The Bioroid Harvest was a rarely seen Bioroid variant of the Robotech Masters Remnant forces, and it was originally conceived for in Robotech: Fall of the Southern Cross. Its primary function was to harvest tainted the Invid Flower of Life following the Second Robotech War.
Technology and Combat CharacteristicsEdit
The Bioroid Harvester was originally an unused design left by the main Scientist Triumvirate, as a means to harvest the Invid Flower of Life and a last resort to develop tainted Protoculture. This harvesting process was initially thought to be impossible, was developed shortly after the Second Robotech War by the Robotech Masters Remnant.
The Bioroid was controlled by a mechanism unique to all Robotech mecha. While Battloids and Battle Pods use input from control sticks and pedals to translate pilot's intent to the mecha, and whereas Power Armors amplify limb movements to the mecha's own limbs, the Bioroid was completely mentally controlled. A series of biological "diodes" implanted into the pilot rerouted brain signals from the pilot's motor nervous system to the Bioroid's, making the Bioroid an extention of the pilot's own body. Because of this, and because of the unique servo system, the Bioroid was extremely difficult to disable without killing or incapacitating the pilot. A side effect of the control system is that when the pilot was improperly removed from the mecha, his/her nervous system could be damaged, and may become completely unresponsive.
