The New Frontier is an untamed region of space where the only law is the Star Sheriffs. From its space station, a team of brave young people-Saber Rider, Colt, Fireball, and April-ride out in their sheriff-shaped giant robot to defend the galaxy from bad guys like the Outriders. Before "versioning" for the U.S. market where, with its Wild West theme, it was inevitably headed, SR&tSS; was set in the solar system, where the alien Deskula invaders had conquered Ganymede, and Earth was defended by the all-Japanese hero Shinji and his buddies, whose names were regarded (by the Japanese) as suitably Western-Bill, Richard, Marian, and Walter. When the series was altered for U.S. consumption, story editor Marc Handler (who went on to produce Voltron) had to make teen Texan Colt into the hero and sideline the original lead, Japanese kid Fireball, resulting in some hilarious scenes where other characters are looking at Fireball but supposedly listening to Colt. He also had problems with the amount of teenage drinking in the original, editing out all drunken behavior and moving many scenes from saloons to the "coffee shops" and "soda fountains" that were so much a part of the Old West.
