detect insubordination & possible cultural contamination effects on the Muses. However, this social experimentation is limited to Karno Faido Triumvirate with that of Musica-Allegra-Musica Muse Triumvirate aboard Masters flagship.

The 2nd stage Triumviroid clone series most often piloted the blue Advanced Bioroid Scout Sub Commander series known as T'sienramp (Observer). These specialized Sub-Commander mecha often indistinguishable from the mass produced Nous’Dohl (Warrior) Tactical Bioroid series, giving the Bioroid Android Pilot better survivalibility from selective targeting of their nemesis. The Tsienramp Bioroid Sub-Commander units most often had been seen escorting respective Battlelords of the Fleet in various raids & military engagements against UEDF during 2nd Robotech War.

On many Imperial worlds & colonies, Bioroid Android pilots fought courageously alongside their Borderers comrades to stem the Invid Crusade. A small number of 2nd stage Triumviroids survived the Invid massacre on Tyrol & Sentinel worlds, became active anti-Invid guerillas leading local alien & Tyrolian population against Invid occupation & planetary garrison units. As those Triumviroids that escaped alongside 8 million Triumvirate colonists to the Pirates’ Cluster, they integrated with former Tyrolian Border Fleet personnel in becoming space pirates occasionally raiding the Invid protoculture supply runs & pirating the UEEF outlying colonies. Sufficed to note, these space-pirate Triumviroids alongside the famed Borderers were adopted & drafted as New Tyrol Republic military – The Republican Guards.

Invid Fighter Triumvirs – Third Stage Triumviroid

The latest development of Triumviroid clone series would be that of Invid Fighter Triumvirs. Developed late in the final stages of 2nd Robotech War, exclusively to pilot the newest Invid Fighter Bioroids, this final series of Triumviroid is known as Vada Prime. Unlike other Triumviroids, Vada Prime clone series are the at the pinnacle of Triumvirate ideology manifested on combat doctrine. They are the most advanced of the three types of Bioroid piloting entities & fully developed combatant Triumviroid clones with an active, thinking mind. Programmed with Triumvirate Compulsion somewhat like the Zentraedi, the latest Invid Fighter Triumvirs fighting alongside their triplet clone-siblings are triplicate warriors who acted with unison without fear of death & quite literally, fighting machines.

Unlike the other Bioroid pilots, the Invid Fighter Triumvirs become literally bonded with their mechas. Linked with much more superior Triumvirate mental symbiosis with Battle Masters, these newest Robotech Master's elite troopers responds with even greater speed & agility than the 2nd stage Triumviroids, truly a deadly Triumvirate foes. Developed specifically in principle to combat & offset the Invid superior numbers, this clone series excels against humanity, even briefly the Triumvirs almost replaced the invaluable red Bioroid Leader pilots. The Invid Fighter Triumvirs are basically identical to the 2nd stage Triumviroids, except that they are cloned as triplets & fight as triumvirates. During combat, the deadly Triumvirs triplets fight & act as one unit. All three will attack the same target, fire at the same time with pinpoint accuracy, & manoeuvre at the same time.

Capable of acting & carrying out the Triumvirate dogma literally on the battlefield, the conjoin Triumvirs are almost undefeatable. They are self-contained & capable of performing the three basic functions of combat: data accumulation, analysis, & response, all within milliseconds. Performed in triplicate unison, they are the embodiment of Triumvirate essence & together with the latest of Inbida T’siendel (Invid Fighter) Bioroid mecha series, almost invincible. The Triumvirs are far more fanatical towards Triumvirate Compulsion, & often find Terran individuality as blasphemous concepts & must be obliterated & extinguished at all cost. Clinging to “Three will always be as One", the Vada Prime Triumvirs draw on the essence of the Invid Fighter Bioroid systems: the transference of power, awareness, thought-Protoculture energy-back & forth among the members of each triune unit & their mechas, on a millisecond basis. This occurrence making each machines & Triumvir pilots will be triple effective in the combat theatre. Their creed to Triumvirate Compulsion was, "One for three & three for one; in thought, action, firepower, & reaction."

Bioroid Leader Pilot – Battle Lords of the Fleet

The most elite of the Triumviroid clone series would be that of Bioroid Leader pilots. Culled from the successful Zentraedi Fleet Commander clone series databank, the Bioroid Leader Triumviroid series can be equated as the best of the best, whose tactical abilities & battle prowess on par or exceeded the Zentraedi - Meltran Ace Officer clone series (specialized Quadrono CO units). The Bioroid Leader pilots often leading massed Bioroid mecha battle formations & become captains aboard Roil Tiluvo Bioroid Assault carriers. These exceptional Triumviroid series, would often become self-designated Battle Lord of The Fleet within Imperial Bioroid Forces. The Bioroid Leader Triumviroids are easily known from their ‘Prime’ & ‘Khane’ name series. These elite Triumviroid series only exclusively present aboard the Imperial Armada, as Masters retain exclusive rights in retaining the brightest & deadliest Triumviroids to lead the Imperial Bioroid Forces.

Within each Bioroid Leader Triumviroids, their Triumvirate Compulsion are far stronger & thus making them as staunch believers of Triumvirarate Dogma. Their ranks are equal to Battle Masters Triumvirate (sub-branch of Clone Masters series), but unlike the Battle Masters series that often safely sound from battlefield, controlling 1st & 2nd stage Triumviroids with telepathic tactical command within the bridge of an Assaul Carrier or Taul Detrel Destroyer vessels. The Bioroid Leader Triumviroids thrived on battlefield, either in space or surface engagements, reminiscent of their progenitors, the Zentraedi Field Officers. Unlike the 1st stage Triumviroids that basically ‘living zombies’ or 2nd stage Triumviroids who’re under direct control & supervision of Battle Masters during battlefield engagements, the Bioroid Leader Triumviroids are of independent minded individuals, competed against each other for competency, battlefield promotions, tactical abilities, battle endurance prowess & garnering fanatical followings amongst their 2nd stage Triumviroids subordinates.

