First Appearance Issue 2

The Gargantis Array is a legendary machine that was first mentioned in Issue 1, and then finally appeared in Issue 2.  


No one knows if the Gargantis Array actually even exists. But, according to a story that Vortian Prisoner 777 has heard, a Xliactian Historian was obsessed with the array. She learned something so horrible and awful about it, that she went into hiding so the secrets she discovered would stay hidden.  

Zim eventually tracks the historian down and convinces her to tell him how to find the Array, with Dib doing likewise while following Zim. They briefly fight outside the Array before Zim crash-lands on it, and Dib chases him through its interior (which appears to be larger than the exterior) before catching up with Zim just as he activates the Array.  

It's at this point that Zim reveals that the Gargantis Array is not a weapon, but a giant transmitter built long ago by a race that "liked screaming a lot". Zim then uses the Array to broadcast humiliating footage of a severely obese Dib trying to get back in shape.
