Prophecy" (Airdate: 09-14-02)
It is the year 2049. The world has been at peace for decades but not for
much longer. A meteor containing a space capsule crashes to Earth, suspiciously
close to The Citagon, headquarters of the Terrestrial Peacekeeping Commission
(TPC). Inside the space capsule is a holographic message intended for
the members of GUTS (the Global Unlimited Task Squad), TPC’s investigative
agency and special combat squad. The message warns that monstrous creatures
will soon destroy the planet. GUTS is told that their only hope is to
locate the Pyramid of Light in the ancient land of Tiga. Inside the Pyramid
they will find the statue of an ancient warrior, who protected mankind
30 million years ago. They’re told that one person, and one person only,
has the power to awaken this giant so that it can resume its role as protector
of the planet. Just as the hologram is about to reveal that person’s identity,
there’s a malfunction with the space capsule and the holographic image
disintegrates. Now time is running out because two monsters, Melba and
Golza, have been sighted and they’re headed for Tiga. The GUTS team gets
to the Pyramid ahead of the monsters but they’re confused about which
one of the three statues inside is the true ancient warrior. They also
don’t know how they would go about reviving it. The monsters arrive and
begin to destroy the Pyramid, along with the statues of the three ancient
warriors. The GUTS team watches helplessly from their Gutswing jets overhead
but Daigo, one of the GUTS fighter pilots, decides to take matters into
his own hands. Using laser beam artillery on Gutswing 1, he attacks the
Golza & Melba. His lasers are no match for these monsters, who have
already completely destroyed the Pyramid of Light and two of the three
warrior statues inside. Suddenly Daigo’s jet is hit and he loses control.
At the brink of disaster, just as his jet is about to crash to the ground,
Daigo is transformed into light and merges with the one remaining giant
warrior statue. It is at this sudden and secret moment that Ultraman Tiga
is born. Incredibly it is Daigo who, according to the hologram, was that
one and only person able to revive the ancient warrior. Ultraman Tiga
battles Golza and Melba and defeats them both. Soon after, Daigo emerges
unscathed from the GUTS Wing crash site but his colleagues at GUTS have
no idea that their friend is Ultraman Tiga. World peace has been restored...
