The Genesis Pit is the 69th episode of the Robotech tv series, part of Robotech: The New Generation saga.


Scott, Rand, and Annie stumble into an experiment the Invid are carrying out to determine a new course for their biological evolution.


Human intruders -- Scott, Rand, and Annie - stumble into a deep pit as they scout for a safe camp. When they regain consciousness, they can't believe their eyes. They are trapped within a dense jungle, surrounded by creatures that have been extinct for years. As they look for a way out, Rand and Scott see animals from different periods of Earth's history and, surprisingly, Invid; the Invid are not attacking, but disappear as soon as they are spotted. Rand stumbles upon the truth, convinced that this is a test base for the Invid to play at the evolution of biology.

Observing this revelation from the Hive, the Regess possesses and speaks through Annie, threatening Rand and Scott, explaining that humans are at an end!

When Annie comes back to herself, they try again to find a way out of the pit. The animals begin to behave strangely, stampeding toward a single area. Following a hunch, they chase after the herd.

The cause of the panic is an earthquake, and the trio manages to climb to safety as the Genesis Pit collapses around them. They are the only ones to escape.
