December 4th, 2015,
With the city all blacked out, the Silver Guardians had carefully driven through any car that had stopped or crashed, or any other obstacle that had been toppled from the crisis of the darkness. After half an hour of traversing through the darkness, the convoy had finally reached the power plant. Stopping at the front of the complex’s gate, everyone had exited the vehicles. From one of the cars, the Megaforce Rangers had come out from both sides of the back, followed by Wes and Eric from the front. The soldiers all gathered in a straight horizontal formation as they crouched down and aimed their guns at the entrance. The two leaders grouped with the Megaforce Rangers.
“Boy, they sure know how to cut the power to this place.” Wes poked fun at the current situation, but Eric was not amused.
“Come on, Wes.” he complained. “Even at a time like this you find humour? Makes me wonder why you’re in charge with me instead of just me in charge.”
“Aw, lighten up, Eric.” Putting aside the ranting, the two then looked to the Megaforce Rangers again, ready to initiate their plan to act against whatever had put the power out.
“But Eric’s right though.” Wes said with a serious tone. “Once we get in there, we have to keep our eyes open, even if we have no lights to brighten up the subject.”
“No matter what, we’ll be ready, Wes.” Troy assured.
“So how are we going to do this?” asked Emma.
“First things first. We split up into five groups. The Silver Guardians will take three of them. Eric.” Wes turned to Eric. “You and I will take a small number of our men.”
“Understood.” Eric complied with a nod. Without wasting time, Eric walked away and went to assign the men he needed to join them. Wes then turned his attention to the young teenagers.
“You guys will stick together as another group. Your powers will be more effective when you’re all one.”
“Not a bad idea, sir.” agreed Jake.
“You can just call me, Wes, Jake.” Wes offered. “Alright then. Let’s get this show on the road.” He then walked for the groups of Silver Guardians already separated and formed up. The Megaforce team followed him. “Teams, listen up. You have been separated into your respective groups. Team One.” He pointed out to the leftmost team of the bunch. “You will check the left powerhouse. Team Two.” Next, he directed the team next to them, and so on and so forth. “You guys will scout at the power lines. See if any damage was done there. Team Three, you’re with me and Eric.” Finally, Wes finished his briefing as he faced the Megaforce Rangers. “You will be Team Four. Check the power generators. Judging by how slowly the power was put out in the city, there could be a leak or drainage in the power source.”
“Got it.” acknowledged Troy.
“Okay. You know your jobs. Remember. If you see any X-Borgs or other creeps we should be worried about, attack on sight. Teams. Make ready.” With his directions, all of the teams stood at the ready, waiting for the word to move right in to where the action will take place. “Team Four, time to morph.”
The Megaforce Rangers each pulled their Gosei-shaped Morphers and summoned their Power Cards. They pulled out the mouth of the Morpher and inserted their Cards in.
“GO GO MEGAFORCE!” Pressing down the mouths, the Morphers then transformed the five Rangers into their signature Ranger Modes. They made their battle poses in front of their superiors.
“Well, looks like they’re ready to go.” Eric said.
“Okay men.” Wes made sure his men were all formed up and awaiting further orders. Wes and Eric returned to their team while the Rangers followed. “You know what to do. Find out what happened to the power in this place and come back out. Any X-Borg in sight, report to us. If you find yourselves under fire, do what you can to hold them off. This place is so quiet now that the slightest sound could mean trouble.”
“Okay. Let’s move out. Go!” At Eric’s orders, the Silver Guardians all hustled and walked in through the entrance. Wes and Eric followed suit.
“Good luck you guys.” wished Wes as he looked at the Megaforce Rangers before walking off.
“We’ll keep in touch.” said Emma. With the Silver Guardians out of sight, the Rangers were next to move out.
“Alright guys. Let’s head out. Stick together and we’ll make it out on top.” addressed Troy to his teammates. “Let’s go.”
“Right!” And so, off they went, into the dark and inactive power plant, ready for whatever threats that may lie ahead.
Into the plant, the Megaforce team maintained their visual as they travelled into the facility. Though they tried their best to find any leads to how the power went out, the pitch black darkness did not seem to be helping very much. There was absolutely no lighting for them to see clearly. They could at least faintly see where they were going, but they really needed some way to illuminate the darkness around them.
“Man, this place sure is… spooky.” Jake shivered as the cold and quietness was starting to give him the chills inside and out.
“We really some light here.” Troy pondered. “Who knows when we are going to be ambushed?”
“Hang on.” Just then, Noah had come up with sudden realization in his voice. “We do have something else. Check this out!”
He reached for his helmet and pressed a small button behind it on the right side. The Rangers couldn’t see it, but when Noah had pressed on the button, his helmet visor had two metal slides coming out from the rims. Between the visors, the now narrow black screen had phased into a bright red colour. It was then that the others noticed the change.
“Wow!” admired Gia.
“What is that?” asked Jake.
“I call it the Thermal Visor Mode.” explained Noah. “It will give us infra-red vision that can detect heat signatures given off by any living organism, such as us and the X-Borgs. In other words, we can see anyone in the dark. Unless they’re cold-blooded. I had Tommy help me out with the tech.”
“Do we all have one?” asked Emma.
“Sure. You guys now have the Thermal Visor Mode too. Just find a button behind the right side of your helmets”
With the Rangers blind in the dark, all they could do was try and feel for any bump that could make for a button. Once they have found one each, they pushed the bumps down. Feeling the bumps actually going down, they could also feel their helmets slowly shaking as their visors started to close down. After that, the visors had changed from the clear and transparent glass look to a digital-looking red screen. As they looked around, they could see orange and blue figures around them.
“Whoa!” Troy was the first to react to this sudden change. “I can see you guys now.”
“More like seeing our heat.” added Emma.
“Hey, Gia!” Jake called. “You’re sure looking ‘hot’ tonight!”
“Haha.” Gia laughed sarcastically. “Very funny, Joker.”
“Right. Now that we have Thermal Visor Mode, we can find anyone in the thickest of darkness. Just make sure to watch out for any suspicious heat signatures.” Noah directed.
“You got it, Noah.” answered Jake.
“Okay then. Let’s get it going now.” Troy ordered. Now with the ability to see in the dark with their new Thermal Visor Modes, the Rangers had felt a little more relieved. Although the visors couldn’t let them identify intimate objects, they made no waste of time scanning the area for any heat sources given off by X-Borgs or any other possible threat.
Soon, the Rangers, with the help of their new technology, had reached the interior of a structure. They checked and checked, hoping to stumble upon an enemy force and find a way to bring the power back to the city. However, the passing minutes of search have not yielded any findings. The facility had all seemed untouched. Not a single sign of damage, other than the loss of the power itself. Inside the building, they continued their search. But even here, again, they couldn’t find anything.
“Aw man. Nothing in here either.” complained Jake.
“There’s gotta be something to find around here.” added Gia.
“Gosh, this is just like finding a needle in a haystack…” said Emma. “…but with the haystack in the middle of the night.”
“Just keep searching, guys.” assured Troy as they made way to the middle of the large room. “We still got a lot of this place to check out.”
