Vor-Tech: Undercover Conversion Squad is an animated television series produced by Universal Cartoon Studios.[1] It aired for one season of thirteen episodes in first-run syndication as part of Claster Television's "Power Block" package along with ReBoot, Beast Wars: Transformers and G.I. Joe Extreme, until the block's discontinuation in 1997.[2] The series was based on a toy line developed by Kenner Products.[3]

Overview

The VOR-Tech Undercover Conversion Squad is a group of secret agents led by Hudson Roarke. Their mission is to stop Hudson’s older brother Damian Roarke—known as Lord Matrix—and his evil "Bio Mechs" from infecting the world with a techno-infectious plague.[4] Similar to the M.A.S.K. franchise, the VOR-Tech agents had special masks and transforming vehicles, with special computer systems that imbue them and their vehicles with special powers.

The series was canceled after only thirteen episodes, and has not been released onto home video.
