  • Episode Description
  • The Royal family from Planet Pollux has made a visit to Planet Doom. Lotor seems to have a particular thing against the planet's prince, Avok. So Avok is sent to the arena where he successfully beats a hideous beast. Infuriated, Lotor challenges the man himself and they get into a heated sword fight. But then Lotor spies Avok's sister Romelle and younger brother Bandor standing on the sidelines. Romelle bears a striking resemblance to Allura. While Lotor is busy gawking at her, Avok disarms him. Lotor concedes defeat and praises Avok's skills. Lotor then forms an alliance with the people of Pollux against Arus. The animosity the ruling family of Pollux has for Arus runs very deep. So deep in fact that Avok agrees to be transformed into a Robeast and assist Lotor in an attack on Arus. Once the Voltron Force learns of this, they head to Pollux hoping to peacefully resolve their differences and avoid war.moreless

    • The episode of King of Beasts GoLion used to create this episode of Voltron is titled "Challenge from Space". In that episode Prince Samson (Avok in Voltron.) is transformed into a Deathblack Beastman (Robeast in Voltron.) and fights GoLion (Voltron) but soon refuses to go on fighting. In a rage Prince Imperial Sincline (Prince Lotor in Voltron.) kills the Deathblack Beastman who soon reverts back into Prince Samson. Angered over the murder of his son, Samson's father King Heracles tries to shoot down Sincline's ship, but is killed when Sincline returns fire. Also, Heracles daughter Princess Amue (Romelle in Voltron.) is kidnapped by Sincline. The final scene of this episode is of the GoLion Team (Voltron Force in Voltron.) and Heracles' surviving son Prince Alor (Prince Bandor in Voltron.) standing over the graves of his father and brother and vowing to get his revenge against the Galara Empire for their deaths.
