When Galvanax, cruel champion of galaxy warriors, claimed the mighty power stars, Earth's greatest ninja sacrificed himself to keep the universe safe. Ten years later, a new generation of warriors rises up to protect the Ninja power stars. They are Power Rangers: Ninja Steel!
(Fifteen years ago. The planet Candor. A merchant, Allmun Trueseeker opens his shop. He has with him his wife and young son, Allsun. Allsun has his pet amphian.)
Allsun: Stop squirming, Hopperoing.
(A large imposing figure enters. he is wearing a hooded cloak.)
Allmun: How may I help you? Figure: I seek metal. Metal like no other in the universe. Allmun: I do not sell metal. Only what my family raises on our farm. Figure: I would say you are lying, but, you are a Candorite. You are incapable of that. I will take everything you have. Allmun: If we sell you everything, many we sell to would starve. Figure: I am offering you quite a lot of galactic credits. Allmun: We will not sell everything to one person. Figure; Then I will take it.
(The figure attacks. In an instant, Allmun and his wife lie lifeless on the floor.)
Allsun: Mother! Father! Figure: You are too young to stop me. But, you are still a witness. You will be coming with me.
(The figure picks up young Allsun and teleporta away with him to a waiting ship.)
Alien: Master. Did you find what you needed? Figure: No.
(The figure removes his cloak. He is an armored warrior named Galvanax.)
Galvanax: But, I have gained a new servant. He may be young now, I would say, 3 years old, but someday, he will serve me well. And by then, I will be champion of Galaxy Warriors.
(Flashback. A young man named Brody Romero recounts how he got to where he is today.)
Brody (VO): Ten years ago, the Ninja Nexus Prism fell out of the sky, right into our backyard.
(A strange looking object flies through space and into the atmosphere, crashing behind the home of Ninja Master Dane Romero, and his two sons, Aiden and Brody.)
Brody (v/o): Dad said it came to us for a reason. He removed its metallic crust. Inside the prism was the mysterious Ninja Nexus Star. Somehow dad was able to reach right into the solid prism and pull it out. He had no idea of its legendary power.
(Dane looks at the star, which shines with many colors. Red, Blue, pink, yellow, white, silver, gold, green, brown and black, a veritable rainbow.)
Brody (v/o): I was outside training...
(Brody, the younger son, is practicing his martial arts moves.)
Brody (v/o): ...when a monster came...
(A large creature steps on a toy dump truck, crushing it.)
Brody (v/o): ...and everything changed.
Brody: Dad! Aiden, help!
(Dane grabs his sword.)
Dane: Brody's in trouble.
(Dane collects the metal from the prism into a bucket, and gives it to Aiden.)
Dane: Take the Ninja Steel and hide it. Aiden, until I come back, you stay hidden too. Like a ninja. Aiden: Okay, dad. Dane: And don't worry. I'll save your brother. I love you. Aiden: I love you too, dad.
(Father and son hug. Dane rushes outside and unsheathes his sword. he sees the enemy, an alien warrior named Galvanax, who has Brody in his grasp.)
Galvanax: So you're the ninja master! Dane: Let Brody go! Galvanax: Of course! You're surrounded any way.
(Galvanax releases Brody, who runs over to his father. Another alien named Ripcon walks up behind them.)
Ripcon: You're not going anywhere!
(A third alien, madame Odious, also arrives, chuckling.)
Galvanax: Now, give me the Ninja Nexus Star!
(Dane takes out the star.)
Brody: You can't give it to him, dad. Galvanax: He has no choice!
(Galvanax fires a blast at Dane, who blocks it with the Ninja Nexus Star. The power of the star transforms Dane into a Red Ranger.)
Galvanax: What?! Odious: The legend is true. He's become a Power Ranger! Dane: Brody, stay back!
(Dane uses his abilities to fight Galvanax.)
Galvanax: Hand over that star! Dane: Never!
(Ripcon grabs Brody.)
Ripcon: Heh! You're coming with me, rat bait! Brody: Dad! Dane: Brody!
(Dane rushes to help Brody.)
Dane: Get away from my son!
(Galvanax blasts Dane from behind, forcing him to power down. The Ninja Nexus star flies out of his hand. Galvanax picks it up.)
Galvanax: Yes! The Ninja Nexus Star is mine! Once I absorb its power, I will rule the universe!
(Galvanax starts to absorb the power of the Ninja Nexus star.)
Odious: With the Ninja Nexus Star, you'll be invincible! Ripcon: Yes!
(Dane gets back to his feet.)
Dane: That star came to me so I could protect it from evil like you!
(Dane grabs his katana and attacks, shattering the Ninja Nexus Star. It unleashes a massive cloud of smoke. Dane is nowhere to be seen)
Brody: Dad! Dad! Brody (VO): My dad just vanished into thin air. And in his place, somehow the Ninja Nexus Prism appeared. Inside it, I saw the pieces of the broken star transform into nine Ninja Power Stars.
(Seven of the stars are each one color. Red, blue, pink, yellow, white, silver and gold. One star has three colors, green, brown and black. The final star has all the colors of the rainbow. Brody starts to reach into the prism, like his father did, but Galvanax shoves him away.)
Galvanax: Back off! They're mine!
(Galvanax starts hacking at the prism with his weapon.)
Odious: It can't be broken. Galvanax: I'll find a way to get those stars out, and once I do the universe will grovel at my feet! Bring the Prism to the ship, and put that brat in chains. Ripcon: You're Galvanax's prisoner now, rat bait. Brody: Aiden! Aiden!
(End Flashback. Ten years later, Brody is still on Galvanax's ship. He has three friends. The robot called Redbot, a shapeshifter named Mick Kanic, and Allsun, Galvanax's servant, who is around Brody's age. Allsun is from the planet Candor, and always speaks the truth.)
Redbot: Brody, are you okay? Brody: Yeah, I'm fine, Redbot. Redbot: You were thinking about the day you lost your father, weren't you? Brody: It's been ten years, but... still feels like yesterday. Allsun: I know how you feel. It has been thirteen years since Galvanax killed my parents and took me as his servant. Not a day goes by that I do not miss them. Or my pet amphian, Hopperoing. Redbot: Don't worry. Some day, we'll get back to your planet and find your brother Aiden.
(The three of hem, and Mick, are working near a garbage chute)
Mick: Speaking of escaping, it's time we made a plan to get out of here. Mick: Brody, we are on a spaceship. Where are we gonna escape to? Brody: You tell me. Hey, you're the mechanical genius. Mick: Well...
Mick: It's Ripcon! Hide!
(Mick changes into a mop. Brody holds him.)
Ripcon: Hey! What were you talking about? Redbot: Oh dear! Nothing, Master Ripcon. We were just throwing all the outdated equipment into the trash.
Ripcon unsheathes his sword.)
Ripcon: I ought to throw you into the trash! is that true, Candorite? Allsun: Yes, We were throwing out the useless equipment. (thinking) I may not be able to lie, but I do not need to tell him everything. Brody: Uh, actually, I was just telling Redbot. and Allsun about the newest ninja move I learned. Ripcon: Ninjas are fast and stealthy. You're no ninja! Brody: Hey, look!
(Brody points behind Ripcon.)
Ripcon: What? I don't see anything!
(Brody quickly swaps his mop and Ripcon's sword.)
Brody: Whoa! Ripcon: Give me that!
(Ripcon takes back his sword, giving Brody back the mop.)
Ripcon: Maybe you are a ninja, but your dad was a ninja master and look where it got him.
(Before Brody can say anything, Madame Odious arrives, accompanied by two Kudabots, robotic foot soldiers.)
Odious: You, prisoners! Take the Prism to the stage. The show is about to begin. Redbot: Yes, Madam Odious. Right away! Come along, Brody. Please? Suffering circuits!
(Redbot practically has to drag Brody away.)
Odious: Galvanax needs you to help him, Candorite. Allsun: Yes, Madame.
(Allsun heads for Galvanax's quarters. And soon, the show Madame Odious mentioned begins._
Announcer (v/o): Ladies and gentle monsters from across the universe, welcome to the Warrior Dome! It's time for another explosive episode of... Galaxy Warriors!
(The announcer is a top hate wearing alien. Brody, Mick and Redbot wait offstage, with the Ninja Nexus Prism.)
Announcer: The mightiest, fiercest, and smelliest monsters in the universe will join me, Cosmo Royale, to fight for a chance to pull out one of the mysterious Ninja Power Stars, and become an ultimate champion like Galvanax!
(Two Kudabots wheel the Prism out onto the stage.)
Cosmo: Introducing, from the X-10 System, Lavagor! Fighting Korvaka, the champion of the Ninninger Galaxy!
(Two armored fighters take to the stage, before being teleported to the surface of a nearby planet..)
Cosmo: Let the battle begin! Fly, buzzcams, fly!
(Tiny robotic cameras start flying, to show the fight to those on the Warrior Dome, and watching across the universe. Galvanax arrives on the bridge of the Warrior Dome.)
Galvanax: Activate the monitors immediately, you worthless Kudobots!
(Two more Kudabots turn on the monitors.)
Crowd: Fight, fight, fight!
(On the planet, Korvaka is off to an early lead in the battle.)
Korvaka: You're nothing!
(Korvaka deals a devastating blow, knocking Lavagor into some water.)
Korvaka: You're done!
Cosmo: Our victor-- Korvaka!
(Korvaka is teleported back to the Warrior Dome.)
Cosmo: The legend says that some warriors can reach right into the Prism and pull out a Ninja Power Star! Is Korvaka mighty enough? Korvaka: Let me at it!
(Brody watches intently as Korvaka reaches into the Prism.)
Korvaka: I'm in. I'm in the Prism!
(The Prism ejects Korvaka with a burst of energy, and without a Power Star.)
Cosmo: Oh, too bad, Korvaka. But you still win something: a trip to the hospital!
(Galvanax and Ripcon are waiting as the prism is wheeled off the stage.)
Galvanax: Ten years, and no one has been able to pull out a Power Star. I can't wait any longer. There must be a way to get those stars out. Odious: You could build new stars. Ripcon: Build new stars? That's impossible! You can't trust Madam Odious, champ. Galvanax: How? Odious: My spies have learned that when the Prism landed on Earth it was covered in Ninja Steel, which can be melted down to create new Power Stars.
(Brody, Redbot, Mick and Allsun are eavesdropping.)
Galvanax: Set a course for Earth. We're going after that steel!
(Galvanax and the others leave.)
Redbot: They're going after the steel that your dad found! Mick: We have got to stop them. Do you know where it is? Brody: I don't, but my brother Aiden might. We have to get off this ship. Allsun: To finally be free after fifteen years. That will be great.
(On Earth, in the city of Summer Cove, it is the first day of school at Summer Cove High. One student, a budding magician named Preston Tien gets off the bus. His magic scarves snag on the side of the bus, wrapping around other passengers as he tries to retrieve them.)
Preston: Uh, hold on. Whoops! Jeez!
(After collecting his scarves, he hands out fliers.)
Preston: Oh, I'm having a magic show later. Girl: Thanks.
(Nearby, another student, Calvin Maxwell, is working on his truck, which he refers to as Nitro. His girlfriend, Hayley Foster, is behind the wheel with her dog, Kodi, in the bed of the truck.)
Calvin: Try it now.
(Hayley turns the key, and the engine starts.)
Hayley: It started!
(Suddenly a new student, Sarah Thompson, comes though, on a hoverboard she invented.)
