Fort Pym, Antarctica:
The gathered dignatories of Project MONSTER ZERO assembled. They were thirteen in number. The oldest, and the founder of the group, was Dr. Daisuke Serizawa, inventor of the Oxygen Destroyer. The other eleven gathered, however, for anonymity preferred codenames. The first of these was an enigmatic and slightly demented man who called himself The Master via his code-name, and who sometimes ranted in his sleep of Gallifrey and something called a Tardis. He, of the thirteen, was assigned alone to Monster Zero, the giant golden dragon a joint United States/Soviet project had brought down from space. The other eleven, a gathering of elite and brilliant scientists, were there to hear Dr. Serizawa begin a speech whose lasting consequences would reverberate through all of human history:
"As you know, gentlemen and lady, we have in the last month witnessed the horrifying results of a clash of titans not seen since the dawn of time. Another Godzilla appeared, and with it a strange and unknown creature that deliberately sought to eat anything in its path. We know also that Godzilla is heading north, into the Arctic Circle. For the first time since the appearance and ravages of the first Godzilla, the members of the United Nations Security Council have attributed to us a common mission: to in conjunction with the efforts of the militaries of all states, especially the superpowers of the United States and the Soviet Union, seek to contain those daikaiju which we cannot eliminate.
We have established five projects, together under the umbrella term MONSTER ZERO. The first,, the original Monster Zero, shall be studied by Sir Geoffrey Masters. His task is to examine Monster Zero, and to see if it is possible to devise Kaiju in the form of deliberately prepared and planned weaponry.
The second, Monster One, is a colossal pterosaur of unknown origin. We were fortunate enough to entrap this creature and its mate, and to find eggs from it to study. This project shall seek to draw from Monster One, codenamed Rodan, what it is that can be drawn about creating creatures of the air.
The third, Monster Two, is a gigantic insect, currently code-named Mothra. This insect is attributed to be connected to legends of elven beings of a lost continent in the Pacific. We have captured currently an enormous blue splotched egg. The project here is to see if we can devise controllable monsters of an insectoid guise, or failing this kinds of poisons of a natural sort that will ward away the Daikaiju of the future from our cities.
The fourth, Monster Three, is an unusual creature of an indeterminate nature. It is the first currently identified lifeform to lack any recognizable DNA, and its building blocks seem composed of a matter whose origins we do not understand. It does, however, respond to religious exorcisms and the like which tame it. The object of this study is to identify the origins of the material of this monster, to see if the creature codenamed Varan can tell us anything of the origin of other Kaiju.
The last, Monster Four, is the most involved of all the projects, and it is to clone the monster Godzilla."
All the scientists leaned forward as Dr. Serizawa distributed flyers and notes noting this.
"Monster Four shall begin with Project Bagan, Monster Zero with Project....Guillon?" He looked to Masters.
"Ah. Why, if I may ask, did you chose a name derived from such a thing?"
"My dear doctor, it is because we at MONSTER ZERO are the sword of humankind."
"Hmf. Fair enough."
As the meeting adjourned, Geoffrey stretched forward, feet on the table, lighting a cigar with a strange pen-like device that emitted a laser-like flash. Exhaling a smoke-ring that was a perfect circle, Geoffrey Masters sighed contentedly. Then, in a tone somewhat saddened he said "Ah, if only my friend the Doctor could see me now."
Tsukiokia and Kobayashi, flying over the sea a month after the brutal attack by Godzilla and Anguirus on Shanghai, were now working for their company from a Japanese basis. The company had provided its pilots with larger planes that required co-spotters, but in the event that Godzilla was sighted would offer a better chance of holding up should the monster prove hostile. As plans were laid and foundations hammered into the isolated Antarctic, it had been over four weeks since the gigantic dragon of fire and sword had ravaged a city. The two men were focusing on their own work when three rows of maple leaf spines rose from the sea and a gigantic tail splashed. Godzilla roared, drawing in a massive breath, and again descended into the depths of the sea, searching for his prey, the massively headed but small-jawed whales that ate and tore at flesh.......
The two pilots, blinking in astonishment soon recorded their sighting, and again humankind would hold its breath in fear.......
Author's Note: Yes, Dr. Who fans, Geoffrey Masters is the Master, working with the future King Ghidorah.