The most successful Bioroid Leader Pilots will ultimately be promoted to become Imperial Fleet Officers, commanding their own Taul Detrel System Destroyers. Rivalries amongst these Imperial Fleet Officers & their Battle Lords Triumviroids are almost as intense as that of Zentraedi Battlefield Commanders & Zentraedi Fleet Commanders. Frequent bickerings, outright insubordinations are common amongst Bioroid Leader Triumviroids; encouraged by Clone Masters; ultimately on how to better served to the glory of the Imperium. Bioroid Leader Triumviroids are well-versed in art of war, ingrained within their neural engrams with advanced Diwgadras’U (Zentraedi Martial Art) trainings, master of tactical cunnings & battlefield trickery.

Glorified heroes amongst their Triumvirate societies, Bioroid Leader Triumviroids lived on far generous lifestyle & greater comforts provided by Clone Masters. The elite Triumviroids often have their own set of 2nd stage Triumviroid Terminator Imperial Guards in tow, escorting them as battlefield subordinates. The Bioroid Leader Triumviroids often given far advanced Red Bioroid Leader mecha series known as Gister’Dohl (Warlord). The Red Bioroids piloted by these Triumviroids proved to be far deadlier against any nemesis they encountered, given their survivability matched those of resilient & tougher Zentraedi Field Commanders & Meltran Ace clone series. A Red Bioroid Leader with its flanking Bioroid Sub-Commander escorts often cut large swath of destruction within any enemy mecha formations & often seemingly leading a suicidal & fanatical charge against enemy troops. However, it is their tactical cunningness, penchant for destruction, warmaking abilities that set them apart from the lesser Triumviroids. However, the Bioroid Leader Triumviroids were sidelined after the introduction of Vada Prime, a Triumviroid clone series dedicated to piloting the Invid Fighter Bioroids. Despite this minor setback, the Bioroid Leader Triumviroids finally retain their commands, leading hordes of Invid Fighter Bioroids at their helm in the final campaigns against UEDF on Earth.

Not many Bioroid Leader Triumviroids survived the Imperial Armada’s demise at the end of 2nd Robotech War. Atleast one Battle Lord of the Fleet, Dalmeric Khane leads significant Bioroid raiders in a series of devastating & bloody insurgency campaign against UEF survivors & Terran settlements (reminiscent of Khyron Kravshera & Zeraal Braedur malcontentism). His renegade forces was finally destroyed during a joint-op surgical strike by UEF 15th ATAC & the famed EF spec-for Wolfe Pack on his headquarters. With the death of Dalmeric Khane, the terrestrial mop-up campaign by UEF against surviving pockets of renegade Bioroid forces marked the end of 2nd Robotech War in 2031AD.

Quote:
Addendum V:

The most famous of them all, perhaps the greatest Battle Lord of the Imperial Armada would be Zor Prime. He was an exception, given he was the only surviving clone of Zor–subclass Prime series, whose clone units destined to become new Science Masters series. The progaramme was besets with failure as the prototypes Zor-clones inherited death trauma of late Zor Derelda, suicidal & suffering extreme depression bordering towards self destruction. The entire clone series terminated, only the last surviving & functional Zor-clone is neurally reprogrammed to become Battlelord of the Fleet Triumviroid caste (Triumviroid Field Commander); becoming the most cunning, the most devious, the most feared of all Battle Lords of the Fleet. However, as history has shown, this Zor-clone finally submerged with his progenitor’s memories after prolonged contact with Micronians (specifically UEDF’s 15th ATAC) during his stint as Masters’ spy in mid 2nd Robotech War. Consumed with vengeance, it is with certainty that Zor Prime was the individual responsible in assassinating the Robotech Masters in late 2030AD. Despite his effort to redress his progenitor’s past mistakes, he was also the catalyst whose selfless sacrifice to destroy the last surviving protoculture matrix inevitably lead to dispersing of Flower of Life spores all over North America, awaiting the Invid invasion of Earth in 2031AD.

THE TRIUMVIR BORDERERS

Special mention needed to describe a new sub-species of Triumviroids, known as the Triumvir Borderers of the autonomous Tyrolian Border Fleet that answered directly under Robotech Masters. The Triumvir Borderers make up of nearly 30% of this elite Imperium Taskforce, most often served in far-flung of Imperium frontiers. These Triumvirs are far more fanatical in their devotion to the Triumvirate Compulsion, practically each one of these Borderers are specialized Triumviroid clones that are far tougher with advanced altered DNA structures to increase their survival. These are the latest advanced bio-androids, in which already become new Triumviroid sub species, far more superior than average Triumviroid clones, & on individual basis, the Borderers are on equal term with any average Bioroid Leader Pilot Triumviroid series. The Triumvir Borderers served & lead the Zentraedi Borderer comrades, become the elite Bioroid pilots serving the Tyrolian Border Forces (which is separated from Masters’ Imperial Bioroid Forces or Dolza’s Zentraedi Regular Armies). The Triumvir Borderers are at the pinnacle of Triumviroid artificial evolution, & these new breeds of Triumviroid also given far advanced & specialised elite Biorod series, the Tzensi’Dohl (Noble Warrior) & Szatchi’Dohl (Warlock) for their mecha complement.

