Plot

Jiro found a locked box at his friend Yoshiko's house and brought it back to his place without permission. Furthermore, Go took it with him during a check on Space Station No. 5, where he eventually forgot about the box and left it. When Hideki came back to the MAT base, he learns that no signal is coming from the space station! Eventually, the space station fell down to Tokyo and MAT learns that monster Yadokarin has been using it as a shelter!
