The Gohten's name comes from the Gotengo, omitting the "gō" suffix which serves to designate the craft as a type of ship. As such, the Gohten's name may be literally translated as simply "Roaring Heavens" in English. Its name is distinguished from that of the Gotengo's in English by its romanization of the long "o" sound in gō as "oh." This name appears on the uniforms of the ship's crew in the film as well as on official merchandise as recent as the Toho SFX Movies Authentic Visual Books. The "gō" is also omitted from the name of the Gotengo in GODZILLA: Monster Apocalypse, however in this novel the craft is more reminiscent of the Gotengo featured in Atragon than the Gohten. The Gohten is sometimes given the full designation UNSF Gohten, which stands for "United Nations Space Force Gohten."
The Gohten is the flagship of the human fleet. After a vicious battle against the Messiah 13 aliens around the spaceship's base, it travels to Venus. Afterwards, it travels across the planet in search of the Alien base.
