Overview

8 years has past since the Paladins of Voltron disbanded, with peace finally reigning across the universe. However, the universe would once again find itself in jeopardy as an otherworldly being from beyond the quintessence field threatens to consume the peaceful reality that Voltron brought. Now, the truth behind Zarkon and Haggar has begun its move to consume all reality once more. Can the Paladins unite one final time to stop this menacing threat?!?

Plot

In the time before the multiverse and Voltron's creation, the first being to exist was the mother of all Balmera, Drule. Having dwelled in the quintessence field since the dawning of creation, Drule has fed for eons upon the many alternate realities of the multiverse; realities it breached with the fragments of its body, the trans-reality comets, and then consumed with its many appendages, which was the rift creatures.

But it became different when Voltron was forged; a weapon made of its very being that breached Daibazaal. Twice it foiled Drule's feeding and closed the universe off from it, despite its efforts using Zarkon and Haggar as pawns. But during that final battle that threatened all realities, it found a new pawn: a lonely soul who cried out for her mother.

In a alternate reality, Fara was the young daughter of Queen Allura and legendary hero Isamu Kurogane; both saviors of the universe from the Galran menace and rulers of New Alterra. Inheriting her mother's latent powers and her father's indominable spirit, Fara is much docile but suffered from a lack of control of her Altean powers that many feared threaten the planet. But despite her loneliness and isolation, the only light she held closely was of her mother.

The battle that redefined the multiverse between Voltron and Haggar threatening their reality, Queen Allura entrusted Isamu to protect Fara in a final effort to save themselves from their dying universe. Without saying goodbye, Fara cried out for her mother as her power tore the ark that carried her and Isamu across time and space; separating her from Isamu and left her adrift in the space between realities alone.

Fara eventually found a close friend and savior in Drule, since she could commune with the giant mother of Balmera and connect herself to its vast trans-reality powers with her overwhelming Altean magic, becoming omniscent of all the new realities after Voltron. She learned a terrible truth: a version of her mother Allura had sacrificed herself to restore all realities, but doing so erased every version of her from the multiverse.

Now Fara has worked with Drule to consume all of the realities it failed to feed; doing so with the promise to return her mother to her. Meanwhile, Isamu has traverse across realities to find her missing daughter and fulfill his last promise to Allura. His journey eventually brings him to reuniting the Paladins of Voltron.