“Look!” Noah had suddenly called out to his fellow Rangers. “Over there!” Everyone else followed to where Noah was pointing at. They looked there, and to their surprise. There was another orange and blue humanoid figure within their sights just outside the doors leading to the exit. It was simply walking by in an orderly manner, as if it was on patrol. Its structure was distinctively human-like. And it probably would be a human if it were not for a very noticeable odd feature.
“Good eyes, Noah.” commented Troy. “That sure looks like an X-Borg to me.”
“Of course.” said Jake. “I thought it was one of the Silver Guardians, but do Silver Guardians were barrels on their heads?”
“Let’s go follow it.” The Rangers quickly but quietly sneaked their way towards the exit, making sure not to alert the X-Borg. Once there, they peeped behind the door and saw the signature again as it was marching away from them.
“Where do you think it is going?” wondered Gia.
“Well, at least we know that the Empire has something to do with this blackout.” Noah reasoned.
“Maybe we should follow him. We’ll be bound to get closer to wherever he’s going.” suggested Emma.
“Good idea, Emma.” remarked Troy. “But let’s go slowly. We don’t want to attract too much attention.”
“Right.” The team complied. Slowly, coming out of the door, the five Rangers crept towards the unsuspecting minion. They sneaked behind, coming behind one solid object to another. They followed the X-Borg through its patrol path. From where they first saw the X-Borg, it then turned left, away from their sights. They quickly followed it, moving along the opposite building walls. They turned at the corner, where the X-Borg was once again walking away with its back against them.
“I’m just glad these X-Borgs aren’t so observant.” joked Gia.
“Aren’t we all glad?” added Emma.
“Let’s keep it up.” The Rangers then continued to tail the X-Borg to wherever it may take them.
From that point on, the Rangers had followed the X-Borg through the power plant, hiding and creeping up at the same time. To add up to things, the Rangers eventually found yet another X-Borg. Then, they found another. And another. The team began to piece together that the more X-Borgs there were, the closer they were getting towards the possible source of the problems.
Soon, they arrived at yet another building. This time, they were able to find that some X-Borgs were guarding the front doors, standing at both sides of the entrance with weapons at their disposal. Thus, the Rangers were able to deduce that whatever was in there, the X-Borgs seem to be very protective about it. They gathered behind a power generator. Unbeknownst to them, there was a small set of three holes below them on the generator, coupled with a burnt mark around it.
“This looks like the place.” whispered Noah.
“But what is in there?” asked Emma. They also noticed that the interior of the building was flashing with a bluish white light.
“Whatever it is, it must be really important.” added Gia.
“We need to take a closer look.” suggested Troy, inching a little away from his hiding spot. “Come on. Let’s check it out.” One by one, the Rangers sneaked towards the building. They made their way to the side of the building where it was covered in a thick shadow.
The two guards, meanwhile, were continuing to watch out at the doors, while the flashing inside continued. They turned their heads here and there, scanning the perimeter for any intruders. However, as one looked away, little did they know that a group of sneaky little Rangers were lurking towards them in the shadows. Once the Rangers disappeared into the dark part, the guard had turned towards where they had crossed through, only to find nothing there. Facing forward, the two of them stayed at their positions.
The left X-Borg had suddenly been knocked down to the ground, unconscious. Behind it, there was a white glove wrapped in a fist. That fist belonged to the Blue Megaforce Ranger, who had appeared right out of the shadows.
The falling sound of the X-Borg had caught the attention of its comrade, who had turned towards Noah, alerted to its presence…
…a little too late…
Soon, it too had been taken down by the combined might of the Pink and Yellow Rangers, who had jumped down from the building and pinned the soldier down; their hands holding down his head to the concrete ground.
With both guards down, the Rangers, including Troy and Jake, who both had emerged from the shadowy part behind Noah, gathered outside the building.
“That takes care of them.” gloated Jake.
“Okay guys.” Troy said. “How about we see what this little light show is all about?” The others nodded as they sneaked into the building. Fortunately, there were piles of large crates right behind the doors. They hid behind them and crouched down.
Slowly making their way along the piles the moment they went in, they could hear some jolts and fizzes, as well as a few chuckles with a very familiar voice. The flashing was still happening, but this time, it was brighter with each strobe. Heading deeper into the building, they stopped at the corner and Troy peeped over the crates.
Then, they were able to see the source of the flashing.
“Guys.” Troy called quietly. “Look.” The other Rangers soon popped their heads out slightly. They too had a glimpse of what was happening inside the building.
“HAHAHAHA!!!” Soon, the scene was rocked by the joyous but mischievous laughter of an alien; someone who the Rangers had dreaded to see again.
“Jestino…” Troy uttered. Right there, they could see the General watching another alien Commander sucking in electricity from a power box, using his large tentacles connected to his right arm. With them, two lines of X-Borgs stood on both sides of them. The tentacle monster was eagerly draining all the power from the box as Jestino couldn’t help but dance for joy.
“Hahaha!” he chuckled. “Keep on eating, Tezar, my friend. Soon, with enough power, you will be able to attack the city, even without the X-Borgs. Not even the Power Rangers’ little Megazord would be able to stop you! WAAHAHAHAAHA!”
The Rangers were witnessing a theft of power that had been depleting the city of its much needed power. The source of the problem at hand was in sight.
“So that’s how the blackout happened.” whispered Emma.
“Jestino has been playing with his little tricks again.” added Jake.
“That Commander must be draining the power of this place.” deduced Noah. “And then, he will use it to invade the city. If we don’t stop him, the Gosei Great Megazord won’t stand a chance.”
“But how are we going to take that guy on?” wondered Gia with worry. “He’s gotta like a thousand volts of pure shocking terror all over him.” Noah looked up again, studying the monster they would be facing. He pressed another button on the right side of his helmet. From his visor, he could see a flowing stream of blue waves passing towards Tezar. He then scanned for the plugs at the end of the wires, inserted into the box.
“From the looks of things, that monster seems to have the ability to suck in huge amounts of energy. Those tentacles could easily drain the energy from our Powers as well. If we’re not careful, we could be Power-less Rangers.”
“Any ideas?” asked Emma, dropping back down behind the crates. Troy was still looking at the action happening. He was formulating a plan to settle this theft and bring power back to the city. Then, he sat back down to join the others. He brought them together in a circle, as they lent their ears to their leader.
“I got one.”
Meanwhile, the monster was having a blast just devouring the energy from the power box. Jestino was watching the feast with awe as more and more power was being given to Tezar.
“This is magnificent!” he gloated. “All this power gone and not a single sight of those pathetic Power Punks! Hehehehe!”
“Guess again, Jestino!”
“Huh?!” Jestino had jumped in pure shock when he heard the sudden call of a loud and tough man. He and Tezar turned around to find a dreadful sight.
“You!” And that sight was a team of teenagers in multicoloured suits. They were the Megaforce Rangers.
“That’s right, Jestino.” said Troy.
“You know, you gotta watch what you say, dude.” teased Jake. “Cause’ you really tend to get jinxed a lot.”
“Hmph!” Jestino snorted as he stomped his foot. “You Rangers just don’t know when to just let things slide, do you? What’s the matter? Afraid of the dark? Oooh, you poor children.”
“Please tell me he did not call us children!” Gia slammed her fist to her other palm with fury.
“Well look who’s dressed for a children’s party!” Noah ranted back.
