Operation Dragonfire: Day 5

10th of 10 episodes between the regular seasons of the Sunbow and DiC series. Written by Doug Booth. First aired September 2, 1989.









Preceded by: Operation Dragonfire: Day 4
Followed by: DiC Season 1 Opening Sequence

As the Joes work to activate a Dragonfire shield at Sorcerer's Mesa, the last and greatest source of Dragonfire, Cobra launches an attack based on information provided by Scoop. Scoop warns Sgt. Slaughter ahead of time, but Cobra splits its attack force, nearly cutting the Joes off from the Mesa. Slaughter's team slips inside just as the shield goes up. Destro merges the three Cobra-controlled Dragonfire sites to attack the Mesa, but the shield holds.

Cobra then connects its vehicles to Dragonfire to destroy the rock beneath the protected Mesa site, but Scoop transmits the connection frequency to the Joes. Meanwhile, Low-Light corners Scoop but is convinced of his loyalties when he sees Scoop has tied up two Cobras. The Joes' counterattack knocks out Cobra's Dragonfire capabilities. The Joes then drive Cobra out from the other Dragonfire bases.
