The Phantom Shooting Star (幻の遊星 Maboroshi no Yūsei) is the eleventh episode of Ultraman Dyna.
Seiji Miyata showcases footage relayed by Neptune observation satellite Next to Super GUTS that shows a luscious green forest. The footage was taken on the newly discovered Planet Meranie - a comet that had wandered into the Solar System one month prior. Super GUTS is ordered to investigate this strange occurrence. Officers Asuka, Ryo, Kariya, Nakajima and Kohda depart on the GUTS Eagle.
While Kohda stays behind in the Eagle to act as commander of the expedition; Asuka and Nakajima, and Ryo and Kariya begin exploration in pairs. Strangely enough, oxygen concentration and gravity on Meranie are identical to that on Earth. As the officers wander the comet, they ponder as to why such a beautiful forest could appear on a rogue shooting star. Meanwhile, Kohda is suddenly cut off from headquarters. Mai suggests that the signal was being jammed, and that Meranie was the likely cause.
Asuka and Nakajima spot an unidentified lifeform in the wilderness and begin tailing it - much to Nakajima's dismay. Meanwhile, Ryo and Kariya collect samples; however, the ones they collected suddenly vanish from their hands. Eventually, Asuka and Nakajima enter a cave and find a man-made ruin, along with a pile of corpses. Just then, the creature from before appears. After noticing that it was hurt, Asuka treats it's wounds. The creature then leads the pair to a room, where they finally learn the truth. The forest was actually a hologram that had been made to seem ultra-realistic by hallucinogenic gas. The beautiful appearance of the forest was used to lure aliens to it before being killed by the biological kaiju on the comet. The creature reveals to Asuka that it's owners were a victim of this trap.
At that moment, the kaiju Mons-Ahgar mobilises and the illusion of the forest vanishes and reveals a rocky wasteland. In the ensuing breakdown of the cave, Asuka and Nakajima get split up. The former being trapped under some rocks while the latter is forced to return to the Eagle without his companion. To make matters worse, Asuka had been separated from his Lieflasher. Fortunately, Hanejiro managed to move the device towards him, allowing him to transform into Ultraman Dyna. Though Dyna managed to hold his own initially, he is eventually overwhelmed by the kaiju. But after Hanejiro shows the Ultra Mons-Ahgar's weak point, he transforms into Strong Type and kills Ahgar in one blow. After the defeat of Ahgar, comet Meranie begins to crumble and Super GUTS are forced to leave thinking they had left Asuka behind. However much to their delight, Asuka reveals himself to be in the cockpit of Alpha along with the little creature from before. He christens it: Hanejiro.
