Voltron (2016–…): Season 3, Episode 4 - Hole in the Sky - full transcript

The castle receives a distress signal that leads Allura and Coran to believe that they may not be the only surviving Alteans.

What's going on?

Yeah, these have never gone off before.

Allura, what is it?

Looks like you guys just saw a ghost.

That's just the thing. It's
an old Altean distress code.

One used by King Alfor's ships.

Could it be?

Are we not the last Alteans alive?

Wait. What if someone's cloning

the signal to try and lure us in?

The signal is from an Altean ship,

and we're going to find it.

That looks like a

Tel-Galax exploration shuttle.

One of my father's deep space vessels.

According to the ship's
identification code,

it's Commodore Trayling's ship.

But I don't see any records of

its destination or mission.

- What happened to it?
- Is it stuck in a wormhole?

That's unlike any
wormhole I've ever seen.

There's a massive amount
of energy emanating from it,

centered right where the ship is stuck.

We have to see if anyone is aboard.

- They may need our help.
- We could send a probe over to it,

see if we can get some kind
of idea what this thing is?

Do it.

The energy shows no signs of radioactive

decay and it's not thermal.

It's not gravitational, our
probe is steady on course,

and the light is radiating out,

not in, like it would in a black hole.

But out from where?

That energy signature, I know it.

It's radiating quintessence!

Ooh! That's weird.

Okay, well, let's not
go anywhere near there.

We must.

Hold on. Didn't you
just see what happened?

Voltron's compositional strength

far exceeds anything
else in this universe.

We received an Altean distress call,

which must mean that
someone is alive on the ship.

As Paladins of Voltron,
it is our duty to help.

Princess, I still think there's a

chance that this whole thing is a trap.

Even if it's not a trap, it's far

too dangerous to go in there.

I'll do it myself if I have to.

All right, let's take it slow.

Pidge, any chance you can explain

what I'm seeing right now?

The Euclidian space around the ship

is obviously some kind of anomaly.

But the energy source doesn't
originate from anything that registers

with my understanding
of how reality works.

I'll take that as a "no."

I'll scan the ship for biorhythms.

That's strange.

I'm not showing any
signs of life on the ship.

Maybe not on this half,

but there is more to this
ship than we are seeing.

We need to go through there.

The glowy, explode-y area?

Pidge, keep an eye on Voltron's vitals.

Everyone, be prepared to
abort if things get hairy.

Roger that. Ready to abort immediately.

Guys, my sensors are going crazy.

Technically, we should be torn
apart the same way the probe was.

But somehow Voltron is
completely unaffected

by the stress of the spatial distortion.

Hello? What are you seeing?

I'm losing visual. Hello?


We must have crossed through because

- that's the front of the ship.
- Wait.

The back half of this ship, it's gone!

Coran! Coran!

We've lost sight of the Castle.

- Coran, are you there?
- Where did he go?

And where did that planet come from?

According to my sensors, we're still in

exactly the same place we were before.

Guys, this is gonna sound strange,

but now I'm detecting multiple
biorhythms aboard the ship.


It seems like we've only got one clue

to help us figure out what's going on,

and it's floating right over there.

Hello? Is anyone here?

Oh, man. This place is
totally freaking me out.

Does it feel like a haunted
ghost ship to anybody else?

Is it just me?


did the crew abandon ship?

I don't know, but they
couldn't have gotten

far without their spacesu...

Those aren't empty!

We located the second comet based

on King Alfor's information.

We managed to get it
aboard, but it seems

to be causing massive disturbances.

We're heading back to Altea,

but I don't know if we'll
be able to make it that far.

At this rate...

What happened here?

Something deadly.

This still doesn't explain the

biorhythms I picked up in this area.

Look out!

No way! Shiro?


Stay back!

If you've come for the
comet, you'll never get it.

I'll die before I let it
fall into Altean hands.

- Shiro, please.
- My name is not Shiro.

What the heck is happening right now?

Did everyone get amnesia and
then wake up with weird accents?

- You know us?
- Of course, we do!

You're Shiro, our leader.
Paladin of the Black Lion?

And you're Slav. I rescued
you from a space prison.

