Meritamis is a character from the series Stingray.
Mauritimus is part of a race that live deep under the sea, on Earth, known as the Solarstars. Mauritimus was put in command of a one-man vessel with a large gun mounted on top, which was capable of causing devestation on a massive scale. One of his missions was assigned to him by the Solarstar Mighty Leader to destroy the United States of America.
Mauritimus failed, and was subsequently followed back to Solarstar, a base under the sea, by Stingray and its crew. Mauritimus perished when Marina fired a missile from Stingray, destroying him and the vessel, as well as Solarstar.
