The Genesis Pit on Optera (Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles)

The Genesis Pit are scientific laboratories created by the Invid which are used for the study in biogenetic engineering and studies in evolution.

After the conquest of Earth, the Regess conducted a crucial experiment in the evolution of her race by constructing a Genesis Pit where numerous specialized long dead life forms were resurrected in an artificial environment in order to be studied. This was part of her attempt at determining the ideal ultimate form her race should evolve to so that they could survive on this planet. This knowledge was also deemed to had allowed her to transform the Invid into the ultimate power that they were destined to be. Her Genesis Pit was eventually discovered by Scott Bernard and his band of resistance fighters leading to the destruction of the site which saw all the dinosaurs as well as other prehistoric beings die in the cataclysm.
