Episode Guide
A New Recruit
"Deja Vu" is the 48th episode of Robotech (TV series) and 12th episode of Robotech: The Masters.


The interrogation of Zor Prime begins.


Lieutenant Nova Satori of the Global Military Police beings a complex psychological profile on the alien pilot identified only as "Zor". Zor suffers from amnesia and is haunted by agonizing nightmares. The clone doesn't know his dreams are based on memories he shares with his cell donor. Zor's interrogators do not suspect their prisoner is anything other than human. They believe they have captured a brainwashed civilian who has been forced to serve the Robotech Masters.

Sean Phillips, the Casanova of the 15th Squad, visits Marie Crystal, who is recuperating from wounds suffered in battle. Lieutenant Crystal attempts a little reverse psychology to ensure the private's attention and wonders later if she's overplayed her hand.

Remastered Additions/Changes

Dana Sterling Nurse Collage

Scenes of Dana's undies that were removed in the original Robotech broadcast.

For the cut of Robotech Remastered, various shots were added in from the original Japanese version which were originally cut. These include a more gratuitous shot of Dana in the shower and a shot of her panties as she climbs the wall of the Hospital. Like many Masters Saga episodes, the title is left out by accident.
