Naxzela is a planet occupied by the Galra Empire that was originally formed by Altean terraforming technology. Haggar uses her dark magic to remotely reactivate the technology and turn the planet into a bomb. It is freed from the Empire's control by the Voltron Coalition and Lotor, securing a third of the Empire's territory.
Naxzela is a hospitable planet with a breathable atmosphere. It is largely colonized as a military base for the Galra Empire. The rocky surface is covered in a dense fog. The military base comprises a large station surrounded by a cloaked minefield and the skies are filled with Galra warships.
The core of the planet is an ancient decommissioned Altean terraforming plant that is connected to towering generators covering the planet's surface. These generators do not rise from their station until the core is activated, at which point they create an energy field preventing anything from leaving the surface. The barrier consists of a forcefield physically blocking escape, as well as a spike in gravity levels that even Voltron has difficulty fighting against. The generator rods are hollow and lead down to the core of the planet.
Heximite makes up a large portion of the planet's surface; it is a chemical component which will explode when put under too much pressure, making the planet a deadly bomb when that could annihilate as much as ten solar systems if the terraforming technology is reactivated.
There are no known inhabitants occupying the planet aside from Galra military.
- Magnetic distortion from the planet's terraforming technology prevents communication with anyone on it.
- Naxzela's location is within or near the Galra map of zone Rebulon 55. The bomb explosion is predicted to affect zones Rebulon 4 through 69, an entire quadrant.
