"The Time Dragons" is the thirteenth episode of Godzilla.


The Calico crew are out at sea in the Mid-Atlantic Ocean when Brock picks up a fast approaching object on the Calico's radar. Majors initially believes it's just a bird, until the Calico receives a radio signal that a nuclear-powered satellite has fallen out of orbit and is projected to land soon. To the crew's horror, the icon on the radar is none other than the fallen satellite, which is in danger of striking them. Majors quickly calls upon Godzilla and the Monster King arrives just in time to save the crew from the satellite by catching it in his claws.

Immediately afterwards, a green aura overtakes Godzilla and the Calico. Once the aura disappears, Godzilla and the crew find themselves in the middle of a tropical rain forest, with the Calico stuck in a tar pit. After being helped out by Godzilla, Quinn immediately notices a nearby plant that went extinct millions of years ago, deducing that everyone was sent back in time by the satellite. Lost in this new, unknown land, Godzilla goes off to explore while the crew goes to find a way to get everyone back home. While exploring, the crew stumbles across the Atlantic Ocean as it was previously. There, they are attacked by the sudden appearance of a dinosaur known as Diplodocus. The Diplodocus notices the crew and attempts to eat them, but Majors calls on Godzilla again and the Monster King arrives just in time to fend the dinosaur off with his fire. As the Diplodocus retreats, Godzilla then heads into the ocean to continue exploring while the crew resumes looking for a way home.

While exploring, the crew gets separated when Pete is attacked by a Carnivorous Plant. Brock and Godzooky go off to find Pete, when Majors and Quinn fall into a giant pit that was dug. Eventually, Majors and Quinn are pulled out of the pit by a group of hostile cavemen, who take them as prisoners to be their slaves. Meanwhile, Brock and Godzooky find and rescue Pete from the plant by force-feeding it a boulder. When meeting back up with Majors and Quinn, Godzooky's appearance frightens away the cavemen and Majors and Quinn are saved. One of the cavemen reveals himself as Torak, the chief of his tribe, who apologizes for their hostility, believing that Godzooky is a dragon. Torak and the cavemen lead the crew to the rest of their gathering, informing them that, due to the dinosaurs that roam the land (whom Torak refers to as "dragons" as well), they are forced to constantly travel so as to not be attacked.

Feeling sympathetic for the traveling primitive humans, Majors notices a nearby group of caves that could be used as homes to house them (Torak stated that none of them live in their out of fear of them being haunted, oblivious to that the cave's "hauntings" are in fact earthquakes). Sometime later, the primitive humans have now moved into the caverns and are much more comfortable. The crew has also teach them how to defend themselves by creating wood fences and catapults to drive away any dinosaurs that attack them. Out of gratitude for teaching them how to protect themselves, and for giving them a new home, Torak and the cavemen show the crew some of their paintings that they've been making of them. When one of them depicts the crew aboard the Calico, it reminds them that they must go back home. The crew returns to the tar pit to discover that the Calico hasn't sunk and is still in one piece.

Suddenly, a giant blue dinosaur appears before the crew and attacks them. After Majors loses the Godzilla Signal, Godzooky calls for Godzilla instead. Godzilla hears the call and battles with the dinosaur. During their fight, an earthquake occurs and a gray substance oozes to the surface, which Quinn identifies as raw uranium ore (pitchblende). Godzilla grabs a handful of the ore and disappears, to which Quinn states that Godzilla has been sent back to the present. The dinosaur turns its attention back to the Calico and resumes trying to kill the crew, only to be held off by Torak and his cavemen, who bombard the beast with mud clots. When Quinn tells Torak to use the ore instead, Torak then hits the dinosaur with the substance, causing it and the nearby Calico to be sent back to the present as well.

The Calico and Godzilla are now back in the present, but so is the dinosaur, who re-engages Godzilla in battle. The Calico then learns that the satellite that sent them to the past is about to strike yet again. Learning from their last encounter, however, Godzilla blows the satellite towards the dinosaur, who catches it and is sent back to his own time, setting everything back to normal.
