The Torque Armada is the first episode of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. It first aired on October 2, 2000, and is the third episode in production.
Zurg's Hornets spring Torque from a prison transport and have him brought to Planet Z. While Torque is on Planet Z, Zurg has the Grubs place a cell-separating device on Torque that enables him to make clones of himself. While this is happening, Team Lightyear's trying to focus on their job of patrolling Tanker Alley.
