Synopsis by Hal Erickson
With the original Japanese telecast of "Goku. . .Super Saiyan" on November 7 1990, DragonBall Z's 27-episode "Namek Saga" came to an end. Arriving on Nemek after innumerable delays, Goku summons his new-found powers to defeat Recoome. Two of the villain's cohorts, Burter and Jeice, launch a counterattack against Goku. The astonishing results lead Vegeta to conclude that Goku has graduated to the lofty position of Super Saiyan--something to which Vegeta has long aspired, and is now summarily denied him. "Goku. . .Super Saiyan" was first seen in America on May 23 1998.
