First appearance Godzilla 2000: Millennium

The Millennian (ミレニアン,   Mirenian) is an alien kaiju that appeared in the 1999 Godzilla film, Godzilla 2000: Millennium.

An advanced alien race that crash-landed on the Earth in their spaceship millions of years ago, the Millennians combined their biomass into a single entity while awaiting a time when they could become active again. Awakened in the present day when a submarine shone its lights on its ship, the Millennian sought out the ideal genetic host for its conquest of Earth. Eventually deciding on Godzilla, the Millennian subdued the creature and absorbed his DNA, mutating into the colossal abomination known as Orga.

Name

The Millennian's name comes from the word "Millennium," which comes from the title of the filmit appeared in. In the film itself, the Millennian is never named, but it is stated that it plans to establish an empire on Earth that will last a thousand years, or a millennium.

Personality

The Millennian seems to want to gather all the information from technology that it can, via telepathy, and biological information, such as Godzilla's Organizer G-1. Despite its intentions to take over Earth, it also seems to have no desire to fight unless it is necessary. Even once it mutated into Orga, it is obvious that the creature did not want to battle Godzilla until it realized that escape is not an option.

Origins

The Millennians were a scientifically advanced alien race who traveled to Earth in their spaceship seeking to establish an empire there. Their ship accidentally crashed in the ocean, with the lack of sunlight causing it to lose power. The Millennians combined their biomass into a singular entity and went dormant, awaiting the day the ship would be activated again. This day came in the year 2000, when a Crisis Control Intelligence research submarine shone its lights on the now-fossilized UFO, reactivating it and awakening the Millennian within.

History

Millennium era

Godzilla 2000: Millennium

The Millennians were a species of alien that traveled to Earth in an advanced spaceship during the Cretaceous period in order to establish their own empire. However, their ship crashed into the ocean and shut down due to a lack of incoming solar energy. The Millennians were forced to convert their bodies into antimatter and become dormant. After eons of slumber, the Millennians were awakened when a research submarine shined its lights on the ship, giving it enough energy to ascend to the surface. The Millennians immediately began searching for a way to take a new form so they could adapt to Earth's atmospheric conditions, and scanned the humans that were studying the UFO but determined they were not suitable. After the sun had risen, the UFO flew to Tokai and encountered Godzilla. The Millennians concluded that Godzilla was the most powerful lifeform on Earth and that he would be the ideal vessel for them to adapt to the planet, due to Organizer G1, a substance in his cells that granted him almost limitless regeneration. The UFO battled Godzilla and blasted him into the ocean with its plasma cannon. The UFO touched down near the ocean at sundown and became stationary in the absence of solar energy. During that time, Crisis Control Intelligence attempted to restrain the UFO and study its occupants. By sunrise, the UFO broke free of the cables restraining it and flew to Tokyo, eventually landing on the top of a skyscraper in Shinjuku. The Millennians then hacked into all of the city's computers, searching for more information about Godzilla. The Millennians' data collection was interrupted when CCI used multiple Blast Bombs to destroy the building the UFO was perched on, which still failed to destroy the craft. Suddenly, Godzilla rose from Tokyo Bay and entered the city center to challenge the UFO. After a fierce battle, the UFO buried Godzilla under a skyscraper and began to absorb his cells. At this same time, the Millennians transmitted a message to the humans stating their intentions to establish a thousand-year empire on Earth. After absorbing Godzilla's DNA, the Millennians took a combined giant squid-like form and emerged from the UFO. However, they underestimated the volatile properties of Godzilla's DNA, and the Millennian began to mutate rapidly before slumping over to the ground in a deforming mass. When the Millennian rose again, it had transformed into Orga.

Abilities

As Orga, the Millennian acquired massive physical strength and the ability to fire a beam of energy similar to that of their spaceship from its right shoulder. It also gained the ability to assimilate an opponent's DNA by biting them.

The Millennians pilot their saucers using telepathy, which they also use to tap into all technological devices, including computers, to gather their data, as well as transmit messages on all media machines. It also used telepathy to lasso Godzilla with underground cables, so that the alien can wear out the monster in order to gain the Organizer G-1.

Video games

Godzilla: Save the Earth

The Millennian appears as a boss in the Challenge mode of Godzilla: Save the Earth. After Godzilla destroys the Millennian UFO, the Millennian will emerge and act like a turret, blasting Godzilla with energy beams. After the Millennian is defeated, it will transform into Orga.

Trivia

  • The Millennian is the first Toho monster portrayed completely by computer generated imagery.
  • The Millennians are an example of a race of aliens which can also be considered kaiju in their own right, similar to the Virasians. Curiously, they also have an ability similar to the Virasians to merge together into a single gigantic entity. Whereas the Virasians merged into Viras, the Millennians merged into a collective form that later became Orga.
  • In the manga adaptation, the Millenians are portrayed very differently, instead being a race of humanoid entities that merge together into Orga. In the manga, the Millenian also show the ability to replicate other lifeforms, as one of them copies Io Shinoda to deliver exposition.

Its kind of surprising that these guys don't have a copyright image like all of the other monsters. The Millennians are technically the antagonists (they end up turning into Orga) so its strange that they didn't get one.

Especially considering such things as the Godzillasaurus, which ends up turning into Godzilla, and Aqua Mothra, which is just a form of Mothra Leo, both have icons.

The Millennians had so much more potential. It's a shame we didn't see them before they got turned into antimatter, or hear more of their plans for Earth.

The Godzilla 2000 manga is so far the only piece of media to really explore the Millennians to a greater degree. It develops them more and portrays them as surprisingly frightening and horrific beings.
