A Rocket designer, Dr. Kasuga, was killed by Alien Tigris who aims to prevent a spacecraft known as The Photon Rocket from being constructed. With the Doctor's house burned to the ground, the Kasuga siblings, consisting of 5 children of Dr. Kasuga, luckily prevented the destruction of the Photon Rocket blueprint.

They decided to fulfill their father's last wish to complete the construction of Photon Rocket, with the help of their father's acquaintances across Japan. While fighting against various Aliens desiring to prevent the completion of the Photon Rocket. When things get tricky, The second son Koji Kasuga through the use of "Silver Power" transforms into Silver Kamen to protect those in great danger.

By Episode 11, the rocket is completed and successfully launched into space. When in the destination, The gigantic Alien Southern attacks, and destroyed the rocket.

Notes

  • Originally broadcast from November 28, 1971-May 21, 1972. Some of the production staff of the second half of Silver Kamen were formerly of Tsuburaya Pro. and worked on Ultraseven. The new staff retooled the show to have more Ultra-like elements in an attempt to save it from low ratings. Unfortunately, this retool backfired and the show was cancelled.
