Voltron is an American animated television series adaptation of two different Japanese anime television series, (Beast King Go-Lion and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV). The series, which aired in syndication from September 10, 1984 to November 18, 1985, was originally titled Voltron: Defender of the Universe.

The second season was based on Armored Fleet Dairugger XV, with the storyline considerably changed. In this iteration of Voltron, the Galaxy Alliance's home planets have become overcrowded, and a fleet of explorers has been sent to search for new planets to colonize. Along the way, they attract the attention of the evil Drule Empire, long engaged in an ongoing war against the Alliance, and the Drules proceed to interfere in the mission of the explorers and the colonists. Since the Voltron of Planet Arus was too far away to help the explorers, a totally new Voltron is constructed to battle the Drule threat.

This Voltron team consisted of fifteen members, who were divided into three teams of five, known respectively as the Land, Sea, and Air Teams. Each team was specialized in gathering data or fighting in their area of expertise. Each team could also combine their vehicles into a bigger machine, with each combined vehicle differing amongst the three teams. These fighters were:

* The Aqua Fighter (Sea Team)
* The Turbo Terrain Fighter (Land Team)
* The Strato Fighter (Air Team)

When necessary, all fifteen vehicles combine to form the mighty Voltron. This Voltron in the toyline was referred to as Voltron I (also called the Vehicle Team), possibly due to it being closer to Earth than the more popular Voltron III (or Lion Force Voltron).

According to the backstory provided by World Events Productions, Vehicle Voltron was constructed after consultations by the Galaxy Alliance with Planet Arus's King Alfor before his death, with the new Voltron's designs retrofitted in part from the original, much older, Lion Voltron schematics.

In the continuity of the Image and Devil's Due comic series, Vehicle Voltron came about through the Galaxy Garrison reverse engineering the original Voltron after abducting it from Arus under orders from a Drule spy. The machine was renamed "V-15" within the comics, and was first deployed after Voltron to recapture until they receive new orders to support it. Unlike the animated series, which only had two crossovers with the Lion Force (once at the end of the Lion Force run, and the other in the "Fleet of Doom" special, which brought both Voltrons together), and which depicted the two Voltron Forces as being longstanding friends, the Devil's Due comics showed Keith and Jeff as having an antagonistic relationship with one another, particularly with regard to Voltron's accidental "sneak attack" on Vehicle Voltron during the robots' first battle together.[/spoiler]
