We open on Earth from orbit. Suddenly a UFO zooms towards Earth.
We see people preparing for some celebration. Drones are flying over head. On the screens on their sides a CG newscaster is talking about the end of World War 3 having taken place 5 years ago in 2260(the timeframe for this series is the 23rd century). The screens show the US, European and Japanese leaders shaking hands. The announcer then talks about how tonight is the anniversery of the peace treaty being signed, and how the nations of the world celebrate World Peace Day. The announcer then urges everyone to celebrate peace, and celebrate happiness on Earth(there are subliminal messages saying PEACE and HAPPINESS flashing very quickly during this).
The UFO zooms through the atmosphere. It seems to have lost control. It zooms towards the city of Sendai. It crashes in a forested area about an hours walk from the city. The hatch pops off, and a skinny and frail looking man with three eyes and blue skin crawls out, a big gash across his chest having ripped open his green flight suit. He bleeds green blood. He has a large utility belt on. He weakly stands. He takes a device that looks like an orange egg from his belt and touches it. A small panel opens and lights up. He speaks an alien language. He then looks around, and weakly starts walking away, leaving a partial blood trail.
We are now in Sendai. It is early evening. Jin and Elea are walking about, watching people celebrating World Peace Day. Jin is bemused. He says that he doesn't at all remember this. Elea says that it's not that big a deal. He thinks it is, and asks if she isn't happy for peace.
She replies that she is... But not at the cost of freedom. He looks at her, perplexed, and asks what she means. She turns away, and watches some drunk kids starting to fight each other. She points and says, "Look. Just because the world isn't at war doesn't mean humanity won't find some excuse to fight one another, even at the micro level."
He watches the kids, then turns to her. They stare at each other for a second, then she turns away. She apologizes for being so dark. The stress of their situation is getting to her. Jin notices her hands are slightly shaking. Without thinking, he grabs her hand. Again they stare at each other.
Suddenly, Jin's armband rings. The moment breaks, and Jin answers the call. It is S. She tells him that she just recieved information from DEUS that military space monitoring detected a spacecraft a half hour ago that ignored all hails and ended up appearing to have lost control and crashing about an hour from their current location. She was told to ask Jin and K to investigate.
Jin is somewhat irritated, and asks if she couldn't go instead. S says that she understands that he and Elea were enjoying the evening, but orders are orders. He sighs and says ok. He ends the call. Elea says that soon this will be over. Jin says he hopes. Unbeknownest to them, they are being watched via a drone passing overhead.
Later, K and Jin arrive at the crash site. As they walk to the site k asks if Jin got lucky. Jin rolls his eyes and asks how his evening with his princess went. K snarks, "If by princess, you mean Jack Daniels and Hentai, then I had a blast. S kept to herself and watched anime. Only time she even acknowledged me was to yell at me for leaving the toilet seat up." Jin.laughs and says K is quite the Romeo. K sarcastically chuckles.
Jin notices the crash site. They run to it. The ship is almost totally destroyed. As they inspect the debris, K remarks that the ship is too damaged. There couldn't have been a survivor. Jin notices the blood trail leading from the ship. He replies that something survived. After K uses a small device to collect a sample of the blood they follow the trail.
The trail peters out 100 yards from the ship. Jin asks what they should do. K says that since they have brought the equipment from the last safehouse with them Elea should probably confirm if the blood is actually alien. Jin agrees.
A couple hours later, at the hotel suite they are using, Jin and K are waiting in the dining area. Elea and S walk in. Elea says she has confirmed the blood is alien in origin. And it matches blood from aliens from the star system Alpha Centauri. As Elea speaks, S pulls another box of chocolate from her shirt pocket and pops a piece into her mouth.
K asks how she knows that. S tells him that there are about 20 refugees from the fifth planet of that system living on Earth. Their biology is on file with DEUS and the UN. They obtained full citizenahip two year ago. Jin asks why they are refugees. S says that the full details are top secret, but what she does know is that they escaped from a war with another race. Jin asks if they were conquered by the race they were fighting.
S reiterates that she doesn't have clearance to have that information, but she suspects that to be possible. She says that its possible that the crash survivor is a new refugee, but DEUS is concerned about both the way the ship lost control and crashed and the fact that the pilot ignored all hails.
S says that Jin and K are to attempt to track down any of the known refugees in Sendai and question them to see if they have any information, since it is highly likely one of them at least may have had communication with the pilot. K asks how they will know who to look for. S says they are physically frail, and they are pretty weak compared to humans. Elea says that she decided to sneak a peek at some documents about them, and she found out that they all look alike. Their females look like males, and they all look like the same person.
