If so, there's a wicked opportunity in 4v4 to mothership rush to an enemies base and recall 400 units into his base!!!

To address the actual opportunity: Also consider that you could recall 800 units in his base, or more limited depending on the amount of population the units take. Also, you are most likely unable to get the Mother-ship all the way to his base without your opponent interfering with that... – Tom Wijsman Aug 15 '11 at 16:37

It can not. Here's an excerpt:

Teleports all units owned by the player (but not units of teammates) in the target area to the Mothership.

Does that really work? Does one need to share control to recall allied forces? – Rotsor Aug 15 '11 at 15:28
:( I really wanna do this... – Anson Kao Aug 15 '11 at 18:46
Soooo..... What happens if you were to neural parasite an allies mothership? – E-Rock Aug 15 '11 at 22:17
e-rock- you should be able to recall any protoss units you own as zerg (via neuraling a probe). Also, beautiful things: – jzn Sep 16 '11 at 8:25

The mothership cannot recall your partner's units, only your own.
