TV Special Synopsis

On Planet Vegeta, a Saiyan named Kakarrot is born. Meanwhile, Kakarrot’s father Bardock is busy conquering Planet Kanassa together with his team of fellow Saiyans. Though they succeed in wiping out almost all of the planet’s inhabitants, Bardock is attacked by a single survivor, Tohro. To avenge his race, Tohro curses Bardock with the ability to see the future, so that he may be plagued by visions of the Saiyans’ own forthcoming annihilation. While Bardock stays on Planet Vegeta to recover from this attack, his team goes on to Planet Meat, their next target. Bardock finally makes a full recovery, and goes to see his newborn son. Disgusted by his son’s low battle power, Bardock judges him to be nothing more than scum. And with that, he heads off to Planet Meat to join his comrades.

When Bardock arrives on Meat, however, he discovers that Freeza has turned on the Saiyans, and that his team has been wiped out by Dodoria. To avenge his comrades, Bardock kills Dodoria’s men, but is easily beaten by Dodoria himself. Left for dead, Bardock recovers and heads to Planet Vegeta to warn the other Saiyans of Freeza’s betrayal. Just as Bardock nears the planet, Kakarrot is dispatched to a distant world called “Earth”, and the pair’s spaceships’ briefly cross paths. Arriving on Planet Vegeta, Bardock is laughed at and disbelieved by everyone he meets, and he soon realizes that he has no choice but to confront Freeza all by himself. Freeza’s spaceship approaches Planet Vegeta, and Bardock flies out to meet it, defeating many of Freeza’s men along the way. Freeza emerges from his ship, and fires a gigantic energy ball at Planet Vegeta, which Bardock is powerless to repel. Planet Vegeta is completely destroyed by this attack, along with Bardock and Freeza’s petty henchmen, while Freeza himself laughs with delight.

Meanwhile, Kakarrot’s spaceship has landed on Earth. Baby Kakarrot is soon found by an old man named Son Gohan, who adopts him and gives him the name “Son Goku”. And so, the story of Dragon Ball begins…
