"A Tough New Enemy! Emperor of the Universe, Freeza" (あらたな強敵!宇宙の帝王フリーザ, Arata na Kyōteki! Uchū no Teiō Furīza; FUNimation "Brood of Evil") is the forty-fourth episode of the Dragon Ball Z anime.


The two "Nameccians" reveal that they have been stuck on this planet since their ship broke down, and they have been planning to steal Bulma's ship. They read their minds after her ship crashed, and so they projected images of Nameccians over their true forms. Gohan, Bulma and Kuririn, however, are able to escape the clutches of the two aliens, and continue their trip to Namek. After a long journey, Gohan and the others celebrate their arrival on Namek, but their party is cut short by the arrival of Vegeta. However, he's not even their worst problem, because Freeza is also on Namek.