“Sure. Call me a clown why don’t ‘ya? So then I guess I shall entertain you. Just sit back as you witness the light show of the new millennium of the Empire’s new rule of Earth!”
“Sorry, but we don’t want any tickets.” joked Jake.
“Too bad then. Because I would have given you the shock of your life. Oh no matter. I still have a little something for you to remember me by. Tezar! Destroy them!”
“With pleasure, boss!” After finally finishing what seemed to be minutes of an electric dinner, Tezar had detached his plugs from the power box and turned around to face the Rangers, while the X-Borgs surrounding them had gathered behind him. The Rangers made ready with their battle stances.
“Careful, guys.” warned Troy. “Just remember what I planned.”
“You Rangers are doomed now!” taunted Tezar. Soon, the abnormal monster began to charge up with all of the power he had consumed and focused it all into his hands.
“We’ll see about that! Ready?!” Troy looked to his teammates, ready to unleash his plan.
“Everyone! Combine weapons!” At Troy’s call, the Rangers caused a Power Card each to phase at their hands. They placed their Cards into their Morphers and shut them in.
“Summoning Battle Gear!” A low and deep Gosei voice called out as, in front of the Rangers, there were multiple weapons teleported in the air. The Rangers grabbed hold of these signature weapons and prepared themselves to move on to the next phase.
“Dragon Sword!” Troy unleashed a red sword with a silver-tipped blade that resembled a dragon’s tail.
“Phoenix Shot!” Emma drew out a flat and wide blaster with pink and gold highlights.
“Snake Axe!” Then, Jake summoned a large black axe with a very sharp and long curved blade.
“Tiger Claw!” Gia took out a yellow weapon with a pair of silver fang-like pincers.
“Shark Bowgun!” Finally, Noah pulled out a crossbow-like weapon that resembled that of a shark.
With the five weapons summoned, the Rangers joined forces by linking their weapons together. Troy locked his Dragon Sword into Emma’s Phoenix Shot together as the sword’s hilt locked into the blaster’s front to become a longer sword. Emma and Jake’s weapons were linked onto both sides of Noah’s Shark Bowgun, forming a larger gun.
Finally, the two new weapons are finally combined into one. Now, what the Rangers was an even mightier weapon that required all five Rangers to man and fire. The Rangers grabbed hold of the weapon together and aimed at the still-charging enemy.
Tezar was about to finish up charging and ready to shoot out his ultimate attack, but the Rangers had one more trick up their sleeves.
“Sky Power! Energize!” Both Troy and Emma took out their Power Cards and placed them onto their respective weapon components.
“Land Power! Energize!” Then, it was Gia and Jake who placed their Cards onto their parts of the weapon.
“Sea Power! Energize!” Lastly, Noah placed his Power Card onto the Bowgun part, completing the process. With all the Cards in place, they then siphoned power into the blaster and directed it into the front barrel, forming an energy orb at it. At this point, the Rangers would fire this energy at their enemies and completely obliterate them. However…
“Alright, guys. Stay put…” Instead of firing the projectile, Troy had the Rangers just remain where they were and kept the weapon at bay. It has now come to an intense stare down between Tezar’s electrifying charge-up and the Rangers’ ethereal energy.
“Now what is this all about?” wondered Jestino. “A little shootout at the “Not-So-Okay-Corral?”
“Just wait for it guys.” But Troy was not the least distracted. He and the Rangers focused on keeping their energy blast powered up to the fullest. On the other side, Tezar was almost ready to unleash his move, causing some worry to the other Rangers.
“Uh, Troy.” called Jake, clearly getting nervous. “Are… you sure this is going to work?”
“Just trust me, Jake.” Troy assured. “He’s not going to know what hit him.” And the waiting continued. The Rangers kept aiming at the monster, but had shown no sign of attacking back. It was seemingly clear to Jestino and Tezar that the Rangers were wasting valuable time.
“It’s no use. You’re just simply wasting all that energy and once Tezar has his attack at your puny weapon, he will be more powerful that you can ever handle!”
“Wait.” Suddenly, doubt had finally reached one of the Rangers. “He’s right.” But what Noah was feeling at that moment was slowly draining away the much needed energy of their Blaster. “If we keep this up, he will suck in this projectile and be invincible. The cannon’s firepower had slowly decreased as the orb at the barrel slowly degenerated.
“Troy.” called Emma. “I really don’t think this plan will work.” And it was Emma’s hesitance that depleted the orb even more. Soon, even Gia and Jake started getting more and more worried. This depletion of faith and hope has started to affect the Rangers’ weapon power, up to the point that the orb was as big as a golf ball.
“Hahaha!” laughed Jestino. “You see. You’re just losing precious energy. And even if it isn’t enough to supplement his hunger, Tezar’s energy wave will sure to vaporize you!”
But the orb had not faded away yet.
“Guys, come on!” Troy exclaimed. “You gotta trust me on this. We can’t make this work if we don’t have enough faith in ourselves. I need your power! It’s our only chance!” Troy’s desperation had started to become evident, much to Jestino’s amusement. It seems that the Rangers were about to give up on their attempt, and thus, their downfall seemed imminent.
“Guys, Troy’s right.” Then, when it all seemed to be coming to an end, Noah had somehow snapped out of his hesitation and started to rally up his fellow Rangers. “If we can’t put more trust in ourselves, we won’t be able to go anywhere.”
“Yeah.” added Gia, with her spirits also high. “We have always pulled together through thick and thin.”
“And that’s how we come out on top!” shouted Jake cheerfully.
“I say…” Finally, Emma was the last to call. “Let’s give it our best shot!” With all of the Rangers finally back to their senses, Troy was elated and was ready to continue charging his weapon again. With the power of the Rangers restored, the energy orb returned to its biggest size.
“Pfft. Even if your little therapy session worked out for you, there’s no way you can stop Tezar from eating your energy!” Jestino chuckled.
“I don’t think so! Come at us then!” Troy yelled at the monster, allowing him to make the first move. Jestino could not hold in his excitement, seeing the Rangers foolishly making the biggest mistake of their lives.
Then, Tezar stomped his foot down, grabbed up all the energy he could muster and aimed at the Rangers’ Megaforce Blaster.
“Steady…” But despite the intensity of the monster’s fury, Troy and the others did not falter. They stood perfectly determined and still as they awaited the Commander’s attack. “Steady…”
It was a jubilant moment for Jestino as he was fanning himself from all the drama and action that will conclude in the Rangers’ destruction.
“Yes! Yes! Do it, Tezar. Blow them out of their miserable lives! HAHAHAHA!!!”
Finally, after filling his attack with great power, Tezar clenched his fists and pushed them right out, firing a large energy blast heading right for the Rangers. And the Rangers’ still refused to act. There was no stopping this projectile in its path to finally put an end to the Power Rangers.
Then, in an instant, the projectile hit the Rangers’ weapon head on. However, there was no explosion. There was only a warping sound coming from the Megaforce Blaster.
The Rangers could only hold on tight to their weapon and push back the deadly force. A stream of energy continued to push them back as it was hitting their own energy with full force.
At Tezar’s side, the monster had somehow stopped his energy blast. When the energy beam faded away, the monster began to tremble. His entire body shook as he tumbled down to the ground head first.
