"The Trap" is the 44nd episode of Robotech and eighth episode of the Masters Saga.


The 15th explores the downed Robotech ship, and discover a mysterious alien.


Dana Sterling leads the 15th Alpha Tactical Armored Corps into the alien ship. Helmet monitors transmit their findings to Central Command. However, as they scout the ship's interior, the Robotech Masters are making their own observations in return.

The team discovers a bio-mechanical operation that indicates the aliens are able to create perfect androids. Separated from the group, Bowie meets a beautiful alien woman, Musica, the mistress of the Cosmic Harp. Musica manipulates the electronic beams of the fantastic instrument. However, the two are attracted to each other by more than their love of music. Bowie is enchanted, but Musica finds her own reactions too disturbing; they go against all her conditioning. After she helps Bowie to defeat attacking sentries, she runs away.

Meanwhile, the Robotech Masters trap Dana and her crew. Sterling blasts her way out through the floor. Guessing their welcome is over, the squad heads for an exit -- any exit! On their way out, Sterling captures an enemy bioroid.
