Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

MOTHER (MOTHER?, Mazā) is a time-traveling spacecraft utilized by the Futurians which first appeared in the 1991 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.


When an unidentified craft arrived in the skies of Japan in 1991, it gave the country cause for concern. The craft landed, and from it came a group of Futurians, people from the year 2204. They arrived to submit a grave warning to Japan about a dreadful future. They foretold of a time when Godzilla would destroy a portion of the nation's nuclear reactors, effectively releasing enough pollution to make Japan an uninhabitable graveyard.

Using advanced technology aboard KIDS (A smaller time-ship that MOTHER can deploy), they transported the unirradiated Godzillasaurus in 1944 from Lagos Island, placing it deep beneath the navy waves of the Bering Sea. The Futurians had also placed Dorats onto the island. They happily ran about the island, awaiting the nuclear tests that were to happen a couple of years later. When the bomb struck the island, the creatures mutated and merged into King Ghidorah.

The Godzillasaurus in the Bering Sea was unknowingly mutated, and the leviathan further mutated when it absorbed the energy from a nuclear sub in 1992. King Ghidorah was sent to fight Godzilla, but a raid aboard MOTHER by Kenichiro Terasawa, Emmy Kano and M11 resulted in the time travelers' losing control over King Ghidorah. Godzilla quickly gained the upper hand shortly thereafter.

The Futurians desperately mounted an escape aboard MOTHER, but Kano, utilizing M11, teleported Godzilla right in front of the spacecraft as it tried to lift off. Godzilla blasted the ship, and it exploded. The plans of the Futurians to obliterate Japan had been stopped.

Emmy and M11 then traveled into the future aboard KIDS, intent on searching for a lifeless body that had a greater purpose.
