Robotech is the American adaptation of three Japanese animated series: The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, The Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA, as a single TV series. The series is divided into three parts which are subtitled The Macross Saga, The Masters, and The New Generation. A fourth part was planned in a sequel series but was cancelled, with only a few episodes being produced which were later combined into a movie The Sentinels. In 2006, a new feature film was released called The Shadow Chronicles as well as a prelude comic Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles. The story mainly follows members of the Robotech Armed Forces, a fictional military force depicted in the series. After the events of the Macross saga, the Robotech Expeditionary Force is formed which leaves Earth to hunt for the Robotech Masters. In the later part of the series they are involved in battles against the Invid. In the fictional world of Robotech, the characters are also involved in four Robotech Wars. They begin with the first battle between the SDF-1 and Zentradi (First Robotech War) and continue after the Robotech Masters try to Invade Earth (Second Robotech War). The third Robotech War is fought against the Invid, and the Fourth and final war is fought against another alien race known as the Haydonites.

This era concerns the first two chapters of Robotech, adapted from the first Macross TV series, and related stories, otherwise known as The First Generation.

Richard "Rick" Hunter is a character in the Robotech television series. At the start of the Macross Saga, his role is that of an amateur stunt pilot — throughout his numerous appearances and mentions in primary sources, he quietly evolves into an Admiral of Earth's last fleet, as he attempts to lead the liberation of Earth from numerous alien threats. In the Macross Saga, Rick Hunter's original appearance and an adaptation of The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Rick is based on Hikaru Ichijyo. He is voiced by Tony Oliver.

Rick Hunter first appears in Robotech: The Macross Saga. The first episode begins with Rick Hunter arriving as a visitor to Macross Island to watch the launching of the Super Dimensional Fortress One and to visit his "big brother", Roy Fokker. When the Zentraedi forces attack, the SDF-1 takes the island and its inhabitants of Macross City including Rick to the orbit of Pluto on the edge of the solar system. During this encounter, Rick rescues and falls for a young girl named and the two become close. Although he is not initially open to the idea, he signs up with the Robotech Armed Forces becoming an ace fighter pilot. During his time on the SDF-1, Rick has many dealings with Lisa Hayes and the two do not get along. Rick increasingly looks toward Minmei, who has now become a popular singer and pageant winner, as a source of inspiration and happiness. After a mission to rescue Lisa, Rick is promoted and given command of his own squadron and two subordinate (Max Sterling and Ben Dixon). While on a reconnaissance mission Rick is captured along with Lisa, and Ben by the enemy Zentraedi, and interrogated by Supreme Commander Dolza, Breetai, and Exedore. While captured, Dolza grabs Lisa and orders to tell him by what process humans become human-size. Lisa refuses to respond, and Dolza tightens his grip around her. Rick yells at him to stop squeezing her and explains that humans are born at their current size when a man and woman love each other. When Breetai asks how "this love" is expressed, Rick responds that it is often done by kissing one another. Dolza orders a demonstration, and Lisa tells Rick to kiss her. The action shocks Dolza and the other Zentraedi present. They are eventually rescued shortly afterwards, and after reaching Earth during a battle Roy Fokker is killed resulting in Rick obtaining Roy's fighter spacecraft. Shortly thereafter, his second wingman Ben Dixon is killed in the line of duty which devastates Rick even more.
