But Sven is then double-crossed by Lotor and Maahox and the force must help their old teammate in order to get his son back.

Featured Characters



  • This episode didn't premiere in the usual time slot. Instead, it was the final episode of a day-long Voltron Force marathon on NickToons on the Sunday following Thanksgiving.[1]
  • First appearance of Sven in the Voltron Force continuity
  • Sven's infection is a reference to the DoTU episode "The Right Arm of Voltron"
    • Apparently, there were no obvious signs of a haggarium infection in the years since he was bitten by Haggar's cat; indeed, it is unknown if the Voltron Force back then even knew what haggarium was. And it is doubtful that Sven's baby was conceived on Crydor. On the other hand, haggarium does enhance physical capabilities, and this could explain why he survived that fall from the roof of Castle Doom, and was in a good enough condition to fly Blue Lion again less than a year later.
  • Neither Allura, Keith, nor Lance showed any obvious surprise that Sven had an infant son.
  • This episode implies that Sven's family was among the settlers of Crydor, assuming Sven himself was born after they left Crydor.
