Thirteen thousand years ago, the Alien Orion race invaded Earth when humanity at the time was still a primitive race, but after a great flood on Earth they were forced into a deep slumber in their pyramid. Due to this humanity regained control of their planet once more.
In the present day they awakened and began spreading toxic gases to make Earth suitable for their kind, re-emerging their pyramid base and sent one of their kind, Michiru (ミチルSphinx. While Sphinx was sent on a rampage, the Orions had Minami crucified on the top of their pyramid to ensure that they would stop the V9 from attacking them. Fortunately, Hokuto piloted a TAC jet and reunite with the imprisoned Minami to summon Ultraman Ace. Michiru later played her flute to distract Sphinx but the Orions killed her and brought Sphinx back to its senses. After Ace killed Sphinx, he lifted the Orions' pyramid and destroyed it with Metalium Beam, killing them as well. Ace brought Michiru's corpse and place it nearby the Orion Constellation, as it become a new star.) to stop TAC from interfering.
