Well, speaking as a *gasp!* Robotech fan (Yes, we do still exist.) If
the writers do a good job, it could potentially be Very good. But what
would they do? I for one wouldn't mind seeing it be Robotech: The
Sentinels, even though that story has been told in the novels. But the
thing is that if it's going to be good, they will have to remember that
it was the story that made Robotech good (For it's time.)
