"The power of the Allose is not in its weapons." — Ishtar

"Luck is one of my skills." — Ismau

"I am Colonel B.D. Andrews speaking for the supreme military command of the United Earth Government. The time has come to refute a preposterous rumor that is spreading throughout the population. Recent military maneuvers in the northern province have been misinterpreted by irresponsible people as evidence that we have been attacked or invaded by an enemy power. If you hear these rumors, ignore them. We have not been invaded, nor are we at war!"

           Carl Macek created protoculture as a MacGuffin to unite the storylines of the three separate anime that composed Robotech
