To conquer the Earth, an alien from Planet Nackle studies Ultraman's abilities, and tries to find a weakness of him all to defeat him for good.


Disguising himself as a staff of the Space Radio Wave Laboratory, Alien Nackle wanted to get Ultraman out of his way of Earth's invasion. First, he revived monsters Seagorath and Bemstar to analyze Ultraman's specs and powers, then he robbed MAT's newly invented gunpowder Saturn Z. Last of all, in order to disrupt Go's mind, he started a very dirty plan...
