Bardock goes to Planet Vegeta to recover and sees his infant son, Kakarot. Here, he is getting ready to descend on the Earth to wipe out all life. He begins to envision Kakarot facing future opponents and Planet Vegeta’s demise at the hands of Frieza, the Universe’s emperor, and Saiyan overlord.

Bardock dismisses the visions and returns to Planet Meat to find most of his teammates dead. Moreover, his best friend Tora critically injured. It becomes clear through Tora’s confession that Dodoria, the henchman of Frieza was the one to slay and betray Bardock’s Unit. He was also the culprit responsible for the injury of all the other elite warriors.

On the other hand, Frieza ordered the attack on the crew because he was concerned about the Saiyans’ growing power. He challenges Dodoria’s men and beats them all, quickly overwhelmed by Dodoria’s single-mouth blast. While he suffers a serious injury, he is still able to get back to Planet Vegeta.
