"The Long Wait"
"Transformation" is the fifth episode of Robotech: The Macross Saga.
The citizens of Macross Island try to adjust to their new life inside the alien vessel and Rick Hunter weighs up joining the Robotech Defense Force. The SDF-1 is faced with a long, dangerous journey home after it is discovered that the spacefold drive has disappeared. To make up for the missing components the crew stumble onto the idea of transforming the ship, which is soon put into use when the Zentraedi attack.
SynopsisTo raise morale, Lynn Minmei persuades her aunt and uncle to open their Chinese restaurant up in space.
Because the conduit connected the main gun to the main furnace was lost when the fold system disappeared. Dr. Emil Lang proposes a radical idea: transform the SDF-1 so it can use its main gun against the Zentraedi. Captain Gloval hesitates because the civilians have finally started to settle down.
In the light of the advancement by the Zentraedi, Gloval and the crew decide to transform the SDF-1 into a humanoid configuration. Many of the citizens aboard are injured in the transformation, and Rick is tasked to save Minmei yet again. After the short skirmish, Rick decides to join the military.
