The Techno-Sentient is a mysterious organism from outer space that has the ability to fuse itself with any mechanical device it comes into contact with. After attacking a boy's toy car, a hot dog stand and an electronics store and a construction site it grows to Zilla Junior-like proportions. It taps into the internet and learns about humans, Earth and the locations of weapons of mass destruction. H.E.A.T. pursue it to Fort McKenzie where it fights Zilla but the military open fire on both monsters. The Techno-Sentient takes this opportunity to wrap itself around a launch tower for a missile. Zilla then pounds on it, which causes it to become latched on, and it is fired into space and detonated.
The Techno-Sentient, being an extraterrestrial menace, has unique characteristics, such as the ability to incorporate any kind of machinery or technology into its body, allowing it to increase in size & mass. The Techno-Sentient gains the properties and abilities of the technology/machines that have been absorbed into its body. For example, when the monster absorbed a refrigerator, it had the ability to launch ice shards; and when it absorbed a tank, it gained a cannon. Amazingly, the outer space fiend also has the uncanny ability to disable missiles and render them harmless before they can explode in its body. The creature is also intelligent to a degree, as it found the location of a top-secret missile installation by utilizing the internet.
