Dialogue[edit]

Mas Selina Salno, Princess of Sergina:  Why does no one pay heed to my warning?  The entire human race will perish from the Earth.  When the monster Ghidorah passes, only flaming ruins are left.
Detective Shindo:  Ghidorah?
Mas Selina Salno, Princess of SerginaCenturies ago, the monster appeared in the skies of Mars.  Within a month, the culture of Mars had been wiped out completely.  The civilization on my planet had reached a stage of development which you people will not achieve for a long time.  Centuries, at least.  Today, because of the space monster, it is a dead world.  Dead and uninhabited.
Dr. Tsukamoto:  It would be a bad situation if that creature came here to Earth.
Mas Selina Salno, Princess of Sergina:  It's worse, because he's arrived.
