I got a replacement plug from AutoZone last night, $1.69 it was M12 X 1.5 and has a magnet to catch metal flotsam.
Permatex (Loctite) makes a thread restorer product that is an epoxy to create new threads, I think Permatex could make this work if anyone could. You could use this with a drain valve to reduce the possibility of stripping it in future oil changes.

Good luck!
