Zetton Zetton

The final episode of the series introduces Ultraman and the SSSP's most powerful foe, Zetton. It beggins with a fleet of flying saucers heading towards Earth. Science Special Search Party Paris Headquarters, New York, London, Moscow and Japanse branches are all alerted by satellites in orbit around the Earth. The alien vessels will arive at 0024 Greenwhich Mean Time or 09:24 Japan time., thats in 40 minutes. Paris orders all branches to be on alert but not to attack unprovoked. Captain Muramatsu orders Fuji to alert the Air Self-Defense Force to be on highalert. He tells Arashi to notify the police to also go on high alert. Dr. Iwamoto assumes the flying saucers will target "the two superpowers" and he says flying saucers have been scouting the Earth since 1930. Since he says "the enemy has been waiting 40 years" to invade, that would place the year as 1970 (so three years after the episode originally aired). The ships prove their intent his hostile by destroying any communications sattelites they encounter. The first shiips to enter orbit are detected 500 kms from Hawaii. The next report is they are heading for Japan, not the USA or Russia. Japense Air Defense manage to shoot down a few saucers before being wiped out. Paris HQ reports that the saucers appear to be targeting SSSP Japan and Ultraman, before targeting the rest of the planet.. Paris wishes Japan "good luck". Captain Muramatsu orders his troops to "move out". Meaning, Arashi, Hayata, Ide go on the offensive with him while Fuji and Dr. Iwamoto remain at HQ. Dr. Iwamoto remembers there is a new weapon and tries to take it to the others, but he is attacked. The SSSP HQ has been infiltrated. The three Jet VOTL's had left anyway. While the men of the SSSP are taking out the flying saucers something is impersonating Dr. Iwamoto, Fuji is in grave danger. The imposter strangles Fuji and destroys the communications panel with an energy weapon. The largest of the alien ships breaks formation and manages to allude Hayata and Cap. While Arashi and Ide succeed in finishing off the smaller ships.