Jestino couldn’t believe his eyes as what he had seen was not what he had expected.
“No! This can’t be! How?!”
At that moment, in an incredible twist of fate, the Megaforce Blaster remained perfectly intact. Moreover, behind it, there were the Megaforce Rangers, standing strong and firm. The attack had failed to do anything to them.
With the clash over, the Rangers separated the components of the Megaforce Blaster and withdrew them back away. Then, they walked right over to the fallen Commander and the stunned General.
“Looks like we got the advantage now.” remarked Noah.
“But how?! That blast could’ve vaporized you!” Jestino shrieked as he saw the knocked-out Tezar.
“It was very simple.” explained Troy. “We know how much power your friend here must have been draining the whole time. So, that was when I thought of this. If I could have the Megaforce Blaster charged up to the max, your monster would be tempted to try and have a nice little dessert. The blast could’ve destroyed us or drained our weapons away, but you’ve forgotten about one crucial part.”
“And what is that?!”
“You can never have too much of a good thing.”
“Wait! I get it!” Emma had snapped with realization. “When Tezar blasted us with his draining powers, it hit the energy orb from the Megaforce Blaster.”
“But with the energy orb at full power…” Noah added. “It was simply too much for Tezar to handle.”
“And that had neutralized his own powers as well. He was weakened by a simple case of overeating.” Troy concluded, finally putting an end to the explanation of his brilliant plan. Jestino could only stay dumbfounded as he had clearly underestimated the power and intelligence of the Megaforce Rangers. “That plan was full-proof. And I couldn’t have done it without my friends.” The other Rangers felt a heart-warming sensation inside them as Troy thanked his fellow friends for all the power and support they had given him, even at their worst state.
“BAH!” But Jestino merely scoffed at Troy’s dramatic story and got back to his fighting stance. “I must admit. You Rangers are much smarter than I thought. Well, no matter! Tezar may have lost his draining abilities, but he still has enough juice to put you all down! Get up, Tezar! Destroy them!”
At where the Commander had laid down, he had struggled to get back up. Smoke was rising from his body as a result from the overcharge. Still trembling, he was still able to push himself back up. Once he was back on his feet, Tezar took a few seconds to raise his head, still dizzy. Then, after a troublesome moment of recovery, he was back at full strength, growling with frustration.
“You aren’t going to get away with that, Rangers!” he yelled. “X-Borgs!” The X-Borgs all rallied up behind him and prepared their weapons for the attack.
“Looks like I should spectate this scene.” said Jestino as he teleported out of the scene.
“Okay, Rangers.” Troy called. “It’s time to get Super Mega!” The Rangers then pulled out the extra Super Mega Morpher phones behind their belts and their respective Ranger Keys. Next, they showed them to the opposing force and were ready to morph up so more.
“SUPER MEGA MODE!” They inserted their Keys into the Morphers and twisted them in place. The next thing they know it, colourful lights warped all around them as they covered their bodies. Finally, after a second, the Rangers reappear. This time, they were wearing their pirate-themed suits and helmets. These were their Super Megaforce modes.
“Super Megaforce Red!” Troy flicked his fingers in a pose.
“Super Megaforce Blue!” Noah brushed his helmet in a cool manner.
“Super Megaforce Green!” Jake rubbed his hands down his pants.
“Super Megaforce Yellow!” Gia crossed her arms before a flick of her right finger.
“Super Megaforce Pink!” And Emma bowed down gracefully.
“HYAA!!!” After their roll call, the Rangers clenched their fists and struck their battle stances. The enemy forces also got themselves prepared against the Rangers.
“Who wants some recycled tin cans?” Jake joked. The others complied.
“Now you’re talking!” Gia remarked.
“Come on, guys! Time for some action!”
Within moments, the Rangers quickly picked up their feet and rushed right at the X-Borgs and Tezar, while they too charged at the Rangers, beginning the battle for the power plant.
The fight had been taken to outside the building as the Rangers tossed aside the X-Borgs and continued to fight them head on. There, the scene was far different from what it was earlier. From the pitch black darkness, the area was now lit with dim orange lightings emitted by the fires formed from a few blasts from the X-Borgs, which the Rangers were able to dodge. Now, thanks to this, they could see who they were fighting.
Tezar, meanwhile, went to confront Troy and Noah, leaving the X-Borgs to deal with the rest.
To begin with, Tezar started by thrusting his wires, which sped right for the two Rangers. With rapid speed, the wires zoomed right for them, but Troy and Noah continuously dodged each and every strike. Some strikes pounded on the floor, leaving cracks on the concrete, while others missed into the air. The wires retracted back, giving the Rangers a chance to rush right in, swords armed. They slashed at the Commander, swinging their swords at him. However, Tezar was still strong enough to block their attacks.
On the other hand, Jake, Gia and Emma were handling the X-Borgs with a little more ease. Jake had three X-Borgs trying to bash him with their club weapons.
“You guys just never learn!” Using his sabres, he blocked out their moves and slashed back at them, followed by a few kicks as well.
Gia and Emma had their own confrontations; Gia with her swords and Emma with her blasters. One X-Borg went for Gia from behind…
“Gia, look out!” Warned by Emma, Gia ducked down and managed to avoid getting hit by the X-Borg before slashing it at the stomach at the same time.
Emma continued her shooting spree by blasting the other X-Borgs at her end. With all the X-Borgs around, she put her legs together, aimed her blasters at her sides and spun around, blasting away at the X-Borgs down to the ground.
The remaining X-Borgs charged right at the three of them. But they prepared their blasters and fired at the crowd, easily pinning them down.
“That’s the last of them.” said Emma. “Now let’s go help Troy and Noah.” Gia and Jake nodded in agreement and went to their friends’ aid.
But as they got there, Troy and Noah were merely tossed aside by the sheer might of the Action Commander. The monster stepped right over at them.
“Hahaha! This is just too easy!” Tezar laughed as he raised his left arm at them and allowed his two wires to stretch out at them. They then coiled around the Rangers, tightening them in a very strong grip. Troy and Noah could barely breathe as the wires constricted them tighter and tighter.
“Drgh! I… c-can’t… move…” said Noah weakly.
“Too… tight…” added Troy, just as pained.
“Troy! Noah!” The three other Rangers arrived to see their friends caught in a very uncomfortable predicament. Then, having had enough watching around, Emma jumped into the air, pulled out her blaster and shot a three-round burst at Tezar. Taking the full blow, Tezar had stepped back from the recoil, causing him to release his downed enemies and retracted his wires. Troy and Noah both got up, trembling from the force of the constrictions. The others rushed to help them up.
“Man… I know getting tied up on something was stressful, but this…” complained Noah.
“Heads up guys.” Troy cautioned his team, looking at Tezar, who was still recovering from Emma’s attack. “This isn’t over yet.”
“Ergh! Why that does it!” Tezar raged at the Rangers. “Of all the colours, I absolutely despise pink!”
Emma, having felt a mixture of annoyance and mischief inside her, walked right up and pointed her weapons at the monster again.
“Oh really…?” she uttered. “Then I think I know how we can take you on.” She then turned her attention to her allies. “You guys thinking what I’m thinking?”
