Pidge's home planet, Balto, has gone completely silent. The team travels there to investigate, and find the population has been turned into zombies.
When Pidge can't get into contact with his brother Chip on Intergalactic Ninja Appreciation Day, he gets worried about him and travels with the rest of the force to his home planet of Balto where every inhabitant is a ninja-scientist.
While there, they discovery that everyone has fallen off the grid going into stealth mode and turned into mindless "ninja-scientist zombies" with an appetite for the brains of the Voltron Force. They find the root of the cause when King Lotor returns and is more powerful than ever when he's able to transform into a samurai robeast which Voltron must defeat with Larmina's martial art form with her blazing katana in order to save the citizens from Maahox's brain vacuum for sucking out information about Voltron.
"They can do recon!?
"They're coming to get you, Larmina"
— Daniel, to Larmina
- First appearance of Chip
- How long was it since Lotor's arrival and Voltron's? If a planet like Balto stopped transmissions for even twelve hours, let alone a week, would not the Galaxy Alliance have sent a scout ship, if the Voltron Force themselves were unable to deploy in that time?
