Pan's Gambit (パンにおまかせ!悟空救出作戦!!, Pan ni Omakase! Goku kyu shutsu sakusen!!) is the first episode of the Baby Saga and the seventeenth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. The episode first aired on June 26, 1996. Its original American air date was November 14, 2003.
With Goku and Trunks captured, Pan decides to infiltrate the machine base. She manages to get close without being detected, but then tons of robots show up. In order to avoid being captured, Pan must disguise herself as a robot.
Meanwhile, the robots are scanning the bodies of Goku and Trunks, who are asleep in capsule chambers. They are trying to determine their strength when General Rilldo comes in. He realizes Pan was not there, and orders a group of robots out to find her. At the same time, Giru decides to let General Rilldo download all the fighting information of the Z Fighters to the Mega Cannon Sigma Force.
Pan has joined a group of robots that look the same, but when they walk through a wall her cover seems to be blown. She lucks out and instead of being captured, she's accused of being defective. They throw her into a room full of defective robots. These robots actually have feelings, so they were deemed not worthy. Pan manages to blast her way out, and gets directions to where Goku and Trunks are being held.
When General Rilldo realizes Pan is in the base, he sends Natt of the Sigma Force robots to deal with her. The robot seems to be winning with ease, but then Pan figures out he can only predict moves she has done before. Then, she fires her Maiden's Rage technique, destroying the robot.
General Rilldo is just about to send the rest of the force to deal with Pan when she breaks in. At the same time, the machine detections go crazy because Goku is waking up.
