USS Saratoga (CVN-88) is a fictional aircraft carrier which first appears in the 2014 MonsterVerse Godzilla film, Godzilla.

History

Godzilla

After Joseph Brody is critically injured during the male MUTO's escape from Janjira, he and his son Ford are airlifted to the Saratoga with Vivienne Graham and Ishiro Serizawa aboard a Monarch helicopter.

Unfortunately, Joseph dies before the helicopter reaches the aircraft carrier. Once onboard, Ford learns more about the monster that killed his mother and father, and of Ishiro's knowledge of another mysterious monster.

After a day or so, Ford departs for Honolulu aboard another Monarch helicopter, as part of a journey to return home to his family in San Francisco. Shortly afterwards, a squadron of Naval F-18 Hornets and helicopters lift off from the Saratoga, bound for Hawaii, after they learned of a Russian submarine that was under attack off the coast of Oahu.

Afterwards, the aircraft carrier follows Godzilla to San Francisco, but stays out at sea to avoid being struck by the MUTOs' electromagnetic pulses.

Trivia

  • Early concept art for Godzilla suggests that Godzilla would attack an aircraft carrier during an early version of the film's plot.
  • Multiple ships owned by the US Navy have possessed the name Saratoga, with the most recent aircraft carrier bearing the name to have the code CVN-60. The US Navy has yet to reach the CVN-88 code, currently up to CVN-82 in terms of planned aircraft carriers.
  • The Saratoga is also mentioned in the script of TriStar's unmade Godzilla film.
  • The Saratoga is also used in the Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters prequel novel Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse.