Sarah: Coming through!
(She narrowly clears Calvin, who was on the ground.)
Sarah: Sorry about that!
(She continues on without further incident, stopping at the edge of the stairs, where Preston is standing.)
Preston: Whoa-- Uh, um, having a magic show later. If you wanna come watch.
(Preston hands Sarah one of his fliers.)
Sarah: Thanks. That's really sweet.
(Sarah heads inside. Up in space, the Warrior Dome arrives. A device that all prisoners on the Dome wear, a Datacom, alerts Brody and the others.)
Datacom: The ship has arrived at planet Earth. All prisoners report to security.
(Brody heads through the corridors, with the concealed Ninja Nexus Prism. He meets up with Mick, Redbot and Allsun.)
Brody: Mick! Mick: Oh, great! You got the Nexus Prism! Brody: Of course. Redbot: And I got the keys to a space cruiser. Brody: You see? Gettin' outta this tin can is gonna be a cinch.
(A laser blast strikes the keys, rendering them useless. The blast came from three Kudabots. Brody dispatches them by knocking over some barrels.))
Mick: Uh, is there a Plan B? Brody: Yeah, but you're not gonna like it. Come on!
(Brody and Mick head down the corridor, as the Kudabots recover and start firing. Redbot and Allsun follow them.)
Redbot: Ah! Suffering circuits! Allsun: I would prefer anything to being blasted at.
(Back at Summer Cove High, Sarah receive her orientation package and starts to look around. A nerdy young man walks over to her.)
Man 2: Quit pestering the girl, Monty. Is my homework done? Monty: All done, Victor. Man: I am Victor Vincent. Sarah: Oh, nice to meet you. I'm Sarah. Victor: You probably recognize my name as Class President. Sarah: Ooh, no, I'm sorry. It's my first day, actually. Victor: First day? Well, you know my name now.
(victor drags Sarah over to the school trophy case.)
Sarah: Oh-- ooh, okay. Victor: And if you ever forget it, just look at these trophies. 'Cause my name's engraved on every last one of 'em. Sarah: Hmm.
(Sarah notices one trophy that doesn't have Victor's name in it.)
Sarah: Dane Romero? Victor: Uh, almost every one.
(Victor notices Sarah's hoverboard.)
Victor: Ah! I see we share the same hobby. Sarah: No, no, no. I really don't think you should-- Monty: Ah, Victor can do anything. Victor: Watch the master at work.
(Victor gets on Sarah's hoverboard, and starts to move, out of control, across the lobby.)
Victor: Out of the way!
(Outside, Preston's magic show is underway.)
Preston: And now I, Presto Change-o, shall transform into a dragon!
(There is a puff of smoke, and when it clears, Preston is wearing a dragon costume. Victor comes out the door on Sarah's hoverboard, with Sarah following.)
Victor: Whoa! Whoa, look out! Out of the way! Whoa, look out!
(Victor crashes into Preston s magic show, taking his dragon costume, leaving Preston in only his boxer shorts. The dragon mask obscures Victor's vision.)
Victor: Whoa, ah, I can't see!
(Victor finally comes to a stop, landing in a dumpster. Preston, Sarah and Monty all rush over.)
Preston: Thanks a lot, Victor! You totally ruined my show. Victor (to Sarah): Your hoverboard needs some serious adjustments. Sarah: Your brain is what needs adjustment. And look at what you did to this guy's magic show. You owe him an apology. Victor: Apology? Pfft! Monty: Uh, trust me, this is the first time anyone's actually enjoyed one of his magic shows--
(victor uses Monty for support as he jumps out of the dumpster. Victor and Monty leave.)
Preston: Unbelievable. Sarah: I am so sorry about that. Preston: It's okay. He's kinda right. No one will forget that trick any time soon. Oh, uh, is your hoverboard okay? Sarah: Yeah, it's fine. I built it to be as tough as a freight train. And as fast. Come on. I'll help you clean up. Preston: Thanks.
(Back on the Warrior Dome, Ripcon has discovered the Ninja Nexus Prism is missing.)
Ripcon: Hurry! I'll make them pay for stealing the Prism!
(Mick, Brody and Allsun have just placed the Prism in the garbage chute. Redbot had already gone down the chute. Allsun follows it down as Ripcon finds them.)
Ripcon: Stop right there, rat bait! Mick: Ah!
(Startled, Mick falls into the chute.)
Brody: I told you: You shouldn't mess with a ninja.
(Brody presses a button, opening the garbage cute at the other end, then jumps down the chute himself. The four of them fall through the chute, and into the sky above Summer Cove.
Redbot: Brody, Allsun, I'll save you! Jet Boots fire up!
(Jets on Redbot's feet ignite, allowing him to fly over, grabbing both Brody and Allsun.)
Redbot: Gotcha! We're too heavy. Hard to navigate. Hold on for a rough landing! Allsun: It is preferable to falling and not surviving the impact.
(As for Mick...)
Mick: Oh, geez. I'm gonna need to be something cushy.
(Mick transforms, but not into something cushy, but into a boulder. Down on the ground, Preston and Sarah are cleaning up.)
Preston: And some day I'll be the best magician of all time. Sarah: Nice! That's a great goal. Mine is to set a speed record on my hoverboard.
(The two of them notice the rain of garbage from the Warrior Dome.)
Preston: What do you think that is? Sarah: I don't know... but I'm gonna find out.
(Sarah gets on her hoverboard, ready to investigate.)
Preston: Are you crazy? It could be, like, dangerous or... radioactive? Maybe a UFO! Sarah: Now that would be incredible. Preston: Okay, wait. Can you take a passenger? Sarah: All aboard.
(Preston climbs aboard. He holds on to Sarah with one hand, and onto his top hat with the other.)
Preston: Whoa! Sarah: Hold on, Magic Boy.
(They take off to investigate the raining objects. Back on the Warrior Dome...)
Galvanax: How dare they steal my Prism?! And my servant! Move it!
(Galvanax knocks down a Kudabot. Korvaka follows him, having recovered from his experience with the Ninja Nexus Prism.)
Galvanax: Bring me back the Prism and the Ninja Steel. Fail, and I'll fry you in the ship's engine. Korvaka: I won't let you down.
(Down on Earth, Brody and Allsun are in the forest, outside of Summer Cove.)
Allsun: We have survived, with no permanent damage. Redbot.: Master Brody. I require assistance. Brody: Redbot.!
(Brody and Allsun help Redbot to his feet.)
Brody: You okay, buddy? Redbot: Luckily my core systems are fully functional. Brody: You saved me. Thanks, buddy. Allsun: You saved both of us. Redbot: I should be thanking you. We're finally free! Brody: Whoo! Redbot: So, this is Earth? Brody: Exactly as I remember. Redbot: It's very... green. Allsun: It reminds me of the area near my family farm back on Candor. I found Hopperoing in a pond there, when I was 1. My father helped me catch him.
(Brody uses his Datacom to try and contact Mick.)
Brody: Mick? Where are you?
(All he gets is static.)
Redbot: I hope he's okay.
(The Ninja Nexus Prism landed nearby.)
Brody: I'll hide the Nexus Prism, you scan the area for Mick. Redbot: Yes, Brody. Right away. Allsun: I will help you, Brody.
(as Brody stares at the prism, a portal opens, and Korvaka runs out of it, tackling Brody.)
(Korvaka and Brody start fighting, with Korvaka holding the upper hand, just as in his battle with Lavagor.)
Korvaka: Did you really think you could steal the Nexus Prism? This belongs to Galvanax. as does your Candorite friend.
(Brody tries to knock Korvaka down, but Korvaka dodges.)
Korvaka: Stay back, fool! You're weak!
(Korvaka tosses Brody.)
Brody: Computer? Datacom: Ready. Brody: Yes! I'm still connected to the ship's computer. How can I beat this monster? Datacom: You cannot beat Korvaka alone. Korvaka: You're no match for me.
(Korvaka fires a blast, knocking both Brody and Allsun into the air.)
Korvaka: Prepare for total destruction!
(Before Korvaka and finish them off...)
Sarah: Hey, ugly! Korvaka: Huh?!
(Sarah and Preston slam into Korvaka, knocking him back away from Brody and Allsun.)
Sarah: See? I told you that wasn't a guy in a costume. Preston: Then what in the world is it? Sarah: I don't think it's from this world. Brody: Man, you really saved our skin. Thanks. Allsun: Indeed, thank you. (thinking) I haven't seen a female other than Madame Odious since I lost my mother. I find this one most pleasing to look at. Sarah: Sure, but who are you? And why is that... thing chasing you? And why does your friend have blue hair? Brody: Those are great questions, but they're gonna have to wait. Korvaka: I'm so dizzy!
(Brody and Allsun head over to the Prism, Sarah and Preston follow them.)
Sarah: Whoa, what are those? Brody: They're the Ninja Power Stars. It's glowing, like the Nexus Star did ten years ago. Before my dad pulled it out.
(Brody reaches into the prism. He is not ejected, like Korvaka, and is able to pull out the Red Power Star.)
Brody: I can't believe it.
(Allsun manages to reach into the prism as well. He pulls out the Silver Power Star.)
Allsun: Silver. Like the Minutiaeian vessels of the cadets who shopped at my father's store.
(Preston and Sarah both reach into the Prism as well.)
(Like Brody and Allsun, they also putt our Power Stars. Preston the Blue Star and Sarah the Pink Star.)
Preston: How did I just do that? Sarah: Impossible! Brody: I'm trying to remember. That thing crashed into our backyard and my dad pulled a star out of it, just like we did. He turned into some sort of ninja superhero. The monsters called him... Power Ranger. Sarah: A Power Ranger? Allsun: My father had a book, written by a great Minutiaeian Colta Explorato. He was also a Power Ranger. As were his wife, and his cousins. Brody: Follow exactly what I do and we may just save our skins. Come on! Preston: Uh... okay. Sarah" I'm right behind you. I guess.
(Korvaka finally recovers.)
Korvaka: Huh... I'm back in the game!
(Brody, Allsun, Preston and Sarah confront him.)
Korvaka: Wait, those are Galvanax's Ninja Power Stars. Give them back!
(Brody holds out his hand, a four pointed star shaped Morpher appears. Brody places the Power Star in it.)
Brody: Guys, do what I did.
(Preston, Sarah and Allsun do the same.)
Preston: Whoa! It's like magic! Allsun: Fascinating. Sarah: Oh, this oughta be interesting.
(The three of them place their Power Starts in the morphers.)
Brody: Buckle your seat belts. Allsun: What is a seat belt?
(Korvaka fires. The four of them use the Morphers like shields, just as Dane did with the Ninja Nexus Star a decade earlier.)
Korvaka: They couldn't survive that!
(Bur survive they did, and the four of them are now Power Rangers, and are armed with swords.)
Sarah: Whoa! Brody: Check it out! Preston: It's some kind of mystical metamorphosis! Allsun: I have never felt like this before. Korvaka: What?! Sarah: I feel powerful! Like I have the strength of ten freight trains! Brody: This is epic! We've become Power Rangers! Korvaka: Power Rangers? Makes no difference! I'll destroy you anyway! Brody: Let's finish this.
(The four Rangers attack Korvaka.)
Sarah: Whoa, I feel like a ninja star with this weapon! Preston: Let's call them our Ninja Star Blades. Sarah: Heads up, Stink Breath! Brody: Yeah, someone forgot to brush! Allsun: The odor is worse than the garbage chute we escaped through.