- You're also slightly crazy.
- I may be crazy,

but you've never rescued
me from anything before.


- you're from an alternate reality.
- This is an alternate reality.

Uh, what's that now?

I think, when we passed through

that glowy, explode-y area,

we entered an alternate reality.

You mean, like, what Slav
was always talking about?

Well, not you. Well, you,
yeah, but a different you.

One that talks about
alternate realities a lot.

Oh, that's him.

Why did you attack the
captain and his crew?

- Stay back, Altean.
- We found the ship this way.

But I can't say I'm sorry they're gone.

Oh, no!

- More Alteans!
- Wait!

More Alteans?

Their scanners must have
picked up your arrival.

Sven, let's go!

If I were you, I'd run.

What the heck just happened?

Did he say we're being
boarded by Alteans?

Put down your weapons!

- Alteans!
- It can't be.


Uh, I'm confused. What is going on?

Are you Empress Allura?

I am Princess Allura.

Please, stand.

I am Commander Hira, Empress.

How can you be here?

You put down the Galra Uprising

and established the Altean Empire

10,000 years ago.

Where we're from, all the Alteans

were wiped out by Zarkon

when he destroyed your planet.

Where did you come from?

Amazing. Your theory about Voltron

was finally proven correct.

I was personally hoping to
see some more fireworks

when it hit that energy swirl.

I guess all of the previous
attempts to get it out

were just more enjoyable to watch.

For me, not for your pilots.

Voltron made it through because

he is made of the same material

as that comet that King Alfor

tried to hide from my father.

Now, let's see if the new paladins

bring it back out to us.

But what if Voltron is unable

to escape the other dimension?

It's another reality, Ezor.

What if they aren't able to
escape the other reality?

If Voltron disappears
from our world, then we win.

If they make it out with the
comet, we'll take it from them.

It's a win either way.

This is the comet Commodore Trayling

must've been talking about
in his transmission.

It seems to be caught between two

realities, just like the ship.

Could you obtain a sample
for us with your lion?

I can try.


It's Voltron.


I mean, it's not Voltron, obviously,

but the readings from this comet

are the same ones
Zarkon was searching for.

The same ones that led
us to the Blue Lion.

That's how you were able to

pass through to this reality.

Your vehicle was made from the
same trans-reality material.

So, that's why Voltron's so powerful.

With this material,

Altea can create their own
trans-reality traveling ships.

We can spread our peace
and stability to all realities.

General Hira,

I have just stumbled across
something in this ship's hold

that will ensure Altea's
rule for millennia to come.

So, the Alteans of this
reality defeated the Galra?

Led by you, My Empress.

Without your will to fight and
avenge the loss of your father,

Altea would not have been able
to spread peace and stability

throughout the universe.

That's the last of them.

Do you think this plan will work?

Don't worry.

I'm 60 percent sure this is one of the

.15 percent of realities

where this plan works
100 percent of the time.

Do you think the people from the

other reality will join the Alteans?

If they're really my friends
from another reality,

there's a 72 percent chance

they'll figure out what's right.

Defeating Zarkon was the first step,

but we refuse to give
up until all worlds

know the true peace Altea has achieved.

That is so wonderful!

No struggle, no wars.

- That doesn't even sound possible.
- Is it not?

Look at Moxilous.

For generations, his people
have been in constant battle

with the other planets in their system.

It was a barbaric, futile existence.

But look at him now.

So, what changed?

The hoktril.

Our civilization's most advanced

technological achievement.

What does that do?

It saps the fighting
force from our enemies.

Their will, you might say.

Advancements have been made.

Citizens that might have been casualties

of war in Empress Allura's day

can now be rehabilitated.

Entire races who warred for millennia

can now know peace

and help us to further our new world.

So, they become a part of
the Altean peace movement?

You mean, slave labor?

Oh, no, no. They're not slaves

because they don't have will.

Slaves are

always trying to escape or revolt.

The non-cogs are content
doing what they're told.

Preservation of life

is the Altean Empire's highest priority.

And with this material,

we can do even more than
we thought possible.

But you're taking away their free will.

The same will that would end
your life with no remorse.