Jin say, "So they're clones or something?" Elea says she doesn't think so. She thinks that their species somehow naturally makes each sex have the same physical appearance. K scoffs. Jin agrees that it is hard to believe that could happen without some manipulation. Elea says regardless its what is on the records. S says that they are to start the hunt in the morning. K asks what she is going to do. S pops another piece of chocolate into her mouth and replies, "That is my business, Mr Monkey." She smirks as she says that and walks to her room. Jin looks at K and chuckles as K glowers. Elea giggles.
The next morning, after receiving a list of the known refugees in Sendai, Jin and K start their hunt for them. They begin by going to a small convienence store run by one Mr. Takei. His stockboy/janitor is a Mr Sakuia, who is the refugee. Sakuia is not at the store when they arrive. Jin and K realize that Takei has no knowledge of his employee's origins, so they make up a story about having been sent by a lawyer to talk to him about a relative. Takei says Sakuia should be back soon, so they wait.
Not long after, Sakuia arrives, almost wrecking his bicycle. He falls off and almost cracks his head off the pavement. After asking his boss to help him bring in the supplies, and the boss good naturedly teasing Sakuia for his weakness, he is introduced to Jin and K. Once out of earshot of his boss, Jin asks if he is aware of the other refugees. Sakuia stares at them.
A short distance away, in a public park, Jin and K talk with Sakuia. He tells them briefly about how his race were pacifists for centuries, and kept to themselves. Therefore they were left alone. Feeling lonely, they decided to genetically engineer a new species, which they dubbed the Va-Do, which in their language means New People. He tells them that the Va-Do at first were treated as equals, but that they eventually became slaves to his race. The Va-Do rebelled, and after a brief war won their independence.
They moved to the next furthest out planet in their solar system. For about two hundred years there was no contact, then 150 years ago they suddenly appeared in his planet's sky with warships, declaring his race would be the slaves now. The time, his race despite their weakness chose to fight. They had started work on a stellar manipulator, and its special control mechinism, the Ebolium.
As the war started, and especially as casualties on both sides mounted it was decided to make the manipulator and the Ebolium into weapons. They realized the Ebolium could generate a radiation that was one of the only known thing that could hurt the nigh invincible Va-Do. But the realization came too late, as by that time the Va-Do killed or enslaved more than 1/3 the population. Then the Va-Do stole the Ebolium.
Upon discovering that the device had so many defensive capacities built in that they couldn't safely destroy it without killing many Va-Do in the process, the Va-Do sent it into deep space, hoping to give themselves time to find a way to use it. They'd learned enough to create their own stellar manipulator, and planned to use it to destroy Sakuia's world.
So his race started sending male members to any planets the Ebolium reasonably could have ended up on, including Earth. Earth was unique in that Humans, while far more robust than his race, are physically virtually identical, so the search was much easier as with a few genetic modifications his race can hide their alien features easily.
As he tells them all this, some children playing kickball kick their ball in their direction. Sakuia stops it with his foot, and at the urging of the kids kicks it back at them. He almost falls and cries out as he hurts his ankle slightly. K keeps him from falling over.
"I'm alright." He sheepishly chuckles. "Your gravity is mainly why we end up so accident prone." He tells them that the ten males of his race on Earth never found any evidence the Ebolium was on Earth, and having decided that the Earth was such a beautiful world despite its various problems to stay. Jin tells him about the crash the night before. Sakuia tells them that he suspects it could be one of his race, but the crash has him worried. Jin asks why that might be. Sakuia looks at them very seriously. "Because I think it means the Va-Do may have followed the pilot to Earth. And even ONE Va-Do could cause you humans ALOT of problems." Jin and K look at each other.
Later, Jin and K drop Sakuia off at his job. He vigorusly waves at them as K drives off. After they are down the street aways, his cheery smile changes to a worried frown, and his third eye opens and blinks. His boss shouts at him from inside the shop, and as he turns his third eye quickly closes again and he adopts his usual cheery oersona.
A montage of Jin and K independantly speaking to four other refugees. They are surprised that as Elea stated they are physically identical, though some have grown out their hair and facial hair to look different. One of particualr interest is an assistant cook at a resteraunt, named Fumio, who despite being the biggest klutz of them all, almost burning down the place in his enthusiasm to greet Jin, is also the only one that seems to be lying when saying he didn't have any contact with any new arrivals. Jin can't put his finger on it, but his new heightened awareness due to his merger with Seven has him convinced the manis not telling the truth.
