"Reckless" is the twenty-third episode of Robotech: The Macross Saga.
During Khyron's assault on the SDF-1, his troops begin deserting; ultimately, Rico, Bron, and Konda approach the SDF-1's command and are granted asylum. When Breetai and Exedore learn of desertion among Khyron's forces, they suspect a secret weapon is being employed against them.
The crew of the battlefortress has responded to the Zentraedi’s latest attack with a great show of force, but the fighting works its way inside to the streets of Macross City. Khyron’s troops overrun the civil defense patrol’s resistance. The warlord is positive that this time, victory will be his. However, his gloating is interrupted when he notices odd behavior among some of is men. When he questions them, they explain that they’re looking for Minmei. Khyron forbids them to pursue their quest. They ignore his orders and run away.
At Zentraedi command Headquarters, Breetai and Exedore receive news that Khyron’s troops are deserting. Exedore tells Breetai that this must be secret weapon that the Zentraedi legends warned of.
The officers of the SDF-1 are as stunned as the Zentraedi when confronted with the alien deserters. They hardly know what to make of the situation, but a subsequent examination shows that the Zentraedi blood types and genetic structures are identical to those of humans. The aliens aren’t as alien as they appear to be. Gloval decides to grant them political asylum.
Rick is abandoning attempts to have a romantic relationship with Minmei, after seeing her and Kyle kissing in the amphitheater.
With the information from the laboratory test, Lisa plans bring her recommendation to negotiate with the Zentradi Armada to the United Earth Government. Although Gloval mentions the risk of doing so, he permits Lisa to take a transport to Earth to present her case.
