From days of long ago comes a legend, the legend of Voltron, defender of the universe.

    Evil forces threaten to take over the universe, and Voltron is needed once more. Five space explorers set out to find and recover the legendary Voltron (and succeed within the first couple of episodes). After that, it was a weekly event for King Zarkon to send a horrible Robeast (robotic monster, so it was okay to cut it up on 80's television, like the robotic footsoldiers on Ninja Turtles) to try and take over, while the five main characters jump into their incredible giant robotic lions, then merge them together to form Voltron.

    There are actually three incarnations of Voltron but this version (Go-Lion) is considered the most recognizable and most popular.