Thanks to us, no innocent
will lose its life

to the free will of an evil being.

Empress Allura, let me
show you something.

This is our Altea.

Come with me. Allow me to show you

the magnificence it has achieved.

Is anyone else getting a
strange vibe from these guys?

Yeah, there's definitely something

off about these Alteans.

I mean, is it me or did they pretty

much scramble the big dude's brain?

Yoo-hoo! Up here!

Whoa! How'd you find us?

I figured there was a
high probability that...

Wait, stop. Nope. Never mind.

We gotta get to Keith and Allura

and figure out a way to stop the
Alteans from getting that comet.

Already on it. We just need to do one
more thing and you guys can help.


I had a feeling the Guns of
Gamara were on this ship.

But I didn't know Empress Allura's

friends would be working with them.

Returning to Altea...

It seemed like such an impossible dream,

- I could never allow the thought.
- Allura,

this might not be the
Altea you remember.

You're right.

This Altea is home to a people

who made sure that the Galra scourge was

unable to spread across the universe,

as it did in your reality.

Empress, I assure you, we will do

everything in our power to help.

The comet in this ship's hold possesses

the ability to travel between realities.

If you will activate this
ancient ship's power,

we can fly forward and remove
the comet from the tear.

We can use it to travel to your

universe and bring peace there,

even to the Galra.

Maybe you should think
about this, Allura.

It wasn't that long ago that
we thought all Galra were bad.

Maybe things aren't as black and white

as she's making them out to be.

Keith, these are my people,

and they may be the strongest
allies we have in this war.

I've tried every scan and
test I can think of.

There's no sign of Voltron anywhere.

How could I have stopped her?
You know how she is.

I can't understand anything
that you're saying,

but I'll assume by your tone
that that was an insult.

Not good.

You've done it, Allura.

Soon, we'll use the comet to spread

peace throughout every reality.

What is going on?

Empress, the Guns of Gamara
have infiltrated this ship.

These people were working with them.

Let our friends go!

Hira, you and the rest of Altea

have turned this universe

into an army of slaves.

Peace at the sake of freedom!

Slaves? Is this true?

Non-cogs are not slaves!

You're the ones who spread
chaos and destruction!

We're going to scan
that little brain of yours

and get every last rebel location.

Finally, our wars can end.

Allura, we cannot let this happen.

Hira, please.

We both want the same thing.


Do we?

Your weakness has brought
nothing but pain and suffering

to your people at the
hands of the Galra.

We have brought peace and order to ours.

And, with this comet, we will bring our

peace to every reality.

You're no empress of mine.

And you're no Altean.

Why are you laughing?

Because this is the reality where

everything works out fine.

Just in time.


Let's go.

- Pidge, which way to the lions?
- To the left!


Sven! Are you okay? You saved my life!

I'll be fine.

Just get me to Space Hospital.

They're blocking our way to the lions!

Everyone, hang on!

Does he do this in every reality?

I'll take care of Sven.

You just get to your lions!

This is all my fault.
I activated the ship.

They're going to dislodge the comet

and have the power to
terrorize every reality.

No, you can still get the
comet away from them.

Pidge, scan for the comet.

Yep. Already picked up
on its elemental signature.

Everyone, we're going back in to get it.

Form Voltron!

Okay, now what?

We need to find the
exact spot we came in

or else we might not make it home.

Take them down. Engage thrusters.

Thrusters ready. Huh?

What's happening?

We've lost thrusters!

We're unable to pursue!

I love this reality!

Take them out!

I found it!


You're back!

Oh, thank the ancients!

Paladins, can you hear me? Are you okay?

Thank you for answering my
distress signal, Voltron.

Paladins, can you hear me? Are you okay?

Coran, we're here.

Allura, you did the right thing.

You couldn't let Hira get that ore.

But now, Lotor has it.

You didn't know.

That is the problem. We never know.

And that is exactly why my father sent

the lions away so many years ago.

To avoid this reality.

I finally understand.

We'll get it back.

But if we don't?

Lotor is always one step ahead of us.

He has a plan for that ore,

and if he succeeds,

the Galra will finally have a weapon

as powerful as Voltron.