(Preston delivers a kick to Korvaka.)
Sarah: Good one! Lucky we're here. You'd be crazy to fight this guy on your own. Brody: Just like the Datacom said. We can do this together. Guys, let's try our other weapons.
(The four Rangers reach to their sides, drawing blasters.)
Preston: Ninja Blasters? Very cool! Korvaka: I'm gonna leave here with those Power Stars! Brody: Change of plans. Rangers: Ninja Blast!
(The four Rangers open fire, destroying Korvaka.)
Brody: Show's over for that guy. Sarah: Great job, guys!
(Soon, the four of them and Redbot are hiding the Ninja Nexus Prism.)
Redbot: Here are additional rocks. Do you need more? Brody: Uh, this will probably be enough. Redbot: I'll scan for Mick again. Brody: These rocks will keep the Prism hidden, at least until I can get back here to move it. Preston: So ten years ago your dad had the Ninja Steel in his workshop, and now these monsters are after it? Brody: That's right. But I plan to get it first. Preston: And Allsun, you're from a planet where everyone always tells the truth? Allsun: Yes, the planet Candor. Redbot: My scanners still show nothing. Brody: We'll just have to hope that Mick's okay. No one's gonna find the Prism here.
(The Ninja Nexus Prism is fully concealed by rocks.)
Sarah: So, what now? Brody: Thanks again for our help, but Allsun, Redbot. and I need to get going. Preston: What? What are you gonna do the next time you meet one of those monsters? Brody: Well, I guess-- Sarah: No, there's no way you're beating them on your own. Brody: Yeah, but I have to try. Sarah: No. We have to try. You can't do this alone. Preston: I'm with her. We're Power Rangers now, right? It seems like maybe the world is depending on us. So let's beat these creeps. Together. Sarah: Together.
(after a moment...)
Brody: Together. Redbot: Together. Allsun: together. Sarah: Okay, so where do we go first? Brody: Simple, to my old house. That's where the Ninja Steel is. I can't wait to see my brother Aiden again. Allsun: I wish I had family I could see again.
(suddenly, the Ninja Nexus Prism starts glowing under the rocks.)
Sarah: What the...?
(It emerges from it's concealment.)
Preston: Is it magic, or is it alive? Sarah: I'd say it's both.
(The Ninja Nexus Prism takes off for who knows where.)
Sarah: Whoa! Preston: Where did it go? Brody: I don't know, but there are still five Ninja Power Stars inside of it.
(On a road outside of Summer Cove, Nitro has broken down. Calvin is working on it. Kodi whimpers in the bed.
Hayley: Hold on, Kodi. Shouldn't be much longer.
(Calvin closes the hood and gets in the passenger seat.)
Calvin: Okay, so... Nitro's feeling much better, so she's gonna run just fine. (to Nitro) Aren't you, baby? Yes, you-- Hayley: You do know that I'm your girlfriend and that Nitro is just a truck. Calvin: Hey, shh. You're gonna hurt her feelings.
(Hayley chuckles. Suddenly, pieces of garbage from the Warrior Dome land all around
Calvin: Oh, gosh! Hayley; What in the world?
(Calvin and Hayley get out to investigate.)
Hayley: What is this stuff?
(The trash is covered in slime.)
Hayley: They don't look like parts from an airplane. Maybe a top-secret satellite? Calvin: Yeah, I guess. Or maybe... it's an alien! Hayley: Oh! Don't! I'm creeped out. Let's just clear the road so we can get out of here. Calvin: Yeah.
(Calvin approaches what looks like a boulder.)
Calvin: What is this?
(Calvin picks it up. It's light, and he kicks it out of the way, revealing it to be Mick.)
(Calvin and Hayley grab pieces of debris to defend themselves.)
Mick: Ow! You kicked me. Hayley: Stay back! Mick: Ah, sorry. I didn't mean to surprise anyone. Hayley: Who... or what are you? Mick: Uh, I'm Mick. Uh, head mechanic on the Warrior Dome.
(Calvin and Hayley are both confused.)
Mick: You know, where they film the intergalactic TV show "Galaxy Warriors." Hayley: "Galaxy Warriors"? Mick: "Galaxy Warriors." Uh, hello? It's only the number-one show in the universe. What galaxy have you been hiding in? Calvin: Uh, the Milky Way galaxy. Mick: Milky Way. Uh... Just between us, you guys are a little, uh... behind the times. Anyway, I got separated from my friend Brody. He's from right here. He's from on Earth. Brody! You know, Brody. Brody.
(Mick tries his Datacom.)
Mick: Brody, come in.
(all he gets is static.)
Mick: Oh, no. Must have broken when we jumped out of the ship. Calvin: Do you mean a space ship? Okay, what would make you do that? Mick: We were escaping monsters. Hayley: You mean alien monsters? Mick: Yeah. Hayley: You're kidding me? What kind? Mick: Well, uh, they were... big, uh, ugly, like, uh...
(Kodi starts barking.)
Mick: ...like them.
(A group of Kudabots have arrived.)
Mick: They're gonna take me back to the ship. Hayley: Um, maybe we can scare 'em off. Calvin: Yeah, yeah.
(Calvin clears his throat.)
Calvin (stammering): If you want a piece of him, then you're gonna have to... Hayley: Go through both of us. Calvin: Yeah! Mick: Yeah!
(Mick gets into Nitro for safety.)
Mick: Good luck.
(Calvin and Hayley start fighting the Kudabots. They manage to knock down two, disarming them. The pick up the spears and use them on two more.)
Hayley: Come on! Let's get out of here!
(Calvin and Hayley climb into Nitro, while Mick gets in the back with Kodi.)
Calvin: Come on, let's go.
(Hayley drives away. Ripcon arrives.(
Ripcon: You fools! They got away! But not for long.
(Up on the Warrior Dome...)
Galvanax: For 10 years, no monster could pull out the Ninja Power Stars, but three human teenagers and my Candorite servant did it, no problem at all? How?! Odious: I'm sorry, champ. I can't explain it.
Ripcon: My Kudabots found Mick, but he escaped with some human teenagers. Galvanax: More teenagers! The Earth is infested with them. Like cockroaches.
(Galvanax gets an idea.)
Galvanax: Wait. I know just how I'm going to destroy all these puny pests.
(Galvanax heads out onto the stage.)
Galvanax: Out of the way, Cosmo.
(Galvanax knocks Cosmo down.)
Galvanax: It's time for a new twist to our show. Any contestant that can destroy the Power Rangers and bring me their Ninja Power Stars becomes a "Galaxy Warriors" champion just like me.
(The crowd cheers. Down below, Nitro arrives at Summer Cove High.)
Calvin: Let's go 'round to the back entrance.
(Hayley drives Nitro into a parts yard.)
Hayley: This is shop class, where we build and fix things. Mick: Whoo-hoo! Calvin: There's plenty of tools in this class, so hopefully we can fix that wrist thing of yours. Mick: Hmm. Hayley: Mick, just try to... blend in. Mick: I could change into a tire. Calvin: No, no-no-no, no. Uh, not that kind of blend in, just act normal and no one will even notice you're here, okay?
(Hayley places a smock on Mick.)
Mick: Okay-doke. Calvin: Let's go.
(as they enter the shop class workspace, a woman walks over to Mick.)
Woman: You! You must be our new shop teacher. I'm Principal Hastings. Very nice to meet you. Mick: I'm Mick. Uh... very nice to meet you, too. Hastings: Now, I was disappointed to hear you were not going to take the job, but who can blame you? You know, I wouldn't want to spend all day in this... grease pit. But I suspect you're right at home. I'm glad you changed your mind.
(Principal Hastings starts to leave.)
Hastings: Good luck.
(Mick turns back to Calvin and Hayley.)
Mick: She thinks I'm you're... teacher? Calvin: Well--
(A car horn sounds. Victor drives his car out of the paint booth, parking on a hose. The pressure system begins to smoke.)
Victor: That'll do, Monty. We're all finished with the paint booth.
(Victor walks over to Mick.)
Victor: So... you're our new instructor. Mick: Well, I-- Victor: I'm Victor Vincent. Six-pack abs, impeccable teeth. Clearly... your top student. And I have just created a paint job almost as perfect-o as I am. Monty: Almost. Victor: I said "almost."
(A large bubble forms in the hose.)
Victor: Just look at the sleek lines. Check out the sweeping curves. Truly one of a kind.
(Mick notices the bubble in the hose.)
(Mick moves away as the hose bursts, splattering paint over Victor and Monty.)
Mick: Now you're three of a kind.
(Outside of Summer Cove, Brody, Allsun, Sarah and Preston have been searching the Romero home.)
Brody: Where could my brother be? Aiden! Aiden! Aiden! Redbot: My sensors detect no signs of life. Brody: He's gotta be here, I'm telling you. He wouldn't leave. Redbot: It's been 10 years. Aiden could be anywhere by now. Allsun: Redbot is correct. Given the size and geographic layout of your planet, there are far more places he could be than Redbot's scanners can reach. Sarah: Hey. Hey. You said your dad trained him to be a ninja too, right? Brody: Yeah. Sarah: If he's half as resourceful as you, I'm sure wherever he is, he's just fine. Preston: Uh, guys, Galvanax could be here at any time. We really need to find that Ninja Steel. Brody: You're right. I think I know where Aiden would have put it. I bet it's in my dad's workshop. This way. Sarah: Let's go.
(The group heads to Dane's workshop. Brody starts digging in the dirt floor.)
Brody: My dad buried this box as part of our ninja training. We had to find it...
(Preston pulls a tarp off a red truck.)
Preston: Whoa. Brody: ...blindfolded. That's my dad's truck. Preston: Oh. Sarah: So this is where your dad trained you and Aiden? Brody: Yeah. You know, people said my dad was the greatest ninja that ever lived. We wanted to grow up to be just like him. Preston: Then how did your dad find the Ninja Steel?
(Brody hands the shovel to Redbot.)
Brody: Thanks, Redbot. Redbot: No problem, Brody. Brody: One day, the prison fell like a meteorite. Right in our yard. It was encased in Ninja Steel. My dad chipped off the steel and discovered the Prism underneath. He was melting the Ninja Steel and forging it into special throwing stars. Then Galvanax showed up. My dad destroyed the Nexus Star... and disappeared. That was the last day I saw him... or my brother. Preston: I'm sorry, Brody.
(Redbot, who kept digging, strikes metal.)
Redbot: Oh, my motherboard, I found something! Brody: That's it. I knew it was here.
(Brody moves some dirt out of the way by hand.)
Brody: Quick, give me a hand.
(Brody and Preston pull the toolbox out of the hole. Brody opens it.)
Brody: Empty? Where's the Ninja Steel? Redbot: Where else would your brother have put it?
(Sarah sees something in the toolbox.)
Sarah: Wait. What's this?
(Sarah pulls out an old photograph of Dane, Aiden and Brody. Aiden is holding a trophy Dane had won.)
Brody: I remember this. Dad was so proud of that trophy. This must be a clue from Aiden.
(Back at Summer Cove High, Mick has been working on his Datacom.)
Mick: Ah, piece of space cake. Hayley: Guys... everyone's gone home. We're gonna have to leave soon. Mick: Let's hope it'll power up.
(Mick activates the Datacom, and smiles as it hums to life. Back at the Romero residence...)
Sarah: Hold on. Let me see that.
