A series of space accidents turn out to be the work of the Armanoid aliens, who plan to conquer Earth. Professor Tachibana gathers a team around him at the Future Science Invention Center and prepares five state-of-the-art vehicles for Shin, Go, Lisa, and Captain Kenmotsu. Three of the Tester vehicles combine to make the Zero Tester 1 super vehicle, which successfully sees off the Armanoid invasion in 39 episodes. The rest of the series, retitled ZT: Save the Earth! (Chikyu o Mamotte!), was aimed at a younger age group and featured an attack by the new Gallos aliens.

An early gathering of many of anime's future greats, particularly for the Gundam series, this Gerry Anderson "homage" escaped complaint from the Japanese division of ITC because Thunderbirds (1965) was distributed in Japan by Tohoku Shinsha, who also produced ZT! Tohoku producer Banjiro Uemura would eventually work with Gerry Anderson himself on the abortive Terrahawks anime, and he would go it alone with the blatant Thunderbirds 2086. Crystal Art was eventually renamed Studio Nue.
