"The Big Escape" is the twelfth episode of Robotech: The Macross Saga.


Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Max Sterling and Ben Dixon fight their way off the Zentraedi ship and escape back to the SDF-1. As a result Breetai is replaced by a new commander, Azonia. Three Zentraedi, Rico, Konda, and Bron volunteer to be micronized and infiltrated into the SDF-1 to learn more about the humans.


Eager to learn about Micronian culture, Rico, Bron, and Konda volunteer to be micronized and infiltrate the SDF-1 in order to report their findings to Breetai and Dolza.

Meanwhile, Max Sterling takes on the uniform of a Zentraedi warrior while in his Veritech fighter (in Battloid mode), and stumbles across Rick and Lisa. During their escape, they come upon a facility within the ship in which Zentraedi are seemingly incubating in huge vats, perhaps explaining their size. Lisa takes a photo, but loses the camera during the escape to the SDF-1.

Humiliated by the escape of the prisoners, Breetai is relieved of active command by Dolza. Azonia, a female Zentraedi warlord, replaces him.
