The episode first aired on June 19, 1996. Its original American air date was February 22, 2012 (on Nicktoons) due to the existence of A Grand Problem in the original episode rotation.
Giru convinces the Z Warriors to land on planet M-2, his home planet. It is a trap though and Giru is greeted by General Rilldo and is told he has done a good job of luring the humans to the planet. At the end of the episode the Z Warriors meet up with a group of strong robots who call themselves the Sigma Force. After a short fight the robots capture Trunks and Goku and take them away.
