There is an organization in place to help protect us, and they are called the Science Special Search Party. This group is the peak of high technology and resources. Simply put, they are Earth's only defense mechanism. It is a worldwide organization, but this show centers on the division in Tokyo, Japan.

The organization begins to feel overwhelmed and outmatched. One of the workers there has a special tool that can help them. It is the key to having him transform into the superhero known as Ultraman. As well known as Ultraman is, no one knows who is under the suit. His identity remains a secret. Throughout the show's duration, the energy source that helps make the ordinary employee make the transformation to Ultraman is running out. If it ever were to completely run out, Ultraman will never be able to save the day again. Each episode will see Ultraman defending Earth against a new monster or alien.