(Sarah takes the picture from Brody.)
Sarah: This trophy looks so familiar. Brody, what's your dad's name? Brody: Dane Romero.
(Sarah remembers seeing the trophy in the school's trophy case.)
Sarah: It's in the school trophy cabinet. I saw it this morning. Brody: That's it. Aiden must have hid the Ninja Steel inside the trophy.
(Redbot reaches up and plucks something out of the air.)
Brody: What is it, Redbot.? Redbot: It's a buzzcam. Allsun: Then it is safe to say Galvanax also knows where the Ninja Steel is now.
(Up on the Warrior Dome, indeed Galvanax does know.)
Galvanax: Gotcha. (into communicator) Send down a monster to get the Ninja Steel from that trophy.
(Just off stage...)
Cosmo (into communicator): Yes, sir.
(Cosmo heads onto the stage.)
Cosmo: Now let's see if Ripperrat can destroy the Rangers and get the Ninja 1Steel.
(Ripperrat, an armored alien with chainsaws on his hands, comes on stage.)
Ripperrat: I'm ready to rip!
(Ripperrat is teleported down to the surface.)
(Down below, Brody crushes the buzzcam under his foot.)
Brody: This isn't good. Galvanax knows where the Ninja Steel is.
(Brody's Datacom chirps.)
Brody: It's Mick. Allsun: Thank the Great Truuthsayer he lives. Mick (v/o): Brody, are you okay? Brody: I'm fine, but we're in trouble. We know where the Ninja Steel is, but so does Galvanax. And we need to get to the high school.
(At Summer Cove High...)
Mick: All right, we're on our way.
(Then Mick remembers where he is.)
Mick: Wait. I'm at the high school. Brody (v/o): What? That's great. Mick: Yeah. Brody (v/o): The Ninja Steel is in my dad's trophy. Sarah (v/o): It's front and center in the school trophy cabinet. Look for the name Dane Romero. Brody (v/o): Grab it and we'll come meet you. Mick: See you soon. Let's go.
(Mick, Calvin and Hayley head for the trophy cabinet. Brody, Allsun, Sarah, Preston and Redbot leave the Romero home, heading for Summer Cove High. Buzzcams have already arrived there.)
Cosmo (v/o: The show's about to begin!
(In the lobby...)
Mick: There it is.
(Mick grabs the trophy and tilts back the top, seeing a purple glow from inside.)
Mick: The Ninja Steel. Let's go meet Brody.
(They head out the front doors.)
Mick: Oh, which way?
(Ripperrat is waiting for them.)
Ripperrat: Ha ha! Gotcha! Give me the Ninja Steel, or else.
(Ripperrat launches two energy blades at Mick, knocking him down.)
(Calvin grabs a baseball bat, while Hayley picks up a tennis racket.)
Calvin: Batter up.
(Calvin and Hayley attack, but their blows do very little to Ripperrat.)
Ripperrat: You're out.
(Ripperrat forces them back.)
Ripperrat: I gave you a sporting chance. Now the game's over!
(The tennis racket has been broken, and the bat is bent, severely.)
Calvin: This bat's made of metal. Ripperrat: Ha ha! First the bat and now... your bones.
(Ripperrat knocks down Calvin and Hayley, to the delight of the Galaxy Warriors audience. he walks over to Mick.)
Ripperrat: Now hand over that trophy.
(Mick starts to get up, but Ripperrat keeps him down.)
Ripperrat: I see you want to do this the hard way.
(Ripperrat tries to strike Mick, who blocks it, at the expense of his newly fixed Datacom.)
Mick: My Datacom. Ripperrat: That's not all I'll destroy.
(Ripperrat is about to finish off Mick, when he is knocked away, by the Ninja Nexus Prism.)
Galvanax: The Prism! Get it, you fool!
(Back on the surface, Mick looks at the Prism.)
Mick: Oh, my. It's the yellow and white Power Stars. They're glowing. (to Calvin and Hayley) Grab the Power Stars.
(Confused, Calvin and Hayley reach into the prism.)
Calvin: Whoa. Is this really happening?
(They successfully pull out the stars. Calvin the Yellow Star and Hayley the White star.)
Hayley: I can't believe it. Calvin: Well, how in the world... Hayley: This is crazy.
(The Ninja Nexus Prism then spins away.)
Mick: Uh... ha. You pulled out the Ninja Power Stars. Well, do you know what that means? Calvin and Hayley: No.
(Brody and the others have arrived.)
Brody: I know. Mick: Brody. Allsun. Brody: It means you're Power Rangers. Sarah: Just like us. Hayley: Power what? Preston? What are you doing here? Preston: Calvin and Hayley? Sarah: Hi, I'm Sarah. I'm from out of town. Brody: I'm Brody from... out of space. Allsun: My name is Allsun. Allsun Trueseeker. I am from the planet Candor. Redbot: I'm Redbot. Ripperrat: And I'm Ripperrat. I'm gonna make you all pay for stealing from champion Galvanax. Brody: Just follow my lead. Calvin: Why? What's gonna happen? Preston: Even if he tells you, you won't believe it.
(Mick and Redbot move out of the way.)
Redbot: Hold on to your hard drive. Wait till you see this. Brody: It's morphing time.
(The Rangers summon their Morphers, much to the surprise of Calvin and Hayley.)
Brody: Lock your stars in.
(The Rangers place their Power Stars in the morphers.)
All: Ninja spin!
(The Rangers spin their stars, morphing into Ninja Power Rangers, the first morph for Calvin and Hayley.)
Calvin: You're right, Preston. I don't believe it. It's like I'm on nitro power. Hayley: What just happened to us? This feels wild.
Brody: Altogether now.
(The Rangers counter the charge. Up on the Warrior Dome...)
Galvanax: What? Six Power Rangers. Destroy those teenage pests!
(Down below, Brody attacks with his Ninja Star Blade.)
Hayley: Well, maybe our morphers have an attack mode.
(Hayley and Sarah hold up their Morphers, discovering a new configuration.)
Sarah: Whoa. You're right. Hayley: Let's see what they can do. Sarah: Great idea. Both: Battle Morpher. Bow mode.
(Extensions flip out of their morphers, making them into bows.)
Sarah: Brody. Brody: What? Sarah: Move!
(Brody moves out of the way.)
Sarah and Hayley: Arrow blast.
(The two girls fire, striking Ripperrat.)
Ripperrat: You're gonna pay for that. In pain!
(Calvin and Preston have also found new modes.)
Calvin: Battle Morpher, blade mode.
(A sword blade pops out.)
Calvin: Blades Slash. Ripperrat: That won't stop me! Preston: I bet Claw Mode will.
(With two claws parallel to each other, Preston attacks from above.)
Preston: Claw strike!
(Ripperrat is knocked down. Brody readies his Ninja Star Blade.)
Brody: Red Ninja strike. Steel Slash. Ninja Spin. Final attack!
(Brody delivers a devastating Ninja Streak attack.)
Ripperrat: I struck out!
Brody: Show's over. Ninjas win.
(Up on the Warrior Dome...)
Galvanax: The show's not over yet.
(On stage, two Kudabots roll a device out.)
Cosmo: Should we give Ripperrat one more chance?
(The crowd cheers, an applause meter shows fireworks.)
(Cosmo hits a blue button on the device, and a purple beam is fired at the surface.)
Calvin: Nice move, Brody. Hayley: Yeah, impressive. Allsun: I did not get to discover an attack mode in my Morpher.) Brody: Next time, Allsun.
(Suddenly Ripperrat is revived.)
Sarah: Brody: He's being gigantified. Ripperrat: Thought you'd seen the last of me, huh? Preston: Oh, it's massive.
(Thankfully, Ripperrat is not as dangerous as he was at normal size.)
Ripperrat: Wait, my chain arms aren't working. Calvin: His weapons are jammed.
(The Ninja Nexus Prism returns.)
Brody: Wow, the Prism. It's showing us... a vision.
(The Prism shows six attack units.)
Sarah: What are those things? Mick: If the legends are true... those are your Zords. Brody: Zords?
(Mick opens the trophy.)
Brody: Throwing Stars? Those are the ones my dad made.
(Mick throws six stars into the Prism. They begin to change.)
Preston: Wow! What's happening? Brody: We're about to find out.
(The Prism launches the stars. Each Ranger catches one.)
Calvin: Whoa. Cool! Mick: I think you're about to meet your Zords. Brody: Zord Stars, lock in.
(Brody places his Zord Star in his Ninja Star Blade.)
(The others follow Brody's lead.)
Rangers (minus Brody): Lock in. Activate. Rangers: Ninja Spin! Brody: Ninja Steel Zords, out of the shadows.
(The six Zord appear from various concealments. From inside a building comes a Zord that looks like Redbot. A large kite becomes a Dragon. A concealed road panel reveals a giant truck. A high speed train becomes a high speed Zord. And from out of that high seed Zord comes a giant dog. Finally, a large silver frog hops out of a large lake.)
Calvin: Whoa, look at that! Those are our Zords. Brody: Wait for me.
(Brody leaps into his Zord.)
Brody: You look like Redbot. I'll call you Robo Red Zord.
(The others leap into their own Zords.)
Preston: A Dragon Zord? It's like magic. Sarah: This train is so fast. It's definitely a Zoom Zord. Calvin: Nothing's gonna mess with my Nitro Zord. Hayley: It's like my dog Kodi. A Kodiak Zord. Allsun: And this reminds me of my lost Hopperoing. A Hopper Zord.
(The Zords arrived just in time.)
Ripperrat: My chains are working!
(Ripperrat launches two Energy blades.)
Brody: Look out!
(Red RoboZord dodges the attack.)
Brody: Nice moves. Ripperrat: Get back here!
(Ripperrat keeps attacking, but Red RoboZord keeps dodging.)
Ripperrat: Stop moving! Brody: Too slow. Ripperrat: This'll stop you from darting away.
(Ripperrat throws several darts at Red RoboZord.)
Brody: Think again.
(Red RoboZord slams on the concealed panel in the street, using it to block the darts. When it lowers, NitroZord is ready to attack.)
Ripperrat: Huh? You wanna play? Fine!
(A payload of spiked caltrops are ejected from NitroZord.)
Calvin: Watch your feet.
Ripperrat: Ow! Ow! Sarah: Hey, you rotten rodent. Fetch!
(Zoom Zord launches some throwing stars at Ripperrat.)
Hayley: Oh, no! Don't say fetch.
(Kodiak Zord grabs the stars before they can hit Ripperrat.)
Ripperrat: Good dog. Sarah: Sorry. My bad.
(Zoom Zord catches Kodiak Zord.)
Brody: Good one, Sarah.
(Red RoboZord falls over.)
Ripperrat: Nice trip?
(Ripperrat backs Red RoboZord against the side of a building.)
Ripperrat: Who's laughing now? Preston: Me, fire breath.
(The Dragon Zord forces Ripperrat back with flames.)
Brody: Thanks, Preston. Allsun: My turn.
(HopperZord leaps off a building, landing on Ripperrat's head, then down to the ground, stunning Ripperrat in the process.)
Preston: Now let's finish him off. Rangers: Ninja Blaster, final attack!
(All six Zords fire lasers at Ripperrat.)
Ripperrat: Not again!
Brody: Ninjas win.
(On the warrior Dome...)
Cosmo: Looks like Summer Cove is now rat-free. See you next week.
(Later, at Summer Cove High, the Ninja Nexus Prism, and various other items are brought into the shop class area.)
