  • My favorite episode.

    This is the episode of which I have the most vivid memories from my childhood. The basic premise is while the Rangers are test flying a new battleship, Zach's arm comes to life and builds itself a body of its own. The thing that makes the episode so effective is since it's a test flight, the ship is short-staffed and only given minimally supplied, leading to searches in dark halls for the creepy antagonist. I also realized that this wasn't your average cartoon when the arm opens an airlock with two redshirt crew members inside. The show didn't go into detail about it, but the implication is heavy that they were sucked into space and died. And when time's running out at the end, it's all up to Goose, the coolest character by far, to save the day. This was easily one of the best episodes of a criminally overlooked series.
