"Calico Clones" is the 14th episode of Godzilla and the first episode of Season 2.

Plot

The Calico Crew are out at sea, en route to rendezvous with Dr. Wayside, (for reasons that are unknown to the Calico Crew.) Suddenly while heading out to meet with the doctor, the crew is taken by surprise by the appearance of a giant tanker ship. Quinn calls out to Godzilla as the Calico gets swallowed up by a front compartment of the tanker, but by the time Godzilla arrives, both ships are submerged underwater. Quinn tries to call him again, but the thick metal of the tanker distorts the signal and only confuses Godzilla, thus the Monster King leaves and the crew is forced to look for another way out. Before they can look, a mysterious UFO appears before them and sprays them all with a gas, rendering the crew and Godzooky unconscious.

Later, the crew wakes up to discover themselves with bandages on their arms and encased in a glass bubble, inside a bigger glass tank filled with piranhas. A voice then speaks to the crew, introducing himself as "Dr. Kasmia Voltrang," who Quinn reveals was a biologist until he was fired from his job at an institute after being caught experimenting on humans 10 years ago. After having the crew sent to him by his army of unsettling identical women servants, Voltrang reveals to the crew that his assistant (and daughter,) a woman he refers to as "No. 1" was the first of his new cloning experiment (explaining the other women who escorted them from before) and that after retrieving samples of their blood, he intends on cloning them as well. In addition, Voltrang also reveals to the crew that he had also cloned a squid and had enhanced its size to serve him. Lastly, Voltrang reveals his intentions for cloning the Calico crew: Dr. Wayside, the man they were to meet up with had discovered a gigantic oil deposit, and Voltrang plans on using the clones of the crew to rendezvous with Dr. Wayside in place of the original crew so that Voltrang may know where the oil deposit is himself.

While being escorted back to their cells, the crew attempts to radio to Dr. Wayside of Voltrang's plans, but are quickly caught by Voltrang's No. 1 clones. While inside their cell however, Majors gets an idea: The crew will instead switch places with Voltrang's clones of themselves and fool Voltrang into believing that they are his clones while they make their escape. Pete frees the crew from their prison, and they observe how Voltrang's voice commands work on the clones, and prepare to set their trap. Majors manages to trick the clones by using the exact voice commands that Voltrang used earlier and he places them inside of their cell while the real crew members board the Calico, pretending to be the clones in their place. The plan is a success and the Calico is released from Voltrang's tanker, allowing them to escape and notify Dr. Wayside of Voltrang's insidious scheme.

Voltrang eventually finds out that he has been deceived, and he furiously releases his giant squid to kill the crew. The squid catches up with the Calico and tries to crush it, but Godzooky manages to call out to Godzilla for help. Godzilla arrives on the scene and after rescuing Godzooky (whom got caught by the Squid's tentacles) he tangles with the giant squid. After a short battle, Godzilla quickly defeats the squid by tying all of its tentacles together and hurling it far away from the Calico. Voltrang's tanker appears again, this time attempting to collide with the Calico. This time however, Godzilla is ready to save them, and the Monster King quickly disposes of Voltrang's ship by tossing it up and over, where it sinks.

Godzilla then seizes Voltrang and No. 1's get-away ship as it's escaping from the sinking vessel. Majors then states that he'll radio the coast guard, where they will take Voltrang and his clones into custody for the trouble he's caused.