Brody: Park the Prism over here, Redbot. That's the last of it. Sarah: We have got to find a place to hide this stuff before school starts tomorrow morning. Allsun: What is school?
(Calvin and Hayley come out of the paint booth.)
Calvin: Guys, it's perfect. Let's use the paint booth as our hideout. Preston: That's great, but what happens when people want to... you know, paint? Hayley: They can't. The spray system broke today. It's officially... out of order.
(Hayley hangs an Out of Order sign on the paint booth door.)
Calvin: Yeah, and Principal Hastings made Mick our new shop teacher, so no one's gonna question a thing. It's genius. Brody: Looks like I finally get to go to high school. Mick: Yeah. Me too. Allsun: I as raised by Galvanax since I was three. I have had no true education. Especially in the ways of Earth. Brody: Don't worry, Allsun, well help you. First lesson, not everyone here is as honest as you are. You cant tell anyone we're the Power Rangers. Allsun: Do not worry, Brody. While I may always tell the truth, I do not have to tell all the truth. There is one thing I have learned from Galvanax, it is how to change the subject. Brody: Hey, I need to say thanks for saving us today. I only wanted to hide the Prism and find my brother. At least I got half of that done. But, uh, anyways, I'm sorry. Getting you all involved, that was an accident. Mick: I don't think it was an accident. For years, I've heard legends of the Ninja Nexus Prism, that it holds great mysteries... fantastic power. I'd say that it knew that Galvanax was a threat to the universe and it chose the six of you to be Power Rangers. Calvin: So it's our job to save the Earth? Brody: I guess so. Hayley: Well, great. Then let's get to work. Mick: Okay-dokey. If that is our secret base... ...we're gonna need secret entrances! Calvin: Yeah!
(Sarah looks at the Prism.)
Sarah: Brody? Mick: Oh, this is gonna take some building. Sarah: Didn't you say that there were nine Ninja Power Stars? 'Cause we only pulled out six. Brody: You're right. The other stars are gone. Before the Prism came back to us, someone must have pulled them out. Sarah: But who?
(Up on the Warrior Dome...)
Cosmo: What a show! What a show! Hey there, looking good. What a show!
(Galvanax walks through the corridors.)
Cosmo: Champ, the audience loves the Power Rangers. Our ratings are sky high. Galvanax: Fool! I don't care about ratings. Those Power Stars will be mine. Cosmo: Of course they will be, champ. How silly of me.
(As Galvanax and Cosmo leave, Madame Odious comes out of a hidden chamber.)
Odious: Hmm. We'll see. The gold Power Star is already mine.
(Indeed, Madame Odious is already holding the Gold Star.)
(In the paint booth at Summer Cove High, Redbot is looking at the Ninja Nexus Prism.)
Brody: What are you thinking about, Redbot? Redbot: Where the two missing stars could be. Allsun: The obvious answer would be, they were pulled, just as we pulled out our own power starts. Preston: Yeah, that is obvious. Mick: The bigger question would be, who pulled them.
(A spark flies from the device on Allsun's wrist.)
Brody: Is there something wrong with your Datacom? Allsun: It was hit by a blast from a Kudabot while we escaped from the Warrior Dome. Mick: Let me see if I can fix it.
(Allsun takes off the device and hands it to Mick.)
Allsun: I wish to go learn more about Earth. Brody: Sure. Calvin: You might want to wear a hat or something. Hayley: Yeah. Your blue hair might draw unwanted attention. We aren't in Gray Lake, you know. Brody: Gray Lake? Preston: That must have been after you were abducted. Sarah: I came prepared for this. I bought something for Allsun.
(Sarah hands Allsun a baseball cap.)
Allsun: Thank you, Sarah.
(Allsun puts on the cap, with a little help from Brody, then leaves the paint booth. Up on the Warrior Dome...)
Galvanax: My former servant is alone. A perfect chance to reclaim him and take his power star. Ripcon: I'll have Cosmo find someone to go after him, champ.
(On the stage...)
Cosmo: We've got a special round for this week's episode. If our contestant, Mosquitro, can not only bring Galvanax the Silver Power Star, but also the Silver Ranger himself, we will automatically become Galaxy Warriors champion, and win a brand new space coupe.
(An image of a small, luxurious space craft appears on the monitor.)
Mosquitro: I've always wanted a taste of Candorite blood.
(Mosquitro is teleported to Summer Cove, as the Buzz Cams are deployed. In a park near Summer Cove High, Allsun sits by a lake, watching some ducks.)
Allsun (thinking): This reminds me of where I found Hooperoing. He was a good pet.
(Back at the high school...)
Redbot: We're picking up Buzz Cam activity near here. Brody: And since Allsun doesn't have his Datacom, he could be in trouble. Let's go.
(The Rangers head out of the paint booth. Back in the park, Mosquitro appears behind a distracted Allsun.)
Mosquitro (thinking): This will be so easy.
(Mosquitro grabs Allsun, and bites him.)
Allsun: What are you? Mosquitro: I'm the one who's taking you back to the Warrior Dome. You might be a little easier to handle in a few minutes.
(The other Rangers arrive.)
Brody: Let go of him, you big pest! Mosquitro: Ooh, more snacks. If I bring in all your Power Stars, I might get a bigger ship.
(Mosquitro drops Allsun and goes after the other Rangers. Mosquitro bites Sarah first.)
Mosquitro: I'll be coming back for seconds. You taste sweet. Sarah: I should have put on some insect repellent.
(Mosquitro then bites Preston, before delivering kicks to Calvin and Hayley. Suddenly, smoke fills the area, making it hard to see anything.)
Brody: What's going on? A forest fire? Preston: Not enough smoke for that.
(A shadowy figure speeds into the smoke, pulling out a sword, and slashes Mosquitro with it.)
Mosquitro: Ouch. Who called an exterminator?
(There's a flash of light for a second, surrounding the figure, and the figure's moves change, and it starts flipping around, sweeping Mosquitro off his feet. When he falls down, the smoke starts clearing, showing what the figure is; another Ranger, in Green.)
Preston: Another Ranger? Brody: Guess hes the one who pulled that tri-colored star.
(The Green Ranger pulls a power star out and places it in his sword. They don't say anything, and spins the star. Their body gets covered in light for a moment, as it changes to a Black Ranger. They glance at the other Rangers, then throws something onto the ground, making smoke appear again. The Ranger disappears.)
Brody: Even my Dad would be impressed with this guy, and he was the world's greatest ninja. Mosquitro: I was only told to expect six Rangers. And nothing about one who changes color.
(Mosquitro flees. Brody rushes to check on Allsun.)
Brody: Allsun, are you alright? Allsun: I feel strange. Brody: We'd better get you back to the base. Preston, Sarah, you two OK? Preston: Just a little weak, Like I just gave blood. Sarah: Yeah, me too. Brody: I'll help Allsun. Calvin, Hayley, help Preston and Sarah if they need it. Calvin: Right.
(The Rangers head back to the school. Redbot and Mick already have a medical table ready for Allsun.)
Redbot: I hope he's alright. Mick: If not, I hope you're programmed with medical skills. Redbot: Not really.
(Brody places Allsun on the table.)
Mick: Good thing we have a medical scanner. Why Galvanax thought it was junk, I don't know. Voice: So this is where you guys have a base. You're not being that subtle. And you call yourselves ninjas. Preston: Who's there? I know you're not Victor or Monty.
(The Black Ranger from before comes out of hiding, using a traditional deception cloth, where he was hiding against the wall. The cloth disappears.)
Brody: That was epic. Black Ranger: You guys have no right to be calling yourselves ninjas. You're all amateurs. Brody: I'm not. My father trained me and my brother. Maybe you've heard of him. Dane Romero. Black Ranger: He's not that great of a ninja himself. He's too much in the spotlight. A real ninja doesn't show off his greatness. Sarah: He's right. I read that in a book, written by a prominent martial artist. Black Ranger: Ninjas use their mind and their tools to get out of situations more than they do fighting battles head-on. Not because they're not capable of fighting head-on, but because it's nindo. The way of the Ninja. Brody: My Dad didn't get around to that. Then again, I was only 8. Black Ranger: Then you have no right to be saying that you're not an amateur. You didn't train enough. Calvin: Not to be rude or anything, but.. It's kind of uncomfortable to be talking to you while you're morphed.
(The Black Ranger says nothing. He pulls his power star off his sword, and his suit changes color to Brown for a split second, before he demorphs.)
Brody: So, who are you? Man: My name is Joe Jackson. I've been taught the ninja arts since I was young, like you. But I didn't shirk my duties. I was doing one of my daily meditations in the woods, when I heard a crash nearby, so I checked it out. I found that.
(Joe points to the Nexus Prism.)
Joe: And it had this (hold up his power star) inside it. Brody: It's not my fault. My dad disappeared, and I was abducted by aliens. Joe: That sounds like a harsh life. But that doesn't excuse the fact that you're still trying to teach others ninja arts without proper training yourself for years. Brody: If you knew what we're up against, you might feel differently. That mosquito thing was nothing, compared to Galvanax. Joe: I can already figure it's bad. Otherwise, I wouldn't have found this star. I feel like that maybe it's because I'm meant to help you, but not only helping you fight them, but also help you train. Preston: Well Brody? Another Ninja around here couldn't hurt. And he does have the power star. Brody: Well, he seems a little rude to me. Joe: I'm only telling you the truth of the situation. (pauses) But first, we need to stop that monster. I'm going to gather his bite is what's making the Pink, Blue and Silver Rangers sick. Mick: Uh, it's not just making Allsun sick. It's changing his DNA. At least, I think it is. Joe: I've heard of this before. There was another team of Ninja Rangers, that was more hidden than you guys have been, that fought a similar monster. Its bite was turning one of them into an off-shoot of its species. I believe their only way to cure him was to defeat it. Mick: Well. it's only changing Allsun. Preston and Sarah seem fine. It could be related to him being... you know. Joe: No, they'll be changing as well. It might only be acting quicker on Allsun because of his alien blood. Calvin: Wait, how did you.. Joe: I've been monitoring you guys for far longer than just before fighting that monster. Hayley: OK, now I'm creeped out. Joe: It wasn't meant to be seen that way. I was trying to make sure I could trust any of you first before I revealed myself. Sarah: I guess that makes sense. Mick: Well, according to this, Allsun is not 100% Candorite. He's currently 98% Candorite, 1% unknown, and... Brody: And what? Mick: 1% Minutiaeian. Joe: That unknown percent is probably our monster's DNA. And it's probably going to start multiplying far faster than it would in a normal Earth host. Brody: So, we need to find that mosquito and swat him, fast. Joe: I imagine we won't be able to find them that easily. Brody: They probably went back to the Warrior Dome. We need to lure them out of hiding. Joe: I may have an idea, but I'm not sure if you can do this technique that well. Brody: What technique? Joe: The technique of disguises. A true ninja doesn't need to use the power of a ninja star. Sarah: I guess we'll have to learn it.
(Allsun starts moving.)
Allsun: They are after me. Galvanax wants me back. Use me as bait, and then attack the creature. Joe: No. We don't need to use you as bait. That's why we're going to use the disguise technique. You won't have to be there at all. Redbot: Mick and I will make sure he stays here while you guys train. Joe: Honestly, we might not have enough time to train for this right now. We don't know how long Allsun will have. So I'll have to do this myself. You guys just observe. Brody: Fine. As long as you stop talking trash about my Dad. Joe: That can be settled later. We have more pressing matters.
