The Robotech Companion was created as the ideal web site for most Robotech fans' needs for information and files of the Robotech universe with a straight view to the TV series. There has always been multiple web sites out there, but many of them contain far too much incorrect data and errors, as well as just plain nothing. My view of the Robotech universe begins with the TV Series and the strong interest of what it tells us, NOT the following of the novels or sources that rewrite the TV series and its data. The Companion brings all the info of the web as well as new information, facts, and files to the Robotech fandom in one spot. However, unlike the other sites, we present correct facts and information along with sources, proof, and hard research. Our web site wishes to be the one stop source for all fans' information with the feeling of knowing they are reading correct facts and can ask questions. The Companion sees the original Robotech TV series, the 85 episodes, as the primary and correct source of Robotech and everything will be based on that. It will not use the other sources, but followers of these should have no problem using my web site for their needs of general facts about Robotech and research into the TV Series. The series came first, all other sources came after.
My web site was originally created back in 1999 as the Robotech Information Center throughout 2002. The original idea was to create a web site with the latest Robotech news to be found which The Robotech Companion will forever continue to do. In 2002, Robotech Information Center got itself a new layout and better format along with the label as stage 1 of my ultimate ideas for Robotech which transformed into the Robotech Companion as you somewhat see it now in stage 2. Stage 3 will contain parts where stage 2 left off and more in-depth into the Robotech TV series in different ways. However, the point is always for correct data, info, and facts and not errors.
I hope you, the web viewer, will come back with us to the origins of Robotech and put your beliefs into the original Robotech continuity created and form in 1984 and 1985 by Harmony Gold's production through the 85 episodes of Robotech. In my opinion, that is the true and authentic Robotech universe. Everything that conflicts it or tries to rewrite it, is not.
