Exhausted after a battle, the crew must spring back into action when Zarkon's forces track them down. Coran gets infected by a slippery virus. As they manage to escape, it is only after jumping that their wormhole generator is malfunctioning due to broken focus lenses. When Team Voltron attempt some rest- Lance and Keith try to make it to a pool, Hunk makes transparent blue cookies, Pidge learns beginner Altaean, and Shiro is on watch. Zarkon's ship discovers them again and another battle and jump leaves them without anymore crystal lenses needed for another wormhole. When hiding in a cosmic storm cloud, Allura comes to some realization that Zarkon is following them by tracking her energies. In engineering, Coran details what type of lenses they need, then Pidge remembers Hunk's cookies are exactly what they need. Coran positions the paladins in a unique fashion INSIDE the wormhole generator in order for it to fully function. Using his Slipperies, Coran lubricates the lenses to fully jump the castle away from Zarkon.
For millennia, the evil Galra Empire has plagued the universe by conquering planets and destroying their inhabitants. The only known threat to the empire's power and plans, is the legendary "Defender of the Universe" Voltron, a 100 meter tall robot warrior composed of five lion mechas whose whereabouts are presumed to be unknown. The Galra Empire's path of conquest and search for Voltron has led them to Earth's solar system. A group of space pilots-Shiro, Keith, Lance, Pidge, and Hunk-discover the blue lion and immediately get swept up into the Galran War. They meet Princess Allura, become the next Paladins, and reunite the five lions to form Voltron and free the universe from the Galra Empire.
**NOTE: Even though Netflix releases all episodes of Voltron: Legendary Defender on one day, they are portrayed on the TV Calendar as airing one episode a day, for ease of visualisation.
