In the far future planet Earth is in a time of peace and prosperity. The president of the Terran League launches a mission to explore our galaxy and build a complete map of the stars. The Rugger Team is an exploration, planetary survey, and defensive fleet that is assigned such mission. However, soon after commencing their voyage, the Rugger Team and their flagship, the Rugger Guard, are attacked by the powerful, evil and tyrannical Galveston Empire. Dairugger XV, the legendary super robot, must defend the Rugger Guard and its fleet as they attempt to continue their mission.
In the United States, the original series was heavily edited to become part of the Voltron series. Dairugger is known in the U.S. as Voltron - Vehicle Team or Voltron of the Near Universe.
For Dairugger elements only present in Voltron continuity, use the Voltron (series) tag.