Not only that, specially selected trained units of Triumvir Borderers are also specialized in infiltration, sabotage & assassination missions, known as Nous-Grandiel units - which are equivalent to Terran’s World War II Nazi Gestapo or SS units - that are feared by every Triumvirate higher ups (from Triumvirate civillians to even Clone Masters). The Nous Grandiel units will most often infiltrated the Triumvirate societies ranks to weed out any subversive clones that shown discontent to their Triumvirate conditioning or shown any abnormal emotions usually associated with early signs of cultural contamination, & any higher ranking Clone Masters & even advanced Triumviroid warriors that harbors outright rebellion against the Triumvirate Compulsion. Periodical purges done by Nous Grandiel units against higher ranking Triumvirates (Clone Masters / Science Masters / Bioroid Leader Triumviroids) suspected of outright rebellions (terminated via assassinations) or disappearance of an entire Bioroid Infantry Corps suspected of cultural contamination (involved outright massacre in remote border of the Imperium) put fear even the hearts of the most staunch Triumvirates.

Only the veterans of Zentraedi Borderers can matched the tenacity, ferocity & fervour of the Triumvir Borderers, whom deeply respected by their Zentraedi Borderers subordinates. In any major operations spearheaded by the Tyrolian Border Fleet, these Triumvirs are the head of operations of many military campaigns, as they are independent from the control of Battle Masters. Independent decision making & their tactical abilities matched those Zentraedi Fleet Commanders & Zentraedi Field Officers, with the cunningness inherited from their Bioroid Leader Triumviroids cousins.

It must also be known that the development of Triumvir Borderers are the next phase in Masters development of biological bioroid warriors – to correct any flaws evident in average Triumviroid series. Not only that, the Borderers also served as Imperium last line of defence against any possible foe, which also factors in eliminating possible rebellious Triumvirate societies or selected insubordinate Triumviroid Bioroid infantry corps if need be. Although the Borderers do not enjoyed the numerical superiority in both mechas & naval vessels that are evident with Imperial Bioroid Forces, its their far more quality mechas & advanced naval vessels (each equipped with Reflex cannons) plus all the best Triumviroid qualities available in their reengineered DNA structures that give the Borderers the qualitative edge over the average Triumviroid overwhelming quantitative factors.

The last guardians of the Empire, the Triumvir Borderers fought their last stand leading formations of their Zentraedi Borderers units in many Imperium coreworlds & colonies to stem the Invid tide. Despite being besets with extreme protoculture shortages, the Borderers ferocities & tenacities in defending the Imperium often turn Invid advances to bloody bloodbaths, yielding horrendous casualties against Invid piloted mechanized forces. However, outgunned, overrunned & finally outmanouvered by Invid hordes, tales of epic struggle of the Triumvir Borderers & their Zentraedi Borderers units in defending every last inch of Imperium against Invid crusade resonated even to Tyrol & entire 4th Quadrant until this day. Their exploits in the latter days of the Imperium become stuffs of legends that influence contributes to insurgency campaign mounted by Sentinels miltias & Tyrolian rebels against the Invid occupation forces.

Quote:
Addendum VI:

The selfless & heroic deeds of the last surviving 125,000 Borderers that initiated the evacuations of 8 million Triumvirate colonists from two fringe worlds to isolated asteroid star system (known as Pirate’s Cluster) marked their integrity to the highest degree. The level of cooperation between the Triumvirs & their Zentraedi comrades within this vaunted Tyrolian Border Fleet contrasted greatly with the disdain slave-overlordship between Masters & the Zentraedi Regular Armies. The surviving Borderers, Zentraedi & Triumvirs alike overcome their Imperative Dogmas & Triumvirate Compulsion conditionings by switching their undying loyalties no longer to Masters, but to 8 million Triumvirate refugees wards. The Triumvir Borderers take to pirating alongside their now micronised Zentraedi Borderers brethrens, & they become equals as space pirates, further blurring the lines between these two distantly artificially related Tyrolian derived sub-species.

At the end of their pirating careers, after the heavy naval battle engagements between the space pirates & elements of EF Pioneer Mission in Pirate’s Cluster, the Borderers finally capitulated to age-old emotions after being bombarded by Lynn Minmay’s music, engineered by EF Fleet Admiral, Breetai Kridanik. The Triumvirs, longed for the lost Muse harmonic stirrings were the first to fall prey to the cultural contamination alongside their Triumvirate refugees, & pressured their Zentraedi Borderers brethrens to gave up their arms. The outcome is the alliance with EF & become the impetus that finally brought EF to Valivarre star-system. Shortly after Tyrol’s liberation from the Invid in 2031, the entire 125,00 former Borderers & reformed space pirates become Tyrolian Republican Guard, again taken the mantle to protect Tyrol from any aggression.

Conclusion

Triumvirate history is full of false history. From the once proud & mighty Triumvirate Robotech civilization that ruled a large part of the galaxy, later to be reduced to survivors clueless & stranded on alien Earth planet & while the rest trying to resist the Invid crusade, the Triumvirate as a people, as a distinct culture, shoud not be forgotten. It is interesting to note Triumvirate cultural heritage within surviving Triumvirate refugees (the 8 million Triumvirate colonists of Pirate’s Cluster & 175,000 Triumvirate survivors of 2nd Robotech War) embracing humanity has become slowly disappearing over less than two decades, as these former Triumvirates identify themselves as larger part of humanity, no longer wanted anything to do with their Triumvirate past. The deaths of nearly all higher ranking Triumvirates (except the crafty Muse Triumvirates & the ingenious Clone Masters Triumvirate Governors of Sentinel worlds) the end of the Triumvirate culture, signaling that Triumvirate society as a race & a culture will faded indefinitely.

