Three members of the Ultra Garrison are sent to a secret meeting with Commander Takenaka aboard the Max, one of the elite vessels in the Ultra Guard. This secret mission is to learn of the origin of several oceanic disappearances. Meanwhile, Moroboshi's Ultra Eye is stolen after he stops to help a woman on the side of an empty highway. Meanwhile at sea, the Max is lifted out of the ocean and carried into space by a red cloud. Dan and Capt. Kiriyama search miles of ocean while Furuhashi heads for space in the Ultra Hawk #2 for any signs of The Max. He finds the enormous vessel floating in space as well as evil aliens known as the Godorians who plan to take over the Earth.
