In the year 2300 (United Earth Year 192), the Earth is under attack from an extraterrestrial enemy known as the Radam. The Radam (Venomoid) are led by armored soldiers known as the Tekkamen (Teknomen)
The Space Knights have been unsuccessful at repelling the aliens until the arrival of Blade, a young man who has the ability to transform into an armored warrior known as Tekkaman Blade (Teknoman)
Also commanding the Radam armies are other Tekkamen. Once human, the Tekkamen were captured and transformed by the Radam to assist in the takeover of Earth. They are endowed with impenetrable armor, super-human strength, and quantum energy weapons. The Tekkamen transform using power drawn from their System Box crystals that are unique to each holder. Blade is one of a handful of Tekkamen. Unlike the others, he fights to defend Earth and for the most part, is free of the brainwashing influence which the Radam imposed over their captives to make them subservient.
Before the arrival of the Radam there was a deep space exploration ship called the Argos. It was the Argos that first encountered the Radam probe ship. Aboard the Argos were the Aiba (Carter) family: Blade's family and their ship crew. Whilst exploring the outer rings of Saturn, the Argos' radar picks up an unusual gravitational disturbance. Going to investigate, the crew discover the disturbance to be an alien ship, and as they get closer, they are drawn in by a tractor beam. Excited at the prospect of encountering alien life, the crew board the vessel and discover the Radam (Venomoid).
