Codename: Robotech was a 73 minute feature film given to TV stations that agreed to air Robotech on a weekly basis. This film was aired on TV once around the country before the Robotech TV series began. It was meant to introduce an audience to the complex world of Robotech before watching the episodes.
Codename: Robotech was basically an extended episode 14, "Gloval's Report", by retelling the first 12 episodes of Robotech in a reminisce form. However, it was done in a way to showcase different characters, mecha, story elements, and more, giving the newcomer an idea of what Robotech was all about and an insight to Gloval's personality.
