The Lion Voltron Episodes
Season One

Voltron’s first season was a re-edit redub of the original Japanese show 'GoLion'. The original show was considered much too violent for American TV so it was tamed down and had its story lines adapted for the US. As such the storyline we know is far from that of the original show.

In 'GoLion' Arus is a planet Altea that was nearly destroyed. The team were escaped slaves originally taken from an post-apocalyptic Earth. The Galaxy Garrison cutaway shots are really clips from a totally different show called 'Armored Fleet Dairugger XV' that Vehicle Voltron was created from. The so called ‘robots’ in the attacking armies were never really robots but very much alive, they being called ‘robots’ to make the violence against people and Voltron’s hack and slashing more palatable.

GoLion is an extremely good and at times powerfully emotional show and I highly recommend that every fan should collect it, just be sure to forget about what you thought you knew about Voltron when watching. GoLion's plots are much more deep and logical than Voltron, Keep in mind you may not want to let young kids watch as there are valid reasons WEP needed to change it for American afternoon TV.

Well enough about the history, on with the show we grew up on Voltron, Defender of the Universe!

Their ship is attacked by Yurack. The statue of the Black lion shoots out a beam to guide them and stabilize their crash.
