The Paladins split up to gather resources for a showdown with Zarkon. Hunk and Keith travel into the belly of the planet-devouring creature known as a Weblum for scaultrite, a material needed in wormhole generators. While there, the instructional Coran made is dated to when he was in university and is corroded. The duo successfully enter the Weblum, but are separated after the first stomach, leaving Keith in the second and Hunk in the Weblum's bloodstream. In the second stomach, Keith finds a trapped a silent Galra pilot who helps him journey through the third stomach to reach the scaultrite. As the Weblum's defenses flare, the only way to make the scaultrite is for Hunk to threaten the beast enough outside to form the crystals. Upon the Weblum firing its beam, Keith packs more than enough scaultrite, but the Galran with him holds him up for a single full bag, and escapes. Keith thanks Hunk for his efforts, and Hunk pokes at Keiths newly learned Galra ancestry.
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.
