Leonard orders all remaining squadrons to assemble at Monument City and prepare for an attack. Emerson returns the battered remains of the Southern Cross Defense Force to protect the planet and its people as his ship explodes. Marie Crystal manages to get the general into an escape pod, but they are picked up by the Robotech Masters before they can reach their own troops.
The aliens contact Zor Prime for a trade – Zor, Musica, and the dismissal of remaining Earth forces for the general and his crew. Zor accepts.