It took a special breed of Triumvirate to carry on with atleast a vestige of Triumvirate racial identity & proudly protects some aspect of Triumvirate cultural heritage – these are the Triumvir Borderers – the last of vestiges of the Empire, & ironically also its liberator. With the help of New Tyrolian Republic, finally the Triumvirs & their 8 million Triumvirate colonists gained a homeland in Tettelian sector & thrived as free & liberated individuals. Special thanks to Robotech Master Cabell, Pro Consul of New Tyrolian Republic; Mr Bowie Grant, Mistresses Musica & Octavia of Bowie & The Muses; finally Senator Lantas Prime (a boisterous, generous & delightful host - the author might add - formerly of Tyrolian Imperial Triumvirate Governor pre Invid Invasion, later de-facto leader of Tyrolian anti-Invid guerilla units post Invid Invasion) of New Forasi Protectorate in Tettelia sector, Tyrol for their gracious assistance & cooperation extended to the author during the extensive research done for this endeavors.

However, to mark the end of these remarkable chapters, one needs to mention of past Robotech Civil War. Ironically enough, despite Disciples of Zor defeats at the hands of loyalist Zentraedi Regular Armies, Tyrolian Border Fleet & Imperial Bioroid Forces, the long ideological war theoretically actually won by Disciples of Zor, as successive generation of liberated Triumvirate survivors, Triumvirs & Zentraedi Borderers alikes adopted the Republic system of governance & Tyrolian Republican Guards - now Tyrol’s military – was a designation adopted by Robotech rebels units. At long last, Robotech Masters & their Triumvirate dogma lose out the ideological Holy War, beaten not by their rivals, but by their own Triumviroid warriors & their Triumvirate subjects, who are finally adopted & recognized as equals by their Tyrolian natives cousins.

This author would like to end this article with an ode composed by Mistress Musica following the destruction of Masters Triumvirate civilization at the end of 2nd Robotech War:

“Now our slaves, the Robotech Masters, are passed away
Now all our Protoculture balefires burn low
Now the Shapings turn; we surrender the stage to Invid and Human
Our cold light leaves the Universe
We see at the last that
Those who remain behind know no fear of the darkness
And we ourselves learn
What it is to weep”

- Death Song of Robotech Elders.

THE ORIGINAL ROBOTECH MASTERS

BY: PROF. DR JACKSON MCKINNEY, EXTRA TERRESTRIAL STUDY – NEW MACROSS UNIVERSITY

Unlike that of Robotech Masters Triumvirate, the original Robotech Masters are those crowned by former Stellar Republican Senate, each one of them pioneering the field of Robotechnology & protoculture research. The individuals are:

- The First Robotech Master; Lord Zor Derelda of Philosopher class who is responsible for the discovery of Invid Flower of Life & subsequent pioneering protoculture bio-energy research & development for advancement of Stellar Republic. He is credited as father of Robotechnology & held the current commercial patent of protoculture applications in wide ranging industries. He was also credited as the ‘spiritual leader’ by the Robotech Rebel faction (influenced by his pro-Republican & anti-Triumvirate tracts) that declared Holy War against Masters’ faction. Frustrated by Elders & Masters excesses, he destroyed all records regarding protoculture production researches & committed the sensitive information to memory, immediately making Masters dependent upon him for new protoculture production. He secretly supplied the Imperium with sterile seeds & introduced sterile mutant Flower of Life, while secretly stashing the original fertile species & the last viable protoculture matrix aboard his customized Makross battlefortress. The aging & older Zor who shunned his last life extension treatment (recorded as late of 1922 CE according to EVE records) as part of his final defiant against Masters, finally met his doom in 1999 AD, after his reseeding mission with Borderers escorts were ambushed by Invid forces, but his battlefortress with its pre-programmed AI folded to parts unknown. Zor delivered his final blow against the Empire by taking protoculture secrets to his death.

- The Second Robotech Master; Lord Vard of Patrician class. Credited alongside Zor as part of Azstraph technovoyager crew that found Optera & subsequent contact with Invid civilization. Appointed as Stellar Republic’s Ambassador to lead First Contact expeditions to various worlds. A staunch Republican, he was put under house arrest alongside Zor for penning various anti-Imperium tracts. An exo-archeologist by profession, he helped throughout Zor’s expeditions in identifying new worlds for reseeding missions, & avid chronicler of various Sentinels & other species the expedition encountered during sporadic deep-space missions. He also quietly supported Zor’s passive rebellion in the final days of the Imperium post Robotech Civil War, both he & Zor were inseparable & close confidants until their olden age (both Robotech Masters boycotted their last life extension treatment session & vowed to age old gracefully, after centuries of youthful immortality). True to be loyal friend to the core, he perished alongside Zor Derelda during the Invid ambush of their last mission together.

- The Third Robotech Master; Lord Nimuul of Merchant class. Pioneer of protoculture applications in heavy industries & manufacturing sectors for advancement of Stellar Republic. Founder of Robotech Consortium. Self appointed leader of the shadowy Triumvirate movement & father of Triumvirate Dogma. Alongside his triplet brethrens, established Robotech Mercantile Empire by force. (Please refer to the Robotech Elder’s section of this article).

- The Fourth Robotech Master; Lord Fallagar of Merchant class. Pioneer of protoculture applications in military technology, specifically the development of advanced mechas & combat spacecrafts for advancement of Stellar Republic. Co-founders of Robotech Consortium. One of self appointed leaders of the shadowy Triumvirate movent & father of Triumvirate Dogma. Alongside his triplet brethrens, established Robotech Mercantile Empire by force. (Please refer to the Robotech Elder’s section of this article).

- The Fifth Robotech Master; Lord Hepsis of Merchant class. Pioneer of protoculture applications in bio-technology, specifically the development of Zentraedi slaves as cheap offworld laborers for advancement of Stellar Republic. Co-founders of Robotech Consortium. One of self appointed leaders of the shadowy Triumvirate movent & father of Triumvirate Dogma. Alongside his triplet brethrens, established Robotech Mercantile Empire by force. (Please refer to the Robotech Elder’s section of this article).

