Synopsis: The series begins with a flashback of the destruction of Planet Vegeta at the hands of?Frieza, and the upbringing of?Goku?on Earth as depicted in the original?Dragon Ball?series. Five years have passed since Goku's victory over?Piccolo?at the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, and he has since married?Chi-Chi?and now has a son named?Gohan. Goku and Gohan are heading towards a reunion with Goku's friends at?Master Roshi's island. Elsewhere, an odd-looking spacecraft crash lands on Earth. A man in battle armor emerges from the vessel and flies off to scout out a powerful life form he locates with the help of an apparatus on his eye. Piccolo is nearly killed by the stranger, but this is averted when the man leaves to scout out a more powerful life form. The other strong life form is Goku, who at the Kame House presents his son to Roshi,?Krillin, and?Bulma. The stranger arrives and surprises everyone when they notice he has a monkey-like tail, just like Goku used to have.?