(Joe moves his hands in front of his chest into a prayer stance, before he starts moving his hands, making different signs with it. After he's done, he points one of his hands down towards the ground, and smoke covers Joe's surrounding, making it hard to see him for a second. When the smoke clear, a spitting image of Allsun is standing there.)
Calvin: Whoa, I'm seeing double. Hayley: We all are. "Allsun": I'll head out in this disguise, acting like Allsun, like he hasn't been bitten, to make it seem like the bite didn't do anything. While I do this, you guys will need to keep out of sight. When the alien shows, that'll be when you show up. Brody: Alright. I've got just the trick for that.
(Up on the Warrior Dome...)
Galvanax: Where is my servant? Mosquitro: I have bitten him. Within one Earth day, he will come back to you, or his transformation will be irreversible. Voice: I wouldn't not trust him to deliver. Galvanax: Who speaks?
(Two androids appear, one masculine, one feminine.)
Male Android: Our master will gladly make sure you receive what is yours. Female Android: All he asks in return is 100 credits. Galvanax: And who is your master? Male Android: Dugal Bant. Ripcon: I've heard of him. A mercenary. Supposedly has his own Ranger-like form. Galvanax: He may be worth keeping around. If he can deliver what you promise, I will pay him 500 credits a week to stay with my crew. Female Android: We will pass that offer on to him.
(The two androids teleport away. Down on the surface, "Allsun" starts to walk out in the open. He just walks like he would be if he wasn't bitten. The other Rangers are nearby, concealed completely. Not even a Buzz-Cam would see them. But Buzz-Cams do see "Allsun".)
Cosmo: Uh, if this bug supposedly bit him, why is he walking around like nothing happened? Mosquitro: Impossible. My bite should have started his transformation immediately. Galvanax: Then get down there and bite him again, before the mercenary beats you to him.
(Mosquitro returns to the surface. "Allsun" is still walking in one direction. Mosquitro appears, accompanied by four Kudabots.)
Mosquitro: I don't know how you're still normal, but you won't be for long. "Allsun": It's simple for how I'm still normal.
("Allsun" does the hand signals from earlier, and points to the ground, with smoke covering the area. The smoke clears for him to change back into Joe.)
Joe: I'm not the person you're looking for. Mosquitro: You tricked me. That's why I didn't come alone. Kudabots, attack! Joe: You should've brought more.
(Joe attacks the Kudabots, without any weapons, showing his martial arts. He's taking them down rather easily. The other Rangers appear, hidden in plain sight behind a curtain of invisibility.)
Brody: Now, we can take care of you, and save Allsun.
(The four Rangers attack Mosquitro. Joe easily finishes dispatching the Kudabots.)
Mosquitro: I'm still hungry.
(Mosquitro grabs Sarah, ready to bite her.)
Joe: Enough of this.
(Joe pulls out a shuriken and throws it, hitting Mosquitro. Joe then takes out his ninja star and morpher. Mosquitro lets go of Sarah, trying to remove the shuriken. Joe places his ninja star onto the morpher.)
Joe: Ninja spin.
(Joe morphs, into the Brown Ninja Steel Ranger. He charges at Mosquitro with his sword, and slashes at him. Mosquitro fights back, wielding a sword of his own, that looks like his nose.)
Mosquitro: My sword is just as sharp as my bite.
(Joe says nothing. Instead, he presses a button on his sword, which makes a light shine over his body. When it dies down, his suit has become a Black Ranger, and seconds later, he seems to have disappeared from view.)
Mosquitro: I may not be able to see you, but I can still sniff you out.
(Mosquitro lowers his sword to start smelling around. Joe suddenly reappears behind Mosquitro, as he stabs toward him with his sword.)
Mosquitro: No fair, stabbing a guy in the back. Joe: I'm a ninja. If you're trying to find fair in a battle, then you're fighting the wrong enemy.
(Up on the Warrior Dome...)
Cosmo: He wants an unfair fight. Should we give it to him?
(The crowd applauds.)
(Down below, Mosquitro suddenly grows to giant size.)
Mosquitro: Try stabbing me with that tooth pick now. Joe: I will do one better.
(Joe presses a button on his sword, before he does some hand signals. Moments later, Joe himself is enlarged.)
Preston: He doesn't even need a Zord to fight gigantified monsters.
(Joe starts attacking Mosquitro again. Mosquitro blocks with his sword.)
Mosquitro: The bigger the target, the bigger the meal. Joe: The bigger the mosquito, the easier it is to swat.
(Joe's sword starts to glow, as he holds it with both hands. The sword starts to double in length.)
Mosquitro: I wish my sword could do that, But, I can do this.
(Mosquitro starts to try and stomp on the other Rangers. Joe's sword stops glowing, but it gets covered in a blue fire. He slashes the sword as Mosquitro. Mosquitro's sword is broken by the attack.)
Mosquitro: I've been exterminated.
(Mosquitro explodes. Joe's sword changes back to normal, as Joe falls down to one knee, before shrinking back to normal.)
Brody: Show's over, Ninjas win.
(Joe seems to be fatigued, but he stands back up and demorphs.)
Brody: We'd better get him back to the base so he can rest. Joe; I'm fine. That technique seems to be something only I can do with the ninja star I was given. I did not get the luxury of acquiring a zord like you have. Preston: Maybe the Ninja Nexus Prism can make one for you? Like it did for us. Joe: No. The ninja star gave me this ability for a reason. It's telling me to use my natural ninja abilities to its fullest. Gaining a zord won't help with that. The only downside with using the ability is that I only have a short amount of time to use it, before I must rest for awhile until I can use it again. Brody: Well, if you're part of the team you wont have to go through full battles like that. We'll be able to help you with our Zords. Joe: I know. But in this case, it was a quick battle. I had to think of what I could do quickly. But, in any case. (to Sarah) Are you alright? Sarah: Yeah. That thing didn't bite me, thankfully. Joe: That's good. Now, we should go see how the real Allsun is. Brody: Yeah. I've known him since Galvanax grabbed me, a decade ago. He had already been there three years by that point. Joe: I have a feeling, though, that the targeting of Allsun might not be over with. This Mosquitro person did seem to specifically be going after him at first. It seems like you guys were just secondary. Brody: He was Galvanax's personal servant. Cleaning his quarters, polishing the Galaxy Warriors championship belt, tasting his meals. That's why he wants him back. Joe: Or it could be something else. But right now, we should only be worried about his well being. Let's go.
(The Rangers return to the base.)
Redbot: How's Allsun's scan look now, Mick? Mick: I'd say he's back to normal. 99% Candorite, 1% Minutiaeian. Joe: I'd imagine that would've happened anyway. Its good that he's back to normal. Now we just need to figure out who is after him. I don't believe it is Galvanax. At least not for a personal reason. Redbot: From what I know of Candorites, there's only one possibility. Someone from the planet Calumny. Joe: Perhaps it would be best to explain? I'm not an expert on alien species. Redbot: Candor and Calumny are sister planets, having similar orbits around the same star. Both worlds are relatively close to Minutiae. While Candorites always tell the truth, Calumnians are the exact opposite. They never tell the truth. They have to wear special translation devices to communicate with other worlds. Joe: Sounds like it would be very hard to tell when they're being straight, then. Redbot: Exactly. It's also believed that every Candorite has a counterpart from Calumny, and if they ever met, their lives would become intertwined. Their thoughts, their emotions, they would feel each other's pain. Allsun: I heard such stories from my father, before Galvanax killed him, Joe: So, what you're saying is, the two races can have a symbiotic relationship if they get too close, but one takes over the other? Redbot: I wouldn't say symbiotic. That would imply mutual benefits. More like two minds connected to each other. There has been no proof of this happening in any Candorite records, only tales from before it's recorded history. Joe: If it's true, though, that does sound problematic. I suggest if this mystery alien is from this Calumny planet, that we don't take the chance and make sure they don't get too close to Allsun. Brody: We don't even know what they look like. So, we keep every alien Galvanax sends down away from Allsun? He wont make for a good Ranger then. Joe: Considering the planet is a sister planet, I could only guess that the people living there looks similar to Allsun and his people. So, in other words, if there's any people working for Galvanax that look human, it's probably them. Mick: Good point, The only humanoids there we ever saw on the Warrior Dome were the three of us. Joe: So, in other words, we don't actually have to make sure he stays away from all aliens. Although, we should still probably watch out all the same.
(One of the computers beeps.)
Redbot: This is odd. There are two androids that just appeared relatively close to the school. Calvin: How exactly would you know if they are androids? Joe: I don't think that really matters. I doubt having something like this happen is normal, so I can guess it's not a good thing. I suggest we use the secret entrance through the junkyard to confront them. Preston: Wait, you know about that too? Joe: Do you have to ask? Sarah: Since it's just androids, it should be safe for Allsun to come. Joe: Unless it's to lull us into a trap. Brody: That's possible. These androids could work for the Calumnian. Allsun: Perhaps I should wait here, and let Mick and Redbot run more tests on me, after my experience with the monster. Calvin: Sounds like a good idea to me. Joe: Agreed. Brody: Let's go. Allsun: Be careful, my friends.
(The other Rangers leave, as Redbot begins to run more scans on Allsun. About half a mile from the high school, the same androids who met with Galvanax are waiting. After a few moments, the Rangers arrive, already morphed. Joe seems missing. Like his first appearance, he's decided to come in stealthily.)
Male Android: Scanning. Female Android: No Candorite life signs present. Male Android: You will surrender the Candorite to our master, the great Dugal Bant. Female Android: In return, he will spare your world. Calvin: Looks like Joe was right. This was a trap set up for Allsun. Brody: Surely, he cant have a weapon powerful enough to destroy Earth. Hayley: Can we risk it?
Electronic voice: Maz, Zena, stand down. I have something else to deal with these interlopers. Preston: Who was that? Their "master"? Sarah: Probably.
(A Ranger-like figure appears in front of them. His appearance is similar to the androids. A large box is with him.)
Calvin: (whispering to the others) I hope Joe knows what he's doing staying back like this.
(The figure says nothing, and opens the box. A short, gorilla-like creature walks out. It is barely three feet tall.)
Preston: That's not much of a threat,
(The figure presses a button. A beam is fired from inside the box, causing the creature to grow to nine feet tall.)
Preston: Now that's a threat. Calvin: Great, now we're fighting King Kong.
(Suddenly, smoke fills the area. Joe shows up behind the figure and two androids, in his Black Ranger form, and stealthily tries to attack them with his sword. The androids teleport away.)
Figure (electronic voice): Destroy them,
(The creature charges at the Rangers, knocking Sarah into a tree with one blow. She's forced to power down. The figure takes note of her. His attention is fixed on her that he doesn't notice Joe's approach. Joe slashes his sword towards the figure from behind. Sparks fly from the figure's armor.)
Figure: (normal voice): That felt pleasant. I should thank you for that. Joe: Thank you for confirming who you are to us. No one would feel "pleasant" after that, unless they're a masochist.
(The figure aims a blaster at Joe.)
Figure: I will tickle you,, mildly. Joe: I'm going to bet you don't mean you'll actually be "tickling" me. Either way, bring it on.
(The figure fires, just missing Joe by inches. The blast hits a large rock, reducing it to pebble.)
Joe: You missed. If you think destroying a rock is supposed to impress me, or make me cower, you don't know me. Figure: Keep talking and keep moving.