- The Sixth Robotech Master; Lord Cabell of Senatorial class. A former Zor Derelda’s student (many current chroniclers mistook him as Zor’s teacher, while the reverse is true), he spend his early years studying under Zor’s tutelage since he was 5 years old - Terran estimates. A talented young genius & already an able bio-scientist, he was awarded the Robotech Master title by the late Stellar Government, the youngest ever recipient for such title (from his own words, he was 15 years old - Terran estimates) for his outstanding achievement in bio-genetic research for agro-industry applications within Stellar Republic. Unlike Zor Derelda & Vard, both staunch Republican, Cabell parted ways with them & become staunch Robotech Imperium loyalist. He remained an Imperium loyalist during the Robotech Civil War but grew disenchanted with later Masters repressive regime & Masters’ discriminations towards non-clones & other Sentinels races. Mended ties with Zor & Vard, he later joined them by refusing the life extension treatment session on Tyrol in the quiet rebellion against Masters. Unlike Vard, Cabell was not a close confidant of Zor & thus not privy to Zor’s plans. Upon Zor’s death however, Cabell avoided all contacts by self imposed exile to Tiresia. Unbeknownst to Masters, Cabell had been closing into Zor’s long-held secrets after centuries of research, based on Zor’s lecture notes centuries ago. He reared a Zor-Clone, Rem Derelda (from surviving oldest Zor’s DNA organic sample taken centuries earlier as a token, a hair strand to be exact) from childhood, to redress his previous estrangement with the original Zor over the centuries due to ideological differences.

The only surviving, perhaps the oldest living native Tyrolian from Stellar Age, now Pro-Consul Cabell is also the surviving original Robotech Masters, the last of the rare breed. He survived the Invid Occupation of Tyrol, living on the run while continued his protoculture research, finally instrumental in replicating the new protoculture matrix, a technology long lost with the death of original Zor. Pro-Consul Cabell alongside his colleague Rem Derelda (the newly appointed Robotech Master by New Tyrolian Republic) finally able to unlock the secrets to make mutant sterile Flower of Life to be able to produce fertile seeds by introducing genetically modified cha-chas (a Tyrolian domesticated trahls) to become the pollinators for the mutant FoL varieties, immediately introduced what were later known as 2nd generation protoculture strain that revolutionized entire UEEF & Sentinel Confederation in mid 2030s.

The final Disciples of Zor stronghold is annihilated by the Zentraedi Borderers Taskforce & 101st Assault Combine Fleet of Zentraedi Regular Armies. Remaining rebel fleet limps away into the darkness, led by surviving Disciples of Zor. Protoculture supplies are dangerously low & Imperial renaissance nearly founders because of the imminent power crisis. (545000 I.C.)

1947 C.E (Renaissance Age)
Adoclass Imperial Fleet under Dolza’s personal command locates Invid hideout in Large Magellanic Cloud, initiating the largest military expedition against the Invid entrenched on their adopted homeworld. 8 million Zentraedi locked in brutal mortal combat with 20 million Invid in Tawkhan campaign, which nearly become a stalemate, but a surgical strike led by joint Quadrono unit under Zentraedi ace, Miriya Paarino & commando raid by Breetai Kridanik against central Invid Hive marked the Zentraedi Regular Armies success against their ancient foes.

1950 – 1998 C.E (Renaissance Age)

A peace agreement is reached between SDF-1 Macross & Breetai Kridanik's 1 million strong ships of Adoclass Imperial Fleet. Dolza's Grand Fleet (Gorg BoDolza) arrives in the solar system, leaving the entire Imperium virtually undefended. Dolza's fleet is annihilated.

Oct, 2014 C.E
Robotech Masters & Imperial Armada depart Tyrol for Earth. Border Fleet units are recalled to defend the Imperium core systems from possible Invid incursions.

2014 - 2015 C.E
Protoculture crises hits the entire Imperium, anarchy & violent riots erupted in every major Imperium worlds. Tyrolian Border Fleet units forced to depart from their nearly powerless ships & establish permanent terrestrial bases under orders from Triumvirate planetary Governors.

2015 – 2022 C.E

Invid formally declares Crusade against Robotech Imperium, swiftly reoccupying Optera. Invid forces launch all out assault against well entrench Tyrolian & Zentraedi Borderers they encounters on every Imperium coreworlds & colonies.

Imperium coreworlds & outlying colonies sever commo links for fear of Invid reprisals. Invid crusade intensifies, cutting large swath of destruction through out the Imperium & Invid initiate large scale massacre against any surviving Triumvirate colonists.

Atleast two minor outlying Imperium colonies escaped Invid detection, the desperate 8 million Triumvirate colonists & 125,000 Border Fleet personnels relocate to an abandon Disciples of Zor’s military base deep in an asteroid star system (known as Pirate’s Cluster) outside Imperium borders now controlled by the Invid.

2022 C.E
The overly spent Invid horde finally invades Tyrol, conquering it swiftly. Only 280 million Tyrolian natives survived the initial invasion. Planetary wide massacre by Invid Regent forces stopped cold as internal rift between Invid Supreme Monarchs deepens. Invid Scientist Tesla appointed to become Invid Occupation Governor on Invid-occupied Tyrol.

Regent, deprived of 2/3rds of Invid piloted mechanized forces loyal to Regess, embarks on Inorganic terror units development to supplement his depleted manpower following the losses suffered during Invid crusades against Robotech Empire.

