Sir Lancelot was a Knight of the Round Table and best friend to King Arthur. He helped Arthur conquer his kingdom of Britannia and later travelled with him aboard Camelot to venture into space. Lancelot was often at the fore due to his bravery, making him the perfect leader for 'away teams'. Lancelot was a womaniser who sought to woo as many ladies as he could manage.
Lancelot will jump at any opportunity to woo women, even space alien women. He considers himself to be a knight of virtue and honour, even proclaiming 'conquering space babes' to be a worthy quest for a knight such as him. Lancelot considers women of a sexual nature to be great women, and he declares Morganna le Fay to be the greatest of them all for her frank sexual openness but she only has affection for Arthur. Lancelot abhors the notion that he might get married, even to a woman of Morgan's calibre[Pan 3]. Lancelot isn't very smart and is prone to making mistakes and rushing headlong into battles. He likes to lead and wants even his own son to appreciate the chain of command. He isn't above making practical jokes[Pan 1]. He has a steadfast sense of honour so he wouldn't execute a surrendered foe and would often offer the opportunity for surrender, especially of a much weaker opponent[Pan 2]. This same honour would lead him to battle against traitors, even if they didn't betray him personally[Pan 4].

As King Arthur's closest friend, Lancelot is invited to Arthur's secret meeting at Tintagel Castle, in Cornwall, where he unveils the discovery of a ship buried deep beneath the earth of Great Britain which, he claims, can fly through the sky and into space. At Arthur's mention of 'conquering space babes', Lancelot vouches that he is in. However it would require Morgan le Fay to sacrifice her magical island home, Avalon, to absorb and use enough magical energy to raise the ship from beneath the land. She is eventually goaded into compliance by Merlin the Younger after attempting to blackmail Arthur into engaging in their past relationship again. Queen Guinevere arrives to agree that Morgan should come with them into space so that her son, Prince Mordred, could be given a kingdom of his own - away from Britannia, which is for her own son, Prince Llacheu[Pan 3]. Sir Lancelot was not allowed to go to Mount Snowdon to watch for Camelot, the ship, to rise from the Irish Sea because Shalott would be there and it was deemed wise to separate the two of them because of Shalott's love for Lancelot. Vivane, The Lady of the Lake, would help Morgan with raising Camelot from beneath the land. She channelled powerful magical currents from the magical realm of Albion, through The Rift beneath Stonehenge, and into Morgan. Morgan was then able to act as a conduit and take possession of the ship buried deep down. This caused all of Great Britain to shake and Lancelot was almost crushed by a falling stone of Stonehenge. After almost destroying Ireland in the raising of the ship, it was finally airborne[Pan 5]. Camelot first went to Mercury, pinning the entire crew against the walls of the ship for their own safety during transit[Pan 6]. When Arthur found Mercury to be nothing but a boring rock in space, he had the ship fast-travel to Venus. When Tom a'Lincoln found life-signs on the planet he suggested an Away Team explore the planet. The first Away Team were a bunch of red-tabards and they were melted by acid rain. Spacesuits were discovered on Camelot and Sir Bedievere modified them to have tabards to depict the insignia of each knight. Sir Lancelot was chosen to lead the next Away Team and with several knights, including his own son Sir Galahad and the son of Arthur, Prince Mordred. When they came across an unusual rock-man creature, Lancelot attacked it with a spear. The spear bounced off but the rock-man didn't attack and Lancelot soon found they were friendly people. After the mission, one of the rock-men decided to join the Camelot Crew and was dubbed Andy by the humans[Pan 1]. When Camelot arrived at the planet Mars they found a fleet of perennial ships there, under the command of Chancellor Ctatherine of the Jupiterian Empire. They revealed to the humans that they had found an identical ship to Camelot in orbit around Mars, which they had called The Hopeful. Admiral Ltexi requested to temporarily join the Camelot Crew so that she could compare Camelot to The Hopeful for better understanding[Pan 7].
Ltexi introduced the humans to the Kryptons of the planet Saturn, the sixth planet in the solar system. The Kryptons had not achieved space flight so Prince Mordred hoped to keep up the pretence that they, humans, had. Lancelot was part of the diplomatic envoy that went to the X-Krypton City to initiate diplomatic talks. The Black Knight remained on guard outside the X-Krypton Custodian House. After lengthy discussions with the three Custodians, Gamma Pans, Omega Wier and Phoenix Tram, a sudden attack on the city is announced. Before the knights could debate on whether they ought to assist, The Black Knight rushes into battle, which earned admiration from Lancelot who was just as keen to step into the fray. The group find the raiders and help to defend the X-Kryptons along side Gamma Pans. The Kryptons wear protective liquid armour and use energy weapons to attack the knights. Their conventional weapons are thwarted and even the magic of The Faerie Knight is absorbed by the armour. The magical weapons, Clarent, of Prince Mordred, and Arondight, of Sir Lancelot are much more affective. Gamma Pans interrogated one of the captives and discovered, through a marking on the man's palm, that they are G-Kryptons who are meant to be allied with the X-Kryptons. Because of this betrayal, the X-Kryptons would declare war[Pan 2].