Jin and K meet near the hotel they are staying at to discuss the day's events. Jin tells K about his suspicions regarding the cook, who calls himself Hiyada. K says that he simply can't believe they are all lying. Jin says that is possible, though he doubts it. K asks if he isn't being too suspicious. He says that his powers and the mystery of who or what he may now be could be clouding his judgement. He says, "Is it that hard to believe aliens could see Earth as something other than a world to conquer?" As K speaks, Jin senses they are being watched. He spots a businessman in a dark suit a few yards away who hurriedly turns away and walks away quickly. Jin watches him, worry on his face.
Later that evening, near the crash site, there is a glow in the sky, and a ship zooms in and slows to a hover where the ship crashed. A beam of light emenates from the ship, lights up an area on the ground. A form coaleses in the beam. It is a seven foot tall creature, a hulking thing that has a body built like a human bodybuolder, but with what appears to be an almost insect like exoskeleton. Red mjscle tissue can be seen between the joi ts of its body. It has long claws on its hands and feet, a short neck and an elongated head. It has two thick stalks to each side of the head where its eyes are. There are long curved horns set just below the eye stalks. It is wearing a belt similar to the alien from earlier and has an energy weapon strapped to its left arm. It stalks over to where the wreckage was(having been taken away by authorities), and bends down. It sniffs the dirt. Then gets up, growls menacingly, then heads off in the direction of the blood trail Jin and K attempted to follow the night before.
Sakuia is working at the convience store, and knocks over a potato chip display. The owner helps him reset it, while jokingly chastizing him, saying he needs to stop working his overnight job. Sakuia tells him as long as he can't afford to pay him more, he has to make more money somehow. Affording a decent living can be hard today(he almost says on Earth but catches himself). The owner tells him that he is going home, and not to forget to turn on the security system once he himself leaves. Sakuia eagerly nods, and says he'll be just a few minutes more. The owner leaves.
As Sakuia finishes up his cleaning, he prepares to activate the security system before leaving. Unbeknownest to him, the shop's main door unlocks itself, and slowly opens. The door creaks the slightest bit when opening, catching Sakuia's attention. He looks at the door and sees it is open. He says his boss's name, to no reply. He wonders if maybe the owner simply forgot to lock it.
As he walks over to the door, he notices movement to his side. He stops and a look of terror is on his face as a large clawed hand grabs him by the throat, lifting him up off the ground. The Va-Do pulls him up to its face, and it's vertically opening mouth in the center of its head opens, as it speaks in a deep and gutteral voice, saying in an alien language, "Where... Is... The Ebolium?" Sakuia is terrified, and tries to speak. The creature relaxes his grip slightly. Sakuia gasps out that he doesn't know. The Va-Do says that one of them came to this world with its location, and they all communicate with their homeworld. He KNOWS Sakuia knows where it is. More terrified than ever, Sakuia begs for his life, pleading that he doesn't talk to his brethren. He has adapted to Earth. The Va-Do growls, and starts choking Sakuia. He ends up breaking Sakuia's neck, and tosses the body to the ground, the body knocks over a heavy magazine rack due to the force with which the Va-Do threw it. We hear him stomp off.
Not long after, police have the area cordoned off as a small crowd of onlookers are curiously watching. The owner and his wife are sitting on the sidewalk sobbing over their friend. Jin, K, and S flash their armbands to the police, who let them into the shop.
Inside, the trio look at Sakuia's body. S quietly tells them that due to Sakuia's clumsiness, DEUS asked the police to record this as an accidental death so they can keep the real cause of death out of the media for now. K nods, saying its a wise move. Jin is crouched, looking at the body. K sadly states that Sakuia seemed loke a nice person and didn't deserve what happened. Jin tries to be clinical, but S and K can tell he is upset by Sakuia's murder as he says, "Look at how deep the flesh is compressed around his throat! My God, this thing must be at least as strong as I am..." He hesitatingly looks around as he says this to make sure nobody outside of them hear him. S says if what Sakuia had told them in the morning was true, his other form may be the only chance they have against it. K worries that even the Red Giant may not be enough. Jin turns to K and tells him that he is gonna call his other form by the name he keeps hearing in his dreams... Ultraseven. S thinks for a second and says she likes it. Odd, but has a ring to it. K thinks it sounds like something from an old comic. S's armband rings and she answers the call. It is the DEUS commander telling them that an unknown species of alien was reported near the resteraunt that Fumio works at. S says that must be the same creature that murdered Sakuia. Jin says they need to get there.
