Episode Guides
The Vehicle Voltron Episodes

Like Lion Voltron Vehicle Voltron was a re-edit redub but of a totally different Japanese cartoon called Armored Fleet Dairugger XV.

GoLoin and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV were completely unrelated shows but were combined, occasionally swapping footage back and forth between them to make them appear to be the same show. For example all of the Galaxy Gariosn shots in Lion Voltron were actually shots from Dairugger not GoLion. Like the Lion Voltron episodes Vehicle Voltron is plagued with people and ships being called ‘robots’ so the many deaths are more palatable as well as many last minute' escapes'. When watching the show (and the characters emotional reactions to ‘injuries’) that is obviously not what is going on.

The mission of the Stellar Ship USS Explorer is to search the near universe for uninhabited planets that can support life to provide new homes and resources for the growing populations of the Galactic Alliances's planets while having to deal with the war minded Drules who are desperately seeking the same.

Unlike Lion Voltron, Vehicle Voltron has a very linear plotline, each episode building on the story from the last so it’s best to watch them in order to follow the story progression.

1. In Search of New Worlds

The Explorer is ten-thousand light years from earth and in search for new planets to colonize and the Force is going stir crazy on the ship. They come across a planet that looks promising and send the Air Land and Sea teams out to investigate. The Drules detecting the Explorer try to dive them off and have the world for their own but are defeated by Voltron.

Plot Bunny: Jeff is from Earth but Lisa is not.

Plot Bunny: VV is nuclear powered and can only operate for five minutes. (though in later episodes they stay assembled much longer than that on escorts so perhaps they fixed that issue.)

Corny Speech Alert! “It’s regrettable that in this vast universe, space without end and who knows how many livable worlds, some men refuse to grow to match its size, to leave behind their selfish ambitions. Yes there’ll always be an evil menace like Quark but in times of great peril we’ll always have the protection of Voltron Defender of the Universe!" Hawkins

2 First Day On A New World

The team is busy scouting locations for base construction on the planet they discovered. The Drules have not given up hope knowing the planet is rich in fuel deposits. Hazar wants to bide his time and let the Alliance to the work setting up bases and then take them, but Quark wants to strike now, before they get a foothold.

Corny Speech Alert! “A Voltron Force can fight when they’re forced to but our mission is to establish peaceful new worlds and we can do it with the help of Voltron Defender of the Universe!” Jeff

3. Building a New World

The whole team is board waiting for the construction crews to show up. Chip is out walking when he is almost run over by a supply tuck. Chip jumps the driver the drive taking chip down with one solid punch. Jeff steps in and challenges the driver to a fight, Cliff and Krik having to step in and stop it. Later Jeff and the driver share a drink in the messdeck to laugh about it. Hazar sends a message of warning to evacuate or the planet will be destroyed. Knowing the emanate attack Hawkins evacuates all the crews from the planet, the Explorer and the Voltron force engages the enemy attack but many missiles get through destabilizing the planet’s core causing it to collapse in on itself.

Plot Bunny: Cliff and Jeff argue about how to behave as a captain.

Plot Bunny: Graham is a Marshal

Corny Speech Alert! “We’re all sadden by the needless destruction of that planet. We can’t let this setback stop us. We’re all out here for one purpose alone, to search out new planets suitable for colonization. The crowded people of our many worlds are depending on us. We cannot and will not let them down. Let us go on with our search find another planet and this time well keep it with the help of Voltron Defender of the Universe!” Newley