“I believe so.” Troy agreed. “Let’s give a little bit of pink power!” At the ready, the Rangers pressed on their belt buckles and out came a Ranger key each. All of them had one thing in common; they were all pink in colour. Inserting them to their Morphers, the Rangers began to shift forms yet again. And this time, it would be a most unusual technique.
“LEGENDARY PINK RANGER MODE!” The Morphers did their trick and turned the Rangers into different Pink Rangers. Unlike Gia and Emma, though, the male Rangers did not have the skirts that the original Rangers would have used before, sporting the male designs of their respective Ranger forms.
“Time Force Pink!” Troy was wearing a Pink Ranger uniform with a bit of white covering his chest, along with a pink heart-shaped space at the centre. His helmet was not black and pink, with a visor also in the shape of a heart and a silver line coming down at the top of it.
“Pink Samurai Ranger!” Jake came with a Japanese-style suit with two black lines merged into a ‘Y’ at the chest, and the kanji of Heaven as the shape of the helmet visor.
“Operation Overdrive Pink Ranger!” Noah’s form had a wide white line from his neck to the metallic leg guards, with a compass-like symbol with a pair of black and red arrows.
“Pink Turbo Ranger!” Gia was wearing a Pink Ranger suit with a car-themed helmet, complete with headlights along a railing.
“Zeo Ranger One, Pink!” Lastly, Emma sported a Ranger suit with a white and gold shoulder pad stretching from her shoulders and a helmet with an oval-shaped visor.
They all lined up, with the signature weapons of their Legendary modes at the ready. Troy carried a pair of swords with transparent blades. Jake held a katana-like sword with a disk joining the hilt with the blade. Noah had a large blaster that resembled a hair dryer in one way. Gia had with her a huge bow with two points coming out at the front. Emma wielded a wide shield-like disc with a gold line on top of its black and pink surface.
Tezar was now even more disgusted, what with five Rangers now dressed in his most hated colour.
“What the?!” he exclaimed. “Five Pink Rangers?! Now I’ve seen everything!”
After that, the team ran towards the stunned monster. Troy and Jake were the first to attack, with the former jumping up in the air and swung his swords in a clockwise rotation, projecting an actual clock behind him with his arms at the top and bottom, like a 6 o’ clock position.
“Time Strike!” He then struck Tezar by swinging his swords at their opposite directions. The two strikes simultaneously slashed at him, reeling him back.
“My turn!” Jake was next, taking his katana and spun the wheel disk. The sword then transformed into a metallic hand fan. Jake inserted another ring-shaped disk onto a point at the back of the fan. “Sky Fan! Hah!” He then tossed the fan like a boomerang and the weapon spun right towards the monster, cutting right through him. This repeated as the fan came around and sliced through again and again before finally returning to Jake.
“Okay! How about this one?! Drive Geyser!” Noah pulled the trigger on his weapon and it shot out a stream of fluid that hit Tezar with pinpoint accuracy. In contact, the fluid all over his body then exploded in a small explosion that sent the monster flying. “Yeah! Now that’s the power of H2O!”
Gia and Emma both ran for Tezar, when the Commander shot a laser blast right at them. The two Rangers jumped away from the danger. At the same time, Gia readied her bow weapon and aimed right at Tezar.
“Wind Fire! Hya!” The weapon then fired multiple pink laser bolts at the enemy, spinning him round and round.
“And now, for the finish!” Emma jumped over at Tezar, prompting him to shoot out more electric bolts at her. But Emma used her shield to deflect the energy blasts back at him. The blasts hit the ground around him, rendering him helpless to stop them. Emma landed gracefully on the ground before dashing at him with her shield used as a melee weapon. “Zeo Power Disc!” She swung her shield at him; the sharp silver edges of the weapon cutting him down.
After a few strikes, the battered monster could take no more and rolled off. He got up weakly, crouching down and held his stomach to support himself.
“Dgh…! I… can’t be defeated by a bunch of teenagers!”
“Time to lighten up this atmosphere!” The Rangers pressed on their buckles again and this time, out came Ranger Keys in white. They took out the Keys and locked them to the Morphers.
“LEGENDARY WHITE RANGER MODE!”
When they transformed, their forms changed again.
“Mighty Morphin White Ranger!” Troy was now a White Ranger with a gold and black battle armour and a white sword with a curved blade and a tiger’s head at the other end.
“Dino Thunder White! Drago Power!” Noah was dressed in a white suit with spikes lining down the sides of his stomach, and a helmet that a horned crest sticking out above its red visor.
“SPD Omega Ranger!” Jake thrusted his fist out, showing off his Ranger suit with a golden V on his right side and a blue left sleeve.
“Jungle Fury Rhino Ranger!” Gia slammed her fist down as she was seen wearing a white rhino-like Ranger suit with black and red shoulder pads and a similarly-coloured belt and a horned helmet over her head.
“Noble Tiger! White Wild Force Ranger!” Emma wore another tiger-themed Ranger suit with a gold strap wrapped around her right arm and a golden tiger symbol on her left chest.
“Oh great.” groaned Tezar sarcastically, after he recovered from his fall.
Troy rushed right at Tezar, drawing his sword and struck at him when within range. After a few slashes, Tezar attempted to shoot his electric bolts at him, but Troy jumped out of the way and flipped backwards. When he had Tezar in his sights, Troy turned his sword around, with the tiger head now upright.
“Fire, Saba!” Pressing onto the hilt, Troy had fired red lasers from the fierce eyes of Saba, hitting Tezar with remarkable precision. Troy landed onto the ground safely afterwards.
“Neat trick!” remarked Noah. “Drago Sword!” Noah flew towards the stunned Tezar and slashed right through in a fiery force. Tezar had fell down after the attack.
“He’s down, but is he out?” called Jake in an announcer’s voice. “Didn’t think so. Omega Ranger, Hyper Mode!” He held a stick handle at the side of his wrist Morpher and twisted it twice as if it were a motorcycle handle. This allowed him to increase his speed to extreme limits. He then launched a flurry of punches with his left fist, which to Tezar, was a rapid barrage of endless punches, suppressing his movements.
“He’s mine!” Gia shouted in excitement. “Jungle Blade!” She unleashed an earth-shattering tremor by slamming her weapon’s blade down to the floor, causing the ground to crack underneath her and Tezar. The mighty force of the shaking was enough to send Tezar flying back, landing on the ground just seconds before the tremors stopped.
“White Tiger Baton!” Emma spun her white and pink baton and bashed at Tezar at the stomach and arms before finally lunging at him to the chest. “Tiger Thrust! Hargh!”
Tezar was thrown almost a few feet away from Emma and crashed into a power pole. The tall wooden pole had split in two and toppled over, causing the wires to snap and spark frantically.
“Argh… Duhh… HARGHH!” The injured Commander managed to rise to his feet afterwards, but he was so weak that he couldn’t stick around to fight anymore. He had stumbled off and dizzily walked away before running off from the area.
“Man, why are you retreating? Had enough already?” Noah laughed. After that, the Rangers de-morphed back to their Super Mega Modes.
“I call it, ‘fighting backwards’ Rangers!” Tezar ranted back as he dashed off away from the power plant.
“Come on guys.” Troy called. “We need to beat him if we want that power back.”
