  • With the powerful Voltron as their aide, the crew of the Galaxay Garrison ship Explorer heads out to search for new worlds.

    The first full episode to feature "Vehicle Voltron" gets the series started on the right foot. The Japanimated series "Armored Fleet Diarugger XV" is what was used to create this portion of the popular series. Totally unrelated to "King of Beasts Golion," (The Japanimated series used to create "Lion Voltron".) this series introduces us to a new group of characters and enemies. This episode shows the viewer what's in store by giving us a glimpse of well written stories, great suspense and spectacular battle sequences between the Voltron Force and the Drule Empire lead by the evil and determined Emporer Zeppo.moreless
