Plot

The Calico Crew are caught in a nasty storm that has being caused by a magnetic disturbance from a nearby passing comet known as "Taylor's Comet." While trying to brave through the storm, the crew notices that they are about to collide with another ship that looks identical to theirs. Once Brock manages to stop the ship just in time before the collision, the crew realizes that the other ship is actual a mirror reflection of their own, being caused by a giant Force Field. The reflection does not last for long however as a bolt of lightning causes the reflection to disappear. At that moment, an island appears in its place. The crew is then forced to make an emergency stop on the island when Godzooky alerts them that the Calico's hull has been damaged and is taking on a lot of Water. Unable to contact Godzilla with the Godzilla Signal due to the Storm's magnetic properties jamming it, Godzooky makes the call instead. Godzilla arrives just in time and places the damaged Calico on the island's beach to prevent it from sinking. Once Godzilla leaves, Majors suggests they wait until the Storm passes for them to repair the Calico. Unaware to the crew however, they are being watched by a mysterious giant figure...

The next day, Majors and Brock are left to repair the Calico, which has only sustained minor damage, while Quinn, Pete, and Godzooky are left to explore the island to find a way off of it (after Quinn notices that the force field from last night has become operational again, trapping them). Shortly after leaving, Quinn and Pete stumble across two things. One is an ancient alien-like computer and other being giant footprints in the sand. Suddenly while observing the latter, the giant figure from last night appears before them: a giant Cyclops Creature! The Cyclops corners Quinn, Pete, and Godzooky and attempts to kill them, but Majors hears the commotion and calls on Godzilla to save them. Godzilla arrives and tries to save the crew, but the force field surrounding the island is too strong for him to break through, leaving the Monster King unable to save them. During the commotion, the Cyclops captures Godzooky and takes the tiny monster hostage. The crew follows after to save Godzooky when they discover another ability of the Cyclops: It can also turn invisible.

During the fray, Godzooky manages to free itself from the creature, and the crew take refuge inside of a Cave while the Cyclops attempts to block their path. While in the cave, Quinn notices some hieroglyphics on the walls and translates them to discover the origins of the island and the Cyclops. Long ago, a spacecraft from another galaxy came to Earth and landed on the island, where it was attacked by the same Cyclops. Unable to defeat the creature, the crew of the spacecraft created the computer that Pete and Quinn stumbled across earlier to trap it by creating the force field that's surrounding the Island, with no chance of allowing the Cyclops to escape. As Quinn reads the hieroglyphics, the crew is attacked yet again by the Cyclops, but are luckily saved by Godzooky, who manages to find another way out. While sneaking away, the crew stumble across the computer again and Quinn attempts to use it herself.

Just as the creature notices them and attacks yet again, Quinn manages to disable the force field just in time, allowing Godzilla to enter the island and save the crew. As Godzilla and the Cyclops face off, the crew are left to find a way on how to escape the island without letting the Cyclops get off it as well. Majors and Brock resume repairing the Calico's hull while Quinn and Pete create a timer that will keep the force field open long enough for the Calico Crew and Godzilla to escape before the creature can get through. During the fight, the Cyclops turns invisible and retreats from his fight with Godzilla, while Quinn sets up the timer onto the computer, setting it to five minutes before the force field reactivates. With the Calico repaired, and time running out, the crew and Godzilla quickly flee the island as fast as they can.

Suddenly just as Godzilla is about to pass, he start struggling to move. The Cyclops, still invisible, is holding Godzilla off long enough for the timer to run out, trying to trap them both on the island. Working together, Pete and Brock help Godzilla by pouring Red Paint all over the creature from the Mini-Copter, rendering its invisibility useless. Now able to see it again, Godzilla battles with the Cyclops and hurls it off to the side, temporarily holding it off just long enough for him and the crew to escape as the force field is reactivated, trapping the Cyclops back on the island, without any escape.
