Ghost Town is the 78th episode of Robotech, part of the Robotech: The New Generation saga.


The freedom fighters come across a band of veterans from the war against the Robotech Masters, only to discover they are too old to continue the fight. Or are they?


The search for Reflex Point brings the rebels to another vast desert. They find a bandit outpost inhabited by elderly veterans of the war against the Robotech Masters. The old men have been living off their ancient mecha. For one of them, however, the most valued possession they have is a transceiver. Scott is elated until he is told the machine does not transmit messages, though they are still able to hear orders directly form the fleet for the first time since Scott's original force was destroyed.

As it turns out, Admiral Hunter is planning a major offensive, and orders come through to destroy any and all Invid hives, confirming Scott's working objectives. As they head forth to carry out the task of destroying an Invid tower, the oldtimers are inspired by their enthusiasm, and are able to gain lift-off with their downed spacecraft, long enough to bring it to bear against the Invid hive. Their act of ultimate sacrifice is to ram the aging space cruiser into the hive, blowing it and themselves up, completing the mission.