At the resteraunt the Va-Do breaks down the doors easily. The head chef and the manager try to attack it but it punches the chef through a wall, and blasts the manager with its weapon, vaporizing him. Fumio tries to keep the manager's wife out of harm's way, but the Va-Do grabs him, demanding the location of the Ebolium.
All pretense of klutziness gone, Fumio defiantly tells the Va-Do he will gladly take that to his grave. The Va-Do throws him against some tables. He stomps over and picks Fumio up again. The manager's wife rushes at the Va-Do and beats him about the head with a large cooking pot.
The Va-Do laughs and punches her, killing her instantly. Fumio shouts in both anguish and fury but still refuses to tell the Va-Do what he wants. The Va-Do throws him to the ground, and we see him stomp down.
As K's car pulls up, the Va-Do walks out. They jump out, K and S with guns drawn. Jin puts on the Ultra Eye, and turns into Ultraseven. He rushes the Va-Do, and they punch and kick each other. Seven kicks it against the doorway, when it reveals a super speed, zooming behind Seven, kicking his legs out from under him and throwing him 20 or more feet.
Seven shouts in surprise and pain as he hits the ground. S and K rush at the Va-Do. S almost gets her head ripped off, just dodging a giant bearswat from the Va-Do. K fares slightly better, at least getting a sidekick in before being tossed to the ground. Seven suddenly reveals he too has superspeed, zooming at the Va-Do, and double punching it in the spine with full power. The creature cries out in pain but doesn't go down. It back hands Seven and zooms off before they can see where it went.
The three look around, confused. Seven says that the Va-Do has skin like titanium. K asks if S is alright. She gets up and says she is fine. K asks Seven if he is alright, and Seven says his side hurts but he is fine.
He is about to change back when they hear someone say, "So the mysterious Red Giant is helping DEUS? Interesting. Wish you could have gotten here sooner. My fellow refugee might have survived, along with those poor innocents." They turn and see a man in shadow standing next to a car. Seven asks who he is. The man step into the light, revealing he is yet another refugee. "I am the one both you people and our common enemy are looking for. I am the pilot who crashed." He says that he had planned to pick up Fumio so they could leave the city to find somewhere to research the exact location of the Ebolium.
K states that it is on Earth then. The man, who calls himself Touikio, says yes. He is fairly certain based on data recently collected by other refugees that it may even be in this city. He had intended to arrive in secret but his ship was shot down by a Va-Do ship. Seven asks if there are more. Touikio says they usually send just one soldier for missions like this, as one is usually all they need. Seven, K and S look at each other.
S asks if he has any idea how the Ebolium wound up on Earth. He tells them that from what his people had discovered it had apparently been lodged onto a meteor or comet and had survived Earthfall approximately 70 years ago in the area called Peru. The other refugees then tracked it to some research facilites in what they call Europe 40 years ago, but the trail petered out there.
Then not long before he came to Earth it was discovered that the energy signature of the device had been picked up in this region of Japan, but while they think it is in Sendai they aren't positive. They need to obtain the Ebolium as soon as possible. Seven grimly states that the Va-Do must be on the verge of taking over. Touikio says not just conquer, but genocide.
S asks what the device looks like. K asks what she is on about. She says that she remembers something about an astor research facility in Sendai that had been working on analyzing some meteorites, and she thinks one may have been from Peru. Touikio says it is made of a green metal, and has glowing green ports. It would be inactive at this time, but it would be obvious that it was not natural. Seven turns back into Jin as S calls up some files on her armband. She finds a file with a photo of a meteorite chunk that is partially broken away, with a green metal peeking out.
Tuoikio excoted says that just may be it. S says its at the local astro research facility. Jin says he is gonna ask Elea to join them, as she could help them get in to get to it since she is a scientist. S agrees. As they go to K's car, Jin makes the call to a worried Elea, who readily agrees to join them.
A short time later, K and company are piling out of his car. Elea says she contacted the head of the lab, who was the one who found out the meteorite was of alien construction. Toukio says that he needs to active the device. They rush to the entrance. Off to the side of the building the Va-Do steps out and chuckles.
They meet the head of the lab, who agrees to show them the meteorite. As the begin to head to the storage area, the wall at the opposite end of the main hallway explodes inwards, and the Va-Do steps through. He looks at them for a second, and S shouts for them to run. Jin stays. Elea and K shout at him to follow, but he tells them he has a score to settle. The Va-Do laughs and says, "I have a score to settle with you too, Red Giant. You are the first being to ever hurt me." Jin puts on the Ultra Eye as he says, "The name..." He turns into Ultraseven. "Is Ultraseven."