(The figure adjusts his aim and fires again. Joe waits until the blast gets close, and he moves at almost lightning speed and deflects the blast with his sword. It bounces back towards the figure, hitting the ground between his feet.)
Figure; I've seen better.
(The figure fires five more blasts. Joe deflects four of the blast coming to him, having them hit the ground around were he's standing. He actively dodges one of the blasts.)
Joe: I hope firing a gun isn't your only option of defense, because you suck at it. Figure: It is.
(The figure presses a button. The box the creature emerged from is replaced, by a bomb.)
Joe: Can't handle losing, so you bring a bomb to a fight? I think it's time I get more serious.
(Joe places a ninja star into his sword, and spins it. His suit changes from Black to Green.)
Joe: You better be ready for me.
(Joe rushes towards the figure, as he heads towards the bomb. The figure leaps into the air, and hovers, thanks to an anti-gravity unit in his armor. Meanwhile, the creature is still attacking the other Rangers, throwing Preston into the air.)
Preston: I heard the phrase "monkeying around" a lot, but this is ridiculous. Does someone have a banana? Brody: I haven't seen a banana since before Galvanax took me. And I don't know if this thing would settle for a banana. Calvin: As long as it doesn't mistake me for one.
(Joe ignores the figure for the moment, heading for the bomb. He moves faster than usual in his Green Ranger form. The bomb is counting down using unknown numbers. Joe looks at the bomb for the moment, not knowing what the numbers are. He grabs another ninja star and places it into his sword and spins it, changing his form again to his default color of Brown. He then checks to see if it's safe to move the bomb. The bomb has a small vial of green liquid on the side. If it is moved, and the liquid shifts, it will explode early.)
Joe: (thinking) I have no idea what these numbers are, or how this bomb is constructed. I may have to ask for help. (outloud so the others can hear) Brody, I'll need your help over here. Brody: If I can get past the Great Not so Grape Ape over here.
(Another person arrives)
Quinto: Go. I think I can handle him, with your help. Brody: I don't know who you are, but if you can help, OK.
(Brody leaps past the creature, heading over to the bomb and Joe. Quinto pulls out a Ninja Star)
Quinto: I hope this works. Ninja Spin! Rainbow Ranger Power!
Quinto: Well, that worked...
(At the bomb..)
Joe: This is a bomb of obvious alien design. I doubt you know of how it works, but considering you lived in an alien ship with an alien and a robot of alien origin, maybe you can get in contact with them. Brody: My Datacom might know.
(Brody uses his Datacom to scan the bomb.)
Datacom: Device is manufactured in a region controlled by the Electric Empire. The countdown uses Elnarian numbers, and has a plasmonic motion sensor for early detonation if disturbed. The countdown currently reads 5 minutes, 36 seconds in Earth time. Joe: I have no idea what most of those words you said meant, but now we know how much time we have left. But it would be better to know how to disable it. Datacom: Electric Empire made explosives are vulnerable to Sodium Chloride hydrogen dioxide. Brody: What's that? Sarah (weak) Salt water. Joe: Too bad we're not close enough to the ocean. Brody: The ocean is miles away. And we cant move this thing. Mick (v/o): Allsun's Zord could get the salt water needed. But, he'd be at risk of contact with the Calumnian. Joe: We may have to chance it. Brody and I will have to keep the "master" busy so he doesn't try to go for Allsun. Allsun (v/o): I am on my way.
(The figure hovers closer to Sarah. Joe notices what's going on.)
Joe: We might not have to keep him distracted that easily. But we should do it anyway. Just be wary of disturbing the bomb. Figure: I have many times seen something so hideous. Sarah: Did he just insult me?
(Joe rushes over.)
Joe: Remember, his words are lies. So, in other words, he means the opposite. Sarah: Id say I'm flattered, but, given the circumstances, I'm not.
(The figure lands and deactivates his armor. Aside from his fiery red hair, he's a dead ringer for Allsun.)
Joe: So it seems I was right. Although, I wasn't expecting him to be so identical. Figure: I shall leave you behind as garbage.
(The figure starts to reach for Sarah.)
Joe: I can only guess he means "I'm going to take you as a trophy". That would be the opposite of that statement.
(Sarah starts to back away, as the Creature charges at Quinto.)
Joe: We need to keep him busy. Brody, give me a hand. Hopefully the others can handle that creature. Brody: Right.
(Joe starts to move to intercept the figure from reaching Sarah. Brody follows Joe. The ground shakes slightly.)
Calvin: What a lousy time for an earthquake. Quinto: A little help? I know I am just new, but I can tell you how I got my star later. Preston: We're trying to help you. That creature is just faster than we are.
Joe: (thinking) That shake just now.. wasn't an earthquake.
(Joe doesn't say anything, but he attempts to attack the figure. There is another shake, and a large thud, about half a mile away. And then, a stream of water hits the bomb. It starts to spark.)
Quinto: That can't be good.
(The bomb shuts down.)
(The figure takes his frustrations out on Joe and Brody, fighting them with ferocity. Joe's trying to deflect the attacks as best as he can.)
Joe: Your words are easy to interpret, so I'll just say it's very possible. Figure: I'll revive you!
(The figure pulls a knife from his belt.)
Joe: What a temper. And that's why you'll lose. Figure: I always lose!
(The figure scratches Brody with the knife. He's forced to power down.)
Brody: Ow. That burned me through my suit. Joe: That's because it's not a normal knife. It must be coated with poison. Datacom: Knife is made of unknown metal, which seems capable of scratching even Ninja Steel. Joe: That Datacom of yours does come in handy sometimes. I imagine you can't morph right now because of it. Brody: Maybe.
Allsun: Did the water work?
(He sees the figure.)
Allsun: That red hair. The legends are true. He's my Calumnian counterpart. If I make contact with him, the legends say our lives will be forever intertwined.
(Joe noticed Allsun, and tries to keep the figure busy, so he doesn't notice him. The figure tries to slash Joe, harder than he did Brody. He uses his other hand to press buttons on a control panel on his belt. Joe makes his sword appear to block the slash, hoping that's enough. The sword and knife clash in a shower of sparks, causing the figure to turn away. His androids reappear, on either side of Sarah. Joe is too occupied currently to notice the androids. He's hoping that he's keeping the figure busy enough so that he doesn't see Allsun.)
Figure (to androids): Release her. Male Android: Yes, Master. Joe: (notices) Enough of this.
(Joe puts his main ninja star on his sword.)
Joe: Ninja Spin.
(Joe spins the ninja star, changing into the Black Ranger. He then throws a smoke bomb onto the ground. He hopes the smoke will keep the figure distracted enough so that he can stop the androids. The figure coughs from the smoke. He reactivates his armor, but needs a few moments for his scanners to adjust. Joe rushes towards the androids, but he doesn't attack them. Instead, he goes to pull Sarah out of the way.)
Sarah: Thanks. That creep needs to get over me. Joe: Don't mention it. Go help the others with that ape creature. I have a feeling you'll help them turn the tide some. Brody and I can handle this guy and his androids. Sarah: Right.
(The ape creature is within inches of grabbing Quinto.)
Quinto: Dang, he's too close.
(Quinto tries to get out of the way.)
Sarah: All four of us, attack together.
(Sarah, Preston, Calvin and Hayley attack the ape creature. Quinto tries to help in the attack. The creature whines like a scolded puppy. It has never had to fight five at once.)
Quinto: Thanks. Preston: You're obviously a Ranger, so that makes you one of us.
Figure: I'll start this.
(The figure Drops a small orb, before he and his androids vanish. Joe moves back over to where Brody is, as his form changes back to the default Brown. He then looks at the orb the figure dropped.)
Joe: This guy really seems to love dropping "gifts".
(The orb begins to spray out a strange red gas.)
Joe: Great, another thing to worry about. Brody, use your Datacom to figure out what this is. Allsun, be prepared to use your zord again. We might need it. Brody: Right. Datacom: Gas is a level 7 toxin, developed as a weapon by the Troobian empire. It is lethal to all carbon-based life forms within one terrestrial mile of it's source. After that, it loses it's potency. Joe: Maybe we can contain it. Get something solid to cover the orb up, so it stays here, like a glass dome or something. Brody: A glass dome. I don't know where we'd get anything like that. Joe: Doesn't have to be glass specifically. Just anything that doesn't have any holes. An enclosed space. Brody: What about a bucket? I saw one in the parts yard.
(The creature, having seen the gas before, and knowing how dangerous it is, flees the fight,)
Joe: Get that bucket. We need to make sure it doesn't seep out too much. If we have to, we'll have to use our ninja powers to push the excess away from civilians. Brody: Right.
(Brody Ninja Streaks back to the high school.)
Allsun: I have seen a gas like this. When I was five. Galvanax used it to punish a village on a planet he raided for Ninja Steel. Joe: Then you know what will happen if it comes in contact with people. And I'm guessing it's not good, just from the fact who's using it. Allsun: Indeed. The bodies were horribly disfigured. If they survived, they would have been in great pain. Joe: It's a good thing we're morphed, then. (pauses) Wait.. Brody wasn't morphed.. Allsun: He could have been exposed. I do not wish to lose the first person I could call a friend. Joe: Let's not jump to conclusions just yet. Allsun: If you had seen what this gas does, as I have, you would be worried about Brody. Joe: There's nothing we can do right now about it. But I do have an idea if he's afflicted. We'll talk about it later, though.
(Brody returns with a plastic bucket,)
Brody: I hope this works. Joe: Yes.. let's hope.
(Joe tries placing the bucket over the orb, trying to block the gas from expanding.)
Joe: I'll have to keep the bucket down. You guys handle any gas that remains. Brody, you might want to stand back. Brody: O... K...
Allsun: Oh no. Joe: Now we can worry. Allsun, take him back to the base. We'll be there when we're done. Allsun: I shall.
(Allsun picks up Brody, and uses his Datacom.)
Brody: Mick, Redbot, prepare for a medical emergency. Brody ha inhaled toxic gas. Redbot (v/0): Suffering circuits.
(Allsun leaves with Brody.)
Quinto: You guys have to show me where this place is. Sarah: Once this gas is no longer a threat. Quinto: Sure, I can wait.
(Quinto helps with the gas.)
Preston: I hope these helmets have good filters. Sarah: If I had a chance to look them over, I would.
(Joe keeps holding the bucket down over the orb.)
Joe: Looks like the bucket seems to be working. I don't see any gas coming out. Calvin: That's good. Hayley: Good thing it's not a bucket with a pour spout.
(Joe tries to move himself closer to the bucket, and is listening for sounds inside, to check if the orb is done exhuming gas. There is no sound coming from the orb, but the bucket is now filled with the gas.)
Joe: Alright guys, get ready. The orb doesn't seem to be dispersing anymore gas, so I'm going to lift the bucket. Preston: How do we get rid of it? Sarah: Brody's Datacom said it has an effective range of one mile. The school is further than that, but, there's a park nearby. Joe: I guess none of you learned how to use the elements yet. If that's the case, I might have to do this myself. Calvin: Not yet, Hayley: I think Brody was going to teach us that soon. Joe: Alright. Calvin, take over holding the bucket down. When I say now, lift the bucket. Calvin: OK.
(Calvin moves over to the bucket and holds it down.)
Calvin: If anything happens to me, Hayley... Hayley: Yes? Calvin: Take good care of Nitro.
