Synopsis[edit | edit source]


Rom, Blue Jet and Pro Truck Racer set off into space in Big Shuttle Robo in answer to a distress call from the Death Galaxy, a notorious black-spot for spaceship wrecks. They detect a large energy source but are then caught in a meteor shower, puncturing the cockpit and throwing the trio into space. They are then attacked by mysterious Gyandlar robot, controlled by the spirit of Grujios. His resurrection has also been detected by Gadess on the Gyandlar mothership. Grujios attacks the trio with space debris, forcing Rom to call up Baikanfu. The large robot fares no better as Grujios traps him in debris; Rom orders Jet and Pro Truck Racer to retreat. They reluctantly agree, swearing to return with reinforcements before departing in Big Shuttle Robo. Back on Cronos, Leina is distracted by her brother's troubles and is nearly ran over by Min, newly arrived to help build a new fortress near the remains of Emerald City. The site soon comes under attack from the Varigale-X but Rod Drill drives off the Gyandlar troops just as the battered Big Shuttle Robo returns.


Baldas and Gildis slice a wing off Big Shuttle Robo but Phantom Robo, Falcon Robo, Blackbird Robo, Jet Transer and Shuttle Robo are able to help him land. The Varigale-X is driven off but Grujios contacts Diondra to tell her of Rom's capture; after landing Jet and Pro Truck Racer give the bad news to Leina too. Garudi travels up to the Death Galaxy to retrieve Grujios. After learning of Rom's imprisonment, Gadess orders a full-scale assault on the fortress - with Grujios possessing Devil Satan 6. After everyone works hard fixing him, Leina and Min take Big Shuttle Robo up to the Death Galaxy and find the bound Baikanfu; a diamond arrives next to them and turns into a robot, easily dissipating the junk binding Baikanfu. He introduces himself as Dia Man. Meanwhile Jet and Pro Truck Racer are unable to match the possessed Devil Satan 6; thankfully Baikanfu returns to Cronos in time to turn the battle with the Gyandlar. Baikanfu kicks Devil Satan 6 hard enough to force him to separate, sending Grujios to disappear again.

  • Leina and Min put on what look like oxygen masks to go out into space when Rom didn't bother.

Animation and technical errors[edit | edit source]

  • Pro Truck Racer has grown to twice everyone's height again, as per his debut episode.
  • Through the magic of stock footage, the debris Grujios threw at Rom is back in the same place when the second shuttle trip is made.