Eventual separation of the two halves of entire Invid forces, those loyal to Regess (Invid Scientific community, 2/3rd of Invid piloted mechanized forces & entire Invid Royalists castes) & those loyal to Regent (Invid Fleet Commanders & entire fledgling Invid Armada, independent Invid Brains & their Inorganic garrisons, third tier Invid Scientists & independent Invid Field Commanders alongside their mechanized forces).

Triumvirate colonists & their Borderers hiding out at Pirate’s Cluster take to space pirating in order to survive, striking against Invid protoculture supply runs. These space pirates also raiding abandoned Zentraedi bases in outlying sectors for supplies.

SDF-3 launches with her complement of 6 Valivarre-class escort vessels (mimicking Tyrolian Border Forces’s Task Force) from Earth & join the Expeditionary fleet already engaged in the search of Tyrol, marking the beginning of Pioneer Mission.

Space pirates begin forcibly conscripted Zentraedi stragglers & Zentraedi rogues - who escaped from Dolza’s fleet destruction on Sol System - whom they encountered during long-forays raids. These space pirates learn of Humanity existence & begin daringly conducting raids to Terran off-world colonies, even reaching Sol-system on several raiding occasions.

EF established anti-piracy taskforce with infamous EF Special Forces unit, Wolfe Pack & UES Valivarre commanded by Captain Kazianna Hesh to deal with space pirate’s threats.

Pioneer Mission searches the Galaxy for the Robotech Masters' empire. En route they encounter a number of adversaries, all humanoid / Tyroloid in origin, such as micronized Zentraedi, pirates, & report these encounters back to the United Earth Government via Space Station Liberty, explaining why in the early part of the 2nd Robotech War, the United Earth Defence Forces alternately mistakes the Masters for all of the above.

Expeditionary Fleet discovers more abandoned Robotech automated factories & Robotech Repair Satellites, alongside Imperium fringe colonies which yields only Imperium ruins. Efforts are made to colonise these worlds & turning abandoned automated factories into EF colonies & logistical bases. Still more children born in this period on the EF fleet, number of Terran & micronised Zentraedi colonists slowly growing on EF colony-worlds & deep space installations.

Furnished with Tyrol coordinates, the combined Pioneer Mission & Borderer fleet folds there, immediately engaged in hostile contact with unidentified hostile aliens there.

Message arrives on Tyrol requesting help from the EF to fight the Masters. The Plenipotentiary Council orders a relief expedition to be sent as soon as possible.

Additional EF fleet reinforcement arrived in Valivarre system & begins to liberate Tyrol from the Invid. EF receives Liberty's distress call, but is unable to return because of its heavy naval commitment at Tyrol. EF achieves space supremacy, freeing up ships to send back to Earth. Two waves of vessels including Transport 85 Squadron & the infamous Wolff Pack are sent.

United Earth Forces embattled fleet links up with vessels from EF reinforcement for the final two naval battles for Earth. 2nd Robotech War ends as Imperial Armada soundly defeated in phyrric victory by UEF. Invid Sensor Nebula in Sol-System detected protoculture emission from Earth & FoL spores which are spreading across Earth surface.

The 21st Mars Division arrives at Earth as part of the Second Earth Reclamation Force. The fleet is intercepted before its troops can begin their atmospheric insertion, and is quickly destroyed by the Invid.

The newly refit UES Tokugawa under Captain Grant is ordered to track wayward Edward. The hunt for the UEEF traitor begins.

The heavily damaged Tyrolian Orbital Yard is declared unsalvageable, thus production of new UEEF starships will only resumed after reactivation & refurbishment of new naval production center aboard Robotech Factory Satellite, which will take considerable precious resources.

Sentinels faction pledges to help rebuild UEEF fleet in order for the Final Earth Reclaimation Mission. Haydonite provide assistance in installing Shadow Technology to EF mechas & warships.

Now I wanna crawled under my bed, after countless available free hours spent on poring every nook of McKinney's novelizations, RT Art III, RT RPG, & even the OSM materials buried on my harddisc for the freaking research of the Masters history. Re-editing ..... DARN IT, I hate that word! Oooh, my lost precious time! :? :?

I can just see some geneticists trying to extrapolate from comparisons of Terran and Torolian DNA what was the common ancestor and closest related groups on Earth...


A holdover from uRRG's original, unedited essay.

The matter has been debated to death in RT.com Hardcore forum years back, from logical extrapolation, humans & Tyrolians (to a certain extent, Praxians) shared a common biological lineage. I just choose the Homo sapiens part, when prehistoric humanity is just crawling as cave dwellers & ofcourse, let Haydon herded the primitives as slave laborers to Tyrol & Praxis.

I'm being vague on Haydon part, because well, Haydon is sorta like the original 'Protoculture' in SDF:M, however, unlike SDF:M's Protoculture engineered native life on Earth (& Zola) to create sub species of Protocultures; Haydon engineered native species or tinkered with ecological balance on various worlds in 4th Quadrant, on their visit to Earth, the primitive humans are carted off for further experimentation on foreign worlds.

Good god almighty...aside from fractured syntax(which can be excused by sleep deprivation incurred while typing this all up), this is the most definitive fanwork on the Robotech Masters and their history I have ever seen... :shock: :ok:

I've noticed that you retain my idea the Kabarran didn't have fold drive until they met the Tirolian... Or was it just a coincidence?

Also, When will you start working on the New Generation Arc?

Actually, that idea came from uRRG's Dr Peter Walker & Aubry Thonon. As I reiterated before, the Tyrolian History & Description essay (but RT Masters, Triumvirate & Triumviroid essay is my brainchild) is the original work of those guys, I only reedited & re-expanded the original essay, where the quoted addendum are my additions to the original work.

After I finished the Sentinel related essays .... which could be months from now. But I try my best to speed things up!