“Better call the Silver Guardians.” suggested Emma, before she used her Morpher and dialled in a few numbers. Holding up the phone to her ear, she waited for the recipient to pick up. Then, the call was answered. “Hey Wes. We managed to chase down the source of the power loss. We’re going to pursue him and we might need some backup.”
“I wish we could help, Emma.” responded Wes on the other end.
“But we’re kind of stuck at our end…”
As luck would have it, Wes was seen, in a set of problems of his own. He removed the caller on his wrist from mouth-point and did a spin kick, hitting what appeared to be an X-Borg. Behind him, Eric was also busy blasting away two more X-Borgs with his Quantum Defender. Wes punched another X-Borg in the face before coming back to his call.
“And it looks like we can’t go anywhere. You Rangers have to go on without us. We’ll rendezvous with you guys as soon as we can. Over and out.”
“Right.” Emma sighed before closing her Morpher and putting it back to her belt. She then turned to the other Rangers. “Looks like we’re on our own.”
“No worries.” Troy assured. “We can take him. Let’s go.”
“Right!” The Rangers went out to chase down the runaway monster out of the power plant, leaving behind the Silver Guardians to confront the rest of the Empire’s forces.
December 4th, 2015,
Lake near New York,
Tezar was scurrying away into a rocky coast around a huge lake just near the power plant. He ran clumsily along the water from his wounds from the battle before. Then, he had stopped to catch his breath. All that fighting had left him extremely exhausted to even make long bursts.
“Whew!” he panted. “There… I… I think I lost them. Those pesky Rangers…”
“Pesky huh?” Tezar couldn’t believe his ears, but when he turned around, there he saw the dreadful sight of five Rangers just standing there, expecting him to react.
“DRGH! Can’t you just let me go and regenerate?!” yelled Tezar.
“No way.” Troy answered strictly, pointing his sabre at Tezar. “You aren’t going anywhere with the power you stole from the plant. Surrender now.”
“Never!” Tezar responded, with lightning bolts surging around his body. The Rangers, however, were not the least intimidated. The only thing they did was to again pull another Ranger Key each and were ready to switch Ranger forms.
“Then let’s have one last showdown!” They swung their Ranger Keys to their Morphers.
“LEGENDARY RANGER MODE! MYSTIC FORCE! MAGICAL SOURCE, MYSTIC FORCE!” After that, an enchanting circle of light formed above the Rangers before coming down past them. As the circle passed through, the Rangers’ suits changed once again. The caped suits were the same as the one Noah wore the last time the Empire attacked, albeit with different colours for different Rangers.
After the transformation, the Rangers swung their capes around as they spun and made the signature Mystic Force poses.
“Power Rangers, MYSTIC FORCE!” They then pulled out the Mystic Morpher phones from their belts and flipped them open. Jake took a look at his phone and saw the buttons labelled ‘1’, ‘7’ and ‘End Call’ shining.
“Whoa! Check this out.” Jake said with awe.
“It looks like some sort of Spell Code.” deduced Noah.
“Well, let’s test it out.” suggested Emma.
“I’m all over it.” Troy and the others swung their phones down and the phone screens flipped, revealing a red crystal each. Next, they went ahead and typed in the shining numbers. Finally pressing the ‘Enter’ button at the top centre, the Rangers pointed their phones up into the air, with the phone wands shining brighter than before.
“Ancient Power! Mystic Strike!” They slashed the wands forward at Tezar’s direction, launching coloured blasts of magic upon him. Soon, Tezar found himself enveloped in a blinding light as he also felt himself tightening in a strong grip. When the light vanished, he found himself tied up, literally.
“Huh? Hey! What gives?!” He was struggling to free himself from being wrapped up in his own metallic wires. He tried and tried to break free, but now he had realized how strong his wires really were when he could feel the tight squeeze himself.
“Whoo! That showed him!” Gia gloated. Jake, followed by the other Rangers, then drew out a weapon from their holsters; a double-bladed scythe-like staff that magically transformed into an assortment of unique weapons. “Let me try this! Magi Staff, Crossbow Mode!” Gia aimed her crossbow-styled staff and fired streaks of electric energy at the tied up Tezar, who took the blows painfully.
“Magi Staff! Water Wave!” Noah casted a spell that summoned explosions of water upon Tezar.
“Argh! Pfttt!” Tezar choked on the strong force of the water splashing on his face.
“Magi Staff! Tornado Blast!” Emma used her staff to focus strong winds into a pink, but furious tornado, sweeping Tezar from his feet and sent him spinning the sky, followed by the sharp cuts of razor winds before landing down on the ground hard.
“Axe Mode! WAAARRGH!” Then, Jake struck the ground with his axe-shaped staff to produce a powerful fissure. Out of the cracks, multiple large vines grew right out with lightning speed and began whipping Tezar in a barrage of sharp and spiky strikes.
Finally, Troy grabbed his Magi Staff in Sword Mode and soared to the sky, leaving behind a trail of blazing fire. Then, he swooped down to the ground, producing an astral form of a Phoenix around him. With only a few inches to the ground, the Red Ranger made a sharp ascent and zoomed right at Tezar. With his sword drawn back, he made one powerful slash, slicing right through Tezar’s body.
With the powerful force of the strike, the shocking monster had felt the shock of his life for a change. He could feel the intense heat searing in his body, burning him in the inside. The heat was too much for him and thus, Tezar had begun to lose his senses, his body becoming numb and he tumbled down to the ground.
The Super Mega Rangers soon de-morphed again, returning to their original forms.
“It looks like he couldn’t stand the heat.” joked Emma.
“Um… think again.” Gia pointed at Tezar, who was slowly standing up, despite the tremendous amount of damage he took. His wire had untangled, but it slumped to the ground after taking such a hit from the powers of the Mystic Force.
“You… have not… seen the last of… me yet, Rangers.” Tezar could barely stand and talk as smoke drifted from his body.
“No problem.” said Troy. “Let’s finish this!” First, the Rangers deployed their Super Mega Blasters. They took out their Super Megaforce Keys and inserted them into the cylinders on the blasters before locking them in place. The Keys charged the weapons to the max, with the Rangers then aiming them at Tezar, bent on one final strike.
Tezar could not move a muscle. His body had been severely damaged up to the point that he was not able to stop himself from being caught in the firing of the Rangers’ blasters. For him, it was the end of the line.
“Super Mega Blast!” Finally, with the pull of the trigger, the blasters opened fire and five coloured projectiles sped right at Tezar. The laser bullets hit their mark, exploding on impact. The explosions were more than enough to rupture Tezar down. And thus, with all bullets hit, the Action Commander had finally blown up with them.
All that was left were bits of metal and severed wires. That was all that remained from this power-hungry alien.
“Yes!” The Rangers cheered as they exchanged high-fives. They then morphed back to their Megaforce modes as they watched the burning ashes of Tezar blow away to the winds.
“Hey. Look!” Noah shouted, pointing back at the nearby power plant.
There, a set of lights had flickered back on, eliminating the darkness caused by Tezar’s grand feast. Then, inside the power station, the turbines were reactivated, spinning around and around.
In the building where Wes, Eric and a pair of Silver Guardians had successfully eliminated the X-Borgs, they soon noticed that the lights at the ceiling had come back on. They looked at each other, knowing that their successors had completed their mission.