The rest of the gang race towards the storage area. Touikio tells them that unless they activate the Ebolium their friend will likely get killed, even with his powers. Elea states that he will prevail. S and K look at each other, not nearly as confident.
As Seven and the Va-Do face each other, the Va-Do says that he will rip him apart and pick the flesh from him. Seven just glares at him. They charge at each other. He uppercuts the Va-Do, who bearswats Seven in the chest. Seven is knocked back a foot, but grabs the Va-Do by the head after blocking another punch, and knees it repeatedly in the head. The Va-Do kicks him in the stomach, and charges him. Seven grabs him by his horns and jumps up, spinning himself and the Va-Do in midair. The Va-do lands facefirst, as Seven lands in a crouch.
The gang arrive at the storage area, and Kuoikio pulls out the egg like device. He uses it to find the exact cabinet the Ebolium is in. They tale the box out, and unlock it. Touikio stares at it. He says since the controls are still in the meteorite he will try the backup voice activation. He starts chanting a phrase in his own language. The device slowly starts to glow.
Seven jumps to his feet as does the Va-Do. The Va-Do fires his laser at Seven, bit he backflips out of the way. Seven launches the Blade Slugger, but it simply bounces off the creature. The Va-do laughs as Seven catches the Slugger. They then leap at each other, punching and kickin each other. Seven manages to gain the upper hand and spinkicks the Va-do through the main doors. It careens out into the parking lot.
Touikio continues to chant. The device glows brighter and brighter. Finally the meteorite crumbles away, revealing a quasi spherical green device. Alien runes are stamped on certain areas, and there are what appear to be ports to connect it to another device. Touikio picks it up, suddenly deadly serious. He turns to the others, and grimly says, "Let's help your friend."
Seven walks towards the shattered remains of the main doors. Suddenly the Va-Do flies back through, and grabs Seven by the throat with both hands. The creature is trying like hell to snap Seven's neck, but fortunately his armored skin and cyber armor are makong it difficult. Seven repeatedly beats on the Va-Do's forearms, trying to break them, but just as with the Va-Do its armored exoskeleton makes it difficult for him. The creature's head splits down to the neck, and a long tube like tounge with an inner mouth ringed with writhing teeth latches onto Seven's head. The teeth start to slowly bite into the metal of his head and he shouts in agony.
Suddenly there is a green glow from behind. We see Touikio and the others standing there. He is holding the Eboliumand it is pumping energy into his outstretched right arm. A blast of energy shoots into the Va-Do's side, blowing away part of its armored skin. It drops Seven and screams in pain. Seven gets to his feet, punches it two times in the open wound, then kicks it to the ground. He then fires the Wide shot, which incinerates it. He turns to the others, nodding at Toukio. "Thank you. I thought I was finished." Sirens are heard. K says, "Cavalry. Better get outta here, Ultraseven." Even though his armored head shows no emotion they can detect. Seven is pleased. He nods again, and flies off.
That morning, Jin, K, S and Elea are with Touikio and the remaining refugees near the ocean. Touikio thanks them. He tells them they have saved his world. S smiles and tells them they were more than happy to help. Elea asks what they plan to do one the war is over. Touikio says that they will have to leave that up to their leaders, but hopefully the Va-Do will be exterminated. Jin looks at him and asks if he heard him right. Touikio ignores his question and thanks him personally. Jin realizes he won't get an answer and simply tells him he was glad to help. Touikio pushes a button on his belt and a ship rises from the water. It hovers about 50 feet above them. A beam of light encompasses the refugees, and beams them aboard the ship, which then zooms away.
A couple days later, the group have hit the road again. As they get onto the highway, S takes out a tablet like device and puts on a news program. There are various news reports, including mentions of Jin's fights with the Va-Do. K tells him he is doing a LOUSY job of keeping low profile. Jin looks at him annoyed. K says he is just joking.
Then a breaking news report. The CG announcer states that astronomers have detected two huge explosions in the Alpha Centauri star system. It is believed to be either a double supernova or a planetary collision. The group are silent. Elea sadly states the obvious: the Ebolium likely destroyed both planets. Jin says that even if that had not happened, the Va-Do at least would have been eradicated. The refugees and their race had been pushed against the same wall the Va-Do had been pushed against. Both races ultimately had become determined to destroy the other.
Elea quietly says that her statement to him the night this started can now apply to aliens as well as people. K says that that the entire universe seems to be filled with idiots. The others agree and they leave the city.
