Outside the Land of Light's atmosphere, the fierce battle begins with Tregear dodging the warriors' attacks, Ginga and Victory punch Tregear but he landed on a moon-like meteorite. New Generation Heroes landed on it while Ginga tells Tregear his ambitions ends here, he declared that disappeared but mines, which is a trap, explode. Taro comes to Tregear, "One who has fallen into darkness must not be allowed near the Land of Light." Taro said, but they clash into battle. The Tri-Squad come to heroes, but this time, they'll stop Tregear, the sinister foe. "This'll be an opportunity to show off our ultra team-work." Taiga exclaimed. Heroes gave accessories to Tri-Squad before they left. As Tregear summons the black lightning, Tri-Squad dodge the attack behind Taro, who told that his three are no match for his foe. Fuma slashes Tregear using a hand, Titas energy punches the foe, and Taiga performs Strium Blaster, ultimately dodged by the black hero. Tregear performs Trera Ardiga to defeat Titas and Fuma, turned into particles, Taiga dashes to the foe but attacked by Tregear using Trera Cheir Phos, turned into red particles, then disappeared into space. Taro watches Taiga's death but soon, he performs Ultra Dynamite also Tregear does the same said attack, ramming through each other before the big explosion occurs.
On Earth, twelve years later, the young man became the rookie member, Hiroyuki Kudo, drives his car alongside his brother, Homare Soya, and Alien Rivers Kawazu. Suddenly, the civilians shoot the dark blue fireballs to Hiroyuki's car but dodged. Meanwhile, in the headquarter, EGIS, Kana Sasaki, president of EGIS, watches the footage while Homare calls her, Pirika Asahikawa, Hiroyuki's friend, does. On Earth secretly inhabited by extraterrestrials, Hiroyuki brakes his car as civilians accidentally shoot to each other, revealing Cicada Human and Alien Ckalutch. As Kawazu left, Hiroyuki told that Homare's not our problem after that as Hiroyuki runs away. He saw Kawazu, Alien Magma Maguma appeared before doing a battle against Hiroyuki. As a vent opens, revealing baby Zandrias, Maguma steals the baby kaiju before he disappears. Pirika saw Maguma's target, so that he prepares to defeat the alien. After he electrocutes the civilian, Kawazu told Hiroyuki that Kawazu's not even an Earthling. As they run to Maguma, holding baby Zandrias, "It's showtime!" he shouted, the bioweapon kaiju, Zegun, burrowed up the ground.
The people chased by Zegun, crashing the building, while the human host of Tregear, Kirisaki, watches. At the construction site, Maguma tries to cry baby Zandrias out, Suddenly, its young mother, performing Young Mother Beam to defeat and kicking Zegun, came.

Remembering the Future - Part 1 (未来の思い出す 前編 Mirai no Omoide Zenpen)
Taiga goes somewhere to shout his name in frustration, which irritates his friend Filis, a Blue Tribe Ultra who is slightly older than he is.
He then explains that on the Land of Light, the Silver and Red Tribes are much more suitable for battle and many of them join the Inter Galactic Defense Force, while Blue Tribe Ultras such as Filis are more clear-headed and many of them work as scientists in the Space Science and Technology Bureau, which has work in many areas such as backline support for the Inter Galactic Defense Force, creating new technologies, and managing old relics, which is what Filis does.
Taiga then talks about his father, Taro and explains that he is the biggest reason for his unhappiness, since everyone only sees him as Taro's son. He confides in Filis, who is apparently the only other person who sees Taiga for who he is.
Taiga then asks Filis about a capsule he is carrying. In it is a Triger Shot, which Filis says may be useful to Taiga, but he doesn't understand because it is so small. Filis then talks to him about a certain Ultraman who is Taiga's senior, and Taro's former pupil.