=WAR AGAINST TERRORISM

The first real blow to unification campaign occurs in September 2001 CE. Al-Qaeda, an international terrorist group hijacks several passenger planes & launches suicide missions by strategically crashing the planes into World Trade Center in New York & US military nerve center in Pentagon, marking the second successful surgical strike on US soil by foreign aggressor following Pearl Harbor incident in World War II. The American answer is swift, effectively declaring a state of war against global terrorism. Coalition forces, swiftly overrun Afghanistan that long a hotbed for terrorist training centers. Unfortunately, US conveniently ignore the Middle East crisis that undermines the unification process, & situation is fast becoming toxic between Palestinians & Israelis.



There's a small mistake here... the world trade center is still showing in the Robotech Episode 82 "the big Apple"... Wich mean that most of New York survived the Zentraedi rain of Death.

Now my next question is How? could it be possible that New York managed to build a full city wide barrier before the Zentraedi attack?

Another mystery of Robotech.

That would be the simplest way to explain it however, given the time and resources to build the WTC, this seem unlikely. Just look at it today: work on the new Trade Center started in 2006 and won't be expected to fininsh until 2013...

In Robotech, add the Reconstruction of the SDF-1 then, the First Robotech War... Somehow, I don't think the resources will be there to rebuild the World Trade Center if it was destroyed.

Just my 2 cents

Perhaps the towers seen were actually little more than fascades....monument towers made of the new megadamage materials but lacking in interior office and residency floors(maybe an observation platform or two), but their real purpose, aside from being monuments, is as radio transmission antennae(and part of the UEG civil preparedness network)...by the time of the Invid Invasion, however, they've become little more than glorified pigeon roosts...

The real question is why we are trying force history, especially post 1999, into the Robotech timeline? An alien spacecraft crashing to Earth would change the priorities of many, many things. In fact, I’d suggest forcing much past the 1980s into the RT timeline is somewhat suspicious. A major global war would most certainly alter the timeline from our contemporary one.

Well, look at it this way, these essays supposed to be fanfics, hardly official in any way, only to enrich the RPG rolegaming play. Heck, even the infamous Unofficial Robotech Reference Guide, formerly of Robotech Technical Files was developed in mid 1990s as an RT RPG supplement by Peter Walker, Pieter Thomassen & Rob Morgenstern!

Much of my addition of real-world events pre 1999 & parallelling the current War of Terrorism to RT-verse complementary to Global Civil War & Anti-Unification crises merely just to enrich gamers already familiar of current world events to be able to adapt to similar situation in RT-verse (specially after HG retconning pre-1999 events to mimic that of real world, in official & canonised RT WS comics).

Ok, but that didn't really answer the question and I doubt the uRRG was meant to be a RPG supplement.

Actually, to me, they smack of laziness and unoriginality. Prior to the 1999 crash of the SDF1, the Robotech timeline had drifted significantly apart from our own to have a global war going on. This alone would disrupt the causes for other events that occured in our own timeline.

HG new stance is that the so-called Global Civil War is now a smaller series of conflicts erupted all over the world, kinda very close of real world events in 1990s. In fact, events depicted in WS RT comics strays quite a bit from previous Global Civil War interpretation in various RT resources.

Kinda surprise eh regarding uRRG true origin? Back in mid 1990s, when the prototype of Robotech Technical Files is merely a collection of made up mecha & naval vessels stats for RT RPG, by both Pieter Thomassen & Peter Walker. It grew outta proportion as both guys consulted heavily on OSM, then they decided to come up with Robotech Technical Files in 1995 / 1996, that evolved to unOfficial Robotech Reference Guide back in 2000 / 2001.

The event pre 1999 & post SDF-1 crashed are not fairly documented in RT-verse, & old versions such as the original Robotech Graphic Novel published by Comico had become non-canon. As such, I myself do not have ample material to work with in constructing Global Civil War era, so I rely on real world events with made up conflicts to explain the Earth history from 1980s - early 2009 period. BTW, I lived in Malaysia, where we don't even have many Robotech sources to begin with, & heck, my 1st language isn't even English. So I worked within my limitations.

I don't intend to be original. Laziness, hardly. If I was really that lazy, I won't bother posting lengthy essays regarding RT-verse. I've real working life, part time studies & yet I able to find precious time to produce the fanfics, to share 'em with RT fans. In certain cases where I adapted someone else works, I acknowledged them as the true authors, not taking the credit for myself alone.

Fanworks are meant to be shared with fans, right?

:wink: :wink:

BTW Cav, thanks for the constructive criticism.

This seems to be the new throw-away excuses for anything someone questions. “Hey look, it’s HG’s fault!” Heck, even Palladium has taken up the mantra with that “letter to the fans” that KS put out.

Nothing in our 1990s comes close to the described global war of Robotech. Such a global war followed by the crash landing of an alien vessel would dramatically alter the timeline. Anyone thinking that after a global war and an alien space craft crashing to Earth that the timeline would move on pretty much the same as ours has is being incredibly short-sighted.

Like I said, the uRRG isn’t and wasn’t aimed to be a RPG resource. The complete and utter lack of RPG stats should be the first and most important clue to everyone.

Why not think outside the box instead of just clipping in real world events? Seems that with a lack of “documented” RT history, you’d have been free to be creative.

When you look at the various devlopment histories of the aircraft and other vehicles, you see hints that the conflict was shaping up before the 1990s...what with the Dragon II being the result of Swedish/American cooperation(these programs don't happen overnight)...


As far as the rest of it?
It's fanfiction...People can think what they want...you can believe in the slow build-up or the sudden flare-up...real history is full of examples of both types of changes altering the course of world events...

