|Planet Stop for Repairs|
Aboard the Explorer, the three Voltron captains go to Hawkins to express their concerns on the continuing failure of their mission to find new worlds, they then tell him of their plan of instead hitting the home world of the Drule Empire and forcing them to sign a peace treaty. Hawkins rejects any such idea, insisting peace is the only real way. The Explorer receives the distress call discovering its Drule.
The Voltron Force sees that it is a Nerok's fleet but are confused that they didn't attack back lulling them into questioning whether they really are in distress. The Drule commanders argue over how to deal with the Galaxy Alliance, Hazar argues for peace while the others argue that there can never be peace, Hazar having to bow to the majority decision giving Nerok permission to engage. Nerok plays possum until the whole fleet is in range then releases his Robeast. Each side waits for the other to make the first move, ending up in a standoff. The Robeast not programed for such a scenario just flies away leaving the Drule fleet no choice but to do the same.
