When the Ultra Star Shines

When the Ultra Star Shines  (ウルトラの星光る時, Urutoranohoshi Hikaru Toki, When the Ultra Star Shines ) is the thirty-eighth episode of Return of Ultraman. It marks the return of the Original Ultraman with Susumu Kurobe respiring his role as the Original Ultraman's Human Host, Shin Hayata since the the finale of the original series and the return of Ultraseven since his return in episode 18 of the Return of Ultraman, but this time with Kohji Moritsugu respiring his role as the human form of Ultraseven, Dan Moroboshi.


Lost in the battle after his solar energy is completely exhausted on Earth, the unconscious Ultraman (Jack) was captured and taken to Planet Nackle to be executed. Meanwhile on Earth, MAT are under Alien Nackle's control all except for Oka. What will become of them, and the Earth? Can the original Ultraman (Shin Hayata of the Science Patrol) and Ultraseven (Dan Moroboshi of the UG) rescue New Ultraman just in time to restore his power, and send him back to Earth for a rematch with Alien Nackle and Black King?


Alien Nackle attacked MAT Station V1 with his spaceships. With Saturn Z in hand, he declared attack on Earth and requested unconditional surrender from humans. On the other hand, Ultraman was convoyed to Planet Nackle for execution. The two who came to save Ultraman were Hayata and Dan Moroboshi! With his power regained, Ultraman went back to Earth for a rematch before Christmas!