I personally believe the Bavarian Illuminati are behind the whole thing... :D

Call it excuses if you want, but hey, that's how I interpreted HG retconning events eversince the new canonical comics (Wildstorm) were published. I could've followed either the McKinney variant of Global Civil War or the Comico comic version, but given both sources were relegated to secondary status, I kinda hesitated for a bit (maybe because of that RT purist streak in me). So I went the Universalist route, drawing from both canonical & non-canonical sources, & realigning with real world events. Besides, my essays are fanfics in nature, never meant to be official in any way, hardly ever canon in RT-verse.

Anyone thinking that after a global war and an alien space craft crashing to Earth that the timeline would move on pretty much the same as ours has is being incredibly short-sighted.


Well, as I said, I worked within my limitations. The Genesis series were generally my first attempt to write the fanfic in form of historical essays as I am inspired from uRRG works, & at first meant to be for my personal collection. Then I decided to share 'em with fans after reading Jeffar's EBSIS essays & Col Taffy's essays on this very forum back in 2006.

Genesis Global Civil War is my first essay, so I do expect flaws practically evident. Of course, having you to actually questioned & even criticised my fanfic is somewhat an honour, I welcomed 'em!

Quote:
Like I said, the uRRG isn’t and wasn’t aimed to be a RPG resource. The complete and utter lack of RPG stats should be the first and most important clue to everyone.


That because when it become Robotech Technical Guide & evolved to UnOfficial Robotech Reference Guide. During its early prototype or early incarnation, Peter Walker & Pieter Thomassen in their early biographies (in 1997 if I'm not mistaken) mentioned the early incarnation of Robotech Technical Files as a collection of made up naval & mecha stats for RPG purposes.

Here is from the updated biography (if you called updated since 2001 :wink: ) of Pieter Thomassen:

Quote:
In 1993, the first chapter of Roll Call saw its first Internet posting, accompanied by the earliest versions of the Alpha and Cyclone entries, which were based upon the RPG and statistics given on the Gakken toys. Frequent discussion with Peter Walker about some oddities in his statistics and badgering him for more caused the latter to suggest that Pieter write the entries of the mecha appearing in the books himself, and the result was a technical description of virtually every mecha and vessel in the Robotech Universe, recently weighing in at about 750K and 15,000 lines. - uRRG Author section


and lastly ...

Quote:
Why not think outside the box instead of just clipping in real world events? Seems that with a lack of “documented” RT history, you’d have been free to be creative.


As I said, Genesis Global Civil War is my first attempt to create a fanfic. The article itself was created back in 2004, where it sat on languished on my harddisc & finally re-edited once again when I decided to share it here with the RT RPG fans in 2006.

I do not attempt to be creative with Global Civil War exploits. The recent retcon by RT WS comics regarding 1990s era in RT verse hinted very much follows somewhat similar situation of real-world events in 1990s. Post SDF-1 crashed with Anti Unification League / factions versus UEG sounds much like how real life Al-Qaeda & rogue nations resisted the idea of globalisation.

I simply can't resist the similarities at the time of the writing of that essay, 4 years ago.

This continued finger pointing at HG for lack of their own imagination is tiring. It’s infected Palladium and now some fans…

Many paths to the truth....it only enriches the worldlines....(Yeah, I've been reading too much of Heinlein's "Number of the Beast")...

Sorry for bumping the thread. Just a head up for you guys, I'm still alive :bandit: :bandit:

Well, for the past year, I get myself a new job, rollin' & thunderin' on with the hectic pace relocating from Borneo to Malaysian Peninsular, gettin' on with life.

However, despite my busy schedule, I managed to complete the long awaited Sentinel series, currently in re-editing process. However, expect next week for the earliest submissions of fan-essays coming your way.

BTW, for newcomers, my works is only to enriched your RT-gaming, thus non-official or canon within RT-verse.

It is just to provide in depth study & familiarisation to RT-RPG gamers with the intricate details of Robotech that often missed out due to plotholes of the amalgamation of 3 anime series into a scifi saga.

See you next week, & newcomers, hardtuned your brain to soak up all the information!

Dear Esteemed Readers,

We're deeply sorry for the continued delays of our publications on Robotecha Encyclopaedia as recent crises continued to affect the known quadrant.

Following the worsening protoculture energy crises, and forced relocation of civilians stationed onboard various Robotech Factory Satellites and bases, RFS Digest's top management has decided to relocate our HQ to Earth, specifically at Neo Tokyo region. Surprisingly, Neo Tokyo was spared destructive TWO destructive Robotech wars due to its Megazone III underground city complex.

Special thanks to our gracious host, the new Prime Minister of United Earth (Reconciliation) Government, His Excellency Dr Daryl Embrey for allowing us to occupy the hastily refurbished former UEG Ministry of Computer Sciences located at Neo Tokyo suburb.

At the moment we're still busy relocating our servers from Moon Base Luna and updating tons of backlog materials waiting to be published.

Thank you for your continuing support to RFS Digest! Our newest edition are expected to be available to all newsstand all over 4th Quadrant & Sol-System, & downloadable online version on Ultra-Net as soon as we can make them available in a couple of weeks time.

Besides, it is great to be back on good ole Earth.

Sincerely,

Editorial Team - RFS Digest.

OK, not really an update .... but have been dusting the ole files in my harddisc, currently re-editing of all previous essays. For the past 4-5 years I've been outta loop with RT fandom, but with the recent RT Love Live Alive, kinda make me gravitated back to RT-verse.

A lot has happen in my life, currently finishing my part-time degree, being married (yeah, I know), transferring to other department ... and re-connecting with my other passions (Macross-verse to be exact ... and then there's Neon Genesis Evangelion redux, ooooh, the Yamato 2199 and Gundam-verse).

Its good to be back at the very thread I started 8 years ago. Hopefully this time I'm back for good!
