The Robotech Refinery Satellite was a space station of Tirolian design that made use of Robotechnology. It was designed by the Robotech Masters for their Zentraedi miners when the clone race was created to mine the surface of the inhospitable surface of Fantoma. The Zentraedi would mine the monopole ore from Fantoma which would be processed in the orbital station.
This satellite was later commandeered by the Robotech Expeditionary Force when they arrived at Tirol and began a war against the forces of the Invid Regent. To develop their new space fleet, they had Breetai's Zentraedi warrior mine the monopole ore for processing at the satellite. When General T. R. Edwards began to plot against Rick Hunter, he attempted to force Breetai to provide him the monopole ore.
However, the Zentraedi commander increased the gravity in the station to subdue the Human forces and their mecha without killing them. Afterwards, he departed the system with his forces and the monopole ore whilst they sought out the Sentinels in order to get their help in combating Edwards powerbase in the Expeditionary Force .
