Ultra Operation No.1 (ウルトラ作戦第一号 Urutora Sakusen Daiichigō?) is the first episode of Ultraman

PlotEdit

While patrolling the skies on the night shift, Shin Hayata reports back to home base he has seen a U.F.O. An enormous red orb is chasing a blue orb across the night sky. As fate would have it, Hayata's ship accidentally collides with the red object just as the blue U.F.O. descends into a nearby lake. Hayata is saved by the strange alien inhabiting the red glowing vessel. From the Nebula M-78, the benevolent being explains it was pursuing the monstrous pilot of the blue ship, Bemular, after it escaped being escorted to the Space Graveyard. Merging with Hayata and giving him the Beta Capsule, the Scientific Special Search Party (SSSP) member secretly becomes Ultraman whenever monsters or aliens threaten the Earth.

QuotesEdit

"Who's there? Who are you?"

"I am a alien of Nebula M78."

"An inhabitant of Nebula M78?"

"That's right, I came from far away space. I was transporting Bemular to his grave in space, but he escaped and I have followed him to Earth."

"Bemlar?"

"He is a space monster that can only bring forth chaos and destruction like a devil. I apologize for what I did to you, officer Hayata, for this reason I will give my life to you."

"Your life? What will happen to you then?"

"We will become one in body and soul, and fight for the peace of the Earth."

"Wait a second. You've been calling him "he", like a friend, but what's his name?"

"He doesn't have a name."

"Don't joke, Everyone has a name."

"Then let's see-- How about Ultraman?"

"Ultraman?"

"Right, Ultraman. What do you think?"

"Well-- That's "ultra" good!"