(Joe puts his hands in a prayer position, and he starts making signs with them.)
(Calvin lifts the bucket. Joe thrusts his hands in the direction of the gas, and a strong gust of wind flies out, turning into a small tornado. It picks the gas up, and starts heading into the sky.)
Preston: Now that's a magic trick Joe: It's the power of the elements. A high ninjitsu skill. Something I learned before getting my ninja star. Sarah: I hope Brody gets a chance to teach us how to do that. Joe: Now that we're done here, let's head back to base. (to Quinto) I don't know who you are, but thank you for the help. If you are a friend, you're welcome to join us. Quinto: I am. And I promise to keep any secrets. Sarah: Then, follow us. And hope it's not too late for Brody. Joe: As I said, i have a plan. We'll talk about it when we get back.
(The Rangers start back for the base. Quinto follows the others. Up in orbit, the figure is working on repairing his translator.)
Male Android: We did not mean to fail you, Master Dugal. Female Android: You have not desired a female in a few years. I promise we will obtain her for you.
(The figure, Dugal says nothing. He just keeps working. Not long after, the Rangers return to the base. Mick and Redbot are tending to Brody. Allsun sits by himself.)
Joe: How's Brody? Mick: I wish I knew. The Datacom doesn't have any information on the progression of exposure. Allsun: The victims I saw took about two hours from first exposure to their ends. Joe: That should hopefully be plenty of time for my idea. (pauses) But, Sarah will have to be on board for it. Sarah: Let me guess. I have to let our friend think I was exposed? Since he seems fixated on me. Joe: Not exactly. I'm going to use the camouflage ninjitsu on you and Brody. You'll look like Brody, and he'll look like you. It'll only last about a hour, but it should be enough for them to think you were exposed instead of Brody. Sarah: If I look like Brody, then he wont be trying to grab me again/ Alright, I'll do it. Allsun: And if he can see through the disguise? His ship or that armor he wear could have advanced scanners? I am not a technical expert, but I know the Warrior Dome's scanners were considered high end. Joe: Considering they didn't notice when I was being you earlier, I don't think they can detect it. Allsun: A valid point. Joe: (to Mick) Is Brody conscious? Mick: Barely. Joe: Alright.
(Joe walks over.)
Joe: Brody, can you hear me? Brody (weak): Yeah. Joe: We're going to get you cured. Just don't panic, and trust me. Brody (weak): OK. Joe: Sarah, come over here. In order for this to work, you'll have to hold Brody's hand. It's the only way I can use the power on another person. They have to be touching the person they're copying. Sarah: Alright.
(Sarah walks over and holds Brody's hand. Joe starts making hand signals, but he points downwards around Sarah's feet. A small packet of smoke covers where Sarah and Brody are. When it starts to disperse, it looks like their positions were swapped.)
Joe: Remember, it only lasts an hour. And try not to talk, especially in front of the enemy. It doesn't camouflage your voice. "Brody": I fell like I should say "Epic". Wow, you're right. I do still sound like myself. "Brody": I'm ready. Joe: Brody, I hope you heard what we said. Try not to talk.
Joe: Let's do this.
(Joe sits "Sarah" up.)
"Brody" Do you need help carrying him outside? Joe: Yeah, but it might be best if someone else helps. (pauses) And before it's said, Allsun should stay here. If that guy can recognize you, who knows what his plan might be. He might decide to not help at all. Allsun: Of course. Preston: I'll help. Joe: Thanks Preston.
(Joe and Preston carry "Sarah" out of the base. The rest of them follow.)
Allsun: I will see if Mick has made any progress on my Datacom.
(After a bit, the Rangers find an open area away from the school and where they fought last.)
Joe: Now we wait. Hopefully they don't take too long to notice.
(Dugal teleports down. He has fixed his translator.)
Dugal (electronic voice): So, my lovely was the one who inhaled my parting gift. Joe: You sound different. I can only guess you're using something so you don't always talk in lies. Dugal (electronic voice): That is none of your concern. I can save her, for a price. Joe: Oh, come on. We already know that you fancy her. You're not fooling anyone. Dugal: That is my price. She must return to my ship with me. Joe: Give her the cure first, and let her decide. Maybe she'll thank you by doing just that. But she can't really make that decision right now, and we're not inclined to make that decision for her. Dugal: Very well.
(Dugal presses a button on his wrist. A small vial of blue liquid appears.)
Dugal: If she was exposed more than 75 of your planet's minutes ago, it cannot help her. Joe: I don't think it's been that long. Might've been close to 60 minutes, though. Dugal: Then she will be safe.
(Dugal uses a magnetic beam to give the vial to Joe.)
Joe: Does she just have to ingest this? Dugal: Yes. Joe: (thinking) Let's hope it works. (outloud) Sarah, open your mouth.
(Joe winks out of eyesight to "Sarah" to let him know he's talking to him. "Sarah" opens her mouth.)
Dugal: Sarah. On my world, that means "Fragrant flower".
(Joe pours the liquid into "Sarah's" mouth. "Sarah" swallows it. "She" starts to feel better.)
Joe: It seems to be working. Now, "Sarah", what do you say about this guy's proposal? "Sarah": No way. Dugal: What? Joe: You heard "her".
(Joe uses hand signs to make the camouflage disappear early, as he enacted it. Brody and Sarah are back to normal.)
Dugal: You deceived a Calumnian? Very few have done that and lived. In fact, only one of you will. Joe: You haven't met many ninjas in your time, have you? Dugal: No, just one. His name was Lothor. Joe: I'm surprised he didn't deceive you, then, considering I do believe he deceived many. Dugal: Well, I was very young at the time. No more than three Earth years old. Joe: Either way, the difference between him and us is that he deceived others for his own selfish goals. Dugal: He would have fit in perfectly on Calumny.
(Dugal takes out he same dagger he used earlier.)
Joe: I supposed there's no way to talk you out of doing what you're doing. Just remember that it was you who started this. Dugal: There is one way. The one called Sarah leaves with me. Joe: No chance. Considering you don't have any leverage over us now, you have nothing to make demands for. Dugal: This blade says otherwise. Brody: He's right, Joe. Remember what that thing did to me. Forced me to power down, and burned me through my suit. Joe: He'd have to hit us with it for it to work. Dugal: That I can do easily.
(Dugal attaches a small propulsion system to the dagger's hilt.)
Preston: A remote controlled flying dagger? Joe: I find it rather hard to believe you want to harm Sarah, considering your unwanted attraction to her. I know you said that you'd do so earlier, but I don't think you'd actually chance it. Dugal: As I said, only one of you would live.
(Dugal releases the dagger. It flies around like a hummingbird.)
Joe: If that's the case, then I know what we should do.
(Joe quickly throws a smoke bomb onto the ground, covering the area. While the smoke is there, Joe quietly got the Rangers together in a huddle.)
Dugal: Clever. I cannot see where to aim, so I dare not risk damaging her. Joe: (whispering to the others) Alright guys, we're going to protect Sarah. But how we're going to do it is likely not going to shock you considering what we've done twice already. Sarah, take my hand.
(Quinto is listening.)
Sarah (whispered): Another fake-out?
(Joe nods. After he and Sarah are holding hands, Joe uses his other hand to make hand signals. Moments later, the smoke clears the area. The Rangers appear to be protecting Sarah, with her standing in the middle, with the others circling her.)
Dugal: That circle wont save you. My blade will bleed the six of you out, leaving my prize unharmed. Brody: Get ready, guys. Try and deflect that blade with your Morphers. Preston: You got it, Brody. Calvin: If he's going after one of us, he'll have to go through all of us.
(Joe appears to say nothing, but nods. Quinto nods. The Dagger flies towards Hayley, with Dugal considering her the weakest of the group.)
(Calvin uses his morpher to block the dagger as best as he can.)
Hayley: Thanks, Calvin.
(The dagger starts moving faster, but Calvin's strike damaged the propulsion unit. Dugal can no longer accurately aim it.)
Voice: Guys, enough!
(The voice comes from Sarah in the middle.)
Sarah: I'll.. go with him. Dugal: A wise decision.
(The dagger drops to the ground. Sarah starts to walk towards Dugal.)
Preston: Sarah, don't do it! Sarah: There's no other way. Brody: She's doing it to save us. We can always try to rescue her later.
(Sarah reaches Dugal.)
Dugal: Now, my pretty, I will take you to my vessel, where your new life will begin.
(Sarah seems to be ready to go, but instead, she suddenly kicks Dugal into the chest to knock him down. Dugal doubles over before falling to the ground.)
Sarah: (voice changes) Sorry, change of plans.
(Sarah shimmers for a second, and makes a sign with her hand. It's revealed that Sarah was Joe the whole time. The Joe with the others changes back to Sarah.)
Joe: Rather hard for you to fight us now when I'm this close. Dugal (catching breath): You've merely delayed the inevitable.
(Zena appears behind Sarah. and cuts off a lock of her hair.)
Joe: I guess we'll see about that, won't we? Dugal: I have what I wanted.
(Dugal and the android teleport back to his ship. Joe returns back over to the others.)
Preston: I don't like what he just said before he left. What did he get?
Sarah: I felt something touch my hair. Joe: I think we should be thankful it's over for now. Whatever he's planning, we'll be ready for him next time. Brody: Yeah. Let's get back to base. We still need to find out how you (pointing at Quinto) found your star. Joe: And I have something to say as well. But I'll wait until everyone is around to listen. Quinto: I will let the experienced ninja go first.
(The Rangers head back to Summer Cove High. Allsun is waiting in the parts yard.)
Allsun: A well fought battle, my friends. But, if deception is indeed part of the way of the Ninja, I wonder how good a Ninja I will be, since I can incapable of deception. Joe: It's actually only one part. It can be a pretty vital part, but it's not the only part that matters. Ninjas do deception, but only when they have no choice in the matter. The biggest role a ninja will always have is to fight in the shadows. Of course, with the way things are right now, it's literally impossible to follow that entirely. Brody: Let's get inside, then you can say what you have to say.
(Joe just nods. They all go inside, where Mick and Redbot are waiting.)
Mick: No one got poisoned this time? That's good. Brody: We're all safe and sound, Mick. Joe: I think before I say what i want to say, we should let him go first.
(Joe gestures to Quinto.)
Preston: OK, how'd you get your star? Quinto: Odd as it seems, I just saw this thing a few days ago, and got my star. Didn't think anything about it, except the odd shape of it. Brody: The Ninja Nexus Prism. It must have found you after it found Calvin and Hayley. Quinto: I see. I have been training a bit, thanks to my grandfather. He was a ninja when he was younger. Joe: Now that is out of the way, I have something to say.
(Joe gives the others a respectful bow)
Joe: I want to apologize to all of you for how I acted when I first met you guys earlier. My former master told me I can be pretty arrogant, and my arrogance is what I was using to show off that I was better than all of you. But I can see now that even though you're still learning, that you all have the potential to be strong ninjas. Brody: And with you helping me teach them, I know we'll have a team that will be ready to take on Galvanax. Joe: Yeah. (pauses) There's just one more thing. My friends.. call me JJ. And I don't mind if any of you do the same. But if we're in training, try to be respectful and not use it. Brody: No problem.
(Up in orbit, on Dugal's ship, Zena hands him the lock of hair she took from Sarah.)
Android: Here you are, master. Dugal: Thank you, Zena.
(Dugal sniffs the hair.)
Dugal: While I continue to work on my translator, find me a cloner.