December 4th, 2015,
Back in the city, some people were seen shining their flashlights or mobile phone lights on a tragic scene. Three men were giving it their all to pull another injured river from a car wreck caused by the blinding darkness and lack of traffic control. The man had some blood stains on his right leg and a few scratches and bruises on his face. As they dragged him away from the burning wreckage, they then noticed something had happened. Once the man was safely on the sidewalk, above him, a miraculous occurrence happened as the streetlight above him had been reactivated. The shining light was then followed by another, and then the traffic lights went back on. Within minutes, the city’s lights had come back to life. Power had been restored, causing widespread celebrations from the crowd down below, knowing that this was the work of the heroes of Earth.
December 4th, 2015,
Lake near New York,
The Rangers watched from afar. They could see the dark city transform back into a city of light in an instant. They couldn’t help but feel very elated about the success of their battle against Tezar.
“Alright! Power’s has been restored!” Jake jumped for joy.
“The city is safe once again.” added Gia.
“Now that’s a light show!” cheered Emma.
“Morphinominal!” Noah punched into the air.
However, as they watched they city, they were unaware that someone had been watching from a distant rock.
“DRGH! Those fools did it again!” There, an angry Jestino stomped his foot on the ground as he threw his fan down and crushed it under his feet.
December 4th, 2015,
Up above the orbit, Jestino was being watched by an equally disappointed set of spectators.
“ARGH!” A furious Empress Verinora slammed her fist on her throne. Down below, her butler, Fedalis was cowering from his master’s wrath. Next to him, a pair of unsatisfied Generals were secretly discussing Jestino’s failure.
“We warned her.” whispered Kalach.
“As expected from the ‘pinnacle of perfection’.” added Arkanos.
“Fedalis!” screamed Verinora. “Fire the Megafiers!” Fedalis ran right towards the big red button and pressed on it. The horse statues of the ship then fired a pair of purple beams onto the planet below.
December 4th, 2015,
Lake near New York,
The beams had fired down on where Tezar had exploded. From there, the remains had risen up in the air and formed a giant humanoid form. Then, with a bright flash of light, the being became a giant form of Tezar.
“HARGH! HAHAHA!!!” The now towering monster was now almost ten times taller than the Rangers. “I’m one lean mean shocking machine now!” The monster then stomped away, heading right for the power plant again.
The Rangers down below watched as Tezar made his way back to the power plant.
“We got to stop him!” commanded Troy. “The Silver Guardians are still there!”
“Let’s call in the Zords!” exclaimed Noah. Acknowledging Noah’s call, the team pulled out their Mega Morphers and summoned their Zord Power Cards. They placed their Cards into the Morphers and called for their Zords.
“Summoning Mecha Zords!”
The Rangers pointed their Morphers up in the air, calling forth their Zords.
Up in the sky, the Rangers’ Zord Heads came out of nowhere and went right for a few vehicles; a jumbo jet, a fighter jet, a submarine, a construction vehicle and a bullet train. The heads then attached themselves to the front of the vehicles and transformed into large Zords. The newly-developed machines then sped right for the Rangers, who were ready to start the combination process.
“Alright, here they come!” Jake pointed at the sky, noticing the five Zords approaching from the other side of the lake.
“Okay. Let’s take it to the next level, gang!” Troy pumped his fist into the air as he commanded the other Rangers to rally him to their Zords. They made a huge leap and they warped into the cockpits of the Zords.
Troy had hopped onto his seat and grabbed the controls, with his Dragon Mechazord now soaring above the clouds.
“Time to form the Megazord!” Once again, the Rangers summoned a Power Card each and inserted them into their Morphers. Once locked in, the Zords went right into their formations. The Snake Mechazord joined with the Tiger Mechazord to form legs. The Dragon Mechazord landed on top of the legs and transformed into a torso section. The Phoenix and Shark Mechazords zoomed at the sides and formed the arms, linking with the Dragon body. Finally, the head of the Megazord flipped right out and the winged ears rotated upright.
The Megazord landed down on the ground after the combination and was ready for battle.
“Gosei Great Megazord, Ready!”
The Megazord positioned for combat as Tezar slowly walked around it. After an intense stare-down, the two had finally come to blows.
First, the Megazord made a punch at Tezar. But the monster was able to whack it off. It made another punch, but it too was blocked.
Then, it was Tezar’s turn to strike back. He swung his arm downwards and scratched the Megazord at the chest. He then kneed the Megazord on the left leg, causing it to lose its balance and fall to the ground at kneeling position. Pinned to the ground, the Megazord could not stop Tezar from giving it an uppercut to the face, sending it tumbling backwards.
“WHHOAHH!” The Rangers inside held on tight from the impact of the punch as they felt the Megazord fly backwards. With a loud crash, the cockpit rocked vigorously again. The Megazord was now lying on the floor, unable to move any further.
“Hehehe.” Tezar chuckled as he approached the Megazord. “Now then, if I can’t have the city’s power, then I could use your Megazord instead!” He extended his arm out front and fired his large wires at the Megazord. The plugs at the end of the cords pierced right into the metal plating of the Megazord. What came next was a real thrilling sensation as he began to siphon energy from the Megazord while at the same time, he struck it with a huge amount of voltage, causing sparks and blasts on the Megazord.
The sparks managed to enter the Megazord’s cockpit, distorting the Rangers’ ability to man the Megazord.
“Argh!” The Rangers yelled in pain.
“Whoa!” Jake exclaimed.
“He’s draining our Megazord’s power!” Emma shouted.
“Noah! Any ideas?” asked Troy while trying to withstand the electric shocks.
“Drgh! Hang on!” But Noah was also trying to deal with the pain. “Can’t think… or else my brains will fry first. Doesn’t he ever want to know how it feels like?” But at that point, he snapped his fingers in realization. “That’s it! We’ll just have to discharge the energy and shoot it out back at him!”
“How are we going to do that?” Gia wondered.
“I’ll work on that. Just give me a minute.”
“We don’t even have a few seconds. Hurry!” Noah quickly logged into his interface on the console and typed in a few codes. With each passing time, however, it was becoming extremely difficult to manage the controls. The Rangers didn’t lose faith in their comrade and held on some more.
“Better be quick, Noah.” Jake called. “Cos’ I don’t know how much more this bucket of bolts can take.”
“Megazord shields are failing!” reported Emma as she saw a silhouette of the Megazord on her console being drained of its colour, becoming a hollow shape.
“Working on it!” Noah said as he typed in some more.
Outside, Tezar was having a feast, consuming the Megazord’s energy, further weakening it. The Megazord was slowly losing its balance as it was helplessly losing power.
Back inside, Noah was still trying to implement some lines of code that might help them counter the monster’s attack. Then, with one final push of a button, the screen had shown ‘Re-Directing Power’.
“I got it!” he cheered. “Let’s see if he likes this!” Noah pushed the red button again.
“What the-?!” Tezar was still feeding on the Megazord when he felt a little bit of tingling in his tentacles. Next, that tingling was replaced with a surging and shocking feeling as a wave of electricity was fired back from the Megazord and right into his own body. The power of the electricity completely gave him total damage, forcing him to finally release his tentacles to be free from the pain. Consequently, the Megazord was able to stand up again.
“Alright, we’re free.” Noah said. “And we managed to siphon back our stolen energy from him. We’re back at full power.”
“Then it’s time to settle this.” Troy pushed his control stick forward, causing the Megazord to move forward.
As it headed for Tezar, the monster attempted to stop it with his electric attacks, zapping at the Megazord with whatever energy he had left. But the shots kept on missing and hit the ground around the Megazord. Sparks flew as the robot walked on and on without stopping.
Within range, the Megazord pulled out the sword from its back and slashed it at him, cutting through his right shoulder. Then it slashed him sideways at the chest. The Megazord then made an uppercut at his chin.
“Argh! I am really starting to get real fed up with you rats!” yelled Tezar.
“It’s not over yet, Commander.” Troy warned. “It’s time to put you down for good.” It was time to finish the job. The Rangers called for their Power Cards and slotted them right into their Morphers.
The Megazord charged its weapon up and raised it in the air.
“Victory Charge!” Five Power Cards from behind the Megazord zapped at Tezar and stunned him, freezing him in place.
“Wha-? No!” Tezar yelled helplessly.
“And now, have a taste of the…”
“Mega Strike!” With its sword blazing, the Megazord made one last slash, striking Tezar with all of its might.
Tezar was sliced up as the burning blade seared into his body, greatly wounding the Commander.
“DARGH! N- AAARGHHH!!!” The monster’s condition was critically terrible. So terrible that all of his power had been vanquished. Soon, his life-force eventually swept away as his lifeless body toppled down and exploded.
“That’s the way! Yes!” Gia cheered as the rest of the team joined in the celebration.
“Rangers of Hexagon! Mission is accomplished!” Troy made the victory call.
December 4th, 2015,
“BLAST IT!” A roaring voice echoed through the bridge as Verinora slammed her fists in pure rage. Fedalis was seen cowering behind the throne as he took cover from the Empress screeching yell. Her temper had continued to get the best of her as she continuously cursed at the Rangers. Down below, a very nervous Jestino, who had fled the battle without doing anything to stop the Rangers, crouched down with his head down, shivering and unable to look up at his master. The two other Generals, Kalach and Arkanos, could only look on in disappointment.
“Hmph. Just look at you, Jestino.” mocked Kalach.
“All bark and not bite.” added Arkanos. Their taunts angered the scared General, causing him to frantically stand up and face them.
“Hey! Like I had to ruin my perfectly beautiful face!” protested Jestino.
“You probably won’t have it anymore when our Empress is done with you. Now leave our sight before any more harm is done!”
“Hmph!” Jestino huffed at them, before trotting away to the exit. The two Generals looked back at their Empress, who was still furious over her defeat.
“Those pesky Rangers will not be so lucky next time… I SWEAR IT!” Again, the raging Empress cursed and slammed on her arm rests.
“Now I know where Prince Vekar got his temper.” whispered Kalach.
“It’s a good thing her Highness doesn’t have Vrak’s carelessness.” added Arkanos.
December 4th, 2015,
Gosei Command Center,
Back at the Command Center, the Rangers, having returned home, were celebrating their recent success. They were joined by an overjoyed Tensou, rolling away in pure excitement. Gosei, along with Tommy and Katherine, were watching their friends having a ball high-fiving each other.
“Now that’s what I call a Mega Win!” cheered Jake.
“You got that right.” agreed Gia as she put an arm over Jake’s shoulder, causing him to blush. Katherine and Tommy then walked up to the Rangers.
“That was some fine moves you had there, Rangers.” praised Katherine. “And I just loved it when you went all pink on that monster.”
“Yeah, and not to mention letting him see the whites of your suits.” added Tommy, with everyone laughing at his joke.
“Well done, Rangers.” Gosei called as the Rangers turned to him. “I am very proud of your accomplishments. You were able to pull through despite your own self-doubts. Your teamwork and your dedication to helping one another has proven to be far stronger than any weapon. That was what pulled you through when you were using the Megaforce Blaster. And you, Troy, had demonstrated what it means to be the team leader. To keep your team in high spirits is the most important trait of all in a leader. And for that, I am very proud of you.”
Gosei’s speech had enlightened Troy, causing him to smile proudly, knowing that it was his leadership that managed to raise his team’s spirits, earning him pats on the back by his teammates.
“We all are.” added Tommy. “You guys did very well on your mission. Now, you deserve a god rest. Dismissed.” With Tommy concluding the moment, the Rangers shook hands with Tommy and Katherine and walked out of the Command Center, with Tensou following close behind.
“Those kids are really something.” said Katherine.
“They sure are.” agreed Tommy. “It’d be nice for me to get back in my old White Ranger days again.”
“Me too, Tommy.” Katherine said as she rested her head on Tommy’s shoulder.
“That time will come soon…” Gosei quietly spoke. “We need to get along with the plan to restore the powers of old to the other Rangers.” Tommy stepped forward to Gosei, with hesitation on his face.
“I’m not so sure of this, Gosei.” he said. “Can the other Rangers handle it?”
“They are essential to the plan. They will have to face the truth sooner or later…”
Another day, another victory. Will the Rangers be able to prevail the next time the Empire comes? And will Gosei’s plan be put to action without difficulty? Just catch the next episode!
Hexagon Data Entry #1
Log Name: The Power Rangers
For years, the universe has been caught in the eternal conflict between good and evil. When evil strikes, the side of good counters back with a team of superheroes. That team consists of a collection of unique and talented individuals, which added with the valour and determination for peace, were called the Power Rangers. They exist for one purpose; to rid the universe of the forces of evil.
The first-ever recorded Power Rangers have appeared on the planet Earth during the feudal ages of Japan, when the ancestors of the Samurai Rangers first morphed to defend the country from a Nighlok invasion, although some modern-day Rangers have actually lived in times earlier, like Merrick Baliton, the Silver Wild Force Ranger who was from a time almost 3,000 years before the current war against the Empire. The first modern-day Rangers were the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, who in the year 1993, had fought against the evil forces of Rita Repulsa and her band of alien conquerors.
Usually, a team of Power Rangers would consist of a group of teenagers with attitude. Young souls with strength, agility, endurance and above all, a heart of pure good and light, and teamwork.
These Rangers were chosen by some of the wisest beings of the universe, who were then to train them to their full potential.
Given the power of the Morphing Grid to Morph into heroes in coloured suits, they can utilize many different weapons and also have access to towering robots known as Zords, which many can combine to form larger robots called Megazords.
Ever since the era of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, one team of Rangers fought one generation of villains. When their respective villains have been defeated, the team would pass the torch and give the roles of the Power Rangers to a new team of heroes. But that all changed when the Armada of Emperor Mavro came to Earth. This prompted the current team of Power Rangers at the time, the Megaforce Rangers, to unite with the entire force of their predecessors to destroy the Armada.
Now, with the return of the Empire, the Megaforce Rangers have become part of a much larger role. An organization called Hexagon has been formed to fight against the new threat and reunite the entire teams again to fight a battle of epic proportions.
The Power Rangers have always fought to defend humanity and the universe and have remained loyal to their duties for almost twenty generations. Even now, with a change of traditions, they will stand tall and protect the Earth and the universe…
…for the Power will be with them to the end.
